Meet Taila T. ! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 11th!

Even though I’ve struggled with chronic pain in my neck and shoulders from a car accident 10 years ago, I loved doing TurboFire. Then, when I injured my knee doing something else, my worst thought was, ‘I’m not going to get back to TurboFire for a year!’

It took a month and a half before I could even walk around. Add the pain from my neck and shoulders and I finally said, ‘enough is enough’ and started looking for an answer. I saw some people talking about how Tai Cheng had strengthened their knee so they could get back to doing what they loved.

So I began Tai Cheng with pain in my shoulders, neck and knee. At first, it took all I had to keep up as I struggled with pain in my shoulders holding myself up in plank position. But within a month, I began noticing how my knee was beginning to heal faster and how my body felt so stress-free after the workouts.

Today, my shoulder pain is gone. My neck pain is gone. I can plank pain free and keep up with Dr. Cheng. What I like most about Tai Cheng is that it centered me, strengthened me, and kept me aware of my body and how I can align it better. It’s such a powerful feeling.

But the best thing Tai Cheng gave me is my knee is back to being 100%! I can even do jumps. It is such a blessing. I can’t thank Dr. Cheng and Beachbody enough for giving me back full use of my knee!

In high school and college I was always “the skinny guy.” After several years with a busy family life and work that was totally sedentary, I found myself pushing 200lbs. About 10 years ago, I bought Power 90 and had the best intentions, but lack of time and, more importantly, lack of motivation kept me from committing.

About 4 years ago, I developed plantar fasciitis (a painful foot condition) and thought biking was my only exercise option. The problem was, I couldn’t seem to lose and keep off the desired weight no matter how hard I tried.

At 47 years old, I thought I was running out of time before the weight gain took over my life for good. I committed to Power 90 and hoped that the weight loss and stretching would reduce the plantar pain. I followed the simplified ladder of foods and the weight just fell off me—and the pain disappeared. I was totally hooked.

I started on P90X and soon became a walking advertisement. People would ask me, “What have you done differently?” The answer, for me, was the commitment I made to doing the program even when I didn’t think I had it in me. I pushed myself and the results were amazing. I’m proud of myself for sticking to it and losing the weight. I’ve had to buy new belts because I ran out of holes, dropped 5 inches in the waist—and I’ve had to take all of my suits in to be tailored. Not a bad problem to have.

"I’ve always been a runner, but pregnancy really took a toll on my body. I still had 20 lbs. to lose and this time, running wasn’t cutting it. The extra weight gave my confidence and self-esteem a nose dive.

So I needed to get fit fast—and after I saw an Insanity infomercial, I knew I had found my answer. Being a new mama, I LOVED that I could do the program in the privacy of my own home while my son napped. I LOVED that I could fit in an intense workout in less than an hour.

And I LOVE the fact that I now have a six pack. Shaun T was awesome. I could go on and on about how much I love Insanity. But even though I lost 20 lbs. and developed great muscle definition, my proudest achievement is the MENTAL TOUGHNESS that I gained.

Now I know that I can do absolutely anything I put my mind to. When I wanted to quit… when I would say to myself, ‘I can’t do this’—I would hear Shaun T telling me to ‘dig deeper’—and I would.

When I had my baby, I lost track of being the best me, but completing Insanity, and becoming a Coach, I feel that I am now the BEST version of myself that I could be! "
