Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started 21 Day Fix with my wife, I was a college student who was not into working out and focused on beer and pizza with my roommates. I got married, and together my wife and I had a baby. I will never forget going to the doctor and seeing the scale say “251.” I knew that I had to lose some weight as I was considered “obese,” and working in the medical field, I understand comorbidities that are associated with obesity. After our daughter was born, my wife got connected with a friend who started 21 Day Fix. Together we started Shakeology and eating correct portion sizes. I began working out in addition to eating healthy and began seeing results.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Being a father to my daughter was an inspiration for me to change my ways. My wife and I wanted my daughter to grow up with healthy parents who set a good example.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Before the challenge I realized how out of shape I was and how large my portion sizes were. Using 21 Day Fix with my wife has helped me focus on what nutrients my body needs, in addition to a workout that can be 30 minutes and effective.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The portion sizes and the booklet from 21 Day Fix were most helpful in learning about nutrition and what my body actually needs to stay energized throughout the day.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My greatest accomplishment is losing weight, gaining confidence in my appearance, and becoming consistent with a healthy lifestyle. I now am doing other workout programs with my wife, including Hammer and Chisel and 22 Minute Hard Corps.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy and confidence in myself, along with more knowledge on living a healthy lifestyle.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Group helped keep me informed and motivated each week. I was kept accountable by not only my Coach but also my fellow challengers. It was nice to keep in contact via social media and also via text to see where everyone was each week.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach happens to be my wife so the support was there in full. I think it was an advantage during the process to have my wife coach me throughout my weight-loss journey.
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?
Shakeology has helped me not eat my normal high-fat lunches I was eating at the hospital where I work. It not only saved me calories, it filled me up and kept me energized until dinner time.2 It has been the best investment I have ever made.
