ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

MEET AMY & DIRKIE

MEET AMY

Amy Wilson Hardy is an English rugby player. She fell in love with rugby at the age of 11 and her passion for the game fuelled her to reach the Rio Olympic Games, Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and World Cup in 7s and a World Cup in 15s.

She currently plays for the English Premiership side Wasps and is working towards the Tokyo Olympics 2020.

She loves training hard and thrives off the feeling you get after you have given everything you have.

Outside of rugby and training she lives with her boyfriend Perrie and has two beautiful dogs, Rio and Hugo. She loves cooking, being outside and walking the dogs but also loves a lazy evening snuggled up on the sofa.

MEET DIRKIE

Hailing from Pretoria, Dirkie has always had a passion for sport and the outdoors. She lives by the mantra that one's body and mind needs to be looked after, much like one would look after anything valuable in one's life.

At the tender age of 19, after studying Sport Science at TUKS, Dirkie made her hockey debut representing SA at the 2006 Women's World cup - and has not stopped playing ever since! She went on to qualify and took part in the 2012 London Olympic games, and in her professional career of 14 years, has since represented SA in 4 World Cups and 3 Commonwealth Games. Dirkie too has both worked and played overseas in the likes of Holland, England and Belgium!

Back at home, this bush baby can't be found too far from a good ol' braai - and has a sweet spot for rusks dipped in coffee (don't we all!) She is fiercely passionate about her friends and loved ones and believes in the power of resilience - pushing through difficult circumstances that life presents in order to both learn and develop further.

"I have grown a lot in my life due to tough circumstances. However, I would not trade them for anything as I have learned invaluable lessons and come out of these challenging times a better version of myself, than when I first entered them."

ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

MEET ADRIAN & KATE

MEET ADRIAN

Adrian grew up with a bat in his hand or a ball at his feet. He’s a sports scientist, dietitian and performance nutritionist. He believes that nutrition can make or break your success; a well structured training plan loses its effectiveness when it doesn’t tie in with a considered nutrition plan.

He has a passion for sport, exercise and good food and helping others to appreciate these things too. He loves long distance running with a few ultra marathons under his belt. He’s a husband and dad of two, squeezing in a run wherever he can. Trail and time on the mountain makes him happy.

His purpose is to share the power of food, encourage people to appreciate what their bodies can do – and to enjoy the views along the way!

Kate’s genuine, empathetic energy makes her the perfect coach. She’s a great listener, offering her clients a safe space to be open, to unpack their life challenges and to work in real partnership with her towards their goals.

ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

“#JEFFchallengecompleted 45-day challenge completed ! My third challenge and this was such a goodie! The challenge was loads of fun and I have made beautiful friendships with strong woman. JEFF you really changed my view about food and replacing bad habits with great ones. Then to my amazing accountability group… YOU carried me all the way through !!! Juls Meintjes, you are the greatest motivator. Not just words but you did the work with us! “We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.” Thanks for being our inspiration. Everyone should do a challenge with you. The before pic was taken in January 2020… and the after pic (17 months later ) after the 45 day challenge (yes I am an ‘old’ Jeffer who trusts the process) ❣️❣️❣️"

CHALLENGE SUCCESS STORIES

MEET BELINDA

A previous JEFF Challenge participant

“I really feel very vulnerable posting these photos but it is important to be proud of our accomplishments and to reap the rewards and benefits. I enjoy structure and routine and I need to be motivated and driven by goals and vision. I loved every minute of this challenge. I loved the fact that we had 1.5 days to have our cheats...it felt sustainable. I lost 3 kgs, and 9cms in total. I even have guns which I haven't had before. I will definitely do the next challenge. Just in time for summer. Love you Juls"

MEET CHARMAIN

A previous JEFF Challenge participant

This challenge was just what I needed. It reinforced good food principle for me and my family. I found the educational talks enlightening and full of common sense. Thank you for strengthening what I know about eating well.   Who said healthy food had to be tasteless has never done a JEFF nutritional challenge. The food is amazing and fits so well into everyday life. Losing 2kg was just a bonus. Amazing how good you feel when you eat healthy."

If I am currently doing a Challenge, can I sign up for this round?

Which challenge should I choose?

Take the quiz below to find out which challenge aligns most with your goals.

Do I need any equipment for any of the Challenges?

All challenges are designed to be done from the comfort of your home. You will need to make a small space in your house or outside area to complete the daily exercise sessions. For a few of the challenges, additional equipment is required as listed above under the "About This Challenge" section for each challenge. The challenge workouts will include alternative exercises without any equipment except for the Strength Challenges where the equipment is required.

What will I be expected to eat during the Challenge?

You will follow a daily meal plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While we encourage you to eat in strict accordance with this daily meal plan, your nutritional guide will give you several options for breakfast, lunch and dinner that you may use to swap out meals at any time. We will also give you recipes for the meals and a weekly shopping list to make it easy for you to follow the meal plan.

Will I get Coach support and advice in these Challenges?

Each challenge lead will be guiding you through your challenge. Follow the plan that has been given to you with space for alternatives. For extra daily support and nutritional advice, you can consider our 1-on-1 Program.

What is this 7-person accountability group about?

Sticking to any plan can be tough. At JEFF, we know how important support and community is to helping you achieve those hard to reach goals.

You will be part of a 7-person accountability WhatsApp group. Either you will be allocated to one or you will pre-select your group by registering for the challenge together with a group of 7 people you already know.

Each day you will post a post-workout selfie to this group, as well as pictures of your breakfast, lunch and dinner meals. That’s it! And everyone will do this to the group to keep each other motivated and accountable to nailing the challenge requirements each and every day.

I am on the 1-on-1 Program. Can I do the Challenges?

Our industry-leading 1-on-1 Program and our Challenges are very different fitness experiences. If you are on the 1-on-1 Program you will be working with your coach over several months in an intimate 1-on-1 setting to make systemic changes to your exercise and eating that will set you up with healthy fitness habits for life. We highly recommend sticking to your 1-on-1 coaching plan and consider joining a challenge once you have completed your work with your coach. Once you have achieved your goals with your coach, we would recommend joining a Challenge to make progress towards another fitness goal you may have.

Do I need to be a JEFF Life member to join the Challenges?

Yes, you need to have an active JEFF Life subscription. Please note that subscriptions cost just R200pm (R150pm if you are on Vitality) and can be cancelled at any time. Sign up here.

What happens if I fall ill or cannot continue the Challenge?

When completing the exercises in each challenge, listen to your body and be careful. If you are not comfortable with the exercise use one of the alternative exercises provided.

If you do get injured during the challenge, or cannot complete the challenge due to circumstances out of your control, please reach out to our team at jeff.challenges@fitnessfaculty.club and we can advise you on the next steps forward.
