Interview with Jesse
What makes X so special?
I would say the real accountability is what makes X so unique. I had previously started with the standard subscription, and it was great to see all of my data and the trends that I had. But an app can't "guilt you" (in a positive way, of course) into maintaining my goals. I'm the type of person who doesn't want to disappoint people and having that interaction and direct feedback from Aaron, my coach, has helped me immensely.
What has changed with your body or lifestyle since starting on X?
I'd say a good way to sum up my lifestyle changes is awareness. I'm much more aware of the choices I make daily - concerning my nutrition, exercise, and meditation. Seeing everything in the reports lays out most things about my life, and it makes it gives me awareness when I need to make adjustments. I like the Google Chrome extension because it gives me an overview of my day whenever I'm on my laptop.
Why did you choose your specific coach?
I chose my coach mainly because of his focus on mindset. While strength and muscle building are both very important to me, really having the right mindset and attitude towards change is something I needed to make lasting adjustments.
Were there any specific aspects of your health your coach was most helpful with?
My sleep has definitely improved. Aaron and Gyroscope Coach really hit home on the importance of a good sleep schedule. Seeing my health score drop after only a bad night or two of sleep was really motivating. And yes, my fitness has improved. I'm working out more and really fitting it into my schedule. I really enjoy the health score for getting an overall checkup on how I'm doing.
What section of your roadmap did you find most helpful for your goals?
The "Mindset and Mood" section, has been the most helpful in achieving my goals. Aaron is big on consistency, and that's really stuck with me. Each individual health-related decision I make does not matter nearly as much as the overall trends and consistency. An unhealthy meal one day won't matter, but make it a habit, and it will have huge impacts.
What would you say to people who may be on the fence about X?
I'd say to give X a shot and be open-minded. The comprehensive nature of X's data truly sets it apart. And having my coach evaluate all of my metrics is something I've never seen at a consumer level before. I've enjoyed my time with X, and it has led to a holistic improvement of my health.
