“I’d love to coach but I just don’t have the time”
BUT I MADE IT WORK.
Trial and Error.
Trial and Error.
The big call
The sparkly shoes
Taking the stage
Let me debrief for you as I, myself, continue to wrap my head around this last week of excitement…
Last Thursday I received the official call from Beachbody Corporate – congratulating my INCREDIBLE – driven – dedicated – lead-with-their-heart TEAM on achieving ELITE for 2016.
I know to some its just a word – but to me – it means that the process I have created for helping other men & women get started on their health & fitness journey’s is being duplicated – and duplicated again and again as the leaders who make up this team pour their heart into serving others.
This was a goal I set for my team this year and it was amazing to be ONE of the 210 teams in the ENTIRE network (of over 400K+ coaches) who reached this benchmark!!!
We have many women who are continuously giving their time to serve others but these are the KEY LEADERS who made achieving this – ELITE – status come full circle for my One. Fit. Fam.
I feel its important to share that this achievement means that I am not just creating and building my own business – but I am creating a business that others want to be a part of – that others want to build too – so that they can achieve their personal & professional business goals and continue working towards a common goal.
I’ve always said: TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER and these are the moments where this holds true more than ever.
But that was just the start of the weekend…
The workout clothes were traded in for a cocktail dress and sparkly shoes as we set forth to kick off the January 2017 Super Friday event!!!
I am part of the Pittsburgh Market Council that plans our local events and this one was a big one.
Not only did we have an incredible venue booked with my own team’s success to celebrate but we had our CEO, Carl Daikeler coming to town to celebrate the 3x top coach accomplishment for Melanie Mitro and the #2 Master Trainer Kam Niskach.
It takes an army to put on these events and its truly an honor to be able to work with this team to make it happen!!!
But they had their own little surprise up their sleeves for this one…
To celebrate the ELITE accomplishment of all the local coaches, a compilation of the congratulatory calls was put together and shared during our Super Friday event.
Needless to say I was brought to tears!
So much of what I do as a coach stems from my desire to be at home wtih my kids and also still contributing financially to my family while living out my passion and living my life WITH PURPOSE.
This career as a coach has allowed me so many experiences & opportunities and has taught me invaluable life lessons…and it was fitting to have my kids on my lap when I received that phone call!
Our night closed out with my team, in our PJs, in my hotel room as we chatted the night away, shared stories and prepared for day #2!
I was blessed to be amongst this incredible group of leaders with a slot to share some of my tips and tricks for taking ACTION towards your goals!
We met early in the morning – we did our run through – and we simply SUPPORT each other.
Some of these women are my mentors – some are those I simply admire and all of them are women i am INSPIRED by on a daily basis.
When it was time to take the stage I was nervous, slightly emotional from simply being MOVED by the story I just heard but excited to shake it and go for it!
It was time to share some of MY STORY.
I got to share how I started my business using little pockets of my day…how I started MAKING time to build my business and SACRIFICED things to make it happen!
My kids were little
I was still adjusting to the stay-at-home-#momlife of two
And just like that I decided to add COACH to my title…and I went all in and never looked back!!
I had no idea then…where I would be now.
But I trusted the process.
Had faith in my mentors.
And confidence that if I kept doing all the small things daily the compound effect prove its worth.
If you would have told me taking the stage would come with this territory I would have ran the other way!
But today I stand proud that I have learned to take chances!
With every opportunity I learn and stretch outside those comfort zones and in turn GROW!!!
Here’s to 2017—continued growth-fearlessness-and opportunities!!!
If you’re interested in learning more about what I do as a coach and how you could get started and JOIN MY TEAM – fill out the form below and I will get back to you within 24 hours!
***THERE’S POWER IN NUMBERS***
Its January –
Its a brand new year full of brand new opportunites.
A chance to start fresh with a clean slate and really think: what do you want? in your personal life? Professional life? Future?!?!?
The older I get the more I understand: LIFE IS SHORT – YOU SHOULD SPEND YOUR TIME DOING SOMETHING YOU LOVE.
I feel very fortunate to have truly found my passion in life and to be doing something EVERY single day that LIGHTS a fire within me and I’m looking for other women who get that same VIBE.
I’m launching a very special training this month as I SEARCH FOR MY FAB 5!
Who are the FAB 5?
They’re 5 fabulous ladies who want to be a part of my One. Fit. Fam.
5 ladies who are ready to commit to these first 3 months of 2017 with me – and my TEAM.
5 ladies who are ready to join and embrace my new: ME – WE – YOU training program…
You see first you join me! You see how this challenge group stuff works (because helping others is the root of this business) and you follow along with a fitness program and Shakeology so you can not just talk the talk but walk the walk. This is crucial!
Call me bias but I believe my personal success as a challenger propelled me into my business success as a coach! Don’t worry…we talk more about this in our mentor program!
In month two we work together. We begin our walk through the business roadmap. I walk you through HOW you get started & through WHAT you need to do.
I share EXACTLY what I did to get me to where I am and we talk through every step! This is a new thing – its a business – and in order to learn you’re going to have to ask questions and together…we work through them!!!
You’ll complete my New Coach Training program and together we LAUNCH your business! You are not alone! In fact, you’re never alone in this business. Its a team effort from the start!
Once you complete the first 2 months – Its time to put everything you’ve learned into action.
As we start our 3rd month together you’ll begin to lead, continue to grow, and take part in the next leadership opportunities offered through our team trainings. I’m still here…like I said – I’m always HERE but at this point you’ll have the confidence and ability to step out and go for it!
I believe 3 consistent months through this mentorship program will provide you with the skills you need to get up and RUNNING and head into 2017 full force!
This group is limited to 5 for a reason.
Because I believe that in order to succeed you need the mentorship.
I will not be taking on more than 5 ladies this months so that I can be confident I am giving my best me to those who invest with me!
If you’ve been waiting to do this – thinking about it – doubting your abilities and holding back. I simply ask you to STOP.
Go all in!
What do you have to lose?
Please fill out the application below to be considered for one of the five spots that I have open.
We start January 9th!
Some days its a tough job to be a full time mom, nurse, chauffeur, chef, piggy bank, teacher, amusement director, maid, secretary, monster slayer, referee and professional snuggler..tack on ANOTHER full time job, jammed together with volunteering activities, and maybe just a date night already (please!) and —- I think its safe to say we all agree ITS WORTH IT…
But its also exhausting!
So when do we find time for ourselves without feeling GUILTY that we’re not tackling one of the other 100 things on the to do list?
Busy moms know how to do a lot of things – namely – GET SH*T DONE!
But they also need to LEARN how to also take some time for themselves…because a happy healthy MOM – spreads to a happy healthy FAMILY!
30 minutes is all that you need a day.
Let’s talk about 30 minutes to workout, 30 minute family friendly meals.
Did you know that if your dedicate 30 minutes a day to yourself — to working out — that is ONLY 2% of your entire day!
2% – not too shabbby right!
No need to mess with day care or commuting to a gym – its all in the comfort of your HOME!
Most weeknights we are running out the door to sports or practice or whatnot and food prep has become CRUCIAL to us all!
FALL around here is CRAZY TIME and let’s be real…that crockpot flipping rocks! But you have to actually USE it to benefit from it!!!
Are you looking for healthier meals to feed your family while on the go?
Are you exhausted from always being on the go?
Do you WANT to find ways to fit it in – but struggling to figure out how to find the ever IMPORTANT – BALANCE?
Join me in my upcoming Challenge Group and lets put those struggles behind you!!!
Don’t even think now about what you have to lose…but really you should be asking yourself what do you have to GAIN??
Whether you’re interested in the new recipes – the increased CONFIDENCE – more ENERGY – Daily Support – or all of the above…if you can commit you will succeed!
And with the overwhelming success of my Miracle Morning themed group from September – I’ve decided to incorporate a new book into this challenge (thanks to an awesome challenger and her recommendation): The Busy Mom Devotional.
“No workbook – No sequential daily readings. No guilt at falling behind. Just you and God, pausing together.”
I know what its like to be intimidated.
But trust me when I say – its the START that STOPS most people.
Don’t be like most people!
Fill out the form below to be considered for a spot in my next group – LAUNCHING October 17th!!!
*Must not be a Team Beachbody coach or be working with another coach!
I have just returned home after a 5 day trip for our Team’s Retreat in Destin Florida and I am filled with so many emotions!!!
So many amazing takeaways from this trip and while I want to run, put my blinders on and get to work, I also need to take a moment to reflect on this incredible getaway!!!
I have hosted my own for my team and this is the second retreat I have attended with my upline sponsor coach and I cannot say enough POSITIVE things about the after math of attending something like this!
The theme was
TO BE A PINEAPPLE.
To stand tall
Wear a crown
Be sweet on the inside!!!
We had our team there filling one house on the Beach and together with the other Dream Team Coaches – we filled 5 mansions in Destin Florida with 10+ Elite coaches in the network led by our fearless leader, the #1 Coach in all of Beachbody.
There were corporate led trainings, team led trainings, small group breakouts, parties, fun, dancing, dinners, group workouts, late night chat sessions, and more!
You could say it was a bit of a powerhouse event!
I’ve heard so many women say they don’t have girlfriends and they get along better with men and that is sad to me, because when confident, happy, secure women come together in friendship, amazing things happen!!!
I’ll admit I got a bit anxious leading up to the event. I mean 14 girls in one house – PLUS – over 100 girls coming together for games and trainings…its a lot to take in!!!
But I know the importance of events.
And as expected, I walked away from this event with new friendships, stronger bonds, and perhaps a 6 pack in the making from all the laughter!
I want to share a bit with you all so you can understand that this wasn’t just an opportunity to unplug and soak up some rays…but rather an opportunity TO GROW our businesses, our confidence, and improve the overall quality of our LIVES!
I arrived on Wednesday evening and Thursday kicked off our Team’s trip!
We all watched the sunrise together
Then naturally we took things to beach to get started!
We got sweaty, had some fun, then got to the beach!
This was our one FREE day…and I took full advantage of it!
I’ve been preparing for my upcoming Miracle Morning accountability group and this was the perfect setting to dive in and get to practicing what I was about to be preaching!!!
Friday night we got together with the other 5 houses and together, 125 Beachbody Leaders strong, we competed in the BEACH OLYMPICS!
I’m not sure I ever laughed so hard!
From crab crawls in the sand, to wheelbarrow races, to 3-legged races, to running with a pineapple on my head – this was hands down one of the most fun nights of my LIFE!
Our team may not have one the trophy but we did win with the most laughs!!! #TeamPurple rocked it for sure!
Saturday it was time to Learn!!! From 9-5 we heard from some of the top leaders at Corporate and the top leaders in the company.
From social media trainings, to recruiting, to creating independent leaders, to creating a powerful vision, to leading with a PURPOSE, to learning how to JUST BE YOU and lead from the heart with the goals and impact you have on others in the heart of what we do!
Things slowed down as we wrapped up our training session, regrouped, then headed out for margaritas and tacos! Because what group of women doesn’t like margaritas and tacos?!?!
There were many moments of reflection and many moments where I just had to stop and pinch myself.
This is my life.
This is my career.
These are the women and people I CHOOSE to spend my time with.
Who lift me up
And EMPOWER me to be the best mom, friend, wife, coach, sister and daughter possible!
The trip was perfect.
I am grateful for the generosity of my coach and grateful for the team bonding we all enjoyed!
I know I say this a LOT.
But its true.
This career. this opportunity, has BLESSED me more ways than I ever imagined!
No one tells you when you buy a challenge pack looking to lose a few pounds that you may just stumble upon one of the greatest career opportunities out there!
I am grateful and I am blessed and I want to share this opportunity with others!
If you see yourself in these pictures above – if you’re reading this thinking – this is ME or THIS COULD BE ME – or I WANT THIS TO BE ME let me share more with you!
I was not a fitness expert and I’m still not.
I was not a nutritionist and I am still learning something new every day.
I was not at my goal weight and somedays I am at it and others not so much…its a journey.
I only posted on social media to share periodic pictures of my kiddos and NEVER liked or commented on anyone else’s pictures…#didntwanttobeacreeper
I thought people who took selfies were self absorbed & CR-A-ZY!
I never wanted to be called a “sales person”
I didn’t have Instagram or a Blog and had no desire to learn them.
And the list goes on……
Those concerns you may have about coaching…Yes ma’am – I had them too!
But you know what I realized? I knew I had POTENTIAL.
Potential to build a business while at home with my littles…
Potential to help other women lose their baby weight just like ME…
Potential to help women simply FEEL confident again…
Potential to provide for my family…
So you know what?
I pushed those fears aside and went for it.
I won’t say its always easy living my life out loud on social media but heck yes its worth it!

The sand, the sun, the fun, the friends, the trainers, the workouts, the fancy dresses, the dinners out, the desserts, the late night laughs….this my friends was a week of coach life at its finest.
If you have been wondering where I have been this past week, I have been atop of the largest cruise ship – the Oasis of the Seas for the 2016 Team Beachbody Success Club trip!!!
This is my second success club trip, one which I earned for myself and my amazing hubby for HELPING others get started on their health and fitness journey & starting their very own businesses – aka earning success club points – throughout 2015 which in turn paid for our trip…and then some!
And while it was my second trip it was the first as the leader of an ELITE team and we kicked things off with this adorable little welcome bag!
In addition, we were spoiled with onboard credits to use for our excursions, spa trips, drinks and gifts which pretty much left me in awe as I sat back and realized what an incredible impact that simple decision was to sign up as a Beachbody Coach —— EXACTLY 2 years ago!
My husband and I left last Wednesday, enjoyed a few days visiting family in Texas, left our littles with the grandparents and flew down to Florida bright and early Saturday morning.
We did everything from lounging in the pool, drinking coconuts at Cabbage Beach in the Bahamas, to hiking the Dunns River Falls in Jamaica, to a couples massage at the spa to networking with my team, our friends, and other coaches in the network!
Its been such an honor to work with a company like Beachbody that truly SPOILS us!
We enjoyed the Elite Reception on our first night enjoying champagne, hanging out with the celebrity trainers and of course eating…yes we may be coaches but we like to EAT!
Last year I hopped on this trip solo with the hubby and this year I had one of my own personally sponsored coaches with me who just happens to be my lifelong best friend – and next year I already have several members of my tribe registered for trip!!!
The success is awesome but when you start to see that ripple effect through your team as they get to earn the trips too – that feeling cannot be beat!
It was also pretty cool to watch our Beachbody spouses bond too! This business of mine is far from a one women show.
He’s my biggest fan, biggest supporter and shoulder I lean on and seeing the guys hang out and have just as much fun as the girls was pretty darn awesome!!
We squeezed in daily live workouts with each of the trainers, from
Tony Horton on Day 1
to Sagi Kalev on Day 2
to Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews on Day 3
and wrapping up with Autumn Calabrese on Day 4.
There is something about doing the live workouts with the trainers that just makes you push harder, jump higher and THRIVE!
It’s just an amazing experience to be surrounded by your friends and other coaches just doing our fitness thannnng – TOGETHER!!!
I also earned a photo opp session for being one of the top life changers in the first week of March and I snuck in a picture with each of the trainers and our incredible CEO – Carl Daikeler.
Wednesday was our last full day on the ship and we coined it “ADVENTURE DAY”. We kicked off the morning with our workout, breakfast then climbed the very challenging rock wall and then ended with the zip line!
Our afternoon was spent lounging, reading, napping and relaxing as we sailed home!
This was truly a TRIP of a LIFETIME and as much as I enjoyed it, I am so so so ready to get home and see my littles!

Happy Valentines Day!
Yesterday we packed up the fam, joined forces with some friends and traveled to State College PA to visit a good friend, my business success partner, who has been hit with a few curve balls of life!
And well, you can’t surprise a friend on Valentines Day weekend without showing up with a little treat!
I have been trying to really limit my dairy intake after a recommendation from my dermatologist and she is on a gluten free diet so I decided to take the best of both worlds and whip up a new recipe of shakeo no bakes!
The cinnamon most definitely spiced things up and the rice krispies added a nice little crunch! See HERE for the full recipe.
And while the cookies were a hit and the day was a blast what I really came home focusing on is what I found at the bottom of that challenge pack box nearly 2 years ago.
Like I said above, this trip was to visit my business success partner – who is now one of my closest friends who I talk to on a daily basis.
But before we became really amazing friends, business building MOMpreneurs and a support system for each other – we were CHALLENGERS – together – in a CHALLENGE GROUP – trying to fight off those last few post baby pounds.
We both contacted our now coach, purchased the 21-day fix challenge pack, and got to work! We were bonded on that common goal and through the success of the group & reaching our goals we began to realize there’s so much more in that box than a workout program & meal replacement shake. We could pay it forward and share what we learned to help others!
We were challengers who found a passion for supporting one another and we became coaches. It wasn’t part of what I expected from that challenge pack box but what I soon realized is that I gained so much more than I bargained for!
Today we spend our time helping other MOMS and other WOMEN reach their health & fitness goals and build their own businesses from home. I finally feel like I have a purpose beyond someone else’s employee and beyond the roles of a wife and mom.
I have the opportunity to make a DIFFERENCE in this world and so can you!
My team is hosting an open house next Tuesday, February 23rd and you’re invited to join us! To hear about how I went from a CPA, Accountant – to Stay at home mom – to Work from Home MOMboss!
*Must not be working with another coach
Do you have a WHY?
A WHY – a reason why you do what you do?
WHY you work so hard every day?
WHY you make the daily choices and daily sacrifices?
Do YOU – have a WHY?
I’ll be the first to say – my WHY I life changes as my life changes
When I first signed up to be a Beachbody Coach – my WHY – was because I needed the discount and I needed to save some money money money!!! And becoming a coach gave me a discount on the products I already loved and truly needed in my life to help me overcome my Chrons Disease, have more energy to be with my kids and all around be a happier, healthier person.
Then I realized that I had the power to use the products to help my close friends and family and help them improve their QUALITY of LIFE.
In time I began to realize I had something pretty darn POWERFUL at my fingertips. So I just kept sharing. With EVERYONE. EVERYWHERE I could…PASSIONATELY. And in time I created this business – working from home while still holding my title tight as a Stay At Home Mom but I was adding a new title to the mix – I was becoming a MOMpreneur!
I won’t pretend that this is a perfect fit for everyone but in my opinion, it did give me the best of both worlds!!
In less than 2 years I have been able to improve not only my own Health & Fitness – but the overall health of my husband, my parents, my inlaws, my siblings and HUNDREDS – yes literally HUNDREDS of others while simultaneously contributiing financially to our household. It started small at first with the monthly groceries…and soon I was able to cover those and my student loan payments – a few weeks later I added on my car payment and a few months later I added my mortgage as well. Its still a bit mind blowing at times – but it is reality!
This opportunity is truly life changing and I want to share it with YOU!
Yes – I had reached my dream come true life as a Stay At Home Mom –
But I needed something MORE and this gives me that something MORE!!!
My WHY is now pure FREEDOM.
Freedom to give freely to others – to help those who are struggling with life’s curve balls and help them find a way out!
To FREEly live the life I used to think was only found in fairy tales and give my children a life of presence with me and our entire family!
I will be taking on 5 new Coaches in my February Coach Training Academy – 5 ladies who want to BUILD a business and join my TRIBE!
Request HERE to join my 2 hour live event on Tuesday January 26th – get answers to any and all questions and find out if this opportunity is the right fit for YOU!
