No.  I do everything custom targeted around helping the client get to their specific goals

How Expensive will the food be?

Food expenses actually go down because you will not be eating out, the only meal plan that will be a bit more expensive is the Build muscle because you will be eating so much and so frequently.

Supplements are optional, but we only have you use very few supplements and they will not be expensive.

No, you need to be 100% ready to change your life so all negatives will have to be cut. I want you to succeed and this will hold you back.

Everything will depend on your goals but with weight loss your looking at 7-14 hours weekly with cardio and weights, build muscle your looking at 6-10 hours.

Yes!! I have had so many clients literally worldwide who are transforming their bodies and their lives via Ideal Being! The reason it works is because I teach you all of the keys to healthy, maintainable and long term weight loss. I am NOT about quick fixes, I am about teaching you the skills that you need in order to achieve your ideal physique and maintain it for the rest of your life! Because I teach you how to eat balanced and effectively for either fat loss or muscle building, teach you how to strength train, and teach you how to do “transformation” cardio, my system doesn’t just work for the short term, it works for life.

No, I only make full plans for people, its essential that we have total control of the program this ensures we get you to your goal.

If I’m local can I come in for a consult?

If you are interested in 1 on 1 training then yes, for online I do not do in person consults.  To set up a consult for 1 on 1 training with Ideal Being call 347-644-7243  or email me.  Training 1 on 1 ranges from $70-$100 an hour.

I want to Build Muscle and get ripped abs at the same time, which program should I do?

Its not possible to get bigger and more lean at the same time, the diets are different and the workouts and cardio are different.  We have a plan called Beast Bulk that is geared to get you bigger and more ripped but it takes you through 10-14 weeks of bulking then 10-14 weeks of cutting so in the end your bigger and more ripped.

I want to build muscle where should my starting body fat be?

Its important to be lean first before bulking, if you do it when you have too much fat it will be much easier for your body to gain fat, so for guys be 12% bodyfat or less before starting, for women 16%-18% bodyfat or less

 I just had a baby, when can I start and is it ok that I am nursing?

6-8 weeks after having your baby is when we like to start with mothers.  Yes it is ok that your nursing just make sure to let me know that.

Can I do Online Training if I am a diabetic? Type 1 or type 2?

I have quite a bit of experience with diabetics of both types. If you are type 2, it is likely that your diabetes will go away once you control your diet and lose the extra weight your body is carrying. If you are type 1, that is no a problem either. I have trained many diabetics over the years with the same results as everybody else.

Can I see results even if I am in my 40′s, 50′s or older?

I have not had any problem with clients of any age. There may be issues of getting back into the practice of working out if you have not exercised for awhile but we can address that. There is no reason that a man or women who is 45 or 55 cannot get the same type of results. Your body composition may be different as you age and you will not look like a 22 year old at 52 but in relation to your current body and everybody else your age – you will be a superstar.

Will this work for Hardgainers?

Yes, the workouts and diets will be custom to your overall goals. I am a hardgainer so I understand how frustrating it can be to put weight (muscle) on. I teach you all the ways of building muscle.

Does Online training only work for Men?

Online training is for everyone!!! Great for Men, Women and even Teenagers. Regardless if you need to lose weight, tone up or gain weight and add muscle here at Ideal Being, I can HELP!!! Most importantly I help you become happy again both physically and mentally.

Are there refunds?

There is a no refund policy, we want you to succeed in this having a refund will give you the option of quitting. The system is very effective to those willing to make the changes and who work hard. You must be ready for change , be honest with yourself and take control of your choices!!!

Why does Ideal Being not give Refunds?

What you get from Ideal Being is intellectual property.  Its a custom made program designed by James.  There is no way to return the program because its a electronic item sent via email.  Its not an tangible item that you can return in the mail like a book or dvd.  The clients that contact Ideal Being in advance  will always be told to be 100% ready to transform before buying.  If you are not ready then wait until your fully ready to commit.

Do I have to Take before Pics?

Yes, There is no way for me to be able to see what your body looks like without them.  I cannot make a plan without them. No before pics will be released until the very end with the full transformation.
