Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a generally happy person but was unhappy with my current state of health. I was 38 years old and just didnt feel like i thought i should. I felt the need to make a real change in diet and exercise.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My family and my children. Seeing them grow up made me want to be as healthy as I could, so I can hopefully be around a little bit longer to share life with them.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My diet and the motivation to put in the work necessary to get to where I wanted to be physically and mentally. Shaun T is a powerful motivator, and he’s the best trainer. If he can’t get you going, I don’t know what can, and once you start seeing the results, it just takes off from there.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
INSANITY MAX:30 pushes you to your max, no pun intended. It tests you mentally as well as physically. If forces you to become a stronger person on the inside and out.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am just proud of myself for finishing the program twice through. The changes I have made and the circumstances I have overcome lead me to believe that we are capable of anything.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel I am more confident in every day life. I certainly have more energy than I have had in quite some time. I feel good when I see my kids watching me workout. I feel as if that is setting a good example for them down the road.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I am lucky to be in the best challenge group out there. My FITFAMILY is always there to support and motivate one another. We keep each other accountable daily and it truly helps when your just getting started on this journey.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Blakely Dunn is my coach and she is just awesome. Always there to help you in any way or even to just lend an ear. She may even occasionally invite you into the garage of pain to try out new programs. We are all lucky to have such a strong coach in our group.
How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, or digestion/regularity?
I used Shakeology to keep me full. I also used Energize for the pre-workout.
