I will be hosting a Team Relentless Live YouTube broadcast that will be open to the public: Getting your spouse’s support with guest speakers Tom Barto & my husband Ryan Hord on Sunday, August 3 at 8:30 p.m. CST.
I have seen AND heard over and over and over from fellow Team Beachbody Coaches just how difficult it is to get their spouses to support them on their fitness & weight loss journey, let alone drink Shakeology or join them on their journey, or even see the coaching opportunity as legit. I have seen over and over again the most successful top coaches speak on the National Wake Up call, team calls, live corporate events like Super Saturday, Leadership and Summit attribute their success not only to their own personal hard work and vision as well as their team but because they have had their spouses support and without it they could not have accomplished what they have! I know personally, I would not have been successful without the love, support, patience and understanding I’ve received from my husband since I became a coach on February 15, 2012. He has supported me in every crazy idea I’ve had, encouraged me when I was scared, worried, and doubting myself, attended every event and helped with the household duties and kids when I was on late night calls and working my butt off so that I could help us have an even better life. He knows without a doubt, even when I don’t think so, that I can and will succeed and can do anything I set my mind to and knows how great this opportunity has been for our family and our marriage.
My team has grown tremendously over the past 2 1/2 years and my success as a coach is not just a result of my consistent, relentless hard work, but because I have had the support and help from my husband and Ryan. I have noticed that some of the most successful coaches of Team Relentless and within the organization are those that have support from their spouses.
Please join the call on Sunday to hear some tips I will share that has helped me gain the support from my husband over the past 2 1/2 years of being a coach, that others on my team have applied. On the call will be my childhood best friend and personally sponsored diamond coach, Melissa Barto’s husband Tom Barto and my husband Ryan will share a few of his tips to help get your spouse’s support!
Some of my personally sponsored coaches have shared a little about their success story that involves their spouse. Please tune in to the call on Sunday evening while I share a little more about some of these couples and observations about how they have worked together throughout their coaching career.

“In the beginning Tom wasn’t super supportive & of course thought it was a “Pyramid Scheme”, but I was being hit hard with Postpartum depression & just told me to do whatever made me happy, at any cost. Little did he know how much it would impact our lives & marriage. Once the business aspect came into play things really changed. It has allowed me to not have to go back to work outside the home & begin to profit & help reduce our large debt.
“ Let’s start from the beginning! Prior to meeting my Rick, I had gone through a horrible marriage and divorce. One that contained abuse, alcoholism, and control. My son was conceived in this marriage, and is, honestly, the only good outcome of the marriage. I never had any support from my ex, and always felt like I wasn’t good enough to do better, be better, and feel better. The only real support that I ever had came from my parents, coworkers, my daughters’ father, his family, and my girls. When I met Rick, everything changed, and we just instantly clicked! We were both open and honest with each other about every aspect of our lives; past and present. He was very supportive of my career in management with a natural gas compressor manufacturing plant. I, later, decided to go back to school to get more specialized training in Management. He supported me there, as well. I was laid off from that job, in August 2013, but that only chipped the surface of our perfection. It got close to breaking us, but we fought hard to keep it together, and refused to let the ship sink. We are both fighters, and refuse to give up on anything. We got officially married on September 20, 2013.
In May, of this year, I decided I wanted to quit smoking. I was tired of feeling like shit and tired of spending all that money! He jumped on the bandwagon with me, and quit dipping, as well. Then, after watching Mindy for a few weeks in the PiYO test group, I talked to Kristina Lewis, and decided to become a Beachbody Coach. We were seriously living paycheck to paycheck, and things sometimes get pretty tight, so $140, for a challenge pack seemed a little steep, but I talked to him about it anyway (determination). I came with hard facts and a purpose. After about 30 minutes of listening and hearing the passion in my voice, he was all in, and very supportive of my decision. He now participates in all of the Fit Club meetings with me, as well as all of the PiYO workouts! He is loving it! He talks to everyone about our journey and shares his experiences. He isn’t afraid of yoga and Pilates! And he is a VERY manly man! His next big journey is to be come a Coach and start Body Beast. Guess who’s going to be joining him in his Beast transformation?? That’s right!! ME!! Nothing compares to having your spouse support you in every aspect of this journey. It feels great to have someone who will challenge you to push harder and dig deeper, every day! Someone who isn’t going to let you fall completely off of the bandwagon. Someone who lets you be human, but also holds you accountable. And someone who isn’t afraid to shine with you. I look forward to having him on my team, and building an amazing business with my life partner. We are Team Beachbody, all the way! And I couldn’t have asked for a better companion, team mate, and partner.”
