I am a former gym rat.

Hi, my name is Laura Buzzell, and I am a former gym rat.

Home WorkoutI used to spend two or more hours in the gym 5 to 6 days a week.

I used to hate standing in line for the equipment that I wanted to use

I remember packing my shoes with me every day so that I wouldn’t have to step in the shower barefoot.

But I’m not gonna lie, I used to love going to the gym… But my life and my schedule are MUCH different now.

Now that I work out from home every day, it has been such a relief for my life and my schedule.

There are so many benefits m of working out at HOME…

– NO gym fees

– NO business hours

– NO lines for Equipment

– NO creeping eyes

– NO stinky locker rooms

– NO shower shoes required

LESS talking, MORE results

Rather than having to stick my kids in childcare, I can work out with them playing near me or when they are sleeping.

Rather then having to skip the gym when my kids are sick, when the weather is bad, or when life just happens, I can simply press play on my DVD player and get it done.

Before I had kids, I worked out in the gym two or more hours a day…

And now, after having two babies, I work out for 30 minutes or less every day and I am in better shape now than I was before!

This has a HUGE deal to do with the meal planning that we do in our challenge groups and drinking my Shakeology every day.

Less work – more consistency – more support – better results.

I am opening up sign-ups for our July challenge group this week, so if you would like to be one of the first to get your spot locked – contact me for more information!

It’s not about where you do it, it’s about what you do!

Less talking – more DOING – more RESULTS!
