FIT CHICKS BOOTCAMP

FAQ

How long is a FIERCE IN 8 Program?

Each FIERCE IN 8 (formerly FIT CHICKS Bootcamp) consists of a 4 week or 8 week session (ie 8 classes per month). Classes are 2 nights / week and are 60 min in duration.

What is a typical day like at FIERCE IN 8?

Our fun and fabulous FIERCE IN 8 programs are based on RESULTS (even
though they are super fun too!). Each program will get more intense week over week to keep your body challenged.

FIERCE IN 8 is based on our FIT CHICKS high intensity interval training method that combines short bursts of cardio mixed with strength to get the best fitness & weight loss results for our chicks…and the key to is that any chick can do it.

Our FIT CHICKS Signature workouts like “The Dirty 30” to “Tabatas” to “Fab & Focused” include levels & modifications so every chick, from beginner to advanced, will be challenged & included.

Every class is different to keep your body guessing (which will help change your fitness level and shape quicker) but will keep you motivated and pumped. Classes will include cardio drills, high intensity interval training, weights and resistance training, obstacle courses, plyometrics, core work, kickboxing, balance and stability exercises. One thing is always the same though– you are gonna sweat, burn, have fun & get results!

Upbeat Fierce in 8 certified instructors known as Chick Sergeants are there to inspire and challenge you to uncover your FIT CHICK within without overwhelming you (we call it tough love)! It is like personal training in a group setting.

How do you create your FIT CHICKS Signature Workouts?

All FIT CHICKS programs are developed to meet the following criteria:

1. Create an butt kicking high intensity interval workout that burns tons of calories in the shortest amount of time.
2. Teach smart exercises that tone all squishy spots (butt, thighs arms and abs) in under 1 hour.
3. Provide a fun, motivating way for women to spend their time.
4. Help ladies walk away feeling better about yourself than when you walked in.

If it doesn’t do any of the above, it is not included in our workout and we find something that does!

What if I am not physically fit? Will I be able to keep up?

FIT CHICKS’ programs, retreats, DVD’s & workshops are designed for all ages and levels of fitness to participate in. Every exercise will have a modification to ensure a safe, sassy and effective workout to build your fitness level & confidence week after week.

Remember, you have to start somewhere. We believe every woman has a FIT CHICK within and we are here to support you in finding her!

I saw that you need a pedometer. Where do I get one?

Walking is one of most effective ways to maintain fitness results for the long haul but we often underestimate how much we move. Pedometers are the best way to ensure you get your minimum steps each day as per your FIERCE IN 8 Workout map. You can purchase a pedometer in our store, use your own or download an app to your smart phone.

Where do I find my FIERCE IN 8 Workout map, sample meal plan, at home video workouts and music downloads ?

Once you have completed your registration, you will receive an email with details on how to access the FIT CHICKS Members Only Section. This is where you will be able to access all of the the fabulous tools, info and detes for your FIERCE IN 8 Program.

What is the FIT CHICKS start up assessment?

It is a Fitness Assessment that is conducted right before or right after your first class. We will take your measurements, weight and conduct a 5 point fitness test. These numbers don’t matter! It’s only to measure your improvement post-program comparison. Don’t be surprised if you have dropped 3 – 8 inches and have increased your push ups by 15!

You will receive details in your confirmation regarding what time you will need to arrive for your measurements depending on location

Are your boot camp instructors (aka Chick Sergeants) certified and insured?

In order to give you the best results, all FIT CHICKSfitness instructors aka Chick Sergeants are fully certified through a recognized Canadian Fitness Institution, have Fitness Professional Liability Insurance and have completed our exclusive FIT CHICKS training program.

If I sign up for a 4 week program and love it, can I pay the difference and continue for the 8 Week program?

Of course you can! As a returning member, you will get $20 off your next registration which is equivalent to the 8 week rate.

Are outdoor classes canceled if it rains? Will you call me if a class is canceled?

FIT CHICKS offers both indoor and outdoor programs. We will only cancel / reschedule an outdoor class due to unsafe conditions (i.e. lighting in vicinity, freezing rain or tornado winds.) and a makeup day will be offered ASAP.

If the weather looks suspicious, please call your boot camp fitness instructor (aka Chick Sergeant). Their contact details will be provided under the FIT CHICKS Members Only section of the website. You will receive log in details in your confirmation email. In the event we have to reschedule a class due to weather, there will be a recording on your instructor’s voicemail letting you know if your class has been cancelled and where/when the make up class will be.

Rescheduled classes due to weather will be held on the weekend following the cancelled class on either Friday at its regularly scheduled time or Sat at 11am. This will be indicated in the cancellation message.

If it is the regular FIT CHICKS message, classes will be held as scheduled so throw on some waterproof mascara and get ready to sweat!

If I sign up for FIERCE IN 8, are they set days?

NO! In today’s world, we need some flexibility. If you are away one week and can’t make class, you can make up the extra day (s) another week or at a different location (location permitting). You do have to complete all classes during your 4 or 8 week session as we are unable to carry forward days to another session or program.

Why can’t I carry forward classes into the next session?

Due to FIT CHICKS unique schedule of programs, specific days and times for each participant and limited class sizes, we can only provide participants “make-ups” for missed days during your session if class size and location permits. *All “make-up” classes must be completed during the registered program/session *that you are signed up for and can not be carried over to future sessions.

At FIT CHICKS, we are fun but we are also FIRM (nothing like a little tough love!). Just like joining a team sport, you must commit to your fitness program (i.e. same time each day for program duration). Our fitness programs are structured & require a commitment. This will help encourage you to take accountability for the completion of your bootcamp and your ACHIEVEMENTS and get you into an awesome routine for a long term healthy lifestyle J
