YOUR Fitness Journey

Emphasis on YOUR journey.  This is a time when it is all about YOU.  How do you want to feel as you go through your day, week, years?

Have you ever really stopped to think “What are MY fitness priorities and goals?” instead of assuming expectations set by others (ie. media, culture, friends, family)?

Here are some factors to consider:

  • Energy level
  • Health (disease free, blood pressure, etc.)
  • Flexibility
  • Strength
  • Size/shape
  • Self confidence

When you put a standard or goal for each of these that is specific for where you feel your best and are able to live life in the most joyful and satisfying fashion, then that is the level of fitness that is perfect for YOU!  

It is never too late to pursue and achieve the goals of YOUR Fitness Journey.

See below how a few people have moved toward their goals.

Karen - age 62

We’ve all had those moments when we’ve thought, “I could do it, but it’s just too late” — especially when it comes to getting fit and healthy.

But Karen, age 62, is living proof that’s it’s never too late to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Karen’s Life, Before
My life before Beachbody was okay. I was morbidly obese, so getting around wasn’t always easy; I struggled. I worked EMS, so my job was demanding and very hard on my body. Climbing into a car down in a ditch, well let’s just say it was difficult. I remember getting on a ride once, and they couldn’t shut the door. So, I was asked to get off. Or in a plane seat and not be able to buckle in. Such humiliation!

I hated me. I hated the way I looked! My inability to get around and just play with my grandbabies. That was my life!

In 2014, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and that word everyone dreads — “cancer.” The next year was a roller coaster ride. I got my diabetes under control with medication and had a total hysterectomy. I lost 50 pounds — 50 pounds! But in less than a year, it was back on and then some.

Karen’s Transformation
On August 15, 2016, I made that commitment once and for all. My daughter inspired me; she loved me hard and helped me begin my journey.

My greatest challenge was nutrition and exercise. This program was my prayer answered. Understand, I was the gal who tried everything you can imagine to lose weight. Every stinkin’ gimmick out there, I tried. I lost weight here and there only to put it right back on and then some. I was a quitter.

I signed up for Beachbody On Demand and started with T25. Oh boy, it was an effort to get through, but each day got just a little easier. I actually enjoyed sweating because I knew I was getting results.

Being able to work out from home is AWESOME. There is no judgment.

I started Shakeology from the very beginning. Let me tell you, my energy is incredible. Once I learned proper nutrition — the abundance of food that you can eat is crazy, because it’s all healthy. I have done seven Challenge Groups, and this is where I have my greatest success. I’m a competitor. Who knew?!

I really like Beachbody On Demand. I love the ability to stream my workouts right from home and from anywhere in the world when we travel. It’s cheaper than any gym I could ever go to, and I get one-on-one training with some of the best fitness trainers on the planet. It’s a win-win.

Karen’s Life, After
To date, I have lost 148 pounds. Went from a size 24 to a size 8. I have confidence, pride, and I feel young and alive.

My husband was standing in the doorway one day smiling and chuckling as I was getting ready. I asked him what was so funny, and he said, “You know, I never thought I would see you this small.” Do you know how that makes me feel?  INCREDIBLE!!!

I can go to the water park and climb a million stairs and not feel out of breath. Play with my grandbabies, climbing, and going down a slide with them when they say, “Come on, Grandma.” I can fit on our Harley, with lots of room to spare. It’s the little things.

I am proud that I have finally conquered my fears, my negativity, speaking death over myself. God gave me another chance, and I ran with it and never looked back. Beachbody gave me the tools to take control once and for all.


Amy - Lost 41 lbs. in 6 months

In December 2015, I was extremely uncomfortable and out of shape. After a full day of chasing my three kids around, I was exhausted.

I love that it focuses on stretching and strength training with your own body weight. Because PiYo is low-impact, it was easier for me to mentally push through a workout even when I didn’t think I could finish.

I honestly feel like a whole new person. I am happy, healthy, and confident. I have learned to love myself for who I am and what I know I can become. I am so proud of my body!

 


Rosemary - Lost 64 lbs

This mother of five took back her body and lost 64 pounds with Beachbody home fitness programs and Shakeology.

She says: “After having five kids, my body had taken a huge toll. I was no longer active, always tired, and my confidence was so low. I used to love shopping for clothes but had grown to hate it because nothing I tried on would fit anymore. I was inspired to get my body back after seeing my sisters success with 21 Day Fix and Shakeology.

In only two weeks I saw the difference in her and saw her body begin to change. My results after 15 months with Beachbody have been amazing! I have lost over 60 pounds and can feel myself getting stronger every day.

My favorite part of BOD is that I get to stay home! I do not have to go out anymore and fight for a machine at the gym, or feel embarrassed because I didn’t know how to use the machines. I also love that I get a personal trainer every day showing me what to do and how to do my workouts.”


Elizabeth - age 60 & down 49 lbs.

Beth was tired of being a Nana who hung out on the sidelines. In six short months of utilizing the workouts and nutrition guides on Beachbody On Demand, she has lost 49 pounds and is happy to be back to an active lifestyle with her grandkids.

She says: “Beachbody On Demand has definitely changed the way I work out – mostly because I never used to work out. Before beginning Beachbody on Demand, I had very little energy, trouble sleeping, foggy mind, and forgetfulness. As I watched my grandchildren play, I could not keep up with them.

Instead of being able to play at the park, I watched from a bench. It was clear that I needed a change. My Coach inspired me to get started with 21 Day Fix. I have now lost 49 pounds and am getting closer to my goal weight every day.

I use BOD several times a week and can always feel the difference it makes in my energy level and frame of mind. At 60 years old, I can promise others that there is hope in the path to weight loss, more energy, and increased stamina. BOD is a wonderful source for more information on the nutrition, various fitness programs, stretching, and comments from others. It is there whenever I want it. Regardless of the day of the week, hour of day, or weather outside, the programs are all available in one place.”
