In the summer of 2012, I suffered a pretty serious blood infection which had me bed-ridden for a week. I weighed 208 pounds and was unhealthy. Lying around for 7 days gave me a lot of time to think about myself and the direction I was going. I came out of that sickness with a new motivation to take control of my health and get fit once and for all.
A cursory internet search landed me on the MAX Workouts website and I was hooked immediately! I was never skeptical because I have tried many different workout programs, and what I read made total sense and was like nothing I had seen before. My most recent experience with working out had been using a Bowflex, but it does not even come close to Shin’s program.
I was so excited about everything I was reading that I completed my first 90 day program in the Fall of 2012, but I did NOT follow the diet. I did not get very good results, but still lost 12 pounds. Obviously, I was not taking full advantage of Shin’s program.
As a New Year’s resolution for 2013, I decided I would do the 90 day program again and follow the diet this time, and that is when the Transformation contest was announced. I was extremely motivated to complete the challenge.
I did the workouts exactly as written and followed the diet religiously…the results have been astounding!! It’s like the weight has been melting off. One of my biggest fears in life has always been taking my shirt off in public so I could swim with my 6 year old boy in the summer, and more times than not I would not swim with him because I was too afraid to go without a shirt.
Thanks to Shin’s program, I am now able to take my shirt off in public without fear or embarrassment, and feel very proud about the way I look for the first time in my life. Everyone I know cannot believe the change I have gone through, and the downside has been that this program has cost me a lot of money…I’ve had to have all of my pants taken in at the waist!!! (see enclosed photo of me with a pair of jeans I’ve had to throw out).
At 45 years old, I am in the best shape of my life and have seen amazing improvements in performing other sports like hockey and swimming. I am much stronger and have more endurance than when I was in my late teens/early twenties!
What I like most about the MAX Workouts program is that the workouts only take about 20 – 30 minutes and does not require thousands of dollars in gym memberships and/or equipment, only very basic equipment is required. I also love the fact that the workouts change every three weeks which means I never get bored and the body is continuously fooled into progressing all the time…there is never a plateau!
Finally, the workouts are all created by Shin and posted on the site. It takes away all the guesswork in trying to always come up with different workouts. All you have to do is execute…Shin does the rest!
Regardless of whether I win this contest, I am so thankful for Shin and what he has done for me and thousands more people across the world. Thank you Shin, please don’t ever stop doing what you’re doing.
