I realise that there are lots of programs, weight loss and training solutions on the market and at this time of year there is a huge interest in them with the holidays ending and school starting again soon.
Hopefully these few points will share with you what you can expect from my program and how I think they can help you achieve your goals this year.
I think everyone should set firm goals when it comes to their health and fitness. Being strong fit and healthy makes such a positive difference to your life but I know that sometimes starting the journey can be daunting with so much conflicting advice out there.
I believe in eating real food, training regularly and keeping things as simple as possible. It’s not rocket science but you do need to follow some basic principles and rules if you want to be successful long term. My programs are designed to teach you these in a way that you can integrate into your everyday life forever.
I understand It can also be intimidating and scary stepping out of your comfort zone which is why my programs offer real support (not an auto response email or frequently asked questions) and walk you through EVERY meal and EVERY training session EVERY DAY throughout your 8 weeks.
Is 2015 going to be the year that you finally take control and lose those unwanted kilos, or maybe it’s the year when you commit to taking your training to the next level and getting back those abs or that pre-baby body?
Whatever your goals for this year, here is how my programs can help you reach them….
What is the difference between #NOEXCUSES and #NOLIMITS (and how much are they)?
The programs are both 8 weeks in length. #NOEXCUSES is designed specifically for weight loss and #NOLIMITS for people that are already used to training hard in the gym and want to shred down. To complete #NOLIMITS successfully you really need access to a commercial gym or have a fantastic home gym.
The most popular program by far is #NOEXCUSES as most people want to lose a few kilos (or maybe a lot) but more importantly learn how this is done sustainably (which is why I loathe fad diets as they cannot be implemented long term and whilst you might lose a few kilos short term, they can do real damage to your metabolism). Both programs are designed for busy people, the food is simple and easy to prepare and the workouts practical and effective.
The programs are very different and they are designed to achieve different goals. As a rule if you are used to training hard, have less than 5kg to lose and are ready for an intense 8 week challenge, choose #NOLIMITS. If you want to lose weight in a sustainable way and train at a moderate level then #NOEXCUSES is for you.
Both programs are priced at $99.95 which includes the 85 page PDF program (delivered via simple download) and membership to my private support groups on Facebook.
Why are the programs 8 weeks long?
I believe that you can learn new habits in 8 weeks and this is long enough for my programs to teach you how to eat and train to sustain your results long term. The 8 weeks is really just the beginning as my goal is to show you a new way of thinking about food and exercise that you never look back from.
What is your approach to nutrition in #NOEXCUSES and #NOLIMITS and what if I have specific food needs?
I believe in eating real food, as fresh as possible and preferably nothing processed that comes in a packet. My programs embrace all food groups but I am big on making sure you are eating the right foods at the right times of day to maximize your results. All the ingredients can be bought at a normal supermarket and with a bit of prep in the weekend all the meals can be cooked in about 5 minutes. If you have specific food needs, we can easily provide you with a list of substitutions so the food plan meets your needs. We have has lots of vegetarians on the programs and people with allergies or a dislike for things like fish! Recipes are provided in the program where needed and you can click here for a sample day of NOLIMITS and here for a sample of #NOEXCUSES.
What is the difference between #NOEXCUSES Home and #NOEXCUSES (Gym version)
Simply, the standard #NOEXCUSES program requires gym access for its 2-3 weights workouts a week. #NOEXCUSES Home can be done completely from home with skipping rope so hand weights (adjustable ones are best) and a fit ball. Other than this the programs are identical.
What kind of training is in the programs?
Both programs include 6 training sessions a week with 1 days rest. #NOEXCUSES has 2-3 weight sessions a week (click here to read why these are so important) and 3-4 cardio sessions and #NOLIMITS has 3-4 weight sessions a week and 2-3 cardio session. The cardio sessions are a mix of HIIT (click here to read more about this type of training) and longer form cardio which can be anything from walking to running. Every weights exercise comes with 2 photos showing you how to complete the exercise and the correct form and tempo.
Do the programs cater for different fitness levels?
Absolutely, #NOEXCUSES is flexible enough for all fitness levels (just ask me in the group if you think you want to make changes) and the home program is perfect if you want to train away from the crowds or struggle to get access to a gym.
How do I access support during my 8 weeks?
Straight after you join you will receive an email from me with an invitation to join my private Facebook group. The groups are amazing and I spend a lot of my day answering questions in the groups. They are also really supportive and have a real sense of community which I love. I always get told by people that have successfully completed my programs that the groups were one of the best parts of the programs that kept them focused and motivated. You receive 10 weeks group access when you join the program which covers your 8 weeks and 2 bonus weeks.
Are there any specific start dates?
I have designed the program so you can start whenever you like, so there are no set start dates. I want to be as inclusive as possible with the program and I understand that everyone has different schedules!
Who am I and what is Team #beachfit?
I am a mum of two young children who became a certified trainer back in 2002 (read my bio here)! Today I get to share with passion for fitness and health with tens of thousands of women all over Australia through my blog and my online training and nutrition programs.
Team #beachfit is my small growing team that today consists of John, my husband who looks after sales & marketing and the totally amazing Ally, who looks after customer service and support. In February I am looking to add another superstar to my team to help me manage the programs and help develop the business, so if you know any amazingly talented qualified personal trainers with a passion for social media, please let me know!
What kind of results have people achieved on the programs?
I love nothing more than see the fantastic results people achieve through my programs (both mentally and physically). Here are just a few of the amazing people who have achieved amazing results through my programs in the past 7 months.
I hope I have explained what to expect from my programs.
