Cody J. I Lost 48lbs and Now I Have Abs!

Meet Cody J.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for September 5th!

My life before Les Mills Combat was pretty bland and very unhealthy. I was a struggling musician who had faced a lot of hardships in a short amount of time and it was starting to show, both physically and mentally. I constantly hit up happy hours, ate horribly, and just let myself go to the point that I couldn’t stand who I had become. My motivation to do something about my condition began when people started commenting about how horrible I looked and were joking about the weight I had packed on. I wanted to change, but how?

Then one night I was browsing YouTube videos and watching other people’s transformations when I came across a Beachbody Coach, Jennifer L.’s, video. I contacted Jennifer, told her about my background and lost passion for martial arts, and she highly recommended COMBAT. Once I started doing COMBAT, I never looked back.

My biggest challenge was believing in myself again and finding the willpower to stick with working out and making the changes I so desperately wanted to make. Thankfully, through the support of my Coach (and now girlfriend) and the motivation of friends, I stopped holding myself back and started pushing beyond where I thought I could ever go. What I really liked about COMBAT was that the trainers took the time to walk you through the proper techniques as well as showed you how to modify the moves that either made the workouts more intense, or made them doable on your level, yet still challenging.

In addition to working out daily, Shakeology, Energy and Endurance, P90X Results and Recovery Formula, and ActiVit Multivamins were a huge help in my transformation. I’m not a breakfast person but Shakeology filled the void and provided me with the nutrients I needed to start the day off right. E&E was INCREDIBLE. I’ve never taken a pre-workout supplement that made me feel so energized. P90X Results and Recovery kept me from feeling beaten down the next day as well as kept me on track to keep pushing play. And ActiVit gave me more energy than ever as I went about my daily routine.

The results I’ve achieved through Beachbody are nothing short of amazing! I went from being a 208-pound overweight and careless couch potato to a lean, shredded, and dedicated 160-pound athlete in just 60 days. I just turned 30 and I’m in better shape now than I’ve ever been—and I have the abs to prove it! COMBAT not only helped me change my outlook on life, it helped me get into incredible shape, and it led me to my lovely girlfriend/Coach. Finally, I found that fire within me that I thought was long, long gone. Thanks Beachbody!

Ray E: I Don’t Have to Get Weaker with Age

I lost 27 lbs. with INSANITY and was in better shape than guys half my age!

 Ray E.

At 58 years old I stood 5’ 9” tall, weighed in at 207 pounds, and was in pretty fair shape for my age. But as a law enforcement officer, I know that being in “pretty fair shape for my age” means absolutely nothing when you’re chasing bad guys. My physical abilities (or lack of them) could mean life or death for me and my colleagues. Not wanting to conk out on the job, I bought INSANITY and decided to get in the best shape of my life.

My goal with INSANITY was to lose weight and up my cardio, which I did, but I had NO IDEA that my bad back and aching knees would benefit so greatly from this program. I used to go the chiropractor at least twice a month, and there were many days that my back would hurt so bad that I couldn’t even get out of bed. But since starting INSANITY, I haven’t gone to the chiropractor once! NOT ONCE!!! And both my knees and back are about 75% better than before I started.

Not only did this workout help mend my broken body, I’ve lost 27 lbs., stopped eating junk food, and can finally fit into pants I haven’t worn in years. Plus, I’m now so much faster than ever before, my cardio is way up there, and my martial arts ability has greatly improved. I work with a lot of young people in law enforcement, and since doing this insane program, I’m in so much better shape than most of them…and they know it. Boy does that feel good—physically, and emotionally!

I also use the P90X Results & Recovery Formula®, which at first I thought was just another sales pitch. But when my supply ran out, I realized: Man…I need that stuff bad! So I signed up for home delivery to make sure I’d never, ever, ever run out again.

Before I started INSANITY I had no idea how hard it was gong to be. I just followed the DVD’s the best I could and cranked music to keep me going. Throughout the entire 60 days I didn’t use anything in my workouts except for a bottle of water and a rag, and my results were amazing. Actually, I’m kind of scared to stop doing INSANITY because I fear that my back will start acting up again. So I guess that just means, I’m hooked for life.

William B. Won $500 in Beachbody Challenge Daily Prize

Meet William B.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for February 27th!

Talk about a complete mess—before I started with Beachbody, I was totally out of control. Every day was the same—work…drink 8 cups of coffee…smoke 2 packs of cigarettes…work…go home…gorge on food till I’d pass out in a food coma…then get up and do it all over again.

I was on meds for depression, anxiety, and acid reflux. I hated every picture of myself, and actually deleted years of my life because I couldn’t stand the way I looked. And I desperately needed a change.

So after seeing an infomercial for P90X, I said, okay. I did P90X and loved it. Everything was a challenge—learning to eat, learning to work out—but I stuck with it. It was the start of my journey, and I loved it. It got me back on track. But the thing that really changed my life was Body Beast. It just seemed like the next logical step—and it was. Bulk, baby, bulk became my mantra.

And every part of my life has changed. I LOVE fitness and living life, versus just watching it pass me by. I do mud runs and races. My relationships have gotten better. I got my confidence back. Got my self-esteem back. Got my thirst for life back. And I’ve got a better body than ever before!

Body Beast—and Beachbody—changed my life…and they can change yours, too!
