Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My confidence was at an all-time low. I didn’t want to go out in public. For the first time in my life, I had back rolls. Overall, I was embarrassed of what I had become. My health was also not up to par as I was also sick quite often. My diet was up and down. I’d eat healthy one day, and the next I would be eating an entire large pizza by myself.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I saw the culture that Beachbody produced. I loved it. I saw what my Coach was posting and it inspired me. I printed out his before and after picture and brought it with me into the basement where I worked out. I wanted to be part of this team that produced positive results.
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 the peer pressure from those around me to live an unhealthy lifestyle. I attend many events and social gatherings. Poor food and beverage choices constantly have surrounded me. I just learned to know that my end of goal of looking and feeling great was a better option than drinking 4 craft beers in a night.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I live a busy life between running two businesses. Time is never my friend. I LOVED Focus T25, because I could commit to 25 minutes (plus 3 for the cool down) every morning. As long as I just focused on continuing, I would be done with the workout before I knew it. Pretty soon, I was wishing the program was longer, because I was enjoying it so much.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am proud that I lost 40 pounds. In fact, I honestly couldn’t believe the scale. I asked my wife if our scale was broke and then triple checked it still. This was the first time in my life that when I went on vacation, I felt confident when I took off my shirt. I wasn’t trying to suck in my stomach or hurry up and put on my tee shirt to walk around.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel great! The confidence I have is amazing. The only downside is I need new pants and shorts. If I don’t wear a belt, my shorts completely fall off of me. I’ll take this option any day though, compared to where I used to be at.
