What has happened so far on the program?

I’ve been following the program for about 8 months, and I’ve lost over 20 lbs, 9% of my body fat, and over 23 inches total. I am amazed when I look in the mirror every morning, and I constantly see changes in my body. At first the changes were dramatic and broad, like losing body fat and fitting into clothing sizes I never thought were possible. Now the changes are small, but very satisfying; like seeing my oblique muscles or developing more sculpted arms. While the changes in the way I look make me feel more confident, it’s the changes no one else sees that I love the most. I finally feel healthy, more energetic and strong.

What do you like most about the program?

I love that I don’t have to spend hours upon hours in the gym doing insane cardio routines to get the body of my dreams.

What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?

I approached the book with some skepticism because no other programs had ever worked for me, but after reading the book I really felt that the program made sense. It wasn’t a “fad” diet or a crazy workout plan. I believed it was something I could do.

What are three other benefits of the program?

A huge benefit is having access to Mike Matthews for advice, tips, and encouragement. It really helps to know that the person who wrote the book is real and cares about my progress. Another benefit of the program is understanding how my body works. I know exactly what I need to eat and how I need to exercise to see the results I want. I also highly recommend purchasing the book and keeping it on-hand as a reference. I find myself frequently checking back to make sure I’m still following the plan.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking for real and lasting results. It’s something you can maintain for the rest of your life.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


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 do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

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 $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
