Having a brother is life’s way of granting you a best friend. And that’s just the kind of relationship Drako and Keanu Lerma have always strived to build with one another. For the past three years, they’ve added business partners to the list of connections they share, as they engaged in a fitness, nutrition and personal development journey together. They say that two heads are better than one, well, how about two health coaches?

 

Keanu Lerma (KL): I’m 20 years old and my role model is my big brother, Drako.  Even though we are 13 years apart, the age gap has never kept us from being truly close and undertaking projects together. In fact, he inspired me to get to know Herbalife Nutrition.

 

Drako Lerma (DL): I call Keanu “my little big brother,” because he never ceases to amaze me with his courage and commitment. We have always been enthusiastic about fitness, but we didn’t always achieve our fitness goals. Then, three years ago, I added Herbalife Nutrition products to my fitness regimen. To be completely honest, what got me at first was the flavor: the Formula 1 shakes are my favorite tasting!

What kept me was the progress I was seeing.  The combination of Herbalife Nutrition products with regular physical activity and a balanced diet gave Keanu and me the opportunity to get the results we had worked so hard for.* We gained lean muscle, lowered our body fat and felt energized. We were so excited that we decided to take it to the next level and become Herbalife Nutrition independent distributors to help more people feel as healthy and happy as we are.

 

KL: Learning about good nutrition can be tough, though. It is not easy to shed fears, misconceptions and embrace new information that will change your lifestyle. People are always surprised to learn that Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 Shakes are not just a beverage that tastes great but a full, nutritious meal that will provide you with the protein, minerals and vitamins that you may struggle to get on your own. 

 

DL: We have an amazing opportunity to educate people, not just about Herbalife Nutrition products, but about how proper nutrition affects their daily lives. Our purpose is to teach them how to fuel their body with the best ingredients in order to get the best  results possible for a personal transformation inside and out. 

 

KL: Our favorite part is seeing people realize how much they have transformed themselves. When they feel their clothes are getting looser, their muscle is starting to pop, and their confidence is soaring, the look on their faces is wonderful.

 

DL: It’s a look that says: “This is working, this is something I can stick to.” They are able to reach their goals and discover new ones they never even knew they had. They are coached by a distributor who encourages and teaches them about good nutrition on a daily basis and they are also feeling the support of an awesome community. Those things make them feel they are not alone in this journey.

It is great to achieve your personal transformation, but to lead someone else to his or her own, is a feeling that’s second to none.
