A lot of people are asking me why I became a Beachbody coach. For me it’s about helping people and making a positive impact on their lives. It’s about inspiring themto dig deeper and push themselves past their self-imposed limitations. Secondly, I am fortunate to be married to very successful and supporting husband who suggested that I go for it and start my own business. After all, he started our business in a 700 sq. ft. apartment in Queens, NY with no money and built a successful software company which allows us to live a life that most people only dream of. So no, I’m not doing this for the money or because I’m bored. I’m doing this because I know what it’s like to struggle with weight issues. My whole life has been a roller coaster of fitness. I had my chubby stage in my teen years and even tried nutritional programs like Nutrisystem, but nothing provided me the long term results that I was looking for.
Then in my early twenties I discovered weight lifting and joined a gym where I eventually met my husband and soul mate Robert. We both trained together for a number or years. At the time he was a NYC Police Officer and I was working at the gym we were training at. We fell in love and got married a few years later. After we got married we both stopped training, essentially losing most of muscle we acquired in our twenties. I remained on the thin side until 2001. That’s when I got pregnant with my daughter and ballooned up from 110lbs to 187lbs! Luckily, I was able to lose the majority of the weight within six months of giving birth but wasn’t exactly fit. Then in 2007, I got pregnant with our second child and my weight shot back up to 184lbs. The second time around was much harder to lose the weight. From that point forward my weight fluctuated for the next 6 years between 144- 155 lbs.
One night, my husband and I were lying in bed watching TV when the Insanity infomercial came on. At first we both thought there was no way we could ever work out like that, especially now that we were so out of shape. I remembered that just a few months earlier a friend gave me her Insanity DVD’s as gift but they were just sitting in my the closet collecting dust. It was at that moment that I committed to waking up the next morning to begin my transformation with Insanity. I woke up, blew the dust off the DVD’s and gave it a whirl!
When I started Insanity in October of 2013 I was about 144lbs and could not run down the block without being winded! However, each day I got up and just kept pressing playing and doing what I could do. By the 2nd week, something clicked in me, my body was changing but more importantly my attitude about myself was changing. I began to feel so good that I began incorporating running into my routine and did my very 1st 1/2 marathon in January 2014 then a second 1/2 marathon in February 2014 beating my 1st 1/2 marathon time a month earlier by 15 minutes! In April of 2014 I competed in a 5K and ran 7:59 min mile pace taking second place in the over forty category (I missed 1st place by 1 second!). I owed it all to Beachbody and Insanity, that’s it I was hooked. I could not wait to spread the word on the effectiveness of Insanity and the nutritional program! That’s when I decided to become an Insanity Certified instructor and use this amazing program to help others.
Fortunately for me, my husband is an amazing person. He is always motivating family and friends to reach for their dreams and realize the unlimited potential in all of us. Anyone who knows him understands what I am saying. He suggested that if I was so passionate about helping people why not start my own business doing just that. So I took his advice and decided the go for it! In May 2014, Positively Diesel, LLC was born with the mission of guiding people to live a positive, healthy, physically fit and active lifestyle. Originally, I thought just teaching classes would aid in the goal of introducing people to various health and fitness programs that would bring them dramatic results in a short amount of time. However, I quickly realized that there are a lot of people out there who are not ready for a class like Insanity and need to start slower and learn some nutritional fundamentals first. In addition, I’m only one person and have two children that I homeschool so from that perspective it limits the amount of people I can reach since my time to run classes is a limited. Bottom line, teaching Insanity classes is fun and rewarding but does not scale very well. That’s when I discovered Beachbody; it was the perfect fit for me. Beachbody has great products and nutritional support with a proven track record of success and a mission to help #EndTheTrend of obesity. Plus, I was so enthused with my transformation as a result of using their products that I wanted to share my success everyone. Look, it’s no secret that we have a major crisis in this country. Obesity has reached epidemic proportions in America. In fact, according to a 2013 Gallup poll The adult obesity rate in 2013 was 27.2%, up from 26.2% in 2012, and is on pace to surpass all annual average obesity rates since Gallup-Healthways began tracking it in 2008.
As Team Beachbody Coach I am able to help many more people get fit and healthy by sharing products and programs that worked for me and I believe in. At the same time I am able to make a decent income in the process which is a nice side benefit. So far I have completed Insanity, Asylum Volume 1, Asylum Volume 2, P90X3 and now I am about to start Body Beast. I currently drink Shakeology every day and follow the clean eating lifestyle as well. So, I do not SELL anything except for a healthy lifestyle that is based upon the principles I follow each day, which is eating whole natural foods and regular exercise. As a Team Beachbody coach, I am able to promote Beachbody fitness programs and supplements with the confidence of knowing that they work and are backed by a top notch company. Both Robert and I are living proof of their effectiveness. Both of us are in better shape today in our forties then we were in our thirties and we owe it all to the Beachbody fitness and nutritional plans. Let me assure you that if you follow the Beachbody workouts and nutritional plans for any of the programs then you will get the results that you are looking for, guaranteed! I not only have transformed my own life physically but I now have a more positive outlook on life and I LOVE being able to help people do the same! The rewards of being a coach are endless and exciting.
In summary, becoming a Beachbody coach was really just a natural progression from where I started. Plus, I love a challenge and teaching people how to get into shape and eat properly all while making a positive impact on their lives. That’s why I do it and will continue to do for many years to come. Can you make money doing this? Sure, I know some people that have quit their job and end up making six figure incomes. Heck there are even some people that make over a million dollars a year as a Beachbody Coach. But for me, It’s not about the money, it’s about helping people reach their goals. That’s what really excites and drives me!
