Beachbody Coach Opportunity.. A real chance at real freedom, real success, and real happiness!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, health and fitness coach Beachbody, top beachbody coach PA, stay and home work from home mom, healthy new mom, home fitness business, forever fit, weight loss journey, financial freedom fitness, military wife, healthy lifestyle, beach body coach opportunity, fitness coaching opportunity

The craziest thing I hear so many times recently is “Go get a real job.” Or “Oh, that Beachbody scam she does can’t possibly be a career.” Those people who are saying this to me, or hoping I would hear it… I am happily going to educate you on what I do so no one is confused and making these misconceptions about my career as a work from home mom and fitness coach.

4 years ago before starting this whole crazy Beachbody Coach gig, I was a full time ER Nurse. I absolutely loved what I did as a nurse, but 2 years ago, I quit nursing to stay home with my boys and work from home while still being able to fulfill my passion for helping others. But instead of helping people in the hospital, I was then helping people stay out of the hospital and preventing them from acute and chronic illness such as Diabetes (one of the worst diseases killing millions of people), cancer, obesity, heart disease, and more.

Since working from home and running my own fitness business, I have gained so much from life, than many with “real jobs” never get a chance to even experience… maybe thats why they don’t call what I do a real job??

Possible reasons why I am getting questioned about what I do:

  • I sell products off a website
  • I build a team which helps my long term income and stability
  • I don’t clock in and out at a building with a name on it
  • I don’t wear a uniform to work or have certain attire that is required daily
  • I don’t have a boss to tell me what to do
  • I run my business through social media and talk to people all over the US and Canada (and soon to be international)
  • I didn’t have to go to college for this education or have a certain experience/training before starting
  • Some of my trainings and trips I attend as a coach are at resorts, vacation spots, and I’m having a blast doing it

These reasons are absolutely reasons to question what I do! We are all entitled to our own opinion and have the right to be skeptical and curious!!! Which is WHY I am going to answer ALL these concerns!

  1. I do sell products off a site! I sell products that have changed MY life and my family’s and friends! They were my guinea pigs first along with myself to see if these products actually worked! What I have found is answers to many people’s questions and complaints about a healthy lifestyle! I found workouts with real certified trainers like the 21 Day Fix, Hammer and Chisel, and Core De Force, that help you get through a real workout. In these programs, you get nutrition plans with recipes to help you eat healthy for you and your family! You also get to calculate your caloric intake and figure out what you should be eating each day according to YOU and your lifestyle and goals. Oh, and that Shakeology stuff…. yes, thats real too! I have not found ANY other meal replacement shake that gives me the energy, helps my digestion and bloating, and gives me the nutrients and superfoods that Shakeology does. This isn’t for everyone either, this is for people who go for quality for their health and who want to live a healthy lifestyle the right way… working hard, exercising, healthy eating, and getting support, motivation, health and fitness tips from me as their coach! NO wraps, diet pills, patches, nothing temporary that could possibly be called a scam or bad products that don’t work! The only way it doesn’t work is if you stop trying!  So I do sell products that are life changing, and I also sell health and happiness!
  2. I build a team which helps my long-term income.  No, this is NOT a pyramid scheme and I do NOT make money from the people below me… If I am not working, people who signed up after me can pass me up and make more income than myself! How this does work though, is when you find other like-minded people who are ready to hustle and change lives, you are all building a team and helping others which builds volume, which leads to long term income that doesn’t disappear just because you don’t “sell” something that day or week. As I build a team, I do less “selling” and more training to help my coaches to become successful themselves in running challenge groups to help people along their fitness journey! I was able to triple my nursing salary when I actually quit nursing to work full time as a Beachbody coach, and I don’t know about you, but income is income and either way, that is food on my kids table and a roof over their head! I, just like others with a real job have been able to pay off debt, put money away for my children, take my kids on vacations, and have holidays for them without stressing about what is in my bank account… and not everyone with a real job can even say they can do that… I know working as a nurse, I still struggled to get debt paid off and have extra set aside.
  3. I don’t clock in and out of a building with a name or title on it. No, I don’t work at ____ Hospital anymore… I wake up and while my boys are still sleeping, I go downstairs sometimes in my Pj’s and answer a few messages. Then my boys wake up and I get them ready for school and my youngest Wes hangs out with me during the day and we work together, with a little play time in between! I also can take breaks when I need to so I can attend my kids events and sports which has been such a blessing! I do not have a time clock to where I get paid by the hour. I make up my own hours according to what is best for me and my family, and I can work wherever I feel like because my business is worked online! I don’t have to leave my kids.. they watch me help people via computer, phone, and if they are close, my challengers and coaches come over and we workout together, meal prep together, and have fun! I know that doesn’t even seem like a real job… it seems like a dream right?! Well, the beauty of your life is YOU get to pick what you do and where you work! You picked your life and career, and I will be in charge of mine!
  4. I don’t wear a uniform to work. Nope, I mostly wear workout clothes, but sometimes I work in my Pj’s! If I’m on a trip, I even wear a fancy outfit, or a bathing suit! I think my favorite part is the yoga pants though! They are pretty comfy and you can find really cool ones with cute designs!!
  5. I don’t have a boss telling me what to do. Nope.. I am MY OWN BOSS. I answer to myself. I don’t have someone I have to report to for an evaluation for a bonus or raise.. I simply help more people and give myself my own raise! Sounds pretty cool, right?!
  6. I run my business through social media. This might really get people. Like how can you run a real business using social media?!?! Well, it’s something called network marketing and it’s as real as it gets! You have the ability to not be stuck to help people or work with people only in the area you live! You have the ability to help people from all over, make friends from all over, and it’s a pretty wonderful thing! When you limit yourself to a local area, your limiting your success… this is an opportunity for you to change so many lives in so many different locations!! This is also how I share my journey and story so I can find other like-minded moms, military families, and fitness lovers who want to empower other women… because that is my true goal in life!! To empower women and help them see they can be independent, strong, and successful no matter what trials and tribulations they have encountered in their lives!
  7. I didn’t have to go to college or have an education to get my fitness coaching job. Sure didn’t, and that may come off crazy, but it’s not about how much you know, its about how hard your willing to work, how passionate you are about what you do, and how much your willing to learn and experience along the way! As a successful coach, I have my own trainings to help my team grow a successful home business themselves! I teach my team how to brand themselves, how to communicate with potential challengers and teammates, and learning about what Beach body is and what we stand for!
  8. I travel and my trainings are at resorts, vacations spots, and I have fun doing it! The problem with society is we are put in a place that we are suppose to think of a job is being something you hate going to… something you dread… all you who clock in on Mondays who work your 9-5 or swing shifts.. you dread Mondays and the start of another week…. I get it, I’ve been there and done that! But is that really how we should live?? I don’t live in a  fantasy world, I live in a world that you should be happy and feel complete with what you do every day, because you spend a lot of your life doing that and you only live once and you better live it to the fullest! So yes, I have fun working, traveling, and spending quality time with my friends that I choose to work with… because I have that ability!

I have the ability to choose this as my career, just as you have the ability to choose your career and your happiness! I hope this whole Beachbody coaching gig makes a little more sense to you now. It’s a real job that can give you real freedom with your family and loved ones, real happiness, and real success!

Again, its not for everyone! Its for people who love to be healthy and want to share their journey along the way, want to make friends and surround themselves around other positive and uplifting people (because we are pretty positive… even in the darkest times we find faith, hope, and a good future), and aren’t afraid to work in yoga pants at any hours of the day you want!

YOU CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY!

If you read this and it seems like a perfect fit for you and you would be a great asset to my team Forever FIT, please fill out my application below for a spot in my New Coach Training so I can help you find that freedom, happiness, and success!!

Weekly Healthy Kid Meal & Snacks!

As a mom, sometimes it’s tough to get our kids to fuel those little bodies because they are picky, and just don’t always like to eat! I have done trial and error with my kids and have found some easy healthy ways to get them to enjoy eating without putting tons of artificial sweeteners and chemicals in their bodies and its cost effective too!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, kid healthy snacks, healthy kid lunches for the week, healthy new mom tips, weight loss journey, healthy military family, top beachbody coach PA, top online fitness coach PA, healthy school lunch ideas, clean eating tips, healthy family tips, health lifestyle, kids picky eaters, obesity kid prevention

So I want to share with you an example of a weeks worth of my kids lunches for school, but also can be used as healthy snacks!

  1. Peanut butter rice cake with cucumber and hummus
  2. Ham and cheese sandwich with apple and cinnamon (the cinnamon will keep your apples from turning colors) and almonds
  3. Chicken, go-gurt, and fresh blueberries
  4. banana and peanut butter sandwich, carrots, and light string cheese
  5. Whole wheat and cheese quesadilla, apple sauce, wheat Scooby -do graham crackers
  6. Peanut butter on whole wheat cut outs, dried mango pieces, cashews
  7. Low sodium ham wrapped on light string cheese, rice cakes, fresh mixed raspberries and blackberries

It’s also easy to pre make some of these and have them all ready to go! As I meal prep, I prep a lot of my kids food and place them in sandwich baggies! I cut up the veggies and wash the fruit, cook chicken, and make sandwich cut outs a couple days in advance!

When it comes to my kids, health is a priority! Showing them a healthy lifestyle early, will prevent obesity and health issues in the future! Just as we teach kids to brush their teeth, make their bed, and pick up toys, we can teach them how to eat healthy, but still allow them to enjoy food!

Unicorn Shakeology

Ok, so you may have seen the huge talk on the Unicorn Starbucks drink that people are going crazy over right? Well, I will def say a cheat meal is ok, but people are truly addicted to Starbucks and not always in a good way. The taste may be great for people, it may give them energy, but what about the nutrition? So many of these people will complain and talk about how they are unhealthy, out of shape, and unhappy, but yet, they continue to make choices to drink drinks such as this full of calories, carbs, sugar, and artificial sweeteners and flavors!

So as a fitness coach, my job is to help people find the healthy alternatives so you can still enjoy your food and drinks, but removing the crap that does not help you get closer to your goals, and add in dense nutrition and superfoods and will not leave you feeling guilty!!

So here it is!!!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, unicorn shakeology, unicorn starbucks, healthy milkshake, healthy shakeology recipes, vanilla shake logy recipes, strawberry shakeology recipes, health shake meal replacement, superfoods, antioxidants, weight loss journey, healthy new mom recipes, get fit for summer, healthy ice cream, military wife and fitness, work from home mom, healthy kid treats

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 scoop vanilla Shakeology
  • 1/2 scoop strawberry Shakeology
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries and raspberries
  • 1 tsp natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 squirt sugar free whipped cream
  • 1 tsp sprinkles

Directions:

  1. With a blender cup, add 4 ice cubes and 4 oz water.
  2. Add 1/2 scoop Vanilla Shakeology.
  3. Add 1 tsp natural peanut butter.
  4. Blend… and set aside in a cup.
  5. Rinse cup and add another 4 ounces water and 4 ice cubes.
  6. Add Strawberry Shakeology and 1/2 cup fresh berries.
  7. Blend….
  8. In a separate cup, add both strawberry and vanilla to one cup, one at a time to separate the colors.
  9. Top off with Whipped cream and sprinkles!
  10. ENJOY!!!!!!

So lets compare really quick…  because this makes a HUGEEEEE difference with the nutrition facts, but also the nutrients that your getting!

Starbucks Unicorn Treat:

  • 450 Calories
  • 80 Carbohydrates
  • 12 grams fat
  • 76 grams sugar

And then we have…

Unicorn Shakeology Treat: FYI… this is a full meal replacement!

  • 290 calories
  • 40 carbs
  • 10 grams fat
  • 14 grams sugar

We can also mention here that Shakeology is full of pre and pro-biotics to help support digestive health and regularity, antioxidants to help fight free radicals and support immune health, superfoods and phytonutrients to support health and vitality, and a great protein blend to help build lean muscle and reduce cravings!

I don’t think Starbucks can beat that one!!

So, when you are feeling like you want to dive into something not-so-healthy, think of how you can make it healthy so you stay on track with your goals and health!

Workout Without Weights & Challenge Yourself!

I know most people think you have to lift heavy at the gym in order to get in really good shape…. ummmm FALSE!!! I have experience in the gym and I have experience working out at home and let me just say that you can burn a TON of calories, work up a sweat, and get in amazing shape by working out without weights and these workouts can be done ANYWHERE… Your living room, basement, bedroom, heck, even your hallway!

First things first… Let’s get something straight. If you are not pushing yourself, or sweating, your probably not working hard enough…. and if your taking too long of breaks, your heart rate isn’t getting up and your not challenging yourself and those results will not be as good as if you were giving it all you got!

So, let’s do these exercises I am about to share and really… give it ALL YOU GOT! If you can challenge yourself and push with little to no breaks in between, your heart rate will be up, you will be sweating, and those results will come…. of course you need to be eating healthy too! You cannot workout a bad diet my friends!!

If you need to modify, then modify! You will notice that after you get through a good bit, it will repeat, but adding in more as you continue! If you break, do not take any longer than 30 seconds! Ok, if your really tired and more of a beginner, you can take another 30 seconds if you need to, but be sure you are challenging yourself!

No weights needed, but you will work every part of your body in this workout!! Comment below how this workout went for you!!

If you are looking for support and accountability with your fitness journey, along with tips on healthy eating and exercise, please fill out the application below for a spot in my next fitness challenge group held in a private group online!

When Life Gives You Lemons….

So you know the quote, “When life gives you lemons, you turn it into lemonade.” Well, I have a new quote that I am running with today!!! “When life gives you lemons, squeeze it, mix it with 6 ounces of distilled water and drink it twice a day.” -Jethro Kloss

Deidra Penrose Mangus, clean eating tips, stay at home mom healthy tips, kid friendly health tips, weight loss journey, lemon benefits, when life gives you lemons, military fitness, nutrition tips, healthy new mom tips, top beachbody coach PA, elite beachbody coach PA, online fitness coach, summer weight loss, military wife, nurse and fitness

This is about keeping up with your health and incorporating easy foods that can be used with many health benefits!! So lets talk LEMONS today since they are yellow and it’s so sunny today! 🙂

Lemons have so many health benefits and one thing I was surprised to hear is that it actually can:

  • Give you as much energy as coffee, so replacing your coffee in the morning will help you improve your energy in a healthier way!
  • It will also prevent you from aging (which coffee causes you to age).
  • Is full of potassium, which helps your heart health.
  • Act as a diuretic and help increase the rate of urination of the body.
  • Aids in digestion and helps flush our unwanted materials.
  • Clears skin. With the vitamin C in lemons, it will help decrease wrinkles and blemishes.

NEW SHAKEOLOGY FLAVORS- Vegan Vanilla and Cafe Latte’

Deidra Penrose Mangus, vegan shakeology, weight loss journey, meal replacement shake, fitness journey, military wife and fitness, health and fitness journey, new mom fitness tips, cafe latte shakeology, vanilla vegan shakeology,  spring into summer, fitness challenge, summer fitness goals, beachbody fitness group, online fitness group, top beachbody coach PA

So the scoop is, Shakeology is a pretty amazing and healthy meal that has significantly changed my life in so many ways. My nutrition was terrible after having my second boy… I was craving all the crap that my body didn’t need and wasn’t helping me reach my goals. I would dive into a gallon of ice cream on a regular basis… and eat the WHOLE THING… no lie! I was feeling bloated because I was putting artificial sweeteners and chemicals in my body with all the crap I was eating. I didn’t have energy because I wasn’t fueling my body the right way. The list goes on and on, but I’m sure you can relate to some extent of how my lifestyle was.

I needed a change and doing it on my own wasn’t working… I started even working harder at the gym, taking whey protein from GNC, or wherever, but again, no matter what protein I was taking in post workout, I was hungry short after, and didn’t feel any better.

I was asked to join an opportunity to be in an online fitness group, which is where my journey with Beachbody started! It was a private group on Facebook doing home fitness workouts, eating clean, and adding Shakeology into my regimen, and having 1:1 support with a Beachbody coach.

Can I just tell you how these 4 things will impact your life and help you have such a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle? These 4 things are so easily looked over… people want the easy and cheap way out of things and when it comes to your health, that is one that I refuse to sacrifice! We only live once and I want this body to live a long life for myself and my family!

So lets get to it…. NUTRITION!!

It is key to your health and your fitness goals! You cannot workout a bad diet!! You can workout as much as you want, but if you eat like crap, it will show and your results will NOT change! That is where Shakeology has come into play for me! Since I struggled so bad with my nutrition, incorporating Shakeology into my daily regimen allowed my to get the dense nutrition I wasn’t getting from my every day food. It helped me let go of the ice cream, because this was my healthy alternative! I got rid of the bloating and cravings because I was finally fueling my body with the right food!

I have been adding Shakeology into my nutrition for the past 4.5 years and I have NO plans on changing this because the quality beats any protein shake, or meal I have ever had and the simplicity and convenience is vital to me as a busy mom!

Who would benefit from Vegan Shakeology?

  • Those people who are dairy and lactose free.
  • Vegan Shakeology is a proprietary blend of plant-based proteins, ideal for those who cannot tolerate or wish to avoid animal proteins, whey, or dairy. The vegan proteins from chia, flax, sacha inchi, quinoa, rice, pea, & oat deliver all 9 essential amino acids.
  • Many with certain sensitivities find that vegan protein is easier for the body to digest than animal protein. The vegan formulas are not fortified with additional vitamin and mineral isolates (as the whey-based Shakeology formulas are), making vegan Shakeology an excellent option for those looking to get their nutrients exclusively from whole foods without fortification.

If you are ready to kick off this summer right by living reaching your goals and are ready to commit to your fitness and nutrition, please fill out the form to be accepted into my next fitness challenge held online where you will get 1:1 mentoring from myself, along with tons of healthy mom/kid friendly recipes and help with meal planning!
