We do not recommend following the Challenge exercise plan or meal plans whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. During pregnancy and shortly after your body may experience high levels of the hormone relaxin which relaxes the ligaments in the pelvis preparing the body for childbirth. Your body can experience more range in flexibility due to this and it is important not to over stretch the ligaments. Also generally, our classes are not designed for pregnant women. We do offer Slow and Meditation Classes, which are less intensive, which may be more suitable for pregnancy. Power & Hot Vinyasa increases your heart rate during your practice and it can be unsafe to practise during pregnancy. It is important to consult your medical practitioner prior to practising during pregnancy. Our classes can be very busy and often the instructor is not able to get around to all students to help modify their practice so it is important to keep this in mind. Likewise dieting to lose weight during pregnancy can be hazardous to you and your baby, especially since a weight loss regimen may restrict important nutrients such as iron, folic acid, and other important vitamins and minerals.
You can still participate in the challenge without being on social, but you may miss the majority of motivational tips and benefits.

Upon entry, you will be allocated a Peak Performance Coach who will work with you to assess your goals and intentions for the 6 week challenge program. Each goal may be individually different. Our PPC coaches will do a complete health and fitness assessment which takes approx. 30 mins. The assessments will be a combination of data tracking assessments, discussion, support and guidance to keep you on track during your 6 weeks. There are 3 1:1 PPC assessments required during the Challenge which your PPC will work with you to find a suitable time to attend.
If you do not wish to participate in the assessments, no problem. You will not be eligible for the prize— but you will still get all of the other benefits.
The Challenge is not just about weight loss. There are a number of other benefits including reduced stress, increase in flexibility and strength, improved confidence & productivity. There will be plenty of support, motivation and education provided for all who wish to participate.
You will be provided with a recommended eating plan for the Challenge which is NOT based on extreme calorie restriction. Instead, you will be given support and guidance, tools and motivation to create healthy habits towards food and an eating plan based on your goals and lifestyle.
The combination of the sessions, personal coaches, meal plans, progress tracking, recipes and coaching will give you more than $2k worth of tools to help you reach your goals.
Whilst we recommend for members to avoid caffeine in the Challenge, herbal teas such as peppermint, liquorice and chamomile are great caffeine-free substitutes. If you are a really struggling during this phase, we recommend consuming green tea, which although contains some caffeine, is also high in antioxidants. If a member chooses to continue including caffeine during this phase, we recommend only one black coffee or small coffee prepared on a nut-based milk per day. This will not hinder their results as long as they remain in a calorie deficit and continue to follow the Challenge meal plans.
Your stats will be recorded by your PPC coach during your 1:1 assessment and stored privately internally.
We recommend that members avoid alcohol for the entire 6-week Challenge period. Alcohol contains empty calories as it contains no nutritional benefits and can be high in sugar. If you choose to have a social drink during the Challenge, then we recommend a glass of clear spirit with soda water/mineral water.
