Hi I’m Shanna! And, this is Shanna Corum Body & Soul! Thank you for joining me here and I look forward to sharing my story with you. I am a Beachbody coach. What that means is that I have a desire to assist you with your fitness goals and objectives. I certainly do not claim to be an expert. In fact, it’s only been two years since I started my journey.
Health is my passion. I am a wife and a mom and although healthy eating has always been important to me and to how I am raising my children, fitness has not been one of my objectives. I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years. Historically there are struggles with obesity in my family and I have always wanted to end that trend and not pass poor eating habits on to my children. As some people have struggled with over-weight issues, I have struggled trying to maintain my weight. And honestly I didn’t look healthy because I was so slim. There was not much muscle on my body. “Be very careful, then how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16 NIV
Fitness is my motivation. When I was approached with the programs from Beachbody I first thought I don’t need that. But, I was wrong! My body was craving muscle. I began drinking Shakeology and started my first workout program. In no time at all I began gaining muscle and my physique started to change. I looked healthy and I was fit. This has created a passion in me to help other people who have experienced struggles with their physical appearance. And, what I have learned is that we all struggle with something because none of us is perfect. Our outward appearance is a reflection about how we feel about ourselves inside. “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10 NIV
Christ keeps me centered. My faith is very important to me. God has given me a gift of connecting with people. My husband laughs because all of my friends are “my best friends”. Ha! I love people! I want to deeply know the people I surround myself with. I want to know their motivations, their struggles, and their desires. Transparency is intentional. How can we develop a strong bond and encourage one another if we are not open and honest with each other? I believe that is how I am able to help other people. I want to know your story. I want to help you get to your potential. I want you to feel about yourself the way Jesus feels about you! “We are surrounded by a great cloud of people whose lives tell us what faith means. So let us run the race that is before us and never give up. We should remove from our lives anything that so easily holds us back. Let us look only to Jesus, the One who began our faith and who makes it perfect” Hebrews 12:1-2a The Message
Again, I’m a wife. Tim and I have been married for almost 16 years. He works in the hospitality industry. We have been blessed with 3 amazing children! Isabella is 15 and she is our beautiful fashionista. Isaiah is 13 and he is our eager sports fanatic. And, Illianna is 10 and she is our lovable, energetic go with the flow child. And last but certainly not least is Gigi! She is our playful pup who thinks she is just another one of the kiddos! My family drinks Shakeology daily, we eat clean and we work-out with our friends: Tony, Shaun T, Chalene, Autumn. Dan, Rach and more! “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Consider joining me for this journey! Get passionate about your health, motivated by fitness and allow the blessings of Jesus Christ to abundantly feel your life! Joyfully, Shanna
