Today, muscle is coveted.
That's because muscle is the true fountain of youth.
And fairly recently, for the first time in recorded history, women strive for the athletic, muscular look of an athlete over being "thin."
And you know what? I think this is awesome.
Not just because it shows how we are evolving, but because there are tremendous benefits to carrying more muscle mass (and less body fat).
You see, society has changed a lot in the last century.
Way back in 2011, I was interviewed on Fox Business news.
We discussed how the internet has changed the way you exercise.
You can watch the talk on this page.

Day-to-day life once involved intense physical labor, lifting heavy things and carrying them around, which is great for building and maintaining muscle.
But today, most physical activity has been engineered out of modern society.
Think automobiles, desk jobs, etc.
Just 20 years ago, if you wanted to look something up, you had to go inside a library.
Nowadays, if you want to learn more about "existentialism" you barely have to look up from your pocket-sized computer.
(Hopefully not while you're driving.)
But, because the world is more automated, it’s very easy for you to be low on muscle mass and high in body fat.
Being overweight or obese (or worse) is detrimental to your health, vitality, and mobility.
Good news is that you can lose bodyfat and "find" muscle by following a smart training plan, eating mindfully, and getting quality sleep nightly.
5 Reasons to Build More Muscle
As I see it, here are the top-five benefits of building and maintaining muscle mass.
1. Increased metabolic efficiency.
When you hold more muscle, your body needs higher amounts of energy to survive.
Muscle is 3-5 times more metabolically active at rest, which means muscle tissue burns significantly more calories at rest than fat.
2. Improved insulin sensitivity.
This means more control over blood sugar levels and lower instances of diabetes.
You’ll also have better blood-glucose control.
So, less dietary glucose (sugar) will get stored as bodyfat and you’ll have more energy overall.
3. Less sarcopenia.
This is age-related muscle loss. You begin to lose muscle tissue around the age of 30, but you can slow this natural process by hitting the weights. So, if you want to maintain your independence when you’re older and be strong versus frail, work to build muscle and keep it. In short, use it or lose it.
4. Less chance of preventable disease.
It's common knowledge that excess body fat causes a variety of serious health conditions.
One of the best ways to reduce dangerous levels of bodyfat is to build muscle.
And in doing so, you can avoid potentially deadly conditions like stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and many other preventable issues.
Are you doing all you can to avoid lifestyle-related disease?
5. More confidence.
When you have athletic levels of bodyfat and muscle, you have more confidence.
This confidence will spread across all areas of your life, as a better version of YOU emerges.
You’ll inspire those around you as you become more positive, fearless, and proud of the body you’ve created. So you might be wondering...
...what’s the best way to build and keep muscle?
First things first – you MUST lift weights.
It's simply no longer an option to NOT do progressive resistance exercise...
...following the principles of progression and overload.
Not random "workouts of the day" that encourage sloppy form and break your body.
I'm talking about training sessions that have a method to the madness... that are performed with excellent technique.
At our guaranteed-results virtual coaching program we have mastered the art and science of designing safe and effective programs that encourage you to increase muscle while decreasing dangerous bodyfat.
Especially the deadly abdominal visceral fat.
You can get results from anywhere on the planet because the coaching program is delivered 100% online using email, a private membership site, video-conference sessions, and even smoke signals.
(Okay, no smoke signals or messenger pigeons are used in getting you lean and strong.)
Other important factors include mindful nutrition that supports building muscle, sleep, hydration, stress management, and mobility work too.
I hope you see how essential it is to follow these healthy habits.
Not just for today but for the future... so you stay happy.
Much of the challenges you face when you’re older can be reduced or prevented by the choices you make now.
So, if you’re currently training in one of our programs consistently... BRAVO!
You’re giving yourself a gift every time you complete a training session, so don’t forget that.
Who can you forward this message to... someone who NEEDS to hear this?
If you’re not actively working on building or maintaining muscle, I ask you, for the sake of your future self, to schedule a call and have a chat with me.
It will change every aspect of your life... *how you feel when you look in the mirror *potentially how long you live and with what quality of life.
Don’t put it off.
You deserve your best.
