Stefanie's Progress

Progress Image Before
Progress Image 12 Months

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

I followed the Thinner Leaner Stronger program and the pictures are 12 months apart.

My body fat went from 40% to 20%. My weight went from 192 to 136. Deadlift got up to 190 for 10 reps and squats 175 for 10 reps.

What has happened so far on the program?

I cut for the entire 12 months. My weight from 192 to 136. I got much stronger as the year went on. At the end, I was squatting 175 for 10 reps and deadlifting 190 for 10 reps. I used the catch McArdle calculation found in Thinner Leaner Stronger and made sure my macros were on target every day with the occasional cheat meal.

What workout split from the book did you use?

The 5-day split with occasionally using a three or four-day split to accommodate vacations.

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

I honestly didn’t think that I could accomplish it. I’ve had personal trainers in the past but just never made much progress. I would lose 20 lbs and gain it right back. What I loved about this was the structure and research behind it.

What do you like most about the program?

I really liked the fact that the program was very structured and very specific. The research that was in the book was fantastic. My progress was much faster than I thought it would be. Like I said, I didn’t think I could do it at all!

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

This program was by far the best I’ve ever used! It gave me the right volume of exercises and gave me specific ways to get my macros right.

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

So many aspects of my life have changed because of getting fit. I have more confidence, great clothes are easier to find, I have more energy, and my marriage is better.

Honestly, the most important thing is that I know have the ability to try to inspire other people to do the same. I’ve told so many people that if I can do it they can, too! It is never too late to surprise yourself . Food used to be my addiction, now it is finding new challenges and ways to surprise myself about what I am capable of.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

I would recommend this program to anyone and everyone! If you are truly ready to do it one day at a time and one meal at a time, Thinner Leaner Stronger won’t fail you.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

I have a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology which helps me to understand that you have to decide in your mind first that you want to do this and then your body will follow that.

There is so much emotion and faulty thinking that needs to be overcome. Once you beat that, following Thinner Leaner Stronger and meeting your goals is a breeze.

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.
