In January 2007, he entered the MDB contest weighing about 245 pounds, and 11-12% body fat. He had added roughly 50 pounds to his frame in just a couple of years using his own modified version of P90X and a high protein diet. A few weeks later, he received a call letting him know that he'd been chosen as the January $10,000 winner.
"Just prior to entering, I had chance to work out with Tony and several members of the MDB community. I had to pause several times during the workout due to lack of breath. This sent me home re-thinking my routine. It was then that I came to understand 'true fitness.' It's not just diet, not just weights, not just cardio. It's a balanced combination of the three. Beachbody had been teaching me 'true fitness' all along, and it was time to get back to that," he recalled.
Since winning the first prize, he has gone from 245 pounds (12% body fat), to 215 pounds (7%). He dropped 30 pounds (5% body fat), has significantly increased cardiovascular endurance, and has remained nearly as strong as he had been at his heavier weight
"I'm truly just your 'Average Joe.' What I have discovered is that we have the power within us to change. With diet, the right tools, a solid support system, and willpower, anyone can get started on the path to fitness," Aaron declared.
