Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Through years of physical neglect, I reached 247 lbs. I felt horrible about myself. My body ached. I started experiencing health problems as a result of my weight and lack of exercise.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I went to a doctor for the first time in 10 years after obtaining insurance, and had a bunch of tests completed to determine what the problem was. In short, the doctor told me: “You’re fat and you need to lose weight and exercise. If you will do that, your pain will go away. You need to strengthen the muscles in your back to hold the discs in your spine in place. They’re slipping out because the muscles surrounding them are weak.” This was the turning point for me. I asked if a program such as INSANITY was okay for me to do, and he agreed that it would be good for me.*

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Before beginning the program, I was faced with constant pain in my back that prevented me from many of the things I was used to doing. Once I started the program and started to regain strength and endurance, the pain went away within about a week. Though you always experience some muscle soreness from working out, that was nothing like the debilitating pain I was experiencing beforehand. I couldn’t even tie my shoes without straining and getting red in the face, and now I don’t think twice about it. If it wasn’t for INSANITY, I wouldn’t be in the best shape of my life and now pain-free.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked how INSANITY got me results fast. I’m not one to screw around when I want results, and this was it.


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I was extremely overweight. I was proud to go from 247 lbs. down to 216 lbs. when I started the INSANITY nutrition plan a few weeks before starting the workout, and then down to 198 lbs. with the workout program. I wanted to drop as much weight as I could before starting. I felt like this was a great way to go for me since I hadn’t exercised in about 20 years.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since completing the program, I have experienced more energy and confidence in my day-to-day life. I don’t experience the pain I used to feel from being overweight. I have had to go out and buy new clothes, and that in itself is a great feeling. Since completing INSANITY, I have also completed a round of INSANITY MAX:30 and dropped even more weight. I started MAX:30 at 199 lbs. and ended that program at 184 lbs. Now I want to exercise as it has simply become part of my life. I’m looking to drop another 25 lbs. and get toned and ripped.

How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, ordigestion/regularity?
I had great results with Energy & Endurance, which kept me going through some intense workouts. The Results and Recovery greatly reduced my muscle soreness and recovery time. The small amounts of creatine helped me build muscle quickly without bulking up. The P90X Protein Bars have been a big help with snack time or replacing a meal on-the-go. I believe this three-product combo has been a big part of my great results!

How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
The products helped with muscle soreness, and helped allow my body to heal after years of physical neglect.

Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
I have noticed that I experience greater results when I use the products versus when I don’t use anything or use other products.
