Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt I was in great cardiovascular shape, but always felt sluggish and tired. My level of fitness has always been high. I have completed an Ironman and ran 10 marathons, including the Boston Marathon twice.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I have always been a competitive athlete, but have never had an athlete’s body. Because of my poor diet, my body has never been as fit as it should be considering how much cardio exercise I do. I have also never lifted weights or worked on my core. When my wife told me about 21 Day Fix EXTREME, I was interested right away. The 30-minute workouts were appealing with the promise of results, and the eating plan seemed easy and not like your typical diet. At the end of 21 days, I was blown away by the changes that have taken place. I have more energy, feel so much stronger, and look like an athlete! My goal was to get more toned, lose belly fat, and be more healthy overall. I have had a desire to change the way I eat, but have never been big on dieting.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Eating! My eating habits, on the other hand, have always been pretty bad. I ate whatever I wanted and whenever I wanted to, which usually included a high level of processed foods. This nutritional plan has me feeling like a million bucks, and my core is so much stronger.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love the nutrition plan, and I love not counting calories. It’s easy and effective. I always felt satisfied from the food. I also love the 30-minute workouts. It’s the perfect amount of time, and they are killer workouts. Autumn is extremely encouraging. I love her positive attitude and that she does not accept quitting. I don’t see myself ever getting tired of her or her workouts!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I really saw my belly fat decrease and noticed more tone in my upper body. For the first time in my life, I have definition in my abs, muscle tone, and significant gains!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel more confident without a shirt on, and I know I am healthier. I feel so much healthier and always feel like I am eating plenty of food. Now the food is fueling my body, instead of hurting it! Everyone has noticed a change, especially my wife. People can’t believe how fast muscle definition has occurred.
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?
