Many of you may or may not know my journey, I have made a blog post for every year that I have been a Team Beachbody Coach.
A Journey that started for me with a 70lb weight-loss, weight gained during 2 pregnancies. My journey became inspiring for those around me, and people that I shared my story with. So to make a long story short, I made the choice 4 years ago this month (September 2014) to become an official Team Beachbody Coach and to help others realize their potential and live a healthy life… Not to have a Beachbody but to strive to LIVE as healthy as they can be, and if they wanted a Beachbody that if they set their mind to it they could have it.
You can read my 1st, 2nd and 3rd year blog posts here….. http://www.hillarykellyfitness.com/my-first-year-as-a-beachbody-coach-what-a-ride/
When I was 225lbs, and even as a kid, I was the chubby one.. getting picked on in school. I always fought my weight, and always thought… NO that would never be me. I told myself that I would never be a “SKINNY GIRL” . Looking back know, it was the excuses I told myself, like I am big-boned, or it is in my genes… I told myself I could never be a size 6…. BUT…. it was all lies I told me.
Thanks to Beachbody I found much more than a 70lb weight-loss…. I FOUND ME.
After having 2 children and being a stay at home mom, I remember feeling lost in who I was…. I was just the MOM, feeling as though I had lost myself… Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE my boys, they are my life… But I think us Mom’s put everyone in front of us.
I had lost confidence in myself, being overweight… and was tired. Losing weight was just the beginning of getting ME back, it taught me that I could do anything I could set my mind to, if I just BELIEVED I COULD.
There are many successful Coaches in Beachbody who work just as hard as I do, and maybe even earn more…. But I know my journey and what is possible so I won’t and DON’ T compare myself to others AT ALL.
This past 4 years I have learned that my success depended on me helping other people succeed. Whether it was through losing weight, or being healthier, to Financial freedom.
Before having kids, way back when my jobs consisted of MASTER SCUBA DIVER TRAINER, waitress, & Restaurant manager…. I remember always thinking I was meant to do something important, yet I wasn’t quite sure what it was. I loved all my jobs…. and NO, I NEVER went to college.
I always felt that there was something I could do that had a purpose, but never really knew what that was. That purpose was to help others. Everything in my life has led me here, and I wouldn’t take back 1 single bit of it, mistakes, struggles, the whole enchilada.
Just before becoming a Coach and starting my coaching business, we filed for bankruptcy, after that I think I was at the bottom… frustrated and not knowing what I could do to get life back for our kids. So when I joined as a coach, it wasn’t to become a MILLION DOLLAR EARNER, or a TOP COACH, it was to help with the groceries, and maybe help pay the mortgage. And maybe, just maybe build a business that I could remain at home with my 2 boys, I couldn’t bear the thought of having to go back and work in a restaurant, I would never see them.
That was my reason for starting…. It felt right… And wanting to help people see that they could lose weight, that they could do it, if ME…. The person who at one time had all the excuses could do it… They sure as heck could do it.
So here I am 4 years later…… When I started this year in January 2013, I had achieved TOP 10 Coach for the 3rd time, The first coach EVER to do this 3 years in a row… and went on an amazing reward trip to Argentina.
My 3rd trip around the world, my first year a bike trip in France, then Tahiti….. Argentina/Uraguay another 5 Star adventure on the other side of the world.
We took that trip in February, with the other Top 10 coaches and Beachbody Corp Guys and their families, whom I have gotten to know these past 4 years on these amazing trips and consider them my family to. From Tango lessons, Horse back riding, polo matches, to biking through streets of Buenos Aires, to hiking the Falls of IGUAZU….. The Top Coach trips NEVER disappoint, but what I take back the most is being with people who are driven to succeed and help others… People just like me. One thing I never expected from becoming a coach was finding people like me, and making some of my best friends.
My Focus wasn’t to be a TOP Coach, it was to help my Team be the best they can be… It is about them and this business always has been about helping others.
My greatest reward has been watching people on my Team see success, getting out of debt and watching them grow their business and earn rewards.
My team is over 6,000 strong… a Team that started with just ME, I am a “Weak Leg” or a dead spot Coach as they say… But never occurred to me, I just worked my business. Some people will take that as they can’t succeed and give up, but I am proof that if you want to succeed, you work and you create your success, no one can lose weight for you, no one can create financial freedom for you… But I can do my part and show you the way.
The Reason I am a Million Dollar Earner, The reason I am a TOP Coach is because of my amazing Team, with amazing leaders…. Too many to name, my TOP Coaches, Kelly Nieforth, Charity Brooks, Erin Scott, Heather Coy, Terri Cruce, all people like you….. and so many more are changing peoples lives and paying it forward and helping me to build this amazing business.
When Coaches are texting me weekly telling me that they have gotten their biggest check yet… I know I am doing my job…. I work hard to show them what they can to and I work super hard to give them all the tools they need to be successful and teach their teams to do the same.
It isn’t about the money…. I share what is possible if you BELIEVE you can…. I am proof and my Team is proof…. I focus on helping people see their potential, and that they can take control of their life. beachbody coaching has to be simply the best opportunity there is.
I see people, successful people buying fancy cars, and purses, extravagant gifts… It just isn’t me… I am creating a future for my team… a SOLID future for my boys, and showing my team to do the same. Flash gets you only so far…
I am just a girl from a small town, who decided to reach out and show people what they are capable of… I get goosebumps to see where 4 years have taken me and my team, and I get chills when I think of where it will be in even a year or 2. I am not stopping and I know my team will not either.
Having over 250 of my team with me at Coach Summit was SURREAL…. 4 years ago I attended with just 5 people on my team… My Team came out and represented in Team On FIRE RED
It was amazing to see….. I am so proud of them all.
So it comes down to something I have done for the past 3 years…. I share what my weekly check is so you can see just what is possible from start to just 4 years of working.
I post this so you can see what is possible if you stay committed and work hard.. This opportunity has forever changed my life, and has allowed things for my family I never thought possible, the greatest reward is knowing that the reason I earn what I earn is because of the team succeeding with me. You can do this business alone.
I am so proud of TEAM ON FIRE…. they is no stopping us.
I now have 3 business Centers that I am growing. So I can share with you.
