My Life as a Beachbody Coach

Before I dive into all about myself as a bb coach, let me answer a much more broad and commonly asked question.

Q: What does a Beachbody Coach Do?

A: Beachbody Coaches share with others products they are using themselves that they truly believe in and know get results from their own personal experience. They also provide support, accountability, and motivation to their customers and help them get the best results possible.

What Does A Beachbody Coach Do?

Above is the short version. If you’d like a longer version and a more in depth explanation directly in relation to my career as a bb coach, keep on reading!

So What Do I do as a Beachbody Coach?

Being a Beachbody Coach goes beyond my career. It’s a lifestyle I live and breathe each and every day.  On top of being a coach, I’m also a yoga and meditation teacher striving to provide all-around lifestyle wellness. My ‘job’ is so personal to me. I think it’s because out of all things Beachbody provided myself as a customer (before I became a coach) the accountability group I was in thanks to MY coach is what truly played the biggest role in my success. Having so much support each and every day while being surrounded with like-minded people kept me on track with my goals. My dream of being healthier and fitter than ever didn’t just fizzle out like it has many many times before through efforts of other workout/diet regimens I tried on my own numerous times. Being a part of a team with this company is unique and nothing short of inspiring.

If you’re wondering what my life’s like now as a coach, why I became a coach and where I see my life going I highly suggest watching the video below:

If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to send me an email or ask a question below, I’d love to hear from anyone with feedback regarding beachbody or joining an accountability group.

SHARE YOUR STORY

To build authentic relationships you must share where you came from, what you’re doing and where you’re going.Coaching Tip Tuesday1

I think it’s so important as an entrepreneur, yoga teacher, FFAthlete and beachbody coach to share with my clients, students, and teammates (AKA MY FRIENDS). If you’re thinking of becoming a coach or joining my team I encourage you to share your story. Here’s a tidbit of my own I felt called to write about today:unnamed-1

Feeling like myself again: healthy, energized, HAPPY, silly and full of laughter. I had a rough 2014 full of sadness, anxiety, panic attacks and not wanting to leave my bed. I haven’t shared this with many people because I worried about others perception of myself. I realized how others see you doesn’t matter if you’re miserable!! I decided to push excuses to the side and live the life of my wildest dreams. I’m stepping into my true self by following my true passion of helping others. Believe me  when I say you can live the life you’ve always wanted because if you decide & commit you will succeed. I truly believe living your dream-life begins with a strong foundation of good health. If this resonates with you and you would like more info on how you can get involved in my wellness team to become the best version of yourself be sure to leave your email or shoot me a msg via Facebook. Why Wait for 2015?

Blessings,

DECEMBER 2014 BEACHBODY BOOTCAMP

As some of you know, every 1st of the month my team runs a beachbody bootcamp where we come together to keep one another accountable for our health & fitness goals. If you want more information on our monthly (you can join late) beachbody bootcamps click HERE. So, you might be wondering what program I decided to commit to this December. I choose…

why-what-portrait.jpeg

As a yogi of course I love this program. The fusion between pilates, yoga, cardio and dynamic movements keep your body guessing and mind off everything else going on in your life while doing PiYo. I decided to commit to this program this December because with all of the hustle & bustle during the holiday’s I know I’m low on time, have cold joints, and a fluttered mind thinking about shopping, family events, parties, the new year, etc. Not to mention all the temptation to overindulge in poor food options and alcohol. With PiYo, most of the workouts are about 40 minutes, you’re improving joint mobility, building muscle and muscle flexibility with these low impact workouts.The emphasis on the breath is one of my favorite parts of PiYo . So if you’re interested in following my journey through PiYo this december definitely check out my instagram and Facebook that’ll contain daily updates! If you’re interested in participating with my PiYo Bootcamp or wanting to participate with another one of beachbody’s programs/supplements this December be sure to drop a comment below, visit HERE to fill out a form to join or simply email me at lexiannwellness@gmail.com

We have all tried different diets, taken off weight, put it back on, started new workout programs, quit them, joined gyms, stopped going, etc. This challenge right before the new year is meant to get you grounded and on track.  My team gives you the support that you need to make a lifestyle change and reach your full potential, why wait until January 1st? If you are ready to commit to change reach out to me. I am so looking forward to seeing everyone’s awesome results this month and can’t wait for mine, good luck!

Below you’ll find the descriptions of each workout on the program:

A Strong Core Starts Here by ASKinyourface.com

This article was originally published on one of my yoga teacher’s (Allision Kaplan) blog, here!!!

Your core is the very center of your physical, emotional and spiritual universe. Everything about us somehow relates to this real and magical place; where energy, courage, passion and self-confidence generates. The famous psychologist, Carl Jung, once said that Manipura chakra is where we burn through our passions and desires in order to become a completely realized individual. Becoming a fully realized person will take you to the test. Believe me, I know how uncomfortable and scary change can be and that it usually requires us to give up something big (really scary) to make room for something else (much bigger) that often ends up as unexpected amazing.

Keep reading! There’s a great core strengthening workout for you further down the page.

“Fear, uncertainty and discomfort are your compasses toward growth.”

According to the Kundalini yoga tradition, traveling along our energetic highway of chakras, the third chakra, Manipura translates as “city of jewels” or “lustrous gem”. This is exactly what we hold within us. A dazzling, radiant center of energy that distributes life throughout the human framework. Just as the earth would not survive without the sun, we rely on our third chakra to regulate and energize our systems activities. There are many techniques one can use to stimulate, balance and connect more fully to our manipura chakra. According to many traditions, including Kundalini Yoga, the third chakra is the actual place of awakening the kundalini energy; the center of will and action. This is the fire that sets it off! You can read more about this on Spirit Voyage.com. It really is interesting stuff!
So, what is one such way to get this glowing fire going? Simultaneous breath work and simple movement will stimulate the navel center and surrounding area. I’m not saying that the exercises you will hopefully be doing are going to be easy and painless – not at all. You can expect the sensations in your belly and in your head to be intense and challenging. This is how change begins. You gotta feel in order to grow! So, stay with it and you’re going to feel amazing!

Begin creating change by setting aside time for a morning ritual.

First thing in the morning, these exercises, practiced regularly, will shift your energy from slow, sluggish and unmotivated to strong, radiant and ready to roll. Your body, mind and spirit will become brighter, lighter and more powerful than you ever could have imagined.

Before you get started…

A good nights sleep is vital to your whole health so don’t skimp on those precious healing hours of rest. Train yourself to go to bed 30 minutes earlier than usual. This will allow you the time needed to complete your core awakening workout without compromising your nightly rest. Here you go!

Optional Warm-Up

Begin with one to three minutes of Breath of Fire (rhythmic nostril breathing that sounds much like a panting dog) Sit cross-legged with your spine tall and eyes closed. Raise your arms over your head, palms facing away from you and bring your thumbs to touch with your fingers softly curled into your palm. Or, rest your hands (palms up) on your knees. Begin to breathe in and out of your nose. Keep this breathe work going for one minute. Be patient with yourself ; new is strange and uncomfortable but soon becomes an old friend. Don’t rush it; allow the process of daily practice to bring you to this place of comfort and ease.  Click here to watch a great video and learn more about breath of fire.

Maintain awareness of breath while doing the following core exercises for one minute each. Beginners start with 30 seconds for each exercise. End each one minute core exercise with a huge inhale, hold for 3 seconds, followed by a long exhale. These are just a few of my favorites.

Regular Crunch  – with bent knees, feet on the floor: Just lift shoulder blades off the floor and go!

Reverse Crunch – Lift hips off the floor while keeping your torso on the floor

Double Crunch  – Lift BOTH hips & shoulders off the floor simultaneously

Left Crunches  – Take right elbow to the left knee

Right Crunches – Take left elbow to right knee

Straight Leg Raises – Alternately lift & lower your legs (slide your hands under your butt for more support)

Double Leg Raises – Lift & lower both legs together

Bicycle Crunches – Alternate elbows to opposite knee by bicycling the legs

Hold High Plank Pose – on your hands and toes

Hold Plank on your forearms

Allow all this awesome energy to settle while you rest for a few minutes in child pose

15 minutes each morning and you will create a core defined – radiant and powerful forever more. That’s you!

Always love,

Allison
