Thank you so much for visiting my website! I’m excited you’re here and hope that you’ll find sensible solutions that will help you life a happy, healthy and fulfilling life!
A little about me…I’m a 40 something former corporate Human Resources Manager who was able to leave that career to become a stay at home mom when my first daughter was born! In 2008, our family suffered financial hardship when my husbands division was shut down leaving us without an income while at the same time the real estate market crashed and we watched our investment properties put us in the RED every month! We were forced to live off our credit cards! I wasn’t willing to go back to corporate America so I went ALL in with my fitness business and am now a successful entrepreneur who has a passion for helping others!
But how did I get here:? Throughout my adult life I’ve always struggled a bit with my weight. Over time, I tried many diet pills and other “quick fix” methods…but the one thing that really stuck was when I started exercising at home on a regular basis. While living in Dallas, I joined the local 24 Hour Fitness and was pretty good about getting to the gym. Being single at the time, it was a good way to get out and meet people. I literally lived 2 minutes away from the gym so it was super convenient. But then I moved to Plano, (a suburb of Dallas) and the gym was no longer convenient, plus I also began dating my future husband who didn’t have a gym membership.
After we’d been together a month or so, he approached me about ordering a workout program he had seen an infomercial for called “Power 90.” We both ordered a copy that very night…this was in March 2002. Once we got our programs we made the commitment to stick with it and not miss a day…and we did. He ended up losing over 40 lbs and I lost many inches and a few pounds…I was already close to my ideal weight. We submitted our stories and ended up winning a trip to Hawaii from Beachbody… we’re the first two on the list (Jason N and Tami H.) http://www.beachbody.com/product/success_stories/2002/2002_hawaii_trip.do
It was an amazing trip and I’ve been a loyal Beachbody customer ever since. After getting married and having 2 kids, I got back into doing my workouts at home and lost all my baby weight and have more muscle tone than I did when I did P90 in 2002. I own and have tried almost all of the Beachbody workouts – I would have to say that Tony Horton is my favorite trainer having done complete rounds Power 90, Power 90 Master Series and P90X to lose my baby weight.
In 2007, Beachbody began offering the coaching opportunity. I had just had baby #2 so I waited until last year to actually become a coach. Having been a stay at home mom since 2005, I was glad to finally find something where I could work from home and do something that I truly believed in.
Since that time, we’ve been able to get out of all the credit card debt, move into a house we love and we have a fast growing team of coaches we consider family.
