You hear time and again of the many ways that Vi changes lives. For McKenna Jolly, Vi opened the doors that led to victories–plural.
That’s because before McKenna became a 2014 Active/Fitness Challenge Champion, she also became a martial arts world champion in the National Blackbelt League World Games thanks to a sponsorship from Vi.
“Our family had a lot of financial challenges at one point so I didn’t end up having the funds to go to New York, which is where the world games were held,” says McKenna. Through Vi’s sponsorship she received a free Challenge Kit and Vi Gear.
“I went there and won my world title with Vi on my back,” says McKenna, who competed in a uniform with The Challenge logo printed on the back.
With that win under her belt, McKenna went on to become a Challenge Champion at NST Louisville.
“It was absolutely surreal. It was such a blessing to be up there and to have the support from the crowd,” says McKenna.
“I took on The Challenge just before going to the world games. All I did was add [Vi-Shape®] shakes to my lifestyle. By simply replacing my breakfast with a shake and adding a shake after my workout in the evening, I put on 6 lbs. of muscle in a month,” McKenna explains.
Today, McKenna has lost a total of 15 lbs. and built 10 lbs. of muscle.

PROJECT 10™ Challenge goals can be (or include) weight loss, building lean muscle or improving energy and endurance. Every participant should consider his or her personal circumstances and create goals that are both reasonable and achievable. Vi discourages rapid and extreme weight loss, which can actually be unhealthy and emphasizes that safe and sustainable weight loss is never achieved without exercise and sensible eating. Persons with preexisting medical conditions should consult a healthcare professional before embarking on any fitness, health or weight-loss program.
