Unlock Your Best Body

In order to unlock your BEST body, you must first be handed the combination. Much like opening any padlock, if you don’t enter the exact numbers in the correct order, you will never open that lock and you will become instantly frustrated and dejected.

Unlocking your ‘ideal physique’ works much the same way. It’s not as simple as just eating better and exercising more. Sure, those two criteria are major components to attaining a better body but there’s more to it, let me explain.

I’ve taught people how to improve their bodies in gyms all over the world. From Australia to London to Canada to the United States and more, I’ve been in a LOT of gyms.

And while each country I’ve been to has its own very unique gym-culture, there is one awful theme that runs worldwide: people do not know how to work the muscles they are trying to use while they’re exercising!

This may not seem like much of an issue as long as they are sweaty and out of breath, right?

WRONG!

These people are not unlocking their fat-burning potential from their exercise routine! It only appears that way.

If you aren’t activating the correct muscles, then you aren’t building the body that you want, PERIOD. And unfortunately, most people tirelessly working out to reduce body fat and build muscle are making the same mistakes over and over again.

And these mistakes lead to frustration, defeat and eventually a world filled with obesity and disease like the one we live in today. Even with all of the amazing breakthroughs in science and technology in the 21st century, we have a culture that continues to get fatter and unhealthier.

Let me share something with you missed by these discouraged individuals busting their butts for results and coming up short every time. This is actually a ‘relationship’ problem and this relationship takes place INSIDE your body.

Like a faulty wire, there isn’t a strong connection between the brain and the intended working muscle(s). This weak relationship is preventing the body from optimal fat loss results. The good news is that this mind-muscle connection can be repaired and made strong again in all people. You see, your body is in a constant state of fluctuating between lipolysis (fattyacid release from adipose (fat) cells) and lipogenesis (fatty acid storage inside your fat cells).

Research has shown that increasing blood flow to the muscles in the nearby locale of stubborn body fat can actually increase lipolysis, which means that it helps you release that body fat into your bloodstream to be burned. [1] 

The problem is that 9 times out of 10, people are NOT properly activating the muscles that they are attempting to train! This means that they are NOT increasing blood flow, lipolysis, and fat burning, and they are NOT reducing the fat on their most troubled areas.

Your brain controls the degree of activation that your muscles receive by sending impulses through your nerves and directly into the muscles. Sometimes your muscles can be hampered with decreased activation potential.

There are many reasons for this, but I’ve NEVER seen anyone who could activate all of their muscles properly and in the correct sequence right from the start.

Why is this? Isn’t the human body designed to function optimally? Well, yes, it is, but we have ruined that in favor of modern conveniences. You see, while computers and televisions and driving has all made our modern life much easier, it has destroyed our ability to do physical work.

Just as an example, if you sit in a chair for longer than 20 minutes, your gluteus maximus muscles will NOT be able to activate to their full potential. This means that if you attempted to do a glute-shaping workout, you would not train the muscles properly and you would not bring localized blood flow to increase the fatty acid release from the fat cells around your hips and thighs.

So, what is the solution?

The Fat Loss Activation Program!

This program consists of brief, intense workouts that you can do from home, with just an adjustable bench and some dumbbells. Yes, that’s it!

Each session is around 15 minutes long and consists of training for 1-2 body parts per session.

You’ll start with a Fat Loss Activation (FLA) exercise that’s designed to turn on the muscles that you want to shape with the main portion of the workout.

And that’s just the beginning of this amazing transformation you’re about to have so let me tell you more about how these FLA exercises work right here.

I’ve got your back,
