Sponsored by Herbalife, Heather and Lukas are constantly setting new goals to help strengthen their performance. Herbalife provides them with the nutrition they need to continue to strive for perfection and helps them get to that next level.

Fueled by Herbalife nutrition, watch how Heather and Lukas prepare and train for triathlons. Herbalife is there to help them prepare, train, and recover from the demanding activities of a triathlete.

Heather Jackson

American professional triathlete Heather Jackson’s accolades include a runner-up finish in the 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championship, three-time Wildflower Triathlon Champion, two-time Ironman 70.3 Oceanside Champion and 2013 Escape from Alcatraz Champion to name a few.

Before becoming an amazing triathlete, Heather was an avid hockey player. She was an English teacher in Thailand and a world history teacher in California. It was in 2009 she decided to become a professional athlete and her triathlon career has been unstoppable ever since.

“When it comes to training and competing, hitting a plateau is inevitable. It’s my job to work that much harder and go beyond it.”

Herbalife proudly sponsors Heather because Herbalife products provide her what she needs before, during and post training sessions and races. Heather calls Herbalife’s support “an absolute game-changer” to her career as an athlete.

Lukas Verzbicas

Professional triathlete Lukas Vezbicas, who still holds the US high school record for 2 miles in 8:29.46, shows the rigorous training sessions that help him continue to strive for excellence in his sport.

Lukas is always ready to take on any challenge that life throws his way. His dedication and passion for running on the track has been a part of his entire life. Why is that? Because his parents were also endurance athletes and he ran in their footsteps. His amazing performance has led him to be the youngest man to win a World Cup in a triathlon.

Lukas’ amazing story goes beyond the sport of triathlon. Listen to his incredible road to recovery after a nearly fatal accident. It’s inspiring and a testament to the dedicated nature of this extraordinary individual.


John Heiss, Ph.D., is the Senior Director of Sports and Fitness at Herbalife, and one of the scientists behind Herbalife24, a line of high-end sports nutrition products. During his initial quest to find an endurance sports nutrition product, he “started to think about what kind of nutrition might improve performance.” And he created a type of product formulation that other nutrition companies didn’t have.

Herbalife24 is performance nutrition designed to empower athletes 24-hours a day. It’s nutritional support to provide what they need as they train, recover and perform in their sport. Herbalife goes beyond providing nutrition for athletes and works with athletes and teams to help them get even better.

Lukas and Heather are only two of the many athletes Herbalife proudly sponsors. From soccer players to rally car drivers to extreme adventurers, Herbalife stands behind excellent and strong athletes who are always up for the next challenge their sport has to offer.
