Before losing 92 lbs. with P90X, INSANITY, and Asylum Vol 1, I was disgusted with myself, and had been my whole life. I can’t even recall the number of times I tried losing weight, but nothing ever worked—I was still the fat kid. Failing to achieve my goals would depress the heck out of me and I’d fall back into my bad habits, and there were many. Sadly, it took getting a DUI at 22 for me hit rock bottom and finally decide that enough was enough! I was tired of being fat. I was tired of being depressed. And I was tired of being unhealthy.
To lose all that weight, I spent 9 months busting my butt doing 2 rounds of P90X, and one each of INSANITY and Asylum—which is by far my favorite workout because it tested my body in ways I never imagined! More than anything, I love Shaun T.’s intensity and how he pushes you during workouts. It feels like you are in the same room with him so you give it your all. Specifically, I love the sports drills and the use of the agility ladder, weights, and jump rope. It substantially stepped up my performance and trained me like an athlete. But there were tough days too, and that’s why I’m so thankful for my Challenge Group, Team RockStarFit, and for my wonderful coach, Angie K. She answered all my questions while continually inspiring me to push harder—I couldn’t have done it without her and can’t thank her enough!
I also want to give the same shout out to Trina G. and Nickie C. because they too inspired me on all cylinders and kept me motivated in pursuing my journey and guiding me in the right direction with Team Beachbody. I feel like I was truly meant to find them and Team Beachbody and am truly committed to succeeding and being that person who lifts people up and changes their lives. Thanks guys for all of your help and changing my life!
During my weight loss and muscle building journey, I actually fell in love with eating healthy and now look at food as a lifestyle, not a diet. I also just started drinking Shakeology, which has helped me so much with my results. I love the fact that I’m giving my body everything it needs and deserves.
And while I’m extremely proud of my physical transformation, I never imagined it would alter my mind the way it has. My mentality is through the roof and I truly believe I can accomplish ANYTHING in life. Plus, it’s no longer a drag going to the doctor. Not only have I impressed myself, but my dr. just told me that I’m one of his healthiest and fittest patients, and he can’t believe how much I’ve changed in less than a year. Heck, I can’t believe how much I’ve changed. But if I did it, anyone can—first you believe, then you achieve.
Now I’m a Beachbody Coach and have dedicated my life to inspiring others to change their lives, reach their goals, and accomplish their dreams before they hit rock bottom like I did. I owe Beachbody everything for giving me my life back and making me who I’ve always wanted to be. Next up: INSANITY The Asylum Volume 2.
