Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started FOCUS T25, I was slowly getting into a healthier lifestyle. I had moved out of my parents house, and moved in on my own place for college. As a teenager I had put on a lot of weight. I was 260 lbs graduating high school. When I started living on my own I started taking more responsibility for my health. I started walking and cooking for myself, and going to my school’s recreational center. I slowly started losing more and more weight, and falling in love with having a healthy lifestyle.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Growing up as an overweight child, and being constantly tortured, was extremely emotional for me. People had so much advice on how to lose weight. They would tell me: “you would look so great if you were thinner.” All the negative comments and criticism made me hate my body, and really made me look down on myself. It wasn’t until I moved out, and got away from all the people who were criticizing me, that I decided to start working toward a healthy lifestyle.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Before started FOCUS T25 I had a hard time staying motivated. I also was having trouble losing weight, even when I was eating healthy and working out. FOCUS T25 kicked my healthy lifestyle change to a whole new level. I was seeing my body change in completely new ways. Shaun T made me feel more motivated than ever. I love the way he coaches, and I apply a lot of his sayings to my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I chose T25 because I work a full time job, and it was hard for me to find time to work out, but 25 minutes is completely doable. It was an intense work out, I would say that they really put a full body intense workout into 25 minutes perfectly. T25 worked a lot of my muscles. I started to see so much definition in my arms, abs, and legs.
