I want to sincerely thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Pete Genot, and I am the creator of The AbTension System...the ultimate guide to
burning belly fat and getting a rock-hard mid-section without sit-ups, crunches
or long boring cardio.
Although I am a former college football player, hold both Bachelors and Masters
degrees from The University of Toledo, and have nearly 25 years of health and fitness experience, that is not why I
created The Healthy Minute.
This idea was launched in February 2010 after I was blessed with a second chance –
I survived a serious motorcycle accident. Here’s a picture of the helmet that saved my life…
After several months of recovering from my injuries, I dedicated my life to
helping others achieve optimal health...and that includes having ripped six-pack abs.
The AbTension Training System was designed to help you burn belly
fat and get rock hard 6-pack abs with NO sit-ups, crunches or long boring cardio session.
It took me nearly 25 years to develop these unique belly fat burning
workouts that use very specific bodyweight ab exercises,
high-intensity/short-duration interval training and a special "Tension Training" series
guaranteed to incinerate the fat around your midsection.
In my opinion, you won't ever need another system to help you get ripped best
midsection of your life...
How do I know this system works?
Because it's the exact same one I used to go from this...
230 pounds of flab!
Yep...I used to fit in those pants!
That's right...I used to be real chubby.
OK...who am I trying to kid? I was fat. I looked just like Tim Allen in that move
The Santa Clause...all puffy...but with less good cheer!
You see, my last job required me to travel 5 days per week and
live in a hotel.
Every Monday morning, I would leave on the earliest flight
available from Detroit, MI, to Birmingham, AL. I would rent a
car, and drive to work in Cottondale, AL. After working a 10-hour plus
day, I would pick-up some fast food and return to my “home” at the hotel.
For breakfast, I would grab something quick from the free hotel
buffet…typically a bagel with cream cheese, a couple of pastries and a coffee with cream and
sugar. For lunch I would buy a candy bar or some other snack food from the vending machine in
the cafeteria, or grab some fast-food if I had time.
After work, it was more fast food or a “big” dinner at one of
the many national chain restaurants located near my hotel. Toss in a few beers
and it was time to call it a night.
Of course, I didn’t go to sleep right
away. The hotel had cable, so I usually stayed up late watching TV while all of that food
sat in my gut like I had just swallowed a basketball. After a few hours of
un-restful sleep, I was up early the next day to repeat the entire routine.
At the end of the week, I’d get to fly back home and spend 2
days with my family before it was time to leave again.
After spending the week taking care of the kids without me, do
you think my wife was in the mood to cook me a healthy meal? Nope! We’d just go out to
It’s no surprise that I gained over 30 lbs. that first year on
the job. The second year I spent working the same routine, just in a different location (Edison,
The results were a little better. I ONLY gained another 10
(or so) pounds that year.
I went from being active and athletic to fat and sick in less
than 2 years.
When I graduated from college, I weighed 185 lbs. with 6% body
fat. After my experience as a “road warrior,” I tipped the scales at
225+ lbs. and my body fat was closer to 26%.
I also developed a host of health issues because of the weight
gain and unhealthy lifestyle, including:
Frequent attacks of gout…very painful!!!
High blood pressure.
Elevated blood sugar
Alternating constipation and diarrhea
Sore joints and other unexplained “aches and pains”
I was a complete mess! I had to do something
different, or I wasn’t going to make it.
I took control of my life, starting eating healthier and
followed an intense workout program. I was able to lose over 35
lbs., and I wanted to make sure I kept it off even when I had to travel.
So I made a few “small” changes and they worked for
only was I able to keep off the original 35 lbs…I continued to lose weight.
Then the real "fun" started!
I was a comfortable weight, but I was still a little soft around
the middle. You know...typical middle-aged man body.
I made up my mind that I wanted six-pack
abs...so I started reading every ab resource I could get my hands on.
I talking medical journals, magazine articles, bodybuilding manuals, psyiology books, anatomy diagrams...if it
was about ab development, then I read it.
I took everything I knew and everything I learned and starting
experimenting with all of the different exercises. I figured out what worked best for my lower abs, my
upper abs, my obliques and my back. I rearranged the exercise order. I varied my intensity level. I changed
the number of reps.
I could go on and on...suffice to say that I FINALLY
figured out what worked best for each of the muscle groups in my midsection.
And that's what you'll find in The AbTension System.
It doesn't matter if you're fat and out of shape or a
world-class athlete...you'll find core strength and ab training exercises in this system will help you get the
rock-hard midsection you've always wanted.
