Your Invited... Change Your Future Today!
An unwanted divorce and personal family struggles haven’t held Melissa back from completing her IsaBody Challenges. Consistent workouts, a healthy diet, and daily IsaLean™ Shakes are all key components to the success Melissa has experienced after multiple Challenges. Today, she is grateful for the support she receives from Isagenix and IsaBody and is accepting her new reality while creating a vision for her future!
Jerry has a passion for sport and competition, from playing racquetball and coaching the sport at a collegiate level, to biking and running marathons, to now competing globally in kettle-bells late into his 70s. I think we can all admire his athletic abilities (and hope we’re in that good of shape at his age, too!). And Jerry has good reason for his dedication to staying fit: He had a heart attack at the young age of 39.
Since then, it’s been easy for him to stick to his exercise and healthy living routines because he knows how important it is to take care of the body that allows him to do the things he loves. Even though he was doing just fine on his own, it doesn’t mean he couldn’t benefit from the IsaBody Challenge, right?
“That’s why I’d tell anyone to give this Challenge a shot,” he said. “You have absolutely nothing to lose.”
At age 79, and after four more heart attacks from 1980 to 2011 and nine stents, Jerry’s not slowing down anytime soon, and he’s thankful that he and Liberty are in this journey together. It’s always helpful to have a partner in reaching your goals — that’s why we love our IsaBody® community!

Working full time, building her Isagenix business, prepping for fitness competitions, and being a mom definitely keep Stacey busy. But, with the help of Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge, she’s able to keep it all under control and feel her best. All she needs to start her day is an IsaLean™ Shake, and she has the complete nutrition she needs to fuel her body, get her family ready to face the day, and share the products that keep her going.
Calling all busy moms: If you’re ready to take your time back and become yourself again, Kara’s story will give you all the motivation you need. A former college athlete turned public accountant turned stay-at-home mom of three boys, Kara knows what it’s like to get busy and put your family before yourself. But she also knows just what you need to get back to who you are.
“I’ve identified as an athlete my whole life, and then suddenly I didn’t have a competitive outlet anymore,” she said. “I found one with IsaBody, and I feel more like myself than I have in years.”
The IsaBody Challenge not only gave Kara her competitive edge back (she was determined to become a finalist), but it also allowed her to fuel her body with great nutrition and start participating in fitness competitions, which is something she never thought she’d be able to do.
She’ll be the first to tell you, though — this journey isn’t just about the physical transformation. It’s about the personal growth, change in mindset, and change in lifestyle.
“I learned to put my focus on all aspects, and I can now say that this Challenge didn’t just change my body. It changed my whole life.”
No one said embarking on a full-body transformation journey was easy. Now imagine doing so while recovering from your third reconstructive knee surgery. Sounds intimidating, right? It is, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Just ask Charles.
Charles has always been active, but when he blew out his knee five years ago and could no longer run or move like he used to, it had a big impact on his life. Between that and frequent work travel, Charles gained a significant amount of weight. Then his wife encouraged him to try the Isagenix products and join the Challenge.
“For me, it was never about winning anything,” said Charles. “I just knew I needed to change up my entire routine, lose weight, and stay as lean as possible for the sake of my knee. I wanted to be able to keep up with my kids.”
Thankfully, the Isagenix products have helped Charles by helping him with his goal of getting lean while keeping his muscle mass, something he has struggled with in the past. Each Challenge has been the perfect way to mark how far he has come.
“I would tell anyone, don’t look at this as a massive transformation you’re going to accomplish all at once,” said Charles. “Break it down into small achievable goals so you can focus on winning the day, and then you’ll start winning the week.”
“When I started my first IsaBody Challenge, little did I know this would finally be the journey I needed to improve my overall health and wellness,” shares Holly. “I’ve been confined to a wheelchair for over 12 years due to a rare neuromuscular disorder called Friedreich’s ataxia, which makes it difficult for me to find the capability and energy to exercise and eat correctly.”
Holly wanted to lose the stubborn freshman 15 she left college with (relatable, right?) but was struggling to lose the weight. Luckily, though, she’s not the type to give up easily.
After watching a close friend and her own mom get great results with Isagenix and the Challenge, Holly knew she wanted in. She started using the products and having great results, but what she didn’t expect was the positivity and support she received from the IsaBody community.
Over the past three years, IsaBody has helped Holly feel more confident about her appearance than she has since being confined to her wheelchair.
“The people I’ve met are truly what makes this experience worth it,” she said. “I can’t imagine a day without this lifestyle, and I am forever grateful for the memories that I have created through this community.”
A fear of failing caused Nathan to hesitate before enrolling in the IsaBody Challenge, but when he did, his hard work paid off. Before finding Isagenix and IsaBody, Nathan was praying for some type of solution, and his prayers were answered when a friend introduced him to the products. Nathan regained his energy, released weight, and is now on a mission to help as many people as possible.
Matthew is a former Division II college football player. As a defensive tackle, he had to gain about 50 pounds. In 2018 during his senior season, he suffered from a variety of injuries and was forced to rest from the weight room. He had to quickly shift his nutrition to maintain a healthy weight.
After his mom and IsaBody Challenge Finalist Jodi Hall shared information about the benefits of Isagenix, he was able to start working out again and hit the gym harder while incorporating various products from the AMPED™ line. Keeping a balanced lifestyle, he allows himself to indulge in pizza occasionally.
Ray realized he can be successful by living by the 90/10 or 80/20 rule, cutting himself some slack. He found his true passion through Cross Fit, which he does about five times a week. He goes to the gym most mornings at 5 a.m. for Cross Fit, power lifting, and yoga and also meditates.
“If you live a healthy lifestyle 80-90% of the time, you’re going to be good. Don’t give up or get down on yourself if you mess up once in a while,” he explained.
Most importantly, Ray discovered more than fitness; he found a community of people who rally around him as he strives toward a better version of himself.
Vinny was forced into retirement from the fire service in 2014 due to work-related injuries that he still has to overcome. When he went to his first Celebration event in 2016, he told himself that the day would come when he would be onstage as an IsaBody Challenge Finalist.
“We all have the capacity to reach our goals,” he said.
Vinny is grateful for each day that doesn’t have a setback.
Jodi said that the more IsaBody Challenges she completes, the more she learns about herself.
“I wanted to unearth the ‘physical’ me, but with each passing Challenge, I’ve discovered more important aspects that needed unearthing,” she said.
Jodi understands how her previous habits and mindset sabotaged past attempts at a healthy lifestyle, so a huge part of her “why” is to be healthy enough to stay active with her sons. She garners inspiration from their perseverance and grit.
Chris understands how the person on the inside doesn’t reflect the person that others see on the outside. She often wondered if people thought she was lazy or just ate too much, and she held herself back from living an active, adventurous life. But, she wanted to experience so much more. With four Challenges behind her and over 100 pounds released,* she loves being an inspiration to others.
“I enjoy jogging now and have just completed my first half-marathon,” she said. “Before Isagenix, I would not have even thought of doing that.”
With the IsaBody community behind her, she feels like the thousands of people going through the same journey as her are cheering her on.
When he was 63, Rick looked in the mirror and was not satisfied with the person staring back at him. He was unhappy with his health and his appearance, but his daughter, an Isagenix Associate, encouraged him to try the products. Once Rick opened that brown Isagenix box, his lifestyle changed. Three years later, he is still using Isagenix and is still consistently participating in IsaBody. Even minor injuries during his most recent Challenge didn’t stop him from completing and becoming a 2018 IsaBody Finalist!
For six years, this single mom put her health on the back burner. Money was always tight, and she couldn’t justify spending anything on reclaiming her body and wellness. Then one day, she realized what she really couldn’t justify was her weight gain and the discomfort that came with it. She finally said yes to Isagenix, and now, she is no longer a prisoner to the scale and doesn’t feel guilty for making herself a priority. Instead, she’s focused on being the best version of herself she can be.

Taking steps to improve her health allowed Kary to feel calm for the first time in years, and at the age of 49 (after having five babies!), she has the lean physique she once had as a top fitness athlete. More importantly, she’s had the strength to turn tragedy into an opportunity to counsel others and give back to the hospital that helped her son.
Growing up, Katrina had always been told she wasn’t good enough, but that didn’t keep her from loving life. She was a social butterfly and excelled as an athlete, which made her feel worthwhile. When she got older, that suddenly didn’t work anymore. She felt like she was losing herself until she found Isagenix. Through this Challenge, Katrina has not only reclaimed her life but has also discovered that all she needs is her Isagenix family.
There was a time when health issues held Nikit back from pursuing his potential. After a trip to the ER helped him realize how much he needed to work on his health, Nikit listened to a friend who introduced he and his wife to Isagenix.

Between working his usual 9-to-5 job and helping his wife renovate and expand her gym, Drake is a busy man. Throw in being a brand-new dad to his daughter who was born last August, and he’s never been this busy in his entire life! Still, Drake has made time to work out harder and more consistently than he ever has so he’ll be ready to compete in his fitness competition later this year. It’s hard to believe he can do it all, but he says it’s possible thanks to the IsaBody Challenge and Isagenix products.
As a cancer survivor, Martin can say from experience that health is wealth, so he’s doing everything he can to stay as healthy as he can be. At the age of 53, he feels like he’s in his 20s and is focusing on being a good role model for his 11-year-old son so they can keep skiing, hiking, ice skating, and playing tennis together. Martin never thought he’d be able to stay lean year-round, sleep deeply, and wake up pain-free each day, but he now believes he has the tools in his life (and kitchen) to help him do just that.
Teresa knows that when you rise, it can leave you in a position to fall. After successfully losing 100 pounds, Teresa suffered more losses than she thought she could handle: her career, a sister, and the person she thought she would marry. She reverted to old habits and regained those 100 pounds because she had the tools to manage her weight but not the issues she was facing within. Finally, she made the decision to make herself a priority, and with the help of this Challenge, lost 125 pounds.* Her Isagenix community is her family and has helped her realize that when you rise, you may stumble, but if you take it as an opportunity to learn, you will not fail.
A rough childhood and toxic relationship in her adult life created a lot of self-esteem issues for Deb. In her 50s, she found herself obese and unhappy – angry with herself for allowing her body to get to where it was. As a lifelong athlete and a state police officer, this was not the norm for Deb. She promised herself she would transform into the best physically and mentally before she reached her 57th birthday. Deb joined Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge, released the weight, and now said that she is stronger than ever and has her quality of life back.
A few years ago, Melissa Stokes and her husband were struggling financially, barely able to pay their bills. In addition, Melissa was struggling personally, with low self-esteem and uncertainty that began to affect her job and her personal life.
“My ability to handle life was gone,” Melissa said.
Eventually, she hit a point where she knew she needed to make a change.
No Quick Fixes
Once Melissa started to see results from the products, she enrolled in the IsaBody Challenge®, originally motivated by the $200 product voucher. She enjoyed the lifestyle Isagenix and IsaBody™ offered, and wanted to continue to transform, but never really thought she could become a Finalist. It wasn’t until a friend made an inspiring and motivating comment on social media that Melissa thought to herself, “Maybe I can do this.”
She set a goal, reached out to people for tips and advice, and upped the protein in her diet. Then, after months and months of hard work, Melissa received the phone call announcing that she was a 2018 Finalist.
While she is in great shape today, releasing over 60 pounds total,* Melissa’s road to IsaBody™ Finalist was not quick or easy. She overcame obstacles, and mentally pushed herself more than ever before. She became laser focused on her goal, refusing to let the internal demons from her past creep back up.

“Isagenix has given me the energy and strength to push harder, faster, and stronger. I’m crushing reps like never before and feel absolutely unstoppable.” - Alvie Shepherd, Former Pro Baseball Player and Football Coach.
