“I work out and I’m pretty fit. So why don’t I look like it?”

If you’ve done high intensity workouts until you’re blue in the face, you still might not have abs or the chest, back, or arm definition you want.

At the same time, you demand variety and fun from your workouts. Doing the same push pull split like the billions of gym goers out there would spin you into mind-numbing boredom. There are only so many podcasts you can listen to when grinding out workouts you don’t enjoy – even if it got you shredded.

What if you could follow a proven plan to look sexy – without the boredom of repetitive workouts?

The formula for a great bodybuilding plan isn’t a secret. In the 90’s, Charles Poliquin changed the fitness game with German Body Composition, a method of strength training with lots of time under tension and decreasing rest. In my own journey through bodybuilding and weightlifting, using these methods along with simple changes to my nutrition was the game changer that helped me drop a ton of body fat and get ripped for the first time ever.

Over time in my decades of coaching, I repeated this method with great success for a number of my clients. But because classic German Volume Training demands a lot of focus combined with challenging strength work, it is unsustainable on its own for a long period of time. Even the most dedicated clients got hungry for a change once they achieved their aesthetic goals – and I experienced the same during my own training, even while appreciating how potent these methods are for changing body composition.


Changing the way your body looks – while still getting stronger and still enjoying your workouts – demands the best of both bodybuilding and functional fitness. I saw a need to combine elements of Functional Bodybuilding for variety and athletic performance with German Body Composition for aesthetics.

Introducing Functional Body Composition

If your goal is muscle mass and definition, this program gets straight to the point with the specific recipe for success. Detailed strength sessions will take you far further than a class that aims to do “a little bit of everything” all in an hour.

“Isolation work? Yeah I should do some of that…”

Typical classes or functional fitness workouts will underscore isolation and accessory movements in favor of performance. But this type of strength work will not only improve your body’s appearance, but help you stay out of injury by building stability and control in your movement. Instead of tacking on accessory work when you have a bit of time here and there, every element of Functional Body Composition is designed to get you jacked – and keep you moving well.

I am loving body comp! It has been a god send while healing a back injury, and right before beach season! Let’s go!


“My lean body mass goes up first time in years -> Body Comp freaking works!”


“I’m seeing positive changes in my physique across the board. Will definitely be purchasing the 2.0 program.”


Bodybuilding doesn't have to be boring

If you tend to find bodybuilding boring, fear not! The strength sessions will demand your focus, but the warmups and muscle endurance work use the Functional Bodybuilding approach to give your brain a tasty snack and break up the demands on your body. The overall design will challenge your strength, and balance your session to leave you feeling amazing when you walk out the door and looking forward to your training tomorrow.
