Jefferson’s Life, Before

“It was January 2015. I weighed 350 pounds. My health was at an all-time low. I had to change or die.

I really had no other option but to survive and get serious about lifestyle change. I have people who depend on me, and I had to make a drastic change and that’s when I decided to take or start this journey.”

Jefferson’s Transformation

“I had no idea just how big nutrition was in the big picture of things.  I had no idea what portions were, let alone what healthy food was. I had never done workouts before.

The portion-control containers were huge for me — I saw just how out of whack my portions were.

I started with CIZE and then did 22 Minute Hard Corps, Core De Force, PiYo, Insanity Max:30, Clean Week, Shift Shop, and 80 Day Obsession.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be CIZE.

CIZE is a dance workout that didn’t feel like a workout, and the different movements really helped increase my range of motion.

“I am 42 and I am in the best shape of my life. Every day, I get better and better. Beachbody has helped me get my life back.

Words can’t explain how grateful I am! When you work out and do your best, the results will come.”
