Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I always felt tired, sluggish, very self-conscious, and embarrassed to take my shirt off.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
It all started for me last spring (2015). My wife had just started 21 Day Fix and was drinking Shakeology. She told me that she was tired of feeling bad about the way she looked and felt, and was going to give this program a try. After a month on the program, she had lost about 10 lbs. and was motivated more than ever to keep going. She had been looking through some pictures for what she called her “why” from a beach trip we had taken the previous summer. Well that is when I saw a picture of myself that absolutely shocked me…did I really look like this?! Let’s just say I was shaped like a fridge. My confidence hit rock bottom, and my motivation was non-existent. My diet was poor, made up of junk, and with the usual effort of trying to be better, but none of it led to a leaner body. Training at the gym just was without purpose and just led to more frustration and minimal results.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was being consistent in my diet and exercise routine. This program simplifies everything and gives you the foundation you need to succeed. It is very straightforward. We followed the 60-day workout schedule and loved the nutrition guide. We were 100 percent on point with our nutrition and had no cheat days or missed workouts. My wife and I made Sunday our designated meal prep day. The whole family would go shopping, then come back home and prepare our weekly meals together. The program was so simple to follow with the color-coded containers and all the smart food choices that went with each one. I took lunch to work with me each day and recorded what I ate on the food tracker sheets. We also decided to try the Beachbody Performance supplements. We felt a huge difference in our ability to push harder and recover quicker from the challenging workouts. Even better was the fact that we only needed a few pieces of equipment, a bench, some dumbbells, and a pull-up bar.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The combination of Sagi and Autumn was awesome! The variety of the workouts and movements were incredible, and the fact that I was always challenged was great! Those are two of the best motivators, and they did not let us down. We loved the workouts and our three kids would join in and do some of the moves with us. It’s such an incredible feeling to have our children be active with us. Our 3-year-old daughter calls us Beach Mommy and Beach Daddy, and yes, we call her Beach Baby!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I cannot state enough how physique-altering these last 60 days have been. I am going to be 42 this May, and I have never looked this good in my life. I am happier now more than ever and feel incredible. This program has been a game-changer for both of us and allowed our family to really come together. I lost 9 lbs. and my body fat went from 22.5 percent to 18 percent. Now, there is no looking back for me. I am more committed and dedicated to continue seeing results with each new Beachbody program I do. My passion is to now share my success with others, and help them start their own personal health and fitness journey with Beachbody.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Dramatically… This is now my passion and way of life. I have committed to living a healthier life and being a role model for my friends and family.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It kept me accountable and gave me support along the way.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was incredible, very motivating, and my workout partner!
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, or digestion/regularity?
Shakeology in my opinion is the game-changer. It helped me erase all of the cravings for bad food. The Performance Energize was a must-have for both me and my wife, allowing us to power through the workouts. We also felt a huge difference while taking the Recover after our workout and the Recharge before bed. The next day, we were able to get right back at it without being held back from muscle soreness.
