Lance’s story in his own words:
“The most important thing about myself is that I am a husband and a father of two beautiful girls. My wife and daughters are everything to me. That’s one of the reasons I decided to get healthy. Growing up, and even in college, I never had any problems with my weight. Not sure what happened but after I got married my metabolism couldn’t keep up with my eating habits. As crazy as it sounds I really didn’t notice how overweight I was until I saw a photo of myself at the pool on a trip to Disney World
It took seeing that photo to realize I had let things get out of hand. The scale showed I weighed 267 pounds! How did I let this happen? I immediately started boxing when I returned home and in a year I had got down to 218 until I fractured my wrist. I started eating bad again but continued to workout and weighed 255 pounds when I ran my first 1/2 marathon in May of this year. I may have been able to run 13.1 miles but I was still obese and not happy with my fitness or my eating habits.
That’s when I saw P90X and Shakeology. It looked like everything I was looking for. Fitness, muscles, flexibility, and nutrition! But I was very skeptical of all the success stories. I decided to try P90X and supplement with Shakeology to see if it was for real. I even started a blog to keep myself motivated. I started P90X and Shakeology on September 27, 2010 and I am amazed by how good I feel and how much I have changed in such little time. The photos above show that Beachbody programs are for real and that anyone can dramatically change their health and fitness.
When I started I was borderline diabetic and my doctor was on the verge of putting me on high blood pressure medicine. I had back pain, knee pain, pain in the arches of my feet, pains in my Achilles, constant headaches and very little energy. I was considered morbidly obese and headed towards a heart attack.
I am living proof that poor health can be reversed. I went from 267 lbs to 205 lbs. 34% body fat to 11.96% currently. A 44″ waist to a 34″ waist! My blood pressure is now 118/62 and I have a resting heart rate of 53! I have no back or leg pains, ton of energy and I never get headaches anymore. Never in a million years did I think I could be healthier than I was in college but I am. Nothing tastes good enough to ever be as bad as I was. I feel amazing and there is no telling how many years I have added to my life. For those of you that say P90X or Shakeology is expensive I say really? Can you put a price tag on adding extra quality years to your life? I would pay 100x the amount Beachbody charges for these products!”
