Insanity Transformation
Insanity:  How it Became More than A Physical Transformation

So the last few weeks for my have been a complete whirlwind.  I am completely overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity I’ve been given.  Do you ever feel as though you are given opportunities in this life, but you dismiss them for one reason or another?  Are you someone that takes risks and really seizes the day?  I never really thought I was one of those people.  Rarely do I like to step outside the comfort zone, but in May of 2012 I did, and oh my goodness I am glad that I did. I feel like my business is propelling faster then I can get a hold of but I love every minute of it. I am beyond blessed.

scary choicesToday I want to share you a little bit of my life as a  Success Club 5 ALL STAR and 5  Star Diamond Beachbody coach and Elite Qualifying Coach!! I started this business 18 months ago as a busy mom, a teacher, and victim of the scale. I jumped into coaching after seeing my own results from Insanity and simply invited a couple friends to join me. What started as a hobby to get in shape has turned into a career- a career that has given me the opportunity to stay home with my son on maternity leave, has given me a chance to inspire hundreds to get in shape:  physically and financially, and commit to a healthier and more positive lifestyle.

If you’ve followed my story throughout the last 18 months you know that I am a clean eater, a recipe tester, a fitness fan, and a challenger group guru . Through simply sharing some of my favorite things, I’ve developed an entire team of coaches, The Knockout Brigade, who are also invested in helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.  Daily, I have the opportunity to surround myself with positive, creative thinkers who are successful simply because they share their story. How awesome is that?

What does a coach do?  Simple.  We help people achieve their health and fitness goals. I teach people how to use food as fuel instead of comfort. I am not a nutritionist.  I am not a personal trainer.  I am a mom who finally figured out how to make healthy living work for me. I teach people how to eat.  I teach people about the importance of nutrition. Simply stated:  I pay it forward.

So this is where my journey began only a year and 1/2 ago.I started Insanity followed the schedule EXACTLY, added  Shakeology, and started my eat clean journey. I lost 14  lbs in 90 days and felt amazing. I think the biggest thing was the new found energy I had. I was so EXCITED about my results that when I put my before and after picture side by side I just had to share my results.I had no idea where Beachbody Coaching was going to lead me but I knew that I wanted to make an impact. That desire to pay it forward has become a reality.

step outside your comfort zone
My mind is made up:  I am going to be a 5 Star Elite Coach.

After being given this opportunity, I decided it was time to DREAM BIG.  Heck yes, it was scary!!!! I was setting HUGE goals that I didn’t know if I really could achieve. I was giving those goals deadlines.  I was stepping up as a leader and stepping out of my comfort zone.  It took everything I had to dismiss the seeds of self doubt I was planting.  If you want something, go ALL IN.  Don’t back down.  Don’t make excuses.  Get to work.  And what happens???? Goals get achieved!

Now, looking ahead, to 2014 I have big dreams and big plans, but I know that these can’t be achieved without a team of coaches working to help others. Will you be a part of that dream?  Are you looking to be part of something bigger than you ever thought possible?  Are you ready to reach outside your comfort zone and step into a team committed to helping you succeed?

Today, I wanted to take a minute to introduce you to five Rock Stars of The Knockout Brigade.

SO now what?  What is left to do with the 2013?  DREAM BIGGER.  It’s time to set new goals as a leader.  It’s time to push out of my comfort zone again and get down to business.  It’s time to commit and go all in.  It’s time to help others achieve their health and fitness goals.  2014 is YOUR year.  Be a part of something you didn’t know was possible.  Take risks, fail forward, and always believe that you are destined for greatness!
