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 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?

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.
