Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before Body Beast, due to a busy schedule, eating healthy just wasn’t a priority. I would work long hours just to come home, eat a huge meal, and go straight to bed. After several years of this routine, it really started to show. I was adding notches to my belts! I starting wearing baggy clothing around my friends to hide my stomach. I finally found myself trying to suck my gut in during pictures. So I decided something needed to change and that’s when I began Body Beast.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
While watching TV one day, a Beachbody commercial aired advertising Body Beast. I liked the idea of using free weights but did not have time to go to a gym several times a week. Body Beast seemed like a program I could do in the convenience of my own home with equipment I already had, so I went for it.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Eating right was definitely my biggest obstacle. I am a picky eater to begin with, so ditching all my favorite foods for health food was tough. However, Sagi explained that nutrition was key. To be a Beast, I had to eat like a Beast. So I did. The combination of eating clean and doing the workouts to the best of my ability proved to be successful.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The best part for me was getting a killer workout right in my living room. I never got the results I did in a gym that I did following Sagi, because I never knew what to do in a gym. Eventually, I memorized the workouts and knew what was coming next. I could quickly and accurately go from set to set, increasing my weight each round, which made it very enjoyable and easy to challenge myself.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Over the course of 90 days, I lost 20 pounds, five inches off my waist, and dropped four pant sizes. I decreased my body fat percentage and my chest, arms, and legs are bigger. I am most excited about having huge arms. I’m not afraid to take my shirt off anymore!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Hearing my friends tell me I look great is always great to hear. Fitting into clothes I have not worn in some time is also great.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
