Focus on What You Gain

I cannot emphasize enough that my programs and fitness challenges are not simply about weight loss. Unlike virtually all the popular diet programs that basically measure your success by how much less space you take up on the planet, my programs are different: It’s about gaining energy, increasing strength, renewing health, and decreasing bodyfat. So please, don’t make the mistake of measuring your success each day, each week, or each month, by the amount of weight a scale says you have lost. Measure your success by what you gain, not by what you lose. Gaining strength. Gaining muscle. Gaining energy. Gaining self-respect. Gaining self-awareness. Gaining self-trust. Gaining self-esteem. Gaining back control of your life! This is what Body for life, Transformation, and Back to Fit are all about! ~Bill Phillips

2015 Bill Phillips Challenge Rules and Recommendations


The Bill Phillips Fitness Challenge is intended as a fun and cooperative way to help people focus on their health and fitness and take action to make positive progress. The Challenge is free to enter and no purchase of anything is required.

By accepting the Challenge you have taken a big step in the right direction–most all of the incredible before to after transformations I have seen over the past two decades were from people who participated in one of my many Challenge events (going back to the very first one I promoted in 1992).

By accepting the Challenge, you have an opportunity to win rewards and by finishing all 12 weeks, you are certain to receive the very best prize of all: a better body and a healthier life. You have so much to gain by giving this Challenge your all!

+++The top transformation wins the grand prize — an all expenses paid trip for two to Maui, Hawaii!

All finishers who make progress and complete their Challenge and submit their before and after photos, and a written (500 words or less) transformation story, will receive a Certificate of Achievement for making a healthy change which makes a difference.

Plus, as I mentioned before, everyone who starts and finishes the Challenge WINS the best prize of all which is a healthier body and a renewed, more positive life!

All participants’ photos and stories will be reviewed by our Transformation Team here in Colorado and we’ll give you a score based 65% on your body change and the other 35% will come from your inspiring story of change (500 words).

Start your 12-week Challenge as soon as Monday, September 7, 2015 and no later than September 30, 2015 to be eligible for the rewards. You must be finished with your 12-week program no later than Wednesday, December 23, 2015 (this is a strict deadline and cannot be extended for any reason!).

This is a 12-week Challenge – that means the before photos and after photos must be taken 12 weeks apart. Photos from the front required, side and back photos optional. At the end of the 12 weeks each participant needs to send their before and after photos along with a 500 word letter, by Sunday January 3rd, to:

Transformation Challenge,
221 Corporate Circle, Suite K,
Golden, Colorado, 80401

The Grand Prize Winner will be announced on or before January 29, 2016 on my blog at and ‘Bill Phillips Transformation’ on Facebook.

The Challenge is open to people from all nations and everyone over the age of 18. I especially encourage people who have had success with Body-for-LIFE in the past to dive into this Challenge wholeheartedly and prove that no matter what your circumstances or age you can get back on track when you work for it!

Bill Phillips Birthday — 51 Years Young Today


Very happy and grateful to become 51 years young today! I was putting together some snapshots that show a quick reflection of my life today and I thought I would share it here with my blog readers.

I’m telling you, with fitness as a consistent part of your lifestyle you don’t have to look bad, feel bad, and become overweight and unhealthy as you age. With just a half hour of exercise a day, and relatively healthy eating most of the time (and taking my vitamins and creatine) I stay at about 8.5% body fat and my muscles are almost as strong as they were 15 years ago. I can’t do everything I could when I was much younger, but I can do a lot and I am grateful for that. My doctor says that fitness has kept my heart health excellent and that is a benefit of working out I really value these days.

I am so lucky to be married to a beautiful and smart woman…Maria is my best friend and love of my life. Her and I have both been through health transformations of our own a few years ago. We know what it’s like to be out of shape which makes being fit feel that much better. Maria and I get to do the work we love — helping others rebuild their bodies and renew their lives at our Transformation Fitness Center here in Colorado. We keep work balance though — we take plenty of days off to travel and enjoy life and our time together.

Life isn’t perfect of course… but it is very good and I feel so lucky to have made it to 51 years and to still be going strong. Thank you so much to all the friends who come to our Camps and who allow us to be a part of your lives. And thank you to everyone who has wished me well today (there are so many kind and thoughtful people in the world today). And thank you Maria for making everyday worth celebrating. I am looking forward to many more years of living life! ~Bill Phillips

Rick Lost 53 Lbs of Bodyfat and Gained 12 Lbs of Muscle!

Screen Shot 2015-09-19 at 7.15.49 AM

This is Rick Bullard, a 15 year active member of the Air Force, stationed in Idaho. He saw a picture of himself stepping out of the water on New Year’s Day (Polar Bear Plunge). At 250 lbs, he said he could hardly recognize himself. He made the decision to make a change and signed up for my Transformation Challenge along with his wife Amber. They traveled to my 3-day fitness camp at our center in Colorado and got connected to a supportive community of good people who were all striving to get their fitness back on track. 

Throughout this year, Rick made steady progress by following my workouts, nutrition, and supplement plans to the T. When I saw him again last week at Transformation Camp, I could hardly believe how much he had changed. He has dropped 53 lbs of bodyfat, added 12 lbs of muscle, practically doubled his strength and there’s no doubt he has improved his heart health and mental clarity as well.


We named Rick and his wife Amber, who is also active duty Air Force, as our $5,000 winners in our last contest. I look forward to sharing more about Amber and the incredible changes she has made in the near future. For now I just wanted to show you all what’s possible — Rick did it with a full time, demanding job in the Air Force, and with a busy schedule his family keeps. Rick has set new goals and is aiming to improve even more over the next 12 weeks.

Congratulations to Rick and Amber and thank you for your sacrifice and service! ~Your friends, Bill & Maria Phillips

Keys to Eating Right: Lose Fat & Build Muscle

Exercise is important and so is nutrition. Yes, we all know that we should eat right but knowing is not enough… it’s knowing and doing that transforms us. One of the reasons it is such a challenge to change our eating habits is because those patterns are deeply engrained. When you look at how many years you’ve spent developing those patterns, it can add up to decades. It’s not going to take that long for us to get back on track with healthy eating if we follow the right approach. Watch my video at the link below and learn more keys to eating right: Back to FIT Nutrition
