The Fit Republic is Born
In 2011 Heather invited Kelly to join Team Beachbody and Kelly became Heather’s first coach! Becoming a part of Team Beachbody was the missing link in Kelly’s fitness business. Her clients would ask for advice on nutritional shakes and workouts they could do while traveling and Kelly would refer them to YouTube videos and vitamin shops, none of which she was passionate about. Now Kelly can provide her clients with supplements, Shakeology, and top of the line in home workout videos that she has tried herself and stands behind 100%.
As Kelly’s fitness business grew she was unable to take on more personal training clients or add more group exercise classes to her plate. Rather than turning away clients she was able to invite them to her online challenge groups and coach them remotely. This opportunity opened up a new door to virtual fitness and coaching, one that Kelly didn’t realize was even possible. Being a Beachbody Coach provide Kelly with additional income so she was able to scale back her teaching schedule and spend more time working from home.
As team grew, Kelly collaborate with Heather and Genevieve to create The Fit Republic. Our goals was to give other people the opportunity to work from home, spend more time with their family,and do something that truly mattered - helping people live healthier and happier lives through health and fitness.
