Spending hours on the treadmill or the elliptical can really cut into your free time, but people often worry that they’ll put on weight if they try to cut back or even stop completely.
No Cardio, No Problem will show you how to ditch the cardio equipment and keep your focus on the weights area without gaining fat or giving up your favorite foods!
About the Program
Less than five years ago, Von weighed 50 pounds less than what he does now. After years of constant research and experimentation with different types of training and diet regimens, he turned his body from ‘that skinny kid’ to one worthy of a fitness mag cover. But how…?
The fitness industry is awash with information that’s untested, unscientific and sometimes completely useless. Von’s done enough research to be able to tell the difference between information that is factual and backed by science versus information that’s complete BS. The former is all that makes it into his training programs.
But isn’t giving up cardio bad for me?!
Ever thought about how weird it is that a lot of people drive half an hour to get to the gym so they can walk on a treadmill for half an hour? This class doesn’t mean you’ll be giving up cardio; walking up the stairs at work is cardio, playing with your kid in the back yard is cardio, running for a bus is cardio. Let daily life handle your cardio and let this class handle your incredible muscle gains!
“I started working out with Von back in May 2013. He was my personal trainer for nine months and he has change my life for the better in my physical fitness. I’ve been in the U.S. Army for ten years and have never scored a perfect score on my Army Physical Fitness test. After working out with him he not only help me scored that perfect score, but he also help me set personal record in deadlifts and squats.” – Dexter C.

“First I’d just like to say Von is an awesome coach, I hired him back in August 2012. Over the months we worked together Von taught me how to be flexible with dieting, how to structure a quality custom routine, and inspired myself to become a coach. Through following Von’s routines I went from struggling to deadlift 185lbs with bad form to now deadlifitng 410 for reps with ease and great form. Benching 135lbs for 1 rep to 240lbs and squatting 155lbs up to 390lbs now. Most importantly Von made sure I had fun and enjoyed my fitness journey.” – Kyle B.
