Power 90 Success Story

From Team Beachbody - Click here for resources, tools and information to help you to reach your health, fitness and positive lifestyle goals!

My story begins like many others. I was a skinny kid till I got to high school. Then my metabolism changed, and the burgers and fries I was eating on a regular basis helped me pack on the pounds. I would diet and lose weight, only to gain it back and then some. I continued this yo-yo cycle throughout my adult life.

At the age of 36, I found myself a very unhappy and depressed person. I weighed 343 pounds. Even on my 6' 4" frame, I was unhealthy and obese. To make matters worse, I am a law enforcement officer. Do you have any idea what people say about an out-of-shape, overweight cop?

Power 90 Success Story Before
Power 90 Success Story After
BEFORE AFTER

It was often very mean and hurtful. When you're dealing with the public and you're the fat guy in a uniform, people really lose respect, and the commanding presence just isn't there. It had become a big safety issue for me and my beat partners that I was so out of shape. I knew I had to do something.

I went back to the only thing I knew: I began to diet again. As usual, I lost a lot of weight with diet alone and dropped from 343 down to roughly 250 pounds. That took about 10 months. Also as usual, I slowly returned to my bad eating habits and with no exercise or healthy lifestyle in place, the weight started to creep back until I was 263 pounds. I felt myself getting out of control. I panicked and started to feel the depression all over again.

It was about that time, in December 2003, that I saw the Power 90 infomercial on TV. Initially I thought that since I was never really into exercise, this would be just one more thing I bought, tried for a couple of weeks, and then put away on the shelf, never to do again. After all, I was still paying for the gym membership I hadn't used in months! I thought, why would this be any different?

I continued watching the show and was impressed with what I saw. There were real people (customers) talking about their success with the program. These were not fitness professionals with unreal bodies giving testimonials. These were real people with real, visible results. I decided to call and give it a try. I knew how to lose weight with diet, but I knew I needed to incorporate exercise into my life to maintain lifelong fitness. I didn't want to go back to being over 300 pounds and hating life. I wanted to see the results those people had. I wanted a fit and healthy body.

Soon my Power 90 DVDs and resistance bands arrived and I began the program at 263 pounds. I did the program faithfully every day. I also adjusted my diet to fit with Michi's Ladder. At the end of 90 days, I had lost 20 pounds and was back down to 243 pounds. Also I had lost a lot of inches and I could see a definite change in my body when looking in the mirror. This was after only 90 days, and I was inspired to go on from there.

I completed the Slim in 6 and Slim Series programs and lost another 20 pounds. I also trimmed more inches off my body. I recently completed P90X Extreme Fitness on August 12, 2005, and I am now down to 209 pounds and approximately 12% body fat. When I started Power 90, I was at 32% body fat! I thought I was doing well because I had already lost a total of 80 pounds, but now I am feeling really fit and healthy. I can't believe the difference in my "before" and "after" photos. I look like those people on TV! It's all thanks to Beachbody and a little hard work. I am still so amazed at what I've accomplished with Beachbody and home fitness. I am now eating right and craving exercise. I love my daily workouts. Simply amazing!

I think one of the biggest changes is in my ability to do my job as a police officer more safely and effectively. People really treat the cop who's in shape differently than the guy who is 100+ pounds overweight trying to do the same job. I challenge any police officer with a fitness problem to give Beachbody a try. Give them just 90 days of your life, and you will be so amazed at the changes you will see. It's worth it in so many respects . . . for you, your family, and your beat partners. It doesn't matter what level you are at now. It matters that you start today!

I can't thank Beachbody enough for giving me the tools I needed to be inspired to get healthy and fit. Through Beachbody, I have learned that exercise is a fun and necessary part of health and fitness. I have found an effective way to easily stay in shape for the rest of my life. I will never again be the unhealthy person I was before . . . ever! Thank you, Beachbody, from the bottom of my heart. I feel like I am a Success Story, and I owe that success to all of you.
