Squats with 21-15-9 rep schemes at 95% intensity will get you sore…
Thrusters and toes-to-bar until you puke will get you tired…
Burpees and box jumps will make you sweat…
Sure, random exercises in a WOD while chasing your fastest time will make you FEEL like you got a good workout…
…But the pros know that doesn’t mean results are on the horizon.
In fact, this balls-to-the-wall training mentality often leads to injury and burnout.
Even advanced trainees fall into the trap… They believe all they need to do to keep making progress is to train “harder.”
Sadly, this isn’t true.
Simply doing things hard, fast, or more does NOT mean you’re going to get the training effect that you’re hoping for.
If you want to look, feel, and perform your best?
And you want to be able to sustain it into your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond without spending hours a day in the gym?
Pay close attention…
High Intensity Fitness inferior training is a watered-down version of the REAL “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity” training method.
Now, don’t get me wrong, the concept behind High Intensity Fitness is solid…
Combining the best of strength training & conditioning into one program.
And I’ll let you in on a deep dark secret – I gave High Intensity Fitness a shot myself when I was introduced to it by a buddy of mine.
What attracted me to it is the competitiveness. Now, I was a college athlete so I’ll admit that part got my juices flowing. And it definitely can be fun.
However, based on my experience and education in exercise science, I immediately knew that this simply was NOT the best of both worlds, it certainly wasn’t the best strength training out there for sure. I’ll prove this in a minute.
So, I realized that all these High Intensity Fitness Athletes who had a cult-like following and allegiance to this thing were priming themselves for less than stellar long-term results, burnout, and even serious injury. It actually led me to the best decision of my life – more on that later.
For now, it’s important that you know and understand the most common programming mistakes you’ll find in almost every training program out there (but especially if you like High Intensity Fitness type training)… so you avoid them at all costs.
Randomized programming may work for a while, but it will NOT work forever.
In fact, I call this “Prescribed Chaos.” Because that’s exactly what it is.
Throw out random exercises and tell you to push as hard and fast as you can…
Then “hope” your body adapts.
Sorry, but HOPE is not an effective training strategy.
And I’m not just picking on High Intensity Fitness here.
The problem is with social media, I see people all the time just randomly picking out a workout of the day from whatever fitness “influencer” they happen to be following.
One of the most famous names in Strength and Conditioning, Yuri Verkoshanski, once said “any idiot can make any idiot tired.”
The bottom line: random workouts are a recipe for disaster.
Truth: You do NOT need randomized workouts — you need a strategically-varied concurrent training program
You should train strength, power, mobility, stability, conditioning, and skills SIMULTANEOUSLY.
A well-structured plan that ensures you properly blend movement patterns, intensity, and all physical characteristics.
Now, I get it…the RANDOMIZED part of High Intensity Fitness programs is what keeps it interesting, it’s what keeps it FUN, right?
Well, the “strategically-varied” part of what I just mentioned above keeps the fun, interesting, never gets boring part of High Intensity Fitness that you love, but with all of these benefits added to it:
You get the best of both worlds when you replace randomized workouts with strategically-varied concurrent training.
The problem is most coaches don’t have the slightest idea of how to program this properly. So, even if you have a personal trainer who you think is providing a strategic approach, believe me, it’s more of the same randomized crap.
Ever notice how you wake up feeling like gold some days?
But other days…
You wake up feeling like you got hit by a truck…
(even if your training wasn’t especially brutal the day before?)
That’s because we have all sorts of stressors in our lives that contribute to our recovery.
Training, nutrition, and sleep are only the beginning.
There are stressors in our environment, water, food, and more.
So, when you try to do way too much in training—you set yourself up to fail.
Truth: You do NOT need to train more — you need to train optimally.
In life, we experience natural ebbs and flows.
No-one (let me repeat, no one!) linearly progresses through life on a straight-line upward slope. That’s not how physiology and biology work.
So, don’t you think training optimally through these peaks and valleys by giving your body the tools to self-regulate makes way more sense than following some randomly planned “peaking cycle”?
And wouldn’t it make sense that your training is adaptable to these natural waves to help you get the best results?
The answer is yes. The problem is, traditional High Intensity Fitness, and nearly every training program you’ve probably tried doesn’t work like this.
The game isn’t about training maximally, it’s about training optimally.
And…WHAT you do with your training time is very important.
Training harder and harder, week after week isn’t the fix.
If it was, everyone would be strong as an Ox and jacked. Which isn’t the case.
In fact, most programs actually train your body to be MORE susceptible to injury.
Sounds crazy, but it’s true. And unless you make a change, you’re leaving results and your body to chance.
One of my greatest mentors and strength coaches always says:
“It’s not the one gust of wind that breaks the branch on the tree — it’s the years of wind. Eventually, there is a breaking point.”
He couldn’t be more right.
Sustainability is one of the biggest missing pieces I see in training programs.
Truth: You do NOT have to feel broken or rundown — you need peak sustainability
Coaches are always talking about achieving a maximal result…whether that’s a weight on the bar, a time in a WOD, a physique on stage, a number on the scale, etc.
I rarely see these MAXIMAL results sustained for any period of time. Which is crazy, because your ABSOLUTE best isn’t sustainable.
Instead, you should be chasing after peak sustainability…
The best result you can sustain over a longer period of time.
Stress Compounding happens when training, life, and other work-stressors build up in your body and stunt significant progress and growth.
This can lead to hormone problems, sleep issues, physical injuries–and of course, physique downfalls that we already talked about.
Don’t be shocked if you never heard of Stress Compounding before.
This isn’t something that’s talked about in the High Intensity Fitness or training community but the problems it causes are a serious concern…
…That’s why I have so many High Intensity Fitness Athletes, gym owners and trainers come to me for help. Many of them don’t even know about stress compounding as a concept let alone how to structure a training program that prevents it.
So not only is this programming forcing you to settle for a subpar physique long-term…
But it’s breaking your body down, burning you out, and leaving you feeling like a beat-up ragdoll.
Unfortunately, you may have already experienced this.
Training hard, eating right, and busting your ass for weeks (even months)…
Only to end up stuck at home with lower back pain, crippling knee pain, tennis elbow, achilles tendonitis or ruptures, rotator cuff tendonitis, adrenal fatigue, or WORSE.
Some even suffer the potentially deadly condition of rhabdomyolysis— where your skeletal muscle tissue dies, releasing substances into the blood that cause kidney failure.
For “hardcore” High Intensity Fitness Athletes, this is often joked about.
I could not sit by and watch any more people drink the “High Intensity Fitness Kool-Aid” and wear it as a badge of honor when it was leaving so many broken.
That’s when I knew it was my purpose to come up with the best combination of strength and conditioning in one program without all the negatives of High Intensity Fitness.
My mission was to:
And later…I’ll tell you how my gym (and the results that I got for my clients) revolutionized the industry to where I had other gym owners coming to me for my expertise.
Again, if you’re looking for a High Intensity Fitness program or think this is a “High Intensity Fitness program on steroids” stop reading.
But, if you want something that gives you all the positives of High Intensity Fitness type training without all the negatives, read on…
The base of CXC comes from a particular strength and conditioning system called the “Conjugate Method.”
This system can be traced back to Soviet Olympic Gold Medalists.
Which was later perfected in a setting that’s produced more world-record-holding powerlifters than any other gym in the world…
Then adopted by me to integrate the (much needed) conditioning and physique development qualities to make this the PERFECT training method for type A people that typically gravitate toward High Intensity Fitness.
To date, it’s already helped over 30,000 worldwide.
I’m hoping you’re next.
But I should warn you…
What I’m about to share will go against everything you’ve been told about how you need to train to get leaner, stronger, and faster.
First, let me introduce myself…
Today, I’m a highly sought-after strength and conditioning expert.
Before that, I was a collegiate football player and started coaching athletes in the off-season at a Strength & Conditioning facility that I trained at. It was during an internship at that same facility where I would gain the foundation of my strength & conditioning education.
I studied Exercise Physiology and earned a Masters of Science Degree
Then, I became a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Westside Barbell Special Strengths Coach (to name a few of my credentials)
As I explained, before I entered the military in 2006, I was introduced to High Intensity Fitness by a buddy of mine. I was definitely attracted to the competitive nature of it.
But, I quickly realized the programming most High Intensity Fitness Athletes were doing was all wrong for the reasons I’ve already told you about.
After getting out of the military in 2011, my wife and I opened our own gym with the goal of creating programming that kept the competitiveness and fun of a High Intensity Fitness type program but also married the absolute best of strength training and conditioning.
And it worked! Our gym members were loving it, seeing their best results ever and without any burnout or the common injuries that other programs are plagued with.
But, what happened next really shocked me…
My method spread like wildfire throughout the High Intensity Fitness and personal training community and other gym owners came to me for my programming methods.
Experts who make a living helping others get back into shape hired me so they can use the CXC method to get their clients strong, fit, and healthy–safely and more efficiently.
I’ve been using CXC to program for other gyms for over 8 years and they love it.
“Jason’s programming is excellent. It is very well rounded and most importantly, produces results!” I love all the accessory work he programs that most of us tend to forget about. As a box owner, Box Programming allows us to put more time into other business-related items without having to worry about programming solid workouts.” -Jamie Reisinger
Instead of following workouts that leave their members hurt, exhausted, and unimpressed with the results–and eventually leave…
I take care of all their programming for their group training so their members stay healthy, happy, and more importantly–get amazing results.
Members don’t quit and leave their High Intensity Fitness gym because they’re hurt.
And now, when they stare in the mirror, they look and feel better than they did when they were 20+ years younger.
Members don’t quit and leave their High Intensity Fitness gym because they’re hurt.
And now, when they stare in the mirror, they look and feel better than they did when they were 20+ years younger.
Over the years, my unique CXC training method has helped over 30,000 shatter PR’s, slash times off their WOD’s, pack on slabs of lean muscle, and get a lean physique… without training multiple times per day.
That’s why I’m so excited you’re here. Because I’m going to reveal a special opportunity to use the same training system…
… And take your health, fitness, and performance to the next level in only a fraction of the time.
So, here’s how I developed CXC…
More recently, the Conjugate system was popularized by world-famous strength coach Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell. Maybe you’ve heard of it before?
Westside Barbell is widely known as The Strongest Gym In The World. This gym has more world record-holding powerlifters than ANY gym in the world. Heck, there’s even a documentary called “Westside VS The World” on Netflix.
I’m one of the few select coaches in the world certified by Louie and Westside Barbell in their unique training methods…
So I know the system better than most. That’s how I knew…
So, it made sense to use Conjugate as the base for the strength training portion of the program.
Then, I gathered all of my previous training knowledge and experience…
Years of sport-specific training, my military background, my master’s degree in exercise physiology, my unique experience with the Conjugate system.
And optimized this until I had what I believe is the best strength training available anywhere in the world.
Now, the only thing that was missing to still compete in High Intensity Fitness style WOD’s, was the conditioning element.
So, here’s how I incorporated the world-class conditioning needed to still look and perform at my peak…
I took tried-and-true methods for Energy Systems Development and strategically placed them into our training plan to maximize results and recovery.
I prioritized developing the aerobic system– to facilitate recovery, heart-health, and the body’s ability to replenish ATP aerobically.
I then varied our conditioning work LESS to allow for improvement in movement quality, energy control/pacing, and work capacity.
I added in work-to-rest style conditioning pieces weekly. This allows the body to get used to being consistent with work capacity, instead of the standard High Intensity Fitness WODs that train you to get used to getting tired (not to mention drop-offs in work capacity).
Lastly, I used specific conditioning methods that are NOT dependent on one having a massive skill-base (hint: we don’t use the Olympic Lifts and Gymnastics in our conditioning pieces) and are far more effective for developing general physical preparedness (GPP) than standard High Intensity Fitness WODs.
And…this unique programming methodology of Conjugate and Conditioning combined, I call…
If any of the above describes you, please stop reading…
Aren’t 100% certain what you’re doing right now is the most optimal way to reach your goals…
… Or every training program (or coach) you’ve tried has left you feeling beat up, burned out, or let down.
… Or you’re not as conditioned, lean, strong, or resilient as you wish—especially after all the effort you put in your training or diet.
… Or what you’re doing isn’t working like it used to—and you’re concerned things might keep going the wrong way.
… Or you just realize that time is a valuable resource you can no longer waste with things that don’t give you the biggest bang for your buck.
If that’s you? Congrats!
Almost every training program you’ll ever see promises ONE or TWO results.
Maybe it’s strength and conditioning… or just hypertrophy… or just improved conditioning.
With this superior CXC Method… you get increased strength, better conditioning, improved body composition, improved recovery, and MORE!
My most successful clients — the ones that rapidly transform their physique, smash PR’s, and squash their previous WOD times — started working with me AFTER being let down from 5, 7, even 10 other programs.
They buy a program from one of the big-name High Intensity Fitness athletes.
It looks cool. It’s loaded with exercises. Plenty of variety, fun tools, different intensities. And they all look like really challenging workouts.
They block off training time in their schedule for the next few weeks. Maybe even months. And the rush of adrenaline sets in…
They go to sleep excited. Ready to wake up and get after it. And they do.
The first few workouts were fun. Killer even. Left them exhausted… feeling like they “got a really good workout.”
Days later, their body begs them for a break.
Tight, achy hips that make it difficult to get up and down off the floor.
Cranky lower back that screams every time they bend over to pick something up.
Inflamed elbow and shoulders that make reaching for a gallon of water feel like a bucket of concrete.
Wrists that feel like they’re cracking. Calves as stiff as rocks. A neck as mobile as the Tin Man. And worse.
Their body feels like it’s one rep away from CRACKING.
It can happen anytime. A few days. A few weeks. Maybe a few months if they’re super conditioned and lucky.
Soon they start to realize… What’s the point?
The smart ones turn to CXC.
With results like that, can you blame them?
Now You Can Use The Same Method Previously Reserved For Gym Owners And Our Private Clients
If you want to look, feel, and perform your best… and be able to sustain it into your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond… without spending hours a day in the gym?

If you were a gym owner who wanted the CXC Method installed for your members, it would cost over $750.
If you hired me for private training, it would cost $200 EACH SESSION!
But, it won’t cost you anywhere near that today. The entire program with everything that is listed above included…
“I love that the programming easily fit in the 1 hour training window I have every day. I’m also not 100% consistent due to “dad duties” and because the program is not linear as other traditional programs are, I can step in and out without missing out on making progress. At 42 I’ve been able to build my strength…this program has been a game changer for how my body feels.”
“The best program you can invest in!! I was doing my own workouts and following a lot of what is seen on social media. Going to cardio bootcamp classes thinking it was the only way to get “fit”. I started CXC two
