Frequently Asked Questions
Young Adult Programme
What will I be eating?
You will be eating well balanced meals on a daily basis which will most likely still consist of some of the foods you currently eat. The general perception is that eating healthy costs a lot of money. We will show you that this isn’t true.
Where is it?
We are Auckland based at the moment. Workout sessions are run at Jellicoe Park in Onehunga and workshop sessions are in Manukau.
Is this a boot camp type programme?
This is NOT a boot camp type programme. We take a holistic approach focusing on changing and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits.
Can more than one sibling take part?
As we require the family engaged in the programme having one sibling take part will benefit everyone in the household. However, we have had occasion where more than one sibling has taken part in the programme and this is reviewed case by case.
Do I need approval from my doctor?
If there are no health concerns or worries approval from your doctor shouldn’t be required. We view each application case by case and if approval is required you will be told during the application process.
What if I have other activities on?
In order to take part in the programme attendance is mandatory so if you have other activities on you will need to make sure they will not interfere with your commitment to the programme.
