With A daily regimen of good nutrition and exercise you may assume that James Magainello has been healthy all of his life, but he was diagnosed with Epilepsy at age 12. Just a year ago his doctor gave him more bad news, his blood pressure was high and his thyroid was elevated.

He decided not to let it get the best of him and went on a date with Gloria his girlfriend who happened to have a collection of Beachbody Workouts and exercise programs she seemed to have most of the collection Hip Hop Abs, Yoga Booty Ballet, Turbo Jam, Power 90, Power Half hour, he was inspired and borrowed one from her.

James committed himself to pushing play and over the course of the year lost over 20 pounds. He went to the doctor for a check up and got good news this time. He was told he had normal blood pressure.

In the beginning he was inspired by his girlfriend who is also a Team Beachbody Club Member. Now Gloria states that she is inspired by him. That mutual commitment and support allowed them to participate for the first time in the National Walk for Epilepsy.

Although he has had trouble with pain in his body he credits his new found diet and exercise routine with helping to control his Epilepsy and even reducing the needs of some medications.

He understands that it is a process to get healthy and fit but he has made the time to do it. It’s his life and his choices. He lives with epilepsy daily it is part of who he is and is NOT who he is.

In April James became a Team Beachbody Coach so in addition to Gloria he now inspires many others. About 1% of the population will have some form of Epilepsy in their life, but a healthy lifestyle can have a huge impact on a nervous disorder as well as other medical conditions.
