The Cook - Dan
I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing had it not been because of the success that I had through using Beachbody programs and products for the past 4 years. Over the 4 years I've lost as much as 30 pounds and am currently in the process of gaining some muscle mass! My life was changed when a doctor told the guy on the left that he was borderline obese! That was my turning point where I was sick and tired of been sick and tired. My changes didn't happen overnight. I slowly lost some weight, but really accelerated my progress when I joined one of Laura's accountability groups. These products work and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone!
True story... Dan and Laura have helped me improve my life in ways I never planned or considered.
At first, I thought I was simply joining a community of fitness lovers as a way to improve my own physical health. What I have been blessed with is a renewed sense of team and comradery I didn’t even know I was missing! As a college athlete, I loved joining forces with like-minded people who were working toward a common goal…I didn’t realize how much that meant to me until I found it again with my Coach and Team Fully Fit.
Not only do I get to work on my fitness goals in my own space and time with the virtual support of dozens of others, but I get to extend the opportunity to other busy moms and women just like me! My passion to help others feel as amazing and energetic as I do, for themselves as well as their families, has lit a fire within me to pay it forward.
As a side effect, I’ve also learned how to grow my own business on the side while working full time as a primary care PA. It has allowed me to give up my secondary part time job and be home more with my kids and hubby… Who knew the initial desire to “get my body back” after having kids would lead to BOTH an uplifting community and an opportunity for financial freedom? I can’t thank Dan and Laura enough for guiding me to better health and a community filled with love and positivity, as well as teaching me how to coach others to do the same.
While my original journey with The Cook & The Coach was physical, the more important transformations for me the past four years have come from an emotional, spiritual and mental perspective. There is a culture of constant learning and growing when you are in a relationship with these two.
From nutrition, to living on purpose, to remaking my life by understanding my why and honoring it through dedication to my priorities, to becoming a leader. The continual growth is unbelievable!
And the learning continues!! One of the greatest things my life as a coach on team Fullyfit has brought me in the past few months, is to laugh MORE. To stop taking life so seriously, and toss away the strict routines & schedules to find greater joy and purpose in each day to:
Laugh at myself... Laugh with my hubbie... Laugh with my kids... Laugh at whatever life throws my way!!
The Heidi before coaching took life WAY to seriously and was always jumping to the next task on her list. She hardly took time for herself, and didn't feel connected.
The Heidi I am becoming enjoys a slower pace, runs the race that is best for her, focuses on self care each day and on connecting with others she loves and serves.
These two have created a community of people living their best lives. They support, challenge and inspire daily. This team they lead chooses purposeful living over chasing perfect. These two amazing people love life and they want everyone they meet to experience the same.
So thankful to have them in my life.
Support and inspiration. Dan and Laura tirelessly provide their support through guiding individuals on the journey to health. No matter what your goals are, these two offer their dedication to helping you achieve them. Meeting you wherever you are, and challenging you to discover the you that may be hidden or stuck in old habits and thinking, these two bring real talk and the knowledge necessary to begin and stick with a plan. The knowledge I've gained in being part of their groups has been key to pursuing my own goals, one step at a time. I can't say enough about my respect and love for Dan and Laura as a team❤️
