Disclaimer & Legal Stuff

I’m sure it goes without saying – but you should always consult with your doctor before starting out on a new diet and fitness programme, especially if you’ve got any underlying medical conditions. This page is a very boring, but necessary,  bunch of legal language – just so I can avoid getting sued (hopefully).

Thing is, though – if you’ve got any questions or queries about the site, or the programme, I’m only at the other end of an email – so please do get in touch!

Everything on this website is the exclusive copyright of Katie Lowe and Matt Peacock (obviously – we wrote it!) and if we find you stealing it without permission, we’ll send someone to break your legs. That’s why I’m building the muscles,duh.

Finally, everything on this website is the product of the first four years of research – but that’s not to say we won’tlearn new things, and incorporate new ideas. However – it works. Clearly. So good luck, and enjoy!
