Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have battled my weight my entire life. I turned 40 in June of 2012 and hit my all time high weight. I started my weight loss journey in September 2012. I was ready to make changes so I could get healthy and be more happy. After my first Beachbody program, I did Focus T25. I think Body Beast has been my favorite. I love seeing the changes!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
In September 2012 I made a decision that I no longer wanted to be fat! I started working out on my own and in December 2012 I started going to our local fit clubs. Ultimately it was going to fit club that completely changed my life. The friends I made really helped me to stay motivated and push harder!!!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
It was very difficult at first to exercise due to being so overweight and there were so many times I just wanted to give up! Thankfully with my group of very supportive friends, I pushed through. Utilizing the Beachbody website has been very helpful in this journey. Shakeology has also been very key to my weight loss. After each program, I became stronger and leaner. I hit my 100 pound weight loss in 15 months using nothing but Beachbody programs and Shakeology
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
After doing 15 months of intense cardio and losing the 100 pounds, it was time to step out of my comfort zone. That is why I picked Body Beast. I wanted to start weight training. It was scary at first but I fell in love with it!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
After the first few weeks I started to see changes. My muscle definition was showing more and people complimented me on my arms! I am very pleased with the results for the last 90 days (of Body Beast), and I plan on starting another round in a few weeks.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
More people notice the changes in my body and the definition and muscles! I have so much energy and look forward to seeing Sagi every day!
