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 …

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!

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!

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(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 – (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!

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…..

(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.

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 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!
