Meet John C.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for February 1st!



Over the years, I've gained some weight. No big thing, I thought. Until I went in for my annual check-up and discovered that I weighed 180-and I am 5'4 so every pound really showed. My cholesterol was sky-high, and my doctor said I needed to get fit. Fast.

I work in a small office with just 5 guys. Right after my physical, a couple of them started doing P90X. They asked me, but I've had both hips and knees replaced due to my arthritis, so I just couldn't see me doing that sort of rigorous workout. It was a good excuse, but when one of the guys tossed an envelope of Shakeology on my desk, I couldn't say no.

And I'm glad I didn't. He said he was starting a Challenge Group with everybody in the office. I loved the energy Shakeology was giving me, so I signed up, too. He recommended Power 90, so I gave it a try, starting slowly because of my hips and knees. The modifications were great-they helped me find my "groove."

And I lost 26 lbs. after 90 days. My pants went from size 34 to size 31, my body fat dropped from 30% to 17%, and for the first time in my life-I had abs! My confidence soared. My relationship with my wife got so much better. And I wound up donating 20 pairs of "fat" pants to charity!

I really want to thank my Coach, Brian. He's a great motivator. Not just by example, but his no-nonsense approach ("Slacker!") kept me on track. Now my wife and I are both Coaches and we're leading our second Challenge Group of our own.

With a heart murmur, spinal issues, and muscle spasms, exercising was no easy task. It was an uphill battle every time I tried to work out. In the end I would end up tired and defeated. I tried many things to lose weight, but nothing worked. I even took pills that were bad for my health!

On top of my physical obstacles I was also experiencing anxiety. I would begin to stress eat and as a result, each attempt to lose weight left me worse off than before. I felt like I was no longer in control.

One day I felt so defeated I found myself crying in bed—and that’s when it finally hit me… Enough was enough.! I had to do something, I had to save myself from the depression I had fallen in to and finally reach a healthy weight. So I started doing research and found The Beachbody Challenge through a Success Story on Facebook. Since that day my life has gotten so much better. My overall health has improved, and I have so much more energy and endurance!


Before, when I would try to exercise, my health issues always held me back. But now it’s different. Beachbody programs allowed me to modify as much as I needed, but still gave me amazing results! Also, participating in a Beachbody Challenge Group was very so helpful. The Challenge Group gave me the support and motivation I needed to do more and push harder. Teambeachbody.com was also extremely helpful, I learned a lot from the tips and message boards and was able to stay on track with my workouts using Supergym.

With the combination of Shakeology and Brazil Butt Lift and TurboFire I achieved my fitness goals. In just two and a half months I successfully lost 16 pounds. I can now buy clothes that were impossible to wear before –and that’s a very rewarding achievement for me. But best of all,, my self-esteem, my self-image, and my health have all changed for the better. Thanks to Beachbody I’m happer and healthier!

Con un soplo en el corazón, problemas de la columna vertebral, problemas en las rodillas y espasmos musculares hacer ejercicios no era fácil. Era una batalla cuesta arriba cada vez que trataba de hacer ejercicio. Al final terminaba muy cansada y derrotada. Intente varios métodos diferentes para bajar de peso, pero nada funcionó. Incluso tomé pastillas que lo que me hacían era daño a mi salud!

Además de los obstáculos físicos también tenía mucha ansiedad y pasaba por una depresión y no me daban animos de nada. Comenzaba a comer por estrés y ansiedad, como resultado aumentaba cada dia mas . Cada intento para perder peso me dejaba con mas peso que antes. Sentía que había perdido el control.

Un día me sentía tan derrotada, que me puse a llorar en la cama, y fue entonces cuando finalmente me di cuenta y dije ... ¡Basta! Tenía que hacer algo, tenia que salvarme de la depresión en la cual había caído, y finalmente llegar a un peso saludable y sentirme mejor. Así que empecé a investigar y encontré a Beachbody a través de una historia de éxito en Facebook. Desde ese día mi vida ha cambiado completamente. Mi salud ha mejorado, y tengo mucha más energía y condición física y mucho mejor animo!

Antes, cuando trataba de hacer ejercicio, mis problemas de salud siempre me lo impedían. Los programas de Beachbody me permitieron modificar los ejercicios a mis necesidades. ¡Pero aún así logre resultados asombrosos! Además, participar en un grupo de Reto me ayudo mucho. El grupo de Reto me dio el apoyo y la motivación que necesitaba para hacer más y usar todas mis fuerzas. Teambeachbody.com también fue muy útil, aprendí mucho de los consejos y foros de mensajes. Incluso, me ayuda a mantenerme disciplinada con mis entrenamientos con la ayuda del Supergym.

Con la combinación de Shakeology, Turbo Jam y Brazil Butt Lift he logrado mis objetivos. En sólo dos meses y medio he conseguido perder 16 libras. Ahora puedo comprar ropa que antes no podía y eso es un logro muy gratificante para mí. Pero lo mejor de todo es que mi autoestima, la imagen que tengo de mi misma, y mi salud han cambiado para mejor. Gracias a Beachbody estoy feliz y vivo más saludable!

After doing P90X and P90X2, I thought I was in pretty good shape. So I was looking for what I called a “cardio challenge”—something that could take me to another level of fitness.

And I got it when friends recommended INSANITY: THE ASYLUM®, Volume 1. It was my first introduction to the craziness Shaun T brings to the table and it was awesome!

I’d been a runner for decades, but my wife and I were ready for that next step. We desired a good cardio and resistance program, but with three young kids and our two full-time jobs, we needed something we could do at home before our kids woke up (because if you think INSANITY is crazy, see what happens to a family of five after the kids wake up!).

Shaun T was amazing. Really intense, but inspiring. And that’s exactly what we needed. He really helped us reach our fitness goals. And when we added Shakeology to our routine, we were hooked. Chocolate Shakeology served as my breakfast throughout my ASYLUM work. It helped replenish energy post workout and put me on an ideal nutrition path for the remainder of the day.

I’ve lost a total of 20 pounds with Beachbody®, and ASYLUM really helped me lose that last bit of stubborn belly fat AND pack on more lean muscle than I ever imagined possible! Even better, my blood work numbers improved immensely and my doctor was so amazed he said I should write a book about whatever I was doing!

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.
