. . . then this might be the most important letter you'll read this year.

From: Mike Matthews
You probably know me already if you’re reading this.
I’m the author of several bestselling health and fitness books and founder of Legion, and here’s the deal:
No matter how genetically “cursed” you might think you are, and no matter how lost you might feel after trying and abandoning many types of workout and diet routines, you absolutely, positively can have the lean, strong, ripped body of your dreams.
You see, the truth is getting into awesome shape isn’t nearly as torturous as the fitness industry wants you to believe.
Here’s what I mean...
Those are just a FEW of the hundreds of harmful lies and myths that keep people from ever achieving the types of bodies they really want.
And while I could tout the 1,000,000+ books I’ve sold in the last three years or the 2,500,000+ visits my websites get every month...that’s not why you should listen to me.
You should listen to me because I’ve made every mistake in the book and know what works and what doesn’t.
I don’t have outstanding genetics and wasn’t ripped my entire life. I was your normal skinny kid that got into weightlifting to impress girls, and I had no clue what I was doing at first.
Case in point?
Sure, I had made some gains...but the type of gains you’d hope for after 7 years of lifting 5 to 6 days per week? Not so much.
As you can imagine, I wasn’t very thrilled.
I was so used to my routine that I just went through the actions every day, but I was certain I just didn’t have the genetics to look good or get really strong or that it would require steroids.
It turns out I was wrong.
I was just making a some of the worst (and most common) fitness mistakes out there. Things like...
And once I started doing things correctly, EVERYTHING changed, quickly and dramatically.
Here’s what I mean:
I’ve never used anabolic steroids or fat loss drugs, and this is my current “summer look” of about 7% body fat (plus a shameless plug for my adorable son Lenox haha).
I stay pretty strong, too:
I’m not showing you these things to brag, either.
I just want to show you that I WALK THE WALK because I have a hard time taking fitness advice from someone that doesn’t look the part.
So here’s the bottom line...
I’ve been training for over a decade now and I know EXACTLY what it’s like to be stuck in a rut...to have NO clue if you’re training correctly...to want to rip my hair out trying to figure out how to get lean...to want to just THROW IN THE TOWEL...and to have just about every other problem most people grapple with.
Fortunately, I “toughed it out” and also know exactly what it takes to put all this nonsense to rest and finally achieve the type of physique we really want.
That said, coaches and trainers are a dime a dozen. If you’re skeptical, you should be...Schedule My Free Consultation
I know this might sound COMPLETELY arrogant but after speaking and working with thousands of people over the years, I’m thoroughly convinced of the following:
Many personal trainers and nutritionists have their hearts in the right place but, unfortunately, don’t know what the hell they’re doing.
Low-carb starvation dieting is rampant. Weightlifting is rarely programmed correctly. "Clean eating" is WORSHIPPED while diet fundamentals like energy and macronutrient balance are completely ignored. Hours and hours of cardio are ordered as MANDATORY for getting lean.
The problems go on and on.
You can spot these bad trainers and coaches pretty easily: their clients look exactly the same month after month.
(They themselves also rarely even qualify as "fit" let alone ripped, which isn’t a good sign.)
You see, the truth is it doesn’t take much to get your personal trainer or nutritionist certifications.
You do a CPR class and some online studying, which teaches you just about nothing of real practical value. Then you take a couple tests that are basically impossible to fail and voila...you can now hang your shingle up as a “professional” without ever having to prove you can actually get results.
Another MAJOR problem with how many trainers and nutritionists operate boils down to an underlying conflict of interests.
Your and their goals are often very different.
You want a trainer to teach you how to get and stay fit but he or she wants as many paying clients as possible, and the easiest way to achieve that is to keep existing clients for as long as possible.
I know that might sound cynical, and I really don’t think the majority of trainers mean any harm, but it’s just a matter of economic incentives.
Now, my point here isn’t that I’m so righteous and clever and everyone else is criminal scum.
My point is I like to do things differently and my coaching services reflect that credo.
You see, every week I get SCORES of emails and social media messages from people that almost BEG to work with me on a one-on-one basis, regardless of the cost.
As fun as it sounds to take on a bunch of coaching clients and just chat with cool people on Skype all day...there’s just NO way I can do it.
Between my writing, responding to readers and followers, researching, and various business building activities, I don’t think I could personally give coaching clients the level of service that I would want.
And so here’s how I have always replied to requests for 1-on-1 coaching:
“I wish I could somehow work that into my schedule but it’s just not possible...but I’m happy to answer any questions, so fire away.”
This has allowed me to meet and help THOUSANDS of people over the years, but eventually it became clear that I was doing my readers and followers a bigger disservice by not figuring something out.
Well I got to work on a solution, and here's the result...
I can’t personally work with everyone that wants 1-on-1 attention but I CAN build and oversee a select team of coaches that can then work with people that need help.
So that’s exactly what I’ve done.
My coaches know FIRSTHAND what it takes to lose fat, build muscle, and get strong and healthy.
We’ve helped people of ALL ages, circumstances, and needs, so don’t worry--no matter how complicated or hopeless you might think your situation is, we’ll have a solution and we’ll get results.
Here's just a small sample of people we've helped get into the best shape of their lives:
I’m serious. I really do hope you fire us after 90 days.
Not because we failed or disappointed you but because we’ve done our jobs SO WELL that we’re no longer needed.
Some people think that’s a bad business model. I disagree.
They assume that “good” business is simply the kind that extracts the MAXIMUM amount of money out of people. Well, I think it’s delivering products and services that WOW people.
And that’s why we’re going to do more than dramatically improve your physique in the next 90 days.
More importantly, we’re going to teach you HOW TO ACHIEVE AND MAINTAIN YOUR IDEAL PHYSIQUE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
Personal training and nutrition consulting gets REALLY expensive REALLY fast.
Let’s say you wanted to work out five days per week for about an hour per day and you go to a trainer to get started.
The average rate for a personal trainer is $60 per hour (and many charge much more), so that’s at least $300 per week or $1,200 per month. Some trainers also charge “initial consultation” and “setup” fees that can range from $100 to 200.
That means you’d be spending no less than $3,600 for your first three months, but wait...what about the diet?
Well that’s going to cost more.
If you go and see a nutritionist, you’d pay $100 to 200 for your initial meeting and, on average, about $600 per month for regular check-ins and dietary modifications and advice. So there’s another $1,900 to add to your 3-month costs.
This brings your grand total to $5,500 for your first 90 days.
And then there’s the kicker.
After spending all that money and time, there's a VERY good chance you'll end up like the rest of their clients: completely disappointed in your results and with NO clue what to do next.
I know how sucky all that is because I've been there myself, handing over THOUSANDS of dollars for no results.
I know how awkward it is when your prepaid package is up and you know you probably shouldn't buy another but you feel bad quitting. And how UTTERLY DISCOURAGING it is to finally realize that all the time and money you've spent hasn't gotten you even CLOSE to your ultimate goal.
Well, that's why I'm offering this service.
I want you to have a VERY different coaching experience. The experience that I WISH I could have had when I started training.
Here’s what I mean...
Real, tangible, RESULTS that you can see in your workout performance, mirror, and clothing.
Not encouraging or honeyed words or promises or hope. You can get all that from your mom.
RESULTS. Clear, unmistakable, measurable RESULTS.
Don’t pay to just get told what to do.
My guess is you want to learn the "whys" and "hows" so you can eventually create and modify your own diet and training plans and self-sufficiently work toward your goals.
Don’t pay out the nose for the help.
There's no arguing that this service has an IMMENSE value--it's hard to put a price tag on the body of your dreams and understanding how to maintain it for the rest of your life.
But hey, we’re human--we love it when we buy something and receive FAR MORE than we expected.
Well, I’ve worked hard to put together what I feel is the exact coaching program that I would want if I were in your shoes.
I’ve put a LOT of thought and work into building out these services because I want them to be the hands down BEST online fitness coaching program available.
That's why I offer THREE types of coaching services:
Which is going to be right for you?
Well, it depends on where you’re at, where you’ve been, and where you want to be.
If you’re overwhelmed by all the information out there on how to get ripped and aren’t sure what will work and what won’t...
...and if you’re frustrated with how little progress you’ve made with your physique and aren’t sure what to do next...
...and if you just want a professional coach to manage every aspect of your diet, training, and supplementation to ensure you gain muscle and lose fat faster than you ever thought possible...
...and to answer all of your most pressing questions, give you sound, science-based advice, review your progress, and update your plans as needed...
...then Legion coaching is for YOU.
If you’re struggling with your diet, don’t know what you should be eating and why, or just aren’t getting the results that you want from your workouts...
...and if you want 100% personalized meal plans to help you shred fat, build lean muscle, and get healthy...
...and ongoing access to a professional nutrition coach that can answer your questions, give you advice, review your progress, and update your meal plans as needed...
....then you’re in the right place.
And if you’re struggling to gain muscle and strength or break through a stubborn training plateau, or if you just aren’t sure what types of workouts are going to get you the body you really want as quickly as possible...
...and if you want 100% personalized training plans to help you get strong, build muscle, and avoid injury...
...then we can help.
The bottom line is transforming your body just isn’t that difficult when you have the right plan and help.
And that’s exactly what you get when you sign up for my one-on-one coaching service.
We take you by the hand and walk you through the entire process, from calculating your calories and macros to creating your custom meal and exercise plans to making adjustments based on how your body responds and more.
Basically, we do everything we can to get you the absolute best possible results, and that’s why we can help you can achieve more in just 90 days than most people do in years.Schedule My Free Consultation
But listen. This isn’t for everyone...
This Is Not For You If...
Experience has taught us that there are three types of people we can’t help:
On the other hand, if you’re looking for someone to take away all the stress of your diet and training, with an inclusive, done-for-you service, we’ll be a good fit.
You’ll become part of an EXCLUSIVE group of clients that get access to my hand-picked coaches, and we’ll take care of everything.
So, if we’re still on the same page...
Here’s What I Want You to Do Next
Are you ready to take the first step toward your best body ever?
Your first step is scheduling a free consultation call so we can learn where you’re at, where you’ve been, and where you want to be, and ensure that we are indeed right for you.
Click here to schedule your free consultation call now:Schedule My Free Consultation
This is NOT a high-pressure sales call, by the way. It’s a friendly chat to determine a) if you’re qualified for the service, and b) if we’re 100% certain we can get you to where you want to be.
We only accept people who we know we can hit a grand slam with, and that’s why our coaching comes with a very simple money-back guarantee:
You either love the experience and are thrilled with your results, or you get every penny you’ve paid back.
It’s that simple.
I’m so confident that you will think this is the best investment you’ve made in yourself in a long time that I’m willing to take all the risk. We’ll do our jobs or we won’t get paid.
But honestly I’m not worried about you refunding because I believe in this service THAT MUCH.
People don’t refund because this service doesn’t just change their bodies—it changes their lives.
The benefits of proper diet and training are instant. You enjoy better moods and energy levels. You never feel starved or food deprived again. You love your workouts. And when you start seeing the changes in the mirror, the party really begins.
Eventually, you become the person everyone envies. The person with the killer body that somehow knows all the “secrets.”
So don’t waste another minute. You have nothing to lose, so schedule your call now:Schedule My Free Consultation
This opportunity is limited because of the amount of one-on-one time each of our coaches give to their clients to give them results.
Therefore, it’s physically impossible for our coaches to work with more than a handful of people at any given time.
Also, you should realize there’s a very large demand for personal “do it for me” coaching from my company, and what I’m offering you is unprecedented.
So if you feel this is right for you, click here and let's get started.
No matter what you decide to buy, you're always protected by our ironclad, 100% money-back guarantee that works like this:
If you don't absolutely love our stuff for whatever reason, you get a prompt and courteous refund. No forms to fill out or hoops to jump through.
That means you can say "yes" now and decide later. You really have nothing to lose.
Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profits so our shipping is 100% free!
Okay, we do dig on profits, but we also go in for happy customers, and free shipping works like gangbusters.
So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $199.
Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money.
That said, as most international customers spend about $200 with us each time they shop, this setup is a win-win.
And no matter what you decide to buy, you’re always protected by our ironclad, 100% money-back guarantee that works like this:
If you don’t absolutely love our stuff for whatever reason, you get a prompt and courteous refund. No forms to fill out or hoops to jump through.
That means you can say “yes” now and decide later. You really have nothing to lose.
Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.
That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.
Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.
And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.
That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.
We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.
Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?
Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.
While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.
That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.
Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.
Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
