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!

This week's blogs:

Neural Adaptations and more - What does this mean for you?
John's Awesome Body Beast Results

From the blog archive:

Tough Mudder Tactics: Mud Mile
Introduction to the Glycemic Index
Tough Mudder Tactics: Spider's Web

And 2 favors that I ask:

Hey Everybody

Well, we are less than a week away from the release of P90X3!!! I hope you are all as excited about this as I am. Lots of information coming out about the program these past few days, and I have been doing my best to collect all of the information into one spot for you all to learn all there is to know about the program. So, without further ado, here are this week's topics of interest:

1. All the latest information about P90X3

2. If you're interested in P90X3, make sure you join my P90X3 Challenge Group. It is a great way to stay motivated and accountable as you make your way through the program with a group of us!

3. My next 60-Day Coach Training Academy starts on Monday January 6th. If you are at all interested in Coaching, I am willing to arrange a video chat discussion with you to discuss the opportunity. Keep in mind that anyone who purchases a Challenge Pack has the option to upgrade to Coach status for free ($39.95 sign-up fee is waived), so if you are interested in the P90X3 Challenge Pack when it goes on sale on the 10th, this would be a great opportunity to sign up as a Coach and hit the ground running with your business!

Hey Everybody!

I love this time of year. My birthday is coming up (Monday November 25th), the holiday season is right around the corner, my son's birthday is on December 6th, my wife's birthday is on December 16th, the air is colder, etc. I just love winding down the year with holiday traditions and spending time with family and friends. We may or may not also be one of those crazy families that already has their Christmas decorations up...I am a big kid, so be it!

This time of year tends to be a major motivation-suck for so many people though, especially when it comes to health and fitness. I know for a fact that I have the next few weeks already planned out in my training, but not everyone is the same.

Admit it, you will be eating those extra treats and skipping your workouts more often than not during this time of year. If you are, not all is lost, however, as there are tools to help you get back on track at the start of the year, including my P90X3 Challenge Group. If P90X3 isn't your thing, make sure to plug into my Team Fitness for Life Challenge Group. There, we have a huge group of dedicated folks pushing play, staying active, and motivating each other regardless of their program or current fitness level.

Topics of interest this week:

1. A real quick update on P90X3. Tony posted a short video giving you a little glimpse into "Agility."

2. Beachbody has overhauled the Shakeology website and will launching it this Thursday November 21st. Make sure to check it out! I have seen it already and it's awesome!

3. My next 60-Day Coach training academy starts on Monday December 2nd. The timing of this course will be perfect, because it will allow you to gain the basics of Coaching before not only P90X3 launches, but also prior to the "New Year's Rush" of people looking to make a change. If, however, the month of December is too scattered for you, I will more than likely be starting another Coach course on Monday January 6th. Let me know if you're interested. I am even open to video chat with any interested participants looking for more information into this incredible opportunity!

4. Make sure you check out one of my latest blogs from one of my Coaches (Brenda Merritt). Brenda broke down her own cost analysis as to what she spent on working out at home over the past seven years, and compared it to what she would have spent if she had been paying for a gym membership. The savings are pretty remarkable...

Blogs this week:

Home Workout Cost Analysis

Nutrient Timing for Resistance Exercise Part 1
Nutrient Timing for Resistance Exercise Part 2

Hey Everybody

We are now less than a month away from the launch of P90X3! The holidays are also right around the corner, which also means the start of a New Year! Without further ado, let's get right into this week's topics of interest:

1. As mentioned above, P90X3 launches in less than a month - orders start on December 10th. Remember that if you order before December 15th, Beachbody will have it in your hands by Christmas. If you are interested in doing the program yourself, and want the motivation of a Challenge Group, join us here.

2. A real quick heads-up. My next Beachbody Coach Training is slated to begin on Monday December 2nd. I have had a ton of interest for this training already, and am already starting to plan ahead for yet another group to start on Monday January 6th, so if either of these dates sound appealing to you, let me know. December is a good time to start because you will already have a month's worth of training under your belt prior to the health and fitness rush at the beginning of the year. On the other hand, if you wish to start 2014 off with an exciting new business opportunity, then that option is open too.

3. Here is a good laugh for you (in case you missed it from Facebook). I am sure this is what people think of when I tell them I workout at home...

4. Great article from Men's Health Magazine - 4 Exercises Trainers Hate.

5. Another great article, this time from the Business Insider - 9 Lies About Fat that Destroyed the World's Health.

6. This week's blogs:

The best time to workout is?...
INVESTING in your health!
"But what do you do for cardio?"

7. And from the blog archive:

Build Muscle, Lower Body Fat
Pull-ups/Lat Pull-downs Hand Positions
Resistance Training for Runners
Sign of Overtraining
My Thoughts on Crossfit

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

Is 'Junk Food' really cheaper than 'Healthy Food'?
 
Genetics Count

7. Blogs from this past week:

Hey Everybody

Holy smokes this year has been flying by...November starts on Friday! I hope you are all doing your best at staying away from the Halloween candy...or at the very least, limiting yourself to just a few treats.

Remember that from about this point, on, people tend to let things "slide" at the end of the year. And by slide, I mean all of that junk food and drink slide down their throats. From Canadian Thanksgiving in October, Halloween, American Thanksgiving in November, right on through holiday and Christmas parties throughout November and December, and of course Christmas/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah (and any other holidays) and New Year's. The very least you could do for yourself during this time of year with all of the indulgences, would be to consistently exercise and get as much nutrition into you as possible (Shakeology anyone?) beyond all of the junk you will be consuming.

Anyways, with November right around the corner, there are also lots of exciting things to discuss, so let's get to it!

1. You have until midnight on October 31st to take advantage of Beachbody's Current Promotions. Over $90 off both the P90X and P90X2 Challenge Packs. With the holidays just around the corner, even if you already have P90X and/or X2, you could pick up some Shakeology for yourself, and give the program away to a friend/family member as a gift!

2. Last chance to sign up for my 60-Day Coach Training course (starts Monday November 4th).

3.. Here is my latest post in P90X University: Plyometrics.

4. I have been hard at work finishing my basement, as well as the space here devoted to my home gym. I have had a lot of requests to see the new gym, and although it is not done (yet), here is a detailed post showing the progress so far.

5. My thoughts on downloading your workout programs...

6. For those of you who aren't following me on Facebook or Twitter yet, or for those of you who DO follow me, make sure to keep an eye out at 8pm on Mondays-Fridays. I have written so many great, insightful blogs that may get missed by so many, especially those of you new to the team, that I figured I would go through and post my favourite/most popular blogs and post from my archive. Here are the 2 I've posted so far:

Small Changes Add Up

Don't Forget About Your Sleep

7. Not really sure why, but Beachbody is announcing their November promotions a day early (October 31st). So, if you are interested in what's going to be offered at discount for November, make sure to check out my website tomorrow. (p.s. I honestly have no idea what's on sale, so just check back with my then!)

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!

I have been invited to be a part of Google Helpouts

I have been invited to join   Google Helpouts during early development. What is Google Helpouts you ask? It is a service that connects individuals with expertise on a subject, with those who are seeking help.

I was invited to join based on my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) designation from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA)

For those of you who have known me for a little while, or may have seen my YouTube videos in the past, should know that this opportunity is RIGHT up my alley. I am really looking forward to what this opportunity holds.

This will be a chance for me to continue to do what I love - help people. The arena in which I have chosen to help others is in the health and fitness industry. I have learned a lot over the last several years leading up to this moment, and look forward to connecting with even more  people who are looking for help/advice.

I have created a listing and a profile and have had a live video chat with a Google representative setting up my profile and getting ready for this service. I have been told that there are only about 5000 registered users (one being me), and that the service will be going live around November 1st (or during the first week of November). No word on when or if this will be opened up to others.

I am beyond excited for this opportunity...

Hey Everybody!

Exciting news from me this week. I announced on my Facebook page the other day, although I realize not all of you use Facebook, that now, I have officially become a full-time Beachbody Coach and Personal Trainer. I have been working very hard towards this goal, and I have all of you, along with my wife to thank. Of course all of my team members helped me get to this point, so I would like to thank all of you for your support, especially the outpouring of support lately! My wife has been adamant about me doing what I enjoy, so I am taking this step to do just that! So, I will be working, as a personal trainer at a local gym, also personal training clients on-location, and when I am not helping people that way, I will be working my Beachbody business, helping all of you.

It makes for a very busy schedule, but I really enjoy helping others, especially by sharing my knowledge on the health and fitness industry. I think I have made this pretty apparent, especially lately, and hope to keep all of your support as we move towards P90X3 and beyond!

This week's topics of interest:

1. Remember to join my P90X3 Challenge Group. As I am writing this, we are sitting at 13 members and continuing to grow...and the program doesn't even come out for 2 more months! Studies have shown that working out in a group setting helps individuals stay motivated, and although we will be working out at home, it is great to have that "group mentality" online to motivate you to keep pushing play!

2. Don't forget that both P90X and P90X2 Challenge Packs are both on sale this month, you save over $90! Great way to maybe pick up a program and/or Shakeology for someone as a gift for this holiday season. Don't forget that when you purchase a Challenge Pack, Beachbody will waive your $39.95 Coach sign-up fee. You can become a Coach and sell P90X3, which I have no doubts, will become one of the top-selling home workout programs of all time!

3. Make sure to check out the latest class at P90X University - The Science of P90X: Progressive Overload.

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!

Weekly Newsletter

Hey Everyone

September is winding down, as this is my last weekly newsletter of the month. Unbelievable!

That also means that, as of this Saturday coming up (28th), I only have 7 weeks until the World's Toughest Mudder!...

I want to thank everyone for their support after last week's rant. I never intended for it to be a pity party on my behalf, just wanted to share with all of you the time and effort I put into helping others. I received such an amazing outpouring of support in return, definitely picking my head back up and reminding me that I have some amazing team members, as well as reminding me how many great people I already get to interact with!

Just a quick reminder. I am not giving up Coaching, in fact, I plan on being a Beachbody Coach for a long time! I just plan on taking a step back from a lot of the services I provide, and focusing more on my own team members/Coaches and helping the people that truly want to be helped.

A real quick update on the exciting developments/news stories from this past week:

1. In case you haven't heard, P90X3 is coming out on December 10th 2013. There are plenty of other details that have been released, including a brand-new video. You can find all of the new information on my website.

2. Beachbody has announced new Shakeology options. Both of these options have been highly-requested. First, you can now order Shakeology "Taste Samplers", which is a 4-pack of Shakeology samples: 2 chocolate, 1 vanilla, 1 green berry. Keep in mind that they limit just 1 sampler pack per customer. Second, you can now order chocolate/vanilla combo packs. Keep in mind that these packs are 24 pouches of the individually-packed samples. I prefer the 30-serving bags as the value is better, but if you wish to have more variety in your life, this option is now available. Also great for Coaches who wish to keep these 2 popular flavours in stock to hand out to customers.

3. The latest P90X University course is now available: The Science of P90X - Circuit Training

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

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

Star Diamond Rank = Avg. Yearly Earnings: $79,521. High: $1,423,863

Weekly Newsletter

Hey Everybody

I just want to discuss the topic of Shakeology samples really quick because I have had a few questions from some of you.

Why do I offer free Shakeology samples?

Crazy right? I spend $6-7 per serving, straight out of my own pocket to send samples out to anyone interested. Why do I do this? Well, to be honest, I do so because I wish to share it with as many people as possible. I am more than willing to fork out the dough to help all of you discover this product. Having said that, I don't do this just so that you can "see what it tastes like"...

When I first signed up to be a Coach back on October 1st 2012, I didn't sign up for Shakeology right away. I was skeptical about the product because of how "sleazy" a lot of Beachbody Coaches can be - let's be honest here!

What finally sparked me to give it a try was because I had my World's Toughest Mudder coming up in November, so I figured it could help aid my recovery from training, as well as improve my energy levels (if was as good as advertised). Now that I have been taking it since the beginning of November, I refuse to give it up!

I truly, honestly believe in this product. So much so, that I now have my mom taking it, my sister taking it, and I am actively trying to get my brother and dad to take it too.

The tough part in all of this, is trying to get someone to appreciate how great of a product is with just one taste (some of you have had more than one sample mind you!).

What I ask out of many of you is this, if I have sent you a sample and you at least somewhat like the flavour (not even LOVE it), be honest with yourself and try a month's supply. Beachbody has a "bottom of the bag guarantee" so if you honestly don't feel any different by the end of the 30 days, you can get a full refund...even if the bag is empty (hence the name of the guarantee!). Beachbody is that confident in their product that they are willing to let you drink down the entire bag and STILL give you your money back if you desire...quite a statement in my opinion!

Buy a bag, take Shakeology every. single. day. for 30 straight days, replacing one meal or snack a day with it, exercise for at least 30 minutes every day for those 30 days, and honestly let me know how you feel after 30 days!

As for the flavour, I have a Coach on my team who admitted to me that he did not like the taste of Shakeology when he first started, but not he can't go without it. Just keep that in mind as well.

If you have any questions/comments/concerns surrounding Shakeology, e-mail me!

This week's topics of interest:

1. Focus T25 has been such a HUGE hit that Beachbody is extending free shipping until July 28th! Challenge Pack is also on sale for $180 (over $70 savings) until the end of July. Message me for further details.

2. Focus T25 Challenge Pack is still on sale for $180 until the end of July (over $90 savings).
