Fall 2019

September 15th to December 7th



This program is for women and men, 21 and over, who are ready to live their best life, who are coachable, and enjoy being part of a community of positive people looking to succeed. (and yes, the road to success does have ups and downs, so we are not sugar-coating life, just helping you navigate it better)

If your goal is to be leaner, healthier, and more confident this program is for you.

If you are TIRED of losing and gaining the same weight over and over, this program is for you.

If you feel stuck, uninspired, and need accountability, this program is for you.

If you are done bouncing around from diet to diet and “expert” to “expert” this program is for you.


We know what its like to struggle with weight loss and be confused by all the diet info out there. Here at The Fitness Asylum you are not being told what to eat by some 25-year-old trainer who wears a size 00. We know the journey and have the experience to help you.

This is a program for real people like you.

You get our proprietary, no-fail nutrition guide (that you will OWN forever and it is constantly updated every new challenge), weekly weigh ins, accountability coaches, and a kickass community all working with you. We literally, wrote the book on weight loss.

Our experienced coaches access your food journal to give you direct feedback and help tweak your food intake so your meals are completely customized to you and your goals.

Accountability is everything and we promise to not only hold you accountable, but teach you how to do this for yourself. We have been refining this program for over 8 years with thousands of clients just like you. We are not guessing on weight loss, and neither should you.

Question: What If I miss the Kick off?
The Kick Off meeting is a great way to get started, but we understand you might be away or have another obligation, so we do a Facebook Live video which stay recorded on our Private Page. You can still be successful if unable to attend.

Question: What if I am going away on vacation during the 12 weeks?
Missing time for a vacation, or business trip always happens, so no worries at all.
Life happens and this is a 12 week program.

Question: What if I want to do ONE payment only and not the payment plan?
Sure thing- please email: catherine@fitness-asylum.com

Question: Am I obligated to all 3 payments?
We are offering our program on a payment plan because we are PARTNERING with you. Part of a partnership is of course to honor the agreement terms. And in short, yes. Once you sign up you are obligated to the terms of our program. Seems fair right?

Question: Who is a Member versus and Non Member?
Member status is for anyone with an AUTO PAY Bootcamp option.
Auto pay options exist for unlimited bootcamps or for 8 Classes Monthly.

Question: What are the benefits of being a Member?
Members are given discounts on specialty classes, member raffles, member events and of course the convenience of having bootcamps available in their accounts year round.

Question: Can I do this program if I don’t live in Massachusetts?
Absolutely this program can be done from anywhere in the world. You need a computer, and a Facebook account at a minimum.

Question: Are there certain days & times we have to meet?
Nope. Your Team Captain will suggest some days for Team Workouts or Team get togethers but these are not mandatory. You have total control over your workout schedule. The only “meeting” we would love you to make is the
Kick Off meeting.

Question: How much weight will I lose?
This depends of course. If you have the last 5-10lbs this program can accommodate this, but results are dependent on your effort. On average weight loss for 12 weeks ranges from 15-35lbs.

Question: Do I have to be on Facebook to join?
While we can’t MAKE you be on Facebook, we do use private pages to disseminate information and you will miss it if you are not on FB. If you want, we are totally ok with you creating an alias. Our private pages are NOT visible to the outside world.

Question: Do you use any special food journals or software?
Yes we recommend MYFITNESSPAL (aka MFP)and will be asking for you to friend us there as well so we can view your food intake and help guide your progress. If you have no idea about this FREE on-line app– don’t worry we have a system and process for onboarding you.

Question: When are Bootcamps?
We have over 90 bootcamps weekly combined in our 3 locations.
Here is the schedule: www.fitness-asylum.com/master-schedule

Question: How far in advance can we sign up for Bootcamps?
Bootcamps can be signed up for 1 week in advance on Mind Body Online.
Please NOTE- there is a $10 late cancel fee and a $25 NO SHOW fee. You will want to manage your schedule. If you have any questions please email: catherine@fitness-asylum.com

Question: Can I modify at Bootcamps?
Absolutely, we want you to go at your own pace especially when you first get started or if you have any injuries.

Question: How many Days should I go to Bootcamp?
Most people try to go at least 2x per week. One not need to workout every single day to get results. Food is a minimum of @80-90% of your results.

Question: What are Specialty Classes?
These classes meet 1x per week, same day/time/ location and work on specific skill sets like boxing, kettlebells, and advanced weight training.
More info is here: www.fitness-asylum.com/specialty-classes/class-descriptions

Question: Do I need to use special Supplements or Protein Powders?
You do not! Do supplements sometimes help? Yes. Can Protein Powder be a convenience food- Yes. But neither are mandatory. Our weight loss programs are about eating food, not buying supplements.

Question: Can I do this and be Keto? (or paleo, Whole30, low carb, Slow Carb, High Carb, Vegan, Vegetarian, FODMOPS etc?)
YES! All types of “diets” can be supported with our program. We have had clients be successful with a variety of plans because all diets can work if you know the right way to make them work for you.

Question: I food allergies and sensitivities can I still do this?
Absolutely. We want you to stay away from anything that does not agree with you.

Question: is this program for someone with a lot of weight to lose?
Yes. We have many clients who continue our 12 week programs and have lost 50, 75, 100+ lbs

Question: Will this work for me if I have 5-7lbs to lose?
This program works very well if you working on those last few stubborn pounds or just getting started on your weight loss journey. We have a community of all shapes and sizes working together successfully supporting one another.

Question: How does this program work for weight loss maintenance?
No one likes to hear this, but the truth is maintenance is pretty much doing what you did to lose weight. And weight loss maintenance is more about mid set and habits which require coaching and accountability just like weight loss. Many of our most successful clients stay on with our programs to work on maintenance.

Question: Do men come to The Fitness Asylum?
Oh hell yes!!! LOL! We do have men who workout with us and who participate in our programs.

Question: Can my kids do this program too?
We suggest that this program is for 21 and up but if you have a child who is at least 18 we have made exceptions. Please email catherine@fitness-asylum.com

Question: How do we get the “spouse discount”?
Please email catherine@fitness-asylum.com and she can help you with that transaction.

Question: Is it normal to be afraid to sign up (asking for a friend)?
Very. We understand embarking on something new (or trying to lose weight again) is intimidating. We all fear failure and that is why our program is just as much on MIND SET as it is on the food. The people who are successful with our program are not better than you, or smarter than you or luckier than you—all they did was take a deep breath- sign up and follow along.

We know you might be nervous but you are not alone. There will be many people ready to work right alongside you to help you be successful.

Question: Who is Bonnie Lefrak and why should I care?
Bonnie who? Ha – kidding!! We know her!
Bonnie Lefrak is a fitness and nutrition coach who has over 13 years of experience helping men and women transform their lives with food and exercise. She grew up as the “big girl” who struggled with weight, self esteem and tried ALL THE DIETS. She fell in love with working out in the early 90’s with Jazzercise and she has been learning and teaching ever since. And while it’s great to collect the certifications and trainings, her gift she shares with clients comes from all the hands on experience you get when working with thousands of real people.

Question: What about Coaches and team at The Fitness Asylum?
Every single staff member started as a client first, so they truly know the program and culture and are here to help you be successful.
