I feel really unfit and overweight. Can I still participate in a Body Conquest Program?

Absolutely! The team at Body Conquest specialise in developing personalised fitness programs. Our programs are individually designed according to your current condition and exercise history. A member of our team will start you on a beginner training program combined with our Lean Physique Nutrition Plan and guide you step by step to reach your goals. Your trainer will work with you to ensure you start out slow, safely building your fitness and managing your nutrition. If you have a history of high blood pressure, you will be required to get a medical clearance from your doctor before starting your training program. You do not need to be concerned!

I have tried a number of times to lose weight and get fit without success. Why will Body Conquest be any different?

body-conquest-differentBody Conquest programs are designed to teach you how to make that lifestyle change with minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment. A positive lifestyle change is important if you want to maintain your results or continue to improve. With the Body Conquest nutrition plan and educative system integrated into your personalised program we provide information, instructions and support on how to maintain your results. We have many repeat clients who sign up for on-going training sessions with Body Conquest, loved the experience and want to continue to achieve and learn.

Body Conquest often gets clients who have tried everything, from Cohen's, Weight Watchers, Gloria Marshall, Lite n Easy, the Eat For Your Blood Type diet or the Train for 8 minutes a day and lose fat whilst you sleep diet. The problem with all of these, is that the weight loss comes from lean muscle tissue as well as a small amount of fat. The methods used by these diets cause unsustainable metabolic damage. Poor diets lead to lean muscle tissue loss, which is guaranteed to have a reverse effect when when the dieter finishes their program. Due to the impact these have on metabolism, not only will all the weight be put back on, but an extra 2-3 kg as well.

body-conquest-different-foodBody Conquest does not do diets, rather we concentrate on maintaining nutritional standards. We teach you how to incorporate eating well and healthy into your lifestyle as part of your program. We will provide you with the skills to speed up your metabolic rate and become efficient at burning fat 24/7.

Of course moderation is the key. If you want to maintain your results, then generally you would be able to add some different foods in to your plan or be a little more liberal with your servings. Combine this with updating your training programs every 8-12 weeks, to achieve new goals Body Conquest will have you fit and healthy and not just seeing the difference but living it!

I am concerned that your Lean Physique Nutrition Program mightn't work as I already eat fairly healthy?

In many initial consultations clients tell us that they eat well. However on closer inspection of their eating, it turns out that many people's version of healthy eating is not the type of nutrition required for fat loss. While low fat cereal, skim milk, sliced banana and honey, and a glass of apple juice may sound healthy to some – it's actually setting you up for fat loss disaster. Body Conquests Lean Physique Nutrition Program is carefully designed to ensure that fat loss occurs during the program rather than muscle loss, whilst maintaining a safe and healthy metabolism.

I am a vegetarian. Can Body Conquest cater for me?

vegetarianBody Conquest is proud to offer programs that cater to all lifestyles, and have seen fantastic successes with our vegetarian nutrition plans. Protein is a very important part of your diet for building muscle (and remember, maintaining and building lean muscle is what you need to do if you want to change the shape of your body) as well as for losing fat. If you are vegetarian or semi vegetarian, you will need to be able to eat some form of protein – i.e. eggs, fish, whey protein, cottage cheese, soy protein etc. If you are vegetarian purely because you think it's a healthy way of eating, you may want to reconsider as it is not ideal if losing fat and or gaining muscle is your goal.

Do I have to take supplements on your programs?

supplementsFor most people, particularly those on our starter programs, supplements are not necessary to achieve results - however we do recommend protein powders as a convenient alternative to regular meals. Traveling to the beach on a 40 degree day with a chicken breast and steamed vegetables can be pretty awkward!

Our range of dietary supplements can add some fantastic variety to your meals, are extremely versatile and can be used in many awesome tasting recipes. The PVL Whey Gourmet protein powders taste superb and are guaranteed to cure any chocolate or sweet tooth you may have!

I don’t like gyms and don’t wish to join one. Can I train at home?

Body Conquest knows that lifestyles and time management are high influences on meeting motivation for physical change, which is why we can provide specific programs adapted to your personal needs. Provided you have some basic equipment, you can train at home. Whilst our gym will allow for more variety in exercises, with basic equipment, working out at home is a very viable alternative.

For starting out I suggest a fit ball and perhaps 3 sets of dumbbells of several different weight increments : i.e. 2kg, 3kg, 5kg. A barbell (BB) with adjustable weight plates would be an excellent addition to the above equipment. All of these articles are easily sourced from local sports stores or even second hand. A home gym option is another home training alternative. Check out the excellent article on training at home in the blog section of this site as a further guide to setting yourself up at home to achieve your body goals.

If you don't have any cardio equipment at home such as a treadmill or a bike, you can always use simple options such as walking or a combination of walking jogging or running, swimming, cycling, hill climbing or stair climbing. Body Conquest cater for home based training in all of the programs we offer and can deliver personalised sessions both at your home or via online technologies.

If I train at home, how will I know what to do?

Body Conquest will design a specific program for your requirements and goals and will guide you right through it during your first session with one of our trainers. Your trainer will aide you to identify each exercise and ensure that you get the technique right so you start seeing results sooner. The Body Conquest website provides great video and pictures as well as written descriptions of all exercises as a handy online reference to ensure that you get the most out your Body Conquest experience.

I am quite an experienced trainer myself and even have the Certificate 3 and Certificate 4 in Fitness. Can Body Conquest help me to refine my physique that bit further?

Body Conquest helps train many clients that are personal trainers, fitness instructors or bodybuilders/Figure competitors themselves. Everyone needs coaches, mentors or trainers to help get the most out of programs safely and efficiently, as well as for psychological support. The accountability, support and motivation that the Body Conquest team provide is just as important our fitness and nutrition programs. Whilst many people think they are training and eating correctly – this is often not the case and the Body Conquest team may just be able to fine tune your program to break your plateau and boost your success.

I don’t want to get big and bulky….will weight training do this ? I want to maintain or develop more feminine lean and defined figure.

feminine-defined-figurePart of the reason for the success of Body Conquests programs is the very specific weight training/load bearing exercise plans we develop. The majority of our clients want to lose weight which revolves around changing your body composition. This translates to losing body fat and gaining lean muscle. Many people do not understand and misinterpret this translation, thinking that building lean muscle will make them 'bulky'.

Women simply do not have significant amounts of the male hormone testosterone, to become naturally bulky and muscular. Body Conquests proven programs will completely reshape and define your body giving you your femininity, by developing additional lean muscle whilst removing body fat.

Can I be social whilst adhering to the nutritional element of my Body Conquest Program?

socialDefinitely! We are social creatures and should remain that way. Body Conquests nutrition plans allow for social occasions where you can treat yourself to a 'free' meal where you can eat whatever you like. Your Body Conquest trainer will also be happy to provide you with instructions and advice on how to choose your meal when dining out if still wishing to stay within your nutrition plan guidelines.

My wife and I both want to do a program. Is this possible and do we both have to pay full price for two programs?

Body Conquest welcomes couples and groups who wish to change their physiques and nutrition. BC tailors programs that are specific to individuals needs, so there is little chance that the two of you will be provided with identical nutritional plans, although there will be major similarities. Likewise given simple gender differences in physiques, your training programs will be different to suit you and your partners specific needs. Body Conquest is very aware that everyone is constrained by finances to some extent and therefore is only too happy for every couple or family that wish to sign up together to receive discount off their tailored programs.

I don’t want to body build and I am not overweight, I just want to be fitter and healthier. Does Body Conquest cater for people like me?

just-want-fitter-healthierDefinitely! The Body Conquest programs are not just for those who are overweight, rather they are individually constructed to suit each individuals physique and nutritional goals. If you wish to lose just a little weight, or want to see a bit more muscle definition, the Body Conquest team can definitely help you achieve what you wish. You may want to build your strength, establish healthy eating habits, improve your energy levels, be able to perform full chin ups/push ups, be able to complete a triathlon, bounce out of bed with vigor or simply be able to stick to a plan for 12 weeks. Whatever your goals are the Body Conquest team will help you achieve them!

I don’t have a lot of time to be weighing and measuring food, what kinds of foods will I be eating following a Body Conquest program?

no-time-to-weigh-foodThe good news is you won't be counting calories, you won't be weighing food and you won't be hungry! It can't get much easier than that! Body Conquests nutritional plans are simple and straightforward - if you can pick it off a tree, pull it out of the ground, or if you can catch it, you can eat it!

What kind of results can I expect from the Body Conquest 10 week "Fat Loss Course"?

10-week-fat-loss-online-faqEverybody's results are dependent on their own individual characteristics that include gender, age, activity level, starting weight and body fat, as well as individual motivation and diligence to adhere to their tailored program. The more changes you make, the more the results will show. After as little as ten weeks of conscious change, your body will adapt to the new routine and you will look and feel a whole lot better.

Some of the changes that you will observe by the end of this wellness program will include:

  • An improvement in skin texture due to the addition of essential fats, protein and other vital nutrients.
  • An increase in energy levels
  • Changes in body composition : more toned, lean muscle, less body-fat.
  • Improvement in abnormal blood sugar, blood pressure
