My Story: Why I Became a Beachbody Coach

I'll be honest - I've never been comfortable in front of the camera. BUT I felt in my heart that I needed to share with you why I chose to become a Beachbody coach and speaking to you directly from my heart seemed like the only acceptable way to do it.

For so many years I was depressed, anxious and completely unhappy (you can read more about my story here and here). The medications I was prescribed caused me to put on so much weight and over time I went from feeling pretty and confident to insecure and self-conscious. I put on a happy face for everyone, but I hated who I had become and my marriage was suffering big time. My doctors told me that exercise would help -- but I was at a point where my husband literally had to take me for walks around our neighborhood (like our dog!) just to get me out of the house. I felt like I had hit rock bottom.

Before getting pregnant, I managed to gradually wean myself off of the medications (under my doctor's supervision) -- but the weight I gained (and the health problems I'd developed as a result) seemed like they were here to stay. But it wasn't until I had complications during my pregnancy that I realized just how important my health was -- both physically and emotionally. And once my daughter was born, I knew I was ready to commit 100% to getting myself healthy. My doctor only sealed the deal when she told me that I'd need to lose weight before getting pregnant again. This was serious.

So I started out with a beginner exercise program (Hip Hop Abs) and added Shakeology to my daily diet, and I immediately started to see and feel the results. I was actually motivated. My mood improved. My outlook on life improved. My confidence returned. I have ENERGY again! I was actually excited about something!! And as I healed, my marriage started to heal. Shortly after completing my first Beachbody program I knew that I needed to share my experience with as many people as I could -- because if I can do it, anyone can do it. I literally turned my life around with Beachbody and the chance to pay it forward as a coach (and actually get paid to help others enjoy the same success) is just icing on the cake.
