The Sweat Challenge Is Back With Four New Programs
If you're ready to kickstart your health and fitness journey, or you're simply looking to step up your fitness, taking part in the Sweat Challenge is a great way to solidify healthy habits and smash your health and fitness goals.
This June, Sweat is launching 16 six-week fitness programs exclusive to the Sweat App with a variety of challenge programs to choose from. Whether you're just starting out or looking to push yourself, prefer working out at home or in the gym, there's a Sweat Challenge program to suit everyone.
Join the incredible Sweat Community and work out with Sweat's world-class trainers with fitness programs designed by women, for women to help you stay consistent, motivated and make a positive change.
Registration is open from Monday, 6 June until Monday, 4 July and the Sweat Challenge will start on Monday, 20 June and runs until Sunday, 31 July.
Who is the Sweat Challenge for?
The Sweat Challenge is for any woman who wants to recommit to her health and fitness or level up her training, regardless of fitness level.
You can choose from 16 different programs across a range of training styles including HIIT, strength, low impact and barre.
There are options available if you want to train at home or in the gym, with no equipment, using just your bodyweight, or if you prefer to follow workouts that use home gym equipment.
Worried you won't have time to fit it all in? Don't worry, there are programs that include weekly express workouts you can do in less than 15 minutes and Head Trainer Kayla Itsines' NEW Strength & HIIT Challenge program, which is designed for women who are short on time.
No matter what time or equipment you have available, there’s a program for you and your chosen Sweat Trainer will be by your side every step of the way.

How does the Sweat Challenge work?
On the first day of the Sweat Challenge, you’ll see your exclusive weekly workouts for that week that include:
- Your weekly workout options and goals for the week
- Low-intensity cardio sessions
- Express and bonus workouts
- Recovery sessions and scheduled rest days
The Sweat Challenge is designed to help you move your body, stay motivated and active with at least one workout each week over the six weeks.
How you choose to Sweat is up to you with workouts you can do anywhere, anytime. At the start of each week, schedule your workouts using the Planner and sync it with your calendar to be reminded when it’s time to work out.
Make sure you’ve turned on push notifications to get scheduled reminders and motivation throughout the challenge.
Each week, you’ll complete your set workouts, cardio and recovery sessions but if you miss a workout here and there, don’t let that discourage you — you’ll still progress through the Sweat Challenge with everyone else.
Almost 130,000 women from 199 countries took part in the last Sweat Challenge, completing over 1.3 MILLION workouts!
Remember to use the hashtag #SweatChallenge on Instagram to see what the Sweat Community is up to and share your own sweaty selfies and personal highlights along the way.
What if you miss the start of the Sweat Challenge?
The Sweat Challenge will only be available from Monday, 20 June until Sunday, 31 July — so make sure you join before the Sweat Challenge begins to get the most out of it!
However, if you’ve missed the start of the Sweat Challenge, you have up until Monday, 4 July to sign up.
If you leave the Sweat Challenge, you won’t be able to rejoin once the entry period closes. This means in order to participate for the full six weeks and access the limited time workouts, you’ll need to stay registered.
What happens at the end of the Sweat Challenge?
After the Sweat Challenge, you can choose to continue your previous Sweat program where you left off, progress to a different week or start a new program.
