Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT Lite) Client – I was sick of going to the gym and using only the cardio equipment and signing up for boot camp classes. I wanted something with more serious results. After talking to Dawn at XbodyConcepts and seeing her results I knew I wanted to do the XFATLTE program as soon as possible! I knew in order to do this I needed to be focused, set some serious but realistic goals, commit myself to the workouts and mostly stick with following the diet!!! After the first 3 weeks I noticed my body starting to change and seeing that I was gaining lean muscle. I am already starting to see the definition I want.

Having the specific meals plan tailored for me of what, how much and when to eat really keeps me on track. I don’t have to think about what to cook. I love it! I prepare all my next day meals the night before so there’s no excuses!!!!

It’s hard work!!! Be motivated, dedicated, committed and stay FOCUSED and you will have guaranteed results! Thanks Dawn for all your help, motivation and giving me the courage to get in there and lift those weights!!!

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client)I started the XBC XFAT(Lite) Fitness and Nutritional Plan approximately three months ago and I have noticed great results overall. Within a week, I felt better and I had much more energy. I used to feel a little lethargic and tired in the early mornings when I woke up for work. Within the first week, I had more energy and I stopped drinking the two cups of coffee I always seemed to need before heading out the door. That was the first noticeable change I had from the program. It took me a few weeks to adapt to the nutritional plan. Lucky for me, I work with several people who are also on XBC Fitness and Nutritional plans and it made it easier not having the daily routine of going out to lunch. I wasn’t used to eating a big breakfast or eating every two to three hours all day long, but after only one month I got into the routine. This was when I began seeing the weight loss and lean muscle changes. After the second month, I nearly reached my goal weight and conditioning level. My endurance on mountain bike rides also increased considerably.

I had a routine physical exam two months after being on the program and my doctor was surprised at my lowered triglyceride count, greatly improved cholesterol levels, and greatly improved blood sugar level. He was also surprised to see my 20 lb drop on the scale.  Prior to starting my XBC plan my doctor had planned on prescribing me medication to counteract some of the negative blood levels I was experiencing.  The great improvements I showed in my overall health as a result of my XBC plan resulted in my doctor not having to prescribe me any medication!  My doctor was fascinated by the improvements in my health!  I attribute my progress to Dawn’s help and guidance. I admit my implementation of the program was not completely consistent or strictly by the book by any means. I could have worked out more and not occasionally veered away from the nutritional plan on weekends. With that said, I have been able to implement the program into my life and maintain the weight loss and endurance I originally wanted from the program. Thanks Dawn!

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client) – I met Dawn and her XBODYCONCEPTS team online via Facebook. I saw her before and after pictures on Facebook and decided to inbox her. From then on, she has been a huge motivator for me. After many difficult years of dealing with Bulimia, abusing my body and still not liking what I saw….it was time. I began my road to recovery by concentrating on eating and being comfortable with it, this was hard for me. I also concentrated on exercising and learning proper form, I wanted to do it right. That all worked. I was seeing some change. But then after a few months of training, I noticed I was at a stand still. I kept in contact with Dawn quite frequently. I explained to her what I was feeling and seeing. She had an answer.

I began working with Dawn to begin my fitness journey. Dawn recommended that I begin with the XFAT(LITE) program for 6 weeks. Dawn explained to me, that through years of abusing my body, I had stalled my metabolism and it needed a kick-start. Dawn also informed me that while working to trick my body and kick-start my metabolism there would be a high probability that I might gain weight and body fat. Of course I was hesitant. I figured Dawn knew what she was talking about and if that did happen, it was going to be while I was eating healthy and working out. I joined Dawn’s XBODYCONCEPTS team on March 20, 2012. I joined weighing 148 pounds, 20.7% body fat, 117 pounds of lean mass.

I remained on the XFAT(LITE) program for 6 weeks. Now keep in mind, as part of Dawn’s strategy to kick-start my metabolism, I did no cardio during this time. Remember, the goal was to kick-start my metabolism. My results? Six weeks later I weighed 147 pounds, 16.9% body fat, 123 pounds of lean mass. I LOST A POUND, LOST BODYFAT AND GAINED 6 LBS OF MUSCLE! Yes…that deserves all caps. Both tests were done with the BODPOD, so they are accurate. Plus, my mirror says it’s accurate.

On May 1st, I decided to stay on board with the XBODYCONCEPTS team and started XFAT. I can’t wait to see what this does for me and this body. You really can’t go wrong by this program. It’s all right there, just follow. Plus, you get the most amazing team of motivators who all ‘get it’. I couldn’t thank Dawn and her team more. I have found a forever friend in XBODYCONCEPTS.

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT(Lite) Client)I have always been the skinny girl who could eat anything and never gain a pound.  I was active and played sports, but indulged in whatever food I wanted.  I had never been on a “diet” my entire life.  Five years ago, after some big life changes, I got back into running and trained hard for many races and ran my first half marathon.  I cross trained and included swimming and mountain biking in my daily routine.  I ate restrictively, but not necessarily healthy or balanced for a runner.  I had a love hate relationship with running.  I enjoyed the social aspect and the feeling of accomplishment, but dreaded training, the agony of race day, and always felt sick after the event.  It would take days to recover and many parts of my body ached and felt beat up.  It never got easier and progress was measured in minute miles and distance versus how I felt.

After some injuries and life’s demands I pulled back, stopped signing up for races and just restricted my food intake to maintain my weight.  I was tired all the time.  Sleep was maybe 4 hours a night, but never consecutive.  Happy hour was not just reserved for weekends and after awhile I started to see changes in my body shape and not positive ones.  I became the skinny fat girl! I saw Dawn’s transformation on Facebook and was in awe.  Such a beautiful women who now had a body that was staggeringly stunning.  I read Dawn’s posts and started reading the stories and transformation of her clients.  I saw Dawn in person in March and was mystified by how happy healthy and hot she looked!

In May I pulled the trigger and signed up.  I weighed in at 119 with 19.23% body fat.  It was shocking to see my before pictures documenting my start on this journey.  I was used to looking skinny and seeing 108 when I jumped on the scale.  Dawn started me on the XFAT LITE program to ease me in.  The first two weeks on the new eating plan were torture.  A big shift in what and how often I was eating.  No candy?  No wheat beers or IPAs?  No cereal for dinner?  Oh boy was my body in for a shock.

This was a cleanse for me.  I saw the eating plan and thought this will be a miracle if I can do this for one day without cheating!  I did ok the first 5 days (my two girls would say I was a grumpy mama!) and then had a bad day and fell off the plan and ate too many doughnuts and a box of Mike and Ike’s.  The next day I was very surprised how icky I felt.  Saturday and Sunday were “get back on track” days and I renewed my commitment to stick to the plan no matter what.  Each day got easier.  I started to feel better and I was sleeping through the night.  My body adjusted to this new “eat to fuel” way of meals and the workouts and there was no turning back.

After 3 weeks my girls started noticing the changes in my mood, outlook, and appearance! In 4 weeks my weight stayed the same but I lost 2% body fat! I went swimsuit shopping with my 6 foot 1 fifteen year old glamazon daughter and it was bitter sweet.  I had to go down a size but I still had much work to do to achieve my goal.  Confidence in my own skin.  Feeling great, strong and beautiful in a bikini.  At 41 this was more work than I ever imagined.  It was hard to admit that this would not come easy.  I would get the results if I did the work at 100%.

Progress continues and a week and a half ago I graduated to the XFAT plan and I have remained committed.  My results after four weeks on the XFAT LITE program are I am down to 116 pounds and 14.6% body fat (a loss of 4.6% body fat in four weeks!).  I have turned the corner.  I am amazed that this was always within me.  I am setting a healthy example for my precious girls that success can be measured in how we look externally but success is achieved with the balance in how we feel about ourselves.  Healthy, happy and hot!

If you are teetering on the edge of whether Dawn’s plans can work for you, trust me, take the leap of faith and commit! It works whatever your goals are.  If you follow her plan you will achieve success.  What do have to lose? Just some body fat and maybe some insecurities.  Shedding those two things in your 40’s is priceless.

When I finish my journey on the XFAT plan I will have Dawn post my updated pictures and you’ll see being “skinny” is not all it’s made out to be.  I’m now my own measuring stick!  I want to be a lifetime XFAT girl! (Click to View Transformation)

Click To View Transformation – (XFAT / XLRG Client)“I grew up as the original athletic tall skinny kid. I always had trouble putting on weight and had lightning fast metabolism.  Through heavy lifting over the past twenty-five years or so and lots of calories, I managed to grow to approximately 223 pounds at about 15% body fat.

Fast forward to my being introduced to Dawn and XBodyConcepts.  I talked with Dawn at length about my fitness goals and told her I had a phobia of getting skinny again, which is the opposite of most people.  Dawn somehow convinced me to give her XFAT program a try.  I did not mind leaning out but was petrified of the possibility I might lose muscle mass I had worked so hard to gain.  Dawn assured me that I would lose body fat and gain lean muscle mass.

I took the leap of faith and followed the XFAT plan to a “T.”  At the end of twelve weeks my weight had decreased from 223 pounds to 198 pounds and my body fat dropped from 15% to 6.7%.  The 6.7% body fat was calculated using a hydrostatic water body fat test which is supposed to be the most accurate available.  I was leaner than I had ever been before and still had my muscle mass that I had worked so hard to gain.

I am positive I could have continued on a follow-up version of the XFAT program and continued to cut body fat but I had now shifted gears and wanted to bulk up again.  Dawn put me on the XLRG program and customized a new meal and workout plan aimed at all out mass gains.

At the end of sixteen weeks on the XLRG mass plan I had gained an amazing 41 pounds!  I had increased my weight from 198 pounds to 239 pounds.  My body fat also increased from 6.7% to 9%.  Dawn advised me upfront that the XLRG program was aimed at all out mass gains and that I would definitely put on muscle mass but would surely gain some fat along with the muscle.  The XLRG program got me better results than I could have ever imagined.

I plan to begin a new hybrid version of the XLRG/XFAT program and am anxious to see the results!  Much thanks to Dawn and XBodyConcepts for helping me achieve my goals! (Click to View Transformation)

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT(Lite)3 Client)A little background on myself…  I have always been an athlete and in relatively good physical shape.  I played baseball at the college level.  As a college athlete, I learned the importance of exercising properly and developed good lifting technique.  However, the one thing it never really taught me was how to tailor my eating/nutrition/lifting regimen to lean out and gain muscle mass while maintaining a certain body weight. Once I stopped playing sports, I got more into lifting with a focus on gaining muscle mass.  I had never lifted for size gains before, so I started out how most people do.  I read books and magazines on lifting and began lifting with my more knowledgeable friends at the gym.  I made decent gains but there was no real science behind my methods; it was all just a shot in the dark through trial and error.  I pretty much lifted whichever muscle group I felt like and I had no plan for my gym sessions. I had a strong desire to get more definition and tone but was having trouble achieving it on my own.

Prior to talking with the XBodyConcepts group, I was 6’1”, 210 pounds with a body fat around 11%. I was benching in the mid 300’s and was rarely doing any leg exercises.  I was frustrated with all the fad programs and wanted someone knowledgeable to layout a plan that had the science behind it to assure I got the results I was after.  I was referred to Dawn at XBodyConcepts.  I told Dawn what my goal was and she customized a detailed workout and nutrition plan that was going to get me the results I was after.  Dawn provided me with a customized plan (XFAT Lite 3) that I was to stick to for 12 weeks. I took the challenge with the understanding that I would not be training for a competition and would break the meal plan occasionally for a night out or a dinner.  Though I know if I had adhered to the plan 100% my results would have been even better, I would say that I stuck to the plan about 95% of the time. Even with my occasional cheat meals, I was able to easily see the results almost immediately. I could see my abs coming through on my stomach and noticeable definition in my shoulders and arms.  My friends were noticing my results as well and I was getting a lot of positive feedback.  I felt very strong on all my lifts during the program. Additionally, I began to lift my legs again and am back to squatting in the mid 400s for the first time since college.  After 12 weeks on the program my final weight was 197 pounds and I dropped down to 8.2% body.  I am very pleased with my results and look forward to running the XLRG plan this winter to target all out mass gains!  (Click to View Transformation)

(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) / XFAT Client)It felt like the day that I turned 44, I was a different person. Not just because of the number but because of how I felt. I have always been a tall, fit to semi-fit runner girl that could pretty much eat what I wanted, drink what I wanted, then just miraculously run it off.  Then 44 happened and it was over.  It literally stopped and I was getting….gasp…FAT!  I could still hide it but I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes.  I’m 5’8″1/2 , I weighed close to 155 and had 23.6% body fat.

I knew Dawn (then Whatley now Morris) from High School and had friended her on Facebook. I didn’t really know much about her, other than she was a great gal and had posted these incredible “transformation” pictures of herself through the XBC Program.  In January, a month before my birthday, I made a post on Facebook to look half as good as Dawn and Michelle Camina (another high school friend) who was also training with weights.  They both remarked with sweet and sincere thoughts. I kept them in my fitness journey and mind.

I thought in January that I could do it by myself without any plan or diets.  So, I did what I know best, I ran.  I ran and ran but was only getting fatter and fatter.  This was so discouraging because it had always taken me a week….or two to get back. Now, I was stuck.  

Finally, April 1, 2012 -No Fools- I began Dawn’s XBC XFAT Lite Plan.  I will kid you not, it was rough but surprisingly filled with things that I was already drawn to and my body started to adapt immediately. The “food plan” was awesome and filling and then of course the workouts came.  I was directed not to run…..WTH….I’m a runner girl, that’s what I do. But I followed the plan.

Before I knew it, I was ready for the XFAT program. I stuck to the plan diet wise but had some gym issue commitments due to work. Surprisingly enough, I fell in love with the gym and my muscles and I felt full-on comfortable with any other gym boy/rat out there in that “scary free-weight room”.  All and all I think I rocked it!  Bottom line at the end of my training I lost 15 pounds….140 and am now 15% for a total loss of 8.6% body fat.

Thank you Dawn and Chad and all of my XBC Friends for the support. I’m going to continue my fitness journey.  Who knows, one day I might rock a bikini at a show when I’m 50 😉  Much love!

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT Client)Hello XBodyConcepts Family, I want to give a little background about my journey into bodybuilding and becoming a figure competitor.  During July of 2010, a friend introduced me to weight training and helped me prepare for my first Figure competition.  I didn’t place or even make the top ten in the competition, but I was hooked for sure.  I was determined to improve my physique by following a simple diet and weight training routine.  When I began training, my starting body fat was 28% and I weighed 165 pounds on a 5 foot 9 inch frame, needless to say I was skinny-fat.

In February of 2011, I decided to hire a professional trainer to help me train for my second competition.  Once again, I didn’t place, but I was considerably more conditioned than the previous show.  I was determined to prove to myself that I could make the necessary improvements by my third competition.

After my second competition, my body hit a plateau, I was stuck.  The extreme double cardio sessions and strict dieting left my body in a state of confusion.  No matter how hard I worked out, I continued to put on extra pounds and found myself at 179 pounds and 17% body fat!  I had also suffered a strained hamstring during a track workout that hindered my workouts.  It was suggested by a friend, that I contact Dawn at XBodyConcepts to get my diet and training dialed in for maximum results.  I was told that Dawn was an expert in getting people past their sticking points and had many strategies that she used to jumpstart her clients’ metabolism in situations where they had created problems for themselves using other far less effective weight loss and/or training schemes.

I started the XBodyConcepts XFAT program on December 11, 2011.  Dawn customized the program using a unique strategy to trick my body’s stalled metabolism into being a fat burning machine.  It was hard to believe I could eat the items on my meal plan, work out and still get results.  I had to resist my temptation to revert back to my old overtraining style of working out (i.e. double cardio days, etc.), in order to get the true benefits of the XFAT program.  As the weeks went on, I continued to consistently watch the body fat melt away, but with ease.  I also noticed I was gaining muscle.  I continued with the XFAT program up until five weeks before my competition and then transitioned to a specific Pre-Competition training regimen to dial in my physique for the May 5, 2012 – NPC Contra Costa Bodybuilding Competition.

Five weeks prior to the competition, I was amazed at the obvious improvements of my physique.  I had never had so much lean muscle mass coupled with such low body fat.  It was effortless compared to what I had been putting my body through prior to finding Dawn and XBodyConcepts.

THE RESULT…  On May 5, 2012, weighing in at 140 pounds and approximately 6% body fat, I won first place in the NPC Contra Costa Bodybuilding Competition (35+ Figure Competitor) and won fourth place overall in the open Figure Competitor Division.  The key to my success was allowing Dawn at XBodyConcepts to take me outside my comfort zone.  All I had to do was follow the XBodyConcepts plan and everything else fell into place!” (Click to View Transformation)
