Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had been working out doing the various P90X programs for several years but didn’t really pay much attention to the nutrition element, and I never used Shakeology. I told myself it was too expensive. Because of this, even though I was pretty physically fit from the workouts, I was never happy with how I looked. I couldn’t stand my love handles, and I was embarrassed to take off my shirt at the beach. I’ve always wanted to have a six pack but I didn’t have the discipline to make it happen. This poor self-image affected my overall confidence, mood, and intimacy with my wife.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was talking to my Coach about the coaching opportunity that Beachbody offers, and he was telling me about Challenge Groups, and that he was starting one for P90X3 in which I could participate. Since I needed an extra source of income, I decided to take the plunge, become a Beachbody Coach, and do the P90X3 Challenge Group. I knew that as a leader, and with the accountability of the group, I would be much more motivated to stick with the diet plan and get the results that I really wanted.
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 has always been with my diet. I come from a long line of over eaters, and I just love eating lots of food. This is a problem when you want to have a six pack. The accountability of the group, along with the added accountability of being a Coach and setting the example, proved to be great assets when I was tempted to cheat on the diet plan. I also noticed a drop in my cravings for junk food after I started drinking Shakeology every day. With my cravings stunted, and my body full of clean nutrition, the results started coming.2
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved the 30-minute workouts of P90X3! It was so much more manageable to fit a 30-minute workout into my busy schedule than an hour plus like P90X and X2.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost almost 20 pounds of flab (19.4 to be precise). I found my abs. I’ve become much more disciplined in my diet, and have learned a ton about having a clean, nutritious pattern of eating. I’m more defined all over, but the most noticeable place is definitely through my mid-section. I am proud of all of these achievements, and I hope that I can inspire others to change their lives as well!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I just feel better in every way! I’m more confident, vibrant, energetic, and healthy! I love the way I feel! I don’t ever want to go back!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The accountability of being in a group was a huge motivator for me. This motivation was compounded because I also became a Coach myself and knew that I needed to be an example to the rest of the group.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Nick was always available to me to help me to grow as a Coach, and as a person. He’s always pushing me to better myself, take responsibility, and take action in my life.
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?
I definitely noticed a difference because of drinking Shakeology every day. I noticed it was much easier to get up in the morning. I noticed that I didn’t need coffee to make me alert. I noticed more energy in general. I noticed a decrease in junk food cravings. And I noticed that I looked forward to drinking it every day!2
