In-Person Blast Plan FAQ
1) What is it?
This is a 21 day programme for fat-loss, good nutrition and training. We also run this as an online plan (visit theblastplan.com). This plan is exactly the same, except you physically attend group fitness training classes in Hampton and Hampton Hill area.
To get onto the In-Person Blast Plan, you simply email Annie to enquire about spaces and to check whether this is the right programme for you. Once you’ve paid, this will secure your place.
A couple of days before the official start date of the Blast plan, you will be sent your Blast pack by email. This contains your eating guidelines, recipe collection, measurement sheet etc. You follow these guidelines and you attend as many of the group training sessions in Hampton and Hampton Hill each week as you like, according to what fits in with your lifestyle (see timetable). During the course of the 21 days, you will receive each day an email from Annie. This will contain information about the body, about health, nutrition and what it takes to stay in good shape. They will also entertain you and form a vital part of your adherence to the Blast plan. There is a private Facebook group for you to join too.
2) What can I expect to achieve in 21 days?
Extensive knowledge and understanding about your body as well as a lost of between 5-12 inches over 5 measuring places. You may also lose weight on the scales. That does depend how heavy you are in the first place. You will realise that your loss of fat is determined by your loss of inches, not by the number going down on the scales.
3) What is the Blast eating plan like?
The Blast eating plan works because you will be creating a non-toxic environment for your body. Some foods which traditionally aggravate the gut (sugar, alcohol) are omitted and you will be nourishing and fuelling your body with good normal food. Nothing weird. You are encouraged to eat more protein and your carbohydrate (oats, potatoes, rice etc) quota will be offset by your workouts. You will be given all the instructions you need (including a shopping list) and you shouldn’t be hungry. You will be inspired by the Blast recipe collection, but you have the flexibility to cook your own food using the Blast guidelines. The food you will eat is good, unprocessed food which can easily be adapted into family life.
4) What are the workouts like?
From the timetable of classes run by Annie Deadman Training, you choose as many as you like. You should do a minimum of 4 classes per week. They range from Bootcamp (a mix of strength work and cardio), Circuits (a mix of strength and cardio using varying bits of equipment), Boxing (you should arrive 10 minutes earlier before class to receive some pad handling training), plus our Strength class involves no cardio at all, and just focuses on getting the most out of your muscles.
5) What is the level of support like?
Annie and Aaron are Blast leaders and you will see them at your classes so you may ask anything at any time. You will also be able to email them at any time and you will get a reply the same day. One of the great things about the Blast plan is the community feeling that everyone is doing it together. Everyone on the In-Person Blast plan (plus the Online Blast members) all receive the same daily email plus there are Facebook groups to share stuff and ask questions. The Blast leaders post here too.
