Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

P90X, Insanity, RevAbs...

What will they come up with next?

I almost don't want Beachbody to develop any new programs because how can you improve on perfection? Plus, how can I give up P90X to do Insanity? and how can I give up Insanity to do RevAbs? Before Insanity and RevAbs came out, I was totally planning on getting P90X+ next and maybe even ordering Hip Hop Abs or Turbo Jam for some variety and fun....but now...there's just too many to choose from!
See...most people appreciate variety and options...but not me. I like to keep it simple. Give me one, maybe two, programs that work and I'm good to go. Give me 10 different fabulous choices and I'm likely to sit there staring at them all trying to decide and never really do any!
(hmmm...sounds a lot like what I do when I have a hundred things to do around the house and I can't figure out where to start!)

Anyway, I think I may have come up with an idea that will let me dabble in many of these different programs without having to commit to all of them!
If I order all the people in my family a program from Beachbody for Christmas (even some as a 'family gift') then I can borrow a dvd from them every so often to see what that particular work out is like.
Plus, what better gift could I buy at Wal-Mart or the mall than one that will give them a healthier, longer life?

Besides giving them the program, I am also giving them my promise to coach them the entire way and see them through the journey. The way I see it...that's a pretty great gift. I would have loved for someone to have done this for me 5 years ago when I was 60 pounds overweight and miserable with no idea of what to do to change it.

To be bluntly honest with you, I need to start strategizing ways to build my Beachbody coaching business. It started out slow, began to boom and be succesful and now it seems to have come to a screeching halt. No new customers, no new sales, no business. Hmmph!
If I am your coach and you feel that I am a good one, please spread the word to your friends and family. This coaching thing is an amazing opportunity and I love, love, love helping people and encouraging them --- but it does cost me $$ monthly to be a coach--and right now, I'm paying out but not making anything. If I can't figure out a way to reverse that, I don't see how it is wise to continue. I will never stop LOVING Beachbody and their products and spreading the word about them...but I can't send them money every month and get nothing in return.
I am going to get more serious about advertising and getting my business cards circulating. If you're reading this, maybe you would consider passing my name on when you hear of someone looking to start a program..!?!
I appreciate all of you--my readers and friends and teammates! You are as much of an inspiration to me as I could ever be to you! Many days, it is YOU that I think of when I don't feel energy to workout or motivation to eat right, and suddenly I can do it! This blog and meeting all of you, getting all your wonderful comments, has been such a blessing and I look forward to many, many more sweaty workouts, healthy meals and fitness talk with you in the future!

wow, I guess its been awhile since I checked these, can't believe I am so far behind, sorry. I think your family might "catch on" to your plan if u are asking to borrow the dvd's-ha ha.

I'm looking into getting certified as a personal trainer through NASM - and I already sell and use Herbalife products which are awesome, and I'm making money!!

I figure the best way to make money is to take what I've learned and can continue to learn from the Beach Body videos and apply it in my own way with clients at my own boot camps - that allows me the ability to promote my Herbalife products at the same time!!

Getting started with Herbalife costs $60.00 one time and I made that back and then some in under a week with 3 sales. Call me if you want to talk about it in person - or email.

It IS overwhelming when trying to choose from so many exercise programs. I'm still struggling with that myself. But I like your plan to get your family involved in your business and get to try all the programs for yourself too! Smart thinkin' woman! I tend to get bored with the same old thing every day and need to switch up my routine or look for new ways to challenge myself after a while.
And isn't it frustrating when your business stalls out like that? I definitely went through that with my Pampered Chef business. My problem was I was too afraid to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people and tell them about my business. I didn't want to seem pushy you know. I've been doing a lot of thinking about that and decided that I have GOT to overcome this if I'm ever going to be successful in my business. Not saying this is your problem at all, just letting you know I definitely sympathize with your frustration! Hang in there!
