Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My self esteem was at an all time low. I moved from Indiana to North Carolina a little over a year ago with my fiancé. I had a very physical job before I moved, so I truly was in the best shape of my life. Upon moving, I gained 30lbs by having a desk job, which was very stressful and literally no movement for 10 hours a day. I kept up my workouts by going to the gym, participating in kickboxing classes, a little weight liftingWeight training for women. Read more ... », and running outdoors. I just didn’t realize how badly my eating habits were until I joined BeachbodyBeachbody Black Friday Huge Holiday Savings. Read more ... ». No matter what I did I kept gaining weight and was at the heaviest I’d ever been. My clothes didn’t fit, I was embarrased to even think about wearing shorts and was dreading summer. I would cry almost every day wondering what I’ve been doing wrong and how I can get back on track.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The simplicity of the workouts and the meal plans
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
I lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks. I hadn’t been able to lose even 1 lb in the last year so I am thrilled. I am proud of myself for setting a goal and sticking with it. I didn’t cheat on the diets and if anything I ate even less than I was allowed. It was a test of my resolve and I passed with flying colors!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I look at myself differently. Even though I still have 15 lbs to lose, I know it’s possible and I have the proper tools to get me to that goal and beyond. Just living a healthier lifestyle is the best reward. My friends and co-workers notice my progress and change in demeanor. My fiancé is the biggest supporter in my life. He always loves me unconditionally, but several times a day he compliments me and makes sure to reinforce how proud he is of me for doing this for myself. He’s the best and now I can look forward to truly setting a wedding date because I will be able to fit into the dress of my dreams!

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She always provided positive feedback, support and encouragement. She’s just a beautiful person inside and out! She started teaching INSANITY locally and even if I was the only person that showed up, she taught the class like she was in front of a city of people. Her positive spirit is inspiring and I wanted to support her as much as she has supported me.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?

Meet David W.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for July 12th!


Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started INSANITY: The Asylum, I was starting to get toned and build muscles. I now have bigger muscles, more definition to my entire body, I feel great about myself, and now hardly wear a shirt. I am still a work in progress, and have a long way to go to get to my ideal body, but I am closer now than I was 30 days ago. Thanks to The Asylum, Shaun TFocus T25: Exercise Review The Workout For Those With No Time To Work Out. Read more ... », and the cast of the program I was able to push myself to the limit and I am feeling great.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My Journey was inspired by a Team Beachbody infomercial that made me realize I needed to do something about my health. I ordered my first program but had to delay due to a shoulder injury that required surgery. After 5 weeks of healing I started my first program; Focus T253 Reasons Why You Should Workout at Home.

I have continued on with Team Beachbody programs with Insanity, P90X3Tony Horton 10-Minute Jump Rope Workout. Read more ... », and now have finished INSANITY: The Asylum Vol 1.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge before starting INSANITY was my strength. I couldn’t even do one chin up and push ups were not where I wanted them. I have overcome that challenge can now do 60+ push ups and 10 chin ups without assistance. It is such an accomplishment for me because I spent 26 years in the Army and was never able to do more than 60 push ups; now I can.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The achievements that I am most proud of are that I am stronger, and still working on getting stronger.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am more confident now and love my body. I am not afraid to show it off and not wear a shirt. I have people all the time telling me that I look great and to keep up what I am doing. It is nice to get compliments on how you look. That didn’t happen in the past, but it does now.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
I continue to receive Shakeology on a monthly basis through the home direct program and drink it every morning, after my workout, for breakfast. I no longer have to take Zantac to keep my stomach from hurting and my cholesterol has also became completely normal since using Shakeology. I also use E & E before every workout which helps me with the energy and endurance I need to push through my workouts. I am now drinking P90XTony Horton 10-Minute Jump Rope Workout.

Meet Lauren N.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for July 13th!


Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was one of the most insecure people. Always buying clothes way to big. My friends even called some shirts “Lauren shirts”. I was always upset and shopping was one of the most dreadful things. I never felt comfortable in my body and it showed. I used belts to try and hide my stomach, ultimately making it worse, and my diet would always start “tomorrow”.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One of my friends began on her journey a couple of months prior. She sent me her before and after picture and it stuck in my head that I can do this. Two weeks after I set a date and began with INSANITY.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Everything! I loved the max interval and the constant schedule, which told you what to do daily. It gave me the structure and discipline I needed to stay committed to the program. It truly pushed me to the max where I was dripping sweat and feeling my muscles hurt. I love that feeling the next day.

What’s better than that your loved ones being proud?

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed because I can now dress the way I want. I can stand up tall and be proud of who I am. I’m not afraid to pose for a picture because I look fatHow to get rid of back fat.

I constantly look at my before and after pictures because I really can’t believe I did it. I am still working out daily and making it a part of my life is a life changing experience too. A couple of months ago I would have never ever dreamed of waking up at 5 am just to do a workout. Now I don’t feel right if I don’t. Exercising is in my schedule and I still will continue to do the Beachbody workouts daily.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology got me started every morning. I never used to eat breakfast, but Shakeology made it so easy for me. I have actually convinced at least 5 others to order their own. It really helped on days that I was just feeling so lethargic. The acti vitamins were a good start to the beginning of my weight loss. I also used the Results & Recovery drink for a little. It was such a pick me up after these intense workouts.
