Meet Kelly R.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for November 9th!



"I was miserably overweight. Achy joints. No energy. On top of that, I was well on my way to becoming diabetic, and I couldn’t keep up with my daughter. It wasn’t long before I hit an all-time high on the scale and couldn't even fit into my fattest pants. That’s when a friend gave me the greatest gift ever: she asked me to take the Beachbody Challenge.

The support I received from my Challenge Group was amazing. They motivated me every day and helped me overcome emotional eating. I started on Shakeology® and it did wonders to wipe out my cravings. I also worked out to TurboFire® and loved everything about it! Chalene. The variety in the awesome workouts. But what I enjoyed the most was feeling like I was taking part in a class along with the other women in the DVD.

Now I've lost 88 pounds in one year and feel amazing. My joints don't hurt anymore. I have amazing energy, more than enough to keep up with my daughter, and I’m proud to be setting a good example for her. My body no longer holds me back from doing the things that I want to do. In fact, I went from getting out of breath walking short distances to training for the Detroit Marathon!"


Meet Mary B.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for November 10th!



"I was born with spina bifida, a birth defect that affects the spine, and left me paralyzed in a wheelchair. For most of my life I did physical therapy and was able to walk with braces. Then the doctors told me I was getting too big in my hips and legs. After all my progress, I was crushed. I just gave up. I lost my desire to move, so I stayed in my chair.

But I had come too far to stop. With the help of some dedicated people, I started moving again. I drank Shakeology daily and completed Body Gospel. Then I wanted to push myself farther. I chose INSANITY to see if I could complete this high-intensity program using just my upper body. Even though I have to modify, I decided to “go for it.” I want to be fit and healthy to be more independent.

Shakeology and INSANITY changed my life. Now I am eating healthier and feeling the best I’ve ever felt. My overall cholesterol went down to 199 and my energy’s the highest it’s ever been. INSANITY gave me more confidence in working out from my wheelchair, because my muscles are stronger and I’m not as fragile as others think I am. I’ve lost 14 inches and a total of 17 lbs. For someone in a wheelchair who sits 24/7 and can't burn calories like others, it's huge.

I am living proof that anyone can do it, no matter your limitations. I’ve done INSANITY 2 times now, and am going for a 3rd round. If others can do it, why not me?"

"Prior to my “being in shape days,” I was very self-conscious about my body and rarely took off my shirt—even while in the pool. Yep, I was that guy. But when a family member made a comment about my weight, I knew it was time to change.

I started with P90X® three years ago, followed that with several other Beachbody programs, and ended up losing a ton of weight. But when several of my friends recently commented on how skinny I looked, I had no choice but to do Body Beast® and prove that it is possible to bulk up while still maintaining a small waistline.

Over the course of those three months, I gained significant mass in my arms, chest, and legs—all the while keeping that mush in the middle at bay. Regaining weight there was my biggest fear. And for the first time in my life, my wife says I have a butt and that she loves looking at it. Guess I "beasted up" in all the right places.

Besides all the amazing Beachbody workouts, and having access to Coaching and peer support, the one key thing that has made the biggest difference in my transformation has been Shakeology®. It truly is my "Liquid Crack" and I think of it more as a dessert than a "healthy meal." If I run out, my energy level plummets, and I start to go through withdrawals.

And even though I weigh more now than I did before starting my first round of P90X back in 2009, my body shape is completely different. But in a good way, of course! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever look "ripped" like those people on infomercials. But I do. And I love it. Thank you Beachbody."

You can change your life, too. Take The Beachbody Challenge™, for the ultimate motivation to get fit! Select any Beachbody® program and once you complete it, share your results for your chance to win cash and prizes.

Mary Bella, I have watched you since you first came into our group, and I must say I have been impressed from Day one with your creativity and determination. It has not been easy, and you have stuck with it! You are truly a living miracle worker, Mary, and I pray for you to keep going and going. Remember when we were doing Body Gospel at the same time? I do. And when you told us you were going to do INSANITY and Jeremy suggested you video some of your modifications moves, remember that? You are a super role model of hope for us all!!!!!
