Wow! What an Exciting Time in Fitness

BillandMaria

Wow! What an exciting day it’s been! What an exciting week it’s been on the Go LIVE workout page! What an exciting time it has been since the beginning of this group. Our workout week for wishes became 2.5 weeks and I was so happy that we got to give so many free workouts to those of you who gave so generously for our Make-A-Wish Fundraiser which was a huge success for the kids of this wonderful charity.

We ended up having more than 1 winner of our annual Transformation Fitness Challenge and that makes so much sense because so many of you have accomplished so much… you’ve all become healthier and that’s the ultimate WIN!

I am going to be on hiatus from in front of the camera workouts for the next month but Maria is doing another MP21 Challenge starting this Monday August 21, which, as I’ve explained is an excellent three week sprint that will help you fine tune your nutrition with very strict guidelines and extreme accountability. I’ve seen some of the guys and gals that have been working out with weights and building some good muscle get on Maria’s MP21 and take off 7 pounds of body fat in three weeks and really show an incredible change.

Maria’s 21 Day Challenge starts the day after tomorrow; Monday August 21 and she will be sending out guidelines and material to particpants tomorrow. If you are not signed up for Maria’s MP21 Challenge already, I’ve talked her into letting 10 more people from our GO LIVE team enroll with her while I am working on The New Body for Life book, franchise centers, Masters Camps, and other projects over the next month.

To register in MP21 you have to take action right away by clicking here. https://www.mariaphillips.com/collections/21-day-challenge/products/21-day-challenge-begins-br-august-21-2017

Thank you all for letting me be your coach this past year. I look forward to getting back in action next month after I make some important progress with The New Body for Life Book and Franchise Program. In the meantime, keep going strong and never, ever, give up!

With Respect and Admiration,
Your Coach,

Looking for one more person

From: Bill Phillips
August 11, 2017

I can help you transform your health and lose weight for good… or my services are FREE + $500!

You’ll get results, guaranteed! I can make this offer to only one more person this year. Specifically, I am looking for one person, over age 40, who has between 25 and 50 lbs they want to get rid of, once and for all. I am looking for just one more person to attend our health and fitness Transformation Camp, September 15, 16, 17, at our Center in Colorado. I am looking for someone who has tried and failed to lose weight and keep it off using diet programs such as low-carb methods and low-calorie plans.

I am looking for just one more person who really wants to get in shape but who feels they may have a slow metabolism, which often produces symptoms like fatigue, weakness, sugar cravings, and easy weight gain (it is hard to lose weight with a diet-damaged metabolism).

Warning: If you have a damaged metabolism and you try again to lose weight by dieting and cutting calories, you are making things worse. You are in real danger of damaging your health permanently if you Yo-Yo diet.

I’m looking for one person who is ready and willing to take action now to change their life forever. Are YOU the one person I am looking for?

If so, please send me a note at the e-mail I’ve included at the bottom of this letter. I need to hear from you right away — this last available spot to our 3-Day Fitness and Healthy Weight Loss Camp will be taken within hours.

I’ve already helped hundreds of men and women over 40, and over 50 like myself, become fit and stay fit by getting to the core of the problem that causes us to gain weight to begin with. You see, my program is different in that we do a complete assessment of your metabolic health and rate. Then, I can help you fix your metabolism so you lose bodyfat without dieting–without cutting out carbohydrate foods and without starving yourself.

Unfortunately, many people who have lost weight with low-carb and low-calorie diets have damaged or even broken their metabolism so to speak. A stunning study by the National Institutes of Health revealed the LONG TERM metabolic damage that dieting causes. The scientists followed up with people who lost weight on the Biggest Loser TV Show and they found that 13 out of 14 had gained weight back and some weighed even more than before. Even though the Biggest Loser participants regained the weight, their metabolic condition did NOT go back to where it was before the weight loss.

IMPORTANT: This is why more than 95% of people who lose weight can’t keep it off.

The scientists have concluded that the #1 problem is that diets destroy the metabolism. Your metabolism is basically the rate at which your body produces energy and the rate it burns fuel. The metabolic rate goes DOWN sharply when you diet and cut calories. Yes, you lose weight for a short time but the body fights back and stops your diet from working by out smarting you and the diet. You lose motivation, strength, and muscle (muscle burns a lot of calories). Your thyroid hormones go down which further slows your fat burning potential. Leptin and ghrelin level change–these two chemicals control your appetite and energy levels to an extent.

Dieting can make you weigh less for the short term, but it sets you up for long term trouble. Basically, your metabolism becomes broken.

Again, I want to point out that in the recent ‘Biggest Loser study’ the people regained the weight BUT THEIR METABOLISM NEVER RECOVERED!!

And this is the new illness caused by dieting… a suppressed, slow, weak metabolism. This kills your energy. It leads to more weight gain. It becomes so frustrating some people give up and think that they can’t get in shape… that it is something that will never happen for them. Doctors don’t know how to fix a broken metabolism. All they can do is give you prescription drugs to treat the disease symptoms you’ll face… heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, stroke, even some forms of cancer are caused by being chronically overweight. Your doctor might advise you to lose weight through diet and exercise, but with a broken metabolism, you won’t see the results others get. Just like a person with a broken leg… we have to treat that FIRST… before we start running and lifting. It’s the SAME with a broken metabolism… we have to treat that first, then eating healthy and exercising will work.

How do you fix a broken metabolism?

Ask your doctor. Ask a personal trainer. Ask a nutritionist. You WON’T find an answer.

How do you fix a broken metabolism? I know exactly how to do it because it is what I have specialized in for many years. I have been teaching fitness transformation for almost 30 years. Practicing it personally for nearly 40 years. I know what works and what doesn’t. I have warned people about the dangers of dieting for decades. And I have been putting people on a prescription of metabolism boosting, muscle building, energy lifting, and life extending programs before and after my book Body-for-LIFE was published 18 years ago.

Body-for-LIFE is a basic and scientific plan of exercise and nutrition that helps people lose bodyfat while gaining muscle. It helps people get in shape without destroying their metabolism. But since Body-for-LIFE, I have become very aware of the fact we have an epidemic in this country–an epidemic of broken metabolisms caused by dangerous diets that have been so popular over the years.

What I do now is I help people diagnose the degree of diet damage to their metabolic rate using state of the art science. And once we can see exactly what condition a person’s metabolism is in, I put them on a plan that is proven to fix their metabolism (I call it Met-FIX). We repair, restore and renew the metabolism so it burns more fat, more calories, and it literally produces more ENERGY for life. Once the metabolism is repaired and revved up, you can go on with your life, eating healthy, doing quick workouts four to six times a week, and you won’t regain weight. IN FACT, you will get leaner, stronger, and feel younger than you have in a long time. Not only that, but you will greatly reduce your risk of heart attack and cancer… you will double the probability of living a decade or more beyond predicted lifespan for our generation.

I can FIX your broken Metabolism in six months, or it’s FREE.

When you come to my 3-Day Course (we call it the Met-FIX Masters Camp), we conduct a complete diagnostic evaluation and then we target an exercise and nutrition plan that will work for you — it’s a complete plan of action that is practical and proven to work. Follow the plan to the best of your ability. You don’t have to get it right all the time… get it right even 80 percent of the time and you will succeed. In six months, we will test your metabolic rate again (we use third party facilities so you get independently verified data).

Your metabolic rate will be up by at least 20% and you will be gaining strength and energy… AND you will be losing bodyfat WITHOUT dieting! That is my promise to you. It’s a promise made with a real understanding of what causes a broken metabolism and what can fix it… and that is science. But, if you do not get those results I just promised, here’s your insurance policy guarantee: I will pay you back the entire $2,495 enrollment and treatment fee for your six month Met-FIX Program. On top of that, I will pay you an additional $500 for your honest effort. My Met-FIX plan is safe, sustainable, efficient, and scientifically proven effective.

You have nothing to lose (other than unhealthy bodyfat) and everything to gain by making this investment in YOU. Please, accept my invitation and challenge to change your body and health for life. I promise I can help you fix your broken metabolism or my services are FREE (and I will pay you $500 just for giving it an honest effort). Try getting your doctor to give you a guarantee on a treatment… fat chance! Imagine a surgeon promising that he or she can fix your back pain, or the procedure is free. Heck, not even a personal trainer will give you six months free if they can’t help you fix your body and get in shape. I do offer a guarantee though. And if you are selected and qualified to fill the one last spot we have for the September 15, 16, 17 Met-FIX Masters Camp, I promise you will be more happy and healthy in six months, or it’s free!! What more could you ask for?

If you want to find out if you qualify, please send your name, email address, and phone number to: Bill@Transformation.com and be sure to give a brief description of your diet history. We will contact you right away and help you decide if this is the right plan for you.

Please, don’t procrastinate… send me an email right away to: Bill@Transformation.comand let’s get you on the road to better health and fitness for life.

Workout for Wishes LIVE with Bill Phillips

bspinning

ALL NEW: Workout with Bill Phillips – LIVE!

Starting Monday, July 10, at 6:00 pm (MT) and continuing through Sunday July 16, I will be coming to you LIVE (on Fecebook’s live-stream feature) for a series of workouts and talks about the best way to train for fat loss, muscle gain, health and longevity. Each session will include a 25 to 40 minute workout that you can follow along with at home or in your gym. You can watch Bill Phillips’ LIVE Workouts on your iPhone, android, tablet, laptop, desktop, etc. After the workout, join the discussion of how to get the best results from your workouts. I’ll answer your questions live, and give specific do’s and do not’s when it comes to lifting and intense interval aerobics.

If you have been to Camp and spent time with me already, you will be reminded of a lot of the workout principles you might have forgotten. I will also introduce new information based on years of research and practical experience… new ways you can boost intensity, increase gains, and get better results faster.

If you have not been to Camp and have not yet worked out with me in person, this is a way you can get up close and personal with me and feel what I am teaching and how it can help you, starting that day! It is also a way for you to get a feel for what Camp is like, without making a $1,500+ investment.

I’ve been paid over a thousand dollars an hour for personal training and coaching jobs with the rich and famous, celebrities and pro athletes. We charge between $1,500 and $3,000 to attend one of our 3-day Transformation Camps. And, we sell out every event we do. But with this LIVE workout week with me, I am asking for only $13.86 to workout with me live and to hear my best secrets and techniques for making the best progress you have ever mad. At least seven hours of workouts and seminars from me for just $97 (7 x $13.86).

And get this, ALL the funds will go to the Colorado Make-A-Wish Foundation so they can continue to help make life better for children ages 2-17 who are facing life-threatening illness. Last year we raised over $11,000!! This year, my goal is to give Make-A-Wish a check for $15,000 in just one week of fundraising. And I am not asking for something for nothing. I want to give you far more value than $97 for the week of Bill Phillips LIVE workouts and seminar discussions. I think I can help you get motivated to workout harder, more often and with better form and strength. That will allow you to lose more fat, get stronger, improve your health and help you live a longer, better life. What you gain could change or even save your life. What you pledge, $97, will immediately make a difference in the lives of kids who need our prayers and support.

So what do you say? Yes? Yes! (Please say Yes!)

Then, get ready for a full week of awesome workouts with me, LIVE, and also be ready to learn how to get your best results ever. I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I have helped guide some of the world’s greatest transformations… I am confident I can help motivate, educate and transform you too!

When you sign up, you will be sent a private group link (on or before July 7) that you will be able to use to gain VIP access to our private/closed group on Facebook. This is where the workouts will air live and where you can get answers to your questions about training for the best results. In the Facebook group, you can also connect with others, who, like you, are transforming their health and fitness. After you sign up, you will get an email with detailed and easy to follow instructions for how to join ‘Bill Phillips LIVE Workouts.’

A Personal Father’s Day Message from Bill Phillips

From: Bill Phillips
June 18, 2017

I’m writing to wish all the Dads out there a Happy and Healthy Father’s Day and I also have a personal message to share with everyone who cares about and loves their family.

Unfortunately my Dad passed away 12 years ago—he was just over 60 and had so many more years of life ahead of him. My Dad was my business partner and my best friend. When I started the company MET-Rx, then EAS, Muscle Media, and Body-for-LIFE, my Dad was in my office every day telling jokes and giving me key insight, legal and business advice (he was a lawyer and had his MBA in his early 20’s even though he had three kids by the time he was just out of high school).

Bill and BP

His name was also Bill Phillips and right before his death I thanked him and held his hand and told him it was an honor to carry his name.

My Dad’s friends called him “BP” and I called him Dad. He never got too caught up in work and never really stressed out about it. To him being successful just meant he had enough money to pay the bills and enough time to relax and go fly fishing or go hiking often in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

On Father’s Day, I don’t have a Dad to buy a gift for or take a card to. I don’t have a Dad to go to the ball game with anymore. It is instead a day I miss my Dad more than ever.

I realize each year that so much of my good luck and the success I enjoyed in my previous companies was because of my Dad. He taught me how to work hard, work smart, how to push myself to reach meaningful goals… he taught me how to find the best rivers and streams to fly fish and how to appreciate and enjoy nature. He tried to help keep me humble and grounded during my most successful years at EAS but those lessons took me a little longer to learn and probably didn’t set in until after he was gone.

My Dad was a great man who lived a simple, smart, unassuming life. I miss him very much, especially today. Yet I am very grateful for all the years we had and I know the best thing I can do to honor him is to move forward and live a good, productive, and balanced life.

Knowing what it’s like to lose my Dad unexpectedly, and long before his time, gives me extra passion and determination to help other Fathers transform their health so their family doesn’t have to go through the pain and grief that comes with losing a loved one to a preventable disease. It’s sad but true: more than 3,000 Dads have already died this weekend from heart disease alone. Most of those deaths were preventable by a few basic lifestyle changes.

For over thirty years I’ve been teaching men and women from all walks of life how to incorporate an intelligent and practical exercise, nutrition, and fitness program into their way of living. It’s not a diet, a fad, a silly gimmick like so much of what is out there on TV commercials and internet marketing schemes today. My method is based on a bedrock of scientific truth, medical research, and thousands of hours of real-word experience and application.

The most up to date version of the program I teach at my Transformation Fitness and Research Center in Golden, Colorado is called “Health for LIFE” (it’s also the name of a new book I’m working on… think of it as Body-for-LIFE 3.0). It has already helped countless numbers of people lose the unhealthy bodyfat (from 25 lbs up to 150 lbs.) while gaining energy and muscle strength. But it’s not just the outward appearance that dramatically changes in our clients and students… the main benefit of the Health for LIFE plan is that you will very likely live longer — you’ll enjoy greater quality and quantity of life! Physicians even follow my program to reduce their own risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer which are lifestyle related.

Now of course, none of us have a guarantee that we will live through our 80’s and even longer. In my Father’s case, he contracted an incurable and rare form of lung disease (which went undetected and dormant for decades) from environmental toxin (not too dissimilar from asbestos) that he was exposed to working in a factory as a teenager. The important thing to realize is that even though there are no absolute guarantees in life, far too many Fathers are dying of illnesses that could be prevented with exercise and healthy eating. Please, if you have loved ones that depend on you, don’t wait until it’s too late to change your body and life.

The best time to get well is before you get sick and that is the message I’ve dedicated my life to sharing. If you’re overweight, have unhealthy habits, if you’ve been procrastinating and putting off your efforts to get back on track with your health and fitness, please don’t wait any longer! Set a goal to lose 25 to 35 lbs. this summer while strengthening your muscles, improving your heart health, and cutting your risk of dying of a preventable illness in half.

A half hour of exercise 5 days a week – a combination of strength training and aerobics – will produce excellent results if you stick with it. And the key to eating right, as I explained in my book Body-for-LIFE, is to eat a balance of quality protein foods, healthy carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. Eat smaller meals more frequently and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Take your vitamins, Creatine, Omega-3’s and a quality protein supplement to help you get better health improvements faster.

Connect with others who are making healthy changes in their lives and most of all, please realize that other people need you and love you and your family is counting on you to be there. You have to take care of yourself – it’s one of the most important things you can do for others (it’s not selfish but rather self-less!). If you’re a parent, you have a tremendous responsibility to live a healthy lifestyle. We want you around for many, many years… far into the future! It does take some work to be healthy but the rewards are more than worth it.

Last but not least, I just want to say to my Dad: Thank You, I Love You, I miss you and I know that someday (not real soon, but someday) I’ll see you again.

Very Sincerely,

Bill Phillips

P.S. And by the way, if your Father is still here be sure to contact him right away and let him know how much he is loved and appreciated today. Don’t let the important things go unsaid. You never know for sure if you’ll get a second chance.
