Hey there! As you know, I am a Beachbody coach, and I absolutely LOVE it! Before our webinar tonight, I wanted to make a post about a few misconceptions about Beachbody coaches!
Here they are!
1. You have to be a fitness or nutrition professional! FALSE!
I wasn’t one when I started, but I keep learning more and more! Beachbody is about REGULAR PEOPLE helping and inspiring other people! The professionals at Beachbody design amazing, cutting edge fitness programs, meal plans, and supplements that we coaches can share with other people, which takes the “expert” part out! But if you are a fitness or nutrition pro – that’s great too!
2. You have to have reached your goal body/have a perfect body to be a coach! FALSE!
Everyone is inspired by different people! Some people might be intimidated by a coach with a perfect body, because he or she might feel like that coach with the perfect body doesn’t understand the struggle. The MOST IMPORTANT THING is to be walking the walk and working on your goals! So wherever you are on your fitness and nutrition journey, as long as you are trying, you can help and inspire others! In fact, being a coach can help you to stay accountable to your goals and keep you on track – if you are leading others, you have to be doing it too, or else you’d be a hypocrite!
3. I am not a good salesperson, and need to be to be a successful Beachbody coach. FALSE!
On my team, we actually don’t even WANT sales people! Icky! Beachbody coaching is not a sales job. If we talked people into programs or supplements, and they were not ready to make a change, they would not be successful. It is all about sharing products that work and helping people reach their goals!
4. I don’t know many people, so I will not be able to be successful. FALSE!
On my team, we offer training to help you meet people! If I ONLY shared Beachbody with people that I knew when I started, I would probably not be coaching anymore! But I have met people who are now dear to me through Beachbody, because I learned how to continuously grow my network and share my passion with them!
5. I need a lot of time to be a Beachbody coach. FALSE!
When you first start growing your business, most Beachbody work fits in along with what you are already doing – hopefully that includes working out and eating clean and socializing! Eventually, if you want to grow your business, you may need to schedule specific time, but it doesn’t even have to be a lot! Just like with meeting people, we offer training to help maximize your time! The point of Beachbody coaching is to improve your life, not add stress to it! 😉
