I have below a Q&A with Morgan Mclellan who as a journalist living in Toronto completed my BuiltLean Program with some impressive results. Despite having a busy job and being completely out-of-shape when he started, Morgan lost over 20lb of fat in only 8 short weeks*.
As Morgan completed the program, we exchanged some emails to help him get the most out of the program. The before/after photos speak for themselves. To learn more about Morgan and his insights into successful body transformation, check out the Q&A below.
I hope you find his story inspirational!
Residence: Toronto, Ontario
Why did you get out of shape? What happened?
In all honesty, I’ve always struggled with my weight. I would get on a fitness routine for a few months, then just slack off. I attribute this to a lack of clear set goals and a plan to help me reach them. When I finished college a few years ago, I peaked at just over 200lbs, and that was unacceptable. I had to buy new pants, NEW shirts, the works. Yet that was not enough to motivate me to change my life. Over the course of a year, I dropped some here and there but never anything significant or to be proud of. This persisted until I came across BuiltLean.
What sparked you to make a change?
Something just clicked and I took a look at myself and said “enough is enough”. It’s time to kick my ass into gear and transform my body into the one I’ve always dreamed of. No more excuses.
How did you come across BuiltLean?
My cousin Max Hazan turned me onto the program. Max is the definition of what being ‘built lean’ is all about. And you can catch some of his delicious recipes on builtlean.com which I encourage everyone to try out.
BuiltLean Program Review
What results did you get with the BuiltLean Program?
Unbelievable results! Way more than I had anticipated. I’m telling you this program packs a fat-busting punch. When I look at myself in the mirror, there’s always a ‘holy sh*t’ moment. And I get the same reactions from friends and family who are thinking the same thing. And the best part is after 8 weeks… it’s just the beginning. If I can transform my body this much in two months, imagine the results in six months. I can’t wait to keep this success rolling.
How did the BuiltLean Program help you reach your goals?
The structure of the program helped keep me on track and keep me motivated. Being able to log and track workouts was a huge advantage to making sure I was pushing the limits every time I hit the gym. Not to mention the detailed workout instructions, this program challenges you in every way shape and form.
What did you like most about the Program?
Where to begin? I just want to say off the bat that Marc has been a phenomenal help. If I had any questions at all, I could fire him and email and he’d respond with more than just the answer. It’s almost like having him as a personal trainer even though we live in separate cities.
What are the workouts like?
These are killer workouts that maximized my time at the gym. What I was getting done in 45 minutes to an hour was more intense than anything I’ve done in the past. For me, the program put a stop to any breaks between sets which so many people do.
Can you elaborate on how your eating habits changed?
I’ve always been a health conscious guy, but this program widely increased the depth of my knowledge when it comes to nutrition. I also love to cook, so being able to get creative while making some incredibly tasty and healthy meals was just awesome and I enjoy it every time I fire up the kitchen.
What have your friends thought after seeing your results?
All their jaws just drop. Everyone, even people I see on a daily basis are just amazed with the results. And I can’t wait to show off my progress in another two months. I couldn’t be happier with the reaction I’m getting.
What would you tell someone who’s on the fence considering the BuiltLean Program?
Just do it. This program has changed my life in every aspect. I feel more confident, I look great, it even encouraged me to quick smoking. It’s a lifestyle, not a diet. The only thing you’ve got to lose is a lot of fat.
