I am currently not taking on more Coaching clients. However, go check out sustainableselfdevelopment.com (also ask to join the SSD Facebook Group here), where I will soon launch a training and nutrition program, and the option to participate in a group coaching format. I will also offer 1-to-1 coaching within this group, at a later time.
My name is Borge Fagerli, and if you’ve followed me for a while through the media and social media, read my articles, been to one of my courses or lectures, or seen the results of my clients, you’ve probably gotten some impression of what you can achieve by working with me.
But let me tell you the whole story:
During my childhood and youth, I was never a winner at anything. Not even in Checkers or Monopoly.
I was skinny, and often sick with asthma, bronchitis, and allergies.
Not really the natural first choice for the winning team when we were playing soccer on the local field.
My strongest muscle was to be my brain.
I learned how to read when I was four years old, sitting on my Grandfather’s lap and reading out loud from Donald Duck comics. I taught myself algebra in 2nd grade of Elementary school when I found my father’s math books from High School in the back of a closet, and I would read through them in bed before falling asleep.
Yup, I was a nerd…
My curiosity was insatiable. I just HAD to figure out how things were put together, and I would dismantle every toy I got.
I am now 43 years old, and my biggest passion in life is to figure out how the human body works, and how I can make it work even better.
It’s been a long and tough journey, with many mistakes and detours.
The school of life has been rough on me – but today I’m happy to have acquired the knowledge from both the ups and downs. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for all the struggles I’ve had to endure.
When I cracked the “code” with my diet, training, and (more important than you think) – my lifestyle (stress, sleep, biorhythm) – I started to get results.
I have never had the classic good looks (and that’s the understatement of the year), but I’m still proud of what I have achieved.
This was my best shape about 10 years ago, after a period of hard training – but a meal plan where I just ate whenever I was hungry (also called ad libitum) but chose specific foods that I knew was good for me.
With everything I have learned on this journey, I can now comfortably maintain a great condition all year without having to stress or worry about what or how much to eat all the time, count calories or spend endless of hours at the gym.
You can achieve this, too with the knowledge I will share with you.
The great irony is that when I found something that worked for me, it always worked a 2-3x better for everyone else who followed my methods.
Instead of ruining my self-confidence, I found a strange happiness in seeing others achieve amazing progress when I shared my knowledge with them.
The natural chain of events led me to become a coach and a mentor, and I can honestly say I have the best job in the world!
My background as an engineer has enabled me to put my methods into a step-by-step system that can transform your health, appearance and your performance – both mentally and physically.
When working with me, you invest in 20 years of experience with thousands of clients on every possible level, from beginners to world champions. Those who made it all the way to the top have been regular people who didn’t imagine they could ever get to where they got.
My big passion is to figure out how I can maximize the unique potential of everyone I choose to work with, and my methods have also been adapted to the individual.
I am the man behind the Norwegian training system called “Release your potential”, the nutritional model “The BioRhythm Diet” based on recent understandings of circadian rhythms, and “Myo-reps” – one the most time-efficient and effective training methods ever created.
I am also the founder of MyRevolution, a manufacturer of sports nutrition and diet supplements, where I currently work part-time as the product manager and head of Research & Development.
I am referred to as one of the leading experts in the field, both nationally and internationally.
I have appeared as a consultant and lecturer in international venues, in the press and the digital media, and I am the author of hundreds of articles and several E-books.
I have also been a teacher at the Academy For Personal Training (AFPT), as well as the Elite Trainer and Rehab Trainer branches of their curriculum for several years.
I have collaborated with several internationally acknowledged coaches and authors, such as The Energy Blueprint (click for free video course) with Ari Whitten, CyberneticFitness.com (coming soon) with Menno Henselmans, and Neuro Typing with Christian Thibeaudeau.
I have developed methods and strategies that no one else have put together into a coherent system before, and I say that with the humble awareness that there is still much to learn.
Methods to get YOU in your best condition ever!
You will obviously experience changes you can see in the mirror, but the improvements you will experience in energy levels, stress levels, confidence and mental focus are far more tangible and important long-term.
My 100% success guarantee
Yes, that is correct.
I can offer you a 100% success guarantee on your investment!
This is obviously a huge promise that requires commitment, and I need to be selective with who I choose to work with, and how many clients I can take on at any one time.
How to Figure Out if You’re the One I Want to Work With:
The one I’m looking for is at a point in his or her life where they’re ready to make some big changes, and prepared to see some amazing results in their health, performance and appearance.
If the results are to become a permanent part of your life and something sustainable you can have for years and decades to come, you need to put the highest priority on this process.
These changes will require you to commit the time, focus and willingness to trust me as your mentor and coach.
If you feel like you’re not ready to make the changes right now, then that’s fine. You’re more than welcome to come back to this page when you’ve taken the steps needed to give yourself this gift.
But if you’re thinking that NOW is the time to take the step in the right direction and make a significant difference in your life…
And if you feel ready to pull the trigger…
Then you can keep on reading.
This is My VIP Coaching Program
There are many aspects that will separate your results from everyone else’s.
You’re not just getting a “recipe” to follow – a pre-determined prescription for success based on anyone’s success with a few highly trainable or talented individuals.
You’re not getting a standardized meal plan with chicken, rice and broccoli six times a day. Or a training program with 3 sets of 10 reps on exercises that aren’t suitable for you or your body.
And you’re not getting a list of “think positive” affirmations and generic mental trainer opinions from someone with limited real-world experience.
To get a better grasp of what you get and what it’s like to work with me, take a look at some of the stories told by a few of the people I have worked with:
Case 1: Trond
Trond Nordahl Amundsen is a former elite athlete, with over ten years of sales- and leadership experience in property, stock trading, and investment banking. He’s been ranked among the top 10 in the world in stock trading at DNB, and among the top 3 in Norway in real estate at Privatmegleren. Today he’s a professional investor and investment manager.
In his own words:
“I contacted Børge to get help with finding a comfortable weight after a tough year at work. Together we found a plan with different lifestyle changes, meal plans and training programs suited for me, which I could easily apply into my daily routines.
For a gentleman who thought he knew a lot about training and diet, I quickly got an understanding of how much I still needed to learn in this exciting field. Borge is amazing at varying between being serious and professional at one point and then being a funny and warm person in the next.
At the same time, he is humble in his appearance, and there is no air of arrogance to him as I have experienced with some other experts. He is solid, knowledgeable and trustworthy, and gets the message across in a way that makes it easy to relate to.
On the plan, which got adjusted weekly, my shape improved quickly, without interfering with my job or social life, which is very important to me.
I slept better in the night, my stress levels dropped significantly, and I experienced a major improvement in focus and mental performance. Borge is really one of the best investments I have ever made on both a private and a professional level.
Case 2: Svein
I’ve been working with Svein for periods of 3-4 months, interspersed with a few months on his own, and then another 1-2 months with me. We have been working together for approximately 3 years. He wanted to remain anonymous.
“When I read through the experiences of Børge’s clients on his website it’s hard to come up with something new to talk about. At least when you’re trying to add to the contribution of this man in a short and concise manner.
I have no “dramatic” story. I’ve never been anorexic, I’ve never been Norway’s Strongest Man, I’ve never been posing in trunks on a stage, and I’m not old enough to be where I need to regain my youthful health.
This is my story:
I was an avid reader of different websites, blogs, and forums. For the so-called experts behind these websites to stay relevant, it was obvious that they had to spit out articles that really didn’t contribute to the readers’ progress even though they had appealing headlines.
After a while, I came across this Borge Fagerli, who had a great reputation and always got positive reviews. I thought I would try to invest in one of his coaching packages. If nothing else, I could at least get a look at his “magic” training plan and diet and that would for sure secure the perfect beach body forever.
As an analytical and mathematically proficient engineer, I should be able to learn the methods of the Master throughout these weeks.
Well, one coaching-package turned into many, and here I am.
What many personal trainers, online coaches or experts and authors don’t tell us is that you could be slimmer, bigger and healthier by having good routines be a part of your life instead of letting it be your whole life.
An illustrating example: A year or so ago, a friend of mine wanted to set me up with one of her girlfriends.
When this girl saw a workout picture I had on my Facebook profile (*cough* douchebag *cough*) her response was: “No way, he probably eats broccoli and chicken all day, and cares only about his own muscles. I’m not interested in that”.
Fortunately, we did go on a date.
We’re still dating, and she has on many occasions expressed how happy she is with how relaxed I am towards food and training – even though I have a body which indicates that I’m not.
With Borge you’re not only buying a product, a set of different strength exercises, a meal plan you get tired of after a week, or the temporary validation of a couple of Instagram likes.
You invest in yourself, in the life you want to live and everything else associated with the words “growth” and “transformation”.
My progress from 2012-2015:
Bodyweight: 96-98 kg (My comment: From the pictures, you would think the weight gain would be higher, but this is the visual impact of dropping bodyfat% and building muscle at the same time)
Squat: 125 x 3 -> 170 x 3
Bench press: 120 x 3 -> 165 x 2
RDL (Romanian Deadlift): 70 X 9 -> 200 X 1
OHP (Overhead/shoulder press): 55 x 6 -> 110 x 2
From: Protein shakes, counting calories etc → To: Eating when I’m hungry
From: Knowing nothing about posing and lighting -> To: Still knowing nothing about posing, but I got myself some new underwear…
— Svein E- “
Case 3: Karl Eirik
A striking visual transformation!
Karl Eirik, 36 years old, Financial Manager, has been a very pleasant acquaintance to work with.
His highest priority was, first of all, to improve his energy and focus for both family and work, and secondly to improve body composition. I have a holistic approach and implement better food and exercise habits, but also advise on the daily routines and habits to create a synergistic effect and overall improvement in the whole person.
This is the feedback I got, just over halfway in our VIP Coaching program:
“After several years of poor stress management, repeated antibiotic treatments and regressing training progress, I was fortunate to get a spot on the VIP Coaching program with Borge.
The goal of the follow-up was primarily to be stable, boost energy levels, and increase muscle mass.
At our first conversation before getting started, I had bronchitis, eye inflammation, and a severe herpes outbreak. Hard work was my philosophy, but I crashed hard into the wall over and over again.
The frustration was overwhelming with all the time and energy I invested in optimizing my health and still getting nowhere. With my impatient nature, I was probably not easy to be around at home, and I was miles away from performing the way I wanted to at work.
Countless self-development books, and well-formulated (or so I thought) diet and exercise regimes ended up with further stagnation, so the helplessness just felt insurmountable in the end.
Energy and muscle growth was apparently not possible for me. Endless visits to health services and the condition known as “fuckarounditis” were certain to be my destiny.
I have been following Borge for many years, and when I visited his website and saw that he offered his VIP coaching program, I immediately contacted him. His story of his own challenges over the years was something I could relate strongly to. In addition, I had complete trust in his skills and liked his philosophy, and was impressed with the results he had achieved with both his clients and himself.
Time to pull the proverbial trigger.
Demanding projects at work were finished, being the night watchman for our newborn daughter was over, and the new house was completed.
All that was left for me was to decide that nothing would stop me and I was 100% committed to doing what I was told.
The plan I received was tailored to me and was easy to follow.
I quickly noticed positive changes in energy, mental clarity, patience and calm, hormones, loss of bodyfat, muscle growth and strength. It’s not difficult to maintain motivation when you experience such a comprehensive and immediate positive experience.
Børge led me continuously on the right track to make the right choices and meaningful priorities, past my ego and my blindspots, which I gradually realized were greater than I had been aware of. I learned a lot about listening to the body and trusting my intuition. This was all unfamiliar to me but extremely valuable to realize.
After 8 weeks, my bodyfat had dropped from about 18-20% to 8-9%, with strength gains of up to 20% on most exercises.
I almost couldn’t recognize myself in the mirror. The belly was gone, I finally had the coveted sixpack abs, muscles and veins were popping out everywhere. Inflammation and various aches were gone, and the soreness after workouts was almost imperceptible. It was also rewarding to be able to inspire my friends and family by showing how they also could improve their health through simple choices and daily routines.
There is a lot I want to achieve in life and have always been keen to develop. However, if you are not healthy or have energy, it is impossible to have the focus and persistence to follow through.
The sense of achievement I got from incorporating these new and better habits finally made me see and experience the progress I had longed for. This gave me increased confidence and self-esteem.
Of course, I wanted to change everything at once, a strategy that had always failed, because I had been too impatient and not done things correctly or in the right order. Borge guided me with a steady hand through everything so that my progress was consistent and better than I could have imagined.
Borge brings out the best in you in an authentic and natural way, sets in motion processes in you that remove all the constraints you thought you had and makes the right choices easier to see.
I will always look back on this period as the most important turning point of my life.
– Karl Eirik”.
Case 3: Haakon
The lighting makes the before-picture a bit unfair, but there’s no doubt about the impressive change from week 1 to 12.
Haakon dropped his bodyfat from 18% to 8% (as measured by calipers) while increasing his strength by 20-30% in every exercise during a 3-month coaching.
He had a very overanalytical approach to everything he did, he was stressed out in everyday life and constantly criticising his own body – and didn’t manage to find a plan that worked for him.
As soon as we started the coaching, progress took off. Over time, as I optimized the plan according to what was happening on a weekly basis, we implemented a few simple strategies to his everyday life, as well as some solid adjustments to his mental game, and his progress was even better.
Haakon’s impressive results are a consequence of him making a conscious choice of trusting me, and consistently adhering to the plan and guidelines that I gave him.
When he got the knowledge he needed from me and could ignore all the misinformation and myths you will find everywhere online, he could finally relax and enjoy the ride, focusing all of his energy into the larger and more important things in life.
Haakon requested to be anonymous.
In his own words:
“I’ve really had the time of my life when it comes to training with you as a coach, Borge. I feel like you know my body a hundred times better than I do, and I look forward to every day because I know that everything I do is an investment in my own body and health.
I keep learning new things and I see the connection between the plan that you have designed and my lifestyle, and my understanding of how everything works together is falling into place piece by piece. I’m also noticing how much better I feel when following your guidelines, compared before when I felt totally miserable if I didn’t get a certain amount of calories and grams of protein.
Now I’m almost always fully rested, have lots of energy, and feel better both mentally and physically.
I sincerely thank you for what you’ve done for me these 12 weeks, and I look forward to working together in the future!
Case 4: Sverre
Sverre was a lot of fun to work with. He had frequented the gym for many years without any appreciable progress. His wife had a baby on the way, and with a job as a real estate agent, it wasn’t easy to balance everything.
In just a few weeks on a structured training program, his strength increased noticeably. The meal plan was adjusted to his needs and was combined with both a hectic workday and with social events and family.
The positive outcomes from increased focus and energy levels were tangible, and it was always entertaining when he reported back to me about his progress. To put it like this, if Sverre hadn’t been in real estate, he could’ve been a stand-up comedian or TV host.
“Everyone has their weak spots that they want to change. We love these “recipes” of how to achieve the body of your dreams in the media and from various experts online.
I’ve tried them all because I also would like to have a tight butt, broad shoulders, swelling biceps and everything else I have been promised in only 6-8 weeks or less.
As a gym member since 1994, I have only confirmed that it wasn’t at all like they all claimed. I don’t have swelling biceps, my butt isn’t something you would want to put on a Christmas tree and my shoulders…
No, they never really got any wider.
As Borge says, these articles are appealing to our internal laziness and comfort zones. And to mine. If I had an ergometer bike powering the TV at home, I would be the world’s slimmest and fittest, and my efforts would provide an immediate payback for the effort.
In my world – I can invest in something, but then I want a return on that investment. Preferably immediately, and preferably in some sort of reward.
This ris the way our society is structured, and this is what I do in my job as a real estate agent.
I constantly look for ways to sell properties in a shorter amount of time, still providing a high quality.
I will either make more money, or I make more time. For me, having time for leisure and my family is my main motivation, but the means to an end is the same. I want more in return for the time and effort I have invested.
We’re not only affluent but also impatient. And if there’s one thing that the media has figured out, it is appealing to our discontent in how we look and feel, and sell us a dream of perfection.
This was my revelation and the reason for becoming one of Borge’s clients. I realized that trying to make changes without a plan was meaningless, and the plan and constant feedback I have gotten from him is the closest thing to a miracle cure I can think of – just one that I can use for the rest of my life instead just for a short-term project.
I’m not a World champion, Norwegian champion or even a Regional champion.
But I have become the best version of myself, and the positive changes in my physical health and a mind that operates quicker and clearer has been a pleasure to both myself, my wife and my colleagues.
Are you thinking that results like these are unachievable to you?
None of these success stories are exceptional talents.
They are regular people, like you and me.
They achieved success because they followed a logical and intuitive system. If you work with me and implement this system, you will experience comparable results.
And not only are you going to change your body…
Every other area of your life will be affected positively:
- your work and career
- your social life with family, friends and loved ones
- your performance and mental game in the gym and in the kitchen
You’ll develop your passion and discover that untapped, powerful potential burning inside of you.
A healthier lifestyle is going to give you the motivation and focus that you need to succeed in everything!
When you set a goal, you will learn how to reach your goals and enjoy the journey. You will have the fortitude and energy to manifest your dreams, a body that people will respect and admire, and a way to live out your full potential.
So… Are you ready to become the next story of success?
Just keep the following in mind:
I’m fully booked with waiting lists, so I need to be selective about who I want to work with.
I’m also limiting how many I can work with because I want to get to know you better, give you the most personal experience possible, and be able to guide you step-by-step on your journey.
We will interact regularly through one-to-one conversations online (Skype, Facetime, Messenger), coaching you in what you need to succeed, an individually tailored plan based on a thorough screening, and evaluated and adjusted as we go.
For all of this to happen, you need to commit to at least 3 months of my VIP coaching.
This is also the only way to offer I can offer my 100 % success guarantee, and it is going to demand some substantial changes and a lot of new knowledge. You need to change your approach to food, training, and the mental game completely, and I have developed a set of cognitive techniques to achieve dramatic and permanent changes to achieve sustainability after our coaching has ended.
My life’s purpose is to help you change your life for the better.
To be chosen, the most important requirement is that you can commit to implement and follow through on my teachings.
