“Joining Rudy Mawer’s team opened up a world of opportunities for me and is without doubt, THE BEST career choice I have ever made. The fitness industry was a new venture for me starting here, but Rudy personally helped me understand and thrive to better my skills as a marketer and as an individual. I was given the freedom to exercise my ideas and techniques to the fullest to help others live a healthier life and contribute to the companies exponential growth.

Rudy is truly an expert in his field, and is extremely hands on in all aspects of the business which helps accelerate the entire company and energize the team unlike anything I have ever seen before. This definitely isn’t like any other job, and thats a good thing!

“I have been incredibly fortunate to work for professional-sport powerhouses such as the NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS. I can confidently say that working with Rudy has been an opportunity of a lifetime.

While the freedom to work from any location in the world would seemingly be the most attractive quality about an opportunity with this company, it really lies within the personal development and professional growth aspects. The latter are unequivocally superior to what most other businesses can provide and Rudy does an incredible job at fostering an environment that gives you a desire to improve. His values and work ethic have pushed me to hold myself to a higher standard, elevating my work ethic and efficiency, thus increasing my professional value. You are the average of the five people you most associate with – make Rudy one of those five.”

“I always like to say I work with Rudy Mawer, not for him, because he is always keen to have a close relationship with his employees. In addition to feeling like I have a vital role in the business, being able to work remotely has easily been one of this company’s greatest perks. I could have a summer internship, attend classes–all while also working with Rudy.

I started at only age 21, and I’ve been lucky to learn from Rudy continuously and as the company grows, I grow. It feels less and less like a job, and more like a project that I’ve been able to be a part of, and able to help build with the rest of the company’s community. Not one person who works for this company gives less than 110%, and that’s extremely rare to find.”

“I originally joined Rudy’s team after working in the corporate industry ever since I graduated. I was initially worried about the change in profession as I had only worked as a freelancer in the fitness and nutrition field for the previous 6 years. Rudy and his team were very pro-active in their approach to coaching, training and improving each employee, both in their job and as an individual.

The company offers a great opportunity to learn a lot and develop essential life skills. Overall, it has given me the opportunity to work in an international and culturally diverse environment where I can communicate with the team remotely whilst doing what I love best – travelling. The entire team blends really well together, and as a trio we all deliver excellent customer service. For all these reasons, I would recommend it to anyone as a great place to work and excel – so apply now!”

“Working for Rudy changed the course of my life forever. The value of being a part of his business went far beyond the payroll and the ability to work remotely on my terms. Rudy exposed me to a plethora of personal development avenues and always pushed me to open my mind to new possibilities and concepts. He taught me many things but the most important probably being that the success of any person or business stems from having the proper mindset.

This strong mindset is something that permeates Rudy’s business culture. In fact, Rudy’s investment in me as an employee and friend allowed me to grow so much personally and professionally that I gained the skills and confidence necessary to begin my own business. I know for a fact this would have been painstakingly delayed or nonexistent altogether if it had not been for Rudy’s successful role as a boss and mentor.”

“Joining the Rudy Mawer team was a unique opportunity to grow both as an individual and become part of something special from an early stage of its inception. More than two decades of professional experience has taken a toll, as it has been one struggle after the next to find a team of like-minded individuals, who are absolutely passionate about their work, and constantly strive to put their experience, skills and knowledge to the test – to push forward and excel in every aspect of what we do.

Not only are we building an amazingly well-oiled machine – we are building upon ourselves, as we have the opportunity to hone and expand our own capabilities, which is absolutely invaluable. If you are passionate about what you do, and you dream of really making a difference – look no further. This is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle.”


Ok, so enough about us; here are some of the key benefits for you. Before we dive in, I would like you to think back to the beginnings of Google, Facebook or Instagram. While we aren’t comparing ourselves to enterprises of that scale, in the context for our industry / niche and growth rate, we are aligned with those big names you see and use every day.

Now, imagine if you got to backtrack 10 or 20 years and become one of the first or top 10 team members of those successful organizations – what kind of opportunity would that be? In the context of our industry, basically that is exactly the same position we find ourselves in here.

Despite already being extremely successful and well-established, we are still relatively young and, as Rudy Mawer the CEO always states, “only 1% of the way into our journey”. Imagine where we will all be in 5, 10 or 15 years. So, if you are willing to commit, it will be the best career move you ever make and the best possible time to get involved, being a core asset and key piece of the puzzle, helping us grow into a 100-million-dollar company and becoming the first name anyone thinks of when it comes to fat loss and physique optimization.

While it may be hard for some people to envisage the future, hopefully, if you’ve landed on this page, you are already smart enough to see the bigger picture and vision. With that being said, here are some of the other highly unique short-term and immediate benefits you get by ditching the typical 9-5 grind, freelance or gym work.

  • Work from where you want, from the beaches of Hawaii to the mountains of New Zealand, you can truly work and locate yourself wherever you wish. All you need is a fast laptop and high-speed internet!

  • Wake up when you want, without an alarm, every single day of your life…
  • Spend more time with friends, family and doing the things you love in life, with our flexible schedule.

Our Mission

To become the world’s leading authority changing millions of lives with unbiased, helpful science-backed fitness and nutrition education that’s easily accessible to all.


As you can hopefully now see, we aren’t seeking out regular or average people.
We firmly believe that for us to reach our mission, goals and help millions of people we must recruit the top 1% of the industry, with unique mindsets, work ethic, goals and a proven track record of being an extraordinary individual throughout life.

If you’ve always been average, with average goals, motivation and mindset you simply won’t cut the high-speed natural that we all thrive on here at If you ask anyone who knows Rudy they will all talk about his unique ability to produce work at 10x the average rate, which has allowed him to build a multi-million business by the age of 26, and begin his own real estate business from the age of 18, with his first company starting at just 13 years old.

With that being said, if you spend your days looking around the office, gym or in any public area and knowing you stand out from the crowd, this could be the perfect place for you thrive, grow and actually be valued for your extraordinary ability.

  • An extraordinary track record of being the best at what you do, from fitness knowledge, coaching, marketing to building websites. Whatever your niche, you must be in the top 1%.
  • Be able to work daily from a laptop, with a fast and reliable internet connection.
  • Be able to put in the hours and overtime when needed – we often do 18 hour days when required. Your career and this business should become a key aspect and focus of your life.

  • Be familiar with the brand, who we are, what we stand for and what we do, etc.
  • Commitment to long-term relationships and a long-term role; we do not want people who are just here for 6 or 12 months. We spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours investing in our staff and training them, so we want people who plan to grow and stick around for 5, 10 or 15 years.
  • Able to make this their only or core focus – we do not want people with other companies, multiple contracts, 3 jobs or a bunch of personal training clients on the side.
  • Be extremely efficient and grinding through 30 tasks a day, extremely organized and focused. Because of the company’s growth, revenue and active users, you’ll often be in roles where just one simple mistake could cost $10,000 in just a few hours. We require unique people who are extremely organized and have exacting attention to detail.
  • Able to be online all day, most days during the initial months of training, then with more flexibility as the role progresses.
  • Happy to start as a contractor/freelancer, responsible for own taxes.
  • Be happy to sign a NDA guaranteeing to never legally disclose our systems, your job role and our content, or personal information to anyone outside of the company.
  • Be happy to sign a 2 year non-compete, meaning you cannot perform similar roles for similar companies or in a similar fashion for 2 years after finishing any and all work at Rudy Mawer Consulting LLC.
  • Have sufficient insurances for your appropriate role.

“Working for Rudy over the past few months has been an amazing experience. Being able to work alongside someone who is as knowledgeable and passionate as Rudy, is a great learning opportunity for me. I met Rudy during our undergraduate studies, from that point on it was clear to be that he was going to be successful and have a huge impact in the fitness industry, I didn’t quite believe that he would be as successful as he is, and for me it is a great opportunity to develop my knowledge and support with the growth of this great organisation.

When I sit back and think about the work we do and how many people’s lives we impact, I am delighted to be able to doing something so positive and being part of such a strong and gifted team.”

“Working with Rudy has been a great opportunity! It isn’t very often that you find such a high level individual who makes himself so available for his employees. You can tell from the moment you start working with him, that he is a genuine guy who highly values everyone on his team.

The team is very organized and everyone knows their role and communicates very efficiently. It is nice to know that the work you’re doing is making a direct impact on people. If you’re looking to join a team that is hard working, efficient and dedicated, you’ll find it working on this team. This is unlike any other team I’ve been apart of.

“At first I thought this would just be part time, but, watching the companies rapid growth it quickly turned into a real career opportunity. While working with Rudy, I’ve had the opportunity to practice skills and truly help others to the extent I had only envisioned prior.

I’ve been able to grow personally in ways that I’ve always wanted and I’ve been able to do it with flexibility, allowing me to truly pursue my desires and get a great work life balance. Providing real, scientific-based practice to individuals has always been my goal. Working with Rudy has provided me with an outlet to finally see that goal through. If you’re at all interested in the prospect of working in the fitness community outside of the realm of a gym, working with Rudy is the gold standard.”

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.

Frances M, 42, Scotland

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!

Lauren G, Melbourne, Australia.

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.

Nan Johnson

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!!

Esthelita F, Texas, USA

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.

Martine R.

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!

Meg N.

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.

Laura, Scotland, UK

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.

Jaclyn G., age 40, Omaha, NE


“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!”
