Other FAQ'S

How do I join?

Subscribe here to join the challenge.


How much does it cost to enter?

£15 per month which you can cancel (3 days prior to your renewal date) by emailing

Is this open worldwide?


What happens if I join after the start date?

You can join at any time of the challenge however, the end date to enter your final transformation pics will remain the same so you will have a shorter time to complete the challenge to be considered for the prize money. However, all the challenge content will remain on the private IG page so you can redo any classes in your own time. 


If you do join the challenge late, I recommend starting with the current timetable as opposed to starting right from the beginning, but it is totally up to you!

How will the winners be chosen?

The winners will be chosen based on the best before vs after pictures. Secondary considerations are your consistency which I can see by your tagged IG stories post workout and your weekly accountability sheets.


How do I get a personalised meal plan?

Click the link here to purchase your meal plan and fill out the form. Depending on demand, it can take up to 24 hours to create your personalised so I recommend purchasing it in advance of the challenge so you can do your weekly food shop before we start. There will be a discount for all Bodied By XO Online Gym members so keep an eye out for this on the IG page!


How do I work out how much to eat according to my goals? 

Please read this blog post here  'How to workout how many calories to consume for your goals' which explains how to work this out. If you purchase a personalised meal plan, this is worked out for you and all your meal options are calculated according to your goals. We do the hard work for you!


I can see that we are encouraged to tag @xtinaokenla and @bodiedbyxo_onlinegym in our post workout pics but I am shy!

You don’t have to do this, however this is the only way that I can see how you are getting on and it is a great way to hold yourself accountable and motivate others! It doesn’t have to be a selfie, it can be a picture of your workout equipment or a pic of the class from your phone screen, be creative. 


I have an injury, can I still join?

Yes, you can but this will be at your own risk. Please be sensible and avoid any exercises that aggravate your injury. I provide modifications for a lot of exercises, but it is advised you consult with a professional before committing. 

4-5 workouts a week 

These can be any workouts that you choose, sometimes, there will be 2 workouts a day on the timetable, you do not have to complete them both. 

Each day will focus on a specific body area. 

Eat according to your goals

In this challenge, choose your own goal.

7k steps per day 

Getting enough daily steps will help with your cardiovascular health and also help you to get some fresh air, especially if you are working form home. If you don't have a tracker to track your steps, then aim for a 20 min walk each day/ dancing /15 mins of skipping. 

Focus on a new habit at least 1 day a week 

Choose a new habit to focus on for this challenge and aim to practise this new habit at least once a week throughout the challenge. It could be reading a book or meditation, or no social media on Sundays. You decide!
