Insanity Workout Success Story: Gary Donovan

How 60 Days COMPLETELY Changed Gary’s Life and Look!

My name is Gary. I’m 37 years old. I have a beautiful wife and 4 wonderful children. I am a restaurant manager so that means crazy hours and lots of snacking. I have worked in restaurants since I was 16 years old and enjoy it a lot.  I have been a little heavy most of my adulthood until about six years ago. My wife and I were going to take a trip to Hawaii. I had to lose weight fast so I did the South Beach diet and gained the weight back as soon as I stopped the diet. I then crossed paths with Todd Midgett who turned me onto P90X. WOW!! I was in the best shape of my life. Things were great being in shape weighing 168 pounds. I slowly stopped working out and became lazy. I even purchased Insanity and gave up 2 weeks in.  Over time I had managed to reach 220 pounds. I have never been so over weight. My life was good but there was something missing. I was too embarrassed to go to the pool. I was even hesitant to go to the beach. How did this happen and why don’t I get off my butt and do something about this ran through my head every day. I finally made the decision this January to give Insanity another go. Thank God I did!  A group of friends said they wanted to start an Insanity workout group. What better time than now. I committed to them and myself with the support of my loving wife. I go every night to my buddies house where 7 of us hold each other accountable. It’s been great doing the workouts. Throughout the pain and agony I found a way to “dig deeper”.  I now have so much energy. We have all come a long way. I am proud to say that I have lost 25 pounds so far. We will be starting Asylum in a week. Can’t wait.
