Working Out Has Given Me the Energy to Keep Up with My Kids

Jason D. lost 35 lbs. with P90X and Body Beast. He entered his results into The Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for September 24th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before P90X and Body Beast, I kind of gave up on any type of exercise due to arthritis in my lower back and neck. I was just going to work and sitting around, not really caring about much health-wise. I just didn’t want to do anything that might cause me more pain.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My wife and kids! My wife started eating healthy, so I started eating better also! My kids are very active and I needed to do something to keep up with them, so that they would want to stay with a healthy and active lifestyle.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Since being diagnosed with arthritis about 10 years ago, the arthritis has disintegrated my disks in my lower spine. Then, about three years ago, I found out that the arthritis was in my neck and started to do the same thing there. P90X and Body Beast have helped me become stronger. By having this extra strength in my lower back and core, it has helped reduce the pain to my lower back and relieved a lot of the pressure to my spine.


What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the way it was structured. Each move is explained in great detail, making it very easy to follow!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have gone down to a 31-inch waist from a 36-inch waist. I’ve lost about 35 lbs. I’ve become a lot stronger and just overall in better shape physically. This has helped out in all aspects of my life. Work has become physically easier, and I have no problems keeping up with my babies!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
P90X and Body Beast have changed my life by allowing me to not worry so much about hurting my back just by doing the simplest little things. I can now play with my family without my back hurting all the time. It has given me the energy to be able to keep up with my kids and has shown them how to live an active lifestyle. Work has also become physically easier.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She helped me by staying positive, even through a couple of rough times I was having with some physical injuries. She has always been there for any questions that I’ve had. She has truly been inspirational!
