I’ve been getting asked the question why a lot lately (why did you quit CrossFit, why are you doing Beachbody programs, why did you become a coach) so I wanted to share a little bit about my why…..
My main reason for why is that what I was doing just wasn’t working for me anymore. I wasn’t getting the physical results I was wanted doing in CrossFit anymore. Now I’m not saying that CrossFit is bad, or it won’t work for you, or that you shouldn’t do it. I’m just saying it wasn’t working for me. Honestly CrossFit did some amazing things for me. It helped me with confidence in my physical abilities. I never thought my body would be capable of running a 1/2 marathon, or doing pullups, do a tough mudder, back squatting over 200#s or even climb a rope and CrossFit showed me that I am capable of doing all of those things. I also have made life long friends because of the relationships I’ve made through the CrossFit community. CrossFit has been a wonderful an d beautiful part of my life.
However, after five years of doing CrossFit I had come to a place where I wasn’t getting the results in my body that I wanted. I don’t know if doing the same types of workouts for 5 years led to this or that I’m just getting older and my body is changing. Regardless I had hit a wall and wasn’t happy. So when a good friend of mine asked me to join her challenge doing the 21 day fix I figured what’s the risk???? I thought, worst case scenario I hate it and go back to CrossFit in three weeks……. why not give it a shot. I jumped in and tried the 21 day fix and saw a transformation in my body and the transformation was a start in the direction I was trying to go with my goals, which made me want more.
Being that I was so excited about my own results, I wanted to share with others what I had experienced because I thought maybe there are other people experiencing the same plateaus and frustrations that I was feeling and needed a change.
Another thing that being a Beachbody coach has done for me is allowing me to own my own business. I have a graduate level business degree and have always dreamed about owning my own business but I have been too afraid to jump in and start something. Being a coach has allowed me to use my business school skills and run my business the way I want with minimal costs to maintain and start. So now I’m fulfilling my dream with something I’m truly passionate about. I am so thankful that I’ve had this opportunity.
Through all this I’ve found that it gives me great joy and happiness to help others get on track to meet their own goals, which is why I have become a coach. I know have the ability to run my own business of helping people and it brings a passion and happiness to my life that is truly wonderful.
So that is my story of why……
