2014 Grand Prize IsaBody Challenge Winner Announced at San Diego Convention Center

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Life before the IsaBody Challenge® was frustrating," shares Amyra, 2014 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner. Amyra was announced at the Isagenix annual flagship event, Celebration, on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the San Diego Convention Center.

“The IsaBody Challenge changed my life,” says Amyra, who was named the 2014 IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner at the Isagenix annual flagship event, Celebration, on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the San Diego Convention Center. After retiring from professional cheerleading, Amyra was active in fitness, yet embarrassed with her physique. As a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Cheerleader and current group fitness instructor, Amyra knew how important it was to be in peak physical condition.

As a finalist she was one of 15 contestants competing for the coveted title of the IsaBody Grand Prize Winner. Amyra was awarded $25,000 cash plus many other paid prizes including travel, complimentary products and company promotions.

"All the IsaBody Finalists have become family," shares Amyra. "The transformation that's occurred has changed my life. Face that fear because what's on the other side is worth it all."

After retiring from professional cheerleading, Amyra was active in fitness, yet embarrassed with her physique. As a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL Cheerleader and current group fitness instructor, Amyra knew how important it was to be in peak physical condition. It was this motivation that drove her to join the IsaBody Challenge, a health transformation competition by Isagenix.

"To be in front of a group, trying to help them get in shape and not being in shape myself was exhausting and disappointing," says Amyra. "The stresses of motherhood and the long hours my husband was working resulted in a lot of late-night snacking and me weighing 173 pounds."

The desire to look her best, coupled with her drive to stay healthy, drove her to transform her life through the IsaBody Challenge, releasing an outstanding 22 pounds and dropping six dress sizes.*

"Taking part in the Challenge has established more credibility and more authority in my career than I could ever articulate in a conversation," explains Amyra.

The 16-week Challenge is designed to help you look and feel outstanding through proper nutrition and exercise. Her success became apparent three months into her first Challenge when she slipped back into her pre-pregnancy jeans. Even more exciting for Amyra was purchasing her first pair of size 2/4 jeans less than one year after joining Isagenix, and after completing her second Challenge—a transformation slim down of six pant sizes.*

"Amyra's IsaBody journey signifies everything we stand for in the Challenge," said Ashley Brown, IsaBody Challenge Supervisor for Isagenix. "Our mission is to transform lives—and through transforming her health and her body, we're here to be at your side—through every step of your journey to be a happier, healthier you."

*The weight-loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical. A 2008 university study showed a statistically significant weight loss of 7 pounds (3.2 kg) during the first nine days of the Cleansing and Fat Burning System.
