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

July 2016 to November 2016

Weight: 53 kg to 47 kg

Body fat: 25% to 19%

What has happened so far on the program?

I used Mike’s body fat calculator and his macro calculator to work out my macros. I cut them by 15% and followed his eating recommendations and created meal plans to hit my carbs, protein, and fats.

I found I was eating no where near enough protein before! Through his recommendations I learned how to balance my meals properly. I am still cutting my calories — but only by 10% because I want to continue building lean muscle.

I have lost 6 kg and 6% body fat and for the first time I can actually see the definition in my overall body tone. My strength has really improved due to these lifts! I rock climb as a sport and I’ve noticed my progress there the most since I have started lifting.

What workout split from the book did you use?

I used the 3-day split workout. It worked for me.

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

I’ve tried so many other forms of exercise from les mils workouts to running.

I have felt healthy, but it wasn’t enough. I wanted to change my nutritional habits because I knew I wasn’t eating properly.

What do you like most about the program?

I like everything about this program. It is easy to fit into my lifestyle.

The nutrition just takes a bit of prep for the week, but I actually enjoy doing this. I do HIIT workouts 5 times a week and weights 3 times a week. They are both very different and I like the fact that the HIIT’s are no longer than 25 mins.

I like the fact that the combination of the lifting, HIIT, nutrition, and mindset actually WORKS! I have so much more energy now and I feel so much more positive in my outlook. The results came a lot faster than I thought — I saw a difference within 3 weeks.

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

I eat so much more than I did before! I couldn’t believe it!

To start with, the weight dropped off — yet I was eating more! This spurred me on and its now become a lifestyle rather than an exercise fad. I love everything I eat and can still treat myself when I want to.

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

I am happier about myself because my energy levels are so much better, and when I get tired, it’s a proper tiredness rather than a sugar low.

I am much more confident and I get compliments about my fitness level which makes me smile.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

This program is for everyone — regardless of your situation or age. It’s so accessible and easy to do — and above all — enjoyable to do.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Just try it. It honestly works. You will see results fast if you do the nutrition alongside the exercise, and you will feel so much better about yourself.

Did you use any Legion supplements?

I live in the UK and was gutted when I saw the shipping cost on the LEGION website. I sent out an email and I was put onto a British website called “Shift Supplements.”

I now use RECHARGE, FORTIFY, and WHEY+. They are all fantastic and are really suited to my needs. They are not full of crap, are high quality, and do what they say on the bottle!

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.
