The Beachbody Coaching Opportunity Changed Our Lives

“A Dream Come True.” – Thanks Beachbody Coaching

It’s been awhile since we reflected on our Beachbody journey, so we decided to give everyone an update.  We’ve been on one heck of a ride with Beachbody!  Sure, there has been some amazing times but lets not forget some of the hard times.  In this post, you will hear all about our Beachbody Coaching journey through the eyes of my wife, Lindsay Balmert.  You can either watch her incredible video or read her letter below the video – or both!  Enjoy!


A letter from Lindsay Balmert:

“Hey everyone.  I am Chris’ wife, Lindsay, and I wanted to share our Beachbody journey with you!

If you haven’t heard already, my husband Chris was able to payoff his student loans, making him DEBT FREE! This opportunity couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. We are expecting our first child in April! Now, that we have his debts paid, it’s time to start working on mine so we can be completely debt free as a married couple. None of this would be possible if it weren’t for Beachbody.

It’s amazing to look back at where we started. We had a little two bedroom, downstairs of a duplex for our first place. We were fresh out of college, working at “get me through” jobs until we were able to find a job in the field we just spent four years and a lot of money on! Living together for the first time was an experience enough, but trying to create a budget on hardly nothing was very stressful. Chris decided to get a job as a bar back. He would sleep during the day and work all night. I never saw him, and we weren’t able to enjoy the extra money he was making. We decided the little bit extra he was bringing in just wasn’t worth it.

We focused on doing things together that didn’t cost too much. That’s when Chris discovered P90X. Since he played baseball in college, he wanted to get back in shape and working out was something we could do together. I hate to admit it, but I fell off the wagon. I was still there supporting him though! He was constantly posting his progress pictures and accomplishments on Facebook. It was then when Josh Spencer approached Chris about the Beachbody Coaching opportunity. Chris talked to me about it, and I told him to go for it. I knew there was potential to make some extra money doing something he liked; all we really had to lose was the start up cost and the monthly fee each month. I had no idea what this would turn into!

Chris put a lot of hours into coaching. He would work all day, come home to workout, eat a quick dinner and talk to people on Facebook all night. I was starting to get upset because I was no longer getting his attention. I didn’t understand the amount of dedication Chris had to put in to making his business grow. This caused many fights between us and probably helped Chris make his decision to send in his cancellation papers. I took a step back and thought about how selfish I was. He was getting discouraged because he was spending so much time on his business, and didn’t have anything to show for it. I should’ve been there supporting and encouraging him instead of pouting about not getting attention. I told him it was a big mistake to quit coaching. Luckily, Josh was there to convince him that he too thought quitting was a mistake.

From that conversation forward, things began to look up. Chris started sharing with me what the business was all about. He got so excited when he would see his paycheck was $30 for the week! I could see that he really enjoyed helping people! He started to help more and more people, sending his weekly paychecks higher and higher. We were able to move out of the small duplex into a small house. We continued to be smart and save wisely. It was in May 2010 when Chris proposed. We were able to pay for our wedding using the money Chris was making with Beachbody. We didn’t have to put anything on a credit card or make payments. It was such a relief to be on our fully paid honeymoon,focusing on our next big adventure. We didn’t have to look back and question why we spent so much, and how we were ever going to get out of wedding debt. Things really took off for Chris in 2011.

Even after the wedding, we were able to save up enough money as a down payment on our new house! We were going to homeowners! In February 2012, we were moving into our new home! We were able to furnish the house with all new items. We could finally part ways with our pieces and parts of furniture from college and hand-me-downs. I was able to get a car I liked, an Acura, and he was able to get his toy for the summer; a Mercedes SLK. We were living a dream.

This year has been filled with so many exciting things for us. We moved into our new home, purchased a third “fun” car, traveled to Las Vegas for Summit, sold the “fun” car to get a “family” car with no car payment, don’t have to worry about going out to eat, don’t have to worry about how much the grocery bill is going to come to and don’t have to worry about how we are going to afford an extra mouth to feed.

Now that the baby is on the way, Chris and I have been doing a lot of reflecting on what we have. How many 27-year-olds can say they live in a model home, drive a new Mercedes Benz with no car payment, paid off all their student loans and know that their little bundle of joy will be taken care of with no worries?

We were also BLOWN AWAY to see we are on pace to break the $1,000,000 (ONE-MILLION-DOLLAR) earning mark in 2014!

We can’t help but only tear up when we think of that statistic!  Chris and I are truly, truly blessed. We have a life at 27 that most people work their entire lives to have. Beachbody has given us such an incredible gift; financial freedom and a healthy life. If we weren’t healthy, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy all that we have. It boggles my mind to think of where we could be if Chris would’ve turned down the opportunity to help others. Thank you Beachbody and Team Motiv8; we are forever grateful.

Thank you,
Lindsay Balmert”
