Tomas Vienazindis
Age: 36
Location: Auckland, NZ
Released: 10kgs

Conscious of living a healthy lifestyle, Tomas did all the right things. Despite regularly attending the gym and eating what he believed to be a healthy diet throughout the week, the weight still piled on. “By Friday, my unhealthy habits would return and I’d spend the weekends eating and drinking anything and everything, then feel bad about it come Monday,” says Tomas. “It was a bad cycle that I didn’t know how to break.”

After witnessing IsaBody Challenge Finalist Adam Nesbitt’s transformation on Facebook, Tomas became intrigued. “After speaking to Adam about the products I was a little bit sceptical,” shares Tomas. “But I thought about how I’d feel if these products could really help me achieve the results I desired. I thought about making my wife, my baby girl and myself proud. I ordered my first President’s Pak and registered for the Challenge, committing to eating right and exercising more.”

Within the first 30 days, Tomas began to sleep better, gained more energy and released 10kgs of excess weight. “My wife and I were both shocked by my results,” says Tomas. “I’d been trying to achieve these results for years! I’m now able to spend more time with friends and family instead of burning myself out at work. I’m not only contributing to my own life and health but I’m helping others too. It doesn’t get much better than that.”

“Before the IsaBody Challenge, I thought being constantly tired, stressed and overweight was normal. The IsaBody Challenge has allowed me to change my lifestyle, health and mentality. I’m able to show others that you don’t have to live a life where you’re too lethargic and overwhelmed to enjoy time with your family. I am so grateful for Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge.”

Claudia Tomczyk
Age: 23
Location: Magill, SA
Released: 7.5kgs

Completing an IsaBody Challenge had been on the top of Claudia’s vision board since she began using the Isagenix products in 2014. “I have always lacked consistency,” shares Claudia. “I never imagined I’d be able to complete a full IsaBody Challenge. I thought the chance to make a real change was out of reach for me.”

After returning from a two-month holiday, Claudia was feeling sluggish, overweight and perpetually bloated. “I felt so disappointed in myself, it was emotionally draining,” says Claudia. “I needed to make a change and commit to becoming the best version of myself possible so I registered for the IsaBody Challenge.”

Claudia was an open-book throughout her Challenge, sharing the ins and outs of her journey on her social media pages. “It takes a lot of bravery to share a health and fitness journey,” says Claudia. “People were able to relate to how I was feeling and I received so much support along the way. I engaged with people and shared snippets of my daily exercise routine as well as recipe ideas. I didn’t want to disappoint myself or anyone else who had invested in my journey. I wanted to inspire people.”

Gaining traction on her social media pages, Claudia’s journey has been followed by thousands. “I released 7.5kgs during the Challenge and gained a whole new perspective on health,” says Claudia. “I have learned to embrace the journey at each step. Instead of wishing to be better and comparing myself to others, I’m putting in the work to transform myself into the best version of me.”

“The IsaBody Challenge has been an absolute game-changer for my health and my Isagenix business. I am so grateful that I’ve been able to utilise the IsaBody Challenge to inspire and encourage so many people.”

Peter Graham
Age: 39
Location: Tura Beach, NSW
Released: 10kgs

The IsaBody Challenge came at the perfect time for Peter. Running his own start up food business, Peter was on his feet working over 100 hours a week, leaving little time to spend with his family. “I thought what fuelled energy was a good nights sleep and as many coffees as needed to get through each day,” says Peter. “I was overweight, overwhelmed and unfulfilled.”

Introduced to Isagenix by his wife, Kate, Peter began using the products and exercising a little more in an attempt to gain some energy and balance back into his life. To Peter’s surprise, he had noticeable weightloss in the first 30 days and gained energy and mental clarity. “I was still working 100 hours a week with the same responsibilities but I was sleeping better and feeling a lot less stressed,” says Peter. “I was able to be more present with my family. Everyone noticed the change in me.”

With renewed confidence, Peter went on and over time registered for three IsaBody Challenges with a focus on further releasing excess weight. “I never finished those three Challenges however I was still receiving results,” says Peter. “I decided I wanted to commit to properly finishing a Challenge and earning the certificate by doing something out of my comfort zone. It was then that I began strength training with weights. My body began to completely change and the past 16 weeks I’ve experienced the most changes of all.”

“I have always been passionate about pouring greatness into others but felt unworthy of receiving this myself. The IsaBody Challenge has allowed me to transform on so many levels which has allowed me to further help others more than I ever could before. I now know my purpose.”

Christina Laurich
Age: 45
Location: Avalon, NSW
Released: 1kg

Christina had been using the Isagenix system for 18 months before making the decision to register for her first IsaBody Challenge®. “I had great results using the products but I truly wanted to live an overall healthier lifestyle by incorporating exercise into my daily routine,” says Christina. “I knew joining the IsaBody Challenge would encourage me to push my limits as the community is so supportive.”

After completing her first Challenge, Christina formed amazing new lifestyle habits, with exercise and healthy eating now a staple in her life. “I am so passionate about helping others feel the way I do now,” says Christina. “I’ve set up a group for people who are participating in the Challenge as a way to form accountability and forge relationships.”

With Christina’s new-found passion for health and fitness, the mother of three was eager to lead by example and push her boundaries further than she’d thought possible. “During 2016, I participated in three INBA competitions,” shares Christina. “I still can’t believe I did it. It’s amazing what we are capable of with consistency and the right nutrition.”

“Start, complete, repeat is what it’s all about for me. I have now completed two IsaBody Challenges which marks almost a year of consistent exercise, the most consistent I’ve ever been in my life! At the age of 45, I’ve been able to create healthy habits and a balanced lifestyle.”

Weight loss should not be considered typical. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 4.1kg with an average of 0.9kg of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix Program. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet. Always consult your physician before making any dietary changes or starting any nutrition, weight control or exercise program.
