6 Reasons Beachbody Programs Work

So! Is Beachbody Really All that Different?

I get this question, or some variation of this question a lot. And it's a great question!  I mean, if you are like I was, nothing seemed to work for me, so you are thinking why should this be any different? If you just trust me on this when I say IT IS! then you can skip this whole list and email me right now. But, you probably want some reasons that reasonate with you!

1. Each program comes with a nutrition guide: For once, a company focuses on both aspects of a healthy weight loss... BOTH exercise AND nutrition!

2. Each program has a schedule to follow: No need to be lost on what to do when... It is given to you!

3. There is a program out there for EVERYONE: Based on your Intensity level,  and if you have any restrictions from injuries.

4. Focus on LONG TERM vs. SHORT TERM LIFESTYLE: So many FAD diets are only temporary... The food and shakes are full of chemicals, and do not give you the proper nutrition, SO when you get off these foods and go back to regular food, you will eventually gain that weight back.

5. Time efficient: Being that I am a mom and my husband and I commute back and forth between states, I do not have 1 or 2 hours to spend at the gym, along with trying to raise two teens alone, while I travel back and forth to the gym.... Beachbody's home DVD programs give you the opportunity to work out in your own home, without having to leave the house and waste more time going back and forth.

6. Money saver:  Paying for a monthly gym membership... hmmm, I bet many of us know how that goes... we pay for a gym, but go months without stepping foot in a gym! I have found paying for a workout program that I have FOREVER makes me feel I'm getting the most out of my buck!

These are just some amazing benefits that Beachbody has provided me, that I can now share with many others and give everyone else the great opportunity I had!

So that is why I love the Beachbody Challenge I offer every month to you!

So, now you're asking, what is a Beachbody Challenge??

Another great question!

I, as a Beachbody coach, hold closed groups with the free Beachbody Challenger Tracker phone app, and I work with YOU to help you reach your ultimate health and fitness goals..

HOW does this work??
1.You and I pick your workout program and follow the schedule and nutrition guide

2. I give you daily motivation

3.I provide my challengers with healthy recipes

4.I provide my challengers with meal plans and help them make their own if they need help

5.We take before and after pictures to help track our progress of our journey

6.Challengers check in DAILY: Take 2 minutes to say how your day went.... Did you complete your daily workout, did you drink your Shakeology, and how did you eat? For my groups, I really like to work on what is behind the unhealthiness and work on mental strength as well.

* If you are willing to commit to the Beachbody Challenge, I PROMISE YOU RESULTS!!
The only way out of not getting the results you are looking for or more, is if you do not follow the program.

When I started my weightloss and fitness journey I was completing the workout programs successfully, having a personal trainer on my TV to push and motivate me, on top of a support group with people having the same goals as me help me through my tough times, and a coach to guide me and help me with meal planning and accountability, made all the difference!

I have NEVER found such an easy, convenient health and fitness plan, than those with Beachbody.  I have gone through several programs now including Insanity, P90X, TURBOFIRE, Asylum, Cize, Hammer & Chisel, The 21 Day Fix, Max Insanity 30, T25, Cize, and PiYo! Yeah, they are that good!!

You put in the effort, the commitment, and the time, and the results will follow right behind!


3 Tips for Scheduling Your Workouts

3 easy ways to keep track of where you've come from and where you are heading on your wellness journey.

         1. Keep your Workout Calendar right where you workout. Your calendar is the Beachbody Calendar that maps out your workouts for every single day of the week-rest day included!  

    Why is this important?? Checking off your completed workouts makes you FEEL like you have accomplished something, and you have! So, reward yourself! A check -or big red "X"- is a visual reminder of your hard work. 
    Workout Binder
    Calendars of Beachbody Workout Schedules

         2. Keep a Workout Binder. 

    Why does this help?? The simple act of writing down what you have completed encourages consistency. So, when the scale doesn't reflect your diligence, a look at your binder will remind you that now is not the time to quit! Look at all you've done! Also, there is something about having a blank line (from a missed workout) that is motivation in itself to keep at it and fill every line!

    Just a Binder and Paper is all You Need


    What's in Shakeology?!

    Shakeology Ingredients
    It's the most nutritious meal of the day-Shakeology. So, what's in it?

    Shakeology is made from some of the best stuff on Earth and today we’re going to dive in head first to let you know exactly What’s In Shakeology?
    Great Question!
    What's in Shakeology
    Shakeology contains natural ingredients from all over earth.
    These delicious ingredients are derived from rich, nutrient-dense whole-food sources from around the world. And when we say “around the world” we mean it literally. We scoured the Andes, the Amazon, the Himalayas, Costa Rica, and even the land belonging to our friendly neighbors to the north—Canada—for the richest and most potent ingredients available. Most of this stuff you’ve never heard of, but the ingredients in Shakeology are life-changers. And here’s why…
    Shakeology and your health
    Shakeology is packed with superfoods.
    What’s a superfood, you ask? Superfood is the collective name given to the most nutrient-dense foods on our planet. They go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs; in addition, they have high concentrations of multiple nutrients, such as antioxidants, phytonutrients, or adaptogens that work together to support the immune system and help fight aging.*
    Shakeology’s ingredients fall into these powerful nutrient groups:
    • Proteins and Amino Acids
    • Antioxidants
    • Phytonutrients
    • Adaptogen Herbs
    • Prebiotics and Probiotics
    • Digestive Enzymes
    (Whey, Pea, Chia, Quinoa, Flax, Sacha Inchi; Vegan Protein blend also includes Oat, Pea, and Rice Proteins
    These two very important elements help build and repair muscles, reduce hunger and food cravings, support optimal brain function, improve your mood, and promote healthy skin, hair, and nails. The bottom line is, your body NEEDS proteins and amino acids to thrive—and Shakeology has lots and lots of them!
    ANTIOXIDANTS (Cacao,  Acerola Cherry, Pomegranate, Camu-Camu, Bilberry, Goji Berry, Blueberry, Green Tea, Rose Hips, Cinnamon, Luo Han Guo)
    Antioxidants are incredibly important in one’s diet because they neutralize molecules known as free radicals. These destructive little devils damage your body the same way oxygen in the air rusts exposed metal on a car. Unfortunately, free radicals are natural by-products that our cells produce, and if you don’t have enough antioxidants to absorb free radicals, they overwhelm your cells, oxidizing and destroying them.
    Moral of the story: Load your body up with antioxidants and super-fruits (via Shakeology) to help keep you happy and healthy for a long, long time.
    (Moringa, Spirulina, Chlorella, Spinach, Kale)
    Phytonutrients are the active elements found in fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and teas. All the green superfoods in Shakeology contain phytonutrients that are known to promote a healthy immune system, healthy aging, and help to detoxify and alkalinize the body.
    Alkalinize? What does that mean?
    Think back to science class when you were a kid and did that litmus paper test. If something was too acidic it turned the paper red. RED = BAD. If it was too much of a base it turned the paper purple. PURPLE = BAD. But right in the middle is the neutral zone (which is where we want our bodies’ pH levels to be). To be in that happy zone we need to “alkalinize” our bodies. And the alkaline nature of phytonutrients (which are packed in Shakeology) helps promote alkalinity in your body.
    Unfortunately, the American diet is comprised of waaaaaay too many acidic foods—things like soda, energy drinks, coffee, alcohol, pasta, and processed deli meat. And an acidic environment in the body may lead to disease. So if you’re a self-proclaimed veggie hater (like our CEO Carl Daikeler claims to be), DRINK SHAKEOLOGY and you won’t even know you’re drinking phytonutrients that help alkalinize your body. You’ll just be happy and healthy.
    (Maca, Astragalus, Ashwagandha, Maitake Mushroom, Cordyceps, Reishi Mushroom, Schisandra)
    If they sound like something out of a sci-fi movie, they kind of are. Adaptogens are special herbs that often grow in harsh climates and conditions, at high elevations and on mountaintops where the soil is rocky and oxygen is thin.
    Because these plants have to adapt to very harsh conditions, they have been traditionally said to have highly concentrated nutrients that can help your body cope with stress, and help neutralize harmful free radicals.
    (Yacon Root, Chicory Root, Lactobacillus Sporogenes [Bacillus Coagulans])
    Prebiotics pretty much act as “food” that fuels the growth of probiotics (the good bacteria) that are naturally found in your intestines.
    Probiotics are strains of good bacteria that assist your body in absorbing nutrients and minerals, bringing an overall balance to the digestive tract while helping support your immune system.
    Forget what those cleaning product commercials tell you about bacteria being bad, because these kinds of bacteria are important for proper digestive health and a strong immune system.
    (Amylase, Caellulase, Lactase, Glucoamylase, Invertase)
    Digestive Enzymes help your body break food down into its individual components, making nutrients easier to absorb. Because cooking can destroy foods’ natural digestive enzymes, there’s a very good chance that you don’t get enough of these enzymes in an average diet.
    Then we loaded Shakeology up with VITAMINS and MINERALS.
    The truth is, most of us don’t get the complete range of vitamins and minerals in our daily diets. Some important vitamins, like vitamin C and the B vitamins, are water-soluble, which means they need to be replenished regularly. And other vitamins, like vitamin D, can be difficult to get enough of in food.
    And there you have it, the magical ingredients inside of every Shakeology.
    Now try explaining all that to your friends when they ask you why you drink Shakeology every single day! That knowledge really is a good party trick. Or, you could just say: it’s the Healthiest Meal of the Day® and I love the way it tastes—end of story.

    Testimonial-Jenny Lost 10 Pounds in 3 Weeks!

    3 weeks and 10 pounds!
    August 26 · 3 weeks - 21 days! @jamiemichellefitness 10 pounds gone, 9 inches gone. Two years ago I trained for a full year for a half marathon, I ran six to 11 miles a day, six days a week. Two 13.1's and 11 months later I only lost three (3) pounds. "Well that worked out well" SAID NO ONE EVER. What I did say was, what a disappointment. I took the "run" challenge to mark a half marathon (or two) off my bucket list AND to lose a few pounds. I say all that to say this. The 21 Day Fix works! I must admit, at first I was quite skeptical, so much so I didn't take before and after pics. That was a grave mistake. The results are real. For more info visit Jamie Parker Snuffer for the low down. I'm holding out for 20 more! #igotthis #21dayfix #jamiemichellefitness

    4 Things I've Learned about Successful Beachbody Coaches

    I want to share how Beachbody is impacting my life because I hope it will help you see if YOU would like to coach! I've now been a coach for 5 months-time flies. Here's what I've learned.

    Email me. I'd love to show YOU how. JamieMichelleFitness@gmail.com

    What I've Learned

    Successful Coaches are Consistent Coaches

    The coaches who consistently reach out to others and share their story, share their love for Beachbody, are the most successful. That seems obvious, I know. But, what I've learned is if I want to be the very best coach I can be, or if you want to be a top coach, you and I have to show up and share. Every. Single. Day. 

    It's a Process

    The first few months, sometimes I felt like I was not helping ANYONE. Just being honest here. I felt like I wasn't making ANY difference in other's lives. But, 5 months into it, I'm beginning to see the process unfold.  As a coach I know I HAVE to stick with it! If you are consistent and  stick with it, people WILL start coming to you! Better yet, those ladies you have been helping will reach their goals! And, do you KNOW how AWESOME it feels to see before and after photos of someone and they say, "Look what you helped me do!!"

    So, stick with it. A process takes time.

    You Have to Care

    I think some people think this is about an easy dollar or that they should be making lots of money right away. Well, first off, if you are in it JUST to make money, I'll be honest: you aren't going to succeed. People will see right through you and know you don't really care about them. You have to -and I mean you MUST-truly care about other people. Your heart has to be in the right place. And when it is?! 

    Well, THEN you DEFINITELY can make coaching your full-time career and live in a way you've only dreamed!

    You Have to Work

    So, if you are consistent. If you stick to in, knowing it's a process that times time, if you care, well, then, you have what it takes to be an amazing coach and absolutely change people's lives. You have what it takes to change you and your family's life and lifestyle. Hands down. This is the way.  

    But......you have to work. This isn't easy. You have to put systems in place that you will follow. You have to do your research, learn more, study more, be willing to sacrifice TV time. You have to take time to read personal development books and listen to audios in your car. You have to take care of your body. 

    And, you have to work smart and hard. Day in and day out. Make your check lists and check it off. 

    When you are your own boss no one is watching what you're doing. No one is expecting you at a certain hour. You have to expect MORE from YOURSELF. 

    So, after 5 Months...

    I'm still learning. And, I am certainly loving my life as a coach. I constantly meet wonderful women. I get to help others lose weight and see just how much they change on the INSIDE! It's crazy awesome!  I've opened my eyes to the bigger picture and that it really IS about helping others in this world, and coaching is my outlet to do just that. My kids are healthier because of my career choice. My husband, my mom and dad, are all healthier now.

    And, I'm happier.

    Oh, and, no, I'm not making $16,000 a week ....yet. But, my heart is in the right place. With every person I invite I truly want them to make the choice to get healthier for THEMSELVES. So, I'm not there....yet.
