Want to lose weight? Get totally ripped and burn some serious calories?

Many of you have heard me speak of my love for fitness and about my former career as a personal trainer, competitive cyclist and spin instructor. I love supporting people in their health and well being. When I started Authentic Beauty, I had no idea it was going to be so difficult to maintain my own personal level of fitness. Within two years of launching the company, I had gained 30 pounds and  stopped working out for four years. It has taken me a long time to have health and fitness become part of my every day life again. Instead of trying to “find” the time, I schedule it as I would any other appointment.


What has helped me do this is a wonderful company called Beachbody. A few years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Shakeology (the shake you see me drink from time to time while I’m working at the studio). I have never been a huge supporter of the supplement industry; however, when I was introduced to this product and analyzed the ingredients, I decided I would try it. I have used these shakes as a meal replacement for over 2 years.  I just feel better. I don’t crave sugar. I have more energy and most importantly my body is digesting way more good stuff than I would ever consume! Sometimes, with as busy as I am, these shakes are the only thing I have time for.

I am not one to share MLM companies unless someone is genuinely interested. In fact, I don’t think I have sold one bag of Shakeology. My mother even signed up with someone else! But what I am writing about and what I hope will be of interest to you today is something amazing that this company has done.


I have talked to quite a few of you about your fitness endeavours with P90X, Insanity and other at home fitness programs. I discovered at home videos (when I signed up to be a Beachbody coach I got a bonus Tony Horton DVD) during the Snowpocalypse last year.  Since it was  -3 and I couldn’t go to the gym so I decided to try it.

I am a gym rat. I lift weights. I like the gym lifestyle and I do not do fitness videos; however, I put the DVD in and I was hooked. I began sharing my discovery and found others who loved these workouts. In fact, I was encouraged by a client to try the Insanity series. Instead I purchased, by accident, the second level of Insanity called “The Asylum”. This series is designed for athletes, and I was hooked. I fell in love with these workouts and I have been doing them for about a year.

I have tried a few other programs but spending $75-100 per program wasn’t something I could bring myself to spend money on. So, I finally decided I was going to try P90x and went to the Beachbody website and that was when I discovered Beachbody On DEMAND!


For a small monthly fee ($15.95 AND a $39.95 enrollment fee), you can choose whichever fitness video you want whenever you want. You don’t have to buy the series! This is a wonderful service, and there are now ZERO excuses for NOT working out. When I was traveling last week, I never missed a workout because I watched the workouts from the comforts of my hotel room from my laptop. These workouts are fun and challenging no matter what skill level you are. I invite you to check out this wonderful initiative by Beachbody.

Below is the FAQ and HERE is the link to sign up.  And if you want to try some Shakeology you can find that as well!
