Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I gained some weight and had my first baby boy in 2012. After that I had a hectic life due to college and then had my second child in June 2015. After all this time without working out, I was having very negative thoughts about how I looked and felt even worse. I was constantly tired and had zero energy. I was having shoulder problems as well that landed me in the hospital a few times.* The doctors told me that as soon as I had my baby, I needed to get back into strength training to strengthen my back and shoulder muscles in order to help with my shoulder muscle issues. I felt very badly about my self-image and wanted to start the journey to a new me!

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
It was really my shoulder pain and the doctors telling me that if I didn’t strengthen my back and upper body, the issues would keep coming back.* I am a dental hygienist, and it is very important to have good posture or else you can get very severe muscle issues in your shoulders, back, and neck. I was experiencing all of these and thought it was time to start strength training again so I wouldn’t be in as much pain. I was skeptical if it would work at all for the pain, but I also wanted to get back in shape and get the figure back that I had prior to having my babies. Not only am I getting my figure back, but I am happy to say that I have zero shoulder, neck, or back issues since strengthening my core and back! This is an added bonus to me getting in shape again! I am very happy I turned to Beachbody and P90X to get my life back.

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 I faced before beginning the program was time. With two kiddos, it made it hard. The Beachbody program helped me overcome this, because I could work out from the comfort of my home. If a morning time worked better one day, I could do it in the morning. If I couldn’t go in the morning, I could do it late night as well. I loved having the ease of being able to stream the videos where and when I wanted. I could have my kiddos right next to me while I worked out. No more excuses.


What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the challenge it brought! It was fun, and I never got tired of it.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am very proud of the change in my “muffin top,” which was the part of my body I hated the most. Also, my legs trimmed down and probably my favorite part is my abs are coming back! I also love that I am getting more definition in my arms and legs too! It helped strengthen my core, back, shoulders, and neck muscles so my chronic shoulder spasms went away, and I no longer have pain daily in my lower back and shoulder after work!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed dramatically. Like I stated before, I no longer have back, neck, and shoulder pain, which is huge. I also have better self-esteem, more energy to get me through my day, and I feel like a whole new person!

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She helped me with some resources for new meal ideas and was there to chat if needed.

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 don’t believe I would have gotten the results I had without using the Beachbody supplements! They gave me a boost of energy to burn through my workouts and helped me recover fast afterward. I have slept way better since starting my program and have a better mood and way more energy.
