Celebrate! A recap of the 2013 Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World Trip

Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World

Take time to Celebrate!!! A Recap of the 2013 Beachbody Coach Walt Disney World Trip by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson If you have stopped by my Facebook page recently, you probably saw quite a few fun and crazy pics from our recent trip to Walt Disney World.   Not everyone knows that I used to work at Walt Disney World, so I am always thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds.   It is always fun to act like a big kid running around all the parks, riding rides, and taking pictures with giant characters from my favorite movies!  The best part about this trip:  It was Free!  I earned it as a Team Beachbody Coach for encouraging others with their health and fitness goals.  Sounds too good to be true right?  I used to think the same thing!  But this is the 7th trip Beachbody has sent me on! What…

This former fat college dropout wants to show you how to make a 6 Figure Income in your spare time while getting in shape!

You may think that headline is a bit dramatic but it is 100% true.  In my mid-20′s I found myself 100 pounds overweight, living back with my parents after dropping out of college.  Oh did I mention I was drowning in the stress of debt which added to my weight gain? Thankfully I was introduced to a community of supportive people that accepted me just as I was and taught me what life could truly be.  These amazing people were willing to help, but ultimately it was up to me to decide to take the first step, put some skin in the game and commit to getting started. You see knowing or hearing about a solution is one thing.  But it is the person that is willing to take that first step of faith that gets to experience the miracle!   My 100 pound weight loss didn’t come from just knowing…

How to pay your rent with Pushups!

I have been bubbling with anticipation and excitement for this announcement.  So I won’t beat around the bush.  Let me get straight to the point! First thing I need to you know is that this isn’t for everyone. I am constantly asked how I was able to go from 100 pounds overweight, a 3 time college dropout who was living at home with my parents and drowning in debt, to having the privilege of not only losing those 100 pounds and working from home, but being able to bring my wife home from her corporate job to work with me as we raise our awesome 2 year old son, Asher.  And how in the world did we create a comfortable 6 figure income in the process!? Well I am on a quest to find a few individuals who know they were made to do more with their life.  Those people…

Stories to Make You Smile

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Usually I pop on here to let you know something that is on my heart, or share a funny anecdote from my family that taught me a lesson.   But today I want to tell you some amazing stories of others!  I’ve had the privilege of working with each of these individuals.  Their stories and accomplishments are just too amazing not to share! Bryan and Brandy M. are two of my favorite people.  These crazy Cajuns got to a point that their careers kept them so busy that they had neglected to take care of themselves.  Not only had their fitness level lowered, but their stress level was through the roof.  Since plugging into our support system, they have been given a new joy and passion.  INSANITY, P90X, Body Beast, and now Les Mills Combat along with their favorite chocolate treat keep their energy levels at…

Invest 20 Seconds. It may just change your life!

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson This past weekend I had the privilege of being asked to emcee an event in Dallas for over 500 Beachbody Coaches.  If that wasn’t cool enough, the special guest was Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler.  If it wasn’t for Carl, INSANITY, P90X, and SHAKEOLOGY would have never existed! As you can see from the picture above, this ‘Super Saturday Event’ was over 500 people strong!  As I looked out into the audience I was overwhelmed by all the different types of people I saw staring back at me.   Young and fit and full of energy.  Others who had found Beachbody in their 40’s and 50’s and have a pep in their step that makes them the envy of their contemporaries.  I was also blessed to see and speak with people just starting their weight loss journey who shared with me that they know they have a…

2012 Year In Review

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I know it’s cliche to say, but seriously, I cannot believe another year has flown by!  And the thought of starting 2013 just sounds very futuristic to me.  As a kid I assumed by 2013 our world would resemble something from a Transformers cartoon. If you are a consistent reader of my blog, you know one of the mantras I repeat often is to celebrate your successes.  It is so easy to only focus on those things we haven’t achieved yet,  constantly looking to our left and right comparing ourselves to others successes.  But I want to challenge you to sit down, look at your calendar, and relive 2012 in your mind.  Remember where you were 365 days ago, and pat yourself on the back for the things you DID do this year. Like any good Coach, I need to follow my own advice and…

Who You Surround Yourself with Will Ultimately Determine Where You End Up!

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with” – Jim Rohn This is one of my favorite quotes and comes from one of my favorite speakers.  I was reminded of it last weekend.  My wife Kelly and I hosted a group of our top Beachbody Coaches on our team, The Crew, in New Orleans.  Not only was it amazing to spend time with these ‘leaders in the making’, we were also blessed to have four top Coaches from other organizations join us as our special guests. Dave and Monica Ward flew out from their home in San Diego.  They shared amazing tips on how they went from lawyer and school teacher, respectively, to earning over a million dollars in their current business. We also had the privilege of learning from Mike and Kelley Ryan.  This amazing couple just a…

When can I be a Team Beachbody Coach in Canada?

beachbody_coach_canada

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson During my 5+ years as a Team Beachbody Coach, I’ve been asked constantly when would it be possible to have Canadian Beachbody Coaches that could join our team, The Crew. Well I am excited to announce that as of October 1, 2012 residents of Canada can join The Crew as a Team Beachbody Coach in Canada! Here are a few of the top questions for quick reference: “I live in Canada. How do I enroll as a Coach with Team Beachbody?” Currently, individuals residing in Canada may enroll as a Coach, however they will be operating a United States independent business with Beachbody in the United States. You can enroll as a new Coach with our team, THE CREW, the same way you would in the U.S. By Clicking Here and getting started with a Challenge Pack. “Will the Coach opportunity be available to individuals…

Help Wanted! Will You Answer the Call?

Help-Wanted-Sign

We have a Crisis On Our Hands!  Will you Help? by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Thank You  for taking a moment to learn about a very serious issue that I need your help with.  A few weeks ago USA Today ran an article claiming that by 2030, 50% of the U.S. population would be OBESE!  Take a moment and let that set in.  HALF!   Regardless of your own health and fitness level this is an epidemic that affects everyone!  These dramatic obesity levels can health care costs to skyrocket, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and most of all, it is killing those we love! Now that we have identified the problem.  What is the plan to solve it?  It seems like such a lost cause.  You may be asking yourself, “What I can I do alone that will make a dent in this issue?”   Alone.   Probably not much.   But…

Will You Join me as a Leader of Men?

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson This past weekend I attended a Leadership Retreat in California.  Being around so many amazing leaders, I learned so much.  But I also noticed something.  It became very obvious to me that the most passionate leaders, the ones who were able to rally the troops, and put people into true action were primarily women.   Now ladies, before you get all riled up, this is NOT an anti-woman blog post.  I admire all the strong women I see inspiring others to take action and create change in their families, communties, and lives.  These amazing women have created cultures of action.  They were rallying other women.  Not only identifying problems but igniting action by challenging other women to stop complaining about their problems, and join a movement to do something about it.   I loved it!  The passion and fire was infectious.  I totally saw why 1000’s of…
