We saw it as an opportunity to elevate what we were already doing and a great way to reach more people, impact more lives, and build our team.”

“You don’t have to be a competitor to benefit from Team Isagenix,” says Mike. “This program is a great way to show what can be done with the products, from weight loss to energy to muscle gain. Whether you’re an athlete or not, you need great nutrition to have a good quality of life, and with Isagenix, the proof is in the pudding.”

Mike’s Training Tip: If you are looking to lose fat and build lean muscle mass, try doing short, high-intensity work with good recovery time in between. All skill levels can do three to five working sets that are anywhere from 45-90 seconds of work, followed by three to five minutes of rest. Give it your all, recover, and repeat.
