The last two years of my life have been completely transformed by Beachbody. I literally went from computer consultant, to fitness fanatic. 230 pounds, to 165 pounds. Programmer, to Insanity Certified Instructor. I did this not because I didn't love what I did, but because I needed to save my life. This year, I became the three time Canadian Top Beachbody Coach, and Beachbody's Top Male Coach. I decided to write myself a letter, so I could look back years from now, and have a strong stepping stone to build from should my life change, which it always does.
An Open Letter To Yourself – From 35 Year Old Miguel Carrasco
Two and a half years ago, you were lying in a hospital bed, looking up at a ceiling. You turned your head, the blood pressure was 195/140. you were 230 pounds and in the worst shape of your life.
You could have decided in that moment to give up. To just take the pills… leading to very likely more complications, obesity for life, type two diabetes, and more sickness.
You went home… you cried, you slept for days with your kids crying.. wondering how you let it get so bad… you wanted to give up.
Instead, you told yourself one thing “THIS IS NOT HOW THIS STORY WILL END MIGUEL! You my friend, are FIGHTER unlike the world has ever seen. You NEVER GIVE UP”
You made changes in the way you ate, you started to workout at home, and went on to lose over 80 pounds.
You started to share your story with others. Many of your friends on facebook saw it all unfold before their very eyes.
You turned 35 in 2015. You are in THE BEST shape of your entire life. You finished the year as the TOP Male Coach in Beachbody a company with 238,000 coaches! The Top Coach in Canada for three years in a row! Beachbody decided to name you a Coach Advisory Board member, one of the highest honors that can be given to a coach. You have worked out with Tony Horton, Shaun T, Chalene Johnson, Autumn Calabrese. You are an Insanity Certified Instructor.
Miguel, you rebooted your life. You saved it. And you went on to save the lives of tens of thousands. Your big dream right now, is to help 100,000,000 people before you breath your last breath.
You can do anything my friend. Never give up on yourself. Never give up on that dream. No matter how hard life will surely get. Never give up on yourself. You have proven, that ANYTHING is possible.
Live with passion and dream the extreme.
