This is the second article in a series I’m writing called: 10 Critical Steps to Becoming a Successful Beachbody Coach. It was inspired by a training call my upline sponsor Jenelle Summers did recently.
I hope these articles help you whether you’re already a Beachbody coach or are still on the fence. Originally I was only going to share these articles with my coaching support team but then I figured if more people could benefit then that would be even better.
Here are links to previous articles:
2. Be a Product of the Product
Now, I’m not saying you need to be at a certain size or fitness level. You just need to practice what you preach! If you’re promoting a lifestyle of health/fitness/nutrition you need to walk-the-walk and not just talk-the-talk. Does it mean you need to be perfect? No! But if you want to give people something to be inspired by, YOU need to be inspired! You gotta be on a mission and overcoming things that are difficult for you.
It’s also important to know that you don’t have to LOVE and recommend EVERYTHING that Beachbody sells. For example, I don’t like the Turbo workouts all that much (SHOCKER isn’t it?!), but that certainly doesn’t mean someone else won’t enjoy them or get good results from them (which of course MANY people do!!). It’s just not my thing so you won’t see me running around saying TURBO IS MY LIFE! cuz it’s not! 😉
Just be YOU! And thanks to our partnership with Beachbody we don’t need to be fitness, nutrition, or business experts (of course you can be any and all those things if you want…but it’s not required!). And just be REAL when people ask you questions. When someone asks me what I think about Greenberry Shakeology I’ll say, “Well…it’s not my personal favorite but my friend LOVES it with crushed pineapple!” People gravitate towards honesty and authenticity and can tell if you’re just trying to sell them something.
BOTTOM LINE: If you’re using the products and getting results, it will be a lot easier to talk to people about what you’re doing because it will just be a natural part of the conversation.
