This is 21-year-old mountain biking pro Oskar Macuk—Szczecin native, daredevil and Synergy enthusiast. If you happen to catch a mountain biking competition in Poland or its surrounding countries, you’ll most likely spot Oskar throwing endless backflips and barspins in zebra pants. What powers his performance, you ask? ProArgi-9+ and e9, to name a few.
“Synergy products are an important part of training for me because they help me push my limits as an athlete,” Oskar said.
While Oskar is best known for his insatiable appetite for adrenaline and jaw-dropping stunts, he is also a dedicated student studying physiotherapy and a classic rock fan who dreams of traveling the world one mountain biking competition at a time.
He lives the Dalai Lama’s words: “In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision,” a sentiment that is right in line with Synergy values.
We’re honored that competitive and inspiring athletes like Oskar are adding Synergy products to their training routines. Can’t wait to see the stunts that Oskar pulls next!
Transforming Minds with Healthy Living With only one week left in the SLMsmart 90-Day Challenge, we’ve surveyed a few of our dedicated participants to see what has changed in their body transformation pursuit.
From what we’ve gathered so far, one major change is apparent in each participant we’ve talked to. Through the 90-day Challenge, these individuals have learned to reprogram their brains for healthy living. It hasn’t been an easy road for many, but with time and practice, participants have built the mental strength to exercise and make healthy meal choices thanks to SLMsmart coaches Drew and Lynn and the 90-day Challenge smartphone app.
“Beyond seeing a physical change in our participants, I’ve noticed that these people really believe in themselves now,” said SLMsmart Coach Drew Manning. “They have seen success and are so much more positive. While this has been a major learning process for our participants, it has also been an uplifting process. They’ve allowed themselves to love their bodies and what they are capable of.”
Challenge participants are coming out of the experience feeling in control of their health and their lives. Mental and emotional change are perhaps the most important elements of making real and lasting change.
“Before the challenge, if there was a bag a candy I’d be grabbing for it. I don’t care for it now. It only took a couple weeks to get to this point. I’ve found that my meal plan keeps me incredibly full to the point where I don’t think about food. I was overwhelmed at first; it was an emotional roller coaster, but your head clears up and you start understanding what you need to do. Subtly, the discipline I’ve learned in diet and exercise has leaked into other areas of my life. I have the determination to follow through on other goals I’ve set for myself, including goals in my Synergy business.”
“My personal motto throughout this challenge has been ‘Do it today!’ What I mean by this is don’t let a lack of motivation stop from exercising. There are so many exercises you can do at home without equipment. Improvise! Putting my hiking boots on and carrying gallon jugs of water gets the job done. Drew taught me to constantly re-evaluate where I am in training and to push myself to do new workouts that will keep my heart rate up. I know what I need to do now to keep this going!”
Pleasant Grove, Utah
“Long-time patterns of stress eating and a negative self image put me through mental torment that resulted in never-ending weight gain. I was committed to free myself of this torment without little thought of what would actually happen. It wasn’t long before I realized that this experience was going to be a life changer if I would give it everything I had. I committed my mind and my body followed. I was frustrated at first, but I slowly realized my clothes feeling differently. Food no longer controls me and my confidence has returned. I’ve realized that no matter who you are, it’s never too late to change.”
These participants now have the tools to continue on this healthy path long after the challenge ends May 1, 2015. Participants are eager to unveil their unbelievable transformations and we can’t wait to see what they’ve accomplished.
These points are updated in real time so you’ll know the moment that you earn a point toward your all-expenses-paid dream vacation with Synergy.

Synergy’s Paraben-Free Skin Care
This Mother’s Day, Synergy is giving Moms the perfect package for pampering at a 50% discount! Selected Elemence Skin Care products have been picked and packaged to give your mom the healthy glow she has always wanted. CLICK HERE to purchase now.
This paraben-free line is designed to nourish, cleanse and beautify—no matter what skin type you are.
What does it mean to be paraben-free?
Parabens are chemical preservatives found in most cosmetic products on the market today, which includes any product used to restore an individual’s appearance from shampoo to mascara. The three most commonly used parabens are butylparaben, propylparaben and methylparaben, but often, more than one paraben is used in a single product to protect the formula against microorganisms.
While parabens are highly effective at preserving cosmetic products, there has been speculation over the years about whether or not this chemical can be harmful. Whether it is or isn’t harmful is up for debate, but Synergy decided to avoid the issue by using the mildest, safest ingredients possible.
Each product in the Elemence line was formulated with natural ingredients and scientific technology that targets everything your skin needs to look picture perfect. Give your mom—and yourself—the gift of a spa-worthy facial every day with safe products you can trust. Discover the skin-enhancing power of Elemence products and see the difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
