During the Beachbody Game Plan event in Chicago this weekend, we were asked what our “why” is. Why did you decide to get into shape and begin P90X? Why did you decide to become a Beachbody Coach? Unaware that we were going to be asked these questions, my mind went back in time and thought about the reasons I did these things. So now I’m going to share with you all what my “why” is.
Why did I decide to start P90X? I had hit a point in my life where I wasn’t happy with myself. After college baseball had ended, I stuck with the same eating habits and let myself slowly fall out of shape. To make matters worse, I went from working out every day to about once a week. Really, it was a recipe for disaster and it was just a matter of time before I really fell out of shape, and that’s exactly what happened about 3 months after graduation. My confidence was at an all time low and my job was suffering because of it. I had reached the lowest point in my life and knew it was time for a change. That’s when I discovered P90X on an informercial one night, and little did I know it would change my entire life.
Why did I decide to become a Beachbody Coach? After I had such an amazing P90X transformation, my coach approached me to coach others through their own fitness journey. At first, I had no idea what was involved, and was actually very skeptical, but after doing some research and understanding that it wasn’t a scam, I decided to give it a try. I didn’t get into coaching to make money. Far from it actually. I have always been passionate about helping others and about fitness, and I thought about how great it would be to take on the coaching responsibility. However, I also thought about how great it would be to have financial independence, work in my own home, make my own hours, and take as many vacations as I would like. I’ve always been a high goal setter, and I don’t quit until I reach those goals. My goal was to make Beachbody Coaching a full time job, so for the past year and a half I’ve been doing little positive things every day to help me reach that goal. Because of my hard work, dedication, persistance, positive attitude, and willingness to help others, I have just about reached my goal. I’m making enough money now to make this my full-time job!
