Triumph as a Beachbody Coach


I used to feel so worthless.

I went from working as a full time ICU nurse to being a super part time nurse with a brand new baby at home. It was a huge adjustment for me to be home all the time.

Over the years, I have learned how to love it and enjoy my time with my son.

But in the last year, there was a HUGE feeling of “what am I supposed to be doing”? I was so BORED with life but I didn’t want to put my son in daycare to work more or go back to school and be away from my family more. I have always been ambitious and a hard worker and I wanted to do something more with my life.

My husband and I work holidays, weekends and nights and our time together is PRICELESS. I just couldn’t stop thinking about how to fill that void of purpose with something I can do at home to help others?

I considered starting up a home gym in my garage to train clients, but we didn’t have the funds for that. I considered becoming a certified personal trainer to do online coaching, but the cert was expensive and I would have had to spend hundreds of hours of time to create workout and nutrition plans.

So I researched Team Beachbody for a month straight and learned everything I could. . I couldn’t find anything bad. I didn’t have to go back to formal school or get a second job outside of the home.

The best part? NOW I get to work less so I see my family MORE. I don’t have to put my son in daycare. Now I get paid to share what I love and help others from home.


Learning & Growing as a Team Beachbody Coach


I love learning.
That’s what attracted me to the field of medicine and to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
That’s why I love learning all types of fitness.
That’s why I love coaching.
Before I became a coach, I didn’t love reading. I wanted to DO more and BE more and share my knowledge with others, but I didn’t know how. I didn’t really have any goals, I was just drifting through life, wondering what to do.
Since becoming a coach, I have experienced a tremendous amount of personal growth, learned to love reading, created my own business and brand, forced myself to get out of my comfort zone, shared my knowledge and PASSION with others, and I have continued to improve myself and push past failures and obstacles every day.
How have you grown as a person this year?

5 Tips for Happiness


I learned this last night so I wanted to share with you! Happiness is something I strive for daily and is not easy for me. I tend to have a “realistic” attitude and I have to work at it!

5 tips for happiness:

  1. Write down 3 things you are grateful for each morning- something new each day!
  2. Journal for 2 m inutes a day about one positive experience you’ve had in the last day- Write down every detail, which helps your brain to reexperience the experience
  3. Meditate daily- sit still for 2 minutes to train your brain not to be distracted by negativity
  4. Do a random act of kindness over the course of each day- write a text or email to someone thanking them
  5. Exercise for at least 15 minutes a day- exercise is proven to have a stronger, more powerful effect than an antidepressant

If you do these things every day for 21 days, they will become a happy habit!

Lacey Potter Coach Transformation

I am so excited to introduce you to my high school friend Lacey Howard Potter!

She is one of my fellow Beachbody teammates with a team of her own coaches, as well as a member of my fitness/nutrition accountability group!

Not only does she CONSISTENTLY score super high on her workouts, nutrition and water intake, she is a PERFECT example of someone who is HARD WORKING and HUMBLE at the same time!

Lacey, THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful struggles and triumphs with us! You are SO inspiring!

This is her story:

“A year ago, as all new mothers do, I was trying to get a grip on life with a 2-month-old baby. I can’t imagine how working moms do it, because I was barely finding time to shower in the day, let alone think about working out. I knew I wanted to lose my baby weight, but exercise and eating right really took a back seat to everything else.

After 6 months, I started trying to eat healthier and get exercise in a few times a week, but I still wasn’t seeing much of a change in my weight. I gave up trying to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes and gave in to buying new ones.

Fast forward a year. Same dress, whole new attitude! I’m so grateful for the 21 Day Fix program. I started this past June, which taught me that even though I was eating healthy things, I was eating too much of them. I can’t say enough good things about the way 21 Day Fix works to help you lose weight and create better habits for your life!”

If you have a PASSION for health & fitness and LOVE to help other people, please contact me at for more information about coaching or our next fitness/accountability group. 🙂

Mindy Rose Coaching Success Story

mindy prof

Mindy Rose  has built a strong solid business with an incredible income, more than doubling what they were living on prior to Beachbody.

I’ll never forget when Mindy got pregnant with her fourth baby. It was a surprise, and another surprise to find out her precious little boy had spinal bifida. When she was out in bed rest I know it was extremely hard for Mindy and her family with three young kids at home. Life isn’t always easy ya know? Luckily this business continued to pay even though Mindy took some time off. But you know what I admire about Mindy? Mindy gave up a streak at that point of hitting success club every single month. But she didn’t just say “well screw than, I’m no longer a success club all star, so doesn’t matter if I make that a non negotiable moving forward.”

Mindy has owned her story, her journey, and pressed on.

Today she is officially a Success Club 5 All Star. Signifying 12 consecutive months in success club.

Her story proves you can make this business work for you. If you miss benchmark goals you don’t throw in the towel- you pick yourself up and keep moving forward! And you’ll be STRONGER for it, just like Mindy is.

Kacia Fitzgerald Coaching Success Story



Kacia Fitzgerald knows how to make everyone she meets feel like a million bucks.

Kacia lives in New York City with her boyfriend Seena and she started coaching two years ago. She started off just wanting a discount on Shakeology. Then it progressed to wanting to run her own challenge groups. But the whole time this young corporate girl kept telling me “I love my corporate job, I just want to do Beachbody on the side.”

Famous last words! Ha! Fast forward a year and Kacia is leaving a corporate job at Google to be a full time Beachbody coach. Who can resist being your own ‪#‎girlboss‬, even if your employer is Google?!

This girl has built an AMAZING amazing team who is for the most part is just like her. Young girls who have graduated from college, in committed relationships, working corporate jobs. Kind of cool to see the Fit Foundation entourage showing people around the United States and Canada that you can be your own boss! You don’t have to dread Monday!

Kacia has lead her team well. And today she is an official Success Club 10 All Star Legend. That means she has set the standard of hitting Success Club 10 every single month in her business. She helps at LEAST five people get started every single month in an online fitness challenge group or coach training group. And she has done that for 24 consecutive months to achieve this status!!

Design Your Life with Coaching



Throwback from the Top Diamond Coach retreat in the Dominican Republic.

Deciding to become a coach was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I did it to help others & to work my passion, not for money (but the money is a nice perk).

You may not think it’s for you and that’s cool, but you may also have some misconceptions about what it is and what it entails.
