Where I'm Going From Here with My Health and Fitness Plan

Thanks again to our thoughtful daughter, Liz Brown, for giving me for Christmas a renewal to The Oprah Magazine subscription. As she said, she likes to know we’re reading the same thing each month!

Starting with the cover of the January, 2012 issue, Dr. Oz is quoted as saying, “Every person has the right to look and feel like a million bucks!.” Inside the article, Oprah Talks to Dr. Oz, he says, “We need a wholesale reevaluation of what health feels like. Most people don’t even know what that feels like anymore.”

I know I had become complacent about my health. My cholesterol medication was keeping my numbers in check and most of my clothes still fit. I was satisfied. What I’ve learned in the past year, since becoming a Team Beachbody Coach, is that through improved nutrition and daily workouts, I can feel a whole lot better, control my cholesterol through diet and exercise, and upgrade my wardrobe as I get slimmer and stronger.

My plan for 2012 is to continue to drink Shakeology each day for lunch. I can’t wait to try the new 100% Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology, which will be available as of February 14th.

I’ve made great physical conditioning strides through daily Slim in 6 workouts. By late February, Bruce and I plan to begin the new Team Beachbody Tai Cheng program, a progressive program built on the fundamentals of Tai-Chi and Qi Gong, ancient wellness arts that focus on improved mobility, strength, muscle tone, and balance.

And we can workout wearing the new Team Beachbody apparel!

Thanks to Team Beachbody, every day I’m feeling closer to a million bucks (and it’s also nice to see our bank account growing with our year-old business!). Team Beachbody is fulfilling on its promise to help us get physically and financially fit.

I look forward to inspiring more and more people to experience the feeling of being healthy again. We have a massive course correction to make in our society. It’s well worth the effort, because being physically and financially fit causes more positive ripple effects in all aspects of one’s life.

Thanks, Team Beachbody for allowing me this opportunity to help myself and many others achieve our goals and life happy, fulfilling lives! Let's all feel like a million bucks!

My Team Beachbody Top 10 List - What I Like Best About This Company!

The longer I'm involved with Beachbody as a Team Beachbody Coach, the more impressed I am with this company.

Here's my Top 10 List of what I like best about Team Beachbody:

1. Once you reach Emerald status, the company gives you customers. Since joining Team Beachbody in January, 2011, I have been given over 100 customers by the company. They automatically assign these folks to me in my back office and I earn 25% commission on all future orders made by these folks. What other MLM company gives customers to their distributors?

2. I've sampled many Beachbody home fitness programs and nutritional products, such as Shakeology, Slim in 6, P90X Protein bars, and feel I can totally stand behind the quality of their products.

3. As a coach, I have access to extremely high quality third-party tools, including videos, CDs, downloadable audio and text files, training modules, teleconference calls, and social media pages to share with prospects.

4. Team Beachbody attracts high-caliber people who truly want to help people take charge of their nutrition and fitness, from the CEO, Carl Daikeler, his support staff and our fellow team members.

5. Team Beachbody's P90X workout program has an astounding 86% brand recognition due to it popularity and the plethora of infomercials run on all Beachbody's products each week, totally about 240 hours.

6. We can offer our customers the opportunity to receive financial rewards just for working out through The Team Beachbody Challenge. In 2011, Beachbody gave away over $65 million in rewards, trips, and incentives to support its quest to end the trend of obesity.

7. Team Beachbody's Challenge Programs and economical Challenge Packs are designed to support their winning success formula:
Nutrition + Fitness + Peer Support + Financial Rewards = Success.

8. Timing is everything and Team Beachbody is poised with the right products, the right programs, and the right people at the right time to achieve their mission of attracting 1,000,000 coaches in the U.S. in the next 10 years to end the trend of obesity. If something isn't done to stop this growing trend in adults and children, our country will have an out-of-control health care crisis.

9. Team Beachbody provides a 30-day money-back guarantee on all its products, including agreement to become a Team Beachbody Coach.

10. Last, but not least, we work with a team that support our success. We're lucky to be on the Ultimate Fitness Team in Team Beachbody, the fastest growing MLM team in the company.
