The Kick-Start You NEED!

The lockdown of early 2021 has certainly had its prolonged effects on many of us, especially our health.  Once healthy and active lifestyles, have been replaced by demotivated, inactive and over-indulgent lifestyles.  If Covid or lockdowns has impacted your health negatively, then Maxx Life’s ‘Ignite55’ is here to change that. 

55 Days

Monday 21 March


Saturday 14th May, 2022

Look at what our previous Ignite55 challengers achieved...

Our previous Ignite55 Challenge had 179 challengers take part.  It come at a time when motivation was at an all time low.  However, the buzz that Ignite55 created in the gym was fantastic.  

Ignite55 gave us the discipline, routine and motivation that so many of us badly needed, and in the end, together we achieved an incredible amount of amazing transformations.  The photo’s above only show a snippet of what was achieved.

8 Week Transformation Challenge

Are You Up For The Challenge?

Ignite55 is a ‘Transformation Challenge’, where participants simply try there best over 55 days to transform themselves.

A transformation can be fat loss, weight gain, or any positive change in body shape.

No Expectations!

Ignite55 has some fantastic prizes to help motivate everyone.  The winners are chosen from the ‘before & after’ photo’s supplied. 

But you don’t have to submit photo’s to enter Ignite55.  You can simply take part in the challenge, and no one has to know how well you have done, or how much weight you have lost etc. 

Your coach may expect you to train hard and eat healthy, but nothing is expected from you for the Challenge.

New Ignite55 Wristbands

Yes, the wristbands are back.  So many people will remember the old Maxx90 wristbands, that members received for completing the Maxx90 program.  The wristbands were highly sought-after, and cherished.

So now we have a special new Ignite55 wristband, that can be earned for completing the brand new Ignite55 Challenge.

“What do I have to do exactly to earn the wristband?”

We thought you’d ask that.  We’ve created a very special challenge for this Ignite55, and everyone who completes the challenge will earn themselves an Ignite55 2022 wristband.  

Too see the Wristband Challenge, press the ‘Wristband Challenge Creator’ button at the bottom of this page.


To make this Ignite55 our best yet, we’ve added 2 new prizes bringing the total to 5 prizes.  The prizes categories are as follows;

1. Overall Winner

2. Overall 2nd Winner

3. Overall 3rd Winner

4. Best Non-Weight Loss Transformation

5. Best Male Transformation

Challengers can enter for all categories, but can only win 1 prize.  E.g. if a male was to win the Overall 3rd Prize, then Best Male Transformation would be awarded to another guy.
