I hope you all had a great start to 2016! My new year started off well – with some good friends, in my nice little house, enjoying some beverages 😊 It was a good kick-off to my best year yet!
That’s right, I’m putting it out there right now: 2016 will be my best year ever!! I’ve got some personal goals that I’m going to stay consistent with and some HUGE business goals!
Working this business is no joke – even though I don’t go to an office, I’m busy almost everyday. Sometimes it’s harder than working for someone else! When I’m feeling lazy and unmotivated, there’s no boss to push me to get it done. I’m responsible for EVERYTHING. But personally, I like that!
I’ve had people ask what I actually DO all day long, so I wanted to share a day in the life of Fit Coach Ashley! If you’ve ever wondered what the life of a fitness coach is like, read on.
7:00am – Wake up and meditate for 10 minutes. Drink water. Make myself look ready for the day – thankfully this just involves brushing my hair and putting on workout clothes!
8:00am – Drink coffee and eat some breakfast (steel-cut oats with berries, greek yogurt and granola, etc.). Check in with my challenge group participants (people that post in our Facebook group about their daily fitness and nutrition). Post new stuff on my Facebook and Instagram. Make new connections with people who might be into fitness coaching.
10:00am – Workout! After sitting at my computer for 2 hours, I need to move! This is typically my workout hour.
11:00am – Personal development. I read or listen to something that will improve my life. It could be something about the power of positivity, or a specific training about how to connect with more people on social media.
12:00pm – Shakeology time! I usually drink my shake for lunch. I take a minute and relax during this hour too.
1:00pm – My afternoon varies depending on the day, but I typically do some combination of this stuff: Check in again with my challenge groups and respond to any messages. Check in with my team of coaches, have some 1:1 calls with a few of them. Design new social media content. Write blog posts and newsletters. Update random things that I’ve been neglecting.
4:00pm – Around this time I start wrapping up my work and doing personal stuff; cleaning the house, running errands, etc.
6:30pm – Dinner with my husband. We spend some time together afterwards just hanging out and talking about our days.
8:00pm – Final social media check-in. I respond to any last minute messages or questions.
9:00pm – Unplug and chill! We typically watch Netflix and are in bed not too much later!
My hours are longer than a typical 9 to 5 job, but I also get a ton of freedom during my “work” time. I mean, who gets to work out for an hour at their job?!
I don’t mind putting in the work for something that I love. Something that helps other people live more fulfilling lives. Something that’s improved my life SO MUCH and given me the freedom to live how I choose.
What do you think? Could you do this job?
