Results, Testimonials, & Risks Disclaimer

I have below a Q&A with South African Willem Steenkamp (photo to right) who completed the BuiltLean Program with some impressive results; he lost 6 inches off his waist (42 inches to 36 inches) and lost 20lb of fat (227 to 207lb) to name a couple changes*.

When I first saw an order from Namibia, Africa, I was surprised to say the least. In the ensuing weeks, I was able to converse with Willem via email during his journey to transform his body. Since I launched the BuiltLean Program, I have answered all customer questions myself (and I will for as long as I can!).

While Willem is still focused on losing more fat and getting in even better shape, his transformation in only 8-weeks is impressive. I hope you find his story inspirational!


Name: Willem Steenkamp

Age: 36

Occupation: MD Seasonaire (Pty) Ltd (Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractor)

Residence: Namibia, Africa

Hometown: Windhoek

How long have you been in Namibia?
I was born in Namibia

What is it like living there?
Best place in the world, very beautiful landscapes and wide-open spaces

Why did you get out of shape? What happened?
The most contributing factor was eating habits. We have a farm and a lot of unhealthy fatty meat, always for free.

What sparked you to make a change?
I felt unhealthy and unfit, even though I did cycle from time to time it was just not enough.

How did you come across BuiltLean?
I saw an advert on the Internet


What results did you see after 8 weeks with the BuiltLean Program?

Weight loss: 227lb to 207lb in 8 weeks*

Waist inches lost: 42 inches to 36 inches in 8 weeks*.

Total inches lost over my whole body in 8 weeks = 16.53inches*

All of this was just in 8 weeks, I am still focused and doing the program all over again. I would love to see core strength improve.

It was the combination of everything: exercise, nutrition guide, and motivation.

Loved it, still doing them.

Can you elaborate on how your eating habits changed?
The biggest change were the following 4 things: (1) stopped eating unhealthy fats, (2) cut out a lot of sugar, (3) changed my portion size, (4) no alcohol for 9 entire weeks!

What have your friends thought after seeing your results?
They are jealous.

    Hey Marc,

    Will the 8-week built lean program improve my overall fitness and body physique drastically if I’m already considered “in shape”? I am a male currently 5’6″, weighing in at 155 lbs, BMI of 25, and Body Fat is 14%.

      @Darrell – It’s impossible for me to say if you will change your body “drastically” with the program, but as you can see with the many success stories we have, it’s very possible. The results you get are contingent upon (1) how hard you work on the gym and (2) how well you follow the nutrition guidelines. If you nail the exercise and nutrition, then it is my belief you will get some impressive results. You can always email me, or our support staff for any extra clarity once you purchase the program if you have any questions. Having a structured exercise and nutrition plan makes it much more likely that you will get the results you want. So if you are looking to get leaner than you are, my best guess is that the program will not disappoint.
