Beachbody Coaching: The Best Six Months of My Life

Six months ago I decided to take a leap of faith and it has been life changing. Let me tell you the story. 

I hit a low in my life last summer. My husband and I were trying to sell our home, and had already moved out, when an upstairs pipe broke and flooded the entire house (womp, womp, womp). I literally cried every day for 2 months. We were paying our mortgage, our "luxury" apartment rent (which was 2.5 times our mortgage), plus the astronomical fees to get the house gutted and remodeled (luckily our homeowners insurance paid the majority, but I'll never forget getting a $600 electric bill for only 4 days of running industrial fans to dry out the hardwood floors). So needless to say, we had NO money. I was about to turn 30 and had always envisioned myself in my BEST shape. I had struggled with my weight my entire life and wanted to embark on a new chapter at the peak of my health. But unfortunately, stress and emotion got the best of me. I was drowning my worries in food and laying around crying all day, wondering how we were going to make it.

I was mindlessly scrolling Facebook one day, when I stumbled upon a post from my friend and cheerleading buddy from high school. She was starting a PiYo Challenge Group and was looking for people to join. I knew this was what I needed. I talked to my husband, and of course, we didn't have the money. But I was determined. I promised to give him EVERY cent I received for my 30th birthday...so let's talk about how embarrassing it is when you have to bank on your grandparent's birthday money at 30 freaking years old. Anyway, he begrudgingly agreed, seeing how distraught I was. 

Let me tell you, that Challenge Group CHANGED my life! I lost 10 pounds in one month, totally changed my outlook on my life and my circumstances (gone was the "woe is me" attitude), and gained a crazy amount of energy and positivity. When I returned to work in August, my boss asked me if I had lost weight and what I was doing because I had such a glow...that was the icing on the cake! 

Through this Challenge Group I learned about Beachbody Coaching. My coach, Megan, was on the #1 Beachbody Team and her coach was the Top Coach of the Year out of 200,000+ coaches. Each day, I'd look up Beachbody's Top Coaches on Facebook, the ones who were running teams of thousands and earning millions. They were all SO positive, so inspiring, and so happy. They gushed about their financial freedom, and almost all of them had a rags-to-riches story, talk about inspiring! I wanted in on that high, that love for life, that freedom. 

But common fears, worries, and misconceptions held me back. I was worried about what others would think of me. Worried that I would be wasting my time, time I really didn't have. I was, and still am, a full-time doctoral student and a full-time Instructional Coach for one of the largest cyber charter schools in the state of Pennsylvania as well as the entire country. Why would I dabble in something so silly when I'm going to be a doctor, right? 

But I kept following these coaches, kept getting more and more inspired, and decided to join Megan's 5 Day Sneak Peek into Coaching Group on Facebook in December.  I was literally sold after day two. What did I have to lose? A few Facebook friends I don't even care about?! I have a ton of student loan debt, so why not do something to earn a little extra cash. And as I said, I struggled with weight my entire life. So why not share what I've learned with others? I'm pretty much an expert at it now! 

My husband surprised me with a trip to Europe over Christmas break (and yes, we sold our house in October!), so I told Megan, my high school friend, Challenge Group Coach, and now Sponsor, that I would take the plunge and become a Beachbody Coach when I returned in January. I was thrilled. 

I told my husband I was doing this while on a train from Belgium to Paris and he freaked out. He said, "no way! That's a Pyramid Scheme." I was furious and told him to do his research before making such ridiculous accusations. He was the biggest doubter and naysayer. But guess what? After receiving my first few paychecks, he became interested. He started asking me more and more about it. And now he's a coach too! 

But I want to also share my progression with you. So when I started in January, I decided Beachbody Coaching would be a hobby. Any money I made would go to my debt. I had a job that I LOVED and a year and half left on my Doctorate. 

ONE month in, everything changed! In just 30 days, I realized what an incredible opportunity this was. Beachbody Coaching was about developing yourself and helping others. I was my own boss. I was in charge of everything I did. I was inspiring people on a daily basis. I was receiving messages from Challengers thanking me for changing their lives. It was beyond rewarding. It was such a WAKE UP call! I decided that I would work my Beachbody business as hard as I could, sacrificing every spare moment of my day to be successful. 

I'm now six months in and not only am I fulfilled and rewarded by the people I work with every day, I receive recognition, praise, and gifts almost daily. I'm not just an employee or a number. What's crazy is that in a few months, my weekly Beachbody earnings will match my "real" job's salary. It took me 25 years of school and work to reach that salary and probably only 10 months of Beachbody coaching to match it. Again, I am amazed. This is why I tell everyone that Beachbody Coaching is THE best kept secret. 

Here's my income progression so far:
