Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was dealing with depression, and was very unhappy and moody. Talking to anyone was an “inconvenience.” My self-esteem and confidence were at an all-time low. I was also suffering from concussion symptoms from a single-vehicle accident. My diet was unhealthy and inconsistent.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I became a Beachbody Coach, which meant it was time to take care of myself by holding myself accountable. I could then inspire others to take action and stay accountable as well.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I struggled with meal planning, consistency, and finding the “time” to exercise. I love the structure that Beachbody fitness programs offer. I am also a big fan of the wonderful tips that Beachbody offers when it comes to healthy eating and finding continuity! One last word: Shakeology!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Besides the awesome structure of P90X3 (the overall balance of cardio and strength), you can’t beat the 30 minutes it takes! Those 30 minutes are no joke though. I broke a serious sweat every session!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I like the external change; I can now wear clothes that have been in my closet for years. But my favorite change is the internal transformation, which I wish was easier to show to others. My confidence, energy, resiliency, and physical strength are back! My anxiety, depression, and mood swings are gone too!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I now have a positive outlook on life. I continue to take care of my body and mind. I have found daily structure to finding the time to exercise and properly fuel my body. I also find it very important to fuel my mind by reading and listening to inspirational and motivational books!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I followed the program on my own, but my Coach Brittany would constantly check in on my progress. She kept me motivated on the days that were not so easy to be.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Brittany and her husband John are not only great friends, but a great source of inspiration! They truly care about the well-being of the challengers and Coaches they mentor. Thank you for your guidance, and let’s keep it going!
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 is truly the real deal. I hate to say it, but I’m sorry that I wasted time and money drinking other “powders” and “shakes.” Nothing comes anywhere near the level of nutrition that Shakeology offers. I like the sustained energy and ability to focus that I get by drinking Shakeology daily!
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
Shakeology has allowed me to lower my blood pressure, which was elevated three months ago and is now within normal range. I also no longer crave “unhealthy” snacks or meals. My wife, daughters, and I have also saved money over time by drinking Shakeology, because we rarely eat outside of our home nowadays. We have been able to stay away from the “easy and quick” fast food drive-thrus.
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
My blood pressure is within normal range, and I’m no longer taking any anti-depressants or anxiety pills!
