This site will help you to focus on striving to become the HEALTHIEST version of YOU…physically, mentally and financially.
Yep, this is what we do on a daily basis, and this website you’ve found is our hub for sharing motivation, inspiration, testimonials / success stories and ideas geared toward helping you to CHOOSE to become the best, most healthy version of you possible.
Here’s why we’ve put together this site…because too many people go it along or try to focus on improving only 1 area of their life when the weight of the other few might still bury them. We choose to help our team and our clients focus on 4 Vitals Behaviors for success.
We look forward to learning about the journey you want to take and hope you’ll choose to connect us regularly, both here and on our social media platforms
Let’s get started.
About Chad and Katie Graue
About Katie Graue
I am a busy mom of two amazing kiddos, a girl and a boy.
I am a retired retail pharmacist.
I am not planning to grow old gracefully! I plan to look and feel better at 40 than I did at 20!
I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I signed up as a Team Beachbody Coach in 2010. But I can tell you that it has truly been a life changing experience for me personally and for my family!
Coaching allows me to be an example of healthy values for my kids. Coaching allows us the opportunity to really be significant and successful at the same time.
It allows us to schedule our work around our lives giving us the most precious gift of all, the gift of time as a family!
I love to travel and CHOOSING to become a successful coach had afforded us many opportunities to do just that!
Coaching has helped me stay accountable to my own health and fitness…but I am NOT a fitness buff.
Somedays I still struggle to get my workouts in just like many other people and have probably used every excuse in the book.
…however, I do love the way I look and feel when I am consuming my daily health shake, eating mostly healthy (while still indulging my sweat tooth on occasion) 🙂 AND when I’m pushing play.
Do I believe Team Beachbody offers some value to EVERYONE?
Don’t believe me?? Let’s talk.
About Chad Graue
It’s hard to put into words the direction our life has taken since choosing to buy P90X in August 2009, but I’ll do my best to share a little bit about myself and what this new journey has been like so far.
I was trained as a Doctor of Pharmacy in the late 1990s at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, and upon graduating I worked in the nursing home industry; both in home infusion and as a consultant pharmacist.
I was excited to work in the long-term care industry to help serve an incredibly under-served population, the frail elderly, where my primary responsibilities were to provide customer service to the facility and help the nursing home stay deficiency free for their annual survey by helping manage medication chaos.
I enjoyed it for a time, until I started to be influenced by all of the sickness and lack of hope I was surrounded by. I also became very aware at the volume of medications being consumed that were largely due to decades and decades of obesity.
I had always been a “health first” advocate and primary prevention promoter and I came to the realization that I could fuel my passion better by focusing on creating health, rather than managing sickness.
I learned of the Team Beachbody Coach Network while at a Diabetes Convention in Atlanta, GA, where I met me future sponsoring coach, David.
Soon after I went on to complete my first round of P90X where I ended up dropping 15 pounds and 30% of my body fat, going from 12.5% to 8.5%. I focused HARD on utilizing the nutrition guide and pushing play each day…and felt amazing and confident.
Since that time I have dedicated my days to helping others achieve the same.
What started on very part time basis in early 2010, transitioned to me voluntarily reducing my hours with my pharmacy job in January 2011 and then leaving my job completely on June 30, 2011.
What a feeling.
Since that time I have enjoyed spending my days, every day, on my own terms with flexibility and abundant freedom. We have witnessed some amazing transformations both on our team and in the clients and Beachbody Challenge participants we work with.
Thanks to an AMAZING team (go diamondELITE!), and a great system to plug into, I was fortunate to be one of 96 Elite coaches in 2012 (out of over 100,000 coaches). What I LOVE about being a Team Beachbody Coach and growing a team, is that my success is incumbent upon my personally sponsored coaches being successful. We get to have shared success.
Katie and I and the kids have met most of the Beachbody trainers, taken incredible vacations as a family and are focused on continuing to dream and create a lifestyle I know was not possible in 2010.
Team Beachbody is a GIFT..and I look forward to continuing to share it and find people that are ready to win in life and live a full, healthy, positive life.
