What has happened so far on the program?

My starting weight on the program was 61 kgs, and I’m now at 55 kgs so I lost 6 kgs (13 lbs) over the entire period. And gained a lot of strength (even muscle-mass!).

For example I went from squatting 35 kgs to 60 kgs, deadlifting 35 kgs to 65 kgs and bench pressing from 20 kgs to 40 kgs over the span of the 3 months. And that was on a cutting-diet!

I’ve never felt as strong as I do today, a hip-injury I had for 2 years has even disappeared after the heavy squatting! I’m just absolutely thrilled!

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

I was apprehensive because I know a lot of misinformation about training is being spread in books, magazines and essentially all media by self-proclaimed “experts” (who are really people looking to monetize a niche-idea they have rather than actually educating the readers).

But Thinner Leaner Stronger won me over when I saw the very non-bullshit approach in the book, and that Michael Matthews cites numerous scientific studies whenever he makes a claim.

What do you like most about the program?

Honestly I like everything about it!

I love that you are absolutely guaranteed results if you follow the program/diet. Nothing is left to chance, and you’re never wasting your time. I also really appreciated how short and efficient the workouts were, I always finish in around an hour.

A very surprising aspect for me was how quick the transformation of my body was. When I saw myself in the mirror during the second month I couldn’t shake the feeling that it wasn’t my body because I had never looked like that in my life!

I never thought my behind could get so bouncy, that I would ever be able to carry 4 full bags of groceries home without getting tired, or do several proper pull-ups. I just feel so strong!

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

I never tried other programs/dieted, but I can say that even when I danced intensely for 6 months (5 times a week) my body never came close to looking like it does now or being as strong!

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

I feel free and strong in everything I do. I can really sense how happy my body is, and it shows in every area of my life. I never have any pains in my body and I can run to the bus in the mornings and feel like I’m bouncing because my legs are so strong! I can even do athletic dares with my brothers and have a good chance of beating them 😀

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

To anyone who has butt-related concerns, I just want to underline that I never, ever (really ever) thought my butt would look like this. I feel fantastically strong in my legs and I can do things today I could never do a couple of months ago.

I still can’t grasp that all I needed to get here was three months of heavy weight-lifting/cutting! So I just want to recommend TLS to anyone who has butts/leg-concerns!

Also I’d like to mention how helpful Michael himself has been as he answers all the emails he gets! Around two months into the program, I contacted him on his website because I was happy with the size of my arms at that point, and had questions on how to advance from there. He was extremely helpful and suggested that I would replace the arm-day for an extra leg-day, and so I did and it worked wonderfully!

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.
