JSF to close in February

After several months of careful consideration, I’ve made the difficult decision to close down John Stone Fitness. I didn’t arrive at this decision easily, but I know it’s the right one. The JSF web site and forums will no longer be available sometime around mid-February. To this day it’s still hard for me to believe that my small personal transformation blog evolved into something so impactful to so many. I’m incredibly proud of the accomplishments… [Read more]

Long overdue update

Hi everyone—I know, it’s been quite some time. Rather than a “formal” check in, I thought I’d just say hello and let you know what’s been going on. Despite a few injuries and setbacks, my cutting diet has gone extremely well. Since January I’m down just a hair under 35 pounds. My waist is down 6 inches, my thighs have shrunk over 4 inches, my hips are down almost 5 inches and I’ve cut my… [Read more]

Myotape 2018 Cut – eight week update

I’ve now completed 8 weeks of my 2018 cut, and I figure now’s a good time for an update. METHODOLOGY: A few words about my body fat test, scale weight and soft tape measurements My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale 2018 Cut – four week update!

Hi folks! I hope everyone is doing well. Today marks the end of the fourth week of my 2018 cut, and so I thought I’d post an update. TL;DR — things are going extremely well so far! When I started this cut I said I was going to be completely strict, and I’ve made 100% good on that commitment. No cheat meals or snacks No alcohol No missed workouts (3 days/wk strength training, 3 days/wk mountain… [Read more]

Another large alligator. Incredible first week of cut; X9 initial impressions

After roughly two years of greatly reduced activity, virtually no weight training, business travel, long days at work, a relaxed (but in all honestly not completely horrible) diet and a gluttonous holiday season, when I started my cut last Monday I was in the worst condition since my initial transformation back in 2003: 210.6 pounds and 20% body fat. That is not a typo. Ouch. I really didn’t want to post that, but this blog… [Read more]

Bodyforce X9 ready to rock! 15th anniversary of the start of my initial transformation

Happy New year! I know it’s late in the day, but I’ve been really busy (more on that further down). Today is the 15th anniversary of the start of my initial transformation, and there’s no way I’m letting this day end without a blog. 🙂 Most of you know my story, but if you don’t, or want to read it again, here it is. So over the past year I’ve not cycled too much, and… [Read more]

Swing Wing rotated down The Bodyforce X9 is here!

Some thought this day would never come: the Bodyforce X9 Hybrid Gym has finally hit the market! My X9 was delivered last Monday, and over the past week I’ve been working on getting it unpacked and installed. Assembling the X9 is not a small job, and I’m still not done. Because I’m still building the machine and have not trained on it yet, all I can give you right now are some basic first impressions,… [Read more]
