Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt awful about myself. I had been from one diet program to another, and all of them failed me. I was ready to go through surgery until I decided to try my first Beachbody program.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Just looking at myself in the mirror one day realizing how ugly I looked, and being jealous of all the other men who were easily able to get dates.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge was basically keeping the motivation. With Beachbody, I was able to maintain the motivation with the forums and many support groups out there on Facebook.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved the high intensity of the INSANITY workouts, but didn’t have enough time to do them. So I went with INSANITY MAX:30. I loved the fact that I was constantly in competition with myself.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’ve lost over 100 pounds on Beachbody programs, and about 20 pounds of that was from INSANITY MAX:30.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel 10 times better about myself. People are complimenting me all the time. I also have a great deal of confidence in myself now.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Sharing my experiences with other people was a great motivation to keep going.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She provided recipes, motivation, and answered all questions I had about dieting and exercise.
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?
I’ve been drinking Shakeology for months now, and found that it has made my general wellness better overall. I haven’t been sick and have been feeling great every day.
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
My cholesterol and sodium are down.
