What to Expect When You Arrive at Weight Crafters

The following is a general guideline for what you can expect daily here at Weight Crafters. Please note that this is not meant to be an all-encompassing breakdown of your time with us, but rather a basic overview of our schedule and general routines.

Your Arrival at Weight Crafters

Arrivals are on Sundays after 3 PM. Our staff is present until 6 PM when you arrive. 

Before you arrive, you will be given the address, your condo number, and passcodes to the building, your condo and the WiFi internet. After you've had a chance to settle in, you will be greeted by one of our staff who will give you a thorough overview of the facility and the program.

Note: If there is an emergency after hours, then a member of our staff will be made available via mobile phone. Please see our Staff page for more information.

Physical Assessment

Monday morning before any food or drink, you will be given a full physical assessment by one of our staff.

This includes a full BMI assessment, range of motion assessment, personal injury and health history overview, body measurements, weight and height status and review of current medications.

You also will have some basic "before" photos taken of you upon arrival (if you wish), so that we will be able to gauge your improvement from all levels.

Please Note: Weight Crafters is not a medical facility - and therefore we do not possess the ability to medically evaluate or diagnose clients for diseases or chronic medical conditions. This is why we suggest that you see your personal physician before attending the program, to ensure that they agree that you are medically capable of participating.

Once all the initial assessment is out of the way, then the following is what you can expect during a typical week.

Training/Activities vary, depending on your training program needs and the overall scheduling, but in general includes:

  • Strength Training
  • TRX
  • Pilates/Piloxing
  • Cardio Activity
  • Beach Walk or Camp
  • Calisthenics
  • Tabata
  • Plyometrics
  • Circuit Training
  • Kayaking
  • Water Aerobics
  • Stretching routines
  • ...and more.

See our Activities List below for more information on the activities we feature. Please note that schedules may vary depending on training activity, group makeup, weather, etc.

About Our Training

Weight Crafters utilizes the TrueFire Fitness System which is designed to maximize calorie burn, build muscle, increase flexibility and burn free fatty acids (i.e. Burn Fat). This system was designed based on decades of weight loss and fitness experience.

Over-exercise is not beneficial to an individual's overall well-being. There are places promoting 7-8 hours of activities, 7 days per week - and we can only assume that they either A) Do not know what they are doing, or B) Are simply inflating the training time in order to charge you an extra $1,500 per week.

We can assure you that 24-30 hours of physical activity with rest over the weekend is the maximum that a client should be receiving in our professional opinion.

You are certainly not going to maintain a 7-hour / 7-day per week training regimen upon returning home. You need a program that you can maintain - not the extra costs.

About Weekends

All meals are pre-prepared for your Saturday, including breakfast, lunch and dinner.

On Sunday, clients are expected to provide their own meals and put into practice what they have learned.

You will be given detailed ideas and locations to get meals, and will be directed as to the calorie count and food types.

This is so clients can start becoming accustomed to eating out in a healthy manner while they are here with some guidance and accountability.

You cannot learn that in 10 hours of boring lectures.

Note: Madeira Beach is a highly active tourist area, and provides a number of activities for tourists within a 1 to 5-mile radius via trolleys and buses. Please see our Location and Accommodations page for more information about local attractions.
