What Beachbody Coaching has done for me

Personal Post Alert ~ Ok, this is way out of my comfort zone! I would have never shared my income when I worked in the corporate world for 8 years, but I want to share this to show what is possible as a Beachbody Coach.

July was one of the most up and down months I’ve had in a long time! A lot of exciting things happened, and a lot of really stressful things happened. Two of the exciting things were moving into our first home and having our best month ever as Beachbody Coaches.


I started as a Beachbody Coach in Dec. 2011. I would have never thought I would do anything like this! At the time, I was working three side jobs and we had a 4 month old and a 2-year-old. I knew I needed to work because my husband still had a long ways to go with school. I loved my jobs, but I hated leaving our girls. It broke my heart every time when I was gone during the day. I worked full-time (40-50 hrs. a week) up until the day our first daughter was born and went back to work just 2 weeks later after a c-section. I remember starring at my computer and just crying because I didn’t want to be there. It was so hard.

I was able to work less during my second pregnancy (about 30 hrs. a week), and then I was able to work even less after she was born (25 ish hrs a week), but it was still hard. We needed my income to live off of, and I didn’t see any other way.

I loved Beachbody workouts and programs. They helped me lose over 50 lbs. and get in shape after our daughters were born. When I found out I could workout, get in shape and get paid to help others, I was ALL IN! I thought it would be the best job, and it really is!


I had no idea what I was doing as a coach for the first 18 or so months. I just loved helping people and earning money was a bonus.

In April 2015, our family had moved to a new state, my husband was in grad school and in and out of work. We hit rock bottom financially. We used up our savings and credit card limits, and it was a scary time.

I met a mentor from Beachbody’s Corporate Office at that time who said he would work with me and help me know how to grow my business. Then I contacted Bob Lucido on our team, who was a lawyer for 20 years and is now a very successful coach. They helped me to know what to do and how to be successful.

Long story short, Beachbody has completely changed my life in so many ways. For the first time, I’m not worried about having another baby and how we are going to support our family. For the FIRST time we are living in a real house (I haven’t lived in one since I moved from my parents’ home in 1999) and for the FIRST time, I don’t have to work away from home when our baby is born!! Now, I only work 15-20 hours a week when I want to doing something I love from home. smile emoticon

I never thought it would be this awesome or I’d ever get this far in the business, but I’m so glad I did it and I never gave up when it got hard. It hasn’t been an easy road, and it has taken a LOT of hard work, but it’s been one of the most rewarding journeys I’ve ever been on.
