At just 30 years of age, Ben Travers had his life turned upside down when the consequences of his poor lifestyle came to the surface. After suffering from chest pains at work, he was rushed to the doctor and sternly told to make some serious lifestyle changes. “Being so young I never expected to hear from a doctor that I was obese and on the verge of liver disease and diabetes,” he reflects. “I was also told to avoid physical activity because of the risk of complications. I was in shock.”
Forced to give up his passion for playing sport, Ben took the doctor’s words seriously and reached out to his Facebook friend, 2 Star Golden Circle, Crystal Executive, Jackson Baum, for guidance. “I’d been following Jack’s health posts on Facebook for some time, so I felt confident reaching out to him for support,” says Ben. “I shared my story with him and he got me started on the Isagenix® System straight away. He encouraged me to register for the IsaBody Challenge® as a way to keep accountable and track my progress.”
Within his first 30 days, Ben shed 13 kgs through exercise and good nutrition and wowed his dietician with his results. Going on to shed another 10 kgs throughout his Challenge, Ben was so stoked with his progress that he quickly registered for his second Challenge. “I’m now jumping out of bed and playing sport again,” he shares. “Since witnessing my results, my fiancé Cheyenne, registered for the Challenge and is earning awesome results too.”
Announced on stage at Celebration 2018 in March as an IsaBody Challenge Finalist, Ben continues to go from strength to strength, recently earning himself entry into the 100 Pound Club, an exclusive club for those who have released 45.5 kgs or more. “I set a goal to make it into the 100 Pound Club and I feel the greatest I’ve ever felt,” he says. “I have now set a new goal to pack on muscle and change my body composition in a way I’d never even dreamed of being possible before.”
Ben’s transformation has given him the confidence to not only keep smashing his own goals but to also guide others in their health and wellness journey. “I feel so honoured when people tell me that I’ve inspired them,” he shares. “I love showing people that anything is possible and it’s my goal to show people how they, too, can live as the best version of themselves.”
Weight-loss results depicted here should not be construed as typical or average. In a study performed in 2012 by University at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 4.1 kg with an average of 0.9 kg of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. 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 GP before making any dietary changes or starting any nutrition, weight-loss or exercise program.
