Shane’s Life, Before

“I was insecure everywhere I went. I was afraid of people judging me because of my weight. I was made fun of throughout my entire life for being on the bigger side and I was tired of being referred to as ‘the fat kid.’

I felt like I was at a disadvantage in every aspect: I had little confidence in myself. I was paranoid that I was being judged harshly whenever I noticed anybody looking at me. I never liked to be in photos. I felt like I was trapped inside my body with very little hope of ever feeling good about myself.

Then one month after I turned 13 years old, my big sister was killed in a tragic drunk-driving car accident.

She was only 17 years old at the time and it was the summer before her senior year of high school. She was my best friend and I was devastated.

Fast-forward four years: I was 17 years old and in my senior year of high school. I lived with the constant reminder that I had lost my one and only sister.

I decided I wanted to live in honor of my sister. I wanted to work as hard as she did to achieve her own goals. I realized I would only be happy if I was happy with myself, but being overweight prevented me from being happy.

INSANITY seemed like the perfect guide to follow to achieve my body-transformation goal, so I ‘pressed play’ on January 8th, 2018.”

Shane’s Beachbody Transformation

“I noticed tremendous boosts in my physical ability and stamina as I worked through the program. Most importantly, I lost a lot of weight and gained muscle mass.

The physical changes were significant. When I began, I weighed 210 pounds at only 5 feet 8 inches in height.

But as the weeks and months went by, I was loving my new body.

I was so pleased with my results from INSANITY that I decided to purchase INSANITY MAX:30.

Shaun T motivated me to be my best self and dig deeper. I repeated multiple rounds of INSANITY, and with INSANITY MAX:30, I continued to lose weight and my muscle tone was phenomenal.

After one year and six months of completing multiple rounds of both programs, I lost just over 50 pounds. I currently weigh 158 pounds.”

Shane’s Life, After

“My quality of life is so much better since I started my transformation journey. I’m finally happy with my body, something I was not able to say just over a year ago.

People who I haven’t seen since high school barely recognize me and my relatives are astonished that I’m the same kid.

I finally have confidence that I am my best self, and transforming my body has led me to a better work ethic in school and a better attitude toward life.

Most importantly, I feel like my sister is watching down on me smiling and proud of the man who I have become since she passed away.

I owe my life to Shaun T and the crew that created INSANITY and INSANITY MAX:30. I could not have done any of this without them.”
