For some time now I have seen Cory Gregory pop up on various social media of mine. I decided to do some digging on the guy and needless to say, Cory’s background piqued my interest. It really seemed to me as though he had some real expertise in the fitness industry and so I thought that I would give Cory G’s membership a shot. In short… I was a bit taken aback by the membership.
In a second I will explain what I mean.
Anyhow, I decided to write this post to give an overview of the membership, to share my experience with it, and to voice my opinion on the program. That being said if you are curious to know what Cory Gregory’s membership is all about, stay tuned. I will go over exactly what you can expect from this membership.
But first… a little about myself…
Who am I
Hey, what’s up.
I’m Ethan and I love weight lifting. For as long as I can remember my main goal has been to put on lean muscle. Ever since high school, I have been hitting the gym and over the years after studying up on the proper methods by reading countless articles and hundreds of YouTube videos, I have slowly been improving my physique.
Why I subscribed to Cory’s Membership
I wouldn’t consider myself to be anything close to an expert. I still have so much to learn. Of course, that is why I am interested in learning from fitness experts like Cory Gregory.
However, this is only part of the reason why I purchased the program. The main reason why I purchased this program is so that I could review it and share my thoughts.
Simply put, I have found that there are dozens of extremely popular fitness influencers on Instagram that sell programs, however, there aren’t too many people online verifying these programs or providing feedback on these programs. As a result, it’s really hard for people that are interested in these programs to tell if they are really worth the money or if these fitness influencers are trustworthy.
That being said, I took it upon myself to review some of these programs and to share whether or not I think they are worth the money. In doing so, I hope that my readers can benefit from the feedback I provide on these programs so they can make a more informed decision on whether or not to buy the program.
Who is Cory Gregory
Cory Gregory is by far one of the most qualified fitness professionals to be giving fitness advice. He is a certified exercise specialist, a certified NESTA nutrition coach, and a cross-fit trainer.
As far as Cory’s fitness accomplishments go, he has competed in over 30 powerlifting competitions and has competed in 14 drug-free bodybuilding competitions. His best lifts consist of a 550 pound squat, and a 575 pound deadlift at a bodyweight of 198 pounds.
Cory is also quite accomplished in the fitness business. At the young age of 20 years old, he opened his first gym. As he started to become recognized as a go-to resource for training and nutrition, Cory continued with his entrepreneurial endeavors. He co-founded Muslcepharm, a popular sports nutrition brand as well as Activ8Media, a consulting company. Of course, he has also launched corygfitness.com where he offers his membership program.
It’s clear that Cory has had great success in both his own personal fitness development as well as his various fitness-related businesses. Based on his credentials I would most certainly consider him to be a reputable resource to learn from.1
Overview of the Cory G Fitness membership
To give you an idea of what is included in Cory’s program I will give some commentary on each of the sections displayed on the header of the corygfitness.com website membership login.
Daily Challenge: The Daily Challenge is simply a collection of different daily workouts. There are over 400 workouts to choose from. These are great if you want to just try various workouts here and there as without dedicating to a long term training plan. Included in the Daily Challenge are the following subsections…
- Pump workouts: These workouts are designed for muscle building, and they are broken down in subsections by muscle group (abs, arms, back, chest, legs, shoulders). Many of these workouts are taken from the “get stacked plan” which we will talk about later.
- Sweat workouts: These workouts, as you can imagine, are cardio-intensive workouts.
- Wifey workout: These workouts are geared toward women who have busy lives that might have a hard time making time fo the gym. That being said, these workouts require very little equipment and can be done at home.
- Lunge and learn: This subsection is a collection of 30 motivational YouTube videos that are intended to be watched daily for a month. These motivational videos are typically speeches or talks by successful individuals in business or fitness.
4 Week Workouts: Each subsection of the 4 week workout section features a different set of workout plans. Included in the 4 Week Workouts are the following subsections…
- Get Stacked Plan: Each “Get stacked” plan features a different weekly plan you can follow with different workouts for each day of the week.
- 40 Day Transformation: This plan is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a workout schedule to help you lean down over the course of 40 days.
- Dumbbell Shred: These workouts are perfect if you have very little equipment because every workout here features no other equipment than a set of dumbbells.
- Squatlife Plan: This plan is ideal if you are want to put on some serious leg gains and increase your max squat.

There is also an “anabolic” subsection that goes into great detail on what anabolic fasting is, and how to incorporate it into your training. Cory likes to use a combination of video and written content to make his points.
Articles: In this section Cory posts about his own personal journey as well as actionable tips you can incorporate into your training.
Videos: Cory has various subsections listed here that feature videos about the following topics…
Audio: Here Cory features episodes from his podcast, “Business and Biceps”.
My opinion: what I liked and what I didn’t like
There are many things to like about Cory G’s membership. For one, he provides a ton of material to go over, and I mean a TON of material. The following stats should give you an idea of how much content there actually is to sift through…
- 400 daily challenge workouts
- Over 130 sweat workouts
- Over 70 wifey workouts
- Over 200 pump workouts
- Over 49 months of months worth of workouts with the Get Stacked Plan
- Over 46 months worth of workouts with the Squat Life Plan
- Over 20 months worth of workouts with the Straight Power plan
- Hundreds of blog posts
- Hundreds of videos
It’s safe to say that Cory doesn’t hold back at all when it comes to providing content. Cory’s content is also high quality and chock-full of actionable tips that you can implement right away to improve your technique in the gym as well as your diet and nutrition habits. I think it’s safe to say that Cory gives you everything you need in his membership to smash your fitness goals.
So overall I was really impressed with the program due to the sheer amount of high-quality content.
However… there are, of course, some things that I didn’t like about the program. The main concern I have is that the program is incredibly overwhelming at first. I mean there is so much content that it’s tough to figure out at first where to even start. When I first got the program I really had to spend some time just clicking around to make sense of the different parts of the membership platform just so that I could see what various sections discussed.
However, it also didn’t help that there aren’t clear descriptions of certain sections. For instance, I first clicked on the Daily Challenge section looking for a description of what the Daily Challenge actually is and couldn’t find anything. Then I clicked on the Pump Workouts hoping for a description of what a “Pump Workout” actually means and couldn’t find a description of what this term is. The workouts in these sections and the accompanying video footage was all great quality, but I just wished there was an upfront explanation of the purposes of these workouts in the first place.
Simply put, the membership is just slightly difficult to navigate and figure out the best way to make the most of it given your fitness goals.
Would I recommend it?
I most certainly would recommend the membership no matter whether you are a novice weight lifter, a seasoned bodybuilder, or a powerlifter. There is something in this membership for everyone.
Given his credentials, Cory undoubtedly knows his stuff and he has the physique to prove it. For less than 10 dollars a month I think this membership is a steal.
However, if you are going to buy the program, I would recommend you have a clear fitness objective in mind that you want to pursue. This way, you can get started on one of Cory’s plans within the program right away that caters to your needs and stick to it for the best results. Otherwise you might find yourself bouncing around different parts of the membership from cardio to powerlifting to bodybuilding without any clear direction and you probably won’t get as much out of the membership as you could.
“Can I find Cory G’s membership content for free?”
To my knowledge, you can’t find this memberships content published anywhere for free given that this would be a violation of the copyright on Cory’s material.
