My name is Matthew and I am a 32 father of 4. I am the Network Administrator for 2 companies in North Alabama. My kids are 8,6,5,& 1 which makes for a very active life. It was the fact that I was not being active with my family and watching them play without me that made me want to make a change.

My name is Matthew and I am a 32 father of 4. I am the Network Administrator for 2 companies in North Alabama. My kids are 8,6,5,& 1 which makes for a very active life. It was the fact that I was not being active with my family and watching them play without me that made me want to make a change.

When I was growing up I was always the shorter skinny kid. I was always moving by playing outside, swimming at the YMCA, or playing sports. I never had a problem with weight until I graduated college. I did not add all the weight overnight but it was a slow adding of pounds the sneaked up on me. When I started college I weighed 130lbs and was 5'10". In 2006 I had grown a few inches in height but also everywhere else. I topped the scale at 220lbs and it was time for a change. I made this lifechange for my future health since I have heart disease and Type 2 diabetes on both sides of my family. I wanted to make sure that I am healthy but also that I pass good eating and fitness to my kids.
I know have more energy and I am able to keep up with my young kids with energy to spare. I recently went back for blood work and all my numbers are in the normal range. I dropped my cholesterol by 38 points and my Blood Pressure went from 130/95 to 106/52. These are the numbers knew I needed to achieve and thats to Beachbody and the hard work I had to put in I have achieved my goals. How are you affecting you families health? I can help just ask me how!

Thank you for your feedback! I plan on doing one round of Insanity straight through, then coming up with a hybrid plan to incorporate running back in. I miss running, but Insanity is a lot of fun!
