I told my doctor I’d do it—and I did!

Meet Christy B.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 12th!



Growing up, I always had to watch my weight. After I had children, I went on a roller coaster of dieting—I was the “Queen of Dieting” through my 20’s, 30’s and 40s. As I headed for the dreaded “50” mark, I was a mess. Too heavy. My blood pressure out of control. I absolutely hated myself.

When I started having heart palpitations, my doctor threatened blood pressure meds. I just wasn’t going to let that happen. So on January 1, 2012, I started Les Mills Pump and FELL IN LOVE!!! The first month, I lost 7 lbs. and 8.5 inches. I knew I had found my soul mate workout Then I added Shakeology and TurboFire and I was rocking.

At 51, I’m in the best shape of my life. So far, I’ve lost 28 pounds and my blood pressure went from 165/89 to a nice normal range of 119/64! My doctor was shocked and he’s so proud. I owe it all to Shakeology and Chalene for all the high energy she brings to my TV. I’m so pyched for LES MILLS COMBAT, I’ve already ordered it!

Did you get most of your results from Les Mills Pump or doing Turbofire? I've been wanting to get Les Mills Pump. Your story is very encouraging!

Thanks for the motivation. I just turned 51 myself and I started my first challenge/exercise program about 1.5 months ago. I'm still trying to get into a routine that works for me. I see you started about 1 year ago and that helps motivate because it's easy to expect quick results and be discouraged when it doesn't happen over night. Again...thank you!

Hi, I started out doing 3 rounds of Les Mills Pump on January 1, 2012. After I was done, I incorporated Turbo Fire as my cardio 3 days a week and then did the Les Mills pump 3 days a week. Most of my weight loss came from Les Mills Pump.

Yes, I did get discouraged because when I was younger, the weight loss would be faster. I strongly believe that the weight training that I did with Les Mills Pump is great for our age to help prevent muscle and bone loss. It might have taken a little longer, but very worthwhile! Thanks
