Here's What to Do When You've Tried Everything and Nothing Has Worked to Give You the Body You Really Want

If you finally want to get into the best shape of your life without spending hours slaving away in the gym every day doing workouts you hate . . .

. . . without starving yourself, crash dieting, or kissing all the foods you like goodbye . . .

. . . and without wasting another dollar on worthless supplements . . .

. . . then this might be the most important letter you'll read all year.

From: Mike Matthews

Dear Friend,

You probably know me already if you’re reading this.

I’m the author of several bestselling health and fitness books including Bigger Leaner Stronger and Thinner Leaner Stronger, as well as the founder of Legion, and here’s the deal:

No matter how genetically “cursed” you might think you are, and no matter how lost you might feel after trying and abandoning many types of workout and diet routines, you absolutely, positively can have the lean, strong, and healthy body of your dreams.

The truth is getting into awesome shape isn’t nearly as difficult as the fitness industry wants you to believe.

Here’s what I mean...

  • You don't need to: Obsess over "clean eating" and avoiding "bad" or “unhealthy” foods like sugar, meat, and bread. Some foods are just more nutritious than and should be eaten more frequently than others. That's it.
  • You don't need to: Constantly change up your fitness routine. A little of the right variability in your exercise is productive, but more than that is obstructive.
  • You don't need to: Spend a couple of hours in the gym every day grinding through punishing strength training workouts. Sweating buckets, getting really sore, training until bone-tired . . . all wholly overrated for gaining lean muscle and strength.
  • You don't need to: Slog away on the treadmill. In fact, you don't need to do any cardio exercise at all to shed ugly belly fat and even get six-pack abs.
  • You don't need to: Waste coin on sketchy bodybuilding supplements like fat burners, hormone boosters, and amino acids. Most of these products either haven't been scientifically proven to do what you’re paying for or have been proven outright ineffective.

Those are just a few of the many myths that keep people from losing fat, gaining muscle, and getting into the best shape of their lives.

And while I could tout the 2 million books I’ve sold over the last decade or tens of millions of podcast plays and website visits I’ve received, that’s not why you should listen to me.

You should listen to me because after examining much of the important scientific literature, trying scores of workout programs, diets, and supplements, and working with thousands of people, I don’t know everything, but I do know what works and what doesn’t.

Like most people, I was clueless when I started lifting weights nearly twenty years ago. I picked up some bodybuilding magazines and started working out a couple of hours per day and spending hundreds of dollars on supplements per month.

I carried on that way for over seven years, jumping from diet to diet, workout program to workout program, and supplement to supplement. Here’s what that looked like:

Mike Matthews after nearly 7 years

Despite my considerable efforts, I had only gained about twenty-five pounds of muscle and novice-level strength, and I still didn’t know how to get and stay lean or break through my training plateaus and build the body I really wanted.

As you can imagine, I was a little less than thrilled, and I figured I probably just didn’t have the genetics to get ripped or strong. I was wrong. I was just making some of the worst (and most common) fitness mistakes out there, including . . .

  • I didn’t know how to diet correctly. For instance, I thought some calories “mattered” more than others, carbs made me fatter, and what I ate was far more important than how much I ate of it.
  • I cared a lot more about getting a “pump” than achieving progressive overload. In fact, I didn’t even know what progressive overload was, how it drives muscle growth, and how to work toward it in every workout.
  • I agonized far too much over which “workout split” I should follow. A workout split doesn't drive muscle growth. Your biceps don’t care if you do an “arms,” “pull,” or “upper-body” workout. Your muscles will grow when you do the right amount of the right exercises with the right amount of weight.
  • I changed up my workout routine way too much. A little of the right variability in your exercise is productive, but more than that is obstructive.
  • I wasted thousands every year on worthless supplements. Supplements are supplemental by definition and don’t build great physiques—only proper diet and training does.

I finally decided to get “serious” about my fitness and learn the true physiology of muscle growth and fat loss. I tossed the magazines out, ditched the Internet forums, and stopped paying attention to locker room chatter, and started studying the work of leading strength and bodybuilding coaches, consulting veteran natural bodybuilders, and reviewing scientific research.

When I finally escaped all of the misinformation and changed what I was doing in the kitchen and gym according to what I was learning, the results were almost too good to believe. I started gaining muscle again. I started gaining strength again. I got a six-pack for the first time. I was getting jacked by spending less time in the gym, doing less cardio, and eating more freely. It felt like I had found the cheat codes to the fitness game.

Here’s what I mean:

Mike Matthews

That became my “summer look” of about 7% body fat (featuring my adorable son Lenox), and now, years later, I still stay within striking distance of “photoshoot lean”:

Mike Matthews

So, here’s the bottom line:

I know what it’s like to be stuck in a rut . . . to have no idea whether you’re eating or training effectively . . . to feel like it’s no use trying to get any fitter, leaner, or stronger.

That said, coaches and trainers like me seem to be a dime a dozen, so if you’re skeptical, you should be . . .

How Much Can You Really Trust Personal Trainers and Nutritionists?

This might sound arrogant, but after speaking and working with thousands of people over the years, I’m thoroughly convinced of the following:

Although most personal trainers and nutritionists have their hearts in the right place, many don’t know what the hell they’re doing.

Low-carb starvation dieting is rampant. Strength training workouts are either way too hard or way too easy. "Clean eating" is worshiped while energy and macronutrient balance are completely ignored. Hours of cardio every week is mandatory.

The problems go on and on.

You can spot these bad trainers and coaches pretty easily, too: while they themselves may look great (although they often don’t), their clients look exactly the same month after month.

How can this be? Aren’t these people certified professionals? The truth is it doesn’t take much to get your personal trainer or nutritionist certifications.

In most cases, you do a CPR class and some online studying, which teaches you just about nothing of practical value. Then you take a couple tests that are basically impossible to fail and can now hang your shingle up as a “professional” without ever having to prove you can actually get results in others.

Another major problem with how many trainers and nutritionists operate boils down to an underlying conflict of interests: your and their goals are often very different.

You want a trainer to teach you how to get and stay fit but they want to keep you as a client for as long as possible, and if they really gave you what you wanted (the key what’s, how’s, and why’s of fitness), they couldn’t get what they want.

Now, my point here isn’t that I’m so righteous and clever and everyone else is criminal scum. My point is I like to do things differently.

Every week I get scores of emails and social media messages from people eager to work with me on a one-on-one basis, regardless of the cost. And as fun as it sounds to take on a bunch of coaching clients and just make diet and training plans and chat with cool people on Skype all day, there’s just no way I can do it.

Between researching, writing, podcasting, marketing, and the various CEO-related activities for Legion, I simply couldn’t give coaching clients the amount of attention and level of service I’d want if I were them.

And so here’s how I used to reply to requests for 1-on-1 coaching:

“I wish I could somehow work that into my schedule but it’s just not possible...but I’m happy to answer any questions, so fire away.”

This has allowed me to meet and help thousands of people over the years, but eventually it became clear that I was doing them a bigger disservice by not figuring something out.

I got to work on a solution, and here’s the result . . .

You Work With My Hand-Picked Team of Coaches and Get the Body You Really Want

While I couldn’t personally work with everyone who wants 1-on-1 help, I could build and oversee a team of evidence-based, tried-and-tested coaches who can work with my readers and followers who want help.

And that’s exactly what I did 7 years ago, and since then, my team and I have helped over 3,000 men and women of all ages and abilities build muscle, lose fat, and get healthy, and faster than they ever thought possible.

For example . . .

In 12 months, Casey completely transformed his physique. After a bulk and a cut, Casey cut his body fat down to 9%, slashed 4 inches off his waist, and cumulatively added almost 100 lbs to his main lifts.

Casey C. (44 years old)

In 90 days, Sarah lost a cool 21 pounds and 6.5 inches off her waist.

Sarah P. (45 years old)

In just 90 days, Andy cut 11 lb of body fat, over 4 inches from his waist, and cumulatively gained over 50 lb on his key lifts.

Andy B. (51 years old)

In 12 weeks, Jen slashed 4 inches from her waist, added 30 lb to her squat, and cut almost 15 lb of body fat, all while eating the foods she loved and “rarely feeling hungry.”.

Jen F. (36 years old)

In 12 weeks, Devin cut 14 lb, 5% body fat, and over 3 inches from his waist and cumulatively gained over 50 lb on his main lifts. The coaching program “exceeded expectations.”.

Devin P. (35 years old)

In 9 months, Brandy lost nearly 40 lb—going from 178 lb down to 140 lb—while gaining 10 to 20 lb on her main lifts. In her words, she “learned how to eat and workout properly, understanding how to lift and what to eat after going my whole life trying to figure it out.”

Brandy D. (39 years old)

Nick lost 18 pounds and 7% body fat and went from fit to absolutely ripped in just 90 days. In his words, “I am more confident with my physique. I feel healthy and more energetic!"

Nick C. (24 years old)

In 9 months, Katie cut a total of 38 lb and 5.5 inches from her waist and gained 115 lb cumulatively on her squat, bench press, and deadlift.

Katie M. (57 years old)

In just 90 days, Carey lost over 20 lb, cumulatively gained 195 lb on his main lifts, and significantly improved his blood pressure.

Carrie F. (52 years old)

Esther lost a boatload of fat, gained muscle, and dramatically increased her strength. When she started working with us, she could only deadlift the bar. Now, she can deadlift her body weight for multiple reps and enjoys all day energy and confidence.

Esther H. (30 years old)

And how exactly does this service work? Here’s exactly what you get when you sign up:

  • 1.
    Your very own expert health coach personally assigned to you, who will help you tackle YOUR biggest challenges and ensure that you keep progressing toward the body that you really want.
  • 2.
    100%, made-for-you meal plans to help you lose fat, build muscle, and actually ENJOY the process. We’ll show you exactly what to eat each and every day to reach your goals as quickly as possible.
  • 3.
    Workout plans created specifically for you, which means you’ll start seeing immediate results in the gym and the mirror.
  • 4.
    Unlimited VIP email access to your personal coach, so you can finally get your most pressing fitness questions answered.

In other words, we take you by the hand and walk you through the entire process, from calculating your calories and macros to creating your custom meal and exercise plans to making adjustments based on how your body responds and more.

And that’s why we can help you achieve more in just 90 days than most people do in years.

But wait, there’s more!

If We’ve Done Our Job Well, You’ll Fire Us in 90 Days

My team and I don’t just help people get in the best shape of their life.

Sure, we’ll figure out your calories and macros, create custom diet and training plans based on your goals and circumstances, make adjustments depending on how your body responds, and more.

We’ll also help you ingrain the right eating and exercise habits so you can develop a healthy and sustainable relationship with food and training.

But then, the kicker: once you’re thrilled with your results . . .



You’ve heard the phrase “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

That summarizes how my one-on-one coaching service works. And that’s why it doesn’t make nearly as many shiny shekels as it could.

But I’m okay with that, because my mission isn’t just to help you gain muscle and lose fat—it’s to give you the tools and knowledge you need to forge ahead in your fitness without me.

So, dig it:

When you sign up for Legion coaching, we don’t just take you by the hand and walk you through the entire process of building your best body ever.

We also teach you the all-important whys behind the hows—the key principles and tools you need to become your own coach.

And the best part?

It only takes 90 days, and it costs less than a regularly weekly session with a personal trainer at your local gym.

Rachel lost over 4% body fat and doubled her whole-body strength in only 90 days!

Rachel D.

Jesper cut down to 12% body fat and gained 40 pounds on his key lifts in only 90 days!

Jesper K.

Carla dropped over 11 pounds, 5% body fat, and 7 inches off her waist and hips in only 90 days!

Carla B. (36 years old)

Ron E. (62 years old)

Heidi dropped 27.5 pounds and 8.5 inches off her waist in 6 months!

Heidi B. (57 years old)

So, instead of continuing to go it alone, why not try something different?

This is not a high-pressure sales call, by the way. It’s a friendly chat where we get to learn where you’re at, where you’ve been, and where you want to be, and then determine whether the program is right for you.

You should also know that this program comes with a very simple money-back guarantee:

You either love the experience and are thrilled with your results, or you get every penny you’ve paid back. That’s how much confidence I have in my team’s ability to help you get to where you want to be.

So, take the first step. Schedule your call now.

We just . . . wait for it . . . give you your money back. Holy moo cows. And that means you can say "yes" now and decide later.

Clinically Effective Doses

Many ingredients in supplements don’t have any scientifically validated benefits, and many ingredients that do are often underdosed to the point of irrelevance.

That’s why we only use the choice ingredients and precise doses shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.

Clinically Effective Doses

You need more than great ingredients to make great products—you also need proper doses. That’s why we use the precise doses of ingredients shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.

100% Natural Ingredients

“Natural” doesn’t always mean “better,” but in many cases, natural ingredients are superior to artificial ones for various reasons, including purity, safety, and efficacy.

That’s why all of our ingredients in all of our products come from plant and animal sources, including sweeteners, colors, and flavors.

Made in USA

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.

Lab Tested

Did you know that supplements can contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

That’s why we test every ingredient of every supplement we produce for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants and 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.

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

Many ingredients in supplements don’t have any scientifically validated benefits. That’s why we only use choice ingredients shown to be effective in peer-reviewed scientific studies.

No Chemical Junk

“Natural” doesn’t always mean “better,” but in many cases, natural ingredients are superior to artificial ones for various reasons, including purity, safety, and efficacy.

Security Check

Please click the checkbox below. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Some popular pre-workouts are all-natural. Some contain the right mix of high-quality ingredients. Some provide clinically effective doses. But only Pulse checks each of these boxes.

Pulse doesn’t just “contain natural ingredients''—every ingredient is naturally sourced from plants and animals. Pulse contains no artificial or synthetic substances of any kind.

Every serving of Pulse contains 14.9 grams of active ingredients that have been shown to be safe and effective in peer-reviewed scientific research.

Every active ingredient in Pulse is backed by published scientific studies that show benefits in healthy humans.

Pulse contains no harsh stimulants that wind you up and burn you out. Instead, it contains a 1:1 ratio of caffeine and L-theanine, which produces a smooth energy rush and comfortable comedown.

We carefully examined 508 pages of scientific research to find out exactly what should and shouldn’t be in a pre-workout drink.

Every bottle of Pulse is guaranteed to provide exactly what the label claims and nothing else—no heavy metals, microbes, allergens, or other contaminants.

While these types of chemicals may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of them may indeed be harmful to our health. And that’s why we don’t put any of them into our products.

Before you buy a sports supplement, you should know that it's clean, safe, and transparent. And that's exactly what Labdoor's third-party testing and certification means.

It's hard to know for sure, but this probably makes Pulse the most-popular all-natural pre-workout supplement in the world.

If you don’t absolutely love this product, just let us know, and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No forms or return necessary.

Analyzed for purity and potency in a state-of-the-art ISO 17025 accredited lab by Labdoor, the gold standard of third-party lab testing.
