What has happened so far on the program?

I started at 155 pounds, and 6 months later I’m 132 with amazing muscle! I’m a beast. After I lost 23 pounds I feel like a solid human made of meat, not fat.

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

I just needed to refresh my memory on the calorie rules and muscle group routines.

This book was a great guide for teaching me about calorie manipulation and how to control weight loss while building muscle. It’s incredibly flexible.

What do you like most about the program?

Simplicity! People tend to over complicate fitness.

With Thinner Leaner Stronger you take 45 minutes to knock out your workout and get on with your day.

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

The points on diet were very helpful. Tracking carbs, protein, and fat was new for me but by far the most efficient.

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

Waking up is more fun than dreaming these days. Every aspect of my life has improved.

Most surprisingly are my relationships to my friends and family. I’m better for them when I started being better to myself.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Stay consistent. Your body is a machine and needs to be fed and worked. It’s science so it will work. You just have to be patient with the process of progress.

Take a picture in the beginning and remember why you started.

Don’t let anyone or anything get in the way of you archiving your goals.

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 profit so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we don't exactly hate profit, but we 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.
