This morning, I am beginning a training regiment with the most important challenger I've ever coached. I've know this person for over 15 years so it means a lot to me and I want to do an amazing job. I am putting everything into to this person because I am honored to be able to play a part in this person's life. Today, I am helping my son get started on his summer workouts.
When i started beachbody, Simon didn't think that home workouts actually could work. He lifted weights with his buddies at school and kind of dismissed me. He is already in pretty good shape from playing football the past 3 years but has really wanted to tone up. Now that its summer, he is like a lot of people and wants to go to the lake and not be embarrassed. So, he came to me a few weeks ago and asked if he could start doing some of the workouts he has seen me do. (not gonna lie..almost cried!) So, I am going to help him get started on a few things. He already drinks Shakeology every morning so the working out will be the next step for him. But this post isn't really about what he will and won't be doing and I'm not going to focus on the specifics of his workout. Instead, I want to stress that Beachbody is playing an incredible role in allowing me to spend time with a member of my family that I don't have a ton in common with.
Think back to when you were 15 years old. If you're like most, you probably weren't dying to hang out with your mom. I am close with my kids but still... This is a very unexpected and pleasant surprise. I got into Beachbody because I wanted to help improve and make positive changes to their lives and I've been fortunate to do this on a daily basis. But I never imagined it would let me spend time with one of my favorite people on the planet. He is dedicated to staying healthy and I can't wait to walk through this next part of our lives together.
Out of all the amazing things that I could do this summer, I am looking forward to this a lot. I hope you are able to enjoy the next few months of sun and summer activities confidently. I know the lammclan will be <3
