Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Prior to starting the program, I felt fit in the cardio sense. I always felt I had minimal muscle and strength. Being in law enforcement, my job has direct consequences to not having physical strength. Being able to run fast only gets you so far. If you are forced to have to fight with someone after catching them, it was a scary thought that many of the subjects I dealt with were significantly stronger than I was. This made me feel insecure about my physical strength and muscle mass.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My inspiration is derived from wanting to come home safely at the end of every shift. Working out daily is the least I can do to help contribute to my odds of coming home safely to my wife at the end of every shift.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I was always afraid to lift weights, mainly because of insecurities. I was not good at it. Running on the other hand was something I was good at, and because of this, it was easier for me to just go run. Lifting weights made me feel small, and weak, because I could not lift as much weight as other people or what I thought was average. Beachbody helped because I could work out in my own home with my own weights, and it eliminated that insecurity by having privacy. With Beachbody, I canceled my gym membership (saved a ton of money) and got better results because I now work out daily with an organized workout program.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Initially the weight loss was really cool. During the program I dropped all the way down to 162 lbs., and it was amazing to see the muscle mass change my weight. Towards the end of the program, my weight had gone back up to the mid 170s. This is now my second completed round, and I love that each workout has still captivated me. I like that the program has not felt as though it has been boring after a 2nd full round.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I achieved an increase in muscle mass, strength, and a loss of body fat percentage.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel more fit, stronger, I have more energy, and confidence. Most of all, I actually enjoy working out daily, rarely miss a day due to the ease of the programs, and enjoy being able to workout at home.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Setareh was very helpful by helping me find my motivation, organize my diet, and meal prepping.
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?
I found it difficult to take in as much protein as the Body Beast program required, and Shakeology helped me intake more protein. Energy and Endurance helped me through those early morning workouts and helped me maintain my energy levels during my workouts.
