Every man gets different results depending on all sorts of variables. Our promise is that, after 30 days, you will have established new healthy habits that last your lifetime (so you get an ongoing and increasing return on your investment in this program).
Play “full out” in the Man Up and you can expect breakthrough results like…
“I had put on some weight after the birth of my child, and I was definitely drinking more than I should have been. I was also very overextended and I was not good with routines; I would just do things as they came up.
When I did the Man Up, I lost 15 pounds and I’m continuing my weight loss today. I’m running at least 3 times per week now and I’m signed up for the Baltimore half marathon. I’ve gotten into much more of a routine schedule – going to bed at a certain time and starting my mornings right with a good breakfast. I’m in a good place with my relationship with alcohol. Plus, I’ve gotten a lot of comments from coworkers about how good I look, and I’m really excited to tell them why I look like this. They want to know if it’s some fad diet, but it’s just eating real food – natural, good, whole foods that we were meant to eat. I think it’s very fulfilling and satisfying and tasty.
If you have the mindset that you want to make some changes in your life and get healthy, then you have to man up and do it. With the support of the group and Lucas, the Man Up has been such a valuable experience that I’m probably going to make the commitment to do it at least once a year. Especially in the winter – you don’t want to be outdoors, you get into comfort foods around the holidays, and then you say, “I’ll start working out in a couple weeks….” Before you know it, it’s been a couple months. It’s good to have this kind of springboard every once in a while to get you right again.”
Del Schmidt, realtor, father, avid golfer in Baltimore
“I had put on a lot of weight in my 40s, and it seemed like I was getting slower and feeling less healthy all the time. I was starting to feel like an old man. I heard “eat less, exercise more,” but that was a little vague for me. I’d gotten to the point where I had night sweats and I could feel my heart pounding and skipping beats all the time. Not only did I also have too much fat around my gut, I was really bloated from poor digestion, so I was developing this big bubble at the middle of my body. I felt like I was aging at an accelerated pace.
When I started the Man Up, I weighed 235 pounds, and I dropped 15 pounds in four weeks. I also began to sleep better, and that really had a big impact on how I felt during my waking hours. My diet has changed – I’ve really gotten rid of some bad habits and introduced some good habits, and I have a lot of momentum in those areas. I literally feel like I’ve turned back the clock on my age by years. My inspiration is to be healthy and energetic and be able to participate fully in my son’s life.
I signed up for the Man Up a second time because I wanted to continue what I had learned. If you value your life and you miss the energy and happiness you felt as a younger man, you don’t have to give up on that.”
David Hoel, busy pro + father in Wisconsin

“I signed up for the Man Up the first time because I was actually sick, very sick. About two years ago, I had a heart attack at the age of 35. That’s just too young to have a heart attack. I realized I needed some help, and the Man Up seemed like a no-brainer.
I’ve lost 50 pounds. Food doesn’t seem to have the same power over me as it used to. I feel much more energized, I get sick a lot less, and I feel confident all the time. As a large person, you’re very aware of your size. Now I just feel normal again. I’m wearing clothes I haven’t worn in five or six years, and I’m not afraid to go on a roller-coaster or an airplane because I know I’m going to fit this time. I think what makes the Man Up unique is the group mentality, having a group of men doing this together and knowing that your story matters to each one of them. The relationships have lasted for me.
My inspiration is that I want no obstacles in the way of my future, whether I want to climb mountains and travel or do rough-and-tumble things with my kids or look good for my wife. My future is too important to let something like my weight and my health drag me down. Participating in the Man Up multiple times is a way to reset and feel like you’re participating in something bigger than just yourself.”
Matt Sadler, IT pro, blogger, foodie, father in Florida
As an attorney, I have a high pressure job and I’m sedentary most of the day. It was impacting my food and my health. I was eating badly, and for the wrong reasons. I was over-committed and breaking many of my commitments. I felt guilty, frustrated and out of control.
The accountability in the Man-Up is powerful and unique. Even the instructors are right there with you, coming clean when they break their commitments. The process we use in the Man Up makes it easy to quickly get back on track. I’m still not perfect, but I now know myself as a “man of my word.” No more wasted energy on guilt or judgment. No more giving up on my goals and commitments.
Plus, my relationship with food is greatly upgraded. My food choices are conscious. I’m able to avoid cravings (or emotional eating masked as cravings) and make better choices. Even my “bad choices” are now better choices than before. Moreover, the “bad choices” are fewer and farther between.
This is a great program for any man who has struggled with weight, lack of exercise, or making and keeping commitments of all kinds. Again, the coaches are right there, living it with you. If you’re looking to improve yourself, join us in the next program.
Cam, attorney, 40 yrs old, Richmond, VA
I was spinning my wheels with health and fitness. I knew what I wanted to accomplish, but didn’t have an effective system – or the discipline – to make it happen. As a small business owner, I struggled to stay focused and committed to achieving my goals.
The Man Up was exactly what I needed to start taking control of my life. I dropped 12 lbs in 30 days and my cravings for unhealthy foods subsided as I replaced them with more nutritional alternatives. Small changes in my daily habits made it easier to achieve longer-term goals. Most importantly, I learned the power of being accountable for my commitment.
Since finishing the Man Up, I have continued on with many of the new habits and I have been able to keep losing weight. I have more energy to sink in to my business, I sleep better, and I have more confidence in having the discipline to keep my word.
I found the Man Up to be an extremely powerful program and I would recommend it to any man who is seeking to feel healthier and be more productive.
Bill S., 42 years old, small business owner, State College, PA
Before the Man Up, I was 225 pounds and diabetic. My HGBA1C level was 8.2 and I was taking 30 units of insulin daily. My stamina for exercise was very low and I had no desire to walk at all, being very lazy and slow.
After 1 week, I lost 6 pounds and reduced my insulin from 30 to 15 units. By the end of the 3rd week I was not using insulin at all and I had the energy to walk again and to exercise more frequently. I lost 10 pounds total in the month.
Now (2 months later), I am 209 pounds (down 16 pounds total) and I’m still off insulin. My HGBA1C levels again and it is now 6.5. I exercise daily, rotating cycling, weight training, and tennis. I continue to eat nutrient-rich, healthy foods and stay off the sweets.
What I appreciate the most is the coaching and assistance from Lucas and his team with the nutrition. I developed new eating habits and I learned a lot of tips and tricks from the other group members.
Hernan B. – Architect, 70 years of age, Los Angeles, CA
My sleep was out of whack and my energy was dropping through out the day.
I need that energy to show up powerfully for my wife and daughters, run my own business coaching practice, maintain a robust public speaking schedule, and annually expand my homestead (gardens, chickens, etc).
The group accountability of the Man Up got me hooked into playing the game of healthy habits. I ate more greens, less processed food and added a short meditation and stretch session to my mornings. All things I know to do, but fail to do consistently at times.
Post Man Up, the benefits continue, as I am now maintaining the consistent morning routine and my sleep improved, so I have better energy.
I guess the best endorsement I could give you to try the Man Up is to know that I am going to repeat the program. This program works to change habits. And that is the key to achieving goals. I am in!
Seth Braun, success coach and speaker, Fairfield, Iowa
“I worked with Joe and Lucas on reaching some of my nutritional and fitness goals. I eliminated caffeine and a couple of other processed foods – just by eliminating these few things, I lost 8 pounds in 20 days. The fitness activities are only 15 minutes a day. Working with Joe and Lucas really helped me do way better in a far shorter amount of time than I could do by myself. It’s not just a gym membership and it’s not just a cookbook that you bought. You’re with a lot of your peers and you get to see the specific problems they struggle with, whether it’s social drinking, coffee or alcohol, a pizza party at work.
After the Man Up, I’m not tired at all, ever. If you sign up, be prepared to have an exorbitant amount of energy. When you’re able to say, “I lost 15 pounds this month, I’m more awake than I’ve ever been, and I’m making first downs professionally…” that’s pretty awesome. It’s easy to make the investment if you’re ready to come closer to focusing on the best version of yourself.
Ken March, singer songwriter in Boston
With Lucas and the team, I dropped 9 pounds in 30 days. I’m gaining muscle weight, rather than fat. I’m finally getting back to the shape I want to be in with habits that can last.
When I signed up, I had more stress and less energy than I wanted. It was affecting my social life, love life, and my work. I was getting really good at giving excuses. ‘Too tired,’ ‘Too much work,’ and ‘No time for that’ were becoming commonplace justifications for my unhealthy lifestyle.
Do the Man Up if you’re ready to give up the excuses and establish a healthy, energetic lifestyle. I learned how to maximize my efforts with the little time I had. I found the best ways for me to work out, boost my mood, and keep consistently high energy.
Luke R., Project Manager in Washington, DC
I’m a guy who works hard and plays hard. Before the Man Up, I was dealing with nagging fatigue, headaches and stomach issues on a weekly basis. I ate pretty well most of the time and worked out a couple of times per week, but I knew I could do better. To be honest, I didn’t think much about food. I ate whatever was in front of me. If I wanted cake, cookies, ice cream, or pizza, I just ate it.
Lucas’ system and coaching gave me the structure and accountability to achieve high energy all week long – so now I accomplish more and show up for my family. My weekly rhythm works. I’m working out 5 days a week, eating much healthier (many foods I did not know existed!), and the headaches and stomach aches are gone. Funny how that works!
Oh, and I lost 10 pounds and 2 belt notches, and I wasn’t even trying! I highly recommend the Man Up for busy men who also want to optimize energy and health. Lucas took great care of me in the program and I am grateful for him.

Why would another health coach who knows so much about nutrition and fitness join the Man Up? Because knowing doesn’t automatically translate to doing. Every season of life poses new challenges to our healthy habits that we must overcome. And, there is always the next level of energy, health and fitness to achieve! Check out Zeke’s story to find out why he signed up not only once but twice!
“I was addicted to coffee, and that was dis-empowering. It didn’t feel like I could choose whether or not to drink coffee, but that it was something I had to do a couple times a day to manage my mood and my energy. I was on a roller-coaster of energy ups and downs. Plus, I wanted to heal some chronic conditions – skin issues and inflammation in my body. I saw that there was an opportunity to transform my life in 30 days.
What I got out of the Man Up is that I have a choice to commit to my health and fitness, and the possibilities are pretty endless. My new relationship with coffee is big, but the 15-minute fitness is the #1 habit I gained – I can feel my cardiovascular fitness climb and grow and my flexibility climb and grow. It doesn’t give me the feeling that I can’t stick with it, which has shut me down in the past. The results were profound. I’m a graduate, but I’ll be repeating the Man Up at the end of the month.
Zeke Phillips, personal chef, coach and surfer
I needed a jump start after the Holidays. I was stuck in a bit of a rut due to traveling and endless holiday parties. My goals were to lose weight, burn body fat, and get in a sustainable food and fitness routine, and I achieved 3 out of 4 in just 30 days.
I basically worked out every morning before work which was a huge accomplishment for me as I am not a morning person. I established a habit of preparing the optional recipes on the weekend, which set me up for the week. That saved time and ensured I stayed on plan. Regarding weight loss, I didn’t lose many pounds, but I saw pretty drastic changes in terms of my body composition (muscle weighs much more than fat) and how I felt overall.
Since the Man Up, I’ve remained committed to my workout routine (albeit a little more balanced in terms of before work / after work) and am still on the food plan. The progress and journey continues to move forward and I’m looking forward to doing another Man Up in March. A big thank you to Lucas as the driving force and inspiration of the program but also to the other coaches and men who took the challenge and provided support all along the journey.
Brad, 32, Financial Professional in New York City
As a busy salesman working 70-hour work weeks, I was increasingly out of shape and feeling unhealthy. I used to rely on school athletics to keep me in shape. Since joining the workforce, I’ve been telling myself “I’ll work out tomorrow,” but never doing it.
The majority of my meals became takeout ordered online. I worked all day, so I rewarded myself with a nice lasagna, beer, and time on the couch. It’s not like I was obese and super unhealthy, but there was always looming doubt – “will you ever be in shape again? What will it take?” I kept using my busy work schedule as the excuse.
In the past, I tried to establish new habits. I always did too much in a small period of time, messed up one time, and lost motivation.
The Man-Up set me up for success and simplified habit change. Now I’m a man who does what he says he’ll do with food and fitness. And, when I don’t, I get back on track quickly.
I no longer need caffeine for energy, my nutrition is upgraded, and I MAKE time for fitness. I feel better and I’m more confident. Surprisingly, scheduling out my non-work activities (e.g. exercise, meals, errands) – a habit I picked up from the Man-Up – has me more productive in my work hours.
No more excuses or procrastination. Definitely join the next Man-Up if you want an edge in every area of your life. You’ll learn how to get results (energy, fitness, weight loss) no matter the obstacles.
I’m excited for my next Man-Up!
Dan, salesman in New York City
“My father passed away very unexpectedly from a heart attack. He was the last person I would have expected to have a heart problem. He was fit, trim, energetic, enthusiastic, a healthy eater, etc. After this tragedy, I became increasingly interested in learning about heart health, and I joined the Man Up to learn more.
I learned how to fuel my body with the best possible nutritional combinations for me. Lucas and the guys bolstered my knowledge of nutrition for heart health while giving me tips to me make healthy eating more fun, tasty, and energizing. The energy that I felt and continue to feel is powerful. Honestly, I feel terrific.
The Man Up allows you to drill down into the heart of what matters to you regarding health, and learn specific strategies to achieve your goals. I recommend it to any man that is interested, curious, and/or enthusiastic about health and feeling a high level of energy each and every day.”
