For whom is the KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP not for?
Potential members who have been diagnosed as having Long QT Syndrome,
any other important health conditions or who are not currently cleared by a physician for exercise are, unfortunately, not well-suited for the Bootcamp program, but we have other options.
If you are also an advanced athlete and you require a fully personalized training program, we are happy to work with you on 1:1 coaching as well.
Is the program only for people who follow a Ketogenic Diet?
The KETOGAINS® Protocol draws it's principles from the Paleo/Primal guidelines, and so we recommend our clients to follow the program as it is to achieve optimal results.
Time after time, our most successful clients are the ones that let us coach them and they follow the program as intended. However, our our recommendations are just that - recommendations. They protocol is based upon countless research studies, academic textbooks, and experience with thousands of clients.
Said that, we do help some of our clients as they become healthier and more fit to expand their diet and we frequently migrate those individuals into a more low-carb paleo like diet.
Can I enroll in the program if I follow a different Diet?
Vegetarian: If you eat at least some eggs and fish, there won't be any issue.
Vegan: this makes a low carb approach and adherence to the program extremely difficult, so preferably get in touch with us via emaill before enrolling.
Other dietary preferences: please enquire via email as well.
To what extent is the KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP personalized?
We do tailor your macronutrient and calories recommendations as to help you reach your goals.
However, the training program is not fully personalized as everyone in the program will follow the same training routine, with some modifications and adjustments depending on your level of fitness and available equipment.
Is every KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP exactly the same?
Every KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP experience is unique, as to keep things fresh and engaging.
Each iteration of the program has a different "main theme" as we touch on different topics as well as improve and expand on its content and revise to the latest science.
The training part of the program is totally new and different but coherent and intentional across the entire year: different exercises, different movements, different patterns, but the same goal.
Do I have to connect at a set time and day to follow the program?
No, we have clients join from all over the world with different time zones; we also have coaches from all over the world and are basically online 24/7, so we try to communicate back as soon as possible.
Hower, everyone trains and follow along at their own pace and availability within the 8 weeks of duration of the program.
How long does the KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP last?
The KETOGAINS® BOOTCAMP lasts for 8 consecutive weeks; it has a set start and ending date. One cannot "pause" Bootcamps and return at a later date where one left off.
