12 Weeks to Mental and Physical Strength

Change Your Mind- Change Your Body-Change Your Life Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, having the lean, healthy body you've always wanted and not having to

turn your life upside down to get it. Imagine having the energy to be at your peak from dawn to dusk, having the confidence to do all the things you've been putting off, having the certainty to make the right decision at the right time, and knowing that

you really do have the power to change- not just your body but anything in this world you set your mind to.

If this sounds unlikely, or even impossible. it's time you were introduced to Bill Phillips and his Body-for-LIFE Program-it's time you join those who have experienced breakthroughs with the help of his expert advice.

"While gaining energy and rebuilding my body were significant rewards, I realized those changes were just the beginning . My eyes are now open to the possibilit ies of change in all areas of my life. Now I can see a better and brighter future for myself and my family."

Hank Johnson Age 39 NASA Space Shuttle Engineer; Cape Canaveral, Florida "I admire Bill Phillips because he believes so much in what he is doing, and he has helped so many people, including me. The time I've spent with Bill over the last couple years has been tremendous for me. I feel better mentally and physically. I believe the more his message gets out, t he better off everybody is going to be."

John Elway Two -Time NFL World Champion "After completing t he 12-week Program, I not only achieved my physical goals, I rediscovered passion in my life. This became the primary driving force behind my success. I've become the person I've always wanted to be."

Russell Simpson, M.D., Age 47 Physician; Huntsville, Alabama "When I first read about Bill's Program, I felt a sense of hope I hadn't felt before. I was inspired to take the first crucial step-I decided to change. Within weeks, I began to feel better, look better, and peop le started to notice. After 12 weeks, I lost 30 pounds, three inches off my waist. four inches off my hips, and dropped three sizes. My life couldn't be better. I'm not settling for mediocrity ever again."

Christy Hammons, Age 24 Accountant; Lexington, Kentucky
