Elite Honors Spotlight: Dan Schellkopf



New Team Members and Synergy veterans alike continue to latch onto the Elite Honors system and find fulfillment in reaching the milestones that are required to become Elite Honors qualified. An elite few have even become Elite Honors qualified all nine months since the earnings model was introduced.

DAN SCHELLKOPF of Westerville, Ohio, is a six-time Elite Honors qualifier despite his tight schedule. Dan is the owner of a successful residential and commercial window film business that he has kept alive for 28 years. His work schedule becomes especially busy in Ohio's warm months, making it even more impressive that he became an Elite Honors qualifier in May.

Dan said that before becoming a Synergy Team Member he attended his first-ever Business Builder Conference and sat in the back with his arms folded. He was sure he would not join the company; however, in 2010 he made it official and has stuck with Synergy ever since because of his love for the products and his belief that Synergy has limitless potential.

In contrast to his first BBC experience, Dan attended BBC 2015 in Salt Lake City where Elite Honors was launched and listened eagerly to the parameters of the new business model. He was excited about Synergy launching a simple system that was attainable for everyone and encouraged constant growth.

"As we build toward Elite Honors, we reap the true rewards," Dan said. "I see it as being valuable because pin level recognition is nice, but Elite Honors is something you can qualify for every month. It's a system within a system. Elite Honors allows you to start fresh every month."

Dan is an illustration of leading by example. He shows others that earning a second income is possible despite life's many demands and is Elite Honors is the perfect map to follow.

SYNERGY SPONSORS SPEED WINDSURFING WORLD CHAMPION



She’s a world champion, a world record holder, and an osteopath. Proudly sporting a Synergy logo on her windsurfing sail, she is also Synergy’s newest sponsored athlete who not only uses Synergy products, but shares them with her patients at her medical practice in England.

Zara Davis learned the art of windsurfing when she was 13, but took a hiatus from the sport from the time she was 15 until she was 27. Her employer at the time refueled her love for windsurfing and she hasn’t stopped since. She picked the sport back up quickly and even met her husband while lake windsurfing.

In May 2016, at almost 50 years old, Zara snagged her first-ever world championship title in women’s speed windsurfing while competing at the Dunkerbeck GPS Speed Challenge in Fuerteventura. She not only beat out all of the other women in the competition, but recorded a better time than more than half of the men. Zara is also a six-time Europe speed windsurfing champion and is known by many as “the fastest woman on water” with the world records in the speed windsurfing mile at 34.74 knots and held the 500m world record at 45.83 knots (53mph).

“I love the challenge and I love being at sea,” Zara said. “For whatever reason, I found that I have a natural talent for the sport. It takes years to be good at it, but when you’re good at something, you obviously hone in on that skill. I’m using my talent to inspire youngsters, especially young girls, to take up sports and try windsurfing.”

Windsurfing relies heavily on the quality and structure of a windsurfer’s board and sail. Both structures are built and paired to get the most out of the wind current. A speed windsurfer’s sail is about double the size of a recreational windsurfing sail because it needs to harness as much wind as possible. Zara said the physics of a windsurfing sail can be compared to the physics of an airplane wing. The sail needs to be precisely angled to catch and utilize wind for movement.

Don’t be fooled, though. Not everyone with the right gear can speed windsurf. The more wind a windsurfer harnesses, the more difficult it becomes to hang onto the sail. Successfully controlling a speed windsurfing sail and board requires an incredible amount of strength. Zara stands at 6 feet tall with plenty of lean muscle that she must maintain to be successful at her sport. Her stature is a major advantage in the speed windsurfing world.

“The physics of windsurfing is quite a geeky thing,” Zara said. “The only bit you are sailing on is the back of the board and fin, executing in a speed windsurfing race, especially, requires you to be fit and strong and bold.”


There is a level of bravery that speed windsurfing requires, Zara said. Imagine traveling at 50 miles per hour on water, losing balance, and suddenly smacking down on top of the water. That can’t feel good.

“Everything to do with windsurfing is physically demanding,” Zara said. “The hardest thing is balance and stability. You use every muscle in the body all the time. For this reason, it’s demanding on the cardiovascular system.”

To train on water, Zara travels about four hours from her home on Bristol’s coast to the West Kirby Marine Lake. In addition to working full-time, Zara spends up to 15 hours per week swimming, cycling, running, doing Pilates, and doing suspension training. She maintains a nutritious diet, drinks plenty of water, and makes sure high-quality nutritional supplements are always part of her daily routine. Now, that supplement routine includes ProArgi-9+, e9, Phytolife and Mistify. She is a walking example of health to all of her osteopathy patients.

“I work with a lot of elite athletes and I would be very uncomfortable putting anything in my practice that I knew wasn’t pure,” Zara said.

And as an elite athlete herself, Zara knows a good product when she sees one. The in-depth quality testing and strict production standards that Synergy requires in its manufacturing facility make Zara confident that the company’s products will make a difference in her athletic performance and in the lives of her patients.

Watch Eric Poland's Transformation Story



Synergy WorldWide traveled to Kentucky to personally congratulate the newest SLMsmart 90-day Challenge Champion Eric Poland and learn more about his SLMsmart journey. A devoted family man and employee of the only Corvette manufacturing plant in the world, Eric lost 40 lbs. (20% of his starting body weight) and 7 inches from his waist.

Eric’s success of this year sets an important example for many, as this was NOT his first attempt to lose weight. In fact, Eric participated in last year’s SLMsmart Challenge, the year Eva Miller won her well-deserved grand prize. That year, 2015, Eric was able to lose an impressive 20 lbs. but lost momentum halfway through the competition after experiencing family and employment challenges. Remarkably, Eric was able to recommit himself a year later and become the SLMsmart Champion we celebrate today!

We commend Eric for getting “back in the saddle” this year and claiming the first place prize. Utilizing the Corvette plant’s gym during his breaks, eating a healthy diet of produce and proteins, and incorporating Synergy products into his daily regimen, Eric was able to make his weight loss goals a reality.

Enjoy the video above to see how Eric and his family have been enjoying the benefits of his newly achieved level of Elite Health.

SLMsmart Challenge Winners!


North America’s 2016 SLMsmart Challenge came to an end in May and the winners have been selected! Enthusiastic men and women from all over the continent took their health into their own hands and made positive changes by incorporating powerful Synergy products into their health regimens, eating nutritional foods, and following challenging workout plans. And with money and prizes on the line, each contestant committed to a 90-day journey toward a happier, healthier life!

In the end, a panel of judges chose three winners based on total transformation by viewing their before-and-after pictures. The decision was a difficult one, as many inspiring photos were submitted by some incredible individuals. While our applause goes out to all the participants, we would like to especially congratulate the following three challengers for their winning achievements:



1st Place: Eric Poland
Prize: $1,500

Eric of Kentucky lost 40 lbs. (20% of his body weight) and about 7 inches from his waist. What makes Eric's story all the more interesting is that he also competed in last year's SLMsmart Challenge and lost 20 pounds. Unsatisfied with last year's results, knowing that he could do better, Eric made this second effort and gave it his all. We applaud Eric for his efforts and commitment to making a change.

Eric is a former teacher and coach, a devoted husband, a father to two beautiful children (one of whom has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy), and a full-time employee at the world's only Corvette manufacturing plant. Stay tuned to our blog for more of his fantastic story and learn how he overcame obstacles to achieve greater fitness, healthier weight levels, and a smarter outlook on eating and activity.

2nd Place: Kevin Bitnoff
Prize: $500

The California sun shined on Kevin over the past 90-days as he exercised, ate smart, and worked toward his transformation. "What a life changing experience," Kevin said. "Great products, coaching, and workouts." These three aspects led Kevin to lose 34 lbs. (16% of his total body weight)!

Synergy Team Member and Challenge Coach Tommy Bethards said, "Kevin has done something that is pretty hard to do. He cut a lot of fat without losing much strength. In fact, his whole upper body looks more muscular which, to me, just shows that he was dieting the right way.”

3rd Place: Trevor Pierson

Prize: $250

Trevor doesn’t live far from Synergy HQ in Utah, and upon learning about Synergy’s 90-day Challenge was eager to participate. He hoped to find the success he hadn't found elsewhere. Trevor has sampled a handful of diets throughout his lifetime, finding most to be unrealistic, discouraging, and too drastic for his lifestyle.

Now, using Synergy products, and with the help of SLMsmart Coach Tommy Bethards, Trevor lost 61 lbs. (20% of his starting body weight). He plans to continue progressing toward his ideal weight with the newfound tools and knowledge he discovered through the SLMsmart 90-day Challenge.

Congratulations, to Eric, Kevin, Trevor, and everyone else who participated in the 90-day Challenge!
