LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ViSalus, Inc., the #1 90-day weight-loss and fitness challenge platform in North America, is searching for their 2014 Vi Models. Winners will be featured on the cover of The Challenge Magazine and earn a coveted one-year modeling contract and photo shoot.
Last year, thousands of hopeful Vi Model contestants entered the nationwide contest, which searched for individuals who achieved maximum results from the Body by Vi Challenge™. People tuned in throughout North America as the Vi Model Competition aired live at the WBFF World Championship in Toronto where the 2013 North America Vi Model Winners, Mia St-Aubin and Alfonso Jones, were announced.
"Gracing the cover of The Challenge Magazine and becoming the Vi Model has literally changed the direction and pace of my entire life," said Mia St-Aubin, 2013 Vi Model winner. "As soon as the magazine came out, I felt like I had become a celebrity overnight."
This year, ViSalus takes the competition global with a total of eight winners gracing the covers of four international editions of The Challenge Magazine, spanning North America and Europe. Winners will be announced live on stage at the Company's National Success Training event in Atlanta, November 15-17, 2013.
"We're extremely fortunate to have a fun, passionate and connected community online that cares deeply about our brand," said Blake Mallen, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of ViSalus.
