Daily Success 1/10/2013 – When my child asked, “Mommy, what’s wrong with your belly?”


When my boyfriend began to lose interest in me because of my weight, that was bad. But when my child asked, Mommy, what’s wrong with your belly?” I knew I had to confront my problem, get into shape and get my health back.

I needed a program that was going to get me fast results—and didn’t require me to buy weights, because money was tight—so I picked TurboFire.

I committed myself to 90 days and told myself that I could do this. I just had to press play every day and give it my all. And guess what? I loved TurboFire! I loved how fun losing weight was with TurboFire. I didn’t feel like I was working out.

It wasn’t easy. But I kept going. Once my family saw my 30-day picture, they couldn’t believe I was doing it and losing weight. But I was! The pictures and keeping track of my weight kept me going. I have now lost a total of 58 lbs. and 45 inches over all.

Mostly, I’ve done it by myself. But my Challenge Group has been a big help. The advice I have gotten with what to eat (portions and how often) had such a huge impact on my weight loss!

I’m so happy. I’m pumped and have lots of energy. I actually feel sexy for once in my life. And my boyfriend actually tells his friends to “look at his new girlfriend!”

I’m not done, though. Now this Mama wants some abs!”

Daily Success 1/3/2013 – After adopting a child the weight started to pile on


My husband and I wanted a baby more than anything. We tried and tried, but after six years of infertility and the heartbreak of a miscarriage, depression kicked in. And the eating took over.

The more weight I gained, the more depressed I got. When we adopted, I stayed home with our baby and continued to eat. I just assumed that this was the way my life was always going to be. Until the night my husband and I were supposed to go out—and even my FAT jeans didn’t fit.

So the next day, I started my journey. I was sick of what I’d become and I realized that I wanted to be there for my son. So I chose TurboFire as my program—and the results were AWESOME! It seemed like the more inches I lost, the more I wanted to push myself harder.

After TurboFire, I completed one round of Insanity, then a round of Les Mills Pump. And I can’t quit. Shakeology is HUGE. It gives me energy and I LOVE that I am drinking a shake that is SO good for me. Being in a Challenge Group helped keep me motivated and having people give me tips and share their down moments helped me see that I am not alone.

So far I’ve lost 80 lbs., I’ve run two 5K races, an 8K, and a half marathon. I feel great. I look great. I feel so much stronger as a woman, wife and mother. My posture has improved, too. I think that goes with holding my head a little higher knowing I have completed these workout programs!

Daily Success 12/26/2012 – As a nurse Lana was taking care of other but not herself

19-LanaD -TJ-TF


As a nurse, I’m really good at taking care of other people. But I’m not so good a taking care of myself. I think it started back in nursing school when all I did was study. Exercise was low on the list of priorities. The crazy thing is as a nurse you learn how many illnesses can be prevented if you just take care of yourself and exercise.

I didn’t want my husband or kids getting stuck caring for me because I chose to eat junk food and sit on the couch. I know that sometimes things happen in life, but the chances would be way slimmer if I just took control of my own health and made better choices. So I did.

I started with TurboJam and TurboFire. Chalene Johnson is such an inspiration with the things she says and how much fun she makes working out.

I saw other people’s before & after pictures and I knew that I could be one of those people. After a few months, I had definitely lost weight but I didn’t have the muscle tone I wanted. I found myself going back to how much I like Chalene, so I ordered ChaLEAN Extreme®.

All I had to do was get over my own hesitations about lifting weights. I thought it would be totally boring, but boy was I wrong. I have muscles now. And I think that’s awesome. When I look in the mirror now, I see my thighs getting thinner. I see a confidence I never knew before. And I like it. A lot.

Daily Success 12/24/2012 – After two miscarriages Michelle had severe depression



My life before TurboFire was a roller coaster. After I had my daughter, I got pregnant twice and each ended in miscarriage. The worst was going into early labor at 17 weeks and having to say good-bye to my son who passed away after birth.

I went into severe depression and just lost it. I couldn’t do anything. Didn’t want to leave the house. I just ate. I felt like I was worthless. I guess I just turned to food. My health spiraled out of control. I was unhappy and leading a completely unhealthy lifestyle.

My Beachbody Coach, saved me. He was hosting a TurboFire Challenge Group and asked me to join every night. Finally I gave in and said yes.

The program had great music and I used to be a dancer, so I loved the dance. But Chalene made the biggest difference. She is amazing. Whenever I want to quit, she is on my TV yelling, “YOU’RE NOT TIRED!”

When I started the TurboFire Challenge, I weighed 130 lbs.—when day 90 came, I weighed in at 112 lbs.! I even lost 13.5 inches overall. My entire philosophy has changed. I drink Shakeology. I’m more confident. I love the way I look. My energy levels are through the roof. And my husband and I are closer than ever!

Daily Success 12/19/2012 – Christy was a mess after 30 years of dieting

Growing up, I always had to watch my weight. After I had children, I went on a roller coaster of dieting—I was the “Queen of Dieting” through my 20’s, 30’s and 40s. As I headed for the dreaded “50” mark, I was a mess. Too heavy. My blood pressure out of control. I absolutely hated myself.

When I started having heart palpitations, my doctor threatened blood pressure meds. I just wasn’t going to let that happen. So on January 1, 2012, I started Les Mills Pump and FELL IN LOVE!!! The first month, I lost 7 lbs. and 8.5 inches. I knew I had found my soul mate workout Then I added Shakeology and TurboFire and I was rocking.

At 51, I’m in the best shape of my life. So far, I’ve lost 28 pounds and my blood pressure went from 165/89 to a nice normal range of 119/64! My doctor was shocked and he’s so proud. I owe it all to Shakeology and Chalene for all the high energy she brings to my TV. I’m so pyched for LES MILLS COMBAT, I’ve already ordered it!

Daily Success 12/14/2012 – Military mom of four loses 39 lbs

“It wasn’t the jiggly thighs or the yoga pants I started wearing when I couldn’t fit into my jeans. No, I knew I hit rock bottom when I was asked to “tag” the people in the photo I uploaded to Facebook and realized that those people were my face and protruding stomach!

That was it. As a military wife and mother of four, it was time to start taking care of myself. A friend was doing TurboFire, so I submitted my order. After 90 days, I felt great…and looked great. I was hooked. My butt and legs needed work, so I did Brazil Butt Lift. My thunder thighs and muffin top disappeared.

After that, I wanted to tone my upper body, so I did LES MILLS PUMP. Before I’m done, I’m going to do every Beachbody program. And here’s why: I’ve lost 39 pounds and over 26 inches. My thighs are tight. My post-baby pooch is gone. I have more confidence and energy than ever.

And thanks to my Challenge Groups and Facebook friends I’ve made, I have a community of friends who respect me and inspire me. Now that my husband has been posted to Ohio, I’m not alone. I have Beachbody…and a whole new me.”

Daily Success 12/11/2012

By my second year of college I was 40 pounds overweight, had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I knew I needed to make a change so I started eating salad and “working out” by going to the gym— when I had the energy to walk there. Shockingly nothing changed and I continued to feel bad for myself so I soothed my negative feelings with Ben and Jerry’s and macaroni and cheese and gained 15 more pounds.

It took God, my brother and a dress to change my life. I wanted to honor the body God gave me, and I vowed to get healthy. The perfect opportunity came when my brother proposed to his fabulously skinny fiancé! I refused to be the elephant standing next her in the wedding. So with a promise to God, a wedding quickly approaching and a beautiful vintage orange and pink dress hanging in my closet it was time I committed to changing my life.

I was finally mentally ready to make a change and the only question left to answer was How. After joining the Beachbody community and finding my amazingly positive and supportive coach, Katie, I learned TurboFire and P90X were the answer! They helped me transform my life from the inside out. Once I started the programs I began to think positively and believed in myself again. I was finally alive!

After 90 days of P90X, I lost 22 pounds. Before I had the chance to start another program I sadly sprained my ankle but I refused to give up and I continued to eat clean and lost 5 more pounds. AND once my ankle healed, I started TurboFire, and after 12 weeks I lost another 13 pounds. I’ve learned that I can do incredible things if I decide and commit. And in case you were wondering I look awesome in the fabulous orange and pink size 4 petite vintage dress that was waiting for me to finally start caring about myself and my health again! I feel great!
