My first introduction to Beachbody was P90X. Have you seen the informercial? I think almost everyone has at some point because it’s been around forever. I had seen it so many times I could tell you which workout or success story was coming up next.
I REALLY wanted to try it but I didn’t know if I could actually do it because I was so out of shape. I’d had weight issues my whole life due to lack of discipline, mostly. My eating habits were terrible. Like most people I ate a lot of fast food, sweets, treats, and junk food in general. Sound familiar? When I was younger I could lose the weight just by exercising – walking, swimming, some weight training thanks to my DP Gympac. It was a gift from my husband the first year of our marriage. (We still have it 26 years later. I still haven’t figured out why.)
I needed an effective fitness program that included a nutrition plan. Exercise alone was not enough these days. I needed to start putting the right foods into my body too.
Anyway, I knew I needed to get healthy and Tony Horton finally convinced me to get off the couch! So I finally ordered it.
I had to modify a lot at first. A lot. Over time, however, I found that I modified less and less because I was getting stronger. I could even do a few push ups the regular way – off my knees! I still couldn’t do pull-ups but I found that the resistance band was an excellent substitution for a pull-up bar. Much to my surprise, plyometrics became one of my favorite workouts. I was hooked!
I finished the 90 day challenge, proud and in the best shape of my life. I had lost about 10 lbs, lost many inches all over my body, and gained muscle. P90X took me from a size 12 to a size 6! I was so shocked that I could be that fit. Shocked and very, very happy. Thank you Tony Horton! And thank you Beachbody!
