Struggle to Success ~ Starting my Business

Your Life Becomes what you Think About Most of the Time ~ The Secret

If you have followed my story, you may know me as a Fitness Instructor, a Turbo Kick Presenter, a Motivator, a Wife…and I am…I am all those things but what I didn’t even know about myself until most recently is that I have become a Life Changer!!

3 years ago I wouldn’t have ever thought that my life would take the turn that it did…but it has…and a lot of it is due to having my MIND in the right place!!  I did receive an Amazing Opportunity that could change my life, but if my MIND wasn’t in the right place to RECEIVE & ACCEPT IT I’m not sure the end result would still be the same.  I have read “The Secret” along with many other Personal Development books designed to help me become the BEST PERSON that I can be.  I recently read a quote by Jim Rohn “Work harder on yourself than you do on your Job…Work your Job and Earn a Living, Work on Yourself and Earn a Fortune!! —-  The Secret ~ Your Life becomes what you Think about Most of the Time… What are you thinking about most of the time? Who are you spending most of your time with? Because the Top 5 People you spend the MOST TIME with is the end result of who you become….wow!!!

I invite you read and watch my story…after Struggle comes Opportunity…the question is are you READY to Embrace It?  It might be your one chance to Change Your Life…I have done “it” and the only way I can possibly say Thank You is to LEAD OTHERS on the same path…I want to help as many people as I can to do the same – find Happiness, Success, Passion & Financial Hope…your Someday just might be Today…its 100% up to you!!

3 Years ago I signed up to start my own Fitness Business as a Rep for the Company that produces P90X, Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, Turbo Fire & More!  Basically I’m a Resource helping people find a SOLUTION to Weight Loss, Fitness, Health & Finances…I decided to sign up because of a couple of reasons—

#1 I love TURBO!!! & Believe in the product 110%

#2 I LOVE Helping People get Healthy & Fit – and with “Beachbody” its easy because the products are INCREDIBLE and they are already in place!! I’m NOT the fitness professional, I’m simply the customer saying hey you should try this, its worked for me & I know it can for you too!!

#3 It’s Online Marketing!! YES I am working my fitness business via social media sites like Facebook, Blogging and more…why? This is where most people are hanging out so why not? Its also makes it 10x easier for me to meet new people and build relationships quickly….and if you think this is “sales”, its not!! It’s building & mentoring a team of people who share the same goals!

#4 I had faith in my Leadership–My Coach is a 25 Star Diamond Level Coach & she LEADS US to Success!! How? A Business Plan is in place all I had to do is LEARN IT and PLUG IN…Webinars, Team Calls & Videos at my fingertips!

#5 Financial Freedom~ Yes this is REAL!! By helping people DO THE SAME THING I AM DOING…the Beachbody Business Plan sets you up for success based on your Goals & Time Comittment…I am working on a 6 figure salary in 3 years…this is a business that is Part-Time that you will do on the side from your full time J.O.B but can and will set you up for the rest of your life….!!!!!

It’s Real, I know it because it’s happening to me!!  I LOVE IT, I’m ADDICTED to it!!  I LOVE TURBO — But what I Love even more is helping others FIND this business and SHOW them HOW they can Change Their Life the same way…..put fear aside…if you don’t do something DIFFERENT, your life will continue on the same path that it is on….take a minute and think about it…WHAT IF you made a decision TODAY to start something for your FUTURE NOW, where will your life be in 2012? 2013?

What would happen if you FOCUSED in a New Direction…

Contact Me (in the upper right hand) and let’s chat…it’s never too late to start!!!  I would be honored to have you on my team!!!!!

Day 30 of P90X Hybrid – It’s been rough

Ok this has been a rough past few weeks!  I started off strong but hit a hault when my IBS started to take control of my life…physically, mentally & emotionally I hit the WALL!!  BUT what’s important is that I got right back on track…and I think that’s what we all have to remember, Fitness is a Journey Not a Destination.  It’s a Challenge, a Struggle…but the journey is worth the ride!! Take a listen to my video blog:

Check out my Shoulders & Arms Workout – I can see the bloat diminishing, my body starting to get lean and change shape!! I can see a big difference from Day 1…one day at a time, that’s all I can focus on

P90X / Insanity Hybrid…It begins

I am Super EXCITED to be going on a Caribbean Cruise in March 2011 through Beachbody…and this is definitely all the MOTIVATION I need to take my Fitness Program to the next level!!  Last January 2010 I did P90X along with taking Shakeology regularly and lost 11lbs initially in the 90 days!  I felt GREAT but was ready to change my program up, cause I’m going to be HONEST….P90X is rough!!

So here I am ONE YEAR later, I have kept off the weight…now I’m looking to take off the LAST 7 lbs and ultimately increase my lean muscle & Get RIPPED!!  So I am going to be doing a HYBRID of P90X & Insanity!!

I know from the experience from the first time….anytime I change my diet and start to eat clean, my IBS freaks out causing bloating!!  Ugh!  It will take 1-2 weeks to get it all back in balance…here is a clip of my workout of P90X on Day 2

To hold myself ACCOUNTABLE I am going to blog my journey along the way, including my pics, videos, weight measurements, food log and more!  I know I have a GREAT Workout Program that WORKS!!! Now its just a matter of staying organized, making time & just DOING IT!!

Day 1: 1/ 10/11

Starting Weight – 139

Goal Weight – 7 lbs / 1 jean size

Measurements:


So here I go!!  When you take the GUESSWORK out of the equation, I’m telling you —It is a whole lot EASIER!!!  And that’s EXACTLY what P90x & Insanity do for me, I don’t have to THINK about or ask myself:

  • Is this going to work?
  • Will I see results?
  • What workout should I do today?
  • What should I eat?

The Program includes EVERTHING: A Workout Schedule, A Nutrition Guide & a FREE Coach for Motivation & Support….ME!

What is your Missing Link? I believe the main reason most people do not achieve the Fitness or Weight Loss Goals they are striving for is because they are MISSING one of these 3 components….take a look and evaluate yourself in each category…

1. Is your Fitness Program Working for You?

Do you look forward to your workout?  Are you consistently getting New Results Every 30 days?

  • It should be FUN!!!  If it’s not most likely you will lose interest
  • It should be COMPOUND – Incorporates Cardio, Strength & Flexibility
  • Scheduled Workouts: You need a Plan!!  One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they just pick a piece of cardio equipment and start moving….well that is good, but it will only get you so far

2.  Nutrition/Supplements

Are you working out and feeling great but the scale is still NOT MOVING?  Do you feel you lack the ENERGY required to do your workouts each day?  Are you addicted to coffee or diet pop?  If so, that is a red flag to better your nutrition….here are some basic tips:

  • Nutrition Plan that matches your Workout Program: You need a Plan!!  And one that matches the intensity of your workout program
  • Schedule & Plan Ahead:  Just like your Fitness program, you need a nutrition plan that is EASY and takes out all of the guess work for you.  All you have to do is PLAN AHEAD and go to the grocery store
  • Supplements!!  Depending on your fitness goals, supplements are a great way to get the nutrition to your body that you normally wouldn’t eat all in one day including vitamins, proteins shakes & more

3.  Accountability/Support

Are you just starting a workout program?  Do you need motivation or direction?  Do you like the idea of having an Accountability Coach?

  • Everyone needs support!!  Whether you workout at home or the gym, having a go to person to ask questions is key!
  • Positive Energy!!  Surround yourself w/ positive/motivated people…and you will get a lot farther…faster!!

What is your Missing Link? Fitness, Nutrition or Accountability?  FOCUSING on your weakest link might be the KEY to your SUCCESS!!

I met Blasi Jacobi (HI APD) in November 2007 at a Powder Blue Productions Camp for APD’s, we were roomies for one night and have been inseparable ever since!  I’m in chicago and she’s in hawaii, but I feel like she lives down the street…we share the same passion for fitness, positive energy and DREAMING BIG for the future!! We hold one another accountable and have a blast doing it!!  It’s CRAZY when you meet someone and within an hour you feel like you’ve known them your whole life…that’s Blasi 🙂

Along the journey of building my Team in Chicago I met Lisa Koehler.  We bonded the first time we roomed together at the Summit in April and I think we realized at the same time our connection—we are both CRAZY, SILLY, FUN and SUPER DRIVEN women who will do what it takes to succeed!! She is the TOP COACH on my Team, currently a 4 Star Diamond, and now one of my bestest friends!!  We thrive off of each other’s Energy and Passion to Change People’s Lives…We Shop till we Drop and Laugh hysterically non-stop!!

There’s is no doubt in my mind that both of these ladies will be standing along side me when we all ACHIEVE 15 STAR DIAMOND RANK and take the stage TOGETHER!!!

and the next up will be…

Shukria Stewart is my APD Girl from Utah!!  We were teamed up w/ Blasi as Camp Turbo Team Captains in 2009 – Team Turquiose!!!  Again…positive energy is magnetic!!! Its an electricity you can feel in the room and it is ADDICTIVE!!  The 3 of us laughed for an entire weekend all while setting goals and having fun…are you kidding me? I haven’t met people like this my entire life!!!  We all roomed together at summit where we met Kristy Fukumoto thru Blasi—all 5 of us in ONE HOTEL ROOM!!!! Wish I took pictures of that mess!

We recently qualified for Success Club Leadership Training in Dallas Texas!! We worked hard so that we could all attend, meet up, spend quality time together and set NEW goals for final quarter….here are the videos and pictures from an INCREDIBLE weekend!! and YES you are going to laugh…after all if you can’t have FUN doing what you LOVE then why are you doing it?

What Happened: Business & Leadership Training – Shop till we drop – Lisa plays in Coaches vs. Corporate Basketball Game – Audition for the next P90 Workout w/ Tony Horton!! – Dinner & Dancing – Non Stop FUN!!!
