I weighed myself randomly a few days before the end of 2020. I looked down at the scale and up at the mirror; I was shocked and frankly embarrassed. I was newly married, and I had reached my heaviest weight and unhealthiest point in my life... I had stopped working out and ate what I wanted, as much as I wanted, whenever I wanted. I could’ve made a million excuses, but the truth is I had let myself go—that hit me hard at that moment. I had gotten complacent and lazy, and that isn’t who I am. I AM a leader! I AM a winner! I had heard that The Ultimate Thriver was starting a few days away. That very day I told my wife and my friend and that I’d be entering it. This competition was just what I needed at the right time—a Godsend! I went all in! I pushed my body and mind beyond limits and left nothing on the table to have this transformation. It took grit, but it was one of the most rewarding seasons of my life I’ll be forever grateful for. My results came from eating healthy fuel, all-out effort in the gym, and using the THRIVE 3 step system every morning (Men’s Capsules, Lifestyle Mix, and DFT Duo Burn or Black Label), plus Sculpt, Boost, and Biotic! With THRIVE my body and mind function optimally and perform at the highest level, and I feel INCREDIBLE! I started at the unhealthiest point in my life, and now I am at the healthiest point in my life! I am grateful for Le-Vel and the premium grade nutrition that supports a healthy lifestyle to the fullest & being a company that encourages people to become the best version of themselves. I AM... The #UltimateThriver!

My name is Cynthia, mom of 3. My Thrive journey has been a whirlwind, to say the least. I started thriving in 2018; I was overweight and struggled with no energy and fertility issues. Beginning of 2019 I lost 32 lbs and I felt amazing and happy. I ended up getting pregnant two months later with my miracle baby, had a tumor removed from my right ovary at 20 weeks pregnant and gave birth a week before pandemic shutdown March 2020. When I imagined having my baby, I didn’t expect it to go the way it did. We were under quarantine, no one could visit and the constant fear that my kids would catch COVID-19 gave me anxiety. I struggled with PPD, lacked motivation to do anything but take care of the baby and so I gave up on taking care of myself. I ate to hide any negative emotions I felt, and ended up gaining over 40 lbs in 6 months. Having a new baby during a pandemic really tested my mental health. I tried a few times to get back on Thrive, but could not find the motivation to take it consistently. When I saw myself in our family Christmas photos, I knew I needed to change. I needed accountability, something that I could focus on. Ultimate Thriver gave me a reason to stay accountable by uploading photos and keep going even when I wanted to quit. I am so thankful for my daily 3 steps with Burn, Sculpt, Biotic and Balance. With Thrive, diet, and exercise I’ve finally started to feel like myself again. Even if I don’t win Ultimate Thriver, I’m still a winner because my health and happiness that I’ve gotten back is worth more than anything else in this world.
The past 12 weeks has been life changing for me both physically and mentally! Wake up at 4 AM for workouts, no problem! My thrive experience with added DFT DUO burn helped me achieve over 20 lbs of weight loss and multiple inches have disappeared! After almost 5 years of Thriving this is the hardest I have pushed myself to become an even stronger person from the inside out. I love the extra energy I feel everyday that allows me to continue to live my best life as a mom, wife, and friend !
Before I can explain why this competition was important to me, I need to tell you where I was before starting this competition. A broken soul. My family unexpectedly and traumatically lost my grandpa on December 16th, 2020. There are no words to describe the amount of pain of losing someone so close. There is a huge void in my heart and life will never be the same. I fell into a deep depression immediately after losing my grandpa. I questioned everything from my purpose, to my worth and questioned why I kept waking up every morning. I many times begged God to take me and cried to my husband about I was tired of living. I have always been a firm believer of “everything happens for a reason” and “Gods timing.” I don’t think it was a coincidence that this competition started shortly after my grandpas death. I saw this as an outlet, a distraction from the hell I was living in. I didn’t have a plan.. I just told myself I would take this competition one day at a time and I would let it all out at the gym. I brought my Facebook friends and Instagram followers on this journey with me and found happiness in helping them start their own journeys. Life is about the little things like helping someone, smiling at a stranger, sitting down and enjoying a healthy meal and doing things you never thought you could do. I learned to much during the ultimate thriver competition and can’t thank LeVel enough for giving me the opportunity to find myself again. I dedicated this entire competition to my grandpa. lo hicimos Fellito!!! te amo hasta se abaca el mundo!!! 07/04/1948-12/16/2020 Products used: Men’s capsules, Sculpt, Chocolate Lifestyle Mix, Duo Burn, Balance and Biotic
My name is Rex and this is my THRIVE journey: In January of 2020, I flew back home from the UK/PH after 12 years of being away. This time I wasn’t alone: my 11-month-old daughter was coming home with me. Fast forward 3 months later, I was in a slight culture-shock just months after a series of whirlwinds. I felt like I was living a foreigner life all over again, but this time, in my HOME country and with a BABY—all in the midst of a pandemic. I was jobless, unmotivated, depressed, and unknowingly reaching the pinnacle of my weight gain. I was up to 240+ lbs due to health issues, restless nights, fast food, sweets, and sipping on energy drinks and coffee like it was water. I eventually accepted a job opportunity, but was continually having restless nights trying to juggle between working nightshift and having to be awake during the day to care for my daughter as a full-time dad. Then, my sister and brother-in-law introduced me to THRIVE. I was close-minded at first because my health was my least priority, BUT I knew THIS wasn’t “ME.” Prior to the competition, I knew THRIVE would help enhance myself physically and mentally. I was already a firm believer of the product, but an inconsistent user. So, Ultimate Thriver was an outlet for me to get out of my comfort zone and make NO MORE excuses. 2021 was going to be a Year of Change. #UltimateThriverSeason2 came at the right place, at the right time. Because of this journey, the 3-Steps opened my eyes and made me realize that it IS possible to reach my physical goals even as a FULL-TIME DAD with a FULL-TIME JOB.
I don't even know where to start, my whole life I have always had the desire to love myself but it felt like a constant battle because all around me everyone came with opinions about how my life was supposed to look and who I was suppose to be and to be honest I used to let their opinions guide my life choices..until now! In 2018 my life as a single mother to three amazing boys took a hard left and I was told that I needed to have iron and blood transfusions followed by an emergency hysterectomy due to a bleeding disorder that went untreated. I was told that I would not be able to loose weight, in fact it was going to be a fight to keep it off so fast forward to 2020 when I weighed in at 197 and I felt my opportunity as a mother slipping away leaving my boys with no-one. Well this was not going to be my life and when I was given the chance to try a product like Thrive I was soon going to see that I could smile without pain, I could feel happy without forcing it and I could more importantly FEEL HEALTHY, and CAN LOOSE WEIGHT! I have been on the 3 step system consistently as well as the activate, boost, biotic, TAC, Ultra DFT, Sculpt & Balance. This system has given me my life back and It is showing my boys that they can be who they want to be despite the opinions of others. YOU CAN DO THIS MOM, are words I longed to hear and now hear every day! Thank you Thrive.
I first began taking thrive in January weighing about 270 pounds I wanted to take this opportunity to change my life and actually do it right so I made sacrifices, eat right everyday, workout everyday, have meaningful conversations with people I love, and overall just thrive! The 1,2,3 step process was so easy to add into my schedule and allowed me to have tons of energy through my days, sleeping better, having a better attitude, it is truly a life changer! I also added the sculpt pills to amplify my body change and let me tell you it did!!! I switch my 3rd step to the white label/ ultra patches for the best results as well! I am now 215 pounds in 4 amazing months I was able to do it with thrive ! Thank you for this life changing product I would do it all over again if it was offered to me in a different life!!

I want to share my Thrive journey and how it changed my outlook, physical and emotional health. Prior to Thrive I struggled with energy, motivation, wellbeing and happiness. Sure life events prolonged my misery with the sudden death of my partner in 2019, thrusting me into being a single parent. Throughout my journey I constantly felt unprepared like I didn’t have enough strength to do it on my own, while working full time. Then the Thrive challenge came into my view and I was determined to try and be the best I can be. Not just for me but my son. Over the course of a year (since season 1 of Ultimate Thriver) I have lost 54 pounds with Thrive and interment fasting. The vitamins allow me to fill in my nutritional gaps while I fast. My regimen consist of Thrive’s daily three steps. The Women’s multivitamins, lifestyle mix and DFT patch. I alternated between the Black label DFT, Burn and Ultra. Depending on what I felt I needed. I would break my fast during the day with Sculpt and follow it with Recover. I can never put a price tag on how the Ulitimate Thriver and products gave me my WHY and life back, regardless win or lose. I am forever grateful for this company, the support from the team and the amazing products that made this sooo easy. Thrive was my game changer!
My name is Jeff Kauffman, and this is my Ultimate Thriver story. Like a lot of people, 2020 was a very difficult year for me. I was already working my investment business from home, but not being able to meet my new clients for lunch plus having 3 kids home doing school, it got a little crazy! I started to eat foods that were unhealthy and really didn’t notice the covid 20+ pounds packing on until Thanksgiving. I knew it when I finally stepped on the dreaded scale. I saw the Ultimate Thriver competition and felt this was what I needed to get motivated to lose the weight. My wife and family supported my decision, so I went all in. For my 5’5 frame, the 172 lbs. was a lot to carry. I decided to shoot for 145 by continuing my 3 steps (Capsules, Pumpkin Spice Mix and I AM DFT) and added Form, Probars, Boost, Blast, Sculpt, Biotic, Treat Meal and Move. I started back running daily and working out again. I began strictly following my wife’s super clean eating for her health challenges and it helped a lot. I have lost those 27 pounds, in fact I am down over 30. To keep me motivated and not putting the weight back on, I have entered The Bend to Whistler a virtual race that covers 700 miles and you have 6 months to complete it. These last 3 months, I have more self-confidence and it’s showed me I can do this and I never want to go back to the way I was!
This Ultimate Thriver is more to me than a competition. It helped me soul search and focus on personal development. Within the past year, four things occurred that changed my life forever. I am a proud Toledo Police Sergeant in the great city of Toledo, OH. On May 20th, 2020 I was on the frontline of a full-blown riot. On July 4th, 2020 an officer and friend was killed in the line of duty. On November 25th, 2020 A close friend and co-worker died from an apparent heart attack. On January 18th, 2021 another officer and friend was killed in the line of duty. These incidents led me to drink alcohol excessively to numb the emotion, calm uncontrollable stress and mask my sadness. I decided this competition would help me take back control of my spirit, passion, and health. I decided to remove alcohol from my life during the Ultimate Thriver competition. Thrive and the three simple steps are my go-to in the morning (Thrive Men's Capsules, Vanilla Lifestyle Mix, and the Black Label DFT). I am faithfully preparing my meals for the week and maintain a nutrient-dense diet. I work out six days a week to get stronger mentally and physically. I take sculpt and Thrive Fit Circulate before each workout for laser focus and intensity. Before bed, Thrive Balance and Thrive Biotic are my go-to for a healthier gut. After long double shifts I take Thrive Rest and Thrive Recharge to help my immune system recover. This competition has reminded me that no matter what life throws at you are meant to Thrive. Socially be around people that will help elevate you to your ultimate potential. Every day get your booty moving with intentional physical activity and self-develop for your mental health.
I started thrive 4 years ago as a single mom of 4 kids. I was struggling severely with no energy, unbalanced moods, depression, weight gain, and lack of motivation and mental clarity. I was scheduled to see a doctor 3 weeks out when my friend told me about thrive. I decided I had nothing to loose and honestly didn't expect it to help at all. Day 10 I woke up a whole different person- one that could function to full capacity and I felt happy, confident, centered. To this day, thrive has continued to sustain and deliver everything I felt on day 10 and then some. I've always called this product my life saver because I didn't have to see that doctor, I got my life back and I can be the best version of me as a mom, individual, and mental health therapist. I take the pills, shake and patch every morning. I use balance at night to stay regulated. This product is simple, yet delivers something phenomenal. This contest is important to me because I had gained so much weight during covid and getting myself back to healthy was a must. It would also allow opportunities for myself and children that I normally couldn't afford. I am grateful everyday for my friend who shared and for Le-Vel and this product!
Being a construction worker with a tough schedule, 5 daughters, one who is terminally disabled and requires constant care, my diet went downhill, I started to put on weight and fell into bad habits. I started using Thrive about three years ago and loved it, I was able to stop energy drinks, soda, eating fast food and quit smoking!!! Unfortunately, I fell into those not so good habits again. Being a new year and a new chance, I started Thriving again. The ultimate Thriver gave me the motivation to challenge myself and see what I could accomplish, it encouraged me start a new lifestyle!! Along with the thrive products and hard work I transformed over the twelve weeks into a better me. Using the Thrive 1,2,3 with the Thrive Sculpt, Thrive form and the Thrive snacks, it gave me the energy, focus and motivation to accomplish what I set out to do! I now have more energy, focus and determination to be a better father and employee. I am fortunate to be given this opportunity and no matter what, everyone who entered this competition is a winner. The journey does not end here. I am looking forward to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and conquer whatever challenges life may have in store for me.
Thriving is the most amazing lifestyle. Last year I consumed a surplus of calories to aid in building muscles onto my 5’1 petite frame. Thrive’s 3-step system every morning gave me the energy I needed to push hard in the gym and lift heavier weights than I ever thought possible! For the Ultimate Thriver challenge, I wanted to reveal all the hard work I’d put in. For 12 weeks I combined my Thrive vitamin capsules and lifestyle mix with the DuoBurn DFT and added Sculpt to my daily routine. I found that Thrive helped me tremendously as I decreased calories to my body’s actual metabolic need while still maintaining the same intensity in the gym! I was losing weight and at the same time I was lifting heavier! MIND. BLOWN. I am in my 40’s and this is the best I have ever felt or looked before. You get out of life what you put into it. Same goes for your body. I nourish mine with Thrive!
I began my journey by reevaluating my diet. I incorporated higher protein and fewer carbs while increasing my green vegetable intake. I used Thrive Sculpt for extra amino acids, Thrive Black Label mainly for mood support, and Thrive Men's Formulated Vitamins. I have also incorporated weightlifting into my routine: high reps (12-25) with light weight. My weight went from 264 in January to 241 on April 15th.
