ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

MEET AMY & GREG

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. She loves training hard and thrives off the feeling you get after you have given everything you have. Outside of rugby and training she 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 GREG

Greg comes from a family of coaches and teachers. Therefore it comes as no surprise that he has grown up with a natural love for exercise and a respect for how a good coach or teacher can change lives. Having played provincial rugby and waterpolo for 5 years and coached for over 15 years, he knows the importance of an ‘all round’ approach to health – emphasizing the mental, physical and emotional.

In 2012, his own sporting career hit a major stumbling block when he had to undergo surgery. The difficult recovery process taught him patience, resilience and how important it is to listen to your body. It was during this time that Greg made the decision to set the career goal to commit to his love for health, exercise and people.

Greg has always had a huge passion for helping others reach their goals and their full potential. As such, Greg combines a nurturing, empathetic approach with huge enthusiasm and motivation.

ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

Join Amy, Greg and JEFF’s global fitness community as we tour around the United Kingdom in this 45-day virtual Challenge. There’s never been a more important time to exercise, eat well and have fun touring the beautiful UK, together!


Supported by a daily accountability group, and led by the incredible Amy and Greg, this Challenge will have you completing awesome workouts each day live or on playback as we tour our way through London, Marlow, Oxford, Bath, Bristol, Brighton and back to London! Complete 5 workouts a week and stand a chance to win awesome prizes.

Personally, he loves family time and being busy – you won’t catch Coach Louis in front of the TV… unless there’s sport on!

MEET EDGAR

As an elite South African powerlifter, Coach Edgar has a passion for strength and conditioning. This passion and experience, coupled with his background in biokinetics and Masters in Human Movement Science from Nelson Mandela University, has allowed him to train a vast array of people from different walks of life towards the goal of becoming their strongest selves, both physically and mentally.

Coach Edgar believes that everyone should have the opportunity to see and experience the beauty and power that their bodies are capable of achieving. Fitness is for everyone who is willing to work at it. It is what we were designed to do.

ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

MEET JOHNO, KATE & ADRIAN

MEET JOHNO

International sports conditioning specialist and performance coach, a powerhouse of positivity and endless energy, especially when it comes to health and fitness.

Johno’s passion for fitness began in his school days, when he discovered the power that lay in strapping on a pair of running shoes and putting in the consistent effort to transform himself from an unfit kid into a successful sportsman.

Johno has worked with South Africa’s top national sports teams, helping athletes to rehabilitate, transform and prepare themselves for significant sporting career milestones. It is through JEFF (Johno’s E-Fitness Faculty) that he has brought his true passion to life: helping everyday people to change themselves for the better, forever.

MEET ADRIAN

Adrian is 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.

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.

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.

MEET JOHNO

International sports conditioning specialist and performance coach, Johno is a powerhouse of positivity and endless energy, especially when it comes to health and fitness.

Johno’s passion for fitness began in his school days, when he discovered the power that lay in strapping on a pair of running shoes and putting in the consistent effort to transform himself from an unfit kid into a successful sportsman.

It is through Johno’s Fitness Faculty that he has brought his true passion to life: helping everyday people to change themselves for the better, forever.

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

Our two incredible athletes, Amy and Dirkie have specially designed this challenge for anyone wanting to make meaningful progress towards improved strength in just 21 days.

MEET ADRIAN

Coach 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!

ABOUT THIS CHALLENGE

Adrian’s 21-Day Eat-your-way-Lean Challenge will focus on kick-starting meaningful progress towards sustainable weight loss through optimal nutrition. This challenge includes a nutrition education series to empower you with the knowledge to make healthy choices and design healthy meals.

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 and Core & Stability Challenges where the equipment is required.

What will I be expected to eat during the 21 days?

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. If you are doing the Flow & Meditation Challenge, you will not have a 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 5-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 5-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 5 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 21-day 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?
