Q Who are the programs recommended for?
Q The effect of hormones?
A: Humans bodies are influx. You're brain maintains balance and does this in various ways including your endocrine systems. The endocrine system will sends and receive signals and releases certain hormones into your system as needed, like testosterone. Unfortunately we start to decline from around middle age, sadly sometimes sooner.
Q How does it work?
The program has been optimised around improving your Metabolism, Enzyme & Hormones by monitoring you. We know however environment, genetics, stress, bio availability of food, movement are all essential in maintaining health. Our programs ensure you hit a specific set of macro and micro nutrients from eating. When exercising we maximise what is know as time under tension when moving weights to build and maintain muscle and bone strength with minimal impact and time.
If you come on a bootcamp then you will benefit from various expert knowledge in respective fields... apart from nutrition and exercise there are things such as meditation, art and massage that may help you control and element stress... Plus as you're in The Vosges region of France (one of the best environmental places in Europe with its rolling hills and rural nature...) you'll breath in t fresh air and swim in woodland fishing lakes.
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..
