I am looking for couples who want to Transform together 

Maybe you’ve decided it’s time to get on top of your health and strength? Maybe you’re getting married soon and want to get into ‘great shape’ for the big day? Maybe you’ve realised you’ve let yourself slip over the past couple of years and want to move better, feel stronger and fitter? 

Perhaps you simply want and need to transform your relationship with food, your waistline and your strength and fitness. 

If this is you, let me introduce the Amazing 12. 

The Amazing 12 program delivers all the above mentioned outcomes with methods you will never see in any other gym or the internet. While the exercises may be familiar, the 12 week program is incredibly smart, NOT a beatdown, NOT a starvation, juicing, pills or potions program – just a great program that will not only deliver the physical results but help you create a healthier outlook on exercise and nutrition. 

ARE YOU COMMITTED TO YOURSELF 100%?

Below are pictures of Jamie (48) and Vivienne (46) from Albany Creek. Both completed the A12 program with ease, Jamie losing 11kg he never knew he had whilst improving strength and fitness dramatically despite elbow problems. Viv lost 4.5kg and found herself feeling so much more confident and stronger in her day to day life. In fact, during the program she increased her 5 rep max squat to her 30 rep max squat!!!! 

I am accepting applications from people who are ready to commit 100% and make a change to their life. 

YOU will need to train three times a week for 45 minutes – that’s all. 

As the coach, potentially your coach, I am 100% committed to guiding you though every stage of the program, both in the gym, and via online nutritional support.

Conquering your New Year goals:

Simply Amazing success with simple new program

At this time of the year it’s an easy trap to fall into; the all or nothing exercise and diet trap. Hitting the exercise hard and jumping onto the most popular diet fad is the all too common solution when there is actually a smarter and simpler option. 

“Last spring we launched a new program to help clients lose some kilos and add some strength and fitness. To support my wife I joined in, expecting to maybe drop a couple of kilos myself. By the end of the 12 week program I had lost 11kg. I didn’t know I had that to lose! My squat strength took off, I found muscles I didn’t think a near 50 year old man could find and my cardiovascular fitness hit a level I hadn’t felt in years. 

It wasn’t just me, my wife did lose 4.5kg herself whilst doubling her squat and other strength moves.” Jamie said.

More than the physical enhancements though, Jamie and his wife Vivienne discovered how to appreciate simple home cooked food and value looking after themselves. They said they found the real them that was previously buried under the stress of fad diets, poor habits and undervaluing their own beliefs and value system. 

The Amazing 12 program has now been rolled out to other local people who have all rebooted themselves and discovered their own super abilities, values and great new lifestyle habits. 

“The program and the diet were surprisingly achievable even after a tiring day at work. I was so happy with how the results gave me more confidence in my appearance and loved the compliments I received. I look forward to doing the program again to see what else I can achieve.” – Vivienne, FitStrong client

The program is actually quite special. It was designed by strength and conditioning genius Paul McIlroy in Ireland who has himself transformed 10000+ people over 15 years with this same program. The program entails none of the expected all-out efforts and unrealistic diets but instead uses optimised programming to gradually expand each trainees comfort levels until new levels of strength and fitness are achieved. 

“I have been a trainer for over 25 years, and while I’ve employed many great strength and movement programs, the A12 is by far the most over-delivering program. The results are just amazing!”  – Jamie Hunter, owner operator of FitStrong Strength & Wellness

Strong is Amazing

Wanting to look slimmer or wanting to lose unwanted body fat is great in my mind. A drop of unwanted body fat is healthy, lowers risk of many diseases and improves quality of life. For most men, a body fat of 15 to 18% is healthy and attainable. For most women, a body fat of 20 to 24% is healthy and also attainable. How to get skinnier is a not a question I like. Anyone can starve themselves skinny, but that will result in a loss of strength, function, longevity, health and a host of other benefits that being strong and fit brings. The question I prefer is, “how do I get stronger and leaner?”

Of course the answer is to exercise and eat better but there is more to it.

A suitable exercise plan must involve strength training before interval training. If all you have is 2 hours a week, that time needs to be prioritised on getting stronger with the safest movements that stimulate the most amount of muscle mass. No ‘isolation’ exercises. Think big hitters like squats, bench press, pull ups, and some tricep and bicep specific movements (can’t forget the arms!)

If more time is available, then interval training can be added. To encourage the body to burn as much stored body fat as possible, the correct style of high intensity repeat training should be employed. Yet again, this must be the safest choice of exercise to get out of breath with.

Eat Eat Eat…

Nutrition must be the most contentious subject when we start to talk about fat loss. However, the most effective solution is also the simplest. Eat real food. Eat for your goals. Nutrient dense vegetables in abundance. Fruit is not evil. Seriously, no one ever has become obese eating strawberries or tomatoes! Protein in all its variation should be eaten often. The exact quantities depends on the individual.

The Amazing 12 Brisbane is a finely tuned program that delivers all the above. Exercise selection, nutrition and programming is optimised for the individual, for every single week and session of the 12 week program.

The results deliver not just fat loss, but athleticism in every participant.

#1 Optimisation of Exercise Technique – We’ll show you step-by-step the optimal (and required) techniques and their subtleties to master each exercise and minimise risk of injury even as you progress through higher and higher strength levels.

#2 Optimisation of Nutrition – The food you eat is very personal and if you battle through hunger or if your body craves something that’s missing, you will suffer needlessly. And then you’ll stop and eat what you want. The stakes are higher when it comes to fitness programs because the diet versus exercise debate has traditionally accepted the view that “It’s 90% diet.” We’ll teach you how the reality is that it’s actually 90% training when it comes to a body TRANSFORMATION (sounds bogus we know, but look at our results…we’ve proved it and we’ll prove it again and again). 

#3 Optimisation of Exercise Programming – Great technique and great nutrition are not enough. For optimal results, you need optimal programming. And since the vast majority of programs out there do not get results (and most fitness coaches fail to deliver results for their clients), something is clearly broken with fitness programming.  The main problem is the accepted view of “no pain, no gain.” It’s inspiring talk, but it’s no way to get long term results and is physiologically counter-productive. The reality is “Any pain, no gain.”! To perpetuate progress we shouldn’t leave our comfort zone…we should EXPAND it until it envelopes our previous limits.

How to Create Transformations that Last 

The incredibly successful total body transformation program, the Amazing 12, creates outstanding results. This is because it has a system that optimises exercise selection, progressive programming and nutrition. These three key areas of optimisation are tied together by focusing on five core components I will get into below. 

Stay in the ‘no threat’ zone

Whilst most programs focus on ‘going to the max’ and muscular failure, this only leads to gradual central nervous system stress and eventual plateau or worse still, injury and / or emotional burn out. With the A12 system, you do not “go to the max” and get shut down by your own central nervous system (CNS). Instead, you use a level of effort that is comfortable for your body to stay in the ‘no threat’ zone.

Learn to communicate to your Central Nervous System 

Your central nervous system (CNS) overseas and governs your bodies reaction to physical stress. If your training entails maximum efforts there will come a time when the stress is deemed excessive and the CNS will shut you down. A cramp, extreme fatigue or injury are all ways the body will react to repetitive high physical stress in order to stop you. It is a self defence method albeit an unpleasant surprise when you least want to experience it. 

This type of traditional and all too common training is based on falsehoods. Maximum efforts does not always equal beneficial results. A younger, enthusiastic beginner exerciser may progress for a few months with this method, but thereafter, it is an incredibly risky behaviour to continue. 

The Amazing 12 program ‘speaks to the CNS’ and uses the language of pain and comfort, threat and safety, effort and risk. We make sure the CNS always feels safe about your actions by remaining in your comfort zone, thus perpetuating the fastest and safest possible progress to take place.

Release your inner superpowers

Every single one of us has untapped strength and fitness within us.

Our CNS is the reason why we’ve all heard tales of spontaneous feats of superhuman strength. What is happening during these feats is your central nervous system is allowing the use of more motor units than it would under normal circumstances.

Normally, your CNS prohibits this because if it ever allowed you access to 100% strength, your muscles would actually break your bones. We’re all incredibly strong and the central nervous system has a trip switch that controls this access.

The A12 system never triggers this threat response in the first place, allowing fast and profound gains. 

Mathematically hack the superhero system

With the A12 training system, you’ll begin training in a place of extreme comfort. Then we skilfully expand what is comfortable without ever going to a peak, without ever triggering a threat response from your CNS.

The A12s Ai manipulates the maths behind the program’s progression so that the weights used increase at a pace proportionate to your progress. 

By using mathematical manipulation, your CNS consistently allows your comfort zone to expand, effortlessly pushing the peaks of strength and performance higher and higher. 

Expand your comfort zone until it envelops your limits

Possibly the biggest misconception in physical training is that in order to make any significant progress in any given time period (let alone just 12 weeks) we must first ‘leave our comfort zone’.  The irony is, once you fully understand how the body BEST makes progress, you quickly realise that the polar opposite is actually true. There exists a direct correlation between time spent training in relative comfort and the ultimate long term productivity of the program.

The magnitude of the gains you make are directly proportional to how well you can manipulate the maths to perpetuate numeric progress, NOT how difficult the training is. 

Attention to detail and applying multiple 1 percenters to the Amazing 12 program takes it above and beyond the abilities of other transformation programs. I am very blessed to able to coach this program.

A Total Transformation

I lost 11kg I didn’t know I had, my wife lost 4.5kg and proving the programs worth, other gym members have trimmed up heaps too but on top of the tightening waist lines, muscles grew and strength enveloped previous levels.

The training of the Amazing 12 ‘Express’ is not a bust-a-gut bootcamp or a daily 1 hour plus gym slog, just 35 minutes of a well planned optimal strength and conditioning program, and only three sessions a week. 

I’m going to say there was NO diet, because the nutrition side of the program was NOT a Diet. The nutrition focusses on optimal macronutrients for energy, recovery and adaptation. No low calorie suffering. Carbs, fats, proteins, fruit and heaps of vegetables are on the table. Processed foods and treats can be reserved for a weekly ‘cheat day’.

New year resolutions fail mostly because there is no plan or system, just a wish. 

The keys to success in this program and any program is being consistent to build new sticky habits and having support and guidance. The A12 program is set up to support each other throughout the 12 weeks at any time, even mid way around the weekly grocery shop when contemplating one product over another. 

The Amazing 12 Express continues in 2022 with bookings available now for free consultations and applications.

Another Amazing Transformation

It brings me great pleasure in sharing the graduation photographs and success of Bashier.

Bashier joined FitStrong in 2019 to add strength and conditioning to boost his mountain biking fitness. An untimely bike crash in Winter 2020 and a broken collar bone brought bike riding to a halt but that didn’t stop Bashiers gym time. Within a week of surgery Bashier was back in the gym, arm in sling and he followed a special program I put together for him to maintain his power and strength.

A year later, a new challenge arose when I introduced the Amazing 12 Express to FitStrong. Bashier jumped at the opportunity to lose some weight and gain some new endurance and skills. By the time of graduation Bashier had lost 7kg and added some new muscles too. His Squat 5 rep max became a 30 rep sub max, but 5kg heavier! His Pull-ups increased from a messy 1 to a strong 4 and his Bench Press 5 rep max increased by 64%. Remember that shoulder injury? Wow! All this with just three 45 minute sessions a week and having never touched a barbell before! So impressed is Bashier with the Amazing 12 that he has signed up to follow the program as soon as the gym reopens after New Year. I can’t wait to see what Bashier does next time. Great results to come. My next wave of the Amazing 12 will start early January. To learn more, head over to The Amazing 12 Brisbane.

In Just 12 WEEKS you can create your best YOU

Most of us have created goals – Do you keep yours?

The health and physical orientated goals we might have set may not have come to fruition for a few reasons – ‘life’, time, too lofty a goal, not setting the path and of course, just not following a plan!

Having a sense of self love is not necessarily just vanity. There is nothing wrong with vanity of course, but if you value not becoming frail, struggling with ill-health, not fitting into your favourite clothes and wanting to just feel ‘better’; we are talking about self love.

If you are thinking that 2022 could be the year to grab back your health, strength, fitness and start to love yourself, how you feel and see in the mirror – read on.

January 10th is my first day back at FitStrong after the festive break and I am kickstarting 2022 with the World’s #1 Total Body Transformation programme – The Amazing 12™.

The A12 has been globally successfully and very successful at FitStrong Strength & Wellness in helping people feel better, more confident, stronger, fitter and leaner. I consider the body fat loss a great side affect of the program as the benefits run further than just ‘weight loss’. 

The A12 program delivers all the above mentioned results with methods you will never see in any other gym or the internet. While the exercises may be familiar, the 12 week program is incredibly smart, NOT a beatdown, NOT a starvation, juicing, pills or potions program – just a great program that will not only deliver the physical results but help you create a healthier outlook on exercise and nutrition. 

ARE YOU COMMITTED TO YOURSELF 100%?

I am accepting applications from people who are ready to commit 100% and make a change to their life. 

YOU will need to train three times a week for 45 minutes – that’s all. 

As the coach, potentially your coach, I am 100% committed to guiding you though every stage of the program, both in the gym, and via online support.

The program is open to individuals committed to joining others and is open to applications for couples who want to train together during the Amazing 12.
