ARIIX, an international opportunity company that promotes healthy, toxin-free living, is pleased to announce ARIIX Team Leader Omar Moreno’s recent first-place finish in his division in the National Gym Association (NGA) Northern States Natural Body Building competition.
Moreno’s victory, his third first-place win during the past year, grants him eligibility to advance to professional status within the NGA, to compete at the national level, and to become a trainer and mentor for up-and-coming bodybuilding competitors.
Moreno, who provides support for ARIIX representatives in North America, Canada, the Netherlands, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking market, has been competing for the last year and a half, when he made the decision to change his both his diet and his lifestyle.
“My father was diagnosed with diabetes and it inspired me to make a change in my own life,” explains Moreno. “I was tired of eating out, and how it made me feel, not to mention all the money I was spending. I changed my diet, did a lot of research, and started working out regularly.”
Moreno’s decision began in October 2013, when he accepted the invitation of a friend who was looking for training support for an upcoming bodybuilding competition. Working in the crowded gym and helping his friend perfect his routine, Moreno was occasionally approached by others and encouraged to enter the contest himself.
Learning as he went, Moreno started training only weeks before the event, starting with a strict diet and workout regimen. He was amazed when he walked away from the competition with a first place award, and has been hooked ever since. Moreno took another first in his next competition the following April, for which he training with a certified NGA professional.
The National Gym Association, a not-for-profit organization, sponsored all of Moreno’s competitions. They are the largest promoter of natural bodybuilding contests in the world, for which all participants must be tested and free of performance-enhancing products or drugs.
“A lot of people have asked me how I trained and what products I use. ARIIX products are perfect because they are all natural. I depend especially on Restoriix, Omega-Q, and the Optimals vitamins and minerals as part of my regimen. Restoriix gives me the ability to recover quickly from the intense training I do every day. I really noticed a big difference when I started using it.”
Moreno’s winning streak has created a ripple effect in the lives of those around him as well.
“I’ve been training my younger sister in California, who just placed fourth in her first show this past September. My father, who has been inspired with the way my sister and I have transformed our bodies and our health, has also become more aware of his diet and how food affects his life. I’m amazed at the change this has made in our entire family,” he explains.
“Winning this event has opened doors to a lot of possibilities for me. Sponsorships, training certification, competing at international-level events and helping to inspire positive change in the lives of others are just the beginning.”
“Omar’s example is inspiring to us all,” says Fred Cooper, ARIIX CEO. “His commitment to natural health and fitness, and his desire to help others improve their own health makes us proud to be a part of the process. We are pleased to congratulate him on his recent victories and look forward to watching him continue to progress and inspire people in the world of natural bodybuilding.”
