My WHY has changed as a Health and Fitness Coach?. So many people ask me why I would want to start my own health and fitness business. I have a good education and work a successful job at a fortune 10 company. I started this business because I have a passion for helping others. That was my big why.
I had struggled with being overweight my entire life. I graduated high school at 5’4” and 200 lbs. I tried everything, crash diets, pills, wraps, you name it. I would take some weight off and then it would come back plus some. I was a binge eater and totally would eat my feelings.
When I found beachbody and was able to keep the weight off with HEALTHY eating (not just fat free/sugar free crap) and exercise. I was like ‘duh, the old fashioned way really does work!’. I just wanted to help others feel and look as good I did.
But I have come to realize since my accident, that being fit and healthy and SO much more than skinny jeans. I was hit by a car while I was crossing a cross walk and nearly died. I truly believe that my body COULD NOT have sustained the trauma if I was not fit. And if it did, I would not have had the miracle recovery I did. I am truly a walking miracle.
I still want to help people look and feel great BUT I want to help people live LONG lives. I am not saying you guys are all going to go and get hit by a car BUT there are so many ways that good health and extend your life. I want to help you take care of YOU first.
