Frequently Asked Questions
What is included in a program purchase?
A customized meal plan tailored to your dietary preferences, a set of resistance bands that you will need for the workouts, videos and written descriptions of every workout will be included in a 6 and 12 week program purchase. What is not included and is required are a few sets of dumbbells, I would recommend starting with 5, 8 and 10 pounds until you get stronger. If you are seasoned at working out then I would suggest starting with 10, 15 and 20 pound weights. You will also need a yoga mat and a food scale that measures grams. A weight bench is not required however is a good altnernative to chairs and tables.
How is the 12 week program different from the 6 week program?
Both the 6 week and 12 week programs include videos and written descriptions of every workout. Each workout is designed to last 45 minutes or less, obviously more time will be needed if you require frequent and lengthy rest periods, for 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday). The 12 week program has the EXACT same workouts for the first 6 weeks as the 6 week program with an additional 6 weeks of different and more intense exercises added on. If you plan to start with the 6 week program and then might be interested in the 12 week program I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing the 12 week program as the first 6 weeks are the same in both programs.
How are the 6 week CHALLENGES different from the 6 and 12 week PROGRAMS?
When you purchase a 6 or 12 week program, there isn't a specific start or end date. These programs are self paced and once you purchase them you will have access to them forever so essentially you can start over as many times as you need/want to. When you join a challenge, there is a start and an end date, after the end date you will not have access to the challenge anymore. A meal plan is included in the challenge purchase HOWEVER the resistance bands are NOT INCLUDED. Before photos, progress photos and after photos ARE REQUIRED as there is a cash prize for first, second and third place overall body transformations. These photos will not be posted to social media or any websites without signed consent and faces and major tattoos will always be blurred out. HOWEVER, if you happen to be a first, second or third place winner, it would be greatly appreciated if you allowed photos to be posted as this is a challenge and everyone wants to see the winner who won the cash! If you do not grant permission to have before and after photos posted another winner may be chosen.
What does the meal plan consist of?
The meal plan is tailored to your dietary preferences. After you purchase a program and you make an account with Wild Fitness, LLC, you will have access to the "Members Only" page where you will have to fill out a "Meal Plan" form. Once I receive your completed form I will formulate your daily calories and macronutrients. Macronutrients are a group of 3 major nutrients that are found in our everyday foods that give us the most energy. The 3 major macronutrients are Carbs, Fat, and Protein. These will always be measured in grams, that is why a food scale is required. Along with counting your daily macronutrients you will also be counting your daily caloric intake. The only way to lose weight is to always be in a calorie deficit. There is no way around this!
What kind of condiments can I use with my meal plan?
Use any and all spices! Garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, use them all! Your food does not and should not taste bland. Feel free to use lemon juice, yellow mustard and Franks Red Hot sauce! Ketchup and barbeque sauces are not your friends!
When can I have a cheat meal?
Let's not call it a "cheat" meal but rather a "treat" meal. I would HIGHLY recommend sticking to your meal plan for the first 3 weeks, do not incorporate a "treat" meal into your day until after your 3 week check in progress photos are taken. After that you can treat yourself to your favorite meal. TREAT MEAL, NOT TREAT DAY. DO NOT skip your small meals throughout the day to save your calories for your treat meal. Do not starve yourself that day because you are planning to have an "off plan" meal. Drink a lot of water before your meal and after your meal. If going to a restaurant, always look up the menu ahead of time so you know what healthy options you have. Make sure you do a leg exercise the next day, even if it means switching exercise days. Legs are our largest muscles and require the most effort to exercise therefore burn the most calories. PLEASE KEEP ONE THING IN MIND ALWAYS - Remember that you are human. If you slip off your meal plan then just hop back on it the next day and do your best. Do not beat yourself up and guilt yourself. This is a lifestyle change and it is going to be hard.
Can I drink alcohol while on one of your programs?
The fastest way to see results is to solely stick to your meal plan which does not include alcohol. HOWEVER, you are human and you do need to enjoy life and attend special occasions, dinners, etc. I would recommend that you do not drink during these programs but if you are going to enjoy an alcoholic beverage enjoy it in moderation. Drink 1 full glass of water for every alcoholic beverage consumed. DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT skip out on your meals throughout the day to try and "save" and drink your calories. Continue with your small meals during the day. As wine can have its health benefits please keep in mind that sugar can stay in our systems and have the same effect that salt does, you may be swollen and have excess water weight the day after you drink.
How much water should I be drinking everyday?
One gallon. Yes, one gallon of water everyday. I suggest buying a cheap one gallon water jug off of Amazon that has the motivational times on it. Statistics have proven time and time again that drinking one gallon of water a day does decrease bloat and rids our systems of toxins that are the main cause of bloat. Drinking a lot of water can also curb your appetite, so DRINK, DRINK, DRINK! Add strawberries, cucumbers, mint, lemon, whatever you have to add to make it flavorful and tolerable!
Should I be taking any supplements?
While supplements are not required, they can be helpful for most people. If you are going to take any supplements please do your research and ALWAYS consult with your physician prior to taking.
Can I share my log in information with my friends?
Please do not share your account information with anyone. These programs are designed to work with BOTH nutrition and exercise and the nutrition plan is specifically made for YOU ONLY based on your physiological features therefore your meal plan will not work with anyone else.
How are you different from a regular gym trainer?
My programs are designed to be done in your home environment with little equipment needed. You will learn that you can tone up and lose weight without the cost of a gym membership fee and without all of the heavy equipment and machines. The same results that come out of a gym can also be achieved with dumbbells, resistance bands and your body weight while in the comfort of your home.
What do I do when I complete the program?
Once you complete one of the 6 or 12 week programs start all over again and use heavier weights and resistance with the bands. The resistance bands are designed so you can double or triple up on them to add more weight to your workout! Always keep an eye out for my pop up challenges that will have cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall body transformations! By the end of a program you should be very familiar and comfortable with how to count your macronutrients and calories and what foods you can substitute that have equal or similar nutritional value. These programs are designed to teach you how to maintain a healthy lifestyle with exercise and nutrition so you can sustain it long it term!
Are progress pictures required?
While progress photos are not required they are strongly encouraged. This is so you can see your progress when they are side by side. You do not need to send these into me unless you email me requesting accountability through me. If you do take photos and you would like to share I would love to see them! Photos will not be posted to social media or this website without your consent and faces will always be blurred out and names will not be used.
