💪 8-Week Body Transformation Challenge! 🥗

Q&A with Francois Hugo:

We sat down with Francois who placed fourth in the Men’s Weight Loss category of our Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge. We wanted to find out the secret to his success and he was happy to share it with us.

Please give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.

The 6 months before the Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge was devastating and hard for me. Firstly, I suffered a lot of financial loss because of an injury and couldn’t perform optimally anymore. Secondly, I started to believe that I am “NOT” the same man anymore. I needed to rely more on loved ones and people around me. This caused emotional eating during this period, and I stopped caring. I consumed more beer instead of hard liquor and this also contributed to the weight gain. Added to this I complained every day and gave off negative energy.

What prompted you to join the Sleekgeek Transformation Challenge?

My fiancé told me about the Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge and that we needed to do something about our eating habits and our general health conditions. We joined Heat 4 of the Challenge which started on 27 February 2023. I read up about Sleekgeek a bit and I understood that the only person who could help me here is MYSELF secondly if I continued like this, I would regret it in 10 years.

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

Calorie counting and exercise.

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

My plan was, (me and my Crocs) to step in front of my mirror in the lounge daily to see how I can improve my steps and rhythm because I could not walk on the road. Within one week I slowly started seeing improvement in my overall health, especially my energy levels. I pushed myself hard every day, bearing in mind that I could previously not walk 500m continuously. When I started to see significant changes in my overall behaviour, I was on “auto-pilot”.

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

Week by week build up, I planned weekly.
