The Original GetFIT Challenge

Gym from only



9 March 2020



My 1st exposure to the GETFIT Challenge was in 2009 when I was 43. At that stage it was run by Denver and Neil out of the Westville Virgin Active. During my first challenge I managed to lose 18kg and about 13% body fat. 10 years on and after a couple of joint ops, as a result of ware and tare from sports in my youth, I had sadly put on the kilograms that I had managed to keep off so well, while following the GETFIT eating plan and exercise programme. My excuses were that my joints hurt and I was getting older. In reality, without a proper exercise programme, it is easy to eat badly and become lazy and as a result your body weight increases and your joins take more strain than they should. In November 2018, with the encouragement of Sarah (my wife) we took up a GETFIT “Black Friday” special and signed up for the challenge starting at the end of January 2019. What was really good was that Sarah was going to do the challenge with me so I had no excuses. Although very similar in many ways to the challenges I did 10 years ago, Denver, Paul and their team have fine-tuned the exercise programme, as well as the eating plan. Sarah had never done any form of gym work, so she was quite apprehensive. With the guidance of Denver and Paul, she quickly learnt to find her way around the many different challenges that each session presented us with. Although tough, it was amazing the progress we both made within in the first 2 weeks. One of the things that I realised by doing the challenge with Sarah, was that GETFIT is not just about weight loss. Sarah had been concerned, that on the scale she was not losing weight, (not that she needed to) while my weight was dropping weekly. At the end of 12 weeks, however, the body assessment told the true story and although on the scale Sarah’s weight had increased by nearly 2kgs she had lost 8% body fat. I had managed to lose 15kg and 13% body fat. Many of the aches and pains that had prevented me from starting an earlier challenge had disappeared and both Sarah and I have noticed a marked increase in our general strength and energy levels. We have had a huge amount of fun doing GETFIT and have met super people that have made waking up early that much easier. The enthusiasm and attention to detail that Denver still has after more than 10 years running GETFIT is amazing. Thank you to Denver, Paul and your team, for helping us to achieve our goals. We have enjoyed the GETFIT way of life so much that we have continued on the VIP programme. I would encourage anyone wanting to transform their bodies and increase their energy levels, to give it a go.
