I am Team Beachbody
You may have seen the movement called, “I am Team Beachbody” BLOWING up your instagram, snapchat, and Facebook newsfeed over the past week and so I wanted to give you a little background on this movement and WHY you will see Team Beachbody Coaches doing this. My friend and fellow Beachbody Coach Cab member shared what she was doing to build team culture with the #iamteambeachbody on the stories of WHY coaches are doing what they are doing and we are showing the world what we stand for. She shared with us,
“When Becky and I started building our Team way back when and realized that building culture and unity was the way to WIN at this business, we would do these social media blast days where our entire team was encouraged to post on a specific topic – i.e. What Shakeology does for them. Why they Coach. etc. It was so fun, got lots of attention, and empowered new Coaches to share share share.TODAY we brought it back and are doing a I AM TEAM BEACHBODY campaign and flooding social media with WHY we are TBB Coaches. It’s already started and its our way of saying WE ARE STRONGER THAN EVER! Let’s take back the attention and showcase WHY we are the most special.”
MY invite to YOU today is to JOIN us in flooding the world with Why I am Team Beachbody coach posts
Here is my #IAMTEAMBEACHBODY post along with just a few from our team. Feel free to search the hashtag on instagram and Facebook to read and be inspired by thousands of stories
It was April 11th 2011, 18 days after the birth of our 3rd daughter Elina that I was sitting in a cubicle before work started, going through our mail. I opened the hospital bill, the Baby Doctor bill, the Anesthesiologist bill, and a few others.
I was working 10-12 hours a day and Gabby worked nights. But she was home with the new baby and we had to make that decision.
Does she go back? Do I get another job ? Do we pay more for a baby sitter for 3 kids now?
I remember this day as if it was yesterday and I was spinning. I felt like I was drowning and I was afraid.
I am grateful for that day because it’s the day that my fear of knowing how to take care of my family became greater than my fear of failing as a Team Beachbody coach and so I joined Team Beachbody after playing with the idea for 8 months. The programs CHANGED my life and helped me lose 38lbs!
I had no smart phone. No internet in my home. No laptop. No extra money to sign up and what would seem like no spare time. What I did have was a HUGE REASON or WHY.
🔥🔥🔥🔥I would do whatever it took to bring my wife home from work and not have to take every overtime hour available just to “make it”🔥🔥🔥🔥
I realized this was my calling in life 8 months into my journey. I had been home sick with the “man cold” for 3 days. It was a Friday afternoon and my wife said to me, “Scottie” you should go get Kina from the school bus, it will help you feel better to get out”
I showered, got dressed, and started walking tword the bus stop. I was half way down the cup-da-sac when the bus pulled up and came to a stop. The doors opened and these two little hands of a 5 year old girl grabbed the handrails and looked up to see her Daddy. She smiled bigger than I had ever seen and it immediately brought me to tears. How many moments like this had I missed? How many would I continue to miss if I don’t change our situation. It was that afternoon that I was called to a greater purpose. I realized that I too, wanted to work from home and never miss another day of their lives. I also realized that if this ex-drug Addict and college dropout could do it, I could inspire and motivate others as well to accomplish whatever it is that they want out of their lives.
Today I feel blessed without fear and working from home, as we continue to build our legacy with heart led passionate people and a company built on integrity. I AM TEAM BEACHBODY
Five years ago I made the choice to live outside of ME.
You see, I had this mental struggle going on. I had lost 35 lbs by doing P90X & drinking Shakeology & eating clean.
> Part of me wanted to shout it from the rooftops! 🗣 People were asking me what I was doing and I WANTED to spread the good news.
> Part of me was thinking, why does it matter if I share what has worked for me? If someone wants to change their life and get healthy they will, they don’t need me, they will figure it out on their own.
I listened to that second voice for 4 1/2 months. 😞
But then I was humbled, in a big way. 💡 I was reading a talk from one of my church leaders where he shared HIS hesitations being called as a General Authority for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He said he felt so unqualified because his family growing up wasn’t active in the church. But how he had come to realize it was BECAUSE of that experience growing up that he was called to this position, not in spite of it.
Chills went up my body. ⚡️And I KNEW, God was speaking to me about this opportunity.
That laundry list of excuses I was giving myself NOT to do this? I was being guided to this position BECAUSE of my experiences, not in spite of them. I •had• to do this.
In that moment I KNEW, like KNEW with every fiber of my being, that there were people God wanted ME to help, people that NO ONE ELSE could reach. It was the most overwhelming all encompassing feeling.
The idea of someone not getting THEIR chance for a better healthier life because I was too selfish & scared to open my mouth was too much for me to handle.
I bargained with God. “Okay, I’ll do this. But if you want me to do this and help certain people you BETTER help me out every step of the way.” Pretty bold on my part 😳…. but God has done just that. 💫
I coach. I help people. I show them products that are the BEST products out there, comparable to NONE. Products that legitimately CHANGE people’s lives and add legit value. And I get to know my clients & coaches so I can show them how to move past the roadblocks in their life & get to THEIR true self; the person God created them to be.
#IAmTeamBeachbody. And every aspect of MY life is forever changed for the better because of it; along with countless others.
It’s humbling, fulfilling, & rewarding. Not many jobs can be described in that way. 😉 SO SO GRATEFUL. 🙏🏼
I have options. I could sell MANY products and represent many companies. I use products from other direct sales companies. So why did I choose Beachbody?
💙 I wanted to make a bigger impact with customers and not just sale and move on to the next. Personally I love coaching because my job starts when someone orders. I get to help them reach their goals and see them transform through my challenge groups. I love being a part of that process that literally changes lives. The products work so well and so I’m there to help someone see it though and get their health back. Because health is so important to ALL of us!
💙 I love that I’m not having to store products, host parties or classes, or ship products to people. Personally that amount of busy work never appealed to me. I know some love it but I’m way happier to let Beachbody handle all that stuff. It gives me more freedom with my TIME!
💙 Beachbody’s compensation plan is ridiculously lucrative without having to be super retail heavy. I don’t have to sell mass amounts of shakeology or fitness programs to make a living. The network marketing structure is such that when one of us succeeds on my team, we all do. And so pretty quickly Beachbody changed my life financially and has continued to be very stable upward growth of residual income. That’s been invaluable at times when I had to step back from lots of sales to take care of other priorities. LIFE CHANGING!
💙And my favorite part? It’s changed ME. Who I am has come out to shine!!! And I’ve made the most amazing friends EVER! People who uplift and inspire and collaborate with me. In my own personal development I’ve grown leaps and bounds. Ya, I’ve had to or else I wouldn’t have had any success! In order to step up for other’s, I had to step up for myself first. Talk about ultimate accountability! I’ve learned to make my emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health my top priority.
So there you have it! Those are my main reasons. And I have three more reasons named Travis, Alma, and Holden. ❤️❤️❤️ And ya, I could totally continue on but I’ll just leave it at this. I bleed Beachbody BLUE and am forever grateful God brought this into my life!!!!

The photo on the left is just over a year ago. That was me, 5ft 6, 178 pounds and unhappy with myself!
Life before my journey is one probably not much difference than a lot of you guys. I had a pretty normal childhood. I was a pretty active kid, football,baseball,wrestling, track and field. I have never been confident in myself. Always trying to fit in, never really knew who I was. This was me all thru Jr high and high school.
After high school all I did worked, never finished college, just worked. Thats what i thought i was supposed to do. I worked a bunch of jobs, parts countryman, journeyman heating tech, construction, copy machine delivery and set Up, masonry, and currently automotive tech. I’ve always had a good work ethic, never afraid of hard work.
I saw my best friend Scottie Hobbs doing this beachbody thing. Yes he came to me with it not long after he started. Like most people I thought no way I am not getting into the pyramid scheme. I told him no, and to be honest I blocked him and did not want to see his success.
Fast forward 4 years cause nothing changed in the 4 years between his first invite to me.. one day I unblocked Scottie, and sent him a message. Simply put all the message said was I need help. A week later we were having lunch and talking about goals and reconnecting. Honestly the day that changed my families life. I left that lunch still confused and wondering what to do. Our family is not making a lot of money. So I had to figure it out, luckily I have a great coach and friend. He wanted to show me I could do the programs and that they worked. He and his wife Gabby Sanabria Hobbs let us barrow the 21 day fix extreme, and the weights we would need. So me and my wife started right away. I was down 30 pounds in the first round we did. We did 2 more rounds and I had great results. Total I lost 42 pounds and went from 36 waist to a 28 inch waist.
So September of 2015 i signed up as a coach. I made the budget work to afford it. Yea it took sacrifices, and it was not easy. We made it work, when it comes down to our health we need to make sacrifices. Hey if you don’t have your health then what do Have?
I am never gonna quit. It’s a journey not a race, and it’s my race I have control of it. That’s why #IAMTEAMBEACHBODY
