Our P90X Transformation

My husband Greg and I have known each other since we were 9 years old.  Isn’t that crazy? We moved into the same neighborhood the same year and Greg soon became a family friend and was always hanging out with my brothers. I remember playing all sorts of games with him and the other kids in the neighborhood like kickball, wiffle ball and flashlight freeze tag. But little did I know that the boy down the street would end up being the man that I would marry almost 20 years later and that the business that we would have together would have all started with our p90x transformation 😉

Our P90X Transformation - Greg and Christine Plaskett

Fast forward to 1990 and everything changed. I came home from college one night and went roller skating with my older brother and Greg was there.  He skated by me wearing white jeans dancing around on his skates.  Can you believe I remember what he was wearing? LOL  I also remember thinking, “Who is this handsome guy? When did he grow up?!”   That winter after I came from college we started dating.   We would to to the movies, amusement parks, skiing, ice skating, mountain biking and so much more.  We had a lot of fun together.  

7 years later he asked me to marry him.  It was Thanksgiving morning and I was  in my pajamas with my hair was up in a pony tail.  He brought me breakfast in bed and there was a ring in a covered sugar bowl.  So sweet!  I remember thinking….”I”m supposed to look beautiful!  Then quickly thought if he loves me in PJs and a pony tail….he truly loves me just the way I am 🙂  We were married in the Fall of October 1997.

19 years of marriage and two children later, we are now both full-time Entrepreneurs working from home. Because of our 25+ years of experience in corporate, retail and entrepreneurship, we’ve been able to build an incredible business together over the last 5 years helping others become physically and financially fit. It’s truly amazing to have the freedom that we have…

But it wasn’t always this way. 

Before the Beachbody Coaching Opportunity was shared with us, we were working 50+ hours per week. Yes, the standard rat race that most parents live. We had our two kids in day care and were stressed out literally all the time. 

And then the unexpected happened, and Greg was let go from his corporate job. And suddenly, we had to figure out how to support our family on one income. We had absolutely no idea how we were going to make it work. 

Those next few years came with a ton of ups and downs, frustrations, fears and everything else that comes with the territory of such a huge financial strain. But eventually, we started a Landscaping business and Greg was mowing 45 lawns each week during the warmer months. 

But as winter started to approach and fall cleanups were complete, the business went on hold. We live in New England, so the entire winter months are a no-go for landscaping 😉 

During this time, I continued to work at my full-time job while Greg stayed at home with the kids. At this point it was 2011, and we call this our “hibernation period” LOL And I think most of us can relate to that. It’s cold outside and all you want to do is stay in the house and eat warm goodies and watch movies…

But those hibernation periods have their downsides and before we knew it, we were out of shape and overweight. 

That is until one fitness program and opportunity entered our life that changed it forever. And for the better…

Our P90X Transformation story

We knew we were out of shape. And before it got too out of hand, we decided we were ready to make a change.  We tried working out at home with a treadmill and a few weights.  And…we didn’t have much success.   We both had gym memberships and could never get there being so busy and not wanting to leave the house in the cold.  It gets really cold here in New England during the winter months.  One day, a friend asked if we ever tried P90X.   We hadn’t but had certainly heard of it.    His question started to pique our interest.

One night we were looking on the internet for P90X Transformation videos. We hunted and scoured the internet to find people who got great results with the product—and found a ton.  Each of us would watch videos of transformations and before and after photos.  So many people were having so much success.   We ended up purchasing the program (on the payment plan because money was so tight) and had an amazing P90X transformation.

Greg lost 21 lbs and I lost 15lbs. We were in the best shape of our lives. 

We were so impressed with our results over those 90 days that we started to share our results with others.

These were our results.  Incredible, right? 

(If you’re like us and want to see more before and afters for inspiration, check out the transformations from so many other team members on our T25 Before and After and other transformations page  )

We now had the P90x transformation that we obsessively looked at online and couldn’t be more excited.  

Results may vary. Exercise and proper diet are necessary to achieve and maintain weight loss and muscle definition. Consult your physician and follow all safety instructions before beginning any exercise program or using any supplement or meal replacement product.

Becoming Coaches

As we continued on our journey, people started reaching out to us because they were inspired by our results. Then, shortly after we achieved our P90X transformation, the Beachbody Coaching Opportunity was presented to us. 

I remember being at work one day when Greg called me.   He said a friend from high school reached out to him and congratulated us on our results and asked if we knew that there was a business opportunity that was tied to it.  We didn’t know.  I had a few questions of course, like how much to get started and how much to run the business each month.  It was so reasonable, especially compared to starting up our own landscaping company.  I said ‘Go for it! What’s the worst case scenario? We get healthier ;)’

We So we went for it…and it was the best decision we could have ever made.

P90X Transformation - greg and christine plaskettWe have met some really amazing people since becoming Coaches. We have helped many achieve their own P90x Transformation and transformations from many of the other Beachbody programs. The best part…is being able to pay it forward. We love getting messages thanking us for helping someone achieve their goals. It’s a great feeling and it makes you want to continue striving to be better every single day.

We really love helping people achieve their health and fitness goals, but our favorite part about being Coaches is helping people start their own Beachbody business. It has changed our lives in so many ways, and to be able to help someone else see the potential in what Team Beachbody can offer is so rewarding.

With this opportunity we were able to go from living on a single income struggling, to turning our love for health and fitness into a very successful home based business. And the best part? We’re both full-time, as as I was also let go from my corporate job, and now we have more time together as a family and helping others create a better life. It’s truly amazing what that P90X transformation did for us and so many others.
