3rd Place – Anne

"I felt like I had conquered the biggest obstacle… which is myself. This program works and it's liberating to know that I will always have something that works. I proved it. I never have to try a fad diet again."

4th Place – Andrea

"After trying more dieting approaches than I care to count, I’m excited that I've found a plan that works and that I can be successful at for the long term – while still living (and enjoying!) my life."

5th Place – Kittery

"Thank you Venus, thank you to the Brad’s, thank you Coach Roberta, thank you to all of my Venus Sisters, and last, but certainly not least, thank you to my amazing husband for helping me become the person that can finally look in a mirror and say, I am proud of the way I look!"

6th Place – Holly

"After 12 weeks I have learned that I can eat whatever I want, no more being obsessive, just being aware of what is going in is enough. I have taken a full minute off my running pace and my knees are much happier these days."

"With the community of like-minded women, I have found friendships and support that will last a lifetime. I am truly humbled by their support and genuine love they have for one another. They uplift the fallen and cheer you on! "

8th Place – Char

"It fills me with joy to share it. It works. It works for me, with my moment to moment struggles, and it can work for anyone. We don’t have to settle. We can achieve. We can become. It is good, but it also gets better! "

9th Place – Donette

"I know I can do anything I put my new healthier mind to. Balloon ride, Whitewater rafting, zipline again this summer, hiking a 14ner in my new boots I earned just this week, they are on my short list. Who knows you just might see me running one of my girls on TV someday :)"

10th Place – Laura

"So many people whom I have watched doing other programs, seemed to balloon when they quit their programs. I am very happy that I am getting shapely, as well as a losing weight. I think it is in developing a body shape with muscle that determines the great results."

Additional Transformations

These were just too good to leave out.  Each one of these ladies WON. They are still welcome to enter next years contests for the top 10 places.

The thing I’ve noticed when talking to these ladies that is really important for you to know;  YOU DON’T REALIZE YOU HAVE TRANSFORMED when you are in the process.  Several of the ladies in the top 10 thought they were FAILING at the process.  They didn’t think they were good enough.  But they WERE GOOD ENOUGH!

You see, it happens so slow.  There is nothing glamorous about it happening.  In fact you make mistakes and you don’t always keep on track with food.  You miss some workouts here and there.  BUT YOU STILL WIN.

We are all merely human.  We are not machines.  But sometimes you won’t know how you are doing unless you have someone who knows the process helping and watching.  Many people who could have won one of these contests didn’t think they did good enough, so they didn’t finish.  The fact of the matter is that most of us don’t really know what we’ve achieved.  I didn’t know either.  I had no idea.

So we want you to see all these brave women that finished, and won at the game of life. And the journey does continue for all of us.

Since the journey continues, we will be happy to share their stories NOW, interview them, and then there WILL BE MORE TO THE STORY later if they choose to win again in the top 10 for future contests.

The stories always continue for life.  You never actually “get there”, you reach a goal and then you keep going, because this is a lifestyle, not just a 12 week contest.

“The Venus system has given me the tools I needed to finally lose the weight that long distance running could not achieve. The podcast are filled with valuable information along with encouraging interviews with past winners.”

 

Christine

"The only person that could change that was me. I needed a program that I could actually follow and still live my life with my family. Venus was my answer and I am so happy."

Brenda

"I decided to check in with the forum and it became apparent the Veteran Venus’ would not let the meds be an excuse, and it appeared nutrition was the key. So I decided to put Venus to the test, this time trying the nutrition and weight lifting together. Low and behold the last year of weight gain was taken off in these 12 weeks, and my clothes fit again! "

Cindy

"I am super happy with my results my I"m not ready for maintenance yet. I can still improve! One of the main reasons that I first bought Venus is because I saw Roberta and her amazing body and transformation. She was my age and had muscle! That made me realize that I can still build muscle at my age. Boom!"

Heather

"I love, love, love John and Brad’s podcasts. I listened to them whenever I could. They blasted away every myth I grew up believing, every misconception that I had adopted just because a fitness professional said it and I was finally able to break away from all the bad information that I had stored in my head and replaced with the facts that John and Brad’s research had taught me."

Tricia

"I think the thing that really helped me with this part was that the whole program came out of John’s love for his sister. This is not a program designed to beat women down and make them feel inadequate. This is a program designed to help you know how beautiful you are."

"I am delighted to have improved my body to where I feel stronger and more energetic. I can even say focus is better. I have received several compliments and am motivated to keep going in order to shred, shape and tone even more!"

Cover Models

Anyone can enter the cover model contest, as many times as they want.  It’s a fun way to shadow the contest and get creative with photos.  Everyone has their own style.

In order for the cover designers to use your pictures you will need to send me a link to the high resolution pictures.
