Meet independent Beachbody Coach Lisa P. She participated in The Beachbody Challenge® and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 9th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have 3 children: ages 3,6 and 9. I worked 30 hrs a week and was always busy with work and kid duties. I always felt guilty spending time on myself. All of my clothes were tight on me and I just felt like a sloth.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
What inspired me to begin transforming, was seeing many members in my family be diagnosed with high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, etc. All of these diseases are mostly preventable! I also work in the medical field and determined that ‘I’ need to be the example for my patients and for my family. Why wait to feel your best? Prevent the preventable through hard work and dedication!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Sometimes motivation comes afterward. It was hard to get into a routine and many times I wanted to just say ‘this is too much work’! But…I heard the phrase once, “Make yourself do it even for just 5 minutes. If you want to quit after 5 minutes then stop. But most of the time you’ll keep going!” On those days I didn’t feel like putting an effort in…I told myself that. And guess what?! I kept going! I kept going and got myself in a routine…I started seeing results! I got motivated. I felt better! People started noticing! Then I thought to myself…I want to help others and be their support and encouragement they need to get healthy. So I joined Beachbody! I am so looking forward to this journey on working on the preventative side of health. That’s what healthcare should be, not ‘sick’care.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved yoga because it made me feel rejuvenated. Stretching your muscles makes me feel like my circulation as been restored. It’s amazing how much better your mood is also. PiYo is the best of both worlds. It stretches, it tones, it strengthens, it gets your heart rate up, it’s low impact but higher impact if you want to make it that way. There are modifications if you need them. I have fallen in love with it and would like to teach it someday!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I feel like my balance is better, my tone is better, my energy and mood is better! I am just so excited to share it with others!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I want to do more more more! It’s so important to incorporate nutrition along with exercise for all around health! Beachbody has it all! It’s a one stop shop!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
There is a ton of support with Beachbody! I did not realize this before I officially joined. I did so mostly for the discount with the idea of helping others eventually. There are challenge groups, support pages where you not only get help from your coach…but a ton of otheBeachbody coaches! I love it! I have already made so many new friends through this!
