Online Program Testimonials

“I was fortunate to come across Joe Dowdell and his program just in time for the 28 Day Challenge.  I had been living my life with some bad habits of not sleeping enough, not exercising enough and not eating the right things to support my health.  I had tried a few other programs in the past, but very quickly burnt out on some rather unrealistic schedules and felt I would injure myself continuing with them.  Joe’s program was different.  I very much enjoyed the movement preparation to get my muscles ready to work.  I was challenged, but also didn’t feel like I was going to hurt myself.  Best of all, enough recovery time was built into the program that I was actually able to stick with it.   

With Joe’s guidance, I worked on improving my sleep and eating habits.  Using the calculators on the site, I found that I had not been eating enough, and specifically, enough protein.  I have been making some changes to my diet gradually, and I feel like my energy levels have improved.  I was actually surprised by how much weight I was able to lift, and the increases in my strength were really motivating.

My goals for the 28 days were to lose fat/weight, but most of all to get consistent with caring for my body and health.  My posture has improved and I am sleeping better.  I was surprised by the end of the 28 days to find I had lost 2” off my waist!  I didn’t think my body would make a change like that in that short amount of time.   Thank you so much, Joe.  You’ve been so encouraging and really helped with those mental hurdles of making these changes to my lifestyle.  I’m looking forward to starting my next program which is the 12 Week Beginner In-Home Program for Women and continuing with these skills you’ve helped me learn.”

"When Joe offered this up for free on his social media platforms I figured I had nothing to lose. Wouldn't cost me anything and I could just drop out if I hated it or didn't want to do it. It has been such a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get in shape and start doing something for yourself. 

I was a bit intimidated by doing this, I have not done strength training in a very long time, but Joe was very encouraging by email and helpful in pointing me in the right direction for a few things I needed to buy, to start the program in my home. I downloaded the app and the program is right there at your fingertips, on your phone, which I really like. Totally portable anywhere. You are not trying to be in front of a TV or read complicated instructions. The program is divided up into easily understood and manageable sections, warm up (movement prep), strength blocks and stretching after. 

The best part of the program is, that each exercise/movement he has you do, has an attached video, so you know exactly how to perform them. It was really helpful in the beginning, you are not second-guessing what he means.

Each exercise has a detailed description of what muscles you are working and also suggestions if it is either too easy or too difficult to perform the said exercise. So the program can be tailored to exactly where you are and as you gain strength.

The program paired with the advice he gives you for nutrition really makes for a great way to get started. It has made a huge difference in the 4 weeks I did it, I lost weight, gained strength and confidence which I will continue to build on. Joe was always available by email to answer questions along the way, which was immensely helpful. 

I purchased the 8 Weeks to Creating a Solid Foundation for a Better You Program and look forward to starting that!"

“The DFS plans are “simple”, highly effective and very straightforward. Having access to programs from an elite coach, with an easy to use app and quick responses for support make progress and success very easy. I did the 12 Week Advanced Hypertrophy Program for Men and not only did I add muscle especially in my shoulders and back but my body composition improved significantly and I felt great while doing it.”

12 Week Advanced Hypertrophy For Men

“I was first introduced to Joe and his Peak team about 5 years ago. I would have loved to have had the time to train onsite at Peak but being in the corporate world and trying to juggle family, commuting and sleep it just didn’t fit. Often times, people don’t understand the benefits you get from working out in a gym are not only cosmetic but can also have an equal impact in your professional career. As a result, when Joe launched his app in Mid-January, I was an early adopter and enrolled in the 16 Week Advanced Body Comp Program. Simply put, the program was awesome; it provided great results and Joe was a great coach and incredibly responsive. In order to be successful in business, it requires you to have a great, executable plan. Joe did just that with his App.”
