1. With the 25% coaches discount, your savings on products more than make up for the $14.95 monthly fee. For example, if you purchase vitamins (Activit, Omega 3, Calcium), supplements (P90X Recovery and Results Formula or whey protein) and/or use Shakeology, the discount on that more than makes up for the $14.95.
2. You really DO change lives. It is so rewarding to help people help themselves. Sometimes you have to believe in them before they believe in themselves, but once they see results–it is fantastic!
3. Nothing will do more for your own motivation than becoming a coach. When you put yourself in the position of being a role model, you WANT to be that person. It is another great way to hold yourself accountable.
Even if you are just starting your fitness journey, you will see yourself as being healthier because you are a fitness coach. Other people will notice that you are putting in an effort and making a lifestyle change. Whether you have lost 5 pounds or 105 pounds, friends and family will look at the effort you are making at becoming a healthy role model and respect you for that.
A mistake some people make is that they think “I can’t be a coach because I haven’t lost much weight yet.” Many people will relate to you just the way you are. Most people struggle to push play and eat healthfully. People will look up to you precisely because you are in the same shoes that they are, but you are taking control and doing something about it.
Because you have chosen to become a coach, your own fitness results will become better than you’ve ever seen before!! People don’t often write about this benefit of coaching, but we guarantee, it is real!
