When I was 39 I worked with a personal trainer for a year to lose weight that had crept on, and he introduced me to Carb Cycling and proper HIIT, tailoring workouts round my injuries. Since moving house, I have no longer been able to use my PT and am ‘on my own’.
I signed up to the 90 Day bikini plan as it seemed a comprehensive resource that complemented the style of training and eating I had become accustomed to. This along with the user group gave me the guidance I was missing from my PT who had been encouraging me to increase calories for some time.
The diet plan was the easy to follow and the recipe book provided me with plenty options to mix things up. This was badly needed for me as I had previously fallen into the trap of eating the same things day in and out.
The workouts were perfect for me. I was used to a serious session and felt I got progress with these. Adding in the HIIT workouts meant I could get some more variety on the days I struggled with injury.
6 months in, (not training religously due to injury) and I dropped from 68kg to 62kg (14lb weight loss). I felt stronger, had more stamina and felt great on my trip to USA.
Although these pictures are not great, I can see a huge difference in my face and body! Life can easily get in the way and I have gained a little weight back, but the plan gives me the tools to dip back in and get back to where I want to be easily…
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rudy’s plans. There is something for everyone.

I’ve been on so many diet and eating plans I have lost count! However, Rudy has created a plan which is so easy to follow! The workouts are easy to understand and flexible and the eating plan doesn’t restrict or cut out foods. Within the first three weeks I lost 15cm from all over my body! I cannot explain how awesome this program is!

All I a can say is purchasing 90 day bikini plan is the best thing I have ever done!! Honestly I was very skeptical at first but after reading the manual and understanding how the carb cycling and macros worked I knew this was something I could do. I didn’t have much weight to lose. I mainly wanted to build muscle and get lean, I lost a total of 4 pounds and lost inches off my waist, hips and thigs. I am thrilled with my muscles definition especially in my upper body.
I love the support I received from you and the FB group. Everyone is positive in their remarks. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get healthy and see results. Thanks you for personally responding to all my group posts and being so supportive.
What can I say??? I love 90 Day Bikini plan!!
I am 54 years and I have never seen myself so determined to transform.
All of Rudy’s workout plans are easy to read and understand, delivering rapid results – they work! With the help of Rudy blogs, the support of his group to encourage my fitness goals, and research to find what works best for my body, I am in the best shape of my life!! I am not stopping here.
I will continue to improve, you will see!!

Rudy I cannot express or say enough great things about you and your program. Everyone I meet ask me who my trainer is, what program, am I in competition prep etc. …the amount of confidence, support and knowledge you and your program have given me is amazing. Thank you so much! The best part? I keep just getting better/stronger. Thanks again.
Before using this program, I was at a plateau. I was hovering around 160 lbs despite training hard and watching what I ate. The 90 day plan gave me new insight to foods and workouts that led me to drop 11 lbs, and now I am at 149lbs, and feel better than ever. The programs are easy to follow, the macros have an option for everybody, and the results speak for themselves. Looking forward to more results!
I have completed the 90 day bikini plan, and literally my body shrank. It looks live I’ve been vacuum packed! Everything tightened, muscles popped out, and my skin has never looked as plump and healthy. I continued with MAD straight after and now have only a week to go, to finish it.
My body has had a total transformation. With Rudy’s plans and scientific knowledge on nutrition, and exercises, it has changed my life forever. I wish I knew all this when I was young! Thanks Rudy, and to all the FB group who constantly support and encourage each other.

Between the 90 day bikini program, 30 days of HIIT, his delicious macro cookbook, private Facebook page and now his supplements (which are safer and smarter than anything you will find in a nutritional store): Rudy Mawer has created my absolute one stop shop for incredible workouts. Flexible (and sustainable) nutrition, smart, safe supplements, and a tremendous community of support.
Not only has my already active and fit physique experienced rapid changes, but I’ve come to enjoy nutrition, rather than feeling I am being restrictive. To have access to his expertise in combination with money back guaranteed results but not to try his programs, is a disservice to what you can achieve.

“I cannot say enough great things about Rudy’s 90 day bikini program. It’s everything that I’ve been looking for in a workout plan and more. The workout plan pushed me further each week, to get the results I was looking for. I was able to slim down and see more muscle definition each week. The workouts were always switched up to keep your muscles guessing and help accelerate your results. It was easy to follow and laid out perfectly.
The eating plan was perfect. I didn’t feel like I was starving or bored with the food, and loved how I was able to cycle my macros. I definitely got the results I was looking for in the 90 day bikini program, and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to lose weight and gain muscle. I’ve tried other fitness plans, and they were all generic without much variety. With Rudy’s, I felt that the plan was specifically tailored for me. I can’t wait to do the program again after my pregnancy! I know I will get the results I’m looking for!”
