Powerful Success Story

A powerful Turbulence Training success story...


"Craig you have literally been the driving force in my life to lose so much weight, eat the way I am supposed to, and feel better about my life. I started out weighing 250lbs, being sick and tired of being sick and tired and desperate without any light.  

I then stumbled upon you on the Men's Health and your workouts and articles looked so simple I was in awe.  Well, that was 60lbs ago, and now I'm 190lbs and feeling better about life, waking up every morning and enjoying my day without fear.  I still have a long way to go (about 20-30 more lbs) but because of my past success I have found so much strength and encouragement in my life.  

As soon as I wake up in the morning I read your blog because it provides so much encouragement and I say to myself everyday, "Wow, Craig really does believe in me" and I know I can do it.  Even your blogs of just a few lines have encouraged me to go throughout the day and make small changes in my life, so much so that I started my own blog just to track myself and have a visual representation.

I figure if it's good enough for Craig Ballantyne then it's good enough for me. So I started blogging at and I sort of hit a plateau right now for a couple of weeks.  I know I will push through and get through this though, with your help, and again I cannot say how thankful I am to you. If you are ever in Seattle, WA and would like a free lunch shoot me an email."

Hi Craig
Love your blog. Can you give us your thoughts on girls lifting heavy weights to obtain that lean, toned look?? I love the look that jessica beil and the girls on "the hills" have, but how do we get that? By lifiting heavy or moderate with more reps. A pretty general question id assume!

It all depends on the person. You can get that body with lifting, with kettlebells, or with bodyweight exercise!
