Fitness Coach & Homeschool Mom

A Little About Me….

10176037_10152900257199479_3773352869864898448_nI’m a married, stay at home, homeschooling mom of 2 little, crazy active boys.  I am also a Star Diamond Beachbody Coach and a portrait photographer.  I wear many hats in the course of a day and I’m always trying to find balance between being a mom, a wife, a teacher, an entrepreneur, a photographer and to just be ME.  Its easy to get lost in the hustle of day to day life but I’m determined not to let myself get lost again!

This is my journey to live a healthy life, physically & mentally and my goal is to bring as many other women as I can along for the ride to live a healthier, more balanced life.  I help women (and men too!) with fitness and nutrition and we do it all from home.

I started back in 2010, when my boys were just 2 & 4.  Like many other women, I just felt fat, tired and frumpy.  I was not happy!  I loved my life but I did not love who I saw when I looked in the mirror.  I was on the couch one night watching random tv when I saw a P90X infomercial.  I had never purchased anything from tv before but for some reason, Tony spoke to me and I bought it.  When it arrived, I put it in the closet and didn’t  look at it again for 3 weeks.  Finally, one day, I took it out and thought I’d give it a try.  90 days later, I was down 17 lbs and had gone down 3 pants sizes.  I couldn’t believe it!

I started looking up more information on this Tony Horton guy and found out he was coming to a college not far from my house.  Not knowing a soul, I dropped the kids off at my mom’s and headed out.  I spent the day immersed in Beachbody.  I ate lunch with Tony Horton’s father, I tried Shakeology for the first time (only chocolate existed), I worked out 6 feet away from Tony (we did 3 workouts that day!), we listened to speakers who were brand new to the business and I learned about the coaching opportunity.  I signed up when I got home and that started my journey with Beachbody.

Now my “job” is helping busy people get active! I love to work with people who struggle to find time for themselves because I know how important self-care is. People, who seem to have time to help everyone else, but forget about themselves. People who know they need more movement and healthy meals in their lives but aren’t sure where to start or just need a nudge each day to get it done. Since that first meeting, I have done just about every Beachbody program, have ordered Shakeology every month since that first order I placed back in July 2010, I have coached hundreds of men & women though these programs and I have built a full time business from home, using mostly social media.

I help people by selecting a workout regimen that fits their lifestyle (and budget). I help them by resolving their time management issues. We figure out their main motivation, their WHY, and then I support them DAILY in support groups with other people who have similar struggles. As a homeschool mom who works at home, time management has become essential for my own sanity!

I started homeschooling my boys in 2012 and while my photography business has slowed down to make time for our homeschooling, entrepreneurship lifestyle, it still plays a prevalent role in my life.  Aside from the money and the amazing people I have met on this journey, my favorite part has been the freedom that this lifestyle affords us.  We are able to travel and do the things we want to do in this life and when we want to do them.

I am always looking to mentor new coaches on my team, Team Firestarter.  If you are self motivated, enjoy helping people and want to create a life that you LOVE, complete the form below!  Let’s see where this journey can take you!
