Welcome to Art McDermott’s…

The #1 weight loss, nutrition, and mindset coaching program for people over age 45 seeking a blueprint to success for decades to come.

  • tHave you tried—and failed—at diets and exercise programs in the past?
  • tAre you frustrated by slow, steady weight gain that seems resistant to anything you try?
  • tAre you looking for a quick and permanent solution for weight loss?

If so, you’re in the right place…

This is the home of the Metabolic Spark Program©

But the thing is, the Metabolic Spark Program© is so much more than weight loss…

Not only will you lose the weight, but you’ll also “reprogram” your mind and body to keep that weight off for a lifetime!

This approach doesn’t require crazy workouts…

There’s minimal time commitment…

And you won’t have to give up the foods you love…

No other program addresses the unique needs of folks over age 45 like the Metabolic Spark Program©

And it’s brought to you by the trusted experts at the Successful Aging Academy.

What makes the Metabolic Spark Program© so unique?

1. Step No.1 is identifying the real reason you can’t lose weight.

The old “calories in, calories out” mantra is a myth.

If it were that easy, everyone would walk around with six-pack abs and never gain a pound of fat.

It simply doesn’t work that way.

Your hormones are unique…

Your lifestyle is unique…

What works for a twenty-something doesn’t work for you.

Inside the Metabolic Spark Program© we’ll pinpoint your obstacles to success and create a blueprint that fits your lifestyle and addresses the root cause of your weight gain.

2. You need a program backed by science, not celebrities.

TV personalities?

Movie stars?

Celebrities get paid to say that their diet is the best.

They know nothing about weight loss in the real world.

Our approach is backed by thousands of peer-reviewed studies and our clients have a fully documented fat loss of well over 5,000 pounds!

3. NO! A slowing metabolism is NOT the issue here!

You have more control over your health than you think and getting older doesn’t have to mean a steady downhill slide.

That’s just another long-standing myth…

The science shows that weight loss is possible at any age

Even if you’ve been sedentary for years…

Even if you constantly feel sluggish and tired…

And even if it feels like your body has betrayed you with that slow, steady weight gain.

4.You don’t have to turn your life upside down to get back the body you deserve.

Most people are intimidated about starting a weight loss program because they don’t want to live a life of deprivation and spend countless hours plodding along on a treadmill.

That approach never works!

You need an effective program that fits effortlessly into your life without massive disruption. Right?

The Metabolic Spark Program© does just that.

It was designed from the ground up by elite nutritional experts and trainers.

This program has been refined over years to provide fast, safe fat loss as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • RIf you're over 45...
  • RYou're not looking to get 'ripped'...
  • RYou don't have illusions of being a fitness model...
  • RAnd it's unlikely you're not training for a bodybuilding competition...
  • RIt is NOT your mission in life to see how shredded I can get my abs… like some kid on Instagram

Like most of us, you simply want to…

  • feel better...
  • move better, with fewer aches and pains...

Stepping on the scale and seeing the numbers drop lower and lower…

Breaking out in a big grin when your clothes start to fit the way they’re supposed to and loving the reflection you see in the mirror…

“The success I have achieved with Successful Aging Academy (SSA) has been tremendous. I haven’t really thought about health and nutrition until recently, as conditions have changed. I’m now at my goal weight having lost 25 pounds in just a couple of months!”

Ronald J. Mastrocola

“Art McDermott has accomplished something via The Successful Aging Academy that everyone, but especially “boomers” like myself, should utilize in his or her life.

He has put together a fantastic program that integrates exercise, nutrition and a lifestyle approach with an end goal of overall wellness that will be life changing, if adopted and integrated into a daily routine!”

Ronald J. Mastrocola

A 58 year old banking executive, lost 28 pounds when we identified the single pattern that was sabotaging him almost daily.

David C

An executive with a large real estate management group (his testimonial appears below) hit his goal weight within two and half months of starting our program, after years of slow steady weight gain.

Ron M

“As the scales started to show a positive response, and then when the mirror started to reflect those changes, I found renewed energy, belief, and incentive.

Over the past 5 weeks, I have dropped almost two full pant sizes and 20 pounds. I’m not surprised about the weight loss, although, I am a bit astounded by the physical changes…

I recommend this program to everyone. If you want to get stronger, if you want to be better in sports, if you just want to lose some weight, join in.”

Ed Bassett

“I was 46 and wanted to feel and look better. I was eating all wrong and not working out in a beneficial way. Art completely changed the way I ate and worked out.

Today, I feel great and look fit. It feels awesome when people are surprised that I am 52.”

Linda Bara

A 50 year old customer service specialist, easily dropped 15 pounds in just two short months by tweaking and shortening her workouts using this proven method.

Jody M

“I have tried 5 different, very popular diet programs. They were all very expensive and didn’t work…And now I do and that’s what’s working for me. No diet has ever made me feel this good!! Thanks,”

Maria P.

“It has been an interesting journey I have begun with Art and the Successful Aging Academy group….I am feeling more transformed than simply thinner. Sure, my pants fit better now, and that’s certainly a big win for me … but that’s not the real value here!

Through his advanced consultative approach Art has helped me identify and remove many bad habits that I spent almost half a lifetime developing, and replace them with healthy ones.”

Rick Cavallero

“SAA has been a life changer for me. At my age I have finally found the support system, exercise plan and nutrition plan that works! I’m now just 4 pounds away from goal weight and should hit that within a couple more weeks”

Nancy Mastrocola

“A TV network sports show producer, lost 34 pounds and increased his muscle mass simply by focusing on a few critical food choices that were dominating his incredibly tight schedule.
