Backstage Pass into Beachbody Coaching– Feb. 23-27!

Add subtitle text-2

Curious about this coaching thing?  Well, good news!  Next week my team is hosting a sneak peek, behind the scenes look at what being a coach is all about!  No commitment, no obligations, just a fun, informative ‘backstage pass’.

Learn about common misconceptions and get answers to:

– How do you make $$$?

–  What if I’m not at my goal weight?

–  What if I’m an introvert and don’t have a large network?

–  I don’t want to SELL anybody anything!

–  How much time does it take?

If this is something you’re considering, before you go any further, read this article from 2013’s top coach, Lindsay Matway.  She sums up my words perfectly!


Here are 5 things you need to know before making the BEST decision for YOUR life!

#1 – Coaching is NOT a “Get Rich Quick Scheme”

If your number one priority is making bukoo bucks… You might as well save your $39.95 (sign up cost) and keep looking for the right opportunity for you… Because coaching will be a big fat waste of your time… NOT because you cannot end up making BIG MONEY… because you DEFINITELY CAN… but because in THIS business, the only people who make money are the ones who actually care to make a difference and help people change the course of their lives! Your income will ALWAYS be a direct reflection of the number of lives you help change!


You’ve probably wondered, what the heck do you actually DO as a coach, just SELL stuff? Absolutely not! It’s SO much more than that! As coaches we are BEACONS of light. (okay, slightly dramatic… but it’s TRUE!!!) We use our life, and the way we live it, to inspire and encourage others. What happens when you see a friend that you haven’t seen in a few months… and they have lost 20lbs, are beaming with energy and a whole new outlook on life? Well, I know what I DO… I ask them, “What the heck have you been doing girl!? You look INCREDIBLE!!! I want your secret!” — That’s the best way I can explain the basis of coaching. YOU are that person who, in this story, committed to changing their lives for the better… and thus EVERYONE around you wants to know YOUR SECRET. Mine, well, it’s BEACHBODY! P90X first changed my life after having my daughter London… then came Shakeology that literally was a health GAME CHANGER for me and has helped me to avoid being sick for coming on 3 years!!! and NOW, COACHING… which has taken me from a BANKRUPT BARTENDER with zero business experience… to a Top ranking Business owner making well over six figures a year… in just TWO YEARS mind you! WHY? Because I focused on changing ME first… Then shared my “secrets” with others who followed suit!

#3 – Coaches are Independent Business Owners.

When you become a coach you don’t the work for BEACHBODY… You work for YOURSELF! No one gives you deadlines, tells you how much you have to work, when you have to work, WHERE you have to work, nor do they decide your salary… YOU DO! And yea, I KNOW… SOUNDS INCREDIBLE, right? *and it IS*… IF you are willing to learn to manage your time effectively, stay consistent, be self-motivated and most of all, self-disciplined. MOST of us have never worked for ourselves… We have had all of our tasks and responsibilities laid out for us, a BOSS to hold us accountable and scare us from losing our job if we didn’t stay on point, a pre-determined salary or hourly rate GUARANTEED to us (even if it wasn’t great… we at least knew exactly what we would make.) and business hours (good ole 9-5!). The BEST comparison I can give you to describe the difference between working for someone else and working for yourself is the difference between HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE. Everyone HAS to go to High School… there is set rules, schedules, learning materials, teachers, subjects, tests, etc… But college… College is for the ELITE, the ones who want MORE out of life! The ones who are willing to take responsibility and make something of themselves. No one calls your mom when you skip class… tells you what to wear, which major to pick, nor which class times you will choose. If you drop out… Well, that’s on YOU. Owning your own business is the SAME WAY… So are you ready to Graduate to the BIG LEAGUES?


Your success as a coach is directly linked to how CONNECTED others feel to you. So many times when I talk to people who are trying to decide whether or not they are going to become a coach… They mention “not being at their goal body yet”  as one of their reasons they doubt they would succeed. TRUTH IS… People don’t connect to PERFECTION… They connect to your STORY. The struggles you overcome on your JOURNEY… and the honesty and openness you are willing to share with them. THOSE are the things that inspire them to change! You want them to think, “Well, if SHE can…. So can I!”… NOT “Well, she is perfect… so, of course she succeeded!” Until I opened up and shared my story of losing myself after pregnancy… and having to file bankruptcy after acquiring $400,000 in medical debt…. Only THEN did they start to see I was human, just like THEM… with struggles, hold backs and experiences that I could have let hold me down. Question is: Are you willing to let down your guard and share?


ALL successful coaches have ONE THING in common… They started with BIG DREAMS that fueled their fire to succeed! You have to have a CLEAR vision for YOUR LIFE and know what you are working for! Just like college… You go through the learning process (not making money) all the while KNOWING it will be WORTH IT in the end when you graduate and land the career of your dreams. Only difference here is that college could put you THOUSANDS of dollars in DEBT with no guarantee of a job… when in Beachbody you can actually MAKE MONEY while learning the ins and outs of your trade. IMAGINE if you spent FOUR FOCUSED YEARS, the way people do in college, on BEACHBODY!!! You would likely be earning more than most DOCTORS by the time you “graduated” with no debt to speak of! My point is… You have to know where you want to go… and more importantly WHY! The more defined your WHY… the HIGHER you FLY!

I hope this gave you a better idea of whether or not coaching is right for you and your goals, it is truly not meant for everyone… but when it lands in the lap of the person described above… MAGIC HAPPENS and DREAMS COME TRUE!

When and If you are ready to take the next step… I would love to lock arms with you and be your Coaching “professor” of sorts to show you why I love this business so very much and why I think you just may too! When you become a coach on my team… Your dreams become MY dreams… and THIS dreamer is most certainly a DOER!

Painkillers, Antidepressants and Vodka Tonics…In that order

That was my daily reality just 2 years ago.  I’m getting raw and more vulnerable than I want to, but I KNOW there are others who are where I was that can hopefully benefit from this.
Last week I hurt my back and ended up with a pinched nerve.  I’ve been taking a painkiller just to bring the pain down from a 9 to a functional 5.  I really didn’t want to have to use them.  Taking these painkillers for the past couple days really got me thinking about where my life was back then.  And looking back, I didn’t think much of it at the time.  It was just how I functioned.  Now, don’t get me wrong;  I wasn’t a closet junkie or alcoholic.  Just a stressed out mom with debilitating back pain who liked to have a drink or two (sometimes 3) at night to relax.  I went to work, I fed my kids, I paid the bills, I did the minimum to get by.  I was a ‘mombie’.  On autopilot.  Stagnant.  I was medicated.  To feel better.
In Dec. 2012, a funny thing happened.  I got pregnant with Max, baby #4, and had to quit all that, COLD TURKEY.  The thought and smell of coffee made me sick, too, so here I was, withdrawing from caffeine, alcohol, painkillers and antidepressants all at once.  Recipe for disaster, right?
Well, guess what…
I was on cloud 9.
Besides the typical first trimester lethargy and fatigue, it was as if pregnancy cured all my issues.  My back pain all but disappeared.  I wasn’t waking up in a fog from having drank the night before.  I don’t know if it was the pregnancy hormones or my giddy anticipation of new life inside me, but my outlook on life was definitely looking up.
At 8 months pregnant, I found myself sitting on the couch, looking eye to eye with my husband, having a serious conversation about finances.  With baby #4 on the way, I knew I wasn’t going to be returning to work at our studio in the same capacity (if at all).  I had to do something to replace that income.  It was then that I decided I would add ‘Beachbody Coach’ to my resume.  I had built my career in the fitness industry over the past 15 year and wasn’t ready to let that go.  This was a way that I could hold onto my passion and continue to work from home, on my own terms.
Being a coach meant that I would get started on a fitness program right away post-partum.  I would have to stay accountable to my own fitness and nutrition in order to be the best possible role model to my clients.
It meant that I would receive a discount on all my favorite products and programs.
It meant that I could qualify to receive cool prizes and trips.

None of that stuff turned out to be the biggest part of what being a coach has meant to my life.

When I started coaching at 8 months pregnant, I had no idea how the trajectory of my life would change.  I thought I might make a little money and help a few people.
You see, I’ve had 4 babies, and I’ve had 4 bouts of postpartum depression.  I have no reason to believe that my pregnancy with Max would’ve been any different.
I think I’m lazy by nature.  Really.  I don’t like (or didn’t like) structure, rules, discipline.
But I loved the idea of being my own boss.  Calling the shots.  Determining my own future.  So I went for it.
I sit here today, 18 months later, giving full credit to Beachbody as a company and my team, Team Rockstar Fit with changing my life.  That’s right—changing my life.  I don’t say that lightly.  If you’ve had kids, you understand how lonely those first few weeks and months after childbirth can be.  We live in our pajamas, covered in spit up, sleep deprived, no recollection of our last shower, carrying the pregnancy weight, isolated from the outside world;  and if you have other kids, you’re trying to keep them alive, too!  I so very easily could’ve slipped back into my depression.  Instead, the weeks and months after Max was born, I fully immersed myself in the culture of Beachbody, jumped 100% into the trainings, mentorship, masterminds, and leadership available to me.
One of Beachbody’s ‘3 Vital Behaviors’ is personal development.  It is instilled in us that by becoming better people ourselves, we are better able to help others.  And helping others is the name of the game in this business!  I picked up a book that for once in my life wasn’t to escape from my reality, but to embrace it, improve it and better myself and future.  I latched onto people who have so much more education, knowledge, and experience than me who wanted to teach me everything they knew.  People who had paid big bucks to attend workshops, conventions and belong to mastermind groups just to bring that knowledge back to us.  I made hundreds of new friends across the country;  moms just like me who were working to stay home with their kids, who wanted to help lessen the financial burden on their husbands.  I enrolled in FREE trainings worth tens of thousands of dollars that my mentors designed to not just help coaches grow their Beachbody business, but design a LIFE they loved.  Lessons in leadership, time management, self discipline, failing, courage, shutting the door on the past.   Not ONE lesson in SALES or closing a deal.  I’ve learned more about love and acceptance and compassion and service, and all of that happens to translate into growing a thriving business. My newsfeed is now filled with positivity, support, encouragement and excitement about life.  I am my own boss, but never alone.
But most importantly, I have learned that it all starts with ME.  My outlook.  My philosophy.  I’ll relate it to a gardening metaphor (since I’m researching growing my first garden this spring).  If you start with crummy soil, you will have a heck of a time producing anything worthwhile.  But when you cultivate and fertilize your soil, you will reap a lush, bountiful harvest.   By growing and investing in myself, I am better equipped to help so many others.
As a result, financially we have been beyond blessed.  My income alone pays our mortgage, car payment, utilities, groceries, and surprise trips for the kids (like Great Wolf Lodge earlier this month) 🙂  It’s crazy to me to that this is possible by just doing what I love to do a few hours a day around my kids’ schedule.
If you are looking for something…a change, a new direction, a new purpose in life;  if you love fitness and want to inspire and influence others, reach out to me.  You don’t have to become pregnant to change the trajectory of your life!  Consider joining my team.  This is about so much more than a fitness program.  Being in the best shape of my life (both physically and emotionally) just happens to be a side effect of making the decision to become a coach.  I know, without a doubt that your life can be blessed just as mine has.  And I want to show you the way as your mentor.

21 Day Fix EXTREME Test Group FORMING NOW!


Test Group

I just got off a LIVE webinar with celebrity fitness trainer, Autumn Calabrese, creator of the best selling 21 Day Fix program!

This program was so popular that it sold out 3 times within days after its release in Feb. 2014.  I have been using the 21 Day Fix with my clients over the past year and seen the most incredible results I have seen in my career in the fitness industry.  

And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…we learn of the launch of Autumn’s brand new program,

21 Day Fix EXTREME!  


The ONLY similarity between the 2 programs is the length of time!  

If you think you’re ready to go EXTREME, keep reading.

SO…just as I did when the original program was launched, I am creating another TEST GROUP to run through the new program with ME for 21 days before it is available to the general public.  

It won’t be free and it will NOT be easy.

This is for those who already have an intermediate fitness base.  NOT a program for beginners.

I’m looking for:

-Fitness instructors (group ex)

-Bootcamp & CrossFit participants who are conditioned

-Participants who have hit their goals with me previously & need to ramp it up

-People who are in very good shape but need to fine tune to see the 6-pack shine through

-People who are well conditioned and need to drop 8-10 pounds for an upcoming event, vacation, photo shoot

Candidates must be willing to work hard and set the excuses aside.

** If you’re just starting your fitness journey this one is NOT for you.**  (But, please contact me for other options!)

This exclusive group will follow a strict, intense fitness program and portion controlled nutrition plan. I will be privately leading this small group by myself as I’m looking to collect testimony for this brand new program.

You must be willing to give me measurements and submit before and after photos and measurements.


The 21 Day Fix EXTREME program consists of 3 weeks of daily, intense workouts and portion controlled nutrition with lots of greens, lean protein and healthy fats.

I am only accepting 8 applicants to ensure I can work closely with you to help you achieve the best results possible.

Registration opens Monday, Feb. 2nd and will CLOSE Friday, Feb. 6th OR once I have chosen 8 participants.  But don’t wait to apply!

PLEASE PRIVATE message me or email ( if you’re interested or if you know someone who is a right fit for this.

Watch the short video here for more details:



On September 25th, I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy.


Max is my 4th baby in 18 years and I gained more weight with this pregnancy than I had with any of my others;  45 lbs. to be exact.  My pregnancy was very healthy and I feel very blessed for that.  4 weeks later, I have lost approximately 25 lbs. through the natural, gradual loss of fluids and breastfeeding, but I’ve got 25 more to go.  My goal is to reach 145lbs.,- which is 5 lbs. less than where I started.  This is my ‘set point’; the weight at which my body naturally hovers with little fluctuation either way.  It is where I feel most healthy, strong, and confident.


10 year anniversary in Maui
(Nov. 2011)
145 lbs.

39 weeks pregnant (Sept. 2013) 194 lbs.

39 weeks pregnant
(Sept. 2013)
194 lbs.

Now that I am a Beachbody coach, I am excited to put one of their fitness programs to the test.  I have seen the results that are possible with my own coaching clients and others around the world who are using the programs.  I used Shakeology prior to and during my pregnancy, so continuing this is a no-brainer.  I truly credit drinking it daily with helping ward off many of the typical pregnancy ailments (constipation, indigestion, heartburn, and insomnia, to name a few).


November 4th marks my 6 weeks post-partum and I am so pumped to start my transformation.  I am creating a women’s only group of challengers to join me on my journey.  If you fit the description below, please send me a message and we can see if this would be a good fit for you:

–       20-40 lbs. to lose (or more, but ready for a jump start)

–       TIRED of being lethargic, unhappy, constipated, grumpy, not sleeping well, etc…

–       MOTIVATED!

–       FED UP with the way you feel

        COMMITTED to change

–       DEDICATED to becoming a better YOU by FOLLOWING THROUGH with the 10-week program

–       NEED the accountability and support of a coach and the power of a group to help keep you on track

The fitness program I am choosing to use for my program is called Focus T25  It’s the hottest new workout program by Shaun T., creator of Insanity and Hip Hop Abs.  The workouts are all just 25 minutes long and intense!  It’s a 5 day/week (10 week) program with 10 different workouts and lots of cool bonuses included.  We will also follow a clean meal plan (heavy on veggies and fruits) and replace one meal a day with Shakeology.

I am very excited to begin my transformation and am looking forward to taking this journey alongside some equally motivated and driven women.  This next few months will be focused and intense and I am only interested in working with women who will be there from beginning to end;  those who have BIG goals and will stop at nothing to achieve them.  If this sounds like you, send me a message and let’s get to work!

In health and wellness,
