Committing yourself to a 16-week IsaBody Challenge® can spark an astonishing transformation, but imagine what changes you can create with two back-to-back Challenges.
The Isagenix IsaBody Challenge team is committed to helping others achieve their goals of embodying a life of wellness. Often we hear many people ask why they should continue with the IsaBody Challenge after they’ve achieved their 16-week goal.
Once you’ve finished your first Challenge, here are a few reasons to complete another:
Q. Aside from the possible physical transformation, why are back-to-back Challenges beneficial?
A. For so many reasons! First, you keep yourself accountable for your body’s goals continuously. It is so valuable to track that progress on your wellness journey.
Next, completing multiple IsaBody Challenges weighs more positively in the judging process. We are looking for an ambassador of Isagenix—someone who embodies the company with their belief and commitment. Continuous Challenges show us that you’ve committed to a real lifestyle change.
Finally, no matter how many Challenges you complete, you receive an Achievement award.
Q. What is the Achievement award and why is it significant?
A. If you’re in the Challenge, we know you love Isagenix products. With that, you automatically receive a $200 product certificate along with the following prizes:
- Exclusive IsaBody Challenge T-shirt
- IsaBody Challenge pin
- IsaBody Challenge Achievement certificate
- One entry into the 2014 IsaBody Challenge Transformation Cruise drawing
- The opportunity to have stories, and “before” and “after” photos on the Isagenix website, in company publications and in promotional materials
Q. Have other back-to-back competitors ever won or been finalists?
A. Absolutely! Many past finalists have competed in back-to-back Challenges. In fact, last year’s Grand Prize Winner, Kelly Ann Z., competed in a few Challenges before winning. And this year, Ben Z. is an IsaBody Challenge finalist who also contended in a back-to-back Challenge.
“The IsaBody Challenge has inspired my tagline: It is my journey without a finish line,” says 2014 IsaBody Challenge Finalist, Jennifer R. “If you set one goal, you have to immediately set another. For example, your first goal might be weight loss, and once you’ve achieved that, you might set your next to build muscle mass. It’s so important to set one goal right after another. A journey without a finish line is so important to teach people—that is the IsaBody Challenge.”
Ben M. accepts his award as a NYKO finalist.
Q. When will the next IsaBody Challenge take place?
A. The Challenge is year-round with no deadlines to sign up. Depending on when you start and finish, will determine your Challenge judging period.
Q. How can those currently working on the IsaBody Challenge transition to the next one?
A. Those who are currently in a Challenge must completetheir first IsaBody Challenge before beginning the second subsequent back-to-back Challenge. This requires submitting four “after” photos and an essay.
Members can even use their old “after” photos from their first Challenge as their new “before” photos for their second one. Once you complete one Challenge (through submitting photos and essay), you can start your next Challenge immediately.
Q. How do I register for another Challenge?
A. Visit IsaBodyChallenge.com and fill out the form on the front page. After that, you’re set and ready to continue your inspiring journey.

Being honored with the title of IsaBody Challenge® Finalist is a major accomplishment. However, most finalists will tell you that the level of success they reached didn’t happen overnight. Experiencing success with IsaBody™ takes months, sometimes years, of dedication and discipline. Between meal prepping, goal setting, and daily workouts, every finalist has their own method for staying on track. Below, former IsaBody Finalists share some of their best tips and tricks for finding accountability or staying motivated when things get tough.
Make Simple Changes
At first, 2015 IsaBody Finalist John Murzycki focused on simple changes with his Challenge. Replacing all the junk food in his cabinets with healthy snacks like nuts, hummus, and raw veggies helped him stay on track with his nutritional goals.
Jason Snider, 2017 IsaBody Finalist, says that in order to fit his workouts in, he had to adjust his sleep schedule and wake up earlier. With three young kids, it was hard for Jason to squeeze workouts in, so he would wake up at 5 a.m. before the rest of his family and hit the gym. By the time everyone else was waking up, he was already enjoying his post-workout shake!
Find Your ‘Why’
The 90-Day Action Plan encourages you to clarify and connect with your “why.” Whether your interest in Isagenix is for your business, or related to your physical fitness, identifying your why is an important way to help you focus and prioritize your time.
Isagenix Millionaire and former IsaBody Finalist Lisa Wolny said, “I was driven by my own why. If you don’t know why you’re wanting to shed excess pounds or why you’re wanting to transform your body, then you’ll have a really hard time sticking to what it is you set out to do.”
John Murzycki said that his mindset during his Challenges was based on his why, which was to enjoy retirement, play with his grandchildren, and play drums with his bands.
“I always referred back to my why,” John said.
Consistency Is Key
Many finalists have stated the importance of being consistent in their Challenges. Mary Pike, 2008 IsaBody Finalist, shared that with her Challenge, she made sure to follow the directions on the Isagenix Systems.
Bob Scanland, 2014 IsaBody Finalist and Isagenix Millionaire,* emphasized the importance of consistency.
“The biggest tip I can give is this: stay consistent in everything you do,” Bob said.
As a successful business builder, Bob’s attitude about consistency transfers from the gym to the desk.
“Consistently going to the gym and working on your transformation day in and day out will bring results, just like consistently plugging into your team, your team calls, and any leadership training can bring results in your business,” he explained.
Jason Snider echoed the advice about consistency. “You don’t need to be 100 percent perfect all the time, but you must be consistent over the long haul. Whether it’s in the gym or with nutrition, consistency is key,” he said.
Have a Strong Essay
The essay you write at the end of your Challenge is one of the most important aspects of the 16-week process.
“When we go through the judging process at the corporate office, not only do we look for amazing transformations, we also look for compelling essays,” said Sales Program Supervisor Jenifer Montano. “We want to learn about your struggles and your successes during your 16 weeks, how you felt at the end of your Challenge, where you were before Isagenix and IsaBody, and what goals you are hoping to achieve in the future.”
Keep in mind, these are tips to help you with your mind and body transformation. It’s up to YOU to make it happen, embrace your full potential, and transform your body and your life.
Try to maintain a positive mindset, and find ways to ease your mind if you begin to struggle. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. A great way to stay positive is to join the IsaBody Facebook group for additional support.
“My trainer taught me the power of the mind,” explained Leanne Kezin, 2012 IsaBody Finalist. “He had me practice positive affirmations and visualization techniques and retrained my mind to push out anything negative. I still practice these techniques today.”
A Few Additional Tips:
- It can be overwhelming to focus on your end goal, especially if you have a significant amount of weight to lose. Start with increments and small goals, like losing five pounds. Once you accomplish that, go for the next five.
- Don’t go by the number on the scale; go by how your clothes fit and how you feel. Nonscale victories are just as important!
