And Then She Changed Her Life! The Fit Pfile’s

Do you need some motivation this Monday morning?  I KNOW that I do!  Please allow me the pleasure of introducing you to Michelle.  A sweet friend of mine who is incredible and beautiful from the inside out.  She’s a married Mama of one sweet little girl, she runs her own business, and on top of all of that, is the kind of person your can count on for quick advice, kind words, and lately…a good swift kick in the pants!  So grab a coffee, sit back, and prepare to be amazed at how this friend of mine set her mind to it, and created her own best healthy life….


Twenty years ago, I was in an unhappy marriage and managed to stress eat my way up to 210lbs. I am not sure when or what my trigger moment was but I knew both of those things had to change!

Late one night (most likely while eating Cheezies) I stumbled upon a Beachbody Infomercial about a program called Slim n 6. At the time I was not doing anything physical, however I knew that just starting that one simple thing, I might be able to turn my life around. So for the first time ever, I feel into the trap of late night T.V and purchased the program!! I am happy to report it did not become a dust collector; I completed that program and have never looked back.

Over the course of 20 years I have lost and kept off over 80lbs, as well as kicked that not so stellar husband to the curb and gained a really awesome new one!


This journey has brought countless hours of reading and researching fitness and nutrition, a bazillion hours spent in my basement with my Beachbody workout videos and equipment and most importantly a transition to a happy, healthy and fulfilling life!


The best part is it didn’t stop there; Beachbody keeps giving me amazing opportunities. Not only by continuing to bring out amazing programs that keep me motivated to continue improving my health and fitness. They have also given me the opportunity to be a Beachbody Coach. I am now fulfilling my long-time goal of helping, encouraging and supporting people on their own journey to a healthy, fit and happy life.

To say I feel incredibly lucky to be able to help people everyday is an understatement. This opportunity has fulfilled the dream of mine to work in the fitness and healthy industry.

If you are in need of the push…that little extra bit of motivation! Maybe you are confused as to where you should start and don’t want to sit elbow deep in a bag of Cheezies watching for that perfect workout infomercial…then I can help! My passion is helping you find your passion again, you love of life. Helping people fulfill their dreams is what makes me smile and makes me believe I am giving back. I truly want everyone to feel absolutely comfortable in their own skin, to feel confident and happy! Helping people get their lives back…ENDING THE TREND… this trend of unhappiness, putting a stop to unhealthy lifestyles!


A huge thanks to Michelle for sharing her story with all of us!  If you are looking for some motivation, or some helpful hints, I REALLY hope you will like her Facebook page, The FIT Pfile’s .  (this is not a paid post, it’s just because she is fabulous!)

Now I’m off to throw away my Cheezies! Happy Monday!! xoxo
