One fateful night, Lisa forgot to set the sleep timer on her TV and woke up at 2am to the sound of Debbie Siebers and her Slim in 6® infomercial. Lisa knew she wanted to get in shape for her upcoming 45th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary but wasn’t sure about purchasing something off an infomercial. She wrote the number down and went back to sleep. When she woke up, her reservations were gone, and she ordered the program promptly. While waiting for the package to arrive, she didn’t waste any time and jumped right on the Message Boards. She was blown away by the amount of people and support she found in WOWY®.
When Slim in 6 arrived, she started Pushing Play right away. Lisa fell in love with the Debbie Siebers’ Slim Series® and was able, for the first time, to maintain her weight loss. After completing 2 rounds of Slim in 6, she decided it was time to push a little further. She ordered Turbo Jam® and Turbo Jam® Maximum Results and fell in love all over again. Lisa says that one of her favorite things about Beachbody® products is that she can mix and match the programs to help keep things fresh.
A few months later, one of Lisa’s friends recommended that she try P90X®. At first, she thought she was crazy and that only “hardcore” people could do the X. Her friend assured her that it had worked for her, and it would work for Lisa, too. She bought the program and completed the first 90-day round. Much to her surprise, she loved the program even more than the ones she had tried before. In fact, Lisa says she couldn’t imagine life without P90X. While doing the program, she learned to push her body to the absolute limit. Now, she can do things that she couldn’t do 15 years ago! Since she started Pushing Play with Beachbody, Lisa has lost 30 pounds, 15 percent body fat, and 11 inches off of her body! She’s had such great success that she recently became a Team Beachbody® Coach and looks forward to helping people achieve the same amazing results that she did.
Like so many others, Jason’s story begins back when he was a child. Being “the fat kid” in school was, to say the least, difficult. He would wear his jacket no matter how hot it was, afraid that if he took it off someone would make fun of him. Jason describes himself as an emotional eater. It didn’t matter if he felt good or bad; he would eat too much either way. While he did lose some weight during football season in high school, his poor eating habits remained. Becoming more conscious of his weight during college, he began watching what he ate and exercising periodically. His battle with food was like a roller-coaster ride, and this became the pattern for his life.
After getting married, Jason gained 40 pounds in 6 months. He would catch himself eating his food, getting seconds, finishing what his wife hadn’t eaten, and then grazing on the leftovers throughout the night. Afterwards, he would feel terrible. He quickly became self-conscious about his body, which caused him to eat even more—he even started wearing a shirt to bed. When he and his wife divorced, his self-esteem plummeted. Back on the roller coaster, Jason found himself using food to kill the pain again.
One day, while flipping through the channels, Jason saw an infomercial for P90X®. He watched for a few minutes, waiting for the inevitable “gimmick,” but it never came. What he did see made sense to him. The program promised a complete workout package designed to get you ripped in 90 days; something about the infomercial told him that he could do this. Exactly 90 days before his 29th birthday, Jason ordered P90X. When it arrived, he and one of his friends began immediately. Starting the workouts was hard, and getting discouraged came easily. His busy schedule meant that he would have to make time for his workouts late at night—but this didn’t stop him. Neither did the fact that it was the dead of winter and the only place he had to exercise was a barn with no heater. Working out in a barn in 20-degree weather was tough, but he was committed to giving P90X everything he had for 90 days.
Jason is humble, which is why he finds it hard to talk about how proud he is of his accomplishments. Losing 40 pounds is great, but Jason is even happier about beating his addiction to food. He knows this newfound freedom is something he’ll have to fight to maintain for the rest of his life, but knowing he now has the tools and support makes all the difference.
