Posted by on Feb 19, 2016

Bypassing the bypass

Posted by on Jan 20, 2016

Bill L. has gone through a lot! After having a triple bypass surgery, he came back strong to complete a round of P90X and Insanity and is closer and closer to achieving more goals he’s set for himself in 2012. Hear it in his words below: I have always been an athletic guy who enjoyed working out for most of my life. But middle age had crept up on me, and by the summer of 2010, I was in 3X shirts. I went shopping for pants right before I left for a trip to Ecuador in September of 2010. It was time to move up to 42 waist too. What a horrible feeling. Once in Ecuador, I think adrenaline kicked in for a bit, and I got through things and acted pleasant and happy to be there. But something was not right. It wasn’t just being over-tired. I chalked it up to elevation sickness. That was my excuse for waking up several nights while there with sweats, and not being able to make it up flights of stairs due to shortness of...

Hear it in his words below: I have always been an athletic guy who enjoyed working out for most of my life. But middle age had crept up on me, and by the summer of 2010, I was in 3X shirts. I went shopping for pants right before I left for a trip to Ecuador in September of 2010. It was time to move up to 42 waist too. What a horrible feeling. Once in Ecuador, I think adrenaline kicked in for a bit, and I got through things and acted pleasant and happy to be there. But something was not right. It wasn’t just being over-tired. I chalked it up to elevation sickness. That was my excuse for waking up several nights while there with sweats, and not being able to make it up flights of stairs due to shortness of breath. We were after all, at 11,800 feet elevation. That’s what it must be. While in the town of Shell, my group took a flight into the jungle to visit a tribe there. We had to get individually weighed pre-flight to figure out cargo and fuel needs on the small 4 seat aircraft. I was shocked to see the scale read 282 lbs. I was the heaviest of my group. It was the last day of the trip, and I resolved to make changes once I returned stateside the following day. I went to work the next morning and while sitting at my desk the same symptoms occurred again. Anxiousness, shortness of breath, and a feeling of dread. I called my wife and asked her to make a doctor’s appointment for me. Something was going on. They wheeled me next door to the hospital after a heart catheterization. The doctor arrived and said that I needed coronary artery bypass graft surgery. I had a 90% blockage in one artery, two 70% blockages, and a 50% blockage. I was in serious danger at the age...

Lose Weight Fast with the 21 Day Fix

Lose Weight Fast with the 21 Day Fix

Jan 19, 2016

By now you’ve probably heard all the hype about Beachbody’s new program, 21 Day Fix. It’s designed to take the guesswork out of losing weight, and helps you learn how to eat clean and get results FAST! Check out Ashleen C., who lost her baby weight fast in just 21 days! I just had a baby and was 6 weeks postpartum when I started the 21 Day Fix. I felt out of shape and my belly felt like total jelly, though, it was for a worthy cause! But I wanted to get my hot body back again fast. I am so short on time now that I have a newborn. I needed a program that took the guesswork out of my food prep, plus had quick but efficient workouts. I proved to myself and everyone around me that it when you want something and you accept no excuses from yourself, that you can get your body back (and then some) after having a baby! I want to inspire all the moms out there that they can do this without sacrificing a lot of time and effort The portion control containers… GENIUS!!!! I thought I was healthy until I got this program. I learned so much about how off balance my food intake was! I got my hot body back at only 9 weeks postpartum!!!!! And I have ABS!!!!! That says it all...

Husband and Wife Duo Lose Combined 160 Pounds!

Jan 18, 2016

This Valentine’s Day, we wanted to share the story of an amazing couple that lost weight together!! Check out David and his wife Lindsay who together have lost 160 pounds. You know what they say! The couple that T25’s together thrives together My wife and I have lost 160 lbs since January 2013 thanks to Beachbody! We were miserable, stressed out, and fat. And the worst part about it was, we were still in our 20s. The time of our lives when we should be the happiest! I finally decided to make a chance in January of last year and my wife recently joined me. Since then I have lost over 140 lbs and my wife 20. 160 lbs in 1 year?? It has changed everything and we have Beachbody to thanks. Shakeology changed our lives! We have a lot of#beachbodylove that’s for sure! I was 455 lbs at the end of 2012. I let myself slip, and gained 100 lbs in a year. I was a fast food addict and ate it 5-7 times per week. I had been an athlete my whole life, even earned a D-1 scholarship to play football, but once my playing career was over, I letmyself go. I have always battled with weight, and I always blamed it on something other than myself… I thought “I work out, I play sports, and I can’t lose weight. I’m just doomed.” Finally on January 1st 2013 I took a deep breath and for once in my life I was honest with myself. I was addicted to bad food, sugar, carbs. I was not a victim… I was the killer. And I needed to change. Since that day I have completed insanity twice, combat, P90X and Focus T25. I became a coach, reached diamond in 39 days, helped over 100 people start a program and lost 140 lbs. Recently my wife joined me in Les Mills COMBAT and is now in my Focus T25 challenge group! She has lost 20 pounds! Nearly everyone In my family is doingShakeology and a Beachbody program. And everyone is getting results. used to think my calling was Football. And once that was over I felt...
