My Story—- How I Got Started With Beachbody

My love for all things active started from the time I was a babe! I grew up playing all different sports and was able to stay really fit even though I ate just about anything I wanted! I went on to play college volleyball where I met my husband, fell in love, got married, and had our first babe, Jonnie by the time I was 21. It was motherhood that gave me a quick slap in the face at reality! I realized what a transition it was going to be to try and find some time for ME and taking care of my body and health. My husband was playing professional football at the time so we were far away from family and I needed to figure out quick how to make working out fit into my schedule. I saw the 10-minute trainer infomercial one night and decided that would probably work for me— I could surely squeeze in a few 10 minute workouts in between baby time— so I ordered it and got to work!

I was able to lose all of my baby weight from that program but I knew I needed to take it to the next level so I could really tighten up and tone by body like I wanted! So I ordered insanity and got just a little more than 1/2 way through the program before I fell off the wagon and got busy with life. I became really interested in photography so learning everything I could about shooting and starting up my own business soon took up all of my non-mommy moments! I would still try and work out here and there but never anything really consistently— and I became so insecure and unhappy with my body. Fast forward 2 years—-after baby #2 my photography business was in full swing so I managed to work out enough to get the weight off by doing 1/2 of insanity again but I could never get myself to stick with the dang program and finish it through to the end! I still wasn’t where I wanted to be physically but I knew that home workouts were the only thing that worked for me and our crazy schedules so I started looking into a new Beachbody program—- I just wanted to switch things up a bit. So I joined a Les Mills Combat challenge group with my coach that I found through Instagram and fell in love with the program, Shakeology, and the actual challenge group environment —– FINALLY I knew that this is what I needed to help me stay accountable!

I wanted to become a coach for the accountability and Shakeology discounts alone— and told my husband that I wanted to give coaching a try—- worst case scenario, I would be paying for my monthly Shakeology with the coach discount and staying in the best shape of my life—– but if I could just get my monthly shakes covered by my Beachbody income then that would just be AMAZING! He was a little hesitant to let me add one more business venture to our already hectic & crazy lives, but he supported me and gave me the go ahead. Well—- little did I know that Beachbody would be a total life changer for us! My Beachbody income does indeed cover my monthly shakes—- along with all of our bills, payments towards my husband’s student loans, and savings for our yearly family vacations. I’m not telling you this to brag or toot my own horn by ANY MEANS! And I hope it doesn’t come off that way—- I just want you to get the real story! I know how I felt at the beginning and how doubtful I was that something like this could really work for me. It almost seems too good to be true—- I get to focus on my health, working out from HOME, setting a great example for my children and creating a healthy lifestyle for them, constantly growing and becoming a better version of ME—–and then I get to inspire others to reach their health & fitness goals and enrich their lives financially as well when they join my team—- can you pinch me, please?! Beachbody has been such a blessing in my life and I am thankful every single day that I get to stay home with my babies, doing something that I’m so passionate about —- fitness & nutrition —- to help provide for my family while my husband is in vet school.

I get to meet and work with so many amazing people in my challenge groups and in this business, it’s incredible! It’s such an amazing thing to see someone’s life change for the better and be a big part of that transformation from the beginning! People are putting their doubts aside, setting big goals and CRUSHING them. They are dreaming big and then even bigger because that’s what happens in Beachbody—– I dream BIGGER now than I ever thought possible and those big dreams are coming into fruition and it is amazing. I tell you this because I want you to know that I was just like you— hesitant to give this a go, thinking that BIG success in this business might happen to other people—- but not me. But I took that leap of faith and gave it all I’ve got and this has been more than I could have ever imagined and there is no stopping until I pull the plug on this! And by golly, that aint gonna happen;) I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m able to be the best mom I can be— at home with my babies. And I’m able to impact hundreds of people who’s lives are so much more fulfilling because of Beachbody— because of one simple decision to start a home workout program and drink Shakeology.
