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 it also breaks your total weight down into fat lbs. and lean muscle lbs. so you know exactly how much you need to lose if you want to get to a certain body fat %.  I also recommend taking a lot of before pictures so that you can see the transformation at the end. Then you will have physical proof!

My initial results came back that I was 11.5% body fat.  That equated to 26 total lbs. of fat and 202 lbs. of lean muscle.  I had always wanted to try to compete in a physique competition but I never felt confident enough in my ability to manipulate my diet enough to drop down into the low single digit body fat range.  This where Dawn convinced me that if I followed her program to a “T” I would get the results I was looking for in roughly 3 months time.  I was skeptical at first, but I figured I had tried many times on my own to make it happen and could never seem to quite get there so this was my last resort.

I followed the meal plan exactly as it was laid out for me and tried my hardest to follow the workout routine as closely as I could manage.  I had a few nagging injuries throughout that kept me out of the gym for short periods of time.  I never cheated on my diet program because I knew that was where the majority of my results would come from with trying to get to such a low body fat percentage. When I did a follow up body fat test exactly 12 weeks after beginning Dawn’s program my results shocked me to say the least.  I had dropped down to 6.5% body fat.  My lean mass actually increased by 2 lbs. from 202 to 204 and my fat mass dropped from 26 lbs. down to 14lbs for a total weight of 218 lbs.  So roughly I was able to lose 1lb of pure body fat each week while simultaneously adding a couple pounds of muscle in the process!

After seeing how lean I had gotten by following the XFAT program I finally had the confidence to enter my first Men’s Physique contest this past weekend on 7/14.   I ended up taking 4th place out of 50 competitors and would have placed higher according to the judges had I nailed my posing routine.  So all in all, I am very happy with how far I’ve come and I have already committed to doing three more shows before the end of this year. For me, having a deadline like a competition is all the motivation I need to not slack off with my diet.

The biggest thing I learned by joining the XBC group (and the XBC Private Facebook Group), is that a community of people supporting each other and rooting for each others success is the true magic that makes these transformations like mine possible.  I can honestly say that without the encouragement and daily motivation that I get from the XBC group, I probably would have given up at some point like I had in the past.  But the real key to seeing results comes from CONSISTENCY!  Never giving up no matter how frustrated you feel or how tired and sick you get of eating the foods that you eat on a daily basis.  Because at the end of the journey there is no greater accomplishment than the sense of pride you feel when you complete the program knowing you gave it everything you’ve got.  Not to mention you end up looking better than you ever thought possible.

Thank you Dawn and all the members of XBC that have encouraged me throughout this process.  I am going to continue training and eating like a beast until I earn my Pro Card in the NPC for Men’s Physique!

Read Full Testimonial – (XLRG Hybrid Program) –

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 – (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 Client)There seems to be a point with most guys who truly “work-out”, where they finally figure out what lifts, exercises, diet, etc. seem to be the right combination to gain muscle mass and stay acceptably lean.  I reached this point some time in college.  I finally built the muscles I always wanted and got that great “pump” in the gym that everybody strives for.  Even for a few years following college, I was enjoying the gym and would make different alterations to my workouts that would continue to challenge my body whether I wanted to bulk up or get cut.  No matter what changes I made or different exercises I performed it was always based on a single-muscle-group per day type of workout with little to no cardio. When I was younger and mostly cared about gaining mass this worked fairly well but as time went by I was not reaping the same results.  My body had finally gotten used to the same old routine and for the past couple of years I was just sort of maintaining and had lost my ambition in the gym.  After saying for years that any type of circuit training didn’t work for me and that I could eat anything as long as I lifted daily, I finally came to a realization. I needed to not only completely change my routine, type of training and diet but more importantly, I needed a well laid out plan in front of me to follow.

Just as I was coming to this realization, my friend Chad mentioned XBodyConcepts to me in the gym. I was very reluctant at first, but after checking out the website and seeing other people’s great results and seeing what members were posting in the XBC Facebook group I decided to go for it.  After sending all of my information to Dawn she put together an XFAT program for me and upon receiving it I was blown away.  I hadn’t expected it to be so well put together and complete.  I also knew that it was going to make me hurt.  A week or so in, that pain turned into awesome pumps and that amazing feeling we like to call “beast mode” in the gym.  My body was changing again and I finally felt that desire to go lift that I thought I had lost. It is hard to make oneself stick to a diet but for some reason, the way Dawn laid it out it was actually pretty easy to follow. My body responded very well to the diet and my energy levels and recovery time were great.  By the end of my 12 week XFAT my endurance had skyrocketed, I felt really strong, looked great and couldn’t wait to hit the gym every day. I can’t wait to get started on my XLRG(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) 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 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!

Read Full Testimonial – (XFAT Client) – After running the XBodyConcepts XFAT program I dropped 14% bodyfat !!!  All while gaining a significant amount of muscle (nearly 3 inches on my biceps alone)!!!  My waist decreased by approximately 7 inches too!  My results were well beyond my expectations!!  There is no question that the XBC custom fitness plans work, and they work extremely well!!  Life couldn’t be better!  Thanks Dawn!

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!

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)
