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.

This past spring, something very cool happened to Jillian Henderson.
When she pulled out an old pair of shorts from high school (from more than 36 years ago!!!) - they fit.
“I feel less bloated and more energized than before,” says the now 52-year-old Jillian. “I walk taller. I like what I see when I catch my image in a plate or glass window”
Jillian has been working hard.
Since joining BUFFnation last spring,
she’s made some incredible lifestyle changes,
including focusing on healthy nutrition, cutting out alcohol,
and developing a regular home workout routine consisting of 3 to 4 LIVE or replay classes per week.
Even during the summer, (which is a busy tennis and motorcycle season for Jillian),
she stayed committed and on track by making use of BN’s massive replay library. She kayaked, played tennis, and even did workouts from her cottage.
As a result, Jillian says she is:
Cinching her belt tighter.
