Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have found the answer! Before these programs, I was wondering how long my knees would last. I had no program. I had no reason to stay in shape. I had no goal. I had no plan to go by. I had no incentive. I had no idea where I was going or how to get there. I started with P90X and did that four times, then INSANITY, then P90X2, Body Beast, PiYo, P90, INSANITY MAX:30, and Hammer & Chisel. What Beachbody does is many folds. It has a calendar plan and a method to reach your goals. You have a website to enter what you have done, and you also get to see what others are doing. You motivate others and they motivate you! You feel better as you succeed, and you see the results. That might be in your size of clothes, or the scale you step on, or the fit test. You see results and this makes you feel great! Also, Beachbody has a great drink called Shakeology that helped me.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My Coach, Perry Tinsley. The infomercial looked like it would be a fun thing and a big challenge. My wife was right, Beachbody is a wonderful company that helps you get into shape, lose weight, and become fit. INSANITY is perfect for when I am on trips with the airline and have no workout weights — you just start the program and get fit.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I had was not having a plan. Not having motivating folks around me. Not knowing if I was really doing the right thing or how to know if I was succeeding. No plan. No goals. No idea. This is what Beachbody does. The workouts have a plan. They have a goal. They have a method that works by providing a plan, Coaches that can answer questions, Coaches that motivate, and Coaches that make sure you can succeed. Plus, Beachbody has a method for you to make some money while becoming fit. How could anything be better than this?
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I like the fact that it is only a 22-minute workout. Not an hour or longer. Perfect. And if I want more of a workout, I can do the Core 2.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost some weight. I brought my blood pressure down. What is not to like? I am proud of the weight loss, and my doctor was impressed with the BP loss. Here I am at 65 and I went from doing eight chin-ups to 13 chin-ups unassisted. I could not do this many in high school! Thank you Beachbody!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Other people have noticed how fit I am at age 65. I feel great and like a walking billboard for Beachbody! My wife, my kids, and all my friends notice the changes. I love talking to others about how great these programs are and how they changed me for the better. I want to help others obtain the same results. Beachbody helps me help others! Folks in the airport notice my Shakeology shirt.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
My Coach, Perry Tinsley, is a great Coach in starting folks on Challenge Groups. He constantly helps all of us by supporting us, answering questions, motivating us, and showing how the programs can be accomplished. His Challenge Group keeps us informed how everyone is doing. Folks post questions and successes that keep us all locked in, and keep us wanting to keep going. We see others as they struggle and as they succeed. The Challenge Group is a great way to stay in the game. His Challenge Group has us talking about drinking Shakeology and posting a motivational poster or quote and how we did that day. Even if we have setbacks, we are all there to support each other.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach, Perry Tinsley, is the best. He keeps me motivated to do my best and keep at my goals. His podcast videos are the best. He answered my questions about what programs my wife and I should do. He makes sure my questions are answered. His Facebook information is always on the mark. I vote him the best Coach. Thank you Perry. Thank you for all that you do. You are my hero. We see him struggle with the programs we are all doing and that makes us all realize we are there with him and have the same issues he does. This makes us all realize struggles are normal. He shows us how to succeed. He motivates us to become Coaches and help others get fit and make some money. He has an infectious style that makes us all want to do our best.
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?
Helps with weight control, and cholesterol.† I found that by taking snack-size baggies on the road, I can have a great meal at any time, in any location. Many others are asking what I am drinking. This is one of the best supplements that money can buy. This has become my one meal that I look forward to because I know it is perfect and helping my body. I have a sweet tooth, and this helps control the problem. There are times in the hotel on my business trips where I need a little snack, and a quick Shakeology is the perfect, healthy answer.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
Shakeology has helped my cholesterol and helped keep my weight under control.† It also keeps me from snacking on the wrong things.
