Y’all I used to coach for Beachbody.
But I'm calling myself out with straight facts because it DID NOT work for me in the longterm...
Sure, I lost 10lbs in 3 weeks when I first started... But I WAS NOT able to maintain it! I gained it right back.
Which is why I developed my own coaching programs and founded Be About Being Better.
Here are the primary reasons I DON'T RECOMMEND BEACHBODY:
1. Their coaches are not licensed or certified professionals.
Anyone can become a Beachbody coach! Even worse, for a lot of people, it's a side hustle...
This is actually what prompted me to get certified as a Health Coach, start working on my Masters Degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, and become a Registered Dietitian!
2. Their meal plans tend to put people at TOO much of a caloric deficit.
I strongly dislike this because it promotes the idea “work out more, eat less,” which can lead to restriction, disordered eating, and eating disorder psychopathology.
This is why at Be About Being Better we don’t provide clients meal plans. Instead, we customize nutrition support for each client.
3. Their workout programs are centered around high-intensity interval training.
For women of a reproductive age, doing high-intensity or vigorous exercise during the luteal and menstrual phases of their menstrual cycle TURNS ON fat storage and muscle wasting.
4. There is no avenue for mindset support with Beachbody.
In order to heal our relationship with food, improve our body image, and sustain healthy habits when it’s inconvenient or we’re unmotivated, we need to work through our excuses, limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors.
The only way to do that is to coach someone through MINDSET SHIFTS!
The truth is, Beachbody doesn't have an avenue to prove that level of support to all their subscribers.
Listen! I get it! But here's the tea...
$99 for the year sounds like an AMAZING deal, but it’s $99 too much if it’s not allowing you to get AND KEEP your results!
