While Beachbody coaches work under a mentor, growing their business is their responsibility. It’s their dedication to the product and time investment that will ensure they get the financial results they want.
One of the ways coaches show their leadership skills and demonstrate their willingness to give of their time and knowledge is through hosting challenge groups.
It can be hard to put yourself out there for others—to really step up to the plate and be a leader in groups that are designed to help others get results. You work behind the scenes to provide the knowledge and tools that challengers and customers need while offering the encouragement and support that changes mindsets.
Challenge groups can be time-consuming, but I believe that they’re exactly what people need in order to see the results they want. They join groups to hit a weight loss goal, to fit into that dress, to feel comfortable going to the pool, to lose the double buckle on the airplane. And challengers are rewarded when they reach that goal. It works.
It works so well that I’m almost always part of a challenge group myself—even after 10 years as a coach. I get together with other coaches in my upline or downline and we support one another through our own journeys. The challenge groups and support are part of why many people become coaches.
If you’re a coach and you haven’t hosted your first challenge group yet, what are you waiting for? The first time you set one up is always the most difficult, just like the first mile in a training run is always hardest. But once you get your bearings, it’s a cinch.
Host a challenge with an accountability buddy. Ask your own coach for help or resources. But if you’ve never hosted a challenge before (or it’s been a while since your last one), I encourage you to get one going today. Whether you have 3 people in the group or 30, you will learn something new, move your business forward and be motivated to stick with a program yourself—all while you’re helping others meet their own goals.
If you need some help, let me know!
