I purchased the Metabolic
Surge e-book about eight weeks ago and just finished up
the strength and recovery phase. Let me say that I can't
wait until next week so I can start all over. I cannot believe
the results that I got. I really didn't have an accurate
way of measuring my bodyfat when I started, so I got a pair
of Accu-Measure calipers about three weeks into the program.
At that time I weighed 255 at 26% bodyfat and my clothing
were already starting to get loose. Now I weigh 253 with
23% bodyfat. That's a 3% loss [in bodyfat] in only 4
weeks. Unbelieveable! I took before and after pictures
like you recommended and what a difference, especially the
picture from behind.
Also, when you said that
I wouldn't lose muscle and might even add some, I thought
you were a little off your rocker. WAS I WRONG.
Not only did I not lose any, I really slapped it on. Here
is an example of one of my strength gains. Prior to starting
I could flat bench 205 for 5 reps. My last strength and
recovery workout I did 235 for 6 reps. Absolutely every
muscle group saw gains.
Now straight from the heart,
let me thank you very, very much for putting together this
program and offering it at such a reasonable price.
For the last six years, I
have been trying to find a way to shed weight and have had
one failure after another only to wind up being heavier.
You have helped me overcome the biggest obstacle on this
journey, my work schedule. Working 12 hour days is no picnic.
Working out after a 12 hour day would have been insane,
training the way that I always trained. I always lifted
for 45 minutes and then did 30 minutes of cardio 5 or 6
days a week. My diet was never what it should have been
Now I can go after work, hit
it hard and get home and it's only an extra hour. You also
helped me out with some adjustments to the program to accomodate
my schedule. I once asked a trainer at my gym how I could
maximize my training on this schedule and he told me I should
change jobs. He doesn't work there anymore. I was thinking
a few months ago if I look okay next summer I would be happy.
Now I want to see if I can get a six pack for Xmas, and
I am not talking beer.
By the way, my wife, who is
still battling the extra weight from our daughter, who is
three, is 2/3 of the way through the Level One program.
She has seen more results in the
two weeks she has been on your program than she did in the
two months she spent working with a personal trainer.
Don't get me wrong, she did get results, but not this good.
She's planning on doing the full program next. She was so
excited when she pulled out the boxes of her old clothing
this past weekend and started fitting into all of the smaller
Anyway Nick, thanks a million.
You are a fine person and should take pride in this program.
I have been checking out Fitstep.com for my future fitness
needs. Right now I am just going to stick with Metabolic
Surge until I fulfill what I only thought was a dream.
