[0:00:10.5] KC: Welcome to the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan. I am a Team Beachbody Coach, my wife and I have been coaching for about five years as of the recording of this and about three and a half years in, we were inducted into the Beachbody Millionaire’s Club. I’m a three time elite coach, have over 23,000 coaches on my team, on my down line and we also have over 20 five star and above coaches.

I’m also the host of the podcast, All About the Business of Life, that’s our mothership podcast helping people to identify, create, and eventually realize the life they love to live. So that’s All About the Business of Life is our sister podcast and today before we get started, I just want to go through two quick things.

The first, at the end of today’s episode, I’m going to talk in detail about a free PDF download. You really want to make sure you download this. It’s a snapshot of 50 coaches and just talking about who they are, what they like about Beachbody, the income that they’re making and it’s really important for two reasons.

First of all, it’s going to give you the understanding of who actually becomes a coach and it’s also going to help you to really understand that yes, you can do this and you can be successful with it. So in order to get that free PDF, just send a text message to 38470 and include the word “Beachbody” in the body of that text message. Again, 38470 and include “Beachbody”.

And as a special give away, this month we’re going to choose one person. So for everybody that texted in and gets that free giveaway, we’re going to choose one person and we’re going to give away a free bag or box of Shakeology, $130 value. So go ahead, send that text message to 38470, the word “Beachbody”, you’re really going to like what we send over to you.

Also, if somebody else sent you to this podcast, make sure that you reach out to them directly. If you found this podcast through either some search through the inter web somewhere or my wife or myself sent you here and you want to learn more about working with us, go ahead and swing over to Keithcallahan.com/partner.

All right, enjoy today’s episode.


[0:03:08.3] KC: Welcome to the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast. Today we’re talking about, if you want to become a coach but you feel that you’re not in the best shape, right? I want to really share a quick little story with you that highlights this because this is a big thing. It’s a big roadblock for a lot of people who are considering coaching but you have this piece, you have this fear or this belief that you have to get to a certain fitness level before you’re going to sign up as a coach.

I always like to give this example from the dating scene. So let’s say that you meet a man or a woman, whatever — whoever you would be dating and they are the most beautiful person that you’ve ever seen. They have the best body, they’re like the perfect height, the perfect build, the perfect weight, the perfect features. Everything is just beautiful about them. The only thing that — they don’t have the best personality, they’re not really, they’re not the nicest person, they have this big, huge ego and you know that type of person?

The type of person who they’re pretty on the outside but in all honesty, they’re not that nice of a person, their qualities, the way they treat people, it’s just not that nice right? Then you have somebody that you meet that is average looking, you would say they were average looking, they may not be the super model caliber, they’re not like the person that Vogue would have on the cover of the magazine or going down the runway strutting their stuff. But they’re gentle, they’re kind, they’re compassionate, they know how to love like a mother and protect like a father.

You get that vision, right? You have these two different people. Now you’re thinking about choosing a spouse, which one would you choose? Everybody’s going to choose the second one right? If you’re not going to choose the second one then you’ve got to check yourself because there’s definitely — life isn’t about looks, that will get you in the door or that’s an initial part but if you’re looking to build a relationship, if you’re likely to build a family, if you’re looking to have a long term sustainable thing. You want to choose the person with those personality characteristics with those ethics that you really like, right?

What does this have to do with not being in the best shape? What people are looking for in a coach, it doesn’t matter what shape you’re in, it matters that you’re on a journey, it doesn’t matter if you have six pack abs, it matters that you love yourself, that you are on a journey and that you’re willing to help other people on their journey. Really just let that set in.

I don’t care where you are on your physical journey, whether you have an extra five pounds to lose or whether you’re at the perfect body right now, whether you’ve got 200 pounds to lose. You have the ability to be a coach because there are other people out there who are going to be inspired by what you’re doing. So you can do this, you have everything that you need to do it, you don’t have to wait for the next five pounds, for the next 10 pounds for this to happen, for that to happen.

It’s like somebody saying that they’re going to quit smoking cigarettes, when ____. Stop today. So if you’re looking to become a coach, you’re thinking about it and you’re thinking, “I’m going to do it when ____.” I really put that on to you and I challenge you to put that aside, get signed up as a coach, put the when, aside and do it.

Work on yourself while you’re in the process of helping others. Because it’s not about you. That’s one of the beautiful things about being a coach, it’s not about you, it’s about others. Maybe you might not feel that you’re at where you want to be right now but there is somebody else who is going to be inspired to get to where you’re at.

All right, much love my friends, hope you’re enjoying this podcast and we’ll see you on the next episode.


[0:08:08.1] KC: All right, so I hope you’re enjoying these episodes. I know that I really enjoyed putting them together for you and I just want to talk to you about a bonus that we’ve put together for you. So I know that there’s so many people from so many different walks of life that have come onto our team and have experienced success with this business. First, I just want to state to you and I want you to really hear this, you can do this. It doesn’t matter what your background is, what you’ve done in the past, what you’ve done up to this point, you can do this and we’re here to help if you want to do it.

But anyway, the bonus that we’ve put together for you, it’s a document that’s a snapshot of 50 coaches on our team, or roughly 50 coaches. So we’ve got coaches that are making $100 a week, we’ve got coaches that are making over $15,000 a week. We’ve got coaches from all different backgrounds and what this document does is it gives the name of the coach, it also gives a little bit of a testimonial or a “What has Beachbody done for you” quote. Then it shows the coach’s weekly income, what they’re making on average on a weekly basis.

Then there’s the best part, is it’s actually connected to that person’s Facebook page. So you can go through this document, you’re going to see all these different coaches and you’re able to actually click on their name and find out about them on Facebook. So really, really cool thing there and it gives you the opportunity to understand that there’s somebody out there just like you that’s doing this business. Now in order to get that document, send a text message to 38470 and then in the body of the text message just type “Beachbody”.

So again, send a text message to the number 38470 and then in the body of that, just type “Beachbody” and what we’ll do is we’ll get you connected and we’ll make sure that you get that document. The second thing I want you to do is, if you’ll go to Keithcallahan.com, you’re going to be able to get tons of information deeper than just on this podcast. We have a bunch of frequently asked questions about Beachbody, just all kinds of blogs, all kinds of information.

We also have a section called the monthly report. Within that section, for my wife and I, it tracks the very first week that we got started with Beachbody all the way up until today and it tracks what’s been going on in the business, what’s been going on in our personal life as well as focusing in on the income and how the income grew over that time and again, that’s Keithcallahan.com.

If you’re ready to get started which I pray that you are because this business has the opportunity to change your life, reach out to the coach that sent you here. If you have questions, ask them questions. If not, just let them know that you’re ready. If a specific coach didn’t send you here or if my wife or myself sent you here and you want to get in contact with us, the easiest way to do that is just send an e-mail to keith@keithcallahan.com.

I’ll just leave you with this one piece of parting advice. If what you’re doing in your life hasn’t gotten you to where you want to be and doesn’t have the potential to get you to where you want to be, it’s time for a change. We’d love to be that change for you and we’d love to be able to support you through that entire journey. Until next time.
