Who We Are?
We are Personal Trainers by day, supplement researchers by night. We are a small group with a client base of approximately 300 people who all have different goals. These people pay us great money to get them where they want to be and we take our jobs VERY seriously. Some of our certifications include Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Sports Nutrition Specialists, to name a couple.
As Personal Trainers, we have heard every excuse, seen every over-hyped fad product on the market, and listened to people explain to us science that doesn’t exist! Honestly, it’s one of the things that makes the job interesting. However, there is something sad about the fact that the average person doesn’t know how to take care of their bodies correctly and we hope that we can be the voice of reason for you.
Who We Are Not
WE DO NOT SELL FAT BURNERS. If you want to purchase a fat burner on the internet, we recommend that you buy from your favorite manufacturer directly.
Why We Do It?
First and foremost, we do this because we have seen firsthand the joy, the pride, and the sense of accomplishment someone experiences when they lose 20, 30, 50, even 100 ponds. There is nothing more satisfying than helping someone reach their goals. Through our interactions with our clients , we hear all the misinformation that people are led to believe. Similarly to how the military breaks down a new recruit in boot camp so that they can be their best, we too must start by saying “Forget everything you think you know” and let’s just start fresh! We hope that this site becomes popular and that people learn the difference between real products and internet junk so that when you go to your personal trainer in your hometown those personal trainers won’t have to spend a week going over why you’ve been wasting your money on products that don’t work.
How Do You Rank Fat Burners?
Our ranking system is based on what works! That’s it, that’s the bottom line. We try products for ourselves, we give products to our clients and evaluate the results (or lack-there-of).
We put our rankings on the site and allow our visitors to go through our rankings and tell us about their experiences with these products, and the result is the rankings you see.
We take great pride in our rankings. We believe that these are the most accurate and unbiased rankings you will find anywhere on the internet. We go to great lengths to make sure the results are not polluted by manufacturers pumping their products and competitors bad-mouthing products to help their sales – which believe it or not happens on just about every supplement site on the internet.
Internet Review Site Scams
NEVER BUY A PRODUCT FROM A REVIEW SITE! EVER!
Finally, we would like to take a second to address what we believe to be a serious problem – The Internet Review Site Scam. As you are most likely aware by now, there are many fat burner “review” sites on the web. These sites claim to have reviewed all the information, tried all of the products, and are therefore experts. They rank 5 products on their page that they will sell to you at an incredible price.
The reality is that the people running these sites are internet marketers and that’s it. They have no experience in exercise, nutrition, or supplements. Basically they set up a webpage, set up an account with an internet affiliate marketing company, and they start selling. They make money by taking a commission of each sale they make. So which products do you think they will say are “the best” or “guaranteed to work”? The ones that they make the most money selling! This can be very dangerous to you because there is no way to know where the product is made, who makes it, and what’s in it. What they do have is either a top Google ranking or a large internet advertising budget – or both!
The fact of the matter is it’s not hard to come up with your own fat burner product as there are many companies in the U.S. and abroad that will make you whatever you want. If you wanted to, you could probably set up shop in your garage and make them yourself. You would be better off going to your local gas station and purchasing whatever fat burner they have on their counter than buying one of these “internet” products. You will never find one of these products on the shelves of your local health store or supplement retailer. They only exist on the internet – where they can hide behind false claims and deceptive advertising.
As you should notice on our site, we do not sell products. Instead we refer you to the manufacturer to do your own research. We could just tell you to Google the company, but hey we want to help you out as much as we can! Full Disclosure – we are in no way compensated for our rankings OR for providing a link to the manufacturer. This website is a labor of love and it really doesn’t cost much so we’re happy to keep this site free and unaffiliated.
Would you trust consumer reports magazine if they sold cars, vacuums, and blenders? NO! The same thing applies to supplements.
Not all products are scams though. The Fat burners in our rankings are very helpful for losing weight. They are backed by study after study, clinical trials (by scientists, not Bob the fat burner guru), and University research. These are real companies whose products are taken by bodybuilders and other top level athletes in all sports.
We realize that to the average person it can be difficult to tell fact from fiction and that’s why we will point out not only the quality products, but also the products and companies you should avoid. If you are ever in doubt or have any questions, please contact us through our contact page and we would be more than happy to address your individual concerns.
