Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was always very active. I thought that I had a pretty healthy lifestyle. I am a backpacking guide in the Grand Canyon, as well as an international singer, so I was always either hiking or dancing to keep my weight off. This winter, I came home to Missouri to be near family and a traditional home. I started gaining weight as I wasn’t living that active lifestyle anymore. Before I knew it, I gained 20 pounds, and I didn’t know what to do!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My life changed when my Coach invited me to join the Challenge Group. I had heard so many great things about the program. I wanted to be one of the people that were brave enough to share their story with the world and just go for it! Before I knew it, the pounds were melting off like butter! I am nowhere near being what I used to be, but I am hoping to be after my third round of 21 Day Fix EXTREME!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge was myself. I was afraid that there was never any way for me to be as small as I used to be. I struggled stepping on the scale and noticing that the numbers wouldn’t budge. Eventually, I had to realize that that number on the scale didn’t matter. My inches were getting smaller, and my energy was through the roof! My life changed in 21 days, and I look forward to many more rounds of 21 Day Fix EXTREME!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love the variety of workouts! I love the cardio, as well as the lifting. I feel like I am not only losing weight, but shaping my body. I have never seen abs on my stomach like this before, and this is only the beginning. I can’t wait to see what the next round has to offer.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am proud of my abs mostly! I joke and say I have D’Angelo abs now (haha). I am also very proud of how lifted my glutes are, and my arms are looking fabulous. I am more proud of the fact that people are noticing a change in me. I had my first 400 likes on a picture when I posted my results on Facebook! That’s amazing!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since my first Beachbody program, I have decided to be a Coach. I am trying my hardest to spread the word! I want everyone to join me! I have started a Challenge Group with interested women looking to buy the program, and I hope someday I can do this full-time. To say that I ever dreamed of being a saleswoman would be a complete lie. But now that I have done this program, I am all in. I want to help everyone that I can see the results I have seen.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
We all held each other accountable for what we were going through. When we wanted to cheat, we posted about it. When we saw great results, we posted about it. We were posting meal ideas, and all kinds of random things relating to fitness just to remind ourselves that we were becoming a part of something bigger!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was coming up with different hashtags we could use to promote the program. She offered incentive programs for us to be actively participating in the group. Overall, she was a good role model and support system in the process.
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?
Shakeology has to be the yummiest snack/breakfast/lunch ever! It makes my life so much easier, and I feel like it replenishes me after all of my hard workouts.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
Cravings! I have the worst sweet tooth, and Shakeology is like drinking a brownie smoothie everyday!
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
I did. I was hoping to lose more weight, but of course, I think I just had the wrong idea. I am even more impressed with the results I wasn’t expecting to get, so I can’t really complain! Once again, I can’t wait to start round two; this is so addicting.
