Over the past 5 years we have been flooded with so many contradicting opinions on nutrition, training and weight loss through social media, TV and radio. Confused? We're not surprised. The truth is the fundamentals of losing weight and getting in better shape have never changed. Getting to the fitness level and body shape you want is simply about consistent progress in your training, nutrition, and an understanding of your own body. Aim to feel 1% every day and enjoy the process.


Course Syllabus:

  • LESSON 1 -

    How Do You Measure Up?

    With so much conflicting nutrition and fitness information coming from the media, people seem to be more confused than ever about how to maintain their weight, get fit, tone up, and improve their energy. In lesson 1, you will find out why it is so important to eat well and exercise regularly to maintain your physical fitness, mental health and the first step on how to enjoy every step of the process.

  • LESSON 2 -

    Cardiovascular Exercise

    We’ve looked at what fitness means in a practical sense but how do you develop a plan to start? In lesson 2 we will break down one of the most misused types of exercise, Cardio (Cardiovascular exercise). Learn how steady cardio (L.I.S.S.) and high intensity interval training (H.I.I.T) play an important role in your fitness, body shape and overall energy levels.

  • LESSON 3 -

    Understanding Weight Loss & Weight Gain

    The most important factor which determines whether you gain or lose weight is the number of alories you consume on a weekly basis. As the old saying goes “You can’t out train a bad diet.”. In this lesson we look at energy balance, food quality, how these play a vital role in the results you want and why obesity is on the rise worldwide.

  • LESSON 4 -

    Strength Training & Shaping The Body

    “But won’t weight training make me look too bulky?” Strength training is easily the most misunderstood form of exercise over the past 20 years. In this lesson we look at how strength training is the most effective exercise for shaping your body, burning fat and the basics of starting strength.

  • LESSON 5 -

    Understanding Fat Loss And Body Shape

    Fat loss is not just about creating a calorie deficit. If you negatively effect your hormones from either over training or lack of fuel, then you will slow and even stop your fat loss. In this lesson you will learn how to properly manage your diet, priorities, and daily habit to optimise your hormone levels along with the importance fat los plays in body shape.

  • LESSON 6 -

    Controlling Your Body Shape

    In this lesson we piece together what you have learnt so far and how this knowledge will help control your weight, body shape and energy levels long term. We will also look at what changes you need to make to get from higher body fat levels to moderate and lean body fat levels through practical meal planning.

  • LESSON 7 -

    Injury Prevention And Recovery

    Injury prevention is one of the most overlooked and ignored parts of a healthy lifestyle. Most back problems these days are from postural imbalances caused from sedentary lifestyles or poor mobility. In this lesson, we look at the importance of mobility not just for your training and recovery but also for your daily life.

  • LESSON 8 -

    Barriers To Your Results

    Even with the most perfectly designed individual fitness program there are common barriers that can stop people achieving their desired results. In the last lesson of module 1 we look at overcoming stress, fitting fitness into your life and enjoying the whole process.
