Faqs

 

I clicked on the https://kaizen4health.com/channels/aerobics link and didn't see any exercises.

If this happens, please check the time. Videos start every hour on the hour. This means that there will be an exercise video at  2:00, 3:00, 4:00, etc all day.   If by chance you click on the site at 2:32 what you will see is a video slideshow playing which will show you some healthy food choices. About 5 minutes before the hour, you will see a little message in the corner of your screen that says, the next video will start in 5 minutes.  

 

I went to the site at exactly X O'clock and didn't see an exercise video. 

This means that at some point during the previous visit to the site, you closed the browser or pressed pause, or did something that disrupted the calibration of the video.  There is an easy way to fix this. 

Click refresh and refresh your screen.  Also, each time you go to the site after closing the tab, closing the browser, or pressing anything, click play then click refresh to refresh your screen. This will make sure your video schedule is calibrated.

 

I can't hear any sound during the video.

Kaizen4health is designed to be a convenient but non-intrusive program.  The only sound that you will hear is the sound of the chimes every hour on the hour telling you the exercises are about to start.  This is also helpful if you are:

 

1) At work or in an area where you don't want to disturb people too much.

2) Do not speak English.

 

Why do you have the exercises running at night when people are sleeping?

This is because I have friends in other parts of the world who are in other time zones. This means that they can also do the videos during the daytime. So this is set up so that it doesn't matter what time zone you live in.

 

Why do I need a dedicated device?

It is because not using a dedicated device is the number one way to fail at or quit this program.  For a more detailed explanation of this, click here.  Please note:  Spending more than $100 on your used laptop is strictly prohibited and not necessary.

 

How many times a day should I do this?

Thirty minutes of exercise is the ultimate goal. This would mean 8 times per day.  However, when you're first starting out, you'll want to remember the basic principle of kaizen. This means that perhaps on the first day you'll only do it once.  Then you'll do it twice, then after a few weeks, you'll work your way up to doing it 8 times per day.  (At the moment, just 4 weeks in, I usually do about 5 times per day.)

 

You should also never beat yourself up about the number of 4-minute sessions you did in a day.

 

Anytime you decide to move, you are improving your health.  So says Doctor Hazel Wallace.

From the moment you get up out of the chair and start moving, you're winning.

 

What should I do at night when I go to bed?

1) You can turn the volume down so that you don't hear chimes all night long.

2) You can turn off the device completely and remember to turn it on at the beginning of each workday.

In the morning, at the beginning of your workday, when you go to the website, remember to click play then refresh your screen. 

 

Can I do this program with my phone?

You could try but you shouldn't. There are two reasons you should not do this with your phone.

 

1) It will use up too much of your data. A laptop/desktop with a wifi connection is preferred.

2) It increases the likelihood of quitting by 99%.

 

What does Beta Testing mean?

It means this site is a work in progress. New features are being added and tested while user feedback is being used to improve the site. The Beta Testing period will run for about 6 months starting on August 1st, 2021.
