PHOENIX, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As a certified athletic trainer and instructor of basic nutrition, 36 year old Ben McKenzie began questioning the true meaning of "fit" after he found himself more than 100 Pounds overweight, "I spent most of my days watching and assisting fit people succeed in the sports world. I had worked with several All-Americans and a dozen or so national champion wrestlers in my career.  I thought I had a pretty good idea of what it took to be fit."

Ben McKenzie after his life transforming weight loss with the help of Isagenix.

Ben, however, experienced erratic work hours that had adverse effects on his body. He found it difficult to eat well balanced small meals consistently throughout his day. "The meals would slowly get farther and faster. I would find time to not go to the gym." Ben knew it was time for change when he tipped the scale at 282.8 pounds. "It was unacceptable and was not how I planned my early fatherhood years."

The Athletic Trainer was introduced to Isagenix, a worldwide health-and-wellness company that specializes in systems that support sustainable weight management and fitness lifestyles. "I researched the company. I was excited. I liked what I was reading." Ben knew that in order to be successful in his weight-loss journey, he must have a plan. He knew success required commitment, dedication, and perseverance. He saw that all of this would be offered in Isagenix's IsaBody Challenge®, a body transformation challenge offering more than $200,000 in Cash and Prizes.

"After only 12 days with Isagenix, I knew this was the time I was going to succeed and find the lifelong health that I deserve." By the end of Ben's first IsaBody Challenge, he had dropped over 75lbs.  "The amount of energy I had was unreal, I wanted to workout every free second I had." Ben then decided to compete in a second IsaBody Challenge, determined to lose over 100 lbs with Isagenix. "I made it there. In fact, at the end of my challenge I weighed 180 lbs."

Ben shares that he will continue on his health journey although he states, "I have already won enough life back to be grateful forever."
