Daily Success 2/19/2013 – I was a coffee and sugar junkie


I was at the lowest point in my life. At 47, I was depressed, sick all the time with colds, bronchitis and vertigo from stress. I was a coffee and sugar junkie. I couldn’t bear to see myself without clothes. And I was fed up with my own BS and excuses for the sad shape I found myself in.

When my doctor prescribed anti-depressants that just made me more dizzy and stressed (if you can believe that), a martial arts friend of mine suggested I try this crazy program called P90X. I told myself it was time to try nature’s anti-depressant—endorphins.

Guess what? It worked! P90X fit me like a glove. I was addicted to Tony and his sense of humor. The mix of strength, cardio, and flexibility kept it fun. But what I liked most was that I didn’t have to think about what I was doing each day. I just had to get out of bed and Push Play!

After P90X, I did Insanity and Insanity, The Asylum. I became a Beachbody Coach to “pay it back” for the results I got. And then I tackled P90X2, which took me places I never knew about. The core strength and balance work were mind-blowing. Can you believe it? I could do levers and 4-ball pushups!!!

I am a new man inside and out. I have a new career as a Beachbody Coach that will retire me from my day job and give me the PERFECT vehicle to change other people’s lives in the most profound way.

I WILL NEVER go back to the person that I had become, EVER! I will forever be a Beachbody junkie living a life of passion for health and fitness and helping others do the same. After what happened to me, I owe that to Tony and Beachbody, my Coach and everybody in my Challenge Group who kept me on track!
