For Jennifer H, her “a-ha” moment was the moment she couldn’t play with her kids without running out of breath.
That was when she realized that she HAD to make a change for herself and her family.
And boy, did she make that change happen!
With the support of her Beachbody Coach and challenge groups, she followed the Portion Fix eating plan (now Ultimate Portion Fix), and finished 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix EXTREME, 80 Day Obsession, Transform :20, SHIFT SHOP, and LIIFT4!

Jennifer’s Life, Before
My weight has always been something I have struggled to get under control.
After having two children, I stopped eating healthy, I stopped working out, and I pretty much gave up hope that I would ever be in shape again.
When I couldn’t play on the floor with my children without being completely out of breath just from sitting down, I knew I needed a change.
November 12, 2018, was the heaviest I have ever been: 256 pounds.
That was that day when I made the change for myself and my family. I reached out to my Beachbody Coach and asked for her help; ever since that day, my whole life has changed.
In one year, I lost 110 pounds, 9 sizes, and 18 inches off my waist!
I have more energy, I feel stronger, toned, and I look forward to working out — which I never thought was possible!
My Coach, who I knew through a friend, has been with Beachbody for a few years. When I saw her results and the passion she has for this, I knew it was something I needed to try.
I saw how much of a family the whole Beachbody community is. It gave me hope that I could possibly have the same transformation with all of these people cheering me on.
I dreaded going to the gym; I would get anxiety at the thought of walking into a gym at 256 pounds thinking everyone was going to judge and laugh at me.
With Beachbody On Demand, I was able to dress in comfortable clothes in the privacy of my own house and not feel like I had to hide.
The trainers are so engaging and the inspirational talks that they give before, during, and after workouts are so inspiring. When I feel like I can’t do any more, they always get in my head and remind me why I started this.
I love that there are modifiers; when I first started, I couldn’t imagine doing a burpee!
The fact that there was someone doing a modified version of it to help me get through and complete the workout was so encouraging.
The challenge groups are people focused on one goal, following one specific program, and encouraging and empowering each other. It doesn’t get better than that!
In the past year, I drank Shakeology every day and it’s become part of my daily routine. Whether I drink it by itself with water or blend it with some frozen fruit, it’s my favorite snack of the day.
Energize helps me power through every workout — without it, I wouldn’t be able to get through my workouts some days!
Jennifer’s Life, After
One year ago, I was wearing a size 22 pant and so depressed about how I felt and looked. Beachbody transformed my entire being, not only my physical appearance.
I’m able to play with my boys in the park and run around with them. I feel comfortable in my own skin now and I don’t feel the need to cover up at the beach anymore.
I go into a dressing room and I’m excited to try clothes on because for the first time in a long time I am a size 8!
My husband has the wife back he met 10 years ago and my boys have the mommy they deserve.
I’ve shown my kids that it’s important to eat healthy and exercise — they’re learning and noticing the changes that I am making and that means the world to me.
I owe everything to Beachbody and all of the coaches who have helped me get my life back!
