What I Do As a Coach


First and foremost, my purpose as a health and fitness Coach is to help other women create a healthy lifestyle centered around faith, with the ultimate goal of being fit from within.

In September 2015, I was the heaviest I have ever been, couldn't stick to a healthy eating and workout routine to save my life, and a very tired new mama to my precious baby boy. I was tired of being tired and knew I was on a slipper slope to quickly moving from out of shape to unhealthy.

One year ago this month, I began shedding those feelings, weight, and inches.
With support of other women in a Challenge Group focusing on similar goals, I realized that God cares about my preventative health; it is POSSIBLE to dig out of a hopeless hole; and I care for those around me better when I care for myself.

After being a Challenger for a few months, I decided to become a Coach. I felt it was a calling from God that I was supposed to share this experience with others! I just wasn't ready to step out of my comfort zone yet, and my infant son wasn't even sleeping through the night. Finally, I took a leap of faith and shared openly about leading Challenge Groups. Palms sweating and all, I posted on social media and prayed I was doing the right thing. Almost a dozen Challenge Groups later and having the opportunity to support over a 100 women invest in their health in less than a year, I am humbled and grateful for taking that leap!

Coaching allows me to share my gift of supporting and nurturing with others. I love being able to share how including faith in my health transformed me physically, and more importantly spiritually.

Each month, I take at least one group of women and work with them through a 30 day challenge group. I begin with helping my Challengers identify a workout program that aligns with their style and goals. During each challenge group, I teach everyone how to create a balanced meal plan. Positive accountability is a very effective way I encourage and motivate everyone to remain committed to their goals. I absolutely love helping each of my Challengers achieve what their individual success!


In addition to leading my own challenge groups, I am one of the coaches on Team Take Heart which is a part of the Dream Team, the most successful team within Team Beachbody. Something I love dearly about Team Take Heart is how we all come from different backgrounds but share a common goal of supporting others through health, fitness, and faith. Our team verse is "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord." (Psalm 31:24)

We aren't a bunch of fitness instructors that work out all day long or have it all figured out. We are a group of women that strive for progress in our own health and have a passion for sharing that with others. I am blessed to serve with the coaches on our team!

Being a health and fitness coach is an amazing opportunity to share your gifts, passion, and support your own health journey.
