HMP: What drew you to start up with Beach Body?
Kari: The convince of working the program into my life and my schedule I work a full time job and I’m a mom. I love the flexibility to do the workouts on my time and whenever, wherever I have internet! It was never my intention to become a wellness coach. I needed something MORE and something that fit my life. I loved the group of women who needed MORE too! I don’t really make much at this time at my little side gig but what I do get from it is knowing that I am helping enrich another women’s life!
Being a mother to a preteen girl, I want to be an example and show her a healthy lifestyle. There is just so much pressure to look good but for all the wrong reasons. I know it all starts with me being a strong women and putting my insecurities behind me. I want to create a healthy lifestyle and mindset for my children. I need to be the one to set that healthy example.
HMP: Where do you find your support system?
Kari: In like minded women who also want to put their health and wellness a priority. Ladies that I’ve met on this wellness journey, they hold me accountable and push me. I get to do the same for them! It’s so important who you surround yourself with. I know there are a lot of people in my life that just don’t get what I’m doing! That’s okay because I have this amazing support system!
HMP: What do you enjoy doing in your time off?
Kari: I love watching my daughter, Anslee, do her thing on the softball field! That’s where we currently spend most of our time! I love being with my family and my sweet golden doodles. We are all about Georgia Football and just recently went to the game! However, my husband is an Alabama fan. We live in a walking community where there are some phenomenal restaurants and shopping. I love walking to town for the shopping and to grab a bite to eat! My husband, Scott and I enjoy kayaking!!
