5 Things You should Consider before Becoming a Beachbody Coach

So you are looking into this whole “COACHING” thing?

Here are 5 things you need to know before making the BEST decision for YOUR life!


#1 – Coaching is NOT a “Get Rich Quick Scheme”

If your number one priority is making bukoo bucks… You might as well save your $39.95 (sign up cost) and keep looking for the right opportunity for you… Because coaching will be a big fat waste of your time… NOT because you cannot end up making BIG MONEY… because you DEFINITELY CAN… but because in THIS business, the only people who make money are the ones who actually care to make a difference and help people change the course of their lives! Your income will ALWAYS be a direct reflection of the number of lives you help change!

#2 – You have to “BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN… YOUR BUSINESS!”
You’ve probably wondered, what the heck do you actually DO as a coach, just SELL stuff? Absolutely not! It’s SO much more than that! As coaches we are BEACONS of light. (okay, slightly dramatic… but it’s TRUE!!!) We use our life, and the way we live it, to inspire and encourage others. What happens when you see a friend that you haven’t seen in a few months… and they have lost 20lbs, are beaming with energy and a whole new outlook on life? Well, I know what I DO… I ask them, “What the heck have you been doing girl!? You look INCREDIBLE!!! I want your secret!” — That’s the best way I can explain the basis of coaching. YOU are that person who, in this story, committed to changing their lives for the better… and thus EVERYONE around you wants to know YOUR SECRET. Mine, well, it’s BEACHBODY! P90X first changed my life after having my daughter London… then came Shakeology that literally was a health GAME CHANGER for me and has helped me to avoid being sick for coming on 3 years!!! and NOW, COACHING… which has taken me from a BANKRUPT BARTENDER with zero business experience… to a Top ranking Business owner making well over six figures a year… in just TWO YEARS mind you! WHY? Because I focused on changing ME first… Then shared my “secrets” with others who followed suit! 

 #3 – Coaches are Independent Business Owners.

When you become a coach you don’t the work for BEACHBODY… You work for YOURSELF! No one gives you deadlines, tells you how much you have to work, when you have to work, WHERE you have to work, nor do they decide your salary… YOU DO! And yea, I KNOW… SOUNDS INCREDIBLE, right? *and it IS*… IF you are willing to learn to manage your time effectively, stay consistent, be self-motivated and most of all, self-disciplined. MOST of us have never worked for ourselves… We have had all of our tasks and responsibilities laid out for us, a BOSS to hold us accountable and scare us from losing our job if we didn’t stay on point, a pre-determined salary or hourly rate GUARANTEED to us (even if it wasn’t great… we at least knew exactly what we would make.) and business hours (good ole 9-5!). The BEST comparison I can give you to describe the difference between working for someone else and working for yourself is the difference between HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE. Everyone HAS to go to High School… there is set rules, schedules, learning materials, teachers, subjects, tests, etc… But college… College is for the ELITE, the ones who want MORE out of life! The ones who are willing to take responsibility and make something of themselves. No one calls your mom when you skip class… tells you what to wear, which major to pick, nor which class times you will choose. If you drop out… Well, that’s on YOU. Owning your own business is the SAME WAY… So are you ready to Graduate to the BIG LEAGUES?

#4 – Perceived PERFECTION = NO CONNECTION

Your success as a coach is directly linked to how CONNECTED others feel to you. So many times when I talk to people who are trying to decide whether or not they are going to become a coach… They mention “not being at their goal body yet” as one of their reasons they doubt they would succeed. TRUTH IS… People don’t connect to PERFECTION… They connect to your STORY. The struggles you overcome on your JOURNEY… and the honesty and openness you are willing to share with them. THOSE are the things that inspire them to change! You want them to think, “Well, if SHE can…. So can I!”… NOT “Well, she is perfect… so, of course she succeeded!” Until I opened up and shared my story of losing myself after pregnancy… and having to file bankruptcy after acquiring $400,000 in medical debt…. Only THEN did they start to see I was human, just like THEM… with struggles, hold backs and experiences that I could have let hold me down. Question is: Are you willing to let down your guard and share? 

 #5 BIG DREAMERS make BIG DOERS!

ALL successful coaches have ONE THING in common… They started with BIG DREAMS that fueled their fire to succeed! You have to have a CLEAR vision for YOUR LIFE and know what you are working for! Just like college… You go through the learning process (not making money) all the while KNOWING it will be WORTH IT in the end when you graduate and land the career of your dreams. Only difference here is that college could put you THOUSANDS of dollars in DEBT with no guarantee of a job… when in Beachbody you can actually MAKE MONEY while learning the ins and outs of your trade. IMAGINE if you spent FOUR FOCUSED YEARS, the way people do in college, on BEACHBODY!!! You would likely be earning more than most DOCTORS by the time you “graduated” with no debt to speak of! My point is… You have to know where you want to go… and more importantly WHY! The more defined your WHY… the HIGHER you FLY!


I hope this gave you a better idea of whether or not coaching is right for you and your goals, it is truly not meant for everyone… but when it lands in the lap of the person described above… MAGIC HAPPENS and DREAMS COME TRUE!

When and If you are ready to take the next step… I would love to lock arms with you and be your Coaching “professor” of sorts to show you why I love this business so very much and why I think you just may too! When you become a coach on my team… Your dreams become MY dreams… and THIS dreamer is most certainly a DOER!

Let’s make it count!

Erica Stein is a total GO GETTER! She never ceases to amaze me. She is working on her future NOW. There is something special about people who realize the power of their dreams and their ability to help stretch others to their full potential. 
After spending two hours on the phone with her, I know she is going to work hard to drive others to succeed. Annnnd how cool is this…her family owns a turkey farm in PA. All organic, all natural =)  

I am so ECSTATIC to welcome Kasey Wooten She is one of the MOST amazing woman I know!! She continually supports, encourages and uplifts everyone on the team!

And lastly….we have a guy! Kevin I want to send a BIG congratulations out to you and Miss Stephanie!!! I can’t wait to find out if you are having a boy or a girl!!! I wish you two all of the happiness in the world. True soul mates! 
Soooo why do people become coaches? Everyone joins the business for a different reason…and we are all in different phases of our life. 
My initial reason for signing up was to get the discount and be accountable to the workouts. Then changed…and my passion became paying it forward to help others achieve the same success. The possibilities are endless. As I have progressed in my own goals, I realized that I could really make my passion…my FUTURE. I’ve been blessed to make this my full time job (dream come true!!) so THANK YOU everyone for supporting and believing in me!
But it’s not all about me! 
Here is what my team said when I asked them WHY they signed up!!!
Beth: “I have several reasons why I wanted to become a coach. I always want to strive to be a better person and become a better version of myself and I know that with beach body that is possible. I love that as a coach you can make a positive impact on peoples lives. I can’t think of a better feeling that because you cared and pushed somebody you helped them become a better version of themselves as well. I’m looking forward to actually completing a full bb program and be an example for people in my life. I also want to be financially free and financially Independent. I always want to love what I do, and I love that coaching is an opportunity I get to have.”


Lisa: There are a couple of reasons WHY I joined on as a beachbody coach. First is the aspect of money. I work full time, go to college and still struggle to pay my bills. I don’t want to live like that. I want to be able to live comfortably. I want to save money to buy my first home within the next two years. I want to be free of debt & to be able to pay off my student loan debt (or at least stop accumulating it). If I could pay cash for the rest of my college education it would be GREAT!!  Secondly, looking at people like you two (Linds & Kati)… You’re making a difference in people’s lives!  That is so inspiring to me. 
I want to be someone that people can look up to, someone that can help people better their lives. I look at my parents & some of my close friends & I know I want them to start leading healthier lives. If I can in anyway inspire them to do that I would be a very happy girl. Now to specifics. Financially I would like to be making an extra $500 a month within the year. (not sure if this is high or low as far as possibilities, but even that much money would make a huge difference to me). I want to be diamond by the end of 2013 🙂 I want to have my Mom signed on as a permanent customer & have her leading a healthier lifestyle. Tack my Dad onto that list too!  I want my credit cards paid off by this time next year. ok:) I will end my list here. Sorry it was so long winded!!”

Tara: “Congratulations on your dream come true of living in California – A crazy dream of mine would be to move to a beach somewhere in the Carolinas! But another dream would be to be able to be home with my daughter – I am currently a full time student so I do get to be home with her, I will be finished with my bachelors next December. But I would love to have a career doing something that I love, that doesn’t feel like work and get to be home with her. I want to have my cake and eat it too!  My vision – no one has ever asked me that before – well right now we plan on getting out of the military in 2 years – and for a brief moment we will have to move back in with my parents *yikes!!* until all of our things get shipped back to the U.S. and we find jobs – ideally my vision would be to go back and buy our own house and I would love to be able to work out of my house and be able to support our family until he finds a job – I have big dreams and high expectations for my family – and I have always worked hard to achieve my goals – I’m really excited to become a part of beachbody….I don’t have unrealistic expectations but I know the possibilities are endless 

I watched this video last night and this girl’s story sounds exactly like mine. It just reminded me why I signed up to be a coach and help people- friends, FAMILY, and strangers (who I have come to realize are just friends I haven’t met yet).
If this video touches you like it touched me, then you should stop THINKING about being a coach…and just BE one! You don’t realize how many lives you start to change just by inspiring people to achieve their potential.
