This Sunday Dinner portion is a little different than most! Over the next few weeks, my Sunday Dinner posts will be taken over by my team members from my fitness team, Team Arise! Including my own coach!
I am so excited to about this new step! I am also so happy to know these ladies! Once thing I love about my new job, is meeting so many new friends and connecting with them! Everyone is so positive and supportive, and we all have common goals! It’s so great to be friends with so many amazing people you can lean on, laugh with, support, and workout with!
For those of you who don’t know, I made a big lifestyle change back in January, to better my health and eating habits! I am currently a BeachBody coach, fit and healthy, have my eating under control, and I am building my own team, and business and I absolutely love it all!
I am happy to announce my first coach and teammate, Hayley! Hayley and I started around the same time! She a sweet person and friend!

When did you start coaching and why?
I began coaching in February of this year (2015). I began as a discount coach drinking Shakeology and doing Insanity: Max 30. I loved the way I felt after every workout and knowing that I had people in my challenge group encouraging me helped out so much! I often times didn’t have a chance to complete my workouts until late in the evenings after work….sometimes even as late as 10PM! However, I didn’t want to be “that” girl in the group that didn’t do her workout so I made sure to get it done!
What has been the hardest thing about coaching? The easiest?
I would have to say that the hardest part about coaching is getting out of my comfort zone. I’ve always had a Facebook, but never really posted much. However, I soon realized that if I wanted to be a successful coach I had to do things I had never done before which meant posting consistently and starting conversations up with friends that I had not talked to in many years. The easiest part about coaching is motivating others. I’ve been an athlete my entire life while playing volleyball and I am currently a volleyball coach. Encouraging and motivating others is something that I find so much happiness in! Knowing that I can be the one to help someone change their life is a big deal to me!
What advice would you give to new coaches or someone just starting their fitness journey?
Advice that I would give to anyone is to “See Yourself A Year From Now”…whether that is a successful BB coach or someone that wants to lose 20-30 lbs, they both require much HARD WORK and DEDICATION!! Nothing is going to come easy, but don’t get frustrated right away. Everything takes time and if you stick with it, it’ll all be worth it!
Favorite BeachBody Program and Shakeology Flavor?
I would have to say that my favorite Beachbody Program is the 21 Day Fix Extreme! Everything about it is wonderful! My favorite flavor of Shakeology would definitely have to be Chocolate! I am a chocoholic so I love being able to drink chocolate in the morning for breakfast!
