“I’m an organic vegetable farmer; I shouldn’t be obese,” says Gary B. of Minnesota.
Despite free access to the best foods in the world, organic vegetables and grass-fed beef (in addition to a very active lifestyle), Gary discovered at a doctor’s appointment he was tipping the scales and labeled “obese.”
“Being an organic vegetable farmer, I’m the face of our farm and a real advocate for health,” shares Gary. “I knew I had to make some changes.”
Gary’s Physical Transformation
Gary’s “Before” Picture
Gary had witnessed his sister undergo an incredible transformation with Isagenix® even though she wasn’t quite as active. So, when she gave him an Isagenix 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System as a gift, he was willing to give it a try. But first, the homework had to happen.
“It’s really important for us to really know what we’re putting into our bodies. Not only that, but we really want to support companies that have integrity and that support farmers and the people that produce the product,” Gary stresses. “And what we’ve found with Isagenix is truly a no-compromise product. This company really aligned with the same values and same belief systems I had.”
Gary’s “After” Picture
Gary went on to complete the IsaBody Challenge®, losing about 60 pounds overall** and able to compete in races and triathlons. “These are things that weren’t on my radar before Isagenix,” reveals Gary. “I didn’t even think I was an athlete. Now, it’s nothing for me to go out and run a 10k or even a 15k in the morning.”
Gary’s Financial Transformation
Gary’s not giving up farming, but he is working toward financial freedom by building an Isagenix business. “As a small business owner for the last 13 years, I put so much time, energy and resources into my business. I had become a slave to our farm and that’s what happens to so many small business owners,” says Gary. Deciding to start an Isagenix business was simple for Gary. “People saw my results and wanted to know what I was doing. Then, they started their own journeys and had huge results as well.”
Gary has worked hard to grow his Isagenix business, and it’s paid off. “When you look at Isagenix, it’s really been such a huge opportunity for our family – to have time freedom,” Gary reflects.
Now a 2-Star Golden Circle Executive, Gary sees himself as more than just “Gary the Farmer.” In fact, between the Executive Leadership Pools andHoliday Bonus Pool Gary recently earned “basically $6,000* for a Christmas bonus. As a small business owner, I don’t get Christmas bonuses, so that’s pretty amazing!”
What’s more, Gary’s Isagenix business is putting the joy back into owning and running a small business. Farming can be a pretty stressful occupation but “just having another revenue stream buffers cash-flow crunches.” Now, when Gary looks at the future, he’s got more to look forward to than “okay I’m going to be working at the farm doing this for the next 30 years until I croak of exhaustion,” he says laughingly.
“What Isagenix has given to me and my family,” Gary concludes, “is hope; that life doesn’t have to be a bell-curve that goes downward as you get past 30. We can actually increase our health as we age. I’m in better shape now than I was in my 20s.”
Gary’s Favorite Products:
I certainly love the e+™ energy shots before my workouts. They’ve really just taken my workouts to a whole new level.
After my workouts, I blend Isagenix Greens!™ with IsaLean Pro®. What a great recovery after my workout to help oxygenate my blood, help me recover and help me build that lean muscle mass.
I definitely mix it up. You start your day off with the best nutrition in the world, and that’s what I love.
