I love transformation stories!
Man do I! They are the best. I love that can see and hear about people finally had enough. It was done!
Vinnie sent me in his results and I was floored! He got jacked! He had plugged in with teamRIPPED and made the change. What was even better was he did it with his son Quinn! Talk about setting a great example for your kids and immediately having that example pay off. Both did an awesome job. Vinnie also told me that he has won a monthly prize with the Beachbody Challenge! Getting paid some serious cash for your hard work, who wouldn’t love that?
So pumped for you Vinnie! I know people will be able to relate to your story and I know that you will be inspiring many. Congrats! And make sure Quinn knows how proud I am of his hard work too! We can all have a new trajectory for life, if we just DECIDE, COMMIT, and SUCCEED!
Vinnie’s Story in His Own Words
I turned 50 last year which was a milestone that I wasn’t looking forward to. A few months before, I suffered a nagging back injury that gave me an excuse to be lazy. Around that time I developed ulcers and was taking medication daily to ward off the constant acid reflux. My lack of exercise combined with eating habits that were getting worse by the day often made me feel sick and tired. I looked in the mirror and saw my stomach expanding as my weight was creeping up. I knew in my mind I had to make drastic changes but just didn’t have the motivation to do what had to be done. They say it’s all downhill after 40. I think I convinced myself that the hill was WAY steeper after 50. I was definitely on my way down the hill…physically and psychologically.
One night at work, I was talking to a friend and we got on the subject of working out. The conversation turned to different workout programs and my friend mentioned that he had half-heartedly tried P90X in the past and was hoping to give it another shot. I told him that I also tried P90X many years ago and never made it through the entire program. The next morning I went home and rummaged through the bedroom closet and found the original set of P90X DVD’s. That morning, I decided enough was enough. It was time. I sent my 16 yr old son, Quinn, a text while he was at school and told him that I was going to do P90X and challenged him to step away from the video games and do it with me. I promised him that we would get in the best shape of our lives. He loves his video games so I had to sweeten the pot a little…but he agreed. Knowing I desperately needed to get into shape motivated me. But the idea of doing it with my son next to me every step of the way sealed the deal for me. No quitting.In one round of P90X, I lost 21 pounds, several inches off my waist, I’m physically stronger, more flexible and have more energy than I’ve had in years. The eating plan taught me the importance of eating clean for overall health. Since changing my eating habits, I am off medication and don’t suffer from the gastrointestinal issues I had dealt with for years. I feel great about the results I achieved in only 90 days but more than anything I’m proud of my son Quinn for sticking with the program and getting great results himself. He was the main reason I was able to complete the program. He was a great inspiration and I’m glad that his hard work paid off. I couldn’t have asked for a better workout partner.
