Donna’s online training programme rescued me from the exhausting decision and fatigue of what, when and how to exercise.
Following her cardio, strength training and yoga steps have been a no-brainer. She’s done all the work for me to follow. All I do is the work-outs each day and she’s always there - in video and in person - when I need her for guidance, moral support and as a hugely positive influence. I feel very lucky to have her in my life.

FAQ

How much water should I drink per day?
We recommend starting with a minimum of 1-litre per day, and over time, increasing to 3-litres per day.

Are there any products that I should take during a FIT FOR LIFE program?
We strongly recommend Modere products to support you throughout our programs. Please contact Donna for a personalised prescription.

Can I get more support from FIT FOR LIFE?
Our team is available via the Voxer app and email for any questions and to help keep you on track with our programs. However, it is very popular for our members to also purchase our weekly check-in and integrated wellness services, which offer you more personalised 1/1 attention and support.

What types of foods will I be eating?
All program recipes are gluten, dairy and sugar-free. You will reward your body with a detox due to all meals being wholefoods, organic and anti-inflammatory. You will not only lose weight but you will also achieve optimum health.

Can I cancel my membership?
Yes, you can cancel your membership but only during your trial week. If you do not wish to proceed with your program, please email us by day 6. You can also pause your membership once for a 2-week period – either 2 weeks in a row, or two 1-week periods.

What does the building and cutting phase mean?
In short, the “building” phase is to balance your microbiome, your circadian rhythm, restore and balance your blood sugar levels, to build your mitochondria health and energy production, as well as build a strong robust metabolism. Once you have completed the building phase, you will have lost body fat and built some muscle mass (especially if you have been doing the strength training program at the same time). So when you move into the “cutting” phase of the program, by reducing your carbohydrates slowly, you will continue to drop body fat and get into the best possible shape of your life by week 16.
