Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before Beachbody, I was exhausted. I was eating poorly, chasing a two- and three-year-old all day, and had so little energy to give my husband and daughters. I made very little time for myself, and often just ate whatever I could find. I had fallen into a rut. As my clothes got tighter, my self-esteem got lower. It got to the point where very little fit. I felt so alone and lost.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When I met my Beachbody Coach, I saw her zest for life, and I wanted to follow in her footsteps! She helped me see that as wives and moms, we have to make it a priority to invest in ourselves, so that we can give back to our loved ones! I started with PiYo, which completely changed my core. I fell in love with Shakeology, which helped me immensely with my sugar cravings. Then I decided I wanted to Coach too! I’ve always loved weights, so I got on board with Body Beast! In just a few months, I had completely transformed myself. As I began running Challenge Groups, I felt incredibly accountable and knew I needed to fill the shoes of a leader! God called and I stepped up!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Before starting, I had very little accountability and support. When I met my Coach and participated in my first Challenge Group, I fell in love with the community and fellowship of the participants. My entire life changed when I realized I wasn’t alone anymore, and having a fit family is something that has completely filled my cup. Now that I am a successful Coach myself, I hear others share this same story. I love how Beachbody truly is about journeying together!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved Body Beast, because I love lifting. I used to be very intimated to lift at the gym, because I didn’t know what I was doing. But being able to lift in the comfort of my own home was life changing!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My body fat has gone down tremendously, and my muscle mass has greatly increased. I have energy, stamina, and strength. I feel like my body can handle absolutely any challenge! My biggest achievement was competing in a figure show and winning fifth place! Beachbody helped me every step of the way!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am changed from the inside out. I am no longer the person who used to try and give up when it got tough. Now, I seek out challenges and take the road less traveled! I see that using my body in the ways God has called me to thrive is my passion, and has fulfilled me beyond anything I ever imagined possible! I feel like a warrior now. I love helping others receive and embrace that calling as well!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Groups were so vital in my success. Having other people looking out for me, commenting on my posts, and sharing words of encouragement helped me see I am not alone. We all have trials and hardships. But when you find others who can relate to you and cheer you on, the world gets a little brighter and you realize there is so much hope! I loved the daily check-ins and energy in the groups. Life is so much better when we journey together!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
I don’t know where I would be without the incredible support from my Coach. She was always there for me, and continues to be someone I look to frequently for advice, support, and friendship. She doesn’t just give advice, she lives the life of a role model and mentor. She is one of the strongest women I have ever met, and I pray to follow in her footsteps.
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?
Shakeology has become an integral part of my day. It helps me significantly with my appetite, mood, cravings, and energy. The few times I have missed it have been completely different days that I do not care to repeat! My family also drinks Shakeology daily, and it has really helped my husband with appetite control. My three- and four-year-old love it. I love that I don’t have to worry about days they refuse their veggies anymore!
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I have been able to stop all outside supplements. I used to take supplements for sleep and energy. I have not had to purchase anything above and beyond my daily Shakeology since I started drinking it eight months ago!
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
I have been able to reduce medication I previously took for anxiety.
