Here is Shannon’s story:

The picture on the left is me about a month after we had our first baby. The picture on the right is me about 7 months after our third baby was born.

After our first baby was born (picture on the left), I remember feeling so tired, out of energy, depressed, lonely and wishing there was a way that I could feel like myself again. I also was sad about going back to work.

I went back to work at an office two weeks after she was born. I remember going to work and looking at my computer crying because I wanted to be home with our baby.

I knew there had to be another way, but I didn’t know what it was.

My cousin’s wife did P90X and lost 80 lbs. I saw her results and wanted to do what she did! So I went to and ordered it. A coach was assigned to me. I didn’t know him before.

I did the program everyday for 90 days. Then I did Insanity right after. I went from 199 lbs. the day our first baby was born down to 137. I felt amazing, and was in shape enough to run a 1/2 marathon. I wanted to pay it forward and tell EVERYONE about how I felt because I finally felt like me again!

For the next two years I continued to use Beachbody workouts, but I didn’t try Shakeology because I thought it was too expense and didn’t think it would work. I told everyone about the workouts, and people ordered them from Beachbody or a personal trainer I knew.

In August 2011, we had another baby. This time I got up to 196 lbs. instead of 199. It was better, but I still felt the same feelings, and I still had to go back to work after she was born.

I jumped into Insanity and was determined NOT to get depressed this time! I lost 25 lbs. and then found out about Beachbody Coaching. I thought it was the best idea since I already loved the workouts, had awesome results, and I love helping people.

I jumped all in with coaching in December 2011! I was determined to earn $1,000 a month so I could quit my three part-time jobs and stay home with our girls who were 4 months old and 2 years old at the time.

I made that goal after 5 months of being a coach because I helped as many people as possible. My main focus was on helping people not selling anything and my business grew.

After about 5 months, I let what people said get to me, and slowed down. I stopped believing in myself and there was a point when I thought about quitting.

In April 2013, our family had moved to another state, my husband and I had hit rock bottom financially since we were both out of work living in Arizona, and I knew I needed to do something. I went to a Super Saturday in Arizona with my friend Trisha Neece-Cumming, and decided to go ALL IN despite not having any mentors and not sure how we were going to make it happen.

Long story short, once I decided, people came into my life who wanted to mentor me and help get our team off the ground. I started doing more personal development, tracking my contacts everyday. My income doubled in the first 6 months, and continued to grow. It went from about $1,200 a month to $7,300 a month (my highest month as a coach) in about 2 1/2 years.

It has definitely been a journey being a coach! It wasn’t a straight shot to success. I had to work on myself the most, and then focus on helping others. I went through A LOT of failures to see success. Most people said, “No” to me including good friends and family, but for the ones who said, “Yes” it was worth it because their lives changed for the better.

It’s never been about selling anything or making money. It’s been about truly helping others live their best life and helping families relieve financial burdens.

I’m excited to be your Leader of the Week this week to teach you exactly what I did to grow our Beachbody business and help our teach become one of the top .01% of the company in just 4.5 years.
