With 20 years combined experience as a competitive athlete, coach, chiropractic soft-tissue therapist, and trainer, Shin formulated the scientifically proven fitness program, MAX Workouts, to help anyone burn more fat and build more muscle. This hugely popular program took the internet by storm when he made it available as a website.
Shin’s extensive educational background has long made him the “go to” source for personal trainers and coaches seeking advice. Whether it’s to lose fat, build muscle, or increase performance, Shin has been helping men and women at all different fitness levels transform their bodies and achieve their fitness goals.
“Over the past 2 decades as a former competitive athlete, coach, chiropractic soft tissue therapist, and personal trainer, I’ve uncovered the little-known secrets about losing fat and building muscle in the fastest time possible.
Back when I was a competitive athlete, I had the opportunity to spend time with some of the best names in the business, such as Charles Poliquin, world-renowned strength and conditioning coach. Charles was the first to teach me the importance of quality over quantity when it comes to strength training. His advice was way ahead of it’s time.
In 1992 while I was working on my undergraduate degree in biochemistry at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario Canada, I gained an in-depth understanding of the body’s energy systems and how their processes result in calorie burning.
I went on to further study anatomy and physiology and obtained my doctorate degree at Palmer Chiropractic West, in Northern California. It was then that I discovered the connection of the body’s nervous system to weight-loss and muscle building.
You see, most people don’t think of the nervous system as being related to weight-loss and muscle gain. The truth is, by stimulating the nervous system through proper strength training, you can burn more calories and increase your strength and muscle mass.
Through specializing in Active Release Technique (ART), a soft-tissue technique used to speed muscle recovery, I had the opportunity to help hundreds of people with varied needs. Muscle recovery is just as important as muscle stimulation—and is key to maintaining your fitness.
With my 20 years and thousands of hours of combined research, university study, and hands-on experience, I developed and refined this proven program so that anyone can get off the weight-loss plateau and build muscle without spending hours in the gym.
In all my years as a trainer, I’ve put the MAX Workouts training program to the test on men and women with all different body types, from all walks of life. I’ve helped people who are overweight, recovering from injuries, and those trying to get past the fitness plateau. From stay at home mom’s to professional athletes, I’ve seen it all.
You could say I started MAX Workouts as a solution to the lack of information available (even in well-respected magazines) about how to achieve fat-loss and how to gain muscle without spending hours in the gym. Everyone wants to get in great shape, but hardly anyone knows how to do it the most efficient and effective way—even many trainers.
Even if you have the great fortune of finding a trainer with extensive knowledge and experience (and who understands the real science behind weight-loss and muscle toning), he or she will cost you anywhere from $50-$150 per session. That’s a lot of money!
Therefore, I wanted to provide a solution for the millions of people that don’t want to spend mega-bucks and who are tired of doing the same boring workouts without getting optimum results—and provide a scientifically proven program developed to help you get in amazing shape in less time.
I’ve had an incredible success rate with my clients and wanted share my secrets with everyone. That’s when I decided to develop the most efficient and effective fat burning, muscle building workouts for all fitness levels and make it available to everyone.
MAX Workouts is an incredibly powerful program that can transform anyone’s body into becoming lean, well-defined, and strong. Beginners will find my step-by-step approach very easy to follow. And even the most advanced athletes will be challenged to perform at an elite level. No matter what your current ability is, I’ve got you covered.”
