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 …

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)

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 – (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!

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 Client)Hi Dawn, I took my after pics and had my body fat tested. I started out with a 28% body fat and ended at 18 %. I lost a total of 20 lbs during the XFAT workout and lifestyle (Diet) plan. I learned so much about eating the proper foods for fuel and not just for pleasure. The food was the most difficult part for me. I learned how to cook several different types of recipes and did not get frustrated at myself if I fell off the wagon occasionally. Having been a skinny hard gainer until the last few years I never had to worry about what I ate. Once I got older the weight began to add up. Additionally, working the type of job I have which requires me to work odd hours without much sleep it is difficult to find food late at night. Planning my meals and cooking in bulk ahead of time really helped.  Overall, I felt like I have more energy, stamina and strength. I have never had so many people in the gym compliment me on my change in physique. My wife is also very happy with the results. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all of the encouragement and advice along the way. This plan has changed my life.

The one piece of advice I would like to tell current and future members is this. Going to the gym used to be a time for me not to just workout but to socialize with friends. When you start this program tell your friends in the gym ahead of time so you don’t suddenly become the guy (or girl) that offends everyone. I was so focused on my training and rest times that I no longer had time to socialize. I recommend buying a shirt that says “I’m not an asshole, I’m training.” So many times people would be talking to me and I would either just be in the zone and not hear them or I would force them to follow me throughout the gym to talk because I wasn’t stopping. I just recently completed the Tough Mudder challenge. I never quit throughout the 11 mile course and although I was tired and sore I had some left in the tank at the end of the challenge and felt great.

Lastly, your plan provided me with a very descriptive program. There was no guessing as to what to eat and when, or what body part to train and how and when. It was all there written on the paper in front of me. Just follow your plan and your goals will follow. Thank you again, a very lean – Joe M.

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)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!

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT(Lite) Client) – I was an avid runner or to put it in plain text a“cardio junkie.”  Dawn turned me onto the XFAT Lite program. The Natzi fitness and nutrition queen ordered me to stop the cardio I was doing and follow her exercise program to a “T”.  Using her XFAT Lite program for just the first 6 weeks, I saw a dramatic difference in my body.  My starting measurements were 27.9% body fat and is now 25.7%, my biceps were 11.5 inches, now they are 10.75 inches, my waist was 35 inches and is now 31.5 inches. My weight was 173 pounds now I am down to 163 pounds.  By following the XFAT Lite program I am now seeing better results than I ever got from doing cardio alone.  I highly recommend this program if you want to see a difference! Thank you Thank you Thank you Dawn, AKA: Fitness & Nutrition Natzi!
