Been thinking about becoming a Beachbody coach? Great, you’ve come to the right place. There’s not many Beachbody Coaches that have the type of experience and success that I’ve had in the business. A lot of Coaches claim to be “top Beachbody Coaches,” but I am an actual Top Coach and millionaire in the business. I’ve got the accolades to actually call myself a Top Coach. Making me even more rare is the fact that I’m a male in a very female dominated network. If you’re interested in the business, read on. I’m going to explain my story and then about my team and how I mentor others.
My story is quite interesting. I grew up in a family of business owners. My grandpa owned a large grocery store and my father currently owns and operates three businesses himself. While I was young I always believed that I was also destined to be a business owner. How could I not? It’s in my blood. When I was a senior in high school I received a scholarship offer and accepted to play baseball in college. Throughout college I planned on getting my degree in Finance and Business, eventually opening up my own Financial Planning firm. Once I graduated, I got a job as a Financial Advisor, thinking that it would give me the necessary experience and knowledge to be able to become a Financial Planner. Once I discovered what the industry was like, though, I quickly lost my passion. With the stress of my career, I stopped working out and gained quite a bit of weight in a short amount of time. My health spiraled out of control and I knew I needed to make a change and that’s when I found P90X. I purchased the program and committed myself entirely to the workouts and nutrition plan for 90 days and ended up getting into the best shape of my life.
My career continued on a downward spiral. I wasn’t able to reach my quota one month and didn’t get paid because of it. With the way it worked, if you missed the quota, you had to make up for the amount that you missed it by the next month if you wanted to get paid again. I fell so far behind that I worked for months without any pay. It wasn’t good for someone living on their own. I lost all desire to work in the industry and wanted to do something different. After completing P90X I had developed a passion for fitness and helping others experience the same changes that I did. My Coach told me about the Coaching Opportunity shortly after I completed my first round of P90X, but I told her no. There was just too much going on in my life at the time. A few months later, I really starting thinking about becoming a Beachbody Coach and decided to join up in July of 2008. Not too long afterwards I quit my Financial Advising job and starting working for my father. Luckily, he allowed me to leave work early so that I could focus some effort on building my Beachbody business.
Being so young, though, I was clueless about how to build a business. I had to figure it out on my own by doing a ton of research on branding, social media marketing, and leadership, but that all took time. Fast forward a year and my business still wasn’t really growing. In fact, with earning just a little here and there with Beachbody and working part time for my father, my now wife and I hit some very rough financial times. I couldn’t support our family and we relied on government assistance to help us out. We were living in a tiny one bedroom apartment with our daughter and could barely afford rent. We let our daughter sleep in the only room while we slept on a cheap couch. Times were hard. It was normal for us to have just $50-$100 in our bank account at a time. There was one moment, though, that changed everything for me. We were in the grocery store purchasing food for the week and I came to the realization that I was failing my family when I handed the cashier the government assistance card. What kind of father am I if I can’t even afford formula for my child? It was at that moment that I decided to really take Beachbody seriously.
I sat my wife down and told her that if she gave me one year of sacrifice and hard work that I would provide her and our daughter with a lifetime of freedom. That was late 2009. In 2010 I went full-time as a Coach, became the Top Beachbody Coach in the entire network, and went from being on government assistance to a six-figure income. From then on my team just exploded and I helped one of the men that I brought into the business become the Top Coach in 2011 and 2012. My team, Team Next Level, has become one of the most successful teams in the entire network. To this day, 10 years into the business, I still bring on people to mentor and achieve the type of success that I have been fortunate enough to experience. In the 10 years I’ve been a Coach, I’m the Top Beachbody Coach 2010, a 3X Elite Coach, 2X Top 10 Coach, 1X Premiere, a former CAB (Coach Advisory Board) member, and part of the Million Club. I have also helped create many six figure earners on my team as well.
I’m a little bit different than most other Coaches that you will come across. I’m a no bullshit, straight-forward type of guy. If I’m doing something wrong, I want someone to tell me exactly what I’m doing wrong and what I need to change. I don’t want someone telling me what I want to hear. I want someone to tell me what I need to hear. There is a big difference. Because of that, that’s how I am with both the people I coach with fitness and the Coaches on my team. If I tell others what they want to hear and not what they need to hear, I’m doing them a disservice and not helping them move forward. My mission is to help as many people succeed as I can. Most people hate hearing that they are failing or doing something wrong, but it’s important that they know so that they can make necessary changes and move towards success. What’s important to understand, though, is that I am this way for the right reasons. I’m not trying to be an asshole, but rather I have a desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Through years of experience, my straight-forward, no bullshit approach is what has been most effective. It’s why the people I work with are able to make real, long term changes. People might be upset with me at first because I’m telling them something they don’t want to hear, but they always come back to me later and thank me for being so straight-forward with them.
But I also have a very laid back, fun side as well. I am probably one of the most easy going people you will ever meet! I like to have a good time. I always try to be myself and as transparent as possible and teach my Coaches the same thing.
