BEACHBODY Coach Summit 2015 Recap
Jimmy: Hi my name is Coach Jimmy here and I with two of the more manly creatures on my team. This is Phillip and Jet a.k.a the Jetster! We are here in Nashville and we just wrapped up Beach Body Coach Summit. I’ve been a coach for 8 years and I think I’ve been to seven of these. Phillip this is your second and Jetster this is his first. So I kind of want to get three perspectives on everybody’s experience.
So I’m going to start with you Jet as your first time – you’ve been a coach for a while so what were you most excited about when coming out of Summit?
“This was a good opportunity to come and get advice from people who have seen positive results both physical and financial.” -Jet
Jet: I’m just excited to actually – I mean it took seven years to get here which is kind of crazy – I’ve been in the business so long and I’ve just been using the products and doing the work-outs; so this will be my very first year to actually, genuinely attempt to build a business and I like a challenge and I like business.
This was a good opportunity to come and get advice from people who have seen positive results both physical and financial.
Jimmy: So Phillip from year one to year two, is there a change? Is there a certain product you’re excited about or just you’re prospective?
Phillip: Absolutely! So two things here: first being, I think is at checkpoint. That’s why these events are very important. For me, the year has gone by when you show up to these things and you’re surrounded by a community and you say, “What did I do this year?” You kind of reflect and you celebrate of course; you’re glad you did this, but you also say, “What could I have done better? What could I change? Of course, you’re at an event so it also accumulates all of the knowledge you already have on the subject, so it’s really great!
Phillip: While you’re in that reflective state, it’s not like maybe you had a bad day at home and you’re like, “Oh what could I have done?” No, you’re in a great and positive environment. So you’re actually saying, “Oh what could I have done – Oh here it all is, it’s right in front of me!” You can engage with your friends, your mentors and other folks that are killing it in this business and willing to give you everything that they know.
“it’s been cool to watch it grow because in year one when I went to this, it was probably like 250-300 people and we had just left an event that 25,000 people registered for and to watch every year, and they continued to give us the tools to see things expand, watch lives change physically;” -Jimmy
Jimmy: You know it’s been cool to watch it grow because in year one when I went to this, it was probably like 250-300 people and we had just left an event that 25,000 people registered for and to watch every year, and they continued to give us the tools to see things expand, watch lives change physically; you know watching the transformation’s last night I know was a big for all of us and then to watch financial transformations. Sometimes people have an issue with the money, and we talked yesterday – the money doesn’t really happen unless lives really, really change. I think that’s why we all dig this company because of the products and you (Jet) just talked about that.
Jet: What I was really fascinated by is I know there is a business side and people say you, “You don’t have to be in shape to do this!” We always talked about all three of our cultures to be a product of the product, and that even sounds “salesy”; but it’s not just about that. It’s about being healthy, working on yourself and I am really surprised at how many people here are in fantastic shape. It’s really inspirational.
Jimmy: I do think it’s a nice mix.
Phillip: It is and by that same token, I see people that clearly are not on the journey –
Jimmy: Or at the very beginning of the journey
Phillip: Right! And I think for them to come here and see this, not only is it very motivational, but it is sort of, “Ok I am on the right journey, because look at all of these people – all of these fit people who probably didn’t start out like that.”
Jet: The most successful Coaches up to this point are 90 percent fit. So what you’re (Phillip) saying is those that aren’t, is maybe because they are just beginning their journey and you know maybe they’ll be watching us.
Jimmy: And I respect those people for being here. I know I’ve had a lot of my coaches that were intimated to come to events like this because they thought they had to be fit and they thought it was going to be a bunch of fitness models and it’s not. So I think it is encouraging for those people to come here and go, “They’re having success with the products and the business because they decided to join the community as a Coach from the beginning.” I wish being a coach was available when I was on my journey because there’s something about, “I’m on my journey, come join me in the middle of it” that has a lot of power as opposed to, “Wait until I get ripped and tell you how I did it!”
“that is the beauty of the business. All we can do is play to our strengths” -Phillip
Phillip: But then again, that is the beauty of the business. All we can do is play to our strengths and the thing is, if you try not to be and you just chase the numbers – you have to try to picture your story as we learned yesterday, you know tell your story – I was bullied – you know the physicality of your story, tell it! Don’t avoid it! Use it!
Jet: I’m excited to get coaches under me and see their transformation, like you alluded to last night. Even the celebration, the closing ceremony last night; when we’re talking about the money, that started to even bug me as a Coach but yeah it’s cool. But, then when we got to the transformation challenges, that’s when I was moved again. So that’s where it starts and the money is a byproduct, the money happens after the fantastic stories and transformations.
You know when I was watching the people who were doing the Beachbody challenge, one guy lost 250 pounds, one guy who came down with cancer and loss 50 pounds, the one woman was over 50 and she lost 140 pounds and so you see their Coaches up there and I have respect for those people because they had the drive in them and that truly is Coaching. It’s not being a personal trainer; it’s about life Coaching.
“You know when I was watching the people who were doing the Beachbody challenge, one guy lost 250 pounds, one guy who came down with cancer and loss 50 pounds, the one woman was over 50 and she lost 140 pounds” -Phillip
Jimmy: It’s about accountability and support
Jet: I’m excited to get some people on my downline and it’s not about the money, it’s about really seeing change and the money, what a great benefit
Jimmy: I think that’s great. So Phillip I want to ask you as a personal trainer, Division One Athlete, your excitement about the performance line that’s coming out.
Phillip: The performance line – for those of you who don’t know, is actually approved for leisure and professional use which is just huge because I was a Division One athlete and even on that scale, when you’re there’s something things that you lack and some things that you need. For me running in particular is so key and you know you may not have the nutritionist on the fitness end that you want and just stuff like that is just so great to have approved, to that available to all of those people. For me I think I told you guys how I broke the world record of people working out in the street –
Jimmy: That’s the rumor!
Phillip: So we were there and for me it’s looking around at all these people and it brought me back to when I first started Beachbody just working out and I was running and they’ve given us more doors. It’s like somebody said, “What are you most excited about to help people?” For me it’s having the Master Hammer and Chisel coming out, the Sides which is all dancing and everything.
I can only smile because we’re giving people a door and it doesn’t matter what that is, it could be dance because they may never work-out unless there was a dance. It’s just getting them in that door, then they lose weight, they feel amazing and they say, “Oh my God, my life has totally changed!” It’s almost like you duked them to get them in the door and then they feel great and so they’re never going to stop, it feels amazing, my life is completely better and their just going to keep up and maybe help other people with maybe Coach or working on themselves.
“It’s not even about the weight; it’s the things you’re able to do in your life that maybe you gave up confidence about.” -Jimmy
Jimmy: We talked last night – kind of the closing here is – we’ve made a conscious choice as a team as individuals, that when we talk to someone like you we don’t have an agenda coming in. Our job is to ask you questions, find out what you need and if we have something that can solve that problem; maybe its nutrition, maybe its energy, maybe you need to lose weight. It’s not even about the weight; it’s the things you’re able to do in your life that maybe you gave up confidence about.
Maybe there’s a financial piece, but our job is really to serve you like we have a bag of solutions, but we don’t come in throwing solutions. We want to get to know you, we want to find out where you want to improve your life and allow us to serve, to help, to be that coach along the way so we’re excited about this year coming up. We would love for you to join us as well. I’m going to put all three of our information below this video and even if you just want to talk or have questions, but you know it’s time for change, please reach out! Thanks for this time! It’s Jet, its Jimmy its Phillip!
