Sharing That Feeling

I've been lurking over at BeachBody for quite some time.  It has been most likely over a year since I started checking things out, reading up on their business, watching videos, infomercials, workouts, products and I decided to just jump in.  No, it wasn't a light decision.  I had thought long and hard why I would want to add something else to my plate.

I want to help others. I really do.  I know that my last post about helping others was about those in need.  People that are looking to get healthier, more fit, lose some weight, tone their muscles, slim down or just feel their best are in need too.  Most of the time, it is to feel better about themselves.  It is hard to look in the mirror and not like what you see.  I've been there, in fact, I am there right now.  I haven't been exercising like I used to, I've slacked off some. I'm not eating very healthy at all.

I can't make changes for anyone else other than myself.  I can support, encourage and be by their side, but I can't do it for them.  People need to want to change their lifestyles or habits.  I can be a guide.  I can be their cheerleader.  I can help them along their journey and that is just what I want to do.  I want to help others.

I am now a Beachbody Coach.  This means that I can be that person who gives you a daily reminder to do your best, to put that effort in, to be the shoulder to lean on when the day is rough and you really don't feel like exercising but need to vent, to just be there on both good days and bad days.  I want to help others.

This is a business, yes, I am going to make a commission from sales but that isn't what drove me. I already have 3 other jobs.  I am looking for a way to encourage others to be healthy and to be that driving force behind a smile.  A good feeling about themselves and determination go a very long way.

I will also be using the products, I want to be an example to others.  I am human, there are days when I do not want to be active.  I want to sit on the couch and eat those damn cookies.  I have done that....I may have done that two days ago.  Today is a new day.

I need to start over and change my ways.  For myself and for others.

Have you heard of BeachBody?  Do you want more information or want to try one of the products?  Just let me know.  I am thinking of trying out the Focus T25.  I thought that maybe Chuck and I could try it together.
