The Body by Vi Challenge is a lifestyle transformation platform that offers a fun, simple and rewarding way to achieve personal health and fitness goals. In July, each celebrity announced their Challenge goal in front of more than 15,000 ViSalus™ Promoters at the company's "Vitality" event in Miami. Since the event, each celebrity has been training, eating healthier, and pushing to achieve their individual fitness goals. While they have their own personal reasons for taking on a 90-Day Challenge, they all have committed to striving for a goal, encouraging others to do the same, and 90 days later, coming out on the other side – changed, improved and stronger.

Taylor Armstrong

Armstrong's personal Challenge goal is to complete a 100-mile bike ride while also raising awareness for domestic abuse. It's an admirable undertaking considering she hasn't been on a bicycle since college. Armstrong is 100% committed, not only for herself, but to benefit victims of domestic abuse. "I am really motivated and excited to complete a 100-mile bike ride and use the event to raise funds for local domestic abuse shelters," said Armstrong. "It will not only be a personal accomplishment for me, but will also help to generate awareness for people who suffer from domestic abuse," added Armstrong.

Having not actively worked out in more than six years, she admits that it is a little more challenging than she thought. Her fitness training so far has included a lot of time "in the saddle" both on the road and in spin classes, as well as cross-training and a range of core and strength exercises. She is also using the Body by Vi Fit Kit for the added nutrition she needs to give her energy and build muscle strength. Every morning before her work out, she drinks GO™ Instant Energy and then throughout the day, drinks two protein-rich Vi-Shape™ Shakes to keep her energized and feeling strong.

Percy Miller "Master P"

Miller is challenging families across the country to get fit along with him and his family as part of his Body by Vi 90-Day "Miller Family" Challenge. His goal is to lose 20 pounds and then he plans on challenging his friend and pro-ball player LeBron James to go one-on-one on the basketball court. "In America, we have so many people who have heart disease, high blood pressure and suffer from obesity and it's important that we encourage our families to eat right and exercise," said Master P.

Before beginning the Challenge, Miller had not worked out in more than six months but with his son Romeo's encouragement, he is training regularly at a local boxing gym doing a series of cardio exercises, core work, agility, jump roping, and sparring for at least an hour. Miller is also using the Body by Vi Core Kit for the nutritional support his body needs to maintain his intense workouts and lose the weight. This includes drinking Vi-Shape Shakes for the extra protein his body needs to fuel his muscles and power through a workout while also helping to burn fat and curb his hunger.

Hulk Hogan

Hulk, who turned 59 this year and recently underwent surgery, found himself wrestling with a new challenge. The physical setback of surgery and the reality of getting older caused his fitness level to suffer considerably. So in true Hulk fashion, he set a goal to get his "12 pack" back and has been hitting the gym hard to achieve his 90-day Challenge goal. "I've been talking the talk but not walking the walk", says Hulk. "I haven't been respecting myself so this Challenge has allowed me to re-dedicate myself to being healthy and consistent. It is a lifestyle change."

In addition to challenging workouts, Hulk is using the Body by Vi Fit Kit for added nutrition to power through his workout and help build lean muscle. He drinks GO™ Instant Energy before a workout and also makes two Vi-Shape Shakes every day to keep his energy levels up and his appetite down.

At the end of their Body by Vi 90-Day Challenge, Armstrong, Miller and Hogan will be attending ViSalus' National Success Training event in St. Louis on November 2-4. Here they will share their challenges and celebrate their journey along with thousands of other ViSalus Promoters from all over the country. National.vi.com
