Author Of the Body Re-Engineering Program

Hugo’s knowledge of the human physiology and anatomy (something that he was exposed to from an early age due to the fact that his grandfather was a Medical Doctor), combined with his analytical skills that he developed in his engineering profession enable him to produce extremely efficient programs that anyone can fit into their schedule. The fact that he was overweight and then extremely underweight (after the anorexic period) enables him to identify with all groups of people that have weight problems. In addition, holding for many years a steady hectic engineering job in addition to his successful online and personal training business enables him to offer practical advice that people who live a hectic lifestyle can follow. Hugo has combined all that knowledge and experience and self published his body transformation program Body Re-Engineering

Best Selling Fitness Author

In 2001 he commercially published through Hatherleigh Press two books targeted towards the weight loss community called The Body Sculpting Bible for Men and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women (featuring the 14 Day Body Sculpting Program).

Hugo wrote these books in conjunction with James Villepigue, an authority in exercise form and the connection between the mind and the muscle. In these books, both authors apply the periodization principles used by pro athletes to workouts geared for people whose main goal is to lose weight and firm up. Both books soon became best sellers and now there are over 8 book extensions on that franchise with the latest re-release of the originals in December 2006 that even includes an exercise and nutrition DVD. Bodybuilding Guide
