Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started doing Beachbody programs, I was struggling with my physical and emotional health. I had my third knee surgery last year. I struggled with frequent headaches and back pain. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I would get winded when I walked up the stairs. I was tired all the time, and life was overwhelming. I did not like what I saw when I looked in the mirror. I struggled with confidence and self-esteem. I was really out of shape, having all kinds of health problems, and felt lousy. Life was hard!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I decided to begin my transformation journey because of my kids. I have two daughters, and I wanted to model healthy behaviors for them. I also wanted to be able to play with them and keep up with them without having back pain or getting winded. I want to live a long, healthy life and be around for them as they grow up. I was also motivated to change the way I was feeling. I was tired of feeling lousy. I looked at the people who were working out and eating healthy, and they all seemed to be cruising through life. I wanted that for myself.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge I faced before starting the program was feeling like I couldn’t do it. I stay super busy, so I didn’t feel like I had time to fit the program into my daily routine. I also didn’t think the program was going to work. I felt like I was beyond repair and nothing I did was going to help me. I was overwhelmed with the idea of trying to fit regular exercise in, and even more overwhelmed by the idea of planning my meals and sticking to a diet. I didn’t feel good, so I self-medicated with junk food, which continued to compound the problems I was having. The program helped me overcome my self-doubt. I built confidence with each round I completed. The fact that it was only 21 days made it easy to stick to, because I only had to stay focused for 21 days. The short 30-minute workouts made it easy to fit exercise into my daily routine. The nutrition plan was not a diet; it was proper foods in the right amounts. It was super easy to follow, and I didn’t feel deprived.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The workouts are fun, engaging, and only 30 minutes. The nutrition plan is easy to follow and sustainable long-term. I loved the results I got in 21 days! Autumn is very inspiring and keeps me moving, even on days I didn’t feel like working out. I liked the challenge of the EXTREME workouts. I had done several rounds of 21 Day Fix, and I loved that this program took it to the next level.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Since my start date in October of 2014, I am proud to say that I have lost 56 pounds and 29 inches. I am proud that I have become an example and inspiration to others around me. As a result of my decision to start my transformation, a number of my colleagues have decided to join me in building the best versions of themselves. People comment all the time about how much change they have noticed in my energy levels and how I look. I am proud of the person I have become, both physically and mentally. I have built strength, confidence, and self-esteem. I am also setting a positive example for my daughters and those around me.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel amazing! I have energy, stamina, confidence, strength, and endurance to get through my day and to keep up with my girls. I am more productive at work. I am a better husband and father. I am in a better mood, because I feel better! Completing this challenge has given me the confidence to take on other challenges. For example, I decided to go back to school to get my administrative license, and I am only a couple months away from being done. It is so much more than a physical transformation. Completing the challenge has given me the mindset I need to push myself personally and professionally. My life has done a complete 180!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I have participated in Challenge Groups every month since October 2014. The accountability and support in those groups have been invaluable in helping me reach my goals. I was working out by myself, but I was not alone. I had a community of like-minded people to encourage me. It was great to see that others were facing obstacles and challenges like I was. We share ideas on how to overcome those challenges. With each challenge we overcome together, we build confidence that we can face future challenges. Sharing this journey with others was a great way to stay on track. I knew I was accountable to the group, and that kept me going on days I was struggling.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach is also my wife. She started by being an example. I watched what she was doing, saw the results she was getting, and wanted to join her. I was resistant to trying the programs, but when I saw the positive impact they were having on her, I wanted to give them a try. She checks in with challengers regularly and provides a high level of support. She helps challengers choose a program that is right for helping them reach their unique goals. She is intentional about taking time to encourage them and support them in any way she can. She is positive, encouraging, and has helped a lot of people who have experienced transformations similar to mine.
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?
The 3-Day Refresh really helped me to kick the sugar cravings, and helped me realize that I didn’t need as much food as I thought I did for survival. I felt great at the end of the three days, and it helped me appreciate clean, healthy foods. Shakeology has been a game-changer for me. Immediately, I noticed an improvement in my mood and an increase in my energy levels. It helped me kick my Mocha Frap addiction, and reduced my cravings for sugary treats. It was amazing! My digestion has improved. My mood and mental clarity are radically different. I can feel a difference if I miss a day. Luckily, I haven’t missed many days in the last year.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
After starting Shakeology, I immediately noticed a difference in my mood and energy levels. Over the last year, I have had Shakeology almost every day. I went from feeling lousy all the time to feeling great all the time.
