“ You got me started on this journey almost a year ago. Something you said a year ago really sunk in with me about seeing guys in the gym on the treadmill and getting nowhere. I was killing myself with 30 minute sessions twice per day on the treadmill and getting NOWHERE! I have lost 30 pounds, down to %22 body fat and GOT OFF INSULIN"
“Followed your advise , lost 30 lb and got back 32 in waist and can run 8 min mile no sweat after three years of training. Basically cannot believe what I see in the mirror. All pretty simple: run sprints, do a lot of yoga and resistance training. Look and perform better at 55 than at 40."
Time is your most precious commodity so don't waste it on a workout that won't get you the result you're looking for. You need to:
You deserve to live an awesome life and create great memories with your kids!
You shouldn't miss out on the fun because you're too tired and weak.
Getting healthy and fit again after a few decades of slow decline is hard work. No two ways around it. You're going to need a consistent, quality effort over time. So ask yourself these questions first to see if you're ready:
Do you have the mental toughness, the grit or stick-to-it-ness to push yourself through the inevitable hard spots when life intervenes?
Do you know what you're doing? Are you following a proven plan, backed by science that will rebuild your lost muscle mass?
Expect roadblocks that attempt to derail you. Expect it to take some time and effort. Will you stick to the plan long enough to see results
First, set the scene in your mind. You have to want it and visualize it. Can you see yourself, healthy and strong, out doing fun stuff with the kids or spouse?
To get there, you must do two things first:
Get Well. Heal yourself. Make it possible to get super results from your training effort. Most guys don't do this and it's a why their plans fall short.
Get strong. Re-build lost muscle mass. Start a resistance training program that reverses sarcopenia and motivates you to keep going.
Getting well and getting strong are the base of your health triangle. You have to work on them simultaneously to maximize your gains in the shortest amount of time.
The Spartan Method builds a solid foundation to your health triangle.
“I liked the way the coaching program broke the complex down to simple, actionable advice. Mark's approach makes you realize what's attainable with a bit of planning and commitment. I lost 25 lbs pretty quickly."
“Big fan Mark. Started w/your body weight workout in May and have for the last several weeks been doing a version of your dumbbell cycle workout. I've gone from 198 to 180 pounds and can really see the difference! "
