Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a refund if something comes up?

Refunds will only be granted for the following situations:

  1. Failure of the host to attend the event
  2. Failure of the facility to be operational at the time of the event. This would include maintenance or utility issues (heat, power), local government restrictions, or other factors that would prevent successful operation during the event
  3. You develop an illness the day of the event that would put you at an increased chance of spreading any cold or flu bugs to other attendees or hosts

Outside of these circumstances, refunds will not be provided. A space at a live event can be gifted to another individual, assuming they meet the above mentioned vaccination requirements.

Additionally, attendees are asked to NOT attend if you are ill, have anyone within your house who are actively ill, or or have recently (within the past week) been symptomatic with any cold or flu.

What if I can't do the exercises outlined? Will I still be able to participate?

Absolutely. The core reason for this workshop is to help people work towards accessing and mastering the compound exercises we're focusing on, so a large part of the workshop is on the exercises we use to help people get to their first reps. If you can't currently do a pull-up, you will still get a lot of value from the workshop.

Will you be recording this workshop?

Not at this time. The only way to take advantage of it is to attend live!

Will Continuing Education Credits be provided for personal trainers?

Yes. Details will be coming shortly as to how many and through which agency they will apply

Can I attend even if I'm not a fitness professional?

Absolutely! The workshop is based on building skills and competency with the outlined exercises, so while it would be a great fit for other trainers, it's actually geared more towards people who just want to learn how to do awesome things with their bodies!
