Early on, I realized I really did have a passion with helping others reach their own health goals. Simply encouraging my husband to eat more veggies and workout wasn’t enough. I wanted to lead healthy walking breaks with coworkers, I wanted to talk nutrition with a struggling friend, and I wanted to invite anyone I could find to my Zumba class.
Basically, I’ve always wanted to be a health coach– and while I’m a ways off from obtaining my real dream of possibly being a nutritionist, I am happy to be working with Team Beachbody, a company whose commitment to health is inspiring with tools (including some for FREE) that really work.
WHY did I decide to be a Beachbody Health Coach?
I want to help other people achieve their goals. When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle and weight loss, it can be so daunting at times that the whole thing seems impossible. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I want to be there for those who need the support, like I need too.
I didn’t think I’d be ready to be a coach until I had one of those impressive before and after photos you see on all the informercials, but when a friend who is also a Beachbody Coach reached out to me and said she thought I’d be a great candidate, I realized this could be just what I was looking for. What I can offer you is real encouragement from a real person with the same struggles many of you deal with yourself. Emotional eating? Having trouble finding time to exercise? I’ve been there. Trust me.
But if I can do it, I know you can too and I’d love to help you along the way.
But Why Team Beachbody?
I promise I didn’t just hop on some bandwagon. I’ve actually been drinking Team Beachbody’s protein shake, Shakeology, for over a year and it is seriously something I couldn’t live without. I REALLY need to believe in something for me to share it with other people. But Beachbody? Everything about their mission makes me happy. And their workout programs are guaranteed to get you to sweat. Plus there’s something for everyone. My mom even does HipHop Abs!
Sure, I still do want to be a dietician/nutritionist someday (and thank you to all those who sent me a note of encouragement last week after reading my post about trying to figure out how to help). But right now, I don’t have the money or time to go back to school beyond a small nutrition certification (which I think I may still get). But at least now, I can have tools to help people where they’re at by doing some of the same things I was doing before.
You can sign up for a free membership account and use our free online tools to track your weight loss while also receiving free coaching from me. Remember to join my Facebook group as well where you’ll not only receive daily encouragement, but also the opportunity for challenge groups where people like you are working toward the very same goals.
And if you’re interested in anything beyond the free health coaching, I’m always down for a conversation. Whether your interested in P90x, TurboFire, Focus T25 or any of our other fitness programs, let me know and I’d love help pick one that’s right for you (right now I’m personally loving Turbo Fire and the Hubs is even joining me on T25!).
Plus there’s always my true love– Shakeology, which I’ve been personally drinking for over a year. It single handedly weaned me off of a serious Diet Pepsi addiction, curbed my cravings and really helps me stay on track day-to-day. Heck, even the Hubs says it puts me into a better mood in the mornings. Obviously it’s a miracle potion.
This WON’T Change Anything About the Blog
Before you raise an eyebrow and think I’ve gone to some dark side, know that nothing will change when it comes to the integrity and overall feel of this blog. It’s still going to feature all the same fun stuff and recipes as always. And if I do mention any Beachbody stuff, then its because I have a personal experience with it that I want to share. And if there’s something with Beachbody I DON’T like. Trust me. You’ll all be the first to know.
And honestly, I’ve already mentioned Beachbody (sorta) when I mentioned Shakeology in my Protein Powder Cookie recipe. Why? Because some of their stuff, like Shakeology, is what I’ve been using for over a year and its something that has really come to help me in my own weight loss progress.
Curious? Ask me a question!
* By serious, I mean someone who really is contemplating making a Shakeology purchase and the taste of the product would help in that decision. I have to pay for the samples myself, which I’m willing to do because I believe in the product THAT much, but please only ask if you’re really considering the purchase. If you’re just curious about the taste but would never dream of buying it, please don’t steal from me. Thanks!
