My name is Michael F. and I am thirty-three years young. I use the word young because that is exactly how I feel again thanks to Tony Horton and the fitness program Power 90. Power 90 has changed the way I look, feel, and think.
Allow me to briefly describe my life before Power 90. I have always loved to eat. When I was much younger I could pretty much eat anything I wanted and I would stay "skinny." I thought life was great because I would never change, right? WRONG! Astonishingly, something changes as you get older, and yet, you continue to eat like a teenager! Even more amazingly, those changes seem to increase exponentially after a few years of marriage and a couple of children. Despite my changing physical appearance, I was the king of poor excuses as to why I ate as much and as often as I did. I also had the uncanny ability to rationalize my poor diet by saying "I'll burn it off by running on the treadmill a couple days this week."
A routine physical at the doctor's office was the rude awakening that I desperately needed. I weighed in at a very unhealthy 223 pounds. I knew that if I didn't make some serious physical changes, then I would be at great risk for adult onset type 2 diabetes. Diabetes runs in my family's genes. There was no rationalizing my way out of this one! I needed help and I needed it quick. As luck would have it, I found the solution to my problem a few days later.
At the hospital where I work, I overheard an emergency room doctor talking about this "incredible" fitness program that he had been doing called Power 90. Judging by the fantastic shape this doctor was in, and his conviction in this program, I was intrigued and convinced that it could be just the thing that could help me. Little did I know at that time that this program would completely change my life for the better!
I will be completely honest in saying that Power 90 requires complete, unwavering dedication and commitment. When I started the program, I never once said to myself, "I wonder if this will really work for me" or "is it really worth all this effort and time?" If anyone who is reading this is wondering "will this really work for me?" please listen to my words. Power 90 is a perfectly organized program, with an "in-home personal trainer." The bottom line is this: if you follow Tony Horton's workouts six days a week and if you faithfully choose foods from Michi's Ladder for the required 90 days, YOU WILL GET INCREDIBLE RESULTS! The day my "after" pictures were taken, I weighed in at an amazing 174 pounds.
I am living proof that it is absolutely worth every second spent, every drop of sweat, every dessert turned down, etc (I now go by the philosophy that nothing tastes as good as it feels to be in great shape!)
I wake up each morning with a renewed sense of vigor for life. I have an overabundance of energy (if you don't believe me, just ask my wife and children.) And most importantly, now that I feel this great, I don't EVER want to go back to the way I was before Power 90. The beauty of the program is that I am now trained to exercise appropriately and to eat healthy for life. I don't have to change a thing!
The motto is Decide. Commit. Succeed. I hereby invite anyone who has read my story to make a personal decision today. I know that if you do decide and commit yourself to Power 90, you will succeed and you will experience wonderful lifelong changes. I want to close by saying thank you Tony Horton and thank you to Beachbody. I now look forward to a long and healthy life!
P.S. Bring on P90X!!!
