About Me

My name is Aleena and I am a 28 year old wife and mama to three beautiful Ethiopian children, ages 4, 7, and 11! Adoption has been my lifelong dream but I never imagined just how full my heart could be until we officially welcomed our two sweet daughters and our handsome little son into our family.  I love Jesus and my faith is the center of my life.  I am passionate about traveling to new parts of the world, experiencing new cultures, and meeting different kinds of people.  I grew up in the mountains of Washington State and currently live in Minnesota.  I have a love for the outdoors, hiking, camping, and being around water.  I'm also an avid coffee drinker!  I went to college and got my bachelors in Spanish (let's be honest...I went to college because I felt like that's what I was "suppose to do", but I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life.  I chose Spanish simply because it would allow me to do a couple of study abroads!  Yay for travel!!).  Never in a million years did I think I would become a health and fitness coach!

The meal plan and portion control containers that came with 21 Day Fix were really what drew me in to the program.  At the time when I contacted my coach to get signed up, we were on a super strict budget saving money for the adoption and our gym membership didn't make the budget cut.  I decided to join as a coach so that I could help pay for my own program and Shakeology by helping a few other people get started on this program with me.  It was a win-win situation in my eyes...make a little money AND get in better shape.  I realized that I had nothing to lose, so I took a chance on myself and I joined the team.   

Let me take you back a little bit to my life leading up to that day.  For as long as I can remember, I struggled with my body image.  Comparison was truly the thief of my joy! I tried everything to get the body I wanted and to find confidence in myself.  You name it, I probably tried it...weight watchers, pills, anorexia, bulimia, and the list goes on.  I wanted to be healthy and happy, and I was willing to work hard for it, but my nutrition was seriously out of control!  I was a total sugar-addict.  I didn't like to workout, but I was willing to do it. I use to think that as long as I put in my time at the gym, I could eat whatever I wanted.  What I've learned now that I didn't know then was that you can never outwork a bad diet.  What you eat is 80% of the battle, and that's where I desperately needed help!  

After a full year of silently watching my coach online helping so many people transform their bodies and their finances, on November 13, 2014, I took a leap of faith, purchased the 21 Day Fix, and I signed up to join Team Beachbody as a coach! That one decision was where I began my fitness journey and the opportunity that has forever changed my life.  

On December 1, 2014, I started 21 Day Fix with a few friends and family who also wanted to get in shape.  I created a Facebeook page where we all communicated daily and helped keep each other on track, and the results that we got were incredible!  After just 3 weeks, I was feeling amazing! I was waking up just 30 minutes early and getting my workout in before heading off to work so that it was over and done with and I wouldn't have to think about it when I got home. I had more energy, my cute clothes were fitting me again, and I wasn't feeling restricted on my meal plan!  After just two months of doing 21 Day Fix, I had lost 8 pounds (which is a lot on a 5'2" body), and I had more confidence in myself than EVER before!  I cried when I compared my before and after photos because not only had I built a body that I loved, but I did it in a HEALTHY way for the first time in my life.  I was hooked!  

I was what I consider to be a "super-skeptic" when it came to Shakeology, but I wanted to give it a try since I had seen so many people having such great success with it.  Not only did I find Shakeology to be absolutely delicious, but it has truly been a lifesaver when it comes to my cravings!  I have a relentless sweet tooth and Shakeology truly hits the spot and satisfies that craving, which keeps me from grabbing for the candy or ice cream every day!  Also, being the crazy busy, always on-the-go person that I am, I don't know how I would stay on track without my daily shake!  It's fast, it's brainless, and it keeps me from skipping meals and/or grabbing junk food when I don't have time to prepare something healthy. 

I have since done several different fitness programs and I continue with clean eating.  I look in the mirror today and I love the person looking back at me.  Food no longer has power over me.  I am proud to say that I have finally found a way to make living a healthy lifestyle fun and attainable.  I have discovered my passion and my purpose through this opportunity as well in helping to empower other women to find their confidence and build a body that they love!   

Join The BarBelles

The coaching opportunity is a fun and unique way to build a body, business, and life that you love!

Let me tell you more.

We are a team of passionate women who work together towards success, lifting each other up and embracing what it means to be a #GirlBoss!  We are friends; we are FAMILY!   I am not a fitness expert, nutritionist, or professional trainer (most coaches are not!).  However, these programs, products, and business opportunity have completely CHANGED MY LIFE (physically, financially, and emotionally), and now it is my HONOR to get to help people just like YOU to change your life as well!


Why join OUR team?

You won't find a better team culture elsewhere, I can tell you that!  Our team is dynamic, FUN, and as I mentioned before, we are like family.  Although we each run our own businesses, we are always sharing our top success secrets with one another and doing everything we can to support the coaches on our team.  I like to say that we are in business for ourselves, but never by ourselves!  We always have HELPING PEOPLE as our top priority, whether that means customers or fellow coaches.  The success within our team is truly phenomenal, and one of the BEST things about this is that together we have created a system that can easily be duplicated to help YOU get similar results.

As a coach, you decide how big you want to grow your business.  Do you want to replace your full-time income so that you can stay at-home with your kids?  Do you want to travel more frequently by having the time and money to do so?  Do you want to get in the best shape of your life? How about a 6 or 7-figure income...would that be life-changing?  Coaches are doing these things and making these dreams a reality every single day.  And do you want to know the coolest part about it?  They all started out exactly like YOU...having someone introducing them to this opportunity and making the decision that they were ready to take control of their life and begin to DESIGN a life with purpose and passion.  You get to be your own boss, a GIRL BOSS,  and when you join our team we are going to share our tools and resources with you to help you be successful and live out your dreams!

*Side note* Being a Beachbody Coach is NOT a "get rich quick" scheme. It is hard work and you are rewarded based upon the effort you put in. Therefore, if you aren’t willing to put in the time and effort necessary to grow a strong business, you are not going to be successful. If you ARE willing to jump in and dedicate yourself to making this work for you, you will be AMAZED at what you will accomplish.  Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income.

I get to help other people in need from the comfort of my own home...and GET PAID for it!  I am so super passionate about getting to help people reach their personal health and fitness goals. Let me tell you, it is the greatest privilege and JOY to receive daily messages about how you have changed someones life and to see them overcome obstacles that they never thought they could.  THAT is what I call PURPOSE!

Embark on your fitness journey!

As I mentioned before, you do NOT need to be a professional in the field of nutrition or fitness to become a coach.  In fact, you don't need to have any formal training whatsoever.  What IS required of you, however, is that you are willing to commit to becoming the best version of YOU that you can be, so that in-turn, you can inspire others to do the same.  As a coach, you should be working daily to better your health and fitness by being a product of our products and you should also be diving into personal development on a daily basis.  Our inner transformations are equally, if not more, important as our physical ones!


I am an example of being a product of the product!  I started off my journey with 21 Day Fix and Shakeology and saw a transformation in myself that I didn't think was even possible!

I have also completed the 21 Day Fix Extreme program, The Master's Hammer & Chisel, and have done many workouts from T25, PiYO, Cize, and more.   I currently drink Shakeology every day and do my best to follow a clean eating lifestyle. I am certainly not perfect, far from it to be honest with you, but I am on a daily quest to be better than I was yesterday!  I do not SELL anything; I share my passion with others for developing a healthy lifestyle based on whole, natural food nutrition and regular exercise!  I also share my love for Beachbody fitness programs  because, as I know first-hand, they WORK and they get people the results they are looking for!


What does it cost to be a coach?

  • All you have to do is purchase a challenge pack (any fitness program of your choice+Shakeology+30 day trial Club membership), and becoming a coach is FREE. This minimal investment includes your first month’s Business Services Fees (outlined below) and your Coach Business Kit which includes all essentials to getting started with your business!!

  • A monthly business service fee of $15.95. This covers pretty much everything business-related for you including:  your 3 Beachbody websites, processing of all orders, shipments, and returns, online coach training, Coach Online Office where you can view all business activity, etc.

What are the BENEFITS of coaching?

  •  25% commission on anything someone purchases from Beachbody through you (on your website!)

  • You receive a 25% discount on all Beachbody programs and products (even with your $15 monthly fee, you still save almost $300/year on Shakeology alone!)

  • You get paid on a weekly basis (we love Thursdays!)

  • Ultimate form of accountability for reaching your personal goals and you have access to the experts in the field of nutrition and fitness to guide you.

  • Belong to a family of like-minded people who will inspire and support you (I have made some of my very BEST friends through coaching!)

Do you have to stock product?

No!  Unlike many opportunities with a similar business structure, there are NOT inventory requirements with Beachbody; you never have to buy and stock products.  All customer orders will be placed on your websites and products will be shipped directly to them from the company.

What will it take to be successful?

First of all, as I mentioned before, our team is focused on always having our top priority be about HELPING PEOPLE.  As a successful coach you will be reaching out to people and inviting them to join you in getting healthy; offering your support, personal experiences, and guidance for them along the way.  The most common way that coaches, including myself, connect with customers is by enrolling them into challenge groups.  This is a platform (typically within a private Facebook group) where you can support, motivate and encourage everyone as they work through a fitness program.  I like to provide them with recipe ideas and daily nutrition tips to help them stick to their meal plans.  The peer-to-peer support within these groups is also a crucial part in helping our challengers succeed, so connecting them to this network is going to help you grow your business.  I have a tried-and-true system for you to follow in order to be successful, part of which includes the process of inviting people to a challenge group, getting them signed up, supporting them in getting results, and then enrolling some of these people as coaches as well!  Your  success will be strongly influenced by your ability to lead by example and inspire others to feel motivated by being passionate about what you do as a coach and sharing this with those around you. All successful coaches are a product of the product which naturally makes others want to follow their lead.  As a coach looking to grow a strong business, you will want to be actively working out and are drinking Shakeology. People trust people who speak from personal experience. Once you are signed up as a coach, you will learn everything you need to know to make this happen; you just need to be ready and willing to jump in, be teachable, and really be motivated to start helping people.

What kind of support will I receive?

The first thing I do when you sign up as a new coach is get you added to our private Facebook team page. This is where you can connect daily with the team and receive updates, information, resources and tools to help you grow your business.  You also will be given the option to be a part of my coach apprenticeship program.  This is a group that teaches you everything you need to know about running a challenge group, how to find people to invite, what to say in your invitations, how to enroll new coaches and challengers, how our compensation plan works, etc.  I will literally be giving you all of the tools that have helped me to be successful so that you do not have to re-invent the wheel. You will NOT have to figure it out how to get a business up and running on your own.  You do not have to run your first challenge group alone either. Although I will not do the work for you, I am here to pave the way for your success by providing you with all of the business building tools you need! I am passionate about helping my team DREAM BIG and duplicate my success.  The support I provide for you includes, but is not limited to: weekly mentoring calls, access to our private Facebook page, and both local and national events.  I have been shown the way to success in this business, and I want nothing more than to pay it forward and help you do the same!
