Hello my name is Richard Stadnyk and in 2001 I founded Body Concepts Personal Training, which began with just one personal training client and has grown into a company that serves a number of personal training sessions daily; successfully fulfilling its mission on a consistent basis. I take pride in the fact that I have improved the lives of individuals of all ages, shapes, and sizes through our commitment to fitness and nutrition. There is not one un-wanted fat or cellulite cell that has stood up to the challenge from Body Concepts Personal Training and its dedicated clients! Body Concepts is not just my companys name, it is also my philosophy. The first step is commitment. Committing to yourself to enrich your life through looking after your body, mind and spirit. There will always be excuses not to start “I do not have enough time” being the most prevalent. But, if you listen to that little voice in your head (which is easy to do), then it wins and you lose.
Body Concepts Personal Fitness is the ONLY fitness company in the Toronto area to offer weight loss and fitness programs that guarantee results! No other company stands behind their service or programs like we do. We are so sure we can help you that we are willing to do the unthinkable – guarantee that you will see the results you want or we will refund your money!
I challenge you to find a gym, exercise studio, fitness center, or personal trainer that will offer such a strong guarantee. Our guarantee is one of the things that sets us apart from all other fitness options.
I will work together and I will be there with you every step of the way on this amazing journey in achieving your Healthier and Stronger Body. I will provide the motivation, knowledge and guidance, all I need from you is the commitment and desire to better yourself.

The best way I can explain ‘fat loss loopholes’ to you is that you have the ability to “short circuit” fat loss, but first you have to understand a few tricks — or ways of using your body’s natural processes — to your advantage.

A Week’s Worth of Delicious Sweet Potato Beef Stew in 60 Minutes [Slow Cooker Recipe]
Food and Drink: Crockpot Recipes • Published: October 30, 2013
A few weeks ago I got myself a new tool. I’m sadly attracted to shiny new tools. But this is one that I’ve been eying for quite some time. And when I saw it sitting on the store shelf by itself with its price tag slashed three times, I knew it was time to take action. I swooped in, dropped some bills, and was told that I just grabbed the last unit in the store. Meant to be. I stuffed it in my car, drove back carefully to my apartment like I was bringing home a new born, and unpacked it with such a love and care to make sure it stayed in supreme condition. This is how I continue to treat my brand spankin’ new slow cooker – the original Crock Pot. But what’s the big deal right? A tool is just that – a tool. Nobody cares about tools. You don’t care about tools. You care about what one can do with those tools.
