Perla del Val - Beachbody Coach & Graphic Designer


Perla del Val is a Beachbody coach and freelance graphic designer. Like many, Perla struggled with her health after life changes took a negative toll on her body. After marrying her husband Luis and moving from Mexico to the United States, Perla found that she struggled to have children. Eventually, fertility treatments allowed their dreams of having children to come true, but a combination of overeating, sleep deprivation, and taking care of babies added stress to Perla’s life. Perla says of this time, “I was officially in the worst shape of my life and hated the way I felt, always tired with endless back pain. I needed to move my body.”

Perla decided to set a goal at a common time and create a New Year’s resolution. She decided to begin working out and eating healthier. After going through an 8 week program, she felt better and had less pain. Perla learned how important diet is and how it can affect how you feel. Due to the success of her exercise program, Perla decided to become a Beachbody coach in order to help others reach fitness goals. Today, Perla continues to exercise and stay healthy, and tries to help others to do the same. She understands that it can be hard work, but says, “This is a journey, not a destination. It won’t always be easy but it will always be rewarding".

Thanks to her changes, Perla lives a healthier life. If you have made a change in your life to be healthier, feel free to submit your story to Deb Schmidt.
