In a nutshell, an online fitness coach is someone who believes in this formula:
Exercise + Nutrition + Support = Success
Quite simply, we are an accountability buddies. Connectors of sorts. We are people who live this formula and share it with others.
A coach may be at any point on her/his own journey – just starting out, in the middle, or already maintaining great healthy habits.
“A coach is someone who is in the ring with you. An encourager, a motivator, a challenger, a cheerleader.” ~Mia, Inspiration Nation- Diamond Coach
For me and for the coaches on my team, we tend to have one or more of these things in common:
- an interest in health and fitness
- feel called to help others feel good about themselves
- want accountability for our own health and fitness goals
- are interested in earning a side income or maybe lots more!
- want to work from home (or anywhere) with flexible work hours.
There is no cookie cutter coach! We have all sizes, all shapes and all walks of life on our team.
Moms, dads, grandmas, singles, college students… social workers, lawyers, teachers, physical therapists, nurses, retirees, stay at home moms… those with great transformation stories (down 70lbs +), those who are just getting started, and those who have been fit and healthy their whole lives.
No prior knowledge is required to be an online fitness coach. Between our online office and our team training groups, we have all of the training tools and materials that you could ever need.
There is no need to be a fitness instructor or personal trainer, though if you are, great! We are simply each on our own journey to health and fitness and encouraging others to join with us!
The HEART of this business is relating to people and helping them through their struggle to be healthy and live an active life. Being REAL and relatable is the most important part of being a coach! The most successful coaches are far from perfect but they tend to be driven, positive, uplifting people who have a desire to lead healthy lives themselves and a willingness to share their journey to inspire and help others along the way.
What does an online fitness coach actually do?
The heart of what we do is back to this equation:
Exercise + Nutrition + Support = Success
We help match people with top of the line at-home fitness programs with the best nutritional shake on the market, Shakeology, as well as help them learn what to eat for the rest of the other meals each day. But the essence of coaching comes when we provide our challengers with ongoing support through online challenge groups to help them follow through. And this leads to some amazing success for the whole group!!
There is no doubt that this formula was absolutely the key for me. And it’s what has worked for countless others and their transformations.
When I was at my heaviest, post-baby #3, I had none of these in place – no exercise, poor nutrition, and little support for a healthy and fit lifestyle. I tried exercising on my own. I saw a little progress, but soon hit a plateau. It wasn’t until I joined an online group, learned about healthy nutrition and surrounded myself with the support of my online fitness coach and the others in the group who were also working toward health and fitness, that’s when I saw real, lasting success.
What does running a challenge group as an online fitness coach actually involve?
After helping a challenger customize a plan with finding which at-home workout program will be the best start for them – based on interests, exercise level, and their goals – I then add them to a closed Facebook group, where only the members of the group can see what’s posted.
Each challenger agrees to replace 1 meal/day with Shakeology for the duration of the group to give their body that one meal each day that’s super charged with ingredients that will give natural energy, reduce cravings, help them stay full for at least 3 hours. (It’s like eating 6 super food salads in one meal!)
“I love learning more about clean eating and using it more in my life for me and my family. I love the positive feedback from everyone and knowing there is always someone there for encouragement and help if I need it. I love the workouts and how involved my children get with the them and eating better. I love knowing I am doing this to better myself and my family.”~Jenn, Challenger
Every day I post in the Challenge Group things to keep everyone on track. Challengers in the group agree to to check in daily for their own accountability.
Throughout the group, we address concerns such as emotional eating, temptations through weekends and holidays, mindless snacking, and so on. We support each other when others in our day-to-day lives may not be trying to get healthy.
“I can’t express how grateful I feel. It’s a Saturday afternoon and instead of feeling sluggish and tired, I have energy and feel motivated! With your help and the support of the challenge groups I have completely changed my life!” ~Nicole
My team of coaches and I have created entire curriculums for each challenge group to help guide and support every challenger to finish what they start with great success! And these curriculums are shared with all members of our coaching team!
“The group definitely kept me motivated and accountable. The best part for me was probably all the knowledge that I gained that I may not have had I just been on this journey alone….Thanks everyone for all the shared knowledge and inspiration!”~Heather, Challenger
Why do we coach?
“I LOVE the workouts, shakeology/eating clean, helping others and the biz opportunity. I also LOVE how BB is teaching a way of life…not selling a product. It takes many facets to remain healthy… exercise, nutrition, mindset, accountability, teamwork… it’s all encompassing!” ~Sarah, Inspiration Nation – Diamond Coach
“Business picked up even more as did the pay, and suddenly I realized, if I could do what I am doing now part time and match or even exceed my current weekly salary think of what I could do if I was able to put more time into it and work the business full time! And so that became one of my goals. This summer I will be working as a full time beachbody health and fitness coach and I can’t wait!”~Teri Schall, Inspiration Nation – Star Diamond Coach
“I started coaching after having my baby, and signed on to coach to not only help people, but to keep myself accountable. Since then, I have been drinking Shakeology and it has changed my life-seriously, I am no longer taking my medication for IBS!!”~ Anne Dimond, Inspiration Nation – Diamond Coach
“It is a way for me to supplement my income by doing the exact same things I would do anyway (workout and drink Shakeology) and I can help other people with their health and fitness journey by showing how I did the same.” ~Sarah Krolikowski, Inspiration Nation – Emerald Coach
“I started out as a discount coach just to get the 25% off of my products while I was doing a challenge group. I had such great results, that I decided I wanted to help others do the same. I’ve since discovered a calling in my life to help others to improve their health and fitness so they can live happy, fulfilling lives and prevent illness. The extra income has been a great blessing for our family, and I’m excited about the possibilities for the future.” ~Nadine Bryant, Inspiration Nation – Star Diamond Coach
