Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?Before I started I was a sedentary, insecure shell of who I am now. I got married at 21, got pregnant immediately and due to medication, was unable to lose the weight that I’d gained. I suffered from depression and anxiety. I HATED going in to my closet and would just cry after trying on outfit after outfit. WIth a very strict diet I lost a little weight right before I got pregnant with my 2nd daughter, but had a very inactive,junk-food filled pregnancy. After the birth of her, I was a 170lb, 24 yr old. I didn’t want to go out to social functions because no matter what the weather, I was going to have to figure out what body slimmer, or girdle, or sweater I was going to to wear to make my body look “OK”. I got to the point where I thought I was too worthless to exercise. I was so ashamed of myself. I wanted to go out, and be active, and live life like a young woman in her 20’s with two beautiful daughters and an amazing husband should, but was too disgusted to even try.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?What inspired me to begin was a picture taken of me at a family dinner. I didn’t even recognize myself. That was not me. I am fun. I am not tired. I am excited about life, and active. That was NOT who I saw in the picture. My mom saw how upset I was and said, “you have to try this workout. It’s called TurboJam.” She turned on the dvd and I watched this tiny energetic blonde woman, dancing and kickboxing along side other beautiful bodied, energetic women. “Those are all models that signed up for some casting call and got in the dvd.” I said. Then I watched more and the energy was pulling me in. I listened to the testimonials of the REAL WOMEN doing TJ and realized, “they are NOT models. They are MOMS, they are people that are working their butts off to be like they are!” I took the dvd home and worked out to it that night, 4/12/2008. As I punched and kicked and pumped away with a smile on my face, my husband looked at me and said, “this is the thing that’s going to change your life”
Why did you choose the particular program?I chose TurboJam, because of the amazing energy of Chalene Johnson. She is an incredible motivator and so fun to work out with! The women in the dvd’s are REAL. They have weight struggles, they have kids, and they have amazing bodies and outlooks on life. I had NEVER stuck with a workout program or been excited to do a workout day after day. But, TJ changed my life. It changed my attitude. It’s such a fun, dancey, party workout that I couldn’t help but love it and I sweat like I’d never sweat before! TJ also had so many different workouts to choose from. I started out doing just the 20 minute and AbJam for the first month and still lost 10-15 lbs. Then I revved it up with CP3 and the Live workouts and shed even more weight. It is such an amazing program with tons of variety. Over the years, while maintaining my weight I have had great success with Chalean Extreme and am currently killing it with TurboFIre! Talk about sweating! These programs are amazing and I can’t get enough!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?The results! TurboJam and the other Chalene Johnson programs WORK. I lost 40 lbs doing TurboJam and eating a healthy diet. I’ve kept the weight off for 4 years through TJ, TurboFire and Chalean Extreme. That is stunning to me! I couldn’t have done it without such an amazing program and fantastic motivator. I felt like I was IN the class with those people. I felt like I knew them, and it made me want to class. It made me push harder than I ever thought I could. It made me sweat and burn and dig deep and that’s what gets results! I am a different person than I was 4 years ago because of these awesome programs.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge?The greatest challenges I’ve faced all have to do with motherhood. I got pregnant with my 3rd daughter just 5 months after reaching my goal. With my other pregnancies I ate terribly and was completely inactive. Not this time! My third pregnancy was amazing. With my dr’s consent I continued TurboJam and stayed active thanks to the confidence and energy I had gained from the months of training I had just completed. I gained a healthy ammount of weight and was able to burn it off after I gave birth to my daughter. I lost the weight doing TurbJam and TurboFire and have kept it off. Any time you have a family you have to prioritize your fitness. If you don’t MAKE time for it, you will never FIND time for it. I work out every night after my kids go to bed. It’s my time for ME. I am better wife and mother because of it. I constantly set new goals and fire through them, but maintaing and staying in shape once I reached my goal weight was a challenge that I’m SO proud to have conquered.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of?OH my! My results were fantastic. I went from 168lbs to 127 from April 2008-Sept2008 and have maintained since then. The weight loss was a miracle for me. I had begun to think I was going to be out of shape and unhealthy for the rest of my life. I dropped my dress size from 14-4! It still shocks me and I still have a hard time buying small shirts even after all of this time. I have toned arms and legs and my stomach is better than I could have hoped! Probably my favorite result though, is my change in attitude and who I am. I LOVE FITNESS NOW. I’m not scared of it. I tell others about the Beachbody programs and have inspired MANY of my friends and family to get in shape and try Beachbody workouts. I recently became a Beachbody coach and am so excited to officially get my friends involved in Beachbody! That’s something I never would have done before. I’m so much more outgoing that I was before. I am no longer intimidated by in shape people. I am one of them. It feels amazing!

I love to see success stories like these because people don’t think it is possible to reach goals when you use a “low impact” or shorter workout, or weights “bulk you up.” Stephanie Shows you that you can drop weight and tone with any program as long as you stay consistent!

 

“Back fat. Flabby arms. Cellulite on my legs. I hated my appearance and was far from where I wanted to be. To make matters worse, I was taking steroids for an autoimmune disease and had no energy at all. Then, one day, I saw a picture of how in-shape I was in high school. That’s when I knew something had to change.

I contacted a friend who was a Beachbody Coach. Since I’m all about the quick fix, I chose the six-week program, Slim in 6®. I lost 17 pounds! I also loved working out to the motivational music of LES MILLS PUMP. Another HUGE part of my success is Shakeology®. It gives me more energy and I will never stop using it.

Now I’m so much happier with my body. I’ve lost weight, gained muscle, and am finally able to wear a bikini again. Best of all, I’ve changed my way of thinking. Working out is now part of my day—not a chore!”

“Going through the motions. That’s how I would describe my life. I wasn’t happy with the way I looked and how my clothes fit. I only wished I had the motivation to do something about it. I wanted to be happy and healthy for my family, but I needed to find a structured program to reach my fitness goals.

One night while I was pedaling away on the elliptical machine, the TurboFire® infomercial came on television. Right off the bat I was intrigued. Dance-like moves. Upbeat music. The energy pouring out of the screen was incredible. Soon, I was doing the workouts every day, and actually missing it if I skipped even one day!

Now I’m in the best shape of my life and never looking back. I’ve lost 15 pounds and 10 inches over my entire body. When I started this program I was a size 8/10 and am now a size 4/6! I actually have abs now, and sculpted arms, too. But the best gift TurboFire has given me is confidence. I’ve achieved more this year than I have in my whole life. TurboFire not only transformed me physically, but mentally I am 110% stronger.”

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?From as far back as I can remember, I have been obese. I always saw it as something that just was part of me, but I always hated it. I was lazy – I didn’t really know how or want to put forth any effort to change that. As a kid, my mother would find wrappers from whole packages of lunchmeat or hot dogs under my bed that I had hidden after late night eating. In my early 20’s, my schedule as a Restaurant Manager never allowed me to eat during the day, so when I came home at night I would combine all three meals in to one. If I couldn’t sleep or was bored late at night, I would eat. I always hated myself for my weight, but found myself compensating by always being the first to make a joke about my weight in fear that someone else might. I became comfortable always being the “fat guy” in the family… or anywhere for that matter.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?The first realization that I needed to do something was when I was put on blood pressure medicine at age 25. The doctor also told me that I needed to lose 30lbs in 30 days. I thought that was impossible to do. And after the 30 days, I had not lost anything. I was wearing 56” pants, 5X shirts & had to go to the scrap yard to weigh myself b/c I was over 400lbs. I couldn’t even reach to clip my own toe nails – my wife had to do that for me. I also didn’t think that my wife & I would be able to have kids b/c of my size. My coach is also my insurance agent so when I’d come by his office, he’d encourage me to make a change. He’d been doing Beachbody programs for 3 years. We became friends and he took me to Columbus, OH to a Beachbody meeting & I met Tommy Mygrant and Craig Holiday. They both encouraged me that I could do this and get the results I wanted. I had never really had that support before. I was excited to see if I could do this!
Why did you choose the particular program?I started with Power90 because by now, I had heard & met so many success stories. I remember that first day sitting on my couch looking at the disc, thinking, “I am going to do this today”. So I did and BARELY made it through. But I felt accomplished and called Jeff who said, “Great! Now continue to do it every day for the next thirty days.” So after 30 days I’d lost 45lbs. By the end of 90 days I’d lost over 70lbs. I gradually progressed to P90X which was a whole other world. While I couldn’t do everything or finish the workouts & HAD to modify alot, I thrived on the challenges in P90X – and still do!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?I loved that in every P90X workout, there were modifications that I could do. Tony’s personality also made the workouts much more enjoyable. I could see results right away, and after finishing 90 days, it was clear that this was a program that actually worked! And it wasn’t just about the workouts; there were so many tools like the fitness guide & meal plans that helped me along the way. I loved Tony’s phrase, “do your best and forget the rest”, and that is now my motto for everything I do.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge?I would say the greatest challenge was just sticking with the program and not giving up. There were so many days that I just thought, “can I really do this?”. My wife was very supportive, but most of my own family wasn’t, and that added more stress on top of an already challenging situation. Scheduling was a big challenge b/c not only was I working full time 3rd shift, I was also having to take care of my dying mother-in-law. Twelve hour days at the cancer center for treatments took a lot out of me. I overcame it all by sticking with my original decision that I HAD to make a change – period.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of?I HIT THE 200LB WEIGHT LOSS MARK THIS MONTH!!! I am healthy for the first time in my life! Losing 200 lbs in 13 months is not an easy task, but I did it and it has to be one of the most amazing feelings I have ever felt before! I’m off all meds now! I now have definition in my arms that I have never had before. I can do push-ups, pull-ups, and everything I never thought I could before! I’m now doing P90X & INSANITY hybrids. I easily completed the Warrior Dash this month as well – a 5k with 12 obstacles solely from doing Beachbody programs. I now have lots of folks asking ME for fitness advice – imagine that! I’ve constantly got friends from high school who are amazed at my results. Remember when I said that my wife & I could not have a baby due to my weight? Well, I am proud to say that due to my weight loss, my wife is now 2 ½ months pregnant! What an achievement from using my Beachbody program!
