Daily Success 12/31/2012 – Tyric thought he was in shape…


I honestly thought I wasn’t that out of shape. I knew I needed to exercise more, but I didn’t realize how badly I felt about myself until I saw my reflection in the mirror. Not pretty. One thing that motivated me to change my life was my upcoming wedding. You know, guys want to look good on that day, too.

But that wasn’t what really got me to commit. I was ridiculously tired all the time and didn’t want to go outside to play with my son. I’d tell him to go play by himself. I had an absentee father growing up, and I had promised myself I’d always be there for my son—and I was breaking that promise.

I’d seen a friend lose about 20lbs doing P90X. He told me all I had to do was pop in the DVD, hit play and just do what they do. I added Insanity and P90X2 to my workout routine. Since I started, I’ve lost 42lbs and went from 28% body fat to just 5%! I went from that tired slob to a lean machine.

The best part about my transformation is that I became a better husband—and a much better father. As a family we’re way more active. My wife has had amazing success as well, and my son is more active and a better athlete because of it all. I now help other people to do what we’ve done as a family, and it’s the most rewarding “job” I’ve ever had.

Daily Success 12/30/2012 – After losing his parents John knew that he needed to change his life…


Up until a few years ago, I never thought much about health and fitness. As a kid, I ate whatever food was put in front of me and never excelled at any sports. So as time passed, I packed on the pounds and became very lethargic. Even though I was extremely frustrated with my weight and didn’t like what I saw in the mirror, I had no idea what to do about it and eventually lost hope that I’d ever see a real change in myself.

But after losing both of my parents in two years due to health-related issues, I realized that if I didn’t change my ways, I’d be next. So I went on a diet, lost 45 lbs., then hit a plateau. It wasn’t until I started doing Hip Hop Abs®, drinking Shakeology® daily, and sticking to the nutrition plan that the weight started melting away.

So far I’ve lost 68 pounds (from 267 down to 199 lbs.) and a MASSIVE AMOUNT of body fat (from 30% down to 12%). But beyond my impressive stats, when I looked in the mirror, I’m so proud of what I see. And it feels amazing to hear others tell me how great I look. This is the first time since high school that I weigh less than 200 lbs. and words can’t express how proud I am of myself for that accomplishment.

My life has drastically changed since joining my Challenge Group and completing Hip Hop Abs. I feel as if I’m doing my parents proud and that they’re watching over me in my quest to be fit and help others do the same. My confidence has gone through the roof and I’m loving life! And none of this would be possible without Beachbody, MY coach, and everyone’s support. I owe you all my life. Really, I do. Thank you.

Daily Success 12/29/2012 – being legally blind didn’t stop Isatel…



I’ve overcome a lot of obstacles in my life. I was born legally blind, but that didn’t stop me from being the first in my family to graduate from college and travel through Europe. Nothing really stopped me, except the extra weight I’ve been carrying. While in a Freedom from Obesity group at my church, I realized Body Gospel and Shakeology could radically simplify my weight loss plan. I’m not trying to be funny here, but thank God for Body Gospel. Honestly, it saved me.

The fact that I could worship God for His goodness and strength while I worked out was just awesome. I loved the music. I loved the daily devotions. It was just a great fit for me. Since I started the journey, I’ve lost 45lbs and no longer shop in the Plus Size store. Yay! Another miracle.

The other thing I discovered that really helped with my overall well-being was Shakeology. I recently found out that I’m gluten intolerant, which made planning my meals pretty difficult. With Shakeology, all I do is prepare my shake the night before and I’m good to go the next morning. I take the bus, so I always take my daily items with me. Not having to lug a bag full of stuff is a bonus. Not to mention that I have a sweet tooth, so the gluten-free chocolate-flavored Shakeology is a total treat.

Daily Success 12/28/2012 – The birth of his daughter made Roberto realize how sedentary his life was…



My life was sedentary and I didn’t pay enough attention to exercise. I was always tired, weak, and could not rest well. In short, I had very little discipline with myself.

My daughter’s birth motivated me to change because it made me realize I was not alone anymore. I wondered what would happen if one day she wanted to play with me. I didn’t know what to do, I can’t be so active and I’m always tired! Besides, I had an injury that made me gain a bit more weight. That’s when I decided to take control over my life.

I started the Beachbody Challenge™, and little by little my entire body changed. I lost 61 lbs in one round of INSANITY® and 17 lbs in one of Asylum. My blood pressure is at its best level, the cholesterol, in short, all my body underwent a great change and I lost a total of 80 lbs. Shaun T is the best motivational trainer, thanks to his motivation I have a better shape and a better health to keep telling everybody what INSANITY has done for me.

Daily Success 12/27/2012 – Up 65 lbs after an accident, Amy turned around her life…


I was in a horrible car accident in July of 2010 that reduced me from being a very active mom of 3 who was a pilot and a Roller Girl, to someone who could barely move without pain. I needed so many prescriptions and steroid injections just to be able to get up in the morning to attempt to tackle my day. As if the pain wasn’t enough to deal with, I gained 50lbs in just 8 months bringing my weight to 185 lbs.

I had always told my kids “you can do anything”… and now I realized it was time for me to show them. So I got my butt in gear, started drinking Shakeology daily and doing Rockin’ Body,  and as a Girl Scout Leader, I even introduced my girls to Shaun T’s Fit Club.

Shaun T is so motivating and brings so much to his workouts. I jumped full force into Shaun T’s Rockin’ Body — and haven’t looked back.

I still deal with a lot of pain from my accident every day, but my weight loss and improved muscle strength have helped. Plus Shakeology has allowed me to get off most of my meds. I never fell off the schedule or wavered once. I was too happy to risk it.

My life is incredible now. I’m finally able to put the tough times behind me.
I am now down to 120 lbs, less than I originally weighed at the time of my accident. I now know that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to, and my kids have seen that too. They’re so proud of me. That’s what means the most to me. I didn’t just change my life. I changed theirs too.
