Is 4 weeks enough time to achieve my bikini body?

Amelia is a Bikini Champion and has been developing these principles over 20 years of her own training and training other women. The program is an ideal kick start and gives you all of Amelia Ricci’s secrets she uses to train Australia’s top fitness models.

You can expect a toned and lean body in four weeks and the results will likely motivate you to change your lifestyle for the long term.

During the program you can expect to lose up to 1 kilogram per week, but the results on the scales are not the primary focus. You will feel energetic and vibrant with a new found energy to live the bikini body lifestyle and develop long term health.

Mindset

I have failed at diets and fitness programs before, why is this program different?

Most diets don’t work because they are very restrictive and offer little nutrition, low calories and an excessive amount of training that is not sustainable. This program will not only change the way you think about yourself but the way you live your life for the long term. You will learn Amelia’s practical tips to keep your health and fitness on track for the long term.

I lack self-confidence and want to feel good this summer, how can this program help me?

Amelia also experienced this early in her fitness career and there is a section dedicated to mindset in the e-book, with plenty of tips to help you overcome this and move forward in a positive way towards achieving your bikini body.

How much time do the workouts take?

30-60 minutes per day with one rest day. However Amelia is realistic and if you need to reduce this you can still do the program, however progress may be slower.

Yes. The exercises are explained with photographs and are suitable for beginners.

Do I need to attend a gym to do the training plan?
