Welcome back my friends to our weekly Women In Business Series.
This week I am proud to chat with a dear friend about her new business venture into health and wellness, and doing it all to live her best life, while fighting cancer.
Christy Schmieler- Your Next Beachbody Coach
When I started this series I wanted to have women featured who inspire others to make that jump into starting their own business, or simply just to have a story, that will make others feel not only inspired, but empowered to believe in themselves. This weeks edition will do just that for you my friends, I promise.
Let’s meet Christy….
Who is Christy Schmieler?
She is a wife, a daughter, and sister.
She is a dear friend of mine, and to countless others.
She not only empowers others, but gets up everyday and empowers herself. She leads a healthy life, and wants to help others to do the same.
Christy is giving the fight of her life to beat the battle with stupid cancer. ( yes, i say stupid, because can you actually think of a better word? I mean one that I can publish of course)
So how did she decide to help stay healthy and beat cancer in a way that would inspire others? She became a BeachBody Coach.
BeachBody company is the creator of the nation’s most popular fitness and weight loss solutions including P90X®, INSANITY® .
So, you are probably asking, why did she become a coach?
When I asked her to tell me a little more here is what she had to say:
I became a Beachbody coach because I was already utilizing Shakeology and I had purchased a few programs, although, they were admittedly sitting on the DVD player collecting dust. With drinking the Shakeology regularly, came a little extra energy and a little reduction in my junk food cravings. I had a REALLY rough November from a whole-body rash that came from the chemo I was on. I was in a massive amount of pain and once my skin healed I decided to take December off from treatment so that I would feel well over the holidays. Once I started feeling better, I started working out regularly. I dusted off my TurboFire and got down to business! I loved the way I felt and after a month I started to feel the transformation in my body. I would actually get cranky if I didn’t workout!
How is this business helping you to inspire others?
I thought back to all the times that so many of my friends and family told me how I inspired them with how I was handling chemo. If I was inspiring people in my persistence through treatment, I could certainly help inspire people to workout, right? Coaching came very naturally to me. I LOVE to help people feel better, plus it gives me accountability in my own workout regime. I certainly can’t ask someone to do something if I’m not willing to do it myself. And if I’m willing to do it while going through chemo, ANYONE can do this!
What are some of they ways that Beachbody can help others get back into, or start for the first time even, a good workout regime and eating healthier?
So many people are juggling long hours and a tight schedule with their families, and Beachbody recognizes that. They’re developing a few workouts catered to the time-crunched and two of them were recently released. Focus T25 is a series of 25-minute workouts, and the 21-Day Fix is a 3-week program of 30-minute workouts along with portion-controlled eating. It comes with containers for your protein, carbs, fats, veggies, fruits, etc. and basically if your food fits, you can eat it. If it doesn’t, save it for tomorrow. The results have been AMAZING with it and you can lose up to 15 lbs. in 21-days…and you can still have wine and chocolate! (I’ll be starting my first Challenge Group on April 6th with the 21-Day Fix)

All I can say to you my readers, without getting all mushy mush, is that knowing this truly strong women, gives me the inspiration everyday to live life to the fullest.
