You can find answers to many common questions below.

PRODUCT

When & how much will I be charged to join Impact Bodies Fat Loss System?

The Impact Bodies RapidGains System costs $17.95 per week. You can pay with either Paypal or Credit Card, and will be charged on the day of sign-up, then every 7 days afterwards until you choose to cancel your membership - which you can do at anytime.

How soon can I access my program after registering as a new member?

You will gain instant access to IBRGS when you register and pay as a new member.

In which currency is the product debited?

Impact Bodies is an Australian based company and bills in Australian Dollars.

Do I need to download an app to use the program?

Not at all. Our program is a web app, not a native app, so it can be accessed and used on all computers, tablets and phones with internet access. You don’t need to download anything, just sign up and get started!

Will I receive a hard copy of the program?

No. We’ve waved goodbye to old fashioned books, hard-to-use ebooks and clunky websites. IBRGS is exclusively online and accessible to anyone who registers as a member.

Is the program customised to my body or just a generic plan?

IBRGS is a custom designed program. You will need to complete a few questions when registering as a new member. This will allow us to tailor your program to your body type, so you can reach your goals as fast as possible.

How quickly can I expect results?

As you’ve probably guessed, results will vary from person to person. Our nutrition & exercise system is designed to help you drop fat and build muscle at a healthy, sustainable pace. We’ve had members lose up to 12kg of fat and build up to 4kg of muscle in 12 weeks. If you’ve set yourself big goals that exceed what’s possible in a 12 week window, you can stay as a member of IB until you achieve your desired results. We continue to offer full support for all members until they reach their dream physiques.

What happens if I fail to follow the program for a day or more?

Sometimes, life just gets in the way, and you may mess up a day. If this happens, just carry on the next day as though nothing happened, and you’ll be fine. If however you mess up two days or more in a row, we recommend repeating that week to ensure you don’t miss important training days and therefore sabotage your results. For this reason, we allow members to stay in the program beyond 12 weeks upon request, so they can reach their goals successfully.

Can I repeat a week if I mess up?

As mentioned above, you sure can.

What happens at the end of Week 12?

If you’ve reached your goal physique (assuming that it was a realistic goal), then it’s party time! You’ve successfully made it baby! If you had to repeat a week, or would like to lose/gain a couple more kilo’s, then you’re welcome to stay with us as long as you need. For you to maintain access to the program’s features and our 24/7 support team beyond 12 weeks, you will need to keep your membership active until you’re ready to leave.

MEMBERSHIP

How long can I stay a member?

You are welcome to stay a member of IBRGS as long as you like. However, this will require you to maintain your weekly subscription. Your ongoing membership will give you continuous access to our training programs, recipe library, 24/7 email/skype support and all new features that we release in the future.

Can I share my program membership with my friends?

As the program is tailored to your body, we strongly advise against sharing your membership, as this may give people access to a nutrition and exercise plan that is not ideal for them.

SUPPORT

Who do I contact if I have questions about the program?

If you have questions about signing up (that aren’t answered in this FAQ section), you can email us at hello@impactbodies.fit. Members who are already doing the program, are also entitled to arrange Skype calls if they’d like. These Skype appointments are made via email.

What happens if I forget my username or password?

No problem. Just click ‘forgot my password’ on the sign-up page and you’ll receive an email instructing you how to reset it.

EXERCISE

How much exercise will I be doing each week?

The amount of exercise changes between phases to keep your training schedule challenging, and to ensure your body is constantly primed for fat-burning and muscle building. Overall, total exercise per week will not exceed 4-5 hours.

What kind of cardio will I be doing?

IBRGS is all about time efficiency. So, we use HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) cardio to burn maximum calories in minimum time.

Do I need to be a member of a gym for this program?

You will need access to a complete collection of weight lifting equipment (Bench press, squat rack, deadlift bar & chin up bar). If you don’t have this at home, then you will need to sign up to a gym. We have specifically chosen gym-based weight training as part of your exercise program because it is proven to create faster, more impressive muscular development and strength than standard home workouts using bodyweight training.

Can I workout from home?

The cardio can be done anywhere you like – at home, outdoors, or at the gym. But the weight training requires weights. So, if you don’t have the equipment mentioned in the question above, you will need to sign up to a gym to begin this program.

I already play sport each week. Can this be factored into the program?

Absolutely. If you’re already active with sport during the week, we don’t want to interrupt that. You can interchange your cardio sessions with sport. If you play sport more than once per week, then in addition to replacing your cardio sessions, we recommend alternating your weight training days with your sport so your body has adequate recovery time. If you’re unsure of how to do this, we’re happy to help. Just send as an email at hello@impactbodies.fit.

What happens if I miss a workout because I was too busy?

All cool. One missed workout once in awhile is ok. If you miss 2 or more however, we recommend that you repeat the week. The IBRGS training program is tied to the nutrition. So, for the ultimate results, you can’t use one without the other.

I feel sore after my workout. Is that normal?

Aching muscles are a common experience when beginning a new exercise program because your muscles are adapting to new physical activity and stress. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is the aching you feel 24-48 hours after exercise. It’s perfectly normal and a sign that muscles are repairing and getting stronger. If the pain you are experiencing after (or during) exercise is sharp or overly tender, it is possible that you may have a strain injury. In this case, it’s essential you visit a medical professional (physiotherapist or osteopath) to assess the pain and ensure you are fit to continue training.

NUTRITION

How much cooking will I be required to do each week?

We use bulk cooking for a portion of your meals each week to minimize time spent in the kitchen. This bulk cooking will be done on weekends. The remainder of your cooking can be done fresh as needed. Total cooking time per week (bulk and fresh) should not exceed 3.5 hours.

How much does the food cost each week?

This will depend on where you buy your groceries. You can expect an average of $90 - $100 per week for your TOTAL food costs. That may seem like a lot in one lump sum if you’re not used to buying a full week’s groceries together, but when you break it down, it’s only $5 per meal Bargain!

What happens if I go out for a meal and am unable to eat the food in my program?

We cater for one cheat meal on Saturday’s where you can eat and drink whatever you want (in moderation of course). However, if you’ve got to eat out mid-week, then we recommend ordering a meal with similar ingredients to the meals in your daily planner. As a rule of thumb, things to avoid include:
     
  • - Wheat
  •  
  • - Excessive Dairy or Fruit
  •  
  • - Refined sugars
  •  
  • - Processed Foods (Any food that comes out of a tin, box or bag)

Can I do the program if I’m vegetarian or vegan?

Although we do offer a variety of shopping lists to choose from based on preference and intolerance, IBRGS doesn’t currently offer a completely vegetarian or vegan friendly meal plan. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you’re welcome to join the program, however you’ll need to substitute the meat for a suitable alternative of your own choosing.

HEALTH CONCERNS

Can I do the program if I’m recovering from an injury?

We recommend you wait until you’re fully recovered from injury before joining IBRGS, as you’ll be required to do some intense exercise, which may aggravate your injury.

Can I do the program if I’m wheelchair bound?

At this stage our exercise plan only caters to people with full mobility. In addition to this, our nutrition plan is based on someone completing the specified training, so if you were to just follow the nutrition guidance without training, your results may not be as desired. Therefore, although we welcome people of all mobility levels, we can’t promise amazing results if you cannot complete the program as it has been designed.

Can I do the program if I’m diabetic?

We recommend consulting your doctor or health care professional before starting the IBRGS program. That being said, our program is designed with regular meal intervals, this will help to keep your blood sugar levels elevated. If you are a type 2 diabetic, this program may help to increase your insulin sensitivity by reducing insulin resistance due to our nutritious recipes.

Can I do the program if I have food intolerances?

Our program caters for many food preferences and intolerances based on the meal plan you select once you’re a member. You can choose shopping lists & meals which are:
  • - Gluten free
  • - Pork free
  • - Fish & crustacean free
  • - Red meat free
We don’t currently have vegetarian or lactose free plans on offer.

Can I do the program if I’m under 18 years old?

No. The IBRGS is designed for men 18 years and over.

Can I do the program if I have high blood pressure?

We recommend consulting your doctor or health care professional before starting any exercise program if you suffer from high blood pressure to ensure you are safe to do so.
