Tina G. is a New York police officer who decided to take the Insanity Challenge. She had mind blowing results and lost over 17 lbs and 9 1/2 inches off of her entire body. Here is what she had to say about it!
Before using Beachbody’s products my life was one of a not so active individual who worked over night shifts and ate accordingly. Fast food restaurants became my breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snack. It was horrible. I was sleeping 10 to 12 hours a day and waking up with zero energy. One would think that after sleeping that long you could run a marathon right? Well, not me, and I felt myself falling deeper and deeper into a hole that only became that much harder to crawl out of. I felt hopeless, worthless and past the point of no return. My self-esteem continued to wither away, and the more I harped on it and gained this full time feeling of sadness and hurt, the more I turned to food as my addiction for comfort.
As a Law Enforcement Officer, my results affected my job tremendously. Statistics suggest that police officers have increased risk of premature death and may be more vulnerable to certain diseases, thus increasing the importance of implementing a fitness routine and living a healthy lifestyle. The results that I have acquired from Beachbody products are officer confidence, morale, less work related injuries, reduced amount of sick time used and most importantly of all the ability to handle oneself in a violent confrontation.
There is a strong relationship between physical fitness and police officers performing at their optimal levels, on and off the streets. I have become a spokesperson at work of Beachbody products by establishing relationships with my fellow colleagues along with recommendations for implementing fitness standards and Beachbody programs for today’s law enforcement officers. The best feeling in the world is being able to get geared up for work. What does this mean, one may ask? Bending over to tie my strings on my boots without breathing heavy, and without feeling like I have a 20 pound medicine ball pushing against my chest for the entire work night. Even something as simple as being able to sit in a patrol vehicle with my gun belt on and not feel uncomfortable because I cannot move and I feel so bloated in uniform that I want to explode. Remember, besides our own body weight, our equipment adds about 20 pounds total- so you get my drift.
Beachbody transformed not only my body, but my mind. I know and can proudly say that Beachbody products completely transform your life in a short amount of time. In today’s society of one of the fastest growing social problem, Global Obesity, I would like to make a difference and give everyone I come in contact with to have a chance of being in the best shape of their lives. The quickest, most helpful and cost effective way is to continue to promote Beachbody products. It is as simple as that. No gimmicks, no excuses!!
My purpose is to establish the wellness culture in my organization as well as others I may come in contact with, making officers want to participate instead of forcing them to. Constantly adhering to a healthy lifestyle and behavior will pay great dividends and I expose this message daily. Having a complete, on-going physical fitness program (i.e. Beachbody) in place assures that individuals from all occupations and walks of life will be more productive, while reducing injuries, absenteeism and diseases.
Thank you with all my heart for the dedication and support you have all shown me. It has helped me grow not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I have met so many wonderful people through this company and absolutely LOVE the positivity of this Team and Coaches around the world. I want to continue to help inspire others to understand that with the right tools and just BELIEVING in yourself there is no limit to what you can do.
Thank you Tina for all that you do to inspire a fit and healthy lifestyle within our law enforcement community!
