Another 4x4 Fatloss Tutorial Video

Yesterday's video on my new 4x4 program proved to be very popular with over 500 views in the first few hours of upload and a stack of great emails telling me how effective the workout was so I thought I'd give you another sneaky-peek at one of the instructional videos that accompany the program.

In this video I'm instructing the correct technique for the squat and the kneeling pushup... check out the scenery!

P.S - Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think of the videos... after all, I created them for you! :)

Try This New 4 Minute Workout If You're Serious About Getting Into Great Shape!

My wife Deana and I just got back from Thailand where we were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary by staying at the beautiful Ryavadee resort in Krabi (

While we were there though, we did a ton of filming for my new 4x4 workout system that I'll be releasing in just a few weeks in time for the summer 'silly season' where everyone will be working their butts off (literally) to get in shape in time for their vacations.

I'm really excited by the 4x4 system as it has turned out to be one of the fastest fatloss programs I've ever created, with just 4 four-minute workouts a day providing results above and beyond the typical 'marathon' hour-plus workouts that most people are using.

In fact, during the one week that we were away, Deana dramatically changed shape, lost tons of fat and got really fit... in just 16 minutes a day!

It sounds impossible but really, the program is truly phenomenal.

To prove it, I'm adding one of the 'easy' workouts here for you to try.

It's just 4 minutes long and uses a simple 'Tabata' format that I call 'Meltdown Training'. This means that you perform 20 seconds of activity followed by 10 seconds of rest, back-to-back for 4 minutes.

Doesn't sound too bad, right?

Try it!

I think you'll be surprised. VERY surprised.

And imagine too that this 4 minute workout is just ONE of four that you'll be completing today, with each targetting a different area of the body.

Powerful stuff indeed!

Watch the video, try out the workout and then drop me a line here on the blog to let me know how you found it. (If you're really game, try four of these workouts today!)

But don't say I didn't warn you... It's tough stuff : )

Your 15 Minute A Day Beach Body Plan

Can you believe it?

April is here already!

Easter of over spring is... springing and winter is (allegedly) on the way out.

If you’re like most people you’re probably already picking out your holiday clothes and thinking ahead to when you can finally hit the beach, soak up some sun and get some well earned R and R.

But then it hits you. Sun, sea and sand all equal skimpy clothes and to make the most of those you’ve gotta have a body to go with them!


Baring our all on holiday is often a terrifying prospect for many of us.

If you feel self-conscious about your hip, thighs, stomach or indeed anywhere then it’s likely that your holiday will be spent in a mild (sometimes not-so-mild) state of paranoia that can actually detract from your enjoyment of your time away from work.

Instead of relaxing and enjoying your freedom you’re doing the ‘does my bum look big in this?’ thing.

Does this sound familiar to you? If it does, you’re not alone. But what can you do about it?

Well, there are plenty of things that you can do if you’re willing to put forth a little effort over the coming weeks. No, strike that. You’ll have to put forward A LOT of effort if you’re going to pull this off in time.

[Hey, don’t blame me! It’s not my fault that you’ve overeaten and sat on your bum all winter!]

First of all, I want you to take out your diary.

Starting TODAY I want you to find at least 15 minutes EACH DAY where you’ll be able to carry out your conditioning programme. Actually make the effort to put this time into the diary just like you would for any other appointment. In fact, this is more important than any other appointment because it’s with yourself.

If you have a mobile phone with a reminder on it then programme your appointment there too. In fact, write this appointment down in as many places as you can so that you can’t accidentally-on-purpose forget to exercise.

I think you get the idea by now. We’re placing MASSIVE priority and importance upon these appointments. If we don’t, they simply won’t happen!

I can hear some of you saying ‘but I really don’t have the time to do this everyday!’ To that I say ‘Rubbish’.

If you can’t even find 15 minutes then you’re simply not trying! 15 minutes is the MINIMUM amount that you’ll need. Ideally it’ll be twice this amount.

Next, go to your food cupboard and get rid of all of the processed food that you’ve been storing up. If it’s got an ‘E’ or a number in the ingredients list it’s outta there.

(But you know this already because you're following the elimination diet right?)

From now until your hols you’ll be consuming only ‘real’ food. Any meat, any veg or any fruits as long as they aren’t preserved in any way.

Why? The preserving processes that are used on foods make them ‘anti-nutrients’ with many of them having similar properties to modern plastics. These foods wreak havoc on the digestive and immune systems and can lead to overeating and increased fat storage.

Cleaning up your diet, even without restricting your calorie intake is a fantastic way to change your appearance. After all, we’ve all heard the old adage ‘you are what you eat’ haven’t we?

And now for the actual workout.

I know what you’re thinking.

‘How can I possibly make a difference in just 15 minutes a day?’.

Sounds a bit like one of those dodgy infomercial promises doesn’t it? Well sure, if I were promising results without effort but that’s not the case here. In fact, you’re going to have to put forward LOTS of effort to make this work. We’re talking consistency AND intensity here, which is normally what’s missing in most people’s programmes.

[Note: I’m assuming that there are no orthopaedic or medical problems present. If there are then you should consult your primary healthcare provider or a certified personal trainer before commencing the programme]

Day One

Warm up with some brisk walking, stair climbing or skipping for about 3 mins.
Perform the following circuit for 20 seconds of each exercise with 10 seconds rest:

1. Squats
2. Shoulder Presses
3. Abdominal Curls
4. Lunges
5. Pushups (or kneeling variation)
6. Towel Rows

Abdominal Curls Instruction Video

Lunge Instruction Video

Pushup Instruction Video

Row Instruction Video

Repeat the circuit two to three times. (this is less than 10 minutes!)

Now, be sure to build up to this, so don’t go all out for the first couple of workouts. However, intensity is important so as soon as you feel able you should really start putting forward as much effort as you can into each 20 seconds.

At the end of the circuits, stretch out each muscle for about 30 seconds.

Day two

This is your CV day.

But it's not your 'typical' cardio training.

Instead of plodding away for 20-30 minutes in long, slow, boring cardio, I want you to choose any two or three activities from the list below and perform 2-3 minute ‘bursts’ of high effort. Rest for a minute or two in between and then move onto the next activity.

Power Walking
Stair Climbing
Martial arts punch and kick combinations

Or any other CV activity that you may enjoy.

By the end you should be breathing heavily, you should be feeling fatigued and yes, you should be WANTING to stop.

If you feel that you could do it again then you've just not worked hard enough.

Now, I'm not saying that you should go for the old 'no pain, no gain' style of training but I AM saying that you should be breathless and a little uncomfortable in the lungs.

Why? Because this style of training will put a greater post exercise demand on your body than long, slow steady training and , as such, you'll burn more calories both during and after the session.

That's it!

Simply alternate these two days between now and your holiday. If you feel that you may be overtraining or not recovering then add a third day where you simply stretch out your tight or sore muscles to aid their recovery.

You may be thinking that this approach sounds too simple to yield any significant results but you’d be wrong. In fact, simplicity is the main reason that this approach works. And it really does work!

Give the programme a fair try and dedicate 15 minutes a day to these exercises and I guarantee you’ll be in far better shape for your holiday than you are right now.

The alternative of course, is to do nothing, hope for the best and spend your holiday worried about your wobbly bits.

The choice is yours and only you can make a difference so start now. Today!

See you on the beach!

Can I buy you a round trip ticket to Thailand, pay for your room
in a luxury hotel for 2 whole weeks and give you a 100% effective
blueprint for getting into the best shape of your life?

That's what I'm going to do for one of my Look Great Naked
Challenge participants when they sign up for the next challenge
before midnight tomorrow (friday 4th April).


Since I first announced the Look Great Naked Challenge just
over a week ago announcing that I'd be footing the bill for a
luxury 2 week vacation to Thailand for the most improved
challenger, my inbox has been full of emails from people asking
"Is this for real?" and "What do I have to do to get onboard?"

To the first, the answer is YES!

It IS for real.

The person who makes the greatest impact upon their body
shape and size during the 90 day program will win the trip of
a lifetime as a reward for all their efforts.


And, of course, I'll be making it really easy to get great results
by sending you daily emails, workout videos, audio downloads,
printable worksheets as well as nutritional and motivational
messages to keep you on track.

And remember, the training commitment is less than
30 minutes a day, all done from within your own home with little
or no equipment, yet the results you'll get will be out of all
proportion to the time you'll have to spend working on them.

Like Ann Komzolik:

" seven weeks I've lost 19 lbs and have dropped two
dress sizes - my waist is now 17cms smaller - I've never
felt so fit and toned - I'm the weight now that I was
when I was 18 "

Or Jill Coulson:

"....I've lost a total of 17.5 lbs and 7" from my waist..."

...and you could get this kind of result too... if you step up to
the challenge!

But look, your chance to enter the challenge and win the
competition ends tomorrow at midnight so you really need
to enter today. If you don't enter you simply can't win right?


Dax Moy

Look the next 90 days of your life are going
to pass anyway, right?

They can pass with you taking action toward getting into the
best shape of your life and standing the chance to win a
trip of a lifetime or they can pass in the same way that you
passed the first 90 days of 2008.

I know which I'd choose! : )

Leading UK Personal Trainer Raises Bar On Fitness Industry With World's First 'Achieve Your Fat Loss Goals Or We Pay You' Promise

One of my 'little projects'... no one's taken me up on it yet! : )

Fitness industry challenged to provide 'real results' as leading UK fitness expert offers world's first guaranteed results or receive double money back refund.

London, UK (PRWEB) January 26, 2008 -- Leading UK Fitness Expert, Dax Moy, today issued a challenge to gym chains and health clubs to provide 'real results' to their customers and clients or offer a full refund on memberships for those who fail to see a measurable return on the time, money and effort invested in memberships and fees.

In a dramatic break from fitness industry norms where money from memberships and personal training fees is routinely kept regardless of results attained, Moy has taken the bold step of announcing the world's first no-result, no-pay club model where members join in the certainty that results are never more than a maximum of 21 days away.

In fact, Moy has taken the concept a step further by adding greater incentive to both members and staff at his UK facilities by offering to pay all new members a penalty-fee if an appreciable fat loss goal is not reached by the 21 day deadline.

A full refund of double their fees if they're not a minimum of one clothing size smaller.

Moy, a regular guest expert on UK television and magazines said "With global obesity on the rise it's the job of every member of the health and fitness community to do all we can create effective strategies to help those who are seeking to lose weight, burn fat and look after their general health.

Simply setting up a gym with a bunch of shiny new gizmo's and gadgets and taking money from those who live and work nearby is not enough to make a difference. We've enough evidence of that. Right now there are more gyms, healthclubs and personal trainers on the planet than at any other time in history and yet obesity continues to rise in spite of this."

He continued "If the fitness industry truly wants to make a difference to those who really need help then it needs to start selling results, not just memberships. A guarantee is just the thing to inspire confidence in all those who believe that they're beyond help and will show the public at large that the industry cares as much about them as it does the revenues it creates."

Moy, whose studios in Central London and Hertfordshire service all manner of clientele from pop stars to polar explorers, actors to athletes, soldiers and stay-at-home-mum's as well as those with medical conditions and disabilities is currently the highest paid personal trainer in the UK and attributes much of his success to his results-only approach.

"We often hear that people don't have enough money to become healthy but that's simply not true in most cases. People have money but they're afraid of spending it on their health and fitness because they're unsure of what their money will get them.

If the big players in the health and fitness industry were to offer a no-risk way of looking after their health gyms would be full all day long everyday and with the people who need it most, not just those who want to stare at their biceps for a couple of hours a week."

Asked if he believed anyone would take him up on the challenge, Moy said "I doubt it. 'Big Fitness' has got a pretty easy ride of it at the moment, making most of its money from those who don't even attend. This challenge would require them to actually provide a service to their customers rather than just a facility and I don't think most of them are ready for that."

With the fitness set to become the next trillion dollar industry, it will be interesting to see how it rises to Moy's challenge in the days ahead.
