Q: DO I NEED TO JOIN A GYM TO DO THE FITNESS PROGRAMS?
You do not need a gym membership, although it is highly recommended as there are usually less variables at home that will enable you to progress and add to the challenge, it is also much easier to get distracted, however custom programs are completely customised to your circumstances and goals and can be adapted around home equipment.
Q: ARE RESULTS GUARANTEED?
I will provide you with the structure of your workouts, the information, the tips, guidance and support, but I cannot force you to commit to the plan or working out. 'you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink it' . If you do follow the workouts and nutritional advice provided then you will see results, please note results vary from person to person depending on effort, genetics and a variety of other factors.
Q. HOW WILL I RECEIVE THE WORKOUTS?
You will receive the programs via the members portal on my website, or via the android app, no download required however there is the option to print the program if required, as a copy will be provided via Google sheets.
Q. WILL I NEED TO BUY FITNESS EQUIPMENT?
You do not need to purchase any equipment to do my programs if you are training at the gym however if you are training from home I do recommend buying some basic equipment such as moderately weighted dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells and/or resistance bands, which will enable you to add resistance and progress throughout the program. If You are training from home then custom coaching is your best option and the start up forms will ask you about your equipment and your program will be written with this in mind.
Q: ARE THERE DIFFERENT LEVELS TO THE PROGRAMS OR IS IT FOR ALL FITNESS LEVELS?
The Programs are for all fitness levels. They Provide different levels of progression so you can use more or less resistance or bodyweight if required.
Q: I'M STRUGGLING TO STAY MOTIVATED, HELP?
Starting a new program can be exciting at first but sometimes this excitement and motivation can wear off after a few weeks, this is why I encourage you to rely on self discipline rather than motivation and think about why you started this journey, I post inspirational tips and guidance on my blogs to help you stay focused and achieve your goals. I know that you can do this and I'm here to help you every step of the way, I'm just a click of a button away. Feel free to message me if your struggling.
Q. I’M NOT LOSING WEIGHT, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?
Fat loss doesn't always show up on the scales as you could be making positive gains in muscle mass, which will help you to torch more fat in the long run. If you are following the program and nutritional advice then your body will change, your progress photos are very important for this reason, as well as taking measurements. Make sure you complete the client check in each week so I can review your progress and most importantly make sure that you are in a Calorie Deficit.
Q: I WANT TO DO MORE WHAT CAN I DO?
Some people progress and recover at quicker rate than others and if you want to increase your weights to increase your intensity please go ahead, however it is advised to stay in the rep recommendations for the program to achieve the results it is designed for. Remember that your last two reps should be performed until fatigue but not until failure. If you want to increase your Cardio feel free but bear in mind this may impair your recovery and you must not neglect your programmed exercises to do more Cardio. They are programmed for a reason and that is to help you reach your goals in the most efficient, beneficial and timely manner.
Q: ARE THE PROGRAMS SUITABLE FOR MALES AND FEMALES?
My Programs are designed for both men and women as they are completely tailored to the individual.
Q: HOW IMPORTANT IS DYNAMIC AND STATIC STRETCHING AND DO I NEED TO DO IT?
Stretching is very important to prevent injury and DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) as well as muscle tightness and reduced flexibility. I encourage you to warm-up with dynamic stretches and cool-down with static stretches during each training session to maximize your performance, improve mobility, range of motion (ROM), reduce DOMS and risk of injury.
Q: MY PROGRAM ISNT LOADING, WHAT DO I DO?
Due to the nature of the internet I cant always promise a stable internet connection, if your program isn't loading it is most likely due to connection issues on your mobile device or the area you are trying to access it from. If Your Program and online links aren't loading feel free to access the program via google sheets which is available offline or print it for your offline convenience.
