 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.

Who Can Register

The 8 Week Challenge commences 26 March, 2021 and is available to current Fitness First members, staff, franchisees and contractors only. Non Members can register for the program by signing on with the non-member registration package that includes 8 Weeks home club membership. You must be at least 16 years of age before registering in the 8 Week Challenge. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign your registration Pre-Exercise Questionnaire and Consent forms on your behalf. Fitness First staff, contractors and franchisees are allowed to enter a staff category only and are not eligible for any of the member prizes. Participants must not use any performance enhancing supplements or strength enhancing drugs. Submission of an entry form in the 8 Week Challenge constitutes your acceptance of these rules, regulations, policies and registration.

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. 

What are the competition rules

Fitness First reserves the right to interpret the rules and, where necessary, to amend the rules at its sole discretion and without notice to the individual competitors. Rules and regulations of the judging criteria, terms and conditions and exercise rules must be followed. Failure to do so could result in disqualification from judging and cancellation of your challenge entry. Rule interpretations and all judging decisions are final. All information and materials submitted by entrants into the 8 Week Challenge become the sole and exclusive property of Fitness First. All entrants’ details will remain confidential and will not be disclosed without written permission.

What if I cannot attend the group training sessions

If you are genuinely unable to participate in the group training sessions due to inflexible work or personal commitments, you are able to participate in one of the Group Fitness classes offered at your club. If this alternate option suits your requirements, you will need to obtain a signature confirming your attendance by the Group Fitness instructor. All challenge competitors must attend all measurement sessions as set out in the Challenger Guide. You can attend any Challenge group training sessions at any Fitness First club included in your membership.

If you are unable to attend the first measurement date at your nominated club it will be rescheduled at the convenience of your club Personal Training Manager to ensure your measurements are recorded for appropriate tracking. 

What is included

Your Challenge registration includes exclusive weekly group workouts, and a training and nutrition plan for the duration of the 8 week program. Training and nutrition plans are located in the challenge portal. Registration includes before and after measurements, fitness testing, mid way mega workout, weekly EDM’s and end of challenge event. You will also receive access to our closed Facebook group to support you through your journey.

What results can I expect

As individuals differ, so do their results, even when using the same program. We cannot guarantee an individual's results as a result of participation in the 8 Week Challenge program. Training outcomes may include, but are not limited to fat loss, building lean muscle, and improvements in strength, performance, mobility, endurance and mental clarity.

The 8 Week Challenge is suitable for beginners, intermediate or advanced members who are looking to transform their body and their life, need extra support and guidance with their training and nutrition, want to create healthy habits, want to be part of a community of like minded people, want to lose weight, build strength, build lean muscle, improve performance and improve mobility, have plateaued, become bored with their program or simply lost their way. Participants must be over the age of 16. Anyone under 18 must obtain parental consent.

8 Week Challenge workouts are designed by qualified Personal Trainers and are general in nature. The nutrition and meal plans are nutritionist approved, and are general in nature. We recommend consulting a dietitian or nutritionist for any specific nutrition needs you may have.
