How to be Mentally Strong

I teach clients, and my kids, how important it is to be mentally strong. People often focus on being physically strong but life isn't whole without the mental strength. Everyone faces challenges -- from bad days, to devastating life-changing events, sickness, financial stress, relationship issues ... Life can be tough and we need to be mentally strong to deal with these events; to learn, grow and come out of the situation stronger than before! Just as we train our muscles, we need to train our brain -- our mind-set, our thoughts, our techniques and ways to excel through the difficult days.

PiYo Workout

PiYo workout is a program that improves your strength and reduces inches. You'll look slimmer and more firm after the program. It's key to find a workout that you like to do. Otherwise, we start and stop too easily. A program that's good for one person, might not be as good for another person. The solution is finding what works for YOU. As a coach and trainer, I'm always trying to find workouts that help my clients and Beachbody customers. Not all workouts are programs that I prefer to do but I try them so I know what's included. Personally, I'm a lover of Insanity and HIIT workouts ... I like athletic workouts but programs like PiYo (yoga, pilates) are so hard for me. I committed this workout so I could show my results and help answer questions. I'm almost done .. 3 more weeks and I feel so STRONG! It's amazing that

Grow your Personal Training Business as a Beachbody Coach

Integrating your personal training business and being a Beachbody Coach is a simple way to grow your fitness business, help more people, expand your reach and make a lucrative income ... I'm a certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor and Beachbody Coach. I've been in the fitness industry for over 20 years and worked in every job from training, teaching classes, sales, marketing and management. In addition to what I mention in the video, trainers and instructors supplement their income in a few other ways. 1. Most trainers use supplements, as do most clients, so it's a natural conversation to share your personal experience. Obviously we don't tell our clients what to use but being educated helps. And, as a coach, you have your own website which allows clients an easy way to purchase from you. Coaches do not ship items or deal with the purchase order because that's all handled through Beachbody customer
