This program is designed for anyone looking to improve body composition & physique. This program is progressed monthly, through science-based principles, to maximize body composition & physique change over time! No matter your age or training experience, this program will help you get stronger, leaner, and more conditioned. You will have 24/7 access to us & the WPL Aesthetics Team Community!

This is not your typical physique style program that uses the same exercises & gets boring. This program ensures a well-rounded approach to training every region of the body on a weekly basis and has a large focus on stimulating lean muscle mass growth & fat loss. We balance the need for longer progressions, with keeping the workouts fresh. We vary our primary lifts, accessory work, & conditioning every 3-4 weeks. We also change set & rep schemes every 3-4 weeks. You will manage your fatigue, feel fresher, & break through plateaus with this innovative programming style!

This program is programmed out with 3-4 days per week of lifting, with 1-2 days per week of conditioning work. Each training session takes 45-60 minutes!

Build The Physique You Want
This program is designed to help you unlock your body composition/physique goal! Our science-based, progressive program will give you everything you need to reach your goals. Keep in mind, body composition is all about calories in & calories out. We will help you with the "calories out" portion of that equation. If you handle the "calories in" portion of the equation, your potential is limitless!

FAQs
Who is this program for?
This program is designed for anyone looking to improve their body composition and physique! The program uses higher intensity training methods (shorter rest intervals, circuits/Tabata, full spectrum energy system conditioning) to keep your heart rate high during your training to burn more calories!
Do I have to wait for a new cycle to join?
You can join the program whenever. The programming is progressed monthly but is designed to allow you to hop in at any point. You can adjust your weights/reps accordingly. We can also help you adjust the program when you join, if needed!
How much lifting experience do I need?
You do not need any prior lifting experience! This program is designed for the novice or intermediate person. We pride ourselves on giving great exercise instructions to make sure you understand each exercise and intent behind every part of the programming. We also attach videos for every movement!
How many days a week and how much time is needed for each day?
We program out 5 training sessions a week that typically take 45-60 minutes to complete (from warm up through cool down). This program uses 3-4 lifting days & 1-2 conditioning days per week!
How often do the workouts change?
This is not your typical program that uses the same exercises & gets boring. We balance the need for longer progressions, with keeping the workouts fresh. We program primary lifts for 6-8 wks, while varying our accessory work/conditioning every 3-4 wks. We also change set/rep schemes every 3-4 wks!
What if I don't understand a specific movement or part of the program?
Reach out to us on the convenient messaging feature in the app. We will answer all of your questions ASAP. We love chatting with our athletes and clients!
