Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?

Before starting with Beachbody I was one of those girls who avoided shopping or looking in mirrors. I had let my body get to a point that I was disgusted with and wasn’t sure how to change it. I was at my heaviest, and every time I went to try on new pants for work, I had to pick the next size up. Working long hours in retail, my knees were starting to hurt from all of the extra weight I was carrying around, and I was tired all of the time.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I actually began my journey with the INSANITY infomercial. I thought the price seemed excessive but told myself if I was willing to spend that much money on something I needed to force myself to actually give it 110% effort. I began the Monday after it arrived and didn’t skip a single workout. I ate clean and drank my meal replacements daily. I allowed myself one meal out per month to reward myself for doing well and that seemed to help prevent the urge to cheat regularly. I lost 20 pounds with INSANITY. I just recently did P90X3 from beginning to end 90 days without skipping any days. This one changed my body from lean to more muscle which I love.

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 for me was confidence. I wasn’t sure I was going to be capable of doing these workouts. They looked so hard, and I was so out of shape it seemed almost impossible. I struggled but never gave up and am now in the best shape of my life. The fit tests with INSANITY showed me I was making progress and helped give me the extra boost of confidence that I needed to keep going. Before and After pics went from being something I dreaded to something I loved.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I would have to say the results sheets is the part that I liked the most. With fit tests and writing down the numbers of reps I am able to do from beginning to end and then seeing my progress is a awesome feeling.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The results of the Beachbody programs I achieved were mental and physical. I went from having no confidence and hating my body to being proud and wanting to show it off. I used to hide under layers of clothes and not go out with friends during the summer because I didn’t want to have to put on a bathing suit. Now, I am the girl that gets a group together to go do things. I am able to wear shorts in the summer! I used to wear jeans all summer long no matter how hot it was just because I didn’t want others to see my legs. I am proud of myself for sticking through the journey no matter how hard it seemed at times.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed in so many ways since I began with Beachbody workouts. I am happier, more confident, and in the best shape of my life. I am finally at the point where I want others to experience the joy Beachbody has brought me. I began Coaching in November of 2014. Helping others with the programs that changed my life is by far the most rewarding part of this entire experience.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Group was such a huge support system. It was a group of people trying to better their lives and willing to help encourage me when I was having a hard day. My family wasn’t the biggest help and would encourage me to go out and have cheat meals so I needed an outside support group that understood the issues I was facing. Now I am able to help others through the same group with my progress pictures and stories.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach is amazing. She is always there for me whether I need just a text message with an encouraging word or a call to talk things through. She is the one who encouraged me to begin Coaching after seeing that I was already sharing Beachbody with others. I probably wouldn’t have made it through the programs without the support of my Coach.

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?
Shakeology was a huge part of the transformation for me. It was the thing that gave me the extra energy I needed when I was exhausted to not skip any workouts. It also helped curve my cravings for the bad foods so that I could eat cleaner and healthier meals.2
