Chris’s P90X Transformation Story: “My name is Chris and in October of 2009 I turned 29 years old in the worst shape of my life! I was overweight, tired, weak, and had little respect for my body. I ate horribly, lived a sedentary lifestyle and had no intentions of changing that lifestyle. I was embarrassed by how I looked and never felt good about myself, but was too lazy to do anything about it. With heart disease prominent in my family I knew I needed to do something. I never got to meet one of my grandfathers because he died before I was born due to a heart attack. I dealt with Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy so on top of having no energy due to being out of shape and overweight… I was ALWAYS tired. You could pretty much consider me a walking zombie. I often had to take naps in my car during my breaks at work because I could not stay awake. There were days that I would fall asleep at stoplights on the way home from work! When I was a teen I had fallen asleep at the wheel and crashed into a tree. I was very blessed to have survived that. I could not let that happen again leaving my wife and daughter without a husband and father… I needed to do SOMETHING!
Some friends of ours kept posting on Facebook about their P90X journey. It got me wondering, “What the heck is P90X??” I started doing research on it and decided it was going to be a little too intense for my wife and I to start with first. I wanted to start with something a little easier so I would be encouraged to keep going and not get scared after the first few days, so we chose the older, less intense program, Power 90! Until that day I had no intention of getting healthy or to get in shape. It was an impulse buy. I surprised my wife and told her what I bought and her immediate thought was “Crap… we spent money on this… now we HAVE to do it!” LOL. This by far was the best impulse purchase we have ever made!
By the end of the first week of I had lost 10 pounds and my energy and stamina increased dramatically! This was the motivation I needed to keep pushing “PLAY” for the rest of the 90 days. Once my wife and I completed Power 90 with amazing results we moved on to P90X with confidence! The results from P90X were AMAZING! With 3 months of Power 90 and 3 months of P90X I lost 61 pounds (230# to 168#) and 31.75 inches and dropped my body fat percentage from 30.3% to 8%! Losing all that weight cured my Sleep Apnea and Shakeology has helped me overcome my Narcolepsy with all the energy it gives me! I no longer take any medication! Everyday I am amazed with my new fitness and strength capabilities. I am more flexible and can do things I have never been able to do before. My physique is something I never could have imagined. It is hard to imagine that just in a mere 6 months of commitment I was able to go from obese to ripped. It is simply incredible! I am now 30 years old and am in the BEST shape of my life!”
