Become a Diamond Beachbody Coach in One Week

Beachbody Diamond Coach

Become a Diamond Beachbody Coach in One Week Wake Up Call Coach Jimmy here, fresh off guest speaking on this morning’s Team Beachbody National Wake Up call. I hear coaches all the time saying, “Jimmy, how do I get to diamond rank?” Why? Because diamond rank is really where recognition starts, and where your business starts. There was a statistic that really jumped out at me in the call today. Corporate let us know that in the month of February, last month, there were 34 THOUSAND people added to the network. 34,000… I remember when there weren’t 34,000 coaches in the entire network, and now we’re adding that per month! Tough Love So, with that in mind, here’s a little tough love from yours truly today. To get to diamond, you need to sponsor 8 people and help 2 of those people sponsor 2 each for emerald. So, we’re talking 12 individuals you’ve got to…

Don't Quit Beachbody Coach

MOTIVATIONAL VIDEO – Don’t Quit Too Soon! People Quit Things WAY Too Soon We all want instant gratification. In today’s society, it’s expected and craved. If we can’t become the master of something in 30 days, it didn’t work – or worse yet, we failed. Fortunately, that’s just not true. Most people go to college for four or more years just to learn about one subject. Then they go out into the world and attempt to master that subject by creating a career out of it. They work at it each and every day, getting better and better. Sometimes they have to switch careers, or do work they don’t want to in order to just make a living. But, yet, when it comes to starting a business like Beachbody Coaching, which involves working out, eating healthy, and talking to people, many look for the first little hiccup to use as an excuse…

You Have Value! Live Boldly!

You Have Value - Live Boldly

You Have Value! Live Boldly! This video was recorded at Beachbody Coach Training at Beachbody Coach Summit 2014 in Las Vegas. It is My Seven Year Anniversary as a Beachbody Coach. I am an old dog in this fight and there were two things I was thinking of when Chalene was talking today. Number one, when she talked about the hill and the sprint, my career as a coach can be summed up into this. However, there were times I could see that was a benefit to me because I saw the sprinters going by me and I thought I must be doing something wrong. Has Anyone Ever Felt That Way as a Beachbody Coach? If you didn’t raise your hand – you’re a liar. You know you’ve been like, “oh, so and so made success club their first month.” “They were diamond in their first 30 days.” “That person…

Dad, CEO, Husband & Friend: HOW I Do It With Heart & Passion

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I bet in your life you are probably asked to wear quite a few hats.  Each one requires a different skill set to best accommodate the audience that has assigned that hat to you. Have I lost you already? Just bear with me for a moment.  For me, a few of the hats I am required to wear on a daily basis are those of Dad, CEO, Husband, and Friend.  You may have less hats to wear, you may have so many that the thought of just writing a list of them seem daunting! Do you ever feel as though you are asked to wear so many hats that none of them really have that perfectly fitted feel a hat is supposed to have?  I have!  That slight tinge of panic that can creep in when life has you so scattered that you feel like…

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…

The Flat Tire That Almost Ruined My Life!

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson The picture you see above is the bill of an unexpected car expense we had to take care of this weekend.  Now, depending on who you are, that amount may seem like a lot or not that big of a deal.  It really doesn’t matter because the amount is not the point of this blog post.  It’s more about what that bill represents. I’ve never been a big fan of car repair places.  Not because I have any personal agenda against people in the automotive industry.  It’s mostly a cover for my ignorance when he comes to cars and how they work.   Body shops, tire places, even a simple quick-stop oil change always made my stomach turn because it always seemed like when I had to go to these places I was going to 1). Be nickle and dimed for extras my car ‘needed’ according…

How to Get Motivated to Exercise in 3 Simple Steps

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson How to Get Motivated to Exercise in 3 Simple Steps mo·ti·va·tion – the act or an instance of motivating,  or providing with a reason to act in a certain way I used to think people misinterpreted the word motivation.  They’d say, “I will start working out when I get motivated.”  And I would always think that if they had the ‘want to’ then that in itself should be their motivation.  But looking at the definition, it seems that the people that lack motivation really are saying that don’t have a big enough reason to get started. So, using my pattern during my 100 pound weight loss journey, I want to show you how to get motivated to exercise.  It really just comes down to 3 simple steps. 1.  Identify Your Specific Why What I mean by that is really identifying why you want to start…

One Day Maybe

by Kelly Songy Nelsongy Saturday morning, Jimmy and I found ourselves kid-free for a few hours!  Asher went to play with his Nana and Gramps which allowed us to get the house straightened, do laundry, weekly food prep and workout!  I was in our closet changing into my workout clothes when I noticed a box at the top of our closet.  I call this box my “one day maybe” box.  With pregnancy and then now post baby, I’ve gained and lost 59 pounds, so I have a box of clothes that one day maybe I’ll fit back into. Just for kicks, I decided to pull the box down.  I figured it would give me motivation for my workout!  In the box were three pencil skirts that I used to wear when I worked for a hedge fund in NYC.  Super sassy skirts that I was so bummed to grow out…

Getting Past Unbelief So You Create The Life Of Your Dreams

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Do me a favor.  Close your eyes.  Take a deep breath. Now describe to me your ideal life!  Ready, Set, Go! What does it look like?  Where do you live?  Is it a bustling big city penthouse or a quiet cottage overlooking the ocean?  Do you spend your days as the owner of a big business?  Maybe it is doing mission work for those less fortunate. Or maybe you are constantly flying all over the world as an international music scout looking for the next great sound that will flood the airways. In this image are you married with a big family?  Maybe single with an active group of friends.   What do you look like?  Do you finally have that set of six pack abs you’ve always wanted.  Or maybe you have an amazing collection of designer jeans that look like they were tailor-made for…

How to Get Motivated To Exercise

Motivation – That pesky elusive Friend By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Wouldn’t life be so much easier if we were always motivated to do the things we know we need to do.  Cleaning the garage, preparing taxes, and, of course, exercising!  Why is it that we don’t need a Coach to motivate us to do things like take a vacation, meet buddies to watch the game, or watch the season premiere of our favorite TV show?  Wouldn’t life be sweet if getting up 45 minutes earlier than normal was as easy as giving in to the dessert tray?  Ahhhh, let’s take a moment and dream of that magical land. So what IS motivation?  I’m not a big word geek, but the root word is motive.  Motive is a noun that is defined as: something that causes a person to act in a certain way, do a certain thing, etc.; incentive….
