A DIAMOND BEACHBODY COACH DINNER INVITATION

12 Jun

Last weekend, I got to spend a wonderful evening with some amazing ladies who are my core fitness support system. Even a fitness coach needs a group! This was a wonderful evening spent with wonderful people. There is always one person that stands out when we get together as a group. She inspires me as a woman and a fitness coach. That person is Jenelle Summers.

Jenelle (top row, second from the right) is my business mentor and my Beachboady coach. She’s also the sister of fitness celebrity Chalene Johnson (Chalene Extreme, Turbo Jam, TurboFire). If you’ve done any of her videos, you’re bound to have seen her. She kicks butt in those classes. Once a year, as a special treat, Jenelle invites her coaches who are ranked Diamond and above, to celebrate what we have achieved in our business’, with a fabulous evening out on the town. This year was just that…FABULOUS!

Jenelle Summers - Diamond Coaches Team Dinner

Before I launch into how wonderful Beachbody is and the fact that I’m a WAHM (Work at Home Mom), let me first say that it’s changed my life personally. I’ve used the products, I’ve gotten the results from hard work, and I’m committed to women getting fit and healthy.

I love the fact that I can stay home with my kids, while promoting a healthy lifestyle and running a business supporting that mission. Many people say this on their blogs, in fact, how am I different than any other coach? Questions that might run through your mind when you stumble across my blog are, “Aren’t you out to just sell me a “shake-in-a-bag” or get me signed up as a coach?” Yes. I wouldn’t be being honest if I didn’t say I’d hope you’d choose me to be your coach and try Shakeology (“shake-in-a-bag.”) But… this isn’t the reason I love my job.

I love my job as a fitness coach because it changes people’s lives! I love helping people get fit and healthy!

Yogurt Stop! Diamond Coaches Dinner

Our evening started with a limo bus ride to Yogurt Vi, a very delicious yogurt bar. Girls gotta eat! We then ran down to Lady Foot Locker (not literally, it was a non-workout get together) for some shoe shopping. We’re fitness people; we get excited over a great pair of shoes! After our shopping spree, we arrived at Dick’s Sporting Goods where we were gifted with exercise apparel!

Japanese Steak House Diamond Coaches DinnerLast stop: Dinner. We indulged at Nagoya Japanese Steak House. YUM!!! It was a great night of food and fun, but more than anything, it was a great night with friends; friends that encourage and support me to be a better, happier, healthier person. I dream of the day I can take my Diamond Team to dinner! Not for the money, but for the camaraderie and support of other women just like me. We’re changing lives, one workout at a time!

Thanks for a great night ladies!

Insanity, Turbofire, Slim in 6, Brazil Butt Lift – Before and After Results!

30 Apr

I’m constantly amazed at how fabulous all of my challenge group participants are. They never cease to go above and beyond. Not only did they push themselves by ‘Pressing Play’ everyday, but they supported the other team members in their groups and some of them even became coaches! I’m a one proud Beachbody Coach right now!

So, without further adieu, I’d like to announce four of my Challenge Group Graduates for 2012!

Kiersten Mickla – Program: Turbofire

Kiersten Mickla - Before Kiersten Mickla - After
Before After
Chest 45.5 42
Waist 47.5 41
Hips 49.5 43.5
Arms 15 13.5
Weight 219 185

Doing this challenge has giving me the willpower to succeed. Knowing that the other group members are working hard to obtain their goals pushes me to go as hard as they do. I have gained so much knowledge about nutrition and fitness and it is something that I find myself sharing with others everyday. I will continue to work hard to reach my goal even after the challenge is over.

Jocelyn Cumo – Program: Brazil Butt Lift

Jocelyn Cumo - Before Front Jocelyn Cumo - Before Side

Chest 37 35
Waist 32 30
Hips 40 35

I have always had this goal in the back of my head (but its pretty much always stayed there). What body type I want to be, how I want to look. This has been my first time saying I want something and sticking to it. Not only have I lost weight & inches, I gained so much wonderful muscle tone and strength.

Anyone can say they are going to go home and press play on their TV and get there workout done, but can’t you always find something else to distract you from accomplishing that goal, the group made me want to be accountable, made me want to do that work and post it. I did not want to let them down as much as I did not want to let myself down.

Cori Oliver – Program: Insanity + 2nd month Marathon Training

Before After
Waist 28 27
Hips 38 36.5
Thighs 20.25 20
Weight 139.6 129.2

In April 2011 I had my 3rd baby by c-section. Shortly after childbirth and weighing the most I have ever in my life at 172 lbs in a size XL, I was able to loose all my baby weight on my own between my post-partum checkup on June 1,2011 and Thanksgiving. I did this the only way I knew how, consistant cardiovascular exercise and moderate dieting. On Thanksgiving Day 2011 I finally got in my size 8 jean and weighed around 145 lbs.

I wanted more…not necessarily a huge weight loss number, but I wanted to flatten my beat up abdominal muscles. My challenge started January 2012. At first I had no idea of which workout video to claim as my own because I had never done a workout video in my life! Exercise to me was all cardio, and there was nothing else, period. It took me a few weeks, a little trial and error, before I finally settled with INSANITY. Although it was difficult, it was easy to follow, and I found myself sweating like never before. I have finished my 60 days of INSANITY and now have good defination in my abdominal muscles. I have also gained noticeable back muscle defination.

My jean size shrank from a size 8 to a size 4 and I can honestly say now I buy smalls instead of extra large:)

Beachbody, and my personal coach, Christina Massey Volk, have taught me there is more to exercise than cardio! Despite the fact I still consider myself primarily a runner, I will continue to use beachbody videos to crosstrain and to hopefully one day turn my new “four pack” post c-section abs to a full “6 pack” post c-section abs! I will also continue to drink Shakeology daily, because I honestly believe it has been a contributing factor to my success…not to mention it tastes good and is super good for you! Why would I give that up?

Cheryl Gorski – Program: Slim in 6 + Insanity

Cheryl Gorski - Slim in 6 + Insanity

Waist 32 28
Hips 38 35
Chest 36 33
Weight 128 118

I really wanted to do Insanity, but didn’t feel I was fit enough to dive right into it, so I did Slim in 6, worked out on my elliptical trainer, and about once a week did an Insanity workout. The next month I plunged into Insanity and I haven’t looked back! I lost 10 pounds, 4 inches off my waist, 3 inches off my chest and 3 inches off my hips. I also went from wearing a tight size 10 to a loose size 6! I’ve got more energy and I feel and look stronger. As the mother of 3 small children, it hasn’t always been easy finding time for my workouts and eating right, but the payoff has been so worth it! I saw some friends tonight that I had not seen in several months and they gave me so many compliments on my new look. One of them is even interested in trying Shakeology! This is only the start of my fitness journey and I couldn’t be happier!

 

I’m SO proud of my challenge graduates you see here as well as the others that aren’t highlighted. I couldn’t have asked for a more willing group of participants. They stuck with it and are now reaping the benefits and seeing fabulous results. While they aren’t finished (none of us are!) they now know what needs to happen to maintain their healthy lifestyles. Are you ready for a challenge?
