Meet independent Beachbody Coach Audrey C., age 55 from Coquille, OR.
She entered The Beachbody Challenge in May 2015 and won $1,000!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was always a skinny young person, but with age, I slowly became less active and gained more and more. I thought it was a life process. I was disgusted with myself. I tried many other programs and could not get past the 10-pound mark. This was going to be my last effort.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My Coach and friend Lorie Ann Everett kept posting her progress on Facebook. I found it annoying at first. One day I saw her post and took a deep breath, and joined. She gave me great encouragement as well as did the groups I was included in. For me, the group was what carried me.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The PiYo workout, in the beginning, was very difficult for me. I had no flexibility and zero upper body strength. Now I get through a workout with very little modifying. I could never do burpees but now I can! As far as clean eating, once I learned it and remembered to eat my healthy snacks the pounds came off. I love the Shakeology shakes, and figured out that breakfast is the best time for me to drink one.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
PiYo was suggested by my Coach because I was worried about my knees. I did not want too easy of a program! PiYo is a great workout! Perfect!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I feel healthy and in shape! I am super energized, yet I actually sleep better at night. I really cannot say enough!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am happier with the new me! I can hold my head up high because of my accomplishments so far! I can do things I haven’t been able to do in a while, such as run up stairs. I believe my knee issues have disappeared. I feel younger and capable of anything!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
My Coach offered several challenges such as sugar detox, water challenge, and 90-day count down. All of which we were encouraged to post regularly what we ate, how much water we drank etc. All I got was positive feedback and careful guidance.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She kept close contact daily, some privately and some within the group. She gave advice with the web page when I needed it. I couldn’t ask for a better Coach. I feel I have a perfect relationship with her.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology was my breakfast when I would otherwise skip that meal. I get all the needed nutrients. It would pick up my metabolism and all without cravings.
