Dawn is not only professional, but very warm-hearted and inviting.  She greets clients with a smile and we received an excellent massage and priced very reasonably.  The salon is quaint and very relaxing.  Our overall experience was cherished and we definitely give her 5 stars.  You will be very pleased. 🙂

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client)For starters, I’ve never been a big person or massive body builder and I wasn’t the healthiest eater around.  Sure, I ate my veggies and all, but I enjoyed the not so healthy stuff more than I should have, especially “The Dew”.  I worked out occasionally, but nothing like I needed to.  I was definitely lazy and easily out of energy.  I developed the “mushroom cap” hanging over my pants, had to have some trousers taken out a little bigger, and was not happy with what I saw in the mirror.

Then I heard some coworkers talking about XBodyConcepts and the results they were getting.  I actually saw them losing weight and enjoy talking about their progress.  I mentioned my interest to Chad, who unbeknownst to me, was engaged to Dawn…. who would soon become my trainer. Chad invited me to the XBC Facebook group site.  I started reading the posts and following other people’s progress.  I was hooked, but wasn’t sure how to start.  I talked to my wife, Lea, about it at length.  It seems she wasn’t too happy with her own progress.  I talked to Chad several more times about the programs.  He would always end with, “Talk to Dawn, she’s the pro”.  Seeing how I was pending 2 major joint surgeries I was hesitant, but talked to Dawn anyway.  Dawn suggested I start a plan prior to surgery to get my body ready for the healing process and that sounded pretty good to me.

On 5-29-12, Lea and I made the decision to start XBC and see how it went.  Dawn was fast and sent us our individual plans on 6-1-12.  Lea and I both started the XBC XFAT(Lite), but our meal plans and workouts were different and focused on what we each wanted to achieve.  My goal was to get rid of the “love handles”, lose the fat and build some much needed muscle & tone.  When I started, I weighed 180 lbs (not the muscley lbs) with 17.5% body fat, a 36 ¾” waist, 41” chest, and 14” biceps.

Through the 6 weeks of my plan, I saw visible changes and felt changes in my energy.  So prior to my first surgery on 7-11-12, I had lost 15 lbs of fat, gained 10 lbs of lean muscle, decreased down to 15% body fat, lost 2 1/2″ inches from my waist, increased my chest to 42 ½”, increased my biceps to 15”, and increased my overall lean muscle mass.  I got excited to hit the gym and work out every day.  If I had to miss a workout for work or something else, my day was thrown off and I felt sluggish.

Now I’m not going to lie, keeping to the meal plan was hard.  I missed all the junk food and savory cooking that Dawn cut out of my everyday eating.  And at first, eating 6 times a day felt like way too much.  Every 3 hours I was like, “What, again???”.  But after the first week or so, my body actually started to crave the meals every time.  Did I stay totally committed to the plan?  I’d love to say yes, but I have snuck a piece of candy or a beer here and there.  Did I miss the junk food and greasy stuff?  Nope, not at all.  The clean eating made a difference and I was excited to see how I continued to progress.

After my ankle surgery, Dawn helped modify my workouts.  My cardio went from legs to the arm cycle.  This was different, but still very effective.  Getting through the gym on crutches was a feat, but like I said… I needed to get to the gym.  Doing this helped to keep the gains I had achieved and the fat loss I didn’t want back.

My next surgery, which was on the elbow on 8-15-12, has shut me down from the gym for the next 6 weeks.  This was a total bummer, but I knew it was coming.  The sad part, my mass decreased and I dropped in weight to about 160 lbs.  The good part, using the meal plan designed by Dawn is helping me keep the fat off, even without being able to work out.  I have about 4 more weeks to go, but I am totally stoked to get back in the gym and get the muscles going.  I’m sure Dawn is already planning my new plan to get me back on track and ready to go.

Now here’s the kicker…. I’m 42 years old and I’ve had 3 shoulder surgeries, 3 knee surgeries, 1 hernia surgery, 1 ankle surgery, 2 elbow surgeries, 2 shattered elbows, 2 broken ankles, 1 fractured wrist, several broken fingers, and have 2 cracked lower vertebrae …… and I’m still hitting the gym!  No pain meds, no “hey I need pot for pain”, and no whining on why I can’t workout.  With the meal plan and workout regiment designed by Dawn, I’ve achieved more physical fitness than I ever have!

As for Lea’s plan, she looks and feels amazing.  I think she’s even more addicted to the gym than I am.  But that’s her story to tell.  Thanks Dawn for helping us change our lives and making a difference in our appearance and overall health.  Oh yeah…. BAM!

Dawn is terrific and the micro diamond abrasion has been great! My skin has never felt better!

(XFAT (Lite) / XFAT Client) – XFATLTE is formatted for the perfect lifestyle change.  XFATLTE took me from a starting weight of 223 lbs and a body fat percentage of 27%, to a weight of 200 lbs. and a body fat percentage of 22% in eight weeks.   After completing the XFATLTE program, I started on the XFAT program.  On the XFAT program I have dropped my weight from 200 lbs to 188 lbs, and my body fat percentage has dropped from 22% to 17.7%, and I still have a few weeks to go before completing the XFAT plan.  So far I have lost a total of 35 lbs while gaining lean muscle mass and have dropped my body fat percentage nearly 10%.  My waist size has decreased from 43.5” to 35” a loss of 8.5”!!!

There are no extreme diets or workouts that tend to de-motivate people after a month or two. XFATLTE and XFAT are easy to follow and proven effective for extreme fat burning and muscle building.  The key to success is simple consistency.  This has been by far the most effective fat loss and strength building plan I have ever encountered.

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client)Hi my name is Angelique and I am 47 years old.  I have 6 children.  Four I birthed and two step.  I work full time and have a very busy life.  I am the person that would lose and gain, lose and gain.  I have done EVERY diet in the past, including prescribed diet pills, but the weight ALWAYS came back.  Then I got this brilliant idea that I would gain so much weight so I could qualify for the lap band surgery.  So I gave myself permission to eat unhealthy, in large quantities and drink to achieve this goal.  Well the process would take about a year before I could get it so I finally realized this was stupid!  I was tired of being fat and exhausted and purchasing bigger clothes.  I was at 185lbs, 5.2 inch tall and over 40% body fat.  I was tired of walking by the really cute clothing stores knowing I could never fit in any of them.  And worst of all I felt like such a failure to my children.  I could see their concern at how heavy I was getting.  But bless their hearts and my husband’s heart, they never said anything.

On March 13th, I was roller skating with my family and fell when a small child fell in front of me.  Needless to say I had torn my tendon off of my butt bone and it would require surgery to reattach.  (I just had a surgery 6 months prior to this for a hysterectomy and endometriosis)  I was lying in bed feeling defeated when I came across the Xbodyconcepts that my friend Chad Morris posted on Facebook.  I took a look at it and decided that day that this was my way out of this VERY unhealthy lifestyle.  I had my surgery and while I was in recovery, I purchased the XFAT LITE program.   Two weeks after my hamstring was reattached, I hit the gym with a mission.   The first two weeks I could not even walk up the stairs without the assistance of my husband.  I could not use my legs at all for the first 6 weeks and that was really frustrating!  I focused on my upper body and little by little we tried using the legs.

I had every excuse not to go to the gym but I went every day.  I started with 5 lb. weights and felt totally ridiculous. I sometimes felt like I wasn’t worthy of working out in the area where the really fit people were.  I just kept my head phones on, ignored the feelings and held my head high and said damn it, I deserve to be here!  I emailed Dawn multiple times each day asking her question after question, and sometimes doubting her.  There were days I was feeling higher than a kite and then there were days, I cried.  There were days I felt like I could become a body builder and days I told Dawn it just wasn’t working.  I had days where I pushed too hard and hurt myself which set me back a couple of weeks,  but I always looked for alternatives and worked what parts I could, really hard.  Finally about week 7, I saw some results and said, well maybe Dawn knows what she is talking about……lol.  This began to bring me out of my doubting funk.

Pushing through the changes was very hard for me.  I was losing friends that I went out and drank with and I stopped getting invited to parties because my focus was to get healthy.  This hurt me and at first and I was really frustrated and angry.  I told Dawn I felt like I was sacrificing too much but she would always set me straight.  She would tell me what was important and that this was a life style change and I had a choice.  One was to take care of me or continue the old life.  So I stopped putting myself in bad situations and started making better choices.   When I felt strong enough to attend parties or BBQ’s, I would tell people no thanks to the drinks or bad food and just tell them I was in training.  This sounded better and it didn’t offend people and it kept me more positive about what I was doing.  Eventually it did get easier.  I began putting myself first and then everything else came second.  I would start planning my day around my workouts not the other way around.  I stopped feeling guilty for telling people sorry I can’t make it, or I can’t help you, I am going to the gym.  I began creating healthy positive treats for myself like going out and lying by the pool for 30-45 minutes after my workout, reading a good book or buying a smaller outfit.

After 12 weeks the results were great!  I went from a size 16 to a 10!  I lost 22 lbs and dropped my body fat from 40% to 31.5%.  I feel so much better!  I hear all the time, “You look so good.”  My friends ask me what I am doing and I always refer them to Xbodyconcepts.  I tell them it’s all about your commitment, clean eating and working out.  There is no secret pill, no new diet that will do it.

Now I crave going to the gym.  When I started I could barely push 5 lbs. weights or walk up the stairs and now I am using 30lb dumbbells.  I can now squat and do leg curls.  I feel so strong now and I love when I push myself to a new weight each week.  It makes me want more.  I am excited to take on my next 12 weeks and start the XFAT program with even more amazing results!  My new goal is to enter a body competition by age 50 which is only 1 ½ years away.

If you are tired of being overweight, and or have physical issues, trust Dawn and Xbodyconcepts.  The program works and Dawn will help you every step of the way!

Dawn is wonderful. I have been going to her for over 1 1/2 years for my brazillian wax and eybrow wax. She does a great job and is very thorough. Also, she is very easy to schedule with. Even, if I’ve needed to change an appointment her availability is great and she always works with me to make the timing work.  I give Dawn two thumbs up!

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT Client) – I had heard people at my work raving about the results they were getting on a customized workout and nutrition plan they had been following.  I had some weight to lose and the chatter peaked my interest and curiosity.  One day I asked what these people were doing and how they were getting such amazing results.  I was put in contact with Dawn at XBodyConcepts and the rest is history.  Dawn customized the XFAT workout and nutrition plan to make sure I would attain my goals and to make sure the plan would work with my hectic schedule.  When I began the XFAT plan I weighed in at 239.8 lbs with a 43.5 inch waist.  After running the twelve week program, my weight dropped to 212 lbs and my waist is now 38 inches.  That’s a loss of 27 lbs and 5.5 inches lost around the middle! 

Dawn’s XBodyConcepts plan taught me the correct way to eat and provided structure to my nutrition and especially my workout sessions, which I desperately needed.  I never thought eating more and more often would actually help me lose weight.  It goes against common sense, which is one reason most people never achieve great results.  The customized meal plan was very clear and concise and made it easy to follow and eat the right things.  The biggest thing I learned about my diet is being PREPARED everyday for EVERY meal is the key to success.  If I didn’t prepare ahead of time and forgot a meal, I felt like I was starving.  Those were the times when I was tempted to cheat and eat whatever was available.  So my advice to newcomers is to always prepare your meals ahead of time (which Dawn suggests).  The weekends were the hardest time for me, but you just have to stick to it.  In the grand scheme of things, this plan is not asking a lot of you in terms of the big picture.  I can do anything for twelve weeks and quickly this became routine and I actually enjoyed all of the good foods I was eating and actually craved them!  After approximately 2-3 weeks family, friends and co-workers began commenting to me about how much weight I had lost.  Not only was I starting to look good, I felt good too!  I have never obtained results anywhere close to these and plan to continue working with Dawn and XBodyConcepts so I can continue to improve my physique and my overall health and wellness!  XFAT2 here I come!  I am thrilled, thanks again for everything Dawn!

Read Full Testimonial – (XLRG / XFAT Client)I contacted XBodyConcepts because I wanted results!  I had friends who had gotten amazing results from the XbodyConcepts fitness plans and I wanted to have the same success.  I have been lifting weights for approximately thirteen years and have always been a hard-gainer with a fast metabolism.  My goal was to finally put on muscle mass.

I contacted Dawn at XBodyConcepts and she devised a customized weightlifting and meal plan that met my needs.  Dawn created a meal plan of foods that I really liked and that were easy to eat and prepare.  At the end of twelve weeks on the XLRG Mass Plan I gained 18 pounds (started at 184lbs and ended at 202lbs) of lean muscle mass and maintained virtually the same body-fat.  Not only did I put on muscle mass my strength went up a ton!  The fact that I had such trouble putting on weight and then gained 18 pounds in 12 weeks with huge strength gains is amazing to me.  XBodyConcepts gave me the plan and I did the work.  Together we got the results!

I will now be starting the XFAT program to lean out for summer.  I can not wait to see what kind of results I get from the XFAT plan.  I am sure they will be nothing short of amazing.  Thank you very much Dawn and XBodyConcepts!

My appointments with Dawn are something I look forward to every couple of months.  I know I will always receive a great facial as well as an amazing neck & shoulder massage, but Dawn also takes time to make sure her clients feel comfortable and relaxed ensuring an enjoyable experience during every visit.  Dawn is very professional, knowledgeable and passionate about her work.  She is genuinely concerned about helping find the right skin care regimen for me and each of her clients.  Every facial is always customized and tailored to my skin’s needs. I most commonly visit Esthetics by Dawn for Facials w/ultrasonic microdermabrasion and I am extremely happy with the results. I always leave with amazing feeling skin and Dawn’s advice on how to maintain healthy & radiant looking skin between visits.  I have been a client of Dawn’s for quite a few years and highly recommend her services.  Soothing music, calming aroma and a friendly face are just a few added bonuses to the wonderful services provided by Dawn.

Dawn is doing a series of lightening/brightening facials for me for my wedding and I could not be more excited. I have had many facials done before and they always feel like a glorified face wash but with her I can feel her getting things done (blackheads especially). She is a pure joy and does not disappoint.

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(LITE) / XFAT Client) – My journey with XBodyConcepts began 7 months after having my second baby boy, and what a journey it has been!  I have always been a gym junky, half marathon runner, sprint triathlon competitor, and over-all active person.  Even after years and years of trying different diet plans and work out routines, I never quite felt like my body reflected all my hard work, that is, until I signed up with XBodyConcepts!  Within the first two weeks of my XFAT Lite plan I went from 110.8 pounds to 105.6 pounds, keep in mind I am 5’1” tall.  Wow was I pleased, and that was just the beginning.  I started the XFAT program 4 weeks later and watched my body change from skinny to lean and fit!  About 6 weeks into the XFATprogram my friends and family started to notice the change in my appearance and it was then that all my hard work was really paying off!  I dropped my weight down to an incredible 104.2 lbs.  I hadn’t seen a number that low since I was a junior in high school, but funny enough I look better now than I did then!  Now I have a toned body, not just a skinny number on a scale. I finished this journey losing over 6 lbs and dropping my body fat %.

I must admit the months were hard and I wasn’t always a perfect client when it came to eating but I never missed a workout!  Who knows the results I would have seen if I stuck 100% with the diet plan.  But I couldn’t be happier today!  I will continue with my clean eating and am now enjoying another XBodyConcepts program!  XBodyConcepts has changed the way I eat, sleep, drink, and live, both in and out of the gym.  Thank you to Chad and Dawn for their continued support and encouragement! I look forward to many years of being an XBodyConcepts team member!
