“This has become my way of living and it is amazing how it works…..”
I joined the Fast Track not to lose weight but to learn more about healthy eating habits. I am 41 and as you have said things start changing if we don't make changes. I live in Kentucky, teach fifth grade, and have three daughters that are very active athletes. We are constantly on the go and your program has really helped me to make some changes when having to eat out all the time. This has become my way of living and it is amazing how it works.

“Thanks for giving me my life back….”
JJ - There is no doubt about it, you gave me the motivation and the strategy to get me from 224 to 179 lbs. I was wearing 46 regular suits in 110 degree weather going to lunch in Palm Desert. I did not take off my jacket in public. You woke me up, I thought I was about 10 lbs, maybe 20 lbs. overweight, you told me the truth. You gave me the leverage I needed to take action.
I often times tell people that I am convinced, that if I did not have you in my life to help me through that transition, I would have lived a life without energy and poor health.
Thanks for giving me my life back!

If I had a dollar for every person who asks me what I did to look so good so fast, I could retire next week! JJ Virgin gave me the body I always DREAMED I could have!

“I wish someone had explained to me that the improved self-confidence and attitude that comes with a good body would bring me success in every aspect of my life…”
I only wish that someone had told me years ago that building a lean, strong, healthy body would make me powerful beyond reason. I wish someone had explained to me that the improved self-confidence and attitude (not arrogance) that comes with a good body would bring me success in every aspect of my life. Perhaps then I wouldn't have gained 50 pounds in my first two months of college or ended up weighing just over 350 pounds at 19 years old. I might have been more successful in job interviews and made better first impressions, had more dates (had ANY dates).
When I met JJ a few years ago through an acquaintance, I was shocked at how simply her philosophies could be implemented on a daily basis: If it's processed, don't eat it. Avoid added sugars. Read labels - and more importantly, read ingredient lists, don't just look at the macronutrients. Find out how different foods affect your body, your mood, your energy levels, and learn from your body's reactions to these foods. Stop doing hours of endless cardio training and start lifting. Lift hard, lift heavy, and don't be afraid to be sore the next day. Learn about supplements and use them. Learn moderation - especially when out at restaurants and around desserts. Read every nutritional magazine and article that can be found. Question any advertisement that claims instant results and avoid chemicals. Eat organic. Put these all together and you have the tools to transform your entire life. As JJ says, "If you want to BE a lean, healthy person, you must LIVE like a lean, healthy person."
So perhaps the reason for my journey and the struggles I've endured is to empower me to help others, to be that person who explains that the benefits of being lean and healthy go far beyond looking good. The mind and body are one, and when they're finally in sync, life is good.

“I love feeling fourty-wonderful, energetic and focused…!”
You can imagine my surprise when I learned that a food I loved, and that I thought was keeping me skinny, was making me bloated, tired and irritable! Who knew? I was shocked when after doing some of the tests JJ recommended I discovered my "diet food" was making me feel terrible and bloated. I love feeling fourty-wonderful, energetic and focused! Thank you JJ! You transformed my life forever!"

“JJ’s program will work for you whether you are an avid fitness enthusiast or just starting out on your personal journey towards optimum health and well being…”
Who does a fitness professional turn to when she needs a mentor and inspiration? Only the best…..JJ Virgin! I found JJ while recovering from a serious personal health issue this past year. Having worked in the industry for over ten years now myself, I was very particular in choosing a program and a coach to help me get back on track. JJ’s “21 Day Fast Track Program” did just that! I have experienced a dramatic increase in energy and regained strength and stamina lost during my illness. JJ's has changed the way I train personally and professionally forever. I found JJ to be incredibly knowledgeable in both nutrition and fitness. I was so impressed with the all the supplements, information and resources that were provided in the program by JJ and her associates. I would highly recommend JJ’s products and services to anyone searching for cutting edge nutritional counseling and fitness instruction that provide results! JJ’s program will work for you whether you are an avid fitness enthusiast or just starting out on your personal journey towards optimum health and well being. JJ, thank you for being a fabulous mentor and coach, I look forward to working with you again soon!

“This has already proven itself as a lifelong plan for me...”
I know for me - this is the best thing I have done in a VERY long time....I am feeling better and better each day. I am beginning to feel the difference in the way my clothes are fitting. I never thought that at my age and family history of obesity that I could win this battle of the bulge. This has already proven itself as a lifelong plan for me. I keep my eyes forward and focus on those jeans I have hanging in my closet that I have not been into in a few years. They are waiting for me to step into them with my new shaped body!
Keep your goals and desires to lose the weight and get healthy firmly planted in your heart, mind and soul! It truly will help you to eat the things you should and leave those things you should not eat alone. It has for me.

This has been one of the most challenging 3 days for me personally: I've barely slept the past 3 nights taking care of my sick kids throughout the night and my mom has been in the hospital since Wed. with a blockage in her intestine and I'm the only child in the area to take care of her. Normally (or should I say before the program) I would have been surviving off of Starbucks Mochas, Diet Coke, chocolate, snack foods, Diet Coke, fast food, Diet Coke (yes Diet Coke has been my primary liquid fuel for over a decade), but not now! I actually made it through the past three days on the program without cheating and feel amazing! I have physical energy, even though emotionally I'm tired, and look forward to filling my body with healthful choices and lots of water because I'm feeling so good. I've spent my fair share in hospital rooms as the caregiver and always come out feeling bloated, exhausted and swollen. Not anymore. I would say the worst I've done is have 2 large Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Iced Green Teas today, which I know I should have kept to one, but if that's the worst I've done, I'm WAY ahead of the game.
Truly, I am so proud of myself and I don't ever feel like saying that, so it's not said lightly. I know now what I'm made of and that it is possible and I can get through just about anything without turning to food for comfort.
It may sound like I'm tooting my own horn over here, but honestly this is a HUGE breakthrough for me. And I deeply wish that the program does the same for all of you by showing you that you've got what it takes to get through the rough spots and experience the joy on the other side. What a wonderful gift you have given us JJ, thank you!

“…..and much to my amazement, I feel more “in balance” and relaxed than I have in a long time!”
JJ taught me that the way I was eating and, especially the way I was exercising, were actually contributing to my stress level and were putting more strain on my body. Somewhat reluctantly, I agreed to try a few simple steps she recommended for me (which I honestly felt would result in weight gain) and much to my amazement, I feel more “in balance” and relaxed than I have in a long time!

“I would recommend J.J.'s program to anyone who is looking for a fun way to lose weight and get healthy!”
I loved doing the bursting exercise; I used to just walk 20 - 30 minutes and found it boring. The bursting was so much fun and the time went by quickly. Then before the program officially started, on Sept. 20th I broke my ankle skydiving, limiting my ability to do bursting, let alone walking. But using a walker and hopping on one foot took so much energy that I think I got my bursting in any way!
I would recommend J.J.'s program to anyone who is looking for a fun way to lose weight and get healthy!

“I was amazed at the results…..”
I was eager to use JJ's 21 Day Fast Start program as a way to get in shape for an 11 day trade show. I needed energy and I want to look and feel great. I followed everything JJ recommended, especially the Burst Training (I can actually fit that into my busy schedule). Everything JJ said rang true and I really believed that it would work for me where other diets and nutrition plans have not.
I was amazed at the results! All the pants I took to the show were too loose! I felt fantastic and it showed (and glowed). I plan on keeping up everything set out in the 21 day program and getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight and getting rid of all my excess fat. I want to live a long, healthy and energetic life - and look great doing it.

“If you're serious about making a permanent lifestyle change, the guidance of JJ and her staff are a vital part of an overall health plan…”
When I saw that JJ Virgin was doing a 21 Day program, I saw it as an opportunity to get back "on the health wagon". I attacked the regimen head-on and the program, combined with the supplements, delivered great results. The best take-away from the program is that I haven't come close to falling into my old bad habits. If you're serious about making a permanent lifestyle change, the guidance of JJ and her staff are a vital part of an overall health plan.
