For years, Craig lived in a limit-filled world and was often told he couldn’t do things because of his size. He was a chubby child who was teased mercilessly, and the weight only piled on as he approached adulthood. At 13, he was a whopping 185 pounds; by 17 he was 225 pounds. By his early 20s, Craig was tipping the scales at 330 pounds.
He had tried numerous weight-loss programs, but to no avail. Overwhelmed by rejection and uneasy about his size, he had given up on his dream of one day owning an athletic build. Then, Craig discovered Isagenix®.
When Craig first heard about Isagenix, he was actively trying to lose weight, but was unsuccessful. After learning about Isagenix, he was motivated to make a permanent change and eager to purchase his first 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System. Craig lost 60 pounds in his first three months.
Craig was adamant about completing the 2012 Challenge. “This time I gave it everything I had,” says Craig. “Joining the Challenge was a way to hold myself accountable, set a goal, and stick with it.”
Ultimately he released 126 pounds and more than 200 inches with Isagenix. His whole-body transformation coupled with his impressive essay wowed the judged and won him the 2012 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize title plus $25,000 in cash, along with prizes including a cruise and a trip to Phoenix and Vegas.
“My sights are now set on becoming an IsaAthlete by competing in my first-ever bodybuilding competition this fall, and enjoying a life filled with inspiring others to help find their ‘I Can,’” shares Craig.
Craig gives the following tips for success: First, believe in the products. They have worked for tens of thousands of people and will work for you. Once you open up your mind and allow the system to work, it does. Compliment the program with healthy lifestyle choices like drinking high quality water, getting a good night’s rest and engaging in dynamic workouts. Then stick to it”.
Each year Isagenix gives everyone the opportunity to join in the challenge. You don’t need to have 100 pounds to lose. Some finalists have only lost 10 pounds, but they had a significant transformation and a compelling story to share. For the past 11 years, Isagenix has been significantly changing lives with their nutritional cleansing, cellular replenishing and youthful aging products.
IsaBody Challenge participants have access to mentors, nutritionists, playbooks, recipes, workout routines and more. Coaching is also free for anyone who registers with “Team Calabrese”. With tools to help you set goals and expectations, along with support from your coach, a superior product line that works, progress charts, weekly conference calls and more, you have nothing to lose but unwanted fat.
Health and releasing fat are more than simply calories in and out. While that is an important part of the equation, when you are dealing with a body that is stressed, sleep deprived, dehydrated, toxic, mal-nourished with imbalanced hormones and sedentary, simply adding some exercise and eating less are not enough for ultra-wellness and a healthy body composition. Putting good food into a toxic body is a band-aid. A cleansing, detoxifying and re-nourishing program is a proven way to jumpstart getting discipled up physically.
The IsaBody Challenge runs for 16–24 weeks and begins any time. The winner is announced in August. You must be 18 to participate. The challenge is a life changer for those who commit to it. You can see more details at www.IsaBody.com and order your 30 day system at www.KelliCalabrese.com.
