At Isagenix, we LOVE the IsaBody Challenge® because it allows us the privilege of watching participants transform their bodies and their lives through each 16-week journey. That’s truly amazing! Now, it’s time to do one of the things we love most — announce our latest IsaBody Challenge Finalists. Everyone who participated in this Challenge had an absolutely incredible transformation, so as always, choosing our finalists was a challenge in and of itself.

After much deliberation, our Canada IsaBody™ Finalists have been chosen. Each will receive CA$3,000, free registration and paid expenses to attend Canada Celebration with a guest, and an all-expenses-paid vacation to Costa Rica for the IsaBody Escape!

Meet the 12 remarkable individuals who were chosen as Judging Period 4 Canada IsaBody Challenge Finalists!


Chera Harris
Kelowna, British Columbia
Age: 43
Height: 6’1”
Total Weight Loss: 95 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 4

For six years, this single mom put her health on the back burner. Money was always tight, and she couldn’t justify spending anything on reclaiming her body and wellness. Then one day, she realized what she really couldn’t justify was her weight gain and the discomfort that came with it. She finally said yes to Isagenix, and now, she is no longer a prisoner to the scale and doesn’t feel guilty for making herself a priority. Instead, she’s focused on being the best version of herself she can be.




Drake Siesling
Barrie, Ontario
Age: 34
Height: 6’2”
Total Weight Loss: 23 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 7

Between working his usual 9-to-5 job and helping his wife renovate and expand her gym, Drake is a busy man. Throw in being a brand-new dad to his daughter who was born last August, and he’s never been this busy in his entire life! Still, Drake has made time to work out harder and more consistently than he ever has so he’ll be ready to compete in his fitness competition later this year. It’s hard to believe he can do it all, but he says it’s possible thanks to the IsaBody Challenge and Isagenix products.




Francois Newbury
Cantley, Quebec
Age: 39
Height: 6’1”
Total Weight Loss: 12 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 1

As a father, husband, engineer by day, and pseudo-entrepreneur by night, Francois quickly found himself overwhelmed. He was chasing the wrong people and the wrong endeavors, and the stress sent him into a constant fight-or-flight mode. His kids, wife, and clients deserved nothing less than his best, but that wasn’t what they were getting — until Francois found the IsaBody Challenge. The Challenge completely reshaped his life, allowing him to be the best man he could be.




Jacques Robert
Calgary, Alberta
Age: 57
Height: 5’8”
Total Weight Loss: 7 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 9

Jacques has come a long way since his first Challenge in October 2012. The part of his transformation he values the most is his new mindset. He doesn’t have to think about the steps he takes daily to better his overall health and wellness; they’re second nature, just like brushing his teeth or driving his car. His habits for eating clean, remaining physically active, and growing his spiritual and social connections are also no-brainers, and life keeps getting better and better every day.




Jesse Gabrielle
Regina, Saskatchewan
Age: 21
Height: 6’0”
Total Weight Gain: 20 pounds of lean muscle**
Challenges Completed: 1

Seeing his mom struggle with poor health and low self-esteem broke Jesse’s heart, so he decided to look for a nutrition program they could do together. He found Isagenix, and the products helped Jesse, a professional hockey player, crush his preseason goals while his mom turned her health around. His dad later joined them, completely transforming his health as well, and he gave Jesse the confidence he needed to do more. Jesse says his mom and dad have sacrificed a lot so he could become a pro athlete, but he’d trade it all for the healthy parents he has today. Now, he’s helping other parents and fellow athletes with Isagenix.




Kary Odiatu
Unionville, Ontario
Age: 49
Height: 5’6”
Total Weight Loss: 30 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 7

After spending most of her time in the hospital with her son who was in ill health, the stress began to take its toll on Kary. She was introduced to Isagenix and decided she had nothing to lose. Taking steps to improve her health allowed Kary to feel calm for the first time in years, and at the age of 49 (after having five babies!), she has the lean physique she once had as a top fitness athlete. More importantly, she’s had the strength to turn tragedy into an opportunity to counsel others and give back to the hospital that helped her son.




Katrina Simons
Kamloops, British Columbia
Age: 54
Height: 5’3”
Total Weight Loss: 45 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 12

Growing up, Katrina had always been told she wasn’t good enough, but that didn’t keep her from loving life. She was a social butterfly and excelled as an athlete, which made her feel worthwhile. When she got older, that suddenly didn’t work anymore. She felt like she was losing herself until she found Isagenix. Through this Challenge, Katrina has not only reclaimed her life but has also discovered that all she needs is her Isagenix family.




Martin Bolduc
North Vancouver, British Columbia
Age: 53
Height: 5’7”
Total Weight Loss: 15 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 8

As a cancer survivor, Martin can say from experience that health is wealth, so he’s doing everything he can to stay as healthy as he can be. At the age of 53, he feels like he’s in his 20s and is focusing on being a good role model for his 11-year-old son so they can keep skiing, hiking, ice skating, and playing tennis together. Martin never thought he’d be able to stay lean year-round, sleep deeply, and wake up pain-free each day, but he now believes he has the tools in his life (and kitchen) to help him do just that.




Mert Karakilic
Coquitlam, British Columbia
Age: 40
Height: 5’9”
Total Weight Loss: 130 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 9

From the outside looking in, this dad of two had achieved much in life. He was confident and happy and had a great family. But, what he’d been putting off all those years was working on his physical well-being. Mert had reached 321 pounds, and one day, the question hit him: Would he be healthy enough to watch his kids grow up? That thought stopped Mert in his tracks, and today, he’s never looked or felt better in his life. He’s now the superhero his family always knew he could be.




Stacey Boivin
Calgary, Alberta
Age: 44
Height: 5’8”
Total Weight Loss: 22 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 5

Working full time, building her Isagenix business, prepping for fitness competitions, and being a mom definitely keep Stacey busy. But, with the help of Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge, she’s able to keep it all under control and feel her best. All she needs to start her day is an IsaLean™ Shake, and she has the complete nutrition she needs to fuel her body, get her family ready to face the day, and share the products that keep her going.




Teresa Peters
Edmonton, Alberta
Age: 52
Height: 5’11”
Total Weight Loss: 125 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 7

Teresa knows that when you rise, it can leave you in a position to fall. After successfully losing 100 pounds, Teresa suffered more losses than she thought she could handle: her career, a sister, and the person she thought she would marry. She reverted to old habits and regained those 100 pounds because she had the tools to manage her weight but not the issues she was facing within. Finally, she made the decision to make herself a priority, and with the help of this Challenge, lost 125 pounds.* Her Isagenix community is her family and has helped her realize that when you rise, you may stumble, but if you take it as an opportunity to learn, you will not fail.



Kim Bell
Calgary, Alberta
Age: 43
Height: 4’11”
Total Weight Loss: 15 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 2

As a child, Kim always imagined what her life was going to be like when she grew up. She imagined days full of happiness, adventures, and most importantly, love. Unfortunately, a toxic relationship left Kim still searching for this life. In her quest for happiness, she noticed a friend was using Isagenix and thriving. Kim tried the products and felt like she had an extra kick in her step. She suddenly knew that this was the right next step for her. With the help of the IsaBody Challenge and its community, she continued to get stronger physically and mentally. Today, she and her son are happier and closer than they have ever been.

*Weight loss should not be considered typical. A two-phase 2016 study published by researchers at Skidmore College showed an average weight loss of 24 pounds after 12 weeks. The study evaluated the use of Isagenix products in men and women for weight loss followed by weight maintenance. 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. During the weight maintenance phase, the subjects who continued the calorie-controlled program using Isagenix products better maintained their weight loss in comparison to those who transitioned to a traditional diet after 52 weeks. For more information on the study, see

Results vary with individual effort, body composition, eating patterns, time, exercise, and other factors, such as genetic and physiological makeup.
