Meet the Emerge Summer Contest Winners

Max Muscle Nutrition recently held a Summer Emerge contest to find out who has experienced the most spectacular transformation thanks to using the supplement company’s popular product Emerge, a potent weight-loss drink that curbs hunger, boosts mood, increases energy, and helps speed up weight loss. The top three winners went toe to toe with hundreds of others and after more than 4,000 votes, they came out on top. The winners were announced on July 17th. First place won $2,500 in cash and prizes, second place won $1,000 in cash and prizes and third place won $500 in cash and prizes. Here are their stories.

Danielle Hooker: 1st Place Winner
As a nurse, wife, and mother to three children, Danielle Hooker still finds time for fitness. In fact, at age 34, she’s somewhat of a cardio queen who loves to run and used to perform as part of a dance team. But, everyone can use an extra push when it comes to working out. That’s why Danielle signed up for the Summer Emerge contest.

“I truly have never entered into any form of a contest before and I was really excited to be a part of this experience,” Danielle said. “Max Muscle and Emerge really helped me along the way and I am eager to share this fact with my peers.”

Danielle strives to be the best mother and wife she can be while maintaining a healthy overall lifestyle for her home. Her main hobby is fitness so she spends a lot of time at the gym. She also loves going to the swimming pool with her kids, and taking family trips to the beach. In the future, she would love to become a homeowner and travel the world.

For supplements and nutrition advice, Danielle visits the Max Muscle Nutrition store in Stockton, California. She credits the helpful, friendly staff for helping her meet her health and fitness goals.

Danielle started taking Emerge over six months ago and along with proper exercise and a healthy diet, has lost 30 pounds and six inches. She is a size 6 now.

“I feel that I did a great job thanks to Emerge,” she said. “I will not stop striving to feel even better, but overall I feel fantastic. With the help of Emerge, I have been able to push myself past prior boundaries to attain a new look and keep myself healthy and fit.”

Q: What did Emerge do for you?
A: It gave me the extra push that I needed when I felt like I couldn’t go on and when the workouts got really tough.

Q: What’s your favorite flavor of Emerge?
 Although all of the flavors are great tasting, I would have to say that Caribbean Cooler is definitely my favorite.

Tai Sin: Second Place Winner
Tai Sin, 26, joined the Summer Emerge contest in an effort to raise funds for her mother and her dog, who are both fighting cancer. As an added benefit, Tai’s participation helped her break a dependency on energy drinks and lose enough weight to fit into her size-eight wedding dress.

“I feel more motivated to reach my fitness goals,” Tai said. “I like using the extra energy boost from Emerge to be productive and it’s helping to make my sleep pattern normal again.”

Tai, who shops at the Max Muscle Nutrition store in Stockton, California, is a self-proclaimed workaholic. She has four jobs and mainly focuses on graphic design. When she’s not at work, Tai loves to go hiking and exploring, or to stay home playing video games with her husband and their three dogs.

At the gym, Tai’s favorite thing to do is leg workouts. She also enjoys trying different styles of martial arts. Otherwise, she’s focused on her career, her husband, and her dreams of world travel.

Emerge has given Tai a healthier approach to reaching her goals. “High sugar energy drinks were a real problem for me because I used them as a quick pick me up,” Tai said. “With Emerge I’m more focused at work and can utilize my time more wisely. At the end of the day, I still have enough energy to squeeze in a gym date with my husband.”

Brittney Johnson: Third Place Winner
For Brittney Johnson, 32, there’s nothing quite like feeling confident in her own clothing. She’s lost 55 pounds since joining her Max Muscle community in Greeley, Colorado. She entered the Summer Emerge contest because she needed a bit more energy for workouts.

Brittney credits her husband, Nic, for keeping her motivated, and loves that she’s able to be more active with him and their two sons. She goes for walks and participates in 5K runs. She takes fitness classes at the gym with her husband. They also do strength training and cardio at least three times a week.

“My goal is to be healthy and strong,” Brittney said. “I want to continue to build muscle and be under 28 percent body fat. I am so happy to be able to be active with my kids and make lasting memories with them.”

Since she’s lost weight, Brittney feels more sociable and comfortable. She’s getting out of the house more often, making new friends, and even offering fitness advice to other people. Brittney’s success and positive energy – along with her nutrition supplements from Max Muscle – keep her working hard.

“I am a huge Max Muscle fan,” Brittney said. “I love all the people in my local Max Muscle community. They have been a huge support. I feel so much better than I used to and I love to exercise now. I still have a way to go for my goal, but it is now a lifestyle for me and I know I will get there soon.”
