Fitness Instructor Official

Well I've gone and done it!  I'm am officially certified to teach CIZE and INSANITY LIVE!!!  

It's so funny because I have been a stay at home mom for 9 years and people are always asking me , "So what are you going to do once all the kids are in school in a few years?"  I didn't want to go back to work!  Yes, my kids would be in school but that didn't mean that I was planning on sitting home on the couch all day.  I wanted to have the freedom to go on field trips with them, volunteer at their school, be the homeroom mom, surprise my husband at work for a lunch date!  I didn't want to have to be at a "normal" job every single day!  So when people would ask me this question I would respond with, "You know, I don't think I will go back to teaching, I'm not sure what I'll do, but we'll see!"  with a smile.  

I thought about that question a lot and  I would talk to my husband and it always came back to Fitness.  I had told him for YEARS, "I'm not sure what I want to do but I want to do SOMETHING with Fitness!  It's my passion and maybe I can become a personal trainer to train moms from their home, or maybe even teach a fitness class?  I'm not sure but something with Fitness!"

I had no clue how this dream would become a reality but I could feel it in my bones and knew that's what I wanted to make happen!  The Summer of 2014 I was introduced to Beachbody and became a fitness coach.  My dream job was starting to come to fruition and I loved every second of it!   I had more energy than ever before and that excitement transferred from my workouts to all other aspects of my life.  I got more chores done around the house, was a better Mom, a better wife, I knew I had to share this with others!  

When CIZE came out, I knew I had to get certified!  I have grown up dancing and have really missed it so much!  I knew this workout was for me and signed up so I could start teaching and share it with others.  I was NERVOUS!  OMGOSH, so nervous!  

What if I forgot the steps and just stood up there marching while the music played with everyone staring at me???  

What if nobody came to class???  

What if, What if, What if???  =)

I just surrendered and gave my fears up to God!  I KNEW I wanted to do this and it didn't matter where it took me or how long it took to get there, I was going to lay it at His feet, have fun, enjoy the ride, do my best, and GO FOR IT!!

Now I am not only teaching CIZE twice a week, I added Insanity to the mix and teach it 2 days a week too!  I am loving every second and can't wait to see where it takes me!  Have you also dreamed about doing SOMETHING in the Fitness industry?  Personal Training?  Fitness Instructor?  Coach?  If you have, please contact me, I'd love to give you my advice and help you reach your goals!  Don't let your fears stand in your way, just go for it!  What's the worst that can happen?!?  =)  

 Getting certified was so much fun!

 Loved getting to meet Fit and Funky, Danielle Natoni, herself!!  =)

 The first class I taught was a SUCCESS!  Everyone loved it and we had a lot of fun!  =)
