Do I have to start training on November 1st?
No, but you will only have from November 1st to December 23 to use your 3 weeks of training sessions (12 boot camp sessions). They will expire after 3 weeks from your first visit or December 23, whichever comes first. Use the scheduling system to reserve your workouts for boot camp.
Do I need to complete an orientation first before I start training? And, when is orienation and follow up measurements?
No, you can begin without having completed an orientation. Our coaches will walk you through the warm-ups and the exercises during camp. As far as an orientation we recommend you attend the one of the orientations during your first 2 weeks of training. We will be doing initial measurements and going over goal setting as well as nutrition basics . Book your orientation and follow up measurements w Mat 801.836.7185.
What is the schedule for camp?
We offer camp times as early as 5:00am and as late as 5:30pm. A complete schedule can be found on the scheduling system.
Will boot camp kill me?
This is a fair question. We have lost only a handful of campers in the last month….J/K. NO!!!, camp will not kill you. Our coaches teach multiple levels of every exercise that will accommodate almost all fitness levels. If you can’t perform an exercise due to fitness level or an injury our coaches have multiple “work around” exercises you can perform.
Will camp be hard? Yea, you would be disappointed if it wasn’t. You will be pushed out of your comfort zone under the watchful eyes of your coach. You will do things you didn’t think you could do, but our coaches will keep you safe. If you have questions or concerns always discuss them with your coach.
If you are still concerned that it could be too challenging, we have training options in our small group personal training program that allows for more adjustment to the workout to fit your fitness level. Contact Mat for details 801.836.7185.
How do I get my Success Session?
Schedule your Success Session with Mat (801.836.7185 call or text). It usually can be done over the phone and takes about 20 minutes.
How do I get my nutrition resources, including my Holiday Survival Guide?
All the resources can be found and downloaded on the EXL Member Hub. You should have received an email with your username and login when you signed up. Contact Mat (801.836.7185) if you didn’t receive it.
The Member Hub is a different site then the scheduling system. They both use your email as your username but usually have different passwords. If you can’t find your login, click the link above and follow the ‘forgot my password’ link (remember your username is your email address). There is a specific tab on the member hub for “Finish Strong” clients. If you still have difficulty contact Mat.
Should I do boot camp or small group personal training? What's the difference?
Boot camp works for a large demographic. If you are healthy (free from major illnesses or physical limitations) and you want to get fit, raise your metabolism and lose body fat then boot camp is a good fit. You also need to feel comfortable working out in a large group (up to 18, though the average boot camp size is 6-10).
If, on the other hand, you have some physical limitation that we would need to work around (recent joint surgery, generally poor physical condition) or you prefer a smaller, intimate setting (less than 5 clients) with more personal attention and a program designed to hit better strength gains as well as fat loss then small group personal training is your answer.
If you need more help call Mat @ 801.836.7185 and he can do an assessment with you and give you his professional recommendation.
What if I go on vacation/travel during my 21 day Finish Strong Program?
We will extend your program expiration however many days you’re on vacation/travel and you can complete your program after you return. However, all sessions must be used by Dec 23rd.
What about Thanksgiving? I notice there are no camps offered over the holiday.
We do not have camps the Thursday of Thanksgiving and the following Friday or Saturday. If your 21 day Finish Strong Program lands over the Thanksgiving holiday we will add 3 days onto your expiration to allow you to complete your program. What a great way to hold yourself accountable during a typical feeding frenzy of a holiday!
