When Mark Hughes’ mother died at an early age from an eating disorder, he wanted to teach others how to live a healthy life. In 1980, he started selling the original Herbalife Weight-loss Managment system out of his trunk.
After becoming one of the fastest growing companies in 1985, the company decided to become a publicly traded company and in 1993, they added another five million shares. In 2002, Herbalife was bought by J.H. Whitney and Company and Golden Gate Capital, who decided to take the company private. Michael O. Johnson became their CEO a year later.
In 2004, Johnson took the company public once again, this time netting the owners $1.3 billion dollars. After much success, Johnson became executive chairman in June 2017 and the companies Cheif Operating Officer Richard Goudis would become the CEO.
While the company has an intense history, their products are successful. For example, Aaron was a single father who was always stressed. He was in college and gaining weight. Once he started taking the products, he could feel his energy coming back and he wanted to play with his son more. He felt there was more balance in his life. Since starting Herbalife products he’s graduated from college and ran twelve 5Ks. Currently, he is training to run the Duke City Marathon in Albuquerque.
This new found lifestyle has helped him lose ninety-two pounds and then gain twenty-four back as muscle mass. He met his girlfriend through the company and she has helped him learn about portion control. He also works out with people who enjoy the same lifestyle.
Lilliana is in the shape of her life. She became this way by combining the core products and enhancers with a balanced diet and exercising daily. She was encouraged by her Herbalife Success Coach to have clear goals and a step-by-step plan to achieve these goals. Herbalife was different for her than other diets because instead of focusing on weight-loss, she focused on achieving nutritional balance and strength. She also attends training to help with consistency.
Between these two athletes, we have seen Herbalife Success!
