Frequently Asked Questions

To join the 12WBT family you can become a member of a single 12-week round or a member of 12WBT Lifestyle.

For a single 12-week round it’s either a one-off upfront payment of $159 or 12 weekly instalments of $19.99 ($239.88 in total).

The first of your 12 weekly deductions starts from the time you sign up, so if you start in Pre-Season deductions will cease before the end of the Round.

A 12WBT Lifestyle membership has the following options:

A 12-month membership is either an upfront payment of $519 or weekly instalments of $9.99 (minimum of 52 payments).

A 6-month membership is an upfront payment of $259.

You can pay by credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, or Amex).

We also accept direct deposit for the one-off upfront payment method for the 12-week single round only.

No, you do not need to join a gym to do the Exercise Plans. Most Exercise Plans have 4 different Exercise Locations to choose from – Gym Classes, Gym Machines, At Home, and Outdoors.

If you train at home, you can invest in some dumbbells (a barbell is also a great addition but is not essential) however you can also use weighted drink bottles or a weighted backpack for resistance.  A portable step or bench are also good options but an outdoor step can be utilised and some of the exercises can be performed lying on the ground. A skipping rope will also add great variety and is an easy piece of equipment to carry with you when you are on the go.

While following the At Home option for your Exercise Plan, you can either follow the online Workout Videos (you will need to be logged onto the site to follow these as they are not downloadable) or you can follow the printed Exercise Plan or a mix of both. Some of these Workout Videos require equipment, such as a resistance band and weights (again you can use weighted drink bottles or a weighted backpack rather than dumbbells and a barbell) but you can choose to do only the non-equipment based Workout Videos if you prefer.

You can also get the 12WBT app, which has an interactive workout player, that takes you through all the exercises in your workout to ensure correct form and technique – wherever you may be! The 12WBT App is available from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

Our 12WBT memberships are for individuals only, they are not designed to be shared.  Each membership has unique calorie considerations, exercise recommendations, and profile details.  As a 12WBT member you are setting your own goals and commitments and these are unique to you. As a member, you also enter your personal information for your all-important Pre-Season Tasks, as well as your starting weight and measurements, weekly weigh-ins, monthly Fitness Test results, and revised measurements.

A lot of time, energy, and passion has gone into providing the best possible content we can for our members, so sharing this content with non-members is strictly prohibited.

12WBT is designed so that everyone starts together and finishes the program together.

We can confirm the dates for the next rounds as follows:

  • July 2024 – Pre-Season started on June 3rd and the round kicks off on July 1st, 2024.
  • August 2024 – Pre-Season starts on July 1st and the round kicks off on August 5th, 2024.

During Pre-Season you are asked to complete some simple tasks to set you up for success. Members who join closer to the start of the round still need to complete their Pre-Season Tasks.

Yes, you can give 12WBT as a gift to a friend or family member – great idea!
