A lot of times people get sticker shock with beachbody but realistically guys it is actually cost saving .... I know your probably like this 🐥 is crazy but hear me out.... Planet fitness is probably one of the cheaper gym memberships out there but even with their basic membership with the startup fee, monthly fee and their sneaky annual fee your looking at $190.... this membership includes walking around aimlessly not knowing where to start, or what to do, and mindlessly making things up! I don't know how many times I have gone to the gym and watched people do things that are either going to cause injury or watch peope do things that is not working what they think it is.... yes they offer personal training but I am gonna be honest with you (I used to work at planet fitness.... not all these trainers are that knowledgable, educated, or have a "body builder" mind set)
Then you have people who choose to not go to the gym because of financial struggle or cost .... but are also not choosing healthy active lifestyle... and when you are unhealthy, eating crappy, treating your body like crap then that leads to more doctor visits, need for prescriptions, and more which adds up cause we all know health insurance does not cover it all (sometimes it covers the bare minimum) so now your paying for medical bills which adds up quickly and it can be all because of choices your making!
Beachbody offers an annual on demand membership for $99 a year, you pay $99 and you get access all year round! You get access to over 150 workout programs with Super trainers who are beyond educated and they give you everything you need and more to be succesfull, as well as you get a personal coach (like me) to help guide you, motivate you, empower you, and inspire you to reach your goals! The most amazing part too is Beachbody offers a 30 day money back guarantee which means if you hate it you get your money back, if you dont get results you get money back, does your gym do this for you? does your health insurance do this for you? Not likely!
You may be reading this & be like yea but you don't get my situation, I don't have money....I DO GET IT! 100% - Check out my story in comments!
San Francisco: Where a six-figure salary is 'low income'
@bbcnews / Ryan Nunn & Jay Shambaugh
A family getting by on $117,400 (£87,970) in one US city can now be considered 'low income', according to government figures. How can that be the case?
That workers with six-figure salaries could be considered "poor" is something that might surprise many people.
But taking into account income and housing costs that is the reality for some families - who may be eligible for housing assistance - according to a recent report from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
In San Francisco and nearby San Mateo and Marin Counties it said $117,400 for a family of four was "low income", while $73,300 (£54,900) was "very low income" - the highest figures anywhere in the country.
A look at how earnings vary across the US and between jobs illustrates what is going in the city and the country as a whole - factors explored by a new study and interactive website by The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution.
Nearly two thirds of American families of four live on less than San Francisco's "low-income" threshold of $117,400.
Across the US, the median (middle) household income for a family of four is $91,000 (£68,170). For a family of any size, the figure is $59,000 (£44,180). (Median incomes are used throughout this piece). And, in a country of 326m, more than 40m people in families of all sizes live below the poverty line, which is $25,100 (£18,800) for a family of four.

I’m not sure how many parents or guardians know this but if your child will be attending a Head Start program or you’re enrolled in WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), please know that according to the California Child Health Prevention and Disability Program (CHDP) and in accordance with the Department of Health Care Services form 4491 (01/08) agreement 7, your CHDP provider must provide a health assessment summary or immunization information including school health reports, immunization records, and any such information required by head start or WIC to you at NO COST!! Today, the office manager from a doctor’s office (that a lot of our head start families see) had the audacity to tell me to “educate our parents” because her staff “just fill out forms” and “can’t always remember if it’s for head start or WIC” and their “policy states that they are allowed to charge $25 per physical completed” and it’s up to the parents to tell them who the form is for so they can waive the fee.
So now, I am telling everyone because a doctor’s office should know this, especially since the doctor signed an agreement to become a CHDP provider. $25 may not be seem like a lot but to a family who’s homeless or is barely making ends meet, $25 could go towards food, gas, or necessities.
