Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting the 21 Day Fix program, I had no energy, was full of toxins, couldn’t sleep, and all I did was eat junk and sugar. It was horrible. My health was horrible. I barely had the energy to put the DVD in the DVD player, let alone do a workout.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Noticing the horrible habits I was passing on to my family, and how we were all overweight and out of shape, hit me like a ton of bricks. My children are young teenagers and they were developing horrible habits that I saw coming. I could see them being me in the future. I didn’t want them to waste their 20s and 30s like I did, being out of shape, overweight, and into horrible habits health-wise. My now Coach, but also lifelong friend, started this journey and introduced me to it. I fell in love with it and am now doing it as a business myself.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenges I faced were meal planning and my addiction to sugar and junk food. Within two days of following the eating program, I completely changed the way I thought about food. I couldn’t believe how fast my body took to the clean eating. It was as if I was a sponge and it was water. I could physically feel my body craving healthy food and thanking me after I ate it. It happened very fast. Doing a challenge help me put the tools together for meal planning, exercise, support, and accountability and that’s exactly what I needed. I’ll never look back; it’s the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The meal plan is absolutely fantastic, the container system is awesome, and the workouts are targeted for different body areas every day, which just shapes your body.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My energy is absolutely through the roof, my fitness level is better than it has been my whole life, and I’m in love with clean eating. It has changed everything for me. I now weigh what I weighed when I graduated high school in 1991, but I look better than I did then. Can you imagine? I’m 42.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
A better question would be, how hasn’t it changed? My health is better, I’m sleeping better, and my fitness level has improved. My family’s health and fitness level have improved, and their healthy eating results have blown my mind. I’m happy and excited, I have energy, I look forward to going to work… I could go on all day. It has changed everything for me.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It combined all of the things that I’ve needed and been searching for for over 20 years that no other program I’ve ever seen has. Accountability, information, and the step-by-step instructions on how to follow the program properly were 100 percent the reason I did well and I’m doing well.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She explained the program and prep very clearly and was very supportive and encouraging.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
Shakeology is life-changing. I believe it’s mostly what has helped change my health and weight, besides my exercise and clean eating of course. Also, I take Energize, Recover, and Hydrate and those products are amazing.
