Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I started the program my senior year of high school. I had just finished all my sports, so I had nothing going on once school ended. I found myself just sitting around being very unproductive. I was eating more and exercising less. I started to feel worse and worse about the way I looked. My energy level was very low, and I knew something had to change.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I heard stories of people gaining a lot of weight their freshman year of college, and I didn’t want to have a bad start going into that. I wanted a body that I could show off. I also wanted to get my brother to lose some weight. I figured the best way to do this was to have him complete the program with me.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced prior to starting the program was staying motivated. I simply could not find the energy I once had to get things done. P90X3 gave me a challenge every day. This helped me make sure I did at least one productive thing throughout the day. As the days progressed through P90X3, I found myself having more energy and more motivation.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really enjoyed the length of P90X3. I had bought P90X in the past but could not complete it, because I did not have the time. For me, 30 minutes a day was perfect.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
After my 90 days were up, I saw fantastic results. I managed to lose 20 lbs.! I didn’t gain a ton of muscle, which was what I expected, but I managed to slim down my body and get the look I desired. I am also proud of my new diet. Since I started P90X3, I’ve been eating healthier than ever before. Even though my 90 days are up, I’m still eating healthier because I’m so used to it.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
P90X3 has made my life more fun! I love going to the beach now and showing off my body whenever I get the chance. I never have to worry about taking off my shirt. In fact, I’m more tan now because my shirt is always off.
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 gave me the daily nutrition I needed every day all in one glass. It tastes fantastic, which is an added bonus. The shake helped me slim down, and provided me with a better night’s sleep. I also had more energy and just a better overall mood. I plan on buying more Shakeology even though I already completed P90X3.
