VIGOR Everyday Athlete and Strenth Athlete are training “teams,” which means they’re part of an ongoing training plan. There isn’t a specific start and end date for them. For others, such as VIGOR Training ACFT, Rags & Mud, AIT, etc., you do need to specify the start date.
If you made a mistake on the start date and wish to change it, follow these easy steps:
VIGOR Strength Athlete (VSA) and VIGOR Everyday Athlete (VEA) are the core to VIGOR Training program. They are considered teams, in that they’re ongoing programs, and those who follow these teams do the same training sessions on the same days, all over the world. Most VIGOR Training members are on one of these teams.
However, the VSA and VEA teams are not appropriate for everyone.
For novice strength trainers, or those with more of a sport-specific training goal, one of the VIGOR Training “Programs” may be more appropirate.
Novices should start with VIGOR Athlete-In-Training Phase I and/or Phase II, which build a foundation for the programming in VEA and VSA.
Others may wish to jump off a team to train for a Tough Mudder, the Army Combat Fitness Test, or another specifc event that has an associated training program for it.
If you’re ever in doubt, ask in the VIGOR (men) or VIGORESS (women) Facebook group.
The following are some recommendations and guidelines to help you decide. Of course, you’re free to train on a team for a while to see if it’s a good fit, and switch to a different team at any time if you decide that it isn’t.
If you do not have the current access codes, request them by clicking on the button above. Once you have the access codes, follow the instructions below:
Athlete-in-Training, phases 1 and 2 are 12-week programs. Once you’ve completed one or both, you could do them again, or move onto VIGOR Everyday Athlete or VIGOR Strength Athlete.
To move onto a new team, see the question before this one.
To restart Athlete In Training, follow these steps:
No. The app is designed for coaches to deliver specific training plans to their athletes, not to track other workouts or training sessions.
For the VIGOR Training members that take part in VIGOR Strength Athlete, and VIGOR Everyday Athlete, I do see public notes in the app. However, for those who are programs, such as VIGOR ACFT or VIGOR AIT, I don’t see them because people are all on their own schedules.
I always recommend posting questions or comments in the Facebook group. I don’t respond to one-on-one questions through Messenger or email unless someone is a member of VIGOR Training Premium. In this way, the whole group gets the benefit of the answers and discussions, and it keeps me efficient with creating new content.
With as many members as have been doing the program for the past 1-2 years, they have good advice and insights to share as well.
