Get Lean & Ripped - Advanced

Reason to start The Challenge

I have done the challenge a few times previously but I didnโ€™t give it the full dedication. I am committed to being disciplined throughout this challenge to get healthy and in the best shape of my life.

What did you like most about The Challenge?

On a personal level I found that I had more energy throughout the day and an overall feeling of wellbeing. I also really liked the physical results! ๐Ÿ’ช
I enjoyed logging on to the Challenge website each day and looking at recipes, reading the articles and listening to the weekly podcasts. I also looked forward to completing my journal entry each week. This definitely helped to keep focus throughout the Challenge.

What was the hardest thing about your Challenge?

Pushing through the first 2-3 weeks of breaking existing bad habits and setting new habits. Before the Challenge I was in a slump and drinking beer or wine each night with dinner and on weekends.
I did not have a single alcoholic drink throughout the entire 12 weeks of the Challenge. A new beginning!

What impact has The Challenge had on your life?

The Challenge has had such a positive impact on every aspect of my life. It has improved my relationship with my wife. I found that I had more energy and focus as work. I feel healthy, positive and proud of my effort.

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

I would highly recommend the Maxโ€™s Challenge to anyone who is considering it. It has been a life changing experience for me.

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

My wife Venessa was absolutely incredible support for me during the Challenge. I canโ€™t thank her enough. Venessa is so proud of my achievement and discipline during the Challenge. We prepared meals together and the good nutritional habits throughout the Challenge has seen her also lose 5.2kg. I am proud to say that doing this challenge has brought us closer together. Venessa is now keen to do the September Maxineโ€™s Challenge. I canโ€™t wait to return the favour and support her.
Thank you to the Maxโ€™s team.

    Week 12 done. Max’s Challenge achieved! A great last week. Trained hard and continued to follow the nutritional plan 100% with good adjustments over the last few weeks. 3 x morning weight sessions + 1 PT session + 5 HIIT/spin/cardio/stretch sessions. Done some prep through the week for the final photos. I am amazed by the results and feel fantastic. An awesome experience. A big thank you to my wife Venessa for the support over the last 12 weeks.
