Let’s start this a few months back, when my friend Beverly posted in a Coach Facebook Group about ShaunT HIMSELF coming to St Louis to do an Insanity LIVE training. I was like….Well…..I haven’t actually even done Insanity, and not real sure it is something I could sell OR EVEN TEACH FOR THAT MATTER, in my small rural gym. But I believe in going to live training events for my business, and anything that you just want to be better at, so I decided to sign up. Not really sure if I would like it, or EVER teach it.
But come this past Saturday morning, I got in my car and drove to St Louis. Excited, scared, nervous, having anxiety about my jacked up knee and how much I would have to modify, and very unsure of where my life was actually heading after this day. But I chose to do my best to keep an open mind and a positive attitude.
WELL….Let me tell you……Saturday changed my out look on MANY things!
THE FIRST being, this man is AMAZING!
Even MORE AMAZING than I thought before. I have always adored him and loved his dance programs, and to hear him speak, has always been one of my favorite things about going to Coach Summit. He just has a way of speaking that touches me to my core. And Saturday was NO EXCEPTION!
By the end of the day, between him and the AWESOME Chip Hoffa, Master Trainer, I was EXHAUSTED! But I was also a Certified Insanity LIVE Instructor!
AND even more importantly, I had a revived feeling of excitement about not only the future of my studio and fitness classes, but of my own health and fitness journey. I CAN DO HARD THINGS!
I felt ALIVE!
And I even felt more ready to start the new program I started Monday, LIIFT4 with Joel Freeman on Beachbody On Demand. And so far, I am SORE AF, but I am LOVING it! Remember I am a Fitness Professional, and we are all a bit twisted! LOL!
So if you are local to me, watch my schedule for Insanity LIVE classes as early as the first week of August, which you can find on My Google Calendar! And even if you are not, keep tabs on my fitness journey and what I am up to next on IG – @bodybybrendat or on Facebook, you can find me at Body By BrendaT or Phoenix Fitness With Body By BrendaT.
MAKE TODAY GREAT!
ON EDIT….I wanted to add this post from my Facebook Page to help share with you WHY this Saturday meant so much to me.
ody By BrendaT is with Shaun T.

I got to meet this AMAZING man yesterday. And if you know me, you know that even with this once in a lifetime chance, I sat back away from him, and nearly didn’t talk up when I had something I wanted to talk to him about. But when he said,”One more question.” To my surprise, my hand shot up! 😨😱😰
NOW WHAT? CRAP! I HAVE TO SPEAK.
Yes, I talked to him. Yes, I got emotional. Yes, he gave me some AWESOME advice. But when Shaun T is talking to you and during that conversation, he says TRUST, and puts his right arm out, and then BELIEVE and puts his left arm out displaying his tattoos of those words, it feels like a huge hug of faith and belief in a way I had never felt before.
I have been in the room several times for talks from him where he did that to the audience. But yesterday, he did it TO ME! He was directly addressing Me!
I am bawling as I type this, because it meant so very much to me ❤️
I battle believing in me often. But yesterday something changed.
I went to Summit this year hoping for a renewed energy. As fun and informative and uplifting as it was, that <5 minute conversation with ShaunT did more for me than anything has in the last few years. It gave me back the feeling that even though I have struggled, I can still BELIEVE IN ME!!!
