†Results vary depending on starting point and effort.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started Body Beast, I was struggling to find a workout that kept me interested. I would come home from work and attempt to work out, but struggle through it. I did not see many gains, and what I did see was not enough to motivate me.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I have two teenage sons who both began training. I wanted to train to help inspire them. Instead, I found myself being inspired by them. My wife of almost 20 years motivated me and encouraged me every step of the way. Also at 2 a.m. when you can’t sleep and the only thing on TV is Body Beast commercials, you will become inspired once you watch it completely. You see some of the success stories and it doesn’t matter who you are, you have to think “I can do that.”
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced before starting the program was several injuries. I have two bad knees, five degenerative disks in my lower back, one herniated disk, L5 S1, and asthma.3 I can now say that the pain I had felt in my back has decreased. The workouts helped me strengthen my core, which is the key to a strong back. I can now do more activities I was limited in before trying Body Beast.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the variety. Sagi and the staff are by far the best. At times I felt like I was right there with him.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Well to start off, I lost seven pounds. At the start, I was 207 and after 90 days, I’m at 200. I know I have a long way to go to achieve the results I want. I am most proud of the muscle growth in my legs. I have always been called chicken legs. Well I added three inches to each leg. Chicken legs no more.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since completing Body Beast, I have so much more energy. I am more athletic, I am sleeping better at night, and the boost in self-confidence is wonderful.
