Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started using Beachbody products, I was very overweight. Every day I woke up, I would always look in the mirror and wonder when I was going to change and live a healthier life. I never felt good about being overweight and always felt down with low energy. One of the worst parts was when I would go to the XL clothes section and just wonder how it would feel like to wear smaller-sized clothes.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Watching the Success Stories of other people on the infomercials gave me motivation. I knew that if their lives changed, mine could change as well. When I saw INSANITY MAX:30, I knew that was the workout that would really change my life and make me feel better than ever.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I had before beginning INSANITY MAX:30 was that I always felt depressed and mad at how overweight I was. Within a month of beginning INSANITY MAX:30, I felt more alive and full of energy, especially the moment I bought clothes that weren’t XL but medium. If Beachbody didn’t exist, who knows what could have happened to my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Shaun T would always be so motivating and push me to my limits. The workouts were really fun and intense 100 percent of the time.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The results I got within months were amazing. When I first started MAX:30, my MAX OUT time was about three minutes. During the last months, my times were between 15–25 minutes. The achievement I’m most proud of is the amount of weight I lost, which was a total of 51 lbs. I also went from a size 46 to 32 in jeans.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I live a healthy life every day. I do my workout and plan to do many more workouts. One of the biggest parts to losing the weight was drinking water every day and no sugary drinks. So far I have kept that going since last year.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Coach Mario would always be active with team members. He would give us motivation to work out and provide some daily workouts to do after we did our Beachbody program.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, or digestion/regularity?
When I drank Shakeology, I felt full of energy and more alive during my workouts.2
