Mario Castrejon

My name is Mario Castrejon and my wife is Yasira. We are Independent Team Beachbody coaches, and we both work together. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I’m an assistant engineer and an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. I love P90X, Insanity, Shakeology, and I also like to run. I am very passionate about fitness, nutrition and about helping other people. Some of my hobbies include dancing salsa, playing chess, basketball, and watching both boxing and the UFC fights. I’m also a volunteer tutor for middle and high school students.

My transformation:

I have always been thin in my entire life. When I graduated high school, I was 6’1″ and weighed 120 lbs. I was never in any sport teams, but I always liked to play basketball and tennis just for fun. When I was in my late 20’s I started working out, but I really didn’t know what to do. I was completely new to eating right and working out. I decided to join a gym, but I was never consistent at working out or eating right. As I got older my metabolism slowed down and I was weighing 190 lbs. I didn’t like how I looked or how I felt and it was time for a change. I decided to get serious, and I hire a personal trainer. He helped me out for the time I worked with him, but it was expensive and I knew I had to find something else.

On September of 2007 I found out about P90X, and I immediately ordered it. I was very excited to do it and learn more about nutrition. Right away I noticed the difference between P90X and the gym. With P90X I had a lot of peer support, and I was able to make a lot of friends on the message boards. I completed my first round of P90X and, I was very happy with my results.

After completing my first round I started another round right away. P90X opened my eyes to a whole new world of fitness. Now, I am always looking for more fitness challenges. I have done P90X+ and Insanity, also last year I started running. I have completed 5K, 8K, 15K, and 10-mile races. Currently I am doing a modified version of P90X, while also preparing for the 2011 Chicago Marathon. I am also looking forward to starting P90X2 in January of 2012. Fitness has become my passion and lifestyle. I love helping and motivating people get in great shape by eating healthy and working out.
