†Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Brianna is an independent Beachbody Coach.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was six months postpartum after having my first baby.4 I gained 65 pounds during my pregnancy. I was still 60 lbs. heavier than I had been before getting pregnant. I was tired, my self-esteem was lower than it had ever been, and I just felt plain unhealthy! I was so upset that I wasn’t losing the baby weight like people said I was going to. I was almost to a point of no return, I had almost just accepted that this was going to be my post-baby body. I thought I had tried everything. Almost hopeless.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
This was my last stop before giving up, I wanted to be healthy for myself and my family. I am a recovering addict, I’ve been two and a half years clean, I knew that if I could beat the disease of addiction and recover from something like that, that I definitely could commit to this program for my health. I just had to have dedication and commitment to myself for my future self. I knew it was going to take work just like recovery from addiction does, and I was ready to do something different! I’m so glad I took the leap of faith with my Coach!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Definitely fear of failure! I have tried other programs before that just didn’t work for me! I didn’t want to try another program that I would start out strong and then not see results, or have the support I needed! Beachbody helped tremendously by giving me an easy-to-follow plan, quick results to keep me motivated, and 24/7 support from my Coach and through Challenge Groups! I became a Coach too, so that I can help and inspire people the way my Coach and others have helped me! I’m so grateful for the 21 Day Fix EXTREME, Shakeology, and this company in general! Everyone matters, and they/we actually care about us all!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I chose the 21 Day Fix EXTREME! I loved it because of the amazing meal plans and portion control containers; the 30-minute workouts were perfect for a busy mom like me. It was easy to follow and gave amazing results! I love that it has completely changed my lifestyle and the way I think about food!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’ve lost 45 lbs. and counting! My energy levels are at an all-time high (even when running on only a few hours of sleep with a teething baby). I’m stronger than ever, I can actually see muscle definition, and it is something that I have made a lifestyle! My confidence level just keeps rising, and I’m back to my happy, healthy self, but even better!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am in a consistently better mood; I’m way more positive. I treat myself and my body like the work of art that it is. I’m able to play with my daughter without getting tired immediately, and I’m being given the chance to help others change their lives too! My quality of life is forever changed. I hope to inspire others with my transformation and I hope to help as many people as possible improve their lives as well! I’m on a mission now, I feel as though I have found my purpose in life. All thanks to Beachbody and my God!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It helped so much! It helped keep me accountable and thriving! They pushed me when I didn’t want to push myself! When I didn’t want to get my workout in, I saw other challengers posting about their awesome workout, and it pushed me to get mine in as well! They keep me motivated and feeling like I can conquer any of the roadblocks in my way!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She checked in with me regularly, despite being pregnant and about to go into labor! She keeps me motivated and inspired daily! Liz is amazing! She answered any questions I have/had quickly and effectively! I’m blessed to have her on my side!
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, digestion/regularity?
I love my Vegan Chocolate Shakeology! It helped with my energy, my mental clarity, digestion, and helped keep my sweet cravings at bay!2
