In 2019, Corey embarked on his fitness journey with the goal of losing weight. However, after enlisting the help of a trainer in 2020, he shifted his focus towards body building and developing a strong, muscular physique.
Although he never competed in a bodybuilding show, Corey credits his trainer with providing him the tools and knowledge needed to take his training to the next level.
After facing some setbacks during the COVID shutdowns, Corey recommitted to his fitness routine and has been going hard ever since August 2022. Alongside a consistent workout regimen and a high protein diet, he has also utilized Evolt body composition analyses to track his progress.
The results of Corey’s hard work are remarkable, and he now boasts a stronger, more muscular physique than ever before.
How Corey Reached His Goal
What worked best for Corey to reach his prime target was ensuring he continued with bodybuilding-style training and eating up to six times per day, modifying everything as his body changed.
“In December 2022, our local smoothie/nutrition shop held a challenge to see who could lose the most fat/gain the most muscle. I joined the challenge and in January 2023 I weighed in for the first time using an Evolt 360,” Corey says.
“It gave me more insight into my body composition and the tools to track my stats. My goal today would be to be fitter, have as much energy as possible, and look the best I can at 33 years of age.”
Train Hard, Eat Hard, Work Hard
Corey’s workout schedule sees him ‘go to failure’ if possible, hitting the weights about 5 days per week and targeting every group at least once per week. With all that training, Corey needs to eat at least six times per day with snacks thrown in for good measure.
Protein is a must for Corey, where he aims for 250-300g while trying to keep between 3500-4000cal.
“You have to feed the body to build the body,” he says.
“In terms of supplements, I used whey protein, yohimbine, fat burners, L-carnitine and vitamins. I have so much more energy and focus, I feel amazing. I was fine with my body before, but to see what I’ve transitioned to has made me feel 100 times better about myself.”
What Corey Loves About The Evolt 360
Before his Evolt 360 body scan in January 2023, Corey had never experienced an intelligent body scanner before. However, he was blown away by the level of detail provided by the Evolt 360 and its ability to break down each area of his body composition.
In addition to measuring body fat percentage, the Evolt 360 provides over 40 other key measurements, including lean body mass, skeletal muscle mass, total body fat percentage, and basal metabolic rate. It also offers personalized supplement and macro recommendations through the Evolt Active app.
Corey particularly appreciates the convenience of the Evolt Active app, which stores all of his scan results and eliminates the need to keep track of paper records. The app also includes small questionnaires to help determine the best supplements to support his goals. According to Corey, the scientific validation behind the Evolt 360 makes it an essential tool for tracking body composition and transformation. The scanner provides insight into the distribution of both lean muscle and body fat, allowing for a comprehensive analysis of overall progress.
In fact, Corey’s experience with the Evolt 360 demonstrated the limitations of traditional scales, which can be misleading when it comes to tracking body composition changes. By focusing on more than just weight, the Evolt 360 allowed Corey to see that his gains in lean muscle mass far outweighed any increase in body weight.
Overall, Corey is thrilled with his Evolt 360 experience and credits the scanner and Evolt Active app with helping him achieve his fitness goals.

Corey’s Personal Advice
Corey is proof, as are his body transformation comparisons, that if you want something, and you work hard at it, you can have it!
“It’s not going to happen overnight, it’s not a sprint – it’s a marathon,” he says.
“If you want to achieve it, then you put forth everything you have to make it happen; don’t let anyone tell you any different. And absolutely don’t be intimidated by others in the gym who look like they know what they’re doing because I promise you – we are all there for the same reason…to be better than we were the day before.
“And never be afraid to ask for help. Some of the most humble people that I’ve met are gym people. We may look big and scary, but most of us are giant teddy bears on the inside.”
