Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My job requires me to be in a chair at a desk for 8-16 hrs, and after 6 years I noticed how much I let myself go! I was overweight and lacked energy for everyday chores. I knew I needed a change, but didn’t think there was time. I also thought that helping out on the family farm would keep me healthy, but I kept seeing my weight go up. I looked at recent pictures of myself and couldn’t believe how terrible I looked.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I have two young sons and one new child on the way, and knew that I wanted to be more active with them. In my current state, I was not able to play as much as I wanted to. After seeing what INSANITY MAX:30 had done for my cousin, I asked if he could tell me more about it. He convinced me that I would be able to do it with my schedule, and would be happy when I was done with the program. He couldn’t have been more right! I just finished up PiYo to gain some flexibility and it was great! Beachbody has put out some amazing workouts!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Eating healthy was a weakness due to my work schedule. I tried to watch what I ate, but it wasn’t enough. The support group that I was involved with kept me motivated and on track. I enjoyed seeing everyone’s progress and wanted to make sure I was doing the same. After seeing what the active group can do, I’ll never have an excuse to not be healthy!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked how each workout helped to increase your flexibility along with giving you a cardio workout! Who knew you could sweat that much doing low impact exercises!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m currently at the lowest weight I’ve been for almost 8 years now, and can’t believe how my body has changed. I’m also proud of the eating changes I’ve made to make myself more healthy
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Before I couldn’t find time to workout, and now I have a hard time not working out! I’m a much healthier person, and can’t wait to continue my journey and finding out what I can achieve!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Having a support group made me want to do my very best. The group kept me motivated and striving to make myself better. Whenever I felt like taking a day off or putting the workout off, I would see a post or a motivational quote that made me go down and push play.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Carey checked in with me weekly if not daily and was there for me if there were any questions. He gave me suggestions on meals and what to do to keep my motivation at it’s highest level
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
Using Shakeology supercharged my changes, and kept me energized daily. It was amazing to see what that little change did to my body!
