Fitness has been important to me for a long time. After having issues with my health and weight for many years (especially my digestive system), I decided it was time for a permanent change and an end to yo-yo dieting and quick fixes.
It begins 6 years ago when my mother, Nancy, died at the age of 52 from colon cancer. I was crushed. My world fell apart and (I have to admit) I went a little crazy for awhile. However, then something wonderful happened. I stopped and reflected on my dear mother’s life: Could her struggles with weight, stress, and poor diet have contributed to her disease and untimely death? The answer was an emphatic YES!!
After a period of soul-searching, reading, and scouring the internet, I discovered Beachbody and their products. It started with Turbo Jam (I love the music and upbeat moves!) and snowballed from there. Eventually, fitness and healthy diet became an integral part of my life and people like Chalene Johnson (TurboJam, TurboFire, Chalene Extreme) motivated me to make other products such as Insanity, P90X, Insanity Asylum, Hip hop abs, and Brazil Butt Lift a staple of my work-out routine.
The final part of my journey deals with another tragedy. This past July, I lost my twins, Nolan and Nash, after nearly 22 weeks of pregnancy. It was probably the single worst day of my life and, again, I was forced to take a hard look at things. How could I go on, day after day, in a way that would have made my children proud of me? It became clear: helping others. Soon thereafter, I became an Independent Beachbody Coach and haven’t looked back since. Through the multiple layers of accountability, support, and products Beachbody provides, I’ve been able to help family, close friends, and people I’ve never met (aside from the internet!) lose weight, feel great, and get in the best shape of their lives.
If you’ve ever wanted more energy, to look better, or even make more money so you can spend extra time with family or do the things you love, there’s no time like the present to make a fresh start! Invest in yourself and everyone around you will reap the benefit: make that first step today and you won’t regret it!!
