Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * I was in a bad place. I was depressed as well as an Alcoholic. I was heading in my Fathers footsteps who passed away at 56 from heart issues. I was unhappy with my health and my weight, yet allowed it to continue. I had Gout in both feet and knees and was taking medication at the age of 28. There were days that I had to crawl up the steps on my hands and knees from the pain. I would lay awake or be munching something late night and watch the P90X infomercial. Always wanting to do it, but also always telling myself that I couldnt do that... I didnt have what it took. Self doubt and depression had a terrible hold on me. So, I would open another bottle and continue down my path of destruction. I had hit a low and was thinking crazy thoughts about my life and how I could end the misery. I never came close to anything crazy, but just having those thoughts was enough to scare me into taking action.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * I had been watching the infomercial over and over and talking to my wife about wanting to do it, though I was still doubting that I had what it took. Then, my Father passed away at the age of 56 from heart issues. It was directly from his lifestyle and I knew it. At the funeral we had pictures of my Father at my age, and at his heaviest. I had 6 different people tell me " Wow, I forgot how big your Dad used to be.... Boy, you look just like him". Now, they didnt mean to be rude or call me fat, they were just expressing their feelings. But, after hearing that over and over it really made me think. At that time I had 2 boys of my own. I kept looking at my Father lying there.... gone, from his choices in life. I had to make changes... I didnt want my children to see me wasting my life by allowing my fear to keep me from what I really wanted out of life. I was tired of running to alcohol everyday and making myself numb to all that was going on around me. It was a never ending circle.
Why did you choose this particular program? * I went with P90X, mainly because Tony Horton had what I wanted. He presented something that I thought I couldnt do... and that made me mad. I was only 29 years old and couldnt do what this 50 year old man was doing. I wanted to be healthy and fit. I still hadnt got the courage to order the program though. Well, Christmas came and my wife surprised me with this as a gift. Neither of us had any idea that she had just changed my/our lives. I started P90X and never looked back. I had no idea the impact that it was going to have on me mentally. It completely changed my body, my mind, my spirit and the relationships in life. I was gaining Pride, which was something that I was unfamiliar with. I have done 4 full rounds to this point and am going strong in Round 5. I am a Beachbody Coach and love sharing with others what this amazing company has done to change my life. It is the real deal in every way!!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * Everything!!!! I love the challenge that it presented to me. When I started I could do 6 pushups and no way could I do any pullups. I loved that it had a nutrition plan to follow since I knew nothing about what was healthy and how to portion anything out for a healthy way of eating. It was all laid out. What workout to do and when. I loved the challenge everyday. Tony is a goofball and I really needed that. I had always thought that fitness programs were full of over the top trainers that were so into themselves and just shout at you. Tony felt like a buddy. I also loved how it was serious enough at just the right times to teach me the discipline that it took for me to achieve what I wanted out of it. An amazing mix of resistance and cardio with the addition of Plyometrics which I had never even heard of when I started.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? * I think the first thing was the length of the workouts and my body being able to handle it. Also, cutting the carbs and bonking. Yoga was particularly difficult in the begining as I had to strength to hold any of the poses. I quickly realized that my alcoholism was going to affect my motivation and ability to complete my workouts. So, I guess I would say that P90X helping me conquer my Alcoholism was the biggest challenge for me. I didnt realize how far down the rabbit whole I had fallen. P90X showed me that I COULD do things that I previously thought I could not. I will never forget hearing Tony say " There is no CANT, it is Presently Struggle with, but No Cant". Hearing that made me apply that to my alcohol and what I was doing to myself. If I was going to change my body and my life, that meant getting sober!! P90X got me Sober!!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I am proud that I have completed 4 full rounds to this point. P90X has helped be become a better husband, Father and got me Sober!! This is the best blessing in my life. The day that my wife believed in me enough to order me P90X, she changed my life. I went from being a distant, weak man to being a fit, health and Sober man. I am stronger than I ever imagined. I signed with Beachbody to become a coach so that I could Pay it Forward and help others that are in need as I was. P90X has literally changed at MY WHOLE LIFE!!! I am blessed to have found the Beachbody community and programs. Simply Amazing. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For myself and my entire family.

I still drink it everyday and plan to for ever. It was the Game Changer. I have my entire family drinking it as well. The combination of P90X and Shakeology is the receipe for success!!! There are days that the thought of that great tasting Chocolate Shake gets me through my workouts. I know that I am giving my body what it needs. I used to get sick all the time, or at least have colds often. I have not had as much as a sniffle since adding Shakeology into my daily nutrition. The stuff is worth its weight in Gold!
