The challenge of changing your body and your life is, well, challenging! So why further complicate things by trying to write your own program along the way? You've let us know time and time again that you like having a plan to guide you, so you can focus on simply showing up, doing the work, eating the meals, slamming the shakes, and resting knowing you've done your best.

So, which of our All Access programs did you see the greatest results from this year? The answer may surprise longtime users of the site…

Winner: Shortcut to Size

Shortcut to Size

Another of our most-revered programs, fitness powerhouse and exercise physiologist Dr. Jim Stoppani's Shortcut to Size is an in-depth, muscle-building experience backed by the kind of scientific research and data we've come to expect from him.

Shortcut to Size is a six-week, step-by-step program that is one of the quickest and most effective ways to build muscle through food, exercise, and supplementation. You'll learn what to eat to build muscle, how to lift to maximize size and strength, and what supplements are best for your goals.

This program is a true rite of passage in the muscle-building world. What are you waiting for?


FYR: Hannah Eden's 30-Day Fitness Plan


Hannah Eden hears the same thing all the time: "I want to make a change, but I have no idea how to get there." Well, her program FYR is a hell of a place to start.

In this 30-day program, Eden not only shows you how to transform your body, she keeps pace with you every step of the way.

As she mercilessly pushes you through muscle-building, fat burning, high-intensity workouts, Eden asks only one favor in return: Dig deep to discover what you're truly capable of. She calls it FYR—Find Your Reason.

This program is not about working out for hours giving only 30 percent. It's about working hard for 30-minutes a day—every day—and giving it everything. It will challenge you, it will test you, and, as Eden puts it, it will probably make you angry. But will it kill you? Far from it. And we've heard thousands of times that you love every minute along the way.

Eden's unparalleled energy and no-bullshit attitude is exactly why FYR tops the list of this year's best All Access programs. FYR will make you stronger, both physically and mentally, and if Eden's energy seems a little scary, good—that's exactly what makes this program, and you, work.



Jamie Eason's perennial fitness program, LiveFit, is less brash and in-your-face than FYR, but the results of this fan-favorite are no less remarkable. As one of's first comprehensive video-based fitness programs, LiveFit lives up to its reputation and continues to earn new fans every day.

LiveFit is written by a woman for women, but it is popular across all demographics. Men, women, diehard lifters, and newbies alike all follow Eason to improve overall fitness, learn how to prep meals and eat healthy, and gain healthy habits to live fit every day.



Rounding out the best-programs list is our comprehensive 12-week program, Transformed. Over the course of this three-month fitness program, you'll not only transform the way you eat and lift, but the way you think about health and fitness.

A full team of experienced fitness models and coaches share their transformation stories along the way, so you can learn how to transform your body from people who have done it themselves and inspired thousands of others to do the same.

The program is one of our most approachable but effective full-body plans, giving you a science-backed, just-intense-enough stimulus with strength training, cardio, and all the nutritional guidance you could ever need. Transformed is about more than just losing weight or getting in shape—it's about transforming you.
