FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can anyone participate in this program? How do I choose the right one?
Yes! I have created this program with both safety and effectiveness in mind. I have spent the last 15 years working one-on-one with every type of client; both males and females, beginners, athletes, golfers (needing sport specific training), every age (13-85 years old), and of course the person just looking to feel fitter and healthier! My background is extensive in both injury prevention and post injury rehab. With that in mind, I have created an extensive library of exercises with accompanying in-depth explanation videos that will cover everything from form, breathing, tempo and proper execution. I want you to feel good knowing everything to keep you safe and push you hard will be at your fingertips during your workouts! You can be brand new to working out and slowly work yourself into new and exciting habits or you can be an advanced workout maverick and find new exercises that will challenge your body and mind! I can’t wait to hear about all of your new challenges and progress, this is an exciting time!
Can I try it for free before committing?
Absolutely! We offer free 7 days with access to all exclusive content. Workouts, food menus and additional health and fitness tips are all included!
How long are the workouts?
You will have the option to choose between 30 and 45-minute workouts. The difference will be the number of exercises for that day. If you are looking for a 30-minute workout, then you will be performing 8 exercises for that day. If you have more time and want to work out for 45 minutes, there will be an additional 4 exercises that you will perform that day. The additional exercises will vary from day to day and will include exercises for shoulder and low back health and stability, additional core movements or it may be something like a glute-focused day! The workouts routines are constantly changing while still allowing you to get better at each exercise. In order to improve it’s important to work in the same movements so you can see your progress in both execution and stability.
How many days a week do I work out?
That is completely up to you and your schedule and needs! I will provide 3 workouts a week and you can fit them in whenever you can during the week. Some people like to workout early in the morning to get it done, while others perform better at night once the kids are in bed and the day is winding down. I’ve worked with people who love to get it done on their lunch break! The most important thing is you find the time to get a great workout 2 or 3 times a week. This program was created to be mindful that not everyone has the desire or ability to workout hours every day. We have obligations, families, work and everything else that goes into our busy days. I want you to feel strong enough to enjoy your life and whatever makes you happy! With that in mind, I want you to workout 2-3 times a week with the provided routines and if you can find the time to get a walk, swim, time to play with the kids or hike in that’s all bonus!
Do you do the same workouts as us?
Heck yes!!! All of the exercises you will do within this program were first done by me, then broken down to every minuscule cue and detail, then performed on clients for the past 16 years and then I also added modifications as well! I have done every exercise and routine you’ll see in this program and I still do! Look for my live workouts so we can work out together as well!
Do I need to add in a ton of cardio?
All of the workout routines are designed to be strength focused and cardiorespiratory assisted. The harder your muscles work, the harder your heart has to work to pump blood into those muscles. You will feel your heart rate rise and fall during your workouts, which is great. Strength training will give you energy, boost your metabolism and it will help you burn calories even after you’re done! A stronger muscle has more potential to do everything better. It’s capable of generating more power, building up more energy, and taking pressure off your joints and connective tissues. Let’s get the best of all worlds and train for strength while adding in intervals of heart pumping movements! Of course, keep moving every chance you get, take walks, swim, hike, bike run- anything that boosts your mood and keeps you active and healthy is awesome! And don’t forget strength training will make you leaner and fitter, not big and bulky!
What kind of results can I expect?
Great question and different for every person! Some people will come to this program looking to get stronger. Some will come looking for motivation and support. Some will be excited to learn all about each exercise and how to do them perfectly to avoid injury. Some will start and just want to watch the demo videos and not have to think about anything but the workout. Every single person is welcome and you have the opportunity to find exactly what you’re looking for! You will feel stronger and notice things in your everyday life getting easier. You will have the ability to connect with me and other people to help you feel motivated and I want you to feel confident to share your amazing progress with us. Pushing yourself and eating well will help you to change your body composition. You will feel accomplished when you’ve completed these workouts. I am so excited for so many changes to happen for you!
What are the meals like?
Nutrient dense food is very important. No matter how much or how hard you work out, you will NOT be able to overcome the lack of proper nutrition. After all, what is the point of taking all these great steps to push yourself physically, just to sabotage it with food choices that are counter-active to your particular goals? If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that there are so many body types out there that all have different dietary requirements and thrive on different strategies, and there is not just one magic meal plan for every single one of us. I will be providing an easy, clean meal plan that you are more than welcome to tweak to support your needs and likes. It will include 3 meals and 2 snacks a day for 5 days a week of simple, clean and tasty recipes! We also strive to help meal prep for the week for all of us that are super busy. The meals are how I eat every day, and they can be modified to suit any of your dietary requirements!
“I’ve been training with Kristin since April 2006. It has provided tremendous heath benefits by sticking to a proven, consistent workout schedule. Prior to her workouts, I just couldn’t find the will, nor energy, to maintain an exercise schedule. While always having good intentions in the morning, all too often I found that after a 10-hour+ stressful workday I was in no mood for fighting the crowds at a corporate, membership-based gym. After work, I was far more likely to find myself on a bar stool rather than completing a workout.
Kristin’s program changed this self-defeating cycle. By putting the workouts on my calendar, I have been able keep up with a long-term beneficial exercise schedule. The 30-minute sessions are exhausting, but after only 30 (or 45) minutes they are over and I have more energy and a better attitude. Kristin’s cueing and demonstration videos have been wonderful, making me feel like I can tailor the workouts to my ability and specific needs. I am receiving great nutritional advice as well, which combined with the workouts has led to a far more healthy lifestyle. I will turn 65 this summer, and I honestly feel that I am in better shape and overall health than I was at 40.
Give it a try. You know you have been looking for a workout program you could stick with. I was hooked after the free 7 days. You will not regret it!“
