Life has felt like a roller coaster ride for a while now.
Shannon has been riding that coaster, but has reached a new level of confidence in 2021!
Since joining BUFFnation in March, she feels amazing, both physically and emotionally.
“The BUFFnation family has given me the support to keep me motivated, and the way I feel has given me new-found confidence.”
The pandemic allowed Shannon time to slow down and reflect on her life.
“I have learned to stay positive and to enjoy the little things in life, the family time, for example and regular walks with my husband and daughter.”
Feeling busy? Has life been hectic? Shannon can relate - she is a busy working mom of a teenager! But she has remained committed and has given herself permission to take care of herself.
Shannon sets small goals each week. Meal planning one week, increasing her water intake the next, for example. Keeping these goals small and realistic is how she started. And now she builds on them to keep going.
She makes time and schedules her workouts. She also spends time in nature and often heads to the trails of Thunder Bay for hiking and exploring.
Working Out from Home
BUFFnation’s online platform has been a big contributor to her success.
“I love the online platform. I love that I do not have to get in the car and drive anywhere, it’s just a matter of getting my workout clothes on and closing the door”.
Shannon gets in 4-5 workouts per week! She attends live classes when she can. If her schedule doesn't align, she does a recorded class from BUFFnation’s library of over 800 classes.
“They really don’t call it the “no excuse” replay library for nothing!”
Our BUFFnation Community
We love to see Shannon’s sweaty selfies in our Facebook group! Her puppy, Maggie and even her cat, Charlie are often right beside her cheering her on.
“I love the BUFFnation VIP Facebook group where we can all share our wins and frustrations. Someone is always there to pick you up and get you back into the groove.”
“BuffNation is the best thing I have done for myself in years, I cannot thank Leslie and all the other amazing instructors for their support.”
Ready to make a change and commit to yourself?
Shannon’s advice: “Stop listening to that voice in your head that says you can’t do it. Trust me, you can! Leslie and her team have levels suited for all.”
“Believe you are worth it, because you are. You can do this!!
Shannon - thank you for being such a valuable and inspiring member of our BUFFnation community!
