So if you didn’t know it before, I’ll share with you that I recently became a Beachbody coach. A lot of people have a lot of different reason for why they chose to become a coach. For me, I was looking for a way to start coaching others, considering the fact that I have put a lot of time and attention into the “learning” phase of my health and wellness background. What you may or may not know is that I hold my Masters of Arts in Human Services with a specialization in Health and Wellness. The kicker to this is that I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. I have so many reasons why I haven’t made this public knowledge, but the biggest is because I was afraid that people would judge me based on the fact that I’m not at my goal. What I am learning through my upline coach, Teresa, and what my good friend, Amber told me was that people can and will appreciate my journey. The fact that none of this is easy for me and that I have to fight for the time and consistent motivation to exercise and practice clean eating is something that people can identify with.
I chose Beachbody because I saw it as a way to help me begin my journey towards helping others. The fact that they provide guidance and support through everything is invaluable. Also, I would love to find a bit more financial freedom as I am getting ever so close to sending my kiddos to college.
I am working my way through my first week of the 21 Day Fix and I have to say that even though I’ve hard to change my schedule a bit (and to the dreaded early morning workouts @5:30am) I’m feeling really good. The 30 minute workouts can be modified to most any fitness level and the meal plan is really easy to follow. Every day this week I have had my Shakeology as well. I add fruit to it so that I can kill 2 birds with one stone.
I’m totally and completely excited about this opportunity to help others along their fitness journey.
