For this month’s Champions Spotlight we’re happy to introduce you to Texas Distributor Richele Nealeigh.
With 19 moves in just 21 years, Richele knows how to adapt to change. She and her family have lived in Florida, Ohio, Virginia and Texas over the past decade, and with every move she’s brought AdvoCare with her. The Human Resources Director turned personal trainer and nutrition coach made the move to Texas less than a year ago, and the move took place just as things started shutting down for health and safety purposes. But that didn’t stop Richele.
“I owned a gym in Florida, and once we got to Texas I found a job at a local gym. But then quarantine hit and it closed. So I created an online fitness group, we transformed our garage into a gym, and today I am just shy of 78 personal training clients!”
While separate from her AdvoCare business, Richele’s personal training clients are changing their lives through Richele’s incredible guidance and encouragement.
Favorite Spark® flavor
Favorite AdvoCare memory
Most recently, my favorite memory is Beyond You. It was so fun, and I loved being on stage with AdvoCare CEO Patrick Wright. It was comfortable and felt natural. I love any corporate AdvoCare event!
Any fun mixture of AdvoCare products or recipes you enjoy?
I love blending BodyLean25® or Ready-to-Drink Protein Chocolate with peanut butter!

How did you discover AdvoCare?
In January 2013, my sister and I were on a weight-loss journey. She shared an AdvoCare Spark® with me, but I was skeptical. I don’t want to say it, but she sent me Spark and I think I threw it away. Though I turned her down, my sister began taking AdvoCare products. After changing our diets and exercising more, we both lost weight, but the difference was that she felt great and energetic, and I was still exhausted and tired. That’s when I wanted to know more.
My sister and I met up several months later, and I saw that she had so much energy. I started to listen. I learned I could help other people by sharing products and teaching a new healthy lifestyle – helping others is my love language. I was all in! Seven years later, most of my first customers are still ordering from me!
How did you get started?
I talked to my family, neighbors and friends and asked if they wanted to take the products together, workout and create a support group. I also made some simple swaps – I changed wine Wednesdays with friends to Sunday meal prep. I’ve learned that often times it matters less what you are offering, and more that people just want to be part of a community.
How do you share AdvoCare products?
Through simple conversations. I ask myself, “How can I add value to others with the knowledge I have?” I love to share what I love and how it has worked for me. If it’s helped me, why can’t it help others? The biggest key is to use the resources in front of you. I really like the Spark sample pack and recently put together a training on how to share Spark with others. Instead of just handing over one stick pack, you go directly to the web page with potential customers and share how they can try more than one flavor for a consistent amount of time.
What has your experience been building a business in multiple states?
It has been a fun ride, and I am honored that I was able to build a business in ALMOST every region (and while the West Coast region sounds nice, I’m not holding my breath for another move). It has taught me to never get hung up in being afraid to ask – ask for friendships, ask how people feel and about their families, ask how people get active – it helped me get involved, be myself and accept my circumstances.
How has being an AdvoCare Distributor impacted your family?
Such an intense question. I am not even sure that I can pinpoint all the amazing things that have come our way since joining the AdvoCare team. AdvoCare has blessed us with a greater sense of humanity through helping others and giving back. To sum it up AdvoCare has taught me life skills that I can pass down to my family and my circle of influence. It has encouraged me to take chances and be brave, it’s helped me to overcome obstacles, and lastly it has challenged me to look in the mirror and become more. I am so thankful and grateful for AdvoCare’s impact!
How have you adapted to changes at AdvoCare over the years?
I tend to roll with changes. I’ve realized that blessings come from the unplanned and have learned that growth comes from getting uncomfortable. Sometimes we need change to grow.
What do you love most about AdvoCare?
I love that we, as Distributors, are connecting directly with the company who is making the products. The Home Office is accessible, and the lines of communication are always open!
