Meet Our First Weekend Winners of the New Year!

Meet Matthew P.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 4th!



At 6’ 1” and 183 lbs., I wasn’t out of shape—I just wanted more. More for myself, more for my wife, and more for my family. I wanted to eat better and be as healthy on the inside, as I was on the outside. I wanted to inspire others while motivating my kids to be good stewards of their own bodies. But most importantly, I wanted to honor God by taking care of the body He gave me.

So I committed to rising at the crack of dawn, doing P90X2®, following the nutrition guide to a T, and drinking Shakeology® daily. Three months later, I lost 13 lbs., went from a 34-inch waist down to a 31, and am in the single digits with my body fat. My core has been strengthened tenfold, which has significantly helped my lower back spasms. And I finally feel comfortable in a swimsuit.

Now that I’m super fit and super healthy, I’m competing in more obstacle races and am getting back into trail running, mountain biking, and kayaking. I even plan to run the Chicago Marathon next October. But my transformation was far from easy. It took a lot of discipline saying no to pizza and donuts, a lot of Energy & Endurance® to get me through my early morning workouts, and it took a lot of support from my family and my Beachbody Coach.

Yet through it all, I stayed focused and NEVER gave up. I feel great and have to say, the results are well worth it.

Meet Stacey H.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 5th!



Two years after the birth of my son, I shot back up to my maternity weight of 210 lbs. My size 18 pants were tight and I had zero self-confidence. My knees and back ached all the time, I was constantly tired, and I had chronic stomach problems. Sadly, even though I was angry, ashamed, and miserable—I wasn’t surprised. I had battled the bulge my entire life, just like my mom and sister.

But it wasn’t until I pulled a muscle in my back from picking up my two-year-old that I had finally had enough. Either I had to change now and set a good example for my son, or he’d turn out exactly like me. So I turned to Slim in 6® and other Beachbody Programs for help.

Slim in 6 was the perfect solution because it eased me back into working out and I quickly started losing weight. In 3 months I lost 50 lbs., went from 40% body fat to 24%, dropped down to a size 10, and am in better shape now than I was in high school. Simply put: I LOOK AND FEEL FANTASTIC!

However, I’m most proud of the fact that I’m setting a great example for my son. Even though he’s so young, he exercises with me all the time and is already learning healthy eating habits. And because of this, I truly believe he won't have weight issues like I did!

Now I’m a happy and healthy mom, wife, and Beachbody Coach—paying it forward and helping others change their lives the way Beachbody helped me change mine.

Meet Erik L.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 6th!



At 35, I found myself looking soft, feeling chubby, and living a lethargic life. I traveled a lot for work, and even though I was pretty good about working out at hotel gyms—I was pretty bad about what I ate. I mean, really, really bad about what I ate.

I knew that if I wanted to get healthy and fit, I’d have to commit to working out daily as well as majorly revamp my diet. Sounded good, but I had no idea how to do it. Then one day, I saw an Insanity® infomercial and learned that not only could I do the workouts pretty much anywhere, it also comes with a nutrition guide, a Coach, and an online support team to help keep me motivated as well as hold me accountable. SCORE! This was exactly what I was looking for. I was sold, and never looked back.

In 60 days, Insanity completely changed my life. The workouts were quick-paced and packed with so many different exercises that boredom was never an issue. And the moves were so intense that it left me feeling completely wasted when done. Which was great, because my goal wasn’t to just get in shape, it was to get ripped—and that I did.

Now I’m in the best shape of my life and have developed much better eating habits, even while on the road. I steer clear of junk and drink protein shakes instead. I lost 8 lbs. and went from 19% body fat down to 9%. I’m so proud of my results, and so is my family. Hey, if I can get ripped at 35, anyone can. You just got to push play everyday and stick with it.

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.

Yeah, nutrition is the name of the game! If you have questions about it, let me know. I'd be happy to help.

As for the marathon, I had written my transformation story last year before the race. Unfortunately, I pulled my hamstring 3 weeks before race day and couldn't run it. emoticon It was a total bummer as not only was I on pace to qualify for Boston, it was a perfect day climate-wise. But alas, nothing I could do about it.

Haven't decided if I'll try this year. I'm finding I am really enjoying the obstacle racing. I do like visiting Chicago though. It's a fun getaway.
