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!

You Can Do it Too!

The first step all our successful clients took is the one you can take right now… send me an email expressing your interest in camp and let me know you are READY to take action and change your body and health for life!

We have ONE spot left. And this is our LAST scheduled camp of the year. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to change your body and life! Someone will take this last spot within hours! I hope it is YOU!

Update: October 17, 2013 — George is Now 144 lbs lighter!

fbpost1

George.jpg

I’m excited to share this new update about George Umbreit, a cancer survivor and inspirational hero to me and many others! George is now 144 lbs lighter — he started at 378 lbs and when I weighed him on the scale at my Transformation Center in Colorado yesterday, he was a healthy and strong 234 lbs!! Not only that, but George is building strong, healthy muscles, gaining energy, and inspiring many others to confront and conquer their own struggles with being overweight and suffering depression. Congratulations George and keep up the good work!!!

————————-

Perhaps the best Transformation I have ever witnessed!

Over the past 20 years I have been fortunate to be a part of some incredible body and life transformations. I used to regularly feature heroic, real-life before to after success stories in the magazine I used to write and publish, Muscle Media. In 1998 I made a documentary film about how people can transform their lives through fitness, positive thinking, and setting challenging and exciting goals for themselves.

And of course, my book Body-for-LIFE was all about how ordinary people can experience extraordinary personal growth by renewing their health and building their lives on a solid foundation of fitness.

Ever since then, I have stayed active helping people make positive changes in their lives but mostly at one-on-one level. I love teaching and encouraging people in person and in a situation where I can help them grow over time… and that is what I now have the opportunity to do at my private Transformation Fitness Center here in my hometown, Golden, Colorado. It is here that I have the opportunity to put the key tenets I’ve learned over the years to work on a daily basis… all with the focused intention of helping real people make really, really incredible changes to their bodies and lives. I love my work and am so grateful I get to do this full time. I intend to be helping people transform, God willing, right up until my very last breath.

I love my work because I get to play a small part in the miraculous body and life changes of people like George Umbreit. As you can see in his before and after pictures here, not only did he completely change physically but he has literally become more alive! No longer is he carrying 144 lbs of extra (and unhealthy) bodyfat. And no longer is he carrying the weight of depression, self-doubt, and isolation.

From the Brink of Death, a New Man is Born

George, age 23, is a reborn man: confident yet humble; happy and healthy; inspired and inspiring! Where he once was isolated (some days only leaving his room for ten minutes), now he has dozens of friends and lives an active lifestyle in the beautiful outdoors here in Colorado.

I can truly say that George’s stunning transformation is right up there with the top two or three I have ever witnessed (and I have seen hundreds of thousands of great transformations through my career in health and fitness). In fact, I am not sure I have ever seen it done better than this. Especially when you consider how far George has climbed to stand where he stands now. You see, when George was younger, he was told he may not live to see another birthday. Leukemia is a frightening diagnosis for any parent and child–George found himself in a brutal struggle to survive. Months of devastating chemotherapy and a nearly year-long stay in Children’s Hospital took him to the edge of life and death. No child should ever have to endure that much pain and suffering.

ghospital

Thank God, the doctors efforts and George’s incredible will to live pulled him through. I remember his wish being granted by our Make-A-Wish chapter here in Denver–when he got out of the hospital, he went on a Disney adventure he remembers well to this day.

The Cancer was Gone, but the Emotional Pain Remained

Physically, George was cured; but over the years, the emotional trauma of the disease simmered under the surface until it came out in the form of paralyzing anxiety and depression. He used food to ease the pain and calm the fear, like so many of us do at one point or another in our lives. Years went by and George’s weight climbed to nearly 400 lbs. (he is 6’4″). He felt out of place amongst peers of his age, trapped in a body that he didn’t like, isolated, lonely, angry and he almost lost all hope.

A Life-Saving Idea

One of George’s counselors and mentors, Charles, had been working out at my Transformation Fitness Center. After seeing George struggle and knowing that he was not responding very well to typical therapy and treatment options for depression and PTSD, Charles had a idea. That idea was the breakthrough that saved George’s life, again.

Charles and I had talked about the remarkable scientific research which shows exercise, healthy eating, and community support is powerful medicine that heals body, mind, heart and soul. Our program is especially effective in this regard; it is designed to not only transform the body, but to help uplift the whole person. That’s because our program is positive, encouraging, unconditionally accepting, fun, practical, and empowered by faith in the God-given abilities that every person has within them to change–to heal–to transform their bodies and lives. It is a program that is not based on theory, but scientific fact. For these reasons and an intuitive hunch on Charles’ part, George was introduced to our Transformation Center.

Tremendous Community Support Made the Difference

I remember the first day George came in for a visit and his first workout. I could tell George had the inner strength to do this and do it right. After all, he had already survived a very serious and life-threatening disease–this, in comparison, was just another mountain to climb. That first day, I got a photo with him and posted it on Facebook page. I said to my friends and readers that George could do this but he was going to need a lot of support and encouragement. I asked for their help. The response was over whelming–thousands of people from all over the world reached out to help lift George up.

Back in those beginning weeks, and still today, I am convinced that George’s success has had a lot to do with all those powerful prayers and positive intentions from people like YOU. I have been around long enough in life to see and believe in things like that. It makes a difference in ways our present day science can’t really understand.

Looking back now, I am SO happy that I followed my intuition and video-taped George’s first few days in the Center including his first workouts, weigh in, as well as the initial discussions we had about what it was going to take for him to make this incredible breakthrough in his life. George promised he would give it his all and not give up. And that is exactly what he did. The key for George has been his CONSISTENCY. His change didn’t happen overnight, but then again he didn’t gain the weight over night either.

A Simple, Smart Plan, Followed to the T = BIG RESULTS

George attended our 3-day Transformation Camp last summer, and since he lives here in Colorado, he has been coming here to the Center, giving the best effort he can every week. He works out for 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week (following my 5-25 interval intensity method). He eats 3 healthy meals from my Eating for Life book along with 3 Right Light Nutrition Shakes (for extra protein and vitamins) each day. He planned his meals ahead of time and followed his plan day after day. He scheduled his workout times for the week ahead and all but one time, he was here exactly when he said he would be.

4558Now, 15 months after he began, George is 144 lbs lighter and so much happier and healthier that his before photo from last summer has become virtually unrecognizable to me today. He truly left that person in his before photo in the past. Each day, when I see George here at the Center, I see a healthy, authentic, smart, caring, outgoing, fun and strong young man. That is who he was all along I think.

Your God-given Power and Ability to Change

True transformation is said to be both an ending and a beginning–a death and rebirth. It means that old ways of thinking, old ways of seeing yourself, old habits, old limiting beliefs… all that must go… that old and oftentimes unhealthy mindset must die to make room for the birth and growth of a renewed mind. A mind that has faith in God-given abilities and strengths that promise us all that WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE, and no event, no person (not even ourselves!), can ever take that away. I’ve discovered that it sometimes takes significant adversity to break open those powerful and transformative abilities. They are always there though… always.

In George’s case, I can clearly see that his humble confidence, his great inner strength, his grateful and joyful approach to life… it’s here now because of the pain and suffering of his past. Let me say that again: George’s transformation is so incredible because of the adversity he has faced, not in spite of it.

Lesson: Your biggest obstacle at this time may turn out to be your greatest blessing a year from now. George is proof.

It’s been an Honor and Privilege to Help George Transform

Yes, in all my 20+ years of helping people transform their bodies and lives, this experience has inspired beyond compare. What an honor and blessing it has been to be a part of this incredible young man’s rebirth. I am so proud of George and even though he has accomplished so much this past year, I know full well that THIS is JUST THE BEGINNING for him.

Go George go – I, and thousands of your new friends reading this from around the world are with you in spirit and behind you all the way!

Are You Getting off Track? Three Warning Signs…

Transformation is a continual path of rich and rewarding personal growth that leads to greater physical health and mental clarity. Or at least it has the potential to be. The key is to keep on doing what’s working and to steer clear of common obstacles and roadblocks in the process.

Knowing which pitfalls to be on the lookout for can save you a whole lot of time and trouble; it can also help you prevent a slip, a slide or a complete relapse back into your “before” condition. With that in mind, let me tell you about three of the most common signs that there’s transformation trouble ahead.

Warning Sign #1: You’ve Found a New Comfort Zone

The motivation to transform is high when you’re hanging on by a thread. For example, a drowning man makes all kinds of promises to God that he will right his ways and change his life. But once his feet are firmly back on the ground, his motivation to do the work necessary to change instantly becomes very low. He is comfortable again.

All too often this happens in the transformation process. When someone has a personal health scare or reaches a moral rock bottom, their willingness to commit themselves to the transformation process is high. Their compliance is strong. They’re excellent students and they get great results. Their results can be so good, in fact, that their motivation to keep on growing all but dissolves. And they find a new comfort zone, which leads to transformation trouble.

It’s imperative we understand that every comfort zone becomes a “comfort trap” eventually. Any place that we can hide out and indulge in excessive amounts of so-called pleasure will become dangerous as it fosters apathy addiction, as well as removes us from the natural flow of evolutionary pressure. The key is becoming more comfortable with continual change and less comfortable with staying the same. And that is so important in our transformation process. But, unfortunately, it’s something that we can easily overlook.

To keep moving forward, what I teach is to continually accept new challenges and invite positive pressure into your life. This works most every time. Challenges like transforming your life’s greatest adversity from tragedy to triumph, to overcome an addiction, or even train for and complete a marathon can really keep us on our toes mentally and emotionally. Embracing challenges keeps us in the dynamic flow of life, and it also keeps us from getting stuck or resisting the Divine Will. It also helps us to become more comfortable and excited about life while we’re in the process of change.

What challenge have you embraced in your life that is giving you positive pressure to move forward today? If something specific doesn’t come to mind right away, you may very well be headed for transformation trouble. You can course correct now by accepting a challenge which invokes the power of positive pressure and keeps you from settling into a new comfort zone.

Warning Sign #2: You Have No Specific, Inspiring Goals

When we set specific and inspiring goals with a timeline and deadline, we discover that this immediately focuses our energy and improves our clarity. And, in turn, this increases our motivation and propels us into action, doing the work that needs to be done to arrive at our predetermined destination.

The ability to set meaningful, energizing goals is something that we should all learn by the sixth grade. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people never become proficient at this essential skill for making your life work; and as a result, far too many folks never get the opportunity to discover even a fraction of their true potential. Like boats without a rudder, people with no specific and inspiring goals drift through life.

Meaningful and inspiring goals give our lives direction. And since we can follow so many different routes in life today, selecting a goal is literally among the most important decisions that we’ll ever make.

With transformation, we aspire to set goals which make our own lives healthier and happier, and which also make a difference in the lives of others. When we do this, we’re constantly growing, learning and bettering ourselves, and we’re also improving the world around us by being the change.

It’s really remarkable the way this works, time and time again. When we decide what we truly want out of all the possible things we could choose, and we focus on that objective each day, it is as if we invoke a creative force beyond our abilities. We don’t know exactly how it works, but most every person who absolutely commits themselves to achieving meaningful goals can give personal testimony to the power of its effects.

Probably the only thing that I find more stunning than the power of setting meaningful and inspiring goals is how often people overlook this vitally important practice. Thousands of people who’ve completed the 18-week Transformation, and over a million people who have done the Body-for-LIFE Challenge over the past decade, have all had a direct, firsthand experience with how effective this relatively simple practice is; yet, as soon as they achieve their initial goals, many people don’t set new ones. And right there, their progress begins to end.

So what are your meaningful and inspiring transformation goals right now? They should be specific, measurable, with a firm timeline and deadline. And they should give you a feeling of excitement and enthusiasm when you envision yourself achieving them. If you can’t bring your specific goals to mind right away, that’s a sign your transformation is headed for trouble, or perhaps you’re already in it. You can course correct now by becoming clear about your goals and committing to them.

Warning Sign #3: You’ve Strayed from the Group

Among my favorite television programs are those gorgeous HD shows on Discovery which are basically chronicles of natural life. They’re always filled with inspiring beauty and occasionally a life lesson or two. For example, watching the migrating herds of gazelle crossing the Serengeti, there’s always one that strays from the group and ends up in trouble.

For us, being connected to community and not straying away is also a good idea. Especially a community like ours where pretty much everyone holds the intention of making healthy changes in their lives which make a difference in the lives of others. The strength of a group of people who hold a similar intention cannot be underestimated. There’s the advantage of being able to give and receive support and encouragement. There’s the added benefit of accountability and camaraderie. And there’s the power of the unconditional group support. The advantages of this type of fellowship have been well known for hundreds, even thousands of years; and now, even modern science is verifying the positive effects.

Remember the importance of “right environments” and realize that people are a very big part of that. We become what we surround ourselves with, to a very significant extent; and without healthy, open, honest and transforming people in our lives, it’s hard to achieve our goals. Yet the opposite is also true – we do well at making challenging changes in our lives when we’re connected to others who are making challenging changes in theirs.

Whether your goals include losing weight, overcoming addiction, working through a bout of depression, or reaching a new personal best, connecting with a supportive, positive, unconditional community where others are seeking the same or similar victories is essential. More and more we’re realizing that significant and meaningful transformation in our lives is something that is hard to achieve on our own. We need help from others to succeed, and we also need the opportunity to help others succeed. Yet sometimes we behave as if that weren’t so. And we stray from the community and try to go it alone. There again is a sign of transformation trouble.

Conclusion

Make no mistake, in our heart of hearts we all want to experience continual growth and betterment of ourselves and our lives. Transformation is an ongoing process that can allow us to move forward in that direction. It’s a lifelong journey that can help us continually experience better physical and mental fitness. However, it only works if we work it. As soon as we take our eye off the ball and move our attention and focus elsewhere (deliberately or accidentally), our growth comes to a standstill, or more accurately put, it begins to regress.

And so with this reminder to be on the lookout for transformation trouble before it goes unnoticed for too long, we’ve got the opportunity to bring our awareness back to the right place. You don’t have to wait until you fall back to your before condition to realize that you’ve gone off course; you can begin to recognize that right here and now. Course correction and being on the lookout for trouble ahead is very much a part of becoming a successful, long-term transformer. As you develop mastery in this skillset, you’ll find your results are more consistent, sustainable, inspiring and enjoyable. =)

How the Power of Positive Pressure can Transform You!

CK TO SM

My observation is this: Most people in America have been conditioned (that means someone or some system has taught them) to believe they should “coast” through life as much as possible — they should avoid “pressure situations” and gravitate towards circumstances where no one is demanding anything from them. This is not good. It’s not good at all. You see, contrary to popular belief, deep down inside, you want pressure; in fact, you need pressure to succeed and to feel excited about life.

Consider the real lesson behind the ‘Superman’ archetype: Without pressure, he is just an ‘Average Joe’ (Clark Kent). But when an urgent challenge arises — when the pressure gets high enough and something important is on the line — Clark Kent transforms from an ordinary person to a super man.

Of course, the symbolic meaning is universal — we all have the ability to transform from ordinary to extraordinary and yes, become ‘super.’ But you’ll never know, unless you start moving forward and confronting and accepting the urgent situations in your life — the ones that have the power to ignite your hidden and incredible capabilities.

For many people, getting their health back on track — losing the fat, lowering the blood pressure, renewing their heart, and building a strong body is a life or death situation. It’s urgent. We can deny it and avoid it (which millions of Americans do each day), but that sure as heck doesn’t make it go away. You might think you don’t have the super-powers to completely change your body and life but listen to me… YOU DO!

The fact of the matter is, we are all capable of so much more than we might believe we are, but our ultimate potential is often smothered by what society teaches us — that pressure is a bad thing, that it hurts rather than helps our efforts to improve and become successful. Eventually, after years of conditioning, most people see pressure as an obstacle, not the powerful, motivating force it really is.

You see, the truth of the matter is that it’s through positive pressure that we evolve — that we grow.

Think about it: The fundamental principle of building a stronger body is the process of overcoming stress, or “resistance.” We force our muscles to work, and this effort in turn forces our muscles to adapt. If we put no pressure at all on those muscles, if we present them with no resistance whatsoever, what happens? They atrophy. They dissipate. They weaken.

The same equation applies to growth in all areas of our lives. It is only through the right amount of pressure, that we move beyond the level of mere existence or “comfort.”

Over the years, I’ve helped many thousands of people transform by motivating them to accept the difficult challenges of life in order to harness the power of positive pressure. They did it, and I’m telling you again, you can do it too!
