What has happened so far on the program?

I’ve lost 12 pounds, dropped a full dress size, and my body fat decrease of 7.1%. I feel so much more confident, my strength is increasing every week. On Bench Press I could only just do a set with a 20 pound bar now I Bench Press the bar plus 15 pounds on each side!

Deadlifts, I have doubled my weight from 20 pounds each side plus a 20 pounds bar to 45 pounds each side. My technique is strong now so I feel confident in what I am doing and know that my gains are due to good muscle growth and strength and not improper exercise.

Before, I couldn’t even do a full press up, now I can manage a set of 8 which I am really proud of!

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

I read some of Mike’s other short books first on Kindle which were free to try to see if I like his style and could read them easily before purchasing Thinner Leaner Stronger.

I have always gone to the gym for 3/4 times a week for 4 years and tried personal trainers and different classes such as all over body workouts and body pump but was really frustrated I wasn’t seeing any improvement or difference.

What do you like most about the program?

I like that it varies every day so that each muscle group gets a rest and therefore it’s not overly repetitive. This also means I can be flexible when I go to the gym and when the equipment is in use, for example we only have one squat rack so if I get there and it’s free I just do my legs day exercises.

I also love that the routines are short and effective, I don’t have to spend hours every single day in my gym, it’s just 40 minutes on my way home from work!

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

This program is really easy to follow, much less time consuming than others and also really works. I ensured I didn’t cheat so that I wouldn’t have any excuses if results didn’t happen and I was astounded by how quickly my body changed and strengthened.

The hardest part for me was increasing my protein intake, I’ve now started snacking on packs of high protein low fat turkey breast at my desk at work instead of my old biscuits and tea!

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

I feel much more confident, I’ve dropped a dress size and my clothes fit me better. I have more energy and feel much more positive. All my colleagues at work comment as well as my fiancé. I’ve even had a few people at the gym comment on my transformation and they wanna know the secret too!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I found it rather intimidating my first few times at the gym as a woman going to the weight section where all the men are, but now I’m confident there and the blokes don’t even notice. I’d encourage women not to be put off by all the men there and just to go for it! We have as much right to be there as they do.

I think I was very naive and followed the misconception that using weights to train meant that I would bulk up, but as a woman I’d have to take a lot of testosterone supplements for that to happen!

Also, you can enjoy an evening out with your friends and have a drink and a dessert, just be careful and compensate for it with what you eat during the day which I really enjoyed! I’d recommend taking pictures every couple of weeks and using the charts to record your weight lifting progress, it really encouraged me and kept me motivated to see my progress!

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.
