Anyone heard of/read about this stuff?
Found a link for it on Muscle & Fitness FB page. You can google the title of my post and find the article. It's in the top 5 returned searches. I'm very skeptical. Most of the comments under the article seem to be fabricated and I can't find any articles about this stuff on it in these forums. Obviously it sounds too good to be true but I wanted to get some feedback from the pros!

Elevate GF and 1285 Muscle ??
06-07-2013, 09:40 AM #2
I'm currently on my third day taking Elevate GF a half-hour before bed and 1285 Muscle about 45 minutes prior to working out. My profile picture is of me prior to beginning this supplement regiment. If nothing else, I'll upload one at the conclusion of the month trial and you can decide for yourself if it works. If anyone out there has anything negative or positive to say about either of these supplements, it would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

I read on the internet that you have a free 14 day free trial from the time of order. So if it takes a week to get to your doorstep you only have a week to test. Also they will automatically ship you a full bottle at $90.00 a pop after that. I would hold off on this. Does it work I doubt it but there are not a lot of testimonials out there yet.

I will tell you about my experience with this product. I think it is a rip off, but while using it I have had great results.
I am 40. Never went to the gym, never worked out other than the occasional mountain bike ride or game of golf. Upon turning 40, I noticed that I was looking old and with a four year old full of energy, I felt that I owed it to her to get into shape, stop eating like a 12 year old and take better care of myself.
I started slow, mainly with diet - started eating better foods, fruits, grains, sushi, fillet, chicken....lots of chicken and a lot of protein.
I started taking some multi-vitamins, drinking plenty of water and cut out all of my favorite foods that were bad for me.
That was in February. I weighed 182 lbs, and I am 6' tall.
In April I decided that I wanted to take it up a notch and joined Gold's Gym next to my house. I've never been a "gym" person, but I realized I needed a place to go and do this. I was already feeling better, especially since I cut out drinking and smoking, but I wanted to work on some strength and cardio training. At this point my stomach looked like a baby seal, smooth and round like I just ate a turkey dinner. LOL.
When I started I could barely run 1.5 miles on the treadmill until I was out of breath and fatigued.
Gold's has a nice Matrix circuit so I figured that would be a good place for me to start.
Leg press machine I could only do 150lbs to start
Biceps machine I could only do 70 lbs to start
Lat machine I could only do 70 lbs to start
Rowing machine I could only do 70 lbs to start
Ab crunch machine I could only do 90 lbs to start
Back extension machine I could only do 100 lbs to start
Hip machines I could only do 70 lbs to start
Pec Fly machine I couls only do 80 lbs to start
Leg extension machine I could only do 80 lbs to start
Tricep machine I could only do 90 lbs to start
Needless to say I did not have a lot of muscle to start with. I was out of shape.
After my second week at the gym, I saw the ad for these supplements. I ordered them, they were costly, but I make nice money and I wanted to try something. Being new to this and having expendable cash, I figured what the heck.
By the fourth week at Gold's I was feeling much better.
I ramped up my work outs on a weekly basis, by following Jim Wendler's weight lifting program.
It's painful, I hurt every night going to bed.
I did cardio like crazy every day, plus I lifted.
Most people tell me I am crazy, but I the results have been amazing.
It is now June 20th, I just ran my first 5K race yesterday and finished in the top 20% and my work out routine at this point is this:
Run 6.0 miles every other day
elliptical 65 minutes every other day - starting at level 5 and increasing it 1 level every 5 minutes.
I lift four to five times a week on 13 different machines:
Leg press machine I do 300 lbs to start, 3 sets 12 reps, last set 15 reps
Biceps machine I do 110 lbs to start, 3 sets, 12 reps
Lat machine I could only do 120 lbs to start, 3 sets, 12 reps
Rowing machine I do 120 lbs to start, 3 sets 12 reps
Ab crunch machine I do 190 lbs to start, 4 sets 17 reps
Back extension machine I do 200 lbs 3 sets 12 reps
Hip machines I do 160 lbs, 3 sets 15 reps
Pec Fly machine I do 130 lbs, 3 sets, 12 reps
Leg extension machine I do 150 lbs, 3 sets 12 reps
Tricep machine I do 150 lbs, 3 sets 12 reps
I don't have any more belly fat. I have a nice 8 pack coming in and all of my arms, shoulders and chest are filling out with lean muscle. By no means am I a large guy either, but, I do see a huge difference in my muscle tone, the way my clothes fit and what I am capable of now.
I never thought I would ever be going to the gym or let alone posting on a body building forum, but as far as I am concerned I am pleased with the supplements, but I am also inexperienced to know if it has been a combination of my work out routine and better eating habits.
I don't know if those type of gains in weight limits/for lifting are typical, but the only other supplements I have been taking are Muscle Milk protein shakes. I like to mix it in whole milk and add a little Hershey's chocolate syrup ;-). I do about 60-75G a day in Muscle Milk protein shakes.
The best compliment I received was from a woman I am dating. The first time she saw me without a shirt on was about four weeks into my work out routine, I don't think she was impressed. Two weeks ago she saw me again and her mouth dropped. Two nights ago, she raved at how "hot" I was. To me, that is the best compliment, especially coming from a woman 8 years younger than me. I'll take those results any day and if I need to take 1285 for a few more months to get there, so be it.
Although the icing on the cake for me is being able to carry my daughter through an amusement park on my back without getting tired. :-)
Have a great work out!

So after 42 days of elevate gf and 1285 muscle, I did notice results (you can judge for yourself via my before and after photos). It is not a miracle product(s) by any means but I feel it did help me to an extent. Feedback would be appreciated.
Also beware of their "free trial". In both cases you get your original bottle for free, but they'll charge you close to $100 a pop every month after until you call and cancel your "subscription". Hope this helps.

Hear me loud and clear do not buy elevate gf.i paid a few bucks for a trial bottle next thing you know my credit card was being charged $105.00.i blame myself for not reading the fine print,but i kept the bottle and tried the product for a couple of months just to see if it works.i did not get anything out of this product so i called them to cancel and they were trying to get me to stay for 1/2 off.i told them i refuse to pay another dollar for a product that aint doing a damn thing for me.i have no hidden agenda i just telling you guys the truth,the 105.00 a month a paid was a total waste.i figured if i spent that much i would see some type of results.smh

First of all I can not see any difference after using the product. I tried it a couple of weeks and did not notice anything . Secondly , I was charged for a membership and the bottle I received a week after ordering. So by the time I got the trial I had one day to cancel. Isn't the point of a trial to have time to try and see results? Anyway I got the charges reversed because they didn't wait their 12 days from ORDER date not date you receive. Maybe it will work for you but I would immediately cancel when received to be on the safe side of avoiding extra charges

Total rip imo... I bought the two then cancelled my subscription after they arrived so I wouldn't get popped with the automatic $90 charge they make to your credit card every month. But I still had to pay some $20 or so for a cancellation fee. But I figured for $25, or whatever it came out to be, that it would still be worth it. Far from it. I just finished both bottles about a week ago and noticed zero changes. I have a solid diet and my weight and strength stayed the same. My guess is it may have a placebo effect on some. But I would suggest just sticking with pre/creatine/whey/caseinBench: 305

1285 MUSCLE - fake product!
Be wary people this is a FAKE product that does NOT work – 1285 MUSCLE.
Let me explain how they are busted:
The company promoting this product stole my photos (see my wordpress blog for the article/advert. My blog name gertlouw) and they write up a fake story as if I told it. (2nd time I busted a company doing this).
They have to steal photos and write fake stories to try and prove a unprovable point – that this product does not work.
The truth is I did my transformation with an intense program over a 4 year period and NOT 4 weeks! If you want to know how I did it WITHOUT this product see my wordpress blog for my complete program.
I am ready to sue these people…Any attorney out there that want to make some money…PLEASE contact me!

yellow pills yes, blue and white no
a buddy of mine ordered this and didnt end up wanting them because we are military an he thought he would pop hot, so i took them. The first order came as the picture showed with the yellow pills, they seemed to work as after 2 weeks I saw gains in many lifts, which was really good went from 80's to 90's on incline dumbbell press. The next pills from the order he got were blue and white, I noticed the difference and still tried them out. They seemed to do nothing.

DON'T ORDER THESE PRODUCTS. They are a scam. I ordered the free sample. 2 weeks later, they charged my Card for the full amount, and then sent me another bottle a month later at the cost of $99/month. If you dont call to cancel they keep sending you the product at full cost. I am returning the bottle I just received and I'll only get $25 back after shipping and restocking fees.I love to lift crew
