I find it amazing how sometimes words can be misinterpreted and also grow along the road with a whole new meaning. I have received quite a lot of emails asking if I am still accepting orders at AS LONG AS YOU SEE THE “ADD TO CART” button by an item, then it is in stock and you can order it. Therefore, there is no need to send me an email asking if items are available for purchase. If it does not say SOLD OUT, then it is still in stock.

In Sept 2017, I posted a notice on the Home Page of informing everyone about my Phase 1 in preparation for me to semi-retire and eventually fully retire. (if that is ever going to be possible.) To read that original posting explanation CLICK HERE.

Today I am informing you that my inventory of Mike Mentzer books is getting very low and Heavy Duty II: Mind and Body is now completely sold out. If you want copies of Heavy Duty 1 (white cover) or Muscles in Minutes, then I strongly urge you to get your orders placed asap. I have no plans to reprint those 3 older books immediately or possibly not at all.

All Copyrights will still be owned by me through Mentzer-Sharkey Enterprises, Inc. and nobody else has the right to reprint or post the books in any form of media. I will still be the legal owner and Successor to ALL RIGHTS.

The 2 newer books published by McGraw-Hill Publishing are still available and will remain in print by that company. Namely, “High-Intensity Training the Mike Mentzer Way” (a must-have) of Mike’s FINAL written book, and also “The Wisdom of Mike Mentzer” book.

The clothing and DVDs are still in stock, and in fact, I have just received another order of the shirts which seem to just fly out of here.

Presently, the online Heavy Duty Consultations are still being accepted as well, and this will probably be available for quite a while.

There are other phases of my work that still remain, and it will probably take quite some time before I can actually say I am retired. No, I do not have a given date for this, but I have decided to no longer work 6 days a week as of this month.

This has been a very difficult decision for me to come to, but after 18 years at the helm of the Mentzer Legacy at, it is passed the time for me to slow down. I’ve made so many awesome friends in all of you and can only say that YOU have been my inspiration, plus (of course) my passion and loyalty for Mike’s and Ray’s teachings and all that we shared together.

Thank you,

Joanne Sharkey, CEO/President
