†Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Shaylin is an independent Beachbody Coach.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I decided to get in shape, I ate junk food almost constantly during the day, I never worked out, and I hated the way my body looked and felt. I knew I wanted my body to look different, but I didn’t know where to start.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I had my first son and realized that the way I was eating and living my life would be influencing him. I wanted to be able to get down and play with him as he grows instead of sitting on the side watching him play. I wanted him to eat healthy as he grew up, but I knew he would eat what I was eating. I realized that I needed to show him that eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle was easy to do.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I didn’t know how to eat healthy, and I never planned my meals out. So, I would look in my fridge, see that there wasn’t anything healthy in there, and so I would wait long enough that I became really hungry and then ended up eating anything I could find. FOCUS T25 and TurboFire came with some amazing meal ideas, and my Coach was such an amazing support in helping me find delicious, healthy meals, and reminding me to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day instead of three large ones. Having Shakeology also helped because I knew that I was going to drink that every day for lunch, so it was one less meal to plan!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
After I finished T25, I moved onto TurboFire and I loved how much energy Chalene Johnson has in every workout! She makes it feel like you are in a live class with her and she makes me feel so energized to be working out!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Not only do I feel like I look better, but my self confidence is back! I have so much more energy, I’m more happy with those around me, and I finally feel healthy! I’m most proud of my commitment to this healthy life style switch, and sticking to it every single day!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy and I actually look forward to working out every day! When I don’t work out, my body can tell! I also crave healthy food more than I crave junk food! I know that the more healthy I eat and work out, my desire for junk food will decrease immensely!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It was so nice to have help and support from other people who were in the same boat as I was! Everyone was so kind and uplifting! It was also super helpful to get ideas for meals when I was in a rut with food!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She is so amazing with everything! She checks in with me at least one or two times a week asking if I have any questions, making sure my meals are planned, and offers so many meal ideas! She is a good accountability partner in making sure I get my daily workout in, and she is so encouraging!
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?
I think Shakeology really helped me lose a lot of the weight that I did, and it contributed to my body feeling healthier than ever before! I know that the energy and endurance that I have to last the whole day without a nap with a small child is because of Shakeology!2
