I went through a rigorous Pilates certification training with one of the best Pilates training schools in the world, Body Arts and Science International. I learned from the best!
The experience was amazing and I love Pilates! I put a lot of money into my Pilates education and it took nearly a year to get through the program. I was serious!
Once I started training clients, I learned 2 important lessons that caused me to rethink my “dream job”.
- I was trading time for money which limited my earnings. What does this mean? If there are 8 hours in a workday, I can only work with about 6 clients or 8 at the most. Therefore my earning were limited to how many clients I could teach Pilates to in any given day. Red flag one: Limitations of trading time for money.
- Although I had Pilates appointments set ahead of time, clients think nothing of canceling at the last minute, leaving me to sit for 1 hour with no client and nothing to do. Red flag two: wasted time, no money.
I love Pilates but from a business standpoint, my earning potential was very limited without me working endless hours. I work hard, but I needed balance in my life.
I quit the Pilates instructor business. My dedication to Pilates for myself has not changed – I still have my own Pilates equipment and use it. I am also now a dedicated P90X and Insanity grad!
My business – well that’s another story. I found the Team Beachbody business by accident and am glad I did.
In over a year, I have earned more – working part time – than I could possibly have earned with my Pilates teaching. The best part if that my earnings are not limited to trading time for money. With this business model, I can still help people get fit and healthy without personal appointments that can take time and frustration.
The Team Beachbody business model is simply residual income based, which requires you to do the work once yet the money continues to flow in from it. It’s not dependent on the hours you work.
When you trade time for money, this type of earning strategy requires you to always be there. You won’t get paid if you’re not.
In addition, the people I help have a great advantage too. They can get expert fitness training from Beachbody’s amazing fitness programs (like P90X, Insanity, and Slim in 6) without the expense of a personal trainer or gym.
If you are still trading time for money, think about this: Your profits are limited to how much time you have available to actively work with your clients.
I invite you to take a serious look at the Team Beachbody business model.
