Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
This was over the course of a year. I just had my daughter two weeks before the first photo was taken.4 I was feeling down for gaining 65 pounds with her. I worked out my whole pregnancy, but I still managed to gain so much.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I wanted to get back to where I was before pregnancy and to feel good about myself again.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Feeling out of shape. I was in the best shape of my life before pregnancy, and not being able to just bounce right back was my biggest challenge mentally.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I have always loved INSANITY but I knew I had to go back into things slowly. I started out with CIZE since my doctor approved it two weeks after my C-section.3 I then moved onto 21 Day Fix EXTREME, INSANITY MAX:30, 22 Minute Hard Corps, FOCUS T25 (when I was busy and did not have a lot of time), and BOD! I love to be able to switch up my workouts depending on my mood or what I had going on that day.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Fitting back into my old clothes again and being a role model to both of my children is the greatest feeling.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel more confident and back to me.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Being in a Challenge Group helps keep me accountable and to stay consistent. I am pretty self-disciplined, but there are days I just want to say “not today.” Watching everyone else post in the Challenge Group got me up and moving.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She just had a baby as well and knows how hard it can be to get back into feeling like yourself again.
Tell us about your experience with Beachbody On Demand. If applicable, how has it helped you achieve your goals?
I am a stay-at-home mom, and I have a husband who travels during the week for work. I also have a one-year-old and an eight-year-old daughter, who is in a competitive sport nine months out of the year. They keep me busy, and having Beachbody On Demand is right there for me. I don’t have to pop in a DVD; there are a lot of short workouts to choose from on my busy days; and I can take it wherever I go. I am also known for my “workout ADD.” I have stuck with programs, but I like the option to do something different and switch things up. BOD has given me that option. I love the sneak peeks and the fact that all my workouts are right there for me.
