Do I need equipment?
No special equipment is needed. A mat is nice but putting a towel down on a carpeted floor will work just fine.
Is it online?
Yes! The program is 100% online. All you need is a device or computer with internet capabilities and an internet connection.
How will you decide where I start?
I am starting everyone at zero to best educate you on the things you need to do to move through the program most effectively. From there you will be given options to make workouts easier or more challenging depending on how you are feeling that day.
How much connection and support do I get from you?
So much! You will have 30min one-on-one coaching calls with me once a month for the full year of the program. I also request that you fill in progress reports once a week that are sent directly to me. This is done through a form right on the website where the program lives. The participants who are thriving in the program use me, and my 20 years of knowledge, actively as a resource. How this looks is that they keep me updated with how they are doing and they let me know what they need. I usually respond within 24 hours and often create videos to answer questions.
How do know know when I can move to the next level?
You will automatically have access to more challenging workouts every 6 weeks and most people will move on at this schedule. The progress reports should help me identify cases where participants need to spend more time before moving ahead. Again, check in with me and I will help advise you what is best for your body.
Will the programing be personalized?
Everyone is following the same general guidelines with the programming but personalization is possible through the channel I described above. I am able to answer questions and offer modifications where needed. I will also always do my best to help participants trouble shoot their own specific challenges.
Does the program include one on one coaching or personal training?
You get unlimited access to me via email and I usually respond within 24 hours. You will also receive 30min one-on-one coaching calls with me once a month for the full year of the program. So far this has worked for all participants. If you would like additional support that is something we could discuss.
What if I want to move ahead in the program faster?
Awesome! I recommend following the program as written and if you find you are able to do additional exercise I will encourage you to find other forms of exercise that you love to do and begin incorporating that intelligently. This is something we can figure out together if the time comes!
What if I want to do other forms of exercise in addition to this program?
Great! I encourage this and in many cases this will be important to incorporate. The main goal of this program is to integrate regular exercise into a healthy lifestyle and build endurance slowly over time. I expect that by the time this program finishes participants will have been able to slowly begin including things that they used to love to do for exercise prior to their health or fitness setbacks. Let’s get you back to doing the things you love with the people that you love!
What happens if the workouts are too challenging?
Ask me for help! As I have mentioned above – modifications exist in the videos and if more modifications are needed I am more than happy to supply them. One of my biggest gifts as a fitness professional is my creativity – I love when I get to use it.
Will there be nutrition coaching?
Nutrition coaching is not included in the cost of the program but participants can reach out to me to set up a complimentary 30 minute nutritional consultation (See Above) and we can create the correct plan for their needs.
