Recruiting Pains

wow I had no idea when i joined Beach body that it was a sales game. Every time I turn around someone else is trying to get me to switch coaches. It's really discouraging that so many people who claim to want to help you and encourage you only want to get you to buy stuff so they can get paid. I just finished Insanity yesterday and I had a coach and joined a group. After I said I was not going to buy Shakeology you think I got any support from them? NO
I got encouragement from a couple people. Maybe some people can afford the expensive supplements on here but most of us are just getting by and trying to take control of our health. I could buy shakeology or pay my light bill. What would you do? I learned my lesson here for sure.

Unfortunately, there are people who are only out for themselves in every company on the planet. Yes, there are some who work as independent beachbody coaches. You need to weed those out, and search out the ones that aren't in this game just to make money. Now, if a coach tells you they want to help out everyone and not get ANY compensation for their time, that would be a lie. There's a happy middle ground in there somewhere.

Find a coach that treats you right, regardless if you buy anything or not. Thats what I had to do initially, and finally found my coach. Then I became a coach myself, vowing not to be like the other coaches I've experienced in the past.

Great job finishing your program, its an amazing feeling for sure.

Good luck in your search, and start thinking positivly, there are some great coaches out there!

It is very unfortunate that some coaches are like that, I myself was asked multiple times to change coaches! It is also very sad that your own team is not supporting you even if you are not taking Shakeology...this is not right.

But...we are not all like that! Some of us have people's best interests first emoticon

Like CoachMarch is saying, stay positive...Beachbody is a wonderful community.

As far as supplements go, you definitely need proper nutrition emoticon

You can do it!!!

Sorry your coach dropped you for not taking Shakeology, I wish you the best of luck finding a good coach. I know there's plenty on here. I didn't take Shakeology for a long time but my coach kept helping me anyways. Good luck with your coach search, I really hope you find someone that suits you.

Well after finishing round One I have taken a week off. Minus one late fit test.
Per Customer service my shirt is on it's way and I hope it get's here tomorrow. (I been tracking STALKING fed ex)
Hopefully that will motivate me to start again on Monday! I still have a long way to go.
Provided my body will allow it I want to go through the 60 days again.
Thinking I may need more motivation this time around as it's not new and exciting anymore. Non the less I do look forward to more improvements. Doubt they will be in the fit test but in fat loss hopefully. So I am open to switch Coaches. If you feel you are up for the challenge let me hear from you. Just know....I have no intention of buying shakeology or other nutrition. I am going to try and do better on my eating though. I am always hungry and eating. Is anyone out there starting new on Monday? If so hit me up and maybe we can do this together. I will do my best to motivate you as well.
