Results vary depending on starting point and effort. 

Meet Peng H.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for November 9th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before the program, I always wanted a beach body, but I never found my inspiration. I always made excuses, and I always took the easy way out. I was just an ordinary person like everyone else. I didn’t care what I ate or what I drank. I didn’t even care about my body weight. I was just being myself. I work full time. I come home, eat, and sleep over, and over, and over again. I just consume anything that I can get my hands on without thinking.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My inspiration was myself. I told myself that starting today, I will change my life. I wanted to be different. Why do I want to change?? I want to change because I want to be able to live long and have energy when I get old. I want to change because I don’t want to be like the rest of the people in my community. I want to be different. I want to show others that hard work does pay off.

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 myself. I never believed in myself. I always give up. I always made a excuses. I always had negative thinking in my head that I’m not going to achieve it. Then, there was P90X3. 30 minutes?! I can do that. I refreshed my mind. I stopped everything that was negative and turned it into positive thinking. Seeing those results in those video made me believe that I, too, could achieve the results I wanted!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I never saw muscle in my back before, and now I have it. I have the abs that I always wanted. My vertical jumps are getting higher. I have more energy, and my negative thinking is gone because I believe in myself now.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Finishing a program that I thought I could never accomplish was the greasiest achievement I ever did in my life. Finding myself and my confidence has been the hardest thing to do. Anything is possible if you dedicated yourself and work hard.
