ViSalus 2-Star Ambassador Jason French and his successful Challenge Group is a perfect example of ‘if you build it, they will come.’ He started with Vi in 2012 and in July he challenged his daughter’s daycare teachers. Soon word spread and more teachers and parents joined Jason’s new Challenge group, which now fluctuates between 12 and 15 people who meet twice weekly.
“I focus on cardio to support weight loss and resistance exercises to tone muscles,” says Jason. “We do weekly weigh-ins and provide the biggest ‘loser’ with free Vi product. I also publicly recognize people on social media so they enjoy additional support from the Vi Community.”
Challenge Groups have not only helped Jason share weight-loss and fitness tips with others, he has also enjoyed greater retention among Customers who are really seeing results.
“I’ve gotten a lot of exposure in the community,” says Jason, adding, “Someone new joins every week. I have added 20 Customers and gained five Promoters because of Challenge Groups.”
From Vi-Shape® and Vi Crunch® to NEON Energy Drink® and Vi Bites®, Jason makes sure to sample popular Vi products pre- and post workout. He invites Challenge Group members to larger, market wide Challenge Groups monthly as well. Now his Customers and team members run Challenge Groups of their own in addition to participating in Jason’s group.
“ViSalus has changed my life in a number of ways,” says Jason. “The Challenge and now Challenge Groups have given me the time and freedom to be a better person, husband and father. It has been one of the most gratifying experiences because I’ve been able to help people from all walks of life transform across Life, Health and Prosperity.”
