6 Month Recap!


My husband, Patrick, and I have been Beachbody Coaches for about six months now. It has been so rewarding so far! We’ve met some amazing people and have seen people’s lives change for the better. We are excited for the opportunities to come.

We were introduced to the coaching opportunity in December 2011. It was about four months after our baby girl was born. I was doing Beachbody’s Insanity workout and decided to login to their website to get a little more motivation.

I signed up on the site two years before and was assigned to a coach. I heard from him a couple times then when I emailed him. He would write short, one sentence answers back to me. I didn’t feel very motivated, and I was looking for more support.

My current coach messaged me on the site and said he had challenge groups going on Facebook. I was excited to get support and motivation, but not sure who he was so I didn’t respond right away. Then he messaged me again about the coaching opportunity. He said he had a free training to learn what it was all about. I was very interested.

I LOVE motivating and inspiring people to be better. I’ve technically “coached” people through their fitness journeys for years just for fun. I love helping people get physically fit and feel better about themselves. When I heard about the coaching opportunity, I thought it was a perfect fit for me!


I was looking for something I could do at home so I could be home more with my little girls. I worked about 30-40 hours a week before I had our second daughter, and wanted to work less. After I had our second daughter, I started working less, but wasn’t sure how we were going to pay for everything.

I knew it would workout somehow, but wasn’t really sure how.

Several months before I was introduced to the coaching opportunity, I was introduced to Brendon Burchard’s marketing ideas. He is an incredible marketer!! I love his ideas about marketing and life in general.

He says you need to ask yourself these questions. Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?

Those questions really stuck with me. I wanted to fully live, love and matter while making a difference in peoples’ lives. A real, lasting difference.

Brendon also talks about become an expert in something, packaging it, and selling it online. He’s become a millionaire by doing this.


I tried to think of what I could package and sell online. I have a degree in public relations and over seven years of experience in the field of marketing and  public relations. I thought I could create a training to help businesses learn how to effectively promote their businesses. I may still do this, but I didn’t want to take time to create everything to make it happen at the time. I also thought about starting my own public relations firm. I may still do this also in the future.

Anyway, long story short. I found Beachbody’s coaching program. It was a perfect fit! I love health and fitness. I love helping people be healthy and fit. I also love helping people grow their businesses. It’s great also because I don’t have to come up with an amazing product or do any of the shipping. They’ve already taken care of that for me! So all I need to do is help people while promoting their awesome products! It sounded great to me! 🙂

My husband wasn’t so sure about what I was doing at first, but he was supportive. He became a coach a few weeks after me! It has been fun doing this business together. He helps me with the videos and we talk about the ways we can best help people and run the business. I love being able to talk to him about it.

So that’s our story. We’ve been doing this for about six months now. As I mentioned earlier, it has been so great to see people’s lives change for the better. That is our main motivation. It is a bonus that we get paid to do it too!


For those of you who are curious, so far we’ve made $5,105.36 since the beginning of December 2011. We didn’t do much with the business in December since we were out of town for the holidays. So it’s really been since the beginning of January. We have 48 coaches on our team, and we’ve personally sponsored 19. It has been exciting seeing our team grow to be able to inspire and motivate others.
