Description

Does this describe you?

  • You have a naturally skinny body
  • You have a hard time gaining muscle or fat
  • You have a fast metabolism
  • You have a small appetite and may even be underweight
  • You're tired of people commenting on your skinny body
  • You're confused about all the muscle building information online
  • You're desperate to have that athletic body that you dream of

If you answered yes to most of these points, then you are an Ectomorph. In this course we'll learn about the Ectomorph body type, the specific dietary and exercise requirements for building muscle, and how to LOVE being an Ectomorph! No kitchen scale or calorie counting required!

As a skinny Ectomorph, I've spent years trying to understand this topic. I've done TONS of personal experiments and have learned a lot along the way. Not to mention, I've gained close to 30 pounds of muscle!

I wanted to create a course with as much information as I could possibly squeeze in. I've also designed it to be compatible with anyone. Whether you're an experienced lifter with access to any equipment, or a total beginner without any equipment at all, this course will work for all of you!

Who is the target audience?
  • ECTOMORPHS: Naturally skinny people who can't seem to gain muscle mass

Filmmaker & Health Coach

My name is Eric and I'm just an ordinary guy trying to optimize my life through nutrition, fitness, routines, goals and new experiences. I've been a passionate filmmaker for most of my life, always looking for a new project. I'm also dedicated to health and fitness, and always try to stay up to date on the latest science. Not only for my future clients and students, but for my own personal health as well.

For most of my life I was underweight, I had no confidence, and I felt very unhealthy. At 6 feet tall, I weighed only 130lbs. I became determined to understand how I could possibly gain some muscle and feel confident in my body.

Fast forward to today, I weigh almost 160lbs and I feel strong and healthy. I've discovered what it takes to successfully gain weight as an Ectomorph (skinny guy), and I believe it's my mission to teach others how to do the same.
