A number of circumstances aligned back in 2014 that answers a question I often get asked; “How I came to be a Global Fit Ambassador”. As highlighted in blog 1 the demands of work, family and being 40 something had begun to catch up. Inspired by the quote below and with the release of Forever’s new F.I.T lifestyle program, I decided to decide.
“IT TAKES 4 WEEKS TO NOTICE YOUR BODY CHANGING, 8 WEEKS FOR YOUR FRIENDS AND 12 WEEKS FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. COMMIT TO BE FIT. YOU CAN DO IT.”
I had high hopes that I would notice positive changes in 4 weeks. If in 8 weeks others were noticing, that would be great too. In terms of the rest if the world….I hadn’t really thought that far!
My results were profound. During the program of healthy eating, structured progressive exercise and supplementation, I stripped away the belly fat and toned up muscles. This, for me was not to do with weight loss. It was about health and deciding to make a change before I fell in to the trap of feeling it was too late. My start and finish weight was identical. What had changed was my body composition. More lean muscle. Less body fat.
I recorded every workout, kept a detailed food diary and photographed the evidence as I went along. I was doing this for my own accountability, motivation and discipline, but felt compelled to share my results with the UK manager of Forever Living Products (whose plan I had followed).
Almost 13 weeks to the day, I got a call from the Home Office of Forever Living in the States asking if I’d like to become a brand Ambassador for the company’s F.I.T products. I had no idea what this would entail, but of course I said yes!
It is now my privilege not only to be an authorised business owner and seller of this program, but also an Ambassador for maintaining a healthy lifestyle following Forever’s principals. It’s over 2 years now since I completed the initial program. I’m fitter, leaner and stronger now than I’ve ever been and am loving the energy, fun and freedom fitness can bring.
