I have been helping women since 2007 learn how to love their bodies, be active and how eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or bland!
Nine years ago had my first son and gained 80lbs with him. I struggled losing the weight but then I decided enough was enough and lost the weight.
I then decided to become a personal trainer to help other new moms. I trained clients at parks, in their homes and opened the 2nd boot camp in orleans (at the time there was only one other one!) with my dad. I was in amazing shape and I helped a lot of people! I then found out I was pregnant and then at 19 weeks found out we were having twins! I continued to train my clients and workout. I ate sensibly but wanted to make sure my babies were a good weight when they were born and I gained 65lbs. I had to stop training clients at 28 weeks and the most I could was walk to the mailbox. After I had them I started exercising as soon as I could!
When my twins were 6 months old I was in a bad car accident and my left ankle was crushed. They operated on it and I had to get 12 screws and 2 plates put in and my dr told me it was likely I would never run again. This broke my heart. I became very depressed and felt sorry for myself. I was at home with 2 babies and 4 year old and couldn’t even do the simplest tasks. I then stopped feeling sorry for myself and started to lift weights in my wheel chair and become as mobile as possible.
A year after my accident I was able to run and started teaching a boot camp. I was also working full time but then going back out at night after being gone all day was too hard on my family. I had looked at other network marketing company’s but just couldn’t join them bc of how they were encouraging people to lose weight and get healthy. I did a lot of research about beachbody and knew that because they encouraged eating well and exercise to reach your goals – this was the company for me!
On Oct 1, 2012 Canadians were allowed to sign up as coaches with Beachbody. I was one of the first coaches in Canada to sign up and I have never regretted my decision since. I signed up with Beachbody because they believe in eating well and exercise to reach your goals. I’m a firm believer in having balance in your life being able to indulge on occasion but also nourishing your body with good wholesome foods and exercises so you can live an amazing life.
Being a coach is allowing me to continue my passion for helping others on my time and when it’s convenient for me. I don’t have to be away from my family and I earn a very good part time income.
