I had been motivated by Gill’s posts on Facebook and Instragram for months before I reached out to her. She reached back in a big way. At first, not about the 21 Day Fix, but just about ways I could come out of the dark place I was in and into the light. Soon after, The 21 Day Fix did come up, and I decided to go all in. The first 21 days were life changing for me. I learned how to fuel my body with foods that I love, thus gaining a healthy relationship with food. I took 30 minutes for myself every day and it wasn’t long before the inches started coming off. Now, 4 months later I am the strongest, fastest, most confident, and happiest I have ever been. I did something I didn’t think I could do and it changed me.
Gillian’s weekly chats helped me immensely! She was always positive and encouraging. If I was having an off day, or even week, she knew exactly what to say to lift my spirits and get me back on track. If I doubted myself, Gillian would ask me questions to get me thinking and hold myself accountable for my actions. Gillian helped me create attainable and sustainable goals, which I have kept to date. I have always admired Gillian’s views on living a healthy lifestyle and look forward to continuing on my journey towards a healthy, happy life. Thank you Gillian!
Gill is amazing. She leads by example and is super supportive. I have been benefiting from her coaching and support for several months now and really appreciate the weekly accountability check ins. As with anything, you are more likely to succeed if you get a kick in the bum or have a coach in your corner cheering you on – this is exactly what Gill provides. It has helped me keep on track through the week knowing I had a call coming up – put another way, knowing I would have to be honest to Gill about eating like crap prevented me from putting the junk in my body in the first place.
I was driving today and realized that I feel so much better since starting this challenge that I’m going to do a second round. I’m going to keep drinking Shakeology – I’m sold that this program is a permanent lifestyle change for me! I just think it simplifies everything and so you really can’t have an excuse to not eat well during the day if you packed your lunch. That was always my downfall. I’d grab a scone and coffee because I wasn’t prepared.
I have known Gill for over a decade. Gill was a personal fitness coach for me for several years and during that time, I gained a tremendous amount of respect for her personal values and her ability to motivate people. When she invited me on Facebook to join her challenge group I was all in. With our homes now spread much farther than in the past, it made it impossible to see each other face to face. The Beachbody program was ideal to reinstate my motivation to get back into better shape. At 51 and pseudo retired, it takes a bit more than it used to however with Gill’s support and daily guidance on the web, it helped keep my eye on my goals. I find that the FB group is a great way to keep myself active daily and gain some great tips on how to stay healthy. Gill ensured all the information was relatable and easy to follow. When I hit a bit of a roadblock, and there have been a few, Gill was instrumental in me regaining my stamina and getting back to the program. I’m currently on my 3rd round of challenge with her and still find the information fresh and motivating. Gill is definitely living her calling as a coach.
