What Fuels You to Pursue Your Passions?

This week we had a chance to speak with our brand ambassadors to find out what fuels them. At Red Leaf our passions and work are fueled by many things. We are very passionate about the products we sell, and we are fueled by our mission to help our customers, brand ambassadors, and communities live their healthiest lives.

Red Leaf is passionate about supporting each of you on the road to overall wellness and dedicated to giving back to different organizations throughout our community. Most importantly, Red Leaf is fueled by you.

Recently, we had the opportunity to give back to the community by sponsoring a beverage cart and the longest put at a charity golf event with over 140 golfers. Financial donations from the event benefitted Same as U, a non-profit serving young adults with developmental disabilities in and around the Noblesville community.

Red Leaf is excited to continue to support the community and hear what all of you are passionate about. Check out our ambassadors’ responses about what they’re passionate about, what fuels them, and how Red Leaf fits into their healthy lifestyle:


Alex Paul 

Alex is our resident traveling photographer and many of the lifestyle photos you see on our feed each week are courtesy of his adventures. Alex is a college student at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.

“[I’m passionate about] gaining new experiences through travel! It’s incredibly humbling to have your mind blown visiting a place and having all preconceptions thrown out the window.”

“Living the most active lifestyle I can fuels me. It keeps me on my toes and always up for adventure. I know that I’ll be a better person regardless of what experience  the adventure brings.”

“My favorite Red Leaf product is the Cranberry Lime Pre-Workout. It comes in handy when I need to stay hydrated and energized on a long drive or hike.”


John Loeffel

John is the newest addition to our Red Leaf team. He is a Division-One Cross Country and and Track athlete (and one of the fastest people we know)!

“I’m most passionate about my health and level of fitness.”

“My beautiful mother fuels my passion to pursue anything. She’s the reason I’ve made it this far. She had a long battle with breast cancer and beat it… she’s the toughest person I’ve ever met.”

Collagen peptides [are] my favorite product from Red Leaf. Collagen is something that is overlooked in the workout/athletic world, [but] it’s an extremely important supplement everyone need to take, not just athletes. Collagen has lots of great benefits such as helping protect your joints and tissues. It’s also good for your skin, hair, bones, and helps promote weight loss!”

Chris Hasse

Chris is one of our long-standing ambassadors and is the head coach at F45 North Fishers, located on the north side of Indianapolis, IN.

“I’m most passionate about helping as many people as possible live healthier lives and achieve their fitness goals.”

“I get to fuel my passion every day at work when I train. I’m very lucky in that respect.”

“My go-to product is the Cranberry Lime Pre-Workout. It helps me power through my workouts especially on long days.”


Savannah Dysard 

Savannah is a nutrition coach and entrepreneur starting her own business, Wellness by Sav. She just announced the release of her cookbook, so be sure to check it out.

“I’m most passionate about empowering women to rediscover themselves by defining their health and nutrition on their own terms and nutria connection between their mind and body.”

“These days we are inundated with ads, lifestyle advice trends, options, and judgements. Our stress and anxiety levels are higher than ever before, and many of us are expected to ‘do it all.’ Once I discovered that I wasn’t living life for me, I knew something had to change. I focused on rediscovering myself: what habits did I actually WANT to keep, which habits did I have because society said so, etc. I started to listen to my body in new ways, and I began fueling my body with what felt good to ME. Loving and accepting ourselves for who we are and what we want shouldn’t be as difficult as we often make it out to be. This is what fuels me.”

Collagen! I include collagen almost every day of my morning routine. I find that it’s a great way to support my skin and gut health.”


Rick Wells

“I’m most passionate about educating and mentoring our youth. This is my life’s work, and it not only keeps me going, it keeps me grounded. It satisfies the soul to know what you are to be doing and what brings meaning to your life. “

“I have 3 things that fuel me: my work, my kids, and my health. My work for most of my adult life has been centered around education and leadership. Being there for people with a mind toward service has allowed me to continue the legacy of people who have done that for me. For example, Coach Gene Schmidt, Dr. Diana LaRocco, and my Uncle Walter.

It’s hard for me to explain how enjoyable it is to see my kids develop into the fine human beings they are. I don’t take the time with them for granted, and I’m there for them with the life lessons I’ve learned throughout my years. My health and wellness is pivotal to my lifestyle. It takes strength and energy to enjoy life and that’s why my intention of being “vital in the old age” has been a central strategy of how I spend my time. To do well you have to be well.”

“I would like to say the Blueberry Açai Pre-Workout is my favorite, because it’s delicious and does the job! However, the Red Leaf Recovery Balm is used by my family for all kinds of stuff like cuts, scratches, and skin irritations. It’s magical!”
