The Benefits of 12WBT Pre-Season

Pre-Season for 12WBT Round 1 2013 kicked off today! Pre-Season goes for four weeks and is a key part of the 12WBT program. Each week you are given two activities that prepare you mentally and physically for the 12 weeks coming up. Nail these and you’ll have begun transforming yourself before the Round even begins!

There’s a HUGE link between the members that complete the Pre-Season tasks and those that have a lot of success within the 12WBT program. I could go on and on about how amazing Pre-Season is (because it is!) but instead I went to Twitter to see what 12WBT members past and present had to say about this part of the 12WBT!







The response was overwhelmingly positive! Get involved in Pre-Season now and start putting in place the roadmap to help you reach your health and fitness goals. You can sign up here.

    1. Hi Laraine – Provided that you have your doctor’s ‘OK’ to join us, we’d love to help you achieve your goals! The 12WBT recipes are low in saturated fat and sodium, and include low glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates – making them suitable for those members with type 2 diabetes.

      Following the 12WBT Meal Plans will help to keep your blood sugar levels constant, which helps to avoid the spikes and swings that have so many people reaching for high sugar food and drinks. Those with diabetes need to be much more focused on this than the average person, and the Meal Plans you receive as part of 12WBT makes this much easier to do 🙂

      You will have plenty of time to check through everything and customise your Meal Plan as needed. We even have a ‘Diabetic Friendly’ filter in the Recipe Index, which may be helpful for you!

      At 12WBT we strongly believe that age shouldn’t be a limiting factor when it comes to becoming fit and healthy. We have a specific Fitness Program called Fit for Fifty which may be suitable for you, and we also have our Move and Move 2 Fitness Programs which are designed for those people who have never exercised before, haven’t exercised in a long time or who have injuries and/or health concerns that requires them to introduce a fitness routine very gently.

      You are also welcome to modify your Exercise Plan if you have injuries or limitations, check with your doctor or healthcare professional for what is best for you. Our members have access to a large and comprehensive Exercise Index, which provides alternatives for many exercises and muscle groups that can be used to accommodate certain injuries and there are plenty of lower impact and beginner level options if these are needed.

      The Member Zone is also a fantastic place to get advice and feedback from other 12WBT members, and what has worked for them.

      We are looking forward to having you join us for the next Round of 12WBT!

  2. Is the pre season part of the complete 12WBT? Do you pay extra for the pre season. Also I am not sure if anyone can answer but can I cook the meals for my whole family ( Husband and two 12yr olds). Thanks guys

    1. Hi Kerry,

      Yes Pre-Season is a vital part of 12WBT and it is included in the total package – so you don’t pay extra! Check out this FAQ for more info The 12WBT Meal Plans can be ‘serves 2’ and you can then double this in order to have enough to feed your family.

  4. To me, my preseason and warmup was so successful that at week nine, I say that “I’m four months into a 3 month program”.

    The small changes that I made during warmup and preseason meant that it wasn’t nearly as difficult starting the program as I thought it might. Using that time to prepare and set goals meant that while I signed up on a whim, I was fully committed when I started the program proper.

    And in one month’s time, I’ll have finished a half marathon.

    1. Thanks so much for sharing this Kelly! We love hearing stories like this about our program.
