Doug Lost Weight and Became Athletic Looking

How about some morning inspiration to start the day off right.  Doug woke up today and found out that he had won $500.00 in The Beachbody Challenge – a contest that you enter and have a chance to win based on your success story.  Doug made a commitment to his family to be healthier, lost weight, got more energy and as a bonus, he and his family have that $500.00 to enjoy!

He was interviewed by Beachbody and then a panel of judges reviewed his interview and before and after pictures and today he became a winner in one more way.  Here is Doug before and after and below his pictures is his interview:


Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?*
I have always worked out in gyms, but never saw great results. It was because I wasn’t pushing myself hard enough, or eating well enough. I just thought having a great body was not in the cards for me.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
At the beginning of every summer, I would see all of the guys at the beach or pool with strong, muscular bodies. I would feel jealous and wish I had that look from both a health standpoint, and a confidence standpoint. A friend had great success losing 50 pounds with P90X, and INSANITY, so I decided to give P90X a shot!

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*
The biggest challenge for me was finding the time. With 2 kids and a full-time job, it was hard to workout. I saw it as selfish. I could have been cleaning the house, or doing laundry, to help out my wife and kids. I had to commit to the program and I did!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?*
I did P90X3 this round to become all around healthier. Not trying to get lean or huge. Just working on flexibility, athleticism, agility, and fitness. X3 is for those who want to enjoy life…period.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
P90X3 burned off that last bit of fat that showed off my abs, but more importantly it got me more flexible and athletic.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?*
Just having more energy to play with my kids and family.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I ran my first; it was great because it got a few others in shape too!

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Josh is amazing. Even though he has thousands of people he is coaching, I felt like I was the only one. He was easy to connect with and would answer any question I had. If I was doubting myself, or the program, he would get me right back on track.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
One benefit, that was not on the label, was a new sense of energy. Since drinking Shakeology, I feel better in every aspect of life. My sleep is better, my energy is better, and I know my body is now working better than it ever has.
