Frequently Asked Questions:

How much space do I need?

If you have enough space to lay down on the ground with a bit of space on every side of you, you should be able to manage.

Do I need to buy equipment?

Although it is not absolutely necessary, it is strongly recommended that you have at least a few inexpensive basic pieces of equipment.  Which equipment would be best for you to start with will depend your current fitness level and goals. After you sign up, you will be asked what equipment you have already and given recommendations on what to get. The more equipment you have, the more variety you will have in your workouts. Most of the equipment we use in our program design will cost less than $30 per item. Check out our equipment page to get an idea and maybe order some stuff.

What's the difference between this and all the free content online?

There are three main components to fitness coaching: assessment, program design and exercise technique.  Without proper assessment, there is really no way of knowing if the program is right for you. Without proper program design, you won't get predictable adaptations. Without proper exercise technique, you may not work the intended muscles and you will increase your chances of injury. We are not in the business of putting out random workout videos for complete strangers to watch. We are in the business of providing individuals with optimal results according to their personal goals.  Think of it this way: If you wanted to get better at playing a sport, you could watch your favorite athlete on TV and try to mimmic them (I can't say I haven't done this myself) or you could hire an experienced professional coach with a proven method to improve your performance who will guide you step by step.

How much time do I need to commit?

The core of most peoples regimen will be approximately 30-35 min. per day. Beyond that, it can vary depending on your needs and goals. For example: a client may have a flexibility issue that they want to work on and the coach might add a short stretching routine to their workout, making the total duration 40 min. A client may want to do a resistance workout and do some cardio on the same day. Maybe a client is traveling and is given a short 15-20 min. workout they can do in a hotel room with no equipment. There are too many variables to list.  Also, you have the flexibility to adjust the workout regimen if you want to incorporate other activities like hiking, tennis, cycling or whatever your thing is. Although we can adjust the workout to fit almost any schedule, keep in mind that the American Heart Association and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recommends 150 min. of moderate activity or 75 min. of high intensity activity per week for adults. If you are a beginner, it's ok to start with less and build up over time, but if you simply can't make the time, you may have some lifestyle issues you need to sort out before expecting to achieve your ultimate fitness goals.

How long will it take me to see results?

Well, it's complicated. How well have you stuck to your workout schedule? What's your food/beverage intake been like lately? How much quality sleep are you getting per night? What specific results are you referring to? Positive changes will begin almost immediately after beginning an exercise regimen and will continue as long as you keep treating your body right. Your coach will help you with proper goal setting strategies  and expectations. Just remember to stay realistic. If your goal is to improve shoulder mobility, it might take an hour. If your goal is to lose 50lbs, it might take longer than that. Whatever your journey is, we will do our best to support you while providing the safest most effective workouts possible.

What if I need to stop training?

Billing is automatic and monthly. There are no term contracts. You can self-cancel in the app. As long as you cancel before your monthly charge, you will not be charged. Once your monthly charge goes through, there are no refunds. Before cancelling, you may want to communicate with your trainer to see if there is a way to modify your training regimen so that you might continue exercising and don't lose hard earned results.
