40 days to a fitter, healthier, stronger body? Yes, please.

Ideal Gift Candidate?

  • Anyone who is looking for a weight loss program that combines diet and exercise.
  • People who are willing to push themselves hard, and sweat quite a bit.
  • People who are having a hard time losing weight from a particular part of the body (thighs, belly, tush)

What is it?

It's an online diet and exercise program that combines weekly meal plans designed for specific body types (Apples, Pears, Athletes & Babyfaces) with 20 tough workouts that are scalable to three levels of fitness: beginning, intermediate and advanced. All workouts, meal plans and tips are sent via email.
