Team High Voltage Turns Two, My Story As a Beachbody Coach



Beachbody Coach

April 1st is a very special day to me. It marks my team turning TWO, aka my 2 year coach anniversary!! 

I became a virtual health and fitness coach while I was still in college. I had just dropped quite a bit of weight with Chalene Johnson's Turbo Jam and Turbo Fire. I majored in Feminist Studies and Literature, so I had no idea what direction to take after graduation. 

Transformation Tuesday


All I knew was how crazy different I felt compared to the year before. As a junior in college, I would binge eat, drink alone in my dorm room (#realtalk), my relationships were falling apart, and then my uncle passed away. It was heart breaking, out of nowhere, and everything seemed to spin out of control. 

It was also a huge wakeup call. I was harming my body, physically and mentally, and could not find a light at the end of the tunnel. 

My Team


When MY coach found me on Instagram, and simply commented on a picture motivating me (I was at my heaviest and started working out with my roommates in my senior year), it was like a switch flipped. I was in a MUCH better living environment, my classes got so much better, I was working out every single day, I started to cook and meal prep, and of course, worked on myself with personal growth. Never underestimate the value of a genuine compliment or motivational message. <3

Coach Lifestyle


I entered an online accountability group, and lost 40 pounds with my coach's support. From then on, I was hooked. I made the leap April 1st of 2014 to pay it forward and start coaching myself, and haven't looked back since!

Meeting my idol Chalene Johnson


These side by side pictures tell the story of a brand new coach on the left, who flew to Vegas alone to be at her first coach event. I couldn't even get close to the Chalene CUT OUT!  Fast forward two years, and I got to meet the woman who changed my life. But more so than that, I've met the most positive, motivating, genuine women who are some of my closest friends. 

Face to Face


This was all because I just STARTED. I was in a rut, and had to climb out on my own. Yes, my coach and my team provided so much support, but it was up to me as the #girlboss in charge of my life, to make the first step. 

I'm so incredibly grateful every single day that I did.  Now out of over 400k coaches, my team is in the top 300!!!!!

Anyone Can Do This


 I say this because it was not ME who got us there. I stepped up and made a decision, mentored, and lead by example, yes. BUT, without their insane efforts to show up every freakin day--that would not have happened. 

We just had our best month yet, and I'm just so overcome with emotion because I get to wake up every single day, work with insanely amazing go-getters, help them get fit, healthy, love themselves, and help others do the same. 

And I can't wait to see what 2016 brings. 

High Voltage, LOVE YOU TEAM!!
