This summer, chefs will go head-to-head and compete in a four-week work out challenge at Style Fitness as part of a new reality show called U Bet I Will. They'll be training under the watchful eye of Mauricio Reyes.
This season will be documented in good ol’ reality show format—photos, videos and day-to-day coverage coming to you this June on City Weekend.
Keep an eye on this page for all the latest updates.
Chefs meet at Style Fitness for a briefing of the program. Here's how it's going to go down:
U Bet I Will is a reality show that allows followers to support their champion chefs and to bet on their performance. There will be one chef who emerges at the top at the end of four weeks.
The winner is the chef who collected the highest number of points at the end of the training according to the scoring system below:
- Commitment: 100 points per session attended
- Calories: 1 point per calorie lost
- Popularity: 5 points per like on social media (WeChat, Instagram, Facebook with the mention to @stylefitness)
- Teamwork: good team players during team workout will receive 100 points
- Charisma: Chefs will receive 50 points per bet received from followers (see below)
Win Classes at Style Fitness AND Give To Charity
People are encouraged to support one champion by submitting "bets" through Style Fitness on WeChat. You can only choose ONE chef and place ONE bet.
If your chef wins, you'll get THREE classes at Style Fitness.
If your chef doesn't win, you get ONE class.
RMB10 will go to a charity organization selected by the chef.
Double your chances! If your chef wins, you'll get SIX classes at Style Fitness.
If your chef doesn't win, you still get TWO classes to try out.
RMB20 will go to a charity organization selected by the chef.
That's either RMB100 for 3 free classes, or RMB100 for 1 free class. Pretty good deal either way. Most cocktails/burgers cost way more than that in this town.
How To Submit Your Bet:
Scan this QR Code to support your chef (and basically pay up front for a workout class) and add a note with "UBIW" followed by the name of the chef.
Example: UBIW-Michael Wendling.
The full list of chefs have been revealed! A total of 16 chefs have willingly signed up and are ready to begin their four weeks of training. View the full list here.
The first training session begins. Mauricio lines them up for a high-intensity work out. Chefs continue to work out in teams for Day 2 and have fun boxing for Day 3.
There will only be one chef at the top! Chefs gather points through a number of ways, including calculating the number of calories burned after each session, social media likes and attendance. They also get more points if you "bet" on them to win, which gets you classes at Style Fitness. Check the list below to see who's in the lead!
After a week of boxing, box jumping, FHIIT...the chefs take to the streets. Well, at least in the compound of Ambassy Court. To be fair, they make running in 35-degree weather effortless.
The next week will be crucial on the final results. The chefs will have to keep to their routine of three days a week, to watch their diet and to get people to bet on them for a final totaling of points to see who emerges at the top.
17 chefs, 5 trainers and 5 different training styles for three sessions a week for a month has paid off. Click here for the photo gallery! And click here to find out more about the next season of UBIW and watch the final round up video.
