Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT Client) – After just one month of the XBODYCONCEPTS way, I feel great. I am not yet where I want to be, but the progress is encouraging. I have lost 8lbs of fat, gained 7lbs of muscle and went from 12.8% body fat down to 8.4%. I always thought eating “clean” would be horrible. It has actually become much easier and more convenient. I nolnger have to figure out what to eat on the fly. It allows me to be more organized and productive throughout my day. Not to mention, I am no longer tempted to gorge on fast food junk. I am excited about my progress and look forward to what i can accomplish in the next month, two, three, four…..

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) / 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!

Read Full Testimonial – (XLRG Client) – I’ve been bodybuilding since I was fifteen, and now I’m in my mid thirties.  To say I’ve tried it all is an understatement. I’ve used the pills, I’ve used the powders, even the stuff that isn’t legal anymore. My problem area has always been width…year after year, rep after rep, I haven’t been able to get my shoulders, back, and traps to break that plateau, and start putting some real size on. These days I’m on a police department SWAT team, and serve as the breacher…strength and conditioning aren’t just a matter of ego anymore, they’re a matter of survival. Several of my coworkers use XBC programs, and, nine weeks ago, I gave their XLRG program a shot. Bottom line: Dawn knows what she’s talking about.  I’ve been running XLRG for just over two months, and I finally have busted that plateau that’s been plaguing me all these years.  Here’s the real numbers:  half inch to arms, two inches to chest, a full inch to calves, and two inches to shoulders.  I was able to increase my body weight by 21 pounds on the XLRG program, but, thanks to the clean eating on the diet, I’m not some bloated, “dirty bulk” blob of goo.  All that with only a 2.2% body fat gain!  It’s not easy…I was working my tail off in the gym, and at the table, but in the end it was worth every bit. I’ll add this too, the XBC community (XBodyConcepts Facebook Group Member Page), is all about support and advice. Rookies, experts, and everything in between meet here to make sure that we all stay on track.  I can’t wait to start my XFAT program, and cut this 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 – (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!

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!

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)

Click to View Transformation – (XFAT Client)Talk about an impressive transformation.  I was told prior to beginning the XFAT program that it was designed to burn fat.  I figured I would lose some weight, but I never expected to lose this much weight.  From the beginning, I decided to follow the program to a “T” and see where it took me.  I began by setting weekly weight loss goals for myself and was surprised to see that I either consistently met, or exceeded my own weight loss goals.  From day one this program was a winner for me.  The XFAT program outlines everything exactly what to do and when to do it.  All you need to do is follow the program and watch the fat disappear.  The program took me from an out of shape old man, to a younger stronger more fit and happier person.  I keep hearing from different people that I look completely different and 10 years younger.  My own parents say I’m half the man I use to be.  I don’t think I can thank Dawn and XbodyConcepts enough for laying down the roadmap to bring me to the person I am today.  The final result on the XFAT plan is a loss of 42 pounds and a decrease of 15% body fat!  My waist size decreased from 43.5” to 33” a loss of 10.5”!!!  I am excited to continue my physique transformation on the new XFAT2 plan!” (Click to View Transformation)
