Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt self-conscious, tired, slow, and very stressed. I had an endless cycle of fads, self-promises, etc., but could never stick with it to get in shape.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My 10-year-old son telling me in the pool, “Dad, you really need to lose some weight.” Realizing that at 41, I needed to make some transformations and get healthy for myself and my family.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Finding a program that worked and that I could stick with and enjoy. Beachbody’s Body Beast changed me. I loved it. Beachbody’s website, support, my Beachbody Coach, and Shakeology all helped me find what I’ve been missing. The nutrition guide and program were incredible.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The mix of weight lifting and cardio. Sagi is the best.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I dropped 32 pounds, increased my energy, dropped 8 percentage points of body fat, and added muscle. I feel great.


How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I need an all-new wardrobe. I feel amazing. My family members are all like, “Wow.”

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Good team effort and accountability. A close friend worked with me at the same time and completed the program.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Regular consistent contact. He was incredible. I could not have done it without him.

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, Activit, and omega were key. I had increased energy and great sleep.
