Start Here


Welcome to Aesthetic Physiques, home of Dave Bonollo, where you’ll find fitness information intermixed with sports, beer and Taylor Swift.

My name is Dave Bonollo. I created this site to help my friends get in shape without all the B.S. or trying to sell them supplements they don’t need.  (If you want to read more about me, here is my About Me page.)

I’m not into tricking you into the newest fitness fads (like the Shake Weight), pushing supplements on you saying “Do nothing and this pill will make you skinny” or listicles (5 ways to lose belly fat), I tried it once but it sounds too close to testicles for me.

The media will try to convince you that you can lose fat by taking a pill or putting a neoprene corset on to make your stomach smaller.

Truth is, the only things that truly work is hard work and a proper diet.  There is no amount of “diet food” or magical pill that can do that for you.

If you’re like most of my readers, you’ve probably tried something you saw on a late night infomercial thinking their claims would be true.  I’ve been there, done that.  Instead of beating myself up because of my failures, I decided to enjoy the process of getting healthy.

I think you probably are looking for the same things too. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here, right?!

Do what you enjoy and you’ll never workout a day in your life.

That’s what Aesthetic Physiques is all about.  Achieving the results you want, feeling great, and grabbing life by the short and curlies.

About this time, a lot of people will ask me, “What makes you the expert?” My answer is, “I’m not.”

I’m a guy that has been in the fitness game for years experimenting, learning and failing.  I have spent a lot of time reading, listening and trying different training and dieting philosophies to achieve my Aesthetic Physique.  I don’t have all the answers but I am on a journey to discover them.

If you’re interested in achieving your Aesthetic Physique and looking better naked, I invite you to join my friends!

Step 2: Check Out The Blog

Each week-ish I post the best content for fitness on the web. I cover all topics including diet, beginner and advanced training techniques, fat loss, muscle gain, goal setting and more.

I’ve even written a posts on avoiding a hangover and creating the perfect cheat day.  My goal is to create a resource of information you care about and give you ways to implement it in your life.

I write my blog like I talk to my friends.  There is swearing, dick jokes and 80’s and 90’s references.

If you are easily offended, then you might want to go somewhere else.

If you’re still here and new to the site, here is a few good posts to get you started:
