Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was always tired and never had any energy to do anything before starting Body Beast.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I got sick of my wife yelling at me for bringing home cheesecake while she was working on losing weight (haha). Really, it was my wife who was always eating healthy and losing weight. Then one day, she took a picture of her biceps and sent it to me with a caption that she had bigger guns than me. I knew I had to do something to catch up.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I was always eating junk food like chips, dip, and fast food. Following the Body Beast meal plan helped me start eating the right foods in the right portions to kick my junk food habit.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I like the structure of Body Beast and that it covers everything you need to get the results you want, from the meal plan to the workout schedule.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m in the best shape of my life. I’ve never had this kind of muscle definition, so that’s what I’m most proud of (aside from surpassing my wife’s bicep size). I’m also proud that I stayed consistent and stuck with the entire 90-day program.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed in that I have more energy and I actually enjoy working out/lifting weights now. I look forward to my workout each day, and I’ve never, ever enjoyed working out before.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach is my wife, so having her support has been amazing. I felt like we were a team conquering each day together. It’s definitely brought us closer. Working out together enabled us both to stay on track and feel supported in our journeys.
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 kept me feeling full and away from junk food. I never had any cravings or desire to go back to eating unhealthy foods the entire time throughout the program.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I have GERD (severe acid reflux with a hiatal hernia). I have been on a prescription medication twice a day for the past few years, and Shakeology and healthy eating have reduced the need for my medication+. I only take it on an as-needed basis now — maybe once in a two- to three-week periodo. That is huge for me!
