In my last post, Following My Feet, I told you about my decision to become a Beachbody Coach. What I failed to do was tell you what the heck Beachbody is and what a coach does. Oops, my bad! So this post will tell you all about those two things.

What is Beachbody?

In a nutshell, Beachbody is an American corporation that uses multi-level marketing to sell home-fitness DVD’s and nutrition.  I’m sure you’ve heard of people doing “that PX90 thing” or at least have seen infomercials for programs like P90X, Insanity, T25, etc. That’s us!

Beachbody is NOT a pyramid scheme. They use network marketing and there is a big difference!

Usually, there is no actual product to be sold in a pyramid scheme. It’s just people passing around money hoping to get rich. Beachbody was an established company before they even started using network marketing as a strategy to distribute their products. They smartly realized that the best people to sell and distribute their products were the people who used them and found success with them. That way they can genuinely talk to people about it and not just read a script or description about a product to a possible customer.

Here is a video that Will, my friend and fellow Coach, made that will help explain this concept better.

What is a Beachbody Coach?

I don’t need to give you the Webster’s Dictionary definition of a coach. You know what a coach does. There are fitness coaches, health coaches, life coaches, nutrition coaches, etc. You name it, there is probably a coach for it. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, and I’ll get to “why” in a minute. As a Beachbody Coach, I basically help people reach their fitness and health goals. I don’t get paid for this service. It’s free to all my customers and that is a sweet deal! As a personal trainer, I feel as though I’m already a coach. I coach people while we are in a gym and now I can coach people who may live across the country and I love that!!

The most impressive Beachbody philosophy that made me say “yes” to becoming a Coach and start a job in network marketing is that they have a 3 prong-approach to achieving weight-loss success.

1) Fitness (Home-exercises programs)

2) Nutrition (Shakeology and a variety of other supplements) **Click on Shakeology for a cute and short video about it

3) Support (Coaches, Groups, Challenge Groups, etc.)

I believe you need all 3 to really be successful, especially support. People will achieve so much more with their peers cheering for them! I know I do.

It comes down to the fact that I am passionate about helping people get healthy. If the only way a person is going to exercise it at home for 25 minutes, than I am going to help them be successful. Period. I love the fact that, through Beachbody, I now have an opportunity to reach so many more people!
