  • Apps
    • I have questions regarding the apps

    • Is the app suitable for all fitness levels?
    • Yes, we have over 400 workouts to fit your unique schedule and fitness needs.
    • Will you be adding the Body By You program to the apps?
    • For now, the Workout Builder can be used to create the BBY workouts. More to follow!
    • Does the app have any translations?
    • You can change the language to German in Settings.
    • Why is the Android YAYOG app not the same as the iOS app?
    • The Android app needs to be made compatible with many more devices that have a wide variety of screen sizes, memory capacity, and other limitations that require much more testing and troubleshooting.
  • Workout DVDs/Videos
    • How should I use the YAYOG DVD workouts?
    • Train three times per week- Timed Sets on Monday, Ladders on Wednesday, Circuit Training on Friday. Repeat until you are ready to move on to the next level.
    • How can I incorporate the YAYOG DVD workouts with the books’ programs?
    • Starting week 7 of the YAYOG 10-week programs, you can alternate each week between the book workouts and the DVD workouts. If you’re using the Body By You program, I suggest using it exclusively for at least 3 months.
    • How is the app different from the YAYOG DVDs?
    • The DVDs/videos have workouts that aren’t in the app, and you get to train with Mark as he does the entire workout with you, while guiding you rep-for-rep.
    • How should I incorporate EFX into my current training program?

    • Do you have any recommendations for equipment to enhance my bodyweight training?

    • Which of your programs can I use if I have nothing but floor space?
    • The YAYOG and EFX DVDs require nothing but your own body and enough floor space to lie down in.
    • Where can I find the Bodyweight Bar?
    • After we release the Bodyweight Trainer, we’re going to work on making the Bodyweight Bar available.
  • General Training Questions
    • Do I need to do aerobic activity in addition to your training programs?
    • Only do aerobic activity if you enjoy it. Otherwise, it should be limited to warm-ups, cool-downs, and active recovery. For everything else, high intensity interval training is more effective.

    • I’m having trouble transitioning from the Master to the Chief program. What can I do?
    • Try switching to the Body By You program for 2-3 months. The program is more specifically focused on strength, which makes it easier to develop that skill. Then go back to the 10-week YAYOG programs.
    • Can you make me a diet plan?
    • You Are Your Own Gym and Body By You have nutrition chapters. You can also use the calorie calculator and Simple Meal Planner-

    • Can you help me with an injury?
    • Listen to your body when training. If you have any doubts, please consult with your doctor.
    • Can I gain or lose weight with your program?
    • Yes! These programs can do either, but you’ll need to eat accordingly. You Are Your Own Gym and Body By You have nutrition chapters.
    • What should I do after two or more weeks of not training?
    • If you haven’t trained in two or more weeks, we recommend you start at the beginning of whatever training program you began with. Otherwise, press on!
