It was SUPER tough for us to pick just two people.

I want every single person who entered the contest to know that your feedback is VERY valuable … and I will be taking what you’ve mentioned about your goals, frustrations, etc. and using it for creation of future articles, videos and products.

So after reading through each and every comment, we picked:

I am putting the finishing touches on a brand new training program.

It’s designed to help you:

— Gain strength and lean muscle
— Lose body fat, stay slim and trim
— Feel great, and keep the aches and pains at bay
— Be ready at any given time to take on a variety of physical challenges – examples would be run a 5k, play pick-up basketball for 45 mins, do 10 pull ups, press a half-body weight kettlebell over head, bench press 1.5x your body weight, etc

In short – build the “Invincible Body”!

The full Invincible Body program will be officially available in a few short days … but as we get the finishing touches of the delivery process ironed out, and simply as my of saying THANKS to YOU, a loyal FVT blog / newsletter reader, I’ve decided to give away TWO free copies of the program.

All you have to do to win your copy is leave a comment on this post detailing your number one fitness goal … and your biggest obstacle/frustration/etc. that’s keeping you from accomplishing it.

I’ll have my assistant go through and pick the winning submission, so the contest is as fair as possible. And all I’ll ask for is a little feedback from the winner after they’ve gone through the program, watched the videos and tried the workouts themselves.

Leave a comment below to get entered to win … and keep an eye on your e-mail inbox to get first word of when the Invincible Body goes on sale!

Thanks –

    I just started doing exercises with kettlebells a couple of months ago, and I am left-handed, though I can do snatches easier right-handed, for some reason. Sometimes I can do as many as ten snatches (possibly incorrectly) left-handed, but then maybe a day or two later, it feels as if my left wrist is giving away and I have a difficult time doing even three or four left-handed. I’d like to strengthen my left forearm, really my right one, also, and wrist so that I don’t have these sorts of setbacks, and also so I can do more than one or two pull-ups in a row. Doing clean and jerks with two kettlebells would be fantastic, as well.

  • René

    My number one goal is movement without feeling restricted and weak unable to stabilize my core well.
    The issue I struggle with is that I don’t find a routine which doesn’t cause pain in all the wrong places, knees, hip, wrist(!), elbow, and a stiff neck… so yeah, I keep on working on it, slowly changing things to see what sticks and doesn’t kill me quicker.

    I would look forward to check out what the invincible body would have to over for my ailments and let me progress past 1 pullup, 5 pushups -> neckpain and a hurting wrist.


  • This Invincible Body program looks like it will be an excellent training scenario that nearly everyone could use and benefit from.
    Sometimes going back to the basics and working again from there, can be the best way to generate a fresh lease of life for moving forward with.
    Looking forward to grabbing a copy. I’m pretty sure my routine needs a revamping.


    Time has elpased. I am 60 a little overweight and I’d like to get a slimmer and stronger body to become older in good conditions. many thanks.


    Time has elapsed. I am 61 ! and a “little” overweight. I’d like to exercice without injuries and extenuation to get a slimmer and stronger body to become older in good conditions without being dependent on someone. Many thanks.

    I started working out a few years ago after getting very out of shape from a workplace accident. I went to a personal trainer who was kindof a supplement guru and wasn’t very realistic about the day to day habits of someone living the life of a 20 year old bachelor. I lost interest in being in the gym all the time. I enrolled in a crossfit class for a while and happened to find Mark Lauren’s book “You Are Your Own Gym” at my local library. It blew my mind, weight lifting seemed so mediocre after discovering that. Especially because I’m not a big guy, and it was something I felt good at from the start, and I saw results! But they didn’t last forever because I didn’t stay on top of things. I made Freedive and Breath-Hold training more of a priority, Which is really what I am passionate about. But unfortunately, a fast metabolism and a lot of protein can hinder your progress within that field. I have decided for the next while that I’m gonna go as hard as I can at both of those and achieve peak results in both apnea and bodyweight training.

  • lance

    Excited to see the finished product!

  • Connie

    My number one fitness goal at this point is to gain muscle and strength and to get my body fat to 18% (I’m a female in her 40s). I’ve recently lost 45 pounds and now want to build muscle and have it show. My goal is not to become a fitness model but rather to have very functional strength for help sustain my fitness hobbies. Being able to bench my body weight would be awesome! So far loving Bodyweight Strong 2.0 so interested in whatever else Forest develops.

  • Peter

    Stay under 10% body fat, with muscle growth at any speed being OK, and feeling great.

  • Nathan

    Interested to see what new ideas you’ve come up with. I love your hints and tips!!

  • Chris ray

    I’ve always been a naturally slim guy but college food choices did give me some what of a gut. Since I’ve be out of school I’ve been working out and monitoring my diet better but i still can’t se to get that lil pudge trip go away. I have incredible arm strength and k love calestinics but I would love to just be lean and ripped year round. I believe this book can give me more knowledge and inspiration on what to do next!!

  • Walter

    I want to slim down and get my muscle tone back, I’m having trouble with the mid section do I’m having trouble with my lymes disease again

  • ajit

    At 64 years of age, one would look for a package which pretty much takes care of everything – joint mobility, range of motion, proper warm up, and appropriate mix of exercise selection to hit the full body, then there are other and other and other variables – reps, sets, rest, frequency, TUT, and what not !!!!!
    I am very fond of working out, do it every day, but a lot of time is taken up in mobility, warm up, stretching as I am not sure how much is safe or enough ..I have already got your Body weight strong 2
    and that is neat, simple and effective, so maybe this new ‘Invincible Body’ may present the right recipe for keeping fit. That’s Why..

  • rajesh singh

    My #1 fitness goal is to develop strength while improving agility & flexibility at the same time.
    The biggest obstacle I face is finding an effective system which is time-efficient & location independent & free of excessive dietary constraints.Hope this program addresses these needs.

  • Julie

    Hi there. My biggest goal is to lose fat but look shredded. My biggest obstacle is my love for food and not only the healthy stuff. I do struggle to stay motivated to eat healthy. I hope I win a copy as I have all your other programs. Thank you


    I just love your training.
    My bigger goal is to burn the fat and keep muscles

  • Osman Ali

    Am 35 years old and my fitness goal is to compete at my age level in competitions like cross fits and strength competitions and to have the lowest body fat I can achieve as I have been trying to loose weight for the last 6 months and joined a cross fit box here in UAE and lost only 10 kg from total weight of 115 kg, I need also to be very strong in the process of losing weight and I have tried too many programs on the Internet before but either they are too advanced for me or too long to achive my strength goals, I hope your program will live up to expectations and promises, good luck.

  • Osman Ali

    Sorry but this is my correct e-mail.

  • Jaime


  • Jaime

    Double bodyweight pull-up
    My main frustration is the grip training. Working on over coming this by captain of crush and barbell holds.

  • Ann

    No. 1 goal: to pass ski racing challenge next winter
    Obstacle: motivation and disciine fade from time to time

  • Andrew Batey

    My No1 fitness goal body fat % loss. I just cant seem to get below 20% and its frustrating the hell out of me!!!!!!
    Forest, your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to help a buddy from the UK strip away his body fat with your invincible body program 🙂

  • Jill

    I have lost almost 100 lbs (on my own) since July 27,2014… I am looking to tone up and become fabulous now 🙂

  • Sally Evans

    My biggest goal is hard to select as have both running and weight training goals. Probably the hardest and most ambitious is breaking the 50min barrier for 10km. What’s stopping me? Too many other opposing goals. I run half marathons but also Crossfit and lift heavy. Sometimes this all works against each other. Working on making it all gel so compliments my goals.

  • Joe

    Thanks for your posts. they are really motivational, but my one challenge to losing weight is my diet. with so many OPTIONS for losing weight, none seem to work for me. I have hita platau that I cannotseem to free my self. Winning your book may give me the path i am looking for so choose mine.
    I really apprecaite you reading all the way through. Thanks.

    Looking for a better option,

  • Rehan

    Looking forward to this book! 🙂

  • Helena

    I really want to become faster at sprinting, but what’s holding me back is pain in my legs whenever I run.

    (By the way, is the winner chosen randomly or based on the content of the comment?)

  • You get me to do 10 pull-ups and I’ll be a supporter for LIFE! 66 years old, working on it for 4 years now and still can’t do more than 2-3 bodyweight pull-ups – have to keep using help. Just not so easy!

  • Jeff

    At 50, loosing lower abdominal fat.

  • Working full time as a staff trainer and owner of a specialty plant nursery, I struggle in the height of the growing season and end of the school year with maintaining regularity in my training. BTW, I am 61.

  • Ann Mayer

    My goal is to lose weight and gain muscle. I was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and am trying to regain strength and fitness after treatments and surgery. My biggest obstacle is time. I work full time and have a 10 year old and sometimes find it hard to fit in a workout.

  • Lily

    My main goal is to get strong, full of energy. And my biggest obstacle is not being consistent with training.

  • My number one goal is to build upper body strength so I can do pull ups and lose my lower belly pooch so that I feel more confident in myself. I have tried so many different things over the course of 2 years and nothing has worked. I have gained some strength but have not lost any fat. I think this one is going to be the one to do it. Once I gain self confidence and reach my goal it will better myself overall as well as my relationship with my husband because I will be more open.

  • Tina

    #1 Goal….lost body fat to see muscle definition
    Biggest obstacle…MENOPAUSE!

  • Steve Perry

    As the 50 year old father of two young boys, I must be Invicible to keep up with them; I just need to find the time.


  • Jeff

    my biggest fitness goal is weight loss. My problems are that I’m disfunctional in my training. Too many little things out of balance which keep causing unbalanced training for me. I know there are thousands of advice areas out there, but who can tell me where the imbalances are for me ? Hurt joint after pulled muscle again and again….

  • Frank Fotusky

    I’ve been following your fitness philosophy for sometime now. Thanks for the insights.

  • Charles

    My number one fitness goal is to get ripped muscular and be under 10% bodyfat. Right now I am currently going through programs of recovery to help stabilize some of my problem areas with my shoulders and hip joints. But once I’m finished with those, I’m going to hit it hard but safely and make sure that I make it to this goal.

  • Bret

    Most of my work-outs are body weight and kettlebells in my living room, there is just no room for anything more, so I collect as much fitness literature as I can. This would be a great addition to my collection. I hope soon I can expand out of the living room and add barbells and a rack, but until then keep up with the info, I got a long way to go…. Always pushing forward….. Thanks.

  • Stephane lefebvre

  • John

    The number 1 aim is to gain strength and lean muscle.

    The biggest frustration is losing body fat [especially round the middle!], staying slim and fit as a 70 year old – something that most on-line sites/programs do not cater for!!

  • Jody Joens

    I want to win!

  • Lewis

    This sounds like the workout I have been waiting for. I am 56 and in decent shape, playing tennis during the Fall and Winter, playing at golf during the Spring and Summer. However I have been wanting to get back into my 40’s shape. I been picking up a kettlebell program here, a bodyweight program there. There are too many options and I can’t seem to find the one that takes into account that I really may only have 30 minutes to do something toward the fitness goal…I’m hoping this may be the one that I can do on a regular basis and works for my age!

  • John Winingham

    I have alot of jont problems, so I’m always looking for something to help with bodyweight work outs.

  • This would be great reading

  • George Van Wagner

    My struggle has always been to get the body fat down and lean muscle mass up, so I can get back to being the active guy I ued to be before years of desk jobs.

  • Al


    My biggest goal is to get my balky back pain free. I am 59 years old and have been in pretty decent condition for most of my life. However, I had a back injury 20 years ago that places me in episodic pain. I can work out for awhile relatively pain free and then one morning I wake up and my glutes are tight and my hamstrings are achy. So, any help I can get to realign and strengthen my back and abs to move me beyond pain would be greatly appreciated.

  • Benno

    Hello Forest,

    My name is Benno from Holland and l am 51 years old familyman.
    First goal is to lose more belly fat and get lean.
    My frustration is that I am a sporting type, love to move but my belly fat will never ever go away in whole my life! HELP.

  • Alan kane

    My main goal is to achieve a lean fit body like I used to have 25yrs ago (I’m 56) I know I can do it, but the only thing stopping me is working long hours

  • Marc JB

    I am looking to do something just for my overall health. I am looking to get healthy so I can come off high blood pressure and cholesterol medication.

    Thank you,

  • Ray

    I am 60 year old female, in fairly good shape lately, but…..NO MATTER WHAT I TRY (and I’ve tried a LOT of workouts) and NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY (and I do TRY HARD) I simply cannot get rid of my hanging belly (that is, lower abdominal fat) which is unhealthy, unattractive (to say the least), unrelenting (so far). If your new program (Invincible Body) can help me reach this ultimate goal — to finally get rid of this awful thing, I’d be most appreciative, willing to share progress notes, before/after pics and anything else you require. I’m not looking to lose weight, I just want to be tight and toned all over in this lifetime. Thank you for being here. I do sincerely respect your work.

  • Joe D'Alconzo

    I am trying to keep up mobility, strength and endurance (and with my 7-year-old). My frustrations and obstacles are as follows: I’m 40, and up until a few years ago, never really took care of myself, so I don’t have youth on my side. With 2 kids and a stressful full time job, I am pressed for time. I make fitness a priority, but I don’t have the 5-6 days @1.5 hours a day that I used to have-I cram in 30 minutes 5x/week (instead of taking lunch at work) and maybe one or two longer sessions a week. And, I’ve injured my shoulder and QL a few times, so being injury-free is a major priority.

  • chris singleton

    I am looking for a program that will help me in getting in shape and keep me on track. I am looking for a program I can look forward to the next workout. I need to lose weight and keep it off.

  • Thomas

    My number one fitness goal is to gain strength and lean muscle, especially upper body development, I am down in the 9% body fat and have a BMI of 18.7, but have not been able to get much chest and shoulder development due to old martial arts shoulder injuries complete with calcifications, even though honestly I never had much chest development before my injuries, I would like to build lean muscle mass and recover from injuries so I have full ROM in my shoulders.

  • Heidi Lewis

    I will be 50 in 9 months, and really need to work on core strength and conditioning. I underwent 2 abdominal surgeries over the last 3 years, and am currently working out with kettlebells and bodyweight exercises (love the body strong program!). However, my abs are non-existent at this time. I would love to firm them up and tighten the whole midsection before my birthday. I am going on a cruise for my birthday and would love to be comfortable in a swimsuit. I am not afraid of hard work to get what I am looking for, I did it at 35 when I first discovered weight training – after being the queen of cardio! The new program sounds wonderful! I look forward to learning more about it.

  • Adrian Logan-Rich

    Lose fat, gain muscle… 62 an Invincible Body, that’s a goal I need to achieve……..

  • Dennis

    My one goal is to be a muscular and ripped fitness model, I already workout hard and have a strict diet so i am not sure what is my problem/obstacle, maybe a lack of a kick ass program

  • Tommie Slade

    My goal is to become as lean as I can while keeping and increasing strength and to be at optimum flexibility and to finally get my diet under control to reduce and reverse some health issues. Right now the obstacle is being out of work

  • admin

    Thanks again for all the awesome feedback everyone!

    We are going to sort though all of the awesome entries and pick two winners – which is going to be tough to do!

    Really appreciate you taking the time to leave your response … and will be working hard over the coming weeks and months to create new articles, videos, etc to help you overcome your obstacles and achieve your goals 🙂

    Thanks again –

    – Forest

  • Rick

    I would say my number one goal is to gain strength an gain muscle to feel like no matter what the challenge that there is a progression to get me there.

  • Anne Schmidt

    Hi guys I am 56 years old and have trouble getting past my plateau to meet my goal of body fat Loss. I am looking for something that will help me with that problem.
