What has happened so far on the program?

I have gotten bigger and stronger. Not only have I built muscle but I feel great. Im full of energy and I love the way my body has shaped up. My doctor is also amazed and said he’s rarely seen a Type 1 diabetic have to take such little insulin. By following the diet plan laid out in BLS (Bigger Leaner Stronger) and eating clean I’ve been able to really get a handle on my newly diagnosed disease. It actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise, and has allowed me to completely change my life and get in shape. Its allowed me to get serious about my health.

What do you like most about the program?

The simplicity of it. If you make the commitment you can completely change your life and get in the best shape you have ever been. I love the way I feel. Im full of energy and rarely ever drag through my day anymore.

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

The book came recommended by a coworker. I was hesitant to purchase the book due to my lack of commitment with exercise programs before. I didn’t really feel there would be any difference from any other time I tried a exercise and diet regimen.

What are three other benefits of the program?

1) The way you feel and your energy level.

2) Watching your body transform into something you never felt possible for yourself.

3) The confidence and self-esteem you develop by staying committed to something and bettering yourself.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

I would recommend this program and I have to several of my friends. It is so simple and completely laid out for you that it is almost impossible to do anything wrong. Any questions I have had I’ve been able to contact Mike through email and he has always responded and provided me clarity. He has been with me every step of the way and you feel like he’s really there supporting you and helping you along in your journey. I’ve never experienced anything like that.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

BLS and the help of Mike have completely changed my life for the better. I’m in the best shape of my life. I feel the best I have ever felt. By just having commitment and some perseverance you can transform your body in to the one you’ve always wanted but never known how to achieve. Every aspect of my life has changed since I began my journey with Mike and BLS. I feel amazing physically and mentally. I love what I see when I look in the mirror and see all my hard work paying off. I’ll be forever grateful to Mike for setting up such an easy to follow full program to help people change their lives.

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.
