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 this low impact workout can provide such amazing results.

If you need to lose inches in your mid-section and thighs … then this is the program for you! There is a modifier if you need beginner options (which I followed a lot in the beginning!!). I’ve noticed a difference in my abs and lower back (also know as muffin top and love handles!) and my glutes (also known as butt) is firmer and tighter. I’ll post my final measurements and improvements at the end of the program.

Check out this video to learn more about PiYo. If you have questions, email me and if you decide to do the program then I will send you my personal meal plan and help you create a lifestyle plan to get the best results (if you want the help … if not, just follow the program guide and know I’m here if you have questions)

Cherry Blossom Smoothie Bowl

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 service. You receive 25% commission from all purchases and receive a weekly check.

2. There are quality nutritional programs through Beachbody that focus on portion control, meal planning and more. As trainers, we meet with our clients and know they are exercising but sometimes the nutrition piece is missing. With these resources, it’s easier to help clients eat healthy which allows them to have better results — being happy and helping your retention.

3. Another way is with the workout programs and exercise equipment. When you teach your client how to do exercises using a foam roller — they can now buy one from your site and do it at home when they aren’t with you (and you receive commission).  Also, training your clients 2-3 days per week is great but what about the other 3-4 days? If they have a home workout program that you can suggest, you know what they are doing on their days “off” and it blends well with what they do while they are with you … again, helping them achieve better results and being happy with you!

These are just a few of the ways that personal trainers and group exercise instructors are integrating their Beachbody coaching business to grow. Please contact me with questions, so I can help you get started and create a personalized business plan.

Kristen 21 Day Fix Success Story

Kristen 21 Day Fix Success StoryWe are all BUSY … whether it’s a move like Kristen’s story or it’s carpooling with kids, traveling for work … we tend to eat out more than we should (want). These eating habits can catch up with us … in more ways than one! I’m so glad Kristen decided to try the 21 day fix and learned healthier habits.

Kristen went through a huge move that kept her from cooking at home. As a result, she would eat out regularly and wasn’t making the healthiest choices! Once she saw the results 21 Day Fix was giving other people, she decided to try it for herself. In 21 days, she lost 11 pounds and 13 inches!

She said, “The 21 Day Fix helped me in so many ways. Not only am I able to feel comfortable for the first time in years, but my eating habits are so much better. This program isn’t like other diets. It’s a way of life.”

Way to go, Kristen!
