For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re happy and excited to introduce you to AdvoCare® Distributor Cindy Mejia.
In 2014, Cindy Mejia hit a plateau. She had started her weight-loss journey two years before but just couldn’t seem to meet her goals. That’s when she found AdvoCare on social media. She began taking the products and “the rest is history”. Today, this clinical coordinator and social media influencer has more than met her goals – she’s preparing for her second body building competition and sharing her passion for fitness wherever she can.
Favorite Spark® flavors
I cannot live without AdvoCare Catalyst® & AdvoCare Spark®.
Favorite AdvoCare® memory
My favorite memory is from last year, receiving that phone call from Griselle at the AdvoCare home office, letting me know I earned my first incentive trip (to Punta Mita, Mexico) with AdvoCare. I was overjoyed! I saw other Distributors earn trips in the past and always thought how nice it would be, and I worked hard then I finally earned one! I took my husband with me, and we had an amazing time – AdvoCare knows how to party!
How did you discover AdvoCare®?
I discovered AdvoCare through Instagram in 2014. I started following an AdvoCare Distributor who introduced me to the 24-Day JumpStart®, and the rest is history. She and her husband were promoting the products, which interested me because they were real people with real results. I had lost weight before AdvoCare but had hit a plateau; the JumpStart helped me reach my goals. I was all in and became a Distributor right away!
How do you share AdvoCare® products?
At first, I wasn’t trying to sell or share the products…I joined to get a discount for myself. However, I did share my progress on Instagram. I had started a page with my friends and family for accountability when I began my weight-loss journey. There, I shared my passion for fitness and the AdvoCare products I was taking. Soon friends started asking about AdvoCare and saying things like, “you look so good.” I had them try Spark and they loved it, too! Today, I am a fitness social media influencer so most of my sharing is done via Instagram and in person at the gym.
What’s your number one tip for sharing AdvoCare®?
Share how much you truly love the products. Be your most authentic self and people will gravitate toward you. Your story will inspire people, so be truthful in a world of so much chaos.
What’s your top tip for sharing AdvoCare® on social media?
Make sure you are taking the products too. Show your audience what you are doing and which products you are taking, and tell them why. Make a post of yourself preparing your Spark and engage them. I also like to show myself trying new products. Share why you love what you love.
How has AdvoCare® impacted your family?
AdvoCare has been a blessing to my family and friends. I shared Spark with them right away and many of them joined our JumpStart group, too. They all love it, and we have changed our lifestyles in the healthiest way possible.
What’s something you have learned through AdvoCare®?
I’ve learned that AdvoCare isn’t just a business, it is a family and they truly care about their customers, Distributors and employees. I love being a part of this company because they make you feel like family!
How have you grown since first becoming a Distributor?
I initially became a Distributor for myself to obtain the discounts, but as time went on and my body kept changing, people wanted to learn more about what I was doing. I realized I love fitness and sharing my passion, so I became a personal trainer for a time and studied nutrition. I became a fitness influencer without even trying just because I decided to share with the world which supplements I consume and how I eat. AdvoCare opened up a passion to teach and change lives that I didn’t know existed in me.
What is your favorite part of being with AdvoCare®?
The friendships I’ve built along the way with many clients who have become family.
How has your health and fitness journey evolved over time?
I used to weigh nearly 200 pounds, and while being part of the AdvoCare® family I’ve evolved and transformed my body many times with the help of AdvoCare products, good nutrition and exercise. I even competed in a bodybuilding competition and am training for my second competition now
What advice would you give to a Distributor just starting out?
Try all of the AdvoCare® products and figure out which that interest you. Having a niche and being educated makes it easier to share.
What brings you the most joy in life?
Besides my husband and dog, AdvoCare® does! I love sharing my experience with people to show them that being healthy doesn’t have to be boring. I’m a helper by nature and being able to share my love for fitness brings me so much joy.
Are there any fun mixtures or recipes you enjoy using AdvoCare® products?
Lime seltzer water mixed with Spark® Cherry!
