Click to View Transformation – (XFAT Client) – When I began the XFAT program given to me by Dawn I weighed 228 lbs. at 6’3”. I had no idea what my body fat % was because I hadn’t had it tested in a few years.  The first thing I would recommend to people is to get the most accurate body fat test done when you begin your program so that you can see the actual composition change taking place in your body. I chose hydrostatic testing because it is considered to be among the most accurate and …

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!

After previously completing my cut on the XFAT program, I then moved onto the XLRG mass program where I made huge gains and increased my weight from 198 pounds to a high of 250 pounds.  My body fat also increased from the low 6% range to about 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.

After completing the mass building phase I wanted to lean out but maintain as much muscle as possible.  Dawn advised a very slow cut aimed at all out muscle preservation.  So I started the XLRG Hybrid plan.   On the XLRG Hybrid plan I have managed to drop my bodyfat from the 9% range to the high 6% / low 7% range and my weight is currently right at 235 pounds.  Mission accomplished Dawn!  I feel like this is the leanest and fullest I have ever been and I plan to continue with this plan for as long as the gains keep coming.  Much thanks to Dawn and XBodyConcepts for helping me achieve my goals!

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!

I am 40 years old and have worked out off and on most of my life. I am very active and like participating in different sports. I wanted to get in better shape and was looking for something new. In the past two years I have worked out pretty consistently, but felt my workouts were like groundhog day. I needed something to change things up. I have done P90X in the past and liked the principle of muscle confusion. I heard about Dawn and X Body Concepts and thought this was just what I needed to change things up.

I decided to do the XFATWO as my diet was pretty disciplined and only needed some minor tweaking. My beginning weight was 192 lbs. I did the hydrostatic body fat testing in the beginning as I was told it was the most accurate. To my surprise my body fat % was 12.9%. I thought it was much higher. My goal was to loose body fat and keep as much muscle mass as possible. My goal was to get to 10% body fat or less.

As I continued week by week I felt stronger and could see the results. I felt like I had a lot of energy and always felt I got a good workout. Every couple weeks as the workouts changed I felt like I had that “good muscle soreness”, which told me the workouts were working and my muscles were no getting used to the same old workout.

Dawn is very knowledgable and was always there to answer questions. The X Body Concepts Facebook page was also very helpful and motivating. There were articles published relating to diet and different exercises which were very helpful.  It was very motivating to have that kind of support.

At the end of the 14 weeks I felt I saw good results. I was down to 181 lbs. My arm, quad, and calf size stayed the same, however I felt I could see more definition. I gained size in my chest and shoulders, and lost 2 1/2 inches in my waist. My final body fat percentage was 10.6%. Even though I was slightly off from my goal of 10% body fat, I feel I could have obtained that goal had I been a little more strict in my cardio efforts.

All in all I am very pleased with the program and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to loose body fat and lean out. I may try the XLRG program over the winter and run the XFAT program again in the spring.

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT Client)So I felt inclined to write a testimonial about my experience with the XBC workout and nutritional plans…  I’m not one to pass my name off on something on a whim, I truly have to believe in the product, which in this case I do.  I have gone a long time trying to reach my fitness and body image goals and have struggled for a long time.  Fitness has always been a challenge for me.  I was into it and wanted to do it, but in a world where attention spans are measured in seconds, if I didn’t see results extremely fast I was disheartened and eventually gave up on the endeavor.

Fast forward some time later and again I’m trying to get into shape, not only for the sake of vanity but for my job in law enforcement. Not knowing how to go about radically changing my body, I sought out Dawn at XBODYCONCEPTS and her XFAT program.  The results were undeniable and I felt the difference right away. A couple weeks in and I started to see the difference in myself.  A few more weeks and other people were seeing the difference in me and the compliments started pouring in. When this happens it fuels your fire and it makes adopting this lifestyle very easy which is what happened to me. 

Don’t get me wrong there were times I was cursing the high heavens because I was sore, felt sick from being sore, tired, weak, and hated eating.  In that struggle, you find what you’re really made of.  The question is not if Dawn’s plans work because they do, and they do very well, you will be hard pressed to find anyone more knowledgeable or more accessible than Dawn.  She is always available to answer any questions or hear any concerns you may have.  The question becomes if you have the constitution and courage to stick it out when it all seems lost and there is no end in sight.  All the tools you need are here.  The secret is that your results won’t come from a pill, powder, gel, or whatever, they come from dedication and hard work, as they should!  Que the motivational posters we have all come to love so dearly!

So my results after completion of the XFAT program are as follows:

Body fat: 12.6% to 9.2%

Weight: 168lbs to 175lbs (lean muscle gains!)

I lost body fat and gained muscle at the same time!  Plus definition and I can see my abs….

So without any mental reservation I highly recommend Dawn and her XBC programs!  I am truly appreciative to Dawn and Chad and all the other XBC members for all their advice and guidance along my journey which is still not yet complete.  I will check back in and give you my results after I finish the XBC XLRG program!

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)

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)

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(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!

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)
