I started my path to a healthier life over 6 years ago. You can read my complete history in this site. I wanted to look and feel healthy and fight against the “obesity gene” that runs in my family. After a few years I got passionate about what I was learning every day and I felt it was my responsibility to share what I learnt and help others achieve what I have achieved.
In 2010 I started a blog in Spanish (www.vivirenbienestar.com) in which I share nutrition and general wellness tips, and many things I have learned during the nutrition courses I took. In 2011 my Coach Carmen Melgoza contacted me to begin collaboration relation between our blogs. In our conversations she mentioned about Beachbody and what this company offers. I was very attracted by the company main goal: to offer people exercise programs, excellent supplements and simple meal plans scientifically designed for all people who wants to make a change to a healthier lifestyle and have easy and simple guides to help them be successful in the process.
At that time I could not become a coach because I was living in Spain and Beachbody products were only offered in the U.S and Canada. In 2012 I moved to Canada to continue my studies in Nutrition and contacted Carmen to start the Turbo Fire program and loved it! Its’ a kickboxing program that helps you have fun while burning calories, excellent!
With the responsibilities of my home and my studies I neglected the time to exercise and I didn’t do the program continuously until I woke up again because I was starting to let the “obesity gene” win the battle. I decided that my responsibilities of wanting to get good grades in college and be a professional would not stop me to feel healthy inside and out. I decided to resume my fight against the gene and I started another program called 10 min Trainer and I started drinking Shakeology, which helped me regain control of my genes in a practical and simple way by just devoting a few minutes a day. Later I learned that the company was opening the opportunity to become coaches for those living in Canada. I thought about it, but I did not take long to decide to join because it was a way to reach many more people, share my message of adopting healthy habits and devote myself to what I actually was passionate about for almost 7 years: health and wellness.
Being a Beachbody coach means to be passionate about helping others to regain control of their life and their body; to lead healthier lives and help stop the trend of obesity that is taking this society to be more obese and full of linked-poor-diet and low-physical activity diseases, that by recommending home-workout programs, simple meal plans and quality supplements that allow people to make phenomenal changes in their life and health.
To be Beachbody coach is not required to have extensive knowledge of nutrition and fitness, it is only necessary that you are determined to change your life and motivate and inspire others to follow your way. In this way we can reverse the trend of obesity together.
Start with yourself and those around you. It’s a decision you’ll never regret!!
Remember, Nutrition is Wellness!!
