Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My life before Body Beast can be summed up in one word: lazy! I lost all kinds of motivation to be healthy and to stay fit because I was comfortable with being comfortable. I would literally go out to a restaurant with friends and order like five different appetizers because they were half off and because I had no self control. I was so insecure with how I looked I didn’t go the beach because the thought of taking my shirt off would haunt me! When friends invited me to pool parties I gave them excuses for why I couldn’t make it. I missed a lot of good times with good friends because of my insecurity about how I looked.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
My inspiration came from two places. First, my body is a temple, and I have a responsibility to God and my family and friends to treat my temple with respect by eating clean and exercising on a daily basis. I believe that nobody is promised tomorrow and your number can be up at any time, but I want to make sure that I do everything in my power to be healthy so I can be here for as long as I can. I decided to try Body Beast the second I saw an ad for it on the Beachbody site because I knew it was the only program that puts on muscle mass and definition.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program?
The greatest challenge I faced was being consistent. Going through Body Beast has helped because I saw the kind of results I wanted. The knowledge I learned about gaining muscle using drop sets, giant sets, and progressive sets kept me motivated and made me look forward to the next workout.
Describe the results you achieved.
Because of Body Beast, I was able to lose 50 pounds in 6 months! And not only did I lose a large amount of fat, I’m 39 and I have abs! I haven’t had abs since I was in my 20s. I’m also proud of the fact that I finished something I started. The feeling of accomplishment is something no one can take from me, and I plan on making it a lifestyle.
