Reason to start The Challenge

I find the challenge helps to keep me focused and gives me a foolproof way of training and nutrition that is healthy and easy to follow.

What did you like most about The Challenge?

The new group format- being able to be in more than 1 group, I have found so many new, encouraging, supportive, like minded people who I can now call friends and will continue to encourage and inspire each other to be better versions of ourselves

What was the hardest thing about your Challenge?

I think the hardest thing for me was quieting my own self talk that occasionally popped up and was trying to tell me I wasn't worth it. But I did.

What impact has The Challenge had on your life?

I started this round, mentally, not in a good place. I had completed the challenge at the end of last year, so physically, was not at the beginning of my health and fitness journey but definitely had a long way to go. Here at the end of this challenge I find that I'm ready to continue my health and fitness and I recognise self care is not selfish but rather a necessity and I actually look forward to continuing eating and training and setting goals to achieve which all help me mentally as well. I can achieve anything I set my mind to achieve. I have a level of confidence in myself that I don't think I've felt before and I like what I see when I look in the mirror, being positive about myself whilst recognising that I'm a work in progress

What would you say to people who are thinking of doing The Challenge?

If you are serious about changing your health and fitness then sign up. This challenge has worked for me, the results are obvious to all that know me, and so many others. You get a nutrition and training guideline every 4 weeks, there are recipes you can try and forums and groups that you can chat about anything and so many coaches and ambassadors involved to get advice from so you too can get the results you are after...oh and the supplements are delicious.

Anything else you would like to tell us about your Challenge?

I have my health back and I have Maxine's challenge to thank for that and this is only the start of a better version of me

    Well taken out temporary gym membership at another gym until mine reopens. Flood damage 😢. Anyway, still managed to get it done with some delays as I tried to find equipment in a foreign gym.

    Today I have to say I'm pretty pleased with myself and my training for today. I ran 5km on the treadmill and got 29:59- yeah under 30 mins. Then did Crossfit and thought I was using a 15kg bar- turned out I was actually using a 20kg bar so lifting 5kg heavier than I thought and only missed the time cap by 2 seconds

    Surround yourself with positive, motivating, encouraging people. Had an emotional meltdown before Crossfit but the coach said stay and do the workout and everyone was so wonderful.
