Welcome, Handsome, to the

The DreamBody Challenge

a six month online physique coaching program that transforms your workouts, your diet, your life, and our community

with Branden Hayward


Hey! I’m Branden.

In June of 2018, I looked at shirtless photos of myself.  I saw joy splashed across my face.

But I felt anger when I studied my physique in the photos.

I’d been lifting weights for years, and had muscle mass.

But where was … why didn’t I have that circuit-boy, quintessential Adonis body I’d craved for so long…?!

My first instinct was to reach for a substance to fix the problem.

HGH, I thought.

Sitting across the kitchen table from a stunningly well-built man in Fire Island a few days later, I discovered the actual cost of Human Growth Hormone. Pearls were clutched.

What was I going to do? I considered rearranging my life to fund HGH.

It occurred to me there was one route I hadn’t taken yet.

4.5 months

I had worked alongside a colleague years earlier who had a stunning physique. “One day, I realized I was ready to go all in,” had been his response when I’d asked him how he’d earned his physique.

Doing it the old-fashioned way – hard work – was decidedly less sexy than HGH.  But it also was a lot cheaper and less risky.

So, I looked that former colleague up. He had moved to Denver.

Would it even work to have someone coach me who lived 2,000 miles from me? He said it would, if I was all in.

Through the use of two smartphone apps, he began overhauling my diet and guiding me through a series of progressive workout phases.

Within a few months, I felt like Cinderella, in that epically recognizable moment of profound aesthetic transformation.

But it wasn’t my temporary clothes that were transforming.

It was my permanent body.


I designed the DreamBody Challenge using the same technology my coach, Chris, uses with me.

The Challenge stewards each participant in the process of developing – and sustaining – three aesthetic goals:

  1. Broader, thicker pecs, arms, shoulders, and back.  
  2. A tighter, more carved midsection.
  3. A higher, more bubbly ass.

I’ve imbued the entire process with the empathy and compassion that we as gay men desperately need when it comes to the sometimes fraught relationship that so many of us have with our bodies,  our hearts, and our psyches.


There is a risk-free, 2-week-opt-out guarantee included in the Challenge.

You may try the technology before enrolling.

Enrollment will only be from September 18-22, 2019.
