FAQs MJ Coach FAQs

Q: What can I charge for MJ Coaching sessions?
A: That's up to you. Session fees charged by Fitness Professionals vary based on experience and skills. As a guide, a fee being equal to a 30 minute Personal Training session would be appropriate. As you become more experienced coaching MJ, it makes sense that you charge a higher fee.

Q: Do I charge for individual sessions or a full MJ Program?
A:The Metabolic Jumpstart 4-Week program consists of 4 weekly sessions and a Tune-Up review session, so 5 sessions in total. It is recommended that you charge for the full 5-sessions.

Q: Can I charge for a Maintenance program?
A: Yes, you are encouraged to continue weekly MJ coaching sessions with your clients after they complete their initial 4-week program. You can structure maintenance sessions utilising the weekly updates from the MJ Club (MJ Plus) Membership.

Q: Will I be able to run MJ Group sessions?
A: Yes, you can easily deliver Metabiolic Jumpstart to groups. You choose the fee from this and are encouraged to promote participation of your group. This is a great idea for social support.
