In August of 2005, I reached 205 lbs. Today, I tip the scale at 170 lbs and 8% bodyfat! In 2005, people told me I didn’t have the “genetics” for six pack abs. Today, I’m 37 years old, have six pack abs, and in the absolute best shape of my life. I’m addicted to Beachbody. I need Beachbody like I need food and water. People around me think I’m obsessed with my fitness and nutrition. I say, if you have to be obsessed with something, be obsessed with your health! I enjoy being fit because it’s something we can control. There are so many things I cannot control, WHY NOT be able to control one aspect of my life.
Let me tell you about the start of my Beachbody “obsession”. In August 2005, I was sitting in a motel room, flipping the channels on the television. (Very familiar for a lot of us). I came across the Power 90 infomercial. Let me recap that infomercial. Power 90 was a 90 day program. The program included a custom meal plan, a fitness guide, and a exercise routine. Most importantly, it had a Money Back Guarantee. As I watched the infomercial, and saw people just like me, getting in GREAT shape, I thought, I can do this too! But I was skeptical, I tried other infomercial products. None of them brought the results promised. But the money back guarantee gave me the final push. I told myself that I would give it 100% for 90 days. And if the program wasn’t working, I would return it. While I waited for Power 90 to arrive, I started my diet by logging into Beachbody, and getting the meal plan. By the time my package arrived, I already lost 10 lbs just doing the diet. So by now, I am SOLD on the potential results. When the package arrived, I started the very next day. After 90 days, I lost a total of 30 lbs! Before the 90 days was even over, I was on the phone ordering P90X. I have now finished 9 rounds of P90X. I feel like a success story for Beachbody! Actually I feel like a two time success story. The first success story was losing 35 lbs. The second success story was keeping that same 35 lbs off for over 4 years! How many times have we seen people drop large amounts of weight, just to gain it all back! They either get burned out, are working on a diet that you cannot maintain (fad diets), or simply lose their motivation.
With Beachbody, when I start to burn out, I change my workouts; throw in a ChaLEAN Extreme, Insanity, One on One, it’s crazy how many great workouts you can find at Beachbody. I maintain my P90X program, but switch up my
cardio. With Beachbody, there are no fad diets; you learn the basics of just eating healthy. This is where other programs fail. The old saying “Abs are made in the kitchen”, well, Beachbody helps you get your diet right. You get
recipes, nutritional guides, and an education on eating healthy. How about losing motivation? We all have been there. Just login to the forums, make friends, use WOWY, one post about losing motivation, and you get people everywhere to boost your morale!
I won’t sit back and say it’s been easy, it takes hard work and dedication. But as Tony Horton says, “Get your mind right”. I’m convinced, and proof, that following Beachbody can get you the results you want. If you will provide time and dedication, anything is possible. If you have the desire, you can change your life too!
So what’s my success story? My daughter. When she was born my life was changed forever. I saw this baby girl, and instantly fell head over heels in love. And I knew that I wanted to be a part of her life for as long as possible. I can’t control my future, and what that holds for me, but I can control my health and fitness. If eating right and exercise extends my time with her, then its time well spent! My daughter got me up off the couch. And now as my family grows, my son and daughter and wife keep me going! My family gives me the motivation, and Beachbody gives me the tools. Go Beachbody!
