Robert N.
I wanted to take the challenge because I could do it in my own home . . . I started at 300 pounds and I am down to 175 pounds now.
What Robert N. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * I was miserbale. I had no energy, and just wanted to sit around and watch tv. I was cheating myself and my family. I felt embarrassed and ashamed how I let myself go over the last 4 years. I went from being a fit individual to being obese over a 4 year span. I truly fell into the everyday work schedule and eating fast food 5-10 times a week. What I hated most of all was that I couldn't hold my end of the bargain to keeping up with my daughter. She wanted me to do something and i would tell her no because I was lazy. To me that was not being a dad that I truly should be.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * My wife became pregnant and are son was going to be born in June 2011. I told myself there is no way I can contribute to my family living the same life style. I was upset what I had become and not being the dad I think I physically could be. I started my journey on January 30, 2011 devoted to change my life. I was not going to have a wife, 2 kids, and be obese. I felt like I was on the road of destruction until I found out my wife was pregnant. My son was born on June 15, 2011 and i had lost 80 pounds! As of May 21st, 2012 I have continued the journey using P90X and I have lost a total of 125 pounds! I also have became a firefighter in August 2011 in my town, and physically have no problems because of P90X! I can't imagine being a firefighter without the program! My wife started P90X in January 2012 and she has lost 30 pounds year to date! The whole family is bringing it!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * My biggest challenged I faced was everyday life. I got tired anytime I walked or had to do any physcial activity. I would get tired so much going up a flight of stairs and thats no joke! I hated it! I couldn't even play with my daughter most of the time because I got winded! I truly was cheating myself and her. I could play for a few minutes but I would be tired right away. Doing P90X has completely changed this. I have down a complete overhaul in my health care! I never get tired doing anything! It is like I am the energizer bunny! It feels good that I can go as long as I want and have more in the tank if I need it. I am done cheating my family! I started doing P90X at a very heavy weight but Tony had alternate moves during the process and I did those. I continued and pushed through it until one day I could do all the moves! Over time you get stronger and as long as you stick with it, you will get there!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * P90X change it up everyday. Then when you got comfortable, it was time to change up the order of the workouts in the phases. The program keeps your body guessing and muscle confusion is the real deal!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I started at 300 pounds and I am down to 175 pounds now. I started with 3 regular push ups in 1 minute and now I can do 60 push ups in the same time. I took my muscle building to another level. I wasn't sure what my body fat % was but I know it was high! Today I am at 10% and continuing to lower that number. Tony Horton is motivating and funny at the same time! I am proud to say I have completed P90X and continue with the program! People ask me what I did to loose weight and I say P90X. It turns into a 10 minute conversation and I find out weeks later they ordered it and they start it! Awesome feeling!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * Not sure where to begin! I am so crazy about my health and others now! I want to help others achieve their goals and motivate! I have so many people I know seek my advice on what they can do to change what their doing. The biggest thing for me is that my family is active and we don't sit around on the couch anymore. We are always outside doing something and enjoying life more then ever! Thank you!
