Tony F. won $500 with P90X2
Tony and I have been friends now for almost 2 years. We actually started and went through the P90X2 program together for the first time and that’s where our friendship developed. However, he live on the West coast and of course I am in the Midwest so most of our interactions occur either online or via phone calls. We have met on a couple of occasions and it is always a good time catching up with Tony. While I am not Tony’s coach, Tony himself is a Team Beachbody coach, just like me!

He got awesome results with P90X2 and he recently won the daily Beachbody Challenge, which netted him a $500 prize. Congrats my friend!
Here is Tony’s story:
“I’m a former professional basketball player who had let myself go while recuperating from knee surgery years ago. To hide my weight gain I’d wear baggy clothes, but even then, I never felt comfortable at the beach or in front of my former teammates. And while I knew I was out of shape, I just never realized HOW fat I’d become until a parent whose kid I was training in basketball said to me: “Hey man, you’re looking big. And not the good kind of big.” After practice I went home and immediately bought P90X—and 90 days later I was ripped. But two years later my knee buckled while playing ball in Croatia and I realized I was right back where I started—OUT OF SHAPE!
Tired of living in extremes, I decided to ditch my excuses, clean up my diet, get in shape, and this time, STAY IN SHAPE! So I did INSANITY: THE ASYLUM followed by P90X2, and in 6 short months I got in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE! At 34 years old I was doing 180- and reverse slam-dunks—something I hadn’t done since high school. Even when I was playing professionally overseas, I didn’t have this type of athleticism. I only wish these programs were around when I was still playing ball. Because while I was a very good player in my day, if I had this kind of training back then, I would have been GREAT.
I chose Asylum and P90X2 because of their focus on increasing athleticism. The workouts looked like so much fun, and in addition to getting in great shape and getting ripped, I could relive my “glory days” and feel like an athlete again. Everyday I was doing something new, something challenging, and just when I needed a change…BOOM—the program shifted gears and kicked my butt! The workouts pushed me to the limit and took me beyond my comfort zone, and I got in the best shape of my life.
The thing I like best about Beachbody’s workouts is that I could do them any time I wanted, I could train in under an hour, and I had a personal trainer on my TV telling me exactly what to do every step of the way! Plus, because I work out at home, I don’t waste 2 to 3 hours a day at the gym, like I used to, talking to people.
I also drank Shakeology and Results and Recovery throughout my Challenge and not once did I get sick—which is rare for me. And in six short months I lost 14 lbs., dropped down to 8% body fat, sculpted 6-pack abs, and could do slam-dunking reverse 180’s while jumping over things. It’s truly amazing that at my age I improved my athleticism, coordination, and overall fitness level. I completed P90X2 on April 15th (my 34th birthday) walked into 24 Hour Fitness—where I used to “workout”—and silenced the gym with my dunking acrobatics.
Since beginning this journey last year my life has changed in so many ways. I’m now a Beachbody Coach and am paying it forward, helping family and friends get their lives back! With Beachbody on my side, I’ll never again let myself slide because I’ve gotten rid of ALL the excuses. Thank you, Beachbody, for saving me.”
