“IF YOU WANT TO BE A LION, YOU MUST TRAIN WITH LIONS.”

CARLSON GRACIE

Tom…..this week of training has been incredible. I have “lifted” for the past 15 years. This week was the first time I ever felt like I actually “trained”. It was a humbling yet invigorating week. I’m excited to progress in your system and look forward to how 40 years old is gonna look on me!!! 

Jesse Johnson

Does this sound familiar?

You want to feel strong, confident, and energetic…like an athlete…ready to conquer whatever your personal, professional, and social life throws at you.

You know you need to get fit, but don’t know where to start. You know you need to start, but don’t know what to do. You think you know what to do, but the more you learn the more you get confused. If you have a plan you know will work, you’re willing to do the work on that plan.

You have a nagging feeling that you’re capable of so much more…physically, emotionally, and mentally.

You’re in the right place.

I came into VIGOR Training without any real experience to weight training. The results in percent body fat loss, skeletal muscle gain, and overall weight loss have been life-changing.

VIGOR TRAINING IS 1 MEMBERSHIP WITH
ACCESS TO 4 TRAINING TEAMS.

What’s included with the VIGOR Training membership?

Simplicity. You walk into the gym, open an app on your phone, and know exactly what to do, based on the program I designed for that day. Your plan includes:

  • Daily “readiness” questionnaire: Keep an eye on trends in stress levels, recovery, and energy levels
  • Periodized training program: Annual programming with 6-12 week training blocks based on specific fitness goals (i.e. strength, conditioning, lean mass, speed, power, etc.)
  • Exercise, set, rep prescriptions: Specified training variables to make ensure you get the results expected in each training session
  • Training history record: Sets and reps are saved after recording them for reference during future training sessions to help ensure you push yourself beyond past performances
  • Video/written exercise instructions: No need to guess how to do something. I’ll choose or upload a video that shows you how, and provide additional tweaks when necessary to get the most from each exercise

Your membership gives you access to all training teams. When you’re ready, you can advance from one team to the next.

This mom, career woman and coach appreciates how organized and user the friendly each workout is. If you don’t know a movement is, there is a video right there to watch to gain a clear understanding of how to perform it properly.

OTHER COMMON QUESTIONS

Do you design the training plans yourself, or are they generic "canned" programs?

I design all the training plans myself. That’s why it’s worth at least $29 per month, instead of using a generic app with no intelligence behind it for $10 a month.

I also use the VIGOR(ESS) Strength Athlete plan for my own training. I stay a week ahead of the rest of the team so I can make sure I set up the plan correctly.

Is there a difference in the training program for men and women?

The training programs are the same. However, more women follow VEA, and more guys follow VSA. That’s not to say that one program is better than the other. It’s more a matter of how VIGOR Strength Athlete fits with the goals of more men, and VIGOR Everyday Athlete fits with the goals of more women.

That said, the Facebook groups that compliment the training program are gender specific. The VIGOR Training Facebook group is just for guys, and the VIGOR(ESS) Facebook group is just for women, other than me of course.

The “guys-only” and “ladies-only” groups lend to more open conversations among the group members.

If I don't want to join a gym, can I still do the program?

To get the most out of VIGOR(ESS) Training, you need:

  • Barbell
  • Plates with weights totalling at least 200 lbs to start with
  • Dumbbells up to at least 50 lbs to start with
  • Squat rack with pull-up attachement
  • Adjustable bench

Though you can probably find all of this equipment for a good deal on Craig’s list, I strongly recommend joining a gym. You’re more likely to follow through with your training plan when you’re around other people getting fit.

Do I have to sign up for multiple months or do some sort of contract?

Nope. Your membership is month-to-month, so if you want to cancel, just contact me at least 48 hours before your next charge processes.

I LOVE THESE WORKOUTS!!!!!

I can do it on my own time and pace, and I am seeing great results. Tom is extremely helpful and quick to respond on Facebook to any questions people from this amazing VIGORESS group have.

MORE TESTIMONIALS

NATHAN CHARLAN

For years I told myself, “This will be the year I’ll get in shape.” But with family, work/business, church, friends, house repairs and bills, I allowed the busyness of life to get in the way of taking responsibility for my health. Honestly, the health/fitness/nutrition world just felt too complex, too daunting for me to get started.

Fortunately, in November 2017, I learned about the VIGOR program—a training schedule, nutrition and supplement plan all laid out in an easy to follow way. It took all the guesswork away and gave me no more excuses for procrastination. I came into VIGOR training without any real experience to weight training. The results in percent body fat loss, skeletal muscle gain, and overall weight loss have been life changing.

The best testimonial I have for the VIGOR program comes from the reaction of my co-workers who saw my physical transformation from the fitness program and said, “Dude, what are you doing, because you are huge and I want to do exactly what you’re doing!”

DANIEL SHARP

Since starting VIGOR nearly 12 months ago I have dropped my body fat considerably and dropped 17 pounds. I don’t focus on weight loss really the benefits of the program go much deeper than that.

The design of the program really gives me to ability to use a world class program while paying far less than personal training fees. I have videos to check up on and train anywhere in the world.

I travel a lot for work and have been back to Australia twice in the last year and have not missed a training session. Not to mention the numerous trips around the U.S. The quality of the program has been the biggest seller though with videos to assist in improving technique and a focus on technique rather than just trying to lift big weights.

I train on my own most of the time and don’t need to think up my own program but have the resources to train and bring the best of myself forward. I am at the fittest I have been in over 20 years and get the benefit of training like an athlete again. The benefits go further than physical, my mental state is so much better and my confidence has lifted as well.

This program provides everything you need to bring out the best you have in all areas of your life, the other participants push you and assist you to keep going and have you want to be involved.

RYAN GENTRY

For many years I have struggled with weight, and my mindset around health and fitness. VIGOR has helped change that. Down 64 pounds and counting this year with the help and guidance of this program!

The VIGOR community provides much needed accountability, motivation, and encouragement to keep me focused and on track to achieve my goals. The Facebook page is great as it allows you to connect with others, ask questions, and get tips and feedback from Tom as well as others that are on the journey to better health with you.

The workouts within VIGOR Training are very well planned, efficient, and super effective. Tom takes all planning and guesswork out of the equation, and has provided a tool that easily tracks my daily progress. The program is easy to follow. All I have to do is show up and put in the work that is laid out for me on gym day. The app tracks my progress and I can see in real time improvements to my strength.

Tom Nikkola and VIGOR Training have been instrumental in my successful weight reduction this year. Tom is a wealth of experience and knowledge and is consistently active in the group posting relevant information and articles related to health, supplements, nutrition, sleep, hormones, and many other fitness related topics.

TOD TRACY

When I started with the VIGOR Training I had no experience with weight training. To be honest, it was a pretty intimidating. The Vigor program provided me with structure, direction and confidence. It was amazing to me how well thought out and put together this program is. I was able to walk into the Gym, know exactly what machine to workout on, how many reps to do, how many I did last time and the amount of weight for each rep.

I started this VIGOR Training with a three-year history of a hurting back and in two weeks my back did not hurt anymore. What a blessing… I have a 25 year shoulder injury that is healing and getting stronger every day. Words cannot express my gratitude for this program.

BRANDON WALLACE

VIGOR Training is such an important part in reaching my fitness goals. Tom provides clear, easy-to-follow workouts that challenge you to get a full-body workout.

Not only have I found a great weight training program, but the guys in the VIGOR community have helped me reach some big milestones. In the month of August 2018, a group of VIGOR members took on Tom’s 28 Day Challenge; which had a specific exercise plan (weight training and walking), nutrition plan, and supplement plan. With following these specific guidelines, at the end of the 28 days I had lost 17.6 lbs., 6.8% body fat, and 4 inches off my waist!

I am so pleased with these results that VIGOR Training has now become a regular part of my health and wellness journey.
