Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting FOCUS T25, I was a recovering drug addict with little direction when it came to health and fitness. I had completed intensive in-patient therapy for 30 days, and was finally clean after a long battle with drug addiction that lasted on and off for several years. I knew I had to change to continue down a healthy path.1
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My twin sister is a Beachbody Coach. I saw how she was helping people to transform their lives and I thought, “Why not me?” I reached out to her and she recommended FOCUS T25. I knew, in order to continue a life of sobriety and increased health, that I would have to incorporate daily workouts.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge was how out of shape I was. I hadn’t worked out in years. Having it become a part of my daily routine was difficult. At first, I was discouraged and had to modify, press pause, and catch my breath. But with each day, I got stronger. I couldn’t wait to press play every day (sometimes twice a day), and I absolutely loved when I could do the full version of the moves and move on from the modifications! Beachbody, FOCUS T25, Shaun T, the crew, and my Coach helped me every single day to realize that I am worth it! I could complete the program, and I continued it over and over again for a year for an amazing transformation.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was short, sweet, and to the point. Shaun T helped me focus on exactly the muscle groups needed!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have experienced amazing results with this program. I lost 80 lbs. total — 80! I gained muscle in places I never knew possible, and I have a six-pack! After dealing with a drug addiction that I feared would take my life, to achieve these goals is just remarkable and it has changed my life. I never imagined I could be sober, let alone lose 80 lbs., and become a new and improved person!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am more confident now than I have ever been before. I have a whole new outlook on life, and I am still pressing play every single day with Shaun T. I am stronger, healthier, and so much happier!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Initially, I was a part of a Challenge Group. After that, I continued the program on my own. The group helped keep me accountable, and my Coach checked in every day (and vice-versa) to keep me on track with my goals.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach helped me press play, even on the days I didn’t want to. At first, I had to modify everything and was discouraged. I thought, “Will I ever finish this program and not modify?” But my Coach kept telling me to keep at it! Keep going! Every single day it will get easier, she said. And she was right. It did get easier. I still have my bad days, but she has always been there for me (and others) to motivate them to keep going!
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, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology was a treat. It was my cheat every day. It helped me with sustainable energy and cravings!2
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc…)?
I lost eight pant sizes and 80 lbs. with FOCUS T25.
