I am a mother of two and in November of 2015, I became a GRANDMOTHER! With an extensive background in musical theatre as a singer/dancer/choreographer, I also perform in and choreograph productions throughout South Florida. While, I got my start in the fitness industry over 25 years ago as a Step Aerobics, Dance and Aqua Fitness Instructor, I spent the better part of the last two decades in the corporate world. I was a slave to the 9 to 5 grind for so long it left me miserable, unfulfilled and so stressed I was sick ALL THE TIME. Until I found Beachbody!
Before Beachbody came into my life, I was very sickly. Always coming down with some kind of cold, flu, or infection. I was hospitalized multiple times a year for various ailments. I had debilitating pain from my c-section incision never healing properly. I was starting to experience arthritis, extreme bouts of insomnia, chronic fatigue, vertigo, fibromyalgia, all sorts of crap. Not to mention my allergies and asthma that I had been dealing with since I was a child. I was looking for something...ANYTHING...to help me. I wanted to get healthy and get back into the shape I was when I was a Fitness Instructor.
I started by purchasing Insanity and I was instantly HOOKED! I started seeing results pretty quickly but I knew I needed to do something about my nutritional health. I was so skeptical when I first heard about Shakeology. I believe my first words were, "Umm no thanks! I like to actually eat my meals and I'm not going to go drinking that Beachbody Kool-Aid!"
But I kept hearing all these wonderful things about it and how it could improve my health dramatically. So I did my research and found it to be the absolute best shake out there. I decided to give it a try. I figured, if I didn't benefit from it then I can just return it and get my money back. It wasn't till I was drinking it for about three solid weeks that I truly felt the benefits of it. I had gone out of town for the weekend and forgot to bring my Shakeology with me. By the time Monday rolled around, I felt like absolute crap! I couldn't figure out why and then it hit me. I hadn't drank Shakeology in 2 days!
When I went to the doctor, a few months later, for my annual physical, my doctor read the results of my blood work and told me that I was the healthiest she had ever seen me (I had been going to her for 15 years at that point). Over the course of the next several months my health just continued to improve.
Fast forward to today and I am healthier than ever! I rarely get sick, almost all of my health issues prior to starting Shakeology have completely disappeared. No more insomnia or joint pain. My incision pain is significantly more manageable. Vertigo is gone. Even my allergies and asthma have improved!
We are a family who have been drinking Shakeology for 4+ years and we're Shakeology drinkers for life! Shakeology is not a luxury to me, it's a necessity. And it seriously tastes awesome! But even if it tasted like garbage, I would drink it everyday because I know what it does for me.
There was a time when I would not have thought of investing in my health the way I do now. But hindsight is 20/20 and my only regret is not starting sooner! You can't put a price on your health. Because, I realized, if you are not willing to invest in being healthy, you better be willing to spend your money on being sick.
I went from being out of shape, fatigued and sickly, to getting into the best shape of my life and feeling better than I had EVER felt! My Beachbody journey reignited my love of fitness and sparked in me, the drive and passion to help others feel great about themselves too! I now hold multiple certifications as a Personal Trainer, Spinning® Instructor, Insanity® Instructor, PiYo® Instructor, Cize® Instructor, Group Fitness Instructor and Nutrition Coach.
