'Coaching' Deanna

I'm a Team Beachbody Coach. I became one after completing the first phase of P90X. I saw measurable results and couldn't help but let my passion and giddiness about it overflow. I have even publicly bragged a time or two in the hopes that I could get others excited about starting their own journey into a healthier lifestyle. It seems to be working.
The 'job' of being a coach for Team Beachbody is about inspiring others to get into shape. It's about getting healthy and reaching out to others to join you. And that's what I've done with Deanna. I invited her to join me in this quest and she has agreed to go 'all in'.
Now let me tell you a little about Deanna. She is no cookie-cutter woman. Every single time I talk to her I'm either amazed or surprised. Ultimately, I always walk away having learned something because she is simply that awesome. She's a rare gem that way. On the other hand, she is 'every woman'. Just like many of us, she has struggled over the years to find herself. She's gotten lost in the busyness of every day life and has put herself on the back burner for the sake of, well, just every day stuff. She has dieted and lost weight. She has gained it back, only to lose it again. She has been on that roller coaster. Just exactly like so many of us. This time it's different, though. She's not going to diet. Diets are about deprivation. She will not deprive herself of anything. Instead, she will treat her body like the temple it is. She will introduce to it wonderfully healthy and delicious foods. She will push herself physically to shed fat and build muscle. She will struggle. She will fight. She may even cry. But, she is committed and she will succeed. I believe in her.
The thing about this is...supposedly I'm her coach but, realistically, she is the one who inspires me.

  1. I believe she can do it, I know she can do it and seeing her accomplish her goals will inspire not only others but me as well, as she has done in the past.

    GO DEANNA!!!!
