FAQ

What is Fitnescity?

Fitnescity offers a private, highly personalized lifestyle management program that includes personal training, nutrition and regeneration.  

Fitnescity's mission is to advance human performance and reduce lifestyle-induced disease.

How does it work?

  • You will be assigned a seasoned coach (Master's, PhD). You will meet your coach about three times a week for private training.  Nutrition, sleep and stress management are also part of your on-going coaching. 

  • Your coach will work with you to define your goals. S/he will design your personalized program using your physiological measurements (e.g. body composition, metabolism, body shape and weight distribution, postural analysis and functional movement), along with your lifestyle data on nutrition, sleep and stress. The coach will then combine this information with your medical history, exercise habits and genetic wellness profile (if available).
  • The coach will seamlessly track your progress. You will also receive access to state-of-the-art visualizations of how your body and your overall wellness are changing.

Nutrition, sleep and stress management are also part of your on-going coaching, and are typically completed online.

Do I have to commit to A 16-week program? 

Yes, the 16-week commitment is a pre-requisite. Our program aims at creating measurable outcomes for our clients, and we do not offer stand-alone, one-time sessions.  

What if I have an existing health condition?

You will be matched with a coach who specializes in your condition: e.g. Injury. Surgery. Chronic Condition. Postnatal. Senior.

Where do I meet my coach?

Your coach will travel to your private gym (if applicable) or will arrange access to a private training facility near you. 

What if I am traveling?

The program is designed to be in-person. However, we do understand that some of our clients might travel extensively. If your schedule does not allow you to be in town for at least two weeks per month, this program might not be the right fit. If you travel less than that, your coach can hold some of your sessions remotely.

Can I try it first?

Yes, you will be able to sign up for an introductory session before you start the program.

Do I need to own any tracking devices?

No, your coach will provide you with the latest technology and devices. You will only need to complete a set of online assessments before you start. You will have the option to take a 23andme test if you'd like.

What measurements does Fitnescity collect? How can I use them to make better lifestyle choices?

The list of these measurements is available on Fitnescity's wellness glossary. We are also constantly adding curated scientific papers to our wellness research guides. If you would like to receive a monthly summary, please sign up for this newsletter

Does Fitnescity Offer Medical Advice?

No, Fitnescity does not offer medical advice. However, you are free to download your data (i.e. your wellness profile) and take it to your doctor.

Always consult with a healthcare professional. Fitnescity's assessments do not diagnose any health conditions or provide medical advice.

What is 3D Body scanning?

3D body scanning is a fast and reliable tool for collecting body measurements. Once a scan is taken (a 40-second process) and data is transferred, a software automatically locates body landmarks and generates measurements, along with a three-dimensional view of your body. 

A scale might indicate that you have gained or lost weight, but it does not show you where these changes happened, and whether you've gained fat or muscle in each body part.

What Are the benefits of 3d body scanning?

  • Receive a full three-dimensional image of your body from a simple 40 second scan.     
  • Get detailed measurements by body part: Segmental weight loss or gain; segmental body fat measurements.
  • Understand your health risks, as measured by your waist-to-hip ratio (WHR).     

More details are available here.         

Can I get a 3D body scan while I am on the Waitlist?

Yes. If you haven't done so, please sign up for the waitlist first. Once you've completed this step, you can sign up for a body scan here.         

What if I prefer to start the program earlier?
