Breakthrough is defined as a sudden, dramatic, and important development. In Mexico, I experienced my breakthrough moment. It was when Jason Camper said “we are in the business of health and though our products are amazing they only work as hard as you do”. Although I felt the benefits of thrive in my experience prior, I realized- I had been enjoying the work it was faithfully doing FOR me without matching any effort of my own. I had been using a bandaid in an area I needed help with and it was time to get serious about my health and weightloss. March 7th I uploaded my first picture. I started my commitment to myself and system while digging deep into the journey of losing weight that has held me down for 33 years. Weight from my past, from aches and discomfort, from mistreating my body and from my excuses. I already knew it could energize me and lift my brain fog but now I was ready for breakthrough!! I started each day with my 3 step system and sculpt religiously. Taking the energy it provided and put it to work by moving my body and becoming active. I allowed products like Boost and Balance to help me from the inside out while Activate and Form energized and recovered me after my daily exercise! I’m thankful to be on this journey. It led me to the woman inside I thought was just a lost cause. I’m thankful I can look in the mirror and say “it can happen for me too”! I have used my journey to be a voice to women all over who have given up on their own breakthrough to remind them anything is possible. I ripped the bandaid off and I’m experiencing my breakthrough!
AGE 34 & UNDER DIVISION
In 2014, I was a Division 1 College Athlete, what I consider my prime. In 2015, I joined corporate america, and forgot about my health. In 2016, I gained weight from sitting behind a desk and not caring for myself. In 2017, I was laid off and had to scramble with two jobs, there was no time to focus on me. In 2018, I had my first baby, my health was still not my priority. At the end of 2019, I had my second child and hit a weight that shocked me. I had a lifestyle that was different than the athlete I once was.
In 2020, I had to change, not only for me but for my family. I discovered Thrive in February and dove right into working out. Then out came the Ultimate Thriver, I didn’t want to take such exposed photos, I was ashamed of my body.
On March 27, right before photos were due I decided to break out of my comfort zone. I took the first picture, and made the commitment to use these 3 steps to fuel a change. Every morning since photo 1 was taken I have woken up to my capsules, a Lifestyle Mix that helps to manage my appetite, and the Black Label DFT that enhances the nutritional support I am getting from Thrive.
In May, I submitted my halfway photo and I feel so much closer to the athlete I was. This competition has been much more than a physical change, it has made me stronger, more confident, a better Mom, a happier wife, and improved my lifestyle habits. It is a competition that has led me to a community, it’s not simply a challenge that will end here.
My goal is to make a new prime in my life.
Quite frankly, the announcement of the Ultimate Thriver Challenge helped me pull my head out of my rear end! Before this, I had let myself go. I was overweight and out of shape. I have lost several family members, including my mom, at way too young of an age due to health issues. This journey made me realize I don’t want my family to go through that; I needed to start taking better care of myself and make my health a priority. My granddaughter is 16 months old and I want to be around as long as possible for her, my kids and my future grandkids. I need to be a great role model so they grow up knowing the importance of good health and taking care of yourself. I can’t expect them to make smart food choices if I can’t do it myself.
I have been on many weight loss journeys, the first being when I was 17 years old and preparing for Marine Corps boot camp. I always do well, but this challenge has been like no other. I have taken my 3 steps like normal, but added Sculpt and Balance to my daily routine. I drink Activate with Boost in the afternoons and on days that I do my long runs (training for my first Marine Corps Marathon), I have a Circulate. The way my body has transformed with the addition of Sculpt to my Thrive Experience is like nothing I have experienced before! That’s been the biggest game changer for me!
During this challenge, I have lost a significant amount of weight, 17% body fat and 10.25" around my stomach. I feel awesome, I’m proud of my progress and I have really enjoyed this journey.
I AM...committed to continuing to better myself long after this challenge!
Have you ever looked in the mirror and not recognized the person looking back? That was me not long ago. My BMI was 29.8 and I was overweight. How did I get here? Who was this woman in the mirror? I was a tired, stressed and overweight mom who was struggling with simple duties. My body and my health had not been a priority and it showed. Don’t get me wrong I’m all about loving yourself and the body you have. But when your health is negatively affected and you have no energy for family and your business, it’s time to take action.
I knew I had 50lbs to lose so in Oct 2019, my journey to better health began. I used Thrive off and on and managed to lose 27lbs from Oct to March but lacked discipline, I stalled out many times and nearly gave up.
BUT then I saw the Ultimate Thriver Challenge and I told myself this is exactly what I need to finally reach my goal. I decided it’s time to turn on my autoship and give this my all.
I ordered the women’s capsules, chocolate Lifestyle Shake mix, DFT and later added Sculpt. I have reached the end of this challenge with mixed feelings - sad that it’s over but very proud of what I have accomplished. I am down an additional 23lbs. I gave it my ALL and felt amazing while doing it!
Thanks to the motivation from this challenge and the premium nutrition Thrive has given me, I’ve lost a total of 50lbs - meaning I have made it to my goal! I’m feeling amazing, sleeping better and have energy to spare. I now have a healthy BMI and I’m at a normal weight. My life has truly changed forever!
I’ve been using the Thrive Experience for a while now, but 2019, was the end of a long road of me being in a negative place. Yes, my vitamins are amazing, yes they’ve done wonders for me, but when your mental state isn’t where it needs to be that can sometimes take over! I was eating and drinking junk and gained extra weight, and being over 30 years old it takes more work to be at my more comfortable physique!
When Le-Vel announced the ultimate Thriver challenge I knew this would be the perfect time to stay consistent, stay accountable, and get results! My 3 steps never let me down, so I needed to show up and be a product of the product!
For the first 8 weeks of the challenge I wasn’t as active as I had planned to be, but I used DUO Burn and Sculpt 3 times a day and I could physically see the inches falling off! For the last 4 weeks, I switched to Ultra 2.0, Ultra has always been my favorite DFT! The energy and weight management it gives me, literally gives me life! I continued Sculpt, and added work outs in my last 2 weeks. My trainer could see the major changes in just 2 weeks! I would train 5 days a week, and was always on top of my pre and post workout from the fit line! I absolutely love these products and I absolutely love how this challenge really had me step up my fitness game!
This is just the beginning of a whole new journey! Thank you Le-Vel for the opportunity!
Initially, when I decided to embark upon the Thrive Challenge, I decided this was my opportunity to really test myself and see what I can do. I made the commitment to myself that I can do anything for 12 weeks and I wanted TRANSFORMATION.
Prior to Thrive, I had been dealing with several health challenges that were negatively affecting my physical and mental well-being. What I don’t often speak of is growing up Amish. Growing up and in my teenage years, I always wondered, “What if?” “What could I be?” “Could I make an impact?” I wanted to inspire and most of all I wanted to test my “what if’s.”
This challenge gave me the platform and excuse to do just that. I was all in!!! I have 2 kids and wanted to motivate and inspire everyone I could. My gym was closed for most of this competition but I was more determined than ever to prove to everyone that no matter what life throws at you, if you are UNFEARED and DETERMINED, you can do anything.
I always wanted to have abs, and when this challenge came up I told myself this is it, at the end of 12 weeks I will have abs. I WILL have the body I always wanted. And in just 12 weeks time (with the help of the 3-Steps, Burn DFTs and Sculpt Capsules), I look at these photos and I can’t even believe this was possible. Although I’m shocked when I look at the results that I have obtained through this challenge, I can tell you that what you see is only a small reflection of the TRANSFORMATION that took place. It gave me confidence. I’m just so grateful!!
These 12 weeks have been the most rewarding journey I’ve ever experienced. I decided to put my health first this year! The 1-2-3 steps, Sculpt and Balance helped me not only to slim down and feel amazing but these products helped clear my negative thoughts and taught me to love myself again. To be proud of what my body does for me.
The Ultimate Thriver contest pushed me to the next level. I am so grateful to have mental clarity during uncertain times. My journey is special to me because I’ve been able to show and teach my teenage daughter body positivity after many years of negativity and hating my health choices.
I am a changed woman. I am proud!
AGE 35 & OVER DIVISION
The Ultimate Thriver Competition has been a huge blessing to me in many ways. It provided me with the much needed motivation to surpass the goals I set out for myself - to be a healthy, positive example to my children. In the beginning I struggled to complete my workouts, the encouragement and inspiration from my two beautiful girls, ignited a fire in me. Seeing my struggle they made “You can do it Mom” and “Go Mom Go” signs, to cheer me on. Knowing they were watching and wanting this for me, I could not give up. I kept my eye on the prize and continued to workout 3 days a week no matter how hard it was to complete. I achieved this transformation by committing to the three-step THRIVE experience (the THRIVE-W Lifestyle Capsules, the Lifestyle Mix, and the DFT DUO BURN) every morning with Sculpt, maintaining a balanced diet, following a regular workout routine, and taking FORM for post-workout recovery. Reflecting on the last twelve weeks I am extremely proud of myself. Physically, I can now work out without struggling, I’ve lost inches and pounds while acquiring strength and definition. Mentally, I’ve never felt better. My confidence and self-esteem is at an all-time high. I’ve developed a positive mental mindset and truly believe there is no goal that I am incapable of achieving! I see this attitude change reflected in my beautiful little girls. They look at me and see a happy, energized, confident and HEALTHY momma. Over the last twelve weeks they have seen firsthand how hard work, dedication and encouragement can pay off exponentially if you just believe in yourself! I am so grateful for the lifestyle change and overall transformation this competition has brought about in me. I am an Ultimate Thriver.

It’s crazy to think at 200lbs I was actually going to consultations for a tummy tuck. I have struggled with my weight all my life. I was at the point where I had just come to terms that this was me! I was already in the gym with my active husband, at least I was maintaining my weight, right? Along came the Ultimate Thriver Challenge that my friends encouraged me to do, I mean why not humor them! I have had my struggles of course during this time. My body started hurting when I was moving and even hurting when I wasn’t moving. Not sure how many muscles I didn’t use before this, but now I can move in ways I did when I was younger, somewhat! I honestly do not want to lose this feeling. I have been taking the three steps with Balance at night for a while now. Added Boost and Restore not long after the challenge started. With this amazing nutrition, balanced diet and moving my body I now can say I am the Ultimate Thriver! This contest is important to me because I can’t let my husband win! Just kidding, he can win second place! I think the most important part of this challenge was to show myself that “I can do it”. I can achieve my goals with the right tools in my life. I want to be able to continue to move my body, I don’t want my husband moving on in this life without me actively by his side. I want to be able to be present and active in my children and grandchildren's life also, not just sitting and watching their life pass by me.
My name is Alvino Molina and I just want to say that I love my thrive. When this Ultimate Thriver Contest came out I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it, because I am going to be 60 years old in a couple of months. My journey oh yes it's been amazing I can not even begin to tell you how I feel. People have asked me why I took the challenge, l then said to them I could use the money. But now it’s not about the money I just love the way I feel. I get up every morning, work out for an hour and half and then I go to work all day. I can’t believe what thrive has done for me. I get up every morning and take my 2 capsules I also take 2 capsules of sculpt wait 20 minutes, drink my shake and put on my DFT and head out to work after my workout . You ask why this is important for me,well let me tell you 26 years ago I started my business Molina Handyman Service which is now known as Molina Construction LLC. When I started this business almost every one that I talked to told me that I would fail and that I wouldn’t make it as a businessman, and yet here I sit today 26 years later still in business with my son by my side. I believe you all know him as David the dancing contractor, I just want to end with this - I love my thrive, I am in the best shape of my life, and it will only get better. Thank you very much for the opportunity you have given me.
My THRIVE journey was about finding myself again after gaining over 100 pounds from having my Son in February 2018 and dealing with mental and emotional stress. I used the 3 steps plus sculpt daily to give my body everything it needs to function properly and to give myself the energy to get through the day without crashing. I have been able to get outside and spend time with my Son thanks to THRIVE. Even though this competition is over, I will continue to use my 3 steps and continue to improve myself.
Hey my name is Aaron Hart from Seattle, Washington. I have been thriving for 4 years and I've loved these products since I started! I was a day one thriver and I've never looked back. I've had a blast with the Ultimate Thriver Competition! It has really given me the opportunity to put these products and my body to the test. I believe I should always challenge myself anyway possible to be the best version of me I can be. My body was telling me it's that time to take my fitness to the next level and really bring it. I've been maintaining but that is not enough. I want greatness and I knew it was time to get serious and discipline myself in ways I never had before. Being consistent working out 4-6 times a week, and doing the 3 steps every morning on an empty stomach along with Sculpt, and Balance at night, and eating better I feel like a new person. I lost 10 pounds my first 6 weeks of the challenge, and another 10 the following 6 weeks, and I now can fit comfortably into clothes that I haven't worn in years, and even those clothes are loose on me. I want to inspire people that it is possible in your 40's to be in ultimate shape and be HAPPY!! I love the Thrive Life!! I would like to thank Le-Vel for these awesome products and this opportunity.
Even though the ULTIMATE THRIVER competition is over, we hope you’ll check out all of the incredible transformations above (and many others on Facebook and Instagram), showing the powerful combination of THRIVE products with focus and determination.
