You are very busy. You are overloaded with information.
You are very skeptical about much of the advice you read on the Internet, and a large part of you suspects I am full of crap.
So before you spend any more time looking around, let me tell you a little more about myself.
Then you can decide for yourself if I’m able to help you.
What will this site do for you?
The purpose of Muscle Evo is simple: to show you proven, fast and easy-to-follow ways to burn fat and build muscle. Put these ideas to work and very soon you’ll be leaner, stronger and fitter than you are today.
If you’re stuck in a rut with your current exercise and diet plan… fed up with only losing a pound here and there… or still skinny after months (or even years) of trying to build muscle and gain weight, then I can help you get the results you’re looking for.
What makes this site different from all the rest?
I am very results oriented. If and when I give you advice, you can be sure I’ll be speaking from experience. There’s nothing I’ve ever written about, be it a food supplement, diet or exercise routine, that I haven’t used myself.
I know what it’s like to spend hours in the gym, waste a fortune on food supplements and see little or nothing in the way of results. I understand how it feels when you want to give up because nothing seems to be working. Because of this, you won’t hear me talking about unproven theories, exercise gimmicks or the latest fitness fads.
I’ve stood by and watched many fitness bandwagons roll by… hordes of people scrambling to get on… only to see them slowly trudging back my way when the wheels fall off.
I don’t want to waste my time, and I won’t waste yours either.
I have no interest in following trends, fashions or fads. It’s easy to feel so overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice about exercise and nutrition that your brain feels like it’s going to burst. The sheer volume of information is literally overwhelming. And many of the “experts” disagree.
To keep you informed about what really counts, I sift through the latest research and consumer reports on your behalf. I collect information, advice and facts from the world’s top experts and research journals on the best ways to burn fat, build muscle and get strong. Then, I present it to you in a way that you can understand and act on.
I’ve got a solid background you can trust. As a certified personal trainer, I’ve spent more than a decade working with people of all shapes and sizes, as well as training regularly myself for over 20 years.
With a master’s degree in exercise science, I’ve also worked as a “trainer to the trainers,” lecturing at university as well as for private training organizations (including Premier Training, a company considered by many as the leading provider of training to exercise professionals in the United Kingdom) on fitness training, weight loss and the effective use of nutritional supplements.
If you live in the UK, you might have seen me in the BBC TV series Body Hits – the short (120 seconds) video clip below is an extract from the series, where I had just 4 weeks to whip London’s worst hockey team into shape.
I also write extensively on the subject. You’ll find my articles and views published in numerous magazines, leading industry journals and websites worldwide, including Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Esquire, and Fit Pro.
After 15 years online, I’m proud to remain completely independent. I’m not sponsored by anyone, and there’s nobody paying me to say good things about their product.
It’s evidence-based. Much of what passes for “fact” in the health and fitness industry is based on theory and speculation rather than any hard evidence.
Why should you believe what I have to say?
My answer to you is that you SHOULDN’T.
In fact, I’d suggest that you approach my website in exactly the same way that I would if I was in your shoes — with a healthy skepticism and a “show me the proof” attitude.
That’s why most of the articles I write reference research journals, books and other sources that I’ve used to help me put the article together.
Why do I do this? When I give you advice, you don’t have to take my word for it. You can go and check out the research for yourself.
I don’t blindly trust “experts,” and I don’t expect you to either.
One of the best places to get your hands on a goldmine of fat-burning secrets and natural muscle-building techniques that can save you years of wasted time and effort is in research journals. There’s a mass of desirable information out there that few people get to read about in books or magazines.
I’m also a “detail” guy. By the time reports of a study reach your favorite newspaper or magazine, important details about the way it was done are often left out or ignored. The devil, as the saying goes, is in the detail. I’ll do my best to explain exactly what happened in a particular study so you can decide for yourself what the results really mean.
When you sign up for my newsletter, I will occasionally (and by occasionally, I mean VERY occasionally — once every month or two at the most) write to tell you about a fitness product that I think will help you achieve your goals.
Why am I doing this?
The first reason is money. People often wonder how I make a living running a website where much of the content is freely available. This is how I do it.
However, I’ll only ever recommend a product if it comes with a money-back guarantee. This means that if I recommend crap, and you ask for a full refund, then I lose my commission.
So I’m only going to tell you about the stuff that works. It’s rare that I get involved in any of the big fitness product launches doing the rounds on the Internet these days, mainly because I’m extremely picky about what I recommend.
Unless something is good enough for me to use myself, I won’t recommend it to you either.
Before you continue, I should point out that Muscle Evo is definitely not for everyone.
It certainly won’t please the man or woman who thinks they already know it all. I can’t promise a magic bullet — as it seems every book on nutrition and exercise seems to do these days — because there isn’t one.
Magazines, books and exercise devices always seem to offer “too good to be true” results. In truth, they’re promising what can’t be delivered. I’m not going to do that.
All I can do is tell you what to do and why. But you’re the one who will need to roll up their sleeves and get to work. There’s no dancing around the fact that getting in shape requires effort and self discipline.
It won’t happen overnight. But if you’re prepared to act on what you learn, I can help you get the results you’re looking for.
