Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My dad passed away at the age of 52 from cancer. I had decided that I was not going to be victim of poor health any longer. I have always struggled with weight since childhood, finding some sort of comfort in food. I knew I was overweight, but thought I had more “muscle” and that’s why the scales were so high (boy, was I wrong).
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I saw an infomercial for P90X3 featuring Ed. He lost a ton of weight, and I thought if he could do it, why couldn’t I?
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I, like everyone I’m sure, have a very busy schedule that sometimes requires me to work 24 hour shifts. I needed a workout plan that I could adapt to fit my needs. P90x3 was just that. 30 Minutes a day with little equipment needs was perfect for me.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The time and the variety. With all the different workouts I never got bored, and then transitioning to the Body Beast hybrid to increase my overall strength was great.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am wearing the same size pants that I did in high school! No one told me how expensive transforming myself would be, I had to buy all new clothes, which was really part of the fun.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I workout every day I have the opportunity! My wife and I plan our meals every week and I feel great! We are constantly challenging ourselves to become better versions of ourselves. Her mom has even started doing P90 and has already lost 30lbs!
