Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had lost some weight earlier in the year just by changing my bad eating habits and running (attempting to run lol), but I had plateaued for months while going to the gym. I was working my butt off there (or so I thought) and getting extremely frustrated. I decided to stop spending money at a gym and spend it on a proven results product. I had heard of P90X and was very intimidated, but then my Beachbody Coach introduced me to P90. I decided to make the commitment and order the Challenge Pack. Buying P90 was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Looking at all the pictures of myself over the past 15 years and being more embarrassed every year began to weigh heavy on me (no pun intended). My kids were getting older (and faster), and I wanted to be a part of everything they do. I knew I couldn’t continue to treat my body like a garbage disposal.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I have tried just about every diet and quick fix in the book before, but it wasn’t until I had a structured, easy-to-follow program that I finally found success. P90 was fun, challenging, and motivating all at the same time. I knew if I just did the workouts every day and followed the program as it was designed, there was no way I could fail. I drank my Shakeology every day and did my workout with Tony Horton every morning. I started seeing results very quickly, and it was so encouraging that I knew there was no going back! Completing P90 feels like one of the greatest accomplishments of my life! I can’t wait to take on my next Beachbody Challenge… I already have my eyes on INSANITY MAX:30!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved how P90 was so easy to follow and Tony Horton made every workout fun.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Losing 28 pounds was an amazing accomplishment, but seeing abs, biceps, and other muscles that I never knew were there made it an incredible feeling. I have never had a “defined” body before and truly never thought I could. I’m going to be proud to go to waterparks with my kids this summer!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I not only look and feel amazing, but people recognize it every day. I’m told my entire attitude toward life has made a positive change and I agree. I have so much energy for my kids and wife. I can honestly say Beachbody, Shakeology, and P90 have changed my life! I’m a Beachbody lover, believer, and promoter for life!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I did not participate in a specific P90 Challenge Group. However, my Coach encouraged me to keep posting my workouts, pics, and progress on Facebook. It helped me feel accountable and special.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Team Beachbody Coach kept me encouraged and motivated every step of the way!
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?
I started drinking Shakeology immediately when I started P90. I attribute a large portion of my success to Shakeology. It made me feel full, energized, and clear-minded.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I have self-medicated myself with over-the-counter heartburn relief/indigestion medications for over 10 years. I literally couldn’t sleep without waking up in the night several times to take antacids. Since drinking Shakeology, I haven’t taken one pill or any antacids!2
