5 Day Sneak Peek into Beachbody Coaching



It was about a year ago that I took my first giant leap of faith.  I bought T25 and was so excited to get a sensible workout routine in place.  Little did I know that Beachbody had an amazing coach base.  After I received my DVD'S I noticed I was eligible for a FREE health coach.  I thought... WHAT?  FREE - SEND THEM MY WAY - I AM IN! Okay what is the catch?  Well there wasn't one!



Since then I have grown so much in every aspect of my life.  I have become a better mother, wife, daughter and friend.  I am a much better person because of Beachbody.  I have changed my eating habits drastically.  I have lowered my cholesterol and allowed myself to not get on statin drugs.  I have removed anxiety medication from my daily life.  I have changed.  I am still ME.  But I am the NEW ME.  I am a better person because of my lifestyle change.  I thank Beachbody each and every day for this wonderful opportunity.

Not only am I able to stay at home with my Son but I get to set my own hours.  I get to meet amazing people in my journey.  I get to help them become healthy and fit.  I LOVE MY JOB! I am making a difference one person at a time.  One day at a time. 


What are you doing today to better yourself?  What are you doing to make yourself feel more confident in your own skin?  How are you removing stress out of your life?  What is your plan to get off your medication?  Change is hard. Change isn't always for everyone.  But if you are even considering Beachbody coaching we should chat.  


I was never athletic.  I was never a big fitness guru... and here I am today working from home as a health and fitness coach, making money and living my dream <3  WILL YOU JOIN ME?  We kick off Monday March 23rd for a FREE 5 DAY SNEAK PEAK on what is Beachbody coaching?
