Please note: My complete story is below my transformation video:
Through out my years of college baseball, I learned a lot about health and fitness, especially since I was a pitcher and endurance training was extremely important to keeping in tip-top shape.
Well, my four years of baseball were gone in the blink of an eye. Once it hit me that my career in baseball was coming to an end, I decided it was time to search the market for a job. When I graduated from college in May of 2008, I lucked out and quickly found a full-time salaried job in an arena in Cleveland, Ohio working as a Food and Beverage Marketing Manager.
This job was extremely demanding. It felt like we worked all day, everyday. With this crazy work schedule, my fitness was the last thing on my to-do list, which was totally the opposite of how I was in college. Going from one extreme to the other completely messed me up.
As months collected under my belt of working this new job, so did the pounds around my belt. Since I wasn’t working out nearly as often as I should and I was exposed to concession-styled foods all day, every day, I quickly lost the athletic physique I once worked so hard to earn. That athletic body I worked so hard on earning was gone in the blink of an eye – late night practices, early morning jogs, intense conditioning, heavy weight lifting, all that work was thrown out the window!
In December of 2009, I had enough and could not stand it anymore. I saw the P90X infomercial after work one night and decided it was my last hope in getting back in shape. I saw that I could do the entire workout at home, which was extremely convenient for me since I had no time to go to a gym.
When P90X came, I knew this was something I had to follow exactly as intended to see the best results possible. I’ve always been a dedicated and motivated individual so it didn’t take me long to fall into my groove with P90X. I can remember to this very day, when I put that first DVD in and completed it, I nearly passed out cause it was the hardest workout of my life – however – from that day on, I was instantly hooked! I BROUGHT IT! I knew this was the workout I needed.
Day 30 of P90X passed and I was seeing decent progress, but I knew that it was only the beginning and I had plenty to go still. Day 60 came and went. I was seeing amazing progress with P90X, but since I am so competitive at heart, I was hungry for more results. I knew if I wanted to boost my results, I had to boost my nutrition. It was day 60 that I started using Shakeology to replace one meal a day. Since then, I have been hooked! Shakeology definitely boosted my energy, metabolism and results.
Day 90 arrived and BOOM!
I remember taking my day 90 pictures and comparing them to my day 0 pictures and I was blown away at what I had accomplished. P90X and Shakeology completely transformed my body in just 90 days. I was able to drop nearly 6% body fat while adding close to 17lbs of lean muscle mass! My body on day 90 was in better shape then I was in my prime of college baseball. Man, only if I had this workout when I was in college. Perhaps, I’d be still playing the game!?
After day 90, I knew that I wanted more. I knew that I had more work to do. I knew I had more I wanted to accomplish. P90X quickly became a lifestyle! I finally fell back into the mindset I had in college! Determined, dedicated, motivated! My health and fitness was finally taken off the back burner and place front and center! Think about it, this is your health we are talking about here! One day wasted could be years off your life! There is no excuse to put your health and fitness on the back burner! Don’t sit there anymore. Don’t wait till it’s too late!
Since starting P90X in December of 2009, I have complete several rounds of it. I have also completed several rounds of Shaun T’s Insanity, as well as the P90X One-on-Ones and Insanity Asylum! There simply is no stopping me now! Bring on P90X2!
Not only have I taken my health to the next level, but I have also decided to pay it forward and help others find the solution they are looking for. I became a Team Beachbody Coach in April 2010 and that has motivated me even more to continue pushing myself for better results! Talk about being held accountable!
