Pay It Forward Fitness and Health: Our Journey

Our Journey

My Journey - Marge

I began my fitness and health journey in earnest in January, 2011, when I became a Team Beachbody Coach. Prior to that date, I exercised intermittently when it was convenient and relied on prescription drugs to control my cholesterol. I was also about 20 pounds overweight at that time.

Fast forward to today, about four years later in December, 2014, and I find myself 20 pounds lighter, a daily exerciser, off all prescription medications, a daily drinker of Shakeology, and focused on healthy nutrition with every meal and snack I eat. Not only that, I’m excited to be working on the Team Beachbody mission of ending the trend of obesity worldwide and helping others achieve their goals and live healthy and fulfilling lives. That’s what I call a transformation!

Let’s break it down.

My Physical Transformation

As I mentioned, from the first month I signed up as a Team Beachbody Coach, I started to drink Shakeology every day for breakfast. I knew I couldn’t honestly share something I wasn’t using myself, and I was ready to have more energy. I didn’t expect the other benefits of Shakeology, which included instant weight loss of a few pounds to jump start my weight loss journey, lowered cholesterol (my doctor continues to high five me with each annual physical), and a generally improved overall feeling of well-being. Plus I learned a lot about superfoods, and came to appreciate how Beachbody goes to the ends of the earth (literally) to ensure the highest grade ingredients in Shakeology.You could not pay me any amount of money to give up my daily Shakeology!

As far as daily exercise, I have surprised myself with my progress from the beginner’s Shakeology workout, to Slimin6, to P90X (totally surprised myself with this one!), P90X3, Tai Cheng, Focus T25, 21 Day Fix, and next, Les Mills Combat. When I started exercising in 2011, I couldn’t do a squat without a chair behind me, and now I only need to hang on to the door knob for balance sometimes when I’m stretching my quads!

My Mental Transformation

I know I’m happier because I just feel so much better about the way I look and feel. One of the three vital behaviors of successful Team Beachbody Coaches is daily personal development. I hardly ever miss a day of reading a portion of a personal development book or listening to a motivational audio. What I discovered over the past three months through the Master Key Master Mind Alliance program I joined, is that there are a lot more active exercises you can do to get your thinking in line with where you want to go. Think of it as P90X for your thoughts. I have made huge strides in this area in the past few months with more to go, but I’m very excited about the combination of my physical and mental transformation, which is now coming totally together.

My Financial Transformation

When I enrolled as a Team Beachbody Coach, I was deliberately looking to add another income stream to our business. I was attracted to the fact that this business is a network marketing model with unlimited income potential. Since we joined Team Beachbody, we’ve grown our business to be able to enjoy an additional 5-figure income, which is on track to grow to a 6-figure income and beyond. This is going to enable us to tri-locate and work our business from the locations of our choice.

There are so many people who need and want what we’ve discovered through our affiliation with this amazing company. We’re excited to continue to expand our reach and help as many folks as possible around the world achieve their goals and live healthy, fulfilling lives!
