Meet Independent Beachbody Coach Madeline P.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for July 27th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
At age 49, I was frustrated, tired, and had low energy. As time passed, I would gain more and more weight. It was unbelievable; I could see it but couldn’t control it. I had insomnia, pain in my knees and joints. I felt like I was 80 years old. I knew time was not on my side and I had to do something about it. The longer I waited the harder it would be. My body and mind weren’t helping. I started to feel the years slip by and it wasn’t enjoyable. I wasn’t enjoying my life like I should. I didn’t want to go shopping, and my self-esteem was low.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I decided when I turned 50 it would all change, I needed a life transformation and my time was running short. After much sacrifice, raising my kids and working, it came time to take care and feel good about myself once again. I wanted to enjoy my life again and then I found Beachbody. If it worked for other people it had to work for me, that was my hope.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program?
Before starting the program, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do the exercises and that I would injure myself. I needed a program that would help me lose weight not gain it back. These are exercises that everyone can do. It does not matter what age you are.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
To my surprise the Beachbody program worked from the first day I started. I was drinking my Shakeology daily, and began to feel a sense of energy and well-being. I haven’t felt that for a long time. Each day made me stronger, my body changed, and therefore, everything around me changed. I have gained control of my weight, my body and my life.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Thanks to Beachbody, today at 50 years of age, I can say I feel better than ever. Exercise and good nutrition is now part of my life. I would not trade this healthy feeling for anything.
