“Today, my body is everything they told me it couldn’t be: strong, well-fed and well-recovered.
Subscribing to Paragon Training Methods workouts and being part of the Paragon community have changed my life in more ways than I ever expected.
…because of my genetics, overall health, prior injuries, and body mechanics, I’d never be athletic
…that I’d have to work out at least 5-6 times a week to see results.
…that I would need to spend hours a day in the gym
…that I’d never build strength unless I was a total slave to the gym
…that being over 20% body fat was horrendous, unhealthy, and something unacceptable and to avoid
…that to have the ideal body and perform well, I should eat ~1700 calories (or MUCH less if I wanted to be “lean”)
…that on my “days off the gym,” I still needed to be at the gym working out and doing “active recovery” (light lifting, skill work, accessory work, endurance training, etc)
Do you know what I figured out? All those societal expectations and conditioning are WRONG.
Over the past few years, my BS detector had been slowly increasing, but it wasn’t until I discovered Paragon Training Methods last October that I had the real “AHA!” moment.
I spent so many years trying to starve my body, trying to shrink myself, and trying to take up less space. Now I work out 4x/week for 60-75 minutes. I eat way more food than I ever have. I’m feeling insanely strong and smashing PRs weekly. And I finally feel good in my skin.
Thank you Paragon for FREEING me to be my baddest and strongest self!”
