Tracking macronutrients is proven to work, but our preferred method is to educate our Base Body Babes on how to make the correct food choices that they can maintain for life.

This plan is not vegetarian specific, but if you have special requirements, we have our qualified nutritionist to further help. Visit Jessica Sepel at http://www.jessicasepel.com for any specific nutritional needs.

Is the program only weights based?
The program is a combination of weights based circuits and strength based training.
Is there any cardio in these programs?
All Base Body Babes programs will achieve a cardiovascular response with use of weights. We do not use traditional ‘cardio’ techniques such as treadmills or electrical machines as we believe our cardio methods with weights based circuits are a far superior method to achieve your Base Body.

We highly recommend to follow your program from a gym as you will have access to a greater range of equipment, however we can write your program to follow from home with a limited amount of equipment.
If I workout from home, what equipment do I need?
If you choose to workout from home, we highly recommend you to have a set of dumbbells, a resistance band and a kettle bell if possible.

The number of days you train is up to you, however we recommend a minimum of 3 days per week to achieve optimal results.

Our goal as your online trainers is to assist you in building a Base Body that you can maintain for life.

What do you think about fat burners and pre workouts?
We do not endorse the use of any pre workout or fat burners. Our approach to supplementation is natural and organic where possible.

Our preferred protein powder is BareBlends WPI (http://bareblends.com.au). If you are lactose intolerant or have any other dietary requirements, we recommend a pea protein. Our preferred pea protein is from Amazonia (http://www.amazonia.com.au).
