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 thought I was pretty in shape, but I was extremely self-conscious. I never wanted to be in a bathing suit, and I didn’t own anything that showed my belly. I was spending a lot of time working out with nothing to show for it. I thought I had the best body I could have, and had given up on being as thin as my friends. I was also very stressed. I had anxiety and would sometimes cry for no reason at all.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I started the program because I was interested in becoming an Instructor, so I could at least get paid for all the time I was spending working out. I then realized how amazing I felt after a workout. After about three weeks, I noticed I had less anxiety, was happier, and had more energy. My boyfriend even noticed a change in my mood. I felt like a different person. After my Certification training, I went home and looked in the mirror, and for the first time in my life, I liked what I saw!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was committing to the program. This meant sometimes waking up at 5 AM to work out before work or working out after an 11-hour workday. I would also say a challenge was learning to love myself and my body. Getting healthier via Shakeology and in shape via PiYo have totally transformed not only my body, but my life. I have never been happier!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love how it focused on strength using body weight and flexibility without standard stretching. So I was getting stronger and more flexible without getting bulky.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost fat that I didn’t even know I was capable of losing! I also have muscles! Becoming stronger without getting bulky is amazing, but being comfortable in my own skin is my favorite part!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am so much happier now! Doing PiYo regularly puts me in such a better mood! I never have anxiety now. I have stopped overeating and drinking so I can keep my results, which has made me healthier. Since my transformation, I have become a PiYo Instructor and a Beachbody Coach, so I can inspire and help others have the life they deserve!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She inspired me to start this life for myself. I watched her on Facebook helping others, and she is the one who introduced me to PiYo and to the idea of becoming an Instructor and a Coach.
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?
I believe Shakeology plays a huge role in my health and happiness. I suffer from digestive issues, fatigue, and overwhelming cravings. With Shakeology, those problems are minimized. I recommend it to everyone!
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I have IBS and suffer from constipation. With Shakeology, I am more regular.+
