THE COLLECTIVE ELITE

What is “the lifestyle approach” AKA #theCElife?

It’s a realistic, enjoyable and balanced way of living that anyone can do; resulting in true health and getting the body you want. And because it’s a lifestyle you’ll keep your results for good.

THE BODY GUIDE & HANDBOOK

What is the difference between The Body Guide & Handbook?

The Body Handbook includes The CE’s philosophies and methods, informing you on the essentials of the four foundations of health: mindset, nutrition, fitness and regeneration, keeping you inspired throughout your lifestyle change experience.

The Body Guide shows you how to apply all The CE’s philosophies and methods that you learn from The Body Handbook through easy-to-use programs.

How is this better than other available programs / ebooks?

With The Body Guide & Handbook you get so much more than the standard short term fitness challenge program / ebook. The CE takes a revolutionary approach to getting results: we focus on health; firmly believing that getting and keeping the body you want is the by-product of achieving true health. Our methods also centre on the philosophy, that changing your lifestyle means firstly changing your mind and we give you the tools to make that happen. And finally, while many programs focus on two foundations (fitness and nutrition), we approach health from its four foundations (mindset and regeneration as well), making us the complete lifestyle solution.

Is this program only suitable for women?

Yes. The Body Guide & Handbook have been expertly tailored to change how women approach health, while getting (and keeping) a lean, toned body.

Can I buy The Body Guide and Handbook separately?

No. The Body Guide and Handbook work hand-in-hand to guide, inform and inspire you throughout your lifestyle experience. You cannot use one without the other.

How old do I need to be to use this program?

We recommend that The Body Guide and Handbook are only used by individuals 18 years and over.

Is this program suitable for pre and post-natal women?

The Body Guide & Handbook is unfortunately not for pre-natal women. It is recommended that women obtain doctor’s clearance before commencing our programs 12 weeks post-partum.

Will this approach help me with fat loss?

Yes. The CE recipes have been created to optimise fat loss. Additionally, The CE Method workouts have been tailored to enhance the afterburn effect, leaving your metabolism raised for hours post workout. It is the combination of The CE nutrition, workouts and optimal recovery techniques which result in rapid fat loss.

How long will it take to see results?

Once you adopt the lifestyle you’ll see results within the first 1-2 weeks of your first program. You’ll keep seeing results as you make your way through each of your programs.

Is this suitable for all fitness levels?

Yes. We have 3 program levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. So, no matter your starting point, The CE programs have got you covered. Additionally, we have a 2 week Preparation Program for the individual new to exercise, to help get you started.

I’ve never exercised before, is this suitable for me?

Yes. We’ve included a 2 week Preparation Program for the individual new to exercise, which will ease you into the fitness component of your lifestyle change. It’s your choice how fast you progress through our programs, meaning that should you need to, you can complete this twice before moving onto The Beginner Programs.

What equipment do I need?

Our workouts and regeneration activities are designed so they can be done anywhere. They require minimal equipment, so there are only a few things you’ll need:

A stop watch
Exercise mat
3kg (7lb) dumbbell pair
5kg (10lb) dumbbell pair
7kg (15lb) dumbbell pair
10kg (20lb) dumbbell pair (optional – for highly advanced)
Foam roller

How many days a week will I need to workout?

This varies depending on if you are completing the Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced programs. The number of strength workouts ranges from 3 – 4 per week. Additionally, every level includes 1 high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout per week.

How long is each workout?

The duration of The CE Method workouts (strength workouts) vary depending on your level. Beginner workouts are 24 min, intermediate are 28 min and advanced are 30 min. Additionally, your cardio HIIT sessions vary based on your level; beginner are 8 min, intermediate are 12 min and advanced are 16 min.

Do I get a tutorial of every exercise?

Yes. The Body Handbook provides you with detailed descriptions, images and tips on how to perfectly perform each of The CE’s moves, so you get the most from all your workouts.

Do I need a gym membership?

No. These workouts can be done anywhere with minimal equipment.

Why are The CE workouts so effective?

The CE Method workouts are designed to maximise the effects of EPOC (Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). During EPOC your metabolism speeds up so it can supply all your muscles with oxygen, and it burns fat to do it. The longer you’re in EPOC, the more fat you burn; not just while you’re working out, but up to 24-48 hours post workout.

Is this program suitable for vegans / vegetarians?

Yes. The CE’s food philosophies are for everybody, regardless of your personal approach to nutrition. Of our 50+ recipes, 30 are vegetarian friendly and 23 are vegan friendly.

Are the recipes suitable for people with allergies?

Yes. Our food is based on a ‘eat real food’ approach. So, the majority of our recipes are gluten, lactose and sugar free. However, please consult your doctor before commencing our programs.
