Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Hi, my name is Amador and I am 27 years old. Before I started the FOCUS T25 program, I felt overweight with not as good of energy that I knew my body was capable of producing. I would eat whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted. I have three sons, and I knew that I needed to change and better my health to set a good example for them. I work full-time and also coach youth football and soccer, which requires a lot of energy so I knew that making this change would better my life.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My inspiration came from my girlfriend and our three kids. She and I did the program together to help keep one another motivated. The fact that we were sitting on the couch watching TV as “family time” instead of being active would bother me, so we decided to do something to change that. Now our family time consists of being outdoors and being active. Not only did this change better us, it is a great change for our kids, who are living a healthier lifestyle as well.
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 that I faced before starting the program is that I knew I would have to change my eating habits as well. For someone who would eat whatever and however much I wanted, this was a challenge for me. The fact that I felt so good after each FOCUS T25 workout just motivated me to do whatever it took to achieve my goals. The recipes in the nutritional meal book were great and satisfied my hunger, which made eating healthy a habit for me instead of a challenge.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I enjoyed T25 because it was only 25 minutes for the workout. I work full-time and have three boys who keep me busy with their sports, so I had to find time in my busy schedule to work out, which was not hard with T25. On days that I was exhausted from work and coaching, I was ready to quit during my workout but never had a chance because the workout was over.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
By doing T25, I not only lost 60 lbs. but also achieved my goal of getting healthy. I now have energy to keep up with my daily schedule, which is super busy. I have also been a motivation to the people around me, because they are now wanting to live a healthy lifestyle as well. It feels great to know that I can encourage people to be healthy, and I now plan on becoming a Team Beachbody Coach.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since finishing the FOCUS T25 program, my life has been great. My energy level has improved so much that I’m getting things done fast and better at work. As a coach for a youth football and soccer team, I am able to be better for the kids, and it makes them want to do better. My friends and family are so proud and want to get help with their health. My family has benefited the most from this change, because we do more together as a family, which is the most rewarding part. I am an all-around better person with a better attitude about life and my health.
