    Yes I have in the past, I have found them very beneficial.

    I would work out 6 days per week whilst on a challenge. Not necessarily always at the gym. Home work outs can also do the trick, but definitely making an effort to exercise for at least 30-60mins 6 times per week.

    The first challenge I ever did I lost 14kg in the 12 weeks.

    What gym are you doing the challenge with? If anything like the challenges I have done, you will have to have one personal training session per week, there's also normally one group training session per week, and/or a seminar or something. Other than that it's up to you and your trainer, but 6 days per week of exercise is generally the go, and your trainer should also give you a food plan and/or have you write a food diary etc.

    Not a gym one but I started the Kayla Itsines 12 weeks body challenge before and after my wedding. I found that in such a short time (and I wasnt really doing the weeks properly or following her meal plan thingy) my body strengthened and toned itself dramatically. I stopped shortly after my wedding because I fell pregnant/morning sickness/no energy. I cant wait to start it again after bub arrives though.
