Life before the P90X Challenge Pack was filled with fast food and horrible eating habits. I never had the will to work out. I just felt so bad about myself. Then I got laid off from work. It was such a bad time for me. I knew I had to change my life. Especially since my family on my father’s side had a history of heart problems. I’ve been obese all my life, and seeing what could happen with a heart condition or diabetes scared me.
So I decided to see what life could be like and jumped at the chance to make a change.
I picked P90X, but I had two major challenges: committing to the program and changing the way I ate. The P90X nutrition guide and Shakeology made nutrition super easy for me. Drinking Shakeology gave me so much energy, people at work call me “Speed Racer!”
And Tony took care of the rest. Sure the workouts were tough, but Tony’s whole “do your best and forget the rest” mentality had a lasting effect on me. That was the mentality I had doing P90X and it really worked for me.
Now I’m in the best shape of my life. I went from 245 pounds to my current weight of 165. That’s 80 pounds gone—from working out in my living room. It’s truly mind-blowing. My cardio is great. My physique is really starting to form. And my abs are crazy. I smile every time I think about it.
But I didn’t get this way on my own. Tony is a super trainer, and my Challenge Group pushed me. I guess knowing that I was never alone made a huge difference. When it was late at night and I was absolutely drained of energy, I could see my friends working out, and that gave me the motivation to push through.
My Coach, my Challenge Group, Tony, P90X and Shakeology changed my life. I feel great. I’m more positive. My confidence level is through the roof. I’m no longer afraid of challenges. I’m happy. I’m healthy. And I can honestly say I’m actually “living” now. And that’s pretty darn cool!
