A More Meaningful Life: Ross Schneider's MonaVie Miracle Makes Him a Better Husband and Father
Ross Schneider's battle with weight loss began when his college football career ended. Ross hung up his cleats for good at Abilene Christian University in 1998. At the time, he weighed 265 pounds and was burned out from living in the gym for the previous 10 years of his life.
"After football, my muscle mass basically turned to fat," Ross says. "I would try different diets throughout the years and had limited success, but I was never able to consistently keep the weight off."
It was nearly four years ago that Ross first started noticing pain and other problems in his lower back. The problems continued to worsen over the years to the point of rendering Ross bed ridden for days at a time. Things came to a head in May of this year on a fishing trip in South Padre Island, Texas.
"I hurt my back on the first day of a four-day trip and spent the rest of the time at the dock while the rest of my group went fishing," Ross recalls. "I knew from previous conversations with a physical therapist that I was not going to ever get this situation under control until I was able to keep the weight off and strengthen my core. I decided then that I was going to change my life forever."
Ross was introduced to MonaVie Active around the same time he first started experiencing back troubles. While he drank and enjoyed the juice, he didn't fully pursue the MonaVie opportunity in favor of following some other ventures in the construction industry. As soon as he got back from South Padre Island, he got a hold of his close friend and Gold Executive Nick Morris. He told Nick that he was headed straight to his house to get a bottle of MonaVie Active and a month's supply of MonaVie RVL.
Following the MonaVie RVL program precisely as instructed, Ross shed 15 pounds in a matter of weeks. With the excess weight now gone, he noticed his energy levels increasing even though he was consuming half the calories than before using MonaVie RVL. This renewed energy inspired him to get more physically active. He started running, swimming, and even began a light weight training and conditioning program three days a week.
"By the end of my second month on RVL, I had lost 35 pounds," Ross says. "Now, I was really inspired! I kept going, and I have now lost a total of 54 pounds, gone from size 40 to 34 jeans, and from XXL to large shirts. I now have a whole new outlook on life and will never fall into the trap of not caring about my overall health and appearance again."
With this new outlook, Ross's daily schedule now consists of waking up every morning at 5:30 to work out for 30 minutes, helping to get the kids off to school, and arriving at the office by 7:30 a.m.
"The best part about all of this," Ross says, "is that my transformation has made me a better husband and father. I have also become an inspiration to many around me including family, coworkers, and business associates, as I have recently signed up five new distributors. In my opinion, there is not a healthier or easier way to get those unwanted pounds off than to follow the MonaVie RVL program. I will share this opportunity with everyone I know because what better way to be healthy and make money and help others do the same!"
