WHAT IS BEACHBODY COACHING?

BIZOPPCALLINVITE_92214b

I'm hosting a LIVE CHAT on Monday night (September 22nd)! I'll be sharing about my own journey as a coach, about what coaching is, about how I make it work in my life, explaining what you do daily as a coach and how that creates an income that you can grow to match your goals, and about the amazing culture on our team! You'll also get to hear from coaches on our team about their experience as well! We'll talk about how to make a business out of it without being one of "those people" (you know what I mean! HAHA!) and we'll have an open Q&A time at the end where you can ask me questions!

It is my joy to get to wake up each day and challenge and inspire people to live their best lives. Paying forward all the amazing experiences I've personally had taking control of my health to others who are ready to do the same! And it's just a ridiculous bonus that Beachbody pays me to do it.

Join us this Monday night at 8PM EST! It's zero obligation, all you have to do is RSVP so I know who to expect! Just click on the image above to email me your RSVP! I'll be sending out the link to the live video chat to everyone who RSVPs! I'd be honored to have you there hanging out with us!

** Outside of the coaches on TEAMBTFP, this chat time is going to be limited to people who are non-coaches only. Thanks for understanding!

FINDING MY GIRLTRIBE

I've never been the type of girl who had lots of girlfriends. Not for any real reason. I've always had one or two really close girlfriends at any given time in my life. I've just never really felt like the type of girl that can be thrown into the mix with a big group of girls and feel at home.

The closest I ever had was in high school sports. Being part of a team, spending years with the same girls, blood, sweat, and tears as we worked hard together to become a TEAM and to work toward the same goals. I loved it. And I think that was the only (and last) time I had that girltribe vibe in my life.

In college I wasn't in a sorority or any sports. Afterward I've always been self employed. So girl tribes have been missing from my life for years. For so long, in fact, that I didn't even realized I needed on or missed it! I thought I was just one of those people who has a few close friends but never a group of girls. I would get sad over it when movies like Sex and the City would come out. Why didn't I have that group too? And then... I found them!

I wasn't expecting to get an entire GIRLTRIBE when I signed up as a Beachbody coach. I wasn't expecting to feel such a deep sense of pride and community and team spirit and acceptance and support when I joined as a coach. I wasn't expecting to find what I didn't even realize I was missing. But I did!

These women inspire me and encourage me and answer my silly questions and ponder over deeper ones with me. They lead lives of example and give so much of themselves to help others succeed. They make me proud to be a coach and to be part of this amazing community.

And then I found my core group! It happened kind of on accident. We didn't really expect to get as close as we have. These ladies in the photos below are my success partners. What does that mean? It means that we are a little tribe within a tribe. We all started growing our businesses at about the same time and we met in training groups! Since then we've bonded over ups and downs both in our businesses and our lives. We've shared ideas and brainstormed solutions. We've held each other up when we needed support. We've celebrated victories and shared sadness. They are my core GIRLTRIBE and I am a better person for knowing them! These 4 women inspire me every day and I am so happy to have them in my life! I could gush over them forever but for now I'll just leave you with some photos and say that I get to hang out with ALL OF THEM in November and I'm literally counting the days till we are reunited. We are all spread out between the US and Canada so we only get to see eachother a few times a year. I cannot wait to be reunited with my GIRLTRIBE!

We have a really tight knit family vibe and I think you'll find the community you might not even realize you've been looking for! Coaching can change your life in ways you didn't even expect, be open to it and amazing things will happen!

What is P90

WHATISP90HEADER_TEAMBTFP whatisp90_tonyhorton_teambtfp

FAST FIVE ABOUT P90

WHO: Who is P90 for? EVERYONE! This program is literally made for everyone! It is intended to be a foundational program for people who want results but aren't ready (or willing) to jump into a more intense program like P90X or Insanity. Simple cardio, simple strength training, an easy-to-follow nutrition plan, and short workouts.

WHAT: TP90 is a 90 Day Fitness Program created by Tony Horton (creator of P90X, P90X2, and P90X3!) It includes 10 workouts all between 20-40 minutes long. We all have to start somewhere and this program is perfect for creating a solid foundation to introduce fitness into your life as well as conquering your fear of getting started, of cardio and of strength training.

WHEN: It is supposed to launch online on Tuesday, September 23rd. And you'll only be able to get it through a Beachbody coach. Like me! Click here to make me your coach so you can get your hands on this program when it comes out!

WHERE: P90X is a program you can do it at home saving you time and money and allowing you sooooo much more freedom with your schedule! You only need a little bit of space. Fire your gym! Home workout programs ftw! ;)

WHY: Tony Horton saw the need for a program that taught the foundational skills for people who are new to fitness, who might have a lot of weight to lose, or who just want a great workout program that isn't as crazy intense as P90X! 


WHATISP90_TEAMBTFP

Here's a quick sneak at the 10 amazing workouts that will be included in this program. As you can see, your whole body will get worked! And with 10 workouts, your won't get bored. The results are starting to come out from the test group subjects and they are so incredible! Mostly because they show REAL people instead of body builders or bikini models. I love it!

Here are the REAL RESULTS of one of my past challengers and myself on the 21 Day Fix...

p90transformationbeforeafter_teambtfp

FIRST OF ALL...
I want to say how proud I am of the women who are in these photos! I know it's scary showing your before photos to the world and they are some serious heroes for allowing themselves to be vulnerable. But bigger than that... I am so proud to be part of a company that doesn't just promise quick fixed with crazy photoshopped before and after photos. I am so honored that these are the photos coming out for P90 because they show REAL WOMEN with bodies that look like real bodies! Here is a quote from Valene, the woman in the image on the left side. A mother of 2 who took charge of her health. I am so proud of her and so honored to be a fit mama just like her!

"Ok, so here it goes. It is taking A LOT of courage and swallowing of pride to post these pictures - I'm so embarrassed, but I keep telling myself that it's not who I am anymore! I hope that it inspires someone, anyone...even if it's just ONE person - to take the leap. Then it will be worth it to me. I am a Mom of 2 awesome, and beautiful kiddos. I work full time. On the left, I was full of WHATEVER excuses I could think of. On the RIGHT is the result of me pushing all those excuses out of my head, and taking charge of my own health. I've lost weight before...up/down and back UP again. But NEVER again. With #P90 I have achieved results that I thought were unattainable for me! In 90 days, about 30-45 minutes of exercise a day along with a clean and healthy diet, I lost 25 pounds and 21.5 inches!! If I can do it...you can do it! Take that chance on yourself and make it happen!! iIt's your turn!" -Valene

SO HOW DO I GET IT? WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
I know that starting can be the hardest part! And I don't want this to be just another fitness program that you buy and that sits on your shelf collecting dust. I want to make sure you stick with it and succeed at your goals! My job as a coach is to be your support system! So I have an online fitness challenge group where we will all start together, meal plan, keep each other accountable, and celebrate success together! Click on the photo below to email me or fill out the application below to get more info on P90 once it launches!!!

Practicing the Art of Gratitude


Do you ever find yourself getting panicked by your life? Your bills. Your inbox. The people waiting on responses from you? The laundry? The fact that you can't find your favorite sports bra? (No? Is that just me then? Seriously I've looked everywhere!) 

I find that anxiety starts to creep up on my when I'm not being very thankful. I love seeing all the gratitude challenges on Facebook and Instagram. They help me to remember that my problems aren't very big problems. 

I think my life is hard? My life where I can pretty much come and go as I want. Where I can comfortably pay my bills and have extra for fun stuff? The life where I am healthy and have insurance and can buy medicine for myself and my family if we need it? The life where I can walk into multiple rooms of my house and turn on clean, safe water? Geez, I'm so spoiled sometimes. I think this life is hard? No. 

Living in poverty is hard. Living in oppression is hard. Living paycheck to paycheck with a family to support is hard. Living under persecution is hard. My life is not hard. So when I start to get myself all worked up over how hard my life is I take a break and start to list out all the things I'm grateful for. Try it! Get a little notebook or start a note on your phone and just start listing. You'd be surprised how much it can change your perspective! I know it sounds simple but it's such a good practice to get into. Let me know how it works for you!

You can connect with me and our fit life tribe on our Better Together Fitness Project Community on FB!
