About Me...

I am a wife and mother of three kiddos, ages 23, 19, and 12. My husband is the love of my life, and we have been married for 26 years. We love the Lord and purpose to put Him at the center of our home and lives. We are a very active family who loves camping, vacationing, playing with our horses, and our Mustangs. We are very active in our church and enjoy serving with our church family. Health and fitness have been a part of our lives for many years. All three of our kiddos were born via c-section, so needless to say, my stomach has not been the same since my muscles were cut through...UNTIL I began doing my Beachbody workouts. I have been using their products for years, and my results have been amazing. I cannot say enough about the results that can be achieved if you are consistent with the workouts every day.

"What is easy to do is also easy not to do." To do or not to do is the question? Every day I make the choice to press play and complete my workout. I feel full of energy and a sense of accomplishment when my workout is done for the day. I am excited to be on this journey of fitness and hope to bring you along with me. I look forward to seeing all of your fitness, wellness, and life dreams come true. Join me in the journey!

My Transformation:

I have always had an interest in my fitness, and have been going to the gym for many years either to walk or to take a class. The gym that we were members at was about 35 minutes from home so we would only go 1-2 times per week. I knew I should be working out more consistently than that so I began using Beachbody products to have daily workouts. There were so many to choose from and something was always coming out that I enjoyed...10 Minute Trainer, Hip Hop Abs, Brazil Butt Lift, Body Beast, T25, to 21 Day Fix. Each program proved to be challenging for me and allowed me to see results. The key to getting results was ME! I knew that I had to be consistent every day. I was tired of having a muffin top from my three c-sections. My daughter used to ask me why my stomach looked "that way"... the roll at the top of my scar. "Silly girl, it is because of you!" Well, enough was enough, I decided that I was going to work hard to get rid of my tummy. My results are below so you can see that our programs work if you work them...



You can achieve your goals as well. If you are needing to lose weight or just want to tighten and tone, our programs will work for you. We have challenge groups in place to assist you with your fitness & wellness goals. If you are not sure what challenge groups are or how they work, that is ok. ......

Before I could even be seen in public in my yoga pants, I briefly entertained the idea of losing 10 pounds

A lack of physical assurance often stems from a lack of positive body image, or a lack of self-confidence since they are all interrelated. While women seem to be more prone, everyone is conditioned (at least a little) to compare size and shape to models, celebrities and those casual naked strangers in the locker rooms. And it’s been happening since middle school gym class.

Body Image: Good News and Bad News

The new Dove Beauty and Confidence Report issued in June 2016 interviewed 10,500 females from 13 countries and found that despite the awareness of negative body issues, women’s body confidence has been on the decline for the last two decades.

In addition, if you were overweight in childhood or in your teenage years, picked last for kickball, or you felt overly frustrated about a certain body part, the Dove studies also indicate that negative childhood experiences can inhibit physical activity later on in life.

The good news is you are definitely not alone. What’s more, starting anything new is bound to make you feel at least a little self-conscious. If you’ve never used a squat rack, or performed the perfect lunge, that’s OK. No one expects you to be a pro when you first start. It’s more about consistently putting in the time and effort. As P90X creator Tony Horton says in almost every workout, “Do your best, and forget the rest.”

How to Silence Your Own Inner Exercise Critic

“There are such high expectations from society and the media about what physical fitness and a perfect body looks like,” says Stephen Graef, Ph.D., a sports psychologist and clinical assistant professor of family medicine at Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center. We compare ourselves to the slender model or the guy with the ripped abs on the billboard, even though we know we don’t look like them. “It’s human nature. It’s the same way you wonder if you’re earning what your peers are, or buying as nice a home,” explains Graef.

“People unconsciously use body image as a motivator to work out harder,” explains John Mayer, Ph.D,, president of the International Sports Professionals Association. While a little competition can be effective, he says it can also backfire when we can’t ever do as well as the ripped guy across the street who bench presses a VW Beetle for fun. “We see ourselves differently than others do, thus, we are proverbially ‘our own worst critics,'” says Mayer.

Here are savvy strategies to silence that insidious negative voice that insists you can’t possibly finish a 5K, lose 10 pounds, or make it all the way through a CIZE dance routine. Because that voice is wrong.

Lean into the discomfort. Within reason, says Graef. It’s OK to be worried about learning new skills; ask a friend to join you to allay your fears. Experiment together, take a deep breath, and then go for it.

Have realistic expectations. “It’s OK if I don’t look like Mario Lopez when I take off my shirt,” says Mayer. Everyone is working on their health and wellness. As long as you’re maintaining your health and pursuing fitness, you’re on the right track.

Set specific, measurable goals. For example, I want my waist to be a size X, or I want to run a 5K in 22 minutes. “This way when you reach that goal you have tangible evidence that you don’t stink,” says Mayer.

Just do it. Remember that thing about losing weight before you join the gym? Scratch that. “Most often this fails, and fails miserably, because you never reach the body confidence level you feel you need to be at in order to join the gym or start the yoga class,” says Mayer.

Process with a professional. If you’re still stymied by your evil exercise twin jabbering about all the things you can’t do, or if you’ve really struggled with negative self-talk for too long, Mayer suggests talking with a professional who can help you process and put them behind you.

Now get out there and kick butt.
