So, let’s finally talk about this.
Why do I do it? Why did I join @beachbody ? Well, after gaining almost 40 lbs, being completely unhappy with myself and on the verge of depression... I tried a lot of things. I tried diets, I tried pills, I tried YouTube workouts, I tried the gym, I tried classes, I tried weight watchers, I tried counting calories and ultimately NOTHING worked for me. After watching @mstanton82 on her Beachbody journey for years, seeing her highs, lows, and raw honesty about her success, I finally reached out to her. ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH. I couldn’t live the way I was anymore. So, I signed up.
Why does it work for me? It works for me because I’m surrounded and supported by others in this #fitfam community that comes with it. Not only do I get to workout from the comfort of my home, on my schedule, I get to choose from over 50 programs [& counting] which are led by super trainers that teach you exactly what to do, how to do it and why. On top of that, each program comes with a nutrition guide which helps me portion size my food, and get in the correct amount of food each day [protein, veggies, fruits, etc.] AND IM NOT DIETING. I’m not cutting out foods I love. It’s a process that teaches you to be the healthiest version of yourself. That food is fuel. That you can do whatever you set your mind too. After trying so many things that didn’t work for me, this finally did. This business, these programs, the support, the guidance, this is the only thing that has worked for me. I’m a lifer.
Why did I become a coach? I’ll be honest, I initially signed up to be a “discount coach” which means that I signed up so I could get discounts on shakeology/products, clothes, access to new programs before everyone else, etc. I never thought of myself as being an actual coach. That’s a lie. I thought about it. I didn’t think I could be one. I didn’t think I’d be good enough. I started posting about my journey, and I’d get people commenting and messaging me about how I’ve inspired them & how I’ve motivated them. That’s why. That’s why I became a coach. If my journey can help ONE person. In any way. My life is better for it. My life is better because of you. - 3 hours ago
