Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I used to be a top tier athlete in high school. Then when I got into my 20s, I started going downhill with the assumption that I could eat what I ate when I was an athlete and not gain weight. Boy was I wrong. I watched myself gain almost 70 pounds since I graduating high school 10 years ago. I was ashamed of how I could let myself get that heavy.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When I witnessed the birth of my daughter, and when I started playing with her and realizing that I had to take breaks so I could catch my breath and get back into the action with her was the moment I knew something had to give. I wanted to be healthy for my daughter so that I wouldn’t miss a thing with her growing up.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I bought INSANITY a few years back, and I absolutely love Shaun T. But it was just too hard for me and I lost motivation. But when I started t25, I was hooked. Shaun T is such a great motivator and I absolutely loved waking up to do all the workouts. Tania modifying was a huge plus for me as it helped me progress through and get my strength up so I could slowly get to the full moves with Shaun. This program has changed my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Tania modifying was huge for me and the main reason I didn’t give up. Having that included allowed me to progress and gain more strength and confidence to continue on with the program.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Looking at myself in the mirror. I almost don’t recognize my old self before FOCUS T25. My dad bod is gone! My stomach is flatter, and I just feel so healthy.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Playing with my daughter and keeping up with her is no problem now. I am so thankful for this program getting me healthy and allowing me too be the dad that I want to be.
