What’s the difference between the Beginner (P1-P4) and Advanced (P5-P8) programs?
Welcome to the #TFNTEAM! We’re so excited that you’re considering joining the fam.
We’ve got two AMAZING programs available, but before you dive in to make sure you check out what’s included in each so you know you’re starting in the right place!
BEGINNER PHASE 1-4 PROGRAM
Our Beginner Program is designed to help you start creating healthy nutrition habits and a consistent training routine. You'll learn what to eat, how to reach your daily calorie and macro targets, what foods give you the most bang for your buck, and how to train most efficiently for your goals to create an hourglass shape.
Our comprehensive Recipe Guide gives direction for 3 meals and 2 snacks per day, shopping lists by week, teaches you how to tweak recipes to align with your daily nutrition targets, and how to swap out ingredients due to preferences, allergies, or religion. Vegan? Don’t worry - we’ve got you covered as well!
With training, expect to see a new set of both at-home AND gym training plans in each Phase. We’ve also included a bonus Base Training Plan in Phase 1 that walks you through the fundamental form cues for our core compound exercises in case this is totally new to you. All our Beginner workouts are full body.
With accountability being so important to your continued success, we've got checklists, check ins and so much more to help you stay on track!
ADVANCED PHASE 5-8 PROGRAM
Our Advanced Program will put less of a focus on daily checklists and more of a focus on education. If you like how in-depth Abby's YouTube videos are, you'll LOVE our Advanced curriculum! We break down every element of our training and nutrition programs, explaining the science behind them as well as the programming decisions Abby has made to make this as effective as possible. We’re all about diving into the “why” here.
With nutrition, we skip past all the "how tos" as far as using a tracking app, plugging in your daily eats, and food journaling when you can’t track on the fly. Instead, we assume members at this level are proficient with calorie and macro tracking, understand how to build meals within their nutrition targets, and dive right into the math behind our formulas. Think less tedious tracking and more intuitive (but still healthy!) eating.
We kick up your training by incorporating body part splits and finisher circuits to your workouts. There are NO bodyweight-only at-home workouts in the Advanced program. Any at-home members who’ve been with us this long are ready to make the leap to the gym, or should at least consider making a small investment in some home equipment to continue increasing training volume and applying progressive overload (e.g. barbell, dumbbells, bench, bands). #TEAMNOPLATEAUS
If you’ve completed our Beginner Program or are an experienced lifter with macro tracking skills, can confidently attest to your training and nutrition consistency, and are ready to challenge yourself even further, the Advanced Program is for you!
