Back to Basics August Challenge: Apply Now


August is quickly approaching & I'm in the final stages of prep to host a Back to Basics Challenge Group with my ‪#‎GracefullyBalanced‬ team!

Why do I host & 'advertise' these groups each month?

- because I was never truly consistent until I had the accountability!
Community & support IS the missing link in a healthy lifestyle. It's time to pay it FORWARD.


Why do I believe so strongly in the programs I pair people with?

- because fitness & nutrition doesn't have to be confusing!
30 minutes a day of exercise & simple, whole foods is all it takes. It worked for me 20 pounds ago. Time to pay it FORWARD.


I'm no magician & I surely won't give you an overnight solution, but I WILL hold you accountable to your goals, provide you with an environment that encourages growth & get you set up with tools that will compliment your healthy lifestyle and help you reach your goals.


No if's, and's or but's.


Accountability + Fitness + Nutrition -- WORKS.


You can keep doing it your own way, or you can join us! We're moving on to total body wellness no matter who hops on this train.


Our Back to Basics group starts August 1 & I'm finalizing selections now.

Gracefully Balanced is NASHVILLE BOUND!


#‎GracefullyBalanced‬ is NASHVILLE BOUND for Summit in T-Minus NINE days!!!
.

Each summer, thousands (like 20k +) of coaches gather for our annual SUMMIT -- an opportunity for awesome workshops, incredible guest speakers, live workouts, exciting announcements & good ole fashion fellowship between teams.

.
Last July was my very first time attending Summit in Nashville, TN & it hands DOWN impacted myself, my business & my ability to lead my team in such a BIG, positive way.

.
Life responsibilities & little nuggets might be keeping a few of the coaches on our team from joining us this year, but I'm SO excited to spend time with Alyssa & Brittany -- connecting on a 1:1 level, introducing them to other leaders, watching the visions for their teams develop & seeing them set some amazing personal goals that will positively affect so many around them.

.
You might not be able to join us THIS summer in Nashville, but you can still reach out now to learn more about what it takes to be a part of Gracefully Balanced & the amazing growth happening on our team.

.
We're moving onto some big, exciting things no matter what -- but it would sure be awesome if you joined us!!

.
Time to JUMP

Proud to be a Teambeachbody Coach


One of the things I care about most is that I build my business & lead my team with my heart, passion & integrity - above ALL else.

Did you know there are 200+ million people in North America who are overweight & obese? But if I'm being honest & speaking from the heart, the only thing I care equally about as people being healthy is how they FEEL everyday about themselves!

Are they happy & confident?
Are they uncomfortable in their own skin?
Are they cutting their life short due to poor daily choices?
Are they missing out on memories because of a lack of confidence?
Are they feeling alone or like something's just missing?


I've learned a lot from Beachbody's CEO - Carl Daikeler - AND from my amazing mentor, dear friend & leader - Brittany LeGette. And y'all -- I've got to share our passion for who a 'COACH' really is.

This machine of a business is built on heart 
We have THE solution for a population that really wants, craves & needs CHANGE -- y'all, I can say this, because I WAS one of those people.

Team Beachbody takes the group of people who NEED change and they give the opportunity to make an income off of our OWN fitness // wellness success. 

Helping people go from OBESE to NOT - plus giving them a financial lever to do so - THAT truly is unlike anything else.

The business model is there.
The products are simply unrivaled.
The access is these tools is SO convenient.
And the support is really just one of a kind. 


Our products work. And we get paid to have results.

Some would say this is the total package -- but one thing is missing, which is the >work< that we've GOT to do.

WE have to be the ones though to press play on our 30 minute workout in our garage or living room every day. WE have to fuel our bodies with Shakeology & healthy foods -- which includes the occasional donuts.


When we do that though. Those simple, consistent behaviors.. The results WILL come. There's just no way around it.


Beachbody guarantees this formula so much - that they will GIVE you your money back. And if that's not proven confidence - I really don't know what is..

Coaches share the journey.
We don't push the product.
We connect with people.

And we find something that's going to HELP + SERVE.


Why WOULDN'T you be a coach?! 

We are a network focused on relationships, solution & change... & it works.

And that's why I am proud to be a Team Beachbody Coach.

(Thank you, Britt for your never ending inspiration. And for introducing me to this amazing opportunity that's making WAVES!)

August Support Group


Hey girl

You DONT have to be in this alone - You actually SHOULDN'T!


You know why?


Because you can try it all or spend money on all types of things that will promise you the moon... BUT none of it matters unless you have someone doing it WITH you - someone who will encourage you to keep going when you don't feel like it.

Simply put - people with accountability stick with their healthy lifestyle & accomplish their goals.

It's not about quick fixes & fancy equipment

It's not about exclusive memberships & taking supplements

It's definitely not about reaching a certain number on the scale


It IS about diving into an positive, challenging environment that helps you change your LIFESTYLE and live WELL from the inside -- out!

I want to invite you to my next online fitness group. I'm dedicated to showing up with my challengers, holding them accountable, offering tips + support, and encouraging them as they start to make small healthy changes that add up to big results over time.


This is how it goes:
1. Tell me your goals - and let's chat about your lifestyle 
2. Pick a program - something that fits your goals + schedule
3. Pick a flavor of your dense natural nutrition smoothie
4. Show me your commitment by plugging in daily
5. Change your life & inspire others


Fill out the questionnaire HERE to RSVP! 

You can remain ACTIVE and still enjoy all this upcoming season of summer brings - trust me! I'm doing it myself -- so do it with me!!

Taking CARE of yourself is the best gift you can give yourself & your family. 30 Minutes of self care has made me a better wife, coach, fur momma, friend, etc.

▶️I have 5 spots left - and they're available on a first come basis!! So hurry up & reach out!!





Grace Upon Grace



This has been the mantra of my heart the past 10ish days of traveling, preparing for travel, family, preparing for family, etc.


Grace Upon Grace.


I can't do it all sometimes.
And I can't take that personally.
I have to stick to the things I do no matter what to honor my priorities & let the rest go occasionally.


This past week + I haven't been the best coach/social media encouragement/mentor/etc. I just have to own it, give myself Grace & continue moving toward. No guilt. Not getting stuck on it. I'm trucking along👌


I'm calling myself out here for the accountability I need, but also as a great reminder for other women out there.


STOP carrying guilt when you have a few days of having to let "extras" go.. It happens. Just don't stay there. Call yourself out. Receive Grace from yourself. And keep on keeping on.


I'm back, y'all 💕
