Sometimes, the solutions to life problems are found deep down the challenging moments. The idea of coming up with weight management products, which led to the founding of Herbalife Nutrition in 1980, came at a time when Mark Hurges’ mother had been hit hard by the effects of poor weight management strategies. This ultimately caused her death. At the time he founded Herbalife, Hurges began with a protein shake, a single product that he sold from the trunk of his car. His goal was to change the nutrition world. His business was structured to employ multi-level marketing strategy to reach out to more people faster while empowering others.
Headquartered at Los Angeles, California; this global multilevel marketing corporation deals with weight management, personal care, sports nutrition, and nutrition supplement products. Like any other growing business venture, Herbalife has had its share of challenges. These range from the complaints made by Food and Drug Administration Board to the $200 million penalty imposed by the U.S Federal Trade Commission on allegations of it being a pyramid scheme. Herbalife has, however, taken up these challenges positively to improve their products and enhance their market beyond borders. Currently, the corporation prides itself in operating in over 95 countries worldwide. The company has more than 8,000 employees globally and an additional 3.2 million independent distributors.
Christopher Emmanuel, a member of the Advisory Board of Herbalife Nutrition Fitness, shares his story on a journey to enthrall members of his community in the Philippines on how proper nutrition and fitness would help them live a healthier life. He says that healthy eating, sports training, and exercise have been part of his lifestyle, a thing that he attributes to his mother and father; a nutritionist and fitness coach respectively. Giving his view on how fitness complements a healthy diet, Emmanuel argues that for the body to have strength and energy, it needs physical activity. It is, however, food that fuels that particular activity. Emmanuel has a great love for strength training. Thus, he mainly focuses on weightlifting in his daily workouts. Through this, he attests that his body gets in good shape. Besides keeping a healthy diet, he supplements it with the Nutrition products from Herbalife.
Emmanuel maintains that healthy life is paramount. Each one is supposed to fix the time for physical exercise amidst the busy work schedules. From his point of view, even just fifteen minutes a day is sufficient to go through the five major categories of training such as the hinge, squat, push, carry, and pull. It all calls for discipline and will.
