I must admit, I'm totally flattered.
Anyway, above the Feedback System outline, I posted "(I had asked how often you check in, etc) and ... well, IMO it's not very impressive. What do you think?".
Sue replied with:
Thanks Erica for mentioning us on your blog! It's unfortunate to read you aren't impressed by the feedback service we offer as it is something we have perfected over the 6 years we have been in business. As you can see from our gallery, the results are really impressive if you are committed to working hard. Perhaps herein lies the problem!! We also have a mentor program if someone feels they need to be in contact all the time but we rarely find that is the case. I wish you well on your body blitz! Work hard and the results will be worth it.
OK, so now I feel like I'm eating humble pie. hehehe
I wrote her an email to which I replied:
Me: "In all honesty, I'd really like something face to face over something online - it's just that face to face can be expensive."
(Caps due to the email format - she wasn't yelling at me ;))
Sue: "THAT'S FINE, WHATEVER SUITS, JUST THAT YOU ENQUIRED ABOUT AN ONLINE FACILITY - THAT'S WHAT WE DO :)"
So, yeah, true.
We also said:
Me: "the results are truly impressive and, you know, I really don't know how your system does it. How can only checking in once every now and then by text really give people the spur on they need to work so hard? I just assume they must have inner determination, which at the moment, I don't have too much of."
Sue: "FEEDBACK COACHES ARE THERE TO KEEP YOU ON TRACK AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE PROGRESSING IN YOUR PROGRAM AND FOLLOWING IT PROPERLY. YOU HAVE OVER LOOKED ONE VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT, AND THAT IS OUR CLIENT FORUM. THERE IS SO MUCH SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE THERE, WHENEVER YOU NEED IT, FAR MORE THAN YOU WOULD EVER GET FROM A PT OR A WEIGHT LOSS COUNSELLOR 1 X WEEK."
So how's that? :D
I have to say I still don't know how they get the results they do with their system (and I've spoken to other "real" people on other forums that also swear by it) but maybe I'll never know. Or maybe when I don't have to lose so much weight I'll take it up to do the toning. Because right now I probably need to lose about 35kgs.
Oh, my exciting news so far .... I DID BOXERCISE YESTERDAY AND THEN PILATES STRAIGHT AFTER! ... I survived!!!!
I'm barely even sore, too. But, I did do tons of stretching afterwards. My pt was unwell yesterday so I'll be setting up the action plan tomorrow instead, right before I go see Dylan Moran. Excited!
