FITNESS PROGRAMS

You do need to have access to a gym to do Lauren’s programs unless otherwise specified as a home program.

You will receive the workouts in digital format through the members area, where they are also downloadable as a PDF.

Starting a new program can be exciting at first but we understand that sometimes your motivation wanes after a few weeks, this is why Lauren sends inspirational tips weekly on how to stay focused and achieve your goals. We know you can do this and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Q. Who can I talk to about my program?

We have an expert team of trainers and nutritionists waiting to help and guide you on your journey, please contact us at support@laurensimpsonfitness.com

Q. I’m not losing weight, what am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately, your body isn’t a computer and we don’t have control over when it decides to lose weight or where it loses it from but if you’re following the exercise and meal plans your body is definitely changing. Your photos are so important for this reason, you may not feel the changes initially but you will definitely see them in the first few weeks of starting your new program. We’d also encourage you to avoid the scales because you’re training hard and building muscle, unfortunately, the scales can’t show you your muscle growth and can be discouraging.

 

Q. I feel really good and I want to do more, what can I do?

Your training program is designed for best results so we’d encourage you to follow the program how it’s been written, however if you want to increase your weights to increase the intensity please go ahead.

Q. Can I double up my training sessions?

More is not always better, so we wouldn’t recommend you double up your training sessions - two workouts twice a week does not equal one workout four times per week which is why Lauren has designed her programs to be spaced out during the week to include rest days. The split between rest days and training days is so important to your progression and achieving your goals. However, we understand that with busy schedules you may need to change things around, if this is the case please contact one of our trainers at support@laurensimpsonfitness.com and we’ll be happy to help


Q. How important is stretching and do I have to do it?

Stretching is so important to prevent injury and DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). We encourage you to warmup and cooldown with each training session, this includes a good 5 minute stretch at the beginning and end of every session.


Q I’m struggling with a particular exercise, is there an alternative?

Some exercises will be difficult if you’re not used to them, we’d encourage you to try them and ask for assistance if you need it. All the exercises have been placed in the program for a specific benefit, however, if you’re really struggling with an exercise please contact one of our trainers at support@laurensimpsonfitness.com and we’ll be happy to give you an alternative.


Q. What if I don’t have time to do all the training sessions in the week?

We understand life can be busy and you may be struggling to find time to fit in your exercise plan each day, if this is the case we’d encourage you to contact us at support@laurensimpsonfitness.com so we can offer you some solutions. We don’t recommend you double up your sessions as this could result in injury and fatigue.

MEAL PLANS


Q. I usually eat higher protein, can I substitute some carbs for more protein?

The majority of meals from Lauren’s plans are approximately 30% protein. However, if you are used to a different macro split then it may take your body a week to get used to the change in macros. If you are used to a higher protein diet and are nervous about a higher carb approach, here are some options:
1 - When there is a carb heavy meal, half the carb content and increase the protein content.
2 - Eat the carb heavy meals around your workout so that way they will fuel you and be burnt off as energy relatively quickly.
3 - Add a scoop of OxyWhey to a shake in the morning/post-workout/dessert and decrease the fruit content.

The way you pick the meals could change the macro split to 40% protein, 30% carb and 30% fat. Please let us know if you have any other questions, email us at support@laurensimpsonfitness.com


Q. Are the macronutrient values given for cooked or raw food?

All the macronutrient values for the foods that appear in your meal plan are measured cooked unless stated in the name (such as oats). 


Q. Are there vegetarian or vegan options with Lauren’s challenges

Lauren offers regular and vegetarian meal plans for her challenges, however, you are able to make common sense changes to adjust the programs to suit your vegan lifestyle.


Q. Can I drink coffee?

Yes you can, but try to drink it without milk or sugar! Do try to limit your beverage consumption to water, no-sugar-added iced tea, black coffee, and other zero-calorie beverages.

 


Q. Are Lauren’s meal plans recipe based?

Lauren’s challenge meal plans are recipe based so all the hard work is done for you, all you need to do is cook them up.
