World Record Holder is ProArgi-9+ Advocate

Friday, February 26, 2016 , ,



The heaviest giant log squat in recorded history is 1,000 lbs. The most concrete bricks broken at one time with a single strike is 60. The heaviest fire truck harness pull is 36,000 lbs.  What do these world records have in common? ProArgi-9+ advocate and 54-year-old Strongman competitor Randy Richey of Scottsville, Kentucky.

For 30 years, Randy has been defying seemingly impossible stunts of strength in various weight lifting competitions, but it wasn’t until his late 30s that he entered the Strongman realm.

Randy currently holds eight world records and performs with his Strongman group Omega Force Strength Team in 75-100 carnivals, fairs, church functions and other events up and down the East Coast every year. They bend steel, pull tractor trailers, pull stacks of massive tires, bench press cars, bench press people, and flip cars over.

In 2013, Omega Force appeared on America’s Got Talent and impressed the judges enough to earn a pass to the second round in Las Vegas. Their episode was the most viewed of the season and aired five times because of its popularity.

That same year, Randy survived an invasive surgery, and his doctors were sure he would never be able to lift even moderately heavy objects, let alone compete. However, his love of training pushed him to maintain a healthy lifestyle so he could get back in the gym. After giving himself ample recovery time, Randy squatted 805 lbs. for 10 reps. As proof of his doctor’s amazement, a photo of Randy pushing through these reps is hanging in their office.

“I’m doing everything I did in my 30s and 40s, including training and competing,” Randy said.
According to Randy, one of the keys to maintaining strength of any proportion, especially for lifters who are not in their 20s and 30s anymore, is to make sure blood is circulating optimally. Muscle recovery is highly dependent on blood reaching the muscles and helping to build them back up.

“I recommend ProArgi-9+ to everyone,” Randy said. “There is a 78-year-old gentleman on the Omega Force team who is excited to see what it can do for him.”

Elite Honours Spotlights

Thursday, February 25, 2016 ,



With the Elite Honours program in full swing, Team Members have been building stronger businesses through defined monthly goals.

In January, 312 Team Members in Europe became Elite Honours Qualified. That means at least 312 new distributors were enrolled and more than 1,000 customers latched onto Synergy products. Team Members who are becoming Elite Honours Qualified have found that the Elite Honours earnings model is exactly what their businesses were missing.

Congratulations to the many who are finding success through Elite Honours thus far! Here are a few insights from our newest Elite Honours Qualifiers regarding their success with the system:

Regina & Antti Ahola, Finland

Regina and Antti Ahola’s experience with Elite Honors has taught them the importance of making and keeping commitments. It has also taught them to follow through with their plans to achieve satisfying short-term goals. This is more gratifying than looking at long-term goals that may seem overwhelming when considered all at once.

Regina and Antti know how important it is to train and support an effective group of individuals. When the team is willing to follow the plan and meet short-term goals, the workload seems more reasonable for all those involved.

““It’s important to commit to an objective at the beginning of the month. Once the groundwork is complete, following up and helping Team Members commit to products becomes easier and more rewarding,” Antti said.

Jacek Cieślik, Poland

Jacek Cieślik believes Elite Honors is the key to defining small, attainable goals, and it is through these goals that big dreams are brought to fruition. Poland has a slightly modified Elite Honors system that caters to the market’s individual needs, and Jacek believes this change has been helpful to increased success.

“Using Elite Honors, we have a better chance of a more dynamic development of our structures and extra financial bonuses as well,” he said.

Though Jacek was building a successful business before Elite Honors was introduced, he is uncovering the various benefits of this new system. Jacek believes the most important thing about Elite Honors is that it must be duplicated to be effective. As an increasing number of individuals become Elite Honors qualified, increase volume throughout organizations will follow.

Marlis Hoffmann, Germany

Marlis appreciates the fact that Elite Honors encourages building relationships with customers. By building trust with a customer, the customer will begin to trust the company. Eventually, a satisfied customer will become a satisfied partner. This creates a sustainable income model if all those in an organization have mutual respect for each other and create the right “chemistry” as Marlis call it.

“The customer structure takes time,” Marlis said. “With the 90-day money-back guarantee customers can take the time to find out for themselves if the products are worth using. I believe the products speak for themselves, and if the customers are satisfied, they will continue to purchase. It’s as simple as that.”

Congratulations January Go Elite Earners

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 , ,


An elite group of  Synergy Team Members went beyond the call of duty in January by not only becoming Elite Honors Qualified, but training those they sponsor to become Elite Honors Qualified. By fulfilling the Elite Honors requirements and sponsoring requirements, these Team Members earned Go Elite bonuses based on the number of Elite Honors Qualifiers they sponsored. Click here to learn more about the Go Elite Promotion.

Synergy WorldWide paid out £18,000 in Go Elite bonuses in December. Amazing! We hope that this payout will continue to increase until the Go Elite promotion ends on August 31, 2016.

Challenge yourself to Go Elite this month!

Cooking Tips for Heart Healthy Meals

Monday, February 22, 2016


Cooking a heart healthy meal, or cooking in general, may seem like a frightening task to some, especially to those who tend to burn everything including toast. However, a study completed by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states that the main ingredient in a healthier diet is cooking meals at home. By cooking at home you have control over your ingredients, your portion sizes, and the way that you cook your food.

A key to creating heart healthy meals is to cut down on cholesterol, fats, and salt found in many common ingredients. Create meals that keep your heart in mind by looking to these quick tips when dinnertime approaches.

Avoid Frying

Rather than deep frying or pan frying food, which causes ingredients to soak up unnecessary and unhealthy fats, look to these alternative options to keep the nutritional value of your ingredients intact:.

Stir-frying. High temperatures destroy some nutrients when cooking, so by stir-frying foods rapidly at high temperatures, food (especially vegetables) retain more of their nutrients, and since the cooking happens quickly, the foods don’t retain as much oil as they would with conventional deep frying techniques.

Broiling.  Broiling is a popular choice to prepare healthy meals since it uses direct heat to cook the food it require little to no oil in order to cook. Similarly, broiling methods melt the natural fat found in meat such as chicken or fish, and since most ovens have a broiling unit, it is a quick and reliable way to prepare meals.

Steaming. Unlike the options above, steaming is a form of cooking that requires no oil which makes it much better for your heart since it avoids adding unnecessary fats. Steaming is also great for keeping the original form and taste as well as most of the original nutrition, especially in vegetables. For example, steaming broccoli retains 81% of its vitamin C as opposed to only 30% when cooked in water.  And since preparation for steaming is minimal, you can create a healthy meal in very little time.

Quick Tip: Try to keep your meals simple. In many cases, simple recipes and ingredients lead to healthier, more natural meals while more complicated recipes that involve extra ingredients and specialized cooking methods could potentially be taking away from your meal’s nutrition and your time.

‘Tis the Season 

Try to avoid prepackaged seasonings as they usually contain a lot of salt. Selecting fresh herbs and preparing hand-made seasonings may seem foreign to you now, but in the long-term, you’ll be saving money by doing the preparation yourself. Your heart will thank you for avoiding all the extra sodium found in store-bought packages.

Quick Tip: Use citrus juice, peppers, or vinegar to add an extra level of flavor to your dishes. But be sure to use these sparingly as to not overpower the overall flavor of the meal.

Make Substitutions

Using low or non-fat yogurt instead of Sour Cream cuts out unnecessary fats in your meal. In ½ a cup of yogurt, you’ll get double the calcium and cut out 4 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat—a fat found in many store-bought foods that could be damaging to heart health over time.

Eliminating butter and replacing it with heart healthy olive oil can be incredibly beneficial to your arteries and overall heart health. Replacing one tablespoon of butter with one tablespoon of olive oil drops the fat content by 2 grams. Seven grams of unhealthy saturated fat will be replaced by 10 grams of heart healthy monounsaturated fats instead.

Make Extra

If you’re putting in the time and effort to prepare a heart healthy dish, don’t hesitate to go overboard. Making extra food gives you healthy snack options, as well as back-up meals in case you don’t feel like preparing something new after a long day. There’s nothing wrong with thinking ahead. This will help you create good habits that will keep your heart healthy and happy in the future.

Quick Tip: Making extra food is great, but just because you have extra food, doesn’t mean you need extra helpings. Set aside proper portions for snacks and meals by using small bags or plastic containers to stay organized and stay focused on eating until you are satisfied rather than eating until you are stuffed.

Austria's Fantastic 4 Earn Go Elite 10

Friday, February 19, 2016



Austria is leading Europe in Elite Honors qualifiers and Go Elite 10 bonuses. In January alone, Austria accounted for more than one-third of January’s 312 Elite Honors qualifiers in Europe. Undoubtedly, much of the country’s success with Elite Honors can be contributed to four leaders who have been encouraging and supporting their teams to execute Elite Honors goals in order to build fruitful businesses.

Each of the following Team Members earned the €1200 Go Elite 10 bonus by becoming Elite Honors qualified and sponsoring 10 Team Members who are also Elite Honors qualified. To learn more about Elite Honors and Go Elite qualifications, CLICK HERE.

FRANZ FRIESS
Pearl Executive

The magic words that will lead to success with Elite Honors are “do and do again,” Franz said. Team Members must be consistent in their actions to see success. This is Franz’s second time earning the Go Elite 10 bonus, and earning each bonus started with a commitment and a plan. In this plan, each step was written in detail, and each detail was necessary in achieving his goal. Once his plan was formulated, Franz did not delay in taking action. Now that Franz has proved Go Elite 10 is achievable, he is showing his partners how it’s achievable through his positive attitude and example.

“A month passes quickly, so without prompt action, the goal will pass you by,” Franz said. “Take action now and do what is necessary. I see it as my obligation to inform people that there is something that can influence their health and overall lifestyle for the better.”

CORINNA FRÖWEIN
Team Leader

Corinna knows the importance of having a plan and understands the quality of Synergy products, which are reasons that led her to earn her second Go Elite 10 bonus. Corinna strives to be in constant contact with her team. Scheduling appointments, making plans, and putting in an effort to keep everyone motivated are essential in “simply being a good example” and are the right practices to grow as a leader and a team.

The Elite Honors program has given Corinna many opportunities to grow and be successful as a leader. She knows that Synergy’s future lies in using Elite Honors.

“With the right plan, motivation, and sponsor support, I know that anything is possible,” she said. “I am 100% convinced.”

ROBERT SUPPAN
Team Elite

“Elite Honors, in my opinion, is the most direct way to success,” Robert said. “Setting Go Elite 10 in particular as a monthly target prompts maximum productivity in our team … I have the opportunitiy to do this, so  seized it.”

Robert is a passionate Synergy Team Member because wants to help others realize their dreams while optimizing their health and overall wellbeing. For Robert, it’s easy to work hard with Synergy because he has fun doing it. Robert is constantly learning from his business experiences and mistakes, and because of his setbacks he has learned to be a stronger person and a better leader. He has built a strong team that is striving for Elite Honors qualification right alongside him.

HEIDI KELBIC
Team Director

When people come together, the real value of Synergy’s Elite Honors earnings model becomes apparent.

“Together we are strong,” Heidi said. “I love our V3 products because … my health changed for the better and that's what I want to give people, a physical health and financial health.”

Heidi knows the importance of planning well in order to achieve a goal. Understanding the goal is vital to accomplishing it. Heidi’s work ethic and the support of her team allows her to excel in her market, giving her the opportunity to meet Go Elite 10 requirements. Supporting and building a thriving team has given Heidi incredible opportunities to grow as an individual, and she thanks Synergy for those opportunities every day.

Strengthening the Most Important Muscle

Friday, February 12, 2016


Like all muscles, your heart has to be trained in order to maintain its strength and conditioning. Whether it’s a quick run in the morning, half an hour on the stationary bike, or a leisurely walk around the neighborhood with the family dog, a few minutes of cardio each day can be a huge help to your hearts overall health.

Having a strong heart boosts your cardiovascular system, helps your body utilize oxygen more efficiently, lowers the risk for heart disease, and even allows the heart to better repair itself when damaged. There are four basic components to fitness: cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. Cardiovascular endurance is vital because it directly coincides with how effectively you can increase the other fitness elements.

Follow these tips to effectively train your heart to become stronger:

Engage Your Muscles
The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of moderate/vigorous aerobic exercise on 4-5 days per week. To get the most out of aerobics, focus on engaging the largest muscle groups (chest, legs, back, and abs) in a continuous, rhythmic manner. By doing this, your heart has to work harder to deliver oxygen-rich blood to muscle tissue, which results in a mini workout that supports and promotes your heart’s cardiovascular strength.

Cardio Intervals
If you’re looking to increase your heart health quickly, interval training is the way to go. Intervals work by incorporating high-intensity cardio with periods of lower, relaxed cardio. This results in an extremely effective and efficient workout. Studies have shown that doing 15 minutes of interval training has been linked to preventing heart disease as well as improving your overall fitness.
Bonus: Interval training burns more calories per minute than simply jogging on a treadmill.

Weight Training
Similar to interval training, weight training is an effective way to strengthen all the muscles in your body, especially your heart. The key to having a productive weight training session is limiting the rest period between sets. Most gym goers will rest for approximately 30-90 seconds between sets. However, if your goal is greater endurance (and a stronger heart) you’ll have to surrender some break time. But trust us, your heart will thank you.

Know When to Slow Down
Just as important as an performing an intense cardio session, is knowing when to slow down. Too much adrenaline in the system can be harmful to your heart’s health. If your heart rate is jumping up too high or you feel pain, lower the intensity of your workout to let your heart slow down, then once your heart has relaxed, up the intensity to a moderate pace, but don’t overexert yourself. Be sure to drink water during “cool down” periods since the heart tends to beat faster when the cells in your body are dehydrated.

Get Enough Sleep
According to studies, young and middle-aged adults who sleep for approximately 7 hours per night have less calcium build-up in their arteries than those who sleep less than 6 hours or more than 9 hours. Similarly, those who sleep more soundly during the night tend to have healthier arteries than those who don’t. Remember that the quality of your sleep is directly reflected in the quality of your training and ultimately influences how strong your heart is, or how strong it can become.

January 2016 Elite Honors Qualifiers

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 ,



The Elite Honors program is streamlining the way organizations do business with Synergy WordWide while maximizing each Team Member’s earning potential. Team Members following the program are seeing the extra rewards that are made possible through the Go Elite promotion as they continue doing what they’ve been doing all along—building their Synergy businesses.

Medical Expert Finds Joy with Synergy

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 , ,



Dr. Anthony Oketah has always been fascinated with the heart—the way it transports blood, the way it affects every other system and organ in the body, and its role in sustaining human life.

This passion turned him to cardiology and he has been practicing in this medical field for 15 years. However, there was something about his profession that was unsatisfying. He wanted to be able to do more for his patients. In addition, Dr. Oketah was born with an entrepreneurial spirit, always looking for an opportunity to create something bigger than himself, which is something that's more difficult to exercise as a doctor.

As he began to feel less fulfilled at work, Dr. Oketah began seeking a business opportunity that would allow him to do more and be more. Irish Team Director James Booth introduced ProArgi-9+ to Dr. Oketah and quickly Dr. Oketah knew he had found the opportunity he was looking for.

 “I went through every bit of the Synergy website; I studied everything,” Dr. Oketah said. “I was so impressed by the company, its culture, and its business views. The Compensation Plan is unbelievable and I have confidence in it.”

As a respected figure among Ireland’s medical experts, Dr. Oketah makes a powerful statement as a Synergy distributor because he has an intricate understanding of how the products work to support optimal health. After visiting Synergy WorldWide Headquarters, touring the manufacturing facility, and visiting the Hughes Center for Research and Innovation in 2015, Dr. Oketah said he was impressed by the team of scientists and their “perfect” responses to his challenging questions. He witnessed the financial and physical investment Synergy put into creating the absolute best products for its customers.

Knowing that Synergy’s products and business opportunity had the capacity to make major changes in people’s lives, he took the business to the people in a country he cares for deeply: Nigeria. He travels to Nigeria monthly to meet with local doctors and disperse the product. Testimonials from happy consumers are flooding in.

“Some doctors are focused on money,” Dr. Oketah said. “When people come to me and say ‘Thank you for this product, thank you for helping me start this business, and thank you for helping my family,’ it gives me joy money can’t buy. As a doctor, I can’t give people employment, but through network marketing, I can.”

When considering his Synergy goals, Dr. Oketah realized that he couldn’t conduct his business the way he wanted to without sacrificing his medical career. He plans to give all of his time to Synergy WorldWide soon, and spend the majority of that time helping people in Nigeria get back on their feet.

“This business is about your personal ambition and your personal dream,” Dr. Oketah said. “You need to know what your main goal is and then you need to work, and you need to work hard. Anyone can be anything with this company. I’m so confident in this. What do you want to be? What are you looking for? I am so happy to have found Synergy.”

How to Create a Plan of Action

Monday, February 08, 2016


Now that you’ve begun setting yourself up for success by attending Kickoff events, considering where you want to take yourself in 2016, and performing the necessary steps to contact new customers and Team Members, how do you bring all these new pieces of information and ideas into one cohesive whole to reach your goals? Action planning and goal setting are some of the most productive ways to reach your potential as a business owner.
There are many ways to create an action plan. Each one is unique, but in order to create the best action plan for yourself, there are a few crucial steps you need in order to remain productive.
Specify the Goal
As you start to plan, be certain that you know exactly what you to accomplish. If you don’t set clear goals for the short-term and long-term future, you’ll never be able to tell if your preparation is working, or if it’s even worth pursuing in the first place.
TIP: When setting your goal and working through your plan, be sure to keep a record. Keeping a record helps you organize your thoughts, gives you an idea of how you are progressing, and keeps you accountable.
Be Realistic
Remaining realistic isn’t meant to dampen your drive for success. Rather, it’s used as a tool to reduce stress that may come with missed deadlines, extraneous circumstances, or even being plain exhausted. Being realistic lets you proactively accomplish goals without becoming discouraged when interruptions inevitably happen.
TIP: To stay realistic and productive, set milestones that are measurable and simple. Allowing yourself to reach specific levels of production keeps you motivated and intent on continuing with your plan.
Stay Organized
This cannot be stressed enough. If you’ve spent time on a task and you’ve finally finished, mark it off. Visual confirmations, such as checkmarks on a list, help you to keep track of what is done, as well as what still needs to be done. Plus, physically checking off a task is incredibly satisfying.
TIP: Binders may seem outdated, but they still serve an important purpose. If you or your computer are prone to forgetting or misplacing information, keeping hard copies in binders is a safe alternative (or back-up) to keeping your important information safe and easily accessible. Just don’t lose your binder …
Timelines
Without setting legitimate timelines, small tasks get pushed back, or even forgotten. When this happens you may find yourself neck deep in projects and you’ll end up stressed. Establishing a realistic timetable keeps you accountable and allows ample time to think ahead. So if you’re not certain how long something will take, give yourself an extra hour just to be sure. If you finish your task earlier than expected, great! You can move on to the next one without feeling rushed.
TIP: Include breaks in your timetable. Setting time aside to relax helps your brain from getting burnt out and lets you stay focused without feeling overwhelmed. Set aside lunch/coffee breaks where you can unwind for an hour.
Don’t Stop Once you’ve established a plan, coordinated with your team (if applicable), and goals are set, the final step is the simplest and most important. Keep working!
TIP: Sometimes, unanticipated events happen. If you feel the need, change some dates around. Don’t get discouraged. Review and revise your plan, but never give up on your goal!

10 Foods that Protect Your Heart

Thursday, February 04, 2016


February is Heart Health Month here in the United States, and we are celebrating at Synergy by sharing our heart health knowledge with you. We encourage you to pay special attention to your heart this month. After all, it is a hard working muscle in your body. At times, we get caught up in daily routines and neglect the heart’s needs. However, by making heart healthy choices every day, you have the power to strengthen not only your heart, but your overall wellness.

A healthy diet is crucial to maintaining a healthy heart, but unless you know which foods to turn to, you may have a hard time getting the most out of your diet.

Here are 10 superfoods to help protect your heart:

Salmon
This fish is a popular choice for heart health because it contains plenty of omega-3 fatty acids that aid in the prevention of blood clots, keep blood flowing throughout the body, and lower triglycerides that contribute to heart disease.

According to the American Heart Association, aim for at least two servings of oily fish a week. The serving size is approximately 3.5 ounces, or about the size of a computer mouse.

Nuts
Walnuts, almonds, cashews, and pistachios are another good source of omega-3. Nuts are a more economical option for getting omega-3 fats, and researchers say that snacking on about 5 ounces of nuts a week can help protect you from heart disease.

Fat-free/Low-fat Milk or Yogurt
Dairy products are known to be high in potassium, which helps in lowering blood pressure. When you choose fat–free or low–fat dairy, you get little to no saturated fat, a known factor in raising cholesterol levels.

Raspberries
Filled with antioxidants, fiber, and Vitamin C, raspberries and other berries are a healthy and tasty way to lower risk of heart disease and stroke.

Chickpeas
Hail to the hummus! The chickpea is a popular and versatile heart healthy food. These little wonders are a fantastic source of soluble fiber – the fiber known to lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL).

Oatmeal
Oats contain fiber called beta-glucan that helps lower LDL. Having as little as one and a half cups of oatmeal is all it takes to help lower your LDL.

Avocados
The reason these fruits have such a creamy texture is because of the “good” fats that are found in them. These fats help lower LDL and have anti-inflammatory function that protects arteries.

Olive Oil
A common staple in Mediterranean diets, olive oil is said to be a healthy alternative to butter and other oils, and limits your intake of saturated fats, which raise your LDL and can cause fat build-up inside your arteries.

Dark Chocolate
Yes … chocolate is on the list. Cacao, the plant that chocolate comes from, is rich in flavanols. These help lower blood pressure, prevent blood clots, and the antioxidants in chocolate help keep the “bad” cholesterol from sticking to your arterial walls.

Grapes
The resveratrol found in grapes contributes to a healthy heart because it keeps blood platelets from sticking together, reducing the risk of blood clots and preventing damage to blood vessels in the heart.
