What has happened so far on the program?

I’ve never lifted before and felt a bit overwhelmed by all the information at first, so I eased my way into it gently. I started out concentrating on getting comfortable with the exercises and just cut my calories, and once I’d got to grips with that, I adjusted my diet to make sure I was hitting my macros. Once I’d done that, I started to see progress almost immediately. I’ve lost 8kg (17lbs) so far, and although I’ve only been on a cut I’m making gains in strength in the gym and I’m beginning to see some muscle definition. My body fat is now below 20% and I’m delighted with the changes I am seeing in my body.

What do you like most about the program?

It’s achievable, realistic and easy to follow. You always know what training you should be doing and what you should be eating, which makes it much easier to motivate yourself to work hard, because you know that your efforts are going to pay off. And if you aren’t sure, the Muscle for Life website is a mine of useful information. If you’re still stuck, Mike is only an email away with inspiration, motivation and support.

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

Nothing. I’d been going to a gym for about a month, but didn’t know what I was doing and knew I needed help. I went online and came across TLS (Thinner Leaner Stronger). I liked both what Mike was saying and his style of writing and knew he was someone I could get on board with.

What are three other benefits of the program?

I’ve been really surprised by how much my energy levels have improved. I don’t get tired the way I used to which makes coping with the demands of everyday life that much easier. My self confidence has improved. Not just because I think I look better, but because I’m achieving way above my expectations and it has made me realize that I can achieve in other areas too if I put my mind to it. TLS is a way of life and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Absolutely. I feel great, I look better than I have in years, I’ve loads of energy and I’m much happier in myself. It doesn’t take up too much time so it’s been easy to fit into my life.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

TLS delivers on its promises.

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.
