My transformation story starts with tears on Christmas morning 2007. How did I end up crying on Christmas? As an athlete in high school and college I was always trim and in shape. Then life marched on and my exercise stopped and my weight slowing began to rise. In 2005, my parents moved from down the road to out of state, and shortly after my best friend followed. I wasn’t alone, but I had a huge hole in my heart, and apparently, an equally large hole for a mouth. I began a quest for the perfect cheeseburger, onion and chocolate shake combo. It was a crusade of epic proportions…in every sense of the word. My weight went from 185 to 271. My largest pants cut into my waist so painfully that I unbuttoned or took them off whenever possible. I did not know myself in the mirror. My wife…tolerated me. On that Christmas morning she gave me tickets to go see my parents and best friend, who strangely live only 90 minutes from each other. I knew then I had been filling a void in my heart, and my mouth. I HAD to change. I began in mid-January by watching what I ate, not drinking as much beer and walking. I wasn’t trying hard, but was conscience of the effort. In late March I was down to 261. In April, I joined a local “no frills” gym and weighed 253. It was time to get serious and I was on my way. I had goals and a 40th birthday on the horizon. In May, I was 234 and for a birthday gift to myself I bought P90X. Those damn commercials haunted me in my sleep, and I finally gave in. I ended up starting the program five months after I bought it. Does any of this sound familiar? Along with the X, I got an angel, my coach Monica Ward. She understood that I could not commit. I did not give up though. I continued to workout, walk and even run throughout the summer. I was getting in shape so I could really get in shape! I had hit a plateau at the end of the summer and knew it was time to decide, commit and succeed. I did the 90 days and was amazed with my results. I went from 30+% body fat to 19% body fat and I am down to 214 lbs. I traded my keg for a six-pack. I have muscles that I haven’t seen in 20 years. Actually, I have more muscles than ever.  I am motivated and inspired to continue and share my good fortune with everyone who asks me, “Wow, what have you been doing?” I am still transforming. I owe it to myself, my wife, my coach, and now my students. If I can do this, so can you!

I have always been thin, but not because I’m fit. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at the age of 13, and spent years with a very restricted diet, lots of digestive upset, and a few hospitalizations. I have spent most of my life knowing where all the public bathrooms are, having to stay away from many of the foods and drinks I love, and deal with pain on a regular basis. So what’s healthy for most people really tears me up.

To top it all off, I also have chronic pain related to a back surgery many years ago. Because of this, high impact exercise is out of the question for me. I can do it, but I always suffer afterwards.

Thanks to Beachbody, their super food shake called Shakeology and their low to no impact modifications in their workout programs, I can be thin AND fit, and my digestion has dramatically improved as well. Although I am almost 50 now, I feel younger and healthier than I have in years. I am so grateful to Beachbody and my coach for keeping me on track and helping me find ways to get and stay healthy!

Watch the video below that I made for a Shakeology challenge group that gives more info about Shakeology and why I love it.


We Love Our Customers…and they love us too!

While Bart and I live no where near each other (CA & TX), he has been an instrumental source of encouragement, motivation and inspiration as I’ve changed the direction of my life. It started as a chance meeting on the 4th of July some 3 1/2 years ago about getting into shape and doing P90X workouts. Bart became my Beachbody coach that night and he’s been helping me find success ever since. From texts, to emails, to phone calls Bart has been the one person that has motivated me to increase my level of fitness. When I stumble, he’s there to pick me up, when I have an accomplishment he’s there to celebrate it. It’s gone beyond just fitness, he’s lead me to authors about personal development that have reshaped my philosophy about life, my career, my family. I’m very thankful that Bart and I have become friends, without him I would not have found the path to becoming a better more successful person. Chris DeStefano

Bartly became my coach a couple of years ago and he has been a huge source of encouragement and good advice for me. I already knew that I liked Beachbody videos and products but his coaching took it to a whole new level for me. He addressed my questions, held me accountable, and connected me with resources such as online challenge groups and close connections to the amazing Shaun T . Bartly and Courtney’s videos are especially inspiring on a personal level beyond just health and fitness. They truly want everyone to find personal and professional success. Liz Schwartz
