The Official Ray Burton Website

The #2 Source for Functional Fitness

Raymond Burton bodyweight training lungesHi, I’m Ray Burton, creator of Commando Cardio and the Fat To Fit Program.

I’m 45 now and wanted to create a helpful fitness site for guys 40,50,60,70 and beyond. I’m here for the long haul and I realize a lot of us feel beat up, fat and are moving like crap.

So rule #1 – Unless you want to be a bodybuilder, don’t train like one. If you want to be an athlete… TRAIN THAT WAY and get faster, leaner and stronger.

If you train like an athlete – the world is a game. And that’s why all the fitness info on this website is about muscle, mobility and strength for men over 40. So we can get more mobile, faster, leaner and stronger.

“I Lost 60 Pounds And Am Still Going Strong!”

Weight loss client My metabolism “flipped” and I could feel it happen.

I immediately started losing weight fast, for me it was steady at 2lbs per week and now I have lost over 60 pounds and am still going strong. I started at 254 pounds and now am down to 194 pounds and can lift more in my workouts, go longer and feel great!

You just have to try it.”

I went from 18% body fat to 11%

david fafardI approached Ray and like many times before he pushed and challenged me to keep MOTIVATED and spent additional time with me in order to adapt my training to compensate for my injury. The concern and support that Ray showed allowed me to re-charge and I NEVER GAVE UP and made the suggested changes and adaptations to my program. The results are that I went from 18% body fat to 11%. As well I increased my lean muscle mass and improved my cardio conditioning. Thanks for all of your support Ray and I am now ready for a new challenge.

Simon KellyA serious car accident left me unable to work for nine months. After being unable to do much for several months my body was starting to slip and I wasn’t healthy. Since training with Ray I have made dramatic improvements in several areas of my health. After my latest checkup I am no longer borderline type 2 diabetic. My blood sugar levels are down from 6.3 to 5.7. My total cholesterol is down from 4.16 to 3.24 and my resting heart rate is now 61 from 73. So thanks for everything Ray. My pants fit better after losing 21 pounds and now have the energy to do the things I enjoy.

warren coles I have been training with personal trainer Ray Burton for several months now. Using Ray’s advice and training principles, I have been capable of losing 29 pounds of body fat while adding 12 pounds of lean body mass. Thank-you for everything Ray

Davs resultsFirst of all let me say I had my doubts that Ray would be able to live up to all the hype that was surrounding his training. After all I was starting his program at 323 lbs. But after doing it for the first month, I couldn’t believe the butt kicking I got. In that one month alone I dropped 30 lbs of 100% fat and gained some mean lean solid muscle mass and weighed in at 295 lbs!!! I could actually see some definition in my body over all. Because of his training and giving me the butting kicking I so desperately needed, I am weighing in at 230 lbs this year!

What I don’t understand is how after buying a gym membership and getting a personal trainer for 3 months at 4 times a week (costing 65$ a session) the only weight I lost seemed to be in my wallet. Yet with Ray, I lost 30 pounds!

Now I know why none of my clothes really fit anymore.

So if your not sure if this program is right for you….well it will be if you follow Ray’s advice and bring the motivation and desire, it will work.
