Coaching Changed My Life

That's a pretty loaded title, right?  Truth is: it's the truth.

About four months post-partum I started to get really down on myself.  I wasn't fitting back into my pre-pregnancy clothes and I wasn't able to run or work out the way I had before.  I looked in the mirror and saw the pounds exactly where I didn't want to see them.  

It's no secret that losing the baby weight didn't just happen for me.  It was something I worked at for months before figuring out what worked for me.

I struggled with fluid retention throughout my entire pregnancy and especially at the end and after returning home from the hospital.  That fluid retention made it difficult for me to start working out even once I was cleared by the doctor.

My girlfriend started talking to me about Beachbody in August of 2014.  She shared her love of Shakeology and the workouts and I was still really hesitant about spending the money.  Aren't moms terrible for that?

She started sharing how she was coaching and making enough to purchase her shakes making them affordable and giving her peace of mind about spending the money on herself.  The more she shared about coaching the more I thought, "I can so do this."

So, I purchased the PiYo challenge pack (at the time I was training for a half marathon and thought PiYo would be a great alternative on my "off" days) and decided to try coaching.  I figured I would do it a few months and if it wasn't for me, I would give it up and keep using the DVDs I'd purchased.

Little did I know it would change my life...

Coaching is exactly what I want to be doing.  It's what I've dreamed of doing.  I didn't know it before, but it's what I'm passionate about.  I love helping others find their way on their personal health/fitness journey.  I love the financial freedom it has given me.  And I love the accountability and motivation I have to maintain my own personal health.

Since starting this business I have connected with people I would have never met if not for Beachbody.  I have established relationships and friendships with people that I genuinely care about and whom I have tons in common with.  I've lost the baby weight and then some.  I've gained so much strength.  I've gained financial freedom.  I've gained confidence.

In the most non-narcissistic sense, I love what I see when I look in the mirror.

How many women can say that?

I love what I see because I'm taking care of myself.  I'm working for what I want.  I'm treating my body with the respect it deserves.  I'm embracing it, every single piece of it.  I'm investing in my well-being.

I want this for you.  I want this for everybody.
