To be honest, I originally became a coach for the 25% discount. But now, it is my life! Besides my husband, kids, and faith of course!
Last year, I was a coach for another company, and watched my mom lose over 100 pounds. It was one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences I've ever had. I was so proud of her. But her and I both weren't completely on board or agreed with everything the other company and program taught.

Once I started losing weight with the 21 Day Fix, I realized I could have so many more experiences like that. I truly want to help others gain the self confidence that I watched my mom regain as she lost her weight. As a coach, you get to be a part of that, and have pride in the people you coach, unlike a family member or friend who are watching that person lose weight.
I become emotionally involved, and want to have my challengers succeed. I want to motivate them, but they also motivate me! Every time I am struggling to get my work out done, I think about how I don't want to let them down. Several times, they'll message me that they've just finished a work out, and I think to my self, "Well I better get off my butt and get going!"
There's an accountability with being a coach. You can't be slacking off and be motivating to others. But you don't have to be perfect either. I am real with my challengers. If I missed a work out, when I have cravings or give into a craving, whatever my struggles are I share them because they could be having the same struggles.
This has been the best job, outside of being a mother, that I've ever had. I love that I am getting paid to be peoples friends, essentially! I also love that I get what I put into it. If I have a lazy week, then I'm not going to get paid as much. But when I work my butt off, I am rewarded. This isn't a get rich quick scheme!
Beachbody has so many programs, and they have even released one since I've become a coach. There is a program out there for every single person, no matter what they want to accomplish.
As a coach, you are part of a team. You can't fail unless you don't try. You have your coach to help you. Her coach, and their coach, and on and on. I was amazed at the amount of resources available to help be a successful coach. Your team become family, and you want to help each other. I will help my coaches, and their coaches. It is such a positive and uplifting feeling being a part of this community.
Update: It's now been two months since I've started coaching. Today I paid off our medical bills. We didn't think we would be able to pay them off until the end of this year. I am finding the perfect balance with playing with my kids all day and working while my kids are sleeping. I try to get 3 hours of work in a day, but sometimes it's a little more, and usually it's less. I don't work everyday. The best part is it doesn't feel like working. I feel like I get paid to be people's friends and working out. I get amazing emails from people telling me I have changed their life, or inspired them to start working out, or they cut out soda, etc. For only being my second month in, I'm in awe with how much my life has changed.
I also am loving that I get to pick how much I make. I don't have someone telling me what my income will be. I don't have a boss telling me what I need to do. I can choose to do nothing, and some days I do! Or I can kick it out of the park and be AWESOME, and I do that, too!
