COMMANDO BOXING COACHING PROGRAM FOR MEN
Time-respecting, incredibly-effective, step-by-step boxing and military based total body transformation for guys. An infantry trained coach who's done it. Small groups of like-minded, motivated guys. Fat to burn, muscle to gain - and boxing skills to learn. You in?
In the Commando Boxing Coaching Program, I use boxing and military style workouts and proven nutrition strategies to transform the way guys look. They are all ordinary guys with little to no boxing or military training. They are busy with work, family, and life. They may even have an old injury or two. And after 12 months in Commando Boxing, they are healthier, stronger, and more ripped than they ever thought possible.
Commando Boxing focuses on one proven principle: its one you can use today, no matter where you're at, whether you sign up for coaching or not. If you want to transform your body - read this page from beginning to end because in it I will share this essential principle and tell you exactly how to succeed.

WHO IT'S FOR
- You're a male between 18 and 65 years old
- You're busy and want a time-respecting program that fits into your life
- You've got some fat to lose
- You want to gain some more muscle while getting lean and ripped
- You want to learn how to box and use military and boxing style training to transform your body
- You want a Commando Body - one that has very little fat, lots of muscle, that looks and works great
WHO IT'S NOT FOR:
- Women - I have a separate Commando Boxing for Women program.
- Boxers looking for skill training to compete. This training goes over fundamental boxing training to enable new boxers to use boxing and military style training in their body transformations. It is a useful program to get in incredible shape and increase your level of conditioning, but if you want to compete - you need a trainer to work with you in person.
- Bodybuilders, fitness competitors, or models who already possess a very low body fat Commando Body unless you're looking to add some boxing and military style training to your training plan.
12 years of infantry experience. 16 years of boxing experience. One goal...and one question...
In that time, the methods I've used may have changed, but the end goal has always been the same...achieve peak physical fitness.
Because of that, I get bombarded with one question constantly by friends, family, and people I run into on the street. They may not ask it directly, but they always want to know...
And it's a very valid question - and the answer is essential for any body transformation. People ask it for a variety of reasons:
- Out of genuine curiosity and desire to learn
- Because they're frustrated after trying many things that didn't work
- they're just plain confused and overwhelmed
- because they are afraid of screwing up
- they don't have the patience to figure it out themselves
- or because they can't figure out who is telling the truth and who isn't
I think that anyone who has tried to better themselves at anything has asked themselves "What Works?" many times in their journey.
And they've likely experienced the same emotions and feelings. I know I have. From trying to put on muscle, to training and completing in a 125km Death Race, to fighting my first amateur boxing match, to coaching, to writing, and now to starting Commando Boxing.
My answer to the question of "What Works?" is probably not what you're expecting me to say.
IS THIS THE ANSWER YOU THINK YOU WANT?
I'm going to tell you my actual answer, but first, ask yourself - if we met on the street and you could ask me "What Works?" - what would you want me to say? Perhaps...
- I take this incredible supplement that burns fat and builds muscle with hardly any time in the gym
- I was given a prescription (or not) for this miracle drug that gave me the body you're looking at
- I do a special exercise or training that hardly anyone knows about that gets me ripped when I'm working out and when I'm not
- I rediscovered a food that humans forgot about in their modern diet that regulates weight and solves every disease known to man too
Well, if any of that was the answer, then a lot more people would be in shape and looking good on the beach. The massive billion dollar nutritional supplement industry would be out of business and skyrocketing health care bills would be a thing of the past.
It still doesn't stop people from wishing, dreaming, and taking these "magic" pills or following "magic" programs and the majority of them have not changed their body at all. In some cases, it's probably worse.
AT COMMANDO BOXING, I DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY
I realize you probably don't know me, but if you've been following me at all on the web, then you know I don't preach miracle transformations.
I am glad you found Commando Boxing and do get to know me better - because you'll realize that I'm totally up-front and honest about "What Works?"...and here's the truth...
There is no miracle cure, pill, or routine that will transform your body. How you eat, train, and what nutritional supplements you take all play a huge rule in any body transformation and how fast it works. Of course, that means you do need to know what and how much to eat, how to train, and what supplements might help. And, I teach it all to you in the Commando Boxing Coaching Program.
But - knowing all of that stuff is not what is most important...
There is one thing, that if you learn it, accept it, and act on it - it will lead to a total body transformation faster than you can imagine.
Are you ready - here's that lesson:
"Those who experience the most success in all areas of life are the ones who actively seek mentorship and accountability."
Ensure you understand that - those who succeed find someone to show them the way and keep them accountable. This fact has been studied, proven, and validated.
Precision Nutrition is a research-driven nutritional coaching company and they did some testing on their thousands of clientele to figure out how much of an impact mentorship and social factors (external accountability, social support, etc.) actually have on a person’s ability to reach their fat loss goals.
They asked their clients to rate their happiness with their physique on a scale from 1 to 5 ranging from extremely unhappy to extremely happy and then compared those responses to what they knew about their clients to see where the linkages were.
The results were definitive. Fist, there wasn't a significant difference in nutritional knowledge between those who had achieved their goal and were extremely happy and those who hadn't and were extremely unhappy - they all knew what needed to be done - as they were all taught how to do it. The deciding factor was evident when they were asked if "they ever had regular mentorship (at least 3 months of constructive and impartial feedback and direction on a near daily/continuous basis) from someone who was in the exact shape you wanted to be in?"
77% of those who achieved their fitness goals and were extremely happy said "Yes" they had received regular mentorship. No one in the extremely unhappy category reported having any mentorship, and only 17% of those in-between had any.
That's significant and you should think about that if you're planning on going through a body transformation. Knowing what you need to do is not enough. You need to find someone who's done what you want to do and get them to guide you, coach you, and hold you accountable.
If you already have someone in your social circle that can do that for you - then use them!
If you don't - find one immediately!
WHAT MENTORSHIP HAS MEANT TO ME PERSONALLY
I have three examples to share of how mentors have helped me.
First - I struggled all of my teen years and most of my twenties to put on mass which was always a major goal of mine. Thankfully, I joined the Army (at age 27) and met some guys who obviously knew how to put on mass. One in particular, Ryan, changed my whole mindset of what it took to pack on the muscle. As we were both locked in the same basic training program - we worked out together, we ate together, and we pushed each other. After three months, I was the heaviest and fittest I had ever been and it's because of the mentorship that Ryan provided me.
My second mentor took a while to find. I became interested in boxing rather late at age 24 and attended a few gyms trying to learn the sport. Those gyms, quite frankly, failed - often leaving me to try and figure things out on my own. They certainly did not provide much assistance or help. Despite that - I still managed to muddle through things and pick up the basics. Eventually, I did find someone who was interested in actually coaching me and not simply collecting my money each month. Tate introduced me to a whole new world of boxing. I learned more from him in a few months than I did in the years prior and ended up in the ring fighting my first amateur match. He taught me what it was to be a boxer, to train like a boxer, and fight like a boxer.
The last story is a little more recent. Two years ago, I decided I wanted to run an ultra marathon and chose the Canadian Death Race - a 125km run over 3 mountain peaks in the Canadian Rocky mountains. You have 24 hours to complete it. While I did do most of the training on my own - I learned from my previous experiences that the fastest way to get ready for the race was to find someone who had been there and done that. I found Dennene who not only helped me in my preparations, but came out to the race to act as my support crew - something that is essential in a race of that length. I know that without her experience and guidance, I would not have finished that race. As it was, I did and became very aware of exactly how far I can push my body.
In every story you will notice - that my mentor showed me "what to do" much faster than I could ever have figured it out on my own - if I could have ever figured it out on my own. Without their help, I'd still be the 135lb weakling I was lifting light weights in the gym, likely have given up boxing, and wouldn't even be able to fathom what it takes to run 125km...
I know I have other stories in other areas of my life where a mentor has meant the difference between success and failure. I've been very lucky to have people take such an interest in me and I truly am thankful and grateful to all of them. Even this website and program are the result of mentors - without them - it wouldn't be here now.
Unfortunately, I know that I am somewhat unique in my experiences. Over the years and my time working with people online and in person it has become increasingly apparent...
Not every one has had the opportunity to work with great people who want to mentor them to achieve their goals - or even have support of any kind for that matter...
I get a lot of emails from people wondering how to do this or that. It's funny, because they are questions that back in the day, a guy like Ryan in the gym would answer. Us skinny out of shape guys would walk over to someone who obviously knew what they were doing and ask and often that guy would be only too happy to answer.
Not anymore... it seems more and more people are out there for themselves and people feel intimidated talking to others who might know what they are doing.
So what do we do? We all turn to the web and start researching through a mountain of articles and content trying to figure out what is true and what isn't. We find too much and we find contradictory instruction.
Don't you wish that you could simply ask someone - a real flesh and blood human being that knows what they are talking about and can make it easy to understand?
Don't you wish you could ask someone "What Works?"
THE COMMANDO BOXING COACHING PROGRAM FOR MEN: MENTORSHIP AND ACCOUNTABILITY
If you are fortunate to have a mentor in mind, then I'm encouraging you and telling you to take advantage of it right now.
I'm not joking. If you know someone that has done what you want to do, has been successful at it and maintained it, and is willing to coach you through your body transformation, then call them up, get together with them and get to work. Soak up every ounce of knowledge you can from them and put it into action. I promise you that that simple act will make all the difference in helping you achieve your body transformation.
But - even if you don't have access to someone like that - you do now.
It's called Commando Boxing Coaching for Men. And I created it so that I could be your mentor no matter where you are in the world - 24/7 - to help you make your body transformation.
If you want a Commando body - to be completely transformed with added muscle and less fat - in record time, then you need someone there with you every step of the way - someone who has helped guys just like you make their transformations.
That's what I do at Commando Boxing and I'm good at it. If you bring the desire and effort, I'll get you to where you want to be as fast as possible.
ABOUT THE COMMANDO BOXING COACHING PROGRAM
My program is different, so I think it's worthwhile to go into some detail to describe it and explain how it works the way it does. In short, I've developed a system (including boxing, nutrition, training, motivation, accountability, etc...) that allows me to work one-on-one with you no matter where you live to guide you on your transformation journey.
Here's how I'm different:
I start with a small group of clients all wanting the same thing - a body transformation. I am dedicated to making us a very close and supportive group all pursuing the same goal.
Every client gets an exclusive username and password to the Commando Boxing clients only website. It's your control panel where you login each day to get your daily workout, nutrition habit, and lesson - then off you go to make things happen.
I develop a boxing and military fitness training plan for you complete with all the resources needed to teach it and track it (video demos, step-by-step instructions, training schedule, private blog, support forum, etc...)
You will not follow a diet - you will learn to eat using the Precision Nutrition System that I introduce to you one small step at a time. Every two weeks you'll add a new step to your program so that by the end, the transition to eating to support your new body will have been almost effortless. This system is time-tested and proven to work and will stick with you for life.
LESSONS AND TASKS
You'll not only transform your body, but you'll learn why it is happening. Each week we'll cover a new topic in depth to help you understand the process. Each topic will have specific tasks for you to accomplish to turn the theory into immediate action.
Every day your control panel will have a small list of items you are to do that day including your workout, nutrition habit, and daily lesson. You simply mark each as complete once done and I track it - every single day.
BODY COMPOSITION TRACKING
Once a week we measure your progress. Sometimes you will simply step on a scale and report your weight, other times you'll take girth measurements or skin fold measurements. Don't worry - I give you detailed instructions on how to do this and everything is tracked and graphed online for you to actually see your progress. This gives me objective data - not just opinions - that I use to ensure you are progressing in the right direction.
While your measurements are important, it's more about how you look so we'll track that too. Every few weeks you'll take pictures and upload them (completely private) so we can compare to where you started. It's probably all the motivation you'll need to keep going.
MENTORSHIP AND ACCOUNTABILITY
Most importantly you have me there to guide you and keep you on track. My job is to eliminate distractions and get you to focus on what you need to do now so that your body transformation is a success. I'll be there to cheer you on, pick you up, or kick you in the ass - and you can be sure you'll need all of those at some point.
HOW DO I COMPARE TO YOUR OTHER OPTIONS...
Well Commando Boxing is unique so there really isn't much to compare it to - but other options you might consider:
Do It Yourself Option
And how's that working for you?
Don't get me wrong - when guys have a problem our natural inclination is to find a solution and do it ourselves. We tell ourselves that we don't need any help - we've got it covered.
So we start researching and reading and basically try to inform ourselves into shape, inspired by those one-of stories of guys that did manage to transform themselves on their own.
Unfortunately, those one-of stories are not the norm. For every one guy that manages to transform his body permanently on his own, there are 10 or 20 in the wings who failed miserably.
There's a reason for this. When you read and research and understand the theory and concepts of fitness you are training a part of your brain that has nothing to do with the everyday things you need to do to actually make the transformation. That pre-frontal cortex is great for thinking about stuff, but it's your limbic system that governs what you do. The limbic system is your ancient brain - the one that runs on instinct and evolved on emotional response. It's the one that will make you eat a tub of ice-cream or skip today's workout seeking immediate pleasure.
You have a limited amount of willpower and when it runs out, your limbic system will rule. You need someone to help you overcome your limbic tendencies and retrain it with immediate feedback and accountability. The good news is that once it's done, it works in your favour as easily as it worked against you.
The Personal Trainer Option
When it comes to body transformation - 95% of the personal trainers out there miss the mark because they know next to nothing about nutrition so even the best training plans are nothing more than wasted effort.
As an example, one study showed the effect of training - 5 hours a week - with a personal trainer. 1% body fat was lost over 12 weeks. That's dismal. With a combined training and nutrition plan, one can expect to lose as much as 6-12% body fat or even more in that same amount of time.
Unfortunately most personal trainers focus on the training and forget/are not trained in nutritional coaching techniques.
WHAT MAKES COMMANDO BOXING DIFFERENT?
Highly Effective Program Design and Coaching
I've been where you are and done what you want to do. I've spent the last 12 years in the Infantry jumping out of planes and pushing myself and my soldiers to ever higher levels of physical fitness. I've spent the last 16 years training for and coaching boxing. I've competed in ultra marathons, amateur boxing, military iron mans, a variety of physically demanding military challenges both domestically and abroad and know what it takes to make the kind of changes you want to make.
I've literally spent a significant portion of my life preparing to be your mentor - and now I can be.
Support from Peers
While I am here to provide mentorship and coaching, you start your journey with a small group of like-minded individuals all looking to transform themselves. That's an essential component of any success story. They say that you are the product of the five people around you - so surrounding yourself with people seeking the same goal is paramount to your success. You will lean on them as a source of support when you have questions, frustrations, or are celebrating small victories. You essentially get a new group of close friends.
With the other people in your group and me - you are never alone. We all believe in your ability to transform where other people in your life may not be. It's natural for friends, family, and loved ones to unknowingly sabotage your progress in order to keep you average. There are others who will be openly hostile and cheering you on to failure. That's why it's so important to have the group support you get in this program - people you can turn to when issues come up - and they will.
Sooner or later you will experience tremendous pressure to forget about your new habits, your workouts, or your nutrition habits and return to old ways of doing things. That's precisely when you need people who have gone through the same thing and emerged on the other side stronger and happier to help you see it through and you'll need to know you're not alone and that others are going through the same thing you are - the Commando Boxing coaching program gives you both.
Training and Nutrition (and More...)
I don't know why - but most weight loss or muscle gain programs focus exclusively on the training or what to eat - but they never combine the two. It makes absolutely no sense because both are essential in a body transformation. Focusing on the training without fixing the nutrition will yield poor results and vice versa (although to a lesser extent) by focusing on nutrition and excluding the training. I give you both - you get the training plan and you get the nutrition plan along with all the small life-changing habits, motivation, and tidbits you need along the way to realize your body transformation in the shortest time possible. I realize that sounds a little overwhelming and like a lot to learn, but that's why...
I make it easy..
I know that giving you a book with a training plan, eating plan, and hundreds of little habits to do daily will be completely useless to you. Human beings do not work that way - you'll try to digest all the information and end up putting none of it into practice. In the Commando Boxing Coaching program you need and get only one thing to do at a time. I determine what your focus needs to be and then get you focused on that one thing. It doesn't get any simpler. And when you've mastered that one thing - you'll get another, but only...
One habit at a time...
It's been studied and proven that when people are given one beahaviour to change they can do successfully do it over 80% of the time. However, when two or more behaviours are given to someone to implement their success rate drops to below 30% and each additional behaviour makes that success rate worse and worse. Even when people try to keep it simple on their own and think they are changing one behavior - like taking a daily multivitamin - they are actually trying to change multiple behaviours. Think about it - it's not just the act of swallowing the multivitamin each day - it's also the behaviour of selecting one, adding it to the shopping list, budgeting to buy it, buying it, getting it home and ensuring the supply never runs out to maintain consistency. What seems like a simple behaviour might not be so simple - so we need to break it all down into one simple habit at a time to ensure lasting change.
I teach principles and habits...
not diets and gimmicks. Because they don't work. When you learn principles and implement good habits your body will naturally change and it will be sustainable. I rarely follow any type of written diet plan - usually only when I'm experimenting with something - but yet I maintain 10% body fat year round and achieve remarkable athletic feats. That's because the principles and habits that govern how I take care of my body result in the body I have - it's a permanent solution - not a quick fix that can disappear with the next meal. I'll guide you through gradually changing your behaviours and implementing the principles and habits that will give you this kind of body as well. It virtually eliminates the possibility of failure.
I guide you to self-sufficiency
Don't get me wrong - I'm sure you are nice guy - but I don't want you as a client for the rest of your life. I want you to learn this system so well that you don't need me anymore and instead can go out and mentor someone else through their body transformation. When you reach that point, I'll even get you going with a business model much like this one and the online tools to match. Ultimately, I need you to control the process and believe it or not - you will - ensuring you remain healthy and in great shape for the rest of your life. And help others achieve the happiness you found along the way.
Daily focus on fitness
If something is important, you'll naturally gravitate to it everyday. Eating and drinking is obviously important and you do it everyday. Sleeping is important and you do it everyday. I want you to make fitness just as important and a habit just as stuck in your head as eating, sleeping, or drinking. And it can be done. You can't make fitness a 3 times a week affair. It's a daily thing - and things you do everyday will define how quickly and how far your body transformation goes. It's up to me to get you to this point and I will by breaking it down into habits that you are 100% confident you can implement that will build on each other until you reach the tipping point - that point where fitness is a daily part of your life whether you realize it or not.
HOW TO BE A PART OF COMMANDO BOXING COACHING
To be a part of the program, you need to apply for a spot. I accept applications on an ongoing basis and start a cohort when I get enough suitable applicants. If selected (and I do not select everyone...), I will send you a registration link via email where you can complete the payment and sign-up process. I keep group sizes small and I only accept people that I believe are actually ready to follow the advice I give them.
The application and registration process itself is simple:
- Click the “Apply Now” button. You’ll find one at the bottom of this page or in the right sidebar.
- Fill out all info on the application and hit save. Be sure to use a valid email or I won't be able to contact you - to let you know if you've been selected or not.
- If selected, I'll email you a link for payment and registration.
- Once registered, you'll complete a few basic tasks. After creating your account, I'll direct you to your private Commando Boxing Coaching homepage, which is where you’ll find your daily instructions.
- When we start, you'll log in each day and you’ll find everything you’ll need: workout, nutrition habit, lesson, progress tracking, private forum, access to me . . . everything.
Once you login, you'll easily find everything you need to do that day.
"How much does it cost?"
To work with a decent personal trainer (that knows both nutrition and general training) is at least $650/month.
To join the Commando Boxing Coaching program? $149 registration, $149/month. That's it.
And from time to time I run specials - you can see if one is currently by applying. You won't pay anything until you are selected - the application process is free.
The technology that exists allows me to monitor and adjust every aspect of your program for body transformation. Elite coaching is now affordable and available to everyone - and more effective than ever.
And you will get the body transformation you want -- guaranteed.
The Commando Boxing Guarantee: Do as I say and a year from registration, you'll be in the best shape of your life - or it's 100% free.
The fitness industry is the one place where it seems alright for people to pay for something and never receive it. I believe that if you invest in my coaching services, you should get what you pay for. I know - it's a ridiculous concept (sarcasm intended...)
I'm completely confident in my ability to help you transform your body - and you should be too. So, in short - if you don't transform your body - my year of services is free.
So we're clear - specifically - this works like this:
- You give me a year from the date you register
- You do what I tell you at least 80% of the time...
...you will be leaner, more muscular, stronger, healthier, know a few boxing techniques, and be more happy with your physique than you thought possible.
And if you're not, I'll write you a cheque for every penny that you spent - no questions asked - and you'll be on your way. I will do what I say in the year we are together and you get to decide if I did a good enough job. It's that simple.
See if you can get your local personal trainer to guarantee his or her results like that.
Bottom line: Do as I say and you'll transform your body. I guarantee it.
WHY I GUARANTEE EVERYTHING:
I guarantee everything I do because it's my job as your coach and mentor to remove distractions and make you focus on the one thing you need to do right now to achieve results. When results are guaranteed - you stop worrying and wondering if you made the right choice. Then you can focus on that one thing you need to do today - and that sense of calm and single-minded focus is what I need you to have to succeed. That one thing is to:
Login each day and follow the instructions
That's it. That's all you have to think about and a year from now you'll be completely transformed - less fat, more muscle, leaner, healthier, stronger, and know how to box.
A final piece of advice.
If you want to change your body or anything else for that matter - do yourself a favour and go out and find a mentor.
Lose the pride, ego, or any other factor standing in your way that is preventing you from seeking advice and getting help from someone who has been where you are, done what you want to do, and is willing to help you.
Find that person - and then listen to them..
I was lucky to figure this out a long time ago and it has resulted in amazing achievements. It will help you too. Be decisive and do it right now.
Your mentor could be a friend, family member, local guy at the gym, a coach in your town - it really doesn't matter. And if I accept you to the Commando Boxing Coaching program, I'm here too - if you apply.
No matter what - find a mentor - it's what really matters.
