What has happened so far on the program?

I’ve been following the cutting diet mentioned in the book and I’ve been strictly following the workout plan. I have currently lost 30 pounds of body fat, while putting on lean muscle. My body has leaned out and I’m seeing muscles that I never knew were there.

What do you like most about the program?

I like the fact that I don’t have to kill myself in the gym by doing super sets. I most like the support that I get online, Mike and his team are always willing to help and answer any questions that I have.

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

I had read several other books and followed their routine, but nothing changed. I didn’t loose any weight, and I definitely did not see any progress, and I had given up. So when I saw the book “Bigger Leaner Stronger” online I was hesitant, I thought it was just another author trying to make a quick buck, but when I finished the book I had a solid foundation to start my workout plan. I followed all the suggestions, never missed a workout, and never looked back. I see progress every week.

What are three other benefits of the program?

I like all the free books and articles that are posted, because as a newbie to weightlifting I have a lot of questions. I also like the one year challenge because Mike lays out a complete workout plan for your first year of working out.

Would you recommend this program? If so, why?

People are constantly asking me how I lost so much weight while still building lean muscle. I always recommend “Bigger Leaner Stronger” to people who ask me what program I followed. I have seen a lot of changes to my body and I continue to see changes, and that is why I always recommend this program to people.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I am almost 40 and I thought that I was too old to get into shape, but I was wrong. This program has shown me no matter your age, if you have the dedication and desire you can reach any goal you set for yourself. Yes, it is hard work and I have fallen off the wagon once or twice, but I always got back on and I will continue to reach my goals. I owe a big thanks to Mike and his team for helping reach my goals.

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.
