I realized early in my business that people want results. And they want them FAST!

If you can't deliver better results than the competition -- you're finished!

My typical client who comes to me to drop fat and get lean has usually tried, on average, seven previous workout programs and diets. And failed. So I have to succeed. And I have to succeed fast.

It was VERY clear to me that if I got fast results - for example.. let's say the first ten pounds of fat off a person in record time - in other words they see fast, effective weight loss - then that client stayed with me for life. If I couldn't deliver, they were gone. In order to succeed in the fitness business I had to deliver better results than anyone else, quicker than anyone else.

After studying the field for years, reading everything I could get my hands on, including several other well respected fitness trainers programs, I started to see why some programs worked well and others were just a waste of your time and money.

Instead of looking at the differences between programs (which is a great way to confuse yourself!!!) I started to look at the similarities between the successful ones. I examined them. I understood them. And I improved them!

It was clear that the concept of SYNERGY - the 'whole' being greater than the sum of the parts, was one of the keys to the successful programs.

With a good diet, an individual could easily lose 1lb per week, with a good cardio program (not an aerobics program), an individual could lose another 1lb per week, and with a good resistance training program aimed exclusively at fat loss, an individual could lose another 1lb per week.

But most programs at best, covered two of these methods. Others would have you doing bodybuilding weight routines to make you bigger and long slow cardio routines to make you smaller. Idiotic at best. And they all may have worked a little- but they definitely didn't work optimally.

If the diet alone could produce a pound of weight loss, and the cardio program could provide a pound of weight loss, and the resistance program could produce another pound - that's an average of three pounds per week.

So how come no one was losing more than about 1-2 pounds per week total?

Why did the results seem to cancel each other out -- instead of complimenting each other?

Then I started reading the research -- finding out what worked....and what didn't:

I discovered:

A diet study that shows a simple change can increase dietary compliance and fat loss -- without reducing calories

A 1998 study that showed that the addition of 45 minutes of hard aerobic training, 5 times a week for twelve weeks - had no effect on fat loss!

One 1994 showed an interval training method to reduce body fat (skinfold measurements) nine times more than traditional cardio training -- despite taking less time

Another study (1999) showed that the addition of a specific resistance training program increased fat loss by 35% over diet plus aerobic training

A 2002 study used an Afterburn-type approach to training - and showed an elevation of metabolism for 38 hours post workout!
So I started thinking...

What if I designed the ULTIMATE cardio routine for fat loss?

AND the ULTIMATE nutrition plan?

AND a resistance training routine that wasn't based on outdated bodybuilding routines - but one designed EXCLUSIVELY to burn massive amounts of fat?

And - the real key - what if I designed them, tweaked them and modified them to COMPLEMENT each other instead of COUNTERACTING each other?

So I did.


This time the total fat lost was greater than the sum of the parts!! Clients who could lose 1lb per week with each method were able to lose sometimes up to 3, 4 or 5lbs per week when using the EXACT combination as I prescribed it!

By manipulating a few key variables to create a strategic combination of these activities - targeted fat loss nutrition, cardio and a specific metabolic resistance training program, my clients were able to get BETTER results than before. And in less time than with any other method.


"a workout program that incinerates fat faster than a crematorium on sumo night."

Not the most politically correct statement I know! But I think you get the picture.

Who Else Want to BURN 8,000 calories by the 4th of July

As you all know the next camp starts June 11th and will go to 1 day after the 4th of July.

What kind of shape do you think you can be in for that 4th of July BBQ.

Fireworks shape!!! or Hamburger bun shape:(

Each Boot Camp burns about 500 calories and 4 times per week for 4 weeks is 8,000 calories

Some of the questions that are coming up:

Can I start before the 11th?

Can I enroll with a friend?

Is there A Meal Plan?

You want more results.

You may even know what to eat. How to work
out. What to do and when to do it.

The real problem you face is that you just don't
do it.

For 4 weeks straight, we want to personally
help you do it.

Do it right.

Do it with an accountability group that you
can be a member of for the rest of your life.

Do it with personal LIVE coaching from US.

But we can only take 12 people per class

Any more than that would make our
camps too big.

We want to keep this intimate.


Hands-on and practical.

Why Should You Join Boot Camp?
"Well it was here - Memorial Day Weekend. The official start of Summer. The great "unveiling" - when the shirts come off, the swimsuits go on and the entire.The World found out exactly how good or bad your dieting and exercising was for the last 3-4 months.
Were you ready? :)

If not - you have two more BIG weekends this Summer in which to dial in your physique and make a huge difference. That's right - it's not over --
Your next goal is Independence Day - July 4th - only five weeks away.

Your next goal is the end of summer - the Labor Day weekend (first weekend in September). This is currently fourteen weeks away. So if you're looking a little flabby this weekend or feeling a little embarrassed about your physique -- you can still make amazing changes. It's never too late.
This is an opportunity for you to look completely shredded - rock hard legs and abs by Summer's end."

Supplements: A multivitamin and a fish oil supplement are vital though - but more for your overall health. a protein shake or meal replacement powder can be useful for convenience but are nothing more than high quality food. Check Out PROGRADE here:
