Meet the Finalists

Charles Payne, Georgia
Age: 44
Total Challenges completed: 4
Total weight loss over completed Challenges: 26 pounds*

Charles took this Challenge as a time to focus on gaining strength in his left knee, following reconstructive surgery in July 2019. He has taken his overall lsaBody journey one month at a time, using the IsaBody community to watch others, gain from their emotional and mental strength, and grow personally. He is forever grateful that his wife introduced him to Isagenix products, which he loves because of the results he’s experienced. Lately, he has enjoyed the AMPED™ line, which supports his workout goals.

Holly Franz, New Hampshire
Age: 26
Total Challenges completed: 6
Total weight loss over completed Challenges: 23 pounds*

When she started her IsaBody journey in 2017, little did Holly know this would finally be “the” journey she needed to improve her overall wellbeing. She has lost weight, gained lean muscle, and created smarter eating habits. Just as important, Holly has listened to her body and lives in balance without guilt. She now feels more confident than she has since being confined to a wheelchair 12 years ago due to Friedreich's ataxia, a rare neuromuscular disorder. Holly is thankful for the IsaBody lifestyle and community and appreciates the memories she’s created during her six Challenges.

Jerry Gray, Michigan
Age: 79
Total Challenges completed: 1
Total weight loss over completed Challenges: 10 pounds*

When Jerry met his wife, Liberty, they made a pact to work on their health together so they could enjoy a long, healthy life as a couple. They worked hard at their goal for 20 years, but then work and caring for her elderly parents left Liberty exhausted. A friend introduced her to Isagenix products, and she started consuming them. When she began feeling better, Jerry tried them too. He now enjoys a sense of vibrancy he says comes with consistent use of the products. In fact, Jerry is a Kettlebell Sport competitor who uses AMPED products to help train at a high level and recover well.

Kara Beverly, Connecticut
Age: 37
Total Challenges completed: 11
Total weight loss over completed Challenges: 30 pounds*

Kara started 2020 with the IsaBody Challenge and found the excitement of a new year of possibilities and new habits to be inspiring. She remains focused on health, strength, and movement, even with the recent challenges of having her three children at home all the time, assisting with their schooling, and not having access to the gym. She says Isagenix and the IsaBody Challenge have been the backbone to her healthy lifestyle, helping her continue shifting her body composition to more lean mass and less body fat while modeling good health for her children.

Morgan Bishop, South Carolina
Age: 38
Total Challenges completed: 17
Total weight loss over completed Challenges: 89 pounds*

When Morgan sees her before photo next to her progress photo, she is at a loss for words. Looking at the girl in the before photo, she can hardly remember what life was like in that body. But she is so thankful for that girl because everything she experienced made her who she is today. She is incredibly grateful for her physical and mental health and the body that she lives in now, as she’s lost over 100 pounds since starting her Isagenix journey. Morgan is committed to continuing to transform her mind, body, and soul, and her goals include building lean muscle.

*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. 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. 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.
