Frequently Asked Questions

What level of fitness experience do I need to have to join the FitStart program?


FitStart got its name because it is primarily designed for individuals who have little to no background in strength and conditioning exercise. The goal of the program is to teach you the foundational movement patterns that are necessary to perform your daily activities. So even if you have never committed yourself to a regular fitness routine this program will help you learn how to exercise the right way!




What exactly do you mean when you say, “foundational movement patterns”?


To function to the best of your ability it is essential that you use your body in a stable, coordinated manner. Doing so minimizes the stress and strain on your tissues that can lead to gradual breakdown and possibly chronic pain and dysfunction. There are key foundational movement patterns that we perform in our daily activities that need to be at their optimum to prevent this. FitStart addresses these movement patterns so you can function at your very best.




What happens after I have completed the eight-week FitStart program?


Completing the program is just the beginning of your journey to achieving optimal health and wellness. Although you will learn plenty during the eight weeks, it is vital that you have a plan in place to ensure that the benefits you have discovered while in FitStart continue down the road. HealthFit has developed several follow-up programs and classes that will help you with this. Of course, if you prefer to go at it alone, our expert coaches can help you build a routine that you can do on your own.




Would FitStart be a good fit for me even if I do exercise regularly?


Of course. Most people who do exercise regularly tend to either gravitate towards more cardiovascular-based exercises as they get older, such as running or using an elliptical machine, or use circuit-type machines to get their resistance fix in. Granted these types of exercise routines do have many benefits but they fail to adequately address the key foundational movement patterns mentioned above. Only with a supervised, structured program like FitStart will you be assured of gaining the benefits of these critical aspects of functional capacity.




How often does the FitStart program meet and how long does it go for?


Based on the guidelines of the Department of Health and Human Services at least twice a week of strength training of all major muscles groups is recommended. The FitStart program follows these guidelines to help you develop the necessary minimal amount of resistance exercise. This is done in a small group setting where a sense of community and camaraderie is encouraged and emphasized. The program has specifically been chosen to last for eight weeks, the minimal amount of time required to instill and learn the foundational movement patterns.
