What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
I looked in the mirror one day and thought, this isn’t me. This isn’t who I am or who I want to be. Happiness is a choice. Health is a choice. I was so so tired of thinking about the beach and wishing, with everything I had, that I could look like those other girls. The skinny ones. The fit ones. I wanted their bodies so bad, and I knew I could if I just put my mind to it. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m happier than ever that I took the steps toward being there.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?*
I did Les Mills Combat. I had never taken a kickboxing class or tried martial arts before. Turns out, this is something I love. I was able to do the program from the beginning with the modifications, and felt myself improve every single week. By the end of the program, I was wearing weighted gloves, punching harder than ever, and kicking higher than ever. My body completely transformed.

Every week on “Staturday” I stepped on the scale and weighed in with my coach and fellow challenge members. They saw such large number drops. For the most part, I remained really consistent in my weight hovering right around 140-143 the entire 60 days. But the way my body changed was incredible – it was what kept me motivated.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?*
I feel a lot more energetic. I feel like there’s no excuse not to workout. I used to think “oh I have to work; I can’t go to the gym today”. I came up with every excuse in the book. Now, I wake up on “rest days” I feel like a piece of me is missing. I’ve come to realize, through Beachbody, that this is a lifestyle change. It’s a mentality. It’s a habit forming. It’s beautiful to go from wanting to do nothing, to wanting to do it all, and believing that you really can!
