Meet Roberto C.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 21st!

Mi vida antes era sedentaria, no le tomaba mucho énfasis al ejercicio. Siempre estaba débil, cansado y no descansaba bien. En fin, era una persona de muy poca disciplina conmigo mismo.

El nacimiento de mi hija me inspiró a cambiar porque me di cuenta de que ya no era yo solo. Pensé en lo que pasaría si un día ella quiere jugar conmigo. No sé que haría, no puedo ser tan activo ¡y siempre estoy cansado! Además, había tenido una lesión que me hizo engordar un poco más. Allí decidí tomar control de mi vida.

Comencé El Reto Beachbody™ y poco a poco mi cuerpo fue cambiando. En un round de INSANITY® perdí 61 libras y en uno de Asylum perdí 17 libras. Mi presión arterial está en su mejor nivel, el colesterol, en fin, todo mi organismo mejoró un gran cambio y perdí un total de 80 libras. Shaun T es el mejor entrenador motivacional, gracias a su motivación hoy luzco una mejor figura y una mejor salud para seguir contando lo que INSANITY logró en mi.

My life was sedentary and I didn’t pay enough attention to exercise. I was always tired, weak, and could not rest well. In short, I had very little discipline with myself.

My daughter’s birth motivated me to change because it made me realize I was not alone anymore. I wondered what would happen if one day she wanted to play with me. I wouldn’t know what to do, I can’t be so active and I’m always tired! Besides, I had an injury that made me gain a bit more weight. That’s when I decided to take control over my life.

I started the Beachbody Challenge™, and little by little my entire body changed. I lost 61 lbs in one round of INSANITY® and 17 lbs in one of Asylum. My blood pressure is at its best level, the cholesterol, in short, all my body underwent a great change and I lost a total of 80 lbs. Shaun T is the best motivational trainer, thanks to his motivation I have a better shape and a better health to keep telling everybody what INSANITY has done for me.

Meet Isatel D.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 22nd!

I’ve overcome a lot of obstacles in my life. I was born legally blind, but that didn’t stop me from being the first in my family to graduate from college and travel through Europe. Nothing really stopped me, except the extra weight I’ve been carrying. While in a Freedom from Obesity group at my church, I realized Body Gospel and Shakeology could radically simplify my weight loss plan. I’m not trying to be funny here, but thank God for Body Gospel. Honestly, it saved me.

The fact that I could worship God for His goodness and strength while I worked out was just awesome. I loved the music. I loved the daily devotions. It was just a great fit for me. Since I started the journey, I’ve lost 45lbs and no longer shop in the Plus Size store. Yay! Another miracle.

The other thing I discovered that really helped with my overall well-being was Shakeology. I recently found out that I’m gluten intolerant, which made planning my meals pretty difficult. With Shakeology, all I do is prepare my shake the night before and I’m good to go the next morning. I take the bus, so I always take my daily items with me. Not having to lug a bag full of stuff is a bonus. Not to mention that I have a sweet tooth, so the gluten-free chocolate-flavored Shakeology is a total treat.

I’m so grateful for Beachbody, and the transformation I’ve made because of the support I’ve found being coached, and now as a coach myself. I feel truly blessed.

Meet John H.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 23rd!

Up until a few years ago, I never thought much about health and fitness. As a kid, I ate whatever food was put in front of me and never excelled at any sports. So as time passed, I packed on the pounds and became very lethargic. Even though I was extremely frustrated with my weight and didn't like what I saw in the mirror, I had no idea what to do about it and eventually lost hope that I’d ever see a real change in myself.

But after losing both of my parents in two years due to health-related issues, I realized that if I didn’t change my ways, I’d be next. So I went on a diet, lost 45 lbs., then hit a plateau. It wasn’t until I started doing Hip Hop Abs®, drinking Shakeology® daily, and sticking to the nutrition plan that the weight started melting away.

So far I’ve lost 68 pounds (from 267 down to 199 lbs.) and a MASSIVE AMOUNT of body fat (from 30% down to 12%). But beyond my impressive stats, when I looked in the mirror, I’m so proud of what I see. And it feels amazing to hear others tell me how great I look. This is the first time since high school that I weigh less than 200 lbs. and words can’t express how proud I am of myself for that accomplishment.

My life has drastically changed since joining my Challenge Group and completing Hip Hop Abs. Now I’m a Beachbody Coach and I’m helping others change their lives, too. I feel as if I’m doing my parents proud and that they’re watching over me in my quest to be fit and help others do the same. My confidence has gone through the roof and I'm loving life! And none of this would be possible without Beachbody, MY coach, and everyone’s support. I owe you all my life. Really, I do. Thank you.

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.
