Coach of the Week: Alesha Haley

Awhile back I decided to create a new feature for my team in order to celebrate those who were crushing their businesses and truly making a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.

And truly, it was hard to pick my first Coach to feature as I have quite a few gals who are just amazing, but I had to choose one.

Introducing my sweet friend, Alesha Haley.  She has been a coach on my team for 2 years and let me tell you, when she started, she took off like a rocket.

She was like a dream coach.  She had created online fitness accountability previously to becoming an online health coach with Beachbody, and she had fallen in love with helping people with find real solutions to their health and fitness struggles.

Over the last month, something triggered in her soul and that passion she had for truly making a difference in the lives of others resurfaced.

*She is consistently on the Top Volume Earner leader board that I share each week in our team page.

*She regularly posts valuable information and recipes to those that follow her on social media.

*She is a wife and mom to two adorable little girls.

*She created her own Team Manual for her brand new coaches who choose to join her team.

*She is creative and willingly shares everything she learns and uses for her business with her team, because she is that committed to helping them succeed.

*She is passionate and one of the sweetest women I know, and have yet to meet in person (which will happen soon!!!)

I have been so inspired by her hard work and passion that it has truly inspired and pushed me to be a better leader for my team and to consistently add more value to all of you who follow me so that you can be a better version of yourself. Because truly, isn’t that worth the hard work?

You can follow Alesha and all of her amazingness over on IG (@Alesha_haley) and on her blog.

Congratulations Alesha! Keep up the hard work!

Be a Size You,

New Leader Conference 2017

Finally, I am able to sit down and type out my greatest takeaways from the New Leader Conference that I had the privilege of being invited to attend this past weekend.

If you don’t know what the New Leader Conference (referred from here on out as the NLC), it is an annual conference that Beachbody holds for those who achieve Two Star Diamond and above in their business and they are invited to attend after meeting qualifications.  It is a once in a lifetime invitation for us coaches, so I can’t attend next year as a Leader to this event.  This was my one time!

I arrived to the JW Marriott Hotel at LA Live in Los Angeles, California and immediately I was able to attend the pre conference party and grab a quick photo with Carl Diakeler, Beachbody’s CEO.  He is an amazing human being.  I was able to chat with many of the staff members that work at Beachbody and they culture he has created with this company is unparalleled to any other company out there.  If you are a staff member at Beachbody, you cannot be a Coach, and many of them said that if they quit their job tomorrow, they would immediately want to sign up as a coach because they have absolutely fallen in love with the vision Carl has created with Team Beachbody and the Coach family.  That says a lot to me about the company I am partnered with.  They want to be a part of what we are doing in helping people live healthier lives. It is not about pitching products.  It is about the revolution to help people.

The next morning, we got to tour the Beachbody HQ’s in Santa Monica.  What an amazing company.  I went live on my FB page as I toured the facility and it made me so excited. They had a Shakeology Bar and their very own Shakista (like a barista!), a HUGE gym with a multiple TV’s so employees could workout via Beachbody on Demand.  They had two large kitchens stocked with Shakeology, Shakeology Boosts, performance formulas, and healthy fruits and veggies for snacking during their work day.

Yeah…it is pretty amazing!

It was a pretty amazing day and it felt like the tour went by really fast. There was so much to see and I was just in awe of the offices. I have worked in offices before and they are nothing like Beachbody! I would so work there!

Later that day, we had our opening sessions and trainings with top coaches in the network. More on my takeaways from those sessions in just a little bit.

That night, we had a cocktail party and we got to take pictures with Joel and Jericho, who co-created the Core De Force fitness program (which is what I will be doing next after I complete 22 Minute Hard Corps). I also had a chance to connect with some other coaches and learn what they were doing in their businesses and how they helped their coaches be better. I loved hearing everyone’s story because honestly, every coach had a different struggle or a difference resource that pushed them to get to where they are. There is truly no one size fits all coach.  I failed to mention that there were only about 250 coaches that qualified to attend this conference so everyone was super friendly and willing to share their knowledge with you. It made stepping out of your comfort zone (especially if you are an introvert like me!) a little bit easier.

The next morning, we got our butts handed to us by Joel and Jericho!!!!!

Core de Force is no joke and it was such an amazing workout.  I was so sore the next day when I had to head home.  My arms, abs, and lower body were definitely feeling the after affects!

It was amazing. And I heard through the grapevine that they will be registering soon for those who want to get certified to teach Core De Force Live at our annual Coach conference this year. What do you think friends? Should I do it?  I got certified to teach Cize, so maybe I should add one more! It is an awesome workout!

We had breakfast and Shakeology (of course! Healthiest meal of the day!), then I cleaned up real fast and headed to our next sessions with the top coaches in the network. We also got to hear from Darin Olien, the co-creator of Shakeology, and he really broke down bit by bit why he fought so hard to create a product like Shakeology and why the ingredients in Shakeology are the best the WORLD has to offer and from the best, most nutrient dense soils.  He travels around the world to do his research.  Hearing him share and hearing his passion come through about nutrition. It is not just about getting people to buy a shake. Their very health and lives are involved! We want them healthy!

Persevere
Team Building
Our One Word

At then end of the conference, we were asked to share one word that would perfectly describe why we were proud to be a part of Team Beachbody. Each person had so many different words that they chose, and each word had a story that was attached to it.

My word? Persevere.

I will share more on my word really soon, but what I see in the coaches is that no matter what, we persevere. Helping people choose health and fitness is not easy.  It is not as easy as buying new clothes that they can instantly put on and feel cute in.  Or skin care.  It is not instantaneous. We aren’t in the business of microwave results. it takes a lot of hard work and sometimes, the results are months in the making.  But we push through the no’s, we push past the doubts and even the criticism from those who don’t believe in what we are doing, because ultimately we know that there are those out there who need encouragement, support and hope in their struggle.

They need the push to fight for their own life, and we as Coaches get to do that. We get to help them fight.

We get to see them LIVE again.

My heart is so full after this incredible weekend.  I am excited for my new coaches who will be joining my upcoming New Coach bootcamp (still time to join us!).  I am still trying to process it all and sharing it with my team.  I have encouraged them to put the NLC on their goal board for next year.

It is a must attend event!

Thank you Beachbody for allowing me the opportunity to attend.  It was so incredible. Words fail me.  What Carl and the rest of the team have created for us coaches is superb and it is an honor to be a part of it.

Now, to get to work.

Be a Size You,

Loving Our Neighbors

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7 ESV

“By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.” 1 John 3:16 ESV

Have you ever felt, that perhaps as Christians, we are more known for the things we are against, than we are about our love for Jesus and for God’s people?

Have you been getting that sense?

When I watch the news at home, or when I am perusing social media, I see a lot of adjectives that describe those who follow Christ, and they aren’t pretty. The fruit of the Spirit is not evident in the eyes of public opinion.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5: 22-23 ESV

It is more evident about what we are against than what we are for during the political seasons in our country. It is the truth. More and more Christians will stand up with their Bibles blazing and their cherry picked verses to share why America is going in a terrible direction. We will share Memes that are passive aggressive in nature to let those who are not believers (without calling them out by name) why they are wrong.

I even read a comment on IG from a Christian woman that said if she were to be at a location where there was drinking or a bar, even if she were not participating in drinking, and she was with her friends who were drinking,  it would still be a sin and it would ruin HER Christian testimony.

What?

Sisters, there is a time to hold onto convictions. There are certain things I choose not to do because I know people are watching and I never want to make a new believer or even a person who is searching confused. I am not saying that we should not live above reproach. If you read the passages above Galatians 5:22-23, it lays out the Spirit of the flesh. (Context matters!)

Yet, when I look back on ministry of Jesus, He hung with sinners. He hung with tax collectors, fishermen, even a liar who would betray Him. Yet He loved, and He served them, and He prayed over them.

He broke bread with them. He wept over them.

Isn’t Jesus the example?  What does it serve us, truly, to mock others? To be angry? The direction of our country may not be ideal, very true, but I still believe GOD is in control.

If we see a fellow sister in Christ who may be acting or behaving or making choices that are dangerous or even sinful, social media is not the place for correction. Speaking the truth and reprimands should always be done in love and with a desire to restore a believer. It should never be done to condemn. We are not perfect people.  I can easily list off my own sins.

My point is this, sisters, we need to LOVE more. We need exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit. We need to pray for the Holy Spirit to fill us daily because cannot exhibit His love, His peace, His kindness, His gentleness, patience, goodness, self-control, faithfulness, joy on our own. It is impossible.

May we use our public testimonies not to tell those who do not follow Him what we are against, but what we are for. We cannot expect those who do not know Him to believe in Him or to behave like Christians. But, we can pray. We can love them.

We are for His kingdom. We are for love. We are for joy. They will know that we follow Him when we exhibit His standard of righteousness and love.

Be a Size You,

Tiffany
