Go-4-It Frequently Asked Questions
This programme looks intense – I think I’m too unfit!
Go-4-It is one of the most individualised fitness solutions we offer. It all starts with your assessment, where the programme manager (a biokineticist) assists you in setting goals and measures your current level of fitness and other health markers. The prescribed programme then takes into consideration all your results and of course the goal/s you are pursuing.
My goal is to lose weight - how much weight can I lose on Go-4-IT?
Weight loss is determined by a number of factors – so during the goal setting process the programme manager will assist you in setting realistic goals. Of course, adherence to an appropriate eating plan is crucial, as well as the frequency, intensity and duration of your exercise during the 8 weeks. There will also be a focus on fat loss and how to achieve this.
I am an elite athlete - would Go-4-It assist me in my particular sporting goals?
Most sports have shown a positive correlation between improved fitness and sporting performance. Your programme will be designed taking into consideration your sport and its requirements, as well as your physical strengths and weaknesses.
Do I get a programme once the 8 weeks are completed?
Yes, the complete 8-week programme is given to you on completion of the course for you to continue with. You will also be given advice on how to structure your training in order to prevent burnout or over-training.
I'm at another gym, can I still do the programme or do I need to be a member of SSISA?
Members on the Go-4-IT programme gain full access to the SSISA Wellness & Fitness Centre for the duration of their programme. If you want your programme to be designed for specific use in another facility (e.g. with a different equipment layout or no running track), you will need to mention this to the programme manager so that it can be taken into account.
I always felt that having a disability has limited me in pursuing sports, but my mind has changed from two things and that was my job, as I now work for a disability organisation and my training at the SSISA. I get to pursue my dreams of competing in sports and my Bio – Greg Hyson takes it on as though I can do anything we train for. the support I have received from Greg has been exceptional and I believe working with him I will continue to see improvements in my training and in reaching my goals and dreams.
