The Businessman’s Minutes-a-Day Guide to Shaping Up

Free sample

The ladder to success is a lot easier to climb without the excess baggage of flabby arms, chests, and waist. Furthermore, the increased stress that arises from increasing business responsibilities can be more readily overcome by a man who is in peak shape than one who isn’t. Just as hard work in the business world can be its own reward, so is working out. In fact, shaping up not only ensures robust health and a longer life, but it improves a man’s ability to bring about and enjoy business success by looking good, feeling good, and making good impressions on business colleagues.


The Businessman’s Minutes-a-Day Guide To Shaping Up is more than another book of exercise and diet tips. It addresses the problems a businessman faces in finding time to exercise, in setting goals for training, and in changing eating habits that make gaining or losing weight difficult.


The Businessman’s Minutes-a-Day Guide To Shaping Up includes:


• exercise programs developed for a variety of needs and body structures

• knowledgeable recommendations on training equipment and on training at home, at a gym, or on the road

• training programs for improved sports performance

• expert advice on the prevention and treatment of training injuries, jet lag, stress and anxiety, and even eye strain

• a primer on the basics of nutrition, proper food combining, and vitamin and mineral supplementation

• an account of one businessman’s training under Dr. Columbu’s direction that provides valuable insights on sticking to a training program, managing time, and setting goals

Have you tried all the diets already? Sick and tired of being sick and tired? Frustrated when people ask you how your diet is going? 

Let me tell you something that your personal trainer won’t tell you and you won’t learn at the gym: The only way you’ll ever lose the weight and more importantly keep the weight off is by learning how to diet and exercise for yourself. You see…

People spend BILLIONS  (yes, that billions with a “B”) every year on fad diets that work for a month. Then, ounce you stop, you put the weight back on plus ten pounds. 

Why is that you might ask… because no one can continually starve themselves. You see eventually you’ll have to eat like a normal human being. 

Even more money is spent on work out equipment advertised on late night infomercials promising you that you’ll lose 50 pounds if you just use their machine for 20 minutes a day... Come on!  We all know better than that - right? 

The truth is sometimes we‘re so willing to try anything not cause we’re stupid but because we really want to lose weight. I mean who wouldn't want to look and feel their best? Not to mention that, unfortunately, it is statistically proven that overweight people make less money than thin people. Totally unfair, I know, but it’s true.

So what do you need to do? Here’s the secret you already know…

The only way that you’ll ever keep the weight off is by educating yourself on how to do it and learning how your body works. 

So you finally want to keep the weight off? This book will teach you everything you’ll need to know to finally do so.

You’ll learn everything about:

•      Your genetics, specific body type and how to deal with them when it comes to losing weight. 

•      Why nutritional experts are wrong when they say no carbs and no fat.

•      When you should eat the food you crave like cake and when you shouldn’t. 

•      How your metabolism works with your body.

•      The truth behind fats.

•      Different types of proteins and how they affect your body.

•      Which vitamins you should take and which ones might be making you fatter.

•      Secrets behind which protein powders work and which just make you fat!

•      Which gym equipment works and which machines are a complete waste of your time.

•      What exercises to focus on and how to do them right to make the most out of your workout

•      Not spending hours at the gym but 45 minutes and getting ten times better results 

etc ....

I could go on and on talking about all the great information in this book. But, for now, all I want you to understand is that if you're truly committed to keeping the weight off, you will have to learn for yourself. Don’t count on a trainer that will cost you thousands… or a piece of equipment that’ll only end up collecting dust in your closet.

I have been personal training for over ten years and have helped thousands HELP THEMSELVES to lose weight and keep it off.  And exactly that information I have now put into this book.

The truth is that most people will pass up the opportunity and then tell themselves every new year's that this is the year that they’ll hopefully lose the weight. But I want to believe that this is not you and that you can do better.

So let me ask you: Are you tired of being overweight? Tired of not feeling your very best? What are you waiting for? 

This book has helped thousands of men build their best bodies ever. Will YOU be next?

Here’s the deal:

Building muscle and burning fat isn't as complicated as the fitness industry wants you to believe. This book is the shortcut.

- You don't need to: Waste a couple of hours in the gym every day grinding through grueling workouts. In fact, this is a great way to get nowhere.

- You don't need to: Obsess over "clean eating" and avoiding "unhealthy" foods to get ripped. Instead, you can get the body you want eating the foods you love.
