How many calories does a Body Sculpting™ workout burn?

Depending on the amount of weights you use (5-pound dumbbells are recommended), and the amount of resting time between sets, an average Body Sculpting™ workout can burn approximately 200-350 calories per hour. The more weight you use, and the faster you move between the sets, the more caloric burning effect you'll get.

When can I expect to see results?

If you are under 5'5", results should be seen in as little as two weeks. Those who are taller should expect to see results in about 4 weeks. Shorter people respond to weight training faster because their muscle bellies are shorter.

What if I have weight to lose? Isn't all this fat going to turn into muscle?

Body Sculpting™ is highly recommended to those who are enrolled in a weight loss program or on a diet. Because Body Sculpting™ helps to retain lean muscle tissue, the body loses just its fat. Body Sculpting™ works all the muscle groups of the body and boosts the metabolism, helping your body to burn more calories long after the exercise class has ended. This increase in calorie burning is far greater than that produced by aerobic exercise.

Keep in mind that you cannot turn fat into muscle and vice versa. Should you stop working out with weights, you will only lose some of the tone.

Will I still need to do cardio workouts if I take Body Sculpting™?

Our Body Sculpting program is designed to provide a cardiovascular workout as well as a strength training one, meaning the heart will be kept at its target training zone for 20-25 minutes, which will help burn fat while retaining lean muscle tissue.

Outside cardio activities can also be an effective and beneficial addition to your current Body Sculpting workout routine for those who want to see accelerated results.

What size weights should I bring?

What size weights should I bring?

We recommend starting with a set of 5-pound dumbbells - that's 5-pounds in each hand (a total weight of 10 pounds). However, if you are more than 20 pounds over or under your desired weight, or over the age of 50, you may wish to start with a set of 3-pound dumbbells. When you have become comfortable doing the exercises, you may choose to use heavier weights.

What can I expect at the first class?

What can I expect at the first class?

The great thing about our classes is that our classes accommodate all fitness levels, so don't be afraid to try it out! If you are new to strength training, expect some moderate soreness for the next day and possibly the following day after your first workout. If you are experiencing mild to moderate soreness walking down stairs, getting in and out of your car, or sitting down, this is a normal reaction! Stretching will alleviate most of this discomfort. The soreness will be minimal from that point on. Drinking water will help expel the lactic acid that has been stored in the muscles that are sore. Please come back to class even if you are still sore from the previous workout.

Do I have to be in good shape to enroll?

The Body Sculpting™ program accommodates all fitness levels; you simply work out at your own pace. Any fitness level can enroll - whether you are new to exercise or advanced. You can make the workout as hard as you want by simply increasing or decreasing the amount of repetitions in an exercise, and/or the resting time between sets, and/or using or not using weights for the weight training exercises.

If I know I'm going to be missing classes, can I make them up?

It is important that you attend each session because new exercises will be taught at each class. Additionally, many of the centers we work through do not allow make-up classes. There are no refunds or extensions for missed classes. However, we offer free make-up classes at any of our Saturday locations. If you know your schedule in advance, and know you will be missing multiple classes, we can pro-rate your registration fees (available on monthly rate only). All pro-rated fees must be pre-approved through our office before classes begin. Please call our office and discuss your situation with one of our customer service representatives before you attend class.

I'm a senior. Can I take Body Sculpting™?

Yes! our clients come in all ages and fitness levels. You will feel right at home, however, if you prefer woking out with only other seniors in a slower paced class with the option of sitting in a chair,we have designed a special course for seniors called Geri-Fit®. It is taught exactly like our other Body Sculpting™ workouts except lighter weights are used. Most of the exercises can be performed while seated in a chair. A set of 2-pound dumbbells (each) is needed. If you are a physically fit, active senior, chances are good that you will be able to take the Body Sculpting™ class. However, please talk with one of our customer service representatives to obtain authorization. Please view our Contact Page to find address and phone information.

How is Body Sculpting™ different from other workout programs?

Body Sculpting™ instructors provide a one-to-one instruction in the group setting. This assures each participant of learning the exercises and guarantees perfect form. In essence, it's like getting a personal fitness trainer at a very affordable fee.

Because there's no dancing, jumping, jazzing, stepping, or choreography to learn, Body Sculpting™ is ideal for those who dislike high impact or dance moves. All the weight training exercises are easy-to-learn and are performed stationary, thus having no impact on the joints or musculoskeletal system.

Participants taking the program should see results three times faster than cardio workouts because weights are used to stress the muscles. Body Sculpting™ also helps to prevent osteoporosis by increasing bone density - something that cardio alone cannot do. It's proven that past the age of 20, we lose one-half pound of muscle each year. Regular weight training (Body Sculpting™) workouts started before the age of 40 will greatly reduce the risk of developing this life threatening disease.

Can clients buy into the 3-month plan after taking classes for one month?

Can clients buy into the 3-month plan after taking classes for one month?

The two plans that we offer for the Body Sculpting program are our one-month rate at $55 per term, or 3-months for $130 (saves $35). The 3-month discount is available when the client purchases three months at one time. If the client registers for just one month initially, the first month's payment cannot be applied to the two remaining months if the client should then decide she wants the three month plan. The 3-month registration would be considered a new registration of 3-months.

I have a significant amount of weight to lose. Can I enroll in the Body Sculpting program or do the exercise tapes?

It is best to check with your doctor first before enrolling in any exercise program or working out in the privacy of your home using an exercise tape. He or she will be able to advise you if Body Sculpting is appropriate for you. Chances are, he/she will wholeheartedly recommend that you take our Body Sculpting program.

If you have more than 75 pounds to lose, you can use 3-pound dumbbells for the upper body portion of the workout only. However, we suggest that you perform the lower body workout using NO WEIGHTS for at least two to three months. Check with your doctor on a regular basis and keep your health in check. If you ever feel or hear anything unusual, such as a pop, click or sharp pain, seek medical attention immediately.

If you keep up with your exercise program and don't miss your workouts, you will see results each time you work out.
