It is recommended you wear form fitting athletic wear. Do not wear baggy clothing or belts for your measurements to ensure the most accurate reading.

How are the winners determined?

There will also be a weekly HIIT bootcamp starting in January that is available for participants to join.

I wish to stop participating in the challenge can I get a refund?

You are provided with a confidential work out plan and a custom diet plan at the start of the challenge because of this, once the challenge has started your fee will be non-refundable. This non-refundable policy also insures that the prize pot stays fair.

What is a macros diet plan?

Fits Your Macros is an easy and flexible diet plan that is based around consuming a carefully calculated amount of Protein, Carbs, and Fats on a daily basis. This means you still get to eat your favourite foods while dieting. Your macros and calories will be tracked by using the My Fitness Pal app.

For best results, it is recommended to follow the preferred foods list.

What will my HIIT work out involve?

HIIT is cardiorespiratory training and resistance training combined with bouts of short duration, high-intensity exercise and periods of recovery. Your program will have a combination of strength and endurance training. It will be a 4 day per week program that will have cardio training on top of those work outs.

I have injuries or illnesses, can my program be modified?

Yes, please notify Desire Fitness when you register of any injury or illness that may impede your diet or work out plan. The appropriate modifications will then be made to your program.
