About This Class

Welcome to the first class in the Physique Mastery Boot Camp series!

This course is designed as a crash course that touches on all the fundamental knowledge necessary to achieve physique mastery.

What is physique mastery?

It's the ability to master the aesthetics of the body through strategy and execution in both training and diet. It's mastery over fat burning, muscle building, and athletic performance. Examples of physique masters are fitness athletes, bodybuilders, models and the like. Having a great physique is their profession, so it’s critical for them to know the ins and outs of the body in order to strategize and build competition, award-winning physiques.

Now you might be thinking “but I’m no competitive fitness athlete, I just want to lose weight and look good naked! I don’t need to learn this stuff!”

True, you may not be a competitive figure competitor, but why wouldn’t you want to learn applicable knowledge and skills from the top physique masters in the world to achieve the body you want? Wouldn’t you want to learn how to make money from Warren Buffet? Or how to write catchy radio music from Maroon 5?

The knowledge contained in this course series will teach you the strategies on how to achieve the body of your dreams and the why behind the methodologies. Every strategy taught in this course series originates from the inner workings of our physiology, so you’ll know everything is based on actual science, not conventional wisdom, pseudoscience, or hearsay. 

Now, you probably already know that to change your physique, you need both training with intent and nutrition with purpose.

The first half of this series will focus on the more crucial of the two: purposeful nutrition. That is the key that has the BIGGEST impact on achieving physique mastery and MUST be mastered to achieve the body of your dreams. This is why we will focus on learning this aspect first.

Purposeful nutrition is essentially eating certain foods in certain amounts to get the nutrients your body needs to achieve a particular purpose or goal. It is the foundation of both weight loss and muscle building. So, the first step to physique mastery and getting that dream body starts with what you eat and how much you eat every day.

In lieu of that subject, the first class in this series will be centered on discussing the ins and outs of counting calories and balancing macronutrients. We’ll start with the basics of the basics by defining what a calorie is and explaining the use and metabolism of the three macronutrients: fat, carbs, and protein.

In this class you’ll learn how to estimate your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and you total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) in order to determine your calorie needs based on your unique metabolism. Additionally, we will go through how to determine your macronutrient breakdown and needs in a typical, average day.

Not only do you need to know what and how much to eat to be able to add slabs of muscle to your frame or burn the belly fat to bring out those toned six pack abs, but you need to be able to track it all. You’ll learn of some free resources available that will allow you to easily track your calories and macros consumed daily.

Your project for this class will be to calculate your own BMR, TDEE, and macronutrient breakdown using a free, easy to use resource.

If you’re ready to start the journey of mastering your physique, enroll now. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Let's go.
