About Us

Dear Friend,

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...

To this...

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 dinner. 


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, NJ). 


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.

·         High cholesterol

·         Elevated blood sugar

·         Cold sores

·         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 me.  Not 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.

I know you're dying to know...YES...at the age of 41 I still have rock-hard six-pack abs and I still use The AbTension System every day!
