Meet my friend, Hannah. We played volleyball together as youngins and both attended Michigan State University. Hannah & I agree that everyone should find a way to make physical fitness enjoyable. I recently mentioned that I loved taking Body Pump classes, but was trying to decide what I wanted to do about a gym membership. Hannah’s a coach for Beachbody (the company who created Body Pump), so I asked her to write a guest post & share all the opportunities that Beachbody offers.
I’m sure you’ve heard of P90X and Insanity – but how much do you know about the company behind these products?
(Jess: My friend Jeff @ Money Spruce completed P90x and is currently tackling Insanity. Be sure to read his post about Home Workouts.)
Team Beachbody is an amazing company dedicated to ending the trend of obesity through workout programs, supplements, online support, meal planning, advice from leading fitness experts, and more. If you shop Team Beachbody from the website listed below, you’ll find more than just intense programs like Insanity, P90X2, Turbofire, and ChaLEAN Extreme. You will also notice beginner-friendly workouts such as 10 minute trainer, Power 90, Hip Hop Abs, Brazil Butt Lift, and TurboJam. I truly believe Beachbody has a workout for everyone. The resources provided by Beachbody have helped thousands of people to reach their fitness goals.
One very unique thing about Team Beachbody is its coaches. Beachbody coaches are not salespeople and we are not necessarily experts. A coach does not have to be a nutritionist, a personal trainer, or a body builder (although all are welcome). If you have the desire to help end the trend of obesity by motivating and encouraging others – YOU can be a Beachbody Coach!
One of the greatest options that Beachbody Coaches offer is our new Challenge Packs. Coaches form small accountability groups of 5-6 individuals who want to lose weight and improve overall health. The reason is simple: Fitness + Nutrition + Support = Success. Challenge groups incorporate all of the above. You get fitness in the form of a workout program, nutrition in the form of Shakeology, customized meal planning through a VIP membership, and personalized support from your very own Beachbody coach. It’s a fantastic concept, AND Challenge packs are the only way to save $$ on this combination of products!
So what if you need to get in shape, but you feel like you’re just not ready to start a workout program? My advice for you is to just START and do the best YOU can. You deserve to invest in your own personal health and fitness in order to feel better in all aspects of your life. Taking action is the first step to a healthier lifestyle. I’m not saying you have to work out and drink Shakeology seven days a week – but after you notice how much better you feel, you just might want to!
