Earlier this week I put a Q&A box up on my Instagram, giving you the chance to ask all your burning questions about FHIT. I answered them on my Instagram at the time, and they’re saved to my highlights, but I thought I’d collate them into a blog to make it as easy as possible for you to find out everything you want to know!
- How would a beginner go with this program?
- What made you want to start FHIT?
- Will there be more workouts added?
- Is it safe for postpartum mums? How can I motivate my husband to train with me?
- Do you offer any workouts for women who recently had a caesarean section?
- Do you use this program? And how long do you work out every day?
- Do you need equipment for any of the FHIT programs?
- What does the membership include? Is it just workout videos?
- Is the subscription monthly, or do I have to commit to a whole year?
- How can I access the workouts?
How would a beginner go with this program?
FHIT is made up of five different programs, all accessible under the one subscription. If you are a beginner, Foundations is the perfect program for you to start on. From there you can build your way up to other phases. If you’re not sure where to start or which program is right for you, read here.
What made you want to start FHIT?
Growing up as an elite gymnast, I learnt first-hand how important it is to stay fit, active and healthy from a young age and how that was achievable using only your body weight. I wanted to create programs that were doable from the comfort of your own home, with no equipment necessary. I started off training people in my close network but knew I wanted to reach as many people as possible from all over the world and so I created FHIT.
Will there be more workouts added?
At the moment you have the option to pick from five programs, with over 30 workout videos, but there will be more coming. Stay tuned!
Is it safe for postpartum mums? How can I motivate my husband to train with me?
When I started FHIT, I wanted to design a program that was accessible to everyone, including new mums, which is why I created the Foundations program. I have a lot of postpartum mums who are working their way through the Foundations program at the minute (all with clearance from their doctor!).
The FHIT workouts are quick and fun to follow along. If you do the workouts in front of your husband (like I do), they’ll see how much fun you’re having and hopefully want to join you.
Do you offer any workouts for women who recently had a caesarean section?
I currently have members who are doing the Foundations program following their caesarean section and are also stepping it up to the Phase 1 program. However, please get clearance from your doctor before starting.
Do you use this program? And how long do you work out every day?
Yes! My favourite workouts are generally the Phase 3 30-minute & 45-minute workouts but lately, I’ve found myself short for time and energy, so I’ve been doing Phase 1.2 which is the perfect balance of 15-minute HIIT workouts.
Do you need equipment for any of the FHIT programs?
You don’t need any equipment for any of the workouts or FHIT programs. All you need is yourself and enough space to go into a push-up position.
What does the membership include? Is it just workout videos?
Your FHIT membership gives you access to all of the programs on offer and, with the help of the calorie calculator, there are heaps of recipes and meal guides suited for your fitness goals.
There’s also a dedicated Facebook group so you can interact with other members and help each other stay motivated.
Then there’s the fitness and wellbeing check-in. With this check-in, you are able to track your strength and fitness improvements, as well as your sleep, time and stress management.
Is the subscription monthly, or do I have to commit to a whole year?
You can either choose a monthly, or 3-monthly subscription depending on what billing cycle you want. However, there are no lock-in contracts. I know how intimating it can be locking yourself into a year-long subscription when you don’t even know if it’s right for you.
How can I access the workouts?
Once you sign up, you’ll receive welcome emails that will take you through the set-up process step-by-step, including how to complete your profile. You will then be given exclusive access to a dashboard with access to workouts, meal plans and recipes.
