Why online? 
There isn’t always time to get to the gym and back, so busting out a quick workout wherever we are helps us stay consistent with our training. We all have obstacles that we face in trying to keep up with a fitness program so this is an attempt to make location, time, and convenience non-issues.

How does an online fitness program work? 
You sign up and access the workouts on the website. You’ll also receive weekly emails containing that week’s info and suggested schedule. Follow along with the PDFs, videos or the timer app to complete your workouts. Member perks include a private group where you’ll get access to nutrition tips, extra videos, Q&A w/ Ami and special webinars with helpful info. The goal is to keep a consistent routine so the extra support will help you stick with it.

There are tons of fitness programs. What’s different about this one?
First, you’re using the TRX Suspension Trainer, which makes your whole body – especially your core – work to stabilize yourself for every exercise, making every workout as efficient as possible. Second, the variety of exercises, pace and short duration of the workouts makes them more enjoyable. The less you dread them, the more you do them. The goal of this program is to simply get you moving more often during your week. The more you do, the stronger you get, and the better you look and feel.

Can I join at any time?
Yes. But I’ll also be running specific groups that all start together, so you have some support and private coaching with other people like you. You can go one your own or with the group. Either way you keep the workouts, so if you don’t finish in exactly  4 or 8 weeks, don’t worry. They don’t disappear!

What if I bought the program in the past? Can I still join the group?
If you’ve purchased the entire program in the past and want to join in the exclusive group challenge, email flashfitclubs@gmail.com and you’ll be added to the private Facebook group.

Why do I need to ALSO purchase a TRX Suspension Trainer?
If your gym already has one, you don’t have to! But we’re using it because it’s the most bang for your buck. You will have ONE piece of light-weight equipment that can be used in your home, at the gym, on business trips, on vacation, in parks, at sports practices, for years. And Ami likes it because it brings back her 6 pack faster than anything else…

* If you want to buy your straps on your own, make sure you purchase your straps directly from TRX Training or at Dick’s Sporting Goods. They’re cheaper on EBay or Craigslist because they’re likely counterfeit or knockoff straps that will break and could injure you. Your straps from TRX Training come warrantied.

What if I don’t stick to the schedule?
The schedule provided each week is a suggested schedule. You have the ultimate freedom in choosing how much you do on which days work for you. If you’re taking classes somewhere or training for an event or competition, these workouts can be done on the side. Life happens. Adapt as needed.

What if I’m not right next to my computer for the workouts?
Workouts and videos can also be viewed from smart phones and tablets. You can print out the workouts if you want to be device-free. Additionally you’ll get links to a timer app.

Can the timers be adjusted?
Yes! A tutorial is included in your Intro Packet when you sign up.

What if I don’t know any of the TRX Exercises?
We’ve got your back! There are videos included that explain the moves, show you how they’re done, AND offer you various level options to make sure you’re not bored… or dying.

What if I’m out of shape?
Everybody has to start somewhere! Everything we’ll do is scalable: you receive level options for each exercise, so you can pick the level and pace that challenges you the best. From the couch potato to the competitive athlete, there’s something for every body in this program. If nothing else, there’s always the pause button if you need a rest.

Are you going to make me throw up? 
I certainly hope not. Listen to your body and choose a level option that challenges you, but doesn’t kill you. The beauty of this program is you’re always in charge of the pace. Use that pause button if need be.

What if I’m injured or pregnant? 
As long as you’ve been cleared to move by your doctor or physical therapist you should be ok. The object of this program is get you moving BETTER, not worse! But like any partnership, communication is key to ensuring a safe and effective workout! If you’re worried, email Ami and she’ll hook you up with some modifications or a different exercise entirely. If you’re pregnant, let her know at the beginning so she can send you some specific information on which exercises will need to be altered during each trimester.

What if I’ve got issues?
We’ve ALL got issues: emotional, physical, mental, etc. If you have any issue you are battling or are sensitive to, feel free to email. We can chat to discuss solutions for anything that may be standing in your way of success.

Am I going to lose 10 pounds in the first week?! 
Not unless we cut off a limb. Sorry! But weight can be lost, inches can disappear, cholesterol numbers, resting heart rates, and race times can go down, and strength and mood can improve! Keep in mind that this program offers flexibility for busy schedules but the participants that see the most results are the ones that keep the consistency.

What’s with the slower strength workouts? I want to burn calories!
Chill, Bill! Every successful athlete knows there are different skills you have to work on, and they can’t all happen on the same day. This program is made up of a combination of strength workouts, endurance workouts, and metabolic workouts on purpose.  Each workout’s goal is different to give your body the maximum benefits. Some days are for slower moves with more resistance. Other days are for faster moves with less resistance. You’ll burn calories every workout, I promise.

Why isn’t there music in the videos?
So you can listen to the technique cues in the video, hear the workout timers, and play your own music at the same time. If you didn’t like the music we chose, you’d have to mute it to hear your music, but then you wouldn’t hear the timer or movement cues. So play whatever you like and listen to Ami at the same time. Besides, if it were up to Ami, she would have used nothing but Beyonce songs… and then she’d get sued.
