I am a 41-year-old woman and proud mama to a 8-year-old son and a 5-year-old son. I live in Northern Michigan and work full-time in the Human Resources field.· I used to be somewhat of an athlete and competed in a triathlon as well as a mountain bike marathon before children. As the years went by and the pregnancies came I saw my body slowly morph into something I wanted to change for the better. I found myself looking in the mirror and through sleep crusted eyes thought, "Who is that tired frumpy woman and where in the heck did I go?" I knew right then that I needed to commit to my fitness immediately but was perplexed as to how to take that first step.
With young children at home, going to the gym quickly became quite a· burden. I didn't want to take time from my family to travel to a gym, workout, shower, then return home. I needed a solution that worked for me and would be tailored to me--not the other way around. Most of all, I needed RESULTS and a strong return on my investment. After all, I think one thing we all hold in high regard is our time. If I'm going to take time away from the rest of my life I want it to be worth it. I researched many at-home fitness programs with minimal results. My frustration (and my waistline) grew. One night I saw an infomercial and found Beachbody and haven't been to a gym since. I now workout in the comfort of my own home and my children even join me from time-to-time. I love the changes that my body is making! I even competed in the M-22 Challenge (another triathlon which included a sand dune climb followed by a 3 mile run, an 18 mile road bike ride, and a 1 mile kayak paddle), a few other triathlons, and a half marathon.
I'm excited to continue to make some awesome changes in my mind, my health, and my body. I also love the additional income that being a Beachbody Coach provides! The business is so simple and doesn't take away from my already busy calendar. I love the products, the company, and the people.
