Am I eligible for a refund

You will receive a refund if we cancel the program, or the law requires us to refund the fee. If you are unable to participate after paying for the Challenge, you can either transfer to our next Challenge in 2021, or provide us with a medical certificate, we will refund you. A full refund is only available if you let us know in writing and provide a medical certificate before 26 March 2021. 

What is the judging criteria

There will be one male and one female winner selected from each club. To determine the winner, the final scoring will be based on 60% accumulation of points and 40% before and after measurements. All club winners in each state (QLD, VIC, NSW/ACT combined) will then go in the running to be selected for the male and female state winners based on the same judging criteria. To be eligible to be a category winner at club, state or national level, you must participate in having both your before and after photos and measurements taken and submit your Points Scorecard to the Personal Training Manager in club.

Do I need a personal trainer

If you purchased an 8 Week Challenge registration that included Personal Training, the Personal Training Manager from your club will contact you to book these sessions. It’s recommended to commence your PT sessions in week 1, and all sessions must be completed within the 8 Week Challenge period. If you purchased standard 8 Week Challenge registration without PT included, we highly recommend engaging the services of one of our Personal Trainers in club. Prices for additional PT sessions may vary.
