Beachbody Challenge Grand Prize Champion
Katrin Dow lost 156 pounds in 16 months!*
“When I had my stroke I weighed about 300 pounds and the doctors told me I needed to change my lifestyle.† If I didn’t, I would probably die and not have my two beautiful daughters by my side.
[Years later] I started eating healthy and following the Beachbody programs and it literally changed my life forever.
This journey has been much more than ‘weight loss’ for me. I feel like I’m finally myself! I feel 100% more confident. It gave me my life back.
I love the strength I have gained in both body and mind. I’m able to play with my kids and they’re able to get the active, healthy mom they deserve. I will continue this lifestyle forever. I can’t wait to see what I can achieve.”
Katrin’s Favorite Fitness Program: 21 Day Fix, Insanity Max: 30, Country Hit, 80 Day Obsession, LIFT4, and #MBF.

Matthew Watt lost 142 pounds in 10 months!*
“I struggled to keep up with my four children. I felt I had failed as a father and a husband.
I wanted to change, but after past failures, I believed that change was impossible.
A friend who had a lifelong struggle [with weight] Like my own … introduced me to her coach Carmen [O’Quinn]. He was living proof that change is possible.
I knew that if I just trusted Him, showed up, committed to the program and saw it through, I would get results too.
[10 months later,] I’m half the person I used to be, but I’ve never felt whole again. I am stronger than I have ever been in my adult life.
My quality of life has changed immeasurably since I started. I am a better, more present father and husband. My confidence and self-esteem increased.
When you physically change it, it spills over into every area of your life. The seemingly impossible becomes possible and nothing feels beyond your reach.
It may all sound a bit dramatic, but change does happen that Strictly I am a different person, and I am grateful.”
Matthew’s Favorite Fitness Program: Morning Meltdown 100, LIFT4, P90X3, #MBF, Country Hits, Let’s Get Up!, A Week of Hard Work

The Beachbody Challenge is a transformational competition that rewards people for achieving their goals and leading healthy, fulfilling lives.
“We ‘challenge’ people to give Beachbody an honest try, and see what this proven system of fitness, nutrition and support can do.” said Arthur Mayer, senior director of the competition. “If you really commit to a program and give it your best effort, while documenting your results with photos and measurements over time, we know you’ll see and feel the difference! The rewards we offer – from free gifts to big cash prizes – are an extra incentive for everyone to go on the journey.”
Everyone who enters their transformation story in the Beachbody Challenge contest wins a free gift (like a shirt),** and nearly 35,000 contestants have claimed that prize over the past year.
In addition to free gifts, the year’s 96 most inspiring transformation stories each win $500 USD and the top 8 “finalist” teams receive special recognition and big cash prizes at Beachbody’s annual Coach Summit event — from $15,000 to a grand prize of $100,000!
