I just got back from the Advocare ADVONATION Conference in Atlanta. My mind is still spinning!!! The entire day was just awesome: we had world-class training that I can apply to all areas of my life, we heard from people who have taken claim of their life when they felt hopeless and now are living extraordinary lives with new found freedom. In addition we got to hear a little “behind the scenes” from the Fittest Man on Earth – 4x CrossFit Champ and non-paid Advocare Endorser RICH FRONING!!! He could endorse any supplement company but he chooses Advocare. When asked why he uses it, he simply said, “It Works!”
I was really, really humbled and crazy excited to hear from

As a research physiologist and biochemist he was the head of the Exercise Biochemistry Laboratory within Exercise Physiology Division.Dr. Kraemer is currently a member and Fellow in the American College of Sports Medicine and has served as a member of the ACSM’s Board of Trustees and Administrative Council. He is a past president of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Dr. Kraemer was among the first group of members inducted as Fellows in the NSCA in 2007. Dr. Kraemer is also a Fellow in the International Society of Sports Nutrition and the American College of Nutrition. He is also a member of the American Physiological Society and the Endocrine Society.
Dr. Kraemer serves on numerous scientific journal editorial boards and is the current Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, an Editor for the European Journal of Applied Physiology and an Associate Editor for Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise and is on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Applied Physiology.
