Have Questions?

There’s always plenty to learn about fitness and nutrition. I’ve answered some of the more common questions I get from clients in the sections below, for your convenience. If you have questions that aren’t answered here, feel free to send me a message!

A: The 12-Week Transformation program is a one-time fee that is payed up front at the start of the program. Within 24 hours of signing up you’ll receive an email with my questionnaire attached that is compatible with any Smartphone, Tablet, or PC. This will ensure I can build your plan specifically for you & your unique goals/specifications.

My Meal & Training Plans are also one-time payments & you get exactly one meal plan (questionnaire required) & one training plan for each purchase. They can be followed for as long as you continue to see results although I recommend switching things up between 3-6 months to ensure progress is being made at an optimal rate.

A: The Ultimate Coaching Package is designed for those that want to have a more “hands on” experience & full access to Remington at any time. More frequent updates & 1 on 1 Skype Calls ensure your voice is being heard! This was designed for only the most dedicated of clients who either have a contest or photoshoot scheduled. Even if you don’t have anything scheduled if you just want the extra support then this is guaranteed to work for you!

A: I currently only accept payment through Paypal. This ensures your information is safe & you can be confident knowing you’re using the “industry standard” for online payments.

Don’t have a Paypal account? No Problem! You can check out through Paypal as a “guest” using any credit/debit card. Hassle-Free! No monthly recurring charges or payments.

A: Once a purchase has been made through RemingtonJamesFitness.com you will receive an email within 24 hours with a questionnaire attached that is required to be filled out before I can get started on your plan. Once you fill out the questionnaire it takes 1-3 Business Days (Never Longer) to get everything calculated & put together for you.

A: Of Course! Although I live in the US everything is done online so all you need is an internet connection! All communication is done through email.

A: Yes! I am always available via email at RJ@RemingtonJamesFitness.com I will always get back to you within 24 hours of receiving an email! Most likely this will be much shorter

A: Yes!! When signing up for a Meal Plan or my 12-Week Transformation plan you will have a food preferences option in the Questionnaire that will allow you to choose the foods you want included. This ensures you aren’t stuck with anything you don’t enjoy. Don’t enjoy fish? No problem!! Want Steak? I got you covered!

A: The primary goal of my Meal & Training plans is to Build Muscle &/Or Burn Fat. The increase in strength, endurance, vertical jump, speed, & agility should all be considered bonuses to the primary objective.

If you have any questions about which plan would be right for you just send me an email: RJ@RemingtonJamesFitness.com.

A: A gym membership or extensive at-home gym equipment is required. My plans are made assuming you have access to standard gym equipment. If your goal isn’t to build muscle & it’s to only lose weight then a personalized meal plan would suffice & no gym membership is required.

A: In order to lose body fat you must be at a calorie deficit. Less calories than your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) also known as your "maintenance calorie level". In order to bulk up and gain muscle mass you must be in a calorie surplus. Or consuming more calories than your TDEE. So trying to achieve both muscle gain and fat loss at the same time will just not work. It’s like taking two steps forward to then take two steps back. Just focus on one goal at a time, either fat loss or muscle gain. This is why people go on bulking and cutting phases. All the while keeping in mind the ultimate goal of a lean muscular physique. Keep this in mind when making your goal selection.

A: Depending on what your current goals are (Bulk Up, Cut Down) you may or may not have cardio included. The goal of a bulking plan is to be in a caloric surplus so we want to make sure we’re getting the most bang for our buck. If you would like cardio included in your bulking plan please send me an email & we can quickly make the adjustments!

A: This will vary based on the individual. I am all for having a Cheat Meal once a week to take a little break from dieting but the key here is to not get carried away. Make sure it remains just a “Meal” and not a whole Day. It’s very easy to negate an entire week’s worth of work in one day if you aren’t careful. When I’m in serious prep I don’t do “Cheat Meals” I remove some food from my plan to allow me to incorporate IIFYM into my daily routine. This keeps me satisfied while not breaking my diet. All macros are listed with each meal so you will know exactly what to cut out/add in.

A: Once again this can vary greatly from person to person. If your goal is to “Cut Down” then any extra calories you consume that weren’t accounted for in your plan are going to be detrimental. If you are eating in a Caloric Surplus with the goal of “Bulking Up” then extra snacks won’t be as detrimental as they will further along your goal of weight/muscle gain. Having too many of these “snacks” however can lead to excess fat gain on a bulk. So “snack” at your own discretion.

A: Supplements are not necessary when your goal is to build muscle &/or burn fat. They can definitely help you reach your goals a little faster BUT are absolutely no substitute for a good diet & exercise. My 12 Week Transformation plan & my Meal Plans will include a recommended supplement list with a little information on each one.
