FAQs
Are the workouts sent out daily?
The workouts are published every Sunday for the upcoming week! This gives our clients the flexibility of moving sessions around for that week while staying on track for that current cycle!
What if I can’t workout on the assigned day?
No problem! You can move that workout to a different day and still record all your stats as usual!
Do I have to wait to start at the beginning of a cycle?
No you don't. It’s best to jump in when you sign up! We understand everyone may not start at the beginning of a cycle, however, our programs are all periodized and based on progression so you will benefit from starting as soon as you join.
