The Ultimate Un-Biased Review Of The Truth About Abs Program

Now with this review I’m going to break it down into three different sections.

First, I’m going to start off with what the product is, some behind-the-scenes looks at the product, and the background of the creator behind the whole scheme of things. Generally this will be where I give you quality information so you don’t have to go through all the muggy research yourself.

Second, I’ll talk about how this product helps you, the negative things behind it (if any), and if there’s anything comparable to it in existence.

Thirdly, I’d like to give you my complete honest opinion behind this product, and just pour out my honest thoughts about it, so you have a strong opinion behind this to base your decision off. I never want to give false information about a product, but rather I want to be completely open to you guys and help you out any way I can by either recommending it or not.

I want you succeeding with your Fitness Program and truly obtaining your goals, so if that means telling you that a product really isn’t worth your time, I’ll do that.

So, in case you don’t like reading millions of words (I often write too much), let me break down my four sections for review articles into a small list.

1. The basics of the product, what it does, the background, and how it work

2. How the product helps you, the negative feedback, and anything comparable to i

3. My completely honest opinion on the product and a run down of why I feel this way

The Truth About Abs Program

You may or may not have heard of this program but my guess is that you’ve heard of it some way or another. Now there are two types of audiences when it comes to this program: those who stray away from anything that has to do with this, and those who back this up 100% because they’ve personally seen success with this.

Now I’m neither one of these groups of people because honestly, I’ve never tried it and I don’t intend to. I’ll get into exactly why in a minute here. This program has a reputation around the internet, and it isn’t exactly bad or good. It’s just well-known because there are countless review of this program across the internet, and whenever you type in anything related to “six pack abs” this program will pop-up right in your face.

Nine out of ten times, it won’t be the real product sales page, but will usually be a review of the product intending to drive you to want to buy it from a link that they have on their personal review page. This is sort of a “spammy” tactic you see come along with this program a lot, and that’s the reason it has a reputation across the internet.

What Is This Thing?

This product is a complete fat-blasting, abdominals-developing program intended to help you achieve toned, six pack abs, or for women, just a flat stomach. It includes some great videos, dietary guides, and weight loss tips that are virtually unknown by most every individual.

The Author Behind The Program: Mike Geary

Mike Geary is the creator of this program and is well known for his expertise in nutrition and fitness. I’ll be honest, I haven’t personally tried the program, but I’ve read a bunch of reviews and success stories from this program.

Mike Geary has a BS degree from Susquehanna University and is honestly, a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Personal Trainer. I say “honestly” because you’ll hear of so many fake personal trainers and nutrition specialists out there who just use those two qualifications as a means of getting more attention to them. These kind of people are fake and need to get kicked off of the internet, permanently.

However, with Mike Geary it’s a different story. Out of all the reviews I’ve read and testimonials I’ve hear about, there’s been one thing that’s been consistent with this program. This is the fact that Mike Geary truly is what he says he is, and that he does have the knowledge to back up this program’s success.

Now I’m not saying this program is amazing (we’ll get into that soon) but I am saying that the creator behind the program does have a true passion for helping people and also knows what he’s talking about, since he went through that “fat stage” of his life.

And, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that you can look past a program’s “testimonials” and all the hype around it and get to the true core of the program when you determine the kind of person who created the product him/herself.

Fun Facts About The Author Mike Geary

He’s been a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist for over ten years and has helped millions of people get weight off of their waistline. Being a Nutrition Specialist or Personal Trainer, or in Mike’s case BOTH, is an extremely commendable accomplishment and should say something about him.

He constantly is improving and developing his program according to the feedback he receives from customers and he’s put his program through multiple beneficial changes in order to develop a program that really works in getting rid of that belly fat. Constantly improving a product to help others more and more is just something you don’t see nowadays, so when I notice an author constantly updates his program or makes little tweaks here and there, it really gives me confidence in that person and their product.

Again, I’m not saying the product itself is going to revolutionize your life and you HAVE to buy it now, but I’m stating solid facts that affect many consumers’ decisions when they purchase products. This is my way of helping you decide if this program really is for you or if it isn’t. I don’t base my success on how many programs I can get people to buy, but I base my success on whether I helped someone make the right decision to benefit them and ultimately help them get to where they want with their health and physique.

The Formula for Successful Market Programs – Finally Revealed

Awhile back, we wrote an Industry White Paper titled “Market Technology: The Missing Link.” In its simplest form, Market Technology outlined a methodology, which advocated that a company’s market program (effectiveness) was, as critical as, the product and services that a company engineered.

Possibly, more important – especially for small-to-medium, sized companies that had to get it right out-of-the gate and did not have the margin for error that larger firms have. Market Programs can make or break a firm. This article discusses a process orientation to define/develop effective, Market Programs, which can impact several areas:

  • Vertical Industry/New Market Development
  • Product Launch Introductions/Roll-Outs
  • Competitive Attack Campaigns
  • Target Account and Opportunity Base Development
  • Distribution Channel & Strategic Alliance Development/Stimulation

As we overview this process, it is necessary to insert a critical role in the organization – the Market Programs Designer. No matter what your firm calls this role, it is essential to have a defined “owner” and skilled individual on staff that can translate critical business insights into effective Market Programs. Without this, your organization will be driven by bold ideas that stumble along or go nowhere.

This is the primary reason that many CEOs are reluctant to put the power stick in the hands of Marketing and invest. If they have been let down by the lack of results in past efforts, it only makes it more difficult for the Marketing Team to have a voice. This may explain the reason that Marketing defaults to trade show coordination, product support, lead generation and collateral development, as their primary focus in many organizations.

Here is a summary of the process steps to feed/fuel effective, Market Programs development:

1. Research Phase (Doing the Homework) – this does not have to be a strict, empirical study. For each program, a range of outside sources should be tapped to obtain or reinforce the insights needed to develop a baseline program profile.

For example, if the focus is on New Product Introduction, then engaging with Industry Associations/Groups that cater to your target segment (niche) and key customers and prospects (and even some ringers – competitors’ customers that selected them over your firm) can be engaged to gain critical insights. Cover your bases – obtain pure, unsolicited responses on Market characteristics, buying attitudes, evaluation/selection criteria, price points, problem-set, perceived or derived benefits (from use), key applications, packaging considerations, economic factors, competitive influences (tactics, options, alternatives, etc.), timing, cost/return considerations (breakeven scenario), roll-out incentives, etc.

This can be garnered in thirty days or less and once you develop a knack, it can become a continuous process. Once the data is collected, have some of your “bright lights” interpret and translate the various inputs into a general Profile. Make sure that this step is not contaminated by individuals that will either incorrectly translate the data or influence it to be what they want it to be. That will only result in ineffective program definition, as we move through the process. Imagine implementing a Program where the timing or other factors were flawed or misjudged – it happens and it results in a bust program.

2. Program Profile – the profile is the baseline that will direct you to the make-up and elements that will fuel and shape the Market Program or campaign. The profile is a composite of the results of the research phase and the translations/interpretations that were made.

Example: Let’s say that your front-end, research indicated Middle Management (those with the problem to solve), within target accounts were ripe for change (given the capabilities of your new product launch), however Senior Management was uncertain or found it difficult to introduce change into the organization, at this stage. To ignore this input and launch a new product targeted at Middle Management (user community) and not factor-in sentiments of Senior Management and timing of launch – may be detrimental to program success.

Certainly, a necessary element of the program may be to conduct an educational webinar for Senior Management or to develop a series of Industry briefs that could bring them up to speed. Each element that was derived from the research phase must be sorted-out this way and then transferred to the Program Profile. When each element is outlined, it is then necessary to evaluate and select the overall, make-up of the campaign.

The Benefits of Learning How to Program Computers

I still remember the excitement I felt when I wrote my first basic program on the BBC Micro at school. It was a simple four line program that drew a triangle on the screen. In the early 1980s we enjoyed playing games such as Chuckie Egg and the famous Granny’s Garden on the BBC Micro which was the first computer we were introduced to, but the real excitement was getting the computer to perform tasks in the basic programming language. Simple programs that drew shapes or printed text on the screen weren’t exactly ground-breaking but it was enough to wet my appetite for programming and set me on the path to programming games on other computers such as the Spectrum, Atari ST and Amiga.

In the good old days of the Spectrum you could buy magazines which feature pre-written games in basic code that you could type into your own Spectrum and hope the program ran okay. This was a great way of learning how code works and what commands do what. Books on basic programming were also released that would take you through the basics of commands and structure, and end up programming an entire game. The satisfaction of making things happen was amazing.

So what are the benefits of learning how to program computers? In my personal experience it gives you a sense of achievement to create an entire program from scratch and see it working. Working out how to get the computer to do something is challenging as you try to decide how you are going to do it. The excitement of being able to create your very own game where you make the rules. The joy of other people playing it.

Programming is good for the mind as it involves problem solving. For example: how to get multiple sprites moving across the screen and dropping bullets like the famous Space Invaders game. What to do if a player does something unexpected and the game crashes, how to tell the computer how to deal with these unexpected events. I once spent over a week programming a zoom function into an Art Package I wrote which gave me a great feeling of relief when I finally got it working.

Programming can also be lots of fun and a great hobby. I met some good friends when I was writing programming tutorials for various Atari ST diskzines in the 1990s who I still hear from to this day. We would send each other disks full of programming tools and routines and look forward to the many programs we could create where we were limited only by our imagination. Our creations were reviewed in the top Amiga and ST magazines of the day which is something we all looked forward to.

Finally programming can become a good source of income for you. Creating your own programs can become a reality with the many excellent programming languages available such as App Game Kit which allows you to create software that runs on multiple devices. People always want new software and employers need to find programmers to create it.

There are many game creator programs on the market which require no programming at all but I personally find them limiting. If you want to create your own games or application then I highly recommend you get stuck into some good old fashioned coding with one of the popular programming languages on the market today.
