Beachbody Challenge Grand Prize Champions
Catreen Dow lost 156 lbs in 16 months!*
“I was almost 300 pounds when I had a stroke, and the doctors told me that I had to change my lifestyle.† If I didn’t, I was probably going to die and would not be around for my two beautiful daughters.
[Years later] I started eating healthy and following Beachbody programs, and it has literally changed my life forever.
This journey has been so much more than just ‘weight loss’ for me. I feel like I’m finally myself! I feel 100% more confident. This has given me my life back.
I love the strength I have gained in both body and mind. I am able to play with my kids and they are able to have the active, healthy mother they deserve. I will forever continue this lifestyle. I can’t wait to see the things I will achieve.”
Catreen’s favorite fitness programs: 21 Day Fix, INSANITY MAX: 30, Country Heat, 80 Day Obsession, LIIFT4, and #MBF.
Matthew Wyatt lost 142 lbs in 10 months!*
“I struggled to keep up with my four kids. I felt I was failing as a father and as a husband.
I wanted to change, but after past failures, I believed change was impossible.
A friend, who had a lifelong struggle [with weight] like my own … introduced me to his Coach, Carmen [O’Quinn]. She was living proof that change is possible.
I knew that if I would just trust her, show up, commit to the program, and see it through, I would get results, too.
[10 months later,] I am half the man I used to be, but I’ve never felt more whole. I am stronger than I have ever been in my adult life.
My quality of life has transformed immeasurably since I started. I am a better, more present father and husband. My confidence and self-respect have soared.
When you change this much physically, it pours into every area of your life. The seemingly impossible becomes possible and nothing feels beyond your reach.
It may all sound a bit dramatic, but the change is that drastic. I am a different person, and I am thankful.”
Matthew’s favorite fitness programs: Morning Meltdown 100, LIIFT4, P90X3, #MBF, Country Heat, Let’s Get Up!, A Week Of Hard Labor
Matthew’s nutrition plan: Portion Fix
The Beachbody Challenge
The Beachbody Challenge is a transformation contest that rewards people for achieving their goals and leading healthy, fulfilling lives.
“We’re ‘challenging’ people to give Beachbody an honest try, and see what this proven system of fitness, nutrition, and support can do.” says Arthur Maier, Sr. Director of the contest. “If you truly commit to a program and give it your best effort, while documenting your results over time with photos and measurements, we know that you’ll see and feel the difference! The prizes that we offer — from the free gifts to the big cash prizes — are an additional incentive for everyone to go on that journey.”
Everyone who enters their transformation story into the Beachbody Challenge contest wins a free gift (like a shirt) as a reward,** and approximately 35,000 contestants claimed that prize over the last year.
In addition to the free gift, the top 96 most inspirational transformation stories of the year each win $500 USD, and the top 8 “Finalists” receive special recognition at Team Beachbody’s annual Coach Summit event and big cash prizes — from $15,000 up to the grand prize of $100,000!
