Military Vets Share Stories about Losing and Winning at the Same Time


Sometimes losing feels just as good as winning—especially when it comes to weight-loss and building a successful business. And the military community is full of those kinds of stories.

Our military veteran Promoters and Customers make up a large cross section of those invested in our Vi mission and products. Take, for example, former Corporal and Combat Veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Mike Brando.

“The Challenge has completely helped me regain my military physique,” he says. “I’ve lost over 109 lbs. I’ve built 24 lbs. of muscle. I’m also a Challenge Champion. My earnings have totaled $100,000 a year for the last three years.”

Another committed Vi Promoter, former Staff Sergeant in the US Army and disabled veteran Gonzalo Guerra, served 10 years and three combat tours overseas. He came to ViSalus with a desire to transform his life and inspire other soldiers. He took home over $500,000 in just four years.

Tom McCoy, retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, flew as a navigator for 20 years, but his greatest journey to date has been the path he has traveled with Vi.

“When I joined The Challenge I was 213 lbs, lost 30 lbs. then put on 10 lbs. of muscle and I feel healthier today than I did when I was 30 years old,” he says. “At 67 years old, I still run about 10 miles a week. My lifetime earnings are just short of $1,000,000.”
