How Can I Be The First To Get Cize?!!

The release of CIZE is almost here!!!

This is going to be HOT HOT HOT!!! I have been getting a ton of questions on WHERE and WHEN people can purchase CIZE!!!!  I know everyone is so excited but I’m even more excited to tell you that we are 5 days away from the launch of Beachbody’s newest fitness program CIZE!!

WHO IS CIZE FOR?  
Everyone!! I promise you- even if you CAN’T DANCE… this is still the program for you!! I am NOT A DANCER! I WISH I was! I am just rhythm challenged, but I could still do this program because it is all broken down and Shaun T makes it fun! The best TIP for you- try your best and forget the rest! HAVE FUN!! I’m actually confident that by doing this program over and over a few times that I might actually learn to be a good dancer 😉 

Friends Cizing It Up Together! FUNNY STUFF!  LOL


WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS PROGRAM? 
I have to say that this workout is an instant mood booster, it is meant for people who want to workout but don’t want to feel like they are working out!  It’s a fun workout that is broken down into steps for the any “dancer” at any level.  It’s not about the crazy push ups and diamond jumps… its about focusing on the beat and getting into the moves.  The beat moves you to the results that you want.

The workouts range from 35-40 minutes in length and the program is 4 weeks long but you can definitely extend it as you are learning the moves.  Cize is choreographed to the latest pop music that Shaun T has picked out.

So since I had the opportunity to be a part of the Cize Coach Test Group which was a lot of fun and I truly enjoyed laughing at myself on a daily basis!!!  I absolutely am thankful that I get to do this workout in the comfort of my own home because I am definitely that girl that thinks she can dance but when I catch a glimpse in the mirror I can see otherwise!!!

The nutrition plan is easy to follow and it uses the portion controlled container system to help you with nailing the portion sizes!  I have created 4 meal plans over the past 4 weeks that are specific to Cize that I am going to share in my upcoming Launch Group!

I am going to walk you through each workout, teach you how to make modifications, guide you through the program guide to make sure that you are doing the program correctly and my goal is to help you stay motivated, connected, supported and to give you recipes, tips and ideas so that you can truly get the most from the program!

Wow- What a Journey This Two Years Has Been!

This is by far one of the most emotional posts I’ve ever done. Feelings of PURE JOY, feelings of anxiety and fear over what people might think or say, feelings of OVERWHELM because never in my life did I think I alone would earn this kind of money by doing a job that I would literally do for FREE. Going from a stay at home mom for 7 years to a woman who set out to earn just a little extra cash to help put groceries on the table… This has become my REALITY in 23 months.

I realized this after almost NOT posting it.

If I don’t talk about it…
If I don’t show you…
You’d have NO IDEA that this is available to YOU too.
I believe if I DIDN’T SHOW you that I am doing YOU a disservice because this is not about the money– these numbers represent LIVES CHANGED. This is less than 2 years of dedication to be a servant leader and how I started— was committing to change myself.

This post is not to brag. Gosh- it has take me almost two years to even consider doing this! It is SO HARD for me to talk about money. I used to joke to my hubby {seriously JOKE around}- that one day I would make more money than he did. I planned to always be a stay at home mom/home maker– so that was always the JOKE- because we know that as mom’s we SHOULD get paid a lot 😉 but we don’t!!

Let me start by saying this:

1. I started this business with less than 140 fb friends. No social media background. I was a SKEPTIC and it took a waived sign up fee to get me to finally ‘pull the trigger’ and do this.
2. I built this from my kitchen table- early in the morning right after my workouts until my kids woke up. Then during quiet/nap time and then after they went to bed. I have never missed family time and I decide when I work.
3. I built this business with passion. I built this business with MANY failures. I built this business while LIVING OUTSIDE OF MY COMFORT ZONE! I built this business while CHANGING into a better person everyday.
4. I could have make MANY excuses why I should have just quit. Stopped. Not kept going when I got knocked down. I don’t have an upline who helps contribute to my business center. I have built my ENTIRE organization MYSELF. I am BLESSED that God has given me the opportunity- I have had a VISION since the day I started and I am NEVER going to quit.
What is the one thing I think has made the biggest impact?

Consistency… through the times when others would have quit is WHY I am where I am.

Let’s break it down.

I have my background in Sports Management with a concentration in Health and Wellness {Ironic that I am now a Health and Wellness Coach and I don’t even need my Bachelor’s Degree for it 😉 }

I have only ever been a student (it took me 8 years to get my bachelor’s degree… yep. I’m that girl) and a wife/stay at home mom! I’ve never had a ‘real’ full time job in my life.

I had tried like every home business ever. –I was going to make it BIG selling Cutco knives when I was 19 (yeah. right.) I have done the whole Mary Kay thing- 31 Bags- Avon and gosh– i think one of those skincare things for like a day… I HAD NO PASSION FOR ANY OF THOSE!!

2 years ago- my husband and I had a hard reality hit- we were STRUGGLING financially– which in turn meant had our marriage on the rocks… big time. We sold my car and went to one vehicle, we started to downsize with what we could and I was looking for a job because we were scared we were going to have to file bankruptcy…

Then- this ‘coaching opportunity’ came up… and well. The rest is history.  I made a CHOICE to create a future for my kids that we could only dream of. Now- the dreams are becoming reality.

With coaching — I jumped in BELIEF first. I learned. I failed. I grew. I failed. I kept going.

My job is to help others achieve:

CONFIDENCE.
HAPPINESS.
HEALTH.
WELLNESS.
LOVE FOR THEMSELVES.
LOVE FOR OTHERS.
FINANCIAL FREEDOM.
AND SO MUCH MORE.

Who can do this job?

ANYONE. Let me say that again.
ANYONE.

Anyone who is okay with being WEIRD like me. Anyone who is okay with going into the unknown and just diving in. head first. and building wings on the way down.
ANYONE WHO WANTS TO CHANGE MORE THAN THEY WANT TO STAY THE SAME!! That’s all it takes. A FIRE in your belly to do something MORE.

It takes time. It takes consistency. It take vision. It takes believe. It takes OVERCOMING FEAR. It takes raising some eyebrows. It takes confidence. It takes patience.
This is a MARATHON. NEVER a SPRINT.

I create a system of duplication. I teach every one of my coaches HOW to do this. I have tested these systems and they are PROVEN to WORK when YOU do the work. I set goals and created benchmarks to achieve those goals. I teach my team the same thing.

So WHY am I posting this? Why now?

Because I want to PAY IT FORWARD. I WANT to encourage and shine light for anyone- but my goal.. if I can inspire ONE PERSON- then this post will be worth it!
Because it’s my sincere hope that you take a deep breath and say “Why NOT me?” Why not go for it? Why not triple my income? Why not go for paid for vacations? Why not begin a business that could blossom into financial freedom for myself and family? Why not do the thing that most won’t? Why not be my own boss and make my own hours.

The ROAD to success is filled with LOTS of obstacles. It is NOT a straight line. It is crazy windy, twirly, ups, downs, overs and unders. It does NOT come easy. It comes with work.

Thinking about it? Wondering about it? Let me know, I’d be more than happy to share all the details with anyone. It changed my life and it can SURE as HECK change yours!
Complete the application to join my next online coach training that begins on May 4th. I will be working with 10 people who are ready to go all in.

Fill out the application to be considered for a spot on my team- Legacy United

3 TYPES OF BEACHBODY COACHES

3 TYPES OF BEACHBODY COACHES

I think of my team as my FAMILY! I am INCREDIBLY passionate about Beachbody & helping others live up to their FULLEST potential! I know firsthand how incredible this opportunity can be! Not only am I 150% dedicated to your success…but we have an AMAZING team of leaders ready to share wisdom, advice and guide you at YOUR pace!
You walk – I walk. You run – I run. You sprint – I sprint!
We SHARE ideas. We HELP one another. We SHARE our failures & encourage one another to keep going.

It’s important to keep in mind that not all coaches have the same goals.
Not everyone wants to be a full time coach or be their own boss. There is nothing wrong with signing up a DISCOUNT COACH… (that is, until you try and treat them like a BUSINESS BUILDER!) 

As a coach, we want to make sure we focus on WHAT OTHERS WANT and not what WE want…

Instead of making an assumption about their goals…LAY OUT THEIR OPTIONS TO THEM when they become a new coach so that you know how to best mentor them!

There are basically 3 types of coaches who join Beachbody

  •  “Preferred customers” Who just want the awesome discount.
  • “Wait & see” They want to work on your transformation 1st & then think about sharing their results and helping others OR they just want to do this as a HOBBY
  • “Full Steam Ahead” They are ready to build this business and start changing lives!

Their needs & goals can change over time. I actually signed up as a coach for the discount & accountability but eventually decided to share my results and build my Beachbody business

Not yet a coach, but want to join?


Apply below to see if I am the right fit as your mentor! 

There are tons of Wufoo features to help make your forms awesome.
