Faces of fitness

Meet PURE IBOs Matt and Mallory Meredith. This athletic couple are on the move participating in community cycling and running events and building their PURE business.

Matt works full time and competes in multiple races a year, while Mallory also races, coaches cross country and track and field and works at a local running store. Eating healthy is important to them as is the spiritual, mental and physical health of their family.

Matt ran the Dallas marathon in December 2017, finishing 3:05:05. While being so close to qualifying for the Boston Marathon he went ahead and ran the New Orleans marathon in March of 2018, finishing 3:05:45, missing the mark again. He felt like he was lacking energy. Along with a couple of other red flags, he decided to get micronutrient blood testing done which showed major nutrient deficiencies. Being a healthy eater, this was very disconcerting. His goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon, but with these numbers, he wasn’t sure he ever would. To qualify, athletes must meet time standards which correspond to age and gender.

Enter PURE! When Matt makes up his mind to do something, he’s all in and it was no different when he joined PURE.

IBOs Whitney and Jason Johns shared the opportunity to the Meredith’s in July 2018.  After taking the products, Matt started achieving new personal records in his races. He ran the Houston marathon in January this year, finishing 2:54:51, a 10:14 decrease in his personal best. What’s even more spectacular is that he qualified for the Boston Marathon which he will run with Mallory in April 2020. He attributes his success to products by PURE. Following the Houston marathon, a six-month follow up micronutrient blood test showed zero deficiencies. Now Matt is not only chasing his dreams, he is running them down!

Matt and Mallory also enjoy helping others realize the importance of exercise and making healthy choices. Matt’s advice for someone thinking about joining PURE is to, “Go all in! Flood your body with the products, feel the difference it makes and then set a goal and continue to share no matter what. Steady, consistent action and inviting people to learn about health is what will continue to grow the business.”

The Meredith’s have reached the rank of Platinum Director. They are both driven to sign others up and help them achieve their dreams, and they are grateful for the wonderful people they have met through PURE.

Asked if he could have any super power, Matt said he would like to be Superman® so he could help others during critical times. It sounds like he already has all the superpowers!

Matt works his PURE business part-time and continues to provide for his family through his full-time job. Mallory is working on making PURE a full-time job. Their favorite products are GoYin, ENERGY and the GPS line. Their daughter loves GoYin, Daily Build and CalciuMK+. They live in Tyler, Texas.

Getting to know Gray Gaulding

I recently had the chance to chat with Gray Gaulding, PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) and NASCAR driver. Since it’s NASCAR Day, I thought what better time to get to know this athlete a bit better.

Gray has a passion for the sport, for the fans and for giving back. He is a pleasure to talk to and really knows his sport. He represents the PURE brand on and off the track each week and takes the products to improve his health and his performance.

Did you play with cars as a child? “Yes, I loved playing with cars. I played with Matchbox cars until I was about 10 years old, racing them around on the floor. I still have bags and bags of them in my house.”

What words do you think best describe you? “Happy! I would say I am happy 99 percent of the time. I am outgoing and humble and I tell a good joke every now and then.”

What’s the allure of racing for you? “Definitely the adrenaline rush you get when racing against the best competitors.”

If you could have any passenger in your car, who would it be, and why? “I would want Tiger Woods with me. I love golf and Tiger, in my mind, is the greatest athlete around. To ride with him would definitely be a bucket list item.”

Do you ever talk to yourself inside your car? What do you say? “Ha, you don’t want to know what I say! I can get pretty frustrated on the track because things don’t always go the way you expect them to.  Other times I’ll motivate myself, saying things like, “This is the time!’”

What is the biggest compliment you’ve ever received? “Once an older fan told me that I’m the most approachable race car driver he’s ever met. He said I’m humble and easy to talk to. This came from a fan who has been to numerous races and has met many drivers.”

If you had a day off to do anything, besides racing, what would you do? “We live in North Carolina and like to spend time at Lake Norman. My girlfriend and I like to go fishing and we bring the radio and just relax. Being outside is great for just chilling.”

If you could design your own racetrack, what would it look like? “The oval track is standard. I would create a road course with a fan zone, close to the garage. I would have concerts, bars, restaurants; yeah, my racetrack would cost the most money.”

Do you have a favorite racing story? “Yes! I still remember my first ride at the age of 18. It was Jeff Gordon’s last ride, efore he retired. I got to ride with him which is a day I’ll never forget.”

For those who can’t risk getting a speeding ticket, describe the feeling you get driving at speeds we can’t even imagine? “Well, when you’re going 200 miles per hour, there’s a great amount of danger at stake. As a race car driver, you don’t think of those things. You’re 3 inches from another car and anything could happen … a crash, you could blow a tire, or go airborne.”

If the president of NASCAR was an elected position, would you run and why? “I would absolutely run for president. Having been around racing my whole life, I know I’d be able to make the sport better for racers and the families. I consider myself a great leader, not a follower. I listen to others, and that would mean paying close attention to the needs of current drivers and fans. I wish that would happen!”

Gray’s favorite products by PURE are the GPS line, ENERGY and GoYin. We are thrilled to have him as part of our PURE family!

Good luck on the track!

Meet IBO Karidon Roundy

After staying home for two years after the birth of her first child, Karidon was ready for a change. She was looking for an opportunity that would not only benefit her health but her financial situation as well.

Friends introduced her to products by PURE and she joined the company in November 2017. She has since reached the rank of Sapphire.

“As a stay-at-home mom, I was feeling stuck in where I was at in life. I realized that something needed to change. I started taking products by PURE and experienced changes in my body, my mental state and my overall health. Sharing my journey with others is what has helped me build my business and make a financial change for me and my family. I am thankful every day for PURE and the opportunity to be home with my kids and still help the family out financially.”

Karidon’s favorite products are ENERGY, the GPS Sports Performance line, Mila and all the Superfruits. She enjoys mixing Mila in shakes, applesauce, muffins, yogurt and pancake mix. Her family’s favorite recipe is Mila pudding, made by combining Mila with chocolate almond milk and letting it sit to thicken to a pudding. She also loves mixing GPS Hydrate with ENERGY. Her favorite flavor combination is watermelon and fruit punch.

Karidon’s advice for anyone seeking the PURE opportunity, “Really dive into other people’s success stories while you’re building your own. It shows you what’s possible and how others are benefitting from the products and changing their lives. It’s inspiring!”

Karidon and her family live in Lyman, Wyoming.

 

Meet IBOs Steve and Joni Michael

Before joining PURE in 2010, Steve was coaching high school football and he and and Joni were also self-employed business owners. They were raising four children and enjoying a healthy lifestyle. Life was good, except for the precious time they were losing while building their companies rather than spending it with their family.  

When IBO Jared Burnett introduced the Michaels to PURE CEO Daren Hogge, they knew right away that PURE was on an entirely different trajectory than any other company in the industry. They sensed it in PURE’s dynamic leadership and in the systems the company had in place to help people physically and financially achieve success.

“We knew that starting a PURE business would also take time, and that we were going to have to work hard. We were already short on time in our lives, so we figured we had nothing to lose,” said Joni. “We saw the success others were having with PURE and believed that if we just put our heads down and focused, we could be just as successful and ultimately put ourselves in the driver’s seat to create the time in our lives that we desperately wanted.”

Becoming part of PURE was an easy business decision for them. 

Today, Steve and Joni have reached the prestigious rank of Blue Diamond. Now that their kids have grown, they’ve switched their purpose in life to giving back to others. They believe that real leadership begins when you take the blessings you have been given and share them with others.

“Every day is a blessing. We thank God daily that we have a place here on earth and opportunities before us to make an impact on the lives placed in front of us,” said Steve. “We have withstood the challenges of marriage, raising a family and building businesses. To be at this point in our lives physically, financially and spiritually is a dream come true. We truly have a blessed life and one we are so thankful for.”

Joni’s favorite products are HealthTrim Liquid Cleanse, GoYin, Daily Build and GPS Energize. Steve loves the entire GPS Performance line and Organic Sulfur.  They live in Larchwood, Iowa.

 

Meet Mark Kobe, PURE IBO and U.S. Army veteran

The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult, but for Mark Kobe, Independent Business Owner (IBO), the PURE products and opportunity made the transition that much easier.

Mark served in the U.S. Army from 1995-2015, stationed in New York, North Carolina and Maryland, as a Signals Intelligence professional and Spanish linguist. He received the Air Medal and other medals for deployments to Afghanistan, Africa, Bosnia and South America.

Mark is most proud of the time he served with a Special Missions Unit in Maryland. He was one of less than 1% of the total military who was accepted into this unit.

Mark stated, “I had the opportunity to take part in historic missions and work with some true heroes. The places that I got to see, the missions that I was a part of and most importantly the quality of the people that I got to work with will always stay with me as the best time in my military career.”

After retiring, he was employed under the Secretary of Defense. He discovered PURE: People United Reaching Everyone in August 2018.

PURE gave Mark and his wife a vehicle through which they could reach their financial goals and generate residual income for their future. After retiring from the military after a full 20-year career, Mark was starting from scratch at the age of 46. He wanted to add another stream of income to his pension and disability. 

“PURE is providing for us, as long as I am willing to put in the time and effort.  As I struggle to understand how to be successful in this line of work, I find that I’m constantly reading books,” said Mark. “I have improved my personal relationship with Christ as I spend hours reading the Bible and have put my PURE business in his hands to support us. Daily Detox and Mila are my wife’s favorite products. My favorite is Organic Sulfur. I have full range of motion in my knees for the first time in a long time and I’m no longer taking glucosamine.”*

Mark decided to forgo his usual workout supplement regime to try PURE’s GPS line of products. After using all six products for three months, Mark noticed results, as did his friends and family whom he exercises with.

Mark stated, “The pre-workout combination of Adapt, Energize and Circulate is unlike any other pre-workout regimen that I have ever used. I don’t get the “shakes” that I would typically get with most pre-workout supplements. GPS Hydrate keeps my energy level high throughout my workout. GPS Rebuild post-workout supplement is awesome; the taste, the mixability, everything is top notch! With Reset, the cycle is complete. The energy it provides is amazing!”*

Mark is a true hero in our eyes. He is living the PURE philosophy by sharing the opportunity and the wonderful benefits of our high-quality products with others. We are blessed to have him as part of the PURE family.

Santiago Ramirez, PURE IBO and veteran, has a servant’s heart

Meet Santiago, a PURE Independent Business Owner and Navy veteran. He joined PURE in August 2018 because he liked the products, but he was even more attracted by the company’s philosophy of reaching out and helping others.

Santiago grew up in Miami, Florida. After graduating high school, he did basic training and boot camp, spending time in Virginia Beach training to be an Operation Specialist. He then went on to join the Pre-commissioning Detachment crew in San Diego, California to commission the USS Essex (LHD-2). On board this massive amphibious ship, Santiago operated radar, navigation and communications equipment in the combat information center and on the ship’s bridge.

At the end of his naval career, Santiago was deployed in the western Pacific where he got to visit Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Australia. After serving four years in the Navy, Santiago returned to civilian life attending school to study marketing and advertising.

Santiago and his wife both enjoy helping others with the PURE opportunity and products, especially veterans, first responders and families who are currently serving in the U.S. Santiago said, “If you are a veteran and enjoy helping others, I would recommend talking to a PURE IBO about trying the products and/or becoming an IBO themselves and joining the community to reach others.”

One important lesson he learned during his time in the Navy was the importance of physical fitness in daily life. To stay fit, Santiago meets up regularly with other veterans and civilians to participate in ruck hikes, marching long distances over varied terrain while carrying a weighted (40-60 lbs.) pack. He is also involved with GORUCK, an organization that leads coordinated events led by veterans of the Special Operations community to help transition military to the civilian world.

To support his health in addition to physical exercise, Santiago uses the GPS product line. He states, “The events offered by GORUCK require a high level of fitness and endurance, and products by PURE have given me the edge to participate at my age. My favorite product from PURE has to be GPS Adapt. It helps me combat mental and physical fatigue.”

Santiago, and other veterans, have given so much and deserve that type of support in return. Here at PURE, we proudly support all veterans and active military. Help veterans and their families by going here where you will find resources to offer support.
