Definitely! While OFS offers a lot of great information for advanced exercisers, there is definitely a lot of content that is designed for those who are new to exercising.
When OFS first began, much of the content was designed with the advanced lifter in mind. Inevitably, everybody who works out regularly will hit plateaus. For that reason, OFS will offer lots of great workout programs to help take your workouts to the next level.
There are certainly plenty of quality products available online that is offered for free. But you will have to take the time to sort through it all, figure out what will be appropriate for your level of fitness, experiment with them to see if it works, compare them to any previous ones you’ve tried, go to one site for exercise instruction, another for workout programs, then yet another for diet and nutrition help, etc. It would be a lot of work, but you could do it. Or, you could just join OFS and get all the above in one location. We even recommend that you expand your horizons and see what others offer. But ultimately you will have to decide what will work best for you. Whether you choose OFS or someone else, we will wish you the best in your journey toward optimal health.
Along with the answer to the previous question, there is definitely a lot of information available out there (e.g. weight loss, strength training, exercise programming, sport conditioning, rehabilitation, nutrition, etc.). At OFS, our wellness coaches and Trainers are hand picked from the best sources, so you can be sure that you will work with only the best in our industry who possess many years of experience.
The time you want to devote to this will be totally up to you. If you’re new to working out and just the thought of physical activity sounds repulsive to you, there are plenty of programs available that you can start with that will only require as little as two days a week, with workouts that are as short as 7 minutes. Even at the advanced level, there are plenty of “condensed” programs offered that will not require a great deal of time commitment.
Again, much of that will depend on what your goals are and how much effort you’re willing to commit to this. Whether your goal is lose weight, build muscle, improve strength… OFS will help guide you on your way to be your very best.
Not necessarily. Being that many of the exercise programs require very little to no equipment, you can certainly perform those at home, as well as other public facilities like parks, beaches, etc. Although, having a club membership will offer a much greater variety when choosing and designing exercise programs that utilize specific machines or exercise implements. Another option would be to outfit your own home gym with some basic equipment that would not require a big financial investment.
Much of OFS specializes in disease and injury recovery. However, we would recommend that you follow any medical guidelines given by your physician in accordance with the severity of your injury. Then when you’re ready to move again, you can consult with an OFS Trainer to coordinate how to best move forward.
Most certainly! While OFS was not exclusively designed as a “weight-loss” program, many of the programs, along with fitness and nutrition tips, are definitely designed for those who desire to lose weight. The ultimate goal of OFS is to help EVERYBODY achieve their ideal health and fitness goals. If that includes losing weight, then OFS will help you do that!
While we can design programs for groups and couples, OFS works best on an individual level. When meeting in-person, we have conducted couple’s, small group and boot camp programs. At this time, we do not have categories for couples or group training. However, we will take these into consideration if many more request them.
OFS Online Personal Training is ideal for people that travel or take vacations. We can design full bodyweight workouts or design a program based on equipment you have available. The same accountability, workout tracking and coaching is all mobile and travels with you. So wherever you go, your OFS coach will be there to guide and motivate you every step of the way!
