Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I didn’t feel completely sad because I just had my beautiful princess, but I felt uncomfortable, out of shape, big, and just thinking if I was going to be able to lose all that body fat from my pregnancy and be the same person that used to do INSANITY before.4
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was in the hospital the night before I had my second baby and the commercial for FOCUS T25 came up. I thought it was perfect for me because my life was about to get a little bit busier and more intense than it used to be. So as crazy and funny as it sounds, I bought the workout the same day my baby was born.4 I was determined to get my body back.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program?
I was out of shape. I felt like I did not have the power to finish each workout, and even though I used to workout before; I did not have time to recover from my first baby. I found out later on that we were pregnant again, so, it was like I started from zero. I can say now that it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. So happy that I took the challenge.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The time was just perfect. Shaun T made it all so easy, and I loved the way he was able to inspire me, keep me focused and made me work hard for those 25 minutes every day.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel so alive. I love to see the changes in my body, my mind, and my personality. I feel happy and healthy. I love to feel young and more energetic. I love to see my oldest son (now 2 years old) trying to do the same exercises that I’m doing.
