What is Coaching?
To answer the question, “What is coaching?” we will discuss our journey from challengers to coaches.
From Teri: I have always been a pretty fit person. Having been involved in sports at a young age, it has become a way of life. As my family grew and life started to get busier, time for “me” was often put on hold. Finding balance has always been hard. After having three babies, I have strived to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (going on 10 years now!). I started to run and trained for a couple of half marathons.
I enjoyed the challenge, understood what that “runners high” was all about, and loved the solitude of it all. But it frustrated me that even though I was putting in all this time running (and believe me finding an hour or more was TOUGH) I just couldn’t lose those last 10-15 pounds.
My husband and I decided to allot fitness time for ourselves this past fall after my good friend asked me to join one of her challenge groups. And so our journey with T25 and Shakeology began.
Even though my husband was not a part of the online group, he did the entire program alongside me. I shared all of the great nutrition posts and tips with him that I was getting from my support team daily. And together we started to make some lifestyle changes.
The lessons in clean eating were eye-opening; the workouts were short but tough, and we could do them in the comfort of our home. My husband and I both lost weight, gained energy, and strengthened muscles we didn’t even know existed! The Beachbody Challenge group was a perfect fit.
The fitness and nutrition discipline habits have re-shaped our “normal.” And although I have not yet hit my target weight, I feel better than I have in YEARS. Healthier. Stronger. Happier. I fell so in love with the whole experience that I decided to become a Beachbody Coach myself.
I am amazed at how rewarding it has been in the short time I have been on board. I have seen lives change for the better: lives of close friends, lives of friends whom I haven’t seen in over 20 years, and lives of complete strangers who I now consider friends. It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of people’s journeys when they decide to take control of their health. I love being back on a “team” with my fellow coaches who form a network of knowledge, support, and encouragement.
Additionally, this new opportunity has also allowed me to add to our family’s finances. Bonus! I am so thankful this opportunity was put before me. It just took some courage to leap, but I am truly thankful that I did! I hadn’t ever envisioned me doing something like this…and now I can’t imagine my life without it.
From Dan: Our stories run parallel, though I didn’t gain baby weight from the birth of our children. I ran a lot–still do. But the challenge group that we were a part of (I was pretty much reading over her shoulder and then working out with her) added different components to my fitness.
To complement fitness, there was a sense of “team,” a sense of “community.” As a teacher and coach, I found Beachbody coaching to be a natural extension of what I do–helping others maximize who and what they can be on their health and fitness journeys; I wanted in on this coaching thing too. Connection, community, accountability, health, and fitness are the driving forces behind challenge groups, and I want as many people as possible to realize the amazing experiences these opportunities provide.
My wife has developed an amazing group of coaches on her Revolutionizer’s team. If you have any interest in the job I recommend you read this blog article. It gives you sneak peek into what her role as a coach entails and the freedom that comes with it: She loves her job. Is it for you?
Look at the sampling of beautiful women on our Revolutionizers team in the photo below! We span from coast to coast but we all came into this business for the same reasons. We have a passion for helping others become better versions of themselves. We are motivated by a quote from Andy Stanley, “Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone.” Come listen in on how we work together and what this business has done for us in our upcoming 3 Day “Sneak Peek Into Coaching” online class!
