About this challenge

Summer is officially here, which means it’s time to shed those layers and wave goodbye to those stubborn winter pounds with my 8-Week Shredded Summer 4.0 Challenge! This is so much more than just a weight loss challenge. This is your chance to make a complete transformation from head to toe, with me pushing you beyond your limits the entire way. The workouts won’t be easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is. So, take this time to prioritize yourself, invest in your well-being, and dig deep to find that mental and physical toughness within yourself.

Here's the best part: as long as you commit to this journey, stay the course for the next 8 weeks, and give it your all, you are already a winner. This is about more than just numbers on a scale; it's about embracing a new mindset and a newfound confidence that will carry you far beyond these 8 weeks.

Do you have what it takes?

I think the challenge being focused around habits was a huge driving force for me. I picked a few things I know were holding me back like eating out and drinking. After the first few workouts I felt like I...

📸 How to take before and after photos


Submit your BEFORE pictures no later than June 19 at 11:59pm MDT. Make sure you use this challenge sheet (highly recommended) or hand write it yourself. Make sure to submit front, back & side photos! Keep your BEFORE photos because you will need them for your final submission.

Submit your FINAL SUBMISSION photos by August 14 at 11:59pm MDT. For your final submission photos, you will download any pic collage app and you will put your BEFORE and AFTER photos side by side (see example*). Both front pose together, both side pose together, and both back pose together. In both the before and after you need to hold the challenge sheet or post it on the wall behind you. The challenge sheet MUST include your name, current date, and current weight.

Optional, but highly recommended: Use this sheet for your photos.

Tips for taking progress pictures:

  • 1

    Full Body (head to toes in full frame). DO NOT take photos in mirrors. Have someone else take them or get a tripod. The more seriously you take these, the more helpful they will be to you!

  • 2

    Use the same pose. Must have front, side, and rear full body pose. Do the same exact pose for your before photo and your after photo. You can’t compare a relaxed pose to a flexing pose, not the same.

    -Front Pose: stand relaxed with arms at your sides

    -Side Pose: turn directly to the side with arms raise straight out in front or at your side (your choice)

    -Back Pose: stand relaxed with arms at your sides

    *Optional: Your Best Pose: You may choose to do a flexing photo for this. Either front double bicep or back double bicep. To show off your hard work.

  • 3

    Take your photos at the same time of day. Do them first thing in the morning so you have no variables and you can really judge your progress weekly

  • 4

    Take your photos in the same location, with the same lighting, and a clutter free background. Lighting is most important. Taking your photos at the gym under fluorescent lights is going to look very different than taking them at home in natural light. Find a nice natural light that is NOT too drastic. Natural light will give you more honest results. Find a plain blank wall in your house and always stand in the same exact location.

  • 5

    Wear the same outfit. Wearing the same outfit is helpful because when your body actually starts transforming, that outfit will start fitting you differently which can be a great tool!

    -Females: bathing suit or sport bra and shorts

    -Males: shirtless and shorts

  • 6

    Download a collage app. Compare your pictures side by side utilizing a collage app weekly to check on your progress. Put your oldest photo to the left and your newest photo to the right in the same poses to really clearly see your progress. You will need to have a collage app for the final submissions.
