Water is vital in our day-to-day lives. We need it to function, we need it to live. Yet, many people do not consume enough water daily. We should strive to drink 8–12 glasses of water a day!

Priscilla McRae, THE MAX Challenge

Priscilla is a mother to three teenagers, and 12 years ago her crazy journey began when she came to the United States from Australia so her daughter would be able to receive a heart transplant. Little did they know that America was about to become their new home.

After Priscilla’s daughters health became stabilized, Priscilla found comfort in THE MAX Challenge, helping her take charge of her life back with healthy eating, daily exercise and a positive outlook on life for her and her children.

After gaining almost 80 lbs from the stress of her family’s situation, she managed to lose close to 70lbs through the ten week program and found a new love for fitness. She worked to become a MAX Certified instructor in order to pay it forward to others in similar situations to hers.

Fast forward 5 years and now she is running the Instructor Training program, at THE MAX Challenge, helping to change thousands of people’s lives. With her background in corporate training in human resources, and her passion for giving back to the community, she strives to continue to make a difference to everyone that crosses her path.
