In Six Weeks–Do You Want To Be Sitting In the
SAME BODY As You Are Right Now? Or Do You Want To Look In The Mirror & See A LEANER, FIRMER You?

Date: Thursday, February 9, 2012
From: Clarence Ferguson

I’m glad you found this page because the “6-Week Transformation” is my most powerful program–it’s the program that consistently gives my clients the most fat loss in the shortest amount of time (it will make you look better, faster).

Without boring you to death or going into sales pitch overdrive–the “6-Week Transformation” is a 6-week fat loss program consisting of:

It’s your “track to run on”. If you’re overwhelmed with too many sources–everybody telling you something different: “do this” “no, don’t do that”, this is the program for you.

I’ll get more specific in a minute, but first I wanna tell you what it’s NOT. That way you don’t waste your time if this program isn’t right for you.

“I GUARANTEE you WILL NOT loss a million pounds in 6 weeks.”

The “6-Week Transformation” IS NOT one of those “lose a million pounds in a split second” things we’ve both been tempted by on TV. I can’t GUARANTEE that you’ll achieve any specific results. You get out what you put in. But you know this already…

The workouts are not on DVD–they are live in a private studio in Scottsdale (basically right next to the Air Park). The studio is a clean, comfortable environment for private client e ONLY. It’s air-conditioned and it doesn’t smell like a locker room. There are nice bathrooms where you can change clothes and shower.

The actual workouts are about 45 minutes long. Each exercise is very short and is presented with different versions–easy, medium, and hard. So no matter how good or bad of shape you’re in–you’ll be able to participate fully but also challenge yourself immensely.

There are 16 different boot camp workouts for you to choose from every week. As part of the “6-Week Transformation” you get unlimited access to all of them–mix and match however you want to fit your schedule. You can work out in the morning or the evening, and there are workouts scheduled most days.

The nutrition program is really awesome too–I call it the “NON-DIET” because I don’t want you to think of it as a diet–I want you to think of it as a way of life. Something you can sustain forever.

Now, I know that sounds crazy. But hear me out. I’m a real, normal person just like you. And I don’t know what you like specifically, but I can tell you now I LOVE A GOOD Whiskey,LOADED MASHED POTATOES AND FRIED CHICKEN. So, I created the “NON-DIET” to be super effective, but also SUSTAINABLE.

“Yes, I’m actually ENCOURAGING you to CHEAT!”

Which brings us to the most popular feature of the “NON-DIET”: the “cheat meal”. Every weekend, you get one “cheat meal”. EAT WHATEVER YOU WANT–any food, any drink, any dessert your little heart desires. This “cheat meal” makes it easier to stick to the program during the week because it gives you something to look forward to come the weekend.

Last but certainly not least is the goal setting and accountability with me. The boot camp workouts cover “calories out”. The “NON-DIET” covers “calories in”. Those are the fundamentals of fat loss.

But ACTUALLY DOING THIS STUFF is what will really get you the results. You can have an awesome boot camp available or an amazing [not] diet to follow but if you don’t actually do anything–you’ll look exactly the same in 6 weeks as you do right now.

So, as part of the “6-Week Transformation” you’ll be required to submit your food logs and be hounded by me or my staff if you don’t show up for your workouts. I’ll work with you PERSONALLY to set challenging yet realistic goals. And more importantly, I’ll be there every step of the way to make sure you’re always on track to actually ACHIEVE them!

I don’t phone it in either. I’m always at the studio. I lead several workouts and even when I don’t, I’m oftentimes there anyway. I’m not hard to find. And my staff is awesome. We are all there to make you happy. To get YOU results.

“I’m the real deal. My program’s the real deal.
You can be the real deal too.”

Bottom line: Everybody talks a good game on their websites and in their ads. But I know the truth–I’m way more successful when I focus on HELPING you get REAL RESULTS than I would be hyping it up, promising the moon, leaving you disappointed, and moving on to the next one.

I’m the real deal. My program is the real deal. When you click that button, you’re gonna be the real deal. You’re gonna finally change your body–not overnight–and not without hard work and discipline. But you will change the way you look in just six weeks.

And if you’re still a little skeptical, that’s cool. Even though I can’t guarantee you’ll lose 57 pounds in 6 weeks like those other Frauds do, I can guarantee you this:

Click the button and join the next “6-Week Transformation”. Follow the program for real. I’m not saying be Superman and the best in the class or anything like that, but come to the workouts–give it your all. Follow the “NON-DIET”. Follow it like you mean it–it’s not that hard, I promise. And meet with me, call me, email me. Set your goals. If you don’t see the results you’re looking for–the goal that YOU set for YOU–I’ll refund all you’re money.

The “6-Week Transformation” will not only be a fun, group experience–it’ll help you finally get the body you desire. It’ll help you fit into the clothes you covet. Real results that you’ll see in the mirror every single day. Sleeker arms. Nicer thighs. A flatter stomach. They are all within reach. Only you can grab them though.

But I can help you as much as humanly possible–and that’s exactly what I do when you sign up for the “6-Week Transformation”. This is my all-inclusive, top-level program–I give my “6-Weekers” TOP PRIORITY.

I provide you with EVERYTHING you need.

Do you want sleeker arms, nicer thighs, and a flatter stomach?

It’s there for the taking.

I’ll see YOU at boot camp,

Most people have some intention of trying to get healthier in the next year. The problem is that their plan is not very specific and it lacks the compelling reasons WHY they want to be in better shape. If you fall into the category of going all out come Jan 1 – working out 5 days/week, eating well, feeling great, only to wake up one morning with enough motivation to shut off the alarm clock, you definitely need to dig deeper into why you want to lose the weight and come up with a long-term plan.

Do you find you are mostly on your own when it comes to eating healthy and having intentions of losing weight? Is your partner overweight, yet doing nothing about it? Are you the only one in your household enjoying large salads, nuts, and fresh fruit and berries?

What if you and your partner BOTH decided to get in the best shape you possibly can in 2012? I mean, NO EXCUSES. What if you both decided to commit to a workout plan as a couple? You could hold each other accountable. You would be a team. You would be eating the same foods. You would no longer feel that you are ‘denying’ yourself anything because you are both eating the same meal. You would not have to feel tempted by the other foods in the house because they are not there! You could surround yourself with only healthy foods. You would feel that connection with your partner because you are both going after the same goal. Doesn’t this sound like a fantastic beginning to the New Year? How about the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in your life?

I feel so fortunate that friends are health nuts. We are always encouraging each other to work out and eat well. We have each other’s best interests in mind. It is so much easier to think and act like a fitness minded person when you hang with the same mindset as one. Fitness becomes your identity. It’s just a wonderful way to live versus trying to reach your health goals on your own. It’s like a constant battle field when other people in your home are not on your team. The goal in mind seems so much more out of reach. The fun of it is missing. Eating well seems more challenging because your intentions are different from everyone else’s.

I guarantee you that your journey towards healthy living will be that much more successful with your partner ‘on board’ with you. So you’ve got some thinking to do now:

1. How do I get my partner to want to get fit with me? Ultimately this will need to be their choice. However you can give them the reasons why you feel it would beneficial to you as a couple to get fit together.

2. Do you have a program you can both follow?

3. When will you do your cardio?

4. Do you have a nutrition program to follow?

I hope that I am getting you to really think about your health and fitness goals for 2012. It is almost here!

Committed to your fitness success,

As you start looking online for the ultimate weight loss tips, tricks and diets you will soon see everyone has something different to say.

Losing weight can be as easy or as complex as you want it to be.

Some people have a extremely difficult time losing weight and others seem to be able to drop the weight with remarkably little effort.

Whatever your personal reason for wanting to lose weight is, I commend you for taking steps to better yourself.





Here, are some time tested tips for losing weight


1. The most important thing you need to keep in mind when you determine your goals for weight loss that you have to be realistic.

Set goals that you can obtain and once you hit them you can always raise the bar.

This is a great way for you to be able to keep your enthusiasm and move up while you are on your way to a thinner and sexier you.












2. Make an appointment with a Naturopath MD.


Speak with him or her about your long-term weight loss goals and exercises that are safe for you to do. Your doctor will take into consideration any medical conditions you have and medications you might be taking to determine the safest method for you to lose the weight. It also a good idea to have your blood work checked.


3. Meet with a fitness Professional develop an exercise routine and stick to it.


Do not over do you’re exercising because you will be more likely to become overwhelmed and frustrated. This can lead to the end of your enthusiasm for weight loss.

It’s best to not to go into a weight loss program if you are going to destroy the plan before you begin! Go at it slowly and improve properly to avoid burn out!

4. Take a weekly Journal of everything you eaten for at least a week before you start a new diet.


This will help you to see what you’re eating habits are, and your Nutrition Coach can detect patterns you have and help you fix them.

Once you see where you are going wrong you can change what you are doing.

However, you should continue to write down everything you eat once you have started the diet as well for accountability.

5. Do not totally forget about the sweets you love.


If you have a hankering for a particular sweet, go ahead and have it.

Once in a while is okay!!

Allow yourself to have a sweet once a week you will find that it is not as difficult to stick with the diet as it is if you say good-bye completely to junk food.

Just make sure you work out a little longer on the day you have the sweet and reduce the amount you would normally have in half.

Eat it slowly and thoroughly chew it.

You will find this to be a great way to satisfy your craving.

Following these tips for losing weight should help you stick to your guns and stay true to your diet.

Weight loss is a process that requires dedication and commitment.


Once you know this is what you want, you can devote yourself to becoming happier and healthier. Find an accountability partner. Join a fitness club.


Remember before starting any new exercise or endurance training, or diets it is best to discuss these options with or trusted fitness expert.

Your’e in Charge

Success often comes to those who dare to act.  It seldom goes to the timid who are ever afraid of the consequences. There may be many aspects of life that you do not have direct control over, but what ends up in your mouth is not one of them! Exercise your right to choose wisely and your body and waistline will thank you for it. So here’s my Nutrition tip of the day to help you get RIPPED:

  • If it’s a vegetable and its green… eat it. And it’s
    best if you eat it raw.
  • If it’s an animal that walks, runs, flies or swims…
    or was GOING to be an animal that walks, runs,
    flies or swims… then you can eat that, too.


Anything that does not fall into those two categories…

Do NOT eat it!

Here are other examples of what you CAN eat?

CATEGORY 1:  If it’s a vegetable and its green… eat it.

And it’s best if you eat it raw.


This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Spinach
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Lettuce
  • Turnip greens
  • Green peppers
  • Green beans

OK, I admit… not the most exciting stuff to eat. But stick with it. If you eat it fresh and raw, you’ll acquire a taste for it and after a while, you’ll find yourself enjoying it and actually CRAVING it.

If you just can’t stand the taste (or lack thereof) put a little organic salad dressing on it, like Newman’s Italian or something like that. But don’t overdo it… you only need a LITTLE to give it a little more flavor.

CATEGORY 2: If it’s an animal that walks, runs, flies or swims… or was going to be an animal that walks, runs,flies or swims… then you can eat that, too.


This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Beef                             
  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Fish
  • Seafood
  • Eggs


Here’s a typical “get ripped” meal:

  • Beef – portion size approximately the size of the
    palm of your hand.
  • Fresh, raw, preferably organic spinach – portion
    size… as much as you want!

Repeat every 3 to 4 hours while you’re awake using different foods from each category to prevent boredom. It really is that simple. After just a few weeks, not only will you LOOK and FEEL a lot better… you’ll probably be a lot healthier, too.

Give it a try for 6 to  8 weeks or so and let me know how it goes.


For those of you who know me! Know that 2011 was a crazy year and I wondered how I would look at 2011. What a nice surprise to find in my email this awesome award:

Burn Fat watching you’re Reality Shows!!!!

One of the best ways to improve your body composition is by increasing lean muscle tone. When it comes to increasing muscle tone resistance exercise is the king.


It’s well-known that people who challenge their bodies with resistance exercises have more muscle than those who only use light weights and easy exercises. And, depending on the diet and other daily activities, these people often have less body fat.

Challenging resistance exercises improves your body composition by stimulating muscle Protein synthesis pathways and enhancing fat oxidation (burning) for several hours after your exercise session has completed.

Scientific studies have shown us that certain foods can enhance the amount of fat burned for energy several hours after the weight lifting session is over, and increase the amount of muscle synthesized.

Specifically, Whey Protein has been shown in many scientific studies to increase muscle Protein synthesis when take both before and after heavy resistance exercise. The best time to take Whey Protein for this effect is within 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after.

Recently, researchers from Michigan State University showed that when a whey protein was taken before a heavy weight lifting session, resting energy expenditure (REE) was significantly elevated for 24 hours compared to a carbohydrate-only supplement.

REE is an important measure of the amount of calories you burn in one day and accounts for about 60-75% of your total daily energy expenditure. Thus, if you have a higher REE, you will burn more calories in the day and store less of them as body fat.

The Whey protein supplement  delivered important  amino acids to muscle tissue during the exercise session which were used to enhance muscle protein synthesis for several hours after the exercises were over.  These amino acids help speed muscle recovery and prevent excessive muscle soreness so you can lift heavy and hard again the next day.

Overall, if you’re looking to increase the amount of calories you burn after resistance exercise, which helps you build more muscle and lose more body fat, whey protein is the right way to fuel your body post-workout. Take whey protein within 30 minutes before and after exercise for the best effect and watch those fat cells run away in fear.

With the fall and Winter Holidays right around the corner I thought I’d discuss some of the ways you can beat  emotional eating.

Understanding emotional eating and the triggers are just the first part. Now it’s time to break those habits. When you start to reach for food in response to an eating trigger, try one of the following activities instead.

Look elsewhere for comfort. Instead of unwrapping a candy bar, take a walk, treat yourself to a movie, listen to music, read or call a friend. If you think that stress relating to a particular event is nudging you toward the refrigerator, try talking to someone about it to distract yourself. Plan enjoyable events for yourself.

Don’t keep unhealthy foods around. Avoid having an abundance of high-calorie comfort foods in the house. If you feel hungry or blue, postpone the shopping trip for a few hours so that these feelings don’t influence your decisions at the store.


Snack healthy. If you feel the urge to eat between meals, choose a good-fat, and fresh fruit and, vegetables with humus or Guacamole dip .

Eat a balanced diet. If you’re not getting enough calories to meet your energy needs, you may be more likely to give in to emotional eating. Try to eat at fairly regular times and don’t skip breakfast. Include foods from the basic groups in your meals. Emphasize whole grains, vegetables and fruits, as well as full fat raw dairy products and lean protein sources. When you fill up on the basics, you’re more likely to feel fuller, longer.

Exercise regularly and get adequate rest. Your mood is more manageable and your body can more effectively fight stress when it’s fit and well rested.

Try alternative healthy strategies. Sometimes simply distracting yourself from eating and developing alternative habits is not enough to manage the emotional distress that leads to excessive eating. To more effectively cope with emotional stress, try relaxation exercises, meditation, yoga and individual or group counseling.

These techniques address the underlying emotional problems which are causing you to binge and teach you to cope in more effective and healthier ways.
