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

These picture represent 12 weeks progress.

I weighed 125 pounds when I started and now I weigh 113 pounds.

I also lost an inch off both of my thighs, my waist, and my hips.

What has happened so far on the program?

I cut for 9 weeks and lost 10 pounds. I then reverse dieted and lost another 2 pounds. I’m currently increasing my calories even more to enter into a bulk, but my weight has not increased.

Throughout my time on Thinner Leaner Stronger, my strength has increased significantly and it continues to every week!

What workout split from the book did you use?

I started with the 5 day split and included three, 30 minute sessions of HIIT (sometimes I did four since I love cardio so much)!

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

I’m a personal trainer so I’ve never followed anyone else’s plans or programs. However, my brother started the Bigger Leaner Stronger program and began sending me picture of his meals, his macros, and messages telling me about his great strength and fat loss progress on the program.

When I saw him on our family holiday, I was so impressed by how good he looked that I decided to pick up Thinner Leaner Stronger!

What do you like most about the program?

It’s so easy! The results are surprisingly quick, I’m never hungry, and I’m so much stronger!

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

I’ve never really tried any other programs since I’ve always done my own programming.

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

It has changed the way I train and I no longer do hours of cardio, which has been great!

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I’d recommend it to everyone, because it simply works!

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I highly recommend you try out Thinner Leaner Stronger, you’ll be amazed by what kind of results you can achieve!

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I haven’t, although I would try them if they were more widely available in the UK!

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.
