Cybergenics Review - Does This Workout System Work? Are cost and lack of weight loss deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 4.1 / 5.0
Cybergenics Review

Cybergenics has generated a lot of buzz in the last 20 years, so we’re here to cut through the noise and provide an accurate assessment of this product line. We’ll look at the ingredients, side effects, pricing, customer-service, and more. We also read hundreds of reviews and comments online; then we summarized and condensed what we found to give you the info you need to decide if Cybergenics is right for you.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Cybergenics with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

Cybergenics is a line of products designed for weight lifters. Their products are designed to help gain muscle and sculpt your body. The products include workout programs, muscle building supplements, and more. The pills can be taken anywhere, and the weightlifting programs seem easy to follow.
Cybergenics has been around since the 1990s, which is encouraging, but their product line was recently acquired by a company in Australia. Their products are available directly from the Australian company and seem to offer good results for those looking to build muscle. We do like that the company has been around for 25 years, that the ingredients seem to work for those looking to gain weight, and that there’s a wide variety of products available, but read on…

Price –“Pricing Increased After the Company Was Sold”

One thing that we immediately noticed about Cybergenics was the high cost of the products. “Cybergenics products can quickly add up to close to $1000 if you follow all of the workout programs and order the supplements,” said our research editor. “There are many more affordable products on the market that will provide comparable results.” With several workout programs costing over $100 each, supplements costing $80-100, and weight loss programs costing $60 or more, the cost quickly adds up and becomes too much for most dieters.
“I used to use these products, but pricing increased after the company was sold, and I can no longer afford them,” said one user.
“I was going to buy these products and see if they worked, but at this price, I’ll find something different,” said another.

Lack of Weight Loss–“Not Designed for Those Looking to Lose Weight”

Cybergenics is designed for those looking to gain weight by building muscle. This is great if you’re into bodybuilding or weightlifting, but for those looking to lose weight, this can be an issue. “This product is not designed for those looking to lose weight, so don’t be disappointed or surprised if you gain weight when taking Cybergenics,” said one customer.
“This product works if you’re looking to gain weight, but it definitely won’t help you slim down,” said another. “If you’re looking to lose weight, this product isn’t for you. This will help you get more fit, but you’re more likely to gain weight than to lose it,” said one positive review.
If part of a diet or exercise program is especially difficult (bad tasting supplements, lack of weight loss, difficult workouts, etc.), our research has shown that dieters are less likely to see long-term success. If Cybergenics really doesn’t help people lose weight, it may make it difficult for dieters to meet their long-term fitness goals.

The Science–Enough to Justify the Price?

There was very little evidence supporting the Cybergenics claims, and we were unable to find an ingredient list, which means we couldn’t research the supplements on our own. The lack of science was disappointing to us, so we dug into the workout programs that the company offers. While these workouts do seem to have some evidence supporting their effectiveness for building muscle mass, there’s no evidence that they will help dieters lose weight. In the end, we ended up disappointed in the lack of science with Cybergenics; and with nothing to justify the high cost of these supplements and programs, we’re left skeptical of the products’ claims.

The Bottom Line–Does It Work?

We do like that Cybergenics has been around for over 20 years and that they offer a wide variety of workout products, but without scientific evidence supporting Cybergenics as a weight loss supplement, we’re unsure of its effectiveness for those looking to lose weight. We also have reservations about the high prices and the lack of weight loss results.

If you’re looking for a new way to lose weight, we suggest you find a supplement that offers value and performance and is backed by scientific research.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. With a four-ingredient proprietary formula, Leptigen offers minimal side effects. The ingredients have been featured in scientific research where it was shown to improve weight loss by boosting metabolism and improving the body’s natural fat-burning capabilities. We read user reviews online, and dieters seem to agree that Leptigen offers consistent, affordable weight loss.
The makers of Leptigen are offering a special trial offer for a limited time, which shows that they are confident that you’ll see great results with their supplement.

Cybergenics (Advanced Nutrition Systems) is a "sports nutrition" company that specializes in weight loss and bodybuilding supplements. It appears to have been founded by one Paul Becker of Oregon. In regards to bodybuilding, they offer products like the "60 Day Total Body Building System" for $139.95 and the "Phase 1 Six Week BodySculpting Program" for $109.95. As far as weight reduction goes, Cybergenics offers the "Cybertrim Six Week Mega Weight Loss Program" for $119.95 and the "Quick Trim 14 Day Weight Loss System" for $59.95. In addition to these products, Cybergenics provides users with a "free weekly fitness tips newsletter."

The Quick Trim 14 Day Weight Loss System by Cybergenics consists of a manual that assists with diet and exercise, along with "advanced supplementation." This product aims to help users lose body fat quickly over a two-week period. The Cybertrim Six Week Mega Weight Loss Program, on the other hand, incorporates a combination of four supplements, a diet and exercise manual, an audio tape, as well as calipers and charts to keep track of body fat. There do not appear to be any customer testimonials posted on the official website. Unfortunately, no free trial samples of Cybergenics supplements are available through the website at this time. Cybergenics weight loss and bodybuilding products do not appear to come with any money-back or satisfaction guarantees.

  • Cybergenics products do not come with a 100% money-back/satisfaction guarantee.
  • No full product ingredient lists are posted on the official website.
  • The Cybergenics website is quite basic and appears to lack substantial information.
  • Cybergenics is clearly intended for professional weight lifters and body builders, not for those looking to simply lose a few pounds.


Overall, the Cybergenics product line doesn't really stand out much in the massive market of weight loss supplements, pills and programs. On the bright side, Cybergenics does appear to encourage eating healthy and exercising. However, there is too much information left off of their official website. It would be nice to see some real clinical proof, a 100% satisfaction guarantee, full supplement ingredient lists, a few free trial samples of Cybergenics supplements, as well as some customer testimonials offered to support Cybergenics products.

    In response to one reviewer’s comment about there being no guidance on the monitoring of fats, I heartily disagree. The book contains a nice, very thorough listing of items that constitute a serving of fat.

    How can I order cybergenics


    Stephen (Editor)

    Their products are available directly from the Australian company; likely retailer in Australia. However visit the official site for international purchases.

    I was in my 40s when I started using Cybergenics Quick Trim. Weight loss was marginal as I was not overweight (147 lbs), but even at that age my muscular definition improved greatly. I was disappointed to be told that the product was no longer available in England, because, for me, it worked very well.

    I was a model in the 80’s and although I had to stay lean all year round…for those times of the year when we shot bikini catalogs, calendars or did swimwear shows I had to step up my game. I used Cybergenics QuickTrim several times. It was amazing! It was also my first experience with carb cycling. They never called it that within the boxed system or the food plan they layed out for you, but that is what it was carb cycling with some well thought out supplements. It came with 4 supplements (if I remember) some for night, some for day, some for the first week or so and one for the last few days.

    I stopped modeling and through the years stayed with my fitness, I even bounced back after having 2 kids…but that “tightening up” to that modeling standard was just not my priority. I was fit, just not calendar fit. Then I had 3 kids and it was harder to lose the baby weight, even with regular workouts and attention to diet. I looked for QT again to give me that jolt!

    By then I could not find QT anymore except on ebay, and I felt it might be unused but not necessarily fresh product (i.e. out of date, not optimal in nutritional supplements)

    All of a sudden then I started hearing advertisements about “Kim Kardashian’s Diet Plan With Quick Trim” and that she and her sister lost all this weight from Quicktrim. There was no mention of Cybergenics. It was also a 2 week program…but now instead of all the athlete familiar ingredients of the day, there were supplements that were loaded with caffeine equivalent to 4 cups of coffee, plus green tea (more caffeine) and other things. Although caffeine can boost energy and may be helpful as a supplement…this product relied on way too much caffeine to “burn fat” and is in NO way what the original QT was.

    I don’t know if the “concept” of QT was sold…or the name was reused for a completely different product that coincidentally was a 2 week program but it is not the same fat burners, hi fiber tablets for the first week to “move things along” and herbal diuretics (that were taken in the last few days of the plan).

    I think it is really sad CYBERGENICS QUICK TRIM is now a mere memory, it was not a scam as I have seen people asking on other sites. It was a grey program if you had a countdown to something like a wedding a a modeling shoot, a jumpstart to a competition whatever. It worked if you followed the instructions telling you how mud protein you should eat in a day, which many people not in a fit industry, or in the gym would know. This spurred a lot of people to pursue a better, more fit body.

    I used the 90 day state-of-the art weight loss program along with aerobics to lose 60 pounds 20 years ago. I went from a size 16 to a size 6 in a little over 5 months. 170 pounds to 110 pounds… I have a picture to prove it really does work. I’m going to do it again to lose about 40 pounds this time. Just trying to decide which one this time!!!…

    I have an unopened 60 day total body building kit. However it is expired since 2006. I know all the pill bottles have silica packets to keep fresh from using a kit in 2005. Was debating on using this rare kit as it was a display and never opened or just selling it on Ebay. But these kits are highly effective.

    I used cybergenics over 15 years ago when it was sold through GNC. My body responds quicky to a high protein diet and i did everything as i was instructed and lost 14lbs in 14 days as they were claiming back then. I can tell you it does work. I ate a lot of chicken and drank a gallon of water a day, by the end of the program it felt as if the chicken was multiplying in my mouth, it was getting very difficult to swallow. But i did it and i reached my goal. Here I am years later looking for similar or same program because i know it works.



    hi, can you tell me if you know where can i found those pills?cause i was in that program like you over 15 years ago, and it worked for me!!

    I used the Cybergenics 60 day program in 1987 and 1991. I was drug tested at work regularly as required and never had any issues ! The program was by far the best I have aver used ! I am on the “site” today because I want to do it again! I am surprised at the drug test failure comments ?


  • 18

    I used the Phase I system in the early 90’s and it worked great! I was in the best shape of my life. It was hard to keep my shirt on. Im now 41 and want to do the 60 day program but was wondering, is the product the same as it was back then??? Steroid or no steroid, I want the old stuff!!!

    I tried the 14 Day Quick Trim Diet 15 years ago and it worked. I went down from 245 lbs. to 205 lbs. I followed the instructions diligently. I also lifted weights and rode the stationary cycle. After two weeks I was looking real good and felt great not to mention the boost it gave to my self esteem. I have gained a few pounds throughout the years but if I did it once I can do it again.

    I used cybergenics Phase 1 in 1993 and by far I was in the best shape of my life. I went from weighing 135 with hardly any muscle to 165 and was ripped. I ate what ever I wanted and worked hard at the gym and did all this in less than 3 months. I highly recommend it and I tell people about it all the time. I didn’t know about the steroid thing either but did have people ask me if I was taking them.

    I also used Cybergenics Cybertrim in 1995, went from 225-155 eating healty running everyday 3 miles and had an active lifestyle. I always wondered what happened to this product? I thought it was recalled or made people have diseases? But it sure did work, didnt know about the steroid thing!

    Cybergenics 6 week program is the best weight loss program I’ve ever used. I’ve used it twice. Once in 1997 and again in 2009; both times to loose weight, 45 lb & 43 lb weight loss respectively. It worked well and helped me meet my weight loss goals, especially after I had platued at a body weight I could not seemingly get down past. This system really works. I’m glad they still sell it. I originally found it in Muscule & Fitness. Because it worked so well in 1997, I bought a 2nd box, and held onto it. Then last year, I used that 2nd box. It was 12 yrs old, but it still worked just as good as before. Simply Amazing. I hope the current stuff is as good as the original stuff.


  • 28

    I used the 14 day quick trim years ago and had awesome results. I lost 17 pounds in 8 days and then found out I was pregnant. I stopped taking them but continued to lose weight all through my pregnancy. I ate whatever I wanted. By the time I had my daughter I had only gained what she was which was 6 pounds. I had 2 children previously and was at my pre pregnancy weight before all kids. Great Product. Strict but stick with it and you will be pleased.


  • 29

    I used the 14 day plan after my son was born 15 years ago. It worked great! I lost 17 lbs in 2 weeks. The plan was easy to follow. I felt very healthy and energetic. This is a great product!


  • 30

    I used the training program back in 1991-2 while I was in Korea and did not take any vitamins due to the fact my buddy had bought it and use them. It was the best”the best shape” I have ever been in period :60 day primer: blue book; It works but it is hard.. the pay off is being like a cover of a Muscule and Fitness magazine. Paul Becker still sells it on the web but, I dont know if it is still the same program or suppliments. Anything hard in life is worth the payoff..


  • 31

    They stopped selling the Total Body Building System awhile back ago because it was found to have Steroids in it. This was years and years back though, and even after the mess was cleared, I don’t think any stores wanted to bring that back, especially with new body building systems that came out around the same time like MetRX, etc.



    Interesting. I had suspected that to be the case. When I used it, I looked and felt great. Not only that, I was squating and deadlifting over 300 lbs for reps, and I felt like I could bend steel with my bare hands, and I weighed only around 165 lbs.

    Too bad though. This stuff worked well enough that the benefit outweighed the cost. And suddenly….it was off the market.

    I was just wondering how come you can no longer buy cybergenics in the United States. I first used it in 1986 and the last time I was able to buy some was in 1995. I love this product and often tell everyone how great it is. Most people never heard of this product, which I find hard to believe.
