We are thrilled to release the winners of Sleekgeek’s Summer 2016 ULTIMATE YOU 8-Week Challenge! This is our 16th Sleekgeek challenge to date (we do 3 per year).
Each of our challengers worked incredibly hard to achieve impressive results throughout their 8-week challenge period and our judges really had their work cut out for them to come up with our top winners.
We always like to compare our current challenge results with previous challenge results to make sure that Sleekgeek’s challenges are constantly improving and helping people transform their lives.
So, here are some quick stats:
- We had 497 challengers submit their finals results, losing a total of 2,713.1kgs and an average of 5.5kgs per person!
- In our previous Winter 2016 Challenge we had 279 people submitted their final results, losing a total of 1,510kgs and an average of 5.4kgs per person.
- Our top 50 weight loss candidates (full list at the bottom of this page) lost a combined 777.9kgs with an average of 15.6kgs per person!
- In our previous Winter 2016 Challenge our top 50 weight loss candidates lost a combined 630kgs with an average of 12.5kgs per person.
All of those who submitted final results are that much closer to becoming the Ultimate You – isn’t it time you gave it a go?
So, a huge round of applause to our top 20 challengers who walk away with awesome prizes (pictured below) as well as bragging rights in our Summer Challenge of 2016! And, of course, a massive thanks to our awesome prize sponsors!
A quick reminder that we have 4 categories to ensure fair competition: Men’s transformation, women’s transformation, men’s weight loss, and women’s weight loss.
Transformation is judged by our independent panel of judges who give their time so generously to make all decisions on winners via an audited process. Sleekgeek and its staff are not involved in the final decision-making and we accept the judges’ decisions as final.
Weight loss is judged purely by kilograms lost based on before and after measurements submitted and confirmed by before and after photos (which include a photo of their measurement on the scale).
