Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was a former college basketball player who got a desk job and gained a lot of weight quickly. Gaining all that weight really messed up my confidence. I felt terrible. It was the worst place that I have ever been in my life. I did not like my body at all.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I got a desk job and started to put on a lot of weight. I knew something had to change, so I decided to give P90X3 a try.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Biggest challenge was lethargy and lack of motivation. X3 helped me become disciplined and motivated.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really liked that it was only 30 minutes a day, and the workouts scale well with increase in ability. The 30-minute format allowed me to workout on my lunch break which was huge because often I would be too busy before and after work. The program really grew with me. It’s still hard and challenging even with all the progress I have made.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost weight and built muscle by following the classic schedule, and I had amazing results! I lost nearly 40 lbs and 15% body fat. I gained a tremendous amount of strength, and I saw the most results in my core. I have never been more fit in my entire life. I am proud of all of those things. My friends and family comment on my weight loss almost daily; they’re shocked! I am now in the best shape of my life, and stronger and leaner than I was even as a college basketball player. I couldn’t be happier. I celebrated my results with ONE cheat meal at a place called Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My confidence is sky high. My over-all health is much better. I have experienced an attitude shift from “I’m not sure if I can” to “I can do it!”
How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, or digestion/regularity?
Shakeology and the post workout formula played integral roles in helping me eat better and recover quicker.
