Helping People Get Fit…Share Your Passion for Fitness!

As an Independent Beachbody Coach, one of the most common themes that I have come across in my conversations with people online and in person is that most people think that they should be experts at fitness and health before they start helping other people get in shape…or at least that they should be in REALLY good shape themselves. This is especially true when people talk about becoming a Beachbody Coach. I completely understand the thought process behind this and don’t necessarily blame anyone for feeling that way. However, I completely disagree with the concept!

Good information from reliable sources (including Beachbody) on how to get in shape and how to eat is already readily available and easy to follow (I don’t necessarily mean “easy to accomplish”)…whether you use a Beachbody program like Power 90, P90X, Turbo Jam, etc. or you just go to the gym and lift weights and hit the treadmill…the programs are out there and documented. I am not talking about crazy diets and magic pills…I am just talking about the standard model of eat healthy and exercise. Now, I realize that one program or eating plan doesn’t fit all but in general most people realize that they have to eat healthy and exercise to get in shape and they don’t need you to explain every little detail of how to do that…what they need is the encouragement and accountability to actually accomplish the plan and actually get in shape. That is something that you can provide whether you look like Tony Horton or not…all you need is a passion for fitness and a desire to spread that passion.

You don’t have to know everything about fitness…no one does. Everyone that has a passion for fitness is still learning and does not have the answer to every question…even Tony Horton or elite athletes or elite athletic coaches…nobody knows everything about fitness.

If you love the Beachbody programs like I do (P90X, Insanity, etc), you are probably already telling people about them and recommending them to people, right? Why are you doing that? Is it because you have a passion for fitness and because you want to share that passion? Well, that is all I do as a Beachbody Coach. I don’t know everything about every program, I don’t have every answer about nutrition, I don’t know the answer to every fitness question, and I don’t even have a six pack (yet!)…but I have a passion to help people find the answers to their questions and see them reach their goals. As a coach, I have resources through Beachbody such as message boards where people can go to find answers, an online gym where people can log their workouts with buddies for accountability, and a wealth of information on health and fitness. All you have to do is point people in the right direction and encourage them. You can share tips that you have learned through your fitness journey but you don’t have to know everything.

I am not saying that you should go out there and start giving people fitness advice that you are not qualified to give…what I am saying is that you can share your passion, share tips, give encouragement, and point people in the direction of the information that you have available to you. People will thank you for it and, as an added bonus, you have the potential to make good money in the process as a Beachbody Coach. I don’t know what more I could ask for than to be able to share my passion with people, watch as they make progress and reach their goals, get encouragement back and thanks from those same people, and then get paid for it too! It is an amazing opportunity!

    I want to do something to help people get fit, I’m not certified and I’m far from perfectly fit, but I’m excited to keep on exercising and want to help others. We’re can I start?
