Workout for Wishes LIVE with Bill Phillips

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.’

++By the way, if you can’t join me live because you have something else scheduled in our live broadcast hour, no problem! Just go to our members-only private facebook group and you can watch the show ON DEMAND… at YOUR time. Watch the live recorded show and join in!

++July 10 – July 16 is the ONLY time we will be doing this in 2017! One week of LIVE workouts with Bill Phillips — all proceeds support Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado. To make a pledge and sign up for the private, LIVE workouts with me, visit our sign up page at the link below:

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.

What is Bill Phillips Camp? Each summer we have a special 3-day camp at my Fitness Center in Colorado. At camp, I lead a small group of people from all walks of life, through an experience called “Transformation Camp.” People have come from all over North America and from the furthest away corners of the world to attend. Doctors and lawyers, merchants and marines, moms and dads, college students and retired university professors… all have come to Transformation Camp with one goal in mind: Get Healthy… for LIFE! And that is what hundreds of attendees have gone on to do! Our clients have lost anywhere from 25 ot 125 lbs of fat, while gaining muscle and energy following our healthy, sustainable, proven and practical program of precise exercise and smart nutrition.

Medical Doctor, Louise Thurman, calls attending our camp the “…very best health decision she has made in her life.” Since camp, Dr. Thurman has lost her unhealthy weight, gained energy and strength, and is now an active, athletic person who is not letting age slow her down. She is also an inspiration to her patients!

The New Bill Phillips Challenge Winner Is…

We just finished going through all the before and after pictures and stories from our 2015 Challenge. WOW! I want to congratulate everyone who started and finished — there are so many great transformations and inspiring stories from this round. Some of you have continued to build on your previous success and momentum and others have done a complete turn around and gotten back on track. I encourage everyone who participated in the 2015 Challenge to keep going strong and continue what you have started. I say it often, and it’s completely true, everybody wins in this game because the ultimate prize is having control of your body and getting your health back! Congratulations! Your change makes a difference and inspires others to improve their lives too!

Our Contest Winner…

I’m happy and excited to congratulate Steve Dobbs for winning the 2015 Bill Phillips Challenge! Steve rebuilt his body and renewed his health at age 51. He lost more than 27 lbs. of bodyfat and gained at least a solid 8 lbs. of muscle in just 12 weeks. He started with his before picture on September 28 and took his after photo and measurements 12 weeks later on December 20, 2015. Steve followed my Back to FIT Program on Bodybuilding.com/BillPhillips and put his heart and soul into each workout. Like myself, Steve had been in top shape before but adversity and life got in the way and he found himself looking and feeling old and tired. It’s incredible to see how much younger and stronger he became in just 12 weeks. Now Steve has set new goals and continues to improve, which is great because he just won an all expenses paid dream vacation for two to Maui where he can have fun in the sun and be proud of his renewed body for life. Way to go Steve Dobbs — you worked hard and you earned this victory! Now you are inspiring others to get fit too ~Bill Phillips

Steve Dobbs 12 Week Bill Phillips Challenge Success Story

Life is always full of challenges, which can also present opportunities. Over the past 3 years I’ve had my share of both! In 2013, I left a successful job in Oklahoma to move across states to be closer to family. I joined a small company but after only 9 months the company did not survive and I found myself without a job. I started a consulting business which meant very long work hours and unhealthy eating habits. I also told myself that “I had no time to exercise.” After nearly a year of this routine I found myself out of shape with an embarrassing “Baby Buddha Belly.”

After deciding I needed to get back into shape, I looked up an old friend – Bill Phillips. I’d never met Bill but he has been part of my life for the past 16 years. You see, I had successfully completed a Body-for-LIFE challenge in 1999. I was the 4-Week Sprint Champion and finished in the top 10 in my category. When I looked up Bill the first thing I found was news about his knee surgeries and his subsequent transformation. After reading Bill’s story, I realized that I was in a very similar situation. I immediately knew I could do this AGAIN….even at the age of 51. I once again eagerly accepted Bill’s challenge to get back into shape.

I cut out Bill’s own before and after pictures and envisioned myself making a change like that. I visualized it and focused my mind. Bill said, “If you’ve done it before, you can do it again.” It was time to take my BEFORE pictures. I was so embarrassed that I didn’t want anyone to take my picture, so I went out and bought a tripod and remote. These before pictures were even more embarrassing than I thought they would be, however they did provide a lot of motivation.

I studied Bill’s Back to FIT program online. I knew that Bill had a life time of fitness and nutrition experience and all I needed to do was to “follow the directions.” I was amazed at my final transformation and for the first time I was ready to show people my BEFORE pictures….only because it was next to my AFTER pictures.

After looking at my pictures of my first transformation at age 35 that were side by side to this transformation, my daughter gave me the best compliment by saying, “Dad, you look better than you did 16 years ago.”

At age 51, I’m now healthier, inside and out. I have a nutrition and exercise program that I can follow for the rest of my LIFE. I’m getting married to a wonderful woman in six months and I’m ready for what new opportunities await me.

For anyone who might read this and be in a similar situation that I was –that even Bill Phillips was in — my heartfelt advice is don’t let age stop you from getting in the best shape of your life!

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
