I had been struggling with my weight for a long time when I saw Denise and noticed how great she looked. I had to find out how she did it. She told me all about Beach body and the 21 day fix and it caught my attention. I didn’t do anything right away but watched her progress through Facebook and when I saw her again the next time, I decided to give it a try…I signed up for 21 day fix right away and joined her next challenge group. Her groups are so much fun and so motivating!!! Denise is a great coach and always there to help and support you!!! The groups help you stay on track and get you through the tough days!!! Recommend Denise and her groups to anyone looking for a change in their life!!quote2

Denise, the way you manage the private groups to make everyone feel comfortable and supported, while tackling their individual challenges of improving their health and fitness is amazing. You manage to get groups of people that truly care about each other, and actively participate in keeping us motivated. In addition, your tips, quotes, advice and efforts at getting us all answers in a timely manner are greatly appreciated. I know that it’s because of you, these monthly groups, and the BeachBody programs, that I have been able to lose almost 30 lbs in 5 months and continue to maintain 3 months later.quote2

In June 2015 I joined one of Denise’s challenge groups in hopes to change some of my bad eating habits, get stronger and to get myself motivated again. I felt as though I had nothing to lose, and Denise really motivated me to give it a shot as she had had such great success with the program as well. In just over 3 weeks I remember stepping on the scale and realizing that I had lost 12 pounds. I couldn’t believe it! Shakeology worked great as it gave me tons of energy throughout the day, and helped me feel more focused. Not to mention it tastes great too! Since the challenge group, I have been able to use many of the tips and clean eating habits into my every day life. I continue to incorporate the portion control containers into my meals throughout my work week and I find that doing the 30 min exercises each morning have helped me become stronger and more energized throughout the day. Thanks to the 21 day fix and Denise’s challenge group, I always know I have a great system I can rely on for my health and fitness!quote2

Thank you Denise! Without feeling deprived or hungry, I lost 6 pounds on my first 21 Day Fix. I love how the program focuses on healthy living that is sustainable – by eating a variety of healthy, real food and exercising for 30 minutes each day. Thanks again for all your support, information and encouragement. You are an awesome coach and inspiration!quote2

I’ve known Denise long enough to realize writing this first line makes me old. Through these years I have witnessed her conquer the worst that life can muster, not only to survive but thrive through the experience. And whether it was innate or forged from such adversity, Denise emerged as an indomitable spirit, courageous to the core.

So when I ran alongside on her first failed attempts to revitalize her fitness regime, I knew that it would only be a matter of time until Denise’s tenacity and determination overwhelmed her doubts and apologies. Soon enough Denise shattered her wall of indecision and discovered her raison d’être for health: the confidence to struggle towards success; the bravery to push through the sweat and pain towards endless progress; and that touch of fanaticism that drags one out of bed on a freezing rainy December morning to run with a nut like me.

Yet, unlike most who selfishly keep their health epiphany hidden on solitary farmland runs or boasted only among cliquey gym rats, Denise has shared her journey and her infectious enthusiasm with countless others. The community she has formed has allowed real people to draw from each other’s experiences and share in one other’s success. Denise, as always, has found a way turn her trials into beautiful transformation.

And through it all, or perhaps because of it all, she still has the heart to find time to run on cold, wet mornings with an old friend like me.quote2
