My family is still in complete shock of the transformation I have gone through and my doctor is absolutely floored!

Kulia i ka nu'u. For those like Dallas Carter, who hails from Hawaii, these words, about the value of achievement, are words to live by.

At 335 pounds, Dallas seemed destined to follow in his family's footsteps by dying young. Like those who came before, he suffered from heart disease, diabetes and respiratory problems related to obesity. His doctor went so far as to tell him he wouldn't live to see his baby daughter grow up if he didn't do something drastic. So he started with Beachbody.

It wasn't easy, but he persevered, and day by day, pound by pound, Dallas began to change. First he lost 20 pounds, then 50 pounds, then 70, and it kept coming off. He started working out with P90X® along with One on One with Tony Horton, 10 Minute Trainer® and ChaLEAN Extreme®, and lost a total of 190 pounds. Now, his doctor talks about using Dallas to inspire others to do the same.

The literal translation of Kulia i ka nu'u is "strive to reach the summit." It is said that those who have this value continually pursue personal excellence. Just ask Dallas Carter, whose new motto is "Because now I can!"

I'm confident, inspired, determined, and in control of my physical and emotional well-being.

When it's time to kick it into gear, kick it up a notch and kick bad habits to the curb, people are relying on
Kristy McLean.

It wasn't long ago that Kristy weighed 235 pounds and suffered from sciatica and low energy. She loved food and loved enjoying time with friends and family, and though heavy, her overall physical health was OK. Her emotional health was another story. She felt huge and embarrassed. But she also knew that somewhere inside was a strong, confident, kick-butt person with amazing potential.

Kristy found Turbo Jam® and it was love at first kick. Soon she was starting her days at 5 am, packing a cooler so she could be sure to eat every three hours. Now she follows that by teaching a Turbo Kick class at 5:30 or by doing ChaLEAN Extreme®, Hip Hop Abs®, or P90X® in her garage. It's a new passion and a new career.

Kristy is a Beachbody Coach as well as a marketing consultant and a freelance fitness writer, and she proudly declared her recent 34th birthday party her best ever. Why? "No indulgent drinking or eating. Amazing!"

My daughters have the mother they deserve and my marriage is the best it has ever been!

Healthy is as healthy does, and lives. It's a philosophy many live by, especially Jocelyn Dworakowski, a big winner in Beachbody—because of Beachbody.

Jocelyn began her transformation when she was hit with a horrible realization: her daughters had no idea of what fun was. Jocelyn had long suffered from uncontrollable mood swings, was smoking a full pack of cigarettes each day, and had no energy. She had been diagnosed with under-active thyroid and had developed gestational diabetes during her second pregnancy, a condition that, along with her weight, put her at risk of developing type II diabetes.

She made a decision: get happy, get healthy, get fun! She started with Power 90®, Turbo Jam®, and P90X®, and changed her diet with help from Thin Kitchen on TeamBeachbody.com. She added the 10 Minute Trainer® and ChaLEAN Extreme®, minimized her thyroid symptoms and now shows no signs of type II diabetes.

She's become a Beachbody Coach, has bought a home, and is now having lots of healthy fun with her kids because now it's "easy to make healthy choices." Her $50,000 prize helps, too.

Without question, Beachbody has made me a better, stronger, more disciplined man.

Losing weight and getting fit saved the lives of Thomas Mygrant and his new brother-in-law.

Thomas had always been a big guy. Though only 5'7", he was husky as a child, a big man as an adult, and weighed 273 pounds when he got married. It was the summer of 2007, and his new bride loved him regardless of his girth and his constant fatigue. His brother-in-law attended the wedding, dying of end-stage kidney failure. Thomas applied to be a donor, but was told he'd have to lose 60 pounds in order to donate one of his kidneys. That was the wake-up call he needed.

Thomas started doing P90X®, One on One with Tony Horton and ChaLEAN Extreme® and soon became half the man he'd been, weight-wise. He is twice the man from a humanitarian standpoint. He inspires others to begin their own transformational journeys and has become a Beachbody Coach, a better
husband and a better brother-in-law. He's proud to have done it all the "Beachbody way".

A positively life-saving way.

I am so full of positive energy that I feel fantastic all the time!

Getting in shape can be challenging. Staying in shape after physical obstacles can be even more so. That's what happened to Dale Bramall.

It all started when he was in college, when Dale started to gain the weight that eventually had him tipping the scales at nearly 300 pounds. Emotionally crushed and with high blood pressure, he soon found himself 40 years old, married, with a new baby girl and a newly found dedication to shape up.

He started with Power 90®, and 120 days later, switched to P90X®. He lost 25 pounds and came in first in a local triathalon, competing against guys half his age. He ran a 5K in under 21 minutes and finished a marathon in under 2 hours. Even being hit by a car couldn't keep Dale down. Hospitalized with severe abrasions, contusions, head trauma and a broken foot, he was back to his Beachbody routine within three days.

Now, with his three kids watching, Dale Bramall is "ready for a pose-off with Tony Horton himself." Talk about a challenge!

I can get my daily chores done with ease and still have energy left over for all the other things I enjoy.

Change is an amazing thing. Just ask Audrey Nichelson, known on TeamBeachbody.com as Audrey J.

She had really let herself go, to the point where planning a trip with her husband left her crying in a bathing suit dressing room. None of the women's suits were big enough so she was forced to buy a pair of men's board shorts. The whole experience left her miserable, humiliated and ashamed. Though diagnosed with Graves' Disease, which causes muscle and bone deterioration, AudreyJ made a decision: Join the Team.

She started with Beachbody Power 90®, adding quality supplements and gradually more Beachbody programs. She gave up smoking, started eating healthy, and put her Graves' Disease into remission with proper medication.

Today, when Audrey looks at her before photos, she remarks: "I hope I never forget who she was and how she felt." Her journey from dressing room inconsolable to workout invincible is one she gladly shares as a Coach, along with her Grand Prize submission video of her—in a bikini!

I have more endurance and stamina, and love that I'm able to "Bring It "with my kids and P90X!

Age is a state of mind, according to Mary Crawford. At 61, she has a million dollar body and she feels just great about it.

Before starting with Power 90®, Mary suffered from Basal Joint Arthritis and chronic lower back pain. She was out of shape and always out of energy, both of which she simply chalked up to being old. But with her daughter's urging, Mary decided to try something she hadn't done before: work out. She logged into WOWY® and her transformation began.

Soon Mary added the Power 90 Masters Series, Power Half Hour®, 10 Minute Trainer® and Slim in 6®. She ate 5 small meals a day, and began doing things like working in her flower garden and twirling her grandchildren around the yard, things she never thought she'd be able to do again.

Now, Mary's transformation is a true family affair. She works out with her niece as well as her daughter. She also takes Beachbody Nutritionals and has stopped taking cortisone shots for her arthritis. She feels better than ever and looks great in her jeans. Her new motto at 63: Who you callin' old!?

Beachbody, P90X, Turbo Jam, ChaLEAN Extreme, the Beachbody nutritional products have brought the Warrior back to life.

Being a warrior is challenging, especially for Bill Schlotman, a Beachbody who suffered a horrible mountain biking accident in September 2007.

A carpenter and construction worker by trade, Bill had long been relatively fit and trim, even into his 50s, but a fall backward left him with two cervical neck fractures, a ruptured disk, bulging disks in his upper back and severe neck and shoulder ligament damage. He lost his job and his insurance wouldn't cover physical therapy. The warrior was done.

Or so he thought.

Bill's girlfriend (and now Coach) introduced him to Beachbody, and with Turbo Jam®, ChaLEAN Extreme®, P90X® plus Beachbody Nutritionals, he roared back. So much so that he also returned to mountain biking and regularly blows past everyone else on the trail.

Recently, Bill was asked to pose for a calendar. Shirtless. A woman who saw him remarked that she used to live in California and hadn't seen a "Beachbody in years." And he's 55!

The warrior rules again.
