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!!

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…

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…

Vanessa’s 2014 Fitness Training – Part 1

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…

Shakeology and Crohn’s Disease

Shakeology 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…
