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 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 become complacent and lazy, and that isn’t who I am. I AM a leader! I AM a winner! I heard that The Ultimate THRIVER was starting in a few days. That very day I told my wife and my friend 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 that I’ll be forever grateful for. My results came from eating healthy fuel, all-out effort in the gym and using the 3-Step THRIVE Experience 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, 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 my healthy lifestyle to the fullest. Le-Vel is a company that encourages people to become the best version of themselves. I AM... The #UltimateTHRIVER!

Cynthia Bao

My name is Cynthia, and I’m a 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. In the beginning of 2019, I lost 32 lbs and I felt amazing and became pregnant 2 months later with my miracle baby. I had a tumor removed from my right ovary at 20 weeks pregnant and gave birth in March 2020.

When I imagined having my baby, I didn’t expect it to go the way it did. I lacked motivation to do anything but take care of the baby, 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 last year tested my mental health. I tried a few times to get back on the THRIVE Experience, but could not find the motivation to use it consistently.

When I saw myself in our family Christmas photos, I knew I needed to change. I needed accountability and something that I could focus on. The Ultimate THRIVER Competition gave me a reason to stay accountable by uploading photos and pressing on 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 the Ultimate THRIVER Competition, I’m still a winner because my health and happiness is back! It’s worth more than anything else in this world.

The past 12 weeks have been life changing for me both physically and mentally! I now wake up at 4 a.m. for workouts, no problem! My THRIVE Experience with DFT Duo Burn helped me lose over 20 pounds 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. I was a broken soul. My family unexpectedly and traumatically lost my grandpa this past December. There are no words to describe the amount of pain I felt of losing someone so close. There is a huge void in my heart and my life will never be the same. I questioned everything from my purpose, to my worth.

I don’t think it was a coincidence that this competition started shortly after my grandpa's death. I saw it as an outlet, a distraction from my reality. I didn’t have a plan, instead, I 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 THRIVE 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’ve learned so much during the Ultimate THRIVER Competition and can’t thank LeVel enough for giving me the opportunity to find myself again. I dedicate 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 DFT, Balance and Biotic.

Rex Flores

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 2020. 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 continually had restless nights juggling between working the nightshift and being awake during the day to care for my daughter as a full-time dad.

Then, my sister and brother-in-law introduced me to the THRIVE Experience. 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 me 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 is a year of change and the #UltimateThriver 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.

My whole life I have always had the desire to love myself but it felt like a constant battle because everyone around me came with opinions about how my life was supposed to look and who I was supposed to be. I used to let their opinions guide my life choices… until now! In 2018, my life as a single mother to 3 amazing boys took a hard left as 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 lose weight, in fact it was going to be a fight to keep it off.

Fast forward to 2020, when I weighed in at 197 pounds and I felt my opportunity as a mother slipping away, leaving my boys with no one. I knew this was not going to be my life when I was given the chance to try the THRIVE Experience. I eventually could smile without pain, feel happy without forcing it and more importantly, FEEL HEALTHY because I could LOSE WEIGHT! I have been on the 3 Steps consistently and used Activate, Boost, Biotic, TAC DFT, Ultra DFT, Sculpt as well as Balance. THRIVE has given me my life back and it’s helping me show 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 Le-Vel.

I first began THRIVING 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, ate right everyday, worked out everyday, had meaningful conversations with people I love, and overall just THRIVED! The 1, 2, 3-step process was so easy to incorporate into my schedule and it allowed me to have tons of energy throughout my days. I slept better and had a better attitude. The THRIVE Experience is truly a life changer! I also added Sculpt to my THRIVE Experience to amplify my body change and let me tell you, it did!!! I switched my 3rd Step to the White Label DFTs and Ultra DFTs 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!!

My THRIVE journey changed my outlook, physical and emotional health. Prior to the THRIVE Experience, I struggled with energy, motivation, wellbeing and happiness. The sudden death of my partner in 2019 thrusted me into becoming a single parent and 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 Ultimate THRIVER Competition came into my view and I was determined to try and be the best that I could be not just for me, but for my son. Over the course of a year (since Season 1 of Ultimate THRIVER) I have lost 54 pounds with THRIVE and intermittent fasting. The vitamins allow me to fill in my nutritional gaps while I fast. My regimen consists of THRIVE’s daily 3 Steps. The Women’s Lifestyle Capsules, Lifestyle Mix and the DFT. Depending on what I felt I needed, I alternated between the Black Label, Burn and Ultra DFTs. I would break my fast during the day with Sculpt and follow it with Recover. I could never put a price on how the Ultimate THRIVER Competition and THRIVE products gave me my WHY and life back, regardless of if I win or lose. I am forever grateful for this company, the support from the team and the amazing products that made it sooo easy. THRIVE was my game changer!

Jeff Kauffman

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 wasn’t able to meet my new clients for lunch, plus I had 3 kids at home doing school, so it got a little crazy! I started to eat foods that were unhealthy and really didn’t notice the pounds packing on until Thanksgiving, 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, 172 pounds was a lot to carry. I decided to shoot for 145 pounds by continuing my 3 Steps (Lifestyle Capsules, Pumpkin Spice Lifestyle Mix and the I AM DFTs).I added Form, Pro Bars, Boost, Blast, Sculpt, Biotic, Treat Meal and Move. I started running daily and working out again as well as strictly following my wife’s super clean eating for her health challenges and it helped a lot. I am now down over 30 pounds. To stay motivated and not put 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 shown me I can do this! I never want to go back to the way I was!

Ultimate THRIVER is more to me than a competition. It helped me soul search and focus on personal development. Within the past year, 4 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’s 3 Simple Steps were my go-to in the morning (Men's Lifestyle Capsules, Vanilla Lifestyle Mix and the Black Label DFT). I faithfully prepared my meals for the week and maintained a nutrient-dense diet. I worked out six days a week to get stronger, mentally and physically. I took Sculpt and THRIVE FIT Circulate before each workout for laser focus and intensity. Before bed, Balance and Biotic were my go-to for a healthier gut. After long double shifts, I took Rest and used DFT Recharge to help my immune system recover. This competition has reminded me that no matter what life throws at you, are meant to THRIVE, as well as 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-development for your mental health.

Cassondra Weltzin

I started to THRIVE 4 years ago as a single mom of 4 kids. I was struggling severely with no energy, unbalanced moods, weight gain and lack of motivation as well as mental clarity. Then, my friend told me about the THRIVE Experience. I decided I had nothing to lose and didn't expect it to help me at all. By Day 10, I woke up as a whole different person--one who could function to full capacity. I felt happy, confident and centered. To this day, THRIVE has continued to sustain and deliver everything I felt on my Day 10 and then some. I've always called this product my life saver because I got my life back and I can be the best version of me as a mom, individual and mental health therapist. I took the Lifestyle Capsules, Lifestlye Shake and DFT every morning. I also used Balance at night to stay regulated. This product is simple, yet delivers something phenomenal. This contest is important to me because I gained so much weight last year and getting myself back to healthy was a must. If I win, it would also allow opportunities for myself and children that I normally couldn't afford. I am grateful everyday for my friend who shared, for Le-Vel and this product!

Being a construction worker with a tough schedule, 5 daughters, 1 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 the THRIVE Experience about 3 years ago and loved it! I was able to stop energy drinks, soda, eating fast food and I quit smoking!!! Unfortunately, I fell into those not-so-good habits again.

With the new year came a new chance and I started THRIVING again. The Ultimate THRIVER Competition gave me the motivation to challenge myself and see what I could accomplish. It encouraged me to start a new lifestyle!! Along with the THRIVE products and hard work, I transformed over the 12 weeks into a better me. Using the 1,2,3 Simple Steps with Sculpt, Form and THRIVE snacks, 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 doesn't end here. I am looking forward to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and conquering 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 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 Competition, I wanted to reveal all the hard work I’d put in. For 12 weeks, I combined my Lifestyle Capsules and Lifestyle Shake with the Duo Burn DFT and added Sculpt to my daily routine, too. 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, yet I was lifting heavier! MIND. BLOWN. I am in my 40s 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 Ultimate THRIVER 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, Black Label DFT mainly for mood support and Men's Lifestyle Capsules. I also incorporated weightlifting into my routine: High reps (12-25) with light weight. My weight went from 264 pounds in January to 241 pounds on April 15th.

Even though the ULTIMATE THRIVER competition is over, we hope you’ll check out all of the incredible transformations above (and many others on Facebook and Instagram), showing the powerful combination of THRIVE products with focus and determination.
