Fears & Hesitations

Hey everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to talk to you guys about fears and hesitations about starting a new fitness program. It seems a lot of people have them and I was right there too! Starting something new is SCARY! Especially if you’ve tried things in the past that haven’t worked. Below are three of the most common fears that I hear and some of my thoughts on how we can get past them.

i can do this

One of the most common fears I hear is: “I don’t have the SKILL/I’m not good enough!”

If you’re not already familiar with Beachbody programs, you might be a little intimidated right now. You might be thinking that it’s all about lifting weights or doing really complex moves. So not true!! Beachbody literally has a program for EVERYONE! These programs span the entire range of the exercise spectrum. There is everything from low-impact yoga for beginners to hip-hop dance to heavy lifting for the advanced athlete. If you can think of it, chances are Beachbody has it!

If you’re feeling unsure about your skills, talk to me. Contrary to popular belief, my job as a coach is not to SELL. I am here to listen to your needs and find the perfect program for your lifestyle and fitness level. I understand that there isn’t really a “catch all” fitness program. Everyone is unique and has different wants and needs. You CAN do this!! You are capable of so much more than you think!


invest in yourself

The second most common fear/hesitation I hear is: “I don’t have enough MONEY!”

I get it. I was right there with you!! This was my #1 excuse to not buy a Beachbody challenge pack. I couldn’t justify spending the money on myself (but, I sure could justify that daily Starbuck’s run!) and I was skeptical of the results. I finally reached my breaking point and spent the money. Little did I know, that one-time investment (and some hard work) would help me to regain my confidence and become healthier than ever. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.

The best way to give Beachbody a try is to grab a challenge pack and join a free support group. You’ll get an awesome fitness program, a month supply of Shakeology, access to On Demand, a group of like-minded people on the same journey, and the one-on-one support of a Beachbody Coach. That’s just the beginning! The VALUE that challenge packs provide is incredible! You will be given the tools to take back your life, just like I was!

The best part: You don’t have to order anything on a monthly basis (unless you want to) and there is a money-back guarantee on EVERYTHING. I understand that even $1 is a lot of money if you’re not sure it’s right for you. If you give it a shot and aren’t happy for any reason, I will personally help you get your money back.


you have time

The most common hesitation I hear is: “I don’t have enough TIME!”

We’re all busy! Trust me, I am with you on that one! It is hard to find the time to do all of the things on our “To Do” lists much less make time for ourselves. But, it is so important that we do it. Exercise is not only great for our bodies, it does amazing things to our attitudes and overall well-being! You deserve to look and FEEL great!

Time is one of the main reasons I LOVE these workouts. Not only are they just 30-40 minutes, but I get to do them at home on my own schedule! I never have to worry about packing a gym bag or commuting to and from a gym. When I used to go to the gym I spent an hour MINIMUM, either in a group exercise class or torturing myself on the treadmill. But, I get better results now in 30 minutes, from home, than I ever did at a gym! And since we have a private group of women who will be going through the same journey you are, you’ll still get the group support!

Food for thought… A 30-minute workout is just 2% of your day!


All you have to do is take the first step! I’ll be right there with you to help you along the way! Let’s do this!!! Message me today to get started!

XOXO,  Cristie
