Thank you Beachbody!

Once I realized I was losing lots of weight, I wanted to get out and challenge myself.  I recently finished the Spartan Sprint here in Georgia and just signed up this past week for a half marathon.  The very same half marathon I ran when my wife and I first met back five years ago.  She came down to visit and went with me for support.   I plan to go back and finish that race just like I did before I got so heavy.  I am thankful for Beachbody and Tony Horton because they have given me the drive and courage to get out and enjoy life again. I am back baby!

Shortly after Tricia and I met I put all my running and cycling aside.  I stopped all physical activity.  I continued to eat out but without the exercise I was not able to maintain my weight.  I ballooned up to 240 pounds.  At that weight I could not imagine running or riding bikes.  I was in terrible shape.  The activities I enjoyed were not possible for me at that weight.  Even if they were, I was not going to let my friends see where I had ended up.  Read more of My Story.

The reason I am thankful to Beachbody and Tony Horton is they have given me my fitness back.  Tony Horton’s P90X provided a great way to work out in the comfort of my home.  The workouts are challenging enough to keep me coming back with modifications to do what I could. Without the healthy nutrition from Beachbody products like Shakeology and fitness programs like P90X I would not be where I am now.  I am now fit and enjoy pushing myself to achieve a higher level of fitness.  I am registered for the Silver Comet Half Marathon and my plans are to tackle a full marathon next spring.

If you find yourself in that position where you need to lose lots of weight just remember you are not alone.  I have gone through it.  I was once obese.  I have gone from heavy and miserable to fit and happy.  Many of the Team Beachbody coaches were also just like you at one time.  I am sure I can speak for the others when I say we would love to help you reach your fitness goals.  What will your challenge be?  What you would like to achieve if your fitness was not in the way? Go after it!
