Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?*
Growing up i was very active. I played sports and did anything that had to do with being outside. When i started my high school career i stopped playing everything but football. I started gaining weight from not being as active and having horrible eating habits. long story short i decided not to go to college and play football. i started working for my fathers construction company when i was 18. I developed very bad eating habits. Fast food, pizza and sweets. I never ate veggies, i couldn’t pass up a fast food place without wanting to something to eat. I was in denial about my weight i never thought i was fat. I didn’t consider myself to have a problem. The simplest things like walking and tying my shoes became difficult. I would get out of breathe my heart would race. i grew to hate what i was seeing in the mirror. i lacked energy and the will power to change. I had Lab work done my cholesterol was so high it couldn’t be read. my triglycerides were 1110.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
My lab work was a huge wake up call. At the time i was 27 years old. I didn’t want to be on medication my entire life. I seen the infomercial for BodyBeast and knew that was the program for me. It was something i grew up doing and i love to push myself. After trying and failing several times i gave up. When i found my coach Shawn that is when it all changed. I finally had someone that came from a similar situation. I joined a challenge group Shawn had created that helped keep me on track. Once i decided to make the commitment nothing was going to stop me. i got to know the people in the group and what i was doing was inspiring other people. When i got my first message that told me i was inspiring it opened my eyes. I didn’t want to let these people down. My wife is now training with BodyBeast.. My son is now 11 months old and watches me workout. I never want him to know fat daddy. Just fit daddy. I want to help people change.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*
My greatest challenge was mental. Getting my mind right and getting focused on what i needed to do was tough. Changing old habits was tough. I really feel that BodyBeast was made just for me. With the help , support of my coach and group. I was able to make the change. I no longer have a mental battle with myself when i pass a fast food place. I now drink Shakeology daily. I feel better now than i did 10 years ago. Becoming a team beachbody coach has really kept me on track. You really have to be a Product of the product and practice what you preach. With committing to your nutrition and training results become addicting. i see new changes each week, that also keeps me on track even when the Scale doesn’t show it. I also purchased Hard Corps 22. and i absolutely love the program. i now talk to people daily about beachbody and i am very excited to grow this business. i look forward to meeting the people that have influenced me and created these great products. Thank you BeachBody.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Body Beast is a program that i fell in love with. You don’t have to have a lot of equipment. You don’t have to have a huge space to workout and it is Low impact. i had to have back surgery may of 2015. I wasn’t sure if i would be able to lift again or do any workouts that involved high impact training. I was able to start my training with Body Beast this January and never had any issues with my back . I started weight training when i was in the 8th grade so this program was made for me. I love weight training and having Sagi as the trainer is awesome.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
I was at 333 lbs when i started my journey i am now 269.4 lbs. i have lost 17 % bf. my cholesterol and triglycerides are now down and i have an appointment the end April to see if i can get off of my Medication. i am very excited about all of the accomplishments i have made so far. I am continuing my journey with Body Beast and Hard Corps 22. I look forward to what the future holds.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?*
My life has Changed in so many ways. I use to come home after work so tired i would take a nap. I was sluggish and not very motivated. Now i get up in the morning happy and full of energy. I come home workout without fail now. People notice the hard work i have put in and that is very rewarding. I get to share how beachbody , Body Beast , Shakeology and my coach have changed my life. I am more active now than i think i have been in my 20s. Becoming a coach has changed my life as well because now i not only have to hold myself accountable but also help coach my clients. i love the opportunity this has given to me.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Being in a Challenge Group helped keep me motivated. The friends i have made and people i got to share my experience with has just been amazing. Being in the challenge group kept me accountable. because not only did i not want to let myself down but i didn’t want to let these great people down. My coach was and is amazing. He never gave up on me even when i felt i was a lost cause.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Shawn and I would message back and forth through Facebook . He was never to busy to answer my questions and make me feel like he really cared about me. He is one of the biggest reasons i am where i am and i don’t think i would have been able to accomplish my goals so far without his guidance and support.
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 was a game changer for me and still is. i drink shakeology every morning for breakfast. It helped fuel my body to get my days started on the right foot. The greatest benefit would have to be starting out my day with a healthy , great tasting shake. i have lowered my cholesterol and triglycerides. I believe that Shakeology played a huge factor in all of this. i now experience a fuller, deeper sleep than i ever have before. i have energy like i did when i was in high school. Overall i am a healthier happier person because of these great products.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
To be blunt i was walking the path to an early death because of my nutrition and health. i will be able to get off of my cholesterol medication and do things i never thought i could do. i will continue to use shakeology daily and complete at least 3 more rounds of body beast this year. i love my new life and i have beachbody to thank for it.
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc…)
Yes. As i have stated in the other questions i couldn’t be happier with the effect the supplements and programs have given me. My bp , cholesterol and triglycerides have all dropped and i will be able to get off medication the end of April. shakeology , body beast , hard corps 22 has changed my life.
