What is GolladayFit?
Hi, I'm Shannon Golladay! I'm the founder of GolladayFit. GolladayFit is a health & fitness coaching program designing specifically for moms in the United States and Canada. Who am I? I am a health & fitness coach for moms. I use Beachbody workouts and programs to help moms get in the best shape of their lives. I believe that every mom deserves to feel and look good inside and out. I am from Orem, Utah. I currently live in California. I have three daughters, and a wonderful husband who is amazing. To tell you the truth, I never thought I'd be a health and fitness coach. Let alone a Beachbody Coach. It just kind of happened. Growing up I was a gymnast, dancer, cheerleader, runner, hiker, water and snow skier. I love being active, and I love fitness. I never thought I'd need to worry losing weight.
I struggled with my weight gained during my pregnancies. I was shocked to see 199 lbs. on the scale the day our first daughter was born in June 2009. I didn't feel like "me" anymore. I felt like I was in a body that wasn't my own, and didn't know what to do about it. I tried losing weight on my own, and it was SO slow! I tried running, walking, and it seemed to take forever.
I discovered P90X at the end of 2009. My cousin's wife used it to help her lose 80 lbs. She looked amazing! I wanted to do whatever she did. I did it for 90 days, and loved my results.
After P90X, I did Insanity for 60 days. I felt incredible! After that I ran a 1/2 marathon just 11 months after our daughter was born. It was an amazing journey to go from feeling depressed, blah and like there was no hope to feeling like I could do anything again!
Determined Not to Feel Depressed
I was determined NOT to get depressed and go through what I went through the first time with our second baby. Unfortunately, I gained the weight again and got up to 196 lbs., but this time I knew exactly what to do. As soon as I was cleared from my doctor, I used Insanity to help me get back in shape. That probably wasn't the best workout to start with at 178 lbs. two months after having a c-section, but I really wanted to get my body back.
I lost 25 lbs. doing Insanity for three months. People started asking me what I was doing, and they wanted to join me! I love my results, and wanted to pay it forward and help other moms like me to feel and look good again.
Why I Became a Coach
My co-workers, friends and family members probably thought I was crazy for quitting my stable job as a Public Relations / Marketing Director to become a Beachbody Coach at home. I didn't quit my job right away. I started coaching in December 2011. I had a four month old, a 2-year-old, a job and two part-time free lance jobs at the time. It was hard for me to leave my little girls to go to work. I wanted to do something from home that I loved. So I started coaching on the side for several reasons.
- I wanted to inspire and motivate other moms to feel and look good again
- Working from home doing something I loved sounded awesome!
- The flexibility was perfect for me at the time
So I quit my office job in August 2012 to be a full-time Beachbody Coach. I've loved it ever since! I have a passion for helping other moms physically to look and feel good again. I also love helping coaches succeed financially to help others.
