Few teams have redefined and expanded the Next Level like the legendary team The Dense. These five men (along with their peer guides Chris and Scott) expanded the scope of the program to incorporate a high degree of sociological, psychological and artistic topics.
The Dense was ferociously competitive, yet dedicated to the success of the group. Their innovation was unrivaled, and their diets represented the most "livable" and enjoyable versions of athletic eating ever concocted. (4% bodyfat achieved on a diet that includes fast food multiple times per week? Yes, please!)
The athletes on the Dense were very social too, often hanging out after meetings and frequently working out together. They also were very involved with the 2007 Women's Team, BellaForté, creating a mutual brother-sister team relationship that allowed both teams to thrive.
They were also the most-photographed teams of all time - over 2,000 photos of their time together!
The bar set by The Dense is still used as a measure for team success in The Next Level.
