My 10 Year Coaching Journey


I'm Kristina, a driven and down to earth Mama who simply decided to re-write her story. I'm the girl next store who grew up in a small town, met her husband on the school bus and had no idea what she was going to do with her life...I definitely didn't think I'd be running a 7 figure business from my home where I am a mom first! How in the world did that happen? I made a decision to Change My Life....

I think we can all relate when I share that the first part of my like was a STRUGGLE...I was really lost. I didn't know who I was. You can say I lost confidence in myself. I was a total introvert and although happiness was showing on the outside, I was a total mess on the inside. BUT, here is where my story is different...after many years, in one moment I just decided enough was enough. I was tired of being tired. I was ready to OWN my "junk" and decide to LIVE because of it...from that moment on I can honestly say my outlook on life has changed and my mind has been OPEN to opportunities...I knew I wanted to do something GREAT with my life, I just didn't know what...

I believe opportunities come into our pathway all the time, but do we have the right lenses on to SEE them?

SO, I followed the two things I loved in life - dance and teaching. This led me to teaching group fitness classes in which I have been doing so for 22 years now! And YES, I still love it just as much! I managed a chain of women's fitness clubs for 13 years holding all roles from: recruiting, hiring, training, developing managers, sales, customer service, district managing multiple clubs, grand opening new facilities, hiring and training instructors and personal trainers and eventually being the fitness director for 9 clubs overseeing the group fitness and personal training departments for the entire company! I did not have a degree or credentials for any of these positions...I worked for them!! When an opportunity became available, I raised my hand and went for it. So I'm proud of this but I also BURNED OUT after many years in a toxic, corporate, political environment....My passion is in FITNESS and in PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT! I could care less about who is talking about who or who wants my job this week....I just wanted to go to work and love it....but I learned the hard way the corporate world doesn't always work that way....

In 2006, a friend pushed me to apply to become a Presenter for Chalene Johnson's Company, Powder Blue Productions. Let's just say THANK GOD to Anne for pushing me to do this because I would have never done it on my own. For 7 years I recruited, trained and certified over 1000 Instructors to teach her formats: Turbo Kick, PiYo and Hip Hop Hustle!! Another opportunity that built a ton of confidence in me and really taught me that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I met a whole new circle of people who WERE living their dream....this lit a fire in me, that maybe it was possible for ME to do the same....now to figure out how.

​My life would forever change on May 31, 2008 when an "opportunity" was given to me to become a Team Beachbody Coach and be apart of a LAUNCHING TEAM "Platinum Presenters"...this is the business that has taken me from unemployment from my full time job (2010) to a 6 figure income (2011) in less than 24 months!

Let's back up for a moment....

First of all - Who is Team Beachbody? The multi-million dollar Fitness Company and Creators of P90X, Insanity, 21 Day Fix, Turbo Fire, PiYo, Core De Force, Shakeology and a ton more. YEA you know who they are now. I was offered an opportunity to rep their products and help people get fit by becoming a "Coach" also known as starting your own fitness business within their company. A business in a box repping BRAND NAME, HOT products in fitness?? YES, sign me up! Haha, but really....how does this all work? I did my research and learned that this wasn't about "selling products", it was about building a T-E-A-M!!! At least if you want long term financial growth...something I could not get in my full time job of 13 years or in the industry I was in, PERIOD. Build a Team? I can do that!!! Selling - not so much...

Let's PAUSE for a moment because I want to share where I was at when I signed and started my fitness business --- I was working 50 hours a week in downtown Chicago. I was STRESSED to the max. I was gaining weight from all the hours worked. I was addicted to coffee bombs. I was unhappy with my job, my career, my decisions and my life. We were living paycheck to paycheck earning good salaries - how does that happen??! We were over $30K in credit card debt and didn't see anyway OUT OF THIS....I wasn't having FUN anymore. I started to give up on my DREAM to do something GREAT with my life...I felt trapped.

If you can relate to any of this, then you know why I said YES. I said yes because I wanted a CHANGE. I wanted to finally lose the last 10 lbs. I wanted to surround myself with positive people who WERE going after their dreams. I wanted a challenge. I wanted to help people in fitness and REACH MORE and this was a way to do it. I wanted to get out of stress debt. I wanted my own business without the risk of doing it the traditional way. I wanted to invite my friends to do this with me and PICK MY PLAYERS! I wanted more...

Sometimes all you have to do is ASK and tell yourself, I'm ready to make things happen...you will be surprised what falls in your lap...

O-P-P-O-R-T-U-N-I-T-I-E-S

Today, I'm a mom of 2 girls Brooklyn and Skylar. I work from home and help women just like me build the Coaching Business of their Dreams. My husband and I have paid off over $30K in credit card debt, we have built our dream home, we have retired my dad and we have started the girls college education plan. THIS IS CRAZY - this is our life! I have lost 50lbs, TWICE after both pregnancies using Shakeology and Beachbody home workouts. I teach Turbo Kick because I simply LOVE IT and inspire others to do the same. I have become an expert in mentoring women in what I do - specifically how to build a 6 figure income in Beachbody Coaching.

​I believe in family first! I believe in building ROCK SOLID RELATIONSHIPS with your people and they will SOAR above you. I believe in fairy tales and happily ever afters...but I also believe in HARD WORK, finding your purpose in your "junk" and going after your DREAMS is in our every day lives. I believe you have to pick yourself back up when you don't want to. I believe YOU are the only person who can motivate you and the ONLY ONE who can "Make It Happen".

You have the story...you have the skills...you have the struggle....if you are ready to re-write your story and make an impact to help others, let's get started!

If you are ready to change your fitness or your finances​ I'm your girl!

Let's Start this Party ALREADY!

Cheers!

-Kristina
