-About Coach Jay Jorgensen
Like many people I played High school sports and played through college. Basketball, cross country, and soccer to be specific. With that level of activity I really didn’t watch what I ate as I was mostly in shape. Well right after sports and college ended at it became time to enter into the corporate workforce although I maintained those poor eating habits, but no longer maintained the same level of activity and I gained over 50 lbs in 2 years. while being 6’3” that didn’t make me obese weighing around 250 pounds but it definitely effected my behavior, self esteem, and energy levels.
In 2010 I knew something had to change so I ordered a program called P90X. I completed the entire 90 days without skipping a beat because I wanted to have that dream body while still maintaining a career in the corporate world, it wasn’t easy but doable.
This is a picture my original 90 day transformation using P90X.
Soon after my transformation I accidentally learned you could become a representative for Beachbody by helping other people complete the programs, they are called Team Beachbody Coaches. This for me was the most exciting news I could have ever come across and I jumped on that opportunity asap. I learned that it was a Network Marketing Structure where you sign up a person, and they sign up a person, etc except it was very different than the stereotype’s one would expect from these type of structures, ya know, the awkward (Hey do you want to sign up for this and get rich quick, we will sell weight loss pills and take a rocket ship to the moon) LOL. No, rather this company was mission driven of first helping people the right way, through exercise and healthy eating. If a result of that is getting a little kickback from doing so, then awesome. I was a a little skeptical as I mostly had icky feelings towards those type’s of people but P90X changed my life and I just had to share and help other people get fit too, I didn’t care if it earned me a fortune.
Flash forward about 2 years of helping lives of those around me such as co-workers, friends, family, and church members It became a passion for me to change the world 1 person at a time using these programs and products. In fact so many co workers were having successful weight loss and just getting healthy, the company asked me to propose a Health and Wellness plan for the entire company. It was probably the worst presentation ever given LOL, after all I was a Technical Legal Adviser for an alarm monitoring company who simply had a passion for helping people. While no major proposal was accepted (if i had even successfully presented one) “ummm just love everyone and encourage them and do the DVD workouts and drink shakeology” they still endorsed me and asked if I could teach fitness classes. Fitness Classes!!! I had never taught fitness classes, I simply had just recommended workout programs and did them along side with people… I ended up learning how to teach classes and fell in love with it, I also became really good at coaching people online and creating facebook support groups for people doing the programs.
It became a full time job, I had dozens and dozens of people I was Coaching through Facebook and it got to the point where I replaced my salary and pursued my passion full time, I resigned from my corporate career. I wasn’t a fitness expert or nutritionist but rather someone who was passionate about helping people and I used Beachbody workouts to do the training and Shakeology/healthy eating to do the nutrition. I had built a large team under me where I was teaching other people how to coach and they were changing peoples lives which kept duplicating. We now have thousands of people all over North America on our team (over 25 thousand currently 08/01/15) and its amazing!! We even get to meet up several times a year whether its Summit in Nashville, or the all expense paid trips to the Bahamas!
I met Kati who is sitting on my lap in the picture above (Her blog and awesomeness can be found here) through Beachbody and we’ve traveled all over the world and built a HUGE team together. We currently reside in Palm Harbor Florida and have 3 pets, Winston who is a Samoyed, Baby Bear who is a Keishond rescue, and Claude Fancy Pants who is our 20 pound cat LOL.
We now recruit, train, and Coach other Coaches how to become successful in Beachbody. Whether its our weekly team calls, local Group Fit Club, Team Vacations, and of course getting in our workouts, we absolutely love what we do and can’t get enough.
If you are interested in joining our team and learning about the ins and outs of how to become a successful Beachbody Coach feel free to message me or Kati. Like I mentioned above I also run support groups monthly for anyone and they are always free whether you are apart of Beachbody or not, any way i can help please feel free to message me 🙂
