Favorite Success Quote

“In this age, which believes that there is a short cut to everything, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest.” – Henry Miller

Early Challenge

Michael was following workout routines from his friends or other people in the gym which led to insignificant results after years in the gym. Additionally, he was working a full time job while building muscleforlife.com and writing his first book Bigger, Leaner Stronger.

Ah-Hah Moment

Michael started reading published literature on health, dieting and fitness instead of relying on information from the magazines. He discovered that dieting and exercising boils down to science where you follow a proven formula that works.
