Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I’ve always been into working out but could never stay consistent. I went to several gyms and tried many workout programs but usually became uninterested. Eating was a problem for me too. I ate too much fast food and drank lots of pop. I always envisioned the body I wanted and knew I could achieve it, but how?

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One day, a friend of mine who I haven’t seen in a while showed up, and he was in pretty good shape. He use to have a big beer gut, and it was gone! He’s not the most motivated guy, so I wondered how he did it. He said he did P90X for 3 months, and it worked wonders for him. I instantly ordered a copy online and started my P90X journey once it showed up. It was hard at first, but Tony was such a great coach and kept me pushing play. That was 8 years ago. I’m a professional BMX rider, and I have been through many injuries. P90x has always brought me back to a competitive level. Also, with the addition of P90X2 and Shakeology, I have reached the fitness levels I’ve always dreamed of. My fitness has even opened up the door for new and exciting opportunities. Becoming a model is something I was very interested in, and P90X2 got me to the level I needed to be to achieve 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 for me was staying motivated and eating right. The P90X programs keep you interested because of how ever changing the workouts are and they are always on the cutting edge of fitness. Shakeology changed my life! It provided me the fuel to get that extra little bit out of every workout and really reduced my cravings. Plus once you start seeing abs for the first time, you never want to let them go. Just keep pushing play and you start pushing all the bad crap out of your life.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I finally got a 6 pack! I knew it was hiding under all that fat. My legs improved a lot and my shoulder problems went away. I’m proud of how I changed my eating habits and quit drinking pop. My whole lifestyle has changed for the better. I will never go back to the way I was. My riding has improved, and I’m doing a lot of other activities such as hiking and mountain biking. I have endless energy, and my girlfriend can’t get enough of me. I’m truly grateful for what Tony and Beachbody have done for the world of fitness.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I never took off my shirt off unless I was alone. I was very embarrassed about my body. Since my transformation my confidence level has gone up so much. I feel like I’m becoming the person I’m supposed to see in the mirror. My friends and family are all amazed at what I have done. I’m more productive at work and I have energy to go all day. I constantly strive to find healthy options not just food either. You really have to watch the ingredients in all products. It’s made me a very health-conscious person. Life is so much better when you feel great about yourself. I will never stop pressing play.
