Dear prospective student,
Every day, THOUSANDS of people try to get in shape....and FAIL.
Don't be one of them.
Over the past four years, I've built my online training service, WorkoutBOX, into one of the top 5 online fitness services in the world (as ranked by toptenreviews.com in both 2011 and 2012).
Over that time period, we've become aware that most people FAIL in fitness because they jump in without first building the proper foundation.
Trying to make a drastic lifestyle change without building a foundation and easing your way in is NOT a sustainable approach. It's like trying to quit smoking cold turkey - it can be done, but it's not easy and most people simply can't do it.
We originally created this course for our members, but now we're bringing it here to Udemy absolutely FREE.
In this course, you'll learn:
There's no catch - it's 100% free. I've helped - literally - millions of others get in shape, and now I'm
Stop the frustration. Start making progress towards your goals and learn how to burn fat for good!
I'll see you inside...

|Section 1: The Beginning|
Every day, tens of thousands of people try to get in shape...and fail.
Why do you think this is the case? Most of the time it’s because dive in and start doing what they see successful people doing. However, the reality is the people who SUCCESSFULLY get in shape started in an altogether different way…
This course is about starting your fitness journey off right - every day for the next 14 days.
That said, this course originally aired on WorkoutBOX.com, so forgive me if I reference the site here and there as if you're viewing it on that site.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Did you complete your homework assignment from Day 1? If not, do that now.
Okay, onto Day 2: Reasons Why Your Body Adapts (or Doesn’t)
Scientists estimate that modern humans have been around for about 200,000 years, and we’ve evolved from more primitive beings before that. However, modern society has only been around for a few hundred years.
To understand why your body adapts to exercise, you need to first realize what exercise USED to be for when we were cavemen.

Have you done your homework and taken your measurements AND your Before photo? If not, do that before moving any further.
(And remember – there’s a REALLY cool new Goal Tracking feature on WorkoutBOX, so if you’re a member, enter all your goals and your Before photo there.)
Now that you’ve taken care of that – let’s move onto Day 3!
One of the most common goals in fitness is ditching all the excess belly fat and revealing a midsection you can be proud of. SO many ab workouts, products and pills are out there – but NONE of them adhere to the one fundamental rule to reveal your abs.
So what is that all-powerful rule that can get you the abs you want? Watch today’s video to find out!

|Section 2: Nutrition|
Did you do your homework from yesterday? Do I even need to ASK you anymore?? I sure hope not...
If you have, you’re ready for Day 4, which is all about one thing: NUTRITION.
Nutrition is a buzz word for a lot of people because it makes them think of bland, tasteless food or expensive organic food – or even foods that they can’t stand. Well here’s the truth:
I LOVE FOOD.
There, I said it. I absolutely love eating. However, I can tell you with absolute certainty that my diet is healthier than 99% of the rest of the population, and it’s SO EASY for me to stick to because I follow a few simple rules.
What are those rules? Find out in today’s video!!
At this point, I'm going to assume your homework is done from yesterday. It IS done...right?
Good. Day 5 is all about what you should be eating. EVERYBODY wants to know what they should be eating, but here’s what you NEED to know.
What you should be eating is a lot more flexible than you think – and it can depend a LOT on where you are in your fat loss journey already. The million dollar question though is this:
What are the foods you’re eating MADE OF? What do each of those things DO for you??
Those answers and more are included in today’s video.
Your homework is done (right?) and you're ready to rock on the next step in the process.
It’s great to know what to eat – but here’s what most people DON’T know:
Eating too MUCH keeps you fat and makes you hate life
Eating too LITTLE keeps you fat, keeps you hungry, and makes you hate life
It may not seem like it, but these are both true (for different reasons). They won’t make sense to you yet, but they will in a moment.
However, what you ALSO need to know is
Eating the right amount makes you lose weight, keep it off, feel full and love life.
I’ll share why #1 and #2 are true and how to make #3 work for you in today’s video.
As I said yesterday, now that you know the WHAT, the WHY and the HOW MUCH, it's time to talk about WHEN to eat.
Surprisingly, this can actually be one of the bigger sticking points of most people trying to lose body fat. Without changing anything else, changing WHEN you eat can make a serious impact on your results.
How does this happen? It all comes down to your METABOLISM.
This may sound confusing, but today’s video should clarify things.
No matter WHO you are, you WILL cheat on your diet.
I don’t care if you’re a pro bodybuilder, a fitness model, a Hollywood action star or the most motivated person on the planet. The human mind has its limitations, and you’ll hit yours sooner or later.
That said, CHEATING doesn’t mean you have to full-on fall off the wagon!! You can cheat ON PURPOSE fairly regularly and still keep losing fat IF you follow a very basic set of rules.
What are those rules? That’s the topic of today’s video!
|Section 3: Exercise|
We've gone through some critical aspects of nutrition, but we haven't touched on exercise too much yet. That's about to change!
Okay, so the burning questions from yesterday were…
How do two people doing the EXACT SAME workout get DIFFERENT results?
How can YOU be the one who gets the GREAT results and not the person who gets NO results??
I give you both of these answers and more in today’s video.
Thanks to yesterday's video, you now know that two of the most effective traits of a good workout program are:
1.Beginning with the end in mind
2.Consistent, strategic efforts repeated over time
However, there are some more factors that weigh into a successful fitness program that I’ll share with you today.
But first, I want to tell you how two simple words nearly erased all the productive, solid progress that high-level fitness pros had made in the last 20 years:
…Not mentioning any names (*cough* P90X *cough*)
Get the cold hard truth on that “program” and more in today’s video.
As promised, today I'm going to tell you:
1.What the most effective exercises are
2.Why they work so well
The answers may surprise you…
Get these and more in today’s video.
Today we'll tackle the age-old question:
Should you work out at the GYM, or at HOME?
Before you make your decision (and there are pros and cons of each) you need to watch today’s video.
I hear it all the time.
I hurt my shoulder (or finger, or ankle, knee, tongue, toe nail, etc.) so I stopped workout out this week to rest it.
How do you think I feel about this? Probably pretty obvious, right?
That said, there are a LOT of interesting things to keep in mind when training with, around or through an injury.
To get a quick rundown and how these apply to you – either now or in the future – watch this video.
For your 14th and final lesson, I'll be teaching you something pretty cool.
I’ll be telling you how SLEEP can actually be your best friend in fitness. Yeah, you read that right.
What if I told you that sleep was actually JUST as important as both exercise and nutrition?
What if I THEN told you that your workouts are rendered USELESS without it?
What if I ALSO told you that you can actually BURN FAT WHILE YOU SLEEP if you follow these simple guidelines?
You may be skeptical, but before you form any opinions, watch today’s video.

You've got the info. You've got clear direction on next steps.
Now let's wrap everything up, shall we?
|Quiz 1||12 questions|
How well did you absorb the info I provided you with? Let's find out.
