"How does your program work?"
If you live in the Bay Area,
we first meet with you to develop
background information and set reasonable program goals.
If you live outside the Bay Area,
we use Skype, email, and telephone to do the same.
We then design a specific program for each of three elements
of waist training: (1) a corset-wearing program, (2)
nutrition program, and (3) a waist-targeted exercise
regime. We supervise
your implementation of these three key elements.
Next, we use Skype, email and/or
telephone calls every few days to check in, answer questions,
provide counseling and
feedback, and offer encouragement to achieve your ultimate
We include reading assignments and weekly quizzes to
ensure that you understand key concepts. Throughout
we provide fun rewards and gentle "punishments" that
support your goals.
When you graduate and if you are able, we fete your success
at one of our famed "Corset Soirees" at a San Francisco
hotel. Graduate Cat is pictured right with friends, and
our second coaching student Lynn, is pictured below
her new figure a year after completing her program.
As of 2015 we ask the following firm commitments from
you, otherwise our Coaching Program will not work for you
to help you achieve your goals:
-- communicate every three days without fail
(We can only be of good help with communication
and information from you, no matter what)
-- substantially reduce refined sugar (We will
-- do some homework such as read our periodic blogs,
and answer short (fun) quizzes
-- give up eating out in restaurants
(or negotiate with me what to do if you are
not home and can't cook),
-- plan, shop and cook at home,
-- carry healthy snacks with you,
-- eat "clean" (and do some research on that that is
as part of your preparation homework),
-- even if on the road to up to four times a day,
do 15 min six days a week of what we call in Chapter
8, the 'setting' technique (and we hope for 20 min of
floor exercises for the obliques, or one
standing oblique exercise we would give you easy to
do on the road),
-- divide food intake into at least 7 to 8 times a day,
starting with breakfast with protein --
mandatory each day,
-- not go 'off the reservation' and pig out or lose
touch with me, during time away (vacations, photo
shoots, speeches, travel, holidays, etc.).
"How do I enroll?"
Please confirm via email your age and that you are in generally
good health. If not, some health conditions
may indicate that it unwise to pursue waist training. We
shall advise you regarding those critical matters.
Regarding age, we don't want to risk interfering with
growth when you are young. Thus we do not accept
students under age 20.
"Is this a realistic program, or just another fad
"diet" with fantasy results?"
There is no fad, diet, or fantasy involved: this is a
fun, fashionable and effective lifestyle,
health-conscious program to trim your waist and reshape
your figure. In addition, we demonstrate effective
techniques that can be incorporated into the rest of your
life so that progress can be maintained with little to
"Does it really work to re-shape my figure and help
me trim down, no matter my starting size or shape?"
For most people who enjoy generally good health, the
answer is a resounding YES!
Being held accountable each week to a program we
design together to reach reasonable goals, is often the
critical factor to waist-training success. Also, it is
highly beneficial to have an
experienced coach, plus a former successful
student assigned to you as a Training Buddy. You may call
upon either person to answer questions as they arise and
suggest adjustments to your program.
The process has worked for slim or full-figure students
including a client who weighted 330 pounds then lost 50
pounds and five inches off her waistline
(Ms. X pictured below).
The process works for both women and fir men who
want only to reduce their body fat or achieve a
more manly torso.
The process has worked for one student to diminish then
disappear her Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
The process has worked for several students to disappear "love handles" that
liposuction doesn't address, especially for our
"Are the results significant, or only minimal?"
In major part, the results depend upon you. Size, shape,
and genetics also count. What appears
"significant" is also an individual matter for you to
determine. However, almost everyone can achieve some
figure and posture improvement with moderate effort.
"Do the results last?"
While most of us put back on at least some weight after
a dedicated effort to trim down, our students for the most
part have not regained it all. But that is exactly why
in August of 2015, we introduced our one-month "Tune Up"
Program! Some of our original students have
experienced substantial life stressers that
to return to unhelpful and unhealthy habits. The large majority of our students have kept a
svelte figure through "maintenance waist training."
This involves making a few moderate lifestyle changes
in what and how you eat, adding minimal waist-targeted
exercise, and pursuing periodic corseting or belting.
DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE A ROMANTASY CORSET OR TRAINING BELT TO ENTER YOUR COACHING PROGRAM?
Our answer is "no". However, we encourage you to
consider one of our
corsetieres for your next, smaller, fully-custom corset, based on the
"I�ve gotten a little discouraged (about the fact I
ordered my corset from another business). My OTC corset
too big to train in--and no one told me!.
I wrote the seller and told them of the problems I
have with it. They said it would probably cost just as
much as a new corset to shrink the one I have.
It should not cost as much--except that this business
was unable or unwilling to provide this kind of customer
service to a naive, but rueful, client whom they did not
interview sufficiently to help her choose the proper
size corset to begin with).
We invite you to review the three lines
of our field-tested, tight-lacing custom corsetry (Fundamental
purchasing from another less-experienced or less
business. We welcome custom corset inquiries and will use
our best judgment to guide you to the proper corset -
"I wish I had followed my
intuition and stuck with you. You are a great motivator
and a wonderful business woman. You have forever earned
a loyal client. You have re-energized my spirit in this
area!!!!!! What do I do next to get a properly-sized
corset so I can start training?" C.S.
