Success Story Sunday: Ginette

Success Story Sunday: Ginette

Success Story Sunday: Ginette Fitness is a journey. It is a lifestyle. One worth taking. So many people people want to be in shape, but come up with thousands of reasons of why not to workout or eat healthier. You want to be in shape? It’s going to take a decision to push past the fear and SWEAT!! Earn it! Be it!! You’ll be able to look in the mirror and tell yourself ” ‘I’ worked for it!! ‘I’ created this!! Not a magic pill, wrap, surgery etc. Our friend Ginette is a prime example of NO EXCUSES! I started working with Ryan and Carolyn and Beachbody about 2.5 years ago. I wasn’t overly serious about it at first, until I realized I had let my weight become a problem and it was effecting my health, work and self-esteem. I had always been a fit person prior to this and I let lazy habits get the best of me. When I realized this, I reached out to the team and the group support. I constantly read the successes and failures of people who where going through the same thing as me. It kicked my butt in gear. If they can do it. So can I. No excuses! The constant motivation from team members and Ryan & Carolyn has pushed me past limits I didn’t know I could reach. I didn’t like Shakeology at first, until I read all the amazing recipes my team members had come up with!! Talk about my favorite meal of the day now! I’ve lost 35 lbs in a year from the work outs, shakes,...

Wicked Wednesday: Nicki’s Journey

Wicked Wednesday: Nicki’s Journey

Time for a heartfelt story from my friend, and one of my Coaches, Nicki who’s been on a journey that started long ago. She’s come so far and I am so incredibly proud of her… I’ve never compared pictures of my “before and after” mostly because it’s been a really bumpy ride. Lots of up and downs. I’ve always been a bigger girl… not huge, but never fit. I ate what I wanted and kept busy riding horses and such, but never any sort of working out. The left picture is of me at my heaviest. It was a year out of university. The right is a few weeks ago. I never had a “light bulb” moment, but about a year after my heaviest I had a job where I was really active and lost a lot of weight. I felt great and when I started to gain some weight again (never got my eating in line) I freaked out and took up running and did that for a few years. Somewhere along the line I found some cheap fitness DVDs and had pretty good results with them, but I was obsessive. I worked out a good 3 hours a day… running 12 miles was an easy day for me. I didn’t see at the time, but I was too small. At that point, I became pregnant with our first child and gained a lot of weight. I felt miserable the whole time. I did lose it quickly, but once again developed an unhealthy obsession with exercise. I found Insanity in this time and fell in love with the...

Wicked Wednesday: Mandee’s Transformation

Wicked Wednesday: Mandee’s Transformation

Every transformation starts with the decision to try… Mentally it has to shift for you where you know that you need to do something… anything to just make it happen. We all know change is hard. We all know that working out is hard. But so is NOT making a change or NOT working out. You just chose which hard you want to do. You can continue on being overweight, unhealthy, and lack energy all you want. That sounds hard! Or you can choose to do something about it and make a change… which is also hard. So… choose your hard! Mandee made a decision. She made the decision to take her future into her own hands and make a change. Has it been hard? Yep! Has it been worth it? OH HELL YA! This is her story… Five years ago, the idea of looking in a mirror filled me with anxiety. I was overweight, hated having my picture taken, and don’t even get me started on what it felt like to shop for clothing. I couldn’t understand how I could LET this happen to me, or how to fix it. A year later, I couldn’t take it anymore. A very close friend of mine had just gotten a gym membership, and was loving it so much, and it inspired me to try gym life again. The gym had been hard for me in the past; I was inexperienced, couldn’t afford a trainer, and was so insecure about being “the fat girl,” that it felt so stressful for me to ever throw myself into a workout. So I signed...
