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 sessions, so 5 sessions in total. At your course, you will be shown how to promote and sell a full program of 5 coaching 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. At your course, you will be shown how to structure maintenance sessions and utilise the weekly updates from the MJ Plus + Membership.

Q: Will I be able to run MJ Group sessions?
A: Yes, you can easily deliver MJ to groups and will be shown how to do this at your course. You choose the fee from this and are encouraged to promote participation of your group in a full MJ program of 5 group sessions. This is a great idea for social support.
