Frequently asked questions
What happens after I submit a contact request?
One of our doctors will look through your enquiry and contact you via phone or email (whichever you prefer) usually within 48 hours.
How much of a time commitment is the PHY360 program?
The PHY360 programme takes 3-4 hours in total and is normally done over 2 days. You will need to attend in person for blood tests and body composition measurements which the doctor will want you to fast for.
What can I expect to gain from doing the PHY360?
Your PHY360 will be a comprehensive review of your baseline physical and mental health. We will provide you with a tailored assessment of your health and provide you with practical guidance on how your current nutrition and exercise habits can be improved.
What happens after my PHY360?
You will be sent a PHY Report which includes all of your results and your suggested interventions (including a weekly meal plan). Your mentor will then contact you after 4-6 weeks to see how you are getting on.
Can the programme be done remotely?
The initial PHY360 needs to be done in person. After that consultations can be done virtually if both you and the healthcare team are happy.
I have my own personal trainer, can I continue to work with her/him?
Yes. We work with a range of gyms and personal trainers and our aim is to make things as convenient as possible for you.
Can I personalise my program?
All your programmes will be tailored to your wants and needs. Our PHY360 will collect all the necessary information we need to tailor your programme.
Would you work with my current doctors if I have a pre-existing medical condition?
Yes. Our aim at PHYCORE is to help you and your doctor improve your medical health by using exercise, nutrition and psychological support.
Will my private insurance cover PHYCORE's services?
We always ask you to check with your insurer. Depending on your premium ‘part’ of PHY360 may be included in a wellman/wellwoman check-up. Blood tests and the consultation with our doctor can often be reimbursed but we advise you to check with your insurer prior to completing a PHY360 so there are no surprises!
