If you are looking to lose fat, get lean and transform, you should choose the Weight Loss Transformation category. If you are looking to build muscle mass, improve strength and athletic performance, then the Peak Performance category is for you. If you are unsure which would best suit your goals, reach out to one of our Fitness Professionals who can advise you on the most suitable option.
  • What results can I expect?
    As individuals differ, so do their results - even when using the same program. However, the category you select will contribute to your results. Training outcomes may include, but are not limited to, fat loss, building lean muscle, improvements in strength, performance, mobility, endurance and mental clarity.
  • Do I need a Personal Trainer?
    We highly recommend engaging the services of one of our Personal Trainers to provide you the best guidance and accountability throughout the challenge, which can lead to greater results. If you're interested in engaging a Personal Trainer for the duration of the Challenge, browse our Trainers and get in touch to kick-start your results. Prices for additional PT sessions may vary.
