From February to April 2022, we had challengers across Australia at 11 health clubs, journey to a better place in their health and fitness journey.
We have over 1000 entries competing for the national jackpot of $1000 cash as well as a free 12-month membership for individual club winners.
Congratulations to our National female winner, Kylie from Essendon who lost 9.0kg and 6.9% in body fat and our National male winner, Stephen from Belmont who lost 12.1kg and 3.1% in body fat! Here’s what they had to say about their journey.
Stephen: The challenge encouraged me to focus on my diet and the group classes really helped increase my fitness. I feel I have much more energy to keep up with my kids and have fun with them. I have never stuck out anything like this before and I am blown away with my results. I have lost 12kgs in just 8 weeks and I am so happy with that I am going to keep up my new healthy lifestyle habits.
Kylie: In mid-Jan 2022 I was 20kg overweight and decided it was time to move it. With no exercise in over 10 years I started gently with some classes, and worked out a weights program. The challenge came along at the right time because I’d already lost 5kgs and was keen to smash out the rest. It’s given me good drive, focus and determination. I cut out all bread, sugar and alcohol and reduced my daily calories. I’m now down 15kgs and 2 dress sizes, feeling fantastic and have tons of energy to keep burning.
A huge shout out to our site winners who won a free 12-month membership:
Catherine, our overall female winner who lost 5.3kg and 3.6% in body fat and Shane, our overall male winner who lost 6kg and 3.6% in body fat! See what they had to say about their journeys below.
“[i] have always struggled in my adulthood with maintaining a healthy weight range. As someone who loves a beer and a parma a little too much, I eventually decided enough was enough and I pushed myself to get a gym membership at Bayfit.
When I saw there was a challenge happening I thought “why not, what have I got to lose” … I pushed myself really hard with daily (sometimes twice a day) cardio and weight training sessions and I adjusted my eating and drinking habits dramatically which was hard at first but I persevered and ended up losing a lot of weight and felt incredible… The staff at Bayfit helped me out along the way by showing me the correct techniques with the weight equipment. I didn’t think I had a chance of winning, but figured the challenge itself would be the win if I was to get to my goal weight range, which I did!
The most satisfying thing for me was seeing my cardio increase, pushing myself harder every time I hopped on the treadmill was really satisfying and I ended up being able to run for long periods of time which I have never been able to do. Thanks to the Bayfit team for all the help, greatly appreciated.”
“It’s pushed me to start my weight loss journey which I’ve been putting off for months. I definitely feel fitter and healthier – regardless of the number on the scales.”
Congratulations to all our members who participated in the challenge!
