What’s up! Beau Morrow here…
Let’s get straight to the point: How does the military transform regular guys from flab to fit in just a few months?
Good question, and you’re about to find out.
My nutrition practice, and main fitness program MPT90, is centered around maximizing fat loss, metabolic acceleration, and muscle definition. Basically, I transform civilians into military shape.
Now, I’m a normal guy just like you, but I LOVE teaching guys how to shred fat and build insane amounts of muscle definition – outside of my faith, my family, and my business, it’s my #1 passion in life.
But why the heck should you listen to me?
Well, you don’t have to, of course, but over the past 10 years, I’m someone who has built an athletic, military physique while serving active duty in the U.S. Coast Guard. I’ve deployed numerous times out to sea on anti-drug missions, trained hard, and help coached my military brothers at all my units.
- Served as a USCG Health Promotion Coordinator.
- Became a Certified Personal Trainer via ISSA.
- Became a Certified Nutrition Coach via PN, NCI, and ISSA.
I’ve helped my fellow brothers and sisters in the service to transform and become better versions of themselves, and now I’m extending that out to those outside the military. I’ve realized that you don’t have to live in a gym to build eye-catching muscle or be on some fad keto or paleo diet to burn fat.
You only need to be taught how to use the SIMPLE and BASIC tools that WORK for the military. Bottom line, I’m on a mission to help individuals just like yourself reach military levels of untapped growth with confidence, discipline, and a ton of turned-heads!
But before all the military life and deployments, I had a much different story…
Just a few years outside of college, I was struggling to come to terms with who I was.
I had wrestled and played soccer in high school, and I had continued playing soccer in the summer leagues and throughout college. I was never ripped, but I had always had a lean body due to playing sports. But now my former college athlete body was gone, my sleep cycle was off, my nutrition was non-existent, and worst of all – I was unhappy.
I was working as an overweight third shift security guard, and I had settled into life after college. Because of my nighttime work shift, I was gaining weight and losing sleep at any alarming rate. The thing is, I wasn’t prepared to change. To be honest, I didn’t even know I COULD change. I thought I was stuck, and this was it for me. Something had to change. I knew I couldn’t stay unhappy, but I didn’t know how.
I looked at my job, thinking I just needed to get a new opportunity. I looked at different openings in the area, but the economy wasn’t good, and there were not many jobs for me – certainly none for my degree. My boss, a former military guy in the Coast Guard, suggested I apply at the local enlistment office. I had always dreamed of joining the military, so I went ahead and decided to try.
After talking to the recruiter for a bit, my application was processed, and I was in! And that’s when it hit me…There was NO way I could go to bootcamp overweight and out of shape.
I looked for a local gym near my apartment and bought a membership, but I didn’t know what I was doing. I stayed away from the free weights and the big dudes. I did what I saw everyone else doing and hopped onto the treadmill. I thought the best way to get in shape was just to run…
But I didn’t make much progress. That didn’t matter, though. Because something happened that changed everything – bootcamp. How does the military take overweight guys like me and whip them into fighting shape?
They take key elements of the training and information and implement them consistently.
We didn’t use a gym, we didn’t go on a diet, and as crazy as it sounds, we didn’t even run as much as I thought we would. I’m thankful for that, because I dislike running A LOT. The military has a way of making it all simple.
But why is that? Simple: the military can’t waste time trying to get you into shape. There is only so much time in bootcamp, and they also need to train you in other aspects of military life.
Put in another way; they have only a limited amount of time to prepare you, so they practice only proven weight loss methods to get you lean and strong.
I lost 20 pounds in bootcamp. In my experience, those who have succeeded and grown the most are those that have implemented the foundational aspects of military training in bodyweight, calisthenics, and HIRT (High Intensity Resistance Training – not to be confused with HIIT).
It’s not your fault though that you’ve been struggling and being fed myths and lies by social media about how to lose weight. They tell you that you have to be in a gym 24/7, that you have to buy hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of supplements, and that you have to subscribe to some Keto, Paleo, Vegan, or other way of eating.
Nope, you need none of that. Let me show you through my macro nutrition coaching. If you’re up for an intense workout regimen on top of that, you can apply for both my macro nutrition coaching and military performance training in the MPT90 program.
