Life-changing Nutrition: Elite Performance

When we last checked in on Joshua Fleagle of St. Marys, Ohio, he was 17 years old and had qualified for the 2012 Olympic trials in the 50 meter freestyle. He trained for more than five hours per day and had been taking Reliv products for two years, thanks to the direction of his parents, Ambassadors Marscia & Jeff Fleagle. His nutrition and training regimen continue to pay big dividends in the pool…

Making a Commitment: As a high school sophomore, I played varsity lacrosse. At the beginning of junior year, I verbally committed to play Division 1 lacrosse at a university in Connecticut. I knew I needed to get bigger, stronger and faster if I was going to succeed at that level.

Doing the Work: I started getting up at 6 am every day to run before class. I overhauled my diet to include fresh salads, whole wheat bread and thick ProVantage shakes from my mom, who is a Reliv Ambassador.

Worth the Hustle: I was injured during the first game of the season last year, but was diligent about therapy and nutrition to get me back on the field. I was cleared to play again after only 10 days and we ended up winning the State Championship! I also was named an All-American and am team captain this year. With Reliv, I’m ready to tackle college!

I was struck by an IED while serving my country and I thought that was the end. They flew me back to Bethesda Naval Hospital and my prognosis was grim. I went from 220 pounds down to 145 and spent 44 days in a coma. It was a very rough ride for me.

Someone introduced me to Reliv and it changed my life. I started with Arthaffect® and immediately felt improvement from the soreness from my latest seizure. Reliv’s recuperating powers aren’t miraculous; they’re scientific. Reliv gave me the courage to come back after being told I couldn’t walk, after being told that I was out of the game.

I started doing judo again and by 2010 I had secured a gold medal and a world title. I’ve been in martial arts all my life and I’m here to tell you that this stuff works. Thank you, Reliv, for giving me my life back. I’m training for the 2016 Summer Olympics and can’t wait to be on the podium drinking my Reliv shake!

Master Greg James is the head instructor at the Agoge Martial Arts Academy. He is a Special Forces combat veteran, US Navy, with an honorable discharge. He specializes in military and law enforcement training, and regularly instructs the Secret Service, FBI, Green Beret, Army, Naval Academy, US Marine Corps, SWAT and many local law enforcement agencies.

Inflammation and the Changing Face of Sports Nutrition

Reliv Ant-Inflammatory Performance Nutrition

Redefining Sports Nutrition

The term “sports nutrition” invokes images of buff gym rats lugging around kegs of protein powder, as well as lithe distance runners throwing back concoctions of carbs and electrolytes en route to the finish line. Yes, these types of athletes have unique nutritional needs and use specialty supplements to support their performance goals. But sports nutrition can benefit more than just elite athletes. In fact, you don’t have to be an “athlete” at all to benefit from the research and products labeled for sport. Continue reading “Inflammation and the Changing Face of Sports Nutrition”

Because of Reliv: I Feel Better than Ever

Gorman-web
Sue Gorman-Mastrovito from Algonac, MI shares her thoughts on how Reliv got her to where she wanted to be.

I was not the dress size that I wanted to be when I began my journey three years ago to become healthier. I started drinking Reliv shakes and working out at a gym. I was able to drop a size and then two more when I added kickboxing to my regimen! It’s a huge accomplishment for me and I feel better than ever when I slip on my skinny jeans and they are buttoned, zipped and comfortable. I am now healthy inside and out through exercise and Reliv!

Because of Reliv: I’m Optimistic About My Future

Kendig-web
Adam Kendig of Myrtle Beach, SC shares his story on how Reliv gave him a newfound hope and confidence in his health.

I was skeptical about Reliv before I gave it a try last February. Then I noticed that my blood pressure was down for the first time in my life on only one capsule of LunaRich X per day. I lost 16 pounds in two months and found a renewed optimism about my health. I decided to try Reliv shakes as well and couldn’t stop telling people about my results. My wife and I initially signed up as Distributors to get a discount on the product, but now we’re working toward replacing our incomes with our Reliv business. This is an opportunity to help others find the same good health we have.
