Everyday in our Facebook motivational groups I get tagged a handful of times. While scanning my notifications I saw one from Mohamed, “My Transformation During INSANITY Pictures! I went from 265 Pounds (120 KG) to 215 Pounds (97 KG)! LOST 50 POUNDS ! Thank You Shaun T, Thank You Guys, Thank You Jeff Lennon.” I immediately clicked on the notification and was floored by Mohamed’s results. I was almost certain but I just had to confirm that these amazing results were only from 1 round and they are! 63 Days of Insanity and 50lbs lost. Mohamed looks like an entirely NEW man!
Helping and inspiring people to have transformations like this are why I’m a coach! Mohamed has inspired me and put a bounce in step all week from the pride I have from him being on OUR Team. I hope Mohamed’s pictures and stories can inspire many more people!
Mohamed’s story in his own words:
That always made me less confident in myself but that wasn’t the only thing, I had like the WORST level of fitness over.
Barely running for 10 seconds and when I tried to tie my shoes, I always get up trying to catch a breath.
It was not pretty, so I decided to change.
I saw the INSANITY infomercial at YouTube, then I tried to purchase it only to find that the shipping was only allowed to US and Canada, so I jumped through hoops convincing my uncle (who lives in America) to buy it for me then ship to Egypt.
So I bought INSANITY and didn’t do it!
That’s right! I always start the first week (my best accomplishment was two and half week) then I quit over and over again.
Then came a moment of self-realization to myself, I keep thinking, I can’t be like that, I am still young and got all the live ahead of me and I want to ENJOY it big time and that won’t happen as long as I am overweight!
THEN THE JOURNEY STARTED
I started following the nutrition plan and doing the workouts (never missed a workout) and BRINGING IT. One of the ways to make sure that I dug deeper that I get a family member to watch me so he/she can make sure that I am doing my best and if there wasn’t anyone available, I would deeply immerse myself and imagine that I am at the insanity basketball court and that Shaun T is looking at me every time he looks to the Camera.
They were hard at the first two weeks, then things became easier one step at a time. I kept improving at my fit-test and things were going great.
Then at the end of the first month, I went to play soccer with my friends and boy! I was the fittest one of them, running the whole match, stretching my muscles to the max and being a powerhouse for an entire hour and a half! at that point, I realized that I am starting to enjoy life the way I want it.
Then came the second month which was deadly to me! the first three weeks were so hard but I KEPT pushing it because every time I remember this soccer match and how my shape is changing in the mirror, I know that those 63 days will keep me happy for the entire lifetime I have.
Finally, the journey ended as the fourth weeks of the second month came to an end (which I smashed it btw) I went from 265 pounds (120 kg) to 215 pounds (97 KG)! I lost 50 pounds in sixty days thanks to INSANITY.
There is no impossible, just bring it and have faith.
Thank You Mohamed! I can’t wait to see what you can do with Asylum!
