“Anything Is Possible. You Just Have To Believe”

Meet Jimena R. She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for February 24th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have always been the type of girl who has not always been physically involved in any activity. Moving from Peru to Canada also played a role. I did not know anyone, and did not know how things worked. I was always too shy to join any teams, and could barely speak any English. I never took fitness too seriously, and did not have a proper diet either. I always felt tired, and out of breath, at such a young age. I was not conscious of what I was putting into my body, and the amount of exercise I was doing was almost nothing. I did not respect or treat my body as it deserved.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was not happy with the way I looked or felt. In the beginning of 2014, I started doing body weight exercises, which allowed me to identify all the weaknesses I had. I felt miserable knowing how bad my fitness level was. As I became more familiar with the proper nutrition, along with exercise, I started to gain more strength and confidence. What inspired me to begin my journey was change, and the thought of being able to become a better version of myself.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I achieved a good level of strength and fitness, but I still did not see it all reflected properly in my physical appearance like I wished. For months I felt trapped, and as though I could not get any new results. I needed something new to shock my body. What I did to overcome this obstacle was INSANITY and Shakeology. As soon as I tried them, I felt like things finally started to work again. I gained hope, and kept working hard. Consistency is key. It is important and crucial to never let go of your vision. My vision each day became more clear, and my incentive to work hard became stronger as I kept getting results. I couldn’t thank this program, and supplement, enough.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked every part of INSANITY just because of the fact that every part of it was challenging. Starting with the warm up, then the stretch, and then getting into the real phase of the workout seemed to shock my body a lot. Especially since each day was a different workout. This kept my body guessing, which allowed me to get real results.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am proud about the fact that I was finally able to achieve my goals. This was possible due to my perseverance, and the fact that I did not quit until I saw the results I needed to see in order to feel like I accomplished something. I would always start a workout and never stop. I followed the program as designed, and completed every part of it.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Beachbody has not only helped me with my physical appearance, but also with all other aspects of my life. I have became more social, I am happier with the way I look and feel, and I have definitely achieved mental strength throughout this process of becoming a better me. Anything is possible; you just have to believe. Believe to achieve.

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 is amazing. It tastes wonderful, and it provides me with the right nutrients to fuel my workouts, an overall boost of energy, and it helped me lose weight.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
It only helped for the better. Shakeology allowed me to feel better, and each day I felt healthier and younger.
