The 4 most frequent questions I get asked about the Program
1. How do I know I'll get enough support with everything being online?
This was the biggest question I faced when creating the online service. Because I insist that Body Transform always provides exactly what you need to learn what to do and then go out and do it.
The good news is that I have come up with a service that provides my knowledge and support in the same step-by-step way that I provide in-person. Let me explain.
The first piece of learning you do is on Nutrition. I send you the nutrition knowledge and all the resources in my first Initial Coaching email. There are 6 steps to go through this material. In this email, I ask you the five most important questions about nutrition, because I need to check that you have understood the material. Once you send your answers back to me I review them, and we can discuss and correct your answers if necessary. Only when I am satisfied you have understood the nutrition knowledge do I send your next Initial Coaching email, which is all about Exercise. This is a 5 step process of learning the 3 different trainings and creating your weekly exercise plan. Again, I will ask 5 questions about the exercise and your plan that will tell me whether you are ‘ready’ to go or not. And again, we can discuss any questions you may have. Only when I’m satisfied that you are ready to begin exercisisng I will send you your third Initial Coaching email, which is all about Goal Setting. And once that is completed, the Initial Coaching is completed, and you can begin with Day 1 of the Program. The knowledge that I present, and process of learning Nutrition, then Exercise, then doing Goal Setting is exactly the same as I work through with one-on-one clients. And because I am checking in with you after each step I ensure you learn what you need to learn.
And once you begin the Program, the support is exactly the same as I have always provided: weekly Motivation Writings and anytime email and phone support.
Whilst there is the obvious restriction of not being there beside you, I am comfortable that this is the very best way that I can provide the knowledge and support you need by email and internet. I would only offer the online program if I believed that I could pass on everything you need – and I beleive that I have.
An obvious advantage of this method is that I can work with you wherever you are, at the time that suits you, and at a significantly lower cost than if you engaged my face-to-face.
2. Is nutrition and motivation really as important as exercise?
Absolutely! You really do need all three aspects to ensure success. Your nutrition must be balanced with the amount and type of exercise that you do. If it is out of balance, you will not get the results as fast as you could, nor will you have the energy to continue with your exercise program. The Body Transform Program puts a lot of emphasis on nutrition; I will teach you how to do it properly, so that you have the knowledge and the confidence to eat in the best possible way. And you know what, it’s easy to do: it’s ‘normal’ food and with a bit of planning you can eat well all the time.
The motivation and mindset is the key factor that allows you to get off to a flying start with your new habits. And most importantly, remaining motivated allows you to continue with the habits. Sufficiently motivated, it’s easy to do. And with constant motivational support, you will be able to do the right things for long enough for change to happen. In many ways, I believe the motivation and support that I provide is the most significant key to all of my clients’ success.
3. Will I be able to exercise if you are not in the gym with me?
Yes. The Body Transform exercise sessions are very straight-forward as well as being hugely effective. I have been teaching them to others without having to be in the gym with them. In our Initial Coaching you will learn the exercising in great detail, and we will go through all the exercise sheets, photos and resource materials. The exercise sessions are fully prescribed right down to each minute of your cardio training and each weight that you lift. I will tell you exactly what to do to this level of detail.
Yes, you will have to learn the exercises for yourself during the first week of your Program. But with all the resources and the education I give you, it is straight-forward. And that is important. Because my goal with Body Transform all along has been to teach others to exercise effectively so that they can do it by themselves, whenever they want, without having to rely on anyone else to be there with them.
Exercise is one of the most natural things for your body. Once you learn amazingly effective exercising and you realise that you can do it on your own, you are in a very powerful place. Once you discover that you can do it yourself, you develop your own internal motivation. And from there, you will always be able to get yourself motivated to exercise. Wait and see what I mean! It happened to me when I learnt these actions in 2001, and it happens to everyone that I work with.
4. Why is the Program 10 weeks and not 12 weeks?
What I have found working personally with my previous clients is that after 10 weeks they have actually done all they need to do. In terms of learning new actions, creating and practicing new habits, and making significant change to their bodies annd their health and fitness. I would say that after 10 weeks there bodies are about the same as after 12 weeks.
Having observed this time and time again, I realised that in fact 10 weeks was a better length of time to run the Program. It means that clients get all the same benefits, and the experience of completion of a goal comes around that much faster. Also, it is important that I am not providing anything more than my clients need (and pay for!) to get what they want done.
Now of course I insisit that the lifestyle I teach you to follow can be maintained for any length of time. So even though the Program finishes after 10 weeks, you will be free to carry on with exactly the same positive and energetic habits. It just means that your initial learning experience will be completed in 10 weeks rather than 12.
5. Am I committed to ongoing payments or anything when I join the Program?
Absolutely not. With Body transform there is no sneaky on-going monthly fee. There is no commitment into the future whatsoever. For the program you have a one-off upfront fee and that is it for ever!
I actually don’t want you to be locked-in to some ongoing membership. What I want is for you to learn nutrition and exercise now, practice it over the next 10 weeks and see how great it feels, and then for the rest of your life you are free to live as fit and healthy as you want. Because you’ll know what to do, and how to do it!
“I hope that helps clarify any questions for you. If there is anything else you need to know, please do ask. Otherwise, order your Program here.
You too can soon begin your very own change and create your own success story. Remember, you don’t have to have all the answers before you begin – you just need a desire to change!”
