Summer is coming!


The first glimpses of Summer in Australia are starting to be seen as the clouds disappear and the sun starts to remind us how much we enjoy spending time outdoors.

It won’t be long before we are getting back into our speedos every weekend and hitting the beach.
This is the time to really knuckle down and put added focus & effort into your training and diet. You’ve still got 8-12 weeks before you need to be stripping down to your swimmers, so let’s make the most of them. We want you feeling full of confidence as you rip off your shorts & t-shirts and show the world how much effort you’ve put in to looking the best you can.


It doesn’t matter whether you have a rippling 6 pack, or massive arms, as their will always be someone leaner or bigger, just as long as you feel confident to get out and about over summer as much as you want, without body issues.

Winter is a time when most people stack on some additional weight, and regardless of your starting point, there is no reason you can’t improve within the next 8 weeks.

The first step is the desire to want to change.

We get a lot of messages from guys who want to change the way they look, and are struggling with so much contradictory information & opinions. Everyone wants to share his or her latest “miracle plan”.

Unfortunately there isn’t any one way that is better than everything else, so we will keep to our tried and tested methods, which we know to be based in fact. It’s not rocket science, nor does it need to be. As a scientist, I quickly learned that there are always lots of ways to interpret data based on hypothesis or theories, but the facts remain the same!

After 25+ years, I’ve learnt a thing or two about getting & staying in shape, and we will share this knowledge here over the next 12 weeks, so if you want to keep up to date then you can follow us here, or on our website.

NOH8 2 WIN


Chris and I were lucky enough to meet Adam & Jeff in Europe this year and participate in helping to spread the word in their NOH8 campaign.

For anyone who doesn’t know what it is, the NO H8 Campaign (NOH8 meaning "No Hate") is a charitable organization in the United States whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest.

 Given we are still yet to achieve Marriage Equality in Australia, I wanted to share this image with you and ask you to share it amongst your friends as well. At a time when our Politicians are deciding on whether to allow a conscience vote or not, we need everyone supporting the cause for equality.

Not only do we deserve Marriage Equality in this country, the recent Crosby Textor poll found that 72 per cent of Australians want same-sex marriage legalised, while 77 per cent think Coalition MPs should be granted a conscience vote, and yet Tony Abbott still remains on the wrong side of history.

It should be our right to marry whoever we choose, and we should never be made to feel anything less than equal in terms of the Law in our own country.

As an added incentive to share our message of Equality, if you share this post, you will go into our draw to receive a Lqd gift pack, valued at $230, which we will draw next Friday. Not that you need an incentive, but why not!

Anthony & Chris

Background: The NOH8 campaign was created as a silent protest through photos by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8 in the USA. Their photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest. The phrase refers to "H8" (leet for 'hate'), short for "Proposition H8" (pronounced "proposition hate"), a nickname used by critics of the proposition.
Both LGBT and non-LGBT people have participated in the NOH8 photoshoots.

Look The Best You Can


Our scrub has been designed specifically to rejuvenate the naturally occurring collagen in men’s skin. Unlike most other men’s scrubs, we use a dual action, combining both a chemical (12% Glycolic Acid) and mechanical (Micro bead) exfoliation.

Glycolic acid is one of the few scientifically proven ingredients that can penetrate the top layers of the skin and cause collagen regeneration(1) .We use 12% Glycolic acid, which is the highest level you will find in any product in Australia without going to a dermatologist. At this concentration it performs as a mild chemical peel, and with cumulative use can increase collagen production, improve skin tone, skin colour and reduce small scarring.

It’s not just what’s in a product that counts, but also what’s not in it. We left out known skin irritants, like sulphates, parabens, paraffin, petroleum derivatives, colours, fragrances and essential oils.

With regular use, you really start to see a difference in your skin! Try it for yourself, and if you aren't 100% satisfied, we offer a 100% money back guarantee. You can't get better than that!
