†Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Matt is an independent Beachbody Coach.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before P90X, I felt out of shape and slow. I enjoy playing basketball with friends, and I hated how fast I got tired. I didn’t like how I looked in my clothes. I couldn’t believed I had gained so much weight during my wife’s pregnancy. I was sad and not confident.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I did not want to be like my dad because my dad is really obese and could not play with me much growing up, and I wanted to be able to play with my kids and keep up with them. I also wanted to stay attractive to my wife and inspire her to lose weight after the pregnancy.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I was really busy between going to school and working. I had to work out really early or late. I never gave up, and I felt like Tony’s words kept me going, “Do your best and forget the rest” and “Keep pressing play”.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love Tony and his corny jokes. I also loved building up the pull-ups I could do and getting ripped.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am now able to do 15 to 20 pull-ups easily, and I can run with my kids and play basketball for a long time without getting tired.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy, I am more happy with myself, and more confident.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She really motivated me to keep going even when I did not feel like working out. She inspired me to never give up.
