- Heather B.
- A little about me. In my normal life, I am a civil engineer who sits behind a desk everyday. I got married to my wonderful husband in 2006. Since meeting him and our many days of eating out and less working out, my weight started to creep up. In August 2007 my girlfriend wanted to get back in shape after her pregnancy. She talked me into running weekly with her. I agreed, and this began my plan to get my body back in shape. I wanted to add some additional workouts to my run, so I pulled out my old Slim in 6 videos. At the same time, I re-found the online message boards at Beachbody where I meet a lot of great people who kept me committed to my fitness goals. I also found a great coach who was there everyday to help me stay on track! Today, I'm still working to sculpt my body and get it into the best shape ever. As I have progressed through my body's transition, I decided to become an Independent Beachbody Coach to help others reach their fitness goals! I realized it was easier then I thought, and I really believe others can change their lives too!

A Unique & Proven Business Plan for Personal Trainers – That WORKS…
Learn how you could earn a five-figure per month income, effectively manage hundreds of clients, while increasing overall client retention, with the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program!*
The Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program is a proven program and system that produces incredible results, and has thousands of client success stories and testimonials from across the country.
Almost every industry or business goes through “It” at some point. Those that embrace “It” are typically rewarded with a growing business, at a much more accelerated pace, higher income earnings, and a more secure future. Those who do not embrace “It” and try and hold on to the “old school” method of thinking and doing things are typically left behind, and they ultimately see their businesses suffer – and sometimes even fail. So what is “It?”
"It" is Called a Paradign Shift!
According to Wikipedia, the term "paradigm shift represents the notion of a major change in a certain thought-pattern - a change in personal beliefs, complex systems or organizations, replacing the former way of thinking or organizing with a different way of thinking or organizing.
A paradigm shift is a company called Starbucks that comes along and takes a .50 cent cup of coffee and charges you triple the price, and thousands of people gladly line up each day and hand over their hard earned money for this “designer coffee.”
A paradigm shift is currently taking place in the Personal Trainer industry and we can uniquely help you adjust your business to not only take advantage of this new change, but to also thrive and see your business take off to an entirely new level, surpassing your competition who is either unaware of this change, or simply refuses to embrace the changing environment.
We all know personal trainers deliver a valuable, and much needed service, helping people learn about fitness, good form, nutrition, and how to eat properly. You work closely with your clients on a one-on-one basis, assisting them through each of their workouts, counting reps, pushing and encouraging them to go to the next rep - the next level. You typically charge them by the hour or session, and hope you do a good enough job that they stay with you for several months, six months, a year, or longer… if you are good at what you do and your service is affordable for your clients.
Important Facts to Consider Regarding Your Industry - and YOUR Own Business
You realize how fixed your income potential is – because you are locked into the hours you are able to actually work each day. Let's say you can effectively serve 5 to 8 clients a day, 6 days a week. That's a approximately 30 to 48 client hours each week, and you ONLY get paid if there are no cancellations.
What about the current state of the economy? When it comes to paying the mortgage, the car payment(s), food, braces, etc., and cuts have to be made in the family budget, is a personal trainer, or even a gym membership, a necessity or a “luxury” that is one of the first items cut from the budget? We all know the answer to that – maybe you have already experienced this! And the economy is expected to continue to get worse.
As the sole owner, operator, and personal trainer to all your clients, the only way to expand your business is to either work longer hours (if you can), or increase how much you charge, while your competition is lowering what they charge in hopes of stealing your business.
Have you ever lost a client to another personal trainer because you had to cancel an appointment, were sick, or any other number of reasons a client may decide to move on to another trainer? If you haven’t, consider yourself lucky because it happens all the time!
Speaking of losing clients, what is your plan and cost to acquire new clients? How fast are you currently able to get new clients if you were to suddenly lose one or two of them?
The Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program can uniquely help
you solve any or all of these problems, while at the same time
providing you with an additional income stream…
The Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program Will Turn the Personal Trainer Industry Upside Down and Now You Can Be One of the First to Capitalize on this Powerful Trend!
IMPORTANT Note: The Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program can be run in conjunction with your current business model on a part-time or full-time basis – you decide which works best for you based on your current situation.
Following is a high level overview of the benefits you will enjoy as a Beachbody® Coach when you implement the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program into your current business:
- Build your business Nationwide and effectively manage and get paid on hundreds and even thousands of clients you are training – from all across the country!*
- Build your business to a level where even if you were to ever get injured or sick for any length of time, you could actually still have income coming in – and possibly even see your business grow during this unexpected downtime!
- Take a vacation for a week, ten days, two weeks, or more, and depending how well you have followed our proven program and built your overall business, you could be getting paid each week, and you could even see your income increase while you were away! Plus, with a laptop and an internet connection you can build and manage your business from just about anywhere!
- Beachbody® currently spends about $70 million dollars per year on infomercials and other advertising which currently generates between 15,000 and 30,000 paying clients each week. As an Active Beachbody® Coach you can start having these paying clients placed into your business.*
- Work the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program in conjunction with your current business model (part-time or full-time), and then adjust accordingly. Eventually you may find that you might work your current business model 50% of the time, and the new Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program the other 50% of the time. Then, like many of our Coaches, you may eventually decide to work 100% with the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program. It’s entirely up to you!
- All of Your clients, including any of your current clients, can play our FREE Million Dollar Body Game and have a chance to win $300 or $1,000 each day they work out with you (whether you are working with them in person or they are on their own).
How Much Does The Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program Cost?
The real question here should be, what will the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program cost if you don’t take advantage of it? However, for less than $100 to get started, and about $70 per month, you can get started with the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program as a Beachbody® Coach. Then, just follow the “Simple Steps to Your Journey to Success…” below and you will be on your way to getting 30 to 100 paying clients placed in your business each month.*
Simple Steps on Your Journey to Success with the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program
1. Start by working toward signing up ten new clients from anywhere across the country (we will show you how to do this) to work out and train with you (both locally, and virtually via e-mail) using Beachbody’s proven and effective exercise programs. Simply place your new Virtual Flex Program clients on any one of Beachbody’s 6 week to 90 day exercise programs like; Power 90®, Turbo Jam®, P90X®, Slim in 6®, or Hip Hop Abs® - based on your clients exercise preferences.
You work closely with and train your clients for just the first few weeks or so of their chosen exercise program to make sure their form is accurate, they stay consistent with their workouts, and to answer any questions they may have. Then, you simply follow up with them from time to time via e-mail to check on their progress. Our community of peer support will also help your clients stay on track with their fitness goals, proper nutrition, and motivation.
2. Next, make sure your clients sign up as members of the Team Beachbody® Club. They will enjoy numerous benefits that will save them both time and money. When your clients join the Club it will instantly increase your credibility and could even generate you an additional ongoing income stream – even if your clients discontinue using your Coaching services.
- They get immediate access to several online calculators (caloric needs, nutrition, BMI, body fat, etc.), along with personalized meal plans and numerous healthy recipes to choose from. They will learn about the right foods to eat, in the right portions, so there's no guesswork. As their personal trainer, once you take your client through the Club once or twice they will be on their own to use these valuable tools whenever they want to. You save valuable time and get paid when they renew their Club membership each quarter.
- They will enjoy extra help with Team Beachbody’s Trainer Tips and Thin Kitchen. In these online videos, your client’s favorite exercise trainers show them the best ways to do their moves, plus they will learn how to cook, eat properly and live thin!
- They get live access to fitness and diet experts, message boards and an exciting online community consisting of thousands of other like-minded individuals who are all doing similar things your clients will be doing.
- They will also enjoy an additional 10% savings on all Beachbody nutrition and fitness products which will help them transform their body and maximize their results!
- In addition to the free Million Dollar Body Game, all your clients have the opportunity to win amazing Transformation Contest prizes. As a Club member, your clients can submit their success story for an opportunity to win the monthly Transformation Contest prizes consisting of two $10,000 winners and six $1,000 winners. They could even go on and compete for the Transformation Contest Annual Grand Prize consisting of two $250,000 winners and six $50,000 winners!
3. Lastly, suggest that your clients sign up as a Beachbody® Coach so their sessions with you can eventually pay for themselves. This benefit alone has the possibility to dramatically increase your revenue stream.*
A Simple Key Factor to Success that Almost Every Personal Trainer Overlooks!
How You Could Receive Hundreds of Paying Client Referrals*
In exchange for you helping your clients to become “independently healthy” (and for a VERY small cost compared to what you would normally charge them), part of your clients agreement with you is they refer a minimum of two or more clients to you. Some of them will and some won't. However, on the other hand, some of them will also refer a lot more than two clients to you when they begin to experience amazing results and brag about how they “did it on their own,” with YOUR (virtual) help!
30 Day Follow Up Assessment and Accountability Tracking to Solidify You Clients Relationship
Because of the proven success of this program, you will find that more and more of your clients will want to become Coaches - just like you. Why? Because the results they get with Beachbody programs, combined with your (virtual) Coaching, are so quick and so dramatic, that their friends, family and co-workers naturally start asking them what they are doing to get in such great shape. It becomes a natural fit for the clients you successfully coach to want to become Beachbody Coaches themselves.
As new client referrals continue to come in for you and your team of Coaches (from everyone’s personal referrals and Beachbody’s $70 million dollar annual advertising campaign), you simply continue to work closely with your growing team to help them build their respective Coaching teams. Then, you could see your organization of clients and Coaches grow from a few clients and Coaches, to hundreds and maybe even thousands of satisfied clients and Coaches all across the nation – all contributing to you eventually seeing your income grow to 5 figures per month.*
Putting it All Together…
Here's how the overall math works without getting into the specific income side of things – which, by the way, can be quite substantial as it currently is for many of our Coaches:
Instead of coaching a total of 5 to 8 clients on a one-on-one basis in the short time you have each day (like you may be doing now), your new goal with the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program is to personally sign up ten or so new clients each month - with the help of your current client referrals. You are still always training ten or so people each month, but once they have learned the program with your help, they are now placed on your “maintenance program” (including supplements if you feel they are appropriate). Now your earnings from your clients become passive, rather than direct trainer earnings, and you are no longer just trading your valuable time for dollars.
At the end of the year, you could have 100 or so personal clients contacting (e-mailing) you from time to time for refreshers, to take progress photos and measurements, and to ask questions regarding other Beachbody exercise programs they may be interested in purchasing. However, your overall Team Beachbody business could have grown to hundreds and even thousands of clients and Coaches – all building you a nice income that allows you to work the days and hours YOU want to work.* With Team Beachbody your income potential is almost unlimited, because you are leveraging the success of other Coaches and clients you have coached in your organization.
NOW THAT'S A BUSINESS!
The end result – With the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program you now have the opportunity to make more money than you ever could working your business as you currently do, and your clients are rewarded for getting healthy and referring people into the program for you. EVERYONE is a more independent, empowered and healthy person. Doesn’t it now make more sense that your Clients don't need your individual help counting reps? They simply need to be empowered to succeed on their own once they know what they're doing! Then, they simply continue to enjoy the Beachbody exercise programs and possibly “upgrade” and become a Coach like you! This truly is a win, win solution for everyone.
By the way, this same formula and the Personal Trainer Virtual Flex Program, works for doctors who see patients that need help losing weight, gyms, chiropractors, nutritionists, and other health care providers. The point here is to empower people to be independently healthy, and you, your clients, and your Coaches reap the rewards in every way!
* The Beachbody lead generation program and income potential is based on the information outlined in our policies and procedures, and the Beachbody Coach Compensation Program. How many clients you receive and how fast you get them is based solely upon how well you build your business along with your ability to reach and maintain Emerald Coach status. Your results and income will vary. Please read the Team Beachbody Terms and Conditions, Policies and Procedures, and the Team Compensation program for complete details.
