Pay It Forward

Follow Me on PinterestPin It

What does it mean to “pay it forward”.  According to Wikipedia the expression “pay it forward” is used to describe the concept of asking that a good deed be repaid by having it done to others instead.  When I lost over 70 lbs after years of struggling doing the wrong things and looking for the wrong advice, I decided to become a Beachbody coach.  (CLICK HERE to find out more about Beachbody coaching and how I can help you achieve your health and fitness goals).  I wanted to become a personal trainer, but money, time and going back to school for a degree made that seem impossible.  When I discovered Beachbody coaching after getting a coach myself, I realized I could help more people, for less money and do it all from the comfort of my own computer.

I think the concept of paying it forward is important for the following reasons:

1) It takes the focus off ourselves.  Let’s admit it, most of the time our thought process goes something like this “How can I benefit from this?” or “What’s in it for me?”, the real question should sound like this, “How can I help someone ?” or “How can let someone know that I’m here to help them?”.  This is why I love being a Beachbody coach, I can help others who are facing some of the same struggles that I went through only a few years ago.

2) It’s focus is about giving not receiving.  I think receiving something as a reward or prize is fine.  Receiving is what we do when someone gives us a gift.  Receiving is certainly what drives some people to help others, giving — the ability to give — is not worrying about who gets the credit or who gets the glory, only that the person your giving to finds what they are looking for.

3) It make you both feel good.  Helping someone who has struggled with their weight for most of their life, to finally reach their health and fitness goals can generate an unmatched feeling of pure joy.  I know how tough it can be and to be able to help someone else get through it feels amazing.  

Here is a free sample workout that Tony Horton and Beachbody put together.  They want to PAY IT FORWARD.  Beachbody isn’t just about getting super fit,they are about helping get access to improved health and fitness at any point in their lives.  Let’s spread the word! PAY IT FORWARD.

Here is a video of Tony Horton and Brian mixing up some Shakeology after Brian’s workout.
