Shouldn’t we all want to wake up everyday and be the best version of ourselves?
Not trying to be like the fit chick at the gym, the bombshell beauty in the office, the wealthy neighbor, or the “perfect” girl who just seems to do no wrong.
If you want to improve YOU to feel better, become stronger ( physically, mentally, emotionally, cognitively) don’t let fear of change or growth hold you back. You never know what a positive ripple effect that one deduction can have on your life.
Years ago I did an at home beach body workout, then discovered another one called Insanity. Fell in love with it. Gained strength, changed my body. Took a chance on this “coaching opportunity” and it’s changed my life. I have gained confidence, friendships and relationships that bless my life daily. I have created a supplemental income that’s on its way to being full time.
With my increased confidence I faced a fear and got certified to TEACH insanity so I can physically share that passion with others. Since then I have 3 more certifications and met so many more amazing people who enrich my life and make me better.
Today is another blessing that would not have happened without a few steps into the unknown a couple years ago. I’m going to meet some of my coaches in person I’ve never met but consider these ladies some of my closest friends. And I get to workout with the man who helped change it all for me, Shaun T!
So I challenge you to face fear of change or mountainous obstacles head on because there just might be a beautiful rainbow on the other side.
OKAY maybe you clicked on this article to see what went down at the fitness event with Shaun T so here is my day. It was mind blowing. It was so full off emotions. MEETING one of my coaches on my team whom I feel is like a sister yet we have never physically met, seeing one of my dear coaches and friends whom I have not seen since we graduated undergrad in ’06…I know I am getting old, being surrounded by over 1000 people who came for one reason or another, but we can came to experience together.
Coaches, non coaches, fit people, non fit people, people who have lost 100lbs thanks to Shaun T and those who are just starting their 300lb journey. No judgement. All friendly smiles, high fives, and words of encouragement to keep going. Sweat was dripping, tears fell, bodies pumped, adrenaline rushed, moments shared and when it was over a collective HIGH was felt. You really have to be there, in that moment to feel it.
So lets kick off the photos with my girls and off to our left were some of the cast from the Insanity Max 30 crew
Me and my amazing coach Kristin meeting for the first time
Plus my awesome coach Jen….we were ready to get our sweat on
See that crew that is some of the cast from Insanity Max 30
LETS DO THIS
OKAY so first the hunky now married to Mrs Fit and Funky- Darren came out to get us all excited!
Then the intro video and the place went crazy
NOW we are super HYPED!
I think we were loud enough! Lets get ready to sweat!
One of my FAVE moves…SKI ABS
Lunges and Squats….get low and sculpt that bottom half
At the end of every workout SHAUN T does a reflection message….empowering and motivating to continue to push positivity and fitness
Then we had a young 28 year old girl called up on stage dealing with Breast Cancer and he motivated her to NEVER GIVE UP…CHILLS
Shaun T then did a live PODCAST Q & A with us and one of my coaches ,Jen Rogers got to share her story and her passion for teaching and share about her students. I am sooooo PROUD of her and HONORED to be on her journey and have her join my team and pay it forward!
So then JEN and I got in a group photo with SHAUN T
Then I got a photo with fellow insanity instructor Fit and Funky
I had A BLAST and cannot wait until July when we get to do it all again and even better with more workouts, fun, fitness trainers and celebrations with my team in Nashville!!!!!
