Are you up for a challenge? Having a baby? (Now there’s a challenge!) Have an area of your body you really want to target? Whatever your goal, fitness level or life stage, Emily Skye FIT has a short-term program to help you get the results you want.
Want to jump straight into the most popular program on FIT? Why not try Body Sculpt – the 6-week program that will help you to lose weight, build your booty, strengthen your abs and create your most toned and defined body EVER.
Now, let’s dive into the programs on FIT!
The Programs section (hit the menu to find it) contains short-term challenges to get you specific results, introduce you to a new style of training, or guide you through each trimester of pregnancy. When doing a program, you’ll still get your daily meals, mindfulness and tips from your planner, but head into the specific program for your workouts. You do not have to do the workouts in your planner in addition to your program workouts.
Even if you’re working out in your living room, you’re never taking on FIT programs alone – you can share your experience and find support any time in our Facebook community.
So now you know how Programs complement your Emily Skye FIT planner, let’s take a look at the current line-up.
