WHAT YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT ME and My Real Story with Coaching…I thought long and hard about SHARING this info but the TRUTH is this…I’ve come from a great place of struggle to an Amazing Blessed Life right now and although Beachbody was my “VEHICLE” and I’m soooo THANKFUL, I built my Coaching Biz around RELATIONSHIPS, FRIENDSHIPS and giving people back HOPE!!!!  WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW is….I grew up as an only child, my mom was a single mom and WORKED ALL THE TIME!!! I’m thankful to have her work ethic (and Gram’s too!!!) but as a child I HATED IT!! I grew up w/ the neighbors families, they took me to school, I walked myself home and then spent afternoons with different friends and their family dinners everyday…I know my mom HAD TO DO what she needed to do to put DINNER on the table and pay the mortgage, but she was never there and I HATED IT!! I promised myself…I would NEVER do that…if I could control it!!!  Sooo you may know I fell in love with Fitness in college (that I only finished 2 years of BTW) and started working like a MAD WOMAN!!!!  As a Fitness Instructor I LOVED what I did but knew I was never going to make a REAL INCOME doing that…13 yrs later I was working 50-60 hours a week in a corporate CUT THROAT WORLD, Stressed out to the MAX, Gaining Weight and still swallowed in credit card debt and living paycheck to paycheck….my only saving Grace was my husband 🙂  4 1/2 years ago I was introduced to Beachbody and my world has CHANGED FOREVER–!! You see I’m an EVERYDAY GIRL with more struggles to post about than you would ever want to hear….I knew GOD had a BIGGER PURPOSE for my Life, as from Great Struggle Comes Great Opportunity!!! Beachbody has been my vehicle to EMPOWER OTHERS to Change their Lives!!! Through Fitness, Weight Loss, Encouragement and YES of course making a CRAZY INCOME!!  As you can see on the picture below – in 4.5 years I am earning NOW in ONE MONTH what I made in ONE YEAR at my previous “career” in downtown Chicago!!  I’m NOT BRAGGING….I have done this by HELPING OTHERS DO THE SAME!! The Coaches on my TEAM are just like me, just like you…sick and tired and WANT LIFE TO CHANGE!! Me helping them, HELPS ME and My Husband go completely DEBT FREE!!!
The Earnings below are ONLY from 1 Business Center – I have 3!!!!  In 2010 I was on UNEMPLOYMENT CHECKS struggling to buy groceries – in 2011 I made 6 Figures from Beachbody!! In 2012 I paid off $30K in Credit Card Debt!!  I will be the WORK FROM HOME MOM now…and you see that is what its all about!! WORKING HARD, Doing what you are PASSIONATE ABOUT to provide the BEST LIFE for YOU and YOUR FAMILY!!!

HOW I LOST THE LAST 20LBS!

Like most women, I’ve been on a life long journey to manage my weight.  Yes I am a Fitness Instructor and Yes I love to workout…simply for the Energy it gives me and the endorphin high that I’m addicted to!!  So why was I always struggling to lose the Last 10lbs? Even to hold the weight I was at was a struggle…it seemed like I could gain 5 lbs in a weekend if I didn’t workout or watch everything that I put into my mouth.  I like eating healthy and love to workout so what was the problem?  What was I missing?  This was a question I asked myself for a long time ….and I honestly thought that my body was suppose to be this way, it wanted to be at this weight and I had to accept that or did I?  Ultimately I wasn’t happy and was determined to find a solution…

20lbs later….


I have found the solution!!  Not only to the weight loss which I have kept off now for over a year, but for the first time in my life I am in CONTROL of my weight!!!  I have more Energy than Ever and I’m NOT hungry!! That’s powerful!!!  Here is how I did it….

In January of 2010 I was at my heaviest weight of 151lbs!  I made a commitment to start P90X and drink Shakeology everyday!!  P90X is exactly what my body needed!  My body is conditioned for cardio due to years of teaching group fitness but P90X was completely different…it is a 90 day at home fitness program involving Muscle Confusion.  Basically a different workout each day so your body can’t get comfortable because you’re constantly changing it up!! Then every 30 days the program changes and steps it up a notch!  The first 30 days kicked my booty!!  I started to see muscle definition, my strength improved and the inches started to melt away!!

The Game Changer for me was Shakeology!! And that’s where I really started to lose the weight from.  How does it work? Basically its a Health Drink with over 70 natural ingredients including Super Fruits from around the world!!  It is superior nutrition that my body had never experienced before!  Within the first 2-3 weeks I watched my Sugar Cravings start to disappear, my Energy Increase and my Body began to Crave WATER!!!  Having struggled with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) most of my life, the digestive cultures and priobitics in Shakeology helped my digestive system as well!!  Personally, everytime I go on a nutrition program and restrict my calories to lose weight I get migraines, my energy gets zapped, I get moody, hungry and just in general I don’t feel like myself.  Maybe you can relate?  But this time was different..because my body was getting all the nutrients its NEVER had before all in one meal… I felt AMAZING!!  I actually 100% gave up: Coffee, Diet Pop, Artificial Sweetners, Dairy & Red Meat!!!  I never would have been able to do that without Shakeology!  I drink it everyday once or twice a day and I LOVE IT!!!

In 90 Days I lost 11lbs w/ P90X & Shakeology!! I then started Turbo Fire along with Eating Clean and lost the remaining 9lbs!! I am at a NEW WEIGHT…a weight I wasn’t even at in high school!!!  These programs WORK!

I drink Shakeology everyday and will for the rest of my life…it has changed my life ~ I feel 10 years younger

I’m not going to say it was Easy…but it was Easier 🙂  The workout program is laid out for you to just follow, it comes with an eating guide and a motivational Coach like me 🙂  I’m thankful for these convenient and results orientated workouts to have at my finger tips!!  I now have the tools to not only help myself but my friends & network get in the BEST SHAPE OF OUR LIFE!!  It starts with a question….are you ready to do the work and change your life?

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!!!!!

Cruisin the Caribbean

If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would be on a Caribbean Cruise in 2011, I would have said NO WAY…but WOW has life changed!

I want YOU to know that ANYTHING is possible when you set your Mind to it!!  Hardwork, Determination and FOCUS were definitely my Power Words for 2010….I was laid off from my full time job of over 13 yrs at the end of 2009 and instead of falling into a deep depression, I DECIDED this was my Opportunity to work my Business w/ full FOCUS!!  You would be surprised how far Goal Setting and Self Help Books will go….A Long Way!!  I had a Plan B and I’m so thankful I did…because this is where it led me

I earned a trip for 2 on a 7 Day Caribbean Cruise on the Oasis of the Seas!!  Oh yea baby! My hubby couldn’t go because of MMA Training season so I took one of my best friends, Shukria Stewart (APD from Utah).  Over 300 Beachbody Coaches were on the boat including 2 of my Coaches: Lisa Koehler and Kristia Hord!  I was MORE EXCITED for them to have Earned this trip than I honestly was for myself!!  On top of that we met up w/ my Success Partners: Blasi Jacobi, Kristi Fukumoto and my Upline ROCKSTAR Coach – Christine Dwyer & Platinum Presenters Team!!! Not to mention Corporate and staff made the trip as well…..

If you’re thinking, ohhhh it was a Business trip….think AGAIN!! In this Business we don’t know the difference between Work and Play!! And that’s the BEST way to describe my life!! I’m working w/ Positive, Driven People who Love Life and together we are having a BLAST!!!

What did we do? The 3 ports were: Bahamas, St. Thomas & St. Maarten!  It was NON STOP Fun: Turbo Kick w/ Chalene Johnsons, Jet Skiing, Dancing everynight!, Private Cocktail Parties, Dressing up for Dinner was fun everyday, Massages, Facials, Shopping it never ended….

What I’ll never forget is the relationships we built together all while setting up our futures…Thank You Beachbody!!

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

Sample of my Daily Eating: Week 3

This is my 3rd week of the P90X/Insanity Hybrid Workout and WOW is it kicking my booty!!!  The first week I was sooo bloated from the diet changes….The second week I was sooo sore from the workouts….The third week I’m starting to feel my metabolism change because I feel hungry, which can be a bit difficult but I know its because my body is starting to burn it up!!  I haven’t lost any weight yet, but I see lots of definition in my upper body, my hips are slimming down and I’m starting to get into the routine of this…

Here is a sample of my Daily Eating Plan:

I’m following a Portion Style Eating Program which is 6 small meals a day, every 3-4 hours.  **You can either count calories or portions, I’ve done both and find this to be much easier FOR ME….similar to the Body for Life Eating Program.  Each “meal” consists of 1 serving of protein, carb, veggies and 2 cups of water!!  I am COOKING!!!  I never cook, I hate it!!  But I know I have to in order to fuel my body properly and to feel truly “satisfied”.  I plan my week in advance every Sunday by picking out my meals/recipies, going to the grocery store and writing everything down for the week to take out the guesswork.  Might sound like a lot of work, but honestly it does save time and money in the long run…

9:00am Workout – 2 cups water

11:00 Egg White Omelet w/ Tomatoes & 2/3 cup. hashbrowns – 2 cups water & Activit Vitamins

1:00pm Tropical Tuna Sandwich (Tuna, crushed pineapple, light miracle whip) 2 slices bread grilled – 2 cups water

4:00pm Chocolate Shakeology w/ Fiber Boost – 2 cups water

7:00pm Salmon – Sweet Potato (small) – Broccoli – 2 cups water!!

9:00pm 1/2 protein bar (or cottage cheese/fruit) – 2 cups water

11:00pm Banana Protein Pudding (1 scoop vanilla protein, 8 oz soy milk, 2 TBL Banana Pudding Mix, 1/2 sliced banana as topping) – 2 cups WATER!!

***So these aren’t the exact times of the day but at least every 3-4 hours I eat!! Lots of WATER and nothing else!  Lots of PROTEIN and 2 Shakes a day!!!

HOW TO Build a Full Time Income as a Fitness Instructor or Personal Trainer

Fitness Instructors & Personal Trainers are people who have chosen a career path that they have a GREAT PASSION for!!  But WHY does that mean that they have to earn less?   One of the questions I get asked all the time is….HOW can I make a Full Time Income as a Group Fitness Instructor/ Personal Trainer either by doing more or supplementing with another area of fitness?

Before I answer that, let me tell you a bit about my history…

Who am I: I’ve been a Group Fitness Instructor for 15 years, a Presenter for Chalene Johnson’s Company for 5 years – Powder Blue Productions – including Turbo Kick, PiYo & Hip Hop Hustle as well as a Continuing Education Provider for ACE & AFAA within those formats.  I’ve been a Club Manager for Women’s Fitness Clubs for over 10 years including many different positions: District Management, Group Fitness Director for 9 clubs & Fitness Director in charge of Personal Training.  I now have my own home based business: Online Marketing in the Fitness Industry.  I share this with you to let you in on my experience in many different areas of Fitness…

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Teaching Group Fitness Classes!!! As do ALL Instructors, we CHOOSE to Motivate everyone in our class to not only get a great workout but to teach them that Fitness can be FUN!!  It is the HIGHLIGHT of my day!!  And if my body could handle it, I probably would teach full-time…but not only is not good for my body to overtrain but its also not fair to my students to burn out on them & not deliver the BEST CLASS!  Instructors teach on average 5-10 classes a week and Personal Trainers are in demand at peak times of the day: mornings, evenings and weekends.  Both of these situations explain why it is a CHALLENGE to Build a Full Time Income as an Instructor or Personal Trainer.

In fact, most Instructors & PT’s work full time and do fitness on the side.  But so many of us STRIVE to be able to do our PASSION full time!!! So, is it possible?  What are the Options?

Let’s start with looking at what some of the different positions in Fitness and the Average Salaries…

Options to Make More Income in Fitness:

  • Learning to teach an additional format such as Pilates, Yoga, Turbo Kick, Hip Hop Hustle, PiYo, Strength, Zumba may bring your current hourly rate up (depending on the facility) or give you the opportunity to work more hours as an Instructor!
  • If you are a Group Fitness Instructor, you may consider studying for your Personal Training Certification (or vice versa) Personal Training allows you to work more hours and gives your body a physical break.
  • Club Managers and Owners traditionally make a good salary but they do work long hours due to the responsibility of the staff and team Goals. If you love leading a Team and are a Goal Oriented Individual, this may be of interest to you!
  • Most Fitness Directors teach or train in addition to their required hours to make an additional $5,000-$10,000/yr. to their salary.
  • Becoming a Presenter in your favorite format is another option to add additional income & share with others what you LOVE!!  Powder Blue Productions offers a Training called: All Star Presenter Camp to prepare you for becoming a Presenter or just a ROCK STAR Instructor!!

Another option is “Coaching” You may have heard of an Opportunity Beachbody, the Multi-Million Dollar Fitness Company, has created for individuals to become Reps for their products including P90X, Turbo Fire, Insanity & More!  This is an Online Marketing Business helping people Get Healthy & Fit by simply “recommending” their products and more importantly…building a Team!  It is an opportunity for anyone (not just fitness professionals) but honestly it’s what Instructors & Personal Trainers DO EVERYDAY ALREADY!!  It was a natural fit for me because I love to help & motivate people live a better life….and I could build it as BIG as I want!!!  Ultimately I always wanted to have my own BUSINESS but Financially it was Impossible….NOW I do have my own Business, Schedule my own hours and work for MYSELF all while making a full time income!!  I think its GREAT and the financial opportunities are INCREDIBLE!!  Not to mention you also receive 25% off all the products, SWEET!

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

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtU2m6ZbqvY]

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!
