Marvin Williams gained two lbs. and got ripped in 90 days with Body Beast. He entered his results into the Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for July 24th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a construction worker and my job keeps me active. So before I started program, I thought I was in okay shape. After my wife became pregnant, I gained some unwanted weight. After my daughter was born, I knew I wanted to be a healthy example and her “superhero daddy,” so I ordered Body Beast.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
A combination of wanting to be youthful and vibrant for my daughter, with also not liking the fact that my stomach stuck out more than my chest. The more my body fat went up, the more my energy went down. That was enough for me to start working out.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced before starting the program was making time to exercise. I was worried about waking up in the middle of the night with a new baby, then having to go to work all day, only to come home to have to work some more. But with the help of my awesome Coach, Jen Stinson, I stayed motivated to complete the program. I continue to get support from Team Beachbody and look forward to giving support as I recently signed on as a Coach myself. I know I didn’t lose 100 lbs.; however, I did meet and exceed my personal goals. With that said, I hope this testimonial leaves someone touched, moved, and inspired.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I chose to do Body Beast, and I particularly liked that we had fun while doing it!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I absolutely met and exceeded my goals. I gained 2 pounds overall. I’m most proud that my body fat went from 20 percent to 14 percent, and my shirts fit better on me now.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since completing the program, I’m motivated to keep going. I’ve made some friends along the way, and I’ve taken up a new sport. Since being in a Group with my Coach and other people motivated by fitness, I started training for obstacle course racing.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
We supported each other by posting our workouts and pictures. I like that it was judgement-free.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Jen Stinson is a phenomenal Coach. She gave me advice and tips. We laughed, cried, cursed, but most importantly we didn’t give up and we got amazing results. I’m glad I met her.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, or digestion/regularity?
The Beachbody supplement Activit gave me energy. I just recently ordered Shakeology so I’ll let you know how I like it.
