If you know only one thing about Isagenix, it should be the IsaBody Challenge® and the absolutely incredible people and health and wellness journeys it represents. Through each 16-week Challenge, we witness thousands of participants experience outstanding total-body transformations, and our latest Challenge was no exception. We’re so proud of everyone who participated!

Judging Period 1 has come to an end, and the IsaBody® Finalists have been chosen. Each will receive US$3,000 and tickets and paid expenses for them and a guest to New Year Kick Off, and they’ll go to NYKO 2021 for the chance to become the IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner or Runner-Up!

Now, without further ado, meet the five amazing individuals who positively crushed their IsaBody Challenge and whose stories left us downright speechless.

Heather Keach
Exeter, New Hampshire
Age: 23
Height: 5’3”
Total Weight Loss: 86 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 2

Heather has struggled with her weight her entire life. She remembers not fitting into the same clothing brands as her friends in high school and being the only senior not to make the varsity field hockey team because she couldn’t run even half a mile. She remembers continuing to struggle as she had two beautiful babies, gaining and keeping on weight each time. She remembers struggling in her marriage, as a mom, and in finding something greater than herself. Luckily, thanks to Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge, that’s all those struggles are: memories.

Today, Heather is 86 pounds lighter and feels the difference not only physically but also mentally.* She has more energy for her kids, has a strong marriage, and is now focusing on goals that are not tied to the scale. She’s running farther, lifting heavier, and fitting into smaller jeans. The IsaBody Challenge has done so much for Heather and her family, and she is thankful to Isagenix every day.

Jose Castaneda
San Antonio, Texas
Age: 41
Height: 6’1”
Total Weight Loss: 23 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 2

Jose wakes at 4:30 a.m. each morning, and it never gets any easier. In fact, it gets harder and harder to wake up excited to train. But he knows this journey is never easy, and it’s up to him to keep going. Jose often has aches and pains from former injuries, but that doesn’t stop him from becoming a faster runner, a stronger swimmer, and a better cyclist.

Jose’s biggest challenges in life have always been in the decisions he’s made, the people he’s trusted, and the way he sees himself, but the IsaBody Challenge is one choice that has taught him that a clear plan accompanied by focus and dedicated execution is the key to reaching his goals. Jose is a husband, a father, an athlete, a small business owner, a warrior, and a veteran, and this Challenge and community is helping him become a stronger version of himself and all that he is every single day.

Shaun Ashman
Mansfield, Texas
Age: 40
Height: 6’0”
Total Weight Loss: 39 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 2

After retiring from playing professional baseball to co-parent his daughter, Shaun continued to eat what he wanted, when he wanted, despite no longer exercising seven days a week on the field. His activity levels dropped almost as fast as his nutrition routine. Over the next 10 years, Shaun ignored his gradual weight gain of 50 pounds. It wasn’t until he couldn’t fit into his favorite suit for his daughter’s daddy-daughter dance that he realized it was time to make a change.

Shaun reached out to a friend who was using the Isagenix System and completing an IsaBody Challenge, and after hearing his story, Shaun was all in. Sure, the doubts creeped in at first, but Shaun put those fears in an iron box and locked them away.

Now, this journey is his way of life, and he’s determined to keep sharing IsaBody and this nutrition with others. He’s getting “fit for the adventure of life” and couldn’t be more excited for the future and for living life to the fullest with his daughter.

Michael Doran
Malone, New York
Age: 48
Height: 5’10”
Total Weight Loss: 61 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 7

During the summer of 2017, Michael had grown weary in his lifelong search for health and wellness. What seemed like a simple problem had turned into an almost endless cycle of trying and failing. Every time he’d start to make progress in one area of his life, he’d find himself failing in others. He was overweight and a poor role model and felt there was no light at the end of the tunnel. He just couldn’t find a life balance.

Luckily, what Michael did find was the IsaBody Challenge, and that’s when everything changed. The cycle of trying and failing ended, and now the only cycle for Michael and his family is start, complete, and repeat. In two years and seven completed Challenges, he has become a positive example for others, and he and his family are living healthier lifestyles than they ever thought possible. Now there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and that light is very bright.

Tami Schiltz
Madison, Wisconsin
Age: 37
Height: 5’5”
Total Weight Loss: 6 pounds*
Challenges Completed: 7

Tami’s first memory of hating her body was in third grade. She still has the old workout tapes on VHS. She continued to struggle with body dysmorphia for most of her life, starving herself through high school and emotionally binge eating her way through college. She gained 40 pounds in those years and became a shell of who she was. Her degree in exercise and sport science and master’s in nutritional science didn’t help, nor did becoming a registered dietitian. She felt like a failure.

Then Tami found Isagenix and registered for the IsaBody Challenge. Despite fears of being the kind of dietitian who promoted superfood shakes, she knew in her heart that this system worked and that IsaBody was what she needed to stay accountable. She trusted the process, and it’s changed her life. Not only has she experienced a physical transformation, but she’s also following her dreams and sharing the gift of Isagenix.

*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.
