About the competition
The Get Lean, Get Strong Challenge 2016 is a fitness competition that challenged 10 participants to lose as much weight as they could.
Under the supervision of trainer David Devito, contestants went through an intensive six-month training regime worth $5,000.
This consisted of one-hour classes at least twice a week at Mr Devito's gym, The Fitness Protocol.
Besides focusing on cardiovascular exercises such as running, Mr Devito's methods also placed a strong emphasis on technique. The exercises featured the use of kettlebells.
Participants had to watch what they ate and adhere to a strict diet that Mr Devito and his team planned and monitored.
The winner will get prizes worth $6,100.
There are also prizes for the second- and third-placed contestants, and consolation prizes for the remaining contestants.
