Why did I become a Beachbody Coach??

What do I as a coach?

What you think:

Someone that sells workouts and shakes and wants your money

Someone that works out day and night

What I really am is:

Someone that cares about you!

Someone that has passion for life and health

Someone that reads and studies books on nutrition, fitness, and personal development to better help you

Someone that wants to support you and witness your before and after

Someone who once felt like crap, was depressed, who had given up before

Someone who also loves pizza, bread and chocolate

Someone that also gets tired and lazy

Someone that wants you to feel better

Someone that wants to push you just enough for you to discover what you are really capable of doing

Someone that makes you a priority

Someone who wants to help you have the determination and passion to stay committed to yourself

Someone who would rather answer your questions than go to bed early

Why am I a coach? 

I decided to become a coach in May of 2014. I had started my fitness journey with the 21 Day Fix and my beachbody coach had provided me with motivation and accountability to get fit and change my life. The Challenge Group I was in provided me with additional support, guidance, and became friends I could turn to when I needed them. After 5 rounds, I lost 55.5 lbs doing the 21 Day Fix and I have learned so much about eating healthy and exercise that I wanted to share my journey with others. I have so much information that I need to help others with their struggles. I know what it is like to feel miserable, to feel alone, to sneak and hide, but always put on a happy face. I know what it is like to help everyone else, and take myself for granted. Now I look back and can't believe how far I have come. And I look to the future with such excitement and optimism. To be honest, there have been days that I didn't think I could do it anymore and I wanted to give up. But because of my beachbody support group and coach I kept pushing through and pushing play each day.

When I first signed up, I signed up as a Discount Coach, with no intention of ever being an actual coach. I wanted to order Shakeology and my challenge pack to get the discount. Oh I hadn't mentioned? You get a 25% discount on all Beachbody products...including Shakeology....BONUS! Drinking Shakeology everyday the weight fell off even faster. It gave me more energy, improved my skin, hair, and nails. Eating clean, exercising, and Shakeology helped me to sleep more soundly. I started telling other people about what I was doing and here we are....I was encouraging others to try Shakeology and the fitness programs. I am now starting to blog, I have been posting daily motivational tips on facebook, twitter, and instagram and people are interested in what I was doing. They are providing me with more motivation, and words of encouragement! I am so excited to see that I am having a positive influence on others, including my own family that I want more. I was not only doing my workouts each day to better myself and my health but now I knew that others were watching and I had to stay accountable, I couldn't fall off the horse because I don't want to let others down. This has become a way of life, eating clean and exercising and now I wouldn't want to think of it any other way. It's amazing to me, that before my decision to change my lifestyle, I couldn't go 1 day without eating cookies, or chocolate, or something else that had no nutritional value. Now I can go an entire week, or even a month and not cheat once. This is huge!!
