“The Challenge Brought Us Closer as a Famil

Challenge Champions Ken & Jennifer Smith: “The Challenge Brought Us Closer as a Family”

Meet Ken and Jennifer Smith.

They didn’t have time to get healthy. They were, well, busy. Jennifer was focused on raising their three children. Ken, a police officer, was daily fighting crime. But then a photo posted on Facebook changed everything.

“I had gained 80 pounds after my kids were born, but I didn’t really recognize that until I literally saw it on a picture on Facebook,” says Jennifer. “I thought, ‘holy moly…I am fat!’” And so she instantly decided to start The Challenge.

Ken, on the other hand, needed more convincing to start his own weight-loss journey. “I realized that when I tried to run a race and struggled to get up the mountain, I needed to transform my life,” says Ken.

In the next 90 days, he lost 30 lbs.

Today, a healthier, more energetic Ken and Jennifer run together.

“It’s brought us closer,” says Jennifer. “We’re in the gym every day, and it’s exciting to see our children follow in our footsteps and make healthy decisions.”

Their transformations led to a defining moment for the couple on the national Vitality event stage. They were crowned Vi Challenge Champions in the Couple Active/Fitness category.

“I was totally in shock when they announced our names,” says Jennifer. “I mean, I was just happy I was there, and I was prepared for somebody else to win and to cheer them on. When they said our names, I almost jumped through the roof!”

The couple’s ‘Why’ motivates them.

“My ‘Why’ is my kids, my wife, and my job,” says Ken. “As a police officer, I need to be in top physical shape. How can I protect others if I can’t protect myself? I want to be an example to the community.”

Jennifer’s ‘Why’ is her family.

“There are days when I don’t want to go to the gym,” she says. “But, my kids know that I need to be there and give me a hard time if I don’t go—my 6-yr-old child keeps me in check. Ken is my #1 cheerleader, and I am his backbone. We are a tough-love family. We all drive each other. And I feel I’m a better mom because of it.”

The couple plans to do more mud races together and to continue living healthy lifestyles.

In the meantime, Jennifer can perfectly sum up their Challenge success story…

“We were the stereotypical American family: stressed mother and fulltime working father. We didn’t have quality time for family and health. But, The Challenge brought us closer together; it literally transformed our relationship. It’s that stronger family bond that has increased our well-being and happiness, and now we’re able to challenge and help others.”

My Challenge Story
ok having always done serious cardio all my life competing in ironman triathlons and endurance events I decided to push my comfort zone and try gaining some lean muscle which totally changed the type of exercise and recovery phases from what I was used to.
From lifting heavy weights to learning what DOMS ( delayed onset muscle soreness) really felt like this pushed me but I did enjoy it, and now I use a new concept speedflex which will help me get lean muscle and develop more gains in my next challenge……coming soon!!!

Hi All,

When I took the challenge, I was a hairy guy. I shaved it off so I can see the progress. That was when it hit me! I looked into the mirror and I could not believe how average I looked.

I knew I had some extra on me to loose, but this was a shock. That was the moment when I decided that I don’t ever want to see this average guy in the mirror again, whatever it takes I get that 6 pack and myself into shape!

I digged up my P90X2 DVDs, after 3 weeks I started to see results. I was doing it every day beside full time job. I switched from P9X2 on day 70 to Insanity. I done the full 60 days workout with great results from my Shape Kit.

My dream is to become the ViModell for Ireland, to be on the front cover of the ViSalus Challenge Magazine and I keep going ever day till I get there! You can see on my FB page what I do to achieve that.

Now I’m asking your help to make my dream real and vote for me on Sunday to become ViModel for Ireland.

I thank you for your help and support!

Getting in shape has little to do with losing weight.
I find that people focus too much on it.

Body weight represents the weight of your total bodily content which is mainly composed of water, muscle and fat.

And when you lose weight, it’s always a mixture of some water, muscle and fat. In the beginning, your weight loss is usually mostly from water since it’s the easiest and quickest weight to shed, but as you progressively keep losing more weight the ratio of water, muscle and fat mixture starts to change…and believe it or not in many cases the ratio shifts towards more water and muscle and not as much fat.
And that’s because when you’re focused on losing weight only…you tend to do things that’s more conducive to losing muscle weight rather than fat.

You see fat is inherently “stubborn”, it doesn’t like to give itself up for energy unless it’s absolutely necessary. For instance, dire survival situations where there’s lack of food and the only way you can survive is by using fat for energy. Fat usually only comes into play when all other sources of energy are depleted.

So that means when you participate in a typical “calorie burning” cardio based exercise that requires large amounts of energy for 1 – 2 hours… typically this is what happens. First, your body uses glucose/glycogen for energy, then it turns to muscle for energy because it’s more readily available to provide energy than fat. Finally when glycogen and muscle are both being utilized, your body reluctantly turns to fat as the last source of energy.

Keep in mind that this isn’t a clean, step by step process, there’s overlap and in reality your body uses a mixture of all energy sources at one time. BUT what’s important to keep in mind, is that fat provides the least amount of energy during a typical “calorie burning” exercise like running, biking or even aerobics that lasts for 1 – 2 hours.

So what’s the big deal…I mean you’re still losing weight which is ultimately your end goal…right?

Well, not quite. See, although muscle weighs more than fat, it’s also more metabolically active than fat which means it burns more calories. AND guess where those calories come from? You guessed it…FAT! Having lean muscle allows you to burn off unwanted stubborn fat, which is what’s ultimately going to get you that lean, toned and tight body.

So you see…weight loss isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Don’t get me wrong, weight loss is usually par for the course when you get lean and fit, but it’s only one aspect. I think a much better gauge for getting lean, fit and healthy is your body measurements and improvement of overall strength and endurance. And the best method to build lean muscle while increasing overall fitness level is using full body exercises. Full body exercise involves the use of multiple large muscle groups – preferably involving both your lower body and upper body at the same time. The more muscles that are involved in the exercise the better.

Over exercising…especially doing long cardio activities, will make you weak, tired and keep you fat. It’s the best way to “lose weight” without getting leaner or more fit while retaining most of your stubborn fat. Even worse, you’ll be setting yourself up for a vicious cycle of on again off again weight loss. You see, once you lose lean muscle, your metabolism will naturally slow down…no matter how much you exercise. Then you’ll likely revert to cutting calories or going on extreme diets to keep trying to losing weight, until you get so frustrated from not seeing any weight loss, that you quit.

So instead of focusing on weight loss, shift your attention to these 3 key factors, so you can make your journey to a healthier, leaner and fitter body a successful one.

#1 Focus on keeping your lean muscle mass by lifting weights using full body exercises. The more lean muscle means higher metabolism…and that ultimately equals more fat loss… not water and muscle loss. So don’t concern yourself too much with body weight since it’s not representative of what kind of progress you’re actually making.

#2 Take measurements of your body. This is a much more accurate way to keep track of your progress. Although muscle weighs more than fat, it also takes up less space than fat. Therefore burning off fat and replacing it with lean muscle mass will reduce the overall size of your body. NOTE: For men, getting lean and fit may mean reduce overall size BUT not in appearance. Losing fat and gaining lean muscle will make you look more defined and muscular. And the same goes for women as well. Building lean muscle by lifting challenging weights won’t make you look bulky or manly…rather you’ll end up getting tight, trimmed and toned

#3 Focus on improving your strength and endurance rather than just your weight. By gaining strength and building more stamina, you’ll have more energy and be fit enough to partake in any activities so you can enjoy life to the fullest!

Keeping your focus on these 3 key factors will help you make consistent progress to get leaner and more fit, while avoiding the most common traps and pitfalls of overexercising and chronic dieting.

It’s the one protein shake that actually tastes good.” – Britney Spears

As Seen in Women’s Health Magazine: “It’s the one protein shake that actually tastes good.” – Britney Spears

By ViSalus @visalus

In the January/February 2015 Issue of Women’s Health Magazine, the pop star shares her two-week workout journal where she gives Vi a shout-out in the form of our Vi-Shape® Shake!

Here are the details:

“Britney tells us she sips a blend of milk, ice, and ViSalus shake mix before workouts: ‘It’s the one protein shake that actually tastes good,’ she says.”

In my opinion this shake not only taste great (and I taste a lot of different ones) but also is the only one that has NO SUGAR added!!!

And there is no doubt that SUGAR make us fat!!! And not only…

Try it yourself!!!

Would you like to hear this one day from your child?

Challenge Champion Matt Adams Rewarded by Young Son’s Words: “I’m Proud of You, Dada.”

By ViSalus @visalus

The photo Matt Adams recently took of his empty wardrobe reminds him of what he accomplished: losing 91 lbs. And that significant weight loss meant Matt could donate his clothes and purchase new ones that fit. Of course, he didn’t mind the extra expense. After all, losing that weight had helped him win the title of ViSalus’ Male Weight-Loss Challenge Champion at the company’s international event, Vitality 2014.

MattFamilyBut Matt’s ultimate reward came after telling his family he had just been crowned on stage, and hearing his 2-year-old son, Cooper tell him, “I’m proud of you, Dada.”

Cooper was Matt’s ‘Why’…his inspiration. And, his example.

“My son had a very difficult time entering this world, and he struggled for five weeks after birth,” says Matt. “I saw him fight… and I knew I needed to fight for my health. I learned from him.”

So when his friend, Danielle challenged Matt to lose weight, he accepted The Challenge.

“Physical fitness had become a struggle for me,” he says. “I had tried to be physically active, but I had low self-esteem. I mean, I got out of breath just walking around. What was especially concerning to me was that I couldn’t bend down to wash my boy in the bathtub. I realized I would have to work hard to become the best version of myself for me—and my son.”

MattphotoMatt, currently working as a child and youth worker in Ontario, Canada, not only started eating better, but he also began exercising.

“Before The Challenge, I couldn’t even do a chin-up,” says Matt. “I can do two sets of five now. Every day, I’m moving and improving my flexibility. I now take my son through the playground maze, rather than just watching him do it. I do push-ups, and my son sees me as a role model… and wants to do push-ups too.”

Matt’s experience on the Vitality stage in front of thousands brought a whirlwind of emotions.

“When they announced my name, emotion came straight up through my feet,” he says. “Fear was all gone. It transformed me. And, I even won $6,000 just for losing weight!!! Afterwards, people approached me and shared how much my transformation had inspired them. I told my story to an Olympian, and he even thought my story was profound.”

Wanting to create a healthy lifestyle for himself, Matt has no intention of stopping his Challenge journey. In fact…

“I plan to be the next Vi Model,” he says, “and I’m encouraged every day by the support of my wife, Donna, and the goal of continually becoming the better version of me. I want to always show my son how the seemingly impossible can become the possible.”
