Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started the 21 Day Fix, I didn’t exercise at all. I felt tired and it didn’t take much physical activity for me to start breathing hard. I felt embarrassed about my weight.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was inspired to change my life because I wanted to do more physically active things with our five-year-old daughter and our newborn son. Overall, I just want to show our kids how to have a fun and healthy life.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was consistently eating clean and exercising. The 21 Day Fix made eating the right things easy and the Challenge Group with my Coach, Jeremy Landers, made me accountable to get my workouts in every day.

Just knowing other people would see if I didn’t do the workouts was motivation enough to get my workouts done. I enjoy good healthy competition and peer pressure to achieve success.
