Kevin Discovered the “P90X Lifestyle”

When I saw Kevin’s story in the Team Beachbody newsletter, I knew that I should share it with you.  Success stories are what inspire us and motivate us and Kevin’s story is so typical of what so many men face these days – in shape in high and college and in the military and then they come home a life takes over and health and fitness as a priority get shuffled to the bottom of the list.  Kevin, though, took charge of his life, participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for April 6th!

Kevin lost 64 pounds with P90XHere is the prize winner’s interview conducted by the Team Beachbody staff:

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before running across the P90X lifestyle, I was (obese) at 32.9% body fat, stuck in the everyday teleworker lifestyle; the never ending loop of sleep, eat, work. Did I mention I was out of shape? After a brief tour in the Army, I started my professional career and have been completely focused on it since.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I can remember writing down my Day 0 numbers and thinking, “Wow, how sad….How did you let yourself get like this?” Recording those numbers (Weight: 195lbs, Height: 5’7”, Waist: 38”) was a huge wakeup call for me. My father’s passing and struggles with high blood pressure, gout, diabetes and obesity for the latter 20 years of his life, was a reminder of where I was heading. I did NOT want to subject myself or my loved ones to this. It was time to change my life.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I would have to say that the biggest challenge I had to face before starting the program was simply the feeling of actual self-fulfillment. To quote, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” I wanted to find something that I was 100% responsible for, something that only I was to blame for failure or congratulate for success. Team Beachbody and P90X have helped me find this. While I have not yet reached my overall goal, I have surpassed what others and I have expected.

Why did you choose this particular program?
I started the P90X program back in March of 2013 with the encouragement of several co-workers. Four of us decided to start the P90X program and were committed to completing it. Two of us stuck with it, and have completed the program several times over since.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m Happy!!! I’m Confident!!! I’ve lost over 20% body fat and over 8″ in my waist. I’ve proven to myself that I can do it!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Saying that everything has changed may seem a bit cliche, but it’s the truth. Accomplishing this has given me a sense of fulfillment that I did not have before.

So what do you think of Kevin’s story?  Does it sound like your life?  Are you looking at your family health history and wondering if your lifestyle choices are going to make you follow in unhealthy footsteps?

You can change your life by taking The Beachbody Challenge™. It provides great motivation to get fit and the chance to win cash prizes. To enter The Beachbody Challenge, just go to my Howtobefit.com website and click on “Enter the Challenge” on the left hand side of the page.

P90X Did Not Change My Life

Looking for something good to post this afternoon proved fruitless until I saw a comment in one of my Facebook groups.  It was from a friend that I very much admire who hasn’t been successful yet financially as a Team Beachbody coach.  That is not unusual to hear and that same refrain can be heard in a lot of different forums.  For example, lots of people say that, “I’ve been working out for ____________ and I haven’t lost a pound.”  Or, “This was supposed to be the best fishing spot ever, and I haven’t caught a thing.”  Or, “I’ve been practicing for __________________ and I still suck at ____________.”

If you measure success at something only based on a narrow criteria like how much money you made or how many fish you caught or what place you got, then you can often be disappointed.  Sometimes there are other things that you should be aware of that are broader and more significant measures of success.

When I got P90X on March 25th, 2007, it didn’t change my life.  I had been a personal trainer for years and knew how to work out.  I could have used other workouts to get in shape, we all know that.  But when I look back, the concept that Beachbody was using – with a funny and engaging trainer and a group of other people that you could relate to working out with you – that concept did change my life.  I knew then, that other people would enjoy Tony Horton as much as I did and would get results from doing P90X.

I was also, as a Team Beachbody coach, part of a larger picture of what was possible when I got involved in the Team Beachbody community.  People needed advice and I gave it.  People needed inspiration and I provided it.  People needed accountability and I was there for them.  I got a sense of accomplishment from helping other people that changed my life.  I also became a full time Team Beachbody coach and have been able to raise my children, never having to send them to daycare and being part of their lives in everything that they do.

I also began to meet other people in Team Beachbody – other coaches, members and even got to know most of the people at Beachbody because it is more like a family than a company.  They all changed my life in positive ways and over the last almost 6 years (January 8, 2013 is my 6th anniversary as a coach), they have enriched my life in so many incredible ways.

Jim Jacobsen, the coach who is disappointed in not making money yet, is no exception and I wouldn’t have gotten to know him and have him as a friend if it hadn’t been for Team Beachbody.

When I began this post, I was reminded of a SimpleTruths video entitled, “To A Child, Love is Spelled TIME”.  That video shares the same theme.  I would ask that you click on the image below and watch the 3:00 video and see if you don’t agree that what we do in life shouldn’t be measured by narrow criteria, but instead by the positive impact that it has that we may not even be aware of.  The man in the story found out many years too late what one day meant to his son.

To the father, the day was wasted because they didn’t catch any fish. To the son, it was the best day of his life.

Don’t Just Build Your Body, Build Your Dreams

If you are only focused on your weight problems or image problems or health problems, then you are being selfish. Instead of just working on your body and building your body, you could be building your dream and building the dreams of others at the same time.

Are you just going to the gym or working out at home and solely thinking about your issues? Well what about the same issues faced by all of the people around you that you could be solving while you solve your own? If you could change a person’s life and give them the gift of health and fitness and better quality of life, wouldn’t you do it? And if you could help them take their dreams out of the closet and dust them off and help them make their dreams a reality, wouldn’t you do it?

Team Howtobefit and Team Beachbody have those solutions. You can lose weight, get healthy and feel great with Team Beachbody workout DVD’s and products. With Team Howtobefit, you can build your own business that will move you toward financial independence just by sharing your success with others.

Everyone around you has a story – whether they are fit and healthy and have good jobs, they still have something that they wish that they could change. Everyone wants either more money, more time or more recognition and Team Beachbody can offer you all three. Maybe the fit person is going to the gym all the time to work out. With Team Beachbody you can save on gym memberships, have more time and spend more time with your family. Maybe the person with the good job is working 60 hours a week and needs more time to spend with family and friends and just enjoying life. With Team Beachbody, you can build a business that will give you residual income and allow you to work less hours and make more money.

If you have passion, ambition and a dream, don’t just focus on problems that are affecting you because virtually everyone has the same problems, the same desires and the same dreams and you can reach out to them and help them change their lives while you change yours.

Wondering how much it costs and how you can start? There is a $39.95 one time sign up fee to start your Team Beachbody business and after 30 days, you will be billed $14.95 a month for the 3 websites that you are given to promote your business. You will need to purchase P90X and that will be $89.89 with your 25% business member discount.

So for an initial outlay of no more than $130.00 and then just $14.95 a month, you are the CEO of your own company, you have a workout program with a personal trainer, a nutrition plan and a personal coach to help you get fit and build your business. You have the ability to be the Jillians and Bobs of the world and you have the ability to change the physical condition of everyone in this country. You may have success now, but changing the life of someone by helping them lose weight, get in shape, improve the quality of their life and maybe in the process add a few years to their life will give you significance.

If you focus on helping someone else and building friendships and relationships in the process, your own problems will have less meaning and will be solved along the way as a byproduct of passionately reaching out to others in need.

C.S. Lewis said, ” A Friendship Is Born at That Moment When One Person Says to another, ‘What! You Too? I Thought I Was the Only One.” You aren’t the only one with problems and if you could solve other people’s problems while you solved your own, why wouldn’t you do it?

To start your own business today, just click here for a 30 day free trial. If it isn’t for you, you can get a full refund before the trial period is over. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose…

I think that it is sad that they do business that way

Team Beachbody is an extraordinary company on so many levels and I can say that because I’ve been a Team Beachbody Coach since the very beginning.  It is great people with honesty and integrity doing their utmost to help other people reform their health.  This is a comment that I have to share because it is so disappointing and speaks volumes of the writer:

“I gotthe p90x for my birthday from my doughter dont know how she came by it but I dont have the nutrition plan either. I will try beachbody one more time then I will order the system on my own and return it as thay let you keep that aneyway
I think that it is sad that they do business that way.”

Dude, you have a bootleg version with no guides and you want Team Beachbody to send them to you.  You have the audacity to say, when they don’t want to give them to you, “I think that it is sad that they do business that way.”  But you are willing to order it and return it and keep the guides just to get them and rip them off even more?  I think that it is sad that you do life that way…

Another fun thing about WOWY is that you can meet other people at any time of the day or night who are working out and feeling great.  WOWY is like social networking for fitness and you are guaranteed to meet other people who share a common interest in fitness and health.  These are people of all ages, genders, races and nationalities from all over the country who have all said yes to being healthy.

You owe it to yourself to get the most out of P90X, so join us today.  Who knows, you could also be $300 or a $1,000 richer just for working out.  See you in the gym!
