Becoming a Beachbody Coach: My Journey & What Coaching is All About!


Hey you!

Becoming a Beachbody Coach

Why Did I Join as a Beachbody Coach?

I initially started with Beachbody to work on my own personal journey — I had just become a mother for the first time and wanted an effective, efficient way to get back to a place of health and confidence! My coach at the time sent me a few packets of Shakeology to try, and I loved it! The ingredient list was fantastic, I loved the taste, and loved the ease of it, especially as I was preparing to go back to work full-time after having my daughter.


I decided to become a Beachbody coach, initially just for the for the pure sake of saving money on my Shakeology! (I’m totally a penny pincher sometimes and I got 25% off EVERYTHING just for being a coach!). I joined while purchasing a Challenge Pack with 21 Day Fix DVDs and a bag of Shakeology so the fee to join was even waived!


Before I completed my coaching application form, I was hesitant. I was SO skeptical of the multi-level marketing platform. I thought there was no way I could turn a passion for health and fitness into a job! Despite being the ultimate optimist in other aspects of my life, I thought this was a scam — even my dad said, “Isn’t that a pyramid scheme?”


When I first signed up I told my coach that 1) I didn’t have time to coach and that 2) I had no intentions of “coaching” anyone else.


What I didn’t tell her is I thought it was a scam and too good to be true, and that I read the fine print over and over to make sure I could get out of it if needed.


My Challenge Pack arrived, and I started my accountability group and Day 1 of the 21 Day Fix. And by the time I had the program, I knew I had to start sharing these programs and products with others because they had made such a positive impact on my life!


I invited others to join me, and four people joined in the first month. They loved it as much as I did, and I quickly started building a team and earning an income.


I still thought of this as a hobby — I thought it was fun to share with others, and it would be great if my hobby could pay for my products, as well as to provide even a bit of money for future fertility treatments. That would indeed be icing on the cake!


Then, as I saw the coaches on my team and in my upline leaving their corporate jobs while changing the lives of hundreds of men and women, I realized that this was so much more than a hobby — it was a possibility to change my family’s life!


What Fears Did I Have Before I Began Coaching?

I was terrified of the judgment.

I was terrified people would think I was "salesy."

I was terrified it was a "pyramid scheme".

I was terrified I would fail.

I was terrified I was being stupid believing I could actually do it.

I was terrified of not being present enough for my family.


Now, I share this coaching opportunity and my initial fears with others because I know how skeptical I was.


It’s not conventional. It’s not a 9 to 5. It doesn’t require previous experience or a degree. It doesn’t have a guaranteed salary. But the potential is endless and once I became a mom, I yearned for more flexibility and time with my kids!


As I said, I was the most skeptical person in the world when it came to network marketing. I didn’t want to have to pre-purchase any products, host parties, or invest thousands of dollars to start my own business.


But I realized that it wasn’t any of those things.


And I needed something different for my life. I am by far a different person than when I began this journey. I am the healthiest I have ever been because I have accountability and support and the right program. I am part of an amazing team, I get to travel more, grow as a leader, develop new friendships, and connect with others around the world! Every day, I am surrounded by people who are positive and uplifting and make me a better person.

What are the Benefits Becoming a Beachbody Coach?

Work on your own journey.

Share your story.

Help others along the way.

And get paid to work out.


Becoming a coach has changed my life in countless ways. It’s transformed my physical fitness, mental health, finances, friendships, marriage, and life. I have worked hard, but the return has been immeasurable.


I get to use programs created by some of the best fitness trainers in the world. I get to use products that have transformed my health (and also taste delicious). I have learned what a proper portion size is, learned to be more creative in the kitchen, learned how to meal plan, and learned how to use food as fuel!


And now I get to teach this to others.



One of the biggest aspects of coaching is hosting monthly and ongoing health and accountability groups. These are groups where challengers and other coaches post daily, inspire one another, share our failures, share our struggles, and ultimately reach our goals together!


When I talk to many of my challengers, friends, or family, a big reason why they have been unsuccessful in their health journey in the past is that they lacked accountability.


Finding a coach and being a part of these accountability groups changed EVERYTHING for them. On days they didn’t want to work out, they saw others in the group getting it done despite having four kids, a crazy work day, a sleepless night, etc. Instead of throwing in the towel, they found inspiration in the group to help them stay on track!


I feel so blessed to be able to help others stay accountable, but you know what?! It helps ME stay accountable to my own health journey.


I am inspired by my challengers each day! By their hard work, dedication, and commitment. When I have a bad day, I go to them for inspiration and motivation. Coaching is the best of both worlds — my challengers and I are a team.



I was always on a team growing up — even through my college days when I played soccer at the University of Washington. After college, I missed being on a team, didn’t realize how much until I started this business! Not only that, but to be honest, as a busy working mom, life can sometimes feel a bit isolated.


But our team is an instant community of amazing and wonderful people who have so much in common with you.


They are people who make you want to be better, work harder, dream bigger, and grow as a person and leader. We are each other’s support systems, teammates, and partners — friends that feel like family.


Earn An Income

One of the things I love most about this business is that you get to decide where you want to take it. You get to decide how hard you work, when you work, and where you work!


Sunday nights used to bring on such a sense of dread for me. I’d take a deep breath as I laid out my clothes for the next day, made a mental to-do list, and packed my lunch. Then enter children and the list got longer — pack the diaper bag, baths, and bedtime routine, etc. I had tremendous anxiety about the week ahead. I knew something needed to change.


Because of this business, I can say that although the to-do list is still as long on Sundays (that’s what three kids will do to ya!), the dread and anxiety are gone! I don’t have to leave my kiddos for 40+ hour work weeks! I no longer feel completely drained at the end of each day. I feel more balanced.


I no longer feel the strain of finances (grad school loans, infertility bills, house payments, and the endless amounts of kid activity payments that most parents can relate to). It’s amazing how financial freedom can bring more peace to your life!


If you’ve been following me on social media, you may have seen my posts before that talked about how this opportunity helped us pay off our first IVF treatment, and then helped us to pay for the subsequent treatments, leading us to have a family of 5, something I had once thought would never be possible. This to me is priceless!


I‘ve also been able to cut my corporate hours and be home more with my kids, travel more, meet new friends, and provide for my family in so many different ways.


So, whether you want to earn a few hundred dollars a month to help pay for diaper or debt or bills, earn a part-time income, or eventually earn a full-time income, the possibilities are endless!


You just have to be willing to be commit, work hard, and use the tools and training our team has created for you!


I have worked with coaches that have various goals for their business, from those who want to help pay for the products they already use and love, to those who want to leave their corporate jobs and be work-at-home moms!


Once you join our incredible team, you will receive one-on-one mentorship from me and be given the tools and training that my team and I have created to help you be successful in this business from the very start. I will help you work toward your financial goals, whatever they may be!

Rewards & Travel

Each month that you help others you can earn prizes, bonuses, and money towards our annual Success Club trip — essentially a few days in paradise to celebrate and hang out with your team — places like Mexico, Punta Cana, and even cruises!


Because of this coaching business, I’ve been able to travel to Santa Monica for a Leadership conference, to New Orleans, and will head to Indianapolis this year for our national annual conference!


Recognizing Success

Far too often, we are in jobs where we are underpaid, under-recognized and underappreciated — that will never happen on this team!


I love, love, love being able to celebrate with my team! I get to watch my teammates reach personal goals in their health and business that bring tears to my eyes. We as a team recognize each other for personal and team accomplishments, and Beachbody as a company also does an amazing job of celebrating your growth in your business — whether for rank advancements, income growth, team building, or the number of people you help each month on their journey.


Everyone needs and deserves recognition, and in a world sometimes full of negative news and words, we NEED more love and positivity to be spread.

Why Do I Share This Opportunity With Others?

You might be reading this with anxiety about going to work tomorrow, counting down the hours until the weekend. Maybe you’re in an unfulfilling job, have a boss you don't want to work for, a paycheck that doesn’t reflect your hard work, or simply that you would much rather be at home with your kids!


Whatever it is, I'd love to offer you a chance to look at what I do as a real opportunity for you! There is no degree required, no specific fitness level or experience, no nutrition expertise necessary.


The only thing you need is a desire to make your life better and a passion for helping others!


  • NO, you don’t need to have already achieved your own fitness goals.
  • NO, you don’t have to have a giant social media following.
  • NO, you don’t have to quit your full-time job.
  • NO, you don't have to be a fitness or nutrition expert.


And, NO, you don’t have to do it alone — I will mentor you and provide you with the training you need to succeed.


There is no greater gift than to have a job you love. A job that never feels like work. A job that you can do from anywhere and everywhere with Wifi. A job that is done on your own terms — your own hours, your own freedom, your own choices. That is what coaching is for me.


I started this journey because the ability to work out from home and stay in shape as a busy mom was something I fell in love with! Then, I fell in love with the other women who I met through my accountability groups. And I fell in love with sharing this with others — helping them find confidence, happiness, balance, and for some, financial freedom!


If this sounds appealing to you, then consider the journey for yourself. How might it change your life? I hope you say yes and join us! This has changed my life, the lives of the coaches on our team, and it can change yours, too.
