The Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge Explained

Untitled design

Something really cool happened yesterday!

Earlier this year right before the New Year Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge launched, Eric sent out an email to explain how the challenge worked.

In that email, he put in a whole bunch of screenshots of excited community members making posts on Facebook showing their excitement for the upcoming challenge.

The very first screenshot he used was this one:

Now the cool thing is that Ciska actually won R10,000 yesterday!

What started out as an excited Facebook post earlier this year turned into her winning the Women’s % Weight Loss category!

(You can read her full post on Facebook here.)

Anyways, we thought that was pretty cool and just wanted to share that with you.

Right now, Sleekgeeks are:

  • Discussing which “heat” they’re going to do (there’s 4).
     
  • Recruiting team members for their teams and houses.
     
  • Looking for fellow Sleekgeeks to buddy up with.
     
  • Convincing their significant other to join them.
     
  • Anxiously awaiting the announcement of the new prizes up for grabs.
     
  • And figuring out where they want to be in the next 8 weeks.

Although we do have a LOT of information on the Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge page we still find that a lot of Sleekgeeks don’t quite understand what all the fuss is about and end up missing out.

So, we are going to try and explain it a bit more below.

If there’s one thing you need to know right now, it’s that if you take 10 seconds to put your name on the VIP Wait List (it’s free) you’ll save R200 off your entry when entries open on the 28th of May!.

The Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge has been a staple tradition in the Sleekgeek Community since 2012, so we’ve tried to make it as simple as possible over the years.

πŸ‘Œ How it works is easy!

You put some skin in the game by buying an entry into the challenge, which gets you to a wide variety of exercise and nutrition plans along with a bunch of powerful resources to help you get from Point A to Point B over 8 weeks.

There’s toolkits, printables, videos, email series, bonus resources, expert tips, and an accountability check-in system!

We also provide you with the 🎯 focus, πŸ’ͺ support, and πŸ“ˆ motivation that you need to stay on track and achieve amazing results over the 8 weeks.

The winners then walk away with some incredible prizes worth R100,000!

But something I would really like to highlight is that the average weight loss over each 8-week challenge is consistently 5kgs+ per person.

For Elan and Eric at Sleekgeek, this challenge is so much more than whether you place 1st or 2nd and win a prize… The REAL reason that they put so much effort into each and every challenge is because of how many people it helps get started. It’s a fantastic way to get out of overthinking everything and just take action – plus we help you do it right every step of the way.


We designed the Sleekgeek’s 8-Week Challenge to have flexible starting dates.

We know real life can be 😱 HECTIC and you should be able to choose to start ⏰ when it best suits you.

If you are eager to enter and ready to lose weight, pack on muscle, or just start living a healthier life then you can choose from 4 different starting dates (called “Heats”).

Each heat starts on a consecutive Monday:

βœ… Heat 1: 03 June

βœ… Heat 2: 10 June

βœ… Heat 3: 17 June

βœ… Heat 4: 24 June

Remember… “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.”

There will ❌ NEVER be a “perfect time”, so don’t delay for too long.

Taking forward action, even if it’s not perfect, towards your goals is 10 times better than waiting for the perfect moment to start but never actually getting started.

Once challenge entries open on the 28th of May, you can buy your entry and then only select a start date a bit later – but at least then you have made a commitment and secured your spot in the challenge before entries close.


You may still be unsure about who this challenge is actually for and whether it’s right for you…

Sleekgeek’s 8-Week Challenge is for REAL PEOPLE looking for REAL RESULTS.

There is no ❌ photoshop, ❌ magic supplements, or ❌ “Get results in just 3 days” kind of promises involved!

To date, we have run 23 Sleekgeek Challenges, helping over 18,000 challengers lose more than 21 tonnes of weight!

If you are a βœ… real person looking for βœ… real results, then this is for you. We have something for everyone, no matter your needs and capabilities.

Our goal is to βœ… help you get started, βœ… keep you going, and βœ… reward you for your progress.


You should also know that Sleekgeek’s 8-Week Challenge has 4 different categories:

βœ… Ladies weight loss

βœ… Ladies transformation

βœ… Mens weight loss

βœ… Mens transformation.

You get to compete in the category that best suits you.

(For those who have entered our previous challenges, know that we have now changed the way that we judge the weight loss categories from TOTAL BODYWEIGHT LOST to PERCENTAGE OF BODYWEIGHT LOST as it was voted fairer by the community.)


We have so much more to tell you so Eric has made a post on Facebook that you can leave a comment on with any question that you might have.
