Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I always liked working out. I did P90X in 2011, and did pretty well with it. I then got pregnant with my daughter in the fall of 2011. I tried losing the baby weight. After losing the first 10 lbs, I got pregnant with my son. I was determined that starting in the new year I would lose my baby weight, and decided to use TurboFire this time.4 I found that I started to crave the workouts every morning. Just a little bit of time to myself each morning, doing awesome, fun, effective workouts, allowed me to keep my own identity. In addition to being a wife and a mother, I felt I owed it to myself to be a kick ass person as an individual. So glad I did because I’ve never been more proud of my body and how healthy I feel.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I wanted to be more fit than I was in high school. After watching the cast members stories at the end of the first workout video, I was super inspired to be like the women that have children and look amazing. Some of these women in the TurboFire videos have like 7 children! There’s no reason that I can’t do TurboFire with just two kids!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I would say my biggest challenge would be making the time to do the workouts. I had to keep reminding myself that I not only spend the rest of the day with my kids, but I also need to set a good example for them too. Exercise every day is so important, but also that we need to love ourselves and take care of ourselves. We only get one body in this world. Why not make it something we can truly be proud of?
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I weigh less now than I did in my senior year of high school! That feels so amazing! I also fit into a size 6! My biggest achievement, though, is the piece of mind. I was constantly thinking about the weight I’ve needed to lose for so long, and always felt terrible every time I looked in the mirror or tried to get dressed every day. It feels so good to not have that on my mind constantly!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am a happier, healthier, more motivated person now. I am so excited about my results and my new life style. I want to start a new career helping others feel good and lose weight. I am filled with so much positivity and energy every day!
