The shocking reason why you have flabby arms

To start, I want to extend my thanks to everyone who took the time to send in your questions, I’ll get to the answers in a minute, and tell you how to collect your program.

But first, I need to tell you what really shocked me, and I mean REALLY shocked me. Out of the hundreds and hundreds of people who subscribe to my email list, only 9 people bothered to send in a question and get their free program. ONLY 9!

What does this mean?

This means that the single most obvious reason that you have flabby arms, is because of your inability to actually do something about it.

It’s not because of genetics, diet, lack of exercise, ill health, lack of money (I mean come on, I am GIVING you the program for absolutely nothing!) or anything else other than the fact that you simply refused to take any action.

It’s as simple as that. I was offering a totally free program, no strings attached, no catch. All you had to do was submit a question, and you would get your program.

This is astonishing people, and it’s time for a wake-up call. You can sit there and complain about how things are day in and day out, but if you won’t get off your butt and do something about it, then you only have yourself to blame.


Ok, enough with my rant, on to the questions.

I have not altered these questions at all, they are exactly as they were sent to me. My answers are kind of long, so I’m going to split this up over two posts. We’ll start here….

Q: My question is I am 51 years old. What happens to all the flabby arm bits? Will I have loose skin or will it shrink back to what it use to be like? Regards Lyn

Well Lyn, what I am about to tell you is something that the plastic surgeons would not want you to know. Unfortunately, the media has tried to brainwash you into thinking that sagging skin is a result of aging and there is nothing you can do about it (except cutting it off with surgery). This is dead wrong. Most of the women I have worked with in their quest to eliminate sagging and flabby arms have been in their late fifties and early sixties, and not one of them had a problem with excess sagging skin at the end of the program.

If you exercise, hydrate yourself properly, and eat a healthy diet, the skin’s elasticity returns and tightens as you reduce the fat deposits surrounding the arm. Also, as you tone the muscles underneath the skin with the exercises in the Go Sleeveless program, you actually cause the skin to tighten further around your arms. If you just lose weight without toning the muscles, then you WILL be left with sagging skin. That is why Go Sleeveless helps you lose fat, but tone muscle at the same time. Doing one without the other will result in horrible results.

What happens to all the extra bits? Well, your body is in a constant state of ‘remodeling’ and cells are being destroyed and recreated every day. The cells that sit on your body are not fifty years old, even if you are. Quite simply put, your body metabolizes (eats up) the extra fat and skin cells and re-creates healthy new cells to put in their place, but ONLY if you provide them with the necessary direction by following a proper program like Go Sleeveless.


Great question Donna. First off all, if you haven’t already read my recent post on my story and how I got into this line of work, please do. It will explain a lot, and I think it illustrates very clearly that I once was in horrible shape myself, so I know what it’s like to be challenged with weight and health problems. But that doesn’t change the fact that I am a man, so what do I know about woman’s problems?

I guess the best analogy that I can give you is in the case of male doctors. Many women have male doctors, but what could a male doctor possibly know about women’s problems? A lot actually, because they have spent extensive time studying, researching, and working with women’s bodies. Some even specialize in this area and become obstetrician/gynecologists. It is very much the same in my case.

I spent 6 years in university studying human performance, exercise physiology and sports medicine, with a specific focus on women’s health and body issues. Since graduating, I have further specialized in this field, and I work almost exclusively with women. To be quite honest, most men are too macho to admit they need a personal trainer (they think they know it all already ;-)

I decided very early on in my career that I wanted to work with women because they needed my help more. Women have very specific challenges when it comes to getting in shape, challenges that men do not have, and so, this is who I have found I prefer to work with. With regards to flabby arms specifically, I have devoted a large part of the past two years of my life to finding a solution to this problem, because nearly all of my clients were faced with this challenge, and I was determined to help them. Through trial and error I succeeded in creating a program that worked incredibly well, and that program is now what you know as Go Sleeveless. I may not be a woman, but trust me when I say I know how to help women achieve their goals.

Q: My name is Bea and I am a 38 year old woman living in Norway. I am a single Mum and I love to get to the gym and work out and I do it 5 times a week. I have been overweight my whole life but I am quite fit and have plenty of energy to get me through long days. I eat sensible and when I started to work about a year ago, about 40 pounds came right off me, but now I don't get anywhere regarding my overweight and I find it very strange. Not a pound in 3 months. My question to you then is as follows: Is there any advice you can give a person like me that seems to stay the same weight no matter what I do?

Bea, great to hear from someone from Norway! It’s so exciting to hear that my help reaches women all across the globe! That is one thing that is so incredible about working with clients through the internet, you can reach anyone, anywhere.

Now, without getting into too much detail (In a private consultation I would gather extensive data on your history, what you have tried etc), the first thing that sends up a red flag is that you lost a bunch of weight, then it stopped. This is a classic case of hitting a ‘plateau’ or in other words, everything just seems to stop working. This is almost ALWAYS a result of following the same program for far too long. You need to shock the body into change, and then the weight will start falling off all over again, and keep falling.

I highly recommend you get yourself a new program and completely revamp the way you train. Many women are in your shoes. They feel fit and healthy, and they have lots of energy, but the body they see in the mirror doesn’t reflect that way they feel inside. You may feel fit and healthy, but when you look at yourself you see fat and out of shape.

Again, this is almost always a result of staying on the same program and same eating plan for far too long. What also interests me is that you say you have been overweight your whole life. I would highly suspect that you have a ‘fat’ picture of yourself in your mind, which tends to create a ‘fat’ picture of yourself on the outside. I spoke about this in more detail in recent posts relating to using self-hypnosis and subliminal messages to help you re-program your mental picture of yourself to get the fat to start dropping off again.

I would recommend paying particular attention to the mental aspect of your weight loss. A women of your age will have absolutely no problem losing weight as soon as the mental aspects are dealt with, and you are put on a more effective program. That's not to say that older women will have much more difficulty, just that at your age the results should come exceptionally fast.

So that's it for today folks. I will post the answers to the remaining questions in a couple days once you've had a chance to read and digest the information presented here.

Now for everyone who has submitted a question, thank you, and please check your email for your free program. I look forward to hearing about your imminent success!

Talk to you later,
