Entering her fifth IsaBody Challenge®, Elaine’s goals were quite different from that of her first challenge back in 2017. With the weight piling on, Elaine’s first sixteen weeks was all about weight loss and energy. She achieved just that losing 11 kgs during her first challenge.
“My fifth challenge was all about maintenance, maintaining a good healthy balance throughout Christmas and New Years,” she says. “To my surprise, I actually dropped a few kilos of fat and built a decent amount of muscle.”
Not only did she love the way her body looked and felt throughout the summer, but she also had the energy to keep up with her three toddlers and a six-year-old. “I’m so thankful for the IsaBody Challenge for keeping me in check and allowing me to enjoy the holiday season without getting carried away!”

They say there’s a single moment that can change everything, and Emma experienced just that. For Emma, it was an unflattering photo of herself in her loose trousers alongside her students that really hit home.
“That photo didn’t even look like me,” she says. “Who was that bloated, tired-looking person? I couldn’t kid myself any longer.”
Emma channelled her determination towards her health and making a positive change, which has had a lasting impact on her life. “Now, I have energy, I sleep better, and I discovered that I do have time for the gym. I can actually fit into those size 12 jeans that have been sitting in the back of my wardrobe for five years.”

Kellie knows the secrets to maintaining her incredible results are consistency, discipline and routine. After completing her tenth challenge, it’s no surprise she’s in the best shape of her life at 49 years of age. But it wasn’t always this simple.
“Raising three kids as a widow and being a full-time shift worker came with a lot of stress,” she says. “Combined with morning gym sessions and study, I felt very old.”
Despite achieving such incredible results across all of her challenges, there’s still one more milestone on the list. “This year my challenges are all about sharing the stage in 2021 with all the other Aussie and Kiwi IsaBody finalists at Celebration!”

Marc found himself in a difficult spot before starting his first IsaBody Challenge. Going through a marriage breakdown and losing his best friend to cancer, Marc turned to alcohol and poor eating habits for help, until he slowly bought into a healthy lifestyle with the help of Isagenix®.
“Feeding, nourishing and exercising my body saw dramatic improvements,” says Marc. “It gave me the clarity to find hope after so much loss and despair.”
With his new-found energy and lifestyle, Marc intends on getting back into the things that give him the greatest joy. “I’m working really hard to become a better father, brother, son, work colleague and friend to those who have helped me through the single worse year of my life and have guided me to quite possibly the greatest year of my life.”

Being overweight from a young age, Michael was always known as the ‘big fella’ of the group. Reaching 130 kgs in his early 30s, Michael had tried a lot of diets and fads throughout the years but struggled to find the consistency his body craved.
“I was drinking and living off fast food and snacks,” says Michael. “My sleep routine was non-existent, and my energy was enough to make it to the beer fridge and back.”
In 16 weeks, Michael had made a complete U-turn with his health, shedding 25 kgs and countless centimetres from his body.
“I feel the healthiest and fittest I can remember,” he says. “Everyone raves about finding the ‘old me’, but not me, I want to find a new me.”
*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 4.1 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.
*If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic, on medication, have a medical condition or are beginning a weight loss program, consult your GP before using Isagenix products or making any other dietary changes. Discontinue use if adverse event occurs.
