Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started the program, I felt tired all the time and was eating unhealthy foods. I would come home from work and want to sleep. I didn’t have any energy. I felt out of shape and wasn’t happy with myself. I would buy fast food, candy, and other unhealthy foods all the time. I knew I needed a change.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
What inspired me was I saw my cousin posting her workouts on Facebook and asked her what she was doing. So she told me about Beachbody and how much it is helping her. She told me how I could get into a workout routine that will help me gain energy and have a stronger and healthier body. Seeing her amazing results made me feel like it could work for me too.
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 I had when I started was feeling like I was too out of shape to start a difficult workout routine. My challenge was to overcome my mental obstacles. The modifier made the exercises easier, so I was able to work out throughout the whole video. The fitness trainers, Autumn Calabrese and Tony Horton, helped me achieve my goals, especially the motivating and inspiring things they would say. I know I am watching videos, but I pretend they are standing next to me and I don’t want to let them or me down.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
What I like about the programs I chose is how short and intense the workouts are. I like that I am trying new workouts and working out every day. I like that I am able to work out in my basement at home.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost 19 pounds and 10 inches, and I am still losing weight. I achieved a lot with the program, and I am proud of all of my achievements. My whole body is stronger, but my hips, legs, and butt are especially stronger. I also have a lot more energy now and don’t have to nap all the time like an old man.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed because I have more friends now, I eat healthier and want to work out all the time now, and I do work out all the time. I have more confidence and smile a lot more! I also find that I schedule out my day better and try not to waste time sitting around.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach got me into Beachbody. She told me how much it would help my life and she was right. She also helps me stay focused and cheers me on along the way.
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, or digestion/regularity?
Shakeology helped support my transformation by giving me all of my daily vitamins with no fat. It helped boost my energy and improved my sleep, mood, and digestion.2 I liked that I could add fruit or different ingredients to my shakes!
