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!

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.

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.

CHALLENGE SUCCESS STORIES

MEET CANDICE

A previous JEFF Challenge participant

“#challengecelebration - And just like that, 45 days is up! What an amazing journey that showed me just how much I've been playing safe and playing small. This girl can do actual burpees and has graduated to 4kg weights. Hello??! I bow down to you queen Seri Kravitz for making us dig deep and ensuring we have fun the whole way.
The greatest thing I've learned is to not get stuck and make the bad days permanent - get up and keep going.

Thank Jeff for getting me unstuck and reminding me that I have full control and can show my body love and commitment."

- Candice, on her experience on a JEFF Challenge

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 LIESEL

A previous JEFF Challenge participant

“#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 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?

Yes, you can sign up for one of the new challenges.

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.

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.
