My name is Jim Ford, and I am an Independent Team Beachbody Coach.
If you are looking for some kind of get rich quick scheme then don’t bother to read beyond this point. This is not what Beachbody is about and as a coach; I don’t want you on my team.
I have seen some reviews on the opportunity that are quite negative, but from reading them thoroughly, many seem to be from people who did not research the available information on the program prior to registration, so please, if you are reading this because you are considering the opportunity, do your research and read the policies before making the commitment.
Now, about me…
In my personal history I have studied the basics of fitness and nutrition and how they apply to gaining or losing weight, whichever the goal might be, and having also looked at many of the Beachbody home fitness programs I found myself agreeing with the concepts of the programs and the nutritionals they have to offer.
There was an earlier time in my life when I weighed only 145lbs at 72″ tall and after studying fitness and nutrition and reviewing several books, (before Beachbody existed) I set out to gain weight. In a matter of several months I had managed to pack on 50lbs of lean muscle.
Later in life I found myself packing on even more weight. My life had become less physical and I was reaching a weight nearing 225lbs, and I can honestly say there was not much muscle behind it. My size 36 jeans were getting tight around my waist, and I was getting depressed.
Having been interested in fitness and a true believer in the need for maintaining a healthy lifestyle I was honestly ashamed of how I looked, and of the example I was setting for my children. Here I was in my late 40s and becoming everything I swore I would not allow myself to be. I turned to Beachbody for help.
I had stood by and watched close relatives spend the latter part of their years suffering from poor health in part due to their own life choices. In far too short of time I attended the funerals of uncles, an aunt, a cousin, and my own father who each could have extended their lives and had a better quality of life if they had made different choices.
I watched as my father went from having to carry oxygen, to having to use a wheel chair, and then being unable to play with his grandkids. During his last few years my wife and I started to build a new home 60 miles from where my parents lived. He was able to come and see the beginning of the construction, but I could see the hurt in his eyes when he was unable to travel the 60 miles again to see its completion. I miss him dearly and he is in my thoughts every single day.
In our society we have groups that are against smoking because it is unhealthy. We have groups that are against drinking because it is unhealthy, but at the same time we have groups that promote obesity as being a beautiful thing. With two thirds of our nation overweight, someone needs to step up and try to make a difference and this is what Team Beachbody is giving me an opportunity to do.
I don’t want to see any more parents or grandparents who are unable to play with their young loved ones. I don’t want to see people suffering from heart disease, and diabetes when there is any chance to avoid it. I don’t want children to watch their parents and grandparents waste away in pain and sorrow over what could have been.
Obesity is a major contributor to decaying health and decreasingly active lifestyles in our country. Our own laziness and uncaring attitudes are to blame. Not terrorists, not communism, not the government, and no, not even fast food. We make our own choices and are destroying ourselves through our own consciously made decisions.
As a Team Beachbody Coach, I can become a part of the solution to our nation’s trend towards obesity. Yes, there is an opportunity to earn money as a coach, but more importantly, there is an opportunity to change the lives of the people around you for the better
Becoming a coach helped to motivate me in reaching my own personal goals. I would not feel comfortable promoting a lifestyle that I did not practice myself, and through the use of Beachbody programs and nutritionals I am looking and feeling better than I have in a very long time.
Every minute I can spend sharing what Beachbody has to offer is a minute invested on the future, and rest assured, I am investing in far more than possible changes to my bank account.
