Daily Success 1/11/2013 – I wasn’t out of shape—I just wanted more…


At 6’ 1” and 183 lbs., I wasn’t out of shape—I just wanted more. More for myself, more for my wife, and more for my family. I wanted to eat better and be as healthy on the inside, as I was on the outside. I wanted to inspire others while motivating my kids to be good stewards of their own bodies. But most importantly, I wanted to honor God by taking care of the body He gave me.

So I committed to rising at the crack of dawn, doing P90X2®, following the nutrition guide to a T, and drinking Shakeology® daily. Three months later, I lost 13 lbs., went from a 34-inch waist down to a 31, and am in the single digits with my body fat. My core has been strengthened tenfold, which has significantly helped my lower back spasms. And I finally feel comfortable in a swimsuit.

Now that I’m super fit and super healthy, I’m competing in more obstacle races and am getting back into trail running, mountain biking, and kayaking. I even plan to run the Chicago Marathon next October. But my transformation was far from easy. It took a lot of discipline saying no to pizza and donuts, a lot of Energy & Endurance® to get me through my early morning workouts, and it took a lot of support from my family and my Beachbody Coach.

Yet through it all, I stayed focused and NEVER gave up. I feel great and have to say, the results are well worth it.
