Last week one of my personally sponsored Beachbody coaches, Chris Balmert, sent me a message to let me know that he is now ranked #4 in the entire Beachbody Coach network! I’m very proud of Chris and the effort he has put into getting to where he’s at in the business, but what makes this so special is that now the Top 4 Beachbody Coaches are all coaches associated with my team, Team Next Level! Wayne Wyatt is #1, Lindsay Matway is #2, me at #3 (I also won Top Beachbody Coach 2010), and now Chris at #4. If there was every any doubt that Team Next Level is the Top Beachbody Coach Team in the entire network, I’m pretty sure that doubt has been eliminated!
First of all, I want to take some time out and talk about just how proud I am of all 3 of them for getting to this point in their Beachbody Business. Let’s start with Wayne Wyatt. I remember Wayne approaching me about being his Beachbody Coach through P90X about a year and a half ago, and he was immediately one of those guys who stuck out because of his enthusiasm and willingness to listen to my advice and follow the program 100%. I knew he would get great results, but I had no idea he would literally get the best P90X results I’ve ever seen! Once I saw his results, I talked to him about becoming a Beachbody Coach, and knew he would be very successful because if he could commit himself 100% to the program and not deviate from the workouts and diet, he would do the exact same with the Beachbody Business, and I was right. After training Wayne on the things that I’ve done to become a successful Beachbody Coach, he ran with it and emerged as the current top Beachbody coach in the entire country! In fact, he’s on pace to win Top Beachbody Coach 2012! Wayne is a very motivated and driven individual, which obviously plays a big role in his success, but what really makes Wayne a top coach is how he has never approached this business as a way to make money, but rather to help change lives. He is a man of integrity, passion, and heart, and focuses solely on making a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis, exemplifying what Team Next Level is all about. I can’t be any prouder of him!
Lindsay Matway, the current #2 Coach in the nation, is not “officially” part of TNL, but she is a coach on my team. I consider her my “adopted” coach because I have sort of taken her under my wing since she first became a Beachbody Coach. When she signed up, she didn’t sign up under anyone, but instead went to Beachbody.com and got assigned a random sponsor. Lindsay sent me a message asking for help, and I told her that I would consider her part of the team and help her just as I help my own personally sponsored coaches. Little did I know that not only would she emerge as a Top Beachbody Coach, but also as a great friend! Melinda and I met Lindsay and her husband Billy for the first time at the Chicago Game Plan Event, and there was an immediate connection and we all became friends. Since then, we have gone on quite a few trips together and always stay in constant contact. Again, just like Wayne, what separates Lindsay from the rest of the network is her willingness to change lives by helping people. Money is not her driving force, but rather she does what she does so that she can have an impact on the world, and she’s doing one heck of a job at it! On top of that, she is so driven and focused on succeeding that nothing will get in her way! I’m so proud of her and glad to have her on Team Next Level.
Chris Balmert and I have a rather interesting story. He actually lives locally, but we never knew each other until he sent me a message online about becoming a Beachbody Coach. After talking to him, I come to find out he was in the same conference as I was in college and we played baseball against each other! I knew that he had the drive and passion to become a Top Beachbody Coach, but there was one thing in the way, his stubbornness, and he will be the first to admit it! One of the issues with having such a choleric, success driven personality is that we (yes, that’s my personality type as well) have a hard time taking advice from other people. However, I got over my stubbornness pretty quickly because I knew that I had to if I wanted to succeed in this business, but Chris had a little harder time than I did. Even though I had proven my success, Chris didn’t want to listen to me and use my proven methods to build a successful Beachbody Business. Instead, he had his own methods that didn’t work, and it got to a point where he was so frustrated he sent in his cancellation form. That day I called him up and talked to him, explaining that he needed to change his ways and to trust me, and after the hour long conversation he called Beachbody and told them to stop processing his cancellation because he wanted to stay in the business. That was the day his life changed and the day he committed himself to doing the things he needed to do in order to become successful. Now, he has emerged as one of the Top Beachbody Coaches in the nation, and I couldn’t be more proud! On top of that, we have become great friends and hang out quite often outside of Beachbody. Like the other two coaches above, Chris is another one who has a complete passion for the business and changing lives and is a perfect example of what Team Next Level is all about.
As you can see, Team Next Level is a team of passion, integrity, and hard work, and in fact, those are our core values listed on our team training site. When looking for people to join my team, I look for those characteristics because those are what we are all about, what will allow people to be successful in the Beachbody Business. Wayne, Lindsay, and Chris are perfect examples of that, and those characteristics are the reasons why they have emerged as the Top Beachbody Coaches in the entire network. I am SO PROUD of them, and so thankful that they are part of my team and that I can honestly call all of them great friends. Team Next Level is the top Beachbody team in the entire nation, and if you would like to become a Beachbody Coach on our team, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set up a call to see if you’re a good fit.
