Shawn’s P90X Video and Story

“My name is Shawn Swisher. I am 33 years old. I am a former high school three sport athlete and a former college football player. I have spent countless hours in the weight room. But as it normally does, Life happened. I married my wonderful wife of ten years and we have two beautiful daughters. Settling in to family life my workouts began to decline. Eating out became common. Beer and wings were staples in my diet. In November of 2010 my weight ballooned to 300 pounds for the first time in my life. My waist was 44 inches. I was tired. I was sleeping terribly.

I have been on blood pressure meds for the last 7 years. I was placed on cholesterol medication 2 years ago.

I lost my mom when she was only 31 years old. She was overweight and unhealthy. Here I was, 32 years old, 300 pounds, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, at risk for heart disease…WOW… I was allowing my worst nightmare to come true. I didn’t want to leave my kids fatherless like I was left motherless.

I had made it through 6 weeks of P90X at the beginning of 2010, but I let myself get lazy. I re-dedicated myself to P90X and eating clean on January 17th, 2011. I signed up with BeachBody and I requested to be coached by Wayne Wyatt after watching his transformation video. The support and motivation Coach Wayne and teamRIPPED provided is and always will be priceless to me!

I am now a P90X graduate and I am currently in the fourth week of Round 2 my P90X/Insanity hybrid. I haven’t missed a workout and I am eating super clean!!! I now weigh 238 pounds with 14.2 % body fat and I am continuing to drop weight. I have lost 8 inches on my waist so far.

My total cholesterol has gone from 191 to 158, my triglycerides have gone from 189 to 95, my good cholesterol rose from 35 to 44, my bad cholesterol went from 118 to 96, and my sugar went from 108 to 84!!! Thanks to my diet and SHAKEOLOGY!!! I am no longer on my cholesterol medication.

My energy is at an all time high!!! I am more passionate about my fitness then I have ever been!!! BeachBody, Tony Horton, and Wayne Wyatt have given me renewed hope!!! I will continue to BRING IT everyday!!!”
