Glow Guides: My 8-Week Transformational Programme

Glow Guides: My 8-Week Transformational Programme

Glow Guides is out now!

Available to download on iOS and android.

I am so excited about this announcement!! The Glow Guides programme is something I have been working on for two years and I have poured my life and soul into it. I really believe it will change your life.

What is Glow Guides?

Glow Guides is an 8-week, holistic transformational programme – all in an app. A pocket personal trainer, nutritionist and life coach all rolled into one!​​

For me, real transformation starts from within so not only does the programme focus on exercise and diet, but it also allows you to take time out to still and strengthen your mind through meditation – which I think makes it totally different from all the other programmes out there.
Each of the eight weeks builds on the next and is divided into a movement plan, a nutrition plan and a meditation plan – or what I call: Move, Munch & Meditate.

MOVE

The movement programme is made up of yoga videos (led by me), as well as workout videos (led by personal trainer and all-round health guru and babe, Shona Vertue) and PDFs – which you can take to the gym once you’re familiar with the routines.
After trying every exercise under the sun I have found that combining strength and cardio training with yoga was the best way to achieve the beautiful, sculpted silhouette I was after.
The Glow Guides movement programme is all about breath, strength, stability and agility, with the yoga sessions helping to relieve tension, connect with your inner self and attain that sense of bliss!
The classes are never longer than 45 minutes and can also be viewed on your tablet, laptop or Apple TV if you find your phone screen is too small.

MUNCH

The munch programme consists of eight different meal plans, with over 80 new Glow Guides recipes to match. I’ve been listening to you guys and have made really gorgeous meal plans that make healthy eating easy and tasty – so you never have to decide what to eat.
I also went the extra mile and got the meal plans approved by a wonderful dietician, so you can rest assured that you will have all the nutrients you need.
Each week also comes with a shopping list, carefully worked out to ensure you only shop once and have no soggy fresh produce left over come Friday.
The recipes are super simple and of course delicious, not to mention beautifully photographed, so all you need to do is follow the meal plan and enjoy the glowing benefits. You can also find all the recipes in the Munch section on the app if you want to construct your own meal plan.

MEDITATE

The meditate programme is all about relaxation and recuperation. In some ways it is my favourite section of the Glow Guides, and the one I am most proud of, because I really believe it’s the cornerstone to wellness and is so often overlooked.
Each week you will get an audio meditation to listen to. You can do as I suggest and do it straight after your exercise, or just listen another time by accessing it direct from the Meditate section of the app.
Over the eight weeks I will help you bust that stress, free your mind and enable you to fall back in love with yourself.

Why an app?

I wanted to create a Glow Girls community that is by your side, always – cheering you on, picking you up when you’re tired or frustrated and making sure you don’t give up!

Each week starts with a motivational video that will explain what lies ahead and from there on in your week should be easy to follow – with me right with you in your pocket just in case you get lost or have questions.
AND there is so much more on the app than the Glow Guides programme itself!!

​I’ll also be​ streaming live videos every week featuring inspirational interviews with experts, exclusive new workouts, Glow Girls transformation stories, and maybe some guests stars too!​
The community platform is also there for you to message each other in the app, share your progress on the G​low G​uides wall, buy everything you need in the Glow Guides shop and be the first to hear about our incredible Glow Guides events.

How Much?

The app itself is free and is available worldwide both in the App Store and at Google Play (iOS and Android). Once you’ve downloaded the app you’re able to purchase the programme for £49.99. That’s it. There is no contract, no subscription charges and no hidden fees. It works out at less than the price of a coffee per day for the first 8 weeks, and then it’s yours, to access the content again and again, and stay part of the Glow Guides community.

When can I get my hands on it?

The app is available to download now, and you can buy the programme within the app.

What now?

Download the app and let’s get glowing!!

 

Love Madeleine xx

    Hi. Once we purchase the online app, we can access it for life right? (no deadline or expiry). Also if one follows the program to the T (i.e. 90% realistically), how much weight (kilos) would one loose on average for a normal human body metabolism? 2 to 3 expected? I am aware that this is not a weight loss program but rather a great start to a healthy lifestyle all over which one can maintain for life without tit being too drastic. A flat tummy and overall tone are always welcome :-) Daily efforts to maintain :-) The most difficult in my opinion are friends dinners or birthdays… you can’t be too picky and need to remain social or you feel isolated. You also can’t feel ‘left out’ each time…when everyone is enjoying ‘good’ – ok not perfectly healthy – stuff. Food is for the brain too! Dining out is easier as there are usually salads / fish etc on the menu.

      Hello beautiful, yes you have the app for life with a one off payment! You will lose weight, it varies with each individual and wyes we haven’t focused it as a weight loss programme but when exercising and eating this way it helps to get to your natural weight. Yes it’s OK to indulge at social events as after all life is not about deprivation and it’s about enjoying yourself! You can just get back to the plan afterwards xx

  • Caroline Sellar

    Hi, so you have asked for how the first week has gone…. so firstly, I am loving it and really enjoying the ease of having video workouts and yoga, this is so much better than just pictures of circuits to do with lots of words! I have to confess that I only managed to do 3 workout morning sessions plus the first stretchy sunday as I have a 2 ½ year old son, am a single mother with a full time career…. but I am pleased that I managed to set my alarm for 6.15am for 3 mornings! The weekend has been a bit of a wash out as friends over to stay and eating out but I stuck to no wheat /sugar and did 10,000 steps a day. Also to add I can feel all my muscles aching from the 3 workouts so actually think my body needed a few rest days!

    For Sunday prep I and to add lib a bit as I don’t eat red meat so I cooked the chicken and roasted beets and red onion again and had that for dinner last night and will replace this week with the beef stew. (be great if you provided alternate options)
    So a few questions please….
    1) If your body is feeling very achey (I am just getting back into regular exercise since having my son and I’m 41) is it ok to have a rest day?
    2) I often have work functions so I am replacing your meal plan with sensible options when out – any other tips?
    3) I cant find calcium fortified milk (no sugar added) I am having Rude brown rice and almond milk – is that ok?
    4) I would rather not have gluten free oats every other morning… any other more protein based suggestions?

    Thank you!

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Caroline, wow thanks so much for the update! All sounds really great.

      1) Yes you can absolutely have another rest day, listen to your body!
      2) That sounds great, stick to siple dishes – salads, fish of the day and order the sides of veggies! Avoid deep fried and words like glazed.
      3) I love Rude Health brown rice and almond milk!
      4) You could have eggs, chia seed pudding and smoothies! It’s best to go for full fat yoghurt – 1 tablespoon of the seeds is lovely.

      Hope that helps xx

  • Caroline Sellar

    Hi there,

    I’m all ready to start this Sunday but just a little confused with how best to structure the workouts and yoga, you say do your exercise first thing in the morning and each are around 45 mins long, you have 8 workouts and 8 yoga videos… so do we do week 1 work out for say 4 days and the yoga for 3 days including your stretchy Sunday yoga? Many thanks!

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hello gorgeous, amazing!! So pleased you’re starting the plan!! Yes if you click on each day it interchanges between circuit training and yoga! So Sunday – Stretchy Sunday, Monday – Workout A, Tuesday – Yoga 1, Wednesday – Workout B, Thursday – Yoga 1, Friday – Workout A, Saturday – Workout B! I hope that helps, let me know how it goes xx

  • Alex

    Hi, is the vegetarian meal plan out on glow guides yet as me and my family are all veggie but would LOVE to purchase the plan! Especially interested in the yoga and meditation sections as your yoga videos on youtube are great! Thanks :) x

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hello Alex, I love that you’re thinking of getting involved in the program! The vegetarian plan hasn’t been released yet I’m afraid we are working on it! A lot of the meals are already vegetarian and it is very easy to substitute the meat and fish for beans, pulses and quinoa. A lot of the glow community have subbed in chickpeas, sweet potato etc! I hope that helps and the yoga and meditation is great so glad you’re looking forward to it! Let me know how you get on! xx

    • Alex

      Thanks!X

  • Laura

    Hi Madeleine,

    I am really interested in buying the app; but I wanted some info about the workout part. I am used to working out 3 or 4 times a week, and I usually do a lot of cardio and weights; very intense workout overall. I was wondering if the workout offered in your app would suffice?

    Thank you for your advice!
    xoxo,
    Laura

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Laura, so excited you’re thinking of getting the App!

      Yes it will totally fit – it’s a mixture of circuits and yoga it will transform your body! There is movement everyday. You can do Glow Guides and not go to the gym the programme is designed as a transformation!

      Thanks so much, hope that helps xxxx

    • Laura

      Thank you for the prompt response Madeleine! :)

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      No probs xxxx

  • Libby

    Hi Madeline,
    I REALLY want to get your glow guides app but i am a uni student and so am lacking in the money department and i am scared all of your recipes are going to have xtravagent expensive ingrediants that i wont be able to afford and i wont be able to fully participate in the programme! please can you give me some insight/advice on this!

    Love Libby x

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Libby! We’ve put together really budget friendly recipes which are all incredibly nourishing! The weekly shop works out as around £40 per week and you never waste any ingredients! I really wanted it to be approachable and something people can afford. It’s really reasonable in the app and I’m all for batch cooking so making a lot of one dish to save on costs too! I hope that helps and would love to see you in the App! xxx

    • Libby

      Awesome! That helps so much! Thank you! I cant wait to get hold of the app, I need the change! xxxx

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Ahh I’m so excited for you to get your hands on it, I hope you love it! So much fun, you can do this babe xxxx

    • Sarah

      Hi Madeleine,
      Could you please tell me if £40 a week if a food budget for one or two people.
      Thanks.

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Sarah, I would say for 1 person although things like beans/chickpeas can be bought in bulk and won’t make too much difference xx

  • Julia

    I would love to use this app, but I’m a vegetarian. I saw below where you mentioned veggie options are in the works. Will you announce when they are available?

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Julia, we’re working on it now – will let you know so stay tuned babe xx

  • Kelly Freegard

    Hey! I’m really keen to get started with your glow guide. However I’m on holiday for a week in Feb. Can I pause the weekly content whilst on holiday? Also if I purchase today, can I actually start say on Monday rather than today? Thanks!

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Kelly, so pleased you are interested in Glow Guides! Yes of course, you can start anytime. Once you pay for the content you have it for life and can always catch up on the weekly content when you arrive back from holiday. I advise you to start on a Sunday and ease into the week really nicely. Hope that helps, let me know how you get on xx

  • Chloe Brooks

    Hi,

    I’m looking to download the program as it looks great! I work 9-5 5 days a week in an office and am not allowed hot food at work – are the breakfasts and lunches ok for that?

    Also you mention a shopping list which is great! However do you also support with a cook day on a Sunday or something to help prepare for the week?

    Thank you

    • Madeleine

      Hello Chloe, yes the food can all be served cold! Yes there are preparation days to get you sorted for the week. It is all planned out for you so it’s really easy to follow and can fit in with your working life. So glad you want to join our community! xx

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

    • Chloe Brooks

      Thank you so much for coming back to me, could I please ask roughly what each day consists of? Also does it help with weight loss?

      Thank you

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Each day has your each of you meals ad snacks planned for along with an exercise routine. There is also content which includes meditation xx

  • Brownberry

    Hi Madeleine. I would love to buy the app but I am a vegetarian. Is there a vegetarian option?
    Thanks
    B

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hello! Yes we are working on a veggie option now, so please do stay tuned for updates xx

  • Sarah33

    Hi Madeleine. I’ve just gone through the introduction to the app and it looks absolutely fantastic! I saw in the FAQs you said it is not suitable for pregnant women. Can I ask which part in particular you wouldn’t recommend? I can’t wait to download the app and get going so would be happy to adapt those parts! X

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      I think maybe the food might not be enough, it isn’t hardcore but maybe add in an extra snack or two, it’s best to check with your doctor about it before embarking on the full program. You can always use the recipes and exercise program at your own pace.

  • Yeonjoo Lee

    Hi Madeleine, I just finished reading your Get The Glow book. Any plans on publishing a second book? I want to learn more of your principles, but don’t know where else to find other than the Get The Glow book – it’s not enough! haha!

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Yes – Ready Steady Glow! Is being released in April. Click on the book tab on my website. Also, I’ve just released an app called Glow Guides that has plenty of information you can find out more information here http://www.glowguides.co.uk xx

  • 林清绣

    Also,i would like to clarify if the app will be accessible after the 8 week period.

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Yes it will xx

  • 林清绣

    Will there be a discount (early bird offer, maybe)? I find the price a little too steep.

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hey, sorry you find the price too steep but I really think it’s really good value for money. It’s less than 80p per day and you get to keep the app after the 8 week period with full access to everything. It’s less than the cost of some gym memberships, and you won’t need a gym to use Glow Guides. Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope to see you in there xx

    • 林清绣

      Hi Ms Madeleine Shaw, I have another question regarding the app, is the members’ content only available starting the 8th of Jan?

  • Karen

    This sounds like just what I need to inspire me after christmas. Will there be easy to make lunches to take to work?

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Yes of course! You can download the app now and have a look at the preview content to see a few of the recipes. Let me know if you have any other questions xx

  • Danielle

    Hi Madeleine, so excited about this – congratulations! Could you confirm the price of the programme? It says £49.99, but I’m sure it originally said a different/higher price? xx

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hey, of course – yes it is £49.99 we changed it. Hope this helps xx

    • Danielle

      Brilliant, thank you. :-) I’ve managed to secure it as a late Christmas gift for someone who was unsure what to get me!

      Will we need any particular equipment for the programme? E.g. yoga mat, of course – I also noticed a bench in your video? xx

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Hi Danielle, sorry my team and I have been on holiday over the festive period. You can now access the app and purchase your glow kit (yoga mat, bench, resistance bands) before the program begins on Sunday through the app x

    • Danielle

      No need to apologise! I hope you had a fantastic holiday. Thanks for getting back to me xx

    Secondly just wondered how many of the recipes are veggie or easy to make veggie? :)

    Thanks!
    Kerry

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw

      Thanks so much – it really is awesome!

      There are some veggie recipes in the meal plan, and I’m currently working hard to get a full vegetarian meal plan in there before launch. If not by launch, hopefully it will follow very soon after! x

    • http://www.myfruitykitchen.com Kerry-Ann McIntyre

      Thanks for getting back to me! Will it become avalible to people who already purchase the plan? :) thanks! X

    • http://www.madeleineshaw.com/ Madeleine Shaw
