And that's how fast four weeks goes... Hold on tight, the next four goes even quicker!
Look forward to some events coming up in the next month to have you firing on all cylinders for the finish line of the challenge
The leaders in overall weight loss so far are
Fire up team, this is going to be four weeks to remember!
We've gained momentum in the challenge this week with members noticing changes in their fitness, strength, endurance and overall ability within the gym.
It's amazing just how quickly changes happen when training consistently and in particular one-on-one with your personal trainer. This crew, and many more, are pumping through over 5 training sessions each week which would leave some wondering about the chance of burnout, fatigue and injury however speak to any of these guys and you'll come to realise the balance of cardio, weights, stretching and education has them all fired up to train even more.
With the increased fitness we're looking forward to seeing the results continue to speed up in this next week and second half of the challenge, we're really excited to see everyone's half way check-in scans.
See you in the gym!
Week 2 of the challenge is complete and the results are mixed this week.
Some lost weight, others gained weights, some lost less than last week... others like this great man lost MORE than the first week!
Shout out to Alex Renwick for owning his challenge this week. After week one, Alex was please with his result of a couple kilos however on writing it on the progress board and witnessing what others achieved in comparison, Alex decided he could do better, and that he did, losing a cool 3.1kgs in the last 7 days.
Strict meal plans and daily PT has Alex on track and powering towards his goal of 24kg in this 8 weeks.
Proud of you mate!
See you in the gym
On Saturday, we saw this crazy crew tackle the Sand Dune Challenge and they absolutely smashed it!
Some met at the studio and carpooled, others knew the way ‘from last time’.
The challenge this time, 8 laps of 3 down-hills and 3 up-hills ... and it was tough! Just Steve and Rach came close to finishing the challenge this time with everyone putting in a hug effort with some very sore quads.
Coffees and a swim finished the Challenge morning before 9:30 and we were home again.
Congrats to everyone that took part, you all did great!
See you in the gym
Let the sweat begin... this group plus many more - 63 in fact - have committed to eight weeks of clean eating, intense training and weight loss goals to rewrite the record books.

If you need extra accountability, challenge food diaries are available at reception. With these, please be proactive in asking your coaches for feedback and recommendations each time you see us.

Good luck to all involved!
Shout out to our ‘biggest loser’ of the challenge following week one, Matt Keen.
3.2kg in 7 days sets the bar pretty high, and with a goal of losing over 20kg, you’re right on track!
If you were disappointed with your result following the first week, rest assured you weren’t the only one... even Matt here fell 100g shy of his target. Consider it extra motivation for next week to eat and exercise even more strictly than you did this week.
Congratulations Matt and everyone involved in the challenge so far, your team training sessions were epic - you’ve all delivered above and beyond expectations in the studio!
Keep smashing it.
