*CELEBRATING TWO YEARS WITH BEACHBODY*
It’s crazy to think that just two years ago I was first introduced to Beachbody. It was July 4th, I found some of the Insanity workouts online (shh! don’t tell anyone) and would play the workouts on my laptop. I quickly realized two things:
1. I was not in NEARLY as good shape as I thought.
2. This is AWESOME
So, on and off I would do the programs, mixing in my regular routine, diet was the same.
I remember complaining of lower back pain to my baseball teammate Sean Grove – his response,
“Dude, you need to try this. It’s awesome. ” And so I became a Beachbody customer in September 2013, hopping right in to Insanity: Asylum Sports Conditioning.
Little did I know how one program could transform my body. Clean eating, exercise, nutrition, and making sure I stayed on track was the key.
Physically, I felt better than I ever had in my life and I wanted to start sharing that with people. So, between my full-time job as a pediatric dentist, between office hours and surgeries, I started reading up on the company, the business model, the mission, the BIG PICTURE.
Before moving to Louisville and opening my pediatric dental practice in Southern Indiana, I have to admit, I would look at the overweight populations in America and blame them.
Blame them because they should be eating better and exercising more. Bitch to people about ‘what this person should do and that person should do’. How foolish I was. You see, when you live in a big city, and life is moving pretty fast around you, it’s hard to stop and look within yourself to assess your own happiness.
The pace of life forces your brain to adjust constantly to its surroundings so people never really get a chance to truly develop into a better person. It’s just go, go, go.
You have a job, kids, work some more, your personality is your personality..and that’s just the way it is. Some people are happy, some are not.
But are they truly FULFILLED?
The families that I meet in Southern Indiana are quite different. Faith is a HUGE part of people’s lives. It brings together the community.
It encourages interaction among like-minded people.
Faith in something greater gives meaning and purpose to their lives.
Yet still I am seeing more and more parents that just seem overwhelmed with life.
Children that are seeking direction and a ‘path to happiness’; parents that want the best for their kids…yet seem increasingly frustrated because what they are doing isn’t working.
So what’s the missing piece?
The missing piece is that people need to find a deep reason to change.
If you surround yourself with positive thinking people EVERYDAY, your mind will open up to the ideas and principles of positivity.
People are looking to get healthy. Many try. But few succeed. Life gets in the way and it’s right back to where you started. So I show people that they are making it too hard on themselves. Stop trying to change and just immerse yourself in the ideas and principles of what you WANT TO BE.
Just by being a Beachbody coach and surrounding myself with all these positive thinking people, listening to monday morning wakeup calls, discussions with other coaches, helping people change their lives, reading personal development around my busy schedule, putting an audio of personal growth in my car while driving to my busy job – I am creating my own destiny around my busy life.
THATS HOW I CHANGED MY LIFE. Now, by PAYING IT FORWARD and helping all these amazing men, women and children in the community that I live… by saving their lives….I can’t put into words how grateful I am.
It’s time to stop complaining about all the stuff in this world that’s wrong….and start focusing on what’s right.
Team Beachbody empowers people to NEVER GIVE UP. It aims to bring together communities to help people lead healthy, fulfilling lives. We live our lives according to principles and values stated in the Bible (or Koran or Torah. Why do we believe in it? We accept it as truth and the proven way to live our life.
Without the Bible, many people would lack the direction needed to live a worthy life.
It’s the same thing with Beachbody ( as ridiculous as that sounds). The structure and written materials provide SIMPLE, PROVEN ways to empower yourself one day at time, to lead a healthy,fulfilling life.
Imagine a world where your income (part time or full time) is a DIRECT reflection of people’s lives you help change. A DIRECT reflection of how many people you’ve told to NEVER GIVE UP. The more I say that to myself the easier it gets to work it around my busy work and my busy life. It really is the complete solution and it’s not a gimmick and it’s not a joke.
You get ONE life to live.
Are you going to look back on your life and be proud of what you’ve done? You may not have children and may not care about 99% of the world up to this point…but there is one thing common to all of us. Helping yourself feels good. However, helping others and receiving gratitude in return feels 10 x better.
In lieu of this 4th of July weekend, FREE YOURSELF from your past and live TODAY.
