Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had a really tough time working out after my son was born on September 28, 2012. After that, working out wasn’t a priority to me. He needed breathing treatments constantly, and I had no drive to do anything. I was depressed and out of shape.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I kept seeing the commercials and people on Facebook that had struggled, but made it through. It was really hard knowing that I was a trainer and had lost all confidence to do what I love. I needed to see the transformations. I needed to believe in myself. I wish I had done it before.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Making the decision to do it. Believing in others was easy for me, but believing in myself was impossible. I jumped in as a discount Coach and started my journey. In just a month, I fell in love. Since then, I’ve brought in 12 people to join me on this amazing journey. Beachbody changed my family’s life virtually overnight. I can never thank you enough for the self-confidence I’ve gained and the altruistic people that are now in my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The 25 minutes was perfect.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I got more ripped than ever before, but I’m more proud of the fact that I walked through my fear and beat the doubt that was eating me alive. Helping others is my focus for the future.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My self-confidence is better than ever. I met people that helped me day in and day out, lifted me up, and taught me that helping others is key to my success. The fact that I followed through with the program, drank my Shakeology, and got unbelievable results has changed my life. I can do anything I put my mind to. I didn’t have that belief two months ago.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I knew that if I didn’t do it, the Coaches I added wouldn’t do it, so it kept me accountable.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She’s my fiancée, so we helped each other learn everything we could about coaching, and we motivated each other daily.
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?
I stopped drinking coffee and energy drinks, and I’ve never had this much energy. With no crash, it helped me with junk food cravings. And I’ve told everyone I’ve never felt or looked this good.
