The IsaBody Challenge Official Rules & Regulations
2014 IsaBody Challenge Criteria
The winners will be those Participants with the most compelling stories as to “why” and “how” improving their physical image has improved their lives. Participants will be required to submit an essay and “before” and “after” photos. Participants are also encouraged to submit other materials such as body fat analyses, lifestyle photos, and home videos to further supplement their essay and demonstrate their overall transformation. A physician or qualified trainer at a local health club can measure body fat. Any inappropriate material will be deemed invalid. All essays must be in English. A panel of unbiased judges, from the Isagenix Corporate Management Team, will select all winners. Each judge will score each contestant on a scale based on 50 percent from the essay and 50 percent from the “before” and “after” photos. A positive weight will be given to those that have competed in a previous IsaBody Challenge®. Judges will be notified if a Participant has submitted additional material and will have the opportunity to evaluate them if they choose to learn more. The scores will be tabulated to give each contestant a cumulative score from each judge. The scores of these judges will then be combined to give each contestant a final score, which will be used to determine the winners. The decision of the judges is final.
Note: If a Participant finishes the Challenge three weeks or more prior to the Challenge end date, they must submit four final “maintenance” photos. If selected, Participant must maintain their success to the satisfaction of the judges, to be eligible for consideration as a finalist.
