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

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

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

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

Before After
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?

Beachbody Challenges: Transforming Lives, One Woman at a Time!

14 Feb

Loving others includes loving yourself!

I don’t know about you, but I started the New Year off with a bang. Most people tend to get excited about taking on a new goal: weight loss, spending more time with family, reducing debt; it’s part of the spirit of a new season.

This January, I decided to start fitness challenge groups! What better way to get Beachbody workouts combined with group momentum and excitement to get healthy, than a good old-fashioned challenge?

Christina’s Beachbody Challenge Details

Who: Anyone who wanted to sign up!

What: A challenge to take back your life in 30 days! Exercise & Nutrition!

Where: Online accountability through Beachbody site and Facebook, checking-in and communicating daily!

When: Started January 2012

Why: There are lots of people on a Mission – being a coach allows me to encourage those missions on a deeper level. I’m so encouraged by each of these participants, it’s hard to choose just 3. I had to have you meet them! Here are some of their stories.

FEATURED PARTICIPANTS

Cheryl G. Beachbody Challenge

Cheryl G.

Hi! I’m Cheryl a 37 year old, stay at home mother to 3 kids (a 4-year-old and 6-year-old twins.) No C-sections for me! “I know Christina through a local mom’s group and our daughters are in Kindergarten together.”

Her Goal – Lose a few pounds and stay motivated to exercise consistently.

Biggest Struggle: “Exercising! My reason? It’s hard to find the time to do it.” I hear her on this! Being a mom can be demanding and fitting a workout into your schedule tends to take a back seat.

Favorite Beachbody Workout: I love Insanity! I like the quick pace and the variety of the workouts by Shaun T.

Mom Wisdom: “Schedule your workout! I do mine first thing in the morning, because I know as the day goes on, I probably will find some excuse not to do it.”

Join our team & get healthy!

Jocelyn C. Beachbody Challenge

Jocelyn C.

A 25 year old work-a-holic, who has 2 high stress jobs, works anywhere between 50-70 hours per week. Jocelyn has every excuse to be tired!  I met Jocelyn about 2 years ago when my sister Shell and Jocelyn graduated from the Oakland Police academy together.

Biggest Struggle: She refers to herself as being a picky eater who loves fruits and veggies, loves to exercise and goes to the gym. You might question WHY she’s in one of my challenge groups. While she eats well and exercises, her mid-section is admittedly her toughest area to keep in shape. Jocelyn tells me, “Oh boy, some days it just feels like a losing battle.”

Favorite Tools: “I love Chocolate Shakeology!! It has increased my energy levels 100%. I use to drink (2) cups of coffee before I left the house, 1 on my way into work, and have a few cups after getting there. By lunch, I’d switch to diet soda and would have 2 a day!” As her coach, I’m proud to say as of January 13 (her start date on Shakeology) she has stopped drinking pop and coffee. Go Jocelyn!

Words of Wisdom: Jocelyn says she is pushed by the group challenge to have accountability with others.  “This year is about being accountable to myself… It has never mattered to me. It’s always been how I feel inside and out when I look in the mirror.”

Be part of my accountability and success!

Kiersten M. Beachbody Challenge

Kiersten M.

Meet Kiersten! A 29 years old mother of 2 – and a double c-section survivor! She holds a full-time desk job where she sits a majority of her day.  I met Kiersten through her sister’s referral and am so excited she is on my challenge team!

Her Goal – Lose weight and gain some extra energy to keep up with her kids.

Biggest Struggle: Portion control and finding the time to exercise everyday!

Beachbody Favorite:  So far she rants about Shakeology and TurboFire! “I’m in LOVE!”

Inspiration for Others: “Set your goals and stop making excuses. Chose a work out that you enjoy that way you wont dread doing it everyday.”

We would love for you to join us – It’s FREE!

Christina Volk Beachbody Coach

MEET YOUR COACH - Christina Volk
