Hey Everyone

Welcome to 2014! Happy New Year to all of you. I hope you all behaved yourselves last night.

With a New Year, comes yet another chance to reflect on where you currently stand, and where you are headed. This is true, not only for our careers and our education, but our health and lifestyles as well.

It is no secret that this is a popular time of year for people to make resolutions to improve their overall health. Luckily for all of you, being a part of this team, and this company (Beachbody), we have a lot of resources at your disposal to not only set goals for yourself, but to get the motivation and support to get there.

Beyond being a Beachbody Coach, I want to remind all of you that I am also a personal trainer, who has helped men and women of all ages reach their goals time and time again. I enjoy helping people lead healthier lifestyles and give them the tools to reach their goals, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions/comments/concerns you may have.

This week's topics of interest:

1. Both the P90X3 and Focus T25 Challenge Packs are on sale during the month of January. Both are $180 (over $90 in savings). Links should be live tomorrow (January 2nd). E-mail me if you are interested in either one. Challenge Packs offer tremendous value, not to mention getting Shakeology into your diet to start the year off right!

2. Speaking of Shakeology. There are 3 supplements that I take, that if someone asks me my go-to supplements, these are the 3. Creatine, Whey Protein, and Shakeology. That is what I base my entire diet around. Shakeology is my "insurance plan" for those days when I may not have gotten all of my fruits and vegetable servings in, I know it is backing me up. Remember that Shakeology comes with a "Bottom of the bag guarantee," so even if you aren't a fan, or don't feel as though it made any difference in your life during your 30 servings, you can return it for a full refund! How many products back up their reputation like that? Do yourself a favour and give Shakeology a shot. Start the year off with just 1 bag. Give it an honest try for 30 days, with regular exercise, and let me know how you feel after you're done. Make sure to order on "Home Direct" to get free shipping, you can cancel at ANY time, no penalties.

3. I just finished my 2nd week of P90X3, you can check out my progress video here.

4. I have completed my complete in-depth written reviews for P90X3 Total Synergistics and P90X3 Agility X.

5. If any of you have been thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach and helping others, trust me when I tell you that NOW is the time to do it. This time of year, is of course, the busiest time of year for people to make and aim for goals that they set for themselves. As a Beachbody Coach, you have the opportunity to help others by providing them with solutions to problems faced by so many. Join our team and get plugged into my January 6th Coach Basics Training.

Hey Everybody

Wow, what an opening day for P90X3 yesterday! I know for a fact that the Team Beachbody website is still reeling after the amount of traffic it saw yesterday. Things should be better today for those of you who had troubles ordering yesterday. The initial rush should be slowed down now, although there is still going to be a HUGE demand in the coming days/weeks/months!

I want to personally thank all of you who not only purchased (or are going to purchase) P90X3 through me, but any other purchases you make through me as well. That is how I make a small return for the hard work I put forth helping all of you stay motivated, accountable, and in my mind, the most important part (and one fact that a LOT of Coaches miss) - educated on everything health and fitness!

With the holiday season underway, or almost underway, we now start to look ahead to the New Year and the goals/improvements we all wish to make. I know for a fact that I am going to be chomping at the bit to get going with X3, so I will more than likely start it as soon as it arrives - hopefully no later than December 22nd. Yes, for those of you asking, I will be doing LOTS of video updates along the way.

Let's cover this week's topics:

1. If you tried to order P90X3 yesterday and were bogged down by the website, make sure you try again today. There should be a lot less traffic now that the original rush is slowing. Please remember, if you did NOT receive a confirmation order and e-mail at the end of your purchase yesterday then your order probably did not go through. If you are uncertain, let me know and I will check my records to see if your order went through. Here are your P90X3 purchasing options.

2. Make sure you check out all of the latest news about P90X3. Yesterday I added the various training schedules as well as the workout sheets - a good idea of what you're in for!

3. If you are still mulling over what P90X3 option to get, let me convince you on how great of a deal the P90X3 Challenge Pack is. You get the Base Kit, your first month of Shakeology, a free 30-day trial membership to a Club Membership as well as the option to upgrade to Coach status for free ($39.95 value). For those of you interested in not only that, but also joining my 60-Day Coach Training Academy, let me know as my next class starts on Monday January 6th 2014. It is a great way to learn the ins and outs of the business and hit the ground running.

4. If you haven't already, make sure you check out our P90X3 Challenge Group. This one will be rockin' with excitement/motivation in the coming weeks as everyone gets their copy of X3 and gets ready to do battle. We're currently sitting at 25 members strong!

5. One of the best reads about Crossfit you will find!

Hey Team

Welcome to November! With the holiday season right around the corner, you basically have two choices right now. First, and the option I highly recommend AGAINST, is to "write off" the rest of the year, eat like a pig, and wait until the gyms fill up for the first week or two in January to finally get off your ass and get moving.

OR, you could put a plan into motion NOW to get fit, change your diet, and be well into your new lifestyle before 2014 even starts! Wouldn't it be great to see family over the holidays and everyone notice how much you've changed? I don't just mean losing weight, by the way. Sure, that is a nice side effect of healthy eating/exercise for some of you. Instead, think of how great you will feel! People walk differently, their postures improve, and they just overall feel much better in their own skin when they eat well and stay active. That is called confidence. Makes you feel like a million bucks. Luckily, we have solutions for everybody!

Lots to cover this week. Sorry if some of this is repetitive to some of you, but we have lots of new team members this week, so I want to make sure everyone is caught up with everything going on right now!

1. If you haven't already, make sure to check out our Facebook accountability group Team Fitness for Life. We have an amazing group of individuals keeping each other motivated/inspired to keep active and eating well.

2. Helpouts by Google launched yesterday (November 5th). I have already helped a man from Lebanon and another from California with some health and fitness questions. This is a remarkable opportunity for me, and I am really excited to see what sort of opportunities await!

3. My first ever 60-Day Coach training program got underway this past Monday. The group is already doing really well and showing great initiative. I just know that the 60 days' worth of training will benefit them all, not just with their businesses, but in other aspects in life too. I am already looking ahead to start the next group on Monday December 2nd. If you have ever thought about Beachbody Coaching and are possibly interested in signing up, please let me know so we can discuss. I am open to having video chats with anyone interested, so that you can have a one on one, face to face with me and get my honest opinion about the opportunity!

4. Don't forget, P90X3 launches on December 10th! If you order by December 15th, then you are guaranteed to have it by Christmas. Even better than that, you can join my P90X3 Challenge Group and progress through the program with a group of us. Even though we all like to workout in the privacy of our own homes, research has shown that a lot of people thrive in a group workout setting. Being a part of our Challenge Group on Facebook, gives you that group mentality, which can be incredibly encouraging and motivating!

5. I have sent quite a few free Shakeology samples out lately. If you are one of those people and would like to order, but are unsure of what flavour would be best for you, remember that there are more Shakeology options available, including a "Shakeology Taste Sampler." (Limit one per customer) You get 4 Shakeology samples - 2 chocolate, 1 green berry, 1 vanilla. It is a great way to pick your favourite before ordering a full 30-day supply.

6. On Mondays to Fridays, at 8pm, I am posting links on my Facebook page to some of my favourite and most popular blogs from the archive. Here are the posts from the past week:

Enjoy the Journey (Because you can!)
 
Meal Timing
 
Tyler's Book Club
 
Go Fast and Then Go Home
 
Is 'Junk Food' really cheaper than 'Healthy Food'?
 
Genetics Count

7. Blogs from this past week:

Illegal Downloads
 
Tony Horton's One on One Road Warrior Modifications
 
"Friends don't let friends skip leg day!"

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my blogs and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!

Hey Everybody!

Well some very exciting personal news to get out of the way right off the bat! My wife had her second ultrasound this morning. The baby is healthy, which is awesome news! We also found out that we are having another boy! I better keep working out the way I am so that I can keep up with my 2 sons...holy smokes!

We are almost into November. Are you planning on finishing your year strong, or just limp towards the finish line as we head into 2014? Why do so many people think that they can just coast at this time of year and just "start fresh" in January? I can tell you right now, from my experiences with "Coaching" and personal training, the people who need a specific date to start something (i.e. January 1st) NEVER reach their goals. Your body and your health don't know what day it is, besides the fact that you just keep getting older. Stop procrastinating and get to it NOW.

Enough of the serious talk ;-)

Lots of exciting things to cover this week:

1. I have already had an amazing amount of interest for my 60-Day Coach Basics Training program, starting on November 4th. I have been hard at work taking the training material passed down to me from some of the top Coaches at Beachbody, including 2011 and 2012 TOP COACH, and my personal Coach, Wayne Wyatt, and organizing it into a comprehensive 60-Day training program. I have also been modifying some of the topics and adding my own input based on what I have had success with as a Coach. You will not only learn how to start and run your business, but also other nuances like making YouTube videos, websites, blogs, etc. I have all sorts of tips and advice to pass down to my team. So, if you have been considering becoming a Beachbody Coach, now is the time to do it, as you can hit the ground running with this training program. Let me know if you're interested.

2. I had another video chat with Google the other day, getting my "Helpouts from Google" listing all set up. This sounds like it's going to be a remarkable opportunity. I will be able to give folks help with their health and fitness problems via video chat for a small fee. What's nice about all of this, is that all of you get to pick my brain and get advice whenever you want since I am your Beachbody Coach. That will not change! In case you still don't know what Google Helpouts is all about, head on over to my blog about the opportunity, including Google's official trailer detailing the program (expected to launch first week of November).

3. Just over a week left to take advantage of Beachbody's October promotions - P90X and P90X2 Challenge Packs on sale for just $180, which is over $90 in savings. Remember, if you have been thinking about becoming a Coach and partaking in my 60-Day training course, any customer who purchases as Challenge Pack has the option of upgrading to "Coach" status for free!

4. Make sure to check out the latest course in P90X University. A comprehensive breakdown of Chest & Back.

5. We are already sitting at 19 members for my P90X3 Challenge Group! If you are at all interested in starting 2014 off with the latest program from Tony Horton himself, join us!

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my blogs and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!

Hey Everyone

Welcome to October! A new month always brings exciting new opportunities, and with just a few months left in the year, it is also time to start planning ahead to the New Year. Lots of new, exciting, but also some disappointing news from me today.

First off, let me get the disappointing news out of the way first. I am withdrawing from the World's Toughest Mudder. For those of you who have been following me will know, I have a heart condition known as "Atrial Flutter." To make a long story short, I have been cleared for exercise, but certain types of training seem to be causing my symptoms to flare up, and I really don't think I am physically able, nor is it safe, to continue on with my training and competing at such a rigorous event. This is disappointing for me, but at the same time, health always comes first, and I am focusing on getting the required treatment so that I can make plans to compete again in the future.

For those interested, I am currently planning out my next training blocks. I plan on doing a Body Beast/One on One Hybrid that will focus on a bit of mass gaining, but also strength improvements. There will also be some performance goals there as well since I am now back playing hockey.

Now on to the exciting pieces of info from the past week:

1. Beachbody has announced their October promotions. During the month of October, you can get P90X or P90X2 Challenge Packs for just $180. That saves you over $90! Even if you already own X and/or X2, this is a great opportunity to save some money and pick up a copy of the program for a friend/family member, and you could keep the Shakeology for yourself.

2. Beachbody now offers 2 new purchasing options for Shakeology. First, you can get a taste sampler, where you will receive a single servings of the following flavours - 2 chocolate, 1 vanilla, 1 greenberry. Keep in mind that these are limited to 1 per taste sampler per customer. For those of you who have been asking for it, you can now order chocolate/vanilla combo packs so that you can keep some variety with your healthiest meal of the day!

3. New P90X3 details!

4. I am going to be running a P90X3 Challenge Group to kick off the New Year! P90X3 is available for order on December 10th. If you order before December 15th, Beachbody guarantees that you will get it by Christmas. Take a few days off for the holiday season, and then join an already-growing group of us to start the program sometime between December 29th and January 11th!

Hey Everybody

Welcome to the last day of July! Not only are we well past the half-way point of the year, but we are also heading into month 8. Considering I am heading to World's Toughest Mudder on November 16th, I better get training ;-)

Speaking of which, I am still in my off week prior to jumping into my training, which starts this Sunday August 4th. I was originally planning on starting Monday, but I have a wedding to attend on the 16th, so my schedule just lines up better if I start Sunday. Not only that, but this week off is going well. So well, in fact, that I am already getting that itch to get back to training!

This week's topics of interest:

1. If you are reading this on Wednesday July 31st, then today is your LAST day to take advantage of Beachbody's Focus T25 Challenge Pack sale. You can pick up the Challenge Pack for an all-time low price of $180, which is over $90 in savings. Get it today before it goes back up to its original price of $220!

2. If you are still looking for an accountability group, make sure to stop by and join our Team Fitness for Life group. For those of you who are already in the group, but don't post regularly, make sure to jump in and join the conversation. It is incredibly motivating and inspiring to keep pressing play.

3. Just the other day I announced the launch of my on-location personal training options on my website. There are 2 options to choose from if you live in Southern Ontario. First, I have Standard Personal Training Services for individuals or groupsSecondly, if you are interested in "test driving" a Beachbody product, then I can come to your home or business and lead you through a Beachbody workout, helping correct you for form and ensure that you get the most out of your workout.

How much money can you make as a Beachbody Coach?

I get this question often enough, especially from folks who are interested in potentially becoming a Coach. So how much money do I make, and how much money do Beachbody Coaches make? 

I will start off discussing my personal experiences as a Coach and then go on to discuss stats surrounding everyone else. First of all, I am not  going to give any monetary figures in this blog. One, I don't wish to come off as 'bragging'. And two, it's not really anyone's business, so there!

I want to also start off by saying that I have been like an "unofficial" Beachbody Coach for years now. For those of you who have been following my YouTube channel and blog know, I have been blogging and video blogging everything Beachbody and health and fitness-related for years. I have been an athlete my entire life, I love to be active, and I love the science behind everything health and science related.

Becoming a Beachbody Coach (when it was finally made available to us Canadians) was a no-brainer for me as I knew this would be just another outlet for me to help others lead healthy lives. I like to think that I have always been honest with my reviews, and I know for a fact that my blogs have helped so many stay informed, so as cliched and as corny as it sounds, that is very fulfilling for me. If you don't believe me, go and look back all of the blogs and videos I made prior to signing up as a Coach on October 1st 2012. I was connecting and helping others online for years prior to even becoming a Coach!

Beachbody Coaching is certainly not  a "get rich quick" scheme. I know many hear the phrase "pyramid scheme" and run for the hills, but I will say that anyone  has an opportunity to make a sustainable earning. Whether that is a part-time earning or a full-time earning is strictly up to each individual!

I know I have heard lots of folks commenting on the fact that the Beachbody Coach market is so diluted and diverse already, what is the point of becoming a Coach as there is no real way of making it profitable. This couldn't be further from the truth! At the time I am writing this blog, there are roughly 120,000 Beachbody Coaches in North America. There is over 500 million people in North America, not to mention the fact that I have heard that the Coaching opportunity is aiming to expand to the UK and Europe in the future (possibly sooner rather than later!)

I am not yet at the point where I can make Beachbody a full-time career, and it may never reach that point, but as I said earlier, I enjoy doing what I do (helping others) so I will continue to do what I do, so I might as well be a Coach and earn a bit of money on the side.

From the money I earn as a Coach (I have been a Coach for just under 10 months at the time I am writing this blog) I am able to put my earnings towards: 

  • No longer having to pay for any Beachbody programs I want
  • I no longer have to pay for my Shakeology
  • I have purchased new fitness equipment (dumbbells, squat rack, weight plates) 
  • I am currently in the process of re-modeling my basement and home gym
  • I pay for athletic events that I enjoy competing in (Tough Mudder, World's Toughest Mudder

When I attended the Beachbody Coach Summit, it was incredibly inspiring to see a parade of Coaches being honoured on stage due to their "financial freedom" from their full-time jobs, their debt, their mortgages, etc. The reality of the matter is that a lot of Coaches may never reach that point, but the opportunity is there to earn as much as you wish! 

This is not a plea to grow my team, because to be perfectly honest with you, as a Beachbody Coach, I technically earn more direct commission from regular paying customers than I do from Coaches on my team, but just like helping others achieve their health and fitness goals, I enjoy creating a team of like-minded individuals who wish to make an earning (at any level) by helping others. 

Statistics & Rank – Beachbody Coach Income

How many Coaches are there? – Currently there are almost 120,000 coaches within Team Beachbody. A lot of the people who sign up do so to become what is known as a "discount Coach" to get a discount on their regular purchases, like Shakeology. This is a perfectly viable option for a lot of folks who find themselves purchasing Beachbody products on a consistent basis since you get a 25% discount on all Beachbody products. Other people put in the time and effort into building a home business while helping others reach their health and fitness goals.

Does Beachbody pay ALL Coaches a commission? – The answer is no. Not all Beachbody Coaches make a commission. Like I said, some only become a Coach for the discount. Roughly 32% of those who sign up to be a Coach never receive a commission from Beachbody. That means that 68% of Coaches have chosen to use the opportunity to grow a business.

The best part about this the Beachbody Coach income is that when you help others succeed, you succeed as well. Its the same philosophy with the workouts as well.

Now for the part you have been waiting for…

How Much Money Do Beachbody Coaches Make? – Beachbody Coach Income

Here is the breakdown of Beachbody Coach Income based on the 2012 Team Beachbody financials:

Emerald Rank = Avg. Yearly Earnings: $3,353 High: $261,621

Ruby Rank  = Avg. Yearly Earnings: $11,011  High: $62,840

Diamond Rank = Avg. Yearly Earnings: $14,658. High: $143,284
