Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After having two children and battling several highly impactful health problems (plus what came with turning 40), I was in the worst shape of my life! I was feeling lousy in body, mind, and spirit. I was tired, moody, and uninspired. I was coming off of three years of very poor health caused by a hereditary auto-immune arthritic disease (which is still a daily struggle), heart surgery a year ago, chronic Iritis (a very painful eye condition), and fibromyalgia.* The culmination of which produced a sedentary lifestyle, very low energy, and weight gain. I had to buy bigger clothes to be comfortable. I felt awful in every sense of the word!

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My little boys. Period. They are five and seven and full of energy …as little boys are! I felt like I wasn’t being the “mom” I could be to them. Every day when they were home from school, I would have to have to leave them sitting watching a movie while I had my nap. They had long since grown out of taking naps, but still our lives revolved around getting home in time so I could nap! This was no way to raise my children and I felt so guilty, but there was nothing I could do. I had to nap to survive …or so it seemed at the time. Our family life was suffering and I felt my family deserved more from me.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I’m a very positive person by nature, but at this stage, motivation was my greatest challenge. I’ve always been old school. I had a gym membership that was obviously not being used. When I did manage to go to the gym, I did the same old cardio and weight routine which I was doing back in high school. I was bored and my body wasn’t responding anymore, which made it even harder to drag myself back to the gym. Being able to work out at home was key and a game changer. It felt like Tony, Autumn, and Sagi were my friends and we were in this thing together! Beachbody programs (P90X3 and then Hammer & Chisel) have changed my life and helped my family life. It’s been an incredible journey of discovering what my body is once again capable of. And this is only the beginning for the new me and my family. I’m now on a mission to increase my fitness and heath, while continuing to inspire and help others achieve their goals.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved being able to work out at home. I love the variety that the programs provided. I never got bored!


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
At 43, I’m in the best shape of my life. Hands down. I am a former Hawaiian Tropic Swimsuit model, Nair Best Legs in America runner up, and competitive athlete (in my younger years), but I’ve never looked like this. I now have the body I’ve always dreamed of, and energy for days! It feels so good. Who ever said life was over at 40? I’m just getting going!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I’m back! “It’s never too late for a comeback!” That’s my new favorite quote, because I lived it. I was down and out and I came back! And now I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m a Beachbody Coach, and now I’m helping others change their lives! It’s the best job and best feeling in the world.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
With P90X3 I wasn’t in a Challenge Group, but for Hammer & Chisel I was, so I really saw the difference between having that support and not having that support. For Hammer & Chisel, it was great to have the accountability and to hear how everyone else’s workout were going. We could chat about diet, tough days, support each other when the going was tough, etc. It was nice to feel a part of a community.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Aubrey came into my life when I signed up as a Coach near the end of my P90X3 program. She is always super supportive of me. She has encouraged me every step of the way! I love her.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology has made a huge difference in my overall health and energy levels! My energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion and regularity have done a 180! This is no exaggeration. I used the entire Beachbody Performance line. I love it and tell everyone of my new customers and fellow Coaches about it (because so many don’t use it). Energize, Recover, and Recharge are my favorites. At 43, I find I have to work that much harder to build muscle and tone.
