Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started my Beachbody journey, I was overweight and had back problems. I felt unhealthy, looked unhealthy, and I wasn’t satisfied with my body.
What inspired you to change your life?
One day while I was at the beach, it simply hit me that I wasn’t happy with my weight or my appearance. It was at that moment that I realized that being healthy and exercising was a choice, and that if I was going to make a change, I needed to commit to doing whatever it took. Along the way, I completed P90X, INSANITY, ASYLUM Vol. 1 and 2, and Body Beast.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program?
Before beginning, my main problems were motivation and commitment. Now that I’ve done multiple programs, I feel great. But, what’s even more important is that, along the way, exercising became a part of my life. It’s no longer something I do because I have to. It’s something that I do because I enjoy doing it.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My eating and exercise habits have changed, my thinking has changed, and my body has changed. But the most important thing that has changed is my belief in myself. Through my journey, I proved to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to if I want to achieve it bad enough. And that’s something I’ll take with me for the rest of my life.
