Workout Wednesday: Cize

Let me start by saying that:
–> I am not a dancer
–> I didn’t think I would like this workout
–> Sharing this is completely out of my comfort zone.

What I learned after 30 minutes:
–> Having fun is the best way to sweat!
–> Workouts with kids are fun…check out my photo bomber!
–> If I can do this, YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!
–> Dance like no one is watching and Cize the day!

Seriously, this 30 minute workout rocked! It went by so fast, it got me so sweaty and it was fun!

This is a brand new fitness program by Shaun T. called Cize. If you are looking for a FUN new workout, this is it! Do you want to #Cizeitup with me in September too?

Why Not You?

Why Not You

Have you ever felt like your life was completely out of control and the things you wanted were very far out of reach? Your heart was full of big dreams but you had no idea how you would make them happen? All you wanted was stability but your life was filled with chaos?

That was me last year when we moved to Washington. Our life of stability had come crashing down and we had to start over. I knew I wanted to stay home with my kids but I needed a way to help support our family financially. It was in those dark moments that I decided I would give Beachbody my all. I would do everything I could to grow my business and keep my dreams alive.

It’s been one year since I made that decision and In July I earned my biggest monthly income to date. My income grew from $249.85 last July to $3,283.76 this July. Over 1,000% growth in one year. WOW!

Do I share this to brag and boast about how awesome I am? NOPE. In fact, it scares me more than anything to share this with you. But I need you to know that if I can do it, SO CAN YOU!!

I’m not doing anything that I couldn’t teach you how to do. I don’t have any special secrets that help me be successful. The only thing that I’m doing is showing up every single day, working hard and pushing towards my goals. I have a huge desire to make my dreams come true. I want to buy a home, be able to travel and have freedom and financial stability.

If you’d like to know how I make money while working at home and helping people get fit and have thought “I could probably do that” but weren’t sure where to go from there, now is your chance to get some information.

Did I mention it’s FREE for active duty military and their spouses to coach plus it’s now FREE FOR ALL VETERANS who served in the military too?

I’m hosting a FREE Sneak Peek into coaching group where I’ll explain…
—> WHAT a Beachbody coach does everyday.
—> HOW it’s completely possible to build an income working part time doing what you love from home.
—> WHY coaching could help you live a more fulfilled life – in all aspects of your life
—> SEE IF it’s the right fit for YOU!

No pressure — no commitments — just learn more about it if I have peaked your interest! It’s a fitness lovers DREAM JOB — but you don’t have to be a fitness expert AT ALL! I want to shout about it from the rooftops because it has been LIFE CHANGING for me. Come hang out with me here on Facebook and see what it’s all about.

Comment below, “WHY NOT ME!” and I’ll add you into the group. If you have questions, send me a message at ashleyjoy80@gmail.com or to apply for more information:

3 Day Refresh:

Have you ever let your eating get out of control and before you know it the scale has creeped up 5 pounds and you feel bloated and gross? That was me earlier this week.

You might think that because I’m a fitness coach I am perfect with my nutrition and never struggle with eating bad foods. But the truth is I struggle just like everyone. I love Cheetos, beer, cake and Starbucks. I usually live by the rule of moderation (good clean eating 90% of the time and 10% freedom). However, sometimes I slip and before I know it the equation is 50/50 and the scale starts creeping up and I start to feel gross. When I start to slip up I need a complete refocus. I usually do the Shakeology Cleanse but this time I tried the 3 Day Refresh. 

Results: I lost 4.6 lbs and 2 inches off my waist.

The question I always get after doing a cleanse is “will the weight stay off?”

First of all, now that I’m done I’m putting my scale away for awhile. I only get on my scale when I’m doing a cleanse or following a new fitness program. Second, everyone’s weight fluctuates up and down a few pounds. I don’t use the scale as a measurement of my success. It’s just a tool to show that I’m detoxing my body and losing the bloating that was plaguing me.

But every time I do a cleanse my body has felt fantastic and has stayed the same shape afterwards until I let my eating slide again. Will it go up or down from here? I’m not sure because I don’t plan on being a slave to the scale. The point of this cleanse wasn’t to lose weight but to detox my body and refocus my mind.

What is a Beachbody Coach…WHY NOT YOU?

coaching

Today I received my biggest weekly paycheck to date with Beachbody and I promoted to One Star Diamond Coach. I’m still absolutely blown away that I am doing my dream job, while working from home and helping other people.

Do I share this to brag and boast about how awesome I am? NOPE

I share it because you can do what I’m doing too. Have you ever wondered, WHY NOT ME?

Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse

11061286_10206575132325197_964597928038814212_n

I’m finally done with the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse. This is exactly what I needed to refocus my mind and detox my body.

Results: I lost 5 lbs but didn’t take measurements but I know I lost a couple inches off my waist because all of my bloating is gone.

The question I always get about this cleanse is “will the weight stay off?”

First of all, now that I’m done I’m putting my scale away for awhile. I only get on my scale when I’m doing a cleanse or following a new fitness program. Second, everyone’s weight fluctuates up and down a few pounds. I don’t use the scale as a measurement of my success. It’s just a tool to show that I’m detoxing my body and losing the bloating that was plaguing me.

But every time I’ve done this cleanse my body has felt fantastic and has stayed the same shape afterwards until I let my eating slide again. Will it go up or down from here? I’m not sure because I don’t plan on being a slave to the scale. The point of this cleanse wasn’t to lose weight but to detox my body and refocus my mind.

If you’re interested in doing the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse just send me an email ashleyjoy80@gmail.com . These kits come straight from me and not Beachbody and I’d love to coach you through it!

My story: Before and After

Transformation 3

I remember seeing this family photo after it was taken and cringing. I had a smile on my face but inside I wasn’t happy and I was thankful Phoebe’s head covered my stomach. I was overwhelmed, frustrated, resentful and unsure how to find the time to take care of myself. Before I had Austin I had been running but after having him I didn’t know how to juggle all the chaos.

Day after day I tried not to think about how unhappy I was but eventually I couldn’t take it anymore and I had to do something different. When Austin was almost one I decided it was time for me to put myself back on my priority list. It was time for me to love myself enough to find the time to change. I didn’t take a before picture because I was unhappy with my body. Looking back now I wish I would have taken one so I could see how far I’ve come.

It’s been a long journey, filled with a lot of ups and downs. I’ve had setbacks and injuries but I’ve had so many victories too. I’ve ran countless miles pushing a jogging stroller, done hours and hours of workout DVDs and the best part isn’t that I’m smaller or wear a different size. My victory is in that I’ve found me. I’ve found a passion to help others. I’ve found a career. But more importantly I’ve found that taking care of me helps me take care of others better.

Why do I share all of this? 
Because I understand how it feels to be overwhelmed and unsure of where to start.
Because I know how it feels to be unhappy but stuck at the same time.
Because I know the fear of failure and lack of belief in myself.
Because I know that if I can change my life, so can you.

Because I know I can help you too.

Beachbody’s Military Discount Program

screen-shot-2014-03-13-at-8-25-26-pm

My husband served 23 years in the Air Force and recently retired.  I served along side him for 13.5 of those years and I know what it means to make sacrifices for your family.  The life of my military family was different from a civilian family in so many ways.  The hours a military member works can change often and they can be called away for long deployments.  The only constant in our lives is that there is nothing constant.  Military families soldier on with bravery.  It’s our only choice.

But there are also some great blessings that come from being a military family.  I got to live in two foreign countries and travel to countless others.  My kids have lived in 3 different states and are always up for an adventure. We have great medical care and we don’t have to pay for any of it. I get to shop on base at the commissary and get extra discounts from a lot of other stores too.  A discount doesn’t make up for missing a loved one but it helps us make the most of our military income.

5254135_orig

One of the things I love about Beachbody is that they offer a discount for military coaches – and it’s not a little one that barely covers the tax. It’s 25% – which is $32.50 off your monthly Shakeology order! That’s a pretty big deal, especially in military families where money is normally tight.

Beachbody Supports Veterans and Military Personnel - Free Coaching and 25 percent off Products (2)

screen-shot-2014-03-13-at-8-25-14-pm

Here’s How it Works:

As an active duty military member or the spouse of an active duty military member or a military veteran, you can sign up as a Beachbody “coach” for FREE – your initial sign up fee is waived, as well as the monthly coaching fees. There are no sales requirements and no hidden fees – you can just buy what you want, when you want, for a 25% discount. How much is this worth? Well for a family ordering just one bag of Shakeology a month, you’ll save almost $400 a year.

Then, if you want to, and ONLY IF you want to, you can also build a pretty profitable business as a military coach.

I’ll be honest, that’s what I did – I signed up for the discount. I never intended to coach but really wanted to get my Shakeology at a discount. Then I started to share my love of Shakeology and the fitness programs with others that it just kind of happened.  I wasn’t trying to sell it, I was just telling my friends about something awesome! But then they wanted to buy it, and I was a coach, so why not help them out, right?

44729_833658381920_1191810081_n

I’ve been a coach for over two years and the first 18 months I was a coach but did it as more of a hobby.  I recommended Shakeology and various fitness programs to friends but didn’t pursue a steady business. I did earn a 25% commission off of everything  I sold.  When my husband retired from the Air Force and our income was unstable I decided to really work my business as more than a hobby.   I still earned 25% on anything I sold PLUS I started earning a team cycle bonus for building a team underneath me.  The more I was helping others with their goals the more I was helping my own family financially.

65749_10151424851212739_567210217_n

That was 7 months ago and my income has doubled since then. Military spouses are retiring their husbands on the income they have made with the free coaching opportunity from Beachbody.

screen-shot-2014-03-13-at-8-26-19-pm

The military coaching opportunity has been a HUGE blessing for our family. I’m able to stay at home with my kids, work part time and build a business online that I can help support my family now that my husband is retired. I don’t have to do parties and spend evenings away from my family, in fact, I work primarily when my kids are sleeping. I don’t have to have an inventory of products either.  I have the flexibility to make this business work for me and I’m so thankful for the income it’s providing my family.

Misconceptions on Beachbody Coaching

Facebook Ad 2

A lot of times when you hear about a business opportunity its only natural to think of the downsides.  Sometimes its easy to let the fear creep in and you can talk yourself out of a fantastic opportunity. Below are the objections I normally hear when I talk to someone about becoming a coach.

1. I don’t have money to be a Beachbody Coach.

WHAT?!?  This is a chance to make money, not spend it. The first goal I have when working with a new coach is to help them recoup the cost of their own products.  Then we build from there. I never want you to spend money as a coach.  This is a chance to make money while helping other people.  Coaching has helped me build my savings account, help support my family while my husband transitions out of the Air Force and has given us play money.

2. I’m not a sales person.

Good, neither am I. If you went to a great restaurant and recommended it to others would you be considered a sales person…NO!!!  As a coach, I’m not trying to sell anything.  I’m just sharing products I love with people who are looking for help.  I’m sharing my story and how the products I love have changed my life.  As a Beachbody Coach – you are offering a solution to others problems with a product you love and trust. And in this case, you earn at least a 25% commission when anyone you share with decides to purchase.

3. I’m not a fitness expert.

That’s okay – you don’t have to be an expert. To be successful you just need to have a heart to help others.  Your main job as a Beachbody Coach is to be an accountability partner to others.  You’re their cheerleader as they navigate into a new lifestyle.  You share yourself and encourage everyone you’re working with.  We leave the training to the professionals.  There is a reason the Beachbody fitness programs are so successful, the trainers know what they’re doing.  All the fitness expert stuff comes with the programs.  What’s missing is you, the coach.

4. I don’t have time to be a coach.

While Beachbody is not a get rich quick scheme, it is still not a business that requires a lot of time. Many coaches started while working a demanding full-time job, and many of these same coaches have since left their full-time jobs because they exceeded their full time salary (while only working part-time on their Beachbody business). I am at a point where working 2-4 hours a day, 5 days a week has afforded as much as $1000/month income and growing. I do not regret finding the time to do this and you won’t either.

5. I’m not in good shape. 

Beachbody coaches come in all shapes and sizes.  People join at the beginning of their fitness journey and at the end of it.  There is no requirement to be “in shape”. People love to follow others who are on their journey. It makes them approachable.

6. Beachbody is a pyramid scheme.

This is the biggest misconception about Beachbody Coaching that I come across. Everyone wants to complain about pyramid schemes – except few people actually know what they really are. A pyramid scheme is an illegal business model that requires people to pay money to join and there is no actual product. Beachbody is a network marketing company, which is a business model that has been in existence for many decades. If you’d like more information on Pyramid Schemes vs Beachbody, let met know.  Network marketing is a legitimate business model that many companies follow.

7. I need prior business experience

I didn’t have any business experience when I started.  While this business is a business and you need to be committed to it, you don’t need actual experience. The main thing you do as a coach is share your experiences with others. Beachbody spends millions of dollars each year on advertising, which makes the products a household name. Everyone has heard of P90X! You don’t have to handle any of the orders pr processing – this is all done for you. I didn’t have any experience when I started either but with the help of my coach and the training Beachbody offers, I was able to make a successful business for myself.

8. But my friend did network marketing and it didn’t work.

A lot of people start in networking marketing and expect instant results with little work. When they don’t get rich quick, they quit.  Quitting isn’t how you succeed at anything.  The best way to succeed is to give consistent effort for at least one year.  Success doesn’t happen overnight but the ones that stick with it have success and make a great income at it.  You can’t sign up, do nothing and expect money to fall into your lap.  You have to sign up with a good mentor, do your training and stay consistent. When you have the right training, mentorship and personal development…amazing things can happen in your business.

I hope I have answered some of the main misconceptions that come with Beachbody Coaching.  If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact me.  I’d love to make sure you have all the answers you need before getting started.

Insanity Max:30 Sweat Intervals

Workout Wednesday: Insanity Max:30 Sweat Intervals

This workout is no joke! It left me gasping for air in the warm up and I didn’t catch my breath until I was done. There are 30 second breaks every 4:30-5:00 minutes and that’s just enough time for me to regroup and push harder for the next interval.

The best part about it is I’m pushing myself to my max and when I need to stop and rest, I record my time and the next time I do this workout I will try to get further. I’m my own competition and I love the challenge! Today ‪#‎IMAXEDOUT‬ at 13:30. 

I’ll be starting a Max group in January if you’re up for the challenge! Just go here for more information on my next challenge group.
