Beachbody Coach Compensation Plan

Beachbody Coach Compensation Plan
Beachbody Coach Rank I wanted to make a post that easily shows you what the Beachbody Coach rank and compensation plan looks like and what you need in your organization to achieve each desired level.  Every one begins at ground level as a coach.  You then become an “active” coach when you have a total of 50 pv (personal volume) for the week.  This PV comes from either your customers’ orders AND/OR your own.  This will keep you ‘active’ for a rolling 5 week period.  You do not need to be ‘active’ in order to run your business and make commission, although you...

One Decision
Make One Decision-Choose Your Own Adventure! Did you ever read one of those ‘Choose your own Adventure’ books when you were a kid? You read to the end of the section, then ‘choose’ what will happen next by flipping to a certain page. One decision changes the entire story. They were pretty cool-made me feel powerful. Funny thing is that life is like that. Every decision you make, even the decision NOT to make a decision, will change the course of the future that might have been. Think about that. The problem is that as we get older some of us feel less and less in... Read More

Easy and Delicious Clean Eating Mayonnaise
Clean Eating Mayonnaise I recently embarked on an epic nutritional adventure with the legendary Sagi Kalev.  As part of the process, he has given me a short (and I mean SHORT) list of acceptable foods to use in my meal plan for the time being.  This was a scary proposition at first, as many of the foods -and ESPECIALLY herbs and spices-I was unfamiliar with using on a regular basis.  I feared I would have to resort to nothing but unseasoned chicken and spinach at each and every meal.  The GREAT news is, that having that short list really forced me to get out of my comfort zone and start...

Quick Salmon and Quinoa Recipe
Quick Salmon and Quinoa Recipe I don’t know about you, but TIME is really my biggest obstacle to staying on track with healthy eating.  Sure, we all know we SHOULD have nice, wholesome homecooked meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but who has the time?! Fast food vendors came along to help ease our overbooked schedules, but we all know by now that relying on that not only results in a smaller wallet, but a bigger waistline and poorer health.  So today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite healthy, homecooked, ‘fast food’ options: Quick Salmon and Quinoa...

Gluten Free Spice Cookies
Gluten Free Spice Cookies I don’t have Celiac disease and am not necessarily gluten intolerant.  However, I have noticed that wheat tends to creep it’s way into far more foods than you might imagine and too much of anything is, well, not a good thing.  So why not experiment with some alternative flours to bring a little variety into your diet?  This recipe is a Gluten Free Spice Cookie recipe that can also be made vegan with the exclusion of the egg and fat free with the oil variation (see recipe). For even greater variation, I made the base dough and then divided it in half and... Read More

Flat Tummy Success After Babies from C-Sections Christina has had two babies delivered from C-Section.  She had had some success losing her baby weight with cardio based programs, but it was when she started to incorporate a weight training system and Shakeology to fill nutritional gaps that she really got the results she’d been after.   Christina’s Story When my 4-year-old daughter looked at me and said, “Mommy, why do you have such a big, fat belly?”  I knew it was time to change.  I’d had both of my kids from C-sections, but didn’t want to use that as an excuse.  I...

Thyroid and Hormone Imbalance

Thyroid and Hormone Imbalance
How I overcame Thyroid and Hormone Imbalance At the low point of my battle with my thyroid hormone imbalance, I got connected with a guy named Sam Visnic out of Santa Monica. He is the one that insisted I get tested for thyroid even though my doctor kept telling me it was ‘impossible’. Turns out it wasn’t ‘impossible’, as it was definitely off, and I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease. My symptoms at the time were insomnia, irregular menstrual cycles, extreme mood swings, exhaustion, brain fog (the worst), depression and lethargy.... Read More

Cheat vs. Treat
So It’s ok to Cheat?! A cheat, by definition and connotation, is just a bad thing to do.  But we hear the phrase ‘cheat meal’ or ‘cheat day’ all the time in health and fitness circles.  This article from Tosca Reno, author of The Eat Clean Diet will help explain why a ‘cheat’ is still a bad thing, until you give it a new name….TREAT. “Eating Clean is a lifestyle choice, which means you adapt it to fit your life. If you must have birthday cake, then have it.

Skipping Meals to Lose Weight

Skipping Meals to Lose Weight
Is Skipping Meals a Good Idea? We’ve all been taught that in order to lose weight, we have to reduce our calories, and many people try to accomplish this by skipping meals.  It seems like a good idea up front…it’s easy to do, just rush out of the house and skip breakfast or work straight through lunch.  However, while you might see a few pounds fall off right at the start, by skipping meals you are setting yourself up for a tremendous problem in your near future.  So, to answer the question….skipping meals is definitely NOT a good idea.

Cheat Meal, Cheat Day, Refeed…Is it important?
Why you shouldn’t cheat your cheat meal! You may have heard the term ‘cheat meal’, ‘cheat day’ or ‘refeed’.  While the term you choose to use is not important (well, maybe it actually is…more on that later), the thing itself definitely is.  “Cheating is good?” you ask?  Under normal circumstances no, you should never cheat on a test or a spouse of course! But when you are ‘dieting’ or restricting your calories to achieve weight/fat loss, the use of a ‘cheat’ can be vitally important! Why a cheat meal is... Read More

What is Clean Eating?

What is Clean Eating?
Clean Eating is What?! I get a lot of confused looks when I mention Clean Eating to people.  I can just imagine what’s going through their heads…”she wants me to wash my food?  Perhaps spray on some kind of cleaner-like windex??”  No, not at all! Clean Eating is simply the idea of eating food that is in it’s original, natural form-unprocessed or very minimally processed.  What does ‘processed’ mean?  The definition varies slightly, but it’s generally any food that has artificial ingredients and generally comes in a package, box or bag.  The...

Some days, surviving a tough workout is the best you can do…but hey, if you survived it, you made it through and THAT’S what counts!  It never ceases to amaze me how you might have done the same workout any number of times, and then one day, out of the blue, that workout that used to be one of your ‘easy’ ones becomes suddenly hard.  Why is that?  It might be any number of things.  It could be that you are really torn down from a workout the day before, it might be that you haven’t been getting enough calories to fuel your workout, or maybe, and this is the best...

Ed-Beachbody Challenge Winner and P90X/Insanity Weight Loss Success Story
Before losing 92 lbs. with P90X, INSANITY, and Asylum Vol 1, I was disgusted with myself, and had been my whole life. I can’t even recall the number of times I tried losing weight, but nothing ever worked—I was still the fat kid. Failing to achieve my goals would depress the heck out of me and I’d fall back into my bad habits, and there were many. Sadly, it took getting a DUI at 22 for me hit rock bottom and finally decide that enough was enough! I was tired of being fat. I was tired of being depressed. And I was tired of being unhealthy. To lose all that weight, I spent 9 months busting my... Read More

Bethany-Beachbody Challenge and Shakeology Success Story
When I started doing a TurboKick class, two awesome things happened. I found out that I loved TurboKick, and my instructor—and Team Beachbody Coach—introduced me to Shakeology when she gave me a packet to try. I loved it so much, I went onto her site and ordered a 30-day supply immediately. That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. Before Shakeology, I’d TRY to eat healthier, but I always ended up eating a few large meals a day and never really sticking to a diet plan. As a nursing student with two jobs, I felt like fast food was the only thing I had time for. But... Read More
