How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?

24 months.

Weight 184 to 132 (52 pounds).

Body fat from 26% to 11%.

What has happened so far on the program?

I cut for approximately a year and a half before switching to maintenance diet. I lost a total of 52 pounds and cut 15% off my total body fat percentage. I did a reverse diet, as Mike suggests, after my bikini competition in October 2016 to get myself back up to maintenance numbers.

I’ve also experienced a significant increase in my weight lifting capacity.

Bench press: 85lbs to 145lbs

Barbell squat: 105lbs to 195lbs

Deadlift: 85lbs to 185lbs

Dumbbell Military Press: 17.5lbs to 37.5lbs

I was able to compete in my first bikini competition in October 2016! I got second place!!

What workout split from the book did you use?

I use the 5-day split.

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

Nothing kept me from buying the book! I was hesitant about starting the program due to fear of not doing it correctly or not being able to stick to it.

I read the book in its entirety and outlined my workout regimen and diet as Mike suggested. I then re-read the book and noted the more significant information and started the program!

What do you like most about the program?

The program is easy to follow. It seems overwhelming at first because Mike offers so much information, but once I was able to sit down and outline everything, it was clear and concise and easy to follow.

The information provided is written in such a way that it is easy to understand and apply to daily life, too.

The results were better than I expected. I had hoped to lose some weight and get in shape, but I never expected that I’d be able to get as fit and healthy as I am today.

How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?

I haven’t tried other programs.

How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?

I can participate in any activity without fear of failure; not that I won’t struggle and that things won’t be difficult, but that I can do them and learn and grow and be challenged.

I am more confident in all aspects of my life. I have more energy and when I don’t feel like I have the energy, I know how to conjure it.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I have recommended this program to my friends and family.

I have also recommended it to several patients. Those who have listened, read the book, and applied the program have had substantial success, too.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

While on this program (even today, as I still follow it), I reminded myself daily that “every ‘no’ to temptation was one step closer to my goal.”

I also chose positive words to move toward successful choices . I choose not to have or do certain foods or activities (instead of “can’t”). My “cheat meal” I referred to as a “free meal.”

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I use Legion WHEY+ (vanilla is my favorite), TRIUMPH, FORGE, and PULSE.

Free Worldwide Shipping & Returns

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 go in for happy customers, and free shipping works like gangbusters.

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 $199.

Why the restriction on international orders? Unfortunately, shipping abroad is very expensive, and if we didn’t require a minimum order size, we’d lose a lot of money.

That said, as most international customers spend about $200 with us each time they shop, this setup is a win-win.

Clinically Effective Doses

Great ingredients aren't enough to make a great product—you also need correct doses.

That’s why we use the exact doses of every ingredient that have safely produced the desired benefits in peer-reviewed studies.

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Unlike some supplement companies, we don’t sell dubious white labeled or off-the-shelf formulations.

Instead, our custom and unique formulations are the result of extensive reviews of the scientific literature to discover the most effective ingredients for each.
