If you can’t get your bodyfat tested to figure out your Resting Basal Metabolic Rate, that is, the minimum number of calories you need per day, you can use the free calculator on It’s not 100% accurate, but you should get an idea. After getting my bodyfat tested using the most effective underwater method, I discovered that I need 1541 calories at a minimum DAILY. I should NEVER go under this number, even on my rest days. So, once you discover your BMR, do not go under this number! Once you know your BMR, you can calculate the number of calories you need for maintenance by multiplying your BMR by the following activity factor. And this is all copyrighted, kids, from Tom Venuto’s book: Find out your approximate basal metabolic rate: Activity factor Sedentary = BMR X 1.2 (little or no exercise, desk job) Lightly active = BMR X 1.375 (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/wk) Moderately active= BMR X 1.55 =(moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/wk) Very Active BMR X 1.725= (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days/wk) Extra Active= BMR X 1.9 (hard daily exercise/sports & physical job or 2 X day training, marathon, football camp, contest, etc.) Your Basal Metabolic Rate x 1.725 if you’re very active like me. That puts me at 2600 calories for maintenance. So, what this means is, I could eat this to maintain my body just as it is. I would not lose body fat or gain weight, as long as I remain very active. However, my goal is to decrease bodyfat. So If I create a deficit of 30%, I would need to... Read More


    Coaches weigh in and offer their tips on finding contacts and getting exposures: Facebook mostly. I am having some success at my new job so i hope i can multiply that to their friends/family. 2 hours ago via mobile · I go to find friends on FB and type any home town of my preference in Mexico (that ensures me they are Spanish Speaking) and current city in the US and send a friend request. My new contacts are coming from several FB groups in which I was added (professional, latino groups, etc) and by participating they see me comments, my picture and then we become interested, we engage and then we continue the one on one communication) Other contacts are coming from people that I’m helping (referrals). Also, I make my comments “public” and I get subscribers and then I review that and either they start making comments on my post, or I just engage and we start talking… 🙂  (I have 600+ friends who I actually know) and several indicated interest in a challenge. So I am exposing them and creating a little accountability group. I have posted my before and after pics and tag the program = thus it shows up on that wall This is something that I did a couple months ago just to make more potential contacts… I just went to my friends tab on FB and typed in my town and just started friending everyone that popped up.. I didn’t know ANY of them and only a couple questioned me on it and to those peeps I simply said Hi,... Read More

Getting to Emerald PLAN

    I’ve begun following this plan during our Getting Started Right training. This is helping my coaches advance to emerald asap. bankReaching EMERALD STATUS within your first month Why reach Emerald Status? But before we answer that, What is emerald status? What does it entail? WHAT IS EMERALD? You have two coaches that are ACTIVE (meaning, have 50PV or MORE in a 35 day period, preferably on Shakeology Autoship). One on your right and one on your left. Please reach out to your coach to help you with preferred placement!! This is very important. (NOTE: You must also be a Team BB Club Member to receive free customer leads.) How to set preferred placement The benefits of reaching Emerald Status: Free customer leads. These are folks who are ready to make a change!!! You never know who you’re going to get!!! You might get a future rock star coach. Become emerald as soon as possible and nurture your relationships with your customers! You can profit from team volume. What does this mean? As a an active coach (not emerald), you can only earn commissions. As an emerald coach, you can earn team cycle bonuses when people in your team sell products. Residual income is where the real income earning potential is. It’s not in individual sales. Watch this video on how to earn team cycle bonus: You can watch this one on rank advancement, too. You can start at minute 5 Let’s take an example: You sign up your husband on one leg and a friend on the other leg. You put 3 shakeologies... Read More

Brian Tracy Prioritizing Technique

    We are now going to be implementing a priority setting technique that Brian Tracy describes in his book, Eat That Frog. You may have already read his book. I’ve read it too, no worries. But I want you to examine your master list and label each of the items either A, B, C, D, E following these categories. You then place an A, B, C, D or E before each of the items on your list before you begin the first task. An “A” item is defined as something that is very important. This is something you must do. There would be serious consequences if this task was not completed. If you have more than one A task (and consider it carefully) then list them A1, A2 and so on. “Shoulds” versus “Musts” A “B” item is defined as a task that you should do. It only has mild consequences if not completed. These are the tadpoles of your work life. It may mean that someone will be unhappy or inconvenienced if you don’t do it, however it is nowhere near as important as an A task. The rule is that you should never do a B task if there is an A task left undone. A “C” task is defined as something that would be nice to do but for which there are no consequences at all. A “D” task is one that can be delegated to someone else. The rule is that you should delegate everything that anyone else can do, so you can free up your time for your “A” tasks that only you...

  By Barbie Kalev on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 1:18pm Signing up coaches is definitely a process and takes time. You don’t want to sign up just anyone, but those who are passionate about Beachbody products and have all of the qualities that it takes to succeed. One of the great things about the Challenge Group process is that you will be able to discover those who have the qualities it takes to become a successful Beachbody Coach because they will be the ones posting every day, getting results, and are very positive and supportive of the other group members. Once you find those type of people, you are going to want to approach them about becoming a coach on your team. Challenge Group Member to Coach Message: “Hey _________! Since you’ve started your Challenge Group, I’m unbelievably impressed with how supportive you’ve been to the other members, the results you’ve gotten, and how committed you’ve been to the workouts and diet. Because of that, I want to talk to you about joining up as a coach on my team. You have all the qualities it takes to become successful, and that’s why I want you on my team! I’d like to set up a call to talk to you more about it. I have _________ at ________ open. Let me know if that works ASAP as my schedule fills up VERY quickly!” This is the message that I use, and as you notice, I make it sound like a privilege for them to be joining my team, which it is, and I also don’t give them any...

Shakeology Testimonials

    Please contribute to this document. You can use this for your own business! Do you have a Shakeology testimonial to share? Has Shakeology changed your life in some way? Please share in this document. Write your full name and age, too. How has Shakeology changed your health? life? Tell us below. Dont forget to add your full name and age. Thank you! I’m Leslie Ambrose, 35 years old. I have struggled with high cholesterol since I was in my early 20’s. I was told it was genetic since my maternal grandfather had 5 bypass surgeries (when he was in his early 70’s) and then died of a stroke (at age 82). My mom and sister were both on meds for high cholesterol, and they were not big, unhealthy people. In fact, at the time I was diagnosed, I was heaviest of us 3 (and I’m also the shortest). I was never obese…my highest weight ever was 133 (lowest was 103…my happy and healthy weight is around 108). I worked out on and off since I was in college. Anyway, after about 10 years on Lipitor, I heard about Shakeology and decided to give it a whirl. I came off Lipitor but didn’t start on Shakeology right away (not until a year later) due to some unforeseen life roadblocks. After being off Lipitor for a year, my overall cholesterol was 229, and my triglycerides were 159. After just three months on Shakeology (not even working out consistently or losing weight), my overall cholesterol had dropped to 187 and my triglycerides to 82. No joke! I’ll never go... Read More

How to Hit Success Club in the last 72 hours–Amber Scott Call

        My notes: Coaches go to into two modes at the end of the month: —excuse mode or —they have to hit the points and they get desperate and gross. You can avoid those two and still hit your goal. TIPS: CURRENT CONTACTS THAT YOU’VE BEEN TALKING TO: —People panic and dont realize who they have as contacts. Write down the first name of the contact they have been talking to. Write next to the name: challenge pack or shakeology hd. And write down the number of points they would have if they bought. This changes the mindset. Contact them. Don’t contact them in PASSIVE WAY. You can’t afford that luxury. Contact them with a commitment level that you haven’t had before. “Hey can we talk tonite at 5pm?” Don’t make it general. Get commitment. LOOK AT YOUR CURRENT CONTACT BASE, people that you haven’t talked to in a while. “Hey, just checking in. How are you doing?” Subject: Is everything going well with your fitness? “Would you like to talk? Is there anything I can do to help?” they might be ready to act now. Follow up with everyone that you have ever talked to. Don’t just look at the current communication. You can go back a year. “Hey, you know what? I know it’s been a while, but I thought of you today.” You have no idea where they are in their life. Go back wayyyy back. Keep all your emails on FB. WITH NEW CONACTS, shift the way you speak to create more urgency. Speak to the benefits of the challenge. Not everyone... Read More
