We’ve had a ton of interest in our next group coaching cohort! Today we answer the most common questions about the group program.
If you missed it, read here to learn all about why two people can both lose weight, but only one keeps it off. Plus we make a great coaching offer.
Q: Will there be exercise programming, or guidance?
A: Exercise is an important component of long term weight loss. However research and experience tells us that the exact kind of exercise is often not that important. We will both provide an exercise routine to follow if you like it, but if you want to do your own thing, that is fine and we’ll certainly help you with principles. That said, individualized programs would be cost prohibitive.
Q: How does the group keep in contact?
A: Everyone will be assigned to a small “super friends group”, and everyone will have access to the whole cohort, all on Facebook. There will be daily interaction with your super friends group on FB, but if super friends choose, they can contact each other any means that supports them. You will be getting an email each Monday from your coach, and of course you’ll have daily access to your coach through FB and emails.
Q: I live in a different country, food availability is different, is this okay?
A: We coach people from all over the world and location doesn’t matter much. We coach principles and habits, so we won’t be giving specific food recommendations either, what you have available will work just fine.
Q: Will you give me a meal plan?
A: No meal plans. They aren’t sustainable and our focus is on habits that last you a lifetime, you’ll thank us for this in the end.
Q: How much weight will I lose?
A: That varies from person to person. Average weight loss with our system is 0.5 – 1 pound per week. Since we focus on changing habits the weight loss isn’t usually as fast as if a person did a diet, but it is permanent. We’ve had people lose around a pound a week for a year, and we’ve had people not lose anything for a month. It really isn’t about the weight loss first, it is about habits that will assure your success for a lifetime. So some people have more habits to change than others to see the scale move, so the scale starts moving right away for some participants, but others need to get a few habits in place before things get going. Sooner or later though, mastering these habits produces lasting weight loss.
Q: I’m a competitive athlete and train very hard, will this work with me?
A: Absolutely. We have Olympians, we have athletes at every level, and they all master habits that help them succeed. We may need to help you individualize more, but the basic habits apply to everyone.
Q: Is twenty four weeks enough time to master the habits, and will twelve habits be enough?
A: We work on a habit for two weeks before going onto the next one. This is in fact not enough time for most to master it. This is enough time to master it enough to be able to do it with relative ease though. So to make the habit truly stick you need to keep practicing them for around two months on average. As for whether the twelve habits are enough is individual, for some yes, for some there are other habits to work on as well. We’ll be here to help those people too.
Q: How long is the program?
A: Currently 24 weeks. If there is interest in a longer program with other habits, we’ll consider it.
Q: How much time will this take?
A: The coaching will be a few minutes a day. The habits that you work on will need some attention and really it would be impossible to say how much time you’ll be spending. However you will be working on habits that will integrate into your life, so in no time I’d suggest that you won’t spend much extra time on them.
Q: I have a medical condition and dietary restrictions, is this right for me?
A: Absolutely. We don’t prescribe diet at all actually, that is up to your medical team. We do however have an RD that understands those issues and we accommodate them. Our system works with any diet actually.
Q: I’ve done another popular group coaching program, how is yours unique?
A: The owners of this company have both been coaches for a popular coaching program and in effort to be more effective we’ve made things different. For one we teach you how to master habits. You can apply this to any habit, it is science based, other programs only give you habits to do assuming that if you do them for enough time that you’ll form a habit. We know this not to be true, and our program equips you to make them stick.
Also we provide daily support and structure things in such a way to maximize it. You’ll be a part of a super friends group, in which you will have daily contact to be supportive and to get the support you need. You won’t ever be discouraged from emailing your coach either, as some companies do. In short you’ll always have what you need to succeed.
Plus we are collaborative, not competitive. We won’t be giving cash awards for a modeling contest. We will be giving cash awards for the most consistent habit builder and the most supportive person. That’s the values that matter to us, not some photo contest that we can use to sell our program.
With us the habits get scaled for you, in fact we teach you how to effectively do this yourself for any habit. Success is assured when the challenge is appropriate. Other programs only give you the habit to work on and that is it.
Q: What happens after the six months?
A: You may be successful enough already, however you can keep going if you like working on new habits, or you can join our one on one coaching.
Q: How customized is the group program for individuals?
A: You will work on the same habits as the group, however you’ll always adjust the habit to fit your ability and needs. At times you’ll have the habit down pat, at that time you’ll be helping your teammates master the habit, and you’ll work with the habit formation process, furthering your own abilities.
