Keith says seeing his daughter in a Beachbody infomercial was the kick he needed to get into shape.
He hadn’t seen his daughter Kailin in more than 12 years. Then he saw her in the last place he’d expect: on TV, talking about her radical weight-loss transformation in a Beachbody infomercial for Body Beast.
Shortly after seeing Kailin on TV, Keith ordered Body Beast with two goals in mind: to better himself and to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
At 54, Keith says his body wasn’t functioning the same way it had during his 13 years in the Marine Corps. His snug size 36 pants had long since indicated it might be time to make a change in his lifestyle, but it was seeing his daughter on TV that made him commit.
“Seeing her on TV, and in such great shape, kicked me into gear to lose weight, get physically fit again, and maybe create some common ground with my girl,” Keith says. “I figured that maybe if I was able to connect with her about something she loves we could at least talk, text, email. I was looking for anything to get us together.
Keith’s initial health goals were to lose weight, regain muscle tone, and feel good about his body again.
One focus for this father and daughter who became his coach was revamping his eating habits. So he began adding a daily serving of Shakeology.
With hard work and commitment, Keith was able to achieve both of his goals.
“After three months of the program, I lost 43 pounds and had the six-pack I had in high school,” he says. And even more importantly, he was able to reconnect with his daughter, even meeting her in person for the first time in more than a decade.
