Join me live on New Years Eve when I am going to shutdown my fitness servers. That means that this website (, and will be gone forever. I am 60 and only have so many prime years left and I dont want to spend them maintaining a suite of fitness tools and websites. I have provided free information, fitness tools, and meal planners for the last 16 years, now its someone elses turn to carry the torch.

Scooby to raise 250k for charity

This does not affect my Scooby1961 YouTube channel. I will continue to upload one video every week as I have every week since 2006.

What is going to charity is everything running on my server. The 1590 pages of content at that have hundreds of millions of views, the 9 online fitness tools, which has made over 6 million meal plans, all the domain names, and all the username/passwords. Here is how it will work. If I can find a buyer to buy all my content and custom fitness tool software for 250k before New Years Eve, I will give 100% of that $250,000 to charity. The money will never touch my hands, it will go from the buyer, to an escrow account, then to the charity. The charity will be chosen by the buyer BUT it must be a 501(c)(3) public charity related to health, fitness, or animal rescue. Please if you know anyone who wants an instant online fitness presence who also wants to help out a charity, let them know about this opportunity.

If I can’t find a buyer, I will be shutting down everything on New Years Eve and that will be the end. I highly recommend that you print out a few free custom meal plans at custommealplanner for cutting, bulking, and maintaining at various bodyweights. Do NOT pay for the premium version, the free meal plans are the most optimal for both gaining muscle and losing fat.

No, I will not give my content away for free, even to turn it open source. People do not value nor take care of things they get for free and I would rather let my tools die with dignity than become an embarrassment. If you want these tools to remain available, then raise 250k for charity and find someone to manage the content responsibly.

Join me live on New Years Eve to watch me shut down my server or hopefully introduce the new custodian of scoobysworkshop and custommealplanner. The broadcast is at 2400 which is new years even in England, 7pm EST, 4pm PST.

This website is for those who want to look great and feel great. Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time. My focus here is on workouts the natural bodybuilder can do at home with inexpensive equipment. Don’t be fooled, home workouts do not mean easy workouts and they can be just as effective as the gym. This site is FREE and there are no “members-only” sections or newsletters to buy, its my way of giving back to the sport that has given me so much. I don’t encourage the use of any supplements or the purchase of any new equipment, you can build a fantastic physique with just a cheap used set of dumbbells.

I am an engineer and one thing I am known for in the fitness and bodybuilding worlds is the unsurpassed quality of my free tools. Ten years ago I started with my calorie calculator which would make one sample meal. It was so popular that in 2015 I made a second generation planner which allowed full meal planning … and it was even MORE popular. I learned a lot from that second generation meal planner so I spent over 2000 development hours improving its shortcomings to make the best free fitness meal planner in the world. Whether you want to bulk, cut, or recomp using keto, low-carb, medium-carb, vegan, or vegetarian – my new meal planner lets you make an optimal meal plan in a single click. Although it keeps the simplicity of the old meal planner by having a “Create Quick Meal Plan” button for one click meal plan generation, it also allows full and complete flexibility and allows you to enter your own recipes. Some of its amazing features include the ability to make a shopping list in a single click, the ability to tell exactly when you will get sixpack abs if you are cutting and your projected weight if you are bulking. Last but not least, the most requested feature is finally available in this new meal planner – the ability to print your meal plan :) Give my third generation free custom fitness meal planner a try!

About Scooby

I got a late start in fitness, I was one of those awkward, lanky, clumsy kids who always got picked last when choosing teams in PE class – not athletic in the slightest. I really didn’t do anything fitness wise till I was 21 and started lifting weights. After starting to lift weights, a wonderful thing happened. My confidence and self-esteem skyrocketed and I wasn’t painfully shy any more. With my newfound strength and confidence I discovered that I actually liked sports! Although I completely lack natural athletic ability, I found that I could get better with practice.
