Joe Reclaims His Life and Youth Through IsaBody Challenge™
Joe had no knowledge of Isagenix® when he stepped through the doors of a New Jersey hotel to attend an Isagenix University. Convinced by his chiropractor son to check out the company and its products, Joe reluctantly went along for the ride. Little did he know that by the end of the first day he would commit to changing his life forever through the 2008 IsaBody Challenge™. “I was inspired by the top leaders,” recalls 61-year-old Joe. “Everything just hit me and after I heard about the Challenge, I turned to the guy next to me and said I was going to participate and win my age group.” Though typically a humble person, Joe felt compelled to tell everyone at the event about his new goal, even though the only product he’d ever tried was Ionix® Supreme which was that day. At 232 pounds* and having struggled with numerous back injuries that kept him from being active, Joe was determined to reclaim his life and get back into the jeans he’d worn nearly two decades earlier. Through weekly cleansing and his daily IsaLean® Shakes, he felt more energetic and slowly incorporated strength training into his daily walking routine. Soon, he was 49 pounds lighter and leaner with only 15 percent body fat.* While he had committed to losing weight and boosting his health through the Challenge, he never forgot the words that popped out of his mouth during Isagenix University. On the days he struggled, his vow to win his age group echoed in his ears and he pushed himself further. Still, it was a shock when he received the phone call that he had been chosen as a Challenge top finalist and then ultimately, the first-place winner in the men 60+ age category. “It’s like I’m walking on air and feel like I am on top of the world right now,” shares Joe. “For so long it felt like I would take one step forward toward better health only to take two steps back again. People see that I’m a different person now.” His son recently commented to his mother that “We’ve got the old Dad back.” Though it took a while to find the solution, Joe says he’s cherishing every moment of his newfound life. His wife even lost 30 pounds* and is back to looking like she did when they got married 35 years ago. “The outward appearance is just the tip of the iceberg,” says Joe. “Isagenix is a gift and I want to share it with others and be a role model to prove that anything is possible.” * The weight-loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical. An unpublished 2008 university study showed a statistically significant weight loss of seven pounds during the first nine days of the Cleansing and Fat Burning System.
