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!

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

Mark Bell is one of the worlds strongest men and an incredible powerlifting and muscle building coach. Tens of thousands of fitness and muscle enthusiasts listen to his podcast interviews and have benefited from following his advice. Mark starred in a relatively famous documentary film produced by his brother Chris called “Bigger, Stronger, Faster” which was made in 2008, Mark, age 38, a father from Sacramento, grew up reading Bill Phillips’ books and participated in one of the first Body-for-LIFE Challenges; an experience which he says changed the course of his life.

Recently, Bill Phillips traveled to workout with Mark at his ‘Super Training Center’ in California and while he was there, Bill was a guest on Mark Bell’s Power Cast Interview Series. The Interview is extensive, unedited, uncensored, and goes on for about 90 minutes. IF you are not easily offended by ‘R-rated language’ and IF you’re interested in an honest conversation about the downside of the bodybuilding culture as well as how to keep a balanced and healthy perspective toward fitness and muscle building, than you may very well learn a lot from this podcast. You might also have some pretty hearty laughs along the way.

You can watch the video interview by clicking on the screen (or link) below. If you have only known Bill’s work for the last few years, you’ll see a knowledgeable and different side of him as he tells the story of how he got started as a teenage Mr. America competitor and went on to become the famous author of Body-for-LIFE many years later.

Hope you enjoy the interview… IF you decide the uncensored format is right for you.

———–

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.

The only way to truly fail is to quit trying

I was at a book signing at a Barnes & Noble store in Wichita, Kansas. A healthy 34-year old woman named Kimberly introduced herself. Somewhat sullen, she asked if I could write some encouraging words in her book, explaining that she’s tried several times to complete my 12-week Program but had “failed” each time. “Failed?” I replied. “You look wonderful!” She explained that through her efforts she had lost 15 lbs. of bodyfat and increased her muscle definition and energy. But again she explained that she had “failed” because each time she tried to complete the 12-week Program, something would come up and she would fall off track. What I explained to Kimberly, and what I want to share with you, is that as long as you keep trying, you will never fail. The only way to fail is to quit trying. Setbacks offer opportunities to learn and grow and improve. And I need you to see PROGRESS as SUCCESS. Focus on what you have achieved not on what you haven’t. Give yourself credit where credit is due — celebrate any and all progress and build momentum from each little step forward. Keep your chin up and have faith in yourself and my program. You can and WILL succeed as long as you keep trying… that much I can promise you! ~Bill Phillips

Fitness Supplement Q & A

Q: I have a question for Bill — I used your EAS supplements and got great results when I was in my 20’s. Now I am 40 and need to lose about 35 lbs of bodyfat while I build my muscles back up. I wonder what supplements you are using these days. What can you tell me about your Right protein shakes, Strongevity Rx, and your GH10x supplements? Should I start with one of these or all of these? What do you suggest?

A: What I recommend is that people approach supplementation in this order: First, make sure that you’re getting  the full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals every day. Also, make sure that your body has an ample supply of the high quality protein it needs to recover from your workouts. I get a lot of my protein and vitamins from meal replacement nutrition shakes. 24 years ago I introduced the nutrition shake MET-Rx to the fitness world and a few years later developed the EAS Myoplex line of meal replacements. Literally millions of athletes and fitness buffs have used these products to fuel their muscle performance. One of the great things about high quality nutrition shakes is that they are so rich with nutrients while still being low in calories. This makes them an ideal solution for people who want to get fit and strong while also losing unhealthy bodyfat at the same time. NewRightBTF-2_large Myoplex was a great product in its time but today we know even more about protein science and how to filter out the highest quality, most pure protein powders and this is what I use in my new RIGHT nutrition shake. You will not find this in MET-Rx or Myoplex. Right Complete Protein Shakes are built on state of the art nutrition science — up to date for the year 2015. Some of my previous formulas at EAS have not increased in quality over the years and the formulas have changed possibly in the opposite direction.  I always recommend starting with RIGHT Complete Protein Shakes to make sure that you’ve got your essential nutrients covered.

STRONGEVITY RxThe next level of supplementation would be adding STRONGEVITY Rx to your workouts and healthy meal plan. This breakthrough formula includes the scientifically proven effective supplement micronized creatine monohydrate, ubiquinol, and ubiquinone forms for CoQ10 (which medical research has shown works synergistically and additively with creatine), and the biologically active form of Vitamin D3, called Cholecalciferol. These are three key nutrients that when taken together will increase muscle strength, mental energy, and improve recovery time. STRONGEVITY Rx is a supplement that not only helps you get better results faster from your workouts but it is also a longevity formula – studies show that these nutrients help improve both quality and quantity of life and so I especially recommend STRONGEVITY Rx to people over 40 who are working out and transforming their health.

GH10XLevel 3 supplementation is the next step up. This is only something for people who are already working out consistently, eating healthy, getting their protein and vitamins each day, and supplementing with the cellular energy nutrients in STRONGEVITY Rx. GH10x is that next tier product which helps our health and fitness through a different pathway. Gh10x can increase our body’s nitric oxide levels which increase blood flow to muscles and therefore help more nutrients and oxygen be delivered to hardworking cells. Gh10x also helps support the natural growth hormone response we get when we workout following a high intensity interval method. Natural Growth Hormone plays a key role in helping us lose fat and build muscle, and beyond age 40 our natural levels decline significantly. Anything we can do to boost them back up naturally can give us big benefits. Unlike synthetic growth hormone injections, natural GH boosters have no side effects and are much less expensive than the pharmaceutical products. Another benefit of GH10x is that is also contains key amino acids that help volumize muscle cells which helps to give the body that firm and toned look and feel.

In summary, first make sure you are working out hard and consistently. Next, eat healthy, balanced meals. Then, add the Right Complete protein nutrition shakes. After that, you can get better results faster from your workouts by adding in Strongevity Rx. Once you feel that you have all those basis covered, then consider GH10x to take it up a notch. ++ To learn more about Bill Phillips Fitness Supplements visit www.EatingRight.com

A New Look at Bill Phillips’ Lower Body Workout

Lifting free-weight dumbbells is an incredibly effective and efficient way to work the major muscles of your body. The lower body workout I teach at my Transformation Center is all done with dumbbells. The exercises which make up this routine blast the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves. When we use the proper form it also strengthens the core, improves flexibility and builds stabilizer muscles which support the knees, ankles, and hips. This lower body workout includes three variations of squats — it is absolutely the best exercise for lower body work and it also is incredibly good for calorie burning and cardiovascular health improvements. This workout is the exact approach that I have followed to rebuild my leg muscles after a brutal injury I suffered a few years ago. This workout works and it’s simple (not easy) to do.

I used this Lower Body Workout to rebuild my leg muscles, at age 50, after an injury which ruptured the quadriceps tendons on both legs.

I used this Lower Body Workout to rebuild my leg muscles, at age 50, after an injury which ruptured the quadriceps tendons on both legs.

With this ‘5-25 Intense Interval Strength Training’ workout I can stick with the same weight for all 5 sets (as opposed to ‘pyramiding’ or increasing weight for each set as we did with Body-for-LIFE). The way 5-25 is designed we reach ‘progressive resistance overload’ (needed for positive muscle adaptations) through fatiguing the muscles more with each set. By your 5th set of 10 reps for each muscle group your muscles will be thoroughly cooked, and that is good!

Lower Body Workout

1. Dumbbell Squats — 10 Reps 2. Straight-Leg Deadlift — 10 Reps 3. Dumbbell Sumo Squats — 10 Reps 4. Standing Dumbbell Calf Raises — 10 Reps 5. Narrow Stance Dumbbell Front Squat — 10 Reps Complete all 5 exercises, 10 reps of each, with no rest between. After you’ve completed all 5 exercises, rest 2 minutes and then repeat the cycle. Aim for the completion of 5 times through the cycle in approximately 25 minutes. ++This workout can be done with a number of different exercise combinations. For example: 10 reps of barbell squats, followed by 10 reps on the leg extension machine, 10 reps of leg curls, 10 seated calf raises,  and 10 reps on the leg press machine. There are many different combinations we can put together to get an excellent high intensity strength training workout for the lower body. ++Never sacrifice good form to lift more weight. Doing the exercises with proper form and lifting the weights slowly and under control is even more important for those of us over 40. The great results from working out consistently come over time. Injuries are setbacks that throw us off track. Good form is one of the keys to keeping your exercise program going and producing great results. lbwo

Dumbbell SquatsphotocatSquatJan-7

Starting Position: Hold two dumbbells at your sides, with your palms facing in. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. The Exercise: While keeping your chin up, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Breathe out on exertion. Take your time — go lower and slower to fully work the leg muscles.

Straight-Leg Deadlift

DeadliftFinalFinal12-18 Starting Position: Stand up straight, with your feet shoulder width apart and a dumbbell in each hand, your palms facing towards the front of your legs. This is a terrific exercise for the hamstrings, and it helps strengthen the lower back. The Exercise: Bend forward at your hips, and slowly lower the dumbbells in front of you, keeping the weights very close to your legs, until the weights almost tough the floor. Then, while concentrating on the muscles in the back of your legs, raise your upper body and the weights to the starting position. Roll your shoulders back, keep your chin up, take a deep breath and then repeat the exercise.

Dumbbell Sumo Squat

SumoFinal Starting Position: Hold a single dumbbell or ‘kettle bell’ in front of you. Your feet should be pointed out diagonally at about a 45 degree angle. Stand with your feet double shoulder width apart. The Exercise: While keeping your shoulders, back, and head upright, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout this exercise.

Standing Dumbbell Calf Raises

photocatFinalCalfRaise12-18 Starting Position: Start by holding a dumbbell in each hand, with your palms facing the sides of your hips. Stand with your feet half shoulder width apart. Keep your feet parallel with each other. The Exercise: Keeping your legs straight, raise up on the ball of your feet. When you get to the top hold it for a count of one, then slowly lower to the starting position.

Narrow Stance Dumbbell Front Squat

finalNarrowSquatJan-7 Starting Position: Hold two dumbbells at your sides, with your palms facing in. Stand with your feet half shoulder width apart. The narrow stance will make the quadriceps muscle groups work even harder than regular squats. The Exercise: While keeping your shoulders, back, and head upright, bend your legs at the knees and lower your hips until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Then, pushing from your heels, lift yourself back up to the starting position. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout this exercise. Breathe out on exertion.

Air-Force Veteran, Craig Johnson, is 44 lbs Lighter, Stronger, and Pain Free

Craig Johnson

Craig Johnson, age 48, an Air-Force Veteran (he served 23 years) from Washington, attended Transformation Camp at our Center in Colorado and has gone on to lose 44 lbs of bodyfat while gaining strength, renewing his health, and energizing his life. He also achieved his goal we set at Camp and he got his enrollment fee of $1,495 paid back to him in full! Congratulations Craig! You are inspiring others with your leadership example and success! ~Bill Phillips
——————–

From Craig Johnson: “Friends and family have asked about the benefits of going to the Transformation Camp in person and my short answer is that it is LIFE CHANGING! Since the beginning of the year I have lost 44 lbs of bodyfat and 7 inches from my waist. My knee is finally pain free which has allowed me to pursue my favorite activity of golfing again and I just finished my first 21 mile bike event and still had energy to burn!

“You can’t help but to be inspired to immediate action after attending Bill Phillips’ honest holistic approach to health and fitness and his enthusiasm for transforming your life. Bill emphasized “progress not perfection” which later became my mantra and changed how I would approach a healthier lifestyle that was not a ‘diet.’ Bill also took the time to address the important facts against the many myths of health and fitness that gave me the straightforward information I needed. Then, once I was armed with the knowledge, tools, and support provided at camp I began my own journey towards health and progress that I enjoy today.

“So, if you are sitting on the couch like I was and reading about Bill’s Transformation Camps and wondering can this really be worth the investment and effort, let me assure you it IS worth it ten times over! Bill’s Transformation Camp will be the best gift you could ever give to yourself.”
