6 Week Body Transformation

6-week body transformation

Embarking on a 6-week body transformation journey can be both exciting and daunting. It’s a commitment to yourself, your health, and your well-being. But you’re probably wondering what results you can expect to achieve in this time.

Results will vary from person to person depending on how you change your lifestyle, but everyone should expect to see an improvement in the following:

1) Increased Energy Levels. As you adopt a healthier lifestyle, including regular exercise and balanced nutrition, you’ll notice a significant boost in your energy levels. Say goodbye to those midday slumps and hello to sustained vitality throughout the day.

2) Improved Strength and Muscle Tone. With consistent resistance training, your muscles will become stronger and more defined. Whether you’re lifting weights, doing bodyweight exercises, or practicing yoga, you’ll see real progress in your strength and muscle tone. While significant muscle growth might not occur within six weeks, you’ll notice improvements in muscle shape and firmness. Resistance training not only improves muscle tone but also increases strength. You may find that you’re able to lift heavier weights or that you can perform exercises easier, as your strength improves.

3) Weight Loss and Fat Reduction. While weight loss will vary from person to person, you can expect to lose a noticeable amount of weight over six weeks. Depending on your starting weight and body composition, this can vary from a few pounds to several pounds. Along with weight loss, you are also likely to see a reduction in body fat percentage which is important for improving overall health and achieving a leaner, more defined form.

4) Improved Cardiovascular Fitness. Engaging in cardiovascular activities such as running, cycling, or swimming will improve your heart health and endurance. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll see an increase in your cardiovascular fitness, allowing you to push yourself further, meaning that you are able to exercise for longer periods of time or at higher intensities without feeling as fatigued.

5) Better Posture and Flexibility. Incorporating stretching and mobility exercises into your routine will not only improve your flexibility but also correct posture imbalances. As you become more mindful of your body’s alignment, you’ll stand taller and move more easily.

6) Healthy Eating Habits. Through mindful eating and portion control, you’ll develop healthier eating habits that nourish your body and support your fitness goals. By prioritising whole foods and minimising processed foods and sugary treats, you’ll fuel your body for optimal performance.

7) Boosted Confidence, improved mood and Mental Well-being. As you see positive changes in your body and overall health, your confidence will escalate. 

If you are thinking that you’d like to see these changes in yourself, you’re probably wondering what you need to do for six weeks to achieve them. Remember that everybody will have different results as this will depend on your starting point, dedication and consistency.

Here’s a 6-week nutrition and fitness body transformation programme designed to help you kickstart your fitness journey and achieve your goals:

Weeks 1-2 Foundation Building

Monday/Wednesday/Friday – Full body strength training (30 minutes each day). Either use our 30-minute resistance-based circuit here at W Fitness or use the body positive workout from my last blog on these days.

Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday – Cardiovascular exercise at moderate intensity (30-45 minutes each day). Either go swimming, running or for a brisk walk.

Sunday – Rest or active recovery. This could be light yoga, stretching or a leisurely walk.


Focus on eating more whole, nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats.

Eat balanced meals consisting of a protein source such as chicken breast, lean beef, fish and lentils, complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, kidney beans and quinoa, and healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, olive oil and fatty fish.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day, aiming for 2 to 3 litres.

Limit processed foods, sugary snacks and high calories drinks.

Weeks 3-4 – Intensification

Monday/Wednesday/Friday – Increase intensity in strength training by adding more resistance/weight or decreasing rest between sets.

Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday – Increase the time and/or speed of your cardiovascular workouts, for added calorie burn and cardiovascular conditioning.

Sunday – Continue with active recovery sessions on rest days to promote muscle recovery and flexibility.


Check portion sizes to make sure that you are having the appropriate number of calories for your body and goals.

Add more lean proteins into your diet to support muscle growth and repair.

Include a variety of colourful fruit and vegetables to ensure that you are getting a wide range of nutrients.

Be mindful of snacking and aim for healthier options such as nuts, yogurt or fruit.

Weeks 5-6 – Progression

Monday/Wednesday/Friday – Increase the intensity and reduce the rest time to challenge your muscles further.

Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday – Experiment with different types of cardio exercise such as HIIT to keep your workouts engaging and effective.

Sunday – Prioritise adequate rest and recovery to prevent overtraining and to promote optimal performance.


Fine-tune your meal plan to ensure you’re meeting your macronutrient and calorie needs.

Consider tracking your food intake using a food diary or app to stay accountable, track amounts and adjust as needed.

Focus on whole, minimally processed foods to support overall health and well-being.

Practice mindful eating by paying attention to hunger and fullness cues and avoiding emotional eating triggers.

Plan your meals and snacks so that you are not tempted to grab a less healthy alternative when you are hungry. 

Throughout the 6-week programme, remember to listen to your body and adjust your workouts and nutrition plan accordingly. Consistency, dedication, and patience are key to achieving lasting results. Celebrate your progress along the way and let this be the kickstart to a healthier lifestyle, staying committed to your health and fitness journey.

Much Love
