Program inspiration

The inspiration to create the Academic Weight Loss program has to do with Virtual Personal Trainer's recent study showing the importance of these three basic components for achieving long-term success:

  • Psychological engagement: the field of "Behavioural Economics" teach us some strategies to help us with both internal and external motivation. The logic behind is, if a person commits to a behavioural change and establishes a "membership"  with a personal trainer, then some consequence (usually a monetary one) will result from failing to achieve their goal. The idea is that the desire to avoid the consequence helps people to be engaged to success.
  • Rewarding (psychological reinforcement): Our study shows that simple rewarding strategies are keys for building up positive-thinking and long-term motivation, as well as successful habit-formation. Our approach includes several rewarding strategies including the establishment of different academic-like degrees that can be achieved upon the progressive completion of different personalized milestones.
  • Social recognition: social mechanisms are key for incentivizing changes. Social media can encourage teamwork, friendly competition, and accountability. Social media gives individuals the ability to influence a high number of people. Studies show that social media can lead to better health outcomes than when it is controled by individual groups. It is believed that social networks can help us achieve what we could not achieve on your own. People demonstrating the completion of our Weight Loss Master- and/or PhD-like degree (see below) will be publicly recognized through Virtual Personal Trainer's social networks: Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

How to lose weight like an academic?

Like any good academic, you should take seriously your goal to become a healthy person and give it a priory in your life in order to achieve success. One typical daily pattern for succeeding the academic program should be eating balanced meals and being a little bit active. Importantly, academic people are not looking for overnight degrees. Losing weight like an academic should be a gradual process over a period of time, never focusing in short-term goals, never relaxing, being highly motivated (the most important element) and with a never easy-to-quit spirit. Virtual Personal Trainer's Academic Weight Loss program has been designed taking into account all the above key elements in order to guarantee long-term weight loss success.


Academic Weight Loss Degrees

Our Academic Weight Loss program consist of the following 5 modules:

Weight loss Diploma

The Weight Loss Diploma will be obtained by program's subscribers after demonstrating they succeeded the first 4 pounds (2kgs) weight loss in 8 weeks maximum, to fulfill with the recommended Ideal Rate Of Weight Loss of 0.5 – 2 pounds (0.25 - 1 kg) per week

Weight loss Associate degree

The Weight Loss Associate Degree will be obtained by program's subscribers after demonstrating they succeeded to achieve the first Weight loss Diploma followed by their own personal weight loss goals. The Associate degree will be only provided to subscribers whom personal goal lies outside the normal BMI category. The time for completing personal goals and obtaining the Associate degree will vary depending on each particular case by following the recommended Ideal Rate Of Weight Loss per week

Weight loss Bachelor degree

The Weight Loss Bachelor Degree will be obtained by program's subscribers after demonstrating they succeeded to achieve the first Weight loss Diploma, followed by the Associate Degree (if personal goal lies outside the normal BMI) and a Normal classification (BMI 18.5 - 20) due to weight loss. The time for completing goals and obtaining the Bachelor degree will vary depending on each particular case and will be calculated by following the recommended Ideal Rate Of Weight Loss per week

Weight loss Master degree

The Weight Loss Master Degree will be obtained by program's subscribers after demonstrating they succeeded to achieve the first Weight loss Diploma, followed by the Associate Degree (if personal goal lies outside the normal BMI), the Bachelor degree, and a Healthiest Weight (HA) classification (BMI 20.6 - 22.8) as proposed by Virtual Personal Trainer's Scientifically-proven approach. The time for completing goals and obtaining the Master degree will vary depending on each particular case and will be calculated by following the recommended Ideal Rate Of Weight Loss per week

Weight loss PhD degree

Weight loss PhD by Virtual Personal Trainer

 

The Weight Loss PhD Degree will be obtained by program's subscribers after demonstrating excellence by obtaining the first Weight loss Diploma, followed by the Associate Degree (if personal goal lies outside the normal BMI), the Bachelor degree, the Master degree, and a successful long-term Healthiest Weight (HA) maintenance. The time for completing this very last weight loss maintenance goal and obtaining the PhD top degree will be of 2 years. A +/- 4 lbs (2 kg) weight loss/gain tolerance will be applied to account for possible weight adjustments due to potential metabolic adaptations. This period is necessary for two reasons: 1) showing an absolute control, managing and mastering weight loss like an authentic PhD; 2) by establishing two years period of weight loss maintenance we guarantee weight pre-setting, a sort of "weight memory" that can protect us from future episodes of weight unadjustments.


  • Program's rules and conditions

  • Applicants: our Academic Weight Loss program is originally designed for overweight or obese people who want to become healthier and eventually reach an Ideal Weight by following a milestone progressive approach. By completing the different weight loss goals and time milestones they will be able to obtain till 4(+1) different degrees (see above). However, we welcome other people's conditions as well, though people with weight conditions other than overweight or obese will be able to obtain only the Weight loss Diploma and Associate Degree. For example, a person with a normal BMI classification might obtain the first Weight Loss Diploma by simply losing their first 4 lbs (2 kg). The same person will be able to obtain an Associate degree as well by demonstrating a successful new and more stringent weight loss classification (i.e: from normal BMI to HA). Non overweight/obese people can not have access to Weight Loss Master or PhD degrees
  • Reporting: subscribers should report regularly (weekly) by emailing to Virtual Personal Trainer providing a summary and evidence of their achievements using the appropriate form. Weight loss evidence can be provided in the form of screenshot of a Virtual Personal Trainer's app or other accepted tracking tools/apps.
  • Program suspension and cancelation: subscribers unable to complete milestones and weight loss goals at the specified timings will be giving a 1 week warning followed by program termination in case they are not able to successfully complete the assigned goals. Both subscribers and Virtual Personal Trainer can terminate the program at any time. Subscribers can suspend temporary their program and go back later though a new Virtual Personal Trainer's full Weight Loss assessment with potentially new goals, milestone, etc might apply.
  • Sharing results: Our program has been designed using science-based approaches. The results obtained by this experimental program will be presented at international conferences and hopefully published in high impact medical and scientist journals. The data obtained from this program will be further used for adapting, modifying and improving science-based weight loss programs. We will use this information unless members explicitly refuse this sharing policy.
