My Story


At Beachbody SummitMy name is Christina. I am 42 years old and have been happily married for 19 years. I have two wonderful daughters ages 11 and 9, a Yorkie named Oliver and I work full time as an Executive Assistant and I am a certified Insanity instructor.

I am on a fabulous fitness journey. I have always worked out, I run, I've had gym memberships, I've done two 1/2 marathons, but have never really felt toned and fit. I am petite and at a healthy weight, but I had lost muscle definition. I was at a place where I felt like I looked good in clothes, but wanted to look good naked. You know what I mean?

I found Beachbody and Insanity about two years ago. I did the Insanity program and I loved it. I saw results and felt so strong and tone. Who knows what happened, but I didn't continue on my journey. There were, I'm sure a ton of excuses. I found myself about to turn 40 at the beginning of  that year and decided, the time was right now. I wasn't going to start a new decade feeling this way about myself again.

So I started running and did a 1/2 marathon. That was great, it kept me working out but it didn't keep me inspired.

I then decided I needed to get back on Insanity because it truly gave me the results I was looking for and I loved it. I joined a Challenge Group and the rest is history.  I had amazing results!  The motivation, accountability and support I got from the Challenge Group, as well as the fun competitive spirit, made my results even better than I had ever imagined!!

I do have to say, the one thing that has totally ramped up my progress and results and energy is when I began to use Shakeology.  Now believe me, I did my research, I was skeptical, very skeptical, it was expensive.  I couldn't find anything that had the same amazing, healthy ingredients, without a ton of filler ingredients that I couldn't pronounce and it also tastes great. I have a chocolate shake every single morning and my body, along with my workouts of course, is totally transforming! My tummy bloat is gone and I'm beginning to see definition in my abs. I've lost a craving for sweets and I am fully satisfied and not hungry until lunch. I no longer experience the terrible headaches that I was having right before "that time of the month."

I decided to become a Team Beachbody Coach at the beginning just to get the 25% discount on my monthly Shakeology and all the fabulous workout programs I was interested in buying.  However after one of my best friends noticed the results I was getting from the Shakeology and the Beachbody workout programs I was doing and decided to purchase the program herself as a result of my results, it changed me.   I also had a couple of others talk to me about the same thing and there I had my very first official Challenge Group!!

That was exciting and empowering to me, because though I’d never have dreamed in a million years that I would be a part of helping someone in their fitness journey, here I was, helping others out of pure enthusiasm! I found myself telling someone what worked for me, what I’d tried, what I’d heard someone else say worked for them, and giving encouragement.  People helping people – from all around the country – working towards one common goal: Reversing The Trends of Obesity: One Relationship at a Time!

Please contact me if I can answer any questions related to Beachbody products or my personal journey to create a healthy mind, body and spirit. I continue to improve my fitness, body and mind each day. It's day by day, not one of us is perfect. It's just one choice at a time. I'd love to chat with you!

I am always looking for people to join my team – I’d love to hear from you if you think you might be interested in joining my team or one of my Challenge Groups!
