IsaBody Challenge Criteria

CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

The IsaBody Challenge is a 16-week body transformation challenge for Isagenix Associates and Preferred Customers. Participants submit four ‘Before’ photos and use Isagenix products (500BV) for 16 weeks. Participants then submit four ‘After’ photos and a 250-500 word essay about their transformation within 2 weeks of their Challenge end date. Depending on the date the participant finishes their Challenge and uploads their materials, they may have to submit an additional four ‘Maintenance’ Photos to be considered for prizes and judging.

Participants who complete all requirements of the Challenge have the chance to win their share of over $200,000 in cash, prizes, and trips. Everyone who completes a Challenge is rewarded with an Achievement Award, which includes a $200 product coupon, t-shirt and certificate.

    • Participants should take the photos using a white or light-colored solid backdrop for optimal visibility.

500BV Product Purchase Minimum

A minimum of 500 BV of Isagenix products is required during your 16 week Challenge period.

  • Each Isagenix product for purchase has a corresponding Business Value (BV).
  • Only BV accumulated between your start and end dates (on or after your start date in your Back Office and on or before your official 16 week end date) will count toward your BV requirement.
  • Both wholesale and autoship orders count toward the BV requirements.
  • Orders placed before your Back Office start date do not count toward your BV minimum.
  • Sales made through your retail site do not count toward your BV minimum.
  • Participants must be an active Isagenix Associate (or Preferred Customer) and remain active through the duration of their 16-week Challenge. Active status within Isagenix requires that you order a minimum of 100BV every 30 calendar days.
  • The way you accumulate your BV for the Challenge is personal preference. You can increase your autoship each month to 125BV+, or you can keep your autoship as is and make an additional order(s) during your 16 weeks to meet your 500BV minimum. You can see how much BV you have accumulated by look in the Orders section of your Back Office.

“MAINTENANCE” PHOTOS AND WEIGHT

Participants who upload their “After” Photos/essay and finish their Challenge period three weeks or more prior to the Challenge Judging must submit four final “maintenance” photos that must comply with all guidelines as set forth for the “before” and “after” photos.

These will be used during judging to verify that the Challenge results have been maintained through the end of the judging period. To be considered in the judging process as Finalists or Honorable Mention, participants must maintain or improve their results. Not maintaining results does not disqualify you from the Achievement Award, but all participants requiring ‘Maintenance Photos’ must submit them in order to complete their Challenge and receive the achievement award.

Review the Challenge Timeline for clarification

  • Dates requiring Maintenance Photos:
    • Celebration Challenge completed prior to May 30; Maintenance Photos will be required between June 13 and June 20.
    • New Year Kick Off Challenge completed prior to October 18; Maintenance Photos will be required between November 1 and November 8.
    • Top Achievers Challenge completed prior to February 7; Maintenance Photos will be required between February 21 and February 28.

    The date you submit your completion materials, not your 16 week end date, determines the judging period you are placed in and if you will owe “Maintenance” photos.

    • 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.
