Beachbody Results: This Dad Lost 30 Pounds!

Thomas Bouchereau lost 30 lbs. with 21 Day Fix, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Shakeology, and the Beachbody Performance supplements. Here’s the story that he shared with the Beachbody Challenge contest.

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt tired all the time. I have a three-year-old at home and didn’t have much energy to get up and play. I found myself to be lazy. I didn’t like the way I looked in my clothes anymore.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My wife and I found out that we are having another baby! I knew that if I didn’t do something now, I wouldn’t have the energy to take care of a newborn. I became determined to hit my goals and be healthy and ready for my new child to come.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest problem I had was finding the time in the day to go to the gym to work out. By using the Beachbody program, my son would play while I was able to work out at home. He even tried to copy some of the moves I was doing, which made it a lot of fun for the both of us.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The 21 Day Fix made the diet part really simple with the portioning cups. I liked that I could modify all of the moves if I needed to make it easier for me to make it through the whole workout each day. The 22 Minute Hard Corps program had me sweating every time I did a workout. I liked the split between cardio and strength the most!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost over 30 pounds pounds in just five months. I couldn’t believe it. My stomach flattening out is my favorite achievement. I now have a six-pack and my arms have good definition as well!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I now have more energy to play with my son. My clothes fit much better, without having a stomach pushing through the shirt. I’m most proud of the fact that I have a new habit of working out daily, and that I have a better understanding of my diet.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The group kept me motivated by seeing others doing their workouts and drinking their shakes daily!

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey? 
She would always check in on me and see how I was doing. She encouraged me to hit my goals!

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?
I liked how drinking Shakeology daily helped me regulate my digestive system. I could definitely tell the difference after drinking it for about three days.2

Tell us about your experience with Beachbody On Demand. If applicable, how has it helped you achieve your goals?
I love the simplicity of getting my workouts done. No matter where I am, I can use my phone and get a great program in for the day.
