PlyoJam Co-Founder and COO Stacey Beaman gets real about taking risks, getting over fear and self doubt, and getting out there and doing things that might feel scary. In this interview she talks about her own struggle to find a form of fitness that worked for her and how she was afraid to get out on the dance floor for fear of not looking a certain way. Stacey is a huge advocate of body positivity and self love and wants every woman and man to toss their fears and insecurities away and do what makes them happy. Stacey feels that far too many people let life pass them by without doing the things they want to do because they are too afraid, or they don’t feel like they meet the “criteria.” When Stacey first stepped onto the dance floor she was extremely overweight and out of shape. She had body image issues and felt terrible about herself. In fact, it took her months to work up the courage to finally step on the dance floor. However, she fought through those fears and realized it wasn’t worth it to continue punishing herself. She decided to rise up against her insecurities and fears and her journey has been one of strength, growth and empowerment. Stacey’s goal is to pass that strength on to others who have been holding themselves back. No one should feel they don’t deserve happiness. No one should miss out on the things they want to do because they don’t look a certain way. No more waiting. The time is NOW. Love your body, be healthy, be strong, be brave.
