Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have always maintained a certain level of fitness. But before INSANITY MAX:30, I had stopped working out because of a knee injury. My cardiovascular fitness was weak, and I could feel my muscle mass decreasing. I felt a bit self-conscious about my mid-section when I took my shirt off.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I felt I needed a lifestyle change. I wanted to stop drinking beer on the couch, and become a competitive triathlete again. After my knee injury, I couldn’t perform like I used to, and it made me not want to work out and train at all. My wife is a Beachbody Coach and helped motivate me to start INSANITY MAX:30. It was tough at first; I had to wear a knee brace and modify some moves. After the first month of the program, I started to train in the gym and hit the road to increase my endurance and become competitive again. INSANITY MAX:30 gave me the strength, confidence, and endurance to begin a successful triathlete training schedule. I plan to do my first full IRONMAN at the end of the year! I feel that I am getting close to being in the best shape of my life.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was my knee surgery. I was off my feet for two months and unable to train for about six months. I gained 10 pounds and lost most of my cardiovascular endurance. Beachbody helped me to take control of my injury and fight back for my health. My wife and I have both completed INSANITY MAX:30 and feel great. Beachbody helped me overcome my injury, and Shaun T was an awesome motivator to keep us fighting for 60 days! Thanks, Shaun T!


What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Anything with Shaun T teaching, my wife and I will do! We liked the 30-minute workouts and high intensity!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 10 pounds, and sculpted my abs and chest. I am proud that I finished the program, even with my injured knee. My knee is stronger, and my left leg is almost back to full strength+.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have started training for my first triathlon this year. I had been unable to compete for the past two years. Beachbody and Shaun T have helped me to become competitive again.
