Some thoughts and discussions from me.
Some thoughts and discussions from me.
One concern I hear fairly often from prospective clients regarding my Lean Body training & nutrition boot camp is that they have a tendency to lose that initial excitement, and then give up or burn out mid-way through programs.
Knowing this, I have set up multiple layers of accountability and support in this program to keep my clients’ commitment and adherence level the same in Week 6 as it is on Day 1.
I’m currently working with 45+ women in my Lean Body training and nutrition boot camp, and continue to be blown away with their progress and participation level to remain high in weeks 4 and 5 in the program.
Many of these women had initial concerns before starting this program:
Would the workouts be feasible for their travel schedule – or their limited equipment?
Would they be able to still participate in their group class?
Would they get their return on investment?
and so on…
I get it! There are a lot of doubts and concerns with any new investment. So, today I wanted to take a minute and share some frequently asked questions from those who have signed up and participated in this program — that you might have, too.
Can I do this program if I work out at home?
Yes. I actually offer two different options for the training component of this program: the at-home track and my in-the-gym track. The at home track only required dumbbells, while the in-the-gym track uses equipment like cables, barbells, and the smith machine.
How long do the workouts take?
The strength workouts take about 45 minutes, and the conditioning and HIIT will cost you 30 minutes or less.
I’m constantly hungry all day long; will this program help?
One of the first things I hear from my clients in this program is that they’re satiety levels are leveling out, meaning they’re feeling fuller and more satisfied from their meals, even while losing body fat. The nutrient timing practices we’ll put into place in this program help to decrease all day hunger and increase meal satisfaction.
I have a tendency to become obsessive when I track macros – is this required?
No. I offer mustom macronutrients with periodic adjustments, but some of you will be using my guidelines method or keeping track of servings of macronutrients, while others will be keeping track of macronutrient grams. This is dependent on your preference, lifestyle, and personality, as tracking numbers comes easily to some, while leading to obsession for others.
What if I’m breastfeeding?
I have worked (currently work) with many women who are breastfeeding. I take this into consideration when determining your specific nutrition guidelines to make sure it doesn’t affect milk supply.
I’m traveling the first week of the program – will I still be able to do it?
As long as you’ll have access to dumbbells when you’re traveling, you can just use the at-home track that week.
Can I still go to my boot camp/barre/yoga classes?
It depends. Ideally, I’d like you to complete the program as written for best results. However, if you sub a conditioning-style class for a conditioning workout every once in a while, that’s fine. If the yoga classes are more gentle, these can definitely fit in.
I’m a vegetarian; will this program still work for me?
While we make increase your protein from where it’s at now (and maybe not,) your nutrition and macros are customized to you, so this isn’t a problem, and I’ll take this into consideration when figuring your macros/guidelines.
I’m a picky eater, and don’t eat certain things; is this OK?
One of my core principles is that I don’t tell you what you can and cannot eat. While I will provide sample menus to give you meal ideas and inspiration, no food is ever placed off limits or deemed as “bad,” nor will I ever require you to eat anything.
I hope that was helpful and answered some questions that you might have about the program — as of this morning, there are only three spots left, and I’ll be closing registration this weekend or when those spots are filled. You can learn more, contact me, and sign up here.
After signing up, I’ll send out our ‘getting started’ packet on the 6th with all of our information and materials to get started on the 13th!
