Meet Trish K.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 18th!



I was tired of shopping in the Women’s Plus Size department, being completely out of breath from walking up just one flight of stairs, and shuffling through life with stiff knees and joints. I wanted to be able to get down on the floor and play with my grandkids without needing help standing back up. I wanted to feel good about myself when wearing shorts or a swimsuit. And I really, really, really wanted to get off those high blood pressure meds that I’d been taking for the past 25 years. So I turned to my husband for help.

Being the fabulous Beachbody Coach that he is, he suggested I give Body Gospel a try—and thank God I did. Body Gospel was the perfect program for me. It was low-impact (which I absolutely needed), fun, spiritual, and uplifting. And since I’m a Christian and find my strength through the Lord, the praise and worship music was key to keeping me focused and motivated.

So far, I’ve lost 38 lbs., went from a size 18 to a 12, have ridiculous amounts of energy, and feel absolutely amazing! I’ve also ditched my two old blood pressure meds and have since switched to a very low dose. Friends constantly compliment me on my weight loss, and I recently had someone ask if I had gastric bypass surgery. Nope, I did it the right way—through diet and exercise.

Not only have I been blessed with an amazing husband whose support and encouragement has gotten me to where I am today, I’m also very thankful for my Facebook group, Stayfit, who helped keep me going when the times got tough. Without all this support, there’s no way I would have been this successful. My heart goes out to everyone. You all saved my life.

Meet Tezra L.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 19th!



At the ripe young age of 40, I was killing myself with destructive habits. My life consisted of working, eating, going to happy hour, eating more, drinking more, watching TV, eating even more, going to sleep—then repeat. And even though I tried losing weight with Weight Watchers and Herbalife, the results never stuck. Eventually, I couldn't stand to look at myself in the mirror because I was so disgusted with who I'd become. So when my doctor told me that if I didn't change I wouldn't see my 45th birthday—sadly, I hoped she was right.

Deep down inside I knew that there had to be more to life. So I asked God to forgive me for abusing my body and prayed for help. When I say, “Thank God for Beachbody®!” I mean it literally. I prayed, He answered. And He put not one, but THREE Beachbody programs, and Shakeology®, into my life.

First I did P90X®. My goal was to get strong enough to do a pull-up and REAL push-ups (not the “girl” kind). P90X was tough, but apparently, so was I. Then I moved on to Chalean Extreme® because I wanted to continue toning up while sculpting killer arms (which I did). My 3rd program was LES MILLS PUMP® which pumped up my flat-as-a-pancake calves and lifted my butt. When I started drinking Shakeology, my blood pressure and weight started to drop, and my hair and nails began growing like wildfire.

But even though I eventually had great success, the first 7 months were incredibly tough. I was only losing about 2 lbs. per month and was frustrated at how slowly my body was responding. Almost daily I wanted to call it quits, but right when I was about to walk away, Tony, Chalene, or Shaun T. would say something that kept me going. And then there was my wonderful Facebook group who encouraged me daily to push harder and not give up before “the miracle happens”.

It took a full year, but "the miracle” did happen. I dropped 5 clothing sizes and lost 50 pounds. I’m off my high-blood pressure meds and anti-depressants. And I finally love my body, and myself. Now I’m paying it forward as a Beachbody Coach, helping others achieve success.

My whole life I’ve been the super skinny kid who was ridiculously strong. But I was tired of being that guy. I’ve always wanted to be big. And by “big” I mean massive, buff, intimidating. Ever since I could remember, my dream was to walk into a gym and OWN IT! Have jaws drop and eyes bulge. I didn’t want guys to think twice about messing with me. So that’s why I did Body Beast®! I wanted to pack on some serious mass and lose that little boy image I’ve been carting around my whole life. And BAM, that’s exactly what I did.

I gained about 5 lbs of lean muscle on P90X, and then 9 more with Body Beast. Gained 5 inches in my chest, and went from 21% body fat down to 9%. Beast pushed me to the max during every workout. There wasn’t a moment where I was bored or said to myself, “I’ve already done this before”—because I hadn’t. Beast showed me new ways to lift weights, and the nutrition guide told me exactly what I needed to eat in order to pack on the pounds.

I also started drinking Shakeology®, which has truly changed my life. Not only does Shakeology give me tons more energy, it has drastically improved my digestion, and just makes me feel healthier overall. Super Suma and Max Creatine are amazing, too, because they helped me push my limits!

Even though I’m the type of guy who does whatever it takes to get things done, my Beachbody Coach, Wayne, was instrumental in my success. He was incredibly motivating, knowledgeable, and answered my questions on the fly. My Facebook group was very supportive and helped me out a lot.

Now I feel so incredibly strong, healthy, and am ready to take on the world! People do double takes all the time and there couldn’t be a better feeling in the world than that. When asked how I did it, I tell them I UNLEASHED THE BEAST! Best of all, I’ve had to buy new shirts since my old stuff doesn’t come close to fitting anymore. XL shirts now fit me really well and my wife says she's very happy with my results! Like they say: Happy wife, happy life. I can’t say enough about Body Beast other than IT ROCKS HARD CORE!

Meet Jessica C.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 21st!



I’ve always been the girl with the “pretty face”—not the pretty body. I wore a women's size 14 in 7th grade and ballooned up to a size 28 by age 17. To try and lose weight, I’d starve myself all day, only to binge at night. And simple things like walking down the street or carrying groceries left me completely exhausted.

Even though I hated myself and my body, I loved my two young boys and knew that if I didn’t lose weight and get healthy, I wouldn’t be around to watch them grow up. Thankfully, a friend encouraged me to give ChaLEAN Extreme® a try—and since I had nothing to lose but a ton of weight—decided to do just that. Instantly, I started to lose weight and my whole outlook on life began to change. Two months and 16 lbs later, I moved on to TurboFire® and my body transformed beyond my wildest expectations.

I was losing an entire clothing size every 4-6 weeks, and after three rounds of TurboFire, I’m now a healthy size 8. AN EIGHT! I hadn’t worn something that small since 5th grade, a far cry from "small" back then. But my physical transformation didn’t happen solely because I was working out everyday. Much of my success had to do with changing my diet and replacing one meal a day with Shakeology®. Not only does Shakeology taste amazing, it curbs my cravings while giving me peace of mind that I’m fueling my body with proper nutrition. Now I have tons more energy and my digestion has dramatically improved.

Since beginning these Beachbody programs 9 months ago, I’ve lost 90 lbs., went from a 49” waist down to a 32, and dropped from a size 20 to an 8. I feel strong, beautiful, healthy, and most importantly—EMPOWERED! I'm now a Beachbody Coach and a Certified Turbo Kick instructor.

After 36 years of living in hell, I'm finally loving life. I believe that my life has played out just the way God intended,and despite all the challenges I've had to overcome, this was His plan for me. Now, I have the strength, confidence and know-how to help others transform their lives the way my Coach helped me change mine. Thank you Beachbody, and thank you Chalene, for giving me back my life!
