In The Gym?

Today we are going to have a little fun!

Lately I have been asked several times, “where should I start?” Or, “What should I start with?”  Both questions are in reference to losing weight, getting healthy, or building lean muscle.  Every time I get this question, I respond with, “what type of person are you, that helps me determine the right path for you.”


By asking this question, I gain an understanding of commitment vs. time management vs. will power etc.  We ALL have a different make and model which leads into every other aspect of our lives.  Including leading a healthy and fit lifestyle.

Take 5 minutes and give yourself a little test to see what type of person you are.

The 5-Minute Personality Test


Below are ten horizontal lines with four words on each line, one in each column. In each line, put

the number “4” next to the word that best describes you in that line; a “3” next to the word that

describes you next best; a “2” to the next best word, and a “1” by the word that least describes


For example: One choice for the first line of words would be as follows:

3 Likes Authority   4 Enthusiastic   2 Sensitive Feelings   1 Likes Instructions


L                                        O                             G                                      B


  1. ____ Likes Authority ____ Enthusiastic ____ Sensitive Feelings ____ Likes Instructions


  1. ____ Takes Charge ____ Takes Risks ____ Loyal ____ Accurate


  1. ____ Determined ____ Visionary ____ Calm, Even Keel ____ Consistent


  1. ____ Enterprising ____ Very Verbal ____ Enjoys Routine ____ Predictable


  1. ____ Competitive ____ Promoter ____ Dislikes Change ____ Practical


  1. ____ Problem Solver ____ Enjoys Popularity ____ Gives In To Others ____ Factual



  1. ____ Productive ____ Fun-Loving ____ Avoids Confrontations ____ Conscientious


  1. ____ Bold ____ Likes Variety ____ Sympathetic ____ Perfectionist


  1. ____ Decision Maker ____ Spontaneous ____ Nurturing ____ Detail-Oriented


  1. ____ Persistent ____ Inspirational ____ Peacemaker ____ Analytical



____ TOTAL “L” ____ TOTAL “O” ____ TOTAL “G” ____ TOTAL “B”


Total up the numbers for each vertical column (L, O, G, B).


Your Results

Each letter (L, O, G, B) stands for a particular personality type.

The column with the highest score is your dominant personality type, while the column with the second highest number is your sub-dominant type.

The four personality types can be likened to animals to make them easier to understand and remember. Below are complete descriptions of each one.

L = Lions

Lions are leaders. They are usually the bosses at work.  They are decisive, bottom line folks who are observers, not watchers or listeners. Lions love to solve problems. They are usually individualists who love to seek new adventures and opportunities. Lions are very confident and self-reliant. In a group setting, if no one else instantly takes charge, the Lion will. Unfortunately, if they don’t learn how to tone down their aggressiveness, their natural dominating traits can cause problems with others.

O = Otters

Otters are excitable, fun seeking, cheerleader types who love to talk! They’re great at motivating others and need to be in an environment where they can talk and have a vote on major decisions. The otters’ outgoing nature makes them great networkers—they usually know a lot of people who know a lot of people.

Otters have a strong desire to be liked and enjoy being the center of attention. They are often very attentive to style, clothes, and flash. Otters are the life of any party; and most people really enjoy being around them.

and planning.

Your Health Personality Explained…


If you are naturally an Otter, your ways of staying fit need to be fun, adventurous, people centered and EASY to follow.  Otters won’t typically show up for a day at the gym if their workout buddy cancels.  Less likely to follow a disciplined meal plan, adding Elite Thermogenic to the mix is key for Otters.

Golden Retrievers

Goldens are perfect for a whole-30 diet plan with a few essential peptides and Aminos added to the mix.   This is why a peptide like Sermoreline (which contains super powers) is PERFECT.  This simple combination of products along with an easy meal plan will have Goldens feeling Golden in No time!


The name says it all, they come with an already existing strength that makes it easy to reach their goals.  A lion is more prone to taking everything Elite has to offer in an effort to get the best results possible.  Perfection is high up on the lion’s order of importance and it always shows in the gym.    Thriving on discipline, a low-calorie strict diet is perfect for the lions out there.

If a lion tested low in testosterone, they would be the first to go for it knowing results are right around the corner.



Don’t make a Beaver think too much, they will overthink every little detail and end up deciding to throw in the towel.  Beavers tend to analyze everything, including their daily progress.

Beavers will show up early, do the perfect workout, go home and make the perfect meal and go to bed early getting 8 hours of rest.  They are scheduled human beings and they thrive on one.  Give a Beaver a check list to follow and they consider it an honor to complete it.  Beavers love having a trainer for accountability.  The perfect starter plan for them would be any weight loss stack we offer.  Naltrexone, Hormone Therapy and CJC-1295 would be a perfect fit.  Easy to follow, easy to keep on track and GREAT results.
