How to Blowtorch Body Fat & Achieve Your New Year's Resolutions

Do you want to have your best body ever in 2007? Do you want to
achieve your goals in less workout time than ever before? And do
you want to workout with as little equipment as possible?

If you are interested in losing fat as quickly as possible in the
comfort of your own home, using simple workouts that can easily be
done first thing in the morning or after your children go to bed,
without endless hours of cardio, fancy equipment or expensive
supplements, then this will be the most important letter you ever
read in your entire life. Here's why...

If you've kept your eye out for fat loss articles in the past year,
then it's likely that you've come across the name Craig Ballantyne.
Craig is a fat-loss expert, publishing his fat-burning workouts in
national magazines such as Men's Health and Oxygen.

Craig has also created a trademarked fat loss system called
Turbulence Training. And as a fitness expert with a sincere interest
in your success for 2007, I've taken the time to evaluate all of
your training options to help you reach your New Year's Resolutions.

And you know what? After painstakingly reviewing the Turbulence
Training workouts and fat loss philosophy, comparing them to the
common long, slow cardio workouts that so many people are doing
(unsuccessfully, I might add), I've found that Turbulence Training
could be the most efficient and effective fat loss program on the
market.

With all of the "lose fat fast" programs and snake-oil supplements
out there, I have a strict criteria that a program has to meet
before I even consider recommending it to my friends.

But Turbulence Training is the real deal - after all, if these
workouts weren't, would the biggest fitness magazine in the world,
Men's Health, feature Turbulence Training workouts? Of course
not, they have too much to lose.

On the other hand, you have nothing to lose. Because not only are
his workouts proven by both research and experience, but you also
have a hundred percent satisfaction guarantee that you'll love his
workouts. Or just return it for your money back.

Let me tell you more about the Turbulence Training workouts.

First of all, they can all be done at home with a dumbbells, a
bench, and an exercise ball (a chin-up bar is also helpful for
those that are strong enough).

Second, thousands of both men AND women (yes, women too!) have used
these Turbulence Training workouts successfully to lose fat in a
very short amount of time. He's proven that you don't need to be at
the gym everyday for an hour or more. In fact, the Turbulence
Training workouts will only take 45 minutes, three days per week,
and you can do everything at home. No need for fancy, expensive
memberships, or long commutes to an annoying "mega-gym".

Turbulence Training is as straight-forward as any fat loss program
could be. There's no BS, no magic pills or powders to buy, and no
expensive gym memberships required.

If you've ever struggled to figure out what to do next in your fat
loss program, then worry no more. Turbulence Training spells it
out, workout by workout, exercise by exercise, set by set, and rep
by rep, for a full 16-weeks of advanced fat loss workouts. And that
doesn't even take into account the additional beginner workouts
that will help any newcomer get started on their fat loss plan.

How badly do you finally want to succeed this year? Maybe you got
off to a great start last year, but your momentum fizzled out
because you lacked the time to train 5 or more hours per week as
per last year's instructions. Or maybe you just got tired of doing
the same workout week-in, week-out, but your program didn't have
any variety built-in.

Well, all of those problems are fixed by the Turbulence Training
program. With all of the introductory workouts, regular TT bonuses,
16-weeks of advanced fat loss workouts, AND these 4 limited-time
bonuses, you could have enough workouts for over 6 months of fat
loss. Imagine how you'll look in 6 months if you lose a pound of
fat per week with Turbulence Training.

Wait, don't just imagine. Visualize. Believe. And then achieve.

The body you've wanted for too long can be yours, and in less time
than you've always thought necessary. In addition to all of the
workouts, you'll get Dr. Chris Mohr's TT Fat Loss Nutrition
Guidelines, and Craig will tell you the #1 secret for sticking to a
fat loss program.

Get ready to experience a new body thanks to all the inches you'll
lose, the pounds you'll shed, and the energy you'll gain in the
next few days, weeks, and months with a structured,
professionally-designed, fat loss workout that you can do at home.

With Turbulence Training's efficient and effective exercise
selection, and the use of time-saving, metabolism-boosting interval
training, you'll get all of your workouts done in 45 minutes, three
times per week. That's right, in less time than it takes to watch
an episode of CSI or Desperate House.wives, you can make massive
improvements in your body each day.

So here's why I'm writing to you today:

Craig is quickly becoming an international fitness and fat loss
expert. His on-line clients now span the entire globe, and he no
longer has space for new clients. And those that are lucky
enough to work with him one-on-one pay up to $150 per session for
his guidance through their personal Turbulence Training workouts.

But now the good news. Craig's put together the ultimate Turbulence
Training package that contains not only 16-weeks of advanced fat
loss workouts and 10 weeks of beginner programs, but he's also
added 4 new bonuses that are available only for the next three days.

1) 8-Week Turbulence Training Dumbbell-Bodyweight Fusion Workout

By combining a dumbbell exercise and a bodyweight exercise, you'll
be able to do the Turbulence Training workouts even in a busy gym,
or even faster at home if you use adjustable dumbbells.

No more needing to switch dumbbell weights mid-set. Just do your
dumbbell exercise and jump quickly into the bodyweight movement.

Just wait till you try these workouts. You'll be blown away by the
effectiveness of the dumbbell-bodyweight superset combinations. So
fast, so simple, yet so effective.

2) 4-Week Turbulence Training for Women Workout

With both beginner and advanced versions, this program serves as a
great add-on to the regular Turbulence Training program that
hundreds of women have already used to lose fat and sculpt their
bodies. All of these workouts can be done at home with a bench, a
ball, dumbbells, and your own bodyweight.

3) Nick Nilsson's "Best Exercises You've Never Heard Of"

The world's most innovative trainer is offering his patented "Best
Exercise You've Never Heard About" e-books as another bonus. This
is the first time EVER that Nick Nilsson has allowed this e-book to
be used as a bonus.

4) Mission Abdominals by Internet Fitness Superstar, Tom Venuto.

Tom Venuto has written the best-selling Internet e-book called Burn
the Fat, Feed the Muscle. And now he's allowing you to get all of
his secrets on abdominal training, covering everything from losing
the last bit of body fat from your abs to the best ways to train
your "core". Learn from the ab master about the best exercises for
your 6-pack.

But this entire package is only available for the next 72 hours. On
Friday, Dec. 29th at midnight, all four of the new bonuses will
disappear from the bonus package. Quite possibly, never to be
offered again.

If you don't pick-up this incredible collection of fat loss bonuses
today, you might kick yourself for missing out. This is the kind of
information that can take a fat loss program from zero to sixty in
just days, snapping you out of even the deepest, darkest fat loss
plateau you've ever experienced.

Success breeds success. If you start now, you'll be burning fat and
changing your body practically overnight. And that will give you
the complete motivation you need to keep at it week after week. I
bet you'll even reach your goals weeks in advance.

Remember, I only recommend the absolute best fat loss resources
that come across my desk. And today, that is the Turbulence
Training bonus package.

Simply go right here to get started:

Maximum Weight Loss in Ten Weeks

As a former fitness instructor for the Royal Australian Air Force, Gary
Matthews' Maximum Weight Loss program is the result of 20
years of experience in gym, training and consulting clients.

What is particularly gratifying about Gary's program is that it has been
adapted to address the biggest concerns of his clients (I'll
discuss this more in a moment), ultimately resulting in a
practical, "do-able" program perfect for those who require
results with a minimum number of training sessions.

The core philosophy of Maximum Weight Loss is that weight /
resistance training, not aerobics, is the key to successful,
long-term weight loss. Gary's absolutely right, of course, weight
training is the key. Here's why...

Weight training builds lean muscle mass: this leads to an
increased metabolic rate, meaning your body burns more calories
at rest. How can this be? Well, lean tissue, or muscle, requires
calories at all times (yes, even when you are resting). The more
lean muscle you have, therefore, the greater the number calories
you will burn sustaining those muscles.

Better yet, a session of weight or resistance training can boost
your metabolic rate for as much as 48 hours after the exercise
session.

Conversely, aerobic activity is an inefficient method of burning
calories, and does not lead to a significantly elevated metabolic
rate after the period of exercise. While one can't dispute the
cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary benefits of aerobic exercise,
it is not nearly as effective an exercise for weight loss as
weight or resistance training.

If you spend an hour on a treadmill, for instance, you may burn
about 600 calories. When you step off the treadmill, that period
of increased caloric requirement and elevated metabolic rate
ends. On the other hand, an 30-60 minute session of weight /
resistance training can result in an elevated metabolic rate for
up to two days after the session has been completed.

See the benefits? Click here to order:

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1938

This amazing book will show you:

The only exercises which will create a spike in your metabolism
for maximum weight loss!

The correct method to perform the Unique 20 Minute Workout, once
a week which will jumpstart your metabolism!

The visualization technique which will help you improve your will
power & motivation to obtain the results you're aiming for.

A Unique Fast Walking approach which will Tantalize and
Accelerate your ability to burn fat!

How to preserve your precious lean muscle which you need to boost
your metabolism and lose weight consistently!

How to start losing bodyfat after your first 20 minute session
instantly! Unlike other programs, you don't just lose glycogen
and water.

How to increase your daily calorie requirements by up to 15%,
allowing you to eat more calories a day. (No more hunger pains)

And much more. Click here to order:

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1938

If you desire to lose weight naturally, with no gimmicks. This
no-nonsense, invaluable resource based on scientific fact is an
essential must have.

Another great aspect of the program is that it will help you
identify which environments will be more motivating for you, home
or at the gym. Because I work in a fitness club, I have always
had the mind set that working out in a gym was always more
effective than in the home. I guess you could say I had
"blinders" on.

This book has opened up the realm of possibility that I can get
in shape at home as well if I wanted to. Plus, Gary actually
provides some at home exercises that are effective.

One of the best things about this phenomenal program is that it's
designed to help you achieve your results in just 10 weeks.

Special note: Of course, weight / resistance training offers
benefits as well -- heightened self-esteem, greater flexibility,
strengthened ligaments, and tendons -- the list goes on and on.

OK... but there is one problem with any program that preaches
weight / resistance training as a solution to weight loss...

Perception. Many people see weight training as something
performed by 300 lb. steroid-popping behemoths. They just can't
see themselves walking into a gym and "pumping iron".

Fortunately, that's just not the case anymore -- walk into any
gym anywhere, and you'll see men and women of all shapes and
sizes (including seniors), incorporating weight / resistance
training into their weight loss and fitness programs.

Sure, weight training can be particularly intimidating to women,
beginners, and anyone who can't march into a gym and bench press
300 lbs. But here's where Maximum Weight Loss really shines...

It's a very accessible program (don't let its relatively short
size fool you), offering a solid introduction (including photo
demonstrations) to the basic exercises you need to know about,
without overwhelming you with incomprehensible data.

Best part?

You only train once a week, for 20-30 minutes! (Earlier I
mentioned how Gary modified Maximum Weight Loss to address the
concerns of his clients. By implementing a single short, intense
session once a week, Gary's clients were able to overcome the
frustration of diminishing gains, as well as time constraints.

While not everyone can get to the gym 3-4 times a week, a single
session is well within the realms of practicality for just about
anyone!).

Aesthetically, Maximum Weight Loss is an attractive,
professionally formatted PDF ebook that's easy in the eyes, even
on smaller monitors. It's a quick, unintimidating read (as is the
accompanying Maximum Nutrition ebook, which also contains some
good info, including a great section on food substitutions).

Bottom line?

A solid introduction to the weight loss benefits of weight
training with "zero intimidation factor". If you're struck in a
rut and need a program that will deliver real results without the
treadmill, check out Maximum Weight Loss...

Are you serious?

*** TIME-SENSITIVE MESSAGE ***

December 21, 2006

RE: A 'guaranteed' way to shed more
fat in 30 days than you have in
30 months


Do me a favor...

Look at today's date.

Then, count forward to February 1st, 2007.

What do you come up with? Well, unless
you're reading this email late, you'll come
up with about 6 weeks.

*** But, do you know what these 6 weeks
REALLY are?

I'll tell you -- they are the 6 weeks that
MOST people experience the greatest
amount of fat-storage "hormone"
production.

Ugh!

What do I mean?

Well, all that food that most of us eat in
November and December triggers the
body to "rev up" the fat-storing hormones.

Your body now thinks it is supposed to
cram as much -fat- as possible into your
fat-cells.

So, not only do you keep the bodyfat
you may have put on during the last
two months of the year...but...

*** You now have your fat-storing
engine on "maximum"...

This is why most people gain more
bodyfat between November and
February than the other 8 months
'combined'.

None of that appeals to me. How
about you?

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1753

SO, here's my question:

--- > Are you serious?

Serious about creating a new body for
your New Year -- and still enjoying
the Holidays?

Serious about spending the next few
weeks BURNING bodyfat...and learning
how to ENJOY the holiday 'feasts'
without wrecking your body?

Serious about changing the pattern
of "gain-weight-lose-less" in 2007?

You had to be somewhat serious to join
my list of super-achievers.

Now, I'm serious --

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1753

This is about a 'guaranteed' way to shed
more fat in 30 days than you have in
30 months.

Guaranteed.

I know what you're thinking..."But this
is the Holiday Season...I don't want to
think about this right now..."

Here's why you HAVE to...

1. There are about 100 spots left for
this -fully-guaranteed- program...and
they will all be history shortly. NOTE...
If you miss the window, you'll see a
"SOLD_OUT" message on the page...

2. You will have a "mental head start" on
2007...get in 'now', and you can enjoy
your Holidays even more, KNOWING
there will be a System and a team
'ready for YOU' come January...

3. YOU MUST decrease those fat-storing
hormones 'now', not later...now. This
can give you everything you need to
do 'just that'.

Okay, a few more things...

This means no "diet", no pills...but yes,
you will have to actually (gasp) work at it.

This is not a miracle.

But, this IS a "lifesaver".

This is the real-world team of "former
fatties" (as they call themselves) who
KNOWS what it feels like to be fat, sick
and tired.

Now, they know what it's like to have
magazine quality physiques.

Want to join them?

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1753

You have first dibs. You've been on my list
for a while now, and I believe in giving
my "home base" the top advantage.

Why does this matter to you?

There's only about 100 spots open.

Those will go so fast, it will make your
head spin.

Yes, the deal is 'that' good.

Go see it --

http://get2site.com/u.asp?i=1753

Sincerely,

Art Breshears

P.S. At least see the page...you'll know
why this "limited offer" bit is NOT a
marketing ploy.

It's simple logistics.

At least go see what I'm talking about...
and you HAVE to see the before/after
pics on this page. Wow!

Toning

Toning, Light Weights, & High Reps

By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
www.TurbulenceTraining.com

I guess you could say it is my mission to show people the value of intense strength training for fat loss.

Every month more research comes out to support intense training over slow cardio, and light weights. And each week, in real-life, more and more men and women (yes, women too!) see the benefits of pushing themselves with strength training.

The evidence from research and real-life continues to pile up that you need to put down those light weights and cut out those high reps.

Take really light weights, add in isolation exercises, and repeat for a large number of reps. Do this for 3, 6, or 12 months, and you're guaranteed to have the same physique you have today. This approach just does not work.

You need to step out of your comfort zone with strength training.

Research has shown using a weight that enables only 8 reps per set results in a greater post-exercise metabolism than using a weight that allows 12 reps per set. And this was in women! So lifting challenging weights is not just for men, but also for the ladies.

Another research study showed that a 30-minute, hard total-body strength training session can boost metabolism about 36 hours. You just don't get that from slow cardio or light, "toning" isolation exercises, I'm sorry to say.

But what if you are worried about "bulking up"? Just do one or two sets of 8 reps per exercise, rather than three or four.

Bodybuilders know that high-volume training builds muscle. But if you don't want massive amounts of muscle, just don't do a lot of volume. That's just one of the reasons I don't use bodybuilder workout programs for fat loss.

Another way to avoid "bulking up" while still boosting your metabolism is to use more bodyweight exercises.

As for exercise choice, say goodbye to biceps curls, hamstring curls, and triceps kickbacks. Seriously, I couldn't think of a more useless exercise for a fat loss program than triceps kickbacks.

Stick to full body movements. Use squats, lunges, split squats, pushups, chinups, rows, etc.

Remember, you don't have a lot of time to workout. So you can't be doing bodybuilding splits from the 80's that call for three exercises for the long head of the triceps, and two exercises for each of the anterior, medial, and posterior deltoid.

That's just not possible in the real-world. A pushup trains almost all those muscles, and more. It works your abs, chest, triceps, and shoulders. That's the type of exercise that is going to help you get more fat loss results in less workout time.

I train in the concept of a short time frame. That is, anyone that wants to use my programs has less than 3 hours per week to devote to structured exercise. So there just isn't much room for isolation training in that time frame.

But training should be fun too, and adding some curls as a reward for completing a hard workout is fine, but only if you want to. You don't need those types of exercises to get results.

But remember, isolation exercises are not actually going to burn fat, but they can build muscle and help you sculpt your body. Here's the list of methods that lead to fat loss, in order of importance:

i) Nutrition
ii) Burning calories with interval training
iii) Burning calories due to an increased metabolism from interval training and strength training (with multi-muscle movements)

As long as you understand that nutrition is the most important factor in fat loss, and that strength training is essential for sculpting your body, than you will have realistic expectations of success - based on how well you commit to each process.

"I am a 44 year old mother of 2. I have been struggling for the last 8 years (since my youngest child was born) to return to my toned shape. Nothing has worked for me until giving TT a try. After spending hours upon hours in a gym and spending way too much time running and doing other things that will eventually wear out my joints, I gave in and decided to accept that I should age gracefully. NO WAY! I decided to try TT and cannot believe the results. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. It can truly change your attitude and life."
Lisa DiDonato

"I purchased the TT training manual about a month ago and have been following it ever since. It makes so much sense and i really enjoy the different workouts so never get bored the body weight workouts are cardio in disguise as i find i burn just as many calories if not more from a BW session as i do with the TT cardio session. I am sore in places i have never been sore and find i push myself just to prove i can do the moves and love it. From an aussie that was looking for something other than just another weight workout with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and i have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
Kelli Tomkins, Australia

"I am actually getting twice the results in half the time. As a serious gym junkie with little imagination finding your workouts has been a welcome breath of fresh air. I no longer feel bound to the gym struggling for the smallest result. My body and I are in this together now. Your workouts are interesting and make me feel strong in practical ways. It's more like a game of testing my capabilities, not another boring workout. On top of that I can't praise your customer service highly enough, you have been amazing! I never expected such quick personal responses to my emails. For the price I paid, I have received so much more than I anticipated. Many thanks and all the best."
Heidi Sinclair

"Craig, got my 6-week bodyfat test lost 10lbs of fat and gained 6lb of muscle, im proving you can lose fat and gain muscle at the same time with your TT workout system, and nutrition plan."
Desmond Hardison, NV

"Hi Craig, I am enjoying Turbulence Training. I am a personal trainer, so I've incorporated much of it into my sessions. Though I used some philosophies from TT, your program has added a world of new ideas, methods, and techniques to my client sessions. And for that, I thank you so very much. Even my wife loves it, ha! So much more to read and implement, so TT reading will keep me busy for many months to come. Make it a great day!"
