Meet – Julie Voorhies
I joined team beachbody in January of 2013 just to receive the 25% discount. The reason I joined: I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was at my all time heaviest weight without being pregnant. I had recently decided to be a SAHM after concluding 15 successful years of teaching Kindergarten (13 yrs & 7th 8th grade Science (2 yrs). However, once I made the decision to stay at home I lost all benefits and salary, I felt worthless. I decided that I needed to change. I knew there were no quick fixes (I had already tried many different products and gimmicks). I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but was willing to go all in for 6 months and see my results. In the first 3 months I lost 25 pounds and truly felt EMPOWERED. I gained energy, self-confidence, happiness, and a sense of personal achievement. I couldn’t help but share my results and invite others to join me. I knew that if I could do it ANYONE could do it. I wanted other mos that felt stuck, depressed, and unhappy to know that there is a way out. BELIEVE in YOU! When you finally come to the realization that it’s NOW or NEVER I encourage you to choose NOW. I loved surrounding myself with other like minded individuals that helped me through my journey! I made the BEST decision of my life!
Ten months later and down 35 pounds I decided to dive in and learn what it would take to take a new found passion to the next level. I wanted to work part-time on creating a full-time income so that is what I did. I knew the I loved the way that I felt and wanted to help more people enjoy the same feeling of empowerment, self-confidence, pride, learn to love yourself again, and feeling important again! The feeling is AMAZING and I want you to have those feelings too! Don’t get me wrong, I am not perfect and I still have struggles! Knowing that I am capable of overcoming any obstacle just by BELIEVING I can has changed my life. I am much healthier, more fit, more confident, and more balanced than ever before.
I am passionate and committed to helping other live their dreams too. You don’t have to feel stuck, you don’t have to be depressed, you don’t have to feel worthless all you need to do is INVEST in you! I truly believe if you carve out one hour a day for yourself, you can give more to others around you. I want to help you learn how.
I began by inviting others to join me on this journey. I began by sharing tips, recipes, my struggles, and my successes. I promised to inspire, motivate, and be their accountability partner. I never dreamed in a million years that I would be a part of helping someone in their fitness journey, here I was, helping others out of pure enthusiasm! I found myself telling someone what worked for me, what I’d tried, what I’d heard someone else say worked for them, and giving encouragement. People helping people – from all around the country – working towards one common goal: Reversing The Trends of Obesity: One Relationship at a Time!
I am always looking for people to join my team – I’d love to hear from you if you think you might be interested in joining my team!
