Sleekgeek 8-Week Challenge: Terms and Conditions

(Last updated 21 Jan 2024) 

Entry criteria and rules

In order to qualify to win a prize in the SLEEKGEEK 8-WEEK TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE you must do the following:

  • Complete the official registration form
  • Make payment of your full challenge entry fee
  • Submit your “before” photos and measurements accurately as instructed at start date of your challenge
  • Complete an 8-week Challenge during the HEAT period of your choice.
  • Submit all required “Check-ins” during the challenge. 
  • Submit your “after” photos and measurements on the final day of your 8-week challenge.
  • Photo and measurement submissions must meet the stipulated requirements for consideration. 
  • At your start and end dates of the challenge measurement and photo submissions may be made from Sunday morning to Midnight on Tuesday of the start date.
  • Sleekgeek takes no responsibility for lost or unsuccessfully submitted information. We may check submissions as a courtesy but the responsibility of meeting judging requirements rests with the challenger. 
  • The onus is entirely on the challenger to submit all required information during the challenge, most importantly the “After Photos and Measurements” requirements detailed below. 

Submission of After Photos and Measurements

As a participant in the 8-Week Challenge a strict requirement in the Competition Terms and Conditions for eligibility for prizes and rankings is the correct submission of your After Photos and After Measurements. Please follow these guidelines carefully to avoid disappointment:

1. Submission of After Photos:

  • Step 1: Submit your After Photos as directed over here.
  • Step 2: Await an immediate email confirmation acknowledging the receipt of your photos.
  • Step 3: Later, you will receive a second email confirming whether your photos have been approved or not. If not, you will be asked to re-submit with corrections, after which you will receive an approval email.

2. Submission of After Measurements:

  • Step 1: Submit your After Measurements in the designated area over here.
  • Step 2: Once you have clicked “Submit” you must see an on-screen confirmation message saying “Congratulations! If you are seeing this message then we have your data safe and sound.”
  • Step 3: You will receive an email with the subject line “Sleekgeek Challenge After Measurements Confirmation” to confirmation that your data submission process is complete.

NB: IF Step 2 and 3 did not happen successfully then something went wrong and your submission was not successful. Try again or please contact us via help@sleekgeek.co.za

Please Note:

  • Photo and Measurements are two separate submission processes. The data is not linked in our system –  and so it’s imperative to complete both to qualify for prizes and rankings.
  • Keep an eye out for those confirmations. If you do not receive them, your submission may not be complete.
  • In case of any issues or lack of confirmation, contact our support team via help@sleekgeek.co.za immediately to ensure your submission is in order.

Stay Compliant, Stay Competitive! Your adherence to these guidelines ensures your hard work is recognised and keeps you in the running for the challenge rewards.

How are results judged?

  • A diverse panel of skilled judges will select winners based on a qualitative and quantitative assessment.
  • Judges reserve the right to abstain from voting for a candidate should they believe for any reason that the results were achieved in a manner not in the spirit of the challenge or falsified. This includes a result that would be deemed “not believable” or “possible” by a reasonable person.
  • “Weight loss” is judged by PERCENTAGE OF BODY WEIGHT LOST rounded off to 2 decimal points and verified with photo submissions. (For example if you weigh 100kgs and you lose 10kgs then you lost 10,00% of your body weight.) 
  • “Transformation” is judged by a person’s progress and change from their Start point “A” to end point “B”. Judges decide who they believe had to do the most work in the 8-Week period. This is judged via visual change and measurements. 
  • Judges’ decisions are absolutely final and no discussion on results will be entered into. Non negotiable.
  • Challengers can only place in one individual category where they place best. 
  • The staff of the organisers and their sponsors do not interfere with the results during the judging process and cannot be held accountable.
  • [NEW] If a competitor reports a loss of weight over 8 weeks that does not seem reasonable and is not evidenced by convincing before/after photos to support the claim we reserve the right to consult our panel of expert judges to vote on whether the submission is accepted or not.

Buddy Challenge

  • Buddy Pairs (Teams) can be made of any 2 people of any gender across any of the categories.
  • Buddies have to first enter and pay as individual competitors.
  • A person may participate in a maximum of 3 BUDDY teams for the competition. So, you are free to partner with a few friends, but only on a 1-1 basis. A team can only be 2 people.
  • Your Buddy may participate in any Heat number.
  • If a Buddy Team does not have 2 members making the top 10 in their respective category they are not in the running.
  • Couples must enter the couples challenge. – you cannot be a Buddy if you are someone’s romantic partner. 
  • If 2 or more teams tie the prize will be split between the winning Buddy teams.

Couple’s Challenge

  • Discounted couples rates are only offered as a discount of full entry rates.
  • Teams can be made of any 2 people of any gender across any of the categories who are in a committed relationship.
  • Your partner must participate in the same Heat number as you.
  • In the case of a dead tie the decision will go to the independent judging panel.
  • If a couple does not have 2 members making the top 10 in their respective category they are not in the running.
  • If no couples make it to the top 10 of their respective categories the prizes will be deferred to the next challenge. 
  • If 2 or more teams tie the prize will be split between the winning Couples teams.

Repeat Winners 

  • Top 5 % Weight Loss Winners cannot place as a winner if they have gained back more than 50% of the weight they lost in their most recent challenge unless it’s been more than 12 months. (e.g. if someone loses 20kgs, they can’t place as a winner if they have gained back more than 10kgs subsequently).
  • If a challenger does not make this 50% threshold they may still choose to participate in a Challenge and contribute to their team score but not place for prizes or appear in the Top 50 % Weight Loss or any other leaderboards.

Permissions

  • Challengers grant THE SLEEKGEEK 8-WEEK TRANSFORMATION CHALLENGE the right to use all submission materials for winner results announcements.
  • If a challenger wishes to opt out of their results being displayed to the public they should not submit their final “After” photos. As a result they cannot place for results announcements or prizes.

Money back guarantee

To qualify for our 100% money back refund you agree to show that you made some effort to make the relationship work.

We also ask that you exercise some fairness towards both parties in your consideration. We never want to take your money unfairly but we also run a business and have to pay staff members.

In the end we can never guarantee results because different people’s bodies change at different rates. We can also not physically do the work for you either. We can provide a framework for people to achieve results. Which we do without fail every challenge.

To qualify for the refund we require that:

  • You must complete all submissions in the 8-Week process to prove that you have made an effort.
  • You do not request a refund unless you genuinely believe that what was explicitly offered in our marketing materials was not delivered.
