Here are eight compelling reasons to consider before investing in my membership.

Recently, I came across a powerful concept in Adam Grant's book 'Originals' that deeply resonated with me. I'm excited to incorporate this concept into my upcoming blog.

In the past, I struggled with selling my services because it felt unnatural. However, this concept from 'Originals' has made it clear that I should start by explaining why not to do something. This approach opens people up to innovative ideas without putting them on the defensive.

So, in my blog, I'll be presenting all the possible objections to investing in my online service, providing complete transparency. While I'm confident in the positive impact my service can have, I believe it's essential to empower you to make the best decision for yourself.

Reason #1

Inflexible Schedule

The primary reason to reconsider the ELB membership is if you can't attend the live weekly sessions held on weekdays at noon EST. These sessions are interactive and offer personalized corrections if you enable your camera. Missing these sessions, including the Sunday Mindful Communication class at 8 PM EST, might diminish the value of your membership.

If the set live session times don't align with your availability, consider our RECORDED membership option for a small fee. With it, you gain access to a library of over two hundred recorded workouts, stretches, and meditation sessions. However, self-motivation is crucial here because there won't be the same community-driven accountability found in the ELB LIVE membership.

For those unable to join live sessions, you can CLICK HERE to access the recordings for what makes sense for your budget, or for even less than $6 per month. You'll also have access to our EYE TALK THRU community for discussions about your progress, problems, or successes, with guidance and support from me and fellow members.

Now, let's explore the second reason this membership might not be the right fit for you.


Reason #2 

Financial Constraints

If you find it challenging to afford our membership, it's a valid concern. The standard cost is $199 per month, but we offer a special rate of $99 for passionate animal rights activists. We extend this discount because we understand the dedication and selflessness of activists who work tirelessly to create a more harmonious and peaceful world for all living beings.

However, if both options remain financially out of reach for you, regardless of your activist status, we have a flexible Pay What You Want Program.

You can CONTACT ME, and we will come to an understanding about an amount that fits your budget. Please know that the pricing is set to align with our values and the support we receive from our community. If you can't afford it, rest assured that other members have already contributed on your behalf.

The ELB membership aims to reduce stress in your life, providing a space for functional movement, endorphin release, mindfulness through meditation, and a sense of belonging among like-minded individuals who share the desire for a better world.

If you can attend live sessions and are committed, please contribute an amount that you can comfortably afford, with a minimum investment of $5. [Link above]. Now, let's move on to reason number 3.


Reason #3

Introducing Coach Michelle

If you're unfamiliar with me, I'm Coach Michelle, with over a decade of experience in the wellness and fitness industries, specializing in mixed martial arts. In 2016, I founded my own business, and I hold a master's honors degree from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. You can learn more about my background and expertise on MY WEBSITE, which features an extensive ABOUT ME section and a wealth of materials.

For those who are unsure about joining, I offer 2 weeks of FREE TRIAL sessions, allowing you to experience my approach firsthand. Once you become a member, you'll also have the opportunity for a 15-minute complimentary consultation call with me to tailor our program to your unique goals. After all, what works for one person may not work the same way for another.

If you still have questions or need more information before making a decision, feel free to reach out to me via email at [email protected]. We can engage in a dialogue, and I'm even available for a "pre-consultation" meeting via Zoom to address any concerns and provide reassurance. Your well-being is my priority, and I'm here to support you on your journey to a healthier, more balanced life.

Reason #4 

Injuries and Modifications

If you're dealing with injuries, I completely understand your hesitation to join the program. During live sessions, I provide numerous modifications, but the pace can be brisk. It's crucial to emphasize that listening to your body is of utmost importance.

In the recorded sessions, you have the flexibility to pause and take extra time to connect with your body, which can be particularly beneficial if you're dealing with lingering injuries. This approach allows you to move at your own pace and tap into your body's needs.

For those who prefer participating in live sessions, please communicate with me about your physical condition and limitations in advance. This way, we can have a conversation and plan modifications tailored specifically to you. Open communication ensures that we're both prepared for a safe and effective session. Your well-being is my priority.

Reason #5 

Interactive Sessions

During our sessions, you have the option to use the chat box for occasional comments or responses since your audio will be muted. However, excessive chatting can disrupt the flow of the session, so it's encouraged to keep it minimal.

I'm here to engage with your comments and provide support, and I'm willing to stay after class as long as needed to address your questions and concerns. If you have something personal to discuss, you can unmute yourself, and I can even pause the recording for privacy.

Remember, you also have access to the Eye Talk Thru community, where you can interact with other members and me. Additionally, I offer 1-on-1 coaching programs, which you can inquire about separately. Your participation is valued, and I'm here to assist you in the way that best suits your needs.

Reason #6 

Workout Environment Choice

If you prefer working out in a gym with your routine and headphones on, it's essential to consider practicality. In a gym setting, following online classes on your phone can be challenging due to visibility issues, headphone cords, distractions, and interruptions.

For those who already have a gym routine that works for them, I encourage you to keep going. The ELB membership is designed for flexibility and convenience, allowing you to exercise from the comfort of your home, outdoors, or wherever suits you best. Even if you lack the recommended basic equipment, like dumbbells or yoga mats, I offer alternative options using everyday materials like towels.

If you have a coach or mentor who's been guiding you effectively, it's essential to show gratitude for their support. Teachers often appear when we're ready to learn, and expressing your appreciation can be incredibly rewarding for both you and your mentor. Those unsolicited messages of recognition can be truly heartwarming, especially when they didn't expect it. Keep up the excellent work and stay committed to your fitness journey, whether it's with us or your current mentor.

Reason #7 

Embracing Online Workouts

Some friends and clients have reservations about online workouts without even trying them. However, during the COVID pandemic, many of my in-person clients transitioned to online training and ended up loving it.

Now, with the choice to train online or in person, they continue to choose the online option because of its convenience. The concept of our online membership is to bring together a fantastic community of individuals working out, stretching, and meditating, all from the comfort of their homes or any location of their choice.

I encourage you to give it a shot, even if you've never tried online workouts before. You have two free weeks of trial AND can cancel your membership anytime you want, providing flexibility and no long-term commitment.

As someone who travels frequently, I plan my days around our live sessions (12 PM EST on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and 8 PM EST on Sundays). If I can make it work to stay active, enhance my mindset, and break a sweat with the ELB crew, I believe you can too if it aligns with your goals and preferences. Try it, and let's elevate our fitness journey together!


Reason #8 

Accountability and Community

Accountability within the ELB community is truly invaluable. If you're someone who doesn't feel a strong connection to me, Coach Michelle, or the community, you might not fully experience the intended accountability.

In that case, I recommend joining with a training friend or exploring other options that better suit your accountability needs. However, if you decide to commit to the membership, the group, and me as your Coach, you're in for an enriching experience.

ELB is more than just workouts; it's a new way of life. You'll integrate movement, stretching, and meditations weekly, along with mindful communication on Sundays. Plus, you'll receive tips, engage in post-class discussions inspired by our daily quote, and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Our Eye Talk Thru community is there to ensure you stay committed to attending classes regularly. Even if you opt for the recorded version, you'll still have access to the community. When you complete a session and leave a comment in the community, I'll personally acknowledge and encourage your progress.

Embrace the accountability and support offered within the ELB community, and you'll find it enhances your fitness journey in more ways than you can imagine.
