Congratulations Bryan Mataya on winning the first e84 EDGE Challenge! You can view e84 FUEL Challenge Winner Ron Sineni here and view e84 BURN Challenge Winner LeeAnn Beckwith here.
“My e84 goal was to lose 15lbs, increase my energy and stamina while losing 15% body fat in the process, so I joined the e84 EDGE category. I decided to take this challenge because as a 44-year-old single father to an 8-year-old daughter, I had found myself becoming too busy to really watch the food that I was eating and in turn I started becoming a skinny fat guy… meaning I started to lose some muscle but yet I started to gain a spare tire around the waist. I looked good with my shirt on so I kept it on as often as I could. I would joke that even when I took a shower I would leave my shirt on. It’s not that I needed to really lose the weight I just needed to rearrange where the weight was going.
“I have always prided myself on the fact that I would go to the gym and would consider myself an above average athlete in every sport. I have always been active, but we all know how life tends to get in the way. Before you know it, those small little changes that you have done in the wrong direction tend to catch up with you and you really don’t realize it ’til it’s too late. So, what better way to get a hold of my health and also be held accountable for it, than to join this e84 Challenge.
“Josh puts it so well, that if you just make a few small changes everyday over a period of time, you will see a difference. This challenge allowed me to be held accountable for the goals that I wanted to obtain.
“When I started this challenge I was 218lbs and 28% body fat and after 84 days I was at 199 lbs and 11% body fat. I have not been under 200 lbs in 15 years, and let me tell you how great it feels! I have so much more energy to keep up with my 8-year-old daughter. As a matter of fact, she needs help keeping up with ME!!! The only problem is none of my pants fit me any more, but I guess that’s a great problem to have.
“My favorite morning Evolv shake is pretty simple, Evolv vanilla shake with the Evolv water and 2 oz’s of the Evolv Ultimate. It’s quick, simple and most of all it taste great and gives me just enough energy to get thru my morning workout with no problem.
“What I tell everyone that I share this challenge with is that these products are not only all-natural, healthy and good, they absolutely WORK and taste great! Because who wants to take something everyday that doesn’t taste good?
“The culture that surrounds this Challenge is probably the key to you achieving your e84 goal. If it wasn’t for the encouragement of the people on our team and the inspiration that everyone gives each other. I could say without a doubt, I would NOT have reached my goal by myself. We all need someone to be accountable to and my team has helped me keep myself accountable to my e84 goal.
“My next e84 goal is to enter into the crossfit competition in 2012 and with the help of my team, the Evolv products, and of course a little hard work on my part, I will continue to achieve all of my e84 goals in the future. This challenge has definitely change my life both physically, mentally and we can’t forget financially…LOL.. gotta love FREE products and a FREE Benz!!!!!”
