Transformation Story

Nikki_01A bit about me. I am prior service Army for 9 years. I joined when I was 17 years old. Somewhere between that and 2004, I graduated college, graduated ROTC, applied to multiple dental schools and was rejected and finally ended up working full time for the Iowa Army National Guard. I moved from Iowa to Washington DC area in 2004 and was diagnosed with MS in 2005. I was an Army wife for 8 years and now am a single mom of an amazing son, named Dylan. We are 100% blessed with all God has given us and continue to thank him and rely on him daily. With that said, I became a certified fitness instructor in 2006-2007 time frame with the idea that I would keep myself busy and challenged while my husband was deployed. It has turned into so much more than that. Fitness is my passion. The way it makes me feel is beyond words. I love teaching others to enjoy that same passion, as well. To make it a habit of something they love to do vice something they have to do. I started my fitness transformation back in 2008 with P90X. It changed my thinking of how I workout. I never thought lifting would do as much for me as running did, and it did so much more. I learned to lift. I had never known prior to that. Then I moved on to Insanity. Insanity is what gave me my sexy back after having my son in 2009! I would invite other mama’s to my home gym and we would workout together! I dabbled in other programs off and on but always found myself going back to P90X and Insanity! I moved on to T25 the moment it came out in June of 2013 and loved that program more than Insanity!! The results I had were amazing. I had not been able to get the love handles off since my son, 4 years, and they were gone within the first 3 weeks. Then, P90X3 came out in Dec 2013 and my body became CHISELED like never before. Then Insanity Max:30 and 21 day Fix.. The programs keep coming and coming!!! With my 7 year journey with Beachbody, I have accrued many programs and many nutrition guides. I cook out of those guides daily. For years I have been. I think it is VERY important with someone that has an auto-immune disease to stay POSITIVE, ATHLETIC, and HEALTHY with their food intake. I have been able to achieve all I am by using these above programs. Shakeology was introduced to me in 2012 and I have been drinking it for breakfast ever since. If I find myself low on money for the month, giving up ANYTHING but my Shakeology is always my decision. You can not put a price on my health. This is why I am so passionate about Shakeology and about their programs.  I want to tell the world about how you too can change the way you think about exercise and nutrition by just giving it a chance. Once you do, you will never go back to going to the gym and wondering what to do while you are there, again! You will never feel dull, tired and lousy with Shakeology in your nutrition.
