Daniel Gonzales lost 12 lbs. in 60 days with The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, Shakeology, and the Beachbody Performance Line supplements. He entered his results into the Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for May 17th!
What motivated you to begin The Master’s Hammer and Chisel?
My wife has been a Beachbody Coach for over a year. I witnessed her transformation and was happy for her. She approached me this past December, and said she would like to do this workout program together. Since I was out of shape, and our marriage needed work, I was all in.
What were your goals with The Master’s Hammer and Chisel?
My main goals were to reduce my waistline, get cut, and feel better about myself.
What kind of results did you see? Where did you see the most results?
Coupled with eating properly and drinking Shakeology, I noticed my waistline getting smaller, my man boobs beginning to shrink, and muscles developing again. I noticed the most results in my midsection around my stomach.
What was it like to have two trainers on one program? What did you like about Autumn and Sagi?
I enjoyed both trainers for different reasons. I like Sagi because of his true nature. He is definitely funny but very motivating. Autumn is motivating as well in a different way. She is positive, and provided an explanation for each exercise.
Have you previously tried 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix EXTREME, or Body Beast? How did this compare?
Yes, I have tried both 21 Day Fix EXTREME and Body Beast. I was not dedicated to either of them, but I would do a day or two here and there. Comparing them to The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, I have to say way more legs, that’s for sure. Way more conditioning and way more legs… oh I said that already. The exercise combinations seemed unique and different, but I did not question them and held true to the program.
What do you like most about The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, and why?
I liked the difference in the trainers, mostly because you felt like it was not the same voice giving the same information. You looked forward to listening to what the next trainer had to say. I also liked the variation of the exercise moves. Sometimes you do the same moves, and this program offered some crazy, insane exercises.
If someone was considering trying The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, what would you say to them?
I have recommend The Master’s Hammer and Chisel to several people. As a matter of fact, many people have asked me what I have been doing to lose weight and get healthy. I explained The Master’s Hammer and Chisel to them, and told them it is tough and takes dedication. At 45 years old, if I can do it with a full-time job working 10 hours a day and driving one to two hours in traffic each way, anyone can do it. The 30–40 minutes a day of good old fashion hardworking exercise to extend your life is worth it. I have told many male friends that they spend more time in the restroom than they would doing this exercise program. Furthermore, I tell them if they drink Shakeology, their restroom breaks would be shorter. LOL!
Have you reached your weight loss/fitness goals? If yes, did you do anything to celebrate that goal?
I just mentioned several people have asked me about my transformation. I tell them it’s all about setting your goals to be healthier and working to lengthen your life as much as possible. They are very impressed and ask me: “How long did it take?” “Is it a diet?” Or they say, “I don’t have time.” I then explain that they do. Most of them are very impressed with my results and dedication. Some say I need to gain weight, but I feel pretty damn good about my transformation!
Have friends or family members commented on your new physique? What has their reaction been?
As I mentioned at the beginning, I was not very healthy, although I thought I was. My life felt out of control, and my marriage was in trouble. We were distant with not a lot in common. This program, along with daily prayer, allowed us the necessary time to assist with building back a friendship between us. We had something to do together other than running our kids around town. As our faith has grown, so have our bodies and our minds. This program has also opened my mind to a new way of thinking. There are some good people in this world who are in the same position in life as you. I enjoyed being in a Challenge Group discussing the issues with working out and the tough days of doing The Master’s Hammer and Chisel. There is so much more I can say. I believe in Beachbody programs, and they have changed my way of thinking regarding exercising with DVDs.
On a side note, I am a kinesiology major. I thought I had a good idea of health, fitness, and exercise. Little did I know my thoughts would change. Prior to Beachbody and my wife’s transformation, I thought you needed a gym and that DVD workouts were foolish… I was wrong! These words are the truth of my life and the last few months. I will continue to use these programs.
