Active/Fitness Female Challenge Champion Cheryl Robinson has gone from zero to 60, more specifically, from cosmetologist to body builder—fast, and she’s not letting anything get in her way.
“I’m in the Best Shape of my Life”
“Because of Vi, I’ve achieved my greatest goal—to become a competitive body builder,” says Cheryl. “I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished and at 47 years old, I’m in the best shape of my life.”
Cheryl started out as a Vi Customer in 2012, but by the next year she was so inspired by The Challenge she enrolled as a Promoter and went public with her goal to lose 20 lbs. Vi gave her the platform she needed to develop healthy eating habits and sculpt the body of her dreams.
Cheryl worked with a trainer, first to lose the weight, then to build muscle. She plateaued at one point, but her strategy of incorporating a second Vi-Shape® Shake daily eventually helped her drop 22 lbs. and build 5 lbs. of muscle.
“I worked with a second trainer to get stage ready and competed in my first figure competition then competed in an all natural body building competition and won second place in the masters figure category,” says Cheryl.
Nutrition and training go hand in hand for Cheryl, whose favorite Vi products include Vi-Shape, Nutra-Cookie® in Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter, ViSalus GO® and NEON Energy Drink®.
“I start my day with Vi-Shape, drink GO or NEON pre-workout then follow my workout with another Vi-Shape Shake for nutritional support and protein,” says Cheryl, adding, “I snack smart throughout the day and for dinner I choose grilled chicken or tilapia and color my plate with steamed veggies like broccoli, carrots, zucchini, red and yellow bell peppers and French green beans. I also enjoy a complex carb like sweet potatoes, brown rice, beans or lentils.”
Cheryl makes time to workout five days a week. Her workouts often include weight training and cardio then 20 minutes in the sauna to decompress.
“My goal back in college was to become a body builder and I’ve finally achieved that,” says Cheryl. “I’m excited to use the Challenge Champion platform to gain additional exposure in the natural body building circuit and further my mission to inspire others to lead active, fit and healthy lives.”
