I got connected with Roxy and Team Thunder through one of the other coaches in the group. I tried a Beachbody program (T25) in early 2015, and lost a few pounds but didn't stick with it. Fast forward to November 2015 and I had gained just about everything back. I was not happy with how I felt and how my clothes fit. I finally really had to own up to the fact that I was not just a little overweight and I needed to make some lifestyle changes. I did a couple of rounds of 21 day fix and then Roxy started a Team Thunder challenge for the new program Hammer and Chisel.
I didn't think I was ready . . . I mean I was soooo out of shape, but Roxy was very encouraging, so I gave it a try. I was hooked. I found that I love workouts that involve weights.
Roxy ran various challenges in the group that pushed my comfort zone (like sharing videos of myself on FaceBook) and really helped me to grow. She even took the time to develop customized meal plans for those of us in challenges to help us get the best results. Her commitment to helping those in the group is absolutely apparent.
In the summer of 2016, I committed to her Body Beast challenge. This one challenged my thinking because I had always been on low calorie meal plans (1200-1400 calories) trying to lose weight. On this one, I had to eat (2200 calories) to build muscle. I saw great results with the program and have been doing it since.
Most recently I had foot surgery and wasn't able to do some of the moves in the workouts. Roxy was there to offer alternatives.
I can't say enough great things about Roxy, her fellow coaches, and Team Thunder. Without a doubt, I would not have been as successful without Roxy and the team. I remain excited to continue my healthy lifestyle with them.
