From (Riches to) Rags to Riches


The Ronda Race Story

When I became a Coach four years ago, we had just lost everything.

My husband owned a million-dollar company in the new construction industry. When I wanted a new car, we bought our dream car. When we wanted to build a lake house, we bought lakefront property. When we wanted a toy, we bought a six-figure boat. Life, as we knew it, was pretty good.

We lost it all when the recession hit. Homes, cars, land, the boat, our two businesses—gone. We sold everything we owned out of our driveway. I was broken, lost, and had a major responsibly to keep it together for our family. Our two baby girls were my world, and I had to stay strong for them while we started over.

I got two jobs to bring in more income to pay for groceries and gas money. At this time our family was beyond stressed. I remember putting $15 at a time into my car to last until the next pay day. We were missing car payments, utility bills were paid late, and we nearly missed rent more than once. We had a budget of $70 a week for groceries. I started shopping at the dollar store for food and household items to make it work.

The tension in the house became stronger and stronger, and my marriage was on the rocks. I decided it was time to do something for me. I decided to say, “Yes,” to Coaching. I was completely unaware of the financial opportunity Coaching held, but nine days later when I had already paid off all my own Beachbody products, I realized this business could be a huge blessing for myself and my family.

And you know what? Only three years after making the decision to commit to Coaching, I was bringing in well over six figures working from home as a full-time Coach!

The freedom my family now has thanks to Beachbody Coaching is jaw-dropping. Today, I not only get to help my family purchase groceries and send my girls to swim class and gymnastics, but I also get to play a big part in financially contributing to our family’s lifestyle and the dreams we pursue. Next year, we’ll be able to purchase our dream home in one of the safest areas with one of the best school districts—and we would not be able to do this without Beachbody.

Also, we’ve moved three times since I started Coaching, and I’ve never had to look for a new job—I can take Coaching with me wherever I go!

More than anything, though, Coaching has helped me grow and evolve as a person. I am more confident and at peace. I’ve been able to work through the problems at home, and now my marriage is stronger than ever—not to mention that our combined incomes are now more than we were ever making before!

Being humbled has allowed us to never forget where we came from. I will never forget what it feels like to taste dirt, get up, dust yourself off, and grow wings you’re proud of one day at a time.

 Today, my family is blessed because their mom let go of her fear, learned to love herself, and took a leap of faith with Beachbody Coaching.
