Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I began this program, I would have considered myself fit and active. I was sadly mistaken. As soon as I began the program, I noticed changes in myself. I was beginning to sleep better, experiencing less stress, and starting to really like how I was looking. Before the program, I was comfortable with my body but would feel bad as soon as I saw someone more fit. Now, I am the fit one. I cannot wait for beach season when I have an excuse to take my shirt off.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When I began the program, I had already been drinking Shakeology for a few months. My girlfriend told me how she wanted to do The Master’s Hammer and Chisel after her round of 21 Day Fix EXTREME. I volunteered myself to do it with her and support her. From there, she was my inspiration the whole time! She was encouraging me and keeping me motivated and disciplined. She is also my Coach and really kept me going! Another bit of inspiration that helped me stay motivated was the fact that I needed to prepare for several upcoming weddings that I would be part of. It was not easy, but it was worth it!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
One of my biggest challenges before beginning Beachbody was stress and anxiety. I have always had a higher level of stress and anxiety than normal, and was really beginning to get to an unpleasant point. Once I began this program, and kept up with daily workouts and daily shakes, my stress and anxiety decreased as time went on. By the time I finished the program, I was feeling great and could notice a big change (as well as the people around me noticing a change). Another great change is that before the program, my strength was average. Following the program, I have much more strength, energy, and endurance for whatever activity I go for!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really fell in love with how easy the program was to complete at home. It was not an easy program to complete in general, but it was able to be done 100 percent at home. All I had to do was plug in the DVDs and hit play! I followed the meal and workout plan, and the rest is history! The program added a great mix of cardio and toning workouts with mass building and strength training. Overall, it’s a program I would recommend to anyone thinking about it!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am proud of all my results! I have been able to add mass and muscle to my body! For years, I have tried to work out and gain muscle and mass, but have never been all that successful. This program really made it happen. My arms are much bigger, my abs are popping, and my chest actually has muscle now! I am so happy and proud of all my results in this program!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed in several ways since this program. I have more confidence, energy, and strength. On a day-to-day basis, I am less stressed and ready to get through my day, and even excited to do my workout! Beachbody has also given me another family that I can keep in contact with and use as support and motivation. These fellow Beachbody members have been here for me and with me through my journey, and have really helped to make the difference.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
My Challenge Group led by my Coach made a huge difference. The group helped to keep me motivated and on track, and helped me with meal planning ideas and any questions that I had. The Challenge Group was a real support system and valuable tool.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Beachbody Coach helped me along the way by keeping me motivated, on track, and really accountable for what I wanted to do and achieve. She was always helpful in answering questions and was an asset to help get my results.
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?
Beachbody Performance Recover helped me after workouts to recharge and refuel, and to not have as much soreness or fatigue. My daily Shakeology really helped keep me balanced and energized throughout the day. While using these products, I slept better, had more energy, and felt really ready to tackle my day. I love the flavors and really love the versatility of Shakeology!
