Wits & Weights | Smart Science to Build Muscle and Lose Fat

Philip Pape, Evidence-Based Nutrition Coach & Fat Loss Expert

For skeptics of the fitness industry who want to work smarter, not harder. Wits & Weights cuts through the noise and deconstructs health and fitness with an engineering mindset to help you build a strong, lean physique without the BS.

Nutrition coach Philip Pape explores time-efficient strength training, nutrition, and lifestyle strategies to optimize your body composition sustainably. Simple. Science-based. No fads, no gimmicks, just evidence-based info you can trust. That's why they call him the Physique Engineer.

From restrictive fad diets to ineffective workouts and hyped-up supplements, there's no shortage of lies and half-truths designed to keep you confused and spending your hard-earned cash (and time) on stuff that doesn't work.

But getting in the best shape of your life doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming. By using your WITS and lifting WEIGHTS, you can build muscle, lose stubborn fat, and achieve your dream physique. We bring you smart, time-efficient strategies for movement, metabolism, muscle, and mindset.

If you're ready to separate fact from fiction, learn what actually works, and join a tribe of truth-seekers who are done with the hype and ready to put in the intelligent work, hit that "follow" button and let's engineer your best physique ever.
