Beachbody Coach Sneak Peek: What Does a Coach Do?

Beachbody Coach Sneak Peek | What Does a Coach Do?

If I was an outsider looking into my life, I would be utterly confused! What the heck does she DO all day??
If you are scratching your head … wondering how I can stay home all day (besides when I teach classes) and build a business … you are invited!

The whole concept of being a Beachbody Coach can seem so abstract and even seem SCAM-Y haha.

Pablo knows, I am one of the BIGGEST skeptics. I question everything! I usually never buy anything or go anywhere until I read reviews & do a ton research. I also like to ask a lot of questions – like I’m interviewing people!!

From being BURNED from buying crap or hiring the wrong contractor or going to wrong mechanic … to being RAISED by the ultimate skeptic (my father) … I feel like sometimes I’m almost expecting to be let down at some point – not good, I know!

Feeling like someone made you feel like an idiot … or like as if they pulled wool over your eyes and you couldn’t see it coming … is one of the WORST feelings EVER!

So with that being said, I would like to “Pull the curtain back” and give you a glimpse into what I do … and then you can decide if it’s a good fit for YOU!


  1. We can either chat on the phone, via email, Facebook messenger, video call, pigeon mail (haha) … so many options these days!
    – OR –
  2. You can join my virtual 3-Day Open House I host each month in a private Facebook group. In this group, I share information over the course of 3 days that you can review on your own time 🙂 You can participate and ask questions or just be a fly on the wall.

CLICK HERE to schedule your sneak peek into what coaching is all about. I’ll be in touch within 24-hours.

I DO NOT need a commitment. This is simply a chance for you to evaluate if this is a good fit for you and an opportunity to ask questions!

Here is what I can promise when we connect:

  • This will NOT be one of those schemey “Business Opportunities” where the creepy sales guy pitches a bunch of different things and tries to pressure people to commit. Eww! Totally not my style.
  • I’m simply going to share MY story, reservations I had coming into the biz… how/why I overcame them and how it has changed our lives…
  • I’ll cover common objections and FAQs
  • Share our team CULTURE and values so you know what kind of family we are if you DO decide to take the leap
  • No pressure to sign up. Simply an opportunity to learn more and decide if it might be right for YOU! You won’t hurt my feelings if it’s not for you … or if the timing just isn’t right.


ALL HEART, no pressure – just a way for me share how awesome this opportunity is … our desire as coaches to help and serve others … and a chance for you to learn more and ask questions to see if is a good fit.

Join my free online Open House or we can schedule an online/phone one-on-one. Click HERE to reserve your online seat or schedule your call appointment.

I need to keep the group limited to those who are not coaches so that I can answer their questions as they come up. Thanks for your understanding! xo



Why Personal Trainers Are Becoming Beachbody Coaches

Why Personal Trainers – and Other Fitness Professionals – are Becoming Beachbody Coaches

Over the past year, I have perfected how to balance my two businesses: Beachbody Coaching and my Live Group Fitness Training.

Although both businesses have the purpose of helping others get healthier, they are quite different in approach and discipline, producing different revenue streams. But with that acknowledgment, an open mind and creativity, one business can certainly help fuel the other one and vice versa.

Through Beachbody Coaching, I have learned how to use it to better support my clients and increase my income at the same time. I no longer struggle with addressing nutrition properly as Beachbody has a program for that.  I no longer stress if I need to take time away from the studio and from my in-person clients because I have a workout solution for them during my absence. And I don’t have to depend on a limited geographic area because I’m building a business that that reaches throughout U.S. and Canada and capitalizes on residual income.

There is a growing number of fitness professionals – like personal trainers, groups fitness instructors and nutritionists – jumping on board. The ability to reach more people and touch more lives is an invaluable opportunity that’s truly rewarding. And to be able to increase your income doing something you’re passionate about is absolutely priceless!

Here is how I use Beachbody to better train my clients, reach more people and grow my business:

  • Beachbody has a large variety of workout programs – from beginner workouts to extreme – complete with nutritional programs that I use to complement my training sessions on the days (or seasons) my clients are not training with me. There is a 25% commission on all these programs so it’s a win-win situation. This is also a great way to keep in touch with them if they stop training with you because of budget or needing to change things up.
  • They have extensive, high-quality supplement lines – including Shakeology and the new Performance Line. These are great tools to help your clients reach their fitness goals.  You also receive 25% commission on all these purchases.  Your clients order directly from your site that is already set up for you, so you never have to spend a ton of money to stock inventory.
  • Beachbody also offers a Club Membership that includes On Demand streaming of workouts, a meal planner tool, 10% off member purchases, among other perks.  As coaches we receive 50% commission on quarterly club dues. As an added perk,  I offer a service to help them with planning by helping them pick meals and snacks that they prefer, while staying in the right nutritional values that is all calculated within the club membership site.
  • Tracking Tools. I use Beachbody’s site to track progress by entering in measurements, goals, before and after pictures, which is very motivating for clients. Clients sign up for a FREE membership under you also giving them access to fitness  tips, nutritional tips and more.  All their purchases can be made through there ensuring your receive the commission and they benefit from your support.
    • New Challenge App arriving in early 2016 Beachbody!!! This will be a very intuitive form of accountability, motivational, tracks progress and enters them into daily drawings for prizes.
  • Grow your team with other like-minded people who see your VISION and want to help others.
    Whether it’s a client who has shown leadership skills and wants to stay more on track with their goals … or … someone who is in the fitness industry already … or someone who is looking to change their career and is ready to learn and work hard … building your team is like a building a franchise to reach more people and expand your business beyond your own limits.
  • As you build your team and customer base you become eligible for the Customer Lead Program in which Beachbody starts to send you customers from their infomercials to support them on their fitness journey.  You will then earn commission off their purchases in exchange for your guidance. What an amazing way to reach more people and expand your business beyond your limits.
    • I have built my business to where I am eligible for 1-3 new clients a week.  I receive around 6-12 new clients each month.

All in all, the Beachbody compensation plan offers you 8 ways to earn money including a 25% commission on retail sales and a 50% commission on quarterly club dues that we talked about.

Sign up is FREE with a Challenge Pack Purchase! And if you’re Active Military, Spouse of a Active Military, OR a Veteran, the coach enrollment AND the monthly website fee of $16.95 is waived.

A More Obese Nation | Tips for a Healthier Lifestyle

We all come in different shapes and sizes. And being a size 2 or 4 doesn’t necessarily mean you’re healthy! Being a healthy weight has a lot to do with many factors not just your clothes size or the scale. It comes down to diet, exercise, effort, consistency, etc. To me, I think it’s more important to look at your body composition (fat versus muscle) than the weight on the scale!! Because you’ll see all kinds of different healthy/unhealthy shapes at for example, 150 pounds!

So now that we’ve covered “skinny” doesn’t mean healthy …

Obesity has been a big problem in our country for years. And with all of the strides we’ve made as a country to eat cleaner, organic, vegan, buying from local farmers markets, restaurants adding nutritional information in their menus … I mean even McDonald’s has included healthier options … I just can’t believe this new report!

“American adults who are obese now outnumber those who are merely overweight” — according to the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal report.
Click HERE to read the original article.

I read this article feeling like I could cry. 😢 We’re becoming a more obese nation?! 
What the heck?!

There is a trend of obesity & we need to fight together to END IT. 💪

Doesn’t matter if you’re an online coach like me, a teacher, a corporate manager, a police officer … it ALL starts with YOU. And it starts at home. And we can do it together!!

You can have ALL the tools in the world available to you, but it start
s with the individual being informed and then making a DECISION and COMMITMENT to make a CHANGE.

And of course if you’re a parent, you make a HUGE impact on your kids. Your kids may not care what you SAY, but they do 👀WATCH👀 what YOU DO … including what type of groceries you buy and the types of foods you prepare.

Did you know that being overweight or obese increases the risk of a variety of major health issues, like Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease?! Also … extra weight can make people more vulnerable to certain types of cancer. At then end of the day, it’s not about getting into that bikini!!! It’s about YOUR HEALTH!! The more you weigh, the greater the health risk you have.

Listen. You don’t have to get all crazy on me now and spend TONS of money on fad diets, buying all these crazy “eat this watermelon for 80 days straight and you’ll lose weight” type of diets. (I hope you know I’m being sarcastic here?!)

Trying to change too much all at once can be SUPER overwhelming. And if you feel super overwhelmed, you’ll
either avoid taking action … or you may start but not stick with it.🙅🏻

I got you!

💁🏻Here are a few suggestions. Just choose ONE. After you conquer that one … then add another. When you got those TWO down, add a third. Just keep layering.

1) Lace up your sneakers RIGHT NOW. Do a 15 minute workout. Just something. That’s it! 15 minutes!! It can b
e as simple as going for a walk as a family! Bring your dog too! – haha…. and if you can’t right at this moment … go after work or later. But do it TODAY!
2) Fill your family’s plates with a big serving of leafy greens (spinach, kale, arugula) alongside a lean protein — let’s NOT be another generation of meat, potatoes and gravy!
3) Candy, ice cream & cake does not need to be a reward for a “job well done” in school. Instead, reward your kids with a trip to the movies, or a new toy … or even better an outdoors activity where they family can interact!
4) Pack a lunch
5) Ditch the soda. Right now, get that crap out of your house!!! Sorry to tell ya, but that also includes diet sodas!
6) Go outside and so something. A sport. Run. Bike riding. Just get OUTSIDE! Remember how going outside was THE thing to do before the internet took over the world?!
7) Find an accountability buddy! If you don’t have one … you can definitely find one in our awesome FitGirlsRock Community by clicking here:
8) Let’s view our bodies as our HOMES for the rest of our lives — not just something we are lucky to have. 💜

Remember this isn’t about having a “perfect” fitness body. Nope! If you have been reading my messages … you know I’m all about getting healthy INSIDE and OUT and embracing YOUR unique beauty. And getting healthy, strong and empowering yourself.

I think we can all work together to ENCOURAGE one another that being healthy should be the norm, right?!

And let me tell ya something … we can ALL improve our health in one way or another – doesn’t matter if you’ve been in the game for a while, or you’re just starting out.

So what are you gonna start with? One of the suggestions above? Something different? Comment below and share with us! Would LOVE to hear your first (or second or third) step! ☺️



Fitness Training Kickoff of 2014!
Here is my progress so far…

On January 7th, I started my 6-week training for Spartan Race! I had gained some unwanted pounds during the holidays and I needed a push. Plus, on my list of fitness goals was to really define my abs – which has always been my trouble spot.

Instead of focusing on “losing weight” or “starting a new program” or “dieting” … I decided to relabel my efforts that would keep me super focused and determined. I wanted to TRAIN for something. You know, like an athlete! And conveniently enough I had an upcoming mud race in February. Perfect! That would be my fitness training goal: Spartan Race!

So if you haven’t figured it out by now … I’m not trying to really lose weight. But tone, gain strength and TRAIN LEAN AND MEAN!

To measure my efforts I not only took my before weight and measurements, but I also decided to take weekly photos specifically focusing on my abs. But to make things really interesting, I decided to wear a pair of workout pants that were low-cut and SUPER SUPER tight on me. That way I could really see the difference in my stomach at the end of the 6 weeks. {Believe me this was scary and hard to do, but I knew it was necessary.}

My 6-Week Fitness Training Goals:
1) Teach my group fitness classes as usual, which include a combo of cardio and toning
2) Add in 1 extra personal cardio workout
3) Add in 3 strength training days and 2 intense ab days
4) Carb Cycling Meal Plans + Shakeology daily
5) No alcohol
6) One cheat day to eat/drink whatever
** Turbo Kick/Fire and P90X3 were huge players in my success!!

All in all I am happy with my fitness training outcome. Although I did cave and had a total of 2.5 cheat days instead of my original plan, that’s not too bad considering it was 6 weeks. Six week fitness training. Lost 11 pounds and nearly 9 inches. P90X3 and Turbo Kick. Vanessa Aviles. Beachbody Coach. Shakeology.

My results:

  • lost a total of 11 pounds (which the majority was holiday weight.)
  • lost 8.625 inches all around, with almost 3 of those inches from my waist!

So this has INSPIRED ME to continue using the “training” relabeling as a means to really focus on my goals. It keeps you so much more motivated and on-target. I mean, who wants to “diet” and “hate” working out??!! It should be fun, yet challenging right!!

So moving forward … I will be doing focused fitness training periods. It’s very similar to my monthly challenge groups I host for my customers, but for myself. And I will be sharing my results with you each time.

Since my training period just ended last week, I’m taking a recovery week this week with lighter workouts, but still eating well overall.

Next week my next fitness training period will commence and I’m thinking it’s going to be for 7 weeks. Ouch!! Wish me luck!

I want to share this with you because I hope it inspires you to keep REACHING and PUSHING for your goals, whatever they are, and NEVER GIVING UP!  It often starts with wanting to “look good,” but it ends up being about feeling good and just living a healthy life, which ultimately becomes an example for your family! So know this is NOT where I started … and it’s NOT where I’m stopping!! Each day, week, month, year — is a new opportunity to grow.

If you want to know a little more about me, my background and my transformation — I welcome you to read the 2 following posts so you can see how this entire journey has truly changed my life in so many positive ways!

Any questions, any time! I’ll be happy to help you!


how shakeology helped Kelli with her Crohn's DiseaseShakeology and Crohn’s Disease – how this nutrition dense shake helped Kelli gain control 

The best success stories arrive in the most unexpected ways!

One of my December challengers was struggling with being consistent with her exercise due to a variety of things from some personal matters and a VERY hectic work schedule … on top of it being the holidays. The challenge was an opportunity for her to FOCUS and get back on track. Working out to ChaLEAN Extreme and drinking Shakeology every day, I followed up with her progress within our challenge Facebook group along with private messages. About mid-way through the 30-day challenge she she shared with me that she had Crohn’s Disease and Shakeology was giving her RELIEF and CONTROL like nothing else had before. I was stunned and very excited and asked if I could share her story on my blog.

You know what she told me, “Yes. Absolutely! This was no info the Dr’s could ever provide me so if it can help someone else then I am all for it!”

I’m SO HAPPY for her … and when Kelli emailed me her story, it brought happy tears to my eyes! I’m absolutely thrilled that she’s been able to receive help in way she never imagined!

So here’s Kelli’s story – directly from her!

“I began experiencing stomach irregularities and knew something about me was different then anyone else was around 7th grade. Every doctor I went to tested me for anemia, low blood sugar, thyroid issues, diabetes, and the regular string of blood tests. I was very underweight for my age but ate very normal. Every doctor said it had to be low blood sugar and passed it of as “I would grow out of it.” Around 11th and 12th grade I starting missing more school because I always felt sick, and was finally referred to a Gastroenterologist.

I went through every test known for upper GI, lower GI, and tests for my colon.  No doctor could give me an exact diagnosis, but deferred it as Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS).  Still unsatisfied, I got a second and third opinion.  I had documented my symptoms in a diary by time each and every day and documented what I ate. The third and last Gastroenterologist pulled my Mom aside after reviewing my file and all my tests and recommended I see a psychiatrist, as he felt that my symptoms couldn’t be diagnosed so my symptoms must be something equal to a psychological issue.

At that point I gave up….for five years. My stomach controlled my life. I missed parties, couldn’t eat the same foods as everyone else, experience extreme irregularity, and at the same time, I worked out 6 days a week as a college athlete and ate very healthy.  In many circumstances, this could control IBS symptoms.  Yet, nothing got better.  I struggled through 4 years of multitasking 5am workouts, 18 credit hours, and working 30 hours a week.  Yet, nothing got better.

I moved to Florida from Michigan for graduate school and decided to give it one more shot.  I did a lot of reading on Crohn’s and knew medicine had advanced in the last five years.  The first Gastroenterologist I went to, now knowing that during the appointment I was experiencing a ‘flair up’ was quickly able to diagnose me.  Up until 2 months ago, I took my medicine to control my disease, but just could not gain remission.

I met Vanessa through a Bootcamp class, that up until now, I would not know how impactful this avenue would be.  I recently joined a small group run by Beachbody Coach Vanessa and I started the ChaLean Extreme challenge that included a product drank daily called Shakeology.  After two weeks I noticed immediate results.  I was regular, not getting sick as frequently, and finally starting to control my Crohn’s without it controlling me.  After four weeks, I can’t start my day without it and am finally feeling like there is hope at the end of the tunnel.  With my medicine, ShakeO, and living a healthy lifestyle, I am finally in control.”
