As I have been sharing my Tony Horton experience I have been overwhelmed with the realization that a huge amount of confusion revolves around the word “coach”. Since I am a personal trainer, people automatically assume you must have a certification or a fitness background. That couldn’t be further from the truth and that is what I love so much about this business. I actually didn’t need my fitness background at all…go figure:) I just found an incredible opportunity that revolves around something I am passionate about and ran with it.
So, here’s the low down. In 2007, Beachbody decided to let those that love their products make a commission while sharing and promoting their products instead of plastering them all over store shelves. The reason they use the term “coach” instead of “rep” or “distributor” is because we are also given the opportunity to support and inspire those that buy the products in an effort to help them reach their goals…a benefit that they couldn’t provide if you just grabbed it off the shelf at Walmart. With fitness and weight loss this is a must as I have seen lack of support sabotage the efforts of so many of my clients.
Anyway, so who can be a Beachbody coach? Quite simply anyone can be a coach…ANYONE. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be ripped or a fit machine. We have coaches in all different places on their fitness journey and I love that. All it takes is the desire to help others get in shape while recommending the products that have helped you. Team Beachbody is actually just a home-based business opportunity for those with a passion for fitness and a desire to make a little extra money…that’s it…it’s that simple!
Do I think Team Beachbody is a fit for everyone? Probably not.
Do I think it’s worth looking into? Absolutely!
This is an amazing opportunity that has afforded Chad and I the ability to be more comfortable financially than we have ever been. As shallow as this might sound, the niceties that we are enjoying these days, like granite countertops, new construction on our house, family vacations, and gym equipment all are benefits of this extra income we earn on the side. School loans don’t stress me out anymore and I don’t feel guilty when I buy something nice for myself. Things are finally comfortable. So yes, I definitely think it’s worth looking into…you just never know how it might change your life.
It’s not hard, it’s not complicated and it’s not time consuming. I’m willing to help the willing. You just need to decide if you’re willing.
