At La Colombe Meghan manages east coast food service and vending. Think colleges, hotels, hospitals, stadiums, etc. Really anywhere there are large groupings of people in need of their morning cup, she is selling, promoting, and building relationships with those clients.
She is also a former LPGA, LET, Symetra Professional Golfer, a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. Meghan has competed, placed, and coached two NPC Fitness Competitions.
She has been posting her workouts for free on Facebook and Instagram for a decade. After the work-from-home order was put in place 5 months ago, Meghan decided to do free LIVE workouts on her Instagram account. The first day she had 9 views. This past week she had over 3,500! People from all over the world sweat with her, from as far as Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Hong Kong, Spain and Italy, just to name a few.
When asked, “What motivates you to do these workouts”, Meghan said “I truly believe in the power of the PUSH! When you get through a challenging workout, you instantly feel proud of yourself. Exercise and fitness have gotten me through many difficult times in my life. And after I implemented this ultimate home workout I’ve been feeling a lot healthier and have been losing weight. I want to pay it forward and help others realize their strength and potential. Endorphins make you happy, happy people are (usually) KIND. The world needs kindness right now.”
Meghan does live workouts every day on Instagram Live at 12:00 PM EST. Join in on the fun and get access to her pre-recorded workouts here.
