†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?
About a year and a half ago my weight got up to 268 and that was enough for me. I spent almost a year cleaning up my eating and started exercising. I managed to drop down to 180 lbs. I did not like the way I looked at that weight. I started weight training and thought I knew what I was doing. I got up to around 205 but I could not achieve the look that I wanted. So I ordered Body Beast.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My kids are my driving force. My health was bad, I was taking medication for diabetes to control my blood sugar, nerve meds for foot pain from the diabetes, and had back pain a lot.1 I decided enough was enough and I needed to get in shape, for my own sake and for my children as well. I wanted to be able to run and play with them and pick them up. I felt bad telling them I couldn’t do certain things with them because Daddy’s back hurt, etc.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Nutrition. That is what Body Beast taught me more than anything. I thought I was eating healthy and eating enough. It turns out that I was not. Body Beast also opened my eyes about how to really maximize my training sessions. I realized that I did not need to lift as heavy weight as I was doing before to get the results that I had been looking for.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The eating plan was really the key for me. It was the number one thing that I was missing. I really needed that pinned down, that I should eat “x” amount of starches, carbs, etc.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost weight, but gained muscle and can now do whatever I want. I can keep up with the kids at the house, and work circles around the guys at work.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel more confident in everything that I do. My better fitness also allows me to have more fun and enjoy outdoor activities. I actually enjoy running and doing my cardio workouts.
