Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * Prior to my lifestyle change, I was definitely the "life of the party". I was just told the other day how I was the "fat, funny guy" (now apparently I'm not so funny, lol). I used to consume over 20 shots of liquor a night, 5-6 nights a week! I was unhappy because I was out of shape, and I was awful for my family. My wife & I got married on June 17th 2011, we have two small boys(at the time ages 4 & 1), my reckless lifestyle wasn't only detrimental to myself, but to my family as well. With my weight being 285lbs, I had no cares & showed blatant disregard for my family. If I hadn't changed my lifestyle, there isn't a doubt in my mind that I would have lost them.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * As I stated before, if I didn't change my lifestyle, I would've lost my family, but something happened that really opened my eyes. In August 2011, I started getting very severe chest pains, the way I had led my life was starting to catch up with me. I was waking up around 5am several nights in a row, clinching my chest, experiencing shortness of breath, a very sharp pain in my chest with my left arm tingling. I don't know if it was a heart or a panic attack, what I do know is it scared me. I started thinking about my family, I wasn't about to lose them, they were about to lose ME! The very next day I started P90X!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * There are so many challenges I've faced when I first started, when I began I was social with people who lived unhealthy lives. These people I called my friends, whether the didn't believe I could do it or they didn't want me to, would belittle the change that I had embraced. I would get calls to come out drinking and when I told them I had to workout they would get upset and say things anybody should regret. I was 27 years old, and my eyes were finally wide open, I saw the big picture, that life isn't about how much you can drink or who you hurt, it's about living life to the fullest and how many people you can HELP!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * The variety! After completing P90X & Insanity, I would definitely say that being able to mix and match with the Hybrid workout, or even just doing the original workout schedules! They feel like they are designed almost specifically for me :-). Being able to do the workouts in my garage would have to be the X-Factor though. No matter what my day consists of, I can just throw on a pair shorts, shoes, and get to work! I'm in and out in roughly an hour, and it was all accomplished without ever stepping foot inside a gym! It's incredible, a few years ago, I never thought an at home workout would work, boy was I wrong!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * This is my favorite part :-D!! When I first started, I weighed 285lbs, my body fat percent was around 26%... TODAY, I'm 195lbs with 11% body fat!!! I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to accomplish my goals. Life seemed so hard when I was 285lbs, either by scrutiny or my poor choices in what I was putting in my body, I was able to conquer my addictions to become (from what my wife, mother & mother-in-law tell me) an incredible father and amazing husband!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * When I first started, I was lost. I never knew what I was looking for and I found myself at the bottom of a bottle almost every night, that recklessness almost lost me my family... After I decided to make this lifestyle change, thanks to Shakeology curbing my cravings, I quit drinking! I'm now the MAN that my family always longed for, and the MAN they deserved for so long! I'm not the same person, not by a long shot, and no matter the "friends" I've lost along the way, having my family by my side makes it all worth while!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? After about a month of me starting, Erin found me in the P90X Facebook page and struck up a conversation. I joined her accountability group, and her advice and support throughout this journey has been INCREDIBLE! She eventually convinced me to be a Coach myself, and after I made that leap I would say is when I became even more serious about getting into shape! While motivating others, I found myself motivating myself and pushing my limits. If Erin hadn't of ever approached me, , I never would have found my full potential!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Whether it be questions pertaining to my diet, or about replacing workouts with other days, she always had an excellent answer that worked with me. If I wasn't in the group even a single day, she would contact me asking where I was, keeping me accountable! I couldn't get away from her, LOL!! She knew what I was made of & she never stopped believing in me!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity? I absolutely LOVVVVEEEE my Shakeology! Almost instantly, I felt less hungry, I felt my energy increase to the point to the point where now I'm usually awake before my wife and kids! My favorite benefit of Shakeology was easily my curbed cravings! Shakeology not only curbed my appetite of sugar, salt, and plain processed foods, it also curbed my ALCOHOL cravings! Since the first 10 days of me drinking Shakeology, I never wanted another drink or shot! For me, who drank so excessively before to just cut it, just like that, was truly incredible!!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? The accountability groups on Facebook were excellent! Watching others, just like me, make the decision to change their lives and push themselves just like me, showed me how it was possible to keep going! I also found logging into the Supergym every day helped also, not only having the opportunity to win $500 every day, but if I logged in and DIDN'T work out, I felt awful the next day, that also helped keep me going. And who could forget the Recovery Drink & E&E Formula! Without adding those great supplements to my day, it would have been hard to push through some of the grueling workouts that I had done! Plus they taste really good, lol!
