Questions & Answers
“What is a virtual boot camp and how is it different from my dvd workouts?”
Imagine a workout program that combines the customization of personal training, the motivation of group training, and the convenience of at home fitness programs, all delivered via modern technology … your computer, smartphone, tablet, or web enabled TV. You work with a real coach, stay in touch with other boot-campers, all on your own schedule.
“Are the workouts live? What time do I meetup online to workout?”
All the workouts are pre-recorded, but the program is structured so you know what workouts you need to complete each week. You workout on your own schedule and track your progress online. Get inspired by your coaches emails. Keep in touch with your coach and other boot-campers on the private online forum.
“I already belong to a gym, is this for me?”
Most gyms just provide equipment but no training. So whether you have a gym membership or use a home gym setup, having Unite Fitness experts training you is like having a personal trainer and nutritionist, all in the palm of you hand!
“What equipment does this program require?”
Have access to a gym? Then you’ll have access to almost everything needed for these workouts.
Building a home gym? Then depending on your budget, this is what we recommend:
For cardio intervals: You are instructed for treadmills, spin bikes, and/or rowers. Only one piece of cardio equipment is required.
For the strength training: programs can be modified depending on equipment available. Dumbbells, a suspension trainer, resistance bands, bench/ball, and/or pullup bar can be used to complete the workouts.

The virtual boot camp is customized for your goals. Just follow the Fat Burners program through each of the cardio and strength sections to tone without bulking. Follow the nutrition program to rev up your metabolism and burn calories even when you’re not working out.
“I want to bulk up and gain muscle mass, can this program do that?”

“Does this program really work?”
We actually give a damn and want you to succeed.
It took years of research to develop this, the most effective program ever.
The program works, and we have a long list of testimonials to prove it. But what really sets this apart from all other workout programs is in the delivery, using the latest technology to delivery right to your smartphone. And a real coach to keep you focused and motivated from start to finish.
If we didn’t care, we would have just packaged these as dvd workouts and created a cheesy infomercial.
“Is there a diet for this program and if so what is it?”
Our nutrition program is way more than a recipe book with some pictures and a generic diet attached to it. Instead of asking you to drastically change how you eat and deprive yourself. We work on changing your habits and attitude around food. It starts with how you currently eat, then week by week you’ll make small but powerful changes that will drastically improve your results. So it’s still your own eating plan, only better, so it will last and that means changes in your body will last, too.
What results can I expect from this program?
The workouts are challenging, but not impossible. So you might just hate us at first … for making you work so hard. But you’ll soon love us for the amazing changes you’ll see and feel as you reach your fitness goals.
