Looking back now, when I first decided to partner with Beachbody last July, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. I was skeptical and thought there was a chance it was all a big scam.
When I was going back and forth deciding whether I should join or not I had a very successful friend (not affiliated with Beachbody) say to me, “Jess, I think you should just do it. You have so much more to gain than you have to lose.” She was so right and her words convinced me to pull the trigger.
Now, nine months later I can honestly say that starting Team Fit Dynasty has been a huge blessing in my life. I have been able to fulfill my passion of helping people learn to live a healthier life and I’m also able to mentor women to start their own successful fitness businesses.
In nine months we have grown our organization to 114 people (what?!! Still can’t believe it). Our team is made up of young professionals, working moms, and stay at home moms who have become my co-workers and friends.
I often have women ask me what I’m looking for in a potential Team Fit Dynasty member, and the answer is simple:
I look for good hearted, positive people who are passionate about health and fitness and who want to help people…that’s it. I want good people that I will enjoy working with and I’m so proud to say that is what we have on Team Fit Dynasty.
When I started our team I knew we would have a positive community of fitness enthusiasts. I did not, however, realize how much this team of women would positively impact my life and inspire me on a daily basis. Yes, I have been able to earn an income from home the past nine months while staying home with my kids…but this is about so much more than that.
This past month a very special person joined our team who has truly inspired me more than she knows.
Candice contacted me and expressed interest in joining the team explaining how excited she was to get started and that she wanted to help as many people as she possibly could. I was excited about her enthusiasm and couldn’t wait to start working with her.
I soon found out a little more about Candice and learned that the unimaginable happened to her in December of 2013 when she lost her youngest son Brady, who was only five years old, to a battle with CdLs Syndrome. She lost her son on Christmas Eve.
My heart broke for Candice and I began to cry as she explained her story and how obviously devastating it was for her and her family.
Then she told me how fitness and joining Team Fit Dynasty was something that she was excited about for the first time since the death of her son.
Candice’s words completely blew me away and it was at that moment I realized that Team Fit Dynasty has become so much more than I originally intended it to be.
It takes an exceptionally strong person to turn her grief of losing a child into positive energy to pay it forward and to help other women…and she wants to do it all in Brady’s honor.
I have noticed such a huge change in Candice this past month and can see her happiness exude from her photos. I’m so so proud of her and want her to know how much she has inspired me :).
Honestly, if I stopped working with Beachbody tomorrow I would be happy knowing that our team could help someone in the time of need like it did for her.
However, I plan on working with Beachbody for as long as they let me , and tomorrow night I will be co-leading a live sneak peak presentation about what it means to be a part of Team Fit Dynasty.
If you’ve been curious to what it’s all about and how you can benefit from this opportunity then take the time to join us on the call. Like a good friend told me…you have so much more to gain than to lose.
UPDATE: Our sneak peak call went great and has had over 1,000 views so far with potential candidates for our team. If you would like to view the recording and apply to be considered for one of the five spots I’m filling this month, please fill out the form below!
