Shortly after, they opened their own gym in Bakersfield and proceeded to operate both businesses for the next 3 1/2 years. In April of 2015, they realized Isagenix was providing something for people that they just weren’t able to offer at the gym: freedom. At that point, they made the decision to sell the gym and move into network marketing full time. Ross and Danielle couldn’t be happier with the light Isagenix has provided them and their family. They feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing company and are inspired to share it with the world.

Earning levels for Isagenix Independent Associates depend on time and commitment and may vary. For more information, visit IsagenixEarnings.com.

Isagenix Millionaires are defined as Isagenix Associates who have cumulatively earned $1 million or more with Isagenix.

 *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 9 pounds 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.
