Once upon a time, there was a chubby personal trainer.
This guy devoured all the information on training and diet that he could get his hands on.
He was training hard five days a week, and taking all the supplements that are supposed to help.
But even with all those years of training, and despite all his “knowledge” about diet and exercise, he still looked out of shape and unfit.
Some days he was embarrassed to take a shower in the gym because he felt so puny.
So, our man took himself off to university.
Got a master’s degree in exercise science.
And that’s when things changed for the better.
Instead of relying on mainstream fitness advice, he started doing his own research.
Many hours were spent reading through research papers, figuring out what works and what doesn’t.
Instead of keeping all this information to himself, he set up a website to stop you making the same mistakes he did.
Slowly, people sat up and paid attention.
His advice started appearing in magazines like Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness.
Journalists would call asking for quotes. He was even invited to appear on BBC TV and radio.
I’m very familiar with his story, because that guy is me.
The website I built all the way back in 2000 started out as thefactsaboutfitness dot com.
Then in 2011, I decided to get rid of the “clunky” name and replace it with something that was a bit easier to remember.
And that, in a nutshell, is how Muscle Evo got started.
Anyway, enough about me.
I want to wrap this up by talking about you.
And, more specifically, your future.
There’s an old saying that goes something like this: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
In other words, if you want to generate a different set of results, you’ll need to start doing things differently.
And if you don’t know what to do, then you can learn what to do.
I know, because that’s exactly what I did.
The difference between you and me is that I had to learn the hard way. I wasted many years of my life (not to mention a lot of money) trying things that didn’t work.
You can take advantage of all the work and effort I put into figuring this stuff out.
So, I’ve put together some articles and guides that lay out the “how to” of building muscle and losing fat, which you can see here.
