It is indeed rare in today’s world of self appointed coaches to discover someone who is the genuine article. Bringing heart, knowledge and a unique spirit to each and every encounter, Fran stands alone on my list as a true transformer. She does so with a humility that is extraordinary, making certain, each step of the way, her clients know it is they who deserve the credit for changes, improvements and achievements. Work you hard till your potential is reached and then succeed? Yes. Stunningly, you’ll love working hard, pushing your limits. In 25 years of dealing with coaches, training them, being coached by them, Fran is more than my favorite. She is the only person I’d let coach me. If you want a baby-sitter, she’s not your coach. If you seek authentic change from a spiritually centered expert who has accomplished great things herself … what are you waiting for and why are you waiting?

I have worked with Fran to reach my health goals three years and counting. Whether it was to lose 20 pounds, increase my endurance, or just feel better about myself, she coached me through it all. Her supportive coaching was steadfast and gave me the confidence to set bigger goals for myself. I knew that if she believed I could do it that I could do it. She held me accountable to reaching my goals within the timeframe that we set. When we encountered obstacles to reaching them, she always helped me to figure out how to overcome them. Fran's calm and steady support gave me the ability to re-evaluate what was preventing me from reaching my goals and together we found a better solution that worked.
When I was introduced to Fran 4 years ago, I knew I had to work with her. She is in perpetual personal-growth mode to better herself and she wants the same for those on her team. Because of her I have opened up my mind and I will forever be in personal growth mode as well. It makes me a better man, father, brother and son to my family and those around me. You don't get the opportunity to meet people like Fran very often. But, if you do, you quickly realIze that she is a huge gift for your life!
I'm so glad Fran is my coach because...she NEVER gave up on me. I gained 60lbs with both my pregnancies, I felt sluggish and miserable. Not about being a new mom (my kids are my world!!!) but about being bigger than I've ever been in my life (205lbs). After I talked to Fran about the workouts and shakes I picked what I wanted to do (T25 and chocolate flavor shakeology) and started my workout/weight loss journey. Fran never ever doubted me! Actually, I used so many excuses before and she will call you out on them haha! I slowly started to see a difference. After the first round of T25 I couldn't believe my results so I did another round! And ever since then I've been hooked! Fran and the beach body products have changed my life for the better. I've never weighed less (135lbs), I have so much energy for my boys, my diet has changed dramatically (for the better), and I couldn't have done this without Fran!!!! She is definitely someone to look up to! Thank you love!!!
Fran's the kind of coach who you have no doubt that she truly cares about you. I would work with Fran because you success is as important to her as her own.
Thank you Fran for introducing me to Team Beachbody & Shakeology. Since meeting our weight loss goals my husband & I needed to find a ways to keep it off. I love that I have access to all these amazing workouts & I do have my favorites. As for the shakes they are really yummy with so much nutrients then those other brands out there & we have tried a lot of them.
Fran has been the best mentor to me and is such a bright light. She has helped me find the fire and drive in myself that I never knew I had. She encourages me and has helped develop me into the leader I am today. Although I have a long way to go in my journey I know I can always turn to Fran for her exceptional guidance and experience in health and business. Thank you FRAN!
Fran's the kind of coach who ALWAYS has your back. I never felt alone when I was a part of her groups. She was so involved, so interactive, but I could tell she TRULY cared. When I worked with Fran I honestly felt protected. I felt loved and cared for, which is more than half the battle when you're on a fitness and business journey. It's such a mental process, and without the constant guidance and mental support I received, I KNOW I wouldn't be where I am today. She has truly been an integral part in my success in both my fitness and business, and I cannot be more grateful
I've known Fran for 3 years now and she's one of the best coaches out there! What makes Fran special is how she coaches you through the inside changes first. She teaches you that when you change the inside with self love the outside reflects that. She even "walks the walk" with you and leads through example! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a true lifestyle change and end that fad diet curse. You never feel alone or lost with her as a coach as long as you put in work too!
Fran Patoskie has helped me with both physical and spiritual fitness.
When I met Fran, I was a living an insanely busy life as a husband, father of two young boys, full time teacher, part time working musician, and just stretched almost to breaking. My health was headed into a downward spiral and I bought Beachbody's FOCUS T25 home workout program, which miraculously connected me to Coach Fran. My objective at the time was not weight loss, but in increase in energy, which I desperately needed to keep up with my breakneck schedule.
She helped me understand the objective of the workout program, patiently encouraged me to examine my nutrition, and invited me to engage in conversation with the Beachbody community both online and in person. Please understand that at the time all this was happening, I was very skeptical about EVERYTHING. I didn't want to follow the schedule, or the meal plan, or try Shakeology. What won me over time and again was Fran's clear and direct, but gentle encouragement. She never forced me to do anything or made me feel like I was unworthy or incapable. For me, that was huge.
With Fran's help, I lost a total of 30 pounds and decreased my pants size from a tight 36 to a loose 28. My energy level went through the roof and stayed there. I transformed from the sluggish guy snoozing on the lawn chair at my kids' soccer game to the enthusiastic dad who couldn't wait to get out there and kick the ball around before and after the games. Certainly, I did the hard work and made effort to reach out to Fran, but her encouraging words and generosity with time and resources kept me on track, especially at those times when I could have easily fallen off track.
While striving every day to DO the scheduled workout, I began to realize that this is exactly the same kind of discipline that's needed to strengthen my spiritual walk as a follower of Jesus Christ. I mentioned this to Fran and was so grateful to learn that we valued the same spiritual ideals. The same genuine encouragement she gave as a fitness coach, also helped me to make decisions that shaped my family's spiritual direction as well. My family's home life is significantly less chaotic, more focused and purposeful, and we are growing in our faith each day. I now have the capacity to reciprocate that to others, and return the kindness back to Fran!
I thank you Fran for being the specialist that you are. I have been helped by you spiritually and emotionally in changing my eating and movement habits. I cannot express how grateful I am to have you as a coach. You really make a difference. I look forward to our future endeavors and celebrating success!
Fran is one of the most inspiring people I know. She has a way with helping people push to be their very best. She asks powerful questions to engage you, to encourage you, to help you grow. She is very knowledgeable, giving and driven to help you succeed.
One of Fran’s greatest strengths as a coach is her understanding that being healthy goes beyond the physical. When you work with Fran your results are complete health made up of what you can see (physical) what you can feel (emotional) and what you can sense (spiritual). Holistic healthy means a longer more complete way of life.
Fran is an amazing coach! She believed in me and encouraged me to do things I never thought possible. I couldn't be more blessed to have her in my life!
-Angela Stephens, who lost 100 pounds
Fran has been part of my journey for over six years. At 180 pounds overweight and no hope for my future I quickly found out that Fran knows how to get people to dream, to set goals and to believe in themselves. She takes someone from a couch to their very own Grand Canyon. I know that because she did that for me in the form of two full marathons. We never see potential in ourselves that others see, Fran saw potential in me even before I could see it in myself.
