Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I began using Beachbody programs three months after having my second child. I was so out of shape that I became winded carrying my children up the stairs. I was only 25 and heartbroken that I had lost control of my health. I didn’t think I had the time or the ability to do these programs, and just felt in over my head. I never thought I would have a body I was proud of again.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My Coach, Jennifer Cangelosi, kept telling me I could do it! She was right!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I didn’t think I would be able to do these programs, because I was in pain. I had hurt my foot during my pregnancy, and simply walking hurt. I didn’t think there was any way I could actually add working out for 30 minutes a day!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I absolutely love PiYo. It makes me feel sexy again. I never ever thought I would be able to even complete the easier workouts, and now I can do all of them!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My whole body is smaller and tighter, yet much stronger! I can do everything more easily because of the strength I’ve gained! I no longer get out of breath dashing up the stairs or carrying my children during long walks on the beach — against the wind!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel good about myself again! I’ve also decided to make this a lifestyle! Daily exercise is now the norm! And it’s changed my whole family! My four-year-old begs to do the workouts with me all day, so we do them together! My husband has also lost a good bit of weight! We all talk about how delicious healthy food is!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I actually was the Coach who led the Challenge Group! The ladies I did it with were wonderful! Even though I was supposed to be their Coach, they really encouraged me! I loved the daily support and encouragement. I think the Challenge Group really enhances the value of the program! Everyone in the group decided to take a week off and do it together again!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
The Challenge Group answers tons of my questions, provides me with healthy recipes, encourages me to keep at it, and helps me with tips to fit workouts into my busy schedule.
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 is delicious! It really helped with my all-day sugar cravings! Also, it helped me get breakfast in! I have more energy all around! And my skin has gotten noticeably clearer and brighter!
