q. Where do I indicate AB transformation / weightloss categories when entering the challenge?

You do not need to select a category. Once the results are in we place you according to your performance. This is the case because some people are borderline between the categories.

q. Can I change my heat?

Yes, but only if you haven’t submitted your before measurements already.

q. Do I have to use a plan supplied by the ULTIMATE YOU?

Not at all. You are free to do whatever plan you wish. We offer plans merely as a guide to those that need it.

q. Are vegetarians catered for?


q. Are the eating plans geared toward weightloss only?

No, they are also suitable for growth and muscle gain.

q. What is the average weightloss per challenger?

Average weight loss is between 5kg – 8kg per person in the 8 weeks.

q. Can I do this challenge even though I am already working with a personal trainer?

Most definitely. The Challenge is a compliment to any program you are doing as a motivator to achieve an extra 10-20% results.

q. Is everything done over email or is there a place we need to physically go?

Everything is done digitally. You do not need to go anywhere physically and can essentially do the challenge from anywhere with an Internet connection.

q. How do I sign up for the Buddy Challenge? / How do I indicate who my buddy is?

When you enter your START measurements at the beginning of the challenge, you indicate who your buddy / buddies are.

q. Can I have more than one buddy?

You can have as many buddies as you like but only one pair can win. So you can enter with 4 different buddies but only the 2 strongest make off with the R10,000 Wellness Warehouse vouchers to spend

q. Does each buddy have to pay the entry fee?

Yes. Each person enters as an individual. The buddy challenge is a bonus for challenge entrants.

q. Can you wear alternative clothing in the photos such as sports bra and cycling shorts?

Yes. Just bear in mind things like sports bras and cycling shorts vary quite a lot. It is important to keep in mind that the more clothing covers up your body, the harder it is for judges to accurately gauge your before/after progress and the less likely you are to be selected as a finalist. When scrolling through hundreds of entries, the winners will usually clearly stand out and be easily seen. If your choice of clothing prevents this from happening then that is your loss.

q. Who sees my pictures?

Once you submit your pictures, they are approved by ULTIMATE YOU HQ and then kept safe and secure. Once the challenge is complete, you submit your after pictures and these are then viewed by the judging panel. Your photos will NEVER be published unless you make it into our top 5 per category. Weight-loss winners are shown clothed and AB winners are shown in swimming trunks or bikini.

q. When must we submit our “before” photos and measurements?

Photos and measurements can be submitted on the Sunday/Monday/Tuesday of your Heat start date. You have a 72 hr window to find a time that is convenient for you. If you are due to start on Monday the 19th , then you can submit on the 18th, 19th, or  20th for example.

Same applies for all other submissions such as day 14/28/42 check-ins and your “AFTER” photos and measurements – you have a 1 day, 24hr  grace period on each side of the submission date.
