Fitness Pro Creates Sleeker Shapes With Isagenix®
Jill wasn’t looking to get in shape. The 52-year-old Star Consultant from Arizona is a personal trainer and a national figure competitor who is probably in better physical condition than most people 20 years her junior.
However, with the help of Isagenix®, not only has she experienced unprecedented success in competitions, but she’s also helped her clients and built a business that she expects will serve as her full-time career in the near future.
Jill had been a bodybuilder for nearly 10 years, but when she decided that she wanted to step up in competition with a trip to nationals, it became clear that steroids were considered par for the course. That wasn’t a step Jill was willing to take, so she decided to cross over into figure competitions, which she says are considered “a bit softer.”
One of her clients just happened to be Isagenix Co-Founder Kathy Coover, who had recommended Isagenix to her. Jill wasn’t sold at first, but after looking over the nutritional ingredients she reconsidered and even told her husband Scott, also a bodybuilder, about the products.
“We had been with Bodybuilding.com and GNC for years and weren’t looking for any new supplements,” says Jill. “When Kathy showed me the list of the ingredients used in the products, with my background in nutrition I immediately knew I had to get on Isagenix.”
Jill and her husband Scott soon began to see results with both gaining more muscle* and successfully reducing their body fat percentages*. Once she realized the success they were having, she decided it was the perfect time to put the products to the ultimate test. She cut back on her normally intense workouts and watched to see what the products could do for her in competition.
“I tested Isagenix prior to and during events and took home two fourth-place finishes in an event, which is really good,” shares Jill. “While training, I was just exhausted all the time, but my endurance went up** after I started using Isagenix.”
Jill knew immediately that she had a product people would want, especially given her elite clientele who generally want to lose weight and gain extra energy, plus do it quickly. With her experience as a trainer and the wide variety of nutritional products available, it’s been easy to find something to offer each of her clients.
“Isagenix is for people who are overweight, underweight and want more energy. I tailor the systems based on what I see and hear from them and can dial in where I don’t think other people can.” explains Jill. “Before Isagenix, if you wanted muscles, I knew how to train them. Now I can help them shape their body both inside and out and keep them on the products longer.”
While Jill said that connecting with other fitness competitors is difficult because they’re extremely skeptical, she says the products are selling themselves with their physical results.
Her husband Scott has also been enjoying the benefits of Isagenix, even though he no longer competes as a bodybuilder.
“He stays on the products so he keeps in shape,” shares Jill. “Bodybuilders are on a yo-yo, either fat and out of shape or in season. He can stay on Isagenix and still look good without a lot of the work.”
For Jill and Scott, though, the most important thing Isagenix has done is to allow them to plan for the future, both financially and physically.
“It has afforded us so much freedom and time. We plan on doing our business full-time in the next year and quitting everything else,” explains Jill. “We love the products and the compensation plan. Everybody wants to stay healthy and live longer. To me, it’s anti-aging and I don’t think that’s talked about enough.”
