Starting the first week in January (Monday 4th - Saturday 9th), I'm launching an 11 week body transformation challenge. It's £11 for you to enter and every penny of that goes into a prize pot, which will then be split into three cash prizes to be won by the winners of the three categories; most body fat % lost, biggest inch loss & most muscle mass % gained.
The transformation will mainly consist of:
Weekly exercise challenges
Support & access to secret FB group and emails
Before and after measurements
You'll ultimately be in charge of how much/little effort you put into the challenge and how you choose to control your diet etc, but the harder you work, the better your chance of winning. Even if you don't win a cash prize, I'm hoping you'll be REALLY happy with the lifestyle changes you make along the way and the results you see both on and off the scales!
I'll be easing everyone in over the next week or so, since it's NYE today and I'm sure we've all got some food and booze left over that needs using up!
Here's how you can get started:
1) If you haven't already, make sure you register here.
2) Start looking at the food you've got "left over" and decide now what you'll be eating yourself, passing on to family and friends, or giving to a local food bank. Look at the use by dates, anything that can keep can go into storage or will make a good gift! One thing I would like you to do with any food and drink you consume at home over the next week or so is to read labels; this isn't to guilt trip you, instead I'm asking you to do this to familiarise yourself with good/bad ingredients. Chances are sugar will be high on the ingredients list, which is the best thing you can cut out of your diet to enable the best results. Learn to Google unrecognisable ingredients, are they good or bad? Ask yourself if you really WANT to indulge? If the answer is yes, then go right ahead, enjoy it but just be aware of what's going into your body.
3) Take your BEFORE photos! NOW! I don't need them for this challenge, but you do (and I'd love to see them at the end if you want to share)! You may not feel you've achieved much at the end of the challenge, this is why it's so important to take as many recordings of your starting self as possible. I'll be getting you on the composition scales, as well as checking your height and taking your inches but sometimes you'll see the greatest difference when comparing your photos. So many of my class attendees over the years have told me how much they wish they'd taken their before photos! Preferably get someone else to take them for you, in underwear or swimwear, one from the front, side and rear. If you can't get anyone to take your picture, use a full length mirror or put your camera on a timer. I'd really recommend underwear/swimwear as you'll notice the difference much more, remember that no one else has to ever lay eyes on these piccies! If you really can't take underwear pics, wear skin tight clothing instead.
4) Book in your BEFORE measurements with me. There's quite a few of you to get through, so I can't just have a mad rush 5 minutes before class starts, therefore please get back to me ASAP with your preferred time slot. I'll be prioritising those of you who have booked onto the class/course for your chosen times. Please arrive in clothing that is either easy to measure around or easy to lift/roll up (sleeves etc). To save time, please remove coats/hoodies/shoes and socks before reaching me at the scales.
