Meet independent Beachbody Coach Kristin C. She participated in The Beachbody Challenge® and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 17th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
In 2008 I got in great shape for my wedding using P90X. I had 2 kids and didn’t work out after that. I gained about 40 pounds with each kid and got down to within 15-20 pounds of my goal weight. I wore baggy clothes that I knew didn’t show my stomach and every picture I saw of myself I would cringe. I was tired, lazy and grumpy. I have always been a very athletic person and I was miserable not being in shape but didn’t do anything about it. If I started something I would give up easily, I was not my best “me” and not the person who I wanted to be for myself and for my children.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
In the Fall of 2013, I made a goal to be in the best shape of my life for my 30th birthday which was in February. I’ve always heard that the 30s are some of the best years of your life (if you are in a place where you want to be), so I made the goal to be there….I have the best husband, the sweetest kids, the only thing that was missing was feeling good about myself. That was something that I could change for ME!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Finding the time to do it. Being a stay at home mom, the kids wouldn’t let me work out for an hour at a time. I was too tired/lazy to do it in the morning or at night, so I had to find the time that fit my schedule and where the kids would let me do it.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the first P90X but it was an hour long and I tried it after kids and could only complete half of a workout. When X3 came along, 30-minute workouts and total body workouts were a huge plus. Also, P90X3 was new and I needed something new to get me motivated and help me stay on track! I liked the sound of changing workouts every day and a program that would keep me in line. I’m always up for a challenge and completing this program was going to be a challenge that I was ready to take on!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m where I want to be in every aspect of my life!!! I feel amazing, have tons of energy, and am back down to all my pre-baby clothes (and even some of those clothes are too big)! I have all of the energy in the world to play with my 2 kids, I am confident in my body, and I am passionate about life again! I have always been an active person and it has helped me in so many different ways! Ones that I have really noticed are: my golf game (I’m stronger and way more flexible), skiing, basketball, and anything else that I do, I now know that I’m capable and in shape to try! I feel like I can do anything and have started setting my goals higher and challenging myself in ways that I never thought I would!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
P90X3 has been a game changer for me. It has changed my views on working out, getting healthy and has been a complete lifestyle change for me. I can work out for 30 minutes a day and get the results that I want and feel amazing! It taught me what working out and eating right can do for me and my body! This program will have a special place in my heart forever, I will be forever grateful!!!
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained?
Shakeology has taken away all my sweet tooth cravings and helps me stick to a healthy diet. I have more energy and feel better every time I drink it! I will NOT go a day without drinking Shakeology again!!!
