Meet Tyric S.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 24th!

I honestly thought I wasn’t that out of shape. I knew I needed to exercise more, but I didn’t realize how badly I felt about myself until I saw my reflection in the mirror. Not pretty. One thing that motivated me to change my life was my upcoming wedding. You know, guys want to look good on that day, too.

But that wasn’t what really got me to commit. I was ridiculously tired all the time and didn’t want to go outside to play with my son. I’d tell him to go play by himself. I had an absentee father growing up, and I had promised myself I’d always be there for my son—and I was breaking that promise.

I’d seen a friend lose about 20lbs doing P90X. He told me all I had to do was pop in the DVD, hit play and just do what they do. I added Insanity and P90X2 to my workout routine. Since I started, I’ve lost 42lbs and went from 28% body fat to just 5%! I went from that tired slob to a lean machine.

The best part about my transformation is that I became a better husband—and a much better father. As a family we’re way more active. My wife has had amazing success as well, and my son is more active and a better athlete because of it all. I now help other people to do what we’ve done as a family, and it’s the most rewarding “job” I’ve ever had.

I’ve always had weight issues. Back in grade six is when I became really self-conscious about it. I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed that I would wear sweaters all year around, no matter how hot it was outside. After having a difficult time in public school, I decided to switch to online home schooling. Food quickly became my best friend.

By the end of high school, I was barely 5ft tall, weighed 210lbs, and wore size 20 jeans. I was severely depressed, embarrassed and fat. I was in a dark place, questioning my life when I heard about P90X. I said, ‘it’s do or die,’ so I forced myself to do it.

I felt this spark I had never felt before. It wasn’t easy, but I knew right away that this was going to save my life. It was a challenge completely out of my comfort zone. At first I could barely get through the warm-up. I would hit pause, stop to catch my breath, and then ask myself if this was really what I wanted to do.

The answer was always YES! So I’d get up, press play and force myself to keep going. I noticed changes very quickly and within a few weeks my ‘fat’ clothes didn’t fit anymore! I felt like I was alive again.

My life has changed drastically since I started P90X. I’ve lost 77 lbs so far. I eat very clean diet- lots of fruits and vegetables, gluten free and no dairy. I also replace one meal a day with Shakeology. For the first time in my life I can finally say that I am truly happy!

Best of all, I can say that I took charge of my life and I know that I can achieve anything I set my mind to!

Meet Kurt E.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for December 25th!

Three years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and its intense antibiotic regiment zapped ALL my energy. Since just getting out of bed was a huge struggle, exercising was out of the question. As a result, I gained a ton of weight. After a year of being completely exhausted and missing out on living life with my two teenage boys, I took matters into my own hands and joined a Fit Club where I was introduced to my Coach, Power 90® and Shakeology®.

Within the first 2 weeks of doing Power 90 and drinking Shakeology, I lost weight, gained energy, and felt a million times better. Now I eat 5 meals a day and Shakeology is always one of them. And I have to say, I truly believe that delicious shake was key to my increased energy and getting better sleep, which then gave me the oomph to workout.

Turns out, my greatest challenge was in my head and not what my body could or could not physically achieve. At first, I wasn’t sure I could do an "at home program" and stick with it for 90 days. But boy was I wrong! Working out at home was so much better than any gym experience I've had in the past. Tony and his team are very motivating. And the online Beachbody community was an essential part of my success.

In 90 days, I lost 18 pounds, a total of 11.5 inches, and dropped two waist sizes (36 to a 32). But my most important achievement has nothing to do with my looks—and everything to do with how I feel. Now I have so much more energy, sleep better, and my overall health has improved greatly. Thanks Beachbody. And my sons thank you, too.
