Nicole had grown up sitting out during gym class, and was later diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and high cholesterol. She became unhappy with herself and lived in constant discomfort! When a friend introduced her to Shakeology, Brazil Butt Lift and P90X, she transformed her whole life. Read more about her story below!
I was very depressed and it was just uncomfortable to be me. Always being in pain was my life. I had been diagnosed with IBS after having issues since I was 16, and also diagnosed with high cholesterol. I had previously worked in highly physical jobs, but after I started my office job, I became very unhealthy. There were days I would spend doubled over with pain. Then I gained 30 lbs. I was miserable.
I had known I needed to make changes and I even knew what they were, but I just didn't do it. Being introduced to Shakeology and Beachbody gave me the support and inspiration to make the changes - I already knew what I needed to do! Shakeology was groundbreaking for my journey. I know that I can count on it to be there when I need a good meal and the energy and digestive help was phenomenal! The coaches I was introduced to after joining up were phenomenal!Motivation, support, information and that extra PUSH was exactly what I needed!
Brazil Butt Lift looked like fun, and it WAS! I enjoyed working out and learning new moves and gaining coordination! The high-energy beat and moves that are paired with step by step instructions was the perfect combination. My favorite workout is Bum Bum, just because it was very challenging at first, however I stuck with it and got all the moves down!!I chose Brazil Butt Lift first because I thought it looked fun and easy to follow, then I joined a P90X challenge group. I have come back to BBL several times because it is so enjoyable and effective!
Dropping over 30 lbs and two full dress sizes is just amazing on top of feeling healthy. I am more energized, and ready to challenge myself in all areas of life. I had issues as a little girl with my muscle and bone growth that resulted in me sitting out of gym class quite a bit. That stuck with me and I grew up thinking I was not "athletic." I have finally broken that mold and am teaching myself to run. The best part? I'm actually enjoying it!
I have since completed another round of BBL and still use it for a “fun” workout. BBL taught me working out could actually be FUN, and P90X showed me I COULD be an athlete! I am so thankful for all of these Beachbody programs; they are my way of life now! Shakeology and my fitness programs have helped my IBS and my overall cholesterol dropped more than 20 points.
I may have only lost 30 pounds, but I've dropped 1 million pounds of dead weight off my mind!
