I had no idea that the years and years I spent motivating others to get healthy would be so beneficial in my life today as a Beachbody Coach!
Since my early twenties, I have been very passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle. Running, working out, eating a healthy diet and being a strong advocate of this lifestyle were all an important part of who I was. But instead of following that path as my career, I did what most people do…I got a ‘real‘ job!
For nearly 15 years, I worked in Corporate America. Moving from job to job to every few years or so, it wasn’t that I didn’t like what I did, I just had no passion for what I did. I never left work with a feeling of satisfaction or that I made a difference. I did the job. I got paid.
Although fitness remained at the top of my priorities, inside I was feeling lazy and uninspired. I truly believed that as long as if I worked out in the morning, I was entitled to spend the entire evening sitting on the sofa watching hour after hour of mindless television. I had no idea how my future was being scripted and it wasn’t promising.
Finding my Passion
In April of 2010, my brother introduced me to a workout called Insanity and it changed my life! It was the first time I had ever really dedicated myself to a home DVD workout and I was blown away by the results. In 60 days, I lost 12 pounds and dropped 4 percent body fat. To me, those were amazing results and I couldn’t help but share it with everyone.
Beachbody Coaching is a unique opportunity. I was already telling everyone about my success and sharing my story daily. I became a coach to help others achieve the same level of success I had. I found a way to make an income doing what I loved! How awesome is that?
It’s been over five years since I took that first step to coaching when I decided to workout at home instead of the gym. I honestly don’t even recognize my life before that time. I felt stuck, uninspired, frustrated. Now my job as a Beachbody coach allows me to help others get physically healthy and financially fit while I get to live and work with passion each day!
I left my full-time job in July 2011 and I’ve been able to do things that I would have never EVER done had it not been for coaching. I’ve helped so many people turn their lives around and get healthy, I’ve been able to take my family on awesome vacations, I spend more time at home, I have amazing friends I’ve met throughout this journey, but most importantly, I got my most important job back…being a MOM!
Coaching helped me become a better person, mom, friend, mentor and woman passionate about what I do!
