My Buddies (2)

Hi! I'm Matt Stonewell, I discovered Team Beach Body when I was in the hospital four years ago laid up, high on morphine feeling miserable with Crohn's disease. A Turbo Jam commercial was on TV that inspired me. So I ordered it from my hospital bed. I was so desperate to feel healthy and fit once again. But... When I got back from the hospital, I didn't do ANYTHING with my Turbo Jam
Hi! I'm Matt Stonewell, I discovered Team Beach Body when I was in the hospital four years ago laid up, high on morphine feeling miserable with Crohn's disease. A Turbo Jam commercial was on TV that inspired me. So I ordered it from my hospital bed. I was so desperate to feel healthy and fit once again. But... When I got back from the hospital, I didn't do ANYTHING with my Turbo Jam series! I did work out daily with my TotalGym workout center and ate much more consciously. But, I felt that doing anything Beach Body related was queer or kind of "hokey".
Fast forward to April, 2011. I was still feeling miserable with Crohn's disease (but I managed to get it under control through moderate exercise and nutrition) and all the other medications my doctors had me on. My wife had been diagnosed with stage four, squamous cell carcinoma (four cancerous tumors in the neck and throat). Both my wife and I were out of work due to physical setbacks. I had been looking for a job (just over broke) but it was extremely frustrating because it seemed I was either, over qualified, or the job did not pay what I was worth, or I just couldn't handle it physically in the long run?!
I received an inquiry from Team Beach Body through careerbuilder.com. And I thought, "what is this? Team Beach Body is hiring wellness coaches"???
Ever since that stint in the hospital, I had subconsciously been getting more and more knowledgeable about health and wellness. I consciously had been wanting to become certified as a Nutritional Consultant or Wellness coach. But, I was tapped for money to pay for my schooling and was hoping for a way to get involved with helping people get healthy for my living.
I'm a 'serious tire kicker' when it comes to network marketing programs and also nutritional supplements. Some of them can be total crap! So, being the pessimist I can be, it took four more months of reviewing what Team Beach Body had to offer. Then one day I was puttering in the WOWY section of my TBB site and it struck me like lightning?! It was after watching several videos about Shakeology, P90x and Insanity when I realized, "It only takes 90 days to get in the shape of my life AND I could make money while helping people"!!!
DUH!!! This was finally a no-brainer that it was a great option instead of having to pay over $5k and a year of schooling to start helping others with nutrition and wellness!
So here I am, I found a TBB coach, Jason Roberts, who matched my needs as a coach and far beyond once he introduced me to what I firmly believe to be one of the 'BEST' Team Beach Body groups in the country, Team Motiv8. Now I'm motivated 24/7 with no excuses to not make my goals happen. All the support and tools are in place!!!
If you've been in a constant cycle of frustration whether it be with chronic pain, depression, obesity or issues from your past that keep holding you back. I can definitely help you (and our team will too) in changing your current state while getting you back on the road to living a fulfilling life. Add me as a buddy and I'll be in touch a.a.a.p.
If you've been on the fence about Team Beach Body, it's time to STOP and just decide to do it! It's only 60 - 90 days to start and then from there, you will not want to turn back!

I've always been able to get fit within a four to six week period. I'm at the point where I can still do it in this amount of time. But I'd wanted to go further in toning up, consistently eating right and then bulk up just a little more. I don't want to look like a refrigerator walking through the door with no neck. I just want to wake up in the morning and feel the energy and acceptance we all deserve. And this is VERY attainable with Team Beach Body! We're on our way folks!!!
