For over a decade, the IsaBody Challenge® has changed hundreds of thousands of lives. In 2017, we reached our highest year of completions to date, with over 35,000 Isagenix Members completing the Challenge! The Challenge has come a long way from a mere 200 completions in 2011!
From 35,000 completions to 15 IsaBody™ Finalists, we crowned our 2017 Grand Prize Winner onstage at Celebration, who will wear the title while proudly representing Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge.
It’s time to reveal the 2017 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner.
Congratulations to Helen Costa-Giles, our 2017 IsaBody Challenge US$25,000 Grand Prize Winner!
Helen Costa-Giles epitomizes selflessness and contribution. As a mother, coach, and career woman, she was spreading herself thin, and her constant stress and busy schedule began to weigh on her.
“I lost myself and my spark,” Helen says. “I didn’t have the balance between family and work. I’ve always been a very energetic person, and I started to lose all of that.”
Helen found herself gaining weight and neglecting her own health, but in her mind, she thought this was just how it had to be.
After a visit to her doctor for her annual checkup, Helen realized how badly her health was being affected. She was headed down a road of chronic health issues and decided she needed to make a change.
Helen started with Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge and immediately began to feel a difference. She felt her energy return, and she started to lose the extra weight.
After completing five IsaBody Challenges, releasing 90 pounds,* and gaining an impressive amount of lean muscle, Helen is a different person. Not only is she the mother she has always wanted to be, Helen now has the time and energy to volunteer in her community and work her full-time job, and she is the 2017 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner!

Weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle, and other results depicted here reflect exceptional individual experiences of Isagenix Customers and should not be construed as typical or average. Results vary with individual effort, body composition, eating patterns, time, exercise, and other factors, such as genetic and physiological makeup. In a two-phase study performed from 2015-2016 by Skidmore College in New York, researchers evaluated use of Isagenix products for weight loss. As part of the weight-loss phase, the participants took part in a calorie-controlled regimen of Shake Days and one Cleanse Day per week and lost an average of 24 pounds after 12 weeks.
