What is Beachbody?
A: Beachbody is the creator of the nation’s most popular fitness and weight loss solutions including P90X, 80 Day Obsession, PiYo, LIIFT4, Shakeology, and Beachbody Performance. With a comprehensive approach that combines fitness, nutrition, and support, they created a complete solution for people who want to transform their lives, physically and mentally. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, or just learn more about nutrition and exercise, Beachbody has programs, products, and content to help you accomplish those goals. Beachbody’s purpose is to help people achieve their goals and enjoy a healthy, fulfilling life.
What is a Beachbody Coach?
A: That’s me. I’ve been a Beachbody coach since 2014 because I want to help people live a healthy lifestyle and I believe Beachbody products are well suited to help. My role is to encourage people like you to make healthy choices and reap the benefits of doing so. By reaching out to help others in this way I get to do something that I enjoy, it helps me be accountable for my own healthy lifestyle, and it offers me the opportunity to make some money doing what I already do anyway.
What is a Team Quadzilla Challenge Group?
A: We regularly host “virtual” fitness & nutrition accountability groups either on social media or my favorite “pocket accountability partner,” the Beachbody Challenge Tracker phone app. Together we commit to hold each other accountable to stick to healthy choices for the duration of the challenge – usually 30-60 days. In the private group we share encouragement, healthy eating tips and advice, motivation to press on when the going gets tough, and strategies to defeat the common obstacles to achieving healthy living goals. Everyone’s goals will be different, but my hope is that healthy habits will be formed, body fat will be lost, energy, confidence, muscle, and fortitude will be gained, and we’ll all be encouraged by our success so much that we’ll keep right on going with healthy eating and regular exercise.
What is 90/10 Nutrition?
A: Our go-to healthy eating resource is 90/10 Nutrition. I first learned about 90/10 in 2015 and it has since completely changed the way I eat. Their healthy eating philosophy is simple and straightforward. There is no calorie counting or restrictions. They provide free video training through the 90/10 Academy. 90/10 Nutrition offers nearly 1,000 healthy recipes, an active online community, a meal planner and shopping list generator, and a blog with tons of helpful information about healthy eating. Their mission is to help you change the way you look at food so that healthy, real food nutrition becomes the way you eat forever. Full disclosure: I receive a small commission from paid memberships to the 90/10 Nutrition program. I wouldn’t be their ambassador if I didn’t fully believe in their program.
How do I choose a workout regimen?
A: I’ll answer with another question. What do you like to do? Whatever physical activity you like to do is probably the easiest thing you can choose to start with. If you have workout videos at home already, I recommend dusting them off and trying that. You don’t have to go to a gym to workout. I don’t. Angie & I do Beachbody workouts 4-5 days a week with our Beachbody On Demand service that gives us access to ALL their programs. Having a world-class super trainer on screen and in our ear each morning is really encouraging and motivating. I can help you pick a program that suits you. I promise there is a plan for you and it will help you get fit, strong, flexible, and lose weight. Workout videos not your thing? That’s OK too. I will help you create a plan from my stock of Quadzilla Fitness Challenges or a specific training plan to suit your needs. Just ask!
Do I have to buy anything to part of Team Quadzilla?
A: NO. Absolutely not. Team Quadzilla Challenge Groups are free to join. I truly want to be an encouragement to form healthy habits and help you meet your goals for fitness, nutrition, weight loss, event training, personal development, whatever! Subscribing to my blog or monthly newsletter is free also. If you are interested in healthy living content for your body, mind, and soul then you could benefit from joining Team Quadzilla.
Isn’t Team Quadzilla just your “front” to get me to buy Beachbody stuff from you?
A: Sheesh! Fair question though. Honestly, NO. It is true that as a Beachbody Coach I get credit for the Beachbody products purchased through me as your coach, but making money from Beachbody is not my primary purpose. Regardless of what you buy from Beachbody, the credit will go to some coach – that’s how the Beachbody business works. If you are going to buy from Beachbody, I would appreciate if you enlist me as your coach. There are no strings attached. I’m not going to hassle you about buying anything and I won’t even bother you about coaching or encouragement if you don’t want me to. Through the course of working together through Team Quadzilla, you will likely learn about some Beachbody offerings that may help you on your healthy living journey. You will also learn about marriage, relationships, healthy habits, personal development, and Jesus. Team Quadzilla aims to work on our whole self, not just physical fitness.
OK, I’m in. What do I do now?
A: Please send me a private FB message or email me to let me know your interest. I’ll ask you about your healthy living goals, as well as your obstacles to achieving them. After all, you can’t be held accountable for something you don’t define! I’ll connect you with the resources that I think would help you and get you involved in an appropriate challenge group. Taking action is up to you of course, but I’ll be by your side throughout your healthy living journey to encourage, inspire, hold you accountable, kick you in the pants when you need it, etc.
