I'm really excited to share another amazing coach success story with you all this week! Katy Ursta is my brand new Diamond Beachbody Coach on the team! She is one of the most driven, motivated and passionate people that I have ever met. It's no wonder that she is an amazing coach!! And I also have to mention that she just isn't a Beachbody Coach, she's a mom, wife, and full time teacher!! Check out her story!!!
When I started my first Beachbody program, Insanity, I was slowly putting the weight on that I actually lost very
quickly after I gave birth to my son.
Although I felt that I was an active person, I never thought of myself
as an athlete. My routine of running and
lifting wasn’t giving me results. I
noticed my eating habits were changing for the worse. When I started to slowly gain weight, I just
kept eating. I often thought, “well I
went for a run this morning, so it doesn’t matter if I eat what I want.”
I avoided mirrors and made
judgments about myself in each picture I was in. My negative emotions about myself began to
seep into my personal life and my professional life. I was depriving my son of a happy mom and my
husband was really taking the brunt of my insecurities. The scale defined my entire day, my entire
life. That number told me how to feel. That
number had complete control of my every emotion: good and bad. Imagine: A number having complete control
over your happiness.
I originally started my journey
with Beachbody like so many others. I
watched the infomercials. I saw people
getting results. Their before pictures
didn’t look edited. They looked like
me. They looked like my husband. I
wanted my husband to have a wife he could be proud of, and I wanted to be a mom
that had energy to play with her son. I
really wanted to look good and feel better. I ordered Insanity, and I didn’t look
back. I made it a nonnegotiable. I would complete Insanity and I would get the
The results I saw were definitely
not limited to a number on the scale.
I’ve lost inches, yes. I’ve
gained a ton of energy, absolutely! But
the achievement I am most proud of is the physical and mental strength that I now
know I have. I accomplished something
that so many others are afraid to try.
It’s so amazing what you can do when you let go of your insecurities and
coaching to make myself accountable. I
worked really hard to get those results and I really wanted to maintain
them. I also wanted to help my husband
meet his own goals. I realized that we
were both seeing results without paying a membership to a gym. This Beachbody thing was working for us! When I signed up as a coach, I asked a couple
friends to join my challenge group. I
realized that the daily accountability and motivation helped everyone in the
group get results. Not only was I able
to help others, but they were in turn helping me.
There are still days that I
struggle with my body image. After all, I spent the last 20 years avoiding
mirrors and making judgments about myself in pictures. However, as a coach, I get access to an entire
network filled with other coaches who have been there, who get what it’s like
to struggle, and most importantly, who understand how the power of helping
others makes you become better person. I have met so many wonderful people
through coaching and have reconnecting with friends I haven’t heard from in
years. And more importantly, I have the
opportunity to positively impact someone’s life. How awesome is that!
In the last few
months , I’ve not only transformed my body and health through programs like
Insanity, Asylum, P90X, and Les Mills Pump, and Shakeology but I feel as though
I have a much more positive outlook on life.
I make a conscious effort to seek the good in people. I smile more.
I laugh more and I appreciate all of the gifts I’ve been given. Life is so precious and I wasted a lot of
time caring too much about what others thought and not enough time focusing on
what really matters: my family, my health, and my happiness.
I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to pay forward what
Beachbody has given me: confidence,
health, energy, and comfort in my own skin:
