Firefighter gets fit with Shakeology and Beachbody programs!
Firefighter gets fit with Shakeology and Beachbody programs!

Meet Kyle B.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 22nd!



In high school I played offensive line and was expected to be as big as possible, so I got into the habit of eating anything and everything in sight. When my weight crept up to 250 lbs. during my freshman year of college, I felt absolutely awful, but had no idea how to downsize. Then a sports injury cut my athletic dreams, and college days, short. So I moved home to become a firefighter—just like my dad.

But before my First Responder days could begin, I knew I had to lose a ton of weight. I mean, how was I supposed to pull someone out of a burning building when I was too out of shape to get to them in time? With that realization, I vowed to lose weight, get in shape, and not let my poor physical condition be the reason someone didn’t make it out of a fire alive.

I had seen several Beachbody® infomercials on TV and they all promised great things, so I gave a few a try. First I did INSANITY®. Figured I needed something pretty insane to start peeling off those pounds. Then I moved on to P90X®, and just recently completed INSANITY: THE ASYLUM® Vol. 1. I also drank Shakeology®, which gave me a ton of energy and helped me slim down.

Between those three incredible workout programs, Shakeology, and completely revamping my diet, I lost 50 pounds, went from a 40” waist down to 31”, and shredded 20% of my body fat. Now I have as little body fat as an elite athlete, sporting an amazingly low 6%. I can see muscles that I didn’t even know I had. Finally have abs. And am smaller now that I was in 6th grade! Old friends don’t even recognize me anymore because I’ve lost so much weight. And just recently, I visited an aunt whom I hadn’t seen in awhile and she had no idea who I was. WOW. Talk about change.

Now I’m a Beachbody Coach, and a fit and healthy firefighter. I haven't had to rescue anyone from a burning building yet, but when that day comes, I know I’m now physically capable of doing it. And there’s no better feeling than that! I’m a completely different person now, and boy does it feel great.

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.

This makes me really happy to read!

As a firefighter myself and new Beachbody Coach, I'm working to get Firefighters and Emergency Responders to change their lives!
I post about firefighter Line Of Duty Deaths and not very many die in fires, it's the cardiac and other health issues like obesity that kill us because of the extreme excertion we put on our bodies.

We need to stay fit because if we can't perform our duties to help the Public, how can we help ourselves when we néed it?

I hate to see my Broters and Sisters be unhealthy because I don't want to be unhealthy anymore so I've started on T25 created a Beachbody FB page for firefighters and their families and anyone who wants to like it and change their lives!
