Endurance Athlete

Arkady Hagopian transformed his 240 pound (40% body fat) 'health wreck' body into a 162 pound, 10% body fat, high-performance endurance athlete. He used to hyperventilate when walking up a flight of stairs but now he runs marathons and competes in one of the world's toughest endurance events - the Ironman triathlon. He does this all while maintaining a muscular physique.

Arkady has competed in over 40 endurance events since 2007, including century rides, nearly 20 marathons, 4 ultra marathons with distances ranging 31-56 miles, 4 Ironman-distance triathlons, a 4.8 mile swim event, and numerous other shorter running and multisport/discipline events. At almost any given weekend, when not racing, it's a safe bet that Arkady can be found either putting hours on his bike on the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California, swimming in the beautiful shores of the Pacific Ocean, or running up and down steep mountains in the Santa Monica Mountain range.

While endurance training and racing is a lifestyle for Arkady, his true passion lies in helping others reach for their dreams. In addition to privately working with individuals, Arkady has coached for many groups and charities including The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, World Vision, and is responsible for hundreds of athletes crossing the finish line of a variety of endurance events ranging from half marathons, to Ironman-distance triathlons, to ultramarathons. He is currently the organizer of the Santa Monica Running Group (SMRG) and the founder/head coach of the SMRG Training Program, a completely FREE, fully coached & supported training group for the 13.1 Los Angeles and the LA Marathon. Read more about Arkady at his blog: http://ironcut.blogspot.com

We are very pleased to announce that Arkady is now our resident endurance training expert. He is here to answer all your questions about endurance sports - running, cycling swimming and triathalon in particular - and how you can combine the Burn The Fat, Feed the Muscle lifestyle with endurance training.

By Arkady Hagopian
Should You Eat Protein Before Endurance Trainining Or Only Carbs? Should you be eating (or drinking) protein before running or other types of endurance training?

 TESTIMONIALS

Here's what people are saying about Burn The Fat and the Inner Circle...


"Tom Venuto is a credible, qualified professional who knows his stuff. More than that, he has a genuine concern for the people he's helping. His "Inner Circle" is a premier quality resource - well worth the money, and a benefit to anyone, anywhere, of any age who is trying to lose weight. I highly recommend it!"

Paul Crane, UltimateFatBurner.com

"I'll be at the Inner Circle forever. I dont think I'm every going away again. When I am there, I always feel really good, on top of the world. The people are so kind and helpful. I'm so very grateful to Tom Venuto and the whole family here in the Burn the Fat Inner Circle. This really has changed my life."

"I just listened to the first "Burn the Fat Show" and this one 20-minute message is at the top of my list. I have motivational CD's and books coming out the wazoo and you've set a standard in your show that I look forward to listening to again and again. Keep up the GREAT work!"."

Steve Wiebusch

The support here is incredible for my morale. I'm excited about the inches I've lost. In the past when I'd get halfway there, I'd lose motivation and quit. I've never made it this far and still felt motivated to keep going. "

Rikki Fougere


"I have many people everyday ask me what my secret is and how I lost 137 pounds. I tell them the same thing - I use Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat - Feed The Muscle program and it all boils down to "How bad do you want it?"
Mike Ogorek



"I've been following the Burn The Fat recommendations and I now fit into a pair of jeans that I havent worn in a long time. The Salvation Army must love me these days, as I've liberated 12 clothes hangers and two shelves of oversized clothes since New Years!"
