My Beachbody Coaching Income

Let’s talk about a taboo topic shall we? MONEY. Why is it so bad to talk about it? Our entire world is revolved around making a living — it’s kind of important right? If you’ve read my story you know that I grew up with quite a bit of it and then when I was kicked out of the nest I had very little of it and struggled. But what about now? I’ve been a Beachbody Coach for 21 months and I rarely share my income — not because I don’t like talking about it but because I don’t want to attract the wrong kind of people to my team. If you think this business is a get-rich-quick scheme then you will fail. This business is about putting other people first and being rewarded for helping them. You work your ASS off and in the beginning of this business you put in WAY MORE hours than you ever get paid for. But if you love it, are patient and consistent it will pay off tenfold.

First of all, you must truly be passionate about Beachbody and their products. I mean, my LIFE has been totally changed by Beachbody. How could I NOT share this with everyone? I spent my life yo-yo dieting and I finally found something that WORKED and wasn’t a drug or a quick fix or complete crap!

MARCH 2015 transformation

If you’ve been following me you know that when I became a coach we were STRUGGLING big time. Like about to run out of money, my mom loaning us money for our rent, minimal income coming in. I didn’t really have the money to sign up to coach but I didn’t care. Something had to give and something in my gut told me I might be able to make something of this crazy opportunity. So I didn’t look back. I went ALL IN.

This was my FIRST paycheck as a coach:

first beachbody paycheck

I sold a T25 Challenge Pack to one of my sorority sisters. I talked to A LOT of people who told me NO. But I didn’t let it stop me. That feeling of helping someone was AMAZING! And she saw great results from the program. That just kept me pushing to help more and more people.

FAST FORWARD ——–> 6 MONTHS

My team was growing. I started really figuring out the business and helping other people learn the business. When I first signed up I had also signed up my husband to help me reach a goal. So we started to build his account too. This was contributing to our family income!

MY PAYCHECK AS A DIAMOND COACH:

diamond beachbody coach income

Retail Commission: $183.92

Team Bonus: $108.00

This means my TEAM is succeeding and making income as well!
When I help my TEAM succeed…Beachbody gives me bonuses!! Cool, right?!

Total WEEKLY Commission at 6 Months: $343.85

MY PAYCHECK ONE YEAR AS A COACH:
1 year paycheck
TEAM BONUSES are growing because my TEAM is succeeding!!
MATCHING BONUS: $93.40
Matching bonuses are VERY cool!! This TINY percentage I receive as a bonus means my team is building teams of their OWN and making additional bonuses themselves.
**Beachbody rewards me for this as well!**

BEN’S PAYCHECK AT 1 YEAR (Diamond Coach):
1 year ben
The team under Ben is starting to grow as well and just like Beachbody rewards me for helping my coaches succeed they also reward him for his coaches succeeding! Notice he has ZERO retail sales!!! That is amazing!

MY SECOND BUSINESS (just opened):
Beachbody allows you to open additional businesses once you reach certain goals! Pretty awesome!
Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.49.50 AM
You can see I very quickly started building up this business — I already was helping coaches on this team reach success and seeing bonuses because of it!
Total WEEKLY Commission between all businesses at 1 Year: $1,383.00

PAYCHECK AT 21 MONTHS IN THE BUSINESS – 8 STAR DIAMOND: 
21 months
My focus has shifted from mainly helping CHALLENGERS to also helping my coaches learn and GROW businesses of their own…just like I have!
My team bonuses have grown, but more importantly, my MATCHING bonuses have grown…which means my coaches are making some amazing team bonuses.

BEN’S PAYCHECK – 2 STAR DIAMOND
21 months ben
ZERO retails sales this week and still — just by pouring into our team — we make an income!

2nd BUSINESS – DIAMOND
21 months 2cbc
My 2nd business has started to take off with the training and mentorship I provide my coaches!! Everyone starts at the same place and it’s up to YOU to build your business and help other people to see success!
TOTAL: $4,350.82 for ONE week!

PINCH ME!! I work from home as my own boss on a business which requires NO prior experience, a very low (and sometimes even FREE) business startup fee AND I actually LOVE IT and know I’m improving the lives of others daily!!

AND MY FAMILY MADE $4,350.82 per week 
after only 21 months?!?!?!?!?!?!

This business has changed my life — I am happier, healthier, FREEEEEEEE and helping SO many people, not just with their health but with their finances as well! I have never been more excited to get out of bed each morning. And I get to spend my day doing what I want with my family! I work when I want to work and travel when I want to travel and I rarely stress about money. That pit in my stomach I used to get when I would approach any cash register is GONE!!!

My team is everything to me!! We are like a family and I want them to see even greater success than I have!!! It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we work together as a TEAM!! I never get tired of them messaging me with how much their lives have changed since becoming a coach. It’s the best feeling in the world!

Shakeology Buckeyes

So, this Shakelogy Buckeye recipe was totally an accident. I made vanilla peanut butter Shakeology cookies and Ben was like, you should use some of that dough to make Buckeyes with your melted Shakeology recipe. That is a smart man! They turned out DELISH!

shakeology buy now

Shakeology Buckeyes

  • 1 cup vanilla Shakeology
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1 scoop/packet chocolate or vegan chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  1. Combine vanilla Shakeo, peanut butter, oats and honey in a bowl and mix — you may need to use your hands.
  2. Roll dough into 1 inch size balls and set aside
  3. Melt your 1 tbsp of coconut oil {microwave for about 30 secs} and mix in your chocolate Shakeology until it’s a consistency of almost a fondue. You may need to add some more coconut oil to get it thin enough.
  4. Dip each ball about halfway into the chocolate and set on wax paper
  5. Refrigerate for 15-20 mins and enjoy!

Pumpkin Seed Pesto

pumpkin seed pesto

I cannot take credit for this pumpkin seed pesto recipe — it was all my husband’s idea. We have a giant tub of raw pumpkin seeds for snacking and he thought why not? If you can use pine nuts why not pumpkin seeds? So to google I went and he whipped this up! It was delicious and we used it in place of spaghetti sauce on. We had spaghetti squash instead of pasta and we used ground turkey as our protein. SO YUMMY!

PUMPKIN SEED PESTO

makes 1 cup

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup green pumpkin seeds
  • 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or more
  • 1/8 tsp salt to taste
  1. Wash and pat dry the sage and parsley. Remove the leaves from their stems. Peel the garlic. Place the sage, parsley, and garlic into the food processor.
  2. Add the pumpkin seeds to the food processor and puree all of the ingredients until the mixture starts to stick together and become crumbly.
  3. With the machine still running, slowly add the olive oil and continue to puree until the mixture resembles a paste. You may want to add more or less olive oil depending on your preference.
  4. Add 1/8 tsp of salt, or more if it suits your liking, and combine.

NOVADog Guest Post: Tracking Walks with Your Dog

I am a big proponent of tracking – I track my workouts and I track my food. I also encourage my clients to do the same because it keeps people in check with the reality of their activity levels and what they are consuming on a daily basis. It’s very easy to overlook these details, like those snacktime spoonfuls of peanut butter! And I am speaking from experience!

With all the technology these days it is really easy to track physical performance, whether it be intensive workouts or just a brisk walk with your dog. The latter is not only important for your health but is essential in providing your furry friends with enough daily exercise – especially those high energy dogs like mine! It is one of the reasons we love taking family walks with our dog, Cap.

Don’t know what to use for tracking fitness? Here are a few of my favorite tools for keeping an eye on Cap’s and my activity:

Happy, Healthy Kids – Part 2

Happy Healthy Kids

 

Welcome to Part 2 in my series! Go check out Part 1 if you missed it! It’s been a few weeks since I last talked to Dina Rose, PhD and we have had some travel that threw us off our routine a bit, but I am pleased to bring you all some great news! Hang tight and we will get there!

In our most recent conversation we talked about control and tasting. Let’s talk about control, because Molly had (yes, had!) all the control here. She was the one dictating what went on her plate and I was appeasing her. So Dr. Rose talked to me about shared control. That is where the tasting comes into play. She gets her plate of food, but she also gets something small to taste. And I mean SMALL.

A lot of parents put an almost full serving of a food on a child’s plate when they want them to just “take a bite” or just “taste it” but to a child that is very overwhelming. They look at all that food and think they have to eat every last bite. I was guilty of doing this as well so Dr. Rose said to make it pea-sized. That way when your child sees that small amount on their plate it is less intimidating to at least try it. She said we want to talk about the food — what does it look like? feel like? is it squishy or hard? what does it smell like? Just really talk about the food that he/she is going to eat. Then after they try it you want to convey success and not disappointment if they don’t like it. Because, remember, it may take a few times of them trying something before they realize they like it.

Molly was also guilty of saying, “I don’t like that.” before she had even ever tasted something. And let’s be real, that is totally a preschooler thing, right?! Well, we want to nip that in the bud, so we talked to Molly about how you can’t NOT like something you have never had and now we practice using other words and trying to keep things neutral instead of negative.

We are continuing to use the rotation rule (switching up foods each meal so they don’t eat the same thing every day) however going on vacation threw us for a little loop because we weren’t with the kids. It is a work in progress! But I am happy to report that Molly is happily eating green beans and broccoli with her meals now. She even will request them! And we are slowly introducing new foods to her — watermelon is a new favorite. She’s getting braver about trying new foods and I hope that as we go through this journey together that grows up with a healthy relationship with food.

For those of you going through food battles with your kids my advice to you is to have patience! This is no walk in the park! But just know that it is totally worth it!

Beachbody Success Club Trip 2015 – Cancun, Mexico

What.a.whirlwind. This month has been absolutely crazy with travel and I LOVE it! Even though we were only in Mexico for 5 days, I spent almost a week gearing up for the trip and then traveling to my inlaws to drop off the kinds. Hence the absence here on the bloggy blog. Laundry, packing, laundry, packing, working, working, laundry, packing. LOL! So, I’m back — albeit tired.

So, what is a Success Club Trip? Every year Beachbody rewards coaches who have been working hard with a trip — next year is a cruise to Jamaica and Haiti! As a coach, you have the opportunity to earn the trip — totally FREE!! So, not only did I earn this trip free, I also earned travel cash for going above and beyond in my business. It feels really good to know that just by helping other people on their health/fitness journey Beachbody rewards me. The business in and of itself is rewarding so these perks are icing on the cake. And yes, YOU can earn a trip too! You just have to be a coach!

Beachbody went ALL out! We stayed at the Moon Palace Resort where everything was all inclusive. I ate my fair share of fried plantains every day! I’m going through withdrawals! I also drank my weigh in Tequila Sunrise drinks — delish! Not only was the food amazing and the rooms — check out our view in the photos below — but they threw us parties!! Doing the Cha Cha Shuffle every single night was a highlight for sure. We had a welcome party, a party on the beach for Elite/Premeire coaches and a farewell party. There were announcements, trainings, workouts, free Shakeology AND plenty of free time to spend bonding with other coaches and their spouses. I can’t even explain how amazing this trip was for me and Ben. We had a blast!

I can’t wait for the cruise next year and to have more of my coaches there with me to experience it all. It truly is an amazing business opportunity. In what other career are you THIS rewarded for doing your job? I feel like I’ve won the lottery. <3

Behind the Weight Loss Transformation

A weight loss transformation photo can only tell you so much. It can show you a person’s physical transformation but it cannot tell you how they arrived at their current state– what they did, how long it took, the tears they cried, the moments of victory, how they now feel and the setbacks they had to get to that moment. A photo is just a glimpse into a current physical triumph. But a weight loss transformation is so much more than that.

I was talking to one of my BFFs recently who is on a postpartum journey and she said, “Do you ever contemplate how hard it is to actually lose weight?” And it got me thinking…

The discipline to overcome your excuses, to do things you DO NOT want to do, to NOT eat/drink things you reaaaallly want to eat/drink. Every single day it is a mental battle with your excuses. And every single day it is up to YOU to decide if you want to give in or if you want to work towards your goals.

Yes, there will be setbacks. Yes, there will be moments of weakness and moments of failure. THOSE moments are a part of your journey — and the journey NEVER ends. You don’t just arrive at your destination. Sometimes you get to your goal and you end up going backwards {guilty!}. But that is OKAY! You pick back up and continue on.

If I can leave you with one thing today it is to not be so hard on yourself when you slip up or when you skip your workout. You’re only human. BUT don’t let that moment overcome you and lose sight of the bigger picture. heart emoticon
