Q & A – Nicole Solomon


Here’s a quick Q&A with Nicole Solomon who came 2nd in the women’s weight loss category in the latest 8-week Ultimate You Challenge.

  • Give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.

My weight loss journey has been the proverbial yoyo. I shed, I pick up, I shed, I pick up.

  • What prompted you to join the ULTIMATE YOU Transformation Challenge?

I won a free entry because the team I was on won a free entry.

  • Give us a quick overview of the nutrition and eating plan that you followed during the challenge.

Being a vegan, my diet was loads of fruit, vegetables, almond milk, almond yoghurt and Quorn meat substitutes. Green tea and water, water, water!

  • Give us a quick overview of the training and exercise plan that you followed during the challenge.

Exercise was fun for me in this challenge. I did loads of cardio and weight training.

  • If you could give 3 pieces of advice to future challengers, what would they be?

Food prep, time management and being accountable to the team I were the most important parts of helping me stay focused on this challenge.

  • What did you find most valuable about your experience? 

The love and support shown of the ladies on team Sassybysummer was by far the most valuable part of this challenge. I love being part of a team. It’s so motivating having 20 women wanting the very best for each other. I loved this challenge, even the hard days were good. Winter UYC, I’m coming for you!
