“I’m On Track to the Healthiest Year of My Life”

Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Ryan is an independent Beachbody Coach.

Meet Ryan B. He lost over 80 lbs of fat and added over 35 lbs of muscle with a hybrid of Beachbody programs, such as INSANITY, 21 Day Fix, Body Beast, P90X3, INSANITY MAX:30, and 21 Day Fix EXTREME. He entered his results into The Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for June 10th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I committed to a Beachbody program, I was very overweight. At just 5’6″ I was 215 lbs and very little muscle. My body fat % was in the high 30% range (38% ish), and I developed sleep apnea. I would wake in the night to my wife jolting me awake because I had stopped breathing. This was a reality check for me. My doctor had me on a sleep study wait list and said I would need to sleep with a machine to keep me breathing.1 This isn’t the life I wanted to live.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was always inspired by the transformation stories people shared with their Beachbody programs but thought I could never achieve it due to my body type/genetics or other excuses.

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 was the excuses I created for myself to justify why I was so overweight. I had a mindset that because I was always heavy, that it was genetics and no amount of exercise could fix it. Beachbody’s program, and in particular, 21 Day Fix’s Portion Fix Meal plan gave me the confidence and the ability to see that eating right was what I needed to start to move the scale in the right direction, but more importantly, lower my body fat %.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The Countdown to Competition plan was very challenging but effective at further lowering my body fat %. I experienced great results over a year of eating on the 21 Day Fix plan, but this C2C plan gave me some serious results!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have never in my life seen my ribs or the beginning of my abs. I’m still working towards having them pop but am much closer thanks to 21 Day Fix Extreme. I have muscle definition, can see my muscles, and it’s all thanks to my multi-program journey and the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME meal plans! By running a gauntlet of Beachbody programs (INSANITY, 21 Day Fix, Body Beast, P90X3, MAX:30, and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, along with drinking Shakeology each and every day, I’ve lost over 80 lbs of fat and added over 35 lbs of muscle! I’ve never been this healthy or felt this great in my entire life! It’s entirely due to the consistent effort and motivation given by the Beachbody community, my Coach, our team and never giving up.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I’m on track to the healthiest year of my life and the body I never thought I would ever have. I’m happier, and most importantly, 100% sleep apnea free! I don’t have to sleep with a machine or stop breathing in the night, and my wife and I can rest easy without worrying if I will wake up in the morning.1

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The sharing of struggles and overall motivation that everyone helped everyone was key to staying on track. The Challenge Groups that I hosted as a Coach were instrumental to keep me on track and to get the best possible results.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She’s always supported me and helped me to want to be better. She’s a constant source of encouragement and inspiration by sharing her own journey.

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 is a daily meal for me and I don’t think I could have reached this level of success without it. The fact that it reduced my craving for the junk I used to eat daily was instrumental.2
