What has happened so far on the program?

Huge progress, week after week. The more I clearly could see my progress, the more motivated I was. I went from 74kg to 68kg in 3 months.

What do you like most about the program?

When I wanted and DECIDED to lose body fat, first thing I noticed is that I had no knowledge about it. What was wrong and what was right? So, I bought the book (in Portuguese) (Bigger Better Stronger) and one of the main things I realized is that I had to focus on a balance of carbs, proteins and fats and control of calories. So the knowledge is there. The book gave me a direction to it. Now, what exactly is my balance of carbs, proteins and fats in order to get better results and strictly to my needs? That answer was given by the Meal Plan. I cannot forget to mention that the book also gave me the right directions to workout even better. Six reps are amazing.

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

Nothing. I thought very motivating buying the book and I was encouraged to start the program.

What are three other benefits of the program?

I was previously asked what foods I’m familiar with. (My likes and dislikes).

Was respected my schedules of training and eating.

I was encouraged to read the blog and that keeps me informed and motivated

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

Absolutely, the knowledge and the ”way to it“ is there. But you have to WANT IT and DECIDE to do it.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Don’t waste time guessing how you can improve yourself. Get advice from someone who knows what they are talking about, and has achieved the results you want to achieve. Once you get that advice, follow it. Soon other people will be asking you for advice.

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.
