What Frederick B. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? I ran in over 100 triathlons over the years and had pretty severe osteoarthritis in my right hip as had ground it down with all of the running. Began P90X in Feb 2009 and struggled with it because of my hip. I had gradually gotten up over 200 lbs. Couldn't do the whole program due to limitations of pain. Was frustrating gaining weight and struggling with the workouts. Had my hip replaced in August 2010 and completely took my pain away. Surgeon gave me permission to start back on P90X. Feb 1st 2011 my weight was back to 208, Began P90X & made a commitment to the diet program and WOW. Flexibilty returned shed weight pretty quickly and lost 20 lbs the first month. Am down 40 lbs now and have gradually shaped my form. I haven't been in this good of shape since my teens and am 55. I feel great and am a hard core disciple of the program. I feel like I eat all the time (every 3-4 hours) and try to eat a gram of protein per body weight lb each day.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? My total hip replacement... I can no longer run and was looking for something else to get/ stay in shape... adding the diet program was the key... IT REALLY WORKS! Tired of being heavy and feeling sluggish. Has changed my life
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? the routine & regimen of the program... is something different everyday too which keeps it interesting
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? My hip pain and the resulting decision to replace the hip. My fitness level from P90X helped me dramatically in my recovery
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? My weight is down 44 lbs from 208, My waist is 32 from 36. In the beginning I couldn't do even one pullup without assistance from the chair and now do 15-20. Most of my weights and reps have gone up 75-100% from my beginning. Most all of my pushup sets are in the 30- 45 range, I could barely do 15 in the begininng. My abs show for the FIRST time in my life and my musculature is very defined especially for my age. Am very proud of how quickly I recovered from my surgery and so is my doctor as he asked me repeatedly about the program on my one year follow up as he said had never had a patient improve so much. I am asked all the time what my secret is -- P90X
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? She supported me in the beginning when i first got going and gave me the boost to stick with it! THANKS 1,000,000 Mary
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits?
What tips or tools on did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental? GET THE BANDS!... The bands give you NO excuse not to do the workout when you travel as they are like dumbells on a rope. I also am a hard core believer in the shake as a meal replacement as is usually all I eat in the evening
