Join the #1 Team In Team Beachbody, The Dream Team


The Dream Team

So lets chat for a moment!!!!  

Has the thought ever crossed your mind about becoming a Beachbody coach??? Does it sorta kinda make you excited, give you butterflies but in the same breathe cause you a little panic and fear because you just don't know what to expect?  Are you a motivated person but you are afraid to take that leap of faith? What if I fail? What if I stink at this?  How do I find customers?  How do I make a sale?  I don't want to sell to my friends and family?  I don't know anything about social media?  I'm not a fitness professional?  HECK  I AM NOT EVEN AT MY GOAL WEIGHT!!!  AND..... WHAT THE HECK DOES BEING A COACH MEAN ANYWAYS....UUUAHHHHHHH!!!

Does this sound like the thoughts that keep running through your mind?  Its like you are on a seesaw and you swing from excited to nervous back to excited over and over again but you can't seem to take that leap of faith!  

WELLL.... I totally know how you feel!  99.9% of new coaches including myself felt this way!  It's not that you are afraid of failure it's that you are afraid of change.  It's the unpredictability that gets you ever time!  So, I truly want to calm some of your fears, answer your questions and help you to make an educated decision about becoming a coach!  

So here is what I have going on to help you with this decision making process!

#1 I am going to host a live youtube event this Thursday January 22nd, 2015 at 9:00 pm EST.
click here to join the call


During this call I will give you some background as to how I become a successful coach. What did I do in my first month and first 6 months to create successful habits, and how can you do it too!  I'm absolutely no different than you, I don't have any special powers, but what I do have is consistency over time and the drive and passion for helping others succeed.  You can learn any skill you need to in order to be successful.  If you are teachable and motivated then you will succeed!  


I am going to walk you through the process of what a coach does, how to sign up, what are your investment options, how do you make money, how do you share vs sell and more!  You have the option to ask questions as well at the end!  If you would like to submit questions for me to answer ahead of time you can email me at mmitro@hotmail.com and I will prepare the answers for you!!!!

Here is the link to join the call:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fT7Bs4S3Yk



Join the Dream Team for Exclusive Top Coach Training

Secondly, if you decide that coaching is right for you the next step is to sign up and reserve your spot in my February 2nd, new coach apprenticeship program!

This is going to be a one of a kind SMALL group where I am going to personally mentor you 1:1 and in a group setting over 30 days.  
I am going to teach you exactly what I did to start my business, to reach success in my first few months, to successfully invite, and start a challenge group without you having to re invent the wheel.

Your goal is to invite 3-5 people to join our challenge group that WE will run TOGETHER so you don't have to do it alone!  They will be your customers in the group, you will get the commission, you will follow up and check in with your customers but I will run the post of the day so you can learn from me and in the coming months do your own groups.  

You will have access to my guides, my scripts, my resources, templates, and call recordings.  I absolutely love training my coaches and I feel very passionate about making sure you have a successful start!  While I cannot MAKE you successful, just as in your fitness journey, you can have a stellar meal plan and workout but if you don't follow the plan you won't get the results!  You have to do the work!  Same thing with our business!  It's fun, but it takes purposeful action each day to bring about results.  Instead of stabbing in the dark, I will guide you on that purposeful direction!!!!  I in no way want to toot my own horn but in 3.5 years I have gone from a mom of 2 boys who had some serious baby weight to lose, to the healthiest I have ever been, no more paycheck to paycheck lifestyle, 3X elite Coach, 2X top 10 Coach, 2014 Top Coach, 15 Star Diamond and CAB {Coach Advisory Board} member!  I have done all of this while making my focus on growing my team, their needs and making sacrifices so that they have success and they REACH THEIR GOALS!  In the meantime I have been able to accomplish some pretty cool stuff, but that means nothing to me if I'm standing on that stage alone!  I want to be with my team and I want them to have success too!  The awards and accomplishments come from our team and their hard work and my ability to see a need for training, resources and guidance and provide that!  I'm truly invested in my team and my business for the long haul!  

Does this sound like something you would like to do?  Then Complete the application below to be considered for a spot on my team and to gather more information!



Will you become the NEWEST DREAM TEAM MEMBER?!?!  There will never be a perfect condition or a right time!  Take that leap of faith and build your wings on the way down!  Let's do it together!  DREAM TEAM STYLE!!!!

Insanity Max 30 Meal Plan And Weekly Prep

Insanity Max 30 Meal Plan, Melanie MItro, Top Coach, Accountability, Support, Food, Clean Eating, Nutrition, 21 Day Fix, Sweat
Thank You Max30 for the muscles!!!!!


It's Sunday and this is always my day to plan and prep for the week.  It's a rest day but not a rest from my nutrition or my planning.  It's a day to let my body just have some down time but also to mentally get ready for the week ahead.  On Sunday's I take some time to organize my entire life.  I sit down with my calendar and put on there the important things going on during the week for my family, my business and the kids activities.  I always block out time for my workouts and on Sunday's I make my meal plan and grocery list.  That way I have the meal plan printed and taped to the fridge and I have the food in the fridge so it takes the guess work out of exactly what I am going to eat every night.  Just look at the plan and go!

So this morning I sat here and masterminded my plan for the week.  What is my biggest obstacle?  Getting back on track after a weekend of partying with my 4 year old!  YUP!  A little cake and ice cream, fajitas, margaritas and definitely a few more carbs than I needed!  That's ok, I am not too worried because today I will throw away all the cake that is left (I don't feel guilty at all) and I am drinking my Shakeology for breakfast, my typical eating is back on track and I'm ready to go!  I have my plan to do week 4 of Insanity Max 30 starting tomorrow so workouts are taken care of and lots of water is planned to be drank.  So the moral of the story is this!  Don't make every weekend a cheat weekend because then you find yourself eating back everything you worked hard to burn each week but allowing yourself every once in a while to enjoy is totally ok!  It is what keeps you sane and not feeling restricted.

Insanity Max30 Meal Plan for Women on the lowest Calorie bracket

Lets talk meal planning for the week!  I just said to my husband last night that I'm bored with the same foods and its time to try something new.  So I have 2 new recipes on the plan for dinner this week.  Tuscan Chicken is from the Beachbody blog and it sounded easy to make so I'm working on that one and I will report back with whether or not it is a keeper!!!  The second recipe is Lemon Herb Chicken Breast and that I found from the blog heandsheeatsclean.com  

As far as snacks go I never really have much variety because I am trying to keep my yellows to 2 per day and if you add in a protein bar then that takes away a yellow that I covet for sweet potatoes or almond milk in my shakeology.  I am a creature of habit so I tend to just eat the same things over and over and it works for me!  Shakeology is always my breakfast and I vary between mint water, almond extract, caramel extract a splash of almond milk and other fixings.  But I spice my shake up with extracts vs putting in the fruit since I only get 2 fruits per day and 2 spoons and I don't want to waste them in my shake bc I want to eat them later in the day.  I used to be a fancy shake maker but I realized I was adding to many extra calories for my body type and derailing my progress!  A whole banana in my shake was basically my entire days worth of sugars.  I have gotten good at knowing what foods fill me up vs the ones that leave me hungry!  If I eat eggs and veggies I'm hungry in an hour, but if I add  a slice of ezekiel bread it adds an extra hour.  I have to eat dinner vs drinking a shake.  That's just me and a personal preference but it just doesn't fill me up at dinner time.  But breakfast it works perfect and I'm satisfied!  I also find that I have to stay away from dairy.  Greek yogurt and cheese end up bloating me and for some reason I gain weight when I eat them.  As much as I love my greek yogurt as a snack I'm better off without it.  I also used to be a HUGE oatmeal girl!  Every morning I would have a bowl of oatmeal.  But I noticed the distended stomach with it too!  So I stay away from it!  But for you that might work, so I encourage you to find your center and stick with it!

I believe that your meal plan is a personal preference and I can tell you what works for me but it might be totally different for you.  But it is trial and error until you figure out what works best for you.

Sometimes you don't want to do it but you have to dig deeper and find your inner strength and go

Workouts:  Lets talk Max 30!!  Matt and I are going to be starting week 4 of our second round of max 30.  I can't believe how much stronger we are since we started on day 1.  We have really seen a dramatic increase in our max out times, our push up strength and our endurance.  There are some days we just still stink but we really have been feeling great! The results are easy to maintain once you get them and the nutrition plan is sooo easy to follow! We both love the fast pace of Max 30 and its 30 minutes in and out and done!!!  So bring on week 4 and as always don't go through the motions but get into your own head and challenge yourself every single day to dig deeper and push harder and you will achieve the results too!

So here are some funny pics of the week of Matt and I! Each morning we snap a selfie before we workout and post it on our IG and Facebook accounts!  It keeps us accountable and we are finding that we are really inspiring others to do the same!!!

I couldn't Resist Flex Friday with Matt and then this border I found!!! We Change the World one silly selfie at a time and one flex Friday a week!! We hope to inspire 1 person to change their lives with our weirdness!

Rise and shine it's SHAUN T time!! About to bust out some sweat intervals AKA death by cardio!!! Somebody isn't too happy he has to be awake today!!! Or maybe I am procrastinating a little at getting started and he is just being impatient!!! 
Either way it's pressing play in 3,2,1... Go!!! See u in thirty!!

Are you one toe in and one toe out of your results? Are u working on a lifestyle change when it's convenient for you? Would you say your a fair weather fan??
A transformation of any kind happens when you stop skirting around the idea and you go 100% in and you don't look back!! Al excuses and fears aside you are committed and results happen because your mindset is unwavering!!!! 
Be committed and stop this hokie pokie!!! #max30#tabatastrenght #mitromotivation

No matter how much you don't want to do it or how long it took you to get out of bed always remember "never miss a monday"
Start your week off right and focus on reaching your goals and every decisions does make a difference!!! Doing what you know you have to do even when u don't feel like it makes all the difference in the world!!!
Long weekend- tired- but still here!!! Max30 lets do this!!!!! #monday#max30

So I expect to see you tomorrow hitting up your workout and thinking about this... "NEVER MISS A MONDAY"  Always start your week off strong, get in the mindset no matter how busy your weekend was and remember that Matt and I are here right along side of you pushing play and taking names!!!  BOOM!  Have a great week!!!!

My Review Of The 21 Day Fix Extreme

21 Day Fix Extreme Sneak Peak

Good Morning!!!  Happy Saturday!  It's time to test out Autumn Calabrese's 21 Day Fix Extreme Workout!

I just got done doing my Elite Sneak Peak Workout of the 21 Day Fix Extreme. The workout is the Dirty 30 Extreme and here is what I think about it!


21 Day Fix Extreme Sneak Peak, Melanie MItro, Elite coach, Autumn Calabrese, Dirty 30 Extreme, Workout with Weights
21 Day Fix Extreme Single Leg Dead lift w/upward row
I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to lift my arms tomorrow!  LOL
So it's totally different than Insanity Max30.  You are incorporating strength training into your workouts now!
This workout was 30 minutes long {every fix extreme workout is 30 min} and it was a series of moves that were repeated twice for 1 minute intervals.  You alternate between light and heavy weights depending on your strength.  I really like that you are using multiple muscle groups at the same time during the workouts.

So for example you are doing a dead lift with a row or a lunch with a row.  Autumn always likes to throw in those bonus moves and it was a plank with a weighted knee tuck HARD AS CAN BE but yes its going to tone that core!  

There is a modifier in the video Charise but the modifier is still for someone with a base level of fitness.  For example the modifier still does push ups on her toes.

Did I like the workout?  YES and I feel that the new workouts with weights and the extremely dialed in nutrition plan are going to change it up for my body and keep my results in tip top shape!  I have an all inclusive trip to Cancun Mexico with Team Beachbody in April to get in shape for so I'm game for at least 2 rounds of the fix extreme!  February 2nd can't get here fast enough!  Can't wait to do this workout right along side my test group participants and coaches!!!!

POST WORKOUT NUTRITION:  Shakeology and a cup of coffee!  The rest of the day is 4-5 small meals with my fix portion containers!!!!  

February 2nd!!!  LETS DO THIS!!!!

A year ago almost to the day Team Beachbody  launched the now #1 home fitness program the 21 Day Fix Created by Autumn Calabrese! The 30 minute total body workouts paired with the easy to follow nutrition guide and portion controlled containers created amazing buzz and nothing short of breath taking results!  Seriously for ME personally it was the missing piece of my nutrition and fitness results.  I was eating clean, working out regularly but I was stuck at a plateau.  The portion controlled containers paired with a food list categorized by the most nutrient dense and highly recommended foods at the top and the lowest nutritional value foods at the bottom!  I began to see results, my body changed and I am walking proof along with my hundreds of fix graduates that it works!!!!

So after a few rounds of the 21 Day Fix and after crushing your initial fitness goals Autumn realized that she needed something that can take your fitness to the NEXT level!  So now we are excited to announce the launch of the brand new 21 Day Fix EXTREME!!!  Coming February 2nd to anyone who has a Team Beachbody Coach (if you don't have one, make me your coach please).

The goal with the 21 Day Fix Extreme is to create killer results, more muscle tone, definition, tightened up nutrition plan and advanced moves.  This worked is truly meant to get you shredded.  Autumn actually shares her competition meal plan with you to help you shred those pesky pounds that many of us hold on to.



Who should buy the program?


21 Day Fix EXTREME is ideal for those with a dramatic short-term weight
loss deadline--such as an upcoming vacation, photo shoot, or other big event.
It's an excellent next step for 
21 Day Fix graduates ready for a new challenge
or graduates of other 
extreme programs like P90X, Insanity, and FOCUS T25.
Fix EXTREME is also great for those who don't have much weight to lose,
but want to get shredded and see abs; those with a "no BS" attitude toward
workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn't want to count calories, weigh
 their food, or follow complicated recipes.


I would not recommend the 21 Day Fix Extreme for a beginner.
This is an advanced program.  Autumn did talk about that when she was in
 Pittsburgh for our event last weekend.  So I want to make sure that you know
 to do the 21 day fix FIRST before moving to this program!


So what are the details?

  • The program is 21 days long!
  • You do 1 30 minute workout each day.
  • You do not need a lot of space to do this workout.  A 6 square foot area is all that you need.
  • What type of shoes do you need?  Cross Trainers or aerobic shoes are necessary.

The workouts include:  

Plyo Fix Extreme, Upper Fix Extreme, Lower Fix Extreme,
Pilates Fix Extreme, Cardio Fix Extreme, Dirty 30 Fix Extreme  and
Yoga Fix Extreme.

There will be a bonus workout that you get for ordering through a coach plus
there is also additional workouts that you can purchase also.
Power strength extreme and ABC Extreme.

Lets talk nutrition plan!

While the 21 day fix allowed for wine and chocolate the 21 Day fix extreme does
not.  It is 100% clean eating for these 21 days.  You do have the option to eat out at restaurants but you still have to follow the nutritional guidelines laid out.  Just think about it this way!  You can do anything you put your mind to for 21 days.
I can say from previous experience with Insanity Max 30 that when I followed
the nutrition plan to the T I really got amazing results.  I have never had abs
before and they were popping out!  I really do attribute a lot of my progress to
nutrition.  So make sure to take this part extremely serious.

You will get the 21 day fix portion controlled containers with your program
purchase!

So do you want to be the first to get it??? 


21 Day Fix Extreme Results

Plus I am going to be hosting an EXCLUSIVE 21 Day Fix Extreme TEST Group where I will be mentoring you through the program, teaching you how to navigate the nutrition plan, create a meal plan, prep, give you snack ideas, recipes, and tips.  Plus you will get daily videos, motivation and accountability right from me in a closed online group!!!  Our goal is to set realistic and achievable goals and to go 100% in for 21 days to achieve the very best results we can achieve!!!

change!  Ummm.... total transformation by June! It could really happen!

What Is An Elite Coach For Team Beachbody?



Elite Coach Roses and 21 Day Fix Extreme Sneak Peak




What is an Elite coach? This past week there have been quite a few announcements on my personal Facebook page, my blog and Instagram about the coaches on my team that have become Elite this year and those that have become top 10!!!  I am getting questions on what it exactly means to be Elite.  I mean I know its something good but what is it?!?!

So my blog post today is to hopefully give you a little insight into what it means!

An Elite Coach is not defined by your personal sales.  An Elite coach is not someone who sells a lot of product.  Elite is determined by how well you can lead, motivate and guide your coaches to reach their goals.  So Elite is a team goal!  

Being an Elite Coach means that you have successfully helped at least 5 coaches advance to Diamond rank.  It means that you have personally helped your coaches achieve Success Club each month, it means that your coaches are earning an income by starting a challenge group each month, and that you are creating a system of duplication within your organization.  


Elite is a status that is achieved by less than 1% of the organization.  So out of 220,000 Team Beachbody coaches there are less than 200 Elite coaches.  It is a prestigious honor to be Elite!  



What do you get for being an Elite Coach?




The perks of being an Elite Coach are this:  You have access to our 5 Star Diamond line at Team Beachbody Customer Service, you have access to the 5 Star wall with the Corporate team and other leaders to discuss leadership and other questions or concerns. 

You earn a $500 success bonus paid out each month to you in addition to your weekly paycheck.  You get an extra night stay at summit, leadership and the success club trip with an exclusive event for only Elite coaches.  You also receive awesome rewards and recognition for achieving this rank!  We also got a sneak peak of the programs that are being released before the rest of the network has access to them!  For example the 21 Day Fix Extreme that will be launched on the 2nd of February is sitting in my DVD player for my Saturday sweat session now!  {review to follow}.

Buying fun gifts for Elite
Elite is definitely a milestone you want to shoot for in your business if you are wanting to make this your full time income or career.  Elite really is where the magic begins to happen and where your business starts to take flight!  I truly love that Beachbody is based off of the principle that its not about just signing up coaches to sign them up but it's more about making sure that your coaches get started right, they have success and that you are helping them to achieve their financial and their fitness goals too!  Its the RIGHT way to run a business! The more success you have as a coach on my team the better we all do!  Its not that you sign up and I reap all the benefits! We are in this together as a team!

So can you do this??? 
Yes you can!  Almost every single Elite Coach that I have went from new coach to Elite within their first and second year!  They all started the year as Diamond and crushed their goals!  

It's all about setting the goal and then backwards chaining it into monthly and weekly goals, small baby steps, consistency, passion and enthusiasm for helping others that gets you there!!!!  There is no secret sauce!  If you want it, you can do it!!!!! ARE YOU IN!?!?!

If you are looking at becoming a coach and want to really join a team that is going to mentor and support you to reaching your goals!  Message me for the details of my upcoming coach apprenticeship program for new coaches!!!

It's More Than Just a Box Of DVDs and a Bag of Powder

It's Transformation TUESDAY and I have to share some of the local coaches stories that were shared this past weekend at our event!!!!

So I see success stories all the time from people who lose weight with X program and Y drink and Z meal plan!  Of course you stop, look at the picture and say wow that's quite an accomplishment! But that's it, you typically move on and wish you could achieve those results and usually you come up with an excuse as to why you can't and thats the end of the story!  But it's a whole different story when you hear people's stories from their mouths, you see them in the flesh and blood and you see their tears of joy for the mental and physical battle that they have overcame in order to achieve those results.  It truly is the best feeling in the world to know that you in some way some how had a hand in that physical transformation!!!!  For me, that is exactly how I feel about my job as a coach.  I truly believe that since I started as a challenger, I went through my own weight loss journey with Insanity, Clean Eating and Shakeology that I have this deep sense of appreciation and respect for what coaches do!  I know that there are days when you don't want to push play, you don't want to make a healthy choice and you don't want to drink your Shakeology but you know that you are accountable to the people in your challenge group and to your coach so you do it anyways!  Let's face it, no one wants to report in each day that you cheated, messed up, didn't follow the plan or that you quit! It's that whole other level of accountability!


When I am talking to a potential challenger and they give me the whole line, "wow that's really expensive" I  chuckle inside!  First because I know that I thought the same thing at first.  I remember feeling like the investment was not worth it!  That a bag of powder and a bunch of DVDs were not going to transform by body!  But I was desperate for results and I couldn't stand the way I looked any longer and I was willing to give it a shot!

I committed to Insanity, to checking into the challenge group every day and to starting to change my eating habits.  I didn't see immediate results, but what I did feel was support, accountability, daily encouragement, I learned how to manage my emotional eating, how to practice the 80-20 rule and I was surrounded by others who were at my finger tips 24/7 to lift me up, encourage me, keep me going when I didn't want to go any more and to be by biggest fans!  I had no idea who these people were but they became my friends!!!  
Insanity & P90X transformation, Melanie Mitro, Top Coach, Pittsburgh PA, Transformation Tuesday
My Transformation with Insanity & P90X

So, A challenge pack is so much more than Shakeology in a bag, a T25, or 21 Day Fix Workout program, free shipping and a discounted price!  Its about having someone on the other end to make sure that you open that program, that you press play on day 1, day 7 day 14 and at the end!  It's having someone to lift you up when you get in a rut or have a bad day and someone to carry you when you feel your strength is gone!  That to me honestly is PRICELESS!!!!  

If it wasn't for my coach, I would not have finished Insanity, I would not have lost 30 lbs, and I would not have completely changed my families eating habits and influenced those that I love to make a healthy change too!  So when you are weighing on the options think about this! 


When you go to the gym, who is making sure you show up every day?  
Who is checking your nutrition to make sure you are eating properly for the workouts you are doing?
