I don’t talk very often about my Beachbody involvement. Maybe I should? It has changed my life!
I became involved in Beachbody in February. My daughter was a coach and she was holding a 21 Day Fix Challenge group. I knew I had weight to loose and figured I could do anything for 21 days!
You may wonder what the 21 Day Fix is all about. It is not another diet, it’s about eating just the right portions, and following a simple 30-minute workout each day and enjoying a nutritious shake each day.
The simple eating plan takes you step by step through the process and makes portion control so easy you won’t even have to think about it. Instead you can just enjoy delicious, healthy food without counting points or calories! The simplicity of this program equals success. I started seeing results immediately!
The exercises vary each day and include total body cardio, upper body, lower body, Pilates and Yoga. In the four months I have been following this program I have lost over 20 pounds and a total of 19 inches! My clothes are now too big and I feel so much stronger and have so much more energy!
The best part of the workout is the accountability with the Challenge Groups. A Beachbody Challenge Group is a small group of like minded individuals all working TOGETHER to help each other achieve their fitness goals! We all need a push now and then and a little motivation goes a long way. By having a personal Team Beachbody coach and the support of fellow challengers you are going to get the best results from the program. These small groups are on Facebook under a private setting so only your fellow group members see what you are posting. You make the commitment to check in each day even if it is only to say you got the workout done. Over the course of the three weeks the encouragement you get from the other group members will help you finish strong and see results!
I’m so excited about the results I want to share the program with everyone! I really thought I had come to a time of my life where I was getting older and not exercising as much and the extra weight was just part of life. However it is never to late to change your habits and improve your life style. All you have to do is commit! The workouts have challenged me. In the beginning I would modify the exercises, there is a woman in the DVD who modifies all the workouts. I would follow her. Over time I have now been able to do the workouts without any problem. I’m still working on my pushups but it will come!
My husband, who has never exercised a day in his life has now joined me in my workouts. How exciting it is to see the transformation in his life! I now have a faithful workout buddy and we have such fun working out together.
I have now become a Beachbody coach in the hopes of encouraging others to take a step and change their lives!
