Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?

Prior to getting started with P90X and Shakeology, I hadn’t been as active physically as I had wanted. I was in the navy only doing the bare minimum for exercise, but still eating anything I wanted. My energy level was pretty very low, and I barely had enough energy to keep up with my kids. I had grown to an uncomfortable 185 pounds, and really didn’t like my body. All my life however, I was very active and athletic and exercised regularly, but about a 2-3 year period, prior getting started with P90X and Shakeology, I just didn’t put much emphasis on diet and exercise.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was just tired of looking in the mirror and being disgusted by what I was looking like. I knew that once I seriously began to exercise and eat right I could get back into shape and look the way I wanted. However, I wanted to try something different than just your standard weight lifting and running. I knew that I wanted a system or program that kept me accountable, was challenging, and could get me the results I wanted.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The hardest part for me was just getting started. I knew that once I got started and got past the initial pain and soreness, I would be okay. My Coach was very influential in helping me to just get started and to not give up. Logging my workouts on TeamBeachbody.com website also helped, because it was another way of being held accountable. There were so many other people logging their workouts and giving encouraging words, it just made me want to keep on going.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really like the concentration of hitting one or two muscle group each workout. I loved the fact the there was muscle confusion, so just as I began to get familiar with one workout, the next workout would shock my body in a positive way.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Completing the P90X program, combined with drinking Shakeology every day, I lost 25 pounds and 4 inches off of my waist. I experienced higher energy levels which allowed me to have the energy to play with my kids without burning out. That was the physical evidence, but it also showed me that I could follow a program and stay with it until the end. It showed me that if I stayed consistent I could get the results that I wanted.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed for the better. It really helped me reignite a lifestyle of health and fitness. It’s become part of my lifestyle and my families lifestyle. I’ve been a positive influence on my kids. They like to watch me work out and often work out themselves. We bought Tony and Kids workout program for them. They love it.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Group was great! It was awesome to see the other people going through the program with you and everyone sharing their results along the journey. It didn’t matter that everyone didn’t have the same results, we all encouraged one another and celebrated each other for their accomplishments.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach was always there to encourage me to keep on going. He was just there as a sounding board and to answer any questions that I had.

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 was very instrumental to my results. Shakeology was the catalyst that allowed me to lose the weight and the 4 inches off of my waist. I had more energy, I could think more clearly, and it helped to keep me regular. Since I started drinking Shakeology I’ve been the healthiest I’ve been in a long time. My kids even enjoy Shakeology. My whole family drinks it, and we’re healthier for it.2
