About Me


Vanessa McLaughlin, The Butterfly Effect
 Welcome!

My name is Vanessa McLaughlin. I am an Independent Beachbody coach, a marketing and communications specialist, and a fitness instructor. I taught fitness classes and was a personal trainer for 20 years, working my way through college and graduate school, but it grew into much more. I live in Pennsylvania, with my husband, two sons, and a dog named Indiana Bones.
I’ve followed my husband’s career all over the world: New York City, North Carolina, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Morocco. I was lucky enough to teach fitness classes and personal train wherever we lived. However, when we settled in one place, I returned to working full-time September 2014, using my degrees in communications and law.

After 10 years of having a flexible schedule to meet the needs of work and family, full-time work suddenly thrust me into a schedule where time for me came last, if at all, and I never felt I had time to work-out or cook a healthy meal.  The pounds started creeping on, and I felt exhausted all the time and out of control in terms of exercise and food. 

The P90X was my first Beachbody program. I loved Beachbody programs, but I was still missing something: support and accountability. This is the one thing I changed, and it changed EVERYTHING! I joined a challenge group for the the 21-Day Fix this past October and fell in love with the program. I learned how to fit exercise into my crazy, busy schedule, do some simple weekly healthy mean planning and suddenly I started to feel changes in my lifestyle. So, I signed on to be a coach shortly after the 21 days ended. I felt back in control, learned that if I had an "off" day, that was OK, and just keep to my new habits.  I feel so passionately about this program, wanted to help other busy people feel like they could also carve out time for themselves, feel healthy and achieve this success.
Being a Beachbody Coach was the next step in my personal career journey. Teaching fitness classes and also having been a personal trainer, required me to motivate others to exercise and love what their bodies could achieve. As a Beachbody Coach, I get to motivate others to meet their nutrition and fitness goals, while my marketing and communications background helps me make sure I can effectively communicate based on each individual's needs.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my husband and two boys, reading, exercising and blogging!

The other Beachbody programs that I have experience with are P90X, Brazil Butt Lift and PiYo. My goal is to get lean defined muscles! My body is a work in progress, improving one day at a time!
