Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * At 52, I've spent most of my life in exercise. The son of a Marine Pilot, who became a Marine pilot...discipline. Fitness was required throughout my Marine Corps career as a Harrier Pilot. I even did the Ironman Triathlon in Kona when I was 37. BUT, I have never been more fit that I am now after P90X2. At 210 pounds, I thought I was fit. I look at my before pictures, I must have been crazy. The Beachbody Program has created a product that anyone can do and achieve the outcome they seek.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * I remember during a layover at PHX in 2004 watching a guy doing some crazy program. Hmmm, I thought, That's different. A few years later I began seeing what it was he was doing on the Beachbody commercial. Still a bit skeptical, another year went by then I decided to give it a shot. My family was in a small village in Cotignac, Provence, France. We pulled out the DVD's and did legs and back there in that little farmhouse. The next day we could barely walk from soreness. That was the day it all began in March 2009. P90X & X2 since.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * Trying to get it all done at once. Trying to achieve those results fast. Not willing nor understanding the path and the person you become from walking this journey is almost better than the goal we achieve. When I coach now, it's about modification, giving yourself a measure of grace. It will come and enjoy, even welcome this journey.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * P90X: the variety, the difficulty, and of course the results.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * Overall increased fitness, weight loss (25 pounds) and 8% body fat.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * I continue to do P90X2 and working on Beast. More importantly, it's not about me anymore. I've been gifted with this opportunity and am obliged to share this with others out of my hearts desire. If I can change the path of one persons life through the introduction of Beachbody, then I'm happy.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? Denis is a wonderful mentor. I've learned that there's no need to "reinvent" the wheel and with the knowledge Denis has, I look forward to our outreach.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Always there to answer my questions, to encourage me, to make me be better.
