Busy Mom to Business Mom


When I first signed up to be a coach with Beachbody it was because I already loved the products and programs and I was just looking for a way to save some money.

Along the way, people would ask me almost daily what I was doing, and how they could get started. I started sharing a little about my journey. I put some groups together where we could talk about our workouts, healthy recipes and just support each other every day and help each other stay on track.

A few months and 24 pounds later, I realized I could turn this in to a real SIDE HUSTLE and maybe contribute some additional money to my family and the ever-growing grocery bill! (family of 6 eats a lot!)

But it turned in to more than grocery money. I was able to set aside money for family vacations. We replaced our aging vehicles. I even started my own little college savings account a few years ago! As I was doing my taxes this year I noticed that ‘little’ account is up to about $15,000! That makes me feel immensely proud of myself!

4 and a half years later that SIDE HUSTLE has replaced my full time income, though I only “work” 2-3 hours/day doing something I LOVE to do! Essentially I get paid to get fit, and help other people do the same!

I’m not a fitness expert or nutritionist. I’m just a busy mom who took a little leap of faith and became a work at home Business Mom. I love what I do! I love the people I’ve met. Paying it forward to other busy moms is a gift! I often say I would do it for free but they insist on paying me!

Do you have a side hustle? Whether you’re a stay at home mom like me, or work part time or full time…you can make this work! And I teach you how! Want to see if this would be a good fit for you?

“What is Coaching?” Sneak Peek

Interview with 3 different coaches TOMORROW (3/22/17)

You’ll hear from a “discount coach”, a “hobby coach” and a “side-hustling business mom coach” (me!) :).

*You can watch the 10-20 minute interviews throughout the day and ask any questions you might have. No pressure. No obligations! My only regret is not starting sooner!

*If you’re not a coach or working with a different coach, contact me and I’ll add you to the group!

Making legal happy: Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Each Coach’s income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill.

Husband’s View of Coaching

“Angie, you were doing it anyway!”

My husband is so stinking smart, for many reasons, but recently he pointed something out that made lightbulbs turn on over my head!

Last week he agreed to sit down with me for a live interview, sharing his thoughts about this whole coaching gig, from his point of view. How it’s affected me, our family, our income, our physical and mental well-being, our future goals, etc. We both know that spouses can be one of the main reasons people either jump in to something like this, or don’t.

Now this is a guy who won’t sugar coat anything! He’s the most honest person I’ve ever known in my life – incapable of speaking anything but the truth and exactly what’s on his mind! He even warned me that he might say something that wasn’t necessarily what I’d want to hear…but I took my chances.

He pointed out that it was a big adjustment at the beginning. I was spending time on my laptop and phone learning how to build a successful at home business. I was changing the way we ate as a family, and of course I was making sure I got my workout in every day – no matter what.

As a result, I was developing a new-found self esteem and confidence in myself. I was sharing my story on Facebook. And these things were new and different! He has always been very supportive of me, but he does not like ‘different’.

I started dating my husband when I was 15 years old! GASP! And he knows me better than anyone! To see such rapid changes happening was no doubt a little disconcerting. But he hung in there. We adapted. And we continue to make adjustments to be sure that we are doing what’s right for ourselves and for our family.

But he pointed out a couple of things that really stuck out to me.

He said, “When I considered the alternative – you going back to work, away from home 8-10 hours a day, buying a new work wardrobe, correcting homework all night, commuting to and from work, paying for before and after-school care, missing ball games and kids’ activities, etc…Beachbody coaching was the clear winner!”

And in a recent follow up discussion with him he said, “Well…you were doing it anyway – using the programs, working out, trying to eat healthy – you might as well get paid to do it! The extra money you were making was just a bonus!”

See how smart he is?! 🙂 And he’s right. I WAS doing those things anyway, but without all of the support, accountability and money in my bank account!


Want to learn more?

Have questions? I did too! My only regret is that I didn’t start sooner. So you owe it to yourself to get the info you need to decide if coaching might be a good fit for you too!

Let’s chat!


Get Fit – Win Money – Health Bet is coming!


This is a bet you’re going to want to take! Quite possibly the easiest way to earn money I’ve ever heard of…seriously! There will be anywhere from $1 million to $3 million in the pot (it’s growing every day!) and you will split that with everyone else who does 3 simple things:

  1. Workout a minimum of 3 times/week. (easy!)
  2. Drink Shakeology (and take pictures for proof) 5 times/week. (delicious!)
  3. Log your activity in the Challenge Tracker app from Sept 5 – Oct 2.


If you’re already working out and drinking Shakeology…this is a NO-brainer! All you need to do is sign up for my next challenge, starting September 5, do the 3 things listed above, and you’ll be sharing a piece of the pie! How much money you win just depends on the total prize pot and the number of participants! But you are guaranteed to walk away with some extra cash just for living a healthy lifestyle. No embarrassing weigh-ins required. Just sweat and sip your way through September and you’re a winner! (In more ways than one!)

Deadline to get signed up is Monday, August 29!

*Extended through Sunday 9/4!

Don’t have a workout you love? (I can help with that!)
Not drinking Shakeology? (I can help with that, too!) *Try it for 30 days and if you don’t love it, return an empty bag. Seriously.

There are a TON of GREAT sales this month! If you try Shakeology you get a workout program for just $10 more! All of the TOP programs are on sale! Check it out!

I don’t know about you, but with all of the travelling and vacations, eating out, bbq’s, etc….I kinda lost focus a bit. My workouts slipped and nutrition too. It wasn’t a total loss, but I’ve got some work to do to get back on track! This is the perfect time to do just that!

Summer is winding down, and we’re about to get hit with busy schedules, kids’ activities, demands of our time, fall treats and goodies, etc… We can’t be the best version of ourselves to take all of that responsibility on without taking care of ourselves first! Take this bet and set yourself up for a fall that you can take head on – with your head up – feeling good about yourself, with more energy to do all of the things! I will be there to help you every step of the way! And together we will get fit and win some cash to boot!


Fill out the form below and let’s get started!

To be OK with the body you have…


This is unbelievably HARD for me to post, but it’s like peeling off a band-aid before summer, and swimsuit season. I know everyone has their ‘thing’, and this is mine.

This is the thing that makes me cringe, and avoid the mirror. I’ve been working really hard to get past feeling insecure and self-conscious, and this is part of that process for me!

*I cannot believe I’m posting this on the world wide internets!


3 years ago I wouldn’t have DREAMED of wearing a bikini to the pool or the beach…NO WAY! Not with this “thing” on my belly. (Kids refer to it as a “butt” and giggle. I pretend it doesn’t bother me, but it does.)

I’ve spent the last 2 1/2 years working on ME. Getting fit, and making my health a priority has not only changed my body physically, but for the first time I’ve started feeling more comfortable in my own skin! My confidence and self esteem have improved drastically! So, even though it’s NOT easy…I WILL wear my bikini this summer – not to ‘flaunt’ anything, but to practice being OK with my whole self!

This scar is my badge of honor, for bringing 4 wonderful people into this world. It’s just part of who I am now. I continue working hard EVERY day to be OK with the body I have: every wrinkle, stretch mark, scar and freckle.

For me, that means controlling what I CAN: working out every day, and fueling my body with the kinds of foods that make me feel better, stronger and have enough energy to do everything I need to do, every day, with a smile on my face!

Will I ever have a 6-pack? Nope. But that’s not my goal. I’m just trying be as healthy as I can, so that I can wear that bikini with my head held high!

Let’s get to work, and get comfortable in our own skin!

I’ve got a support group starting on April 6th. We’ll workout, eat healthy foods and keep each other accountable! I’ll provide you with the all of tools you’ll need to be really successful! How about access to $1500 worth of proven fitness programs, and complete meal plans, for as little as $0! (zero) FREE?! (yep!) I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on these programs, but you don’t have to!

READY?! Click this button to get started: sign_up14


Here are ALL of the options!

Beachbody On Demand is a new way to stream workouts to any smart device/laptop/etc…you get access to apx 11 full workout programs, plus meal plans and lots of other great content (about a $1500 value).



You can pick any option

A – On Demand Challenge Pack (Shakeology + first 3 month access to Beachbody On Demand for free)

B – Shakeology Sampler Pack plus 3 months of BOD

C – 30 day trial of BOD for FREE!

And then there are a few other sales that I included at the bottom of the graphic for anyone interested in the 3 Day Refresh, T25 or TurboFire Challenge Packs (with Shakeology)

And finally…since The 21 Day Fix continues to be a HUGE hit in my groups, with challengers losing up to 10-15 pounds in 21 days…I wanted to be sure to mention that one too!

Here are some results from my last 21 Day Fix group:

  • Michelle lost 6 pounds and 10.5 inches!
  • Hope lost 5 pounds and 4 inches!
  • Carla lost 6 pounds and 3 inches!
  • Jennifer lost 5 pounds and 2 inches!

And this month, you can get FREE access for 3 months when you buy Shakeology!

As a coach, I’ve been able to sample On Demand for the past month and I LOVE it! It’s been so great to be able to access a workout with the touch of a button on my smart phone, tablet or computer (you can also stream to your smart t.v.!). My laptop didn’t even come with a DVD player! And I just heard last night that any program you have already purchased through Beachbody, will be automatically available to you in your “previous purchased programs” area of On Demand! How cool is that!? *That feature will be up by the end of March.

You’ll get instant access to hundreds of workouts, including top-selling programs like P90X and Insanity! Try one, and if you don’t like it, try another one!


Get the Beachbody Club Challenge Pack this month and save BIG! How does $1,500 dollars worth of programming sound? I own almost every one of these videos, on DVD (remember those old things?) and spent hundreds of dollars, and now they’re yours. FREE.

21 Day Fix Extreme is HERE!




The 21 Day Fix was an absolute game-changer! I’ve seen amazing results over and over again! People losing 10-15 pounds in just 21 days. AND nobody is starving, OR killing themselves at the gym for 1-2 hours a day!

Well NOW you can kick it up a notch and get seriously shredded in the shortest time possible with 21 Day Fix EXTREME, created by Autumn Calabrese. This breakthrough 21-day fitness and nutrition program combines simple portion control, clean eating, and extreme 30-minute workouts to deliver a body that is hard, lean, and defined.

What is 21 Day Fix EXTREME?
• A 21-day program that features simple portion control, clean eating, and extreme
30-minute workouts.
• The portion-control containers take all the guesswork out of how much you should eat.
• The Eating Plan will tell you exactly what to eat and when—and how to eat cleaner than ever.
• This is how you get seriously shredded in 21 days.

What makes this program different?
• No other program has you eating this well and working this hard. It’s going to take guts, intensity,
and drive. But it’s only 21 days.
• The 30-minute workouts are extreme. They combine steady-state aerobics, resistance training, and
explosive power moves that target every muscle in the body—to help you get shredded in a short
amount of time.
• Seven workouts; one for every day of the week so your mind never gets bored and your body
never adapts.
• For your nutrition, you’ll not only be practicing portion control—you’ll be eating ONLY clean foods.
No treats. No cheats. No excuses.
• Autumn has included her own competition nutrition plan, which she uses to get stage-ready and
ripped in 21 days.

Who should do the 21 Day Fix EXTREME?
Women and men who:
• Are impatient to get serious results.
• Don’t want to make longtime commitments or have tried and failed at longer, more complicated
diet plans.
• Are serious with a “No BS” attitude toward workouts and nutrition.
• Have a dramatic short-term weight-loss deadline, or need a final push to achieve the hardbody
they’ve always wanted.
• Don’t have much weight to lose, but want to get shredded and have defined abs.

New Insanity MAX 30

The NEW Insanity Max 30 which is scheduled to be available in a couple days… sometime on Tuesday December 2 HERE or through your coach’s site if I’m not your Coach.
These workouts are 30 minutes of pure intensity.
BUT, if you’re not up to the intensity, there will be a modifier and you can select to ONLY watch the modifier the whole time.
The whole idea of this fitness program is for you to find, and continuously challenge, your max endurance at your max intensity… burning loads of calories and fat in the process. The before and after transformations have been jaw-dropping!

What does it mean to MAX OUT? Well, on day one, you might make it through just three minutes before you need your first break. That means you MAXED out but it doesn’t mean you stop all together. It means you take your first break and get back to it. The next day you push yourself to make it longer until you need your first break… and so on. You’re always pushing past your fitness plateaus. You don’t coast through 30 minutes just so you can say you did it. You find your MAX each time – and that’s where you make significant changes to sculpt your body and hit a new level of fit! OF COURSE nutrition plays a role too and that’s why it comes with the “Nutrition to the Max” guide and the Deluxe Kit comes with 3 extra workouts and the 21-Day Fix containers. 

Scheduled to be available *sometime* Tuesday Dec 2.

If you are not a Coach, you don’t have a Coach, and you would like for me to be your Coach, please send an email to CoachRelations@TeamBeachbody.com to request that I be your coach. My Coach ID is 186682. My customers will get an invite to my next challenge group but space will be limited, so stay tuned!
I hope there’s no sell-out of this program, but everyone should act fast just in case!
Base Kit Insanity Max 30 Includes:
  • 12 Workouts on 10 DVDs
  • 150 NEW moves
  • “Nutrition to the Max” Guide
  • “No Time to Cook” Guide
  • 60-Day “Max Out” Wall Calendar so you know which workouts to do each day
  • Max Out Guide
  • Bonus Workout “Sweat Fest” if you order from a Coach

From Tony:

“Here’s something you thought I’d never say . . .

Hardcore workouts aren’t for everybody. I mean, what if you just want to lose 20 pounds? Or get back some of the muscle tone you had in college. Maybe you just want to get out of bed in the morning without a backache. For that all you need is something straightforward. Fundamental. Doable.

That’s why I created the NEW P90 workout.

Whether you used to be in shape and feel fitness has now passed you by, or you’ve never worked out a day in your life, my P90 workout is your easy-to-follow way to lose substantial weight, have the energy to run and play with your kids, and feel better in everything you do—without the agony of high-intensity exercise.

P90 is the result of everything I’ve learned in 20 years.

Here’s the key . . . In as little as 25 minutes a day, P90 will help you completely change your body—not by working you harder—but by keeping it simple. Simple cardio. Simple resistance training. A simple approach to portion control. I won’t say these new workouts are easy . . . but they’re a whole lot easier to get done now. And that’s how P90 will help you finally get the body you want.”

—Tony HortonCreator of P90X®, P90X2®, and P90X3®
now brings you the NEW P90® workout.

Want to be part of my first TEST GROUP!?

The earlier you save your spot, the better! I believe this group will fill up fast! Fill out the application below!

Coming June 2014!

Since it’s looking more and more like I’ll be training for and running the Chicago Marathon this fall, this program will be JUST the thing to go along with all of that pavement pounding! I’m not getting any younger, and I am the LEAST flexible person I know! Seriously…it’s ridiculous! I stink at yoga – though I keep trying! Pilates isn’t my strong suit either! I want so badly to be more flexible, but I just haven’t figured out how….yet! I can’t WAIT for this program to be released in June.

Last week, I had the privilege of listening to Chalene talk all about her new program, so I made this video to share that call with you. Listen to her describe her motivation for developing this program and how it’s totally changed the way she trains, and the way she looks!

And click this link to make sure you get UPDATES and FIRST access to PiYO as soon as it’s available!
