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!

If you’d like to see if this opportunity would be a good fit for you, let’s chat! Contact me below.

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!

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!

life_changing_income

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?

pyramid_scheme

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!

P90X3 is HERE!

p90X3_banner

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! 🙂

before-after-P90X-Collage

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.

P90X3-Test-Group-Results

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!

 

 

In One Year!

love_what_you_doThis week we celebrated Labor Day. A day – free from work. A day to spend relaxing, doing what we enjoy INSTEAD of work. Well, what if our work was something we actually enjoyed and looked forward to doing everyday?!? What a CRAZY idea right?!

Not really…Exactly 1 year ago, I decided to be a Beachbody coach – at first for the discounts and maybe for a little family ‘fun’ money! It’s turned into SO much more than that for me! I look forward to getting up every day and seeing how my challenge groups are doing, or answering messages from people who want to get started on their own fitness journeys, or become coaches themselves. I get to workout, eat healthy foods and talk about it! If you know me, you know I like to talk! And it’s part of my “job” now! SCORE!

A lot has changed in one year! I signed up as a coach right around Labor Day of last year, ready for a change and a way to get OFF the plateau I’d been stuck on for the last couple of years. I instantly fell in love with the idea of helping people while I helped myself! Since then, I’m down 24 pounds and UP an average of $500-$1000 per month (and I’m not stopping!)! It’s more than a hobby or a pastime for me, it is my passion now. And I enjoy every single minute I GET to spend building my business, and helping other people along the way. To get my own friends and family on-board and adopt a healthier lifestyle, has been icing on the cake! Labor Day…Ha! I don’t need it, every day is my Labor Day! 🙂

Because I LOVE what I do, I get excited to share it with anyone else who’s interested in the following:
1) helping others
2) health & fitness
3) getting in the best shape of your life
4) being your own boss
5) working when, where and how you want
6) earning up to $100-$500 extra dollars per month to start, with the potential to double that within a year, and keep growing your income from there – All while having FUN!

New 6 Week Internship starting Monday, Sept. 9!!

Interested? I only have room for a couple more people who are ready to commit to a 6 week internship where you’ll receive daily training, and learn the tips necessary to build a successful business of your own. We start Monday, so let me know a.s.a.p.!

Fine print: Sorry, no coaches or those working with other coaches.

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:

Beachbody-Coaching

  • 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!

*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.

There are some GREAT sales going on this month, too!

So, if you read my last post…then continue on now. If not, I’ll give you a minute to go and check it out….

….OK, Now, you’ve seen my before and after pictures. The first picture was taken in August 2012, just a few weeks before I decided to go for it as a Beachbody coach. And the second picture is me now, in February 2013, having too much fun to even call my job ‘work’. I’m 5 months in as a coach now, getting in the best shape of my entire life and getting paid on top of it! I get to pay it forward too, and help other people who are on their own journeys. I get to share health and fitness with my friends and family, which has been so fun and rewarding! It wasn’t a step I was totally sure about taking at first. I had some doubts and reservations, but after the first step, I started sprinting! And I haven’t looked back or regretted it for one minute.

If you enjoy helping others…If you like the idea of getting paid to get fit…If you LOVE the idea of being able to work from home, be your own boss and set your own hours…If you would enjoy earning some extra income WHILE helping to end the trend of obesity…than you should check it out!

If you’ve ever considered coaching, or just want to hear more, I’m doing a quick webinar tomorrow night @9:00 EST. It should only last about 30 minutes. I’ll tell my story, and explain a little bit more about what coaching is, and what I do, and how you might enjoy it, too! You can register here: http://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=E953DE8587473D

“See” you then! 🙂
