I am 52 years old, and I don’t mind saying it. The trick is not to feel 52, and this program gave me the kick start I needed! I’m down 11 pounds since I started 40 days ago!
The program started slowly, but after a week I was more limber and somewhat eager to increase my gains by doing more reps in the allotted time. It also motivated me to start thinking about myself before I started my day worrying about everyone else. I have to say if you don’t do it in the morning you’ll never find the time!
I didn’t pay much attention to what I was eating, (not that I ate terribly, but if I wanted a burrito I had it) but over time I found my body craved certain foods (beets! celery!?) that I incorporated into delicious salads and side dishes. Less was more in the food department and I realized that I didn’t need the moderate-sized portions to feel satisfied.
I began to think of working out like brushing my teeth… I would never start my day without it! The pace was not defeating and the motivational talk videos were planned to know exactly what I was thinking and continue to keep me motivated and driven!
I feel great! Thanks for creating this program. Best of health!

Nicole is a newlywed who was looking to get motivated to start working out again. She completed Q15 in September 2020.
AWESOME 40-day workout!!
The exercises are easy to follow. The videos and follow up emails kept me highly motivated! I enjoyed reading all your articles!
I did definitely tighten and tone-up a bit. Most of all, the program got me out of my COVID-funk!
Q15 was just what I needed to get back on track again!

I can’t thank you enough for this program. It is exactly what I needed for a fitness AND mind/body reboot!
Overall I think the program was great! Not overwhelmed with mental prep and not so little that I felt it was a waste of time.
Since starting the workouts I’ve had a reason to wake up at 5 or 5:30 AM again! Because of that motivation, I tend to go to bed waaaay earlier and not stay up just mindlessly watching tv, social media, etc. My wife even noticed that I was excited to get to bed early just so I could wake up and get a pre-day workout in.
On top of that I found myself naturally drinking less. Some long work days I would want to have a few drinks after the kids went to bed. But if I had to wake up at 5 AM the next day to get my session in before surgeries then I would pass on the drinks and just crash early. On top of all this I am finding myself running more! I went from running 60+ miles/week a few years ago to maybe running 6 miles/week since I didn’t have accountability. With your program I have been running more consistently and sometimes even doing runs on session days.
Now, being a surgeon with unpredictable hours and lots of call, my ability to 100% stick to the program wasn’t ideal. I did all the sessions and “move” days etc, but I just wish I could have been better about the diet. A lot of it is that I am a poor frugal fellow supporting a family of 4 so I take advantage of free hospital food EVERY chance I can get…and as u know free hospital food is RARELY healthy. Regardless I did find myself snacking way less, passing on desserts almost entirely and significantly limiting my night time post-dinner snacks.
Overall I just feel way better in general. I lost some weight, but even more important than the weight loss, I feel better about my mind and body. I start work every day feeling energized and I have that motivation to be better to my body.
I honestly plan to continue this workout routine indefinitely since it’s something I can simply include in my morning routine…and I am slowly trying to incorporate all of the health food tricks too!

Holly works full-time in NYC. She wanted to take better care of her health but didn’t have much time to spare in her busy work week. She completed Q15 in October 2020.
Thank you Dr. G! You made this very easy!
The workouts were short…I love that aspect as I work full time and commute.
I think this program can benefit the first time “athlete” or even the maven.
For me the recipes and following the fasting has helped my overall well being, and losing 4 lbs was a plus too! 😀
Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to guide me on this journey!
