Pedal backwards to March 2020 when I awoke at 250 lbs (5’6″) and decided that I was going to lose weight. Fast forward to December 2021 and I had lost the weight through a strict cardio daily cardio routine and improved nutrition, however I was not strong, not flexible and had poor stability. I was thin but not truly healthy.
Coach Laura and I had been connected on MMR and we’d been following each other. I had been and I still am intrigued with her beauty, intelligence, altruistic personality and level of fitness. I liked her style and her large gym shoe collection too. I joined BeachBody in December of 2021. It was a Christmas gift I bought for myself with some nudging from Coach Laura. I was determined to get strong and fit. Coach Laura made some program recommendations that she thought I might like. I didn’t like them. I loved them and the results started happening. I began to feel strength, agility, endurance, mobility, grace and see muscle forming. Coach Laura was and still is always there to encourage me and coach me as well as so many other people. I am grateful to have her in my life. She inspires me in so many ways. Today I am a strong, confident, fit and beautiful woman turning 50 in February of 2023. While it took me to make the decisions to better my quality of life, Coach Laura encourages, supports, challenges and inspires me to continue on that journey to forever fitness.
