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.’

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

IMG_5688

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: Bill@Transformation.com — 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 Birthday — 51 Years Young Today

billcollage

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

From: Mark Bell’s PowerCast Interview Team

Our very special guest for episode 100 is Bill Phillips — a man who helped shape the fitness industry as we know it today. He parlayed a self-produced steroid and supplement newsletter into opportunities to become a trainer for celebrities and athletes, to become the publisher of a pivotal industry magazine, to become the CEO of a hugely successful supplement company, and to become a retired multi-millionaire at age 34. Along the way, he brought innovative products like creatine and CLA to market for the first time, and brought the “body transformation challenge” genre into the mainstream.

Bill tells the story of how the ability to “get shit done” led him down this path and offers advice to others about seeking and managing success. He also relates how a painful accident a few years ago led him to find a new love and to rekindle his passion for helping people transform their lives.

Planning overrides Procrastination

What I’ve discovered is that one of the reasons people put off, procrastinate, and postpone is simply because they’re not prepared. Quite often, that’s what it comes down to. And while the stereotypical advice, “Stop Procrastinating!” certainly has merit and may be offered with the best of intentions, the solution is conspicuously absent. How do you stop procrastinating? How do you “Just do it!”? Procrastination is a side effect of a lack of preparation and planning. By “preparation,” I mean gathering the essential information and acquiring the knowledge you need to accomplish your goals. And by “planning” I mean deciding how and when you will apply the information you’ve acquired. When you are prepared, and you have a plan, you will not procrastinate. You will move forward and you will ‘just do it,” because you’ve prepared to do it and planned to do it! ~Bill Phillips

Are you driving, or just going along for the ride?

I don’t know anyone who can honestly tell me they ended up in poor physical condition, overweight, or weak on purpose. It’s something that happens unintentionally. Oftentimes, when people focus their attention on their careers, their education, or dealing with a life crisis, they put their health and fitness on “cruise control.” They let go of the steering wheel and take their eyes off the road. Before long, their physical condition and health are completely off track. The style of living that causes poor health is not that complicated to understand. And, fortunately, neither is the process of getting back on track. But you have to disconnect the cruise control, put both hands on the wheel, and focus your vision on where you want to go. You have to start driving, and stop just going along for the ride. You have to intentionally undo the things that happened accidentally. ~Bill Phillips

Don’t Believe This Lie Going Around about Exercise

beach-running-gett_2642708kI have been teaching people the benefits of weight lifting and of intense interval aerobics for more than 20 years. Six million Body-for-LIFE books were picked up by readers around the world and many of them put my quick, effective workouts to work with good results.

Now even though I am an advocate for interval workouts, I find the attached article absurd and borderline offensive. In the write up, a person who claims to be an expert on fitness, makes the claim that ‘cardio’ causes cancer, heart attacks, and increases in bodyfat.

The FACTS clearly show (facts backed up by thousands of published studies) that virtually ANY exercise is better than no exercise. Brisk walking, jogging, swimming, can all be safe forms of cardio-vascular and cardio-respiratory exercise. I want everyone to enjoy the benefits of physical activity–it is the best medicine there is for living longer and living better.

One meta-analysis published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Rehab looked at 33 studies with 883,372 total test subjects… researches determined that people who do cardiovascular exercise (‘cardio’) live much longer than people who don’t. “All-cause mortality was reduced 33%.”

If the topic is ‘over-training’ or doing extreme amounts of exercise, you can do that with weights, with intervals, or excessive jogging or running. Over-training is NOT the same as ‘cardio.’

Just because I am a lifter and sprinter, I would NEVER claim that it is ‘my way or the highway.’ Minute for minute, my intense workouts probably give you the best return on your investment of time in the gym… but that does not mean there aren’t many other healthy ways to get active! If you’ve read the attached article or heard other so-called experts claim that cardio causes obesity, cancer, illness, don’t believe it!! Common sense and science tell us this writer is dead wrong!
