†Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Roxy is an independent Beachbody Coach.
Meet Roxy, age 44 from Maricopa, AZ. She achieved these results with a variety of Beachbody programs despite the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). She entered The Beachbody Challenge in March 2015 and won $1,000!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My life before I started the programs I’ve completed was nothing short of exhausting. I am a single mom to twin boys, aged 4 years. I also was diagnosed with MS in 2007, which leaves me feeling drained a lot of the time. Between raising twins on my own and my MS, I was lethargic, hurting, tired, and really felt like a “sideline mom” when taking my boys to the park to play. I didn’t have the energy to run and play with them like I (and they) so desperately wanted. This caused me to feel depressed and angry about my weight and overall health.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I became inspired to change my life when a friend of a friend of mine on Facebook began telling me about this stuff called Shakeology. She swore it gave her more energy to keep up with her son that is about my twins’ age.2 I knew I needed to try it, and take charge of my health. I could feel it to the very depths of my soul, whenever I looked at my young son’s, knowing I really wanted to be more of a part of their playtime. I needed to do this for them, if I could not yet do it for me. So I began drinking Shakeology, saw a huge difference after only a week, and from there, I decided to begin working out with Body Gospel. It helped give me the spiritual push I needed to regain faith that I could change my life for the better. Now, after completing two rounds of Focus T25, 1 round each of P90X2, P90X3, and Insanity Max:30, I feel confident, sexy, vibrant, youthful, and ALIVE!!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced before beginning the program was twofold: financial and having the necessary time to devote to working out. The financial was finding the way to budget in my monthly Shakeology HD into my grocery budget, along with the cost of the workout DVD’s. Solution? I signed up to become a Coach! With the Coach discount, I found it possible to financially afford what I needed. I now have financial freedom for myself and my little boys. Also, I have the freedom to get my workouts in each day, since I get to workout at home ON MY TIME!! And even better? Most programs are only 30 minutes long.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I absolutely LOVED Insanity Max:30 because I really liked how it felt like Shaun T was talking right to me, through my TV. He makes a point to talk to those of us at home, and really pushes and motivates us the whole way through. I also fell in love with the inspirational message he would give as the DVD’s warning label was scrolling through. This just absolutely is, in my opinion, the GREATEST home workout program ever created. Period!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My cardio endurance is through the roof after completing a round of Insanity Max:30! That’s always been my biggest struggle because I don’t like cardio. But this program gave me abilities I did not know I had by pushing myself to max out! I am super proud of how my abs look after having had twins at age 40! Insanity Max:30 is the REAL DEAL! It is my soulmate workout, all the way!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My cardio endurance is so good now, after having completed IM30, that I enjoy signing up for as many local 5k’s and 10k’s as possible, without hesitation. I also am wearing a bikini for the first time since I was a teenager, no cover up, out in public. People are SHOCKED when I tell them my age (44!). Thank you, Shaun T!!!!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained?
Drinking Shakeology each and every day, without fail, for my breakfast set the tone for my entire day. It fueled me, post workout, and gave my body the nutrition it needed. I am a forever fan of Shakeology, and can’t imagine life without it. I also am a die-hard fan of E&E; without it, I am not entirely sure I would be able to bring it each and every workout like I did. That stuff is AMAZING!
