Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I began my fitness journey, I was in college. I was way overweight and out of shape, as I had been most of my life. Due to this, I was not happy with my appearance and lack of mobility. It caused me to have low self-esteem and subsequently, it lead to laziness and some depression.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Upon graduating from college, I looked in the mirror at home and was horrified by what I saw. I had gained a lot of weight and somehow hadn’t noticed. One might think, “How did you not notice that?” It happens though. I got on the scale and realized I was 285 lbs. When I realized the truth about myself, I decided right then to make a change. I ordered INSANITY and soon after, began the program. It kicked my butt. After a few rounds I ordered Asylum Vol. 1, and that was a whole new level of pain. After that I got the Asylum Vol. 2. This was the program that helped me reach and surpass my goal of 180 lbs.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge before I began my journey was discipline in terms of diet and portion control. I also had issue with committing to working out. These Beachbody programs proved to me that I can commit and stick to something for a long period of time. It has given me greater confidence in myself and my abilities.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?

I like the combination of intense athletic cardio and weight training

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Because of my success in this program, it feels like I have a new lease on life. I’m literally in the best shape of my life, and I can do things that I never thought possible, like run a mile in less than 10 minutes.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?

My Challenge Group helped me a great deal. Its very encouraging to talk to people who are going through the same struggle as you.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach kept me encouraged through direct conversation, starting the Challenge Group, encouraging posts etc.. He’s been a great help in my journey.
