Grandmother Transforms from Fat to Fit



Grandmother Transforms from Fat to Fit: Becomes Youthful and Vibrant and Healthy Again!

Incredible transformation! I met this super-fit gal at our last Body of Work Camp. Her name is Terry, and YES that is actually her in both of these photos. These pictures were not taken very far apart either. In a matter of months, Terry totally rebuilt her body, at age 50, and renewed her life by following our program. Here’s where it gets even more cool… Terry is the Mother of Amber Loucks Bullard who has become one of our dear friends over the past couple years. Amber and her husband Rick and their great kids Seth and Madi have all been to our fitness camps on multiple occasion. Amber and Rick are both active duty Air Force (we thank you and respect you both for your Service, we really do!).

Amber and Rick have each made incredible changes in their health since we met. But what surprised me more than anything I have seen in quite a while is the TRANSFORMATION OF AMBER’S MOM!! She lost more than 45 lbs of unhealthy weight and she is building strong and shapely muscles now too! She looks 10 (maybe even 15?) years more youthful!

Terry you are an inspiration and Amber you are the KEY. It is one thing to be able to change yourself (and that’s a good place for us all start). And it is an even more incredible phenomenon when you can inspire others in your own family to transform their health and fitness. Amber, you have the makings of a true grand champion… we’ll see how that progresses over the next year… never know, you might need some new garage space for a Bentley prize one day… anything is possible for you! Terry, Amber, Rick, Seth and Madi… your family is setting an inspiring example of health transformation and you are all making a big difference!!

So proud of you all! Please keep up the Good Work! ~Bill Phillips

Bill Phillips Updates on Camps, Right Nutrition Shakes, and the NEW Challenge!

From Bill Phillips
May 17, 2016

CAMPS: We are excited to be getting ready for our next sold-out fitness camp this weekend! We have a great group of people coming to Colorado for our 3-day seminars, workshops and workouts. We will have beautiful sunshine and 80-degree weather and a lot of energy and motivation to go around!

Our special Body of Work 20th Anniversary Camps in June and July are fully booked and sold out also. The only way to get in at this point is to be on the waiting list in case somebody with a reserved spot can’t make it. If you are not on the ‘stand-by list’ already and want to be, just in case a spot opens up, please email us at: — we have some very exciting, fun, and inspiring experiences planned for participants of Body of Work Camp!!

The last summer Camp we have scheduled for this year is August 12, 13, 14. There are a couple spots available and if you’re interested send us a message at:

RIGHT NUTRITION SHAKES: Our inventory of RIGHT protein and vitamin-rich, meal-replacement shakes has been next to nothing for 7 weeks now. Even I am down to my last 12 servings of vanilla RIGHT and have been eagerly waiting for news that more is on the way. Today I got that news thank goodness… and I am happy to pass this update along to my fellow RIGHT-dependent fitness transformers.

Our warehouse will be filled with RIGHT (Vanilla and Chocolate) again next week. We will fill back orders right away and then quickly move to shipping pre-orders, which you can place starting today. Orders will ship in within 7 days and if you reserve your next supply now, you can make sure you will be restocked for the summer. You save $70 (you get 24 shakes FREE) when you stock up with an order of 8 containers of RIGHT. If you pre-order this week, I will also throw in 30 servings of our popular cellular energy supplement STRONGEVITY Rx for free (valued at $50) along with every 8 containers of RIGHT you order. This special gives you $120 of free supplements for every 8 containers (12 servings each) you reserve by pre-ordering this week.

I am putting aside a couple cases for myself–I have RIGHT shakes 3 times a day along with a 2 or 3 healthy whole food meals. It’s my simple, sustainable, surefire way to eat right and get the quality nutrition my body needs day after day. If you are interested in our healthy supplements, you can visit our online supplement store is at: and learn more.

Because I am consistently eating right and getting in my workouts 5 or 6 days a week, I am as strong as I have been since my early 30s and I stay below 9 percent bodyfat all year long. Most importantly, my recent medical exam shows I have A+ heart health. This program isn’t just for me of course. It can work for anyone who follows it consistently and many of our Camp students are proving that with their own health transformations. Whatever you do, please don’t let being over age 40, or over age 50 (like me) slow you down or stop you from being as healthy and strong as you have ever been!

TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE: This past week we announced that the Winner of our most recent Transformation Challenge is Bill Belfert — who at age 51 completely rebuilt his body (50 lbs of fat lost; 10 lbs of muscle gained this year!). Bill Belfert had an incredible reason for making this health transformation happen… his doctors needed him to be strong and fit to donate one of his kidneys in an exchange program which will allow his wife to receive a life-saving transplant. Mr. Belfert has his surgery this week and we have him and his wife in our thoughts are prayers. We will keep the many friends of Bill Belfert who are reading this updated on the success of his surgery. The Belferts will have an all-expenses paid, dream vacation to Maui waiting for them to enjoy as soon as they recover. That is one of the prizes and rewards for Winning the Challenge and WOW… Bill Belfert has earned it!

Looking for motivation, direction, and support to take your own health and fitness to the next level? If so, please get ready to join our new Challenge which kicks off June 21. This next one will be the 20th Anniversary of the Body of Work Challenge that was documented in our Body of Work film. A lot of fun things are in store for this exciting summer Challenge. In just a couple weeks, I will post some very exciting information and news about how to enter this 20th Anniversary Challenge and participate in our motivating online program for FREE!

FREE WORKOUT CLUB FOR COLORADO ALUMNUS: As I mentioned recently, we are starting a series of free workouts here at our Transformation Center starting in June. We will host 12 workouts (not for beginners–for Alumni) and our first two dates are June 7 and 14 at 6:30 pm on each date. We’ll workout and then have a support group meeting to help everyone set some motivating summer fitness goals and to help everyone get connected. We have some great Colorado people who have attended Camps over the last year and I want to make sure you all get a chance to meet each other. We will be able to add 20 people to our group and to get on the list, please email us at and officially sign up. It will be a lot of fun and we will be enjoying some effing brutal summer workouts together… I will be leading the exercise sessions myself!

image3121241.jpgTHANK YOU: My wife Maria and I have been working overtime to keep up with our growing Camp and Coaching programs and we are so grateful to all of you who have supported us so far this year. We love helping people improve their health and fitness. We can’t reach everyone out there who needs to make a healthy life change but we know this is our calling and we are committed to doing our part. We know what it is like to be stuck in a body that doesn’t look for feel healthy and we know that getting out of shape can happen to anyone, us included. We have had to both go through big health transformations of our own and this helps us approach our teaching with a humble and empathetic grounding. Maria and I also know that every body has the power to change and can be successful at this… everyone can improve their health this way. No diets, no fads, just the right facts and science in action.

Maria and I also want to thank all our customers for helping us continue our support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Part of our proceeds continue to go to Make-A-Wish; we just sent them another check which will go towards granting a child’s wish. Over the years, and through projects like the Body of Work film and through sales of the Body-for-LIFE book, over 600 children’s wishes have been granted. We remain committed to doing our part to strengthen this worthy charity and anytime you support us, you are helping to make a difference and we are grateful.

TRANSFORMATION LIVING: Maria and I both teach a proven, practical, safe and sustainable method for transforming your body and health. If you have been to one of our Camps and you are living the transformation now, keep going strong and never quit! Make transformation your lifestyle, not just a 12-week program.

If you are not on a healthy path now and you want to get back on track, we are here to help as much as we can. This isn’t a staged TV show or gimmick for us… this is a mission and we plan to be doing this work far into the future.

Stay tuned for an exciting summer of transformation and fitness! I’ll post another update soon; until then, and always, I’m wishing you health and happiness. ~Bill Phillips

Body-for-LIFE transforms to HEALTH for LIFE

Just received results from my recent medical check up which included an in depth blood test by Boston Heart Diagnostics. (Ask your doctor for that blood work if you are over 45 because it is the best information you can get on your heart health and more.) This chart (which is very personal information by the way…) shows some of my important results.

Folks over 45 (and over 50 like me) are crusin for a brusin if they neglect their health. Over a million people in America will have a heart attack this year. Don’t imagine for a second that you couldn’t be one of them. We ALL have to work to be healthy, myself included.

On my test results, you see information pertaining to 3 of the primary causes of disease and preventable death: 1) Cholesteol and other Blood lipids; 2) Systemic Inflammation (if chronic, inflammation is probably the number one cause of early death; and 3) Blood Sugar/Insulin (I eat carbohydrates with every meal and my blood sugar readings are spot on optimal–don’t believe the BS that you have to go no carb or even low carb to have insulin and glucose balance).

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 12.54.49 PM

In all 3 of these areas shown in the chart, the results are optimal. Further artery tests indicate no aging the last 4 years; in fact, with my consistent workouts and supplements and eating right most of the time (not all the time) my cardiovascular system has literally become renewed and ‘younger.’ I am ‘younger’ at 51 than I was at 47 believe it or not. (My wife Maria is very much a force in me transforming my health after hitting a very low point some years ago.Thank you Maria!!)

My Dad used to say don’t take advice from someone who isn’t doing well in the arena they are teaching. For example, don’t take wealth building advice from a person in poverty. Don’t take mental health advice from someone who is crazy.

For health advice, find someone who is getting the results you want and do what they are doing… that might be a smart approach. (Its weird because many doctors are overweight and unhealthy as are many personal trainers).

Anyways… if you’ve been to my Transformation Camp, you know exactly what I am doing because I go over and over it and then it is what I ask you to do. Those who follow through and also FTDI (Follow The Darn Instructions) are often stunned by the results not just in their body change but in their HEALTH TRANSFORMATION.

Back in the Body-for-LIFE days the focus really was on building a better BODY. Today, what I teach is focused on your HEALTH. The good news is, if you do what you need to do to make a sustainable Health Transformation, you get a better body in the process. I used to say transformation can change your body and life. Today I say it can change your health and SAVE YOUR LIFE.

I want to say this again because it is so important: More than a million people in America will have a heart attack this year, don’t be one of them. Every 39 seconds on average, an unsuspecting man or woman in our country dies of heart disease–that’s 2,200 deaths just today! Most of the time it is preventable.

FREE ADVICE TODAY: If you’re not exercising consistently, START today. Walking and weights are a good place to begin. See your doctor for a check up if you haven’t been this year. Work your way up to doing intense interval aerobics and intense free-weight exercise, about a half hour a day, 5 or 6 days a week. That is what I do. Lifting (and lowering) free weights is safe, effective, efficient… we go for low impact and high intensity. Intensity in lifting is more important than variety.

With nutrition, you don’t have to eat right all the time… get it right MOST of the time and you’ll lose fat and get more fit. I eat a balance of healthy protein and carbs frequently throughout the day and I don’t eat at night… I give 10 to 12 hours between my last meal (dinner) and my first meal (breakfast) of the next day. Get all the essential vitamins and minerals everyday. If you are lifting weights for your workouts, take in extra protein. Don’t diet! Don’t over do it with exercise (4 hours a week is plenty if you do it in intense intervals).


It also helps to be a part of a healthy, supportive group like the teams that come together for our LIVE video workouts and workshops program, “BPLIVE”. You can find out more about the next session, and how you can get involved, at the following link:

Focus your mind by having a long-term vision for your health and then set short and mid-term goals for your health and fitness. Your goals only have meaning and are only motivating if they are aligned with your long-term vision and values.

If you won’t get healthy for YOU, do it for your FAMILY.

And of course…

Once you get started, don’t stop! Keep Going Strong, even on days you are ‘too busy’ or ‘too tired.’ Forget perfect and focus on progress. NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER QUIT ON YOURSELF!

Health-for-LIFE is the direction things are going. Don’t miss out! ~Bill

Can You Really Transform for Life?

BP1Can You Really Change? Is long-term Transformation Even Possible?

Recent news reports about overweight and obesity have sent the message that no matter what you do, it is very unlikely that you can change your overweight body into a fit one… and stay that way.

Yes, most people do regain weight after they diet. Most lost weight is found, true. But does that mean you can’t succeed? No it doesn’t and YES you can make lasting change for the better. You must have the right knowledge and you must put that knowledge into action. You must also have the right support and you have to understand that it is lifetime recovery through daily action steps that are repeated to the point they are permanently ingrained habits. Those habits must form routines. Those routines must become a new, healthier way of living… a new style of life… a new LIFESTYLE.

I have been teaching and practicing and researching and learning about this topic for three decades. There are a lot of myths out there and a lot of misinformation. A lot of ignorance, even among the so-called experts. And there are a lot of lies being intentionally told by a disreputable diet and fitness industry. Sweeping away the surface swill takes time and skepticism; research and study; trial, error, practice and persistence. Having poured myself, wholeheartedly, into this process for years and years, I have come to some basic and fundamental principles that work. Perineal truth that stands out and endures over time. Protocols and programs that I have formulated have been replicated with positive results; outcomes are predictable certainties. What worked twenty years ago works today and will work twenty years from now.

Okay, so What Really Works?

Weight loss and fitness transformation is a process of lifetime recovery. You never ‘get there’ to a point where you are done and no longer need to pay attention to it. That is the biggest diet myth of all… the myth that once I lose the weight and get fit, well then I’m done. It does NOT work like that.

At my 3-day seminars, workshops, “camps” the first emphasis is on getting the right knowledge. The second emphasis is on putting that knowledge into ACTION. Basic daily action steps, repeated over and over again, is where the abyss between knowing and doing is crossed. The habits must be practiced, reinforced with reward and feedback, and done with conscious intention every day. It is not complicated when you have the right method to follow.

Transform for LIFE one day at a time, one action step at a time.

1) Exercise most days. Lift weights. Do interval aerobics. A half hour a day with intense effort is better than longer workouts with low effort. My methods are safe, sustainable, effective and efficient. Consistency and intensity are the keys that make workouts work.

2) Plan your meals ahead of time and follow your plan. You can’t go wrong with eating a balance of healthy foods, smaller meals more frequently throughout the day and an occasional off day or free day gives flexibility and practicality which are key for long-term results. Take vitamins and supplement with quality proteins IF you can’t get in enough healthy whole-food meals each day.

3) Connect with a support group to give and receive encouragement and accountability. Transformation is a Team sport so to speak. Connect with a community of other people who are also trying to make healthy changes and you more than double your results in the short and long term.

4) Think it through! We get out of shape by not paying attention to what we are doing. We get in shape by taking the opposite approach which is to pay attention to our health! Don’t take your eyes off the road! Take a few minutes each evening to review how you did that day, give yourself feedback, make note of several things you did right that day and identify one thing you can do even better the following day. THINK, plan, prepare as a daily habit.

5) MINDSET is key! Set your mind in the right direction–cultivate a positive, healthy mindset by seeing your progress as success. Heck just making an effort to improve your health is success! Be proud of even trying because most people don’t! Success must be measured by the completion of key daily action steps and not just by the scale. Measure your success by what you have accomplished, not by what you haven’t. Focus on progress, not perfection!

6) Develop a long-term Vision for your Health (your vision is guided by your values). Set mid and short term, measurable, specific GOALS which are aligned with your Vision and Values… goals can be behavior or performance based (I Will Workout at least 60 times over the next 12 weeks) as well as result based (I Will be 30 lbs. Lighter within 6 months). Use your goals to answer the question, “What can I do between now and this time tomorrow to take a step in the direction of my goals and vision?” Remember that human beings are motivated by the prize more than the penalty… reward yourself in some personally meaningful way for the achievement of goals and you will get inspiration to set new goals and work to achieve them too. Momentum is a powerful force.

You CAN Change–There is Living Proof

I have seen so many people lose fat and gain muscle, transform their health, and change their lives over the long term with the approach I just described. Now is that the only way? No. There is more than one right way. But when you decide to change your health and improve your life, how many proven effective ways do you need? One! So pick one that works and stick with it for goodness sake! Don’t settle for a body you don’t like and a life you don’t love!

Accept the fact that you CAN change; YOU have the ability; and with that ability comes the RESPONSIBILITY. It is up to YOU to own that responsibility. No one is going to do this for you. You are the one your new body and life is waiting on! Make the decision to transform and doors will start opening for you!

When you change your health and life for the better you inspire others to do it too. Your change makes a difference. And Lord don’t we need it now in this country more than ever before! You can change the world around you by changing yourself. It’s true. And with the right method, it is pretty simple… I didn’t say EASY, I said simple.


NEW: Fitness Entrepreneurs Success-360 Camp!

From: Bill Phillips
Date: April 5, 2016

NEW! Fitness Entrepreneurs Success-360 Camp!

Personal Trainers, Gym Owners and Managers, Nutrition Experts, Strength Coaches, Vitamin Sellers, Fitness Writers and Teachers… all of you have a very important role in the future of Healthcare. In fact I believe that anyone who works in the fitness business, and does it the right way, can help people as much as a Doctor.

As I see it, the BEST time to GET WELL is BEFORE you get sick… before you have chronic disease. Helping people develop healthy and sustainable lifestyle habits is an essential part of the future of Healthcare in our nation. Our current system of medicine is incomplete. What is missing is the element of prescribing exercise and optimal nutrition as not just prevention but treatment of the most prevalent (and often preventable) illnesses such as: type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, anxiety and depression and so on. My future work is focused on building a credible fitness industry that is respected as a legitimate partner and part of our healthcare system and where training, nutrition and supplement experts can make a purposeful, positive, exciting and rewarding career.

We need to get away from the diet and fitness fads and frauds that have held our industry down for far too long. We need leaders who passionately practice what they preach and who know that being healthy and fit requires effort and commitment… being in good shape does take some work, but when you think about it, being sick isn’t exactly easy either. In fact, being sick is expensive and consuming and it is something no one wants for their future or the future of their family and friends. We have to recognize this and help others see this too, we have to change the collective mindset of America when it comes to what healthcare means to us. We have to be proactive and not just reactive when it comes to health. I believe we can truly and completely transform the health of our nation, and the way to do it is one person at a time. Each person who makes that change, makes a difference… they show others what is possible. That is the way it can happen. And it HAS TO happen! There is no way our the current medical system can deal with the tidal wave of preventable illness that looms on the horizon. That is the way I see it… what do you think?

What you just read is merely one of the many important topics we will be discussing in depth at our upcoming Success-360 Camp for Fitness Entrepreneurs this summer. This is a 4-day event being held at my Transformation Center in Colorado, August 4th through 7th.

At this first-of-its-kind Camp, I’ll not only challenge each and every participant to get in the best shape of their life with the help of me and our expert coaches, but I’ll be challenging each person to embody and passionately embrace the purpose of helping others transform their bodies and lives… and to do it for a living. Because I believe this industry offers the opportunity to do well by doing good, I’ll also share the keys I have used to succeed in business throughout my EAS and Body-for-LIFE endeavors. Going back to my MET-Rx business in 1991, and through the publication of over 100 issues of my Muscle Media magazine, and right on up to today. I have had success and yes, some setbacks, and I have learned a lot from each. Anyone who worked in this industry for nearly three decades would have a lot of knowledge to share and I am not special or much different than anyone else. I have a lot of experience that I have learned from and I have a lot to share and teach. I have launched businesses that have sold over 2 billion dollars worth of consumer products during my fitness career and I have had some good luck in publishing, with Body-for-LIFE being the bestselling fitness book of all time (all BFL proceeds that would have gone to me were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We have helped grant 600 kids wishes over the years and this is the accomplishment I am most proud of in my career so far).

Now I want to teach the next wave of fitness entrepreneurs how they can accomplish even more. My business teachings are aimed at helping you achieve ‘full circle success’ (Success-360). And by that I mean, you are enjoying the very best health while making a good living AND having the time , energy, peace of mind, and freedom to LIVE your life to the fullest.

This Camp is not all about making money, but at this event I will introduce you to two young entrepreneurs that I’ve mentored over the years, who have built businesses that have earned each of them more than 50 million dollars. Like me, they both started with nothing… no money, no advanced education, no short cuts or easy path… they worked hard and made some key decisions along the way which have paid off, BIG TIME, and they now are living the American dream. They will tell you in their own words what the keys to their success have been. To me, what’s more inspiring than what they each have gained is what they have given. Their success has made it possible for them to reach out and help their families and friends and numerous, noble charities and causes by sharing their blessings generously. At this Camp, you will learn all about their path to success and you will hear about their setbacks and challenges as well.

This will be an absolutely open, honest, straightforward Camp experience and what you learn here will change and expand the way you see your own realistic potential, I promise you that!

This Fitness Entrepreneurs Success-360 Camp will be body AND LIFE changing for everyone in attendance. It is about complete success. The ONE message I have for everyone at this event is: Never underestimate the Change You can Make in Your LIFE; and Never underestimate the Difference You can Make in the LIVES of OTHERS. Only 25 participants will be accepted in this Camp group. If you are interested (or if you know a personal trainer or fitness entrepreneur who might be) please contact us at:

We want people who are passionate about success and fitness to attend… we are looking for people who can get fired up and inspired about make a big difference in the lives of others. This is not just a ‘get rich’ summit, this is about gaining and giving. It is about becoming as healthy as you can be inside and out, it is about full-circle success! Still interested? Send me an email and let’s see if we can help you decide if this Camp is right for you, and if it is, let’s get you signed up so you don’t miss out! Like all our Camps, this one will sell out in advance so don’t delay! We guarantee the investment you make in this Camp will benefit you many times over!

Warning: Whey Protein Isolate is not the same as Concentrate

I only use Isolate and it works incredibly well for me and my clients at Transformation Center. Why not use whey concentrate? I get that question all the time and at my 3-Day Camp I explain my reasons in depth. Because so many people are confused about this topic, I am going to post a 4-part article in my blog at — this is the first part.

I have been researching and using protein supplements for nearly three decades. In 1991 I introduced the fitness world to a product developed for clinical nutrition called MET-Rx and it became the number one selling protein of that time. Then I designed a protein supplement and meal replacement shake called EAS Myoplex which has been used by millions of athletes over the years. Now I make and use a new and improved, protein rich, high quality version of Myoplex called RIGHT Nutrition which is not sold in stores and is made in small batches just for me and my clients. (MET-Rx and Myoplex are now owned and distributed by other companies and they do not contain the quality ingredients they originally did.)

Even though there is a legitimate science of nutritional supplements which has advanced over the years, the facts are sometimes hard to find because the fiction (and nonsense) is so pervasive. Supplement consumers have been fed a steady stream of half truths and lies about whey protein by the bodybuilding, and nutritional supplement industry. Over time, you notice that this deception permeates the field of nutrition so fully, that even some intelligent, and well meaning fitness pros and even some from the medical field unknowingly recommend low quality, and even potentially harmful, whey proteins to their clients and patients. You see there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between the low quality whey concentrate and the high quality whey protein isolates.

Look closer at whey protein concentrate and you’ll see a number of problems. For example, notice there is cholesterol in many inferior protein supplements which are produced with whey concentrate.

Research indicates that the cholesterol found in powdered products like whey protein concentrate has a tendency to go rancid or oxidize in this form. That is bad news especially for us over age 40 fitness buffs because oxidized cholesterol in particular can be responsible for the start of arterial plaque build–up in heart disease, as well as many other degenerative effects of aging.

The scientific literature clearly shows that powdered cholesterol is prone to oxidize, and that oxidized cholesterol is decidedly harmful. But this information is covered up and withheld from the users of supplements which contain whey protein concentrate. Concentrate is a much less expensive ingredient compared to the superior whey protein isolates which are free of cholesterol. Isolate, unlike concentrate, is also lactose free, fat free, and sugar free. Isolate is flat out better but is rarely used as the main source of protein in supplements because it costs so much that it cuts into the profit margin most companies try to make. I don’t use concentrate because being healthy is the main reason I workout and eat right today. At age 51 the fact that exercise and good supplements help the body look better is kind of a secondary benefit; avoiding heart disease and living longer is what matters most to me.

Unfortunately, many of the companies which have profited greatly by selling whey protein concentrate have done such an effective job of marketing over the years that most of the information you’ll receive on whey protein from fitness magazines, online ‘experts’ and supplement stores will usually fail to include even a passing mention of the harmful effects of oxidized cholesterol. And when it comes to the problems of whey protein concentrate, oxidized cholesterol is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ll continue this discussion soon in part 2 where you’ll learn that whey concentrate is up to 53% ‘dead’ protein (denatured) and does not have the unique and powerful health enhancing effects of bioactive, pure, un-denatured whey made with the proper, state-of-the-art isolation methods and technology.

Do You Remember The Red Lamborghini?



From: Bill Phillips
March 16, 2016

“It’s the same one. And Yes, we are giving it away… again! Seriously, Yes.” 

That is my answer to the question people have been asking about what we have planned for our 20th Anniversary Body of Work Challenge which kicks off this June 20th. “YES” we are putting up a blood-red exotic sports car, Lamborghini Diablo, as the top prize again… just like we did before. But not any ol’ Diablo… through weeks of research we have tracked down the original one from the Body of Work film (it is right now sitting in a garage in Los Angeles where the owner keeps it in mint condition) and we are getting it back… to give it away! People coming to the Body of Work Camp this summer can test drive the car and get pics with it… it’s kind of a famous car! Is it a practical thing to win or own… “No, not at all.” But it is cool and beautiful and fast… what’s more important though is it is a powerful iconic symbol of that breakthrough Challenge which started 20 years ago and which led to the Body of Work film and the Body-for-LIFE book which changed so many people’s lives. We are also aiming to raise another million dollars for our favorite charity, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, through the 20th Anniversary Challenge. Many more details coming soon!

The Red Lamborghini will be here at the Body of Work Anniversary Summer Camps. And lucky Camp participants really will be able to take it for a drive and get all the photos they want. It’ll be exciting and fun, and this is just one of the many surprises in store! For Body of Work fans, the Camp this Summer will be absolutely incredible. We will literally make the Body of Work film come alive and rekindle the spirit of that magical time of our lives.

All the spots we had available for the Body of Work Anniversary Camp have been reseved; however, I know from past Camps that plans do sometimes change due to unexpected circumstances. There are times we can make room for a few more people as we get closer to the event. If you are not already signed up for Body of Work Anniversary Camp, and you would like to attend, please send me an email right away to: and we will put you on our priority waiting list. We will do our best to see if we can fit you in. Like I said, for Body of Work fans, this is going to be such a motivating and inspiring, once in a lifetime experience. We are working on the details now — it all begins again this summer!


George is 150 Pounds Lighter!


George Umbreit attended one of my 3-Day Transformation Camps at my Center in Colorado. Incredibly, he went on to become 150 lbs lighter (385 lbs to 235 lbs — he’s 6’4″) by following my 25-minute workouts five days a week and eating 6 times a day (smaller healthy meals, and some nutrition shakes as meals). The keys for George’s success were CONSISTENCY and SIMPLICITY. He did the work I asked him to do–he followed the instructions. He didn’t do more exercise than I asked; he didn’t eat less than I asked. He took it one day at a time and he didn’t try to measure his success with a scale. He did the work and he let the results happen. Each month he made more progress. In about a year, his transformation looked like what you see in these photos.

George has kept the weight off for more than two years now and he has moved on with his life. He is a competitive ballroom dancer and a very active, strong, and energetic young man. He survived cancer as a child and suffered from depression for many years after that. George is grateful to have another chance at life and he is making the most of it.

If you have a lot of weight holding you down, be like George and do the work to set yourself free. You didn’t gain the weight overnight and it won’t go away quickly either. You don’t want the fastest way to lose weight… you want the healthiest way… a way you can sustain for life. Don’t ever give up because if you keep trying, like George, YOU WILL SUCCEED!! ~Bill Phillips

++ When you look in the mirror are you happy with the body you see? Have you tried and failed to lose weight and get healthy before? Do you feel trapped in a body that doesn’t look or feel good? If you answered yes to any of those questions, please listen to me now. For over 30 years I’ve helped people, like George, and thousands of others make stunning breakthroughs in their health and fitness. I’m absolutely certain I can help you too. IF you are serious about making a real change please come see me at my 3-Day Transformation Camp in Colorado. It will be the best investment in YOU and your health that you’ll ever make! We only have room for 2 more participants in my February 19, 20, 21 Camp. We have no Camp spots available in March. Send me a message right away if you’re ready to change your body and life:

Who else wants to lose 40 lbs of bodyfat while gaining energy and strength?


Some of you know my job used to be writing books and magazines and running a pretty big supplement business. I worked behind a desk most of the time and it had gotten to the point where I hardly ever got to do what I loved which is working directly with people and helping them transform their body and life. Today, working with people is almost all I do and I couldn’t be happier and more fulfilled. Through our transformation camps at my center in Colorado, we meet people (folks fly to us from all around the world) and educate them and motivate them. They learn how to take back control of their health. It’s powerful. And it is ALWAYS inspiring… and even stunning to see how much people can change. I never get tired of it and always get fired up when I see people succeed. Here’s an example…

The man in these photos is Steve Kracus. He’s 48 years of age, a husband, a father, and a computer engineer who also plays lead guitar in a local rock band in Ohio. Steve is humble and he isn’t one to brag, at all. So I want to brag for him a bit… this guy is changing his body and life right before my eyes. He has worked with great effort and determination to get rid of more than 40 lbs of bodyfat while he has gained a lot of solid muscle since he first came to transformation camp. He has literally made himself ten years younger physiologically. He is changing his body type completely… becoming a muscular athlete even though he started out not long ago as an average, aging American man. He is not just ‘losing weight’ — he is replacing fat with muscle and reshaping his body… and he is doing this in his late 40s. His heart health has improved even more than his body! The guy is going to be in the best shape of his life by the time he hits 50 and even then there is no stopping his improvement.

If you are in ‘before photo’ condition now, my advice is to BE LIKE STEVE. And by that I mean, start now to renew your body and life… and don’t give up! You can rebuild yourself… YOU REALLY CAN! If you want my help, write to me and we will help you sign up for my transformation camp: — and if you don’t want my help, still do it anyway!

Start by making the resolute decision to change. Take a before photo. Set an inspiring and specific goal of where you want to be in 12 weeks and 12 months. Start an intelligent and proven plan which includes balanced and healthy eating, complete nutrition, as well as strength training and aerobic exercise. Then connect with other good, positive people who are also making healthy changes so you can benefit from mutual and powerful support, encouragement, and accountability. Keep in mind that your healthy changes will inspire others to start getting fit too. And finally, never underestimate the change you can make; never underestimate the difference you can make. You have the ability to change and no one can take that away from you. You CAN do it, I promise!

Bill Phillips’ Embarrassing Before to Afters

From: Bill Phillips, Body-for-LIFE
December 13, 2015

How to Rebuild Your Body and Renew Your LIFE in 2016!

Life dealt me some adversity a few years ago in the form of a devastating injury to both my legs. I had to stop working out for months and I ate for pain relief instead of for fitness. The result is the before picture of me below. It was depressing and embarrassing and I realized that I am just like everybody else — when I stop working out and eating right my body gains fat, loses muscle and I feel old.



The good news is that even though adversity knocked me down, I was able to lift myself back up and get my health and fitness back on track. As you can see in the after photo of me above, I was able to lose the ugly fat and regain my strength. Now at age 51 I am still going strong and ever since I made my comeback, I have been helping other people get back on track. I teach a 3-day fitness transformation camp here at my center in Colorado and people have come from all around the world attend. Hundreds of people have done just what I have, some even did better than I did which is exciting and inspiring!

I teach people exactly what to do when they come to my 3-day workshop, workouts and interactive learning seminar. We train together, we eat together, we talk about how to achieve the health and fitness goals that inspire you. People leave with energy, clarity and motivation! Then they connect with a Team of others who are working to achieve their challenging changes too. When you put it all together, what I offer through my camps is a surefire formula for your SUCCESS!

What I teach at my camp comes partly from Body-for-LIFE, partly from new findings in recent science, and partly from my own experience of falling off track and then learning how to put the pieces back together and get healthier than ever, inside and out. What I teach is practical, proven, effective, and sustainable. It Works!

Are you ready to get back on track with your health and fitness? Have you been knocked down by adversity like I was? Do you want feel younger, look better, and have your doctor tell you your health is great? If you said YES to any or all of these questions, for God’s sake, come see me and let me help you make a transformation in your body and life that you can be proud of and get excited about.

If you want next year to be different than this year, you have to CHANGE your approach… you have to get new information, new motivation, and you have to put into action healthy habits that you can sustain for life! I am confident I can help you do all that and more.

Your investment in camp is $1,495 and that includes all three days of workouts, workshops, intense personal consultation with me, and we include all your healthy meals while you are here. I even take you out to dinner to one of my favorite restaurants (yes we will eat healthy!) which give us a chance to get to know each other well. Camp is challenging work and a lot of fun. It is also exciting because what it is all about is YOU and how to transform your body and health for life! Camp can be one of the very best investments in yourself that you could ever make, I guarantee it!

Our January Camp is completely sold out but we still have 4 spots open for our New Year’s Kick Off Camp on February 19, 20, 21. If you are truly READY to make serious and lasting healthy changes, write to me quickly at:

IF you are SERIOUS about changing your lifestyle and READY to transform, I urge you to TAKE ACTION and plan NOW to make 2016 your best and brightest and healthiest year ever!!

Write to me at:

And finally, I want to wish you and your family Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year! May you ALWAYS enjoy the best of health.
