Having over 700 professional athletes, it's amazing to see just a sampling of them here. Our associates love the relationship and sharing in peoples' successes, especially with the USSA because we're here in Utah and we have so many athletes right in our backyard.

This is my first time at the convention and it's pretty cool to see how many enthusiastic associates there are here and how big the Team USANA athlete team is and how committed they are as a company and as associates to utilitzing the athletes to spread their brand. It's a pretty fun day with a lot going on and I'm looking forward to getting onstage.
Grete Eliassen, Freeskiing
I got involved at USANA because I'd been doing everything I could on my skis and in the gym and training, but I wanted to take my nutrition to the next level to get a small bit of competitive advantage and I've already gotten that. Being a part of the conference is so amazing because you get to hang out with new athletes, meet new people and seeing the energy in the employees and associates of USANA is pretty incredible.

The USANA Convention is a really fun event and something that's unique for me as a USANA brand ambassador. I truly believe in their products and use them daily. It's something that us as athletes are lucky to have. Their support is crucial to our success.

It's very exciting to be a part of the convention. You don't usually get to meet many of these athletes all in one place--boxers, skiers, figure skaters, speedskaters. It brings everyone together in an exciting atmostphere with a great company.
