I watch a lot of exercise videos and can tell who’s trying to teach and who’s trying to reach (into your pockets). YouTube is OVERLOADED with these annoying Mike Chang commercials; the types of commercials that are designed to get you to buy a certain product.
While Mike Chang is in shape, his sole purpose…let me say that again…his sole purpose with this pre-workout drink is to get people to buy his product.
He recently came out with a short, catchy video where he says that he cheated. This is a marketing scheme where he comes to you fully humble and open about his past. Then, when you’ve forgiven him (because we all make mistakes) he comes at you with this “new product” that’s supposed to be a “shortcut to health and fitness.”
He also mentions how this new information is going to get a lot of hateful comments on his channel. The sad, deceptive part is that he never tells you what the product is. Why? Because it’s a really, well-done marketing scheme designed to get you hooked and tell you that you need this product to get his results.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to health and fitness.
I went to his cheated site and within the first minute of the video, he says he’s a trainer and “not a marketer.”
As a professional web developer, I know the difference between a website looking to make quick $$$ and others that actually provide quality information. I am 100% certain that this site is intended to get people to buy a product.
For someone who is looking for good, common sense information regarding health and fitness, I will not be spending my money on this guy’s products. There are so many other guys online that actually use the products they’re selling and do the workouts they are teaching. I will link to the guys that are actually in shape; the guys that can teach others how to do pull ups, pushups, squats, etc, while not trying to market to their followers. Chris Krueger, Frank Medrano, and Lazar Angelov are guys that actually work out, that actually have a solid diet plan, and put up YouTube videos that are quality.

Do you think Mike Chang’s system is a scam? Do you think it works? Let me know in a comment below:
