Always Be Weary of “Too Good To Be True”

by Christian Duque

Listen up folks! If you’re looking to get a big break in the fitness industry, you have to be sensible and realistic. For example, we have a great ambassador program at IronMag Labs. With our program, you can truly make your mark – that’s, after all, our mantra. With that being said, we’re very picky and look at a number of different factors. Whereas most companies in the industry have barely been around six months, IronMag Labs has been around well over a decade.

Juan Morel Wins Big in Brazil

by Christian Duque

New Yorkers are extremely competitive by nature, they like to play hard, and they like to win. In terms of losing, I’m not sure they’re too familiar with that concept; no matter what life throws their way, a real New Yorker will figure out a way to smash through it. As they, say if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. Speaking of which, that’s exactly what New York native, bodybuilder, Juan Morel did at the Arnold Classic Brazil. He brought a jaw-dropping amount of signature size, nailed his posing, and won a key title that puts him in perfect place in the sport.

Fitness Scammers Are Helping the Industry?

by Matt Weik

In light of the whole Brittany Dawn Fitness scam (which is still going on by the way), I’m going to actually help people understand why this is a GOOD THING for the industry. Many of you might be scratching your head as to how this is a good thing, but it actually is. Here’s the bottom line… Are there fitness scammers out there? Absolutely! When one of the fitness scammers gets exposed, will more follow suit and get exposed down the road? You bet they will (which could actually prevent them from even starting if they were smart). In the end, this opens the eyes to the people out there who are looking for solid plans to help them reach their health and fitness goals and gives business to more of the good trainers out there in the fitness industry.

Making Your Body Work for YOU: 5 More Tips for a Powerful Mind!

No matter your current goals, you’re not going to improve your body without first strengthening your mind! Your thoughts ultimately control your actions, and it’s a strong mind that pushes us to eat right, train hard, and stick to a plan for the long haul. Even the greatest routines for nutrition, training, and supplementation will fail if you don’t have the will to carry them out.

The Shawn Ray Way

by Christian Duque

Shawn Ray is back with another great project, earning him more fans, more money, and more respect. Then again, this has been Shawn’s tried and true approach ever since he step foot on his first bodybuilding stage. Does he have haters? OH MY GOD, YES!! But guess what, those haters have paved the way to his, now, super stardom. I’m sure many of these bums would expect a certain hand gesture from Ray, if given the chance, but they’re probably mistaken as to which. A lot of trolls think the stars would give them [the middle] finger, when in reality, it’s probably more of a thumbs-up, than anything else. Haters make you famous and although this may violate the most basic tenets of Broscience, it is, very good to feed the trolls.

Are Supplement Sales for Weight Management Products Slowing Down?

by Matt Weik

Let’s be honest, consumers are smarter today than they ever were, and their knowledge is constantly expanding. Marketing ploys that once worked to sell a product are no longer pulling weight management products off the shelves. People used to believe the claims of “Lose 10 pound in 5 days!” Now, they simply laugh at such an ad.

Fake Supplement Reviews Still a Problem for the Industry

by Matt Weik

Recently, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has cracked down on a supplement company for purchasing fake reviews for their products on Amazon and slapped them with a $50,000 fine. This supplement company paid a third-party website to create fake reviews of their product on the Amazon platform so that the company could maintain a five-star rating with their product. This notion that fake supplement reviews are common these days is actually quite common but not really discussed.

Alq Gurley – Could A Comeback Ever Happen?

by Christian Duque

Going back to an era of bodybuilding, where magazines ruled and no one had ever heard of social media, much less the internet, a young man from Philadelphia wowed the sport with a stellar physique than could potentially go all the way. Al played all the major sports from track to football, was very familiar with weight-training, and had a very strong work ethic, from his earliest beginnings.

Frozen Meals: Don’t Call it a Comeback

by Matt Weik

I remember growing up in the ‘80s and ‘90s where frozen dinners were the craze. You’d get out a snack tray table and plop yourself down in front of the television, warm up your frozen tv dinner and settle in for the night. Then all of the nutrition Nazi’s came along and threw stones at people who consumed frozen meals. Ok, that might be slightly exaggerated but the media started to push the notion that frozen meals are not healthy due to the high amounts of sodium, excessive preservatives, and lackluster nutritional profiles.

It’s On – Jerry Ward and Robby Robinson

by Christian Duque

You know… I really hate dragging out a story; it’s just not my style; however, when you have a developing story, I’d be remiss if I didn’t cover it. In a nutshell, Robby Robinson started a GoFundMe. He’s got a serious illness and he needs help paying for his medical bills. Robby’s situation is, unfortunately, quite common, given our nation’s majorly flawed healthcare system, but I digress.

Can Nathan De Asha Rebound from His Poor Choices?

by Matt Weik

In the sport of bodybuilding, we have seen what seems like politics being played towards some athletes who have made some poor life choices. And it almost seems like some of those bodybuilders who have been in the news and have had rumors spread about some of their lifestyle behaviors have been robbed of some placings at shows. Now, I’m not here to make this article about judging and such, but rather I want to talk about how the industry looks at people who don’t exactly make good choices with their lives and if it will hurt them in the long run in this industry. The topic and focus of this article will be on Nathan De Asha.
