Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was not happy with myself, had low self-esteem, and suffered from minor depression. I was overweight, sluggish, and had lost the will to participate in the sports I enjoyed.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
After a fishing trip with some friends, and seeing the results they attained by the use of the P90 program, it got me thinking. One of my friends asked me to complete a Challenge and, to my delight, I did.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge was getting over my negative thinking. I constantly thought, “You can’t do it.” But I overcame those negative voices, and here I sit as a testament to hard work and nutrition.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was very good in the way the exercises progressed. When I started it, I was just keeping up with the modifier. By the end, I was really pushing myself and kept up with the higher intensity trainers.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Well, I lost 45.2 pounds and 43 inches. I am back to enjoying playing hockey without the joint pain, and just being happy and active every day. An added benefit is the positive results of helping with my depression.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am happier and more balanced in all aspects of my life. This program started off as just a physical challenge, but I found it helping me to grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Group kept me on track with advice, encouragement, and support. Being in a Group made me accountable and part of a team — a team that I didn’t want to let down.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach was there whenever I had a question or concern. He was supportive and kicked my butt when I needed it kicked. He was not only a Coach, but a cheerleader as well, handing out encouragement and pats on the back when needed and earned.
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?
I used Shakeology, and it was a great product for after my workouts and as a snack.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
With the whole program and the results I attained, I have less joint pain and I am way more active.
