Step 1: Team Beachbody

_insert your name here_

They will make the switch.  This will enable you to work with either one of us as we both work together.  Again, it doesn’t matter if the coach listed is Jo-Anne or Michelle, we work together.


Step 2: Facebook  (optional)

Be our  friend on Facebook if you would like so you can keep up with things I have to say and I can keep up with your daily happenings.  Also, it makes it easy for us to keep in contact with each other.  If we haven’t been chatting via email, please send me a Friend Request let me know it is through OverActive Life so I know to contact you regarding coaching.

Here is the best part,  we have a closed Facebook group called “Live an OverActive Life” that we will add you to once we are friends.  All members of our team are welcome to be a member of the group so we can all ask questions, talk about working out, nutrition or anything on our minds.  The group is very active, the people in the group are friendly, motivational, funny, and just in general a great group of people.  It is the best part of our team.  The group has over 400 folks in it, it is WAY too much fun!

Click here to be friends with Jo-Anne and click here to be Facebook friends with Michelle.

Again, just let us know know you found us on OverActiveLife and want some free coaching or just have questions or comments.
