Meet ADAM, age 30 from Decatur, GA. He entered The Beachbody ChallengeThe Beachbody Challenge in February 2015 and won $1,000!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting Insanity Max:30, I thought that I was already eating pretty healthy. I went to the gym about 2-3 times a week and really thought that I was ok. I was pretty ok with the way I looked, but I knew that I could get more muscular. I also thought that I would never lose the weight that I wanted because I got older and it seemed like my metabolism wasn’t what it use to be.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
At first I didn’t even want to do Insanity Max:30. My girlfriend ordered it because she wanted to get into shape after us having our first child. I said that I would do the program with her as support for her. After the first week of doing the program, I lost 8 pounds in one week! I was shocked at the results and then I decided to commit myself fully to the program. As I kept losing weight I was seeing the changes pretty rapidly. Every day I was more and more motivated to reach my target weight of 185 lbs. After the program I had surpassed that reaching 172 lbs!! I couldn’t believe it, just eating clean and committing 30 minutes a day and I got these results, you’ve got to be kidding me, right!!?? I did! I maxed out.
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 was really trying to max out everyday. Some days were harder than others and I probably could have given more while doing some of the workouts on certain days. The first week of adjusting to a clean eating program was difficult too because I was so use to eating a lot of bad food. Insanity Max:30 proved to me that this program is a real legit and promising way of losing weight and getting in shape the right way. Do what’s asked of you and you will get the results that you are looking for.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
That it was only 30 minutes a day and came with a dummy proof easy to follow meal plan.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
When I was done with Insanity Max 30, I didn’t think that I lost that much weight. Boy was I wrong when I compared my before and after photos! I still can’t believe that I have this new body. Insanity Max 30 helped me get my blood pressure under control. I am no longer on blood pressure medication and I feel great!!! I am no longer always tired and I have plenty more energy. I am most proud of the fact that finally, for the first time in my life, at the age of 30, I have a 6 pack! yessssss!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
This program motivated me to become a Beach Body Coach and want to help and inspire others. Since then I have been having so much fun doing what I now love to do helping other transform their bodies and live a healthier lifestyle. I am confident that I will help reach and change many lives by showing people Insanity Max 30. I understand that to achieve results and maintain them requires a lifestyle change. I want Beachbody to come out with many more programs! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the years to come!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Participating in the challenge group helped me stay motivated. I often found myself eager to post pictures of my meals and post video’s of how each workout for each day made me feel. Doing these things helped me stay accountable.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained?
First let me say the chocolate shakeology tastes sooooooo good. Sometimes I purposely have 3 shakes a day!! My insides feel clean and I truly believe that it served as a base to support my workouts in helping me transform my body. My sleep became better and deeper. I became regular to the point where it felt like my body was only holding on to the nutrients and other things that it needed.
