Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started P90, I was overweight, not happy with my body, and ate junk food daily. I felt self-conscious and lacked confidence in my appearance. I did not exercise regularly and just felt unhealthy.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My health is what inspired me to change my life and begin my transformation journey. I finally realized and accepted that I needed to make some healthy changes to my life, or my health would seriously suffer. Having a family history of heart disease (losing my dad, uncle, and grandpa all to heart attacks under the age of 45), diabetes, high blood pressure, and cholesterol really scared me. I knew if I continued down this path, I’d end up with at least one of those conditions. My boyfriend, Adam, helped encourage me to start making healthy changes in our lives. My Coach motivated me to stay committed to the P90 program and healthy eating. I held myself accountable and, for the first time in my life, I was able to stick with my commitment!
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 before beginning P90 was sticking with healthy eating and regular exercise. P90 helped me overcome these challenges! Being able to get my exercise done in the comfort of my home definitely helped me stay on track with this program. Getting regular exercise also helped me want to eat healthy, clean, and whole foods. I even decided to become a Beachbody Coach during my experience with the P90 program, because I fell in love with the Challenge Group system and support that comes with it.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the progression of P90; every month got a little more intense. I also liked how it incorporated the whole body, sculpting, cardio, and abs. I liked having a modifier as well as different fitness/intensity level participants.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 30 pounds and over 20 inches with P90. I was able to keep up with the non-modified moves, and improve my cardio endurance as well. I also improved on my push-ups with P90. I am most proud of completing this program. I have always been a “quitter” in the past, and it felt great to complete this program.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since completing P90, I have moved on to PiYo and 21 Day Fix. I love the workouts! I have had several people notice my weight loss, and it feels good to have others recognize my hard work. I have become an Emerald Coach, and really love the products and programs Beachbody has to offer. Beachbody has completely changed my life for the better in just one year!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Challenge Groups have helped me reach my goals, because I don’t want to let myself or my new friends (in the Challenge Group) down. The women in the Challenge Groups have become a part of my life outside of the Challenge Groups. I created new friendships. I am supported and encouraged when I am going strong as well as when I need an extra push. Posting daily in the Challenge Groups is what keeps me accountable to myself as well as my fellow challengers.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach, Meghan, supported me on my journey by being a source of encouragement. She encouraged me to stay consistent in my exercise and nutrition. She encouraged me to become a Coach myself. She shared her story, which made it easier for me to share mine. She shared her life and supported me in my life. She has always praised my accomplishments, and shared my pure joy and love of what I have done.
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, ordigestion/regularity?
Shakeology definitely helped me in my transformation! I really can’t put into words just how crucial Shakeology has been for me. I drink it every morning after my workout for breakfast. Drinking Shakeology daily played a huge role in my success. I have gained more energy, reduced my junk food cravings, quit diet pop, have a more regular digestion, am in a good mood most days, am more focused throughout the day, and feel/look healthier overall.
