I always looked at my interest in fitness as a hobby- never something I could focus on as a career. After our children were born, I stayed at home with kids and like most stay at home moms…I started to focus on my children and work off the baby weight. I looked into workouts I could do at home to make it easy for me to watch the kids and also squeeze in some “me time”. I had a natural interest in fitness and although I was not at my goal by any means, I was having a blast learning new moves and trying new things.
When the opportunity to coach came up I thought- Immediately, I can’t do that….I’m not an expert, I’m not at my ideal weight, I don’t know how to take care of my nutrition, etc. The lists of Cant’s seemed endless. But the more and more I thought of it, the more and more I turned those CAN’Ts into CANs. I CAN get to my ideal weight. I CAN learn how to take care of my nutrition, I CAN help others, etc. I finally said- WHY NOT? What do I have to lose? I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I started January 2016 and this experience has changed my life. I have more confidence than I ever had before, I’m in the best shape of my life, I’m happy and eager to start each day- meet people and help them reach their goals. There’s something so rewarding when someone you don’t know messages you and says how much you inspire them, how much they look forward to seeing your posts. This business is all about helping, uplifting and encouraging each other and I think we all need that in our lives from time to time.
