How Advanced Semesters Work
Learn New Skills
The Thursday webinars are very interactive and are often student led. As long as you’re a member, you will be registered for them indefinitely, so you can log in anywhere in the world to share your work with fellow students and have your photographs critiqued live by our experts.
Semester II - Fitness for Life Semester
Now it’s time to make sure that the changes you have made so far, you will keep for life. It’s time to plan long term success and how to sustain our results once we reach our dream goal. Is it time to make some new goals?
Most people don’t realise that training in your 20’s is completely different to training in your 40’s. In this lesson we learn to master our body’s strength and fitness at any age so we can maximise the health benefits we work so hard to achieve.
There are many different reasons why men and women lose weight differently. In this lesson, we look at specific training, nutrition and recovery methods which optimize fat loss for both sexes.
Throughout your life you may come across injury, health problems or other life circumstances that may limit your ability to exercise in certain ways. In this lesson we look at the most common life obstacles we come across and how to plan your fitness around them.
Semester III - Master Your Body & Mind Semester
The Mystery is over. After the foundation course, you now have the knowledge necessary and are ready to plan your own completely individual fitness plan to help you achieve your specific desired health and fitness results. The key to successfully attaining life changing results is making a realistic, achievable, and enjoyable plan that will fit into your lifestyle - no one else’s.
With today’s hectic world and fast paced lifestyle, it’s so easy to put your own health way down your list of priorities. When you do this, are your family and relationships getting the best of you? In this lesson, you will learn the benefits of putting your physical and mental health first, why it is not selfish and why it will change your entire outlook in life.
Being able to judge the right intensity levels when you are training is the main factor in whether you get no results, small results, or big results. It also determines your training safety and enjoyment. This week will look at lactic acid build up, muscular failure and how to find the balance between the two so you can guarantee the most enjoyment with the best possible results.
Training puts huge amounts of stress on the body and is one of the most overlooked area’s for successfully achieving your desired results. We look at the best methods to maximise your workouts, reduce the chances of burn out and how to optimise recovery through sleep and training frequency.
Semester IV - Nutrition for Optimal Health Semester
We start by discussing the importance of understanding an individual’s macro-based diet for optimal weight loss. You will learn how to properly track your calories (specifically maintenance calories) to determine how to efficiently achieve weight loss based on your diet and lifestyle. The importance of individualised weight loss is explained.
Being unprepared and pressed for time will increase our chances of making poor food choice. Meal planning is needed for optimal results and encourages discipline, which is needed for weight loss and fitness. You will learn how to customise your meal plans for the various results our students will be looking for.
In week 3, we look at how proper nutrition is needed when training to replenish the body. You will learn how proper nutrition for exercise is needed for faster recover, better gains, better results, and over optimal health.
As fitness levels increase, diet and meal plans may need to be adjusted accordingly. Fat loss will often stall after a period, so we must educate our ourselves on macro adjustments. Metabolic rate slows down being in a calorie deficit, but this can be controlled through proper adjustments.
