I see a very different life now…

Every once in awhile I stop and look around and can’t believe what I see!

I see coaches on my team from across the country having success doing something they are so passionate about! People that have become my great friends and business partners.

I see my kids every morning and every evening, because I work from home and don’t need to drop them at day care in the morning or pick them up from after care at the end of the day.

I see their college savings accounts growing.

I see my laundry, which has not only changed by 2-3 sizes in the last 4 years, but no longer consists of stuffy, uncomfortable work clothes. My work attire is this! Leggings, hoodie and comfy gym shoes.

I see my friends, at Panera, Starbucks or wherever, whenever I want to. Sometimes we talk about growing our business. Other times we just sit and enjoy the scenery.

I see my challengers getting amazing results! Dropping pounds and inches and changing their lives, and their families’ lives too!

I see my friends and family members getting fitter and healthier than ever!

I see my passport and travel arrangements on the kitchen table as my husband and I prepare to leave in 2 weeks for an all expense paid trip to Punta Cana!

Is this really my life?

Coaching has changed my life for the better in every possible way! I never saw myself doing this, but now I can’t see anything else!

What started as something I was doing ‘just for the discount’ on Shakeology has turned into a life I didn’t see coming – not in a million years! I’ve met the most amazing people. I’ve reached goals and done things I only dreamed about. I’m just a busy, over-scheduled mom who was looking for something, and didn’t even realize what it was at the time. It’s safe to say I found exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for! 😉 I have this business, this life, and all of the perks that come with it and now I can envision a future for my family and me that would never have been possible without this amazing opportunity!

And because I mentioned the life-changing income potential of this business…

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!

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!

Story Time!

STORY TIME!!!story_time

I have a story to tell, and I just need to get it out!

Once upon a time, about 2 and a half years ago, there was this mom who was desperate for a change.


I was slowly gaining weight and losing every last shred of self-confidence I had – which wasn’t much to begin with. I was seriously considering just giving up and resigning myself to what I thought was inevitable: stretchy waistbands and spending the rest of my life on the couch trying to convince myself that it didn’t matter. Who cares!?

I cared.

I decided to do something about it – one last BIG effort to see what could happen if I really gave it my all! I knew about Beachbody and Shakeology through my good friend Jenelle Summers (who had also introduced this whole coaching business to me – which I did not understand at the time). I wanted to try Shakeology and some new fitness programs, but I was reluctant to spend that kind of money and I was VERY skeptical of Shakeology, but intrigued enough to try it and see – expecting to chalk it up as a big, dumb mistake!

Then, I did something really CRAZY! Despite warnings from my friends and family that it was a big scam and a pyramid scheme (SCARY!), I signed up as a coach simply so I could save 25% on my big dumb mistake!

What happened next blew my mind! In my first 3-6 months, I lost 24 pounds, about 20 inches and felt better than I had ever felt in my life!


And something else. I was running these support groups for my friends and family members to keep pyramid_schememyself on track, and they were losing weight and getting fit and healthy, too! I was HOOKED! I had found my passion! And I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up! A Beachbody Coach! *Oh, and nothing bad happened. It wasn’t a scam or a big scary scheme after all!

I have hosted at least one support group every month since I started and the transformations I’ve witnessed are UN-f’n-believable!! It’s the most amazing feeling to be part of that! I have a basic need to help people, and coaching fulfills that need for me! This is why I get up in the morning, excited to get to work!

I wholeheartedly believe in these products and programs because I’ve seen first hand how they’ve changed people’s lives – including mine!

I’m just a regular ol’ mom of four amazing kids, wife of my high school sweetheart, and former first grade teacher who took a giant leap of faith and boy did it pay off – BIG time! I work part time hours, at home, with my kids, when I want, where I want and how I want. Just 2 years after starting, I now make as much moo-la as I did working full time as a teacher, spending my days with other people’s kids. I am proof that anyone can do this!

And what’s SUPER awesome is that I have this whole amazing team of coaches, with the same passion and drive, and we are having 10 tons of fun growing our businesses together! Some of them I’ve never even met in person! But I will SOON and I absolutely canNOT wait!


*If you’ve ever thought about doing something like this, don’t be like me and wait 5 more years to find out how incredible this opportunity is! Message me, let’s chat. You can ask me anything! And if you decide this is something you’d like to try. I’ll be with you every step of the way!

THE END (or just the beginning! It’s up to you!)

Life Changing!

I just felt like I needed to share this today. I really don’t share this to brag, but to show you what is possible when you take a leap of faith and do something that has the power to change your life!

This business changed my life. <PERIOD!> In more ways than I ever imagined possible!

*Keep reading for an invitation to a short presentation about what coaching is all about, and if it would be a good fit for you, too!


Would it be life changing for you to earn about $2000 in one month?! I know it’s a pretty big deal for me and my family! I am by NO means a TOP earner in this company, but being able to contribute to my family at this level, from home, doing something I’m SO passionate about; meeting new people, sharing my journey, getting in the best shape of my life, etc…well it’s more than I can comprehend some days!

I was having lunch with my husband yesterday – something I can do since I work from home – and we were reflecting back on the last 2 and a half years. We were both struck with how positively this business has affected our lives! We were discussing the money that we’ve been able to save, the vacations we’ve been able to take, and our FUTURE! This extra income is making a lot of things possible that we never imagined! I am SO grateful, I can’t even find the words.

I LOVE what I do. I know there are a lot of doubters about this kind of business…I know, because I was one (and so was my husband)! But we have been able to see first-hand that this business changes lives! This isn’t a scam or a pyramid scheme (ps – a traditional corporate structure is WAY more of a pyramid scheme than this!). In this type of business structure, you have the opportunity to be at the top of your own pyramid, and even out earn the people above you! Where else is that possible?


I am just a 43 year old mom of 4 who had a crazy idea one day to sign up as a coach. And it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. <PERIOD>!

  • I have lost 24 pounds. (and kept it off!)
  • Friends and family members have had amazing transformations too!
  • My family is more focused on health & nutrition.
  • I’ve met SO MANY amazing people!
  • I have replaced my full-time teaching salary doing something I love!
  • I work from home.
  • I set my own hours.
  • I am my OWN boss!
  • I get to help people every day!
  • I love my job! (How many people can say that!?)

If you would like to learn more about what coaching is all about, and if it’s a good fit for you, sign up below for my 30 minute webinar. No commitments, no pressure, just information and an opportunity for you to have all of your questions answered!

FIT & LEAN in 2015

Are you READY to get FIT & LEAN in 2015?!

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE!before_marathon

And it’s SO much more WONDERFULLER when you feel good!

2 years and 24 pounds ago, I did not feel so wonderful. I was at a time in my life when I figured I had tried everything, done it all, and just wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I was THIS close to giving up – throwing in the towel.

I am a busy mom of 4, and really…who cares right? WRONG!!! I cared! Of course I did! I was just trying to convince myself that I didn’t, because facing the reality that nothing I was doing was working was hard to swallow.

One more try, I told myself. Give it all you’ve got! Commit 100% and see what happens…

Fast forward 2 years I lost 24 pounds, just by eating healthy foods and working out at HOME – doing programs I LOVE! I feel better than ever, have more energy, more confidence and just a better outlook on life in general! I ran a marathon for crying out loud!!!

And now I get to pay it forward and help others find what works for them! Are you ready to find out? Give it your all? Make 2015 the best year ever! Where do you want to be NEXT December?

START with me on January 5th – set some BIG goals for the NEW year and REACH them!

You can do it and I can help!

Don’t Be Like ME!

Apr_help_wantedIt took me 4 years to jump into coaching…WHY WHY WHY did I wait so long?! If I only I could have told myself THEN, what I know now…it would go something like this:


Dear Old Me,
You should not wait another minute! You know that thing you’ve been considering, that looks too good to be true. It’s not. You will be SO passionate about being a coach, that you would do it for FREE…but you’ll make money anyway! Actually, you’ll make enough money in just a year and a half, to help your family take 2 vacations and open up some additional college savings accounts!
What could you do with an extra $1,400/month!?
Also, you know that Facebook profile picture that you’ve had up since Facebook was invented, because you HATE having your picture taken and you don’t have any others to choose from? Well, you’ll have SO much more self-confidence that you’ll not only allow pictures of yourself taken, you won’t delete them from the camera anymore, and you’ll FINALLY change that profile picture….SEVERAL times! (Also, you’ll have an entire Facebook page where you post pictures of yourself almost daily!…sometimes in just a pair of shorts and a bra top!!!)
– Somebody get the smelling salts…’Old Me’ just passed out!! –
Get this…you know those pounds that you keep packing on and can’t seem to figure out WHY? Even though you’ve run 5 marathons, you’re still not seeing the results you want to see. There are programs that will work better than anything you’ve ever tried. AND you can do them at home, and ask your friends and family members to do them with you! Your friends will workout with you, and your family members will all get RIDICULOUSLY fit! Your husband will lose like 40 pounds, because he sees you getting fit and healthy and he wants to join you! 
Remember how you were nervous you wouldn’t know what to do, or how to do it? PSH! You’ll meet such a cool bunch of people that will help you and encourage you along the way! You’ll meet new friends and have a BLAST!
Oh and by the way…you know that friend who warned you that it was a pyramid scheme…it’s NOT!!! P.S….ALL corporations are structured like pyramids!
The only difference here, is that YOU get the opportunity to be a the top of your own pyramid! And you’ll get there by HELPING others succeed! *A little different than a traditional corporation!
Don’t wait 4 more years to jump on this opportunity! Do it today and you’ll be amazed at the many positive changes that will come from it! You’ll lose 24 pounds, gain killer confidence and help hundreds of people get fit and confident, too! It’s the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do!
What are you waiting for? There’s NO risk…if you don’t love it, you can quit, any time!! (But you WILL love it! I KNOW!!!)
The NEW Me!

I’m excited to announce another 30 Day NEW Coach Training group!

One of the reasons people hesitate to sign up is that they fear they won’t know what to do, or how to do it (I had that fear)! That’s why I run these groups for new coaches! I am going to walk you through EVERYTHING you need to go to get you up and running; building and growing your own successful coaching business!

*Sorry, not available to coaches, or anyone already working with a coach.

My next group will start on Monday, May 12.  Deadline to get signed up is Sunday, May 4. 

With consistent work, growing and building your business, you can expect your income to double every 6-12 months.

I sat on the fence for 4 years! My only regret about coaching is that I didn’t start sooner! Don’t make my mistake. If you’ve been on the fence…get OFF! If you’re ready, or just want more information, fill in the form below and we’ll talk about how you can get started, too. 🙂

P90X3 is HERE!


It’s finally here! P90X3 is on-sale, and I’m pretty excited about it! I wasn’t sure initially how I would feel about it, but the more I hear and read, the more excited I am to go for it!

As you may know, I am one of the freaks of nature who opened P90X and finished all 90 days! It was hard! The workouts were long and tough! One of the workouts was 90 minutes long! Ain’t nobody got time for that! I had a baby and a toddler and 2 other kids at the time, but I was determined to get it done! Sometimes I had to split it up into 2 chunks depending on the day and the mood of the children.

But, I can’t argue with the results that I was able to achieve with it…so was it worth it?! Absolutely! Would I do it again? I think not. I do some of my favorite workouts from time to time, just adding them into my routine here and there (one of the perks of being a workout DVD collector!). I just don’t see myself tackling that 90 day schedule again anytime soon! 🙂


So NOW…with P90X3, we’ll be able to get the same results in HALF the time! Sign me up! I am looking to mix up my routine again, and this seems like JUST what I need! This is a 90 day program and the workouts are a mere 30 minutes!!! EVERYBODY has time for THAT! It will even come with access to an app for tracking and planning!

Check out some results from the test groups.


Here’s why it works!

Muscle acceleration explained
Many P90X fans were hooked on the science of muscle confusion – which introduced variety to the workouts and prevented plateauing. P90X3 takes a hint from that success and from studies showing the most dramatic body transformations happen within the first 30 minutes of exercise. Enter muscle acceleration, a Tony Horton-approved highly-structured schedule with an incredibly high level of intensity and an unprecedented variety of moves. The gurus behind P90X3 combined exercises and added some twists to maximize your time and keep every muscle challenged for a full 30 minutes.

Here’s what I can tell you about P90X3:

  • It is NOT a graduate program. ANYONE can do it, regardless of whether or not you’ve ever done a P90X workout.
  • There will be modifications so ANYONE can keep up!
  • Variety: 16 different workouts
  • Only 30 minutes
  • Eliminates almost ALL excuses!
  • Still full of that Tony Horton humor that we all love/tolerate! lol!
  • You’ll need just some weights and resistance bands.

Special Offer!

From December 10-31, the Challenge Pack will be on-sale for $180 (after that it will go up to $205).  With the challenge pack, you will get the base program, plus 30 day supply of Shakeology (HD) as well as a 30-Day VIP Team Beachbody Club Membership for personalized meal planning and additional support. *The Challenge Pack price saves you about $100 versus purchasing these items separately!

But wait…there’s MORE! 😉 If you order through me, from December 10-31, you’ll receive a super cool P90X3 hat! Bonus! 🙂

Challenge Group starting Monday, January 6!

For anyone who invests in a challenge pack, I will be offering a support and accountability group for as long as you stick with the program! This group is a FREE service I provide to my customers, and it works! You get a FREE coach who will work with you everyday and help you reach your goals! I will stick with you and provide the daily tips and motivation you’ll need to get it done! Maybe you’ve tried other workout programs in the past, and had trouble sticking with it. This group will give you the support you’ll need to get it done this time! If you want to join the P90X3 group in January, and start your year off strong…fill out the form below!



My Secrets Revealed…Tonight!

aug2012-aug2013I’m coming up on my one year anniversary as a Beachbody coach. How has my life changed since then?

Let’s recap:


  • I’ve lost 24 pounds and many inches (I lost count after 20!).
  • I’m in the best shape of my life!
  • I work from home.
  • I’m my own boss.
  • I’m earning an extra income for my family.
  • I found something I am very passionate about!
  • I wake up excited every day to ‘work’.
  • I have helped over 100 people start and continue to live healthier lives.
  • I have a team of passionate coaches that have the same outlook and goals as I do.
  • I’m having an absolute BLAST!

You might ask how coaching helped me lose weight and get in the best shape of my life. Well, the answer is accountability! Not every coach is at their goal weight when the get started. Actually, I would say MOST are not! They are on this journey, and inviting others along with them. When you ask people to join you, you can’t expect them to do something that you’re not doing yourself! Being a coach has kept me accountable to my goals!

If you’ve ever been remotely curious about what I do as a coach, or if it’s something you think might be a good fit for you, too…than check out a webinar that I am co-hosting tonight with my friend and fellow coach, Amanda. We are getting ready to begin our next 6 Week Coaching internship that will start on September 9, and want to take this opportunity FIRST to share the basics of coaching and how we both came to try it, and love it!

We’ll be on at 8:30 pm EST, tonight (Wednesday, 8/28). It should only run about 30 minutes. There is absolutely no commitment! You sit, you watch, you decide if this is something you might be interested in doing.  You can register with this link: http://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=E958DC86884B3C

And if you like, send me a quick note to let me know you’ll be there! I’d love to know who I’m talking to. 🙂


Hey! Let’s Eat Some Frogs!

challenge-Mind_bodySo if I’ve learned anything over the past year…weight loss is WAY more of a mental challenge than a physical challenge! Yes working out is hard, and it makes you sore and tired at the beginning, etc…but the real challenge is keeping your focus and getting beyond the doubts, frustrations, set-backs and plateaus that you will inevitably encounter along the way! You’ll wonder some days how you will be able to carve out the time for a workout in your busy schedule. You’ll be tired, and crabby and just down sometimes. That’s when you need your brain to remember that exercise makes you feel BETTER! You’ll struggle with nutrition, which is ALL mental! You have to retrain your brain not to pay attention to cravings caused by years of bad eating habits. You have to remember that food is fuel, not therapy or something to pass the time. These things are HARD to do!  It’s almost entirely mental!

That is why I’ve decided that September is a great time, with the kids going back to school, to do some book-learning and brain re-training of our own! I’ve decided to start a book club/weight-loss support group. Two for the price of one! 🙂 I need some accountability to work on my own self-improvement goals (both physical AND mental). This group will be open to anyone who wants to get in better shape AND learn how to get MORE done in LESS time (including your workouts!).

Join me for this “Biggest Loser” type of challenge AND book club! We’ll be reading Eat That Frogby Brian Tracy. We’ll be starting on September 9! We’ll workout, eat better, read just 5 pages a day – everybody’s got time for that! We’ll be keeping each other ON TRACK through a private Facebook support group for 30 days. I will be your coach, providing daily motivation, tips and recipes, and we’ll all check in daily for accountability.

Fitness + Nutrition + Accountability = Success!

Don’t believe me? Read some of the testimonials from previous challenge participants by clicking HERE!

*Anyone who joins with a “Challenge Pack” will receive the book for FREE! I only have a couple of spots left for this one.

What is a Challenge Pack? EVERYTHING you’ll need for maximum results: new fitness program + Shakeology + 30 day club membership for additional support and personalized meal-planning.
