“I liked the way the coaching program broke the complex down to simple, actionable advice. Mark’s approach makes you realize what’s attainable with a bit of planning and commitment. I lost 25 lbs pretty quickly. I feel confident that I will sustain and continue to lose weight.”

This has indeed been a lifestyle change ...

“I just finished my third workout of week 12. My 36th consecutive workout without a single miss. I started with 10lb weights and ended up squatting with 80lbs, swinging 60lbs and pressing 50lbs. In week one I did six pushups, today I completed 30, and I could have done more. I’m feeling fitter and stronger and am so glad I found your program when I did. Starting next week I am going to repeat the entire workout, just upping the weight and adding more reps. I’ll probably add in some sprints as well. I have lost around 30lbs and my waist has shrunk by six inches. I still have a little way to go with that, but I know what to do. I’m eating good food and adding good fat to everything. It’s a rare day when I consume more than 35 carbs. Your availability and input has been invaluable throughout this process. Knowing I can shoot off a question and get a reply the same day has been extremely helpful. I wasn’t able to make it to many of the webinars, but if I had extra questions, it helped to hear you talk and explain the answers.

Mark Gelfand

“Followed your Old Spartan advice and lost 30 lbs. Got back 32 inch waist and can run an 8 minute mile no sweat. Basically cannot believe what I see in the mirror. All pretty simple: run sprints, resistance training and cut the carbs. I look and perform better at 55 than at 40. Cheers, keep it up.”

Jeff Hogue

“The coaching program helped me understand my eating habits and the changes required to meet my nutritional needs to get healthy and not just go on a diet. I lost 16 pounds during the program and 4 inches off my waist alone. The amazing thing was I did this during the Holiday season. I’m confident I can maintain my weight loss and look forward to continuing to not only lose weight but get healthy.”

I haven’t done this in 20 years ...

John Oppelt

Mark, Really appreciate your following up. When we started this program, I set some goals that would have been great to achieve over time. I was cautiously optimistic. Gratefully, I am proud to say that I can wear 33” waist pants. I haven’t done this in 20 years. I still have some weight to drop but, I’m getting closer every week. You’ve truly been instrumental in helping me change my life. I’m eternally grateful. With much gratitude for all your guidance.

Lost 30 pounds, down to 22% body fat, GOT OFF INSULIN ...

Joe Galivan

"You got me started on this journey almost a year ago. Something you said a year ago really sunk in with me about seeing guys in the gym on the treadmill and getting nowhere. I was killing myself with 30 minute sessions twice per day on the treadmill and getting NOWHERE! I have lost 30 pounds, down to 22% body fat, GOT OFF INSULIN, designed and built my own squat rack with bumper weights and have steadily increased my squat, dead lift, bench, and chins. But by far my most favorite exercise is the farmers carry, by your suggestion. Even built handles to carry +70 lbs worth of cement blocks in each hands."
