You'll subscribe to 1 of 3 of workout bundles based on equipment and where you're working out (Full Gym, Home Gym, or DB-Only). Each bundle has 3-4 programs to choose from that take 30, 45, 60, or 75 min. Pick your bundle, pick your program, and then get to lifting (and loving) life.
What gym equipment do I need?
To follow our DB Programs, you'll need at least 2-3 pairs of dumbbells (pairs of light, medium, and heavier for you would be great. Ex: 10s, 20s, 30s), resistance bands, and a bench. Sorry but not actually sorry if you get REALLY strong and quickly have to buy more dumbbells (:
How many workout days are programmed each week?
Remember those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books from when you were a kid? Our workout programs are just like that. 3-Day programs are full body sessions, 4-Day programs are upper/lower splits. You'll also have the option to stack zone 2 and zone 5 cardio sessions on top of programs (if you want to)
How long will workouts take?
The best workouts are the ones you can consistently do and get done. 3-Day & 4-Day DB Physique = 60 min workouts. DB Quickie = 30 min. You also have the option to complete programmed zone 2 and zone 5 cardio sessions (~30-45 min) on top of programming.
What if I'm new to lifting?
30-min DB Quickie is for you! Shorter workouts = less movements to learn, so workouts will likely seem less overwhelming. Once you’re feeling a little more comfortable, you could consider switching to one of our 60-min programs.
What if I don't know how to perform a movement or lift?
No sweat! We have over 600+ movement demo videos uploaded into our app. Each workout section will have movement tips + videos so you'll know exactly how to perform the workout and each lift. You can also get instant feedback from the Paragon team if you post a form check video!
What if I'm short on time and won't be able to finish a workout?
If in a busy season of life, DB Quickie since workouts are just 30 min. Alternatively, you could just prioritize completing parts A/B or A/B/C of your workout, as those are typically the repeating movements (aka the "meat and potatoes" of the programming).
Does Paragon include support for Mommas during Pregnancy / Postpartum?
Of course! All Paragon members will have access to our Pregnancy/PP Movement Modification & Substitution Guide. We also regularly share educational content and resources from @TheMintPRJCT. Members also get a discount if they wish to purchase Mint PRJCT's Birth-Back-to-Gym program.
Does Paragon include Nutrition Coaching / Nutrition Guidance?
It does not. Your subscription grants you access to our workouts + coaching support and guidance from the Paragon team. We love answering nutrition questions, but if seeking 1:1 coaching, that service typically runs $150-300/mo and isn't included in our super affordable $49 subscription.
What if I love long distance running and/or riding my Peloton?
Any of our 3 Day Programs just became your BFF, as workouts = full body. You also might love our 45-Min Physique program. Feel free to follow your own cardio or race program, hop in Peloton classes, OR peep our free zone 2 / zone 2 cardio add-on program that stacks perfectly with our workouts.
What if I have nutrition, fitness, and/or programming questions?
Post them in the App Chat or Community group, we always give detailed coaching responses! Paragon is an evidence-based, education-focused company. We believe that education = empowerment. It’s a lot easier to DO something when you understand the “how" or “why” behind WHY you’re doing something.
