Are You Over Age 45, Struggling to Lose Weight, and Looking to Regain Your Youthful Energy?

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.

This is how we see things…

  • 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...
  • have plenty of energy throughout the day...

Feeling just as desirable as you did 10 or 20 years ago.

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…

“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

“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.

Jim B

“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

Inside the Phoenix Protocol, you’ll have access to select meal plans based on their effectiveness…
I’ve done the research and have pinned down one or two meal plans for you to choose from that best align with your goals.

They even include grocery lists to remove the guesswork.

Remember: There’s no such thing as the one best diet!
If there was, we would all be using it…

I’ve included a special nutritional “cheat code” inside the Phoenix Protocol.

This is the secret approach professional athletes use to cut weight quickly before reporting to training camp…

Especially if they’ve had too much fun in the off-season.

It’s amazingly effective.

Only an elite group of strength coaches have access to this protocol.

Previously I’ve only shared this plan with my one-on-one clients.

All I ask is that you trust the process.

Everyone who has followed the program has succeeded!

Let’s check in on Mike!
Mike used this “cheat code” and dropped his bodyweight from a chubby 218-pound “dad bod” to a lean and ripped 186.

He’s now lifting 2-3 days per week and running 5K’s regularly. His wife is happy as can be. He’s in the best shape of his life…at age 61.

The Phoenix Protocol training programs will add that muscle, burn off that stubborn fat, and throw fuel on your lagging metabolism.
This is the difference maker…

I’ve designed training routines for thousands of people.

From professional athletes to stay-at-home parents and executives to adolescent athletes just starting out.

I’ve kept a copy of EVERY workout I’ve created…
From that massive library, I’ve selected the most effective workouts I’ve ever designed.

I’ve included programs you can use in commercial gyms, home gyms, AND bodyweight-only scenarios.
You’ll never worry about workout boredom again!

And, of course, I have your cardio dialed in as well.

I’ve perfected a progressive cardio routine designed to skyrocket your endurance levels as well as burn off belly fat.

I used this EXACT cardio program to prepare an MMA fighter for his professional debut.

He lost over 40 pounds in 9 weeks.

You read that correctly.

He walked into my gym at over 220 pounds and weighed in at 179 the day before the fight!

My friend Mike followed my lifting program and rearranged his body composition dramatically.

When he was 218, his body fat hovered around 28%.

Today he checks in at 18-19% (depending upon his running schedule).

A drop of 10% body fat!

This is my wheelhouse. Just trust the system…

Men excel when they have a singular focus.
That’s exactly why the Phoenix Protocol’s core theme is:
“What’s your ONE THING?”
For the vast majority of us, there’s ONE habit or pattern that’s causing 80% (or more) of our problems.

Together we’ll nail down this obstacle and crush it.

My psychological resources keep you completely focused on the ONE THING standing between you and that ideal version of you that you picture in your head.

In fact, for the first week of the program, I ONLY ask you to determine your ONE THING!

After Mike’s ego-crushing experience, he hit an all-time low. He admitted to me that things are home were less than ideal. He had lost his sexual confidence and felt like a failure to his wife, his family…and himself.

Today, it’s a completely different story.

His wife is ecstatic at his turnaround. She told him he’s carrying himself with a new “aura”…(her words, not mine.)

In reality, a huge percentage of Mike’s progress was the mindset shift we put in place.

What equipment do I need?

That’s why I’ve included home gym AND bodyweight-only options as well.
This is weight loss, fitness, and health on YOUR terms.
What results can I expect from the program?
Results from this program can be quite rapid. However, everyone is different. We all have different abilities and motivation levels. All of this influences the pace of your results and your overall outcome.
However, the program is designed to produce a steady improvement in body composition and a reduction in body fat.
More importantly, you’ll experience a life-changing boost in self-confidence!
Is this program safe?
The Metabolic Spark Protocol is 100% safe.
All of the training routines have been tested and proven by hundreds of clients. All of them are age-appropriate and involve no risky maneuvers or radical nutritional diets.
You are in safe hands when you use this protocol!
