Herbalife was established in the 1980’s. Originally starting out on the west coast, the company focused on weight management products. They would gradually grow over the years and expand their company as well as line of products. Mark Hughes is the founder of the company and began by selling the Herbalife products out of his vehicle. The passing of his mother is what inspired him to do this. Mark had a vision to enhance people’s health. Herbalife initially started with one product and as the time went on they expanded into other areas of consumer goods. The company is a direct selling organization that provides incentive programs for their employees. They currently have manufacturing facilities in China as well as the United States. The goal of Herbalife is to empower people fiscally and financially.

Sebastian is sponsored by Herbalife and is supported by their efficient line of products. He recently led a team of extreme athletes to the North Pole.

Copeland has also been to Greenland and many other parts of the world. He mentions that every step is painful yet motivating at the same time. Putting one foot in front of the other is the mentality that he has kept throughout the years.
