Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was tired and out of shape, with not much energy. I started with lots of pain in my knees and other joints.* I finished with no pain. I had not seriously worked out for at least 10 years. This was truly a re-introduction to fitness.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My wife and daughter are both Coaches and wanted me to get in better shape.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I didn’t think I had time. I travel a lot. I had to do workouts in hotel rooms.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The progression of the exercises. P90 is a very good program that progresses through the workout in such a way that anyone, regardless of their condition, can follow along or modify each exercise. I really like the Saturday Special, because it is high intensity for only 30 minutes. I feel I get a really good workout.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I reached my two major goals. One, lose 20 pounds and two, lose 3.5 inches off my waist.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy, I eat healthier, and most of all, I don’t have pain in my knees when I jog. I used to run 5k races, and am looking forward to running another in the near future. I am excited to think I can progress to more aggressive moves and exercises. I am looking forward to doing P90X. I really want to work hard on my abs and lose 2 more inches, along with 10 more pounds. I would then be down to the same weight and size I was when I got married 35 years ago.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It was good hearing other people’s challenges and issues they had to overcome. It kept me very motivated.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach gave me encouragement and told me how much better I looked.
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 completely replaced my lunches, gave me energy for my workouts, and, in general, made me feel good.
