Hugo Rivera's Body Re-Engineering (Part 1)
By Tom Venuto
Hugo Rivera's Body Re-Engineering (Part 1) I'm not impressed easily, but Hugo Rivera is one damn impressive bodybuilder. Hugo not only took top 5 in his class at the Team Universe -- the pinnacle of natural, amateur bodybuilding in the National Physique Committee, he also took 4th place at the NPC USA. And THAT was a big deal, because Hugo -- who is "natural for life" -- held his own in a contest where they don't drug test! That's why I was so pleased to get this interview. When you finish reading this one, stay tuned, because Hugo promised me another a "Part 2" which will be even more personal and more revealing. . . . . . keep reading

 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!"
Sarah Cecile
