“25 Minutes a Day Is So Manageable”

“25 Minutes a Day Is So Manageable”

Meet Kristen G.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for September 9th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a 35 year-old paramedic whose uniform became a sausage casing. I had completely stopped all form of exercise after my second miscarriage in Feb of 2013. I began this depression spiral. It affected my mental state, my relationship, and of course my physical well being. In October, I knew something had to change.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was sick of feeling gross, and felt uncomfortable in my own skin.

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 was getting off the couch and getting anything done. It’s so easy to become lazy. After the first few weeks, I began to notice a significant change in my body. So did my husband. I thought that if the change was that good in 3 weeks, imagine what could happen in 10 weeks. From there I just kept going. Well, I was so happy, actually ecstatic, about the changes in my body. Now my confidence has increased, and I can actually say it has taken me out of my depression.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The fact that even on my busiest of days I could still get a work in. 25 minutes a day is so manageable.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
At my highest weight I was up to 180 pounds. I’ve lost 41 pounds and tons of inches. I’ve gained my confidence back, and I’m starting to see abs. That’s a definite added bonus.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I feel more confident in myself, and my relationship is back on track because I am not angry and depressed anymore. I know that has a lot to do with me just “pushing play.” THANK YOU, Focus T25 and Shaun T.
