"People accuse me of being a steroid user all the time."
Hi Francesco, I just wanted to thank you...
About three and a half years ago, I had nothing going for me, I failed out of a nationally ranked and renowned college, loved drinking, and ate whatever and whenever I wanted, and took up smoking to relieve stress...I was 5'6", and a very sloppy 210 lbs...unhappy and depressed from my current situation, I knew I needed something to help boost my self esteem and my life, because if not, I was going to hit rock bottom, and it wouldn’t have been pretty...it was then that I accidently stumbled your MuscleNow website, and immediately ordered your program...it provided the backbone, information, and motivation I needed to lose just about 50 lbs of unwanted fat in about 7 months...I started looking better, feeling amazing, and surprisingly the way people treated me even changed drastically (it’s sad that people base so much on looks, but it’s true)...I went from a sloppy 210, to a decently toned 162...
Now, I have incorporated your basic bodybuilding principles to my life, and I am actually on my way up...I'm working toward my bachelors degree in communications, and I am a certified personal trainer at a local health center (a very respected one in the area at that) and love what I do...After I lost that weight, I went from a slim and slender 162 lbs. to a presently solid 225 lbs (still at 5'6")...and this was done naturally, which is the best part...I've been putting on weight so fast that people accuse me of being a steroid user all the time...
I just wanted to let you know that you have changed my life, and im very grateful that there are people out there like you...
Thank you again.
Hey Francesco, its Chris from Jersey. I hope all is well with you. I just wanted you to know that I finally did that Bodybuilding show that I was telling you about. It's funny...you don't realize how much blood, sweat, and tears go into contest prep until you actually compete in a show. I placed 4th in my weight class, and had a blast. I'm definitely going to do it again.
As for an update on the rest of my life...I managed to get my Associates Degree in Television Production, and I have recently been offered a Full-time position working for a television and feature film post production facility in Midtown Manhattan (NYC). I owe my dedication to reaching goals in my life to the simple principles I learned from Bodybuilding. And I owe my interest in Bodybuilding to you and your program.
How’s it going? I'm doing well myself. I just wanted to give you a shout and an update on what’s been going on with me. I decided a few months back to do another show, so I dieted and trained for 12 weeks, and dropped about 40 lbs. I Started at 215, and weighed in on contest date at 174.5 (just made middle weight!) I placed 5th of 7 competitors in my weight class (although I feel like I should have placed higher.) But I was happy with how I looked, because I know that I did all I could to reach that condition. I didn't cheat on my diet once, and didn't miss a workout. To me, if you do that, the rest is out of you hands.
I'll have you know that I still get emails from potential clients of yours asking what I think about your program. And I always speak very highly of it seeing how I owe my personal bodybuilding success to you and your program, and I also know that the bodybuilding mentality that was sparked from reading MuscleNow contributed to my personal success in life!
Hope all is well, and God Bless!
Just another update from New Jersey. The pre pics were taken about 7 months after my knee reconstruction surgery, and the post pics were taken after a 6 week period. Just about a year ago, (3 weeks after my last competition) I blew out my knee, and needed reconstructive surgery. Although I went to the gym after surgery, I could not put up the weight numbers that I used to, and put on a few lbs. do to the lack of mobility, etc. I decided to get in shape again, and using the MuscleNOW workout, and food list from the program i transformed my body in 6 short weeks. I did not however follow the diet plan exactly. I modified it as I saw fit, and listened to my body. And cardio was not on a set schedule either. I just did it a few times per week. Other than that I think the program speaks for itself.
