Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was always tired. I worked out a little using some weights, but was never consistent. I remember shifting the weights on my pants all the time to get “comfortable” when my belly fat would get in the way. I didn’t think I looked that bad, but my kids were starting to make fun of me – sometimes the truth hurts!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I am in my early 40s and started to think, “What am I going to look like if I keep my current lifestyle up?” Seeing everyone around me with all sorts of health issues also sparked me to do something before it was too late.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I was experiencing asthma attacks and thought it would be difficult for me to do the cardio activity. 21 Day Fix made my lung capacity improve greatly – I haven’t had an asthma attack in a couple of months!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I thought Autumn was great! She was very consistent in the exercise routine; that made it easy to follow along. Other programs I had used were inconsistent in the time of the exercises, and Autumn always talked about how far we had to go. It made it easy to finish, especially when I wanted to give up.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have really slimmed down my waist. My kids now comment on my stomach and how they can see my 6-pack (or as my daughter says, 4-pack with a little pudge left behind!). I also love the fact that I haven’t had asthma issues for awhile.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am much more confident. We took a vacation to Disney last week, and I had no problem being at the pool in my swimming trunks and feeling pretty good about myself!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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?
My current Coach is my wife, and she had started Shakeology with the 21 Day Fix. I did the 21 Day Fix with her, but was not using Shakeology. A couple of weeks ago, she let me try some of the extra shake that she had, and I felt so much better. That was when I decided to sign up for Shakeology, and become a Coach myself. I have been using Shakeology for a couple of weeks and it is amazing how much energy it gives you. It makes it easier to get through workouts, and the entire day, without feeling fatigued.2
