The 15 Month Transformation Of David

There are many ‘transformational’ stories.

Some stories are forgotten.

Some stories stick.

And then there are stories like this one.


Have you ever heard about the ‘43 year old man who used to be a homeless meth user, ended up in jail 18 times, became depressed, ate himself into obesity and weighted 315 pounds at his highest?’

In case you haven’t, his name is one to remember…David.


And if you don’t know David, you need to know his story.

Because David did something few people will ever do.

He faced his Goliath.



This Is The E-mail David Sent To Bar Brothers Groningen


I am a 43-year-old man who was an intravenous meth user for 18 years, in prison three times, jail 18 times, and homeless.

I was saved from my drug use and criminal life, but I had become depressed.

I became reclusive and began to eat myself into obesity…topping the scales at 315 pounds.

I had absolutely no energy and was completely useless to my wife and son.


The example I was setting for my two-year-old son was an unhealthy lifestyle.

Unless I changed my habits, and he continued to live the way I was permitting, his health would suffer.

I was eating fast food, processed food, cereals, boxed foods, canned foods, juices, sodas, etc. which kept me on the couch and had absolutely no desire to do anything except remain in my personal hell.


Out of concern for my well being as well as my family’s I began a transformation journey that Bar Brothers has been a HUGE part and influence on my lifestyle change mentally, diet and physically.

What I read made sense, and I took it on 100%.

I was amazed at not just the weight loss, but at the enormous increase in my energy.

Over time my depression lifted.


Using the Bar Brothers  nutritional informational as well as  my bar & olympic rings  workout routine, I was able to lose 140 pounds and gain lean muscle in 15 months.

My energy level is remarkable.

Bed at 8:30 p.m. and up at 3:30 a.m.


I am a personal trainer for others, and I care for my two sons and my wife, so my days are always jam packed, and I never fatigue.

My 33-year-old wife follows bar bros as well  and has lost 170 pounds.

It is a common belief that the healthy lifestyle takes a gym membership and a diet that’s too costly.


However, we are a family of four and are currently living on the salary my wife makes as a waitress.

To say we are poor is an understatement and my point is that there was and is no gym membership nor outrageous grocery bills needed to obtain whatever goal your trying to accomplish but if your looking for an excuse it’s an oldie but goodie for some reason.

This  is not a diet for us, it is a lifestyle and a mindset change.

Sodas, burgers, chips, candy bars, Starbucks, packaged, canned food, etc…are costly!


Now, what I am not spending on unhealthy food, I designate that same money to healthy  foods, pull up bars and olympic rings.

It works out financially to be cheaper and  so much better for your life!

Bar brothers has been my go to source from the beginning and that will never change.

Bar brothers  has helped transform, inside and out, the man you see before you.

With Bar brothers I began feeling a difference immediately, seeing a difference within two weeks, and hearing from others the difference they were seeing in me within a month of changing my eating and exercising habits.

Here’s a transformation picture of my wife.




Went through a dozen resistance bands at first but she stuck it out and went by your guys’ motto of just keep going and going and going.

It’s literally gotten my whole family involved.

A couple pics of my 5 year old and 20 month old son hanging on the bar.




The little one hangs for 26 seconds.

You guys literally lit the proverbial fire under my ass and it spread to my wife and boys.

I would say good luck, but if you follow Bar brothers, luck has nothing to do with the changes you will experience.


The story of David contains a few very valuable lessons.

Lessons that stand the test of time.

Lessons that are undeniably true.



We All Have Obstacles, Challenges And Excuses


Goliath is the giant obstacle you find on your calisthenics journey or anywhere else in life.

Goliath is your excuse.

Goliath is your reason for not achieving your potential.

And by feeding your Goliath, you will become smaller and your obstacle will only increase in size.


Every time you eat a bad meal, your Goliath grows in strength.

Every time you fail to workout, your Goliath is amassing more muscle.

Every time you decide that you simply cannot do it, your Goliath is smiling with content.

It took David some time, but David faced his Goliath.


Just like David, you might have obstacles.

Just like David, you might have challenges.

Just like David, you might have excuses.

But the question is: “Are you willing to face them…just like David?”



It’s Never Too Late To Realize And Decide That You Need To Change


He realized that the fast foods, boxed foods, juices and sodas were keeping him on the couch when he should be working out.

He realized that the toxins he was putting into his body were draining his energy when he should have been energetic.

He realized that he was setting an example for his friends, his wife and his son. And his example… wasn’t a good one.


Then David discovered, the ‘Bar Brothers’

And David realized that he could change. Mentally and physically.

David took on the Bar Brother lifestyle’ 100%. No excuses.

David pushed, pulled and squatted himself out of his depression.


Recognize parts of yourself in the ‘old David’?

Even if you are in the same negative state.

It’s NEVER too late.



There Is Always Someone Showing You That It’s Possible


And David lost, but not from his Goliath.

David lost 140 pounds and gained more lean muscle than most people can dream of in 15 months.

And David’s wife…she took on the same journey, losing 170 pounds.

Today David is a personal trainer, a friend and a dedicated husband filled with energy.

David realized that beating Goliath has nothing to do with good luck, David taught me an important lesson.


No matter how big the obstacle.

No matter how far the place.

No matter how deep the hole.

No matter how long the race.


When your excuses start building up.

When your fear breaks through the door.

When you face your biggest Goliath yet, and when you feel like you will never make it.


There is a 43-year guy who ate himself into obesity, lost 140 pounds and used to be homeless and depressed, who is showing you that it’s possible.






Beast mode ON!

    Im just asking to have an Insight in your Beginner wo Plan? Is there a Chance? Thank you and regards!!

    1. Hey Jonathan,

      Great question.

      Yes, but you can always use the free stuff here if you don’t have the budget.

      There is a free meal plan + a free 6 month training plan for beginners.

      Let me know if there is anything else.

      Beast mode ON!

  4. Hello,

    I have sent you a message but I still didn’t receive any answer.
    I started with the 7 days beast mode exercices (upper and lower body), and then I bought the 12 week training system. I just started and I wanted to know if I still had to do the exercices in the 7 days beast mode in combination with the exercices proposed every day for the 12 week training system.

    Thank you

    1. Hey Oliver,

      I might have missed your message.

      No, this would be very hard, especially as a beginner. The system itself is already a highly demanding program. The 7 days of beast mode were meant to prepare you for those 12 weeks.

      So stick to the 12 week system, it will be more than enough ;).

      Keep up the good work!

      Beast mode ON!
