Late last year, Angelike N.’s world shifted in almost every sense.
She had a baby. Her father passed away from a sudden bout of cancer. She accepted a promotion and relocated with her husband to another state.
So, when Oxygen magazine came knocking to see if she could get into peak condition for the cover of their March 2013 issue in just a month, it would have been easy for her to turn it down. Thankfully, she knew preparing for another Oxygen cover would be easier this time around because she had Isagenix®.
“Before a child, I used to prep and carry my food everywhere. I was a ‘chew your food’ athlete and did too much cardio and weight training,” admits 34-year-old Angelike of North Carolina. “It was a difficult lifestyle to maintain and it was made even more impossible when you have to carry a diaper bag, a stroller and manage a full-time executive career. Isagenix changed my life.”
“I trusted my Isagenix products,” continues Angelike, who started using Isagenix when her daughter Ella was six weeks old and kicked it into gear in September. “I honestly feel like the products did most of the work since my schedule was very haphazard and unpredictable.”Between late board meetings, driving long distances to support her 19 team members and working from her home office, Angelike was able to cobble together a consistent cardio and weight training regimen that included key Isagenix products such as Ionix® Supreme, Want More Energy’®, IsaPro® and IsaLean® Shakes. She skipped the boxed lunches in board meetings and on planes and opted for IsaLean Bars or an IsaLean Shake instead.
When she stepped on set for her big photo shoot with Oxygen magazine, she felt better than ever.
“I was really proud and that’s the first time I could really say that,” shares Angelike. “I was proud of all of the components of truly being ‘healthy’ coming together and shooting in my best form ever, especially after bouncing back from having a child and all of the adversity I had faced.”
Her passion for Isagenix products has caught on with her husband, mother, in-laws, and other friends. And, though she initially said “no” to creating a business because of a “lack of time,” the 2-Star Golden Circle and her husband have earned good money…even having no idea what they were doing.
She could have earned money through lucrative sponsorships with other supplement companies, but it’s never been about the money. When she’d turn over bottles and notice scary ingredients that were unhealthy, she’d turn the companies down flat.
“I just wasn’t willing to make those compromises for the sake of vanity. This is about your health,” says Angelike.
Now, as she reflects on her journey with Isagenix, she says she hopes her experience will shine a light of hope for others facing tough obstacles.
“I know people are on their knees every night praying for better health, financial freedom or freedom from their bad habit,” says Angelike. “I feel like somewhere down the line, I’ll be able to help someone else going through turmoil; to help lift them up, edify them and help them get the fight back against the things that life throws at them.”
