Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?*
I felt terrible about myself. Being in the Navy and being the biggest guy in your unit isn’t a good feeling. I was sick of being called “the big guy”. I missed a lot of opportunities and spent a lot of extra money my family didn’t have on uniforms because I had gained so much weight. My weight was becoming a financial strain on my family and it was putting stress on my marriage. On top of all that, I was just unhappy in my own skin.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
In 2012 I had a new baby in the house, and I was gearing up for a deployment. Then I found out my mom had liver cancer. I decided to tough it out and go on the deployment as scheduled instead of staying behind. I didn’t want to be the guy that didn’t go out with my unit. Dealing with my moms health on deployment was much harder than I anticipated it would be. At one point I weighed over 300 pounds. I don’t know the exact weight because I wasn’t willing to stand on a scale. My family made me want to change. Although they were always a positive force pushing me in the right direction, if I didn’t get my act together I would get kicked out of the navy. I decided I couldn’t put my family through that embarrassment.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*
My confidence has been an issue my whole life. Since I finished I don’t mind taking my shirt off in front of my wife. I don’t have to hide myself any more.
Why did you choose this particular program?*
I wanted the sense of accomplishment finishing “the toughest workout every put on dvd.” I like running and hoped Insanity would help me lose the weight and get faster. The reason I kept doing it was because the results were awesome and it was fun.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?*
It took me four tries before I was able to do the program 100 percent from start to finish, so finishing was a huge deal. Losing 61 pounds and getting an excellent on my Navy pt test was something I thought was impossible before I started. I look forward to working out now and it isn’t a chore anymore.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?*
I’m motivated now. I look forward to working out everyday, and I keep looking for the next challenge. I just started P90X3 and I’m already looking forward to submitting those results and either do a second round or try another program. Since I finished I don’t feel like I have to leave my house to get a great workout. Insanity saved my military career. I was on the verge of being separated if I failed another pt test. Now I am switching jobs in the Navy and getting a fresh start. I feel like Insanity gave me the push I needed and made all this possible.
