Q How does it work?
The program has been optimised around improving your Metabolism, Enzyme & Hormones by monitoring you closely. We do this as we know that the environment, genetics, stress, bio availability of food, movement are all essential in maintaining health and building strength.. Our programs ensure you hit a specific set of macro and micro nutrients from eating and when exercising we use a method called as time under tension. that produces maximum results whist minimise time spend exercising..
Q Why whole foods?
The program is NOT suitable for people who want to eat out every day, cut corners or who don't have access to a kitchen. We understand life is for living and sometimes it's not possible to be 100% but you must be consuming predominately whole food otherwise your body will suffer.
Q: Is the program okay for me if I have injuries?
A: Yes we ensure we check your joint stability before you start and program is tailored to you.. We would always recommend getting approval from your doctor before beginning any exercise routine if you are at all unsure..
Q: What if I've never worked out before?
A: Not a problem. We encourage beginners. The programs are perfect for any level because as fitness levels improve so will the intensity. Program material is simple, short and easy to follow because of the clear communication and simple design.
