Isagenix Names Global IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner
Thomas Philbin-Malucelli of Sydney, Australia, Takes Home US$50,000 in Worldwide Health and Wellness Competition
Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company providing nutrition and lifestyle solutions, has announced a Sydney, Australia, man as the 2019 global grand prize winner of its total-body transformation program, the IsaBody Challenge®. Thomas Philbin-Malucelli earned the honor at the Isagenix Global Celebration event in Nashville, Tennessee, last week.
Philbin-Malucelli, who will receive a US$50,000 cash prize and an all-expenses-paid trip to the Isagenix Celebration 2020 event in Utah, competed against 10 individuals who had been named IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winners in their markets: Canada, Colombia, Europe, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. These winners rose as champions from thousands of competitors, with Philbin-Malucelli recognized as a champion among champions — the top global representative for this year’s health and wellness challenge.
“We’re thrilled to honor Thomas as our global grand prize winner. The impressive discipline, perseverance, and commitment he’s shown to improving his health and fitness is an inspiration to all,” said Travis Ogden, chief executive officer of Isagenix. “We wish him continued success and thank him for demonstrating how our exceptional nutrition solutions can help people embrace and achieve healthy change.”
Meet the Global Grand Prize Winner
Thomas Philbin-Malucelli, Age 32
As a burned-out restaurant manager, Philbin-Malucelli was working long hours and late nights and felt like his life was falling apart. He was losing his health, his relationship, and his self-confidence. He wanted to make a change, but the negative environment and people he surrounded himself with left him feeling stuck until he found the IsaBody Challenge. After completing six Challenges and gaining 19 pounds of lean muscle, he was named the 2019 Australia IsaBody Challenge Grand Prize Winner, allowing him to compete in the global IsaBody™ competition.*
IsaBody has given Philbin-Malucelli not only the space to set big goals and the community to inspire and motivate him, but also the love and support he needed to keep pushing himself every day. Now, he’s the fittest, strongest, and happiest he’s ever been.
“I feel so amazing. This program gave me the freedom to become who I wanted to become,” Philbin-Malucelli said. “It has taken hard work and commitment to get here, but I’m thankful every single day for being on this journey.”

*Weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle, and other results depicted here reflect exceptional individual experiences of Isagenix customers and should not be construed as typical or average. Results vary with individual effort, body composition, eating patterns, time, exercise, and other factors, such as genetic and physiological makeup. A two-phase 2016 study published by researchers at Skidmore College showed an average weight loss of 24 pounds after 12 weeks. The study evaluated the use of Isagenix products in men and women for weight loss followed by weight maintenance. During the weight maintenance phase, the subjects who continued the calorie-controlled program using Isagenix products better maintained their weight loss in comparison to those who transitioned to a traditional diet after 52 weeks.
