Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I kept making excuses about how busy my life was. I worked night shift and ate uncontrolled portions, junk food, and drank coke all of the time. I was very depressed, and felt like I was becoming obese. I had just completed my second round of Focus T25, and was so fortunate to be flown to NYC for 3 days to shoot scenes for the new Focus T25 infomercial that will be released by the end of this year, 2014! I wanted to see what all the hype about PiYo was all about, and how a no impact, no weight program could do anything for me after 2 rounds of Focus T25.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was sick of making excuses and carrying around all of the fat I was carrying around, and finally drew a line in the sand! I am a Beachbody Coach now, and am growing my business. That has helped keep me on track with my transformation. I was so happy with PiYo and the results I was getting from it that I recently became certified to teach PiYo live!! I will be starting teaching classes very soon, and am extremely excited about getting started!
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 this time around was that I was still traveling to various states for work. It is easy to eat bad meals and to not workout when on the road because of being in a different environment, working long hours, and making a million other excuses like the ones listed above. I was able to overcome those obstacles by being committed to Beachbody as a Coach, posting pictures and other stuff to my challenge group, and through the use of my laptop computer!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
For PiYo, I wanted to see if a NO impact, NO weights program could offer a legit workout!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
As with Focus T25 in both rounds, mostly because of traveling, my food intake could have been better and I would have gotten better results. Even still, I was able to gain incredible strength improvements all around, my entire body is way more shredded and defined, and my flexibility not only exists now but is the best it has ever been before!!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel so much healthier and energized, and I am no longer depressed and unhappy! I am motivated to get up and help others every day. I have energy all day long to get through anything and everything I need to. My focus is better, my mental health is better…life cannot get any better!!
