Meet Alfie S.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for July 30th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I always exercised regularly and ate reasonably healthily (however, in the summers I would garden and drink a lot of good quality beer). I just built muscle on my upper half. Ultimately, I wanted to have nicer abs. I had tried numerous workouts from the internet but was always frustrated with my lack of results with my abs.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One day, I saw my belly in the mirror and did not like what I saw. I tried to cut down on my beer consumption and focus on my abs again. I started working out again with my same results: bigger muscles but very little change to my abs or core. I was talking about my frustration with someone who works at my gym, and she suggested FOCUS T25. I ordered it and promised myself I would have the best body and fitness by my 49th birthday. I turned 48 this March. I also have multiple sclerosis, but I am doing really well now. Regardless of the very very few tough days that I get, I wanted to do this so I could always say I did the best I could do. I still walk properly and do everything but my balance can be suspect at times.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I was doing too many different workouts before. This eliminated that. It helped me realize you need to focus on the body part you are working on and how important the correct form is. I was eating properly but the nutrition guide opened my eyes. It made me more aware of the benefits of different types of foods and that I wasn’t eating enough calories.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My body shaped changed, and so many people ask me what I did. How come I changed so much? I am really cut, and I feel really energized. Looking great for 48!
