It’s true, there’s a new site. We’ve grown, and, we even have some different objectives as a company. But we’re going to stay true to our roots and keep providing awesome information to all of you thinkers out there in the fitness industry, either personally or professionally, that have been on board since the beginning of Fitport, or even those that have stumbled upon this site more recently.

Christian Thibaudeau is an Olympic Lifter, Bodybuilder, and highly sought after Strength Coach. He currently writes for Testosterone Magazine, and has been pumping out high quality articles for as long as I can remember. As a fan of the iconic contributors to the field such as Mel Siff, Vladimir Zatsiorski, Charlie Francis, Fret Hatfield, Charles Poliquin, Pierre Roy, etc., I rarely find current fitness writers that bring something new to the table. Christian is this guy. Recently, he published a few articles covering a concept he calls “The Perfect Rep”, which is what I wanted to talk to him about today. He really unloaded some good info here, so enjoy.

So without hesitation I will go right into some questions I’ve had about the program along with Marc’s answers in RED. I invite you to comment on this post with any questions you may have about it as well and I’ll be sure to get the answers!

Marc, first of all thanks for taking the time to respond to these questions. I understand this program has been on the net for a couple of years hasn’t it? Have you had a lot of clients stick with this program all the way to end? What were their results? I understand diet plays a huge role but all things being equal what can a person expect, in the “jump up and down naked in front of the mirror and see what you look like” department? Have you completed this program yourself?

This is Part I of an article published at Metabolic Alchemy covering my popular circuit workout, Lose Fat Like You’re on Crack. In Part II (which should be published shortly), John Stone interviewed me about the program. After you read the article I would encourage you to check out the rest of the Metabolic Alchemy site, lots of great information.

First off, my apologies as I’m breaking blog-etiquitte (again) by posting a long article. But I wanted to run this anyway, as it’s one of my favorite interviews. Also, this interview was done two years ago, so some minor things have changed. Anyway, Nicole is a great girl with a ton of interesting things to say, so pop some adderall and dig in.

Nicole has a B.S. in Exercise Science, a Masters in Cell and Molecular Nutrition, and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Nutrition. You can find her name tacked on to quite a bit of published research as well as some various well respected texts.

Academics aside, she’s right in the heart of the physique game and has some compelling things to say. We’re hitting all of the hot topics of scientific physique enhancement and Nicole has brought some exciting information to the table. This is one interview you want to pay attention to.

Marc: As I’ve gotten to know you and seen what you can do for yourself and clients, it appears you’re pretty smart and you have some lofty goals. So, what’s with all this intelligence and ambition? You do realize you’re ruining it for thousands of low-IQ, attractive women trying to get by on just their looks right?

Jen: Ha! All I can say is that I am just me. I love what I do. I love training, I love nutrition, and I love the science behind it. I love finding information that makes me more effective at what I do, and allows me to positively impact my family, friends and clients. I am a doer. I don’t like to sit still for very long. If I am not engaged in something, I get bored. My life is very goal oriented, although knowing when to put it all down and relax is very key for me. Everybody has a limit; I get busy and stressed out too. In those cases, I simply let go and take time for myself, or give to whomever I’ve been neglecting. Life is too short to base happiness on any one thing. Obsession is only good if it is organized.

A 31 year old girl from Idaho Falls by the name of Jen Heath is starting to make some serious noise in the fitness industry. And not because she wears stripper heels on hardwood floors. Well, not only that. For starters, she’s a mother of four with her pro bodybuilding card, a sought after personal trainer, and a highly successful fitness model. She writes for multiple online magazines including Testosterone.net and Bodybuilding.com, and has a fan club rivaling that of Oprah, Brad Pitt, and Jesus combined. Recently she has even started co-hosting The Fitcast online radio program. So you’re asking, how does she do all of this every day, and not forget that she left her 4 kids locked in a hot car with the windows rolled up? We’re going to find that out, and much more…and we’re going to include some pics that might even turn George Michael straight.
