How much time should I set aside?

To achieve maximum results during this program, we recommend setting aside a minimum of 11 hours per week.

► 4 hours — Live sessions, splitted among training, group mentoring, and individual mentoring

We don’t work with “homework” concept. This program is for professionals that want to perform at their peak and develop the mindset to achieve it.
