I started with Brytnee as a challenger in June of 2015, doing PiYo. I really had no idea what I was doing and I couldn’t do most of the moves but I pushed through anyway. Drinking Shakeology® became a daily habit quickly as I started seeing positive changes as a result.
Brytnee had asked me several times about becoming a coach but I always told her no. I’d been a part of many multi-level marketing companies and I just wasn’t interested in doing it again. However, when she presented me with the facts of how much I would save on my own order of Shakeology® I bit the bullet and jumped in, as a “discount coach.” I wasn’t interested in getting customers, I just wanted the discount.
After attending Summit 2017, I decided to go all in. I saw first-hand the mission of this company which is “Help people achieve their goals and live a healthy, fulfilling life,” and I wholeheartedly agreed with it. I had become a personal trainer for very similar reasons. The biggest difference I have personally felt going from consumer to coach is the accountability. As a coach, you hold yourself to a higher level of accountability and I have seen the difference that makes in my own fitness journey.
Helping others start, get back on or stay on track with their own health and fitness is very rewarding. To see one of my clients be able to do something they couldn’t do before is priceless.
While I may not have initially signed up as a coach to actually coach, I am very grateful I was given this opportunity and that I took advantage of it!
