GetFit Morningside – 12 Week Challenge Diary Weeks 1/2

After completing the GetFit Morningside 6 week challenge two months back, I had awesome results in such a short period of time, so much so that I decided to dive right into the 12 week challenge! Being a sucker for punishment, I am as determined as ever to win the competition and this time my wife has decided to join me! Just a recap in terms of the challenge:

“The GETFIT Challenge has grown from strength to strength since its inception in 2008 and its participants have achieved some fantastic results, including improved fitness levels, body toning, muscle strength and weight loss.

The Challenge runs for a 12-week period, during which time participants attend a 1-hour group training session once, twice or three times a week. The sessions include a combination of cardio and weight training exercises aimed at increasing fitness levels and improving muscle strength or tone. The sessions are run by personal trainers who monitor correct form and encourage participants to ensure optimum results are achieved. The group training sessions are a great way to stay motivated and maintain high levels of enthusiasm!”

Technically we are now 2 weeks in and as my job requires a bit of travel, I had to cram and catch up a few sessions. The amazing thing is that after the first two sessions, it felt like I hadn’t even taken a break! The most intense session to date was the SWEAT 1000, which incorporates a myriad of different exercise in your hour long session, culminating in a total of 1000 repetitions.

Saturday was also a monster session with an upper body and lower body split. Definitely worth it though as it jump started my weekend!

Here’s a little snapshot of my initial weigh in results:
