You’ve decided to get serious about your health and fitness. Great! Now how do you navigate your program and start doing the hard work of changing your body and life? Here is your step-by-step guide!
Before you do anything else — pat yourself on the back! Deciding that you want to take charge of your health is a huge first step. Congrats on making a commitment to change your life for the better!
We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people in your exact situation, and we can say confidently that your next step shouldn’t be simply to start “working out.” More often than not, that’s a recipe for spinning your wheels and losing momentum.
Instead, follow a systematic training program that is built for people like you, with a body type like yours, and goals like yours. Here are our most popular plans for every goal:
- For fat-loss, either in the gym or at home: Fat Loss Extreme for Her or Fat Loss Extreme for Him
- For fat loss and muscle gain, in the gym or at home: Toned in 90 Days
- For fast-paced at-home fat-loss workouts: Move
- For muscle gains in the gym: Clean Bulk
Once you decide on a program, now you just need to follow a few simple steps and follow through!
Step 1: Download The V Shred App
You’ll receive an email with your username, which is the email you used at the time of purchase, and a temporary password.
Once you log in and change your password, you’ll find your program and anything else you’ve purchased in a section labeled “My Stuff.”
There’s also a free calorie and macronutrient calculator, a supplement guide, and plenty of other tools to help you.
Step 2: Join Our Online Community
Next up, join our free private V Shred Facebook Groups. You can do this right from the app! You may be tempted to skip this step, but we highly encourage you to sign-up and be an active member. People who stay active in these groups almost always see the best results!
We have one group for men and one for women. Hundreds of thousands of people are on there every day, sharing their stories, giving encouragement, asking questions, and getting answers to their questions.
Our team of V Shred personal trainers also pop in daily and respond to your questions. They even lead what are called Master Classes. These are just for beginners, and they include daily live workouts and Q&A’s.
Once you buy a program, check your email for your Master Class invitation. This is a game-changer for a lot of people, and it could be for you, too.
Once you’re connected with our online community, it’s time to get to work.
Step 3: Pick The Right Nutrition Approach For Your Body Type And Goals
In the app, you’ll find our guide to help build your 90-day diet plan. Go through it step by step, and you’ll get a calorie range for your goals and body type, as well as easy recipes to help set you up for success.
Figuring out how to eat is often the hardest for our clients. Don’t stress! Lots of people find macros and nutrition confusing! It will take some learning and trial and error. Be patient with yourself!
If you find yourself really lost, that is what we are here for!
We have a team of nutritionists that take out ALL of the guesswork! They make custom diet plans for thousands of people every day that are 100% catered to your lifestyle, goals, likes, and dislikes.
Step 4: Start Putting In The Work
Now … it’s time to start breaking a sweat! We can walk you through the startup process and be your biggest cheerleader along the way — but it’s up to you to show up, put in the work, and be consistent!
We make it really easy to do that, because for most of our programs, you can choose to train in a gym or at home. You can pick one track, but you can absolutely go back and forth from home workouts to gym workouts — if that makes more sense for you.
Just click on a day in the calendar, and you’ll get the sets, reps, and even video demos of each exercise. For home workouts, you’ll get a full follow along video. Just press play!
You’ll also find a list of what are called “supplemental workouts.”
These are HIIT workouts that you can swap out for a change of pace or to match the equipment you have— even if it’s no equipment at all.
