Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was using the Beachbody workout programs and having really great success. However, I had some injuries from sports that forced me to stop working out. I had a hernia surgery, tore my groin muscle, strained an oblique muscle, and tore the tendon that connects from your knee to your pelvic bone. Because of this, I wasn’t even allowed to stretch for 7.5 months due to the recovery process. Over that time, I stopped eating healthy as well. I became a couch potato, shut myself out from everyone, and became depressed. I’d never experienced anything like this before. I didn’t feel good about myself at all. I could hardly help out at home because of my restrictions. It made life very hard.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I took a look in the mirror and didn’t like what I saw. I was also a wrestling coach and I’m a Beachbody Coach. I knew that people were counting on me to help them. Most importantly, my family was counting on me. So, while I wasn’t cleared to workout yet, I started drinking my Shakeology for the next 2.5 months to kick start my health. Then once I was cleared to workout, I completed one round of Body Beast to get to where I am today. Sagi is amazing. Between him, Shakeology and my Coach, my life is forever changed.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The thing I liked about Shakeology is that with Shakeology I not only received help in weight loss, but I gained overall health benefits. I felt like I had more energy. With Body Beast, what I liked most about that is it’s an intense weight lifting program. A program that I can do at home and not need $10,000 worth of equipment to get results.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
I have my life back. My wife and kids are the most important thing in my life. I’m able to do even the small things again with my girls, such as play games with them or run around with them. Being able to pick them up and not be worn out from it is a great feeling. On top of that, I lost a total of 10″ around my hips and waist. I lost 12% body fat and 20 pounds! I gained a total of 19 inches between my neck, shoulders, chest, arms, and legs.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Shakeology and Body Beast have completely changed my life. Because of the success I’ve had using these, I entered my very first ever physique competition and had a blast! I never thought I would do one in my life. Always thought they were cool. I’ve also had people asking me if I’m a model. When I tell them I’m not, they generally ask me why not?! The other cool part is my friends and family have taken notice of my new look. They continue to ask me what I’m doing to gain so much success in my health and fitness. My goal is to help as many people as I can with their health and fitness. It has changed my life and made me a better person. I want to do everything I can for the next person.
