Beachbody has helped me to achieve a level of fitness I never thought possible!
What Lyndsey O. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? Life before I began my transformation was difficult. I have struggled with obesity most of my life. Food has always been a big part of the lives in my family growing up was and a central part in family get-togethers and celebrations. This bad habit I learned followed me into my adult years and I began to worry about health related problems with my heart and my liver due to being overweight, yet I continued to eat poorly and not pay attention what I was eating, or the portion sizes of it all. In addition to this, beside one or two dance classes a week, I rarely if ever would exercise. I would always try to diet on my own but constantly struggled to lose weight and keep it off. It was at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 when I reached my heaviest weight in many years that I finally decide it was time to make a dramatic
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? When I reached my heaviest weight, I found out that there was fat surrounding my liver. Hear news like this was like a wakeup call to me because I knew this was very UN healthy. Before this, I usually thought about being overweight as a physical apperacene issue, but after I found this out it hit me that it was a serious health issue. It was then that I realized that I had to make big changes in order to live a long healthy life, it was no longer about looks, it became about my life and my overall health.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? The things I like most about The Asylum were the challenges it brought. Using the agility ladder was brand new to me and really forced me to sweat my game up. I enjoyed the mix of core, cardio and weight training that this program provided. It was as if every time I progressed, I could try a little more, or do something a little different and it was like a brand new program again.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? During this program, the biggest challenge was my work schedule. For two weekends I had to travel to conferences for a few days. While most people would just take the days off, or use the treadmill in the gym, I decided to not let anything come between me and my workout program. I packed suitcases filled with my weights, my ladder, shakeology and my workout DVDs. I woke up at 4 am before my first meeting and did my workout. It felt good to know that after being over 300 pounds and losing over 150 pounds that I am dedicated and I always make finishing my workouts a priority.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? Beachbody has helped me to achieve a level of fitness I never thought possible! When I weighed over 300 pounds I had begun to believe that I was destined to be overweight my entire life. My entire mindset has changed - Beachbody has given me the tools to transform my body through exercise and diet. Working out has become a part of my daily routine. I enjoy working out and look forward to pressing play each day. I have gained confidence that has spilled over into all areas of my life
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Susan helped me get my Beachbody coaching business of the ground, which as a result I have become even more motivated to workout hard and reach my goals in order to lead by example
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits? Shakeology to me is the most important piece to the fitness puzzle. At one point I reached a stalling point in my weight loss and finally decided to give it a chance. In my first week I lost 12 pounds and my cravings were all gone, which in turn has helped me lose even more weight and keep it off. I never go a day without my shake.
What tips or tools on did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental? I found that the supergym was most helpfull as it helped me schedule my workouts and stay commited. I also found that the Messages Board were also helpfull as it has the answers to almost any fitness and diet related question you cant think of.
