Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a father of two, and I work about 50 hours a week at the hospital as an RN. I no longer had the time to get to the gym, and slowly I got very out of shape. 222 lbs. was the most I have ever weighed in my life, and my body could tell. I felt tired all the time, and my work weeks began to become unbearable to finish. My back and legs were killing me by that last day. I felt like I did not have the energy to play with my kids when I got home. On my days off I had no motivation to do anything at all. I felt old at 33.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I saw some transformation stories from people who had done p90x3, and I thought anyone can do 30 minutes a day. Also, a Beachbody Coach, told me more about the programs and Shakeology. Her transformation was amazing with P90, and I wanted the same thing for myself. She got me set up as a Coach, and I was on my way.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge was getting a workout in six days a week, but Beachbody’s support and a good challenge group helped me get through each day. Beachbody helped me stay focused on my goal.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked how much strength I was gaining in a short period of time. I have always liked super sets in the gym, but P90X3 took it to the next level. It felt great. I never thought I could get this strong with 30 minute workouts.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I dropped 24 lbs, and got to 9% body fat. My blood pressure was high before, and now it is normal. Overall, I feel amazing. I am most proud of my abs and my back.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have the energy I was lacking to get through each week. I feel like a completely different man. I have confidence in myself again.
